I was curious of the difference between a 목욕탕 and 찜질방 so I looked it up and this what I found. It appears that a 찜질방 used to be just a dry sauna. However nowadays they pretty much all also have baths in them so it has became a word that means both.

It got me confused so checked it on naver: 목욕탕 - (가정의)a bathroom, (공중의)a bathhouse, a public bath; 욕조 - (Am) bathtub, (Brit) bath; but then it also says: bathtub: 목욕통, 욕조; --;;
