In South Korea, Guilty Gear Xrd gets the eSports treatment - high-level match footage, production values

We know that Tekken is a pretty big deal in South Korea. But that's not the only fighting game that gets played in South Korea. Apparently, Arc System Works's Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- is quite popular over there too.

Or at least, that's the vibe I'm getting from watching episode one of this new video series on eSports TV's YouTube channel, which features some of Korea's best Guilty Gear players (I think), duking it out for in a... some kind of competitive format.

Because the entire video is in Korean, I can't make any sense as to what's actually going on.

But there are Korean showgirls who walk up to the stage holding giant placards that conveniently tell you how many games have been played in the current set, what appears to be high-level Guilty Gear Xrd footage, and metal music. So you should watch this.
