If you’ve spent some time dancing in Busan’s hottest clubs or perhaps spent a night on Haeundae beach, you probably know Min Jae-Ha. He is a jet-setting entrepreneur/ bartender/DJ/hotel and club manager/innovator who has transformed the scene here for twenty years running. Even with his success from various popular projects around his beloved Busan, his humility and dedication to exemplary service is what has garnered him quite a following.
Though Mr. Min won’t extol his accomplishments, one should. For starters, opening Club Elune in the basement of the Paradise Hotel in 2009, Busan’s first world-class electronic dance club bringing DJs from around the globe to spin created more than just parties but star-studded events. In addition to Club Elune’s fame, he works in collaboration with the most popular clubs such as Grid and Fix to keep the dance floor jumping.
Besides importing influences from his travels in Greece, Dubai, Macau, Hong Kong, Japan, and Las Vegas to the increasingly-cosmopolitan Busan, Mr. Min also manages the MS Hotel featuring 43 well-appointed rooms all with sea views looking out over Haeundae Beach.
Now Mr. Min is presenting a new, one-of-a-kind alternative destination: J Sports Pub in Haeundae. Besides offering a full bar featuring deftly crafted cocktails and tasty comfort food, J Sports Pub will feature a wide variety of activities including basketball, bowling, darts, pocketball, skeeball, and state-of-the-art shooting games.
He describes his upcoming venture as “a fun healthy venue and with a mixed crowd in a relaxing, friendly vibe with professional service.”
While Min has spent his life working hard, first to support his family in Seoul and then to accomplish what most entrepreneurs only dream of, you’ll never hear him complain about the long hours.
“I never had a ‘bad job’. I just love to work. I’ve enjoyed all my work,” says Mr. Min. “I think that dedication to work and the effort to help customers have fun and feel good in a comfortable atmosphere is most important for me.”
And what about the sizable success his endeavors have enjoyed?
“I think that these are no major feats or accomplishments because I just enjoy everything that I do.”
With Mr. Min, a gregarious, creative civic trendsetter with J Sports Pub opening this December 12th at Sfunz Square in Haeundae, one should expect more than just a scene to be seen but an activity-filled time by the sea.
