I’m sure that if you’re a fan of Korean dramas, you’re familiar with 노래방 “norae-bang” or “singing room”. Have you heard of DVD 방 (bang) or DVD room? If you’ve seen “My Name is Kim Sam Soon”, you might remember the scene where Sam Soon and “Sam Shik” went to see a movie privately. It’s almost similar to a noraebang in a way. You pay for a small room equipped with a large television screen and a sofa. There’s a selection of DVD movies at the reception area, where the DVD players are also located.
My husband and I went to a DVD bang before (about two years ago?) just for experience. We paid 7,000 won (about US$7) when we went to see “Spiderman 2”. There was a big projector and a comfortable leather sofa bed. The room was small and there was a glass-covered window on the door (which was nice). Unfortunately, they didn’t have home theater popcorn machines. That would’ve completed the “theatre” experience.
