철학관 – Fortune Teller

I don’t think fortune teller is an ideal translation for 철학관, but I cannot think of a better one. Here and there, in Seoul and in the countryside, you’ll see 철학관. I have noticed there are more 철학관 in older neighborhoods. In the past and perhaps even today,many Koreans might go to a 철학관 to seek advice regarding present-day important decisions and the future. One frequent instance where people go to a 철학관 is to seek suggestions about what their baby should be named.
