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.
