Day 3 – Tuesday – Korean, K-Pop Dancing & Hiking (w/ video)

Wow! Today was one hell of a long, tiring day!

  1. First Korean lesson
  2. Did a K-Pop cover dance of Fantasic Baby by BigBang – video included 😉
  3. Walked up a small mountain to get to Namsan Tower

So in our Korean lesson we covered these

I knew most of these before I arrived. The vowels are across the top and the consonants on the left

Obviously I don’t have any more photos from the class so I’ll move on to number 2…the K-Pop dancing

Yes, as part of our program we were asked to do a cover dance of a k-pop song called Fantastic Baby BIGBANG

Here’s how it is supposed to look like

Here’s how our part looked.

The guy I danced with at the end was totally awesome, he even wanted a pic of us before we left xD

This guy has apparently been in some big k-pop videos including Gentlemen by PSY (The Gangnam Style guy)

This girl has been in some pretty big stuff too

So after we finished with the awesome K-pop stuff, we decided to head over to Nansang Tower in the centre of Seoul. It was one hell of a long hike with many detours and my legs are aching like hell right now.

By this point I am drenched in sweat and totally exhausted about 50% of the way up the mini-mountain

There came a point where we just HAD to stop, so we got some shaved ice aka patbingsu (팥빙수) with red bean and rice cake
