Hongje
Basketball

Underneath Naebu Expressway lies the ‘Rucker Park’ of Korea. A truly urban basketball court. Surrounded by a green fence, dimly lit, the Hongje Basketball Courts seem like they’ve been taken right out of NBA Jam or Hangtime.


The Scouting Report

One word: Ball! That's all you need to know.

BALL!

Surface

Similar to Myeongji University’s courts. It is a soft top. Kind of like the artificial turf they use for football fields. Its not too bad on the knees and the grip is adequate.
