|Julio||Damn, -RoG-, you always manage to get the best trips around. Being a taekwondo practitioner myself, I'm looking forward to the day I can visit it's birthplace too. Nice pics!|

|earinthewall||That TV show is called Play School. You only have to be channel surfing and hear a few seconds of those songs and your caught trying to get the tunes out of your head. Especially when you grew up with it anyway. Also a lot of celebrities sign up for it including Jay Laga'aia who played Captain Typho in Attack of the Clones.|

Awesome pictorial! I spent some time in Hong Kong when I was younger, and your shots of Seoul really remind me of those days. Did you find out what happens inside FUCKFAKE? Some sort of sex simulator?!? Enquiring minds want to know...
But I think I have an answer to the Chucky question - that looks like a mount for a security camera (becoming more and more popular these days, and I think I saw a few others in your shots of Seoul), so I'd guess that Chucky Halloween mask is there for one of two reasons: Either they want to hide the camera (or make it look cooler) OR they wanted to cover up the camera - "The man isn't monitoring our bar! Go bonkers!"
Now, I'm clicking over to check out Lotte World!

There weren't enough pictures of Dr. Boogie. Did he hold the camera the entire time?
For reals tons of great pictures though. Love the architecture.

I wonder how many of those awesome light displays are up year-round. Some of them are clearly holiday-themed, but others would work any old time.
Asian countries' obsession with cutesy poo is one of those things that I simultaneously do and do not want to know the story behind.

He said he loved the food but he said Seoul stunk. What is your opinion on the stinkiness of soul?
I think what your cousin was referring to was the kimchee that they cook over there. For those who don't know kimchee is kind of a spicy vegitable that they use with a lot of dishes when it's raw it has a hint of spice to the smell, however when it is cooked it smells terrible. My first night in Seoul when I stepped out of my hotel onto the streets I got a good wiff of what smelt like someone literally taking a shit accross the street. Turns out my friend told me it was the kimchee being cooked at the resteraunt nearby. I never wanted to try kimchee and I dont know mabey I'm being a bit harsh on the smell but it sure was harsh on my sense of smell. No way I was prepared for that.

|replicant||I have always wanted to go to S. Korea. My cousin was living there with his wife (as she was in the military). He said he loved the food but he said Seoul stunk. What is your opinion on the stinkiness of soul? BTW, skin food makes lovely facial scrubs. :D|

Great memories. Spent a lot of time in Korea and I miss those crazy days.
Also, Milkus is the greatest drink known to man.

Fantastic pics, thanks for sharing!
I take exception to the comments about the superior christmas lights though. Nobody does it like we do here in the good old "U" "S" of "A" Yeah those are some impressive lights... put together buy large companies and such.
There was a guy (who sadly passed away a few years ago) that used to put more lights on his house! And this wasn't somebody with a lot of money or somebody in a big city either. This was just some guy from Cabin Creek, West Vriginia. Much like fireworks, Hill-billies and Rednecks have the market cornered with light displays. You've been in the city too long my friend.

|snoogans||Looks so fun!! I just spent 2 weeks in Japan and this seems quite similar to our trip, except we kept stumbling upon shady sex related things as well as the bright craziness you've captured.|

|A-bomb||Awesome pictorial guys! You make it sound so awesome now I want to get to Seoul around the holidays too. I nearly lost it when I saw the pics you and Re took in the booths. Can't wait to see the rest of your photos. HAVE A BONKERS CHRISTMAS!|
|Dec 8th, 2011 04:46 PM|
This is just making me want to go to Japan :P
How hard was it to get around & whatnot when you couldn't read the signs or speak the language (I assume you couldn't, feel free to bitchslap some sense into me if I'm wrong XD)

|Billy Chapman's Friend||Hi ROG & RE, These pictures are amazing! Thank you for sharing them on your website. This is my favorite time of year, and to see how South Korea celebrates Christmas is exciting to see. This is incredible! Did you happen to see any Silent Night Deadly Night 1 or 2, toys or movie memorabilia in the horror museum? (NAUGHTY!)|

|Fathom Zero||Crunky is delicious. An Asian market nearby has some. I always make sure to pick up a couple when I go for my noodles.|

"I never did learn what the "Mystery Action" was all about, and I'll be wondering about it for the rest of my life."
That's it. The Mystery Action is inflicting said wonder on unsuspecting rubes.
Also I would totally go to that cat cafe and FUCKFAKE.
Also also I lost my shit at the photo booth creations, especially the one with Wonder Turd.

Soooooooooo many memories flooding back to me thanks guys!
On the vending machines
[i]I know its insane just what all kinds of stuff they have in them. I've seen several that had packs and full cartons of cigarettes. I'm a smoker so I know first hand that over there in any little shop they have on the street you can get a pack of the best brand for just a dollar american currency. Totally Unreal[I
On Street Resteraunts
Hell of a way they can make potatoes eh RoG? I never got to eat anything like that but one of their most popular choices is Rat On a Stick though I can tell you that its just a clever name. Still for a beef on a stick which I know you're familliar with they are pretty tasty.
On the strange and bizzare toys and assorted novelties
It still amazes me what all they have over there. Its funny to see some of our most beloved and well despised celebraties on the box of some of the most insane shit they sell over there. Totaly amazing.
Yeah I witnessed first hand some of those protests and I chose to stay as far away as I could. Most of them are not the nicest bunch to say hi to especially if you're not from their country. The scary thing is if you get caught in a tussle with one of them even if you didnt start it you get thrown in jail and they dont have to even feed you.
On Street Merchants
Talk about going the extra mile for a sales pitch. If your eyes even wander close to one of the things they're selling they will go all out demonstrating what said object can do. They really pull no punches in trying to get you to buy their stuff. I guess everyone has to make a living somehow. Fortunately a lot of stuff there is cheap. The dollar really goes a long way.
On Seoul in General
Like I told you before its like being in another world over there and they definately do Christmas big. It's fortunate that you and Re decided to go this time of year because in the summertime it's nothing but a 3 month long monsoon season. Talk about rain 24/7. Anyway I loved the toys and wax figures that you all took. On a personal note I hope you enjoyed all the chicken and ramen that Seoul had plenty of to provide you two. Oh and I hope you steered clear of the kimchee.
Anyways thanks again for sharing these photos with us and bringing back memories for me personally.
