Soongsil Middle and High Schools in western Seoul share a campus which allows them to have some pretty decent athletic facilities. The soccer field is excellent. They basketball court is typical. The futsal field is out-of-nowhere great. Seriously, how many middle and high schools that you know of have a futsal field? These students are lucky!
If you live anywhere close to Line 6 in western Seoul, the futsal field at Soongsil Middle and High Schools is as good a place as any near you at which to play futsal. If you do not live in western Seoul--for example, if you live in Busan--you would be considered a fool for traveling all the way to Soongsil Middle and High Schools just to play futsal.
Artificial turf. At the time of this writing, there was a small patch of turf missing in the middle of the field. It shouldn't affect the game too much. Other than that, it is a decent field.
Bring your futsal uniform. Bathrooms and changing rooms are located underneath the nearby soccer stands. Dress for success!
