Arriving at Seoul

Reached Seoul this morning. Took a bus to the service apartment booked for us. Then headed off to the Kofic (Korean Film Commission) offices at 1pm.

It was raining.

That's the Nandaemun, located in the heart of Seoul.

Their markets reminded me of the Pasar Malam (Malaysian night markets)

Then we reached the KOFIC office. We were there only for a while, in the DI (Digital Intermediate) Lab, discussing with the technician on the colour grading and preparation necessary for the film transfer.

More than an hour later, Sandy, who drove us to the office, brought both of us to a Korean restaurant.

We had the spicy soy bean soup.

Which was poured onto the rice. Really good stuff.

Post-production work will begin tomorrow.

By the way, did you guys know that Google has disabled the upload function on Youtube from the S. Koreans? It involved the South Korean real name verification law. Lots of hassle. I'll be testing Vimeo instead.
