The following video is of a Korean TV commercial for what appears to be something that reduces stress, increases sperm count and sex drive, shrinks your prostate, and cleans out your urinary track by turning your penis into a howitzer. The full thing was nearly five minutes long, and somehow involved teepees and Chief Sitting Bull at one point. Ah, Korea.
I have mentioned this before, I think, but there are also TWO television stations that show video game competitions of Starcraft, a computer game that is well over 10 years old. People can win up to $10,000 playing in these competitions, with live studio audiences, giggling fan-girls, and the biggest names in Korean pop stars performing between matches. Cra-zy. They also show other games, such as first-person shooter Sudden Attack hints and industry news similar to the station G4 in the States, but mostly it is Starcraft 24-7.
Koreans, as far as I can tell, do not play football as we Americans think of it; but they do seem to have a fascination with it. This is especially true since the Steelers were in the Super Bowl. Hines Ward is half-Korean, and he has captured the imagination of Koreans in a strange, new way.
