Now, to cool off, the Korean presents the new Banpo Bridge at Seoul, newly renovated with dancing water fountains:

Fountains were installed as Seoul city's new project to upgrade the city's looks.

  1. "Quick kids roll up the windows and make sure that none of that water touches your skin."
    Not that I have any clue as to how that was created or installed, but I'm guessing the funds would have been better spent on a renewable energy source instead.

  2. Eh, the Korean likes it. Seoul really does need a makeover. It is on the verge of being a world-class city, and it has to look the part.

  3. It's a pretty neat idea. I wonder if there are other bridges around the world with the same "feature".

    They could put sensors on the sides of the bridge so the water would follow a passing vehicle, giving the sensation of a car splashing on an infinite puddle of water.

    Hmm, scrap that, with the traffic in Seoul, the fountain would just be on all the time.

    I miss that city.

  4. Apparently it's pulling water from the river below. I wonder if it sucks up some fishes too. Then this would be the world's largest fish cannon!

  5. 서울시의 노력은 인정하나, 보면 볼수록

    힘좋은 아이들 세워놓고 쉬~하는 것 같네요. 지하철에 한때 만들었던 분수 조형물처럼 이쁘게 다가오지 않는다는....

  6. I wish the video were cut a little more slowly. Too flashy for me. But, the fountains are great!
