Roller City - Eum Lobatayakki – Cartoon Shop V - Hirai Chinese Glass, Seolleung branch
In episode 295 of I Live Alone, Sung Hoon went to a roller skating rink to relieve stress. In spite of being athletic enough to participate in the Ironman triathlon, his less-than-satisfactory roller skating skills provided viewers with plenty of laughs. Roller City that Sung Hoon visited in Banpo includes a separate beginner track in addition to the main track, allowing anyone to safely enjoy skating. The general entrance fee is KRW 3,000 with an additional fee for 2 hours of track use (weekdays: KRW 12,000 for children and KRW 15,000 for adults / weekends: KRW 15,000 for children and KRW 17,000 for adults). There is no age restriction, but rental skate sizes start from 180 mm (UK size 10.5; US size 12.5).

In episode 248 of I Live Alone, the sight of Sung Hoon finishing off several different dishes at a Chinese restaurant and his gym trainer squabbling trying to stop him gave a good laugh to those watching. The place that so stimulated Sung Hoon's appetite was the Seolleung location of Hirai Chinese Glass. Standing inside, your gaze is caught by the elaborate Chinese interior that looks like you’ve actually come to China. Although the main hall is tidy as well, there is a banquet hall that is also good for enjoying a peaceful meal. The lunch special offered between 11:30 AM and 2:00 PM at a reasonable price is not to be missed, offering crab chowder, sweet and sour tangsuyuk, chili shrimp, jajang noodles and more, even including dessert.
