crazy Jeju club

This Jeju nightclub was absurd! It was half Death Star, half Japanese video game - DDR style. This particular one was popular with a relatively older crowd.

The place was lit ridiculously, with automated walls. They kept opening and illuminated in different patterns. They would randomly drop platforms from the ceiling for the DJ and bands. They included a water show. The highlight was the ceiling opening up in 6 sections with bright lights and a foam bubbles.
Their custom was pretty strange. The bouncers would grab random Korean girls, who would kick and scream as they were being led to tables with guys, then sit politely with them. After a minute or two in front of the drink they would thank them and go off back to their table. Then the cycle would start again. No big mystery - everyone played along. Weird!

Jeju Island

Quick visit to Jeju Island, the "Hawaii" of Korea with my buddy Austin. It was a whirlwind of two day trip that felt more like going through the motions than a real vacation.

Did some ATV riding and skeet shooting - lame picture, but fun.

Excellent seafood buffet. Those yellow jet boats were out of order.

The maze wasn't too hard. Go Kart riding at the same place was a lot of fun. Scott and Billy rode their Harley's and took a ferry. I missed out on that one bigtime! That picture was in front of the "sex and health" museum.

The plan was to go hiking (right), but it was a bit overcast and we were late. Found out that the view is awesome if you have 4 hours to hike in each direction.
