Felt a little burst of excitement there when I saw this pop up as a new post! Thought perhaps someone had caught wind of an upcoming fixture there! Will have to keep waiting.

You lot should just ring up the grounds staff and ask when the next "proper" match is.

That's could be arranged, but there likely isn't a proper match scheduled. I suggest because everything in Korea seems to be done at the last minute, even phone calls to grounds staff.

They would probably just laugh and then say "about the same time as Mipo's book comes out". :smt117

If I wasn't planning on being at BigBird on Sat, I'd fancy a trip south for a couple days of beach and sun with a pitstop at Muju for some pictures.

Across the road from the bus terminal...if there is ever a game there it would be easy to get to.

Some sad news: Muju Stadium architect Jeong Gi-yong (정기용) died approximately one year ago of colon cancer. A documentary about him ("Talking Architect", aka 말하는 건축가) debuted at the Pusan International Film Festival last October, and opened in Korean cinemas this past Thursday. It includes a clip where he moans about municipal officials building a structure behind one of the stands, preventing the trellis plants from receiving maximum sunlight. He also has a go at the former Seoul mayor for tearing down the former Dongdaemun Stadium (RIP).

The film was released by Thirty Toes (web)(Twitter), and will supposedly be available on DVD and BluRay.

And here's a link to watch the "Talking Architect" documentary mentioned above. In Korean, no subtitles, and the subject has to whisper most of the film due to his cancer...

I went down to muju. I didnt tell you about it because the car died driving from the mountains to jeonju.

The place looks cool. The grass is horrible. It looks better in pictures though.

Here is a video showing the development of Muju's wisteria roof. Unfortunately, it's on facebook, so not sure it'll open from the link but here goes (searched for but couldnt find an original source).

Thanks for posting that - I hadn't seen it. There's an HD version on YouTube.
