R-16 KOREA 2013 B-boy Master Championship Korea Nat. Qualifier @Uijeongbu City



 R-16 KOREA 2013 한국대표선발전 Korea Qualifiers (Korean B-boy Masters championship) were held at Uijeongbu Art Center in Gyeonggi province. It takes about 1 hour 20 minutes from Seoul to go there. 

Main categories were  

1- Popping
2- Locking 
3- B-boy crew Battle 



Popping Judges started show with their performance. First performance was awesome and cheered by crowd! 



After that 1 vs. 1 elimination round was conducted. Surprisingly, there were few girls in competition too! 

Next up was Locking session. It was more like a dance with hip-hop music. There were 4 girls competing in this session. They knocked out boys :)  


                                              
                            Two girls competing in locking session! 

Last and most exciting session was B-boy crew battle. It started off well with performance from judges ( especially african-americans)! 


                             
                   B-Boys facing each other in Crew Battle! 

A special dance performance was give by Seoul sistaz. they outnumbered many girls groups in Korea :)  I think more than 20+ girls danced in a synchronized way! 



                 Special Performance by Seoul Sistaz! 

Towards the end of show, finals of each sessions were conducted. Winner of locking contest was Luna. She was crying while receiving prize :) 




Star of SHOW was 'POCKET' from MORNING OF OWN Crew. Final battle was between Morning of Own and Drifterz Crew. 

It was close and exciting contest. Judges had hard time choosing winner, however real difference maker was POCKET from Morning of Owl crew. He performed amazingly and stole show! 



Classy moment when Pocket took out his short while performing :) 


Winner Team Congrats!!!

Daejeon visit: A day away from Seoul and Suwon

Its hard to go out when rain is pouring down cats and dogs! Though Sunday is mostly the free day to visit places outside Seoul (if planned 1 day trip), yet it is tricky as next day is working day! 
It was my first experience to travel via KTx (Suwon to Daejeon Station).  It costs 10,000 - 11,000 KRW from Suwon to Daejon (KTx). and traveling time is 1 hour 10 minutes. It sounds funny that I missed Daejeon station and dropped out at next station :-)  Though I came back via next train for free but it was new experience for me! Adventurous!
  The first impression of Daejeon was good on me, because I saw flag of Pakistan outside Daejeon station among Korean war supporters! The second impression of Daejeon was " It is quiet and serene place"  Yes, indeed!





























The first sightseeing in Daejoen was "Daejeon Steam"  It follows through the city and provides a good place for picnic and cycling!

After eating the delicious lunch, I headed for Daejeon Art Museum. The museum was surrou…
