New Years Eve in Seoul

This is a document of my New Year’s Eve in Seoul, 2006. One month later, I would be leaving Korea to return to Canada. The new year’s festivities took place on Jongno road in central Seoul. There were just 1000s upon 1000s of people there, and no regard for safety with firecrackers and fireworks going off in all directions. Nearby is the Cheonggyecheon stream, so early in this video, there’s some scenes from there. My friend Matt Lamers was there, and he took some photos and video, too, a few of which I included here.
