Asian countries like South Korea are often presumed to be Buddhist or anything else, but Christian, however nowadays Christianity is not only wide-spread across the country, but it's become a prevalent religion in Korea. Can you imagine that an average Sunday service in a Korean church may gather tens and hundreds of thousands of attendees? These numerous parishes have become known as Korean Megachurch. Regardless of your religious convictions, attending one is a worthwhile cultural experience on your visit to the country.

Yoido Full Gospel Church is renowned as the largest church in the world with 800,000 parishioners. Not surprising, it is recorded in Guinness Book of World Records. According to statistic data, one out of every ten residents of Seoul identifies themselves as a member of Megachurch.

If you decide to attend a Sunday service, mind that the best views open from the main sanctuary part, but to take a seat there you should come half an hour before the beginning.
