    Well, Seoul is a big place. If you've read the whole thread, then you have the general idea. Beyond that, it's best to wait until you know which part of the city you'll be in and then post again so we can suggest some place close to you. As for finding people who post here in order to play with them, that's trickier. As far as I know, only 3 or so posters to this thread seem to live in Seoul. I seem to post most of the answers in the Korean part of the forum but I have never actually played in Seoul so all I can do is help you find a nearby club, once you know where that is.

    Hi Tanzent, good to hear from you.

    Most of the people who check here are looking for a place to play only a few times or otherwise short term. Can you give us some details on which gyms in Yangcheon-gu or Gangseo-gu are the easiest to play at as a drop-in player? As far as I know, the Magok Gym has an admission fee and 12 courts. Is it easy to get a game if you just drop in there without being the member of a club and without knowing anyone? Where I live, it is easiest to do this at the gyms that have admission fees. Are there any other gyms in your area with a similar system to Magok?

    I usually go to YangCheon(KyeNam) Gym at weekend afternoon(pm 2~6). but It's very difficult in booking court at that time. so use the morning time(10:00~13:00)
    admission fee: 2,600KWON(weekend), 2,000KWON(workday)
    Closed day: second sunday monthly.
    weekday & saturday: 07:00~22:00
    sunday & holiday: 09:00~18:00

    In Korea you already have so many badminton amateur clubs just in your neighborhood. They play in indoor gyms of schools, YMCA, Village Sports Complex, etc. The easiest way to find one for you is to just ask any Korean you know to search on internet for a club in your region (usually in the level of DONG). You may find out the phone number and/or the location and then contact them directly. Usually they play almost 360 days a year in the evening or in the early morning; with registration fee and monthly fee at very reasonable cost. In the club, you can find A, B, C level players and you can play in a friendly manner. Even though you speak English only they will like to play and talk with you guys.

    Use search keywords on Naver: 배드민턴 동호회

    More useful hints. Thanks, Narnia. I like this club name from among those listed on A-Plus: Land's End Badminton Club. It is here.

    The # looks like your detailed address. I think it's better for u to delete the #.
    BTW, how can I delete my post?

    http://wikimapia.org/#lat=37.5278343...5&z=17&l=0&m=b <-- Considering the scale of the map, browse the map page and guess which are badminton courts.

    http://wikimapia.org/#lat=37.487663&...2&z=12&l=0&m=b

    <-- Incheon airport is to the west from Mok1dong; the one is at the left end and the other right at this map.

    If you're looking for a badminton gym, the nearest may, in fact, be where tanzent plays, mentioned in post 56&57. To see the Gyenam gym on a map see here. It is between Nammyeong and Jangsu Elementary Schools. That's just under 3km from the Mok-1-dong office. Apparently the #700 bus to Bucheon takes you the whole way.

    To find the Gyenam Gym, perhaps you could click on the Google maps link above, print it out, and show it to a taxi driver or PM tanzent, who posted above, since he plays there. Good luck.
