When we think of spas, we usually think of dimly lit rooms with soothing ambient music, indulgent body treatments and massages to invigorate and revive, and a couple of relaxing hours sheltered from the rest of the world.
After watching this video by Buzzfeed, however, we think we’re editing that statement to exclude Korean spas. These people learned the harsh reality the hard way, after succumbing to a full-body scrub that had them shedding dead skin in parts they never even knew existed. We’re equal parts intimidated and fascinated, and might just give this a try the next time we’re in Seoul.
