Day 6 in South Korea was turning out to be one action-packed adventure after another! After arriving in Busan early in the morning and going on an epic street food tour in the afternoon, we had the time of our lives at a Korean baseball game! Come along with me and my travel buddy Sam as we cheer on the Lotte Giants!
We started our day at Sajik Baseball Stadium to have a full Korean baseball experience! We bought our tickets in advance, and it’s a good thing we did, because it was sold out by game time! You can go inside, buy a jersey, get some street food or alcohol, and then take your seats. We’d be sitting in General Admissions, where the wildest fans are!
The home team was the Busan Lotte Giants. We headed into the store, where there were lots of jerseys and hats. They were $91 each and I didn’t want to spend that much on a sport I’m not a huge fan of, so I got a hat for $40. I loved the colors and the logo!
After we got our hats, we grabbed some street food: dried squid! They also sell soju and water outside. The squid is cooked over a flame and stuffed into a cup. I took a bite of the squid but it was ridiculously tough and chewy. It was too tough and very rubbery!
Then I went with some Cass beer and went back to the squid. The tentacles were like chewing on a tire.
Then it was time to get to the game. We headed up to the second level and inside, they gave us jerseys for free! We headed up to Gate 57 on the third level. There was an amazing view of the city and we had great seats.
The crowd got super into it during the game! As you watch, you should look for a lady walking by selling beer. It was nice and light and the temperature had cooled down. It was the bottom of the 4th and the home team was killing it! The score was 5-0!
The fans around us were so fun and the atmosphere in the stadium was electric. We had never seen sports fans this passionate anywhere else in the world! 95% of the crowd was for the home team, so they were super loud when the Giants were at bat.
After a while, we went to get some food. I was hungry and thirsty. I needed a good beer! We found some Korean fried chicken, which is super greasy, and some tteok-bokki with fish cakes. It was a street food concession!
We posted up so we had a view of outside and enjoyed our food. The chicken was super spicy and less sweet than the one I’d had earlier. It was rich and juicy! Then I went with the tteok-bokki, which was so freaking delicious! The sauce was sweeter and creamy.
This food was outstanding! It kept amazing me! It was fresh, perfectly cooked, and contained no preservatives whatsoever. The tteok-bokki cost 4,000 won/$3.29 USD and 10,000 won/$8.23 USD for the chicken. So affordable, especially when compared to the prices of stadium food in the States.
After I went back to my seat, my buddy next to me gave me a bottle of soju, which is distilled sweet potato alcohol. It was strong!
By the time we got to the 7th inning, the entire crowd was singing. Then they passed out plastic bags, which everyone blew up and wore on their heads! We got more beer. This is what a baseball game is all about! Suddenly, it was a tie game! The home town gave up their lead!
What an experience this was! The game and food were both epic. We left during the ninth inning, but I highly recommend going to a baseball game in Korea! It’s an experience you will never forget!
