Hey everyone, 안녕하세요!
It’s Michin Alex (IG: michinalex) and Marco (IG: seoulmafia), and we’re going to Marco’s first ever baseball game!
No, not first ever Korean baseball game – though it is also his first Korean baseball game. It’s his actual first game ever – in any country , and we decided to go in style!
We went to Jamsil Baseball Stadium and ate like kings. We had cheese fries, samgyeopsal, jokbal, soondae, ddeokbokki, and more! Off-camera, we even had some ice cream^^
There was a lot to take in at the game ~ I’m not sure Marco learned any of the rules! But he sure did teach me a thing or two about cheering ~ that dude can DANCE! I didn’t know that the mafia had moves like that.
We also got to meet some of the LG super fans after the game. We went to a local bar and had some beer and munchies while talking baseball. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to be a part of a team’s fan base ~ it really seems like everyone is family.
As for me, it’s tough ~ I don’t have a favorite team in Korea … yet. I’ve cheered for the LG Twins (this game) and the Lotte Giants. I haven’t pledged my allegiance yet, but I’m afraid one day I’ll have to. But until that day, I’m just gonna enjoy Korean baseball games for what they are ~ a lot of food, a lot of beer, a lot of dancing, and a lot of cheering. If you ever have the chance, I’d recommend taking an afternoon off and checking out a game.
