2013 is nearly done and itís been a fun and exciting for gaming. In my current home, Korea gaming is becoming more and more popular by the day and Korea is full of interesting gaming events, if you check each cities events calendar closely enough. Here are a couple more fun gaming events I stumbled upon this year.

I will readily admit I have never played a Starcraft game in my life but a buddy dragged me along to a couple of Ďprofessionalí gaming events in Seoul. I will admit that all of the pomp and circumstance of the events blew me away, they are like gamingís equivalent of a football game and Iíd recommend anyone check one of these events out if they can, out of morbid curiosity at the very least. (The exact event I attended was the WCS Season 1 Final, also attended the GSL Season 4 Final in 2012)







Secondly, G-Star, in Busan, is an up-and-coming gaming event. Originally starting as a more recruitment-oriented event years ago, the event organisers have aspirations of the event growing into a fully-blown, Tokyo-Game-Show-Style event in the future. Will it happen? I donít know, but it did spawn some awesome DOTA 2 cosplayers for your viewing enjoyment.




Next, Ďe-Funí was an exceedingly low-key indie gaming art event hosted in Daegu. I got the chance to see a couple of rooms of video game art. As this was in Korea there was a lot of Maple Story art adorning the walls. The event just reaffirmed my suspicions that Korean gamers are primarily obsessed with home-grown smartphone games.






Finally, although not gaming related, one of the most enjoyable events to attend in Korea is the bi-monthly ĎComic Worldí. Hosted in both Seoul and Busan itís a beacon for manwha (Korean comic books) artists to set up a stall and sell their stuff and the events always attract a huge crowd of cosplayers.









I donít suppose anybody on Destructoid speaks Korean?



Koreaís version of Saturday Night Live aired a couple of Grand Theft Auto 5 parodies in October and November. Korean humour is slapstick by nature; Koreanís love to see silly facial expressions and ridiculous gestures and I think SNL did a great job emulating GTA. They've all been posted on Youtube so I thought I'd compile and share them for anybody that might speak Korean or wants a good laugh.



Grand Theft Autumn


What better place to share than on Destructoid? Hmm, possibly on a Korean messageboard perhaps but nevertheless enjoy some Korean humour.
Here is Grand Theft Autumn Joseon dynasty edition.



Here is Grand Theft Autumn Japanese Imperialism edition.
