This Hongdae area norebang (kareoke) bar is hilarious. The large glass windows allow exhibitionists to sing in front of an audience: people passing on the street. There are ladders in each room leading up to private bunks with pillows. I like it for 2 reasons. 1.) It looks like a doll house for big people. 2.) From the street it might appear that I have a decent voice!

The night shot of Suwon, above, looks like an American painter's work. Can you guess whose?

Great photos; they are like windows framing different angles of life in Korea. I thought I'd struggle to think of an American painter, but as I looked at the photo again, Edward Hopper's work came to mind...

why do they have bunks in a norebang?

Hopper it is! You guys are good.

For style. I doubt many people actually climb the ladder and sit there but there are a bunch of pillows piled up, the area might be cozy for a couple to hang out, if they weren't on display for the entire world to see!

Cool pics! (I still want to know how high the ISO on your camera goes.)

I've never really liked bibimbap--something about having everything all stirred up together, I think, and then it all sort of tastes the same.
