  4. Not much as you expected

    “How to find Black?
    Walk From Sinnonhyeon subway station EXIT no.3 around 1 minute, and Turn left. You see ChungPyung Galbi and turn right. Go straght 2-3 minutes, You can see Nodulg-gang (restaurant), cross that restaurant, go up stair, Black is located second floor of this restaurant,. It's not so far from subway Exit.
    Black is located on the street Gangnam-daero 114-gil. You can see the sign like the picture attached.

    If you are fit asian, maybe you will get a chance to get in. How? Just silently come in, put your shoes into the locker, lock it. Then give the key to the receptionist (silently) and the fare (17000won from 7pm). He will give you another key of another locker to put all your stuff in and get naked. Then you can enjoy this place.

    BUT the guys here are not so hot. I’ve come around 7pm on Tuesday. There are only 10 guys here but not active, not so shape and fit. I’ve tried to match with anh guy but nothing happened.“

  6. The don’t allow foreigners and not fit people to come in

    “Today was there and came inside without any problem, but then forgot password from my locker and asked staff to open it in English, so they figured out that I’m foreigner and said that foreigners are not allowed. Except of this Facilities are quite nice. More or less clean. Not so many people just a few guys but good looking. Sad that I hadn’t had fun with them this time.“

  7. For the confused foreigner

    “For those who are whining about no entrance for foreigners.
    If this was Japan, would you dare revolt against it?
    On the contrary, there are foreigners who go as far as repulsing other foreginers on behalf of Japan, even though they are not the natives.
    And you know they exist over there.
    Where is the respect that you so dearly showed in Japan?
    If you have no respect just because its Korea, then Why are you keep coming back?
    Is it because koreans have the undisputed hottest bodies on the planet which you can not deny? Not even just because Asian, its because they are KOREAN :)
    Korea has even generously provided separate venues for foreigners that cater to foreigner-seeking Koreans.
    If you can't find anyone even there, doesn't that give you a big hint that Koreans (in secret) are simply not into you? That maybe you shouldn't be in korea, rather a different country?
    If you have come to see the world's best attraction, then shouldn't you at least honor the rules of the host who is providing you the show which you might have never known about?
    Venues like black, shelter, and others to come do not welcome foreigners. Even if you get lucky and sneak through entry, do not expect them to welcome you. If they do, it is their tatemae. look it up.
    You just have to accept it, like you did in Japan.
    Whoever posted these venues clearly has no respect for the Koreans, the kind of respect that can be found in Japanese only venues.
    I don't care if weeaboos come and bombard my comment with whining. It just reveals their jealousy towards Koreans.
    Whining about foreigner restriction? You can thank Japan for that because Japan invented it first. Korea just following its trend.
    As similar the language is between Korean and Japanese, the similarity extends sexual preference Japanese for Japanese only and Koreans for Koreans only.
    And fyi, I am not Korean.
    I have travelled all across Asia, that includes Japan yes Japan dont act like you are not part of asia, so I know the actual difference compared to the myths and lies that other foreigners want you to think.“

        “If your international traveler you should've known the word restriction. People and business can choose who to cater of. I guess you also have your preferences. Unless you can **** **** ***....“

    • backward

      “I am a good looking, manly, and physical fit guy; but I absolutely think condoning prejudice behavior are not acceptable. It is very close to discrimination of people based on their race, look, gender, and sexualilty. Korean need to learn about their long history of being treated as second class human by the Japanese and stop this type of prejudice again other people regardless of their race, look, and age.“

      • wow

        “wow learning from 'long history of being treated as a second class human' just sounds so offensive and rude. In fact, it was only for about 35 years that korea was ruled by japan, and long before that korea had treated japan as a second class country for over 1000 years. please think twice before you put a disrepectful comment :)

        But the important thing is that what youre saying is totally retarded. Japanese rule over Korea was cruel and not to be justified. Learning something from such a thing? Youre just being too rude.

        And saying koreans have prejudice against other races based on the venue of this cruise club is not reasonable. Go to any tourist attraction place and see if koreans are rude to foreigners. I am totally sure most koreans are rather too kind and friendly to foreigners.

        But beside that, personal sexual preference is a different thing. Many Koreans prefer having sex with Koreans. You cant say Koreans have prejudice because of this preference. Then should I have sex with a foreigner even if i dont prefer it just to show that i am not a racist?? Thats not right

        And because many koreans have sexual preference toward koreans, there are some cruise clubs that accept only koreans. If youre a foreigner, you can go to Itaewon. There you can meet foreigner-wanting koreans.“

  8. Not welcoming of foreigners

    “In my late 20's and in good shape. Tried going here twice and was told only Koreans are allowed. Speaking in Korean to the staff didn't help. Any foreign guys have any luck this year?“

    • Try your luck

      “It really depends on 3 things... 1. your look (Must be Asian, but better look like Korean) 2.the reception staffs (The young guy always let me in, but the mid-aged men was quite tricky.) 3 Action (Act like a regular customer and just put the entrance fee there, get your key and faster go in.)“

  9. Racist

    “I have been to Black many times before but the last couple of times I have gone since the new year (2016) they denied me because I'm "not Korean." I responded in Korean that I have been here many times but he refused to explain. I suggest non-foreign people keep trying to go to Black so they can see how much money they're losing based on a small few Korean customers' close-minded complaints.“
