Yes. We had a pillow fight. Yes. It was absolutely and completely epic. Yes. You should have been there!
A few weeks ago I had this stupid idea for all my friends to come and have a pillow fight at the park. One thing led to another and I created Seoul Flash Mobs. A few weeks ago we had our inaugural event with a onesie subway ride. Last Saturday was the real grand opening with the best pillow fight Korea has ever seen!
One thing led to another and the event went from a hundred or so RSVP’s to over 2,000! I worked with Minwoo from Seoul Gone Wild & Kiara from Explore Korea to help arrange a new location and set up a crazy after party. With weeks of anticipation future pillowfighters questioned what the “patriotic panda” signal would be as the organizers made sure the event would remain safe. No zippers or buttons was an easy sell as a few #sarcastaposts suggested bringing a traditional Korean wooden pillow.

Check out Symon Powlison & his team of camera men’s epic first person video. You really feel like you’re in the fight with his vidoe!
After inviting photographers, videographers, Go-Proers and even a drone pilot I knew they would capture the moments perfectly so I got to focus on being the patriotic panda. Scroll through the photos, watch the videos and you can see for yourself that you should join Seoul Flash Mob’s next event! We’ve got a Flash Dance Mob planned for June 20th and will announce another onesie event & a watergun fight soon!
A big thanks to my friend Sara for taking all the photos on my camera 🙂
Enjoy the rest of the photos!
