All I wanna do is PC Bang, Bang, Bang.

A PC Bang sign. As you can see Koreans are not huge on respecting copyrights/trademarks.

Coming up on my fourth month in the Republic of Korea, I still haven't made it to any of this country's ubiquitous PC Bangs (pronounced PC + that thing your college roomate smoked out of while eating all the mustard in your fridge). For those of you that aren't familiar with them, PC Bangs are Korean internet cafes/gaming clubs which hit the scene around 1997. They offer cheap LAN multiplayer, some sorely needed social contact for Korea's tech-obsessed youth and ,in many, even restaurant style food and drink. Ever wonder why Starcraft continues to move units a decade after its release? Look no further than here. Blizzard's space RTS's popularity in Korea is legion; with dedicated Starcraft gaming channels and big money competetive championships.

I've been considering checking them out this weekend and was curious to see if anyone was interested in some pics and a write up about the experience. Let me know what you think.
