  • [Cool Kiz On The Block] Daegu vs Arts and Sports Team First Bowling Game
  • [2013-05-22]
  • The first bowling away game of the Arts and Sports Team will be held in Daegu City during the seventh episode of KBS 2TV’s “Cool Kiz On The Block” that will air on May 21. 

    Daegu is a city where there is an amazing level of sports activities for the average people in their daily lives.  And people in Taegu have so great interest in bowling that bowling competitions are broadcast  live via Daegu Broadcasting.  Kang Ho-dong was discouraged when he asked a taxi driver in Daegu “Can you play bowling?” and the taxi driver replied that his average is as much as 160.  In Daegu where even an average taxi driver is a talented bowler, the art and sports team was shocked at the unexpected bowling capabilities of their rival team Wolsongdong United.



    The away game in Daegu also provided an opportunity to find great popularity of “Cool kiz on the block”. Over 300 citizens were waiting for the art and sports team in a long queue in the plaza of the bowling alley prior to the game.  Even after the game began at 8 p.m., citizens continued to enter into the alley, displaying a fever of excitement for bowling.   

    The fever continued throughout the game.  Citizen wearing T-shirts cheered both the Wolsongdong United and Art and Sports teams singing rooter’s songs. The enormous power of Wolsongdong United, of which members included a middle school physical educator, representative of a textile company, and a middle-aged woman at a shop in the bowling alley, foretell a rough road toward the fourth consecutive title by the Arts and Sports Team.   

    The production team for “Cool kiz on the block” said, “The Daegu game was meaningful as it was the first away game for the Arts and Sports Team and it was a buzzy festival both for athletes and citizens. We can understand why Daegu is called a mecca for life sports. We all were surprised at the energetic and active attitudes of the citizens toward the game.”

    Can the Arts and Sports Team garner one win against the Wolsongdong United?  Viewers are looking forward to seeing the rival game and the dramatic stage of bowling, a mental sports.
