Watch: Eric Nam Dresses Up As Pikachu To Catch ‘Em All In Sokcho

Eric Nam has taken the chance to do what plenty of people in Korea are dreaming of, and headed to Sokcho to play Pokemon Go!

The latest craze Pokemon Go is currently unavailable in most of South Korea, due to government security laws that restrict Google’s mapping abilities. However, it does work in the small town of Sokcho on the country’s east coast, leading crowds to flock there over the past week to play the game.

On July 18, Eric Nam broadcasted live to his Facebook while wearing a Pikachu onesie to let fans know that he’d traveled to Sokcho to get in on the fun. He sounds a bit out of breath as he introduces himself as Pikachu, and says that although he’s in the middle of promoting his new song “Can’t Help Myself,” he “couldn’t help himself” and had to come to try catching some pokemon on his day off.

He also shared a cute video to Instagram of himself doing his dance from “Can’t Help Myself” in the Pikachu onesie. Check it out below!
