Kid flying around with their Taekwondo, street hiphop improvisations, bands playing on stage, DJs throwing mass street parties, and motivation-speakers keeping young crowds tuned. At the Dongdaemun gu, near Hankuk University, I got a really pleasant surprise of running into all that and much more while heading for something completely different. Walking around that main street around the Hankuk University metro station, I was overwhelmed at how well done everything there was.

Not sure entirely what that festival was but it’s the sort of thing that’s great to randomly run into when you’re touring a city. That whole area was young, vibrant, energetic, sexy and full of life.

 

Wish I had more of those type of surprises in life. A real treat.
