Seoul, Korea - Summer Study Abroad 2014 - Sinchon Water Gun Festival 2014 DJ area

While heading to our dinner spot, we were greeted by people selling water guns right near the entrance of the subway in Sinchon. Then we spotted so many people on the streets who were soaked from head to toe as we walked closer and closer to the main square. From the looks of it, there was  some sort of big water gun fight that was sponsored by Sprite Korea.

Later on we found out (either through signs nearby or a Facebook event page) that it was the 2nd Annual Sinchon Water Gun Festival that weekend. We missed the appearance of the then hottest idol in Korea that summer, Suzy from Miss A, who filmed her part for a Sprite commercial in the morning.

But fear not, the event was a weekend only affair. Day 35 was only Saturday, so our Sunday plans were unexpectedly set that night.

Mammoth Grill 맘모스 고기부페 was our night's dinner destination. This was another All-You-Can-Eat type KBBQ place that was conveniently located in Sinchon. Just like the previous AYCE meat grilling restaurant we went to, Mammoth was relatively inexpensive. I believe it was around ₩10,000- ₩12,000 per person. I also remember the meats here being a bit better than at Chakhan Pig, especially the thick cuts of pork belly! Oh what I would do to be able to eat at an inexpensive buffet KBBQ...
