A good gym in Seoul is called Daewang Taekwondo Academy located in Gangnam. A bit outside of Gangnam but near an American military base and also lots of buses going there. The master there is still young (in his thirties) and 6th dan. He speaks English fluently and has taught in the US and South Africa. Classes for adults are everyday weekdays from 8:30 and for children earlier. The classes are very varied, so I can only personally recommend this place.

Right before Christmas Eve finshed, snow fall started after a fairly long time since the beginning of this winter season. Felt so magical~ For those who find it hard to decide of what to do during this winter season, I suggest going for Skiing.. You can read my review on my blog here : https://akramaljadi.wordpress.com/2015/12/24/skiing-adventure/ There are a lot more activities to do during winter than you think.. come out there and start doing something :D
Does anyone know where I can find a good English speaking physical therapist in Seoul? It does not matter if the therapist is associated with a center or hospital. For example, our last therapist was U.S. certified PT, but pursuing other interests and saw only a few clients in their homes for the PT sessions. Also, welcome recommendations for specific hospitals and therapists/doctors who are good with children (and can speak English). Thanks!
I've overcomed my fear of going to a jimjilbang and finally went last weekend. It was a different kind of experience but it was very relaxing. I recommend going with a Korea friend if you're a first-timer cause it would be a little hard to figure out what to do, especially if you can't speak Korean.
