PUBG matches up with K-pop idols at an e-sports cafe in Shin-Okubo!
In Korea, the culture of gaming is much more popular than in Japan, and gamers gather at what is called a “manga cafe” in Japan or “PC방” in Korea, where they stay all day long or live for days at a time, immersed in their games.
In English, it’s “PCroom” or “internet cafe”.
You’ve seen videos of your favorite idols and rappers playing games on their computers, right?
The annual Ayukdae (Idol Athletics Competition) in Korea has added a new event, e-sports!
The game being played there was PUBG!
You can’t play on a normal home PC because it doesn’t have enough specs.
