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.

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

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

i'm definitely will be lost walking over there. My friend going to have exams while i'm there so i will be alone most of the time walking around. Anybody care to show me around when i'm there in the summer?

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.
