In the never-ending quest for B-roll, John, Pete, Melissa and I
woke up extra early and hit the streets of Seoul this morning, specifically the Namdaemun Market in the center of the city. It was fairly easy to navigate and we found a lot of cool things to shoot. The area is mostly shopping: clothing, kitchenware, miscellany... and lots and lots of shoes. Piles of shoes. There was also an array of interesting food vendors along the way. But words can't really describe it, so eyeball some super touristy photos after the click.
The loudest building in Seoul.
The Abbey Road of Seoul?
Sign to restaurant ratio = 5:1.
Pots full of food await you at every corner.
Clearly a fire hazard.
The entrance to the... Seoul train! (Sorry, can't help it.)
We spotted this guy selling his wares in the middle of a busy highway.
Dreams do come true: French fry bundles on a stick!
I'm not sure what peanut butter roast squid is, but he looks pissed.
Heaven forbid you ever forget that the 1988 Olympics were held here. There are reminders all over this city!
