Jamsil Students' Gymnasium (Hangul: 잠실학생체육관; hanja: 蠶室學生體育館) is an indoor sporting arena located in Seoul, South Korea. The capacity of the arena is 7,500 and was built from November 1972 to December 1976 to host Boxing events at the 1988 Summer Olympics, and wheelchair basketball events at the 1988 Summer Paralympics.

Events[edit]

PWF Korea Life Attack Pro wrestling event will be held on April 27, 2014 at this venue. A historical moment in Korean culture history as a lost sport has regained its popularity in this country. Aside from the Olympics, it also hosted boxing events at the 1986 Asian Games, and is the home stadium for the Seoul SK Knights of the Korean Basketball League.

On 15 March 2012, general cable broadcaster JTBC held a public shoot and press conference at the Gymnasium, to showcase their new programme Shinhwa Broadcast, hosted by six-member boyband Shinhwa.[1]
