It seems to be a right of passage that when a new teacher joins my team at ChungDahm, within the first semester we as a group must all experience Hongdae together. Hongdae, located in Eastern Seoul, is one of the most popular areas for expats and university students alike.

My Favorite Bar Game in Korea

Posted on Thu, Apr 12, 2012 @ 11:07 AM

            While teaching English in Korea and hanging out at bars, I noticed that Darts is a popular bar game. Nearly every bar in Korea has an electronic dart machine. I was never an avid dart player, but I was forced to learn since almost all my friends did. After learning though, I must admit that it is fun. Now, it’s all I play when I’m at a bar. The fact that it’s electronic makes it even more exciting. No need to worry about keeping score while you’re intoxicated or arguing with your competitor about the correct score. Also, the awesome sound effect when you hit bull’s eye, triple, or double, livens up the celebration.  It’s also the perfect game to socialize with new friends or that special interest you meet at the bar. So, just in case you’re a newbie at darts just like I was, below is an explanation of how to play my favorite dart board game.
