Autumn in South Korea – Gangnam

I often hear the word “Gangnam” from Psy’s “Gangnam Style”.  It was merely a song for me and I didn’t bother to check what it was or what it meant.  When we were in Seoul, I found out that it was actually a district which was known for the high standard of living, expensive real estate and everything else related to the lifestyle of the rich and the famous.

As a homebody, the “night life” doesn’t attract me.  Clubbing has never been one of my interests.  Since my friends really wanted to go to Club Octagon in Gangnam, I was once again forced errr…uhmm…convinced.

From Hyehwa, we took a cab directly to Club Octagon.  We told the driver “New Hill Top Hotel” in English.  Club Octagon was just beside it.  Taxi fare was around KRW 10,000-12,000.

Club Octagon

Entrance fee before 11pm: KRW 10,000

Entrance fee after 11pm: KRW 30,000

Of course, we didn’t want to pay triple just for the entrance fee so we went there before 11 pm.  When we got there, we were surprised that the entrance was free!  It was their anniversary promotion.  We were lucky.  🙂  If you go there, make sure you bring an ID which shows your date of birth, otherwise, they won’t let you in.  Unless, you look really old.  Hahaha  Just kidding.

Care for a drink?

I forgot what we ordered but it was good. All thanks to Joan! 😀

The ladies really dressed-up.  I mean they were wearing heavy make-up and skimpy outfits.   As what I’ve said, I’m a homebody.  I’m not used to this.  😛

The first DJ

He was the DJ when we got there.  I’m sorry I forgot his name.  He was playing techno music (not a fan).  Even if it was still around 11pm, there were already a lot of people inside the club.

Hip-hop and R&B

The party officially started when the next DJs played hip-hop and r&b.  There was a surprise appearance of a famous local celebrity.  I didn’t know who he was.

Cheers to a great night!

Let’s just leave this as the last photo.  What happens in Gangnam, stays in Gangnam. *wink*
