In South Korea, this musical phenomenon is called 'Noraebang'. The word 노래 (norae) stands for “song,” while the word 방 (bang) means “room.” These establishments provide private rooms where friends or family can come together to sing along to their favorite songs on a karaoke machine. Translating to "singing room," noraebang has become an integral part of South Korean social life, much like its Filipino counterpart.

Customers have the option to select from a wide-ranging assortment of songs in different languages, including popular K-pop tracks, timeless ballads, and international chart-toppers. Every room usually comes with microphones, tambourines, and other instruments to elevate the singing experience.
