Seoul Summer 2016

"Let's just organize a dance workshop."
"We can, but people can learn the dances themselves through youtube."
"True. What's your plan?"
"Something bigger."
"You sure?"
And that marked the start of a whole new adventure.

Seoul Summer 2016 -a K-pop cosplay and dance cover contest- happened last March 6, 2016 at SM Light Mall. It still amazes me how my friends and I (SeoulSearch Productions) were able to pull this thing off. I really didn't expect anything big to happen or many people to attend, but thankfully the outcome surpassed our expectations by a landslide. 

The preparations prior to the event were very hectic, but not as hectic as it was on the day itself. Sleeping at almost 3AM only to arrive at SM Light Mall by 7:30AM, and head on straight to work fixing the tech, music, and visuals, it was VERY TIRING, but I loved every single bit of it.

We ended the event with a new love for organizing events and a big chunk of respect for every single person behind them.

Scroll down to see some of my favourite pictures from #SEOULSUMMER2016 taken by Kevin Lee, Trixie Yusay, and your's truly.
Our Stage! I was freaking out when I saw this because, SEOUL SUMMER 2016 IS FINALLY HAPPENING!

What actually goes on behind the stage. I was in the middle of mixing the music to be used for the rest of the games.

While I was behind the stage, this was happening. Post-it game!

No, they're not sleeping. This is actually another game called Random Play Dance where the contestants simply dances the choreography to the playing song. The only challenge here is for them to keep up with the constantly changing songs. Funniest part of the event, this was so much fun to watch.

This time, the best shots from the Cover Group Dance contest! <3
