Korean version of the site, where there is information even in English.
Jangchoong Stadium is just outside Exit #5 at Dongguk University Station on Line #3. Admission is free on Tuesday and Wednesday for early round action. Thursday and Friday it's 5000won admission and on the weekend it's 10,000won. You can buy online for 1000/2000won less, if you speak Korean. Apparently the organizers didn't expect any non-Koreans to attend as anything but players. Way to prove them wrong, Adrei!

Just looked up 10,000 Korean won ticket would cost a little over $100 (946/1). Since adrei has Korean friends, it could be cheaper.

hey hey.. wow cool... there's a lot of replies!!!! thanks a lot for the info. anyway, yeah i've been a member of the forum for 3 yrs now but just an "onlooker". thanks for the welcome though... i didn't know that badmincentral could be this active. My korean friends are like.. "no one plays badminton in korea".- I told them they just don't know people who play.. actually there's a lot. and I hope i could play with them when I get there... Ok, will post the pics once i get back to taiwan... however, I might not be able to see all the games coz i dont have a lot of time i only have 6 days to travel Seoul... but will try to see get a lot of pics.. i promise.. thanks again!!!
