A few weeks ago I had the crazy idea to start an epic pillow fight, one thing led to another and I created Seoul Flash Mobs. We decided to get our feet wet before the pillow fight (which is turning out to have almost 2,000 RSVP’s!) with a onesie subway ride.
The plan was simple. Give everyone an easy way to buy an animal onesie with enough time to order it (gmarket.com aka Ebay for Korea). We decided to meet at Dongdaemun History & Culture Park, a famous landmark that is often referred to as “that spaceship like thingy.” While there we would hang out with some “refreshments” before jumping on the subway to eventually make our way to Hongade for Crazy Multiply’s art show, Archaioposterus.
We ended up having so much fun in Dongdaemun and became mini celebrities as Korean parents tossed their kids into our hands for a quick photo op. We decided to stop in Gangnam for a second round of photos and jumped at the chance to dance to Gangnam Style!
On the subway I led a hilarious rendition of In the Jungle while our owl found his courage and started “flying” through the car. It was certainly a day to remember and I am already thinking about making this happen a few more times this year!
Like Seoul Flash Mobs on Facebook for more info and enjoy these silly photos! (A special thank you the unofficial photographers who took my camera and shot away whenever I asked! Suki French and Jeremiah French)
