    @blabl Thank you for the lovely reply. By any chance, do you know any club or gangs I can join that playing near my area? I'd searched Meetup but the places are too far.

    I think you can just walk in to any badminton clubs nearby your area and then ask them for more information about the time and people you can play with. It will be easier this way.

    Have you tried to find the Gwangjang-dong Indoor Badminton Gym that blabl linked to earlier? It appears to be 3.4km from your uni. The link there includes a kakao map of the area. If you need a Google maps version, this one should show you the route from Sejong U. Also, since you are sort of on the northwestern edge of Gwangjin-gu, some of the gyms I linked to above (post #9) in Dongdaemun-gu might be closer. There is also a link here to 14 clubs in Gwangjin-gu. The closest to you seems to be 2.5km away at the Junggok Culture Centre. I included a Google Maps link to it. It is #13 on the Gwangjin-gu list and apparently the Prime Club plays there in the evenings from 7 to 10 on 6 courts. Let us know if you are successful.

    Of course you can. Sure no problem. You can just hope into any of the badminton clubs in Seoul that is near the place you are staying in Seoul and then you can play badminton with just anyone or any players in the club. No problem. :)

    This website should be able to help you move about to play in Seoul.

    4 days is a short visit so you can't do much trial and error. It's best to give us an idea of what part of Seoul you'll be in. There are a few indoor gyms at the seoulstop link blabl posted but they could easily be an hour away from you by subway. We can, however, give better advice if you can tell us a neighbourhood, subway stop, etc.
