    There are not many things to do in Korea as foreigners. Playing pool can be one of past-time sports for foreigners staying / living in Korea for multiple reasons.

    Billiards was considered as a forgotten sports in Korea for decades, but now it is gaining a huge boom, the age of Billiards revival.

    Many people are playing pool at the KKADANG Billiards Clubs located in Bundang and Gwangju in Kyunggido regardless of their jobs, ages, gender and living areas. You are luckier when you live and/or work in those areas or neighboring areas such as Suwon, Yong-in, Gwangkyo, and Jukjeon. When you can use metro-Seoul subway, you have a good access(approx. 1-hour) to the clubs.

    Billiards is an extremely cost-effective indoor sports because you can enjoy it a whole day at the cost of a cup of coffee.

    The KKADANG Billiards Clubs provide free speedy billiard lesson for beginners so that they can play games after 2-weeks. That's why the club is gaining popularity from the beginners in those areas. It can not be a surprising news in the club that a member beat her husband after 1,2-months training.

    Billiard is one of the easiest sports to begin, but it can be difficult as you climb the ladder like any other sports. However, 2-weeks of learning is enough to enjoy it as a beginner.

    Maybe, Billiards is the most suitable sports for women because it requires smoothness and sophistication which are characters of women. One of Billiards proverb says "Billiards should not be played by power". Billiards' magic is that it hates powerful macho-man because smooth and sophisticate person can play it better.

    There is no possibility to be injured by playing Billiards because it is safe indoor sports. In addition to that, it has huge health-benefits from use of brain and standing and walking 1-2 kms an hour. So, people say there are no fat-person among billiards-mania. Recently, the Channel A TV station aired about benefits of billiards for its dimentia-proof and diet effects.

    Playing billiard is good for increasing awareness which can easily be distracted as you get older. In order to play billiards better, you need to be focused like any other sports like archery, shooting, curling, baseball, soccer, and table-tennis.

    Billiards is gaining popularity among ladies.

    There are special reasons why billiard is women's sports. It has no face sun-burn risk becaues it is indoor sports. It does not require strong power so that women play easily. It is good to prevent dimentia (It is known that women get dimentia easier than men).

    One of the resons why billiard is so attractive is that you can play it promptly without any preparation. It is no surprising that even high-level players do not own their own equipments, so they use the clubs' gears. You just visit billiards club and play it with light-minded after meals, coffee, drinking, and when you have 1-2 hours to spend. Even so, it has health-benefits.

    Billiards can be the best sports for woment because they can socialize with other members with small amount of money. It is good sports for pensioners and women who have light-pockets and enough time.

    If you enrolled as membership at the KKADANG, you would join in its members' SNS immediately. If you are under membership, you either practice alone or play with other members freely 24/7. You will have no time to be left lonely in the society. However, some bad-mannered-mebers are kicked-out-the-club and not admitted for good since the CEO manages the quality of members. The club recommends its members to stay happily with good attitudes.

    The KKADANG Billiards Club has the best environment for the beginners to learn because high-level members have to instruct low-level members as an one of member obligations. So, no lower-level members left without learning, or leave the club without being taught, or leave the club without playing with other members.

    Sometime, members need to act like CEO of the club because the CEO has other job to do.

    Members can experience how to run the business as proxy-CEO.

    One of merits of the club is that it has Pocket-ball table so female members can experience diverse world of the billiards. Most men-oriented clubs do not have Pocket-ball table due to its noisy nature. But, KKADANG has a luxurious low-noise-level pocket-ball table. So, the members can enjoy Carom and Pocket-ball at the same time.

    KKADANG is gaining women's popularity since they can learn billiards A to Z here. KKADANG is enjoying its business boom with more than 200% sales revenue increase recently due to the billiards boom in Bundang and Gwangju areas.

    Female members either come to Bundang or Gwangju based on thier daily chemical. If they want to enjoy city-life, they can come to Bubdang. If they want to drive through country-side, they can drive to Gwanbgu. Maybe, this is one of the reasons what the KKADANG is gaining so much popularity these days.
