I never understood the "free hugs" thing but I wouldn't say no to them :p Better than the ones around here at least... but I have to say that shot made me think. What the the motivation behind it all? Deliberately seeking attention yet in that shot it looks like they were trying not to be there at the same time (camera shy?).

I like the shot "Joy - Hooker Hill, Itaewon, Seoul". I think it could have been better if it was even more underexposed, so that the buildings were nothing more than black shapes providing negative space and framing the sky.
Well, the free hugs started to lighten up the day in the city where people wake up feeling dull and boring when they go to work and now it catch up and become normal. There was a high five campaign that does the same thing. I think it's pretty cool and cheer up people that need some 'love':)
