11th Street Shopping – RODE VideoMic


The folks over at Community Korea helped find expat ambassadors for 11th Street – an online market owned by SK Planet. I had no idea I would actually get it, so you could imagine the gleeful squealing that occurred when I received the official email congratulating me on my win. I let them know I was interested in buying a mic with the money, and lo and behold my prayers were and answered! WooooOOOoooo! So I ended up with the RØDE VideoMic. The best part is I was able to get the cheapest one at $138,000 WON. Here are the specs:
