Every year Daegu holds a festival downtown called Dongseongno Festival. It’s the summer’s largest festival to encourage foreigner-Korean relations. From what I saw they had a talent show, beauty contest, full body painting, beer drinking contest and a scavenger hunt. I could never resist a good scavenger hunt so I got a couple of good friends and off we went. When we received our list of 100 to dos we were about to throw in the towel. I mean pose for a pic with a Korean policeman and then have him arrest you! Interrupting an innocent couple enjoying a day at the Nooribong (singing room) and joining them for a song, which we had to do twice because my lovely teammate deleted the first video!
Koreans are pretty conservative and I’m hesitant to ask for ridiculous favors but…we got into it. One team member went as far as piercing her nose. Here is some media evidence.
I also have a few videos of my teammate Kylie and I break dancing. Breakin’ in da Streetz Mind you neither of us are breakers but that didn’t stop us. Another video of me Chugging a cup of hot ass Dukbokki (Red chili liquid).
In the end we came in 8th place and didn’t win a hotel room or a gift certificate but I’d still say we were the real winners because we improved our Korean relations…whatever!
