Gocheok Sky Dome is Korea's first domed baseball stadium located in Gocheok-dong, Seoul. The stadium replaced Dongdaemun Baseball Stadium and opened on 15 September 2015. It has a capacity of about 20,000 people and is home to the Nexen Heroes baseball team. When the professional baseball season is over, the stadium can be hired as a concert venue and other events with capacity for around 22,000 spectators.
Last week, I went to the new Sky Dome to sketch several times .Though the stadium was relatively small compared to other countries' ones, I was impressed by the futuristic exterior and the fantastic atmosphere. I enjoyed the baseball game sketching some dynamic and colorful scenes in and out the stadium. It was very pleasant and exciting sketch time without worrying about weather conditions.
