We meet in ghetto Seoul

I met @mineopoly in one of the most ghetto places in Seoul (연신내). It's a town at the very edge of the city. You can compare this to my last post. The streets are nasty and there's drunk people everywhere. @mineopoly told me people fight on the streets all the time, in broad daylight.

I still liked the place because it reminded me of old school Seoul and the food was affordable. We had seasoned beef + beer. They weren't premium but not too cheap either. 'Decent' I would say.

I don't really know why they call this 'Yolo Street'. Maybe it's because there's a lot of bars where you can get drunk and pick fights. More like 'There is No Tomorrow'.

The town is right below the biggest mountain in Seoul. It's the same mountain that North Korean spies came through and almost assassinated the president in the 60s. After finishing our beer, we had a little hike. This particular place was owned by a church. It was nice with swimming pools and shit. It wasn't managed though. If it were I might've jumped in because it was hot as hell, a record breaking heat in decades.

The picture of the corner of town is beautiful. the most beautiful is the top of the mountain behind you.

Have fun on weekend @roundbeargames

·

i'm glad you find it interesting :) and yes mountains are beautiful. enjoy your weekend man.

That looks rich AF! That's one ghetto I'd love to live in!

·

trust me you don't wanna live there! some of the people were scary, as in they looked crazy and unpredictable. i kinda wanted to include them in the photos but i was fearful i might get stabbed or something.
houses there seemed relatively cheap but people still prefer places like 여의도 or 강남.

·
·

Now I really wanna visit :) I ain't scared with you guys by my side, we crazier than all of them combined! lol I'll sign them thugs up on steemit and tell them to stop wasting their time stabbing people - start blogging and earning instead XD

·
·
·

haha they probably won't understand keyboard and mouse, or touch screens! 😁

·
·
·
·

Everone understands touchscreens in Korea! This here is the birthplace of touchscreens !

·
·
·
·
·

not the people in 연신내! 😃

Hey, I wasn't even aware of that subway line - I see one can hop onto it from Sangbong - that makes it pretty Ghetto in my book! That mountain is the one that cyclists like to ascend - Bukhan Mnt?

·

yes sounds like you know seoul! bukhan mnt is so big there's all sorts of trails so i'm sure there's one for cyclists too! 😎

bonitas fotografias amigo,espero se encuentre bien ,gracias por su valioso aporte,le agradezco,saludos y feliz noche

I see the last image and I feel heated, hehehe. I guess there are many people in the day. I hope you enjoyed the ride. Regards

·

oh the summer + concrete is no joke 😐
i'm not feeling sick anymore so i think i should get my ac fixed. or get a new one!

Haha looking forward to the three steemians meeting at yolo street then... but please don't fight... 😝

·

haha no i'm very peaceful 😁
i'm looking forward to it too

·
·

My korea Friend told me , her son tends to fights when he meets korean classmates.... so I'm worry...😝

·
·
·

well kids are kinda like that 😆
i just hope it's not too serious

wonderful pictures @roundbeargames, I see you had fun and that's good
good night

·

yes it was fun :)
have a nice weekend

A great day considering the heat. That is one of the best YOLO street pictures I have seen yet. It looks like you added 대 to the 박... but those labels were already there. I'm not going to be on Steemit much this weekend but curiosity brought me here again. I have nothing on my blog so I will reblog this.

·

well we had a 대박 day. it was fun. 😎
your knowledge on yolo street was insane.

The YOLO Street earned my respect :P

·

lol mine too 😄 in a weird way!
i definitely wouldn't want to live there tho

I like to see you with that big smile friend, it was a wonderful day

·

I like to see you
With that big smile friend, it was

·

For sure, we can go hang out by the Han. :D

·
·
·

more seoul steemians!

Mi amigo @roundbeargames por lo que veo en las imágenes que presentó ya está muy mejor de la enfermedad que lo atacó , gracias a Dios amigo estás bien , saludos y que tenga un buen día .

·

the heat is now killing me so i'm still not feeling normal 😆

·
·

Qué malo amigo que allá en su país haga mucho calor ; lo que tiene que hacer es tomar mucho líquido . Que tenga un Feliz día amigo .

Try it I can join the three of you must be excited 😁😊, you know that I see the food is so interesting, I am very interested in korean food, by the way say my regards to @mineopoly

·

well let's hope that one day you can come and try them yourself! 😎 one day..

·
·

Yes one day but do not know when😎

·
·
·

i dunno either :)
but you never know

·
·
·
·

😀ya you're right I'll never know

You and your friend looking so cute. Really this place is more and more beautiful.

It would be great to see @kaliju, up and going again!

·

more seoul steemians the better! 😄

·
·

Absolutely!

Hmm... I saw a lot of Paris Baguette everywhere when I was in Busan, but in the end didn't get to try it even once. Now, seeing the last photo from your post kinda reminds me of the smell from the outside of those bread shops are insanely seductive!

·

yes it's probably the most popular bakery in korea. the funny thing is they expanded to france a few years ago. i suppose they're legit.
but one thing i'm sure is that no bread is as good as it smells. at least none that i've had! 😄

its very important to enjoy life. i am also think thats its the day i live is the last day . i dont know tomorrow i live or die.. bt i dont drink.. just enjoy my life..

enjoy your day dear friend. and be safe travel

·

yes enjoying is just as important as hustling 👍
very good point

Good post friend, I liked that landscape too, the field in combination with the mountain looks incredible, I also saw that you can play soccer, it is my favorite sport and it would be a pleasure tone for me to play in such a field. I hope you have a good weekend.

·

oh i haven't played soccer in a decade! we just thought it was cool they had a soccer field in the middle of a mountain. it was quite a nice place :)

·
·

Yes friend, just by seeing it, you feel how nice it would be to play there.

That was on autopilot, didn't mean to spam ya :P

·
·
·

i like it tho

While you were visiting, did not a fight occur? I imagine that those fights are due to excess alcohol.

I loved your photo surrounded by so much green that the site looked very good.

·

well @mineopoly told me he saw one earlier. but the way some of the people looked i can guess it happens very frequently.
yes green is beautiful :)

·

They mostly occur in the late evening or early morning mostly due to bar tabs or other business disagreements from the activities of the night. We were there around 1pm on one of the hottest days of the year so we didn't see a fight just a small outburst.

Thank you fir taking us to your adventure with sir @mineopoly... I love the affordable but decent food.... Enjoy your day sir... 😘😘😘

·

the hike was indeed an adventure because it was soooo hot and we were sweating like mad. enjoy your weekend :) i love cheap food too 👍

Have a nice day
Happy weekend 😎😊

say my regards to @mineopoly

·

oh yes koreans like to travel to indonesia all the time. maybe i will pay a little visit too 😎

·
·

I hope hopefully be true @roundbeargames 👌👍😎😊

With so much heat, how many beers did you have to drink? that ghetto beef looks very tasty

·

we only had 2 bottles! beer actually makes it worse!
the beef was good yes 😄

Awesome, and it's reflecting as both of you had an great time for sure, and yes drunk people don't know what they are doing, and most of the people forget what they have done when they were drunk.

And particularly i really liked the pictures of that Grassy Ground and it's encouraging and appealing to play the Football for sure, and i am missing the Football due to continuous rain.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

Fights in broad daylight? Sounds scary. I’m glad you can find some affordable food in Seoul, the more upscale districts sound brutal. TINT LOL! I’m glad you can meet up with so many Steemians, bringing real life experiences to the online mix.

·

meeting steemians is cool!
and yes just like any other city, seoul has it's ghetto parts and rich neighborhoods :)
the town did kinda look scary because i wasn't seeing the usual type of people.

great pictures brother I imagine you open funny greetings ..
