It's 8PM and I'm at the Smoo office, Room 302. Not five minutes ago, I heard what sounded like the boom of a cannon outside my window. Not thunder-- it had the quality of an explosion of some sort. Anyone else in the downtown area hear this? It sure as hell wasn't a truck backfiring. Was I just hearing things?

8:02PM UPDATE-- HA! Fireworks at Hyochang Park Stadium, not far from where I'm working. Festivities. Move along... nothing to see here. With that first boom, I'd thought Seoul had experienced a gas explosion like the one in Taegu (Daegu?) in the 90s.
