If you couldn’t tell from our last video on Korean Foot Massages, we just bought a new camera, a Canon 550d (also known as a T2i). Woohoo! Anyhow, we were feeling artsy-fartsy with this new camera of ours, so we decided to make a video of something we’ve always found awesome: old Korean guys playing chess games in the park. They’re cold, but they bundle up and gather round to play games that we don’t know the rules to (or even the names of!). What we find most interesting is how so many people gather round to watch them play; there are more spectators than players. We decided to be among the spectators.
If any of you know anything about these games, please let us know. We think it’s like chess, with kings and queens and pawns, but the pieces are different. The game in black and white we haven’t a clue about.
