Favorite thing: As we are all more than aware, 2002 heralded the Fifa Football World Cup, Co-hosted by Japan and Korea.
I remember before the world Cup started, a lot of Korean Journalists went to some football crazy countries like Brazil, Argentina and Italy and asked locals in the street, "Where is this year's World Cup being Hosted?" Virtually everybody replied "Japan!"
Much to the disappointment of the Korean public who were hoping that the World cup would Showcase south Korea.
Anyway, after the world Cup had finished the Journalists asked the same question to the same football crazy people, from the same football crazy countries. Virtually Everybody replied "Korea!" Why, well Korea did showcase themselves, with amazing spirit, support and sportsmanship.
Fondest memory: I will never forget being part of the support. The thousands of people in the streets, in the city squares, filling the stadiums in a sea of red. All yelling Slogans and singing songs like "Pilsung Korea" by Yoon Do Hyun Band.
Its was contagious, and compelling. One could do nothing but be picked up and swept away with the momentum.
The picture to the left shows a small portion of the 'Red Army' All chating "Dae Han Min Guk, Da Da Da Dum Dum!" So exciting. I am so happy to experience mass celebration at this level. Now I know what the Korean people mean by 'Oori" or 'We'.
