Deulmusae: A Whole Lot of Penis in Pocheon

The penis. As unattractive as it may be, it has remained to be an important symbol of strength, fertility and power in cultures all the world over since the beginning of time.  From ancient Pompeii to Egyptian hieroglyphics to the costumes of modern day tribesmen of New Guinea, phallic imagery has been used unabashedly. Unsurprisingly, the penis has played just as an important role in Korean culture.

Undiscovered Seoul: The City's Best Off the Beaten Path Destinations

N'Seoul Tower. Gyeongbokgung. Myeongdong. Garuso-gil.  Very few tourists come to Seoul without these must-see attractions at the top of their to-do lists.  And for good reason, as each offers a unique insight into Korea's capital city.  However, there is a different Seoul waiting to be explored by the more curious traveler.  In fact, there is a myriad of destinations perfect for the adventurer looking to venture a bit further off the beaten path.

The five places in Seoul you're not partying at - yet

When it comes to partying, Hongdae or Itaewon are the two areas that come to mind. They cater to foreigners, offer cheap drink specials, and are the places to see lots of other foreigners. If you're tired of being catered to, however, here are 5 areas where the locals go to get their party on.

As a general rule, you won't stay out partying all night unless you're in Hongdae or Itaewon. Enough of those places stay open until the subways start up again, but few places in other areas will. If you're deadset on taking the first morning subway home, however, it can be done. Another thing to remember: most places will have tables and booths for groups. A couple will be fine, but you'll have a better time with a larger group - say, 4 to 6 people.
