Lucy goes to the EXO’rDIUM [dot]!

I don’t think I even mentioned that I was going to Seoul, but anyway here is a post about my trip. I apologise, it’s very long with a lot of pictures.

I went as part of SM’s global package, so as always, if you have any questions about it, feel free to ask whatever you like.

If you want to read the posts from my previous EXO global package trips, I’ll link them below:

It’s Gettin’ Hot In Here: ‘China Starts Televising The Sunrise On Giant TV Screens Because Beijing Is So Clouded In Smog’

From The Daily Mail:

The smog has become so thick in Beijing that the city’s natural light-starved masses have begun flocking to huge digital commercial television screens across the city to observe virtual sunrises.

The futuristic screens installed in the Chinese capital usually advertize tourist destinations, but as the season’s first wave of extremely dangerous smog hit - residents donned air masks and left their homes to watch the only place where the sun would hail over the horizon that morning.

Serious air pollution plagues most major Chinese cities, where environmental protection has been long sacrificed for the sake of economic development. 

Coal burning and car emissions are major sources of pollution. In recent years, China has beefed up regulations and pledged financial resources to fight pollution.

What do you hope people will take away from this movie?

We want people to rediscover the fascination for science and discovery that we felt as kids, growing up and watching the show. Bill’s fans are adults now and they’re able to put the knowledge gleaned from the show to practical use. We face HUGE challenges on our pale blue dot (global warming, stressed ecosystems, treatable diseases, etc.) and science and technology can help us better understand the problems (and even solve them!). Also, we want this film to be fun and funny, just like the show. Bill’s life is inspirational and we want viewers to hang out with a funny, smart and charming guy for 90-100 minutes of fun. 

– Jason & David, filmmakers
