Popular Spots

Saunas and Jjimjilbang

      Some of the businesses listed here are noted to be traditional Korean jjimjilbang, or overnight sleeping facilities. Jjimjilbang may not have a sauna, or even hot water facilities, although they may function as de facto cruising spaces for Korean gays. Facilities at Jjimjilbang tend to be modest compared to more sophisticated urban saunas and bathhouses.

    • Grand Spa Hurshimchung UTOPIAN VERIFIED APR 2015
        Hotel Nongshim, Dong Nae

        Easy to find. Take the Metro to Oncheonjang Station on Line 1 (No. 127). Leave the station at Exit 1 and turn to your left and walk with the highway to your right. Walk about 5 minutes to the first crosswalk at the first intersection. Turn right to cross the street towards the GS 25 convenience store on the corner and pass it on your right. Walk 5 minutes and you will pass a bowling alley and a Wooribank on the corner of a large intersection. Across the street to your right you will see a store, Gallery. Cross the street towards Gallery and around the corner in back of Gallery you will see Hotel Nongshim about 200m down the street to your right. The Hurshimchung Spa is in back of the hotel (look for the dome of the spa atrium behind). You can enter the hotel and go to 2/F and take the walkway to the spa. It is a 10-15 minute walk from the Metro Station. Not gay, but a must-see. A huge, well-known, natural hot spring bathing complex with pools, caves, waterfalls, saunas, and steam rooms. Completely nude and dozens of guys all ages. Sports teams hang out, lounging around, rough-housing, exercising, whatever. Obviously, this place is popular with gays. Anyone can use the spa, not just hotel guests. Very inexpensive. Open until midnight.

      Comments from Utopians:

      "Gay play spaces (showers, lockers, dark rooms, free condoms) in Busan, starting from Beomil Subway Station (117). Line 1, Exit 2:

      2번출구: from Exit 2 turn around, 4m on your right. Black round sign at the entrance of the building. 2/F. Entry: W$12000. Foreigners friendly, mostly older men, 60+.

      K: from Exit 2, straight 200m, Busan bank on your left, turn left 100m. CU convenience store on the right, 3rd floor above CU. Entry: W$12,000. Foreigner-friendly, mostly middle-aged and 50+. Place is not clean enough and smelly.

      Hunk: follow directions for K above, but instead of going to K, go straight about 20m, turn right, and after 5m look up at the building on your right and you'll see a sign in english (Hunk Membership) on 4/F. Semi-friendly for foreigners (they overcharge foreigners 50% more, W$20,000) and sometimes reject foreigners for no reason! The place is the cleanest of all. Mostly young people, all body shapes.

      Jackpot: after you get to Hunk go straight, you'll see a narrow alley ahead, don't enter the alley, turn left. Pass 3 more alleys and turn right in the 4th alley. You'll see the sign in english. Not friendly for foreigners (overcharging 50% more, W$20,000) and age restricted under 40, They ask for IDs. Foreigners mostly rejected. Koreans get rejected if they're overweight!" -- THMIN, Feb 27, 2023
