Halloween: a night full of costumes and, often, wild parties - at least in America. Here in Korea, where Halloween is not a traditional holiday, things are different. Outside of major metropolitan areas, the night is like any other, but inside the big cities, and especially in Seoul, the parties abound and in several bar districts people clad in cat suits, Captain America costumes, and more, can easily be seen. This year was certainly no different. Though, I have no crazy stories to tell because I did not engage in such festivities. Instead, I joined a small group in performing at SwingPop's Halloween party.
Here in Seoul, there are many places for swing dancing. In fact, if you wanted, you could find a social dance on any night of the week! I chose SwingPop mostly because it's very close to my home. I've had a great time the past few months, but with the way things are progressing at school, I have a feeling it will be difficult for me to come consistently for a while.
