Mogyoktang or hot bath tub

First word in this blog is mogyoktang ( 목욕탕 ).
In teochew, "tang" means a huge tub to contain water. Chui tang, is a water tub.

So it was surprising when I learnt that one very big korean culture - mogyoktang - hot bath sauna has such a fine connection to teochew language.
