The once desiccating sun is setting and cool evening breeze is blowing. Smells of barbeque is flowing and lights of booths are turning. People are busying themselves here and there in preparation for the outdoor pubs and game activities. With games and activities during the day and pubs and performances during the night, the festival seems exciting and lively.
During the day, games and amusement activities were set up in every corner of Hanmadang (Han Yard). By the name of High Five with the Booths, the planning committee this year has prepared five booths of funs and activities: escape-the-room game, hair chalk booth, Hanyang Land, eat-alone-competition, and Alohanyang. Among the five, the most popular booth seemed to be the escape-the-room game, as far more than expected students visited the booth and protracted the activity for a day longer. Hair chalk booth was big hit, too, as many people were interested in coloring their hair free from damage and permanency. In Hanyang Land, there were a mini Viking ride, punch-machine, and bubble wrestling.
Other booths set up by various clubs also offered games and activities along the track. Table tennis, archery, face painting, and baseball were situated in corners of the pathway.
During the night, outdoor pubs and kiosks of barbeque and cocktail were attracting lines and lines of students. The smell of barbeque sticks and the music of outdoor pubs seemed spirited and youthful, as everyone was eating, drinking, talking, singing, and socializing as a big group. Going a little uphill toward the outdoor theater, swarm of people were gathered around the stage, as they longed to see a famous idol group Girlfriend. Cheers and shouts for their desired celebrity was well heard across the area and the performance even invigorated the crowd louder and stronger.
