As I was typing the DMZ entry in my hotel room, I heard a huge commotion outside, sound of people chanting in unison. I peeked out the window and saw a dozen flags waving in downtown Seoul! I wasn't sure what it was so I grabbed my jacket and went outside to check it out. It turned out to be a huge demonstration! Police in anti-riot gear were everywhere... here is a footage I put on Youtube. It was kind of surreal, nicely dressed ladies going about their business, people standing on steps to catch the protest with their cell phone cameras, and riot police running around. After about an hour or two, people scattered and things went back to normal as if nothing had happened. Just another day in Seoul.
