The gay club Looking Star started off in quite a unique way. Before they opened, they asked people on social media what they think the role of a gay club is, with the hope that the responses would help them create the ideal spot. Those who answered were offered free lifetime entrance passes. Out of the countless Facebook replies, one of the answers that stood out the most was: “A place that can accommodate gays of all ages and where they can meet and have fun.” Club Pulse is filled with 20 years olds and Club Grey is the hotspot for those a decade older. Another request was to have various genres of music and a large stage so it would be easy to dance and mingle, and Looking Star successfully responded to these requests. Playing ‘90s Korean pop to the most recent top chart music, the easygoing atmosphere sets people at ease—so much so that many go on stage and dance the night away (some are so good, they could easily be mistaken for being sponsored by the club). It’s normal for the club to have lines of people waiting outside and there’s hardly any space to move around inside. According to word of mouth, Looking Star holds a different standard for women looking to enter (both in cover charge and manner) but for gay men, it has won the unofficial title as the hottest place to spend the weekend.
