Music and Dancing to Celebrate the Opening of a New Supermarket

They just opened up a new Home Mart supermarket in the basement of the building at my office. I'm really happy about this because it means I don't have to go so far to get food to eat during working hours. I suspect they don't have the demographics in the neighborhood to maintain a store this big over the long-run, but I hope they are successful.


Anyway, it seems that every Korean retail store hires dancers on opening day to attract attention from passersby. Last year it was dancing girls in miniskirts for the singing room across the road; this time it was a couple guys dressed up as clowns in the style of Korea of the 60s and 70s.
