Bus



When I was at the FIFA World Cup in 2002 (I can't believe it was that long ago), I first discovered the joy of digital photography. I worked at the World Cup and this photo is of the Korean National Team bus. Koreans, teenage girls in particular, have a habit of expressing their love for various players of their favourite teams by drawing all over buses, dormitories, you name it. It's a hell of a sight!

San Nakji for President!

It is interesting to see what fans will do to show their support.

Hmmm, andd so these grafitti girls are Asia's version of the groupie...that's something to chew on. I think digital photography is just the greatest, it makes everything so easy.

I find this very interesting. They graffiti their favorite team bus. How funny! But, yes, I'm curious also as to what is says. Do you happen to know, SN??

Dude, if you ever go to Korea again, can you send me a postcard so that I might get a Korean stamp for my collection?? *bats eyelashes* Pretty please?

Fascinating. But I don't think it makes the bus look appealing.

Are you not too tired with playing football in your sofa ?
And not to disapointed Japan lost the first match against the weaker team of the group ?
Hope they will beat Brazil !!!
