Trip to SEOUL : World Cup

Hi there!
How are you enjoying World Cup??

I'm sure there are some under-sleeping people in your class at school or in your office at work from staying up to watch the games all night. Japan is now in the last 16! I'm very impressed and can't wait for the next game on the 29th!

I had a 3-day trip to Seoul with another J-Hoppers Hiroshima staff, Chika last week and I would like to write about the real World Cup atmosphere there!

Our second day of this trip was the 17th and a World Cup game between South Korea and Argentina was on that night. Everyone was in a red shirt since in the morning and all the thing people were talking about was the match all day.

The whole city had that World Cup feel to it.

I passed the Seoul City Hall Plaza around 3:00 pm first.
Some soccer funs were saving spots for the match already!

And we passed the Plaza again around 8:00 pm.

Fans turned out in HUGE numbers
to watch live TV broadcasts of the match!!!

All the streets around the Plaza were closed
and it was full with red!

I couldn't believe there were no cars on streets
and nobody in town during the game.

Too bad we had only 3 days in Seoul this time and couldn't cheer for their team in the World Cup with local funs. But we both were happy to see a part of the fantastic atmosphere!
We loved it!
