Me right after the show

Seoul International Firework festival is one of the biggest events in South Korea which is held every year. World-famous professional fireworks teams set the sky ablaze with spectacular fireworks, accompanied by lighting displays, laser shows, and a range of superb performances and events. 

In this year, the show was scheduled in October 4th, on Saturday. Just the same as last year, the location for the show is Yeouido Hangang River Park, one of the city's business and media epicenters. The fireworks festival takes place in front of the 63 building, and was sponsored by Hanwha Group. 

I know that I mind a BIG crowd. However, I didn't want to miss the effect of the music, noise, smells, etc. The feeling might be different I believe if I stay in between those millions people I believe. So, I decided just to go there and sit nearby the river. 

I went there 3 hours before the show, but OMG I couldn't even step on since the place was full of people. It was super duper crowded. Three hours before the show, the place was already full. Even though the place around the river was outrageously crowded, but it has the best views for the show. 

Another thing, when we got out of the subway, it took us over 20 minutes before we could emerge from the crowd and breathe some air. I have never seen so many people in one place. @.@ I felt dizzy and surprise at the same time.

Anyway, I really enjoyed watching the fireworks that exploded over Seoul sky. And specially watching the show with my beloved one. I know that individual might feel different thing of watching fireworks show, but me personally, it is just awesome to watch real time fireworks show while having beer and chicken nearby the Han River with somebody who I love.
