“An insight into Korean passion”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Watching baseball is a must in Korea. Jamsil Stadium, home of Nexen Heroes, is the most convenient location for travelers visiting Seoul. Baseball is HUGE in Korea and everyone goes to cheer their favorite team. Actually, even if you do not know a thing about baseball, it will still be an entertaining experience watching flash-mob like cheers, chewing on fried chicken and burgers, and waving your stick balloons at all times. Like everyone mentioned, baseball tickets are cheap at around 10,000 won. Considering that it is a 3~4 hour entertainment, this is an amazing value.

“EXCELLENT FUN AT LITTLE COST”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

What a great experience to watch Baseball at this stadium. The tickets are cheap (About $8) and once you get inside there is no issues with exorbitant drinks and food prices. Even beer was priced little over the local mart prices and the food vendors had special sets of meals available.
The vibe is excellent and I must say that Koreans really know how to cheer on their teams and players!
Avoid the bleachers and sit in the main grandstand for a better atmosphere. Anywhere will give you a good view. Very easily accessible from the subway and the facilities are well maintained and clean.

“A great experience”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Cheap seats, cheap food, cheap beer - good times. Buy inside or bring it in. The fun started on arrival with tons of vendors outside selling food and beer which they put in a disposable cooler bag with some ice for us. Bought tickets on arrival, very helpful attendant at the ticket counter. We got seats high behind home plate for 10 000 won each , next time I would pick seats down first or third base line as this is where the two teams fans gathered and had cheerleaders out leading songs and dances. The game itself doesn't have the big hits or homers that you get in a north American game but the atmosphere was great and i'd definitely go again. Easy to do with young kids, friends.

“Korean Baseball”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

A must see for baseball fans. US Baseball teams need to take a look at how to run an operation that does not kill the fans. The average ticket price is around 10,000 Won with prices with bleacher prices down to 7,000 Won.

Food - whatever you want, you can purchase outside and bring it into the stadium or purchase it at many of the normal proces stands in the stadium, to include beer. Baseball is baseball and goes better with beer and popcorn.

As for the game, I appreciate Korean baseball over the US game. Players enjoy and play the game for the game. The game moves fast with players making contact with the ball and getting on base. There are still plenty of home runs, but teams take the chance to steal and hit and run more often.

Seould baseball is nearly nightly. A must see while visiting Seoul.

“One of my favorite experiences while in Korea”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

I visit the Republic of Korea every summer to teach in a program for college students from around the world, including local Koreans. One of the activities that is a must for me to participate in each year is attending a baseball game at Jamsil Stadium. Regardless of the fact that I never know who any of the players are, the real action is in the crowd and the energy generated by the cheerleaders, particularly the male cheerleader who leads crowd chants. Every player has a song and the crowd never seems to stop making noise, whether it's singing, clapping noisemakers, or cheering for a hit. Another must at Korean baseball games is fried chicken and beer. To get the complete experience, stay away from the KFC version.
