    Before I moved back from Korea to Germany I visited “Korea in Motion”. It took place in Daegue in Nov 2007. Great Festival in a great city, very pleasant and less crowded than Seoul. Why is it since several years in Seoul? Aren’t there already too many festivals? Isn’t Seoul already horribly packed with events and people? Does Korea only consist of Seoul? Why not call it “Seoul in Motion”? There are similar festivals in France, in Orange (not in Paris), or in Great Britain in Edinburgh (not in London). I always thought the unbalanced development is an issue that Koreans want to address to become an advanced nation.
