Traditional Pub



Currently a Dutch friend of mine is in Seoul for his trip. This is the first bar he visited in Seoul and another friend of ours brilliantly picked up the Korean traditional pub. In the middle of the photo, you can see straw sandals hanging on the wall, which our ancestors used to wear. Another interesting on the wall is that, below the shoes, you can see a portrait photo of Guus Hiddink from the Netherlands, a legendary coach to us who was in the centre of Korean team's accomplishment up to the semi-final 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan and is currently leading Russian national team. My friend was glad to see a person from his country.

This pub looks similar to a Japanese pub. Hope you all had a good time!

That looks like a good place to have a drink. What should we order, by the way?

hahahahahaah great to see that sir hiddink is still a legend for you. He just won a price last week that only Johan Cruijf and Rinus Michels won. for us he is no hero but he is one of our best rainers we got.
Have fun with your friends and enjoy your weekend

nice bar! what's the name of the bar?

Sunkyoung said...

BW - Yes, we did. Thank you!

Neva - Hope you will have a chance of going to this kind of pub.

Eliane - At a traditional pub, we normally order 'dongdongju' which I posted on 'Pajeon' last month.

Don - I feel like I can hear the sound of your loud laughter.:D He is and will be a hero for us forever. We'd had a great time together and I wish you a nice weekend.

Willem - We didn't have a bear cake at this bar. What did you refer with 'they' in your last sentence?

Dalicia - The name is 'Hobak(pumpkin),' which seemed to have nothing to do with the name, though.

What do you drink, and what do you eat there? You must go back for some good shots!

Willem said...

they ? ... well, just them bears i meant real and living ones...
never mind; just silly joke
in movies or maybe in the wild wild west or in ancient romans times it may have been as an attraction...
in " modern" citylife nowadays i doubt..

Meg - My friends were drink dongdongju and pajeon, the same menu as I posted on the 14th of Aug.

Willem - I think that sometimes the modern city life makes people miss what is old.
