Gaho invites you to GD's $920,000 hotel in the countryside

GD's parents bought land in the countryside a few years ago with a view to building a vacation home for themselves and GD. They decided to build a pension (a small boutique hotel) instead.
The construction was financed entirely by GD as a gift to his parents. The hotel has 11 rooms, all named after Big Bang's songs including one room called Crayon, reserved for the exclusive use of GD himself.  The rooms were all decorated by GD and his mother. Currently Kwon Younghwan (GD's father) and Gaho are living at the hotel and running it with the help of manager Huh Eunmae.





The bedrooms and public rooms feature portraits of Big Bang and GD, BB figurines and dolls, etc... The pension has a plunge pool and luxurious bathrooms with hydrobaths. Two of the rooms are split-level suites, one featuring a private roof terrace with an outdoor jacuzzi.
GD and YB have already stayed at the pension and 2NE1 are supposed to visit soon too. The pension is already taking bookings and enquiries from all over the world.

However there is a catch: you must be at least 19 years old to stay there, presumably to avoid issues with young teenage fans.

OP: what does Omona think about the decor? I like it except some of the chairs look cheap and flimsy.

(mods, I double-checked and this is not a repost)

it actually looks nice, when i read that gd helped to decorate it i was afraid of the mess it would be.

I read about this on allkpop and they didn't mention anything about it being a hotel or whatever so I thought it was a vacation home for the fam. But hey I wanna stay at the place. Looks nice.

Same, I'm just getting that now(i've never seen the word pension used like this before too lol).

So what is that $920,000 price quoting because if that's how much it cost to make then woow that pretty cheap. You could probably just about buy a 1 bed room flat in London with that money.

It looks really nice and the scenery is especially beatiful, but it looks like it's in the middle of nowhere.

Oh neat! I'm bookmarking the site. Would love to visit, the scenery looks fantastic. Would be nice if there were hiking trails there too.

I don't like the art work for the room on the right but overall it looks nice

Decor is kinda ugly, like someone watched too much MTV cribs but the location makes up for it.

You can find rates for rooms from their homepage: http://www.thenemo.kr/

decor works together well enough, considering they didn't hire a professional decorator to do it. but I guess that's the attraction, that GD helped design it?

Wow just checked the hotel's homepage and it's such a beautiful location and those tubs looked pretty nice too. If I lived in Korea, I would definitely like to visit even if I wasn't a Big Bang fan.

it's cute, a bit boring design-wise but nothing too unconventional to ensure a steady income of customer$. which i understand, because gd made this to help his parents keep working and finance their living.

all of my uncles have been forced into retirement by their companies at younger and younger ages it's kinda crazy. like the youngest has been at 50

i think GD is pretty smart with managing his money with his parents. not sure which TV show it was, but i remember him mentioning that when he first started getting the big paycheques he had bought commercial properties for his parents to collect rental incomes.

though i think it would be much better in the long run for their new B&B to not actually use Big Bang as a marketing ploy to lure in guests and instead run it like a proper vacation home business.

Looks really cheap :( Like Ikea.

I think the exterior building design and outside scenery are really interesting and cool but I'm not entirely sure about the inside -- it does look kinda cheap, but it's also kinda unique and it's definitely not UGLY. I hope it'll be successful nonetheless!
