Update on Hyu-Lim Won JJimjilbang – Dasa, Daegu

Posted in Bathhouse by 노강호 on May 21, 2012

Two years ago, when I first reviewed Hyu-Lim Won Bathhouse, I was quite impressed. However, on a visit this weekend I was suddenly struck by how small it is. Certainly, by bathhouse standards it is large, but I guess, after more experience and some visits to very large establishments, it has shrunk a little. However, it is still worth a visit.

Despite the shrinking of Hyu-Lim Won, I was amazed how the area immediately around the complex had developed. I was last in this area a little over a year ago and there was a clear view from the front of the building to the main road opposite. Suddenly, there are now six high-rise buildings, all on the verge of completion, blocking the view. Indeed, Dasa is now almost a mini city and the farms that once lined the main road between the edge of Dasa and the back of Keimyung University, have since been replaced with high-rise housing.

The large development that has sprung up in front of Hyu-Lim Won, since my last visit a year ago

The speed of development is quite impressive

    I’ve been there and like it. I have a strange question, why are most Koreans circujmcised? I’m American and am. I notice in the sauna most kids aren’t but the older they are they are circumcised. Just a curious question.

    Please reply,
