Monday Seoul | Yeouido 여의도

I finally did it. I made a video outside.

If you've been following me long enough, you know that I'm quite anti-social. I love staying home. I don't like going outside, let alone recording myself talking in public space.

Today I decided to try something new, so here it is. It was raining and the wind was blowing into my eyes. Otherwise I wouldn't frown while I'm recording.


To me, Yeouido(여의도) is a place with a lot of memories. As a kid, I came here every weekend with my family. In college, this was the place to get drunk. I still come here often for a walk with my wife.

Here're some of the pictures I took.

↑ I have no idea what they mean by 'I Seoul U'. It's written by some government official. They have no brains. It's still a nice park..

I wanted to take more photos, but it started raining hard so I went home.

↑ This is the church that I talked about in my video. It's one of the biggest ones in the world. Every year, they make over $100 million in 'sales'. It's probably one of the easiest, most legal ways to launder your money. They pay no taxes too. It's a lucrative business.

I have long wanted to make a vlog outside the room but to this day it has not been successful, because my daily activities are involved with office hours work. I hope that someday I can make my first vlog.

Congratulations to you who made this public video @roundbeargames

·

i hope you get your chance soon! looking forward to seeing it! 👍

It's so cool you make videos outdoors. You can feel a little natural wind and rain. A good video picture with a background of tall buildings and flowing rivers plus a view of the green trees.

the picture is also good, there is a river with a long bridge and a lounge chair on the edge. also a large field with shady trees.

·

haha very descriptive! i'm happy to finally make one video outdoors. i plan to do more 😎

·
·

steady, 👍
Continue your plan.

I enjoyed the video and your narrative.

Yeah water (rivers, lakes or seas) in general has a calming effect on people.

·

it sure does! 😄
i have no idea why but i know many people feel the same way 👍

·
·

I believe it affects our electromagnetic field.

I've noticed trees have a similar calming effect. Even in the city where there are only rows of trees just walking by them will help calm your mind.

·
·
·

interesting! i remember i read somewhere if you live by the ocean, you have less stress. i have no idea if it's true, but i sure would like to have a beach house, with lots of trees too! 😄

@roundbeargames, First of all i want to say about one fun aspect and that is, let's imagine I Seoul U as an Cryptology for you and by that i mean now read it as I Soul U, and now in my opinion you can connect with it like I = You, Soul = Memories of this place which you've spent from childhood to till now and U = Actual place, and I've solved the Cryptology. Ha ha 🙂.

But yes, this view is really beautiful and we can see the Overcast condition in this video and i can say that, this essence was great and coffee would be the best option while exploring the beauty.

And in my opinion, no matter how the place is, when we spent our years at one place that becomes an Homie Hood for sure and those memories are precious because Physically we cannot access the past but through memories we can access those moments Subconsciously.

Thanks for sharing this video with us and wishing you an great day. Stay blessed. 🙂

·

Dang what an analogy! Youre trying to make sense out of all this! 😄👍

I likw what youre saying. Everybody has their own filters that are based on their past experiences.
Blessings man ☕

·
·

Thank you so much for these kind words and response. Stay blessed. 🙂

·
·
·

your support is always appreciated brother 👍

·
·
·
·

These are warm words brother. Enjoy your day ahead. 🙂

Haha was wondering the same thing but if you dont know the meaning of 'I Seoul U' no one will anyway @roundbeargames with those whether conditions I dont blame you for not wanting to go out lol its a good excuse to stay inside some more hehe but still good job on pushing yourself to get outside.

·

nobody understands it! 😆
anyways i like to stay home even if the weather's good! 😺

I like it :)

·

감사합니다 ^^

Finally you leave the house to go for a walk and make a video. I like your video @roundbeargames 👍👌

it turns out that in your country it rained heavily, in my country Indonesia is in the dry season, it has been raining for several days. I like to see photos of women riding bicycles with small children, where I live rarely are people including women riding bicycles, they prefer to ride motorcycle.

I still like to ride a bicycle when I take school children to all sports.

Aku very nice and magnificent church building, I was curious about the atmosphere inside

·

people don't really ride motorcyles in korea. maybe kids or delivery guys. or people who it enjoy it as a hobby. but they're not the mainstream.
the church i was making fun of because it's more like a business entity 😆
but anyways thanks for the support! 👍

앗 저 여기 거의 맨날 뛰러 가는데!!! ㅋㅋㅋㅋ 날씨 더워지고 안간지 쫌 됐네요 ㅎㅎ 이제 선선해지니 다시 뛰러 가야겠어요

·

헐 ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
저도 예전에 자전거 자주 탔었는데.. 갈수록 안하게되네요 ㅋㅋㅋ

저 여의도사는데 ㅋㅋㅋ 이렇게보니 좋네요 ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

·

ㅋㅋㅋ 어쩌면 만났을 수도 있겠네요 😃

Yeay! Finally you made the video in outside, @roundbeargames!
I love this place, especially with started raining.
KOREA is very nice country.I have some friends who study and work there...

·

that's cool. some of the things i love about this country. but there's also parts that i absolutely hate 😃

Wealth of information posted today.
Good compositionpictures & video.

·

ok you can stop posting replies with flowers now.

Video is great! During the rain season clouds can be pretty moody and grey all the time. But I think you managed to shoot some great views. Regards

·

감사합니다 ^^ 멋진 포스팅 많이하셨네요 ㄷㄷㄷ
저랑 뭔가 굉장히 다른 삶고 살고 계신분 👍

excellent brother video I would like to upload many videos that I have to show you more things about my country but I do not know how to do it ..

·

all you need is your phone! 😃
just google stuff and you're on your way!

buenos dias,muy buena informacion y lindas fotos,gracias y saludos

I like the rainy look! And you make a good point about the lucrative church 'business'.
🍌

·

haha i like what you're doing with the account 😃
and yes surely the church is a business these days! at least the big ones.

·
·

Thanks! We're just a bunch of, well, bananas ~ hangin' out in the Steemiverse.
🍌

·
·
·

haha i love the concept!

The video is great - I have to make a trip to that place. It looks great. That building, the golden one - is that the 63 building?

·

haha yes you know! the old landmark :)
just lemme know if you're ever in seoul!

·
·

I fell in love with that landmark. It's so beautiful in its form and color - constructed on a spot visible from many places. Best seen as the sun sets on the Han-gang. Thank you for the invitation, my friend. I will let you know at a time we are likely both free. Life gets so busy, right.

Bless you for sharing this nostalgic piece of video. You have a good 'video presence', and you speak about matters that are dear to you. That's what I like.

·
·
·

thanks man! i figured i should just talk about my own feelings rather than trying to explain shit to people 😆

i used to love that building as a kid. as you know, it used to be the ultimate landmark for seoul when it was the tallest building in the country. back then my family went there every week because it was the most modern place. now we have many others that are much taller so people don't really talk about it anymore.

anyways yes life is super busy. but if you're visiting, surely i'll make time! 😄

"Talk about stupid shit"
Love the attitude my dude, thanks for the small tour. Seoul looks like a very awesome place to visit.

·

lol thanks!
some parts of the city are awesome. some are not 😃
overall it's alright 👍

Nice seeing you outside eventhough it is raining.... Everytime I read your blog it made me laugh or smile,,, especially this one

I have no idea what they mean by 'I Seoul U'. It's written by some government official. They have no brains. It's still a nice park..

Hope to see more from the outside... Have a good day sir.. 😘😍

·

i'm glad you like it. i'm only saying what i believe! 😄
whoever wrote that clearly doesn't know anything. or maybe i dunno something that's supposed to be super cool and amazing..
anyways thanks for watching!

I'm glad you decided to make a video on the street, it's great! You should do it more often, so we know the places in Seoul and tell us what you think of that 👍

·

I plan to do more soon! 😁
I also think i need to talk about other stuff as well, not just my projects 👍

·
·

Excellent! Success with that👍
I will be pending😁

je je that was good that you dared to do something new for you, you see that you enjoyed it and you did very well despite the rain, hehe I hope that shyness has happened to you a little friend

·

Well im still very shy. Nothings gonna change that. Today i just felt like i should try something new 😁
It was fun. I still wouldnt do it in a crowded place yet! 😅

·
·

je je the good thing was that you dared and it came out incredible those are the best moments 😅

you stay in a wonderful county my friend....

·

thanks. some parts of the city i love. but there's also things i hate 😌
i shall talk about them more in detail later on.

I guess you're not the type of guy who likes to get drunk. but I'm wrong😋😅

·

oh no i love drinking. you have no idea how much i used to drink when i had a deskjob! 😦

·
·

Hahaha ok ok,, I know. .😅😁
means you are a good child😚

dude, that church is huge. good on you for making a video outside, it can be akward at first with other people around, but like all things you get used to it. i'll be going to seoul next year so hopefully i can view some of these. Follow'd keep up posting :)

·

yes it's super awkward! but i'll get used to it soon enough :)
followed too. thanks for stopping by, and lemme know when you're in korea! 😎

Nice post and nice video! It was a really cloudy day and what church is this, it's the thing that stuck to my mind the most!

·

i'm not so fond of the church being so corporate. but i like the city.
the weather was horrible but i still like it because it's less crowded 😺

·
·

Oh yes bad weather always means less people outside! The church's architecture is also really different from everything I have ever seen!

·
·
·

it's very different for me too! 😆
i'm actually making fun of it because it's more of a business entity than religion :)

·
·
·
·

Exactly, it's a little bit weird for a church!

Buenas tardes amigo bonitas fotos de ese parque de verdad se ve que es para pasar y compartir un agradable momento en familia y amistades saludos

·

haha thanks but those are random people i saw from a distance. i went there alone 😆
saludos!

What a good friend, recording outdoors you learn to lose your fear. I congratulate you brother and very beautiful church. I could not watch the video because of the slowness of the internet. greeting

·

that's too bad 😆 hopefully one day venezuela will have better internet 😌

nice place friend was a great choice, heh I see you enjoyed it all well greetings and happy night

·

yes it was fun 😄
i was very anxious in the beginning of the video but i got used to it.
i plan to do more later!

·
·

in fact it would be good idea hehe

hehe good for you that you surpass your limits and went out for a video

one small step for man one giant leap for mankind

The place looks cool, the church seems to be one of the best "legal" businesses in there! ( in here they basically own everything :P) and for some reason the only thing came to my mind by checking the "i seoul you" was "i salute you" :P

·

hey man welcome back! yes the church in many countries is the most legal way to do illegal shit! 😆
i plan to do another video next monday. haven't exactly decided where yet.

·
·

haha just go out and make one! i think mostly none cares so much about the place cause the majority haven't seen anything about Korea :P so even if it is a random alley i will see something new a different :P

·
·
·

yes i figured anywhere would do 😄
for now i'm just recording general areas. maybe later i'll do specific places.

Me too.. I prefer like to stay at home than go to outside 😊😊 but I think is a good idea for enjoying go to outside, yes because that's our life not for alone and make it better for give smile to anothers at the outside.

Really beautiful place @roundbeargames Oppa. Next.. next..next.. my dream journey go to the south Korea.
Thank you so much..from you I can see the other side of KPop country.
Love your traveling post..

I am waiting for your next travel stories

😄 i feel like a lot of people are shy but most platforms reward those who are outspoken and good at sales. but i guess i'm just trying to be me haha.
i hate kpop because it doesn't represent life in korea in any way. it's fake shallow shit where people pretend they're 'living the life', when most people struggle just to survive.
anyways i'll do more soon! thanks for the support! 👍

·
·

But you're doing great the scene... I love behind the scenes 😂😂

More korean people also korean artist learn about indonesian languages and cover Indonesian song to be Korean language. I know some korean people at YouTube channel always cover and talking about Indonesia, they're success and some built their carrier in my country. I am so proudly with that although I know whats the main reasons is to get more indonesian subscriber. As we know Indonesia is best market for new trend and Indonesian people always interesting with foreign peoples who loves our country... No Matter what... I still appreciate with them. 🤩🤩

you are cooler outside @roundbeargames 😀😂🤣

·

thanks man 👊
i'm just trying out new shit!

Pity that it rained and the wind was strong because the place is very beautiful. I think steemit has made you less antisocial haha, I can assure you!

·

Haha yes it did 😂
And thats what happens when you offer rewards for posting! The incentives are stronger than my shyness 😂

·
·

Haha, that's a good incentive! In my case, I love taking pictures, so it does not cost much haha. I hope to upload a video too :)

·
·
·

You should! I did mine with a shitty phone haha. I would love to see your videos as well!

Thats crazy! Churches are the same way in America. I had no idea Seoul being an island! The video has a San Francisco feel to it!

·

that's crazy too! i've never been to san francisco so i have no idea.
btw seoul is not an island. this is an island inside seoul 😄

안녕하세요~~
좋은 콘텐츠네요 ㅎㅎ
팔로우할게요 자주 소통해요

·

·

we can get good energy from it.
I hope that @roundbeargames always has more time to enjoy the outdoors.

·

thanks! these days i've been kinda busy but hopefully i'll have more time soon!

Hey dude!

Thanks for sharing the your YouTubr video :)

Question why are you not creating Dtube or Dlive video ?

·

i did at one point. i'm just less interested in dtube right now. not a huge fan of their curation.
i'm still doing dlive videos sometimes :)

·
·

Fair enough!

I’m glad you’re still doing Dlive vlogs :)

Actually I’ll be Seoul from tomorrow until Sunday and hoping to meet some steemit users. It would br really nice meet you for a beer if you’re free dude...
