a few of us caught varekai in seoul. there was a large crowd for the show and for the baseball game just across the parking lot. swon missed the first 20 minutes due to traffic, and hazel had hot coffee accidentally poured on her (landing her in the nurse's office for a while) but we were finally all seated and enjoyed the show. afterward we had some great thai food for dinner.
