Traditional Korean Study Rooms Fulfill A New Mission In America
Via NBC News
This is where East meets West. New York City’s only Korean study room has become a hub where Asian and American cultures collide by providing the one thing everyone needs: a quiet corner to call their own, if even just for a few hours a day. A dual nature sums up the NY Dokseosil, or Study Room, nestled on the fifth floor of a building in Manhattan’s Koreatown. Sisters Youngjin Lee and Obi Lee opened the cafe in 2012 after emigrating from Korea within the last decade. Obi estimates that the cafe’s clientele of about 10 to 15 regulars, plus walk-ins, is made up of about 70 percent Koreans and Japanese and 30 percent Americans. Americans who studied abroad, worked or maintain an interest in Korean culture — sometimes fueled by Korean television drama — flock there to meet with natives who know the country best. For Asians, it’s a haven to get acclimated and pursue personal and professional goals.

Ktown NYC Nightclub
Space Billiards is a pool hall of the sort that feels nocturnal on even a bright day. But it is not a dour place, and it isn’t filled with unsavory hustlers. In its slightly manic, neon-noir way, it exudes a quirky sense of cheer. Simple strobe lights jitter across walls. A seemingly endless string of dance hits plays. The wall behind the red couch is covered with small mirrors. At some tables you’ll find cheap American beer; at other tables, bottles of OB Lager and soju, the beer and liquor of South Korea.
