Vices we love: Iatewon

Sunday, May 22, 2005


There is a section of Seoul near downtown called Iatewon, or in charming Korean-speak "the foreigners district." Went there last night and after strolling around, stumbled into a bar called Gecko's. (Greed is good.) Now, I never go to Iatewon because it's more American than America ever was. The white guys look like they just came from the frat house and the black guys keep a spare do rag in their exposed band of their boxers, just in case. Ugh. It kind of reminded me of the so-called "Hungarian village" on an isolated lot in eastern PA where bare-chested old men ate blood sausages on a stick- it was almost like a parody. The frat guys were shouting slurred obscenities at past-their-prime skanks who had a bit too much tan in the bottle. I should keep my mouth shut tho- at this rate, in another five months the Iatewon girls will start looking like beauty queens.

(Hate to say it since I'm supposed to be the standard-issue white male EFL teaching sex tourist in Asia but the Korean girls just don't do it for me. For shame! Can't I at least live up to my stereotype?)

Same here mate. Korean girls are bloody awful looking creatures.

Oh I don't know. I reckon that in a few months time they will start looking like beauty queens. The question I must is why these nice ladies won't come to Seoul to pursue a profession as rewarding as ours?

"the question I must ask". Damn I'm hungover.
