South Koreans Gone Wild!

The overconsumption of alcohol can do many interesting things to people. It's an easy way to make friends on the subway and help you fall asleep. It can also make you dress up like your favorite comic book character in 30 degree Celsius weather, on a Saturday!

Just outside of the 2007 Seoul Wine Market, there was another convention going on. It was some sort of comic book convention and hundreds of people were having some fun dressed up as various comic book/animation characters from "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya". Either there wasn't really a convention going on, or they had one too many samples of wine from the Wine Market! I present to you...South Koreans Gone Wild (not to be confused with Girls Gone Wild)!

These girls were playing some sort of game, almost similar to "Simon says":

Sailor Moon's South Korean counterparts (they are supposed to be Sailor Moon, right?! Correct me if I'm wrong! characters from anime, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya--thanks Anonymous!):

Playing the violin is more enjoyable when you're wearing a light blue wig:

Everybody was waiting for the convention to open. It seemed like they were waiting all day:

Air guitar rules baby!

This little outfit was definitely "moo-ving":

Everyone was having a great time from the looks of it. It seemed like Halloween more than anything. What's your favorite comic book/cartoon character?

My favorite cartoon character is Totoro!

They are not "sailor moon" but are supposed to be characters from "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" which is probably the most popular anime of last year and one of the best in my opinion.

I love Totoro too! And most of the works from Studio Ghibli & Miyazaki.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

bokumbop: I'm not sure, but they were wearing sort of dust masks...either way it was pretty interesting.
