Hi! I’m Hyojin.
Did you enjoy watching us live streaming from various places in Seoul and do fun stuff for the One Day In Seoul event? You have no idea what I’m talking about? No worries! I will recap the event for you and let you know where you can watch the recorded videos!
On the 3rd of November, 2012, from 9 AM to 9 PM, we had a live streaming event to show you different spots in Seoul, do fun activities, and meet and talk to some of your favorite YouTubers and bloggers in Seoul. There were 12 main segments where we covered many different interesting places and topics. What if you have missed the event? You can still see the recorded videos from the live stream event by clicking on the links for each segment. Unfortunately, YouTube was down for a few hours in Korea during the event, so for some segments, we used Twitcasting instead of YouTube.
Broadcast Station Tour
For the first segment, we take everyone on a virtual tour to two Korean broadcasting stations; EBS and MBC. A famous radio show host, Angela Park shows us around EBS, and you can also see teacher 경은 visiting a sitcom studio set in MBC where they film a famous sitcom, 엄마는 뭐길래.
K-Pop Cover Songs
And for the second segment, we invite some talented indie bands to a cute cafe in Hongdae where they sing beautiful songs including some of your favorite K-pop songs.
Korean Culture Talk with Keith & Jamie
Next up, we visit a traditional yet modern Korean house and play some fun Korean games that the teachers used to play as children. Jamie Lee from Arirang Radio and Keith Kim from Seoulistic.com also join us and play the games together.
Live Octopus Lunch!
For lunch, teacher Kyeongeun and teacher Kyunghwa take you to a delicious live octopus restaurant and will make you drool!
Korean B-Boys – Jinjo Crew
After lunch, teacher Hyunwoo introduces one of the most famous B-boy crews in Korea, Jinjo Crew. If you missed watching them dancing and teacher Hyunwoo dancing, be sure to click on the link below and watch their B-boy dance moves!
Walk with us in Gangnam
And of course, we can’t miss out Gangnam. If you ever got curious what Gangnam looks like after listening to the song Gangnam Style, follow teacher Kyungwha and teacher Seokjin, joined by two famous YouTubers, Michael Aronson and JE$$ICA.韓 (Jessica Han), walking around the Gangnam street.
Live Chat with Eat Your Kimchi
Another fun segment we prepared for K-pop lovers. Jamie Lee from Ariran Radio, and Jung Yoon Choi and Ji-Hoon Sun from ROKing Korea take you on a tour to some entertainment agency buildings where they train K-pop stars.
Make-up Shop in Gangnam
Now, I’m sure many of the K-pop stars and K-drama stars must be beautiful as they are without any make-up but I think they glow more with some professional make-up on. Teacher Kyeong-eun shows how it makes a difference by getting K-pop star make-up done herself!
Hongdae Live Tour
If you wander around in the Hongdae area, you might see TalkToMeInKorean teachers hanging out after work or during the weekend. Hongdae is one of TTMIK teachers’ favorite streets in Seoul and they will show you around the area! Javi from TodoCorea.com and HablameEnCoreano.com will join the tour and will introduce a street artist, KeBeaVer.
After all the walk (or watching us walk), if you are hungry, this time, teacher Hyunwoo and teacher Hyojin make you drool over Samgyeopsal. Samgyeopsal is one of the most famous Korean barbeque. If you see how we cook the pork, and how it sounds and looks, you will definitely become hungry.
Last but not least, we can’t end this enjoyable day without partying having delicious 치맥! Chicken and beer is one of the most beloved foods for Koreans. After we are done teasing you by eating all those delicious chicken and beer, we will show you how to play some Korean drinking games so that when you come visit Korea next time, you will enjoy your 치맥 with fun games!
We wrapped up our busy-yet-fun day showing you around Seoul with some delicious chicken and beer. BUT! We are not done yet! Throughout the live streaming event, we had 5 giveaway contests. Now, we are announcing the winners!
