Happy Seollal!

Happy Lunar New Year everyone!

Today is the first day of the Year of the Dragon in the Lunar calendar. Lunar New Year is a bigger deal in Korea than our ‘regular’ new year, but it’s not celebrated very loudly. In fact, the holiday mostly consists of seeing relatives that live far away and eating certain kinds of traditional food, so there wasn’t that much going on in Seoul.
Actually, Seoul was creepily empty the past few days. Because no one actually lives in Seoul (everyone just like works/studies/shops there) all the people who are usually here are now visiting their family in different parts of the country. It was so weird to see the otherwise so busy subways and 6 lane streets almost completely bare.

There was some stuff going on to entertain the foreigners and the few people left behind though, and we played a traditional new years game called Yut Nori at the guesthouse.

It feels like only yesterday when we all arrived in #Korea 3 years ago on the first day of our #KGSP #scholarship, but now it has already become time to say goodbye to many of you. Congratulations on your #graduation, and all the best in the rest of your lives ㅜ.ㅜ If I don't post anything for a long time...
Please call the police.

There were lots of great cosplayers, but these guys put so much thought and work in their #costume that they felt like the real deal.

The #SIF is still on until this sunday at Hall D of #COEX in #Gangnam, #Seoul, so don't hesitate to stop by and see the work of some of #Korea's most amazing artists.
