Great reflection and podcast guys. I would like to join sometime and need to become a partner and support you guys. My only added reflection from being in Korea for 17 years and in Itaewon about 70 times..is that it was a mass hysteria due to IG and a nearby BJ or VJ blogger in that area. I’m still unclear exactly what alley because the media had photos of bodies near the vape cigar shop which is a block away from the Hamilton Hotel. But the viral videos show the chaos and packed alley was in the Hamilton Hotel alley or the first right past the now..Footlocker. I would like to get some more details of that because the footage of the president inspection of the alley was the one leading to the Prost right small door or entrance up the hill. Then other media sources are saying it was the other alley. I think it was honestly 2 alleys. And the bodies were dragged or their last bit of energy took them to the bottom or top of the hill. It’s so tragic and left me numb for hours. But it’s ultimately the fact that SNS has created a quick hype frenzy and the Halloween concept and the fact there was so much alcohol with under age and others. 4 high schoolers died and 1 middle schooler besides the countries you all mentioned. A Japanese student too and supposedly some Americans.
