That’s right people…THIS summer! Not 2007, not 2008. I wasn’t even telling you to come last summer or last YEAR for that matter. This summer! Why??
Does she ring a bell?
That’s right baby! You guessed it…the World Cup! If you aren’t going to be in Germany this June, the second best place in the world will be none other than right here in Seoul, South Korea. You gotta be here! Now I don’t want to hear any excuses like its not going to be as good this year or that even plane tickets are too expensive. Nonsense…you can STAY with me. You can’t put a price on what happened here last time and you can’t put a price on what WILL happen this time around. This year’s cup will be filled with even more excitement as our energy and spirits will be fueled by the previous World Cup and the 4 long years of bragging rights!
It’s really hard to explain what happened here that magical summer, only that it was freaking AWESOME! Those memories were so sweet and savory, they still linger and will linger forever in the back of my head. It was like a party with your closest 46 million friends every day! Now I’ve heard some people try to explain what happened to others but its just not the same, so I can’t even dare to try. The feelings just cannot be captured through the use of words or pictures…or even film. You just had to be there. It was more than just the pure excitement from winning games, but more feelings of pride and harmony which kept everyone together in unison and so forth.
So rather than hearing it AGAIN from someone else, come out to Korea this year!
Just try to imagine millions of screaming HAPPY people wearing red T-shirts flooding City Hall and storming the streets of Kangnam. Painting a town red never meant the same when looking at it from a shade of Red Devil red. It was symbolism at its best.
People going nuts chanting “Dae Han Min Gook, chu-chu-chu-chu-chu”, other people leading charges and dancing in circles with their samul-norie instruments, random people gathering together, hugging each other and singing songs like it was something out of a Grateful Dead concert, strangers stopping strangers…just to shake their hands and congradulating one another, bars and restaurants giving out FREE food and drinks and fireworks going off in the background. It even went so far as to people hijacking buses and cars and stomping on the hoods of them.
The owners of those very same cars popping their heads out the windows and joining in with them…they didn’t care. It was World Cup Fever.
These are just some of the things that happened during a 2 week vaction here. Who knows what will happen when you come!
So let me remind you guys that the time is ticking. Another chance of a lifetime to be seized. Don’t let this opportunity slip by cause you’ll regret it if you do. Buy your tickets now!

– V for victory and V for visit Korea 2006!
