[Roommate/룸메이트] The Gym Where Son Gayeon Trains


Road FC Seo Duwon Gym
822 Seolleung-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
(서울 강남구 선릉로 822)

One of my favorite Korean people at the moment is Son Gayeon, the 20-year-old MMA female fighter who is a member of the Korean variety show Roommate. Because she's a fighter, she has this masculine appeal but if you're going to follow her in the program, you'll see that she has this very cute and feminine side on her.

On Episode 5 of the show, Minwoo accompanied her to the gym where she trains. Her joy was very obvious and it made the man happy to see his friend in such state. I, myself, enjoyed watching Gayeon take on the ring, to be honest. She's focused, awesome, dedicated - even for a young woman that she is! Nowadays, it's really very rare to see young women like that, right?

Now, the location. The ROADFC Seo Duwon Gym is actually located in Gangnam so it's easy to locate. It's just a few blocks away from Apgujeong Rodeo Station Exit 4 so if you're going to Korea and you're planning to visit the place, try your luck and do so! I, myself, would want to go there because I want to see Gayeon for real!!!

I researched about the gym in Naver and learned that Seo Duwon is that trainer who teased Gayeon about her weight during the episode. If I'm not mistaken, he owns the gym, hence his name there. For more pictures of the place, you can visit this blog.

If the area looks familiar, it's because I've ID-ed the area before. Beside the gym is Once in a Blue Moon, the jazz cafe where Cunning Single Lady filmed a scene. Yes, it was Seo Kangjun in there. :p

Oh! Remember when Chanyeol was cooking and Gayeon and Minwoo were with him in the kitchen? He told the girl that his friends like her. And I'm telling you, I have this huge instinct that he was referring to the other EXO members. Screw their ideal types: quiet, timid girls (OH YES LUHAN, I'M REFERRING TO YOURS). Their personalities look like they'll go for girls who are strong enough like Gayeon. Maybe, except Kyungsoo though. :p

Thank you Manager-hyung for all your hard work!! I was wondering if you would be able to locate the gym Sistar's Soyou went to on 'I Live Alone'? I want to find a gym that does weight training but not one that is as 'intense'/crossfit/mma-focused as Gayeon's :)
