Considering how commercialized Korean culture is (that is, "brand is GOD!" mentality), I'm not surprised to see a lack of ubergeekness or even the over-geeknesss that is cosplay. Those unwanted behaviors are corrected early. XD Though on the other hand, it's funny since DIY is (was?) so big over there...
I'm in the Baltimore/DC/Viriginia area and so go to Katsucon and Otakon. I might go to smaller ones in the area too. Hope to see you around! I still can't go far for cons... ^^;;
Y'know, I applied for a job in Houston... but got rejected. (It was for HP so maybe I was out of my league. ^^;; )
