Dark Side of Seoul – Introduction

Take a tour down the dark alleys of the forgotten 600-year history of bloody massacres, seedy hideaways, and mourning ghosts with the Dark Side of Seoul Trip Advisor awarded ghost tour!
This is the side of Seoul that you won’t find in the tourism brochures. Take a tour down the dark alleys of the forgotten 600-year history of bloody massacres, seedy hideaways, and mourning ghosts. Stops on this tour include the following:
  • The site of a gruesome massacre
  • The bridge whose stones tell a dark story that lovers and passersby know nothing about
  • A neighborhood known to be occupied by the spirits of prostitutes who met grisly ends
Along the way you can soak-up tales of Seoul’s famous ghosts and murderers, weird and surprising landmarks, and the ancient city’s scandalous secrets. Clairvoyants on the tour have reported that we also have a few vaporous guests who join us. Keep an eye out for them. This is not a food tour. There will be an opportunity to buy refreshments. Children under 18 should not take this tour. It involves violent stories, sex jokes, and foul-mouthed tour guides.
