What you'll do

You will be touring Seoul’s Gay District located in Itaewon area, also known as Homo Hill, with Hurricane Kimchi, a local drag artist and LGBTQ rights activist, who is also the founder and chief organiser of Seoul Drag Parade. First, you will be greeted by drag queen Hurricane Kimchi, have a very brief tour of Itaewon area, and then head to Homo Hill, which is the gay district located in the neighbourhood, with Hurricane Kimchi as your guide. Once you get to the gay district called Homo Hill, you will get to visit two of the bars in the gay district, selected by Hurricane Kimchi, based on tour participants’ preference and condition. She will be explaining to you about the background and history of the gay district and Seoul's drag scene, Seoul’s LGBTQ situations, and giving you information on venues and shows to check out, while you are enjoying drinks of your choice. (Drinks must be purchased separately.) At the end of the tour, Hurricane Kimchi will be taking each of the tour participant to their next destination in the area – it may be a lounge bar, a club, a drag show, depending on what they’re up for.

Where you'll be

Itaewon area is located in central Seoul. There has been an American army base right next to it, which helped make the area relatively more liberal and westernised, compared to other areas in Seoul. The gay district in that neighbourhood is also known as Homo hill. While most of the gay places are located in the hill, some venues are located somewhere outside of it, still being in and near Itaewon area.
