On Saturday, everyone in Korea will be watching the world cup game. So you are going to have stake out your spot early. Of course you can go to the COEX or to the CGV's (I heard they are doing the games in 3D!).

COEX Mall is going to have a Hyundai-sponsored event. I heard that On-The Borders is going to have giveaway margaritas before the envent.

Rumors from Davesesl that City Hall Event is canceled, but I don't have a confirmation on this.
