Think of G-Star as Korea's Tokyo Game Show. This gaming expo, which I'm currently attending at the BEXCO in Busan, South Korea, runs through the weekend, and has already been pretty busy these last couple of workweek days. I'm sure it'll be nuts come tomorrow, when the weekend hits.

Seriously? This has to be a new record for the most booth girls ever at a gaming trade show. I can't imagine how much this many girls must have cost them, though I understand they have the money. Hats off, sirs. Hit the jump to see a quick video walk-by of the GREE gals.more
