Watching World Cup 2014 in South Korea: A Foreigner's Viewers' Guide

Now don’t get me wrong, I love my Daejeon Citizen soccer (big win against Daegu the other day for all those wondering).

A few of the more popular convenient stores in Korea are Family Mart, Buy the Way, GS 25, CVS, and 7-11 (but its nothing like the ones back at home).
