What you'll do

We'll walk and hop around many of the gay places in Itaewon—a neighborhood on the hill in the middle of town.
We'll start with a cup of coffee, and I'll explain how the LGBTQ community found its roots in this area in the rather conservative country of South Korea.
Then we'll visit bars, each with a different style. I will give you options to choose from. Later, we will move on to a club that suits your taste. Choose from K-Pop, circuit, stylish, and house styles—and we'll dive in.
Cover pricing differs depending on gender and day of the week, so please bring enough cash to enter.
We'll go for a snack in the middle of our clubbing—or anytime you feel hungry.
We will not go to lesbian clubs, but if you're interested I can give you tips on where to go.

Male - 10,000 ~ 15,000 KRW (Up to 15 USD)

I was born and raised—and still live—in the neighborhood of Itaewon. I also organize own party once year during summer. I see this culture as everyday life. I have had many friends in this community, and opportunities to understand and join in. Now I want to share this special experience.

Jay is very friendly and welcoming. Although something happened that he was running late, he communicated and we were able to meet up easily enough. He gave some background on the development of Itaewon and “Homo Hill” and seemed to genuinely care about his guests. I would have hesitated to walk into the bars/clubs on my own, so it was great to accompany Jay who knows the area well.

This was the best gay nightlife tour I've taken! Jay provides historical and cultural context and is super knowledgeable about the destination, culture and how it fits into an overall world view. Plus, he's friendly, energetic and was great about introducing me to his own friends as we explored the exciting nightlife. A tour with Jay is an excellent introduction to the local gay nightlife scene for any first timer!

I had the privilege of experiencing Seoul gay night life with Jay on my very first night in Korea. Jay is a stellar representative of his country and the Korean gay community. He went out of his way to make my introduction to the country the best it could be. We started with coffee and a talk about the history and culture of Itaewon. Jay was very welcoming, and I immediately felt as though I had a friend and partner in my travel experience. We proceeded to the various bars and night clubs, and it was a blast. I was a solo traveler, and this was the perfect way to experience the nightlife without having any familiarity or other people to go out with. It’s important that an experience like this is available, given the conservative culture in Korea. It’s really great there is someone available to help tourists experience this important part of the country. If you have any interest in LGBT life in Korea, this is for you.
