Sinchon, a section of Seoul, is a great place to soak up a more Korean environment. Sinchon is set up like many Korean “play” areas, where bars, clubs, restaurants and singing rooms are structured in a grid-like fashion. The only way to familiarize yourself with the area is to stroll the alleys and discover all the different places. Korean bars tend to be rather antisocial compared with their U.S. counterparts, with people sitting at tables with friends and not tending to mix. There are a number of western style bars in the area, including this one, Nori Ha Nun Saram Dul, a bar known for its great rock music. On this particular night, the Nine Inch Nails tribute band, aptly named the Nine Inch Nail Techs, did a particularly beautiful cover version of one of NIN's more downtempo tunes "La Mer."
