I 'll add for travel info, that yesterday the Express bus stops outside stadium once it leaves the expressway, before heading to terminal, 15 mins more on bus. This was a deluxe from seoul central city, they stop on way past so could probably make it there in three hours depending on traffic. Will have to get to bus terminal to return to seoul though as doesn't stop there on way out.

I was wondering why Jeonbuk and Chunnam have two different spelling. Because of this, both sound differently in English.
In Korean, both start with ì „ - the word represents Jeolla-do.

Different styles in putting Korean into the Latin alphabet, I'm too lazy to look things up right now but a new style came out a while ago, and is more common, but you still see the old style from time to time.

Chunnam is the old style and Jeonbuk is using the new style. Other examples would be "Pusan" instead of the Busan we know today and Kimpo instead of Gimpo.

How about screwing the English and using the Korean spelling. Yesterday, a girl told me some English nickname. I said, no. Give me your "real" name.

A lot of people in the wider world would be completely lost if they were only ever referred to as 전북 and 전남 . I wouldn't worry about it though. Now that the Outside View is becoming a worldwide hit, Koreans will soon start demanding it be spelt 춘남 anyway, so as to reflect the pronunciation more accurately. :albino:

Sure, listen to the radio. Did you know it's 영산 and sometimes 양산 military base in Seoul. You'd never know by listening to the radio it was 용산.

Course you would, round about dusk you can't move for dragons flying off the mountain in that part of town. :albino:

I'm here just to see if I recommended the bibimbap at the National Museum in Jeonju (they have a special food heritage centre there). Best bibimbap I had in Korea.

Just by the by, some of my friends in London used to get Egyptian TV via satellite. We used to watch the football they had on there, without ever knowing who was playing, even though I'm sure the commentator was always telling us and it was clearly written on the screen مصر مقابل تونس

Yea, there are quite a few good bibimbap places, but you dont have to go all the way to the traditional village.

I wanted to update to say there is a KTX station in Jeonju now, so it's now longer useful to take the KTX to Iksan.

A taxi from the train station might run you 8,000, a taxi from the bus station will be cheaper, at about 5,000. The problem with the stadium being on the edge of town, it's rather hard to catch a taxi from there, so best bet is to catch a bus back to center city.

Tickets have gone up to 10,000, but I think there is something with the K-League this year. Every away game I have been to, I get in free wearing a visiting jersey. They are trying to get attendance up, so JB has made a deal with other teams as well. Pretty sure for the exception of large teams, you would be able to waltz in for free to the SOUTH gate wearing your away team jersey.

If u plan on staying the night, Jeonbuk Uni has the best night life in Jeonju.

And of course, if you are coming to the stadium, ring me up before hand. 99% chance I'll be there...
well well well

Jeonbuk with more fancy benches now. Hope Seoul and Suwon follow this too.
