It's right here in Metro Manila!

A K-drama is not a K-drama without a typical scene, aka scenarios that are almost always present to the point that we can already predict what will happen next. This includes the mandatory wrist grab, a Subway placement, the chabeol's son, the female lead who owns the latest mobile phone unit despite being poor—we can go on and on with these familiar storylines! And before we forget, there's also a jjimjilbang scene where the characters get to recharge after a long day (or week).

What is a jjimjilbang?

Koreans have a fast-moving lifestyle called the ppali-ppali culture and their form of relaxation is visiting jjimjilbangs or Korean traditional bathhouses. Here, they get to soak in a hot tub, have a steaming session in a sauna, relieve body aches through massages, and enjoy Korean food. Aside from its invigorating appeal, jjimjilbangs are actually good for you and are proven to improve blood circulation, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, and so much more! Some of the K-dramas that feature jjimjilbangs include My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho, Legend Of The Blue Sea, Crash Landing On You, and True Beauty.

We've also seen Korean traditional bathhouses in BTS' and BLACKPINK's variety shows:

While we wait for the travel restrictions to ease so we can visit a jjimjilbang in South Korea, there's actually an authentic one located in Makati! Take your idea of self-pampering to the next level at the New Lasema Spa And Jjimjilbang, the first family-oriented Korean spa in the Philippines.
