Review: Jinju Massage – Seoul, South Korea

Rockit Reports draws in hundreds of thousands of viewers per month. Some are return readers but others find their way here by following links or search engine results. Since this website covers such a vast variety of locations and venues readers can find it while looking for any of a number of things.

South Korea has long been one of the most popular topics here. The website was banned throughout much of South Korea a few years ago without warning but people continue to seek out Rockit Reports for information. Those in country or who are otherwise looking for country specific details can refer to Rokit Reports but everyone else can come here where the country will continue to be covered in detail.

Jinju Massage is a popular massage parlor in the Gangnam section of Seoul. It is a much more thorough place than other nearby massage parlors like Belle and Cool which have been reviewed here in the past.

Unlike many of the adult oriented establishments in South Korea this place is totally friendly to foreigners even when they cannot speak the local language. The shop has signs in multiple languages and the people on staff can all speak at least a little English.

Jinju Massage is located right out in the open though it could conceivably be easy to miss since it is situated on a side street and only a block away from another massage parlor with a similar exterior. The main landmark in the area is the Hotel Dynasty Seoul which is just around the corner from the place under review here.

Most customers probably travel to Jinju Massage with the aid of Seoul’s popular mass transit system. Stops like Gangnam, Sinnonhyeon, Nonhyeon and Eonju are all in walking distance.

Once they arrive at the well-marked black glass front customers enter and remove their shoes. They place their footwear in one of the available lockers and take the key before heading up a small step and over to the front counter where they book their sessions.

The young men who work the front desk at Jinju are friendly enough and capable of speaking at least enough English to deal with foreign customers. Locals are much more common but as stated the management warmly welcomes people from around the world who are able to understand and follow the way things work.

A single session at Jinju Massage costs 130,000 Won ($110 USD). The fee is paid up front. Once it is settled customers can walk down a hallway and into a changing room where they will find a male attendant. This attendant seems to watch television more than anything else though he is helpful in directing customers when needed.

Things are pretty self explanatory. Customers find an available locker and put their clothes and other belongings inside. Then they take the key and keep it with them. After that they walk into the large communal shower room where they are expected to clean their bodies and brush their teeth. They can also partake in the available tubs if they want to soak.

Once they are down wetting themselves down customers head back toward the lockers and grab a towel to dry off with. Then they can pick up one of the available pairs of robes and shorts before notifying the attendant that they are ready for their session to begin.

At this point customers are led down a long maze of seemingly endless hallways until they reach one of the available rooms. There they wait until the first of two female attendants shows up to take care of them.

The first attendants are made up of a team of women in their forties who are professionally trained in the art of the massage. While they are not supermodels by any means they are generally attractive. They wear short skirts and polo shirts and are generally friendly even though few can speak any English. They are certainly skilled in body rubs too and that is what matters most when it comes to their positions.

These attendants give customers thorough rub downs that last close to an hour. They are purely therapeutic until the end. At that point a second attendant arrives to provide a happy ending. In order to get the customers ready for these second wave gals the original body rub girls work on the lower bits. Once the customers are fully and visibily engaged the body rub women leave so that the session can continue.

The second attendants are generally very attractive. Most of them cannot speak much English either but they know their jobs well. They are mainly in their twenties and shapely with sexy lingerie making them look even better. Each person has their own way of doing things but in a typical session the second gal will drop her top and give her customer a bit of access. Then she’ll preform a bit of oral before finishing everything off with a lubed up round of hand service.

Once customers complete the secondary attendants clean them up before leading them back down the labyrinth of halls to the locker room. There customers can clean up again with the showers or simply put their gear back on and leave.

Jinju Massage is a well functioning and clean massage parlor with a competent staff that knows what they are doing. I think the place deserves four stars mainly because of the level and involvement given in comparison to other nearby places like the above mentioned Cool and Belle. Probably the biggest drawback is the cost which is around what good jack shacks in the middle of New York charge though it must be remembered that Seoul is one of the largest cities on earth.

    Wow. Rockit. You are just around my home now. I’ve heard of Jinju massage many times. It is one of the longest running massages in Seoul and I am not surprised that they welcome foreigners as well. Dd you have a FS for 130,000won ?
    Most similar massage include it as far as I know. Probably the second session lasts about 15 min!! If you need help,(I don’t you do but) you can write me to the email address. Cheers!

    That’s awesome.

    An hour of a normal massage and then the masseuse is swapped out for a handjob attendant at the end. It literally sounds like an AV come to life.

    Is this format standard practice in South Korea?

    • rockit says:

      There are quite a few places that follow a similar format but sometimes they have their own variations. Cheers.

    • Deca says:

      Yes. It is a very standard practice in S. Korea. Most of the girls at the massage do CIM if the rate is 90,000 won and above. If the rate is 50,000~80,000, only some bj and a happy ending handie. Cheers!

    $110 in Asia……… smh

    • rockit says:

      South Korea is a developed economy and surpasses many parts of the West. It hasn’t been an underdeveloped impoverished country in some time. Rates are on usually on par with similarly developed countries. Sometimes they are lower. Cheap sexual services are still available but they tend to be of lower quality just as they are in places like New York. Cheers.

    • Deca says:

      Still cheaper than Japan. 15 min of a FS in Osaka costs about $150. You can have the same service for about $60 for an hour in Bangkok, I’ve had a massage and a hj for 500bt about ($15) after some negotiating a few times. I’ve had FS for all night in Phnom Penh for $15. It really varies where you go in Asia. Cheers!!

    visited Jinju last week, very enjoyable. Bit of a long wait – 45 mins or so – for service, but bearable. Massage starts off very therapeutic and robust then gets increasingly erotic. Finger tip massage all over the body, ass massage, and finally oil massage on your balls and landing strip. Then the second girl arrives in mini dress and heels and pops her tits out. No oral but nice catbath, tits access and lubed handjob. Also went to Tiffany which is a little more expensive at 160k won, slightly different set up. First massage is longer, an hour, and a genuinely great experience, but not erotic. Then the second girl comes and it include topless light oral plus hand job. Overall i think i preferred jinju, more of a cultural adventure, but both good.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the report. That is indeed a long wait. They must have been busy or short staffed. I’m not sure whether or not I’m familiar with Tiffany. Could you give more information? Cheers.

  5. topic says:

    Sure. It’s on the same street, and same side, as the one that Jinju is just off. If you were to come out of Jinju and turn left down the main road, away from the Ritz Carlton, and keep walking for about 10 mins, after a crossing you’ll see a black sign with white lettering in Korean and the word massage in red in English. Ground floor entrance on the main road. Just inside on the wall it says ‘Tiffany’ with an arrow down to the basement. Head down and there’s a friendly Korean guy on reception. The shorts and t-shirt they give you after the shower are a bit shabby, and a nice Guantanomo orange, but otherwise lot of fun. Very robust hour of massage then a cute girl in a white party dress came in, stripped to the waist for the bj/hj finish. Btw Ace Anma seems to be closed for renovation temporarily at least.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks the information. The place sounds vaguely familiar though I can’t be sure whether or not I’ve seen it before. Cheers.

    Will visit jinju later today and report back later. Is there any place like macau sauna which you can spend more time inside beside sex. Like eating, watch tv, and different ertoic massages?

    • rockit says:

      There are some anmas in Seoul that sort of resemble Macau saunas though they don’t really compare. The various anmas have their own policies and many forbid foreigners to enter. Cheers.

    • Deca says:

      I”ve seen some sauna very similar to a Macau sauna but they cost about the same or even more. But it is not the norm in Seoul. Many sauna let you sleep including Jinju above(I think) but the only free food you get is a bowl of ramen noodles. Some have in a house restaurant and you can just pay. The facility would be much smaller as well. And no line up and you just have to go with some profile or whatever the papasan gives you. In my opinion, Macau saunas would be still the best saunas in the world for men. Mainland China also has many similar saunas like in Macau but with no lineup and they are very discreet as to the service and sometimes you get nothing but just a hj even for a 900 cyn(about 150 usd) in some lux spa. Cheers!

    It is snowing in seoul. Well Now I can understanding why this is rated a 4 stars. I believe the extra star was from the first massage. My finger got slamed by the glass door that lead to the shower. It was a good experience overall. Wish the last part of massage from 1st person last longer. I dont mind pay extra to have another 15mins.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for your report. Seoul did indeed receive its first snow of the year today. I guess your name fits well then. Cheers!
