Blizzard WWI ‘07: PC Bangs

Pcbang03

While we were walking around the city, we visited a "PC bang," or a South Korean internet cafe. There are over 20,000 PC bangs in South Korea; compare that with around 12,000 Starbucks or 31,000 McDonald's worldwide. PC bangs provide a place for young Koreans to socialize and play online games on computers with high speed internet connection. It costs 1,000 Won ($1) per hour and players can just check out the games they want to play. Although there were only a few people there during the daytime, PC bangs get really packed in the evenings.
