Nice pro photography. Loved the gif. Funny :)

And the girls...well.. they are in the photos, I guess. :P
There are two routes to success in football. One is being good. The other is being lucky. You need both to win a championship. But you need only one to win a match.

Pretty bad year for K-Pop 2014 - 16 people killed during a K-Pop event in Seongnam after falling through a ventilation grate. :(

Scary....

4 minute concert in a public park. 30 something people up on a vent, said they wanted to get a better few. fell something like 20 meters down. not so much a bad year for kpop, as just a generally bad year for korea and safety concerns. boat, train, buildings, floods, and not this. cant remember anything other than floods in the past to be honest.

K-Pop fan becomes president of Indonesia. All the smart, cool kids love K-Pop. Take note OttoSilver:

The Hallyu fever in Indonesia is quite impressive.

I watched Super Junior’s concert twice because my daughter likes them. I stuck to my seat until the end. My son likes Korean food so much that he makes his own kimchi. I, too, like Korea. When I went to Korea, I got the impression that the cities were clean and organized. I don’t think it’s impossible for Indonesia to be like that, but we will need some time.

Ventilation grates aren't made out of magic. 30 people is too many. This isn't about construction, this is about crowd-control. Spatial awareness and how to act orderly in crowds are areas where Korea (and China) is decades, if not centuries behind. This is the inevitable, tragic, result.

The grate should have been cordoned off (it may well have been I don't know) and marked as unsafe. If they took that precaution and people climb on it anyway then its their own fault really.

There seem to be an awful lot of huge drops in Korean constructions though - football stadia being classic examples. I'm not sure how their building regs would compare to the UK/US/Canada/Australia for these kinds of things.

Normally the ajeosshis at these concerts are trying to get low than the performers not higher, all the better to get decent upskirt photos.

People fall out of baseball stadiums in the US often enough, usually trying to catch a ball over a low railing. There's certainly the opportunity to do yourself damage if you want to, even in Europe. I remember a large number of Brondby fans in Denmark falling into the pitchside moat in Vejle when a barrier gave way. There was a guy who died falling off one of the stands in Parken in Copenhagen about ten years ago and a number of people died at the Roskilde Festival back when.

There's a joke in there somewhere.

Even rokfootball members are not immune to this danger...although alcohol might jave been a contributing factor

The icy floor and pushing crowds were the bigger factor unfortunately. I'd have felt much better about the whole thing if it had been entirely my fault.
