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 :)

Global Seoul Mate's I Like Seoul mission!

I like many things about Seoul such as its parks, mountains, palaces, restaurants, transportation system Etc. Among all of previously mentioned places, I like Han River Parks (한강공원) the most!!

Picnic at one of many parks is best way to spend your weekend during spring, summers or autumn. Many seoulites fascinate Hagang Parks for physical activities such as cycling and running. You will often find people practicing for marathons or cycling events or just doing it as hobby!

Since I moved to Korea, I was searching for nice tracks and parks. Han river parks were simply best! They provide breathtaking views ,therefore I choose it be my favorite thing about Seoul!!

I LIKE Han River Parks in Seoul because I can run or ride bicycle there! Moreover, I can enjoy picnic with friends over there :)

Han River Parks = Nature + Picnic + Walk ,+ Peace + Serenity + Running + Cycling + AdayOut!


I borrowed some information from visitKorea website about best cycling tracks.
