What we're about
Upcoming events (4)
We've been there many times... mostly un-planned visits after events (Hayride, K-pop, etc.). Several members recently asked to get an event there on our schedule. This will be a good event for new members.
The food is delicious, the atmosphere is very Korean, and it's open 24 hours a day. We won't expect any drama or fight (see the video link below), and will treat all members in a kind and caring way! :)
The last time we went at 5pm or 5:30pm on a Sunday and there was no wait. (lucky... because at 6:30pm there was probably a 30 minute wait). On Fridays and Saturdays the wait can be very long.
When to go? Post your comments below. (If you are an organizer, please don't pick the date & time unless you will also organize the event.)
How many times to go? Many!

Speedy Scandal / Scandal Makers / 과속스캔들
Monday, May 23, 6:30 PM, AFI
Wednesday, May 25, 6:30 PM, AFI
First-time director Kang Hyung-chul scored a box-office hit with this bright, fizzy comedy, which has already been tapped for a Hollywood remake. Cha Tae-hyun plays Hyun-soo, a radio DJ whose swinging bachelor lifestyle screeches to a halt when a young woman shows up at his door claiming to be his daughter, along with a little boy she asserts is his grandson. Now Hyun-soo must try to save his career from the resulting scandal while adjusting to his new family. This delightful confection is full of great comic performances, including by the adorable Wang Suk-hyun, who steals the show as Hyun-soo's grandson.
Dir.: Kang Hyung-chul
