Places for hobbies and nice pastimes in Seoul

Alone or together, you might discover your hidden talents or simply, your favorite pastime activity.


From indoor fishing to art and cooking — nothing extravagant, but they're sure to offer some lighthearted fun.

Father Carp Indoor Fishing Café

5 out of 5 stars
Things to do Jongno-gu

Would there be any other place in the city that's full of such happy looking adults? This “indoor fishing café” located in Daehangno is what you can imagine plus so much more liveliness and lighthearted fun. With the helpful and energetic staff, fishing becomes real entrainment here. At just 10,000 won, you get an hour of fishing, free snacks, coffee and soft drinks. Mind you, though—you might assume that you're not into fishing, but once you're here, several hours pass by pretty quickly. Opening daily until 2am, Father Carp Indoor Fishing Café qualifies as a nice (though unusual) night hangout spot in the city. Waiting for my lucky catch, even a can of Hite (3,000 won) somehow tastes better than I remember.

ABC Cooking Studio

5 out of 5 stars
Things to do Songpa-gu
What sets out ABC Cooking Studio from the rest of institutions of the kind is the freedom of choice in the curricula. It allows you to choose any date, time slot and menu among the 3 different courses (cooking, bread and desserts) which it offers at all times. The cooking course includes the Japanese home cooking menu, dinner party menu and "world menu (Asian, European, etc.)." Instead of demonstrations or lectures, every class taught here is practice based. If you're willing to learn yet can't decide if you should start the course, you should take the trial class deal. For the first timers, it's only 20,000 won (for 2 hours), and you still get choices for the menu. In December, it includes: Bolognes style tagliatelle, berry shortcake and fondue bread.
