Check out a Noraebang while Teaching English in Korea

Posted on Thu, Dec 18, 2014 @ 12:29 PM

Noraebang, or singing room as it is known is a really big part of Korean culture. Whether you are celebrating a birthday, young or old, or closing a business deal it does not matter. Even my students, who are 9 years old, will go to a Noraebang with their friends. A typical night out for most people living and teaching English in South Korea will involve sometime spent in a Noraebang. You order drinks and food and have a good time. Because Noraebangs are so popular in South Korea you can find one on every street, in fact many times there will be more than one! My favourite Noraebang place is called "OKAY NORAEBANG" and it is always busy, with every room filled on weekdays and weekends.

Noraebang (노래방) literally translates to song-room and is the Korean form of Karaoke. Despite it being of Japanese origins, nobody can doubt Korea’s affinity for this pastime. I was sitting in a noraebang in Seoul with a friend this past Sunday afternoon when I realized that these rooms had been a big part of life for me and my foreign friends while teaching English in Korea.
