Mogyoktangs (Hangul목욕탕; Hanja沐浴湯) are Korean public bathhouses with lockers, showers, jacuzzis, steam rooms, massage and barbershops. Unlike the more elaborate jjimjilbangs which include sleeping areas, snack bars, PC bangs, etc. mogyoktangs are usually only bathhouses and not open 24 hours. Most close on Thursdays due to mogyoktang sharing the same first character as the Korean word for Thursday (Hangul목요일). They are also divided into men-only and women-only sections.
