If you have questions, contact David on Kakao. ID: Rufio1

Join 60 other positive, like-minded people for a coffee or a beer this or any other Wednesday. Feel free to join our Korean language class from 6:30 – 7:30pm or come a bit later to our Language exchange from 7:30 – 10:30pm.


You will make new friends, get some Korean or English speaking practice and energize your week. After work, rather than go home and veg out (possibly covered in cheet-o dust while binge watching netflix), step up and check out this meet up. There are so many good people and there is so much energy that it’s contagious. Also, we’ve got people from many different countries who join our meet up so this keeps things fun and interesting. 

WHAT TO EXPECT*********************************************************

1. You’ll enter at 7:30 and there will be someone to greet you. You’ll pay 만원 and you’ll get a drink (From the cafe or pub menu) + a 2nd drink ticket.

2. You’ll have a seat and talk with new and interesting people.

3. Every 50 minutes do a lottery prize draw (Chocolate, and beer prizes) and then we’ll have everyone change tables so you can meet new people 🙂

4. You’ll use your drink ticket to get another beer. Then at 10:30 you’ll want to stay but the language exchange is over and you have to go home 🙁 See you next time! 🙂

LET’S TALK NUMBERS!*******************************************************

Why should I pay you 만원? 

• That’s a good question. Well the alcohol original price at the cafe is 6천원 per bottle. But, when you pay 만원 you can get 2 bottles. So that’s a bargain right there. But beyond the liquid courage, you can get a 3 hour language exchange where you have the opportunity to make new friends and strong connections with new people. We all know relationships are the most important thing in life. So really, you should be paying us…

How many people attend?

•  About 60 people join each week. That’s + or – 10. So depending on the week we may get 50 people or 70. DON’T pay attention to the RSVP counter. We have many channels that we advertise on. 

What about international people?

• There are about 10 – 20 international people that join each Wednesday! Trust us, that’s a lot for a meet up in Seoul 🙂

HOW DO I GET THERE? ***************************************************

Check out the map below. You can enter this address in to your phone and you’ll find the exact location: 마포구 동교동 204-54, Seoul. Still not enough for you as 길치? Allow me to explain:

• Take Hongdae Station exit 2 and turn left immediately (past Starbucks). Cross the road. Turn left walk straight. Turn right at the first road. Walk straight for about 2 minutes. ARGO is on your right in the big grey building  on your right.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS *********************************************

1. Sign me up, where do I register?

Actually, there’s no place to register. Just show up at either 7:30 for the language exchange, or 6:30 for the Korean lesson.

2. How do I pay?

Just pay directly to the cafe owner. You can use debit or cash, though cash is better.

3. Can I come late?

Of course. Come at any time you like. Though, keep in mind that the language exchange ends at 10:30pm.

4. Can I bring friends?

Absolutely. This is definitely encouraged. Bring all the friends you like 😀
