A place to pamper yourself ― with plenty of DramaIf you’ve ever wanted to pretend you’re a star, like on one of those nighttime soap operas, check into a Drama House to live out your fantasy. The Drama House is the big benefit of a frequent-caller plan available to women using KTF mobile phones, which have 016 or 018 prefixes.
After amassing 500 points (every 100 won spent on your KTF bill earns you one point) you can enter any Drama House branch. Drama Houses are also located in Daejeon and Gangnam, southern Seoul.
The Myeong-dong branch has five floors dedicated to pampering female KTF customers.
Three uniformed receptionists greet you on the first floor, which is geared for teens and equipped with state-of-the-art computers for chatting and gaming.
The second floor has, appropriately, rows of mobile-phone battery chargers and a cafeteria where members can sip coffee or tea. The second-floor powder room is staffed by stylists to help with hair and makeup, a popular service with wedding parties.
Floor three has two DVD rooms and the Book Cafe, which regularly updates its reading materials.
The fourth floor has Photobox and Musicbox services. Photobox allows members to shoot and retouch pictures. Musicbox is a small recording studio to cut your own mini-album ― a perfect gift for a boyfriend’s birthday.
The fifth floor is Kids Club, where busy mothers can leave their children (3 years and above) for up to two hours with professional child-care providers while they relax on one of the lower floors.
SK Telecom subscribers, regardless of gender, can access the company’s TTL Zones, which provide similar services. LG Telecom has Khai Zone, which is comparable to Drama House and TTL Zone.
