City of Seoul

    This is the Seoul Olympic Boxing Stadium,
    where Kim from South Korea is determined to win the gold medal.
    And just while I say this, the referee has raised Kim’s hand, granting him the gold medal!

    Do you remember the emotivity of the Olympics?

    “Mom, where are my soccer shoes?”
    “So, are you going to the World DJ Festival or not?”
    “Gosh, where did I put my swimwear bag?”
    “Hurry hurry, we’ll be late!”
    “We won’t be late, don’t worry.”

    And that’s how the story of our family begins.

    Every Saturday morning,
    my family is divided into two teams.

    My grandfather, who still vividly remembers the emotivity of the Olympics,
    sometimes goes to the Seoul Olympic Exhibition Hall in Jamsil to remember old memories.

    Then, he plays golf with friends at Park Golf Course.

    My grandmother, who is a versatile sportswoman,
    has been going to the sports complex for over 10 years.

    She exercises, plays golf, table-tennis,
    and now she is into swimming.

    I, well, thanks to such grandparents,
    have played baseball and basketball since I was a child, learned survival swimming,
    and nowadays I enjoy playing futsal with my friends.

    You are asking what happened to family members who went to Mokdong, aren’t you?
    My father probably dropped off my mom and sister at Mokdong Indoor Ice Rink and went to the Sinwol Baseball Park.

    My mother, under the purpose of raising my sister as another Kim Yuna,
    has been practicing figure skating with my sister since she was a child.
    However, from my point of view, my mother seems to be more talented at it.

    My sister though, has a different talent.

    Cheering up handsome athletes
    Watching her favorite celebrity performances
    And going to festivals with friends

    My father says that, thanks to my athletic grandfather,
    he went to the ballpark since the first season of the Korean baseball league.
    He says that he even met my mother at the baseball park.

    Nowadays, he is actively engaged in…
    … a community baseball team.

    Today the team my family supports is playing at home,
    so we met again at the Sports Complex.

    This place is not only good for taking a walk with the family,
    but also has beautiful flowers in spring, and picturesque tints in autumn.

    Also, due to its affordable parking space, we sometimes park the car here and then walk to the Hangang Park.

    As you can see, my family’s weekends are so healthy.

    We support the healthy life of citizens.
