Shopping in Myeong-dong one day, I saw a free hugs guy...but I didn't give him a hug. And now I wish I had. So to make up for it, I'm spreading the hugs via this YouTube video.

It's from couple years ago, but it's exactly what I saw. While a lot of neighbourhoods look the same in this city, it looks like there's footage from Cheonggyecheon Stream, Dongdaemun, and Myeong-dong, so it's also a good little tour of Seoul. Let's free hugs! ^^

According to the description the uploader provided, the Korean written at the end of the video means:

Free Hugs In this place, there is love In this place, there are smiles and happiness To find this place, you need not money You just need a little courage Stop. Look around and see your friends and family And share the love Let's free hugs!
