홍대+ Church 누나s [Sisters]

Went to 홍대 [Hong-Dae] last weekend and they were having yet another creative event. 홍대 is a college town where everyone is free to express themselves through whatever media they choose. People paint the walls of the streets, play music in the parks, dance on corners of blocks, sell home-made clothing and jewelery, and sometimes just do random things that don't really make any sense to normal, non-artsy people.

It's kind of like the Berkley of Seoul.

The pictures below are from an event where they handed out a huge square serving of 떡 (Rice bread?) and a plastic ball. Eat the 떡 and doodle on the ball. After one finished doodling, they place the ball in one of the holes in the wall. Didn't get the point, but uhh... it was kind of cool lookin?

These are the 누나s from my church.

The one on the way right is just a visitor, but the one next to her is a TV show host. She's on TV a few times a week as the leading host. She's nice. Aside from her, everyone else has a design background. They majored in Illustration, Photography, Product Design, and Interior Design (from left to right). So cool.

We ate 팟빙수 (Shaved Ice) and it was yummy.

I think I kind of went overboard with the lens flares. I need to figure out a new element to editing. Frigginayyy.

Choir Practice

My cousin asked me to take some pictures for his choir. I really like the group shots.

You can see people bustin' up at my lame Korean jokes.
Whatever gets a smile, right? :)

P.S. I tried to make a watermark (iN ate) then I realized that the "i" in the beginning has been unofficially trademarked by Apple. I hate Apple. It was supposed to be "iNate" like "innate". Thought I was being original. Back to the drawing board.
