As I’ve previously mentioned several times, South Korea has a wide and varied pay for play sex industry. Some of it is quite creative or some may even say strange. As I’ve also mentioned, most of it is off limits to people who are not Korean. One exception to that (outside of places like Belle, Hooker Hill, and independents) are the Kiss Bangs, which are basically make out rooms staffed with hot college girls that charge various rates.
Bang is the Korean word for room. So you can find things like DVD Bangs (private rooms to watch movies) or Noraebangs (private Karaoke rooms). Kiss Bangs are rooms for kissing. Make sense?
A lot of very hot sexy young women work in these places. In a few shops you can get a hand job or a foot job. Occasionally you’ll be able to suck some nice perky tits. Usually though, you just sit and chat, make out and maybe cuddle for a set period of time.
Many girls will be shy when they first meet you. That’s probably true even if you’re Korean, but if you’re not it can be very noticeable. Just break the ice and be a decent person and it shouldn’t last long. There are reports of some girls staying frigid throughout the appointment, but in my limited experience with these kinds of shops that hasn’t happened.
The experience is pretty straight forward. You enter, pay a set fee to the guy working the counter who usually speaks decent English, then you’ll be taken to a bathroom where you have to brush your teeth and use some mouth rinse. Next you’ll get led into a room and wait. Your girl will come in, sit down next to you and often set some ground rules. After that you can begin the fun, stopping when the time is up. You’ll head back to the restroom to brush again and then your mini-vacation is over.
Appointments are sold in blocks of time, like 20 minute, 30 minute and 1 hour sessions. There are usually discounts for longer appointments paid up front, but if you extend a shorter appointment you’ll pay full price. You can also set a series of short appointments with multiple women. Repeat customers seem to get the best treatment, for obvious reasons, but a lot of the women who work in these places don’t last long. This is usually temporary side work to pocket a few bucks.
The clerks here will often ask what kind of girl you want. The best answer to that is pretty with big boobs. You don’t really have to worry about fat girls or old girls here, but there are some rail thin chicks occasionally. This answer will give you the best chance at getting the top girl available during your visit.
The privacy is good. Things are well managed so that the only people you will ever see are the door clerks and the women you’ll be serviced by.
The women all tend to be cute. Some of them can even speak quite a bit of English since they’ve been learning it in school. Others have next to none. In both situations I’ve still had fun.
I’ll list some shops I’ve visited here. There are lots more. If you can read Korean at all the signs are easy to spot. Sometimes they’re even in English. If you discover something good, please let me know.
Note that I’ve updated this short list as of August 11, 2013. I had a chance to visit Seoul again recently and found that some of the places I mentioned have either shut down or I forgot where the hell they were. I recorded the locations of Kiss Bangs in my phone before this website was launched, and the original post was based on those limited notes. Now, with the website going strong, I’ve been able to located a handful of shops and (by popular demand) map them out.

Kiss Time (Sadang) – The easiest kiss bang of all to find. This should help some of the readers who have had trouble locating places in the past. Go out of Sadang Station’s exit 4. Walk a few meters and look for the Dunkin Donuts shop on your right. This kiss bang is on the third floor of that building. Easy to find, with an easy going owner who told me he has no issue with respectful non-Korean customers. The price is 40,000 won ($37 US) for 30 minutes or 70,000 ($65 US) won for an hour.
Kiss Time (Hongdae) – Go out exit one of Hongdae Ipgu station and make the immediate right, then make the first left. About three-quarters of the way down this street you’ll see a red brick building on your right. The kiss bang is on the second floor. The blocked out windows are the give away. Run of the mill place with standard rates.
7 Kiss Bang – Same prices as the other two shops. Take exit 8 out of Hongdae Ipgu station and make the first right turn. At the first intersection turn left and then immediately go right at the fork in the road. Halfway up the block on the right you will see the front of this Kiss Bang, which is a strange blue color, on the second floor. Kissing seems to be a little more intense here, but everything else is about the same. The women working here have a little more range in age from what I can see, stretching from 20 to about 30. Extras are sometimes available, but it depends on the woman you get and your chemistry with her. The price is again 40,000 won ($37 US) for 30 minutes or 70,000 ($65 US) won for an hour.
There are or at least were a lot of shops in Sinchon, but I couldn’t find any during my last visit. With a very short trip I didn’t have a lot of time to explore. I have also been to a kiss bang near Sincheon station that finished the session with a nice hand job and one more around Hongik University that finished with me jacking myself off while my temporary date tongued my mouth out. Unfortunately both of these places seem to be long gone. There are many more around, and new ones pop up all the time, I just don’t have any exact locations at the moment. I’ll update this if I get some.
Anything more than kissing and touching the girls above the waist seems to get shops in trouble, so it’s usually frowned upon. Extras are at the full discretion of the service provider. Follow the rules for your sake and the sake of the girl. If you get lucky you get lucky, if not, enjoy the lips and nips.
One way to find these places is just to look around. Another is to look at the little cards all over the ground nearly everywhere in Seoul. These advertise all sorts of sex shops, including kiss bangs. They usually have directions and English information on them. The hardest part about it is not looking like an ass when you pick one up off the sidewalk.
Full service is available in Korea at very reasonable rates, and finding freebies to fuck isn’t too tough either. But for a no hassle make out session with a college coed, kiss rooms are hard to beat! Most shops are open from noon until very late in the night.
