Shoot Me If You Can

In Taeyoon Choi catch-me game “Shoot Me If You Can”, participants go with camera phones through Seoul while wearing prominently colored stickers, with an unique number on it, on the upper body front and rear. Players on a team are trying to photograph the participants of the competing teams, before they are picked up(photgraphed) by opponents. The team which shot all enemies first wins.
