make it in seoul. I'm in Incheon. You won't get many people to come to Daegu, it's pretty far from everywhere but Busan.
 
2012-09-21 07:20:11 AM  
seoul is much better, im here too
 
2012-09-21 07:20:56 AM  
I lived in Korea for 2 years, if I was still there I'd be down. You should make it Seoul though, who the hell wants to go to Daegu?
 
2012-09-21 07:28:05 AM  
I agree: Seoul is best. It's the easiest place to get to from anywhere in the country. There are plenty of places in the Itaewon district where we can meet.

I suggest the weekend after Chuseok, when travel gets back to normal.

Daegu, I thought that sounded familiar so I looked it up on a map (google). I've spent a lot of time in Changwon in the past (Incheon too). Though I've probably spent a year or more in Korea over 14 different visits, I've not been back in well over 10 years :( I miss the late night food trucks in Changwon.

Good luck arranging a FP in Daegu, subby. Might try the Seoul suggestion or maybe Busan, depending on the responses you get. Knock back a cup of dong-dong-ju for me.

I'm in Seoul.

I was there providing automation for heavy industry. I did run into a few English teachers while there. Waiting on a flight at Kimpo one time, I chatted briefly with a soldier in the US Army who seemed quite proud that in all his time deployed to Korea he had never eaten any Korean food. Just sad.

Who the hell goes to another country and doesn't at least partake of their food? Christ, he missed out.

I'd have to take a ferry over from Fukuoka, and then a bus or something. Coming back while under the influence of a Fark party may be problematic.

Hooray for Fukuoka. Delightful place. If I were still there I'd go up to Korea :)

Oh, how I miss Itaewon.

I'm in Pyongyang!

I've been to Daegu. I stayed at the Hotel Inter-Burgo or something like that. Nice place. I was working at Camp Walker at the time. I've been to Seoul and Busan too. I'd love to go back.
 
2012-09-21 12:00:59 PM  
Damnit, the year after I leave Korea there's a Fark party. I would suggest Seoul as well. Hongdae has some awesome nightlife.
 
2012-09-21 12:06:34 PM  
I could do it at Seoul, I don't know that area though, a local would have to figure that part out.
 
2012-09-21 12:15:42 PM  
I had some Korean friends show me around Daegu. They took me to pizza hut for lunch and spent a ridiculous amount on a pepperoni pizza. They we're trying to make me feel at home I guess. I requested Korean food after that. Much much better, and less expensive too. A bowl of ramen with cheese is really good drunk food too, but only if you use chopsticks.

I was going to say this would be good. If only there is a collective drunken Gangnam Style video to be posted after.

I agree, but seeing non-dancers try to do it... well, ok, it's amusing. For 23 seconds or so.
 
2012-09-21 06:36:33 PM  
Daegu? Bah!
 
2012-09-21 09:49:38 PM  
I am in Daegu and would be down if I dash,t going to Japan for the next week. Daegu is not as huge as Seoul, but there is still lots of stuff to do here. Army 20 months in Korea
 
2012-09-21 11:38:01 PM  
If we make it Seoul I'm in. Itaewon, Hongdae or Sincheon would be good areas.
 
2012-09-22 12:56:11 AM  
You wanna have fun in Daegu? Get into a cab and say "Chawg all moon dong".
You're welcome.
 
2012-09-22 01:30:41 AM  
I'm in Gumi. Daegu would be more convenient, but Seoul would be more fun.
 
2012-09-22 01:42:00 AM  
yeah another vote for Seoul and I'm in. After Chuseok though... someone mentioned Hondae which I would second as a great spot
 
2012-09-22 02:00:48 AM  
One time it took me 8 hours to drive from Osan to Seoul during Chuseok (normally less than an hour trip). Don't schedule anything during Chusoek.

Just don't take a bus or taxi and you should be fine.

Daegu? pronounced Daewoo like the South Korean car company?

Jon iz teh kewl: Daegu? pronounced Daewoo like the South Korean car company?


Yes, but it's a hard D, somewhere between a D and a T. Actually the people of Daegu pronounce it Taegu, and that's how all the English signs were written when I lived there in the 80s, but just before the Olympics in 1988 the government decided to apply the Seoul dialect to the entire peninsula, so Taegu became Daegu, Pusan became Busan, Taejon became Daejon, and so on.

I'm in Seoul - definitely worth having a party in Seoul. Next Wednesday (October 3rd) is a national holiday, which means everyone not in the military will be off of work. If Subby or anyone else around Korea wants to catch up on the weekend, I'd be down for that as well :)
 
2012-09-24 01:56:12 AM  
let's do it the weekend after chuseok. lots of people already have plans this weekend so the week after is better. hongdae is my preferred location. itaewon is just dirty. also we should go to Noryangjin Fish Market (different event) and get a lot of seafood and have a huge dinner there. they cook it for you upstairs so no worries about that.
