  • I really did not want to do this video, but now that I have lived in Japan for almost 1 year, I feel I can now have a solid opinion based on my experiences. PLEASE WATCH WITH AN OPEN MIND. I am not picking sides or saying which country is better. Every country has its pros and cons and these are just my list of pros and cons based on my real life experiences living in South Korea for 2 years and Japan for 1 year. This video has been consistently requested since I moved to Japan which is why I am now sharing it before I move out of Japan.

    i am korean, and i can see that u experienced really snobbish part of korea (which is really realistic) it's kinda fucked up these days, old generations are too conservative but still kind. on the other hand, young generations are rude af but open minded (i'm not) it's really sad mostly koreans don't expect foreigners to understand korean language lol

    Koreans think themselves as superior race in Asia, and are enormously proud. That's why they look down on other Asian peoples except for Chinese. This nationality is coming from Korean Confucianism teaching establishing hierarchy. The hierarchy in their religion means that Koreans respect only stronger, higher ranking person, and both parents. China has been a master country of Korea for about 2000 years. That's why Koreans can't say anything to Chinese, but do rude behaviors to other Asians.

    14:40 you see more historical places in Japan but not in Korea because Japanese had gone to Korea and destroyed them all .
    Thank you, you just burned some cultures had pain by Japanese for. If you knew Korea has more than 5000 years of history
    Now I am suddenly thinking,, Korea must have lost so much by whom with very polite and fulfilled with respect to others
    16:00 Korea also has something call OnChun you probably never gone to

    And I been in Korea few times in my life
    Every time I've gone to Korea
    Buildings and houses or roads seems to be rebuilted. Every time i go there
    My impression about Korea was they like change, changes for good and better
    For the better and good they work very hard to be unique at the same time they keep what they are

    And Canadian delivery services cafe and food is hell and there isnt anything like a real sauna. And most of times people are rude in public and racist
    How I know all this??? Cause I am proudly Canadian living in Canada.

      Koreans tell a lie easily.
      Koreans always blame others.
      Koreans try to escape their responsibility.
      Koreans run away in the end when they face the inconvenient situation.
      Above Koreans' personality are for protecting themselves.
      Keep on your mind.

    Koreans do not like mix especially older generation. You might feel ignored many times. That doesn't mean they don't like you. You have to respect people because they are older than you which means older people have more wisdom. That is Korean culture that you have to figure out. If you can show that you speak Korean well, they will like you. And sushi, you have to know certain place to go to enjoy the sushi. Koreans just go to market and buy live fish so they eat it as sashimi( sushi and sashimi are not samething). Koreans do not eat sushi many times. And there are many nice temples and mountains you can visit. When I was young and living in Busan, I visit a temples near by. Some places they have koi pond and nice view. And I don't believe in Buddhism. It is not tourist attraction but very nice place to visit. They are everywhere. And Visit Busan. The city has more interesting buildings now. Make sure to bring a Korean friends. It is not easy to go around without Korean speaking friends.

    Negatives of Korea from a Korean-American:
    - No trash bins on streets
    - Men spit and smoke a lot on streets
    - Sewage smell coming out from manholes
    - Public restrooms lack toilette paper and soap
    - People don't hold doors
    - People do not wait for all to exit (i.e. subway) before entering

    I hate Korea so much that I will be visiting there yet again this year for like the 100th time! XD

    During my visit to Korea I could not help but think about how it is so much worse than Japan. It has its own perks but Japan is sill much more satisfying on so many levels - cleaner, friendlier, nicer. People are much less superficial than Koreans, their music is better, they are less uniform, more polite, etc. Japan vs. Korea is like comparing Quality vs. Trend. I do like Korean fashion more though.

    Holy crap. The video started off with positives for Korea but ended with some terrible stuff that makes one wonder why you're living in Korea. Jeesus!

    If you like the feeling/passion of Koreans then you're going to get the bad as well. If you prefer the "polite" face of the Japanese, then it's going to be superficial (as you pointed out). Make up your mind.

  • Octavus5
    Octavus5 2 месяца назад

    Less "historical stuff" in Korea is not because they're a newer country. (Have you studied any Korean history?) Korea is older than Japan. However, during the Korean War, Americans flattened EVERYTHING. More bomb tonnage was dropped on Korea than in the entire Pacific theater in WWII. It's a miracle there are any historical sites left at all.

    One of the reasons Koreans have an historical animosity towards foreigners is because of the period of Japanese colonial occupation as well as US military involvement in the past and up to the present. This is not "culture". It's historical experience.

    When foreigners kill up to a 1/3 of your population, how would you feel?

    During WWII, a little over 2M Japanese died. Guess how many Koreans died during the Korean War? 3M! As I said, American forces killed civilians and carpet bombed everything, including dams, canals and other civilian infrastructure, which are war crimes.

    Now, you may presume that the Korean War was caused by the Korean people. Not really. The Korean War is a direct outcome of division that the Americans imposed on the Korean people after WWII. They came in the guise of liberators but divided the country between North and South in order to further their geopolitical interests.

    I am Japanese. I could not understand what you are talking about because I am not good at English, is it that you like Korean better than Japan? If so, please let me say one thing. I went on a trip to Korea two years ago. And I took a taxi to get on it, but I was told that "You are a Japanese?" From a taxi driver, so saying "Yes, that's right." I thought why I need to hear such a thing ... I arrived at my destination. So, when I tried to pay the amount, I was asked for money of nearly 80 dollars, although I moved only a little under 2 kilometers. Is this amount reasonable? At this moment I tried to ask "Is it because it is a Japanese?", But I did not say it was stupid to say even that word. I will not go to Korea anymore. It is fine if you do not like Japan, please do not talk to people in other countries.

    The thing I find funny is that people from America expect other countries to have English for their conveniences. But if you travel to America or Canada, there's no way you can get around with not knowing any English in comparison to a lot of other countries, the signs usually have English on it and if people know you don't understand their language they'll at least try to communicate with you with the amount of English they know. In America if you try to speak other language when you shop or dine, nobody will gives a dame about you.

    Is it really racism though? I lived in Asia many years and been in Korea several times. Been rejected entry to bars etc.. But I'm pretty sure its not cause of my race. I suspect its because i don''t speak fluent korean and not behaving like a local Korean. More of a cultural issue than a race issue, I think. But that's just my thinking.. I found the whole experience funny rather than anything else.

It's something called public mind "Tatemae" and privatemind "Honne" .... that kindness and respect is basically to keep harmony in society and make sure that everyone around you is comfortable....while true feelings are only expressed at home or with really close friends... Koreans care less about it i guess.

    I am glad that there are many foreigners who appreciate South Korea higher than Japan.
    Japan is a country which has developed by imitating Korean culture historically.
    They just civilized early using the Korean War.
    South Korea has started economic development late but currently swallowing most of Japan industries.
    While Japan is stuck at $30,000++ gdp per capita, South Korea is still growing at over
    $30,000 this year.
    The Japanese are not able to develop further because the brain is contaminated with radioactivity.

    • Yamada Taro
      Yamada Taro 15 дней назад

      To Becca. So you are brainwashed by liar Koreans. Pitty. Japan follows the EVIDENCE and DOCUMENTS whereas Korea follows NO evidence (or they fabricate documents shamelessly). Ancient China and Japan had a lot of documents left. When comparing the ancient documents from China and Japan, so much similarities are found. Both China and Japanese ancient documents say, "Korea was so low. And Koreans were adoring developed country Japan and frequently visited to learn culture from Japan" This is what was written in Chinese ancient document. And the same thing was written in ancient Japanese documents too.If you are American, you don't know nothing about Koreans. All Koreans are Evil and liars. Even before learning fabricated Korean based history of Asia, you need to know about Koreans. Koreans are not humans. Korea was influenced by Japan. There is a firm document. In Southern part of Korea, there is a tomb which shape is the same as Japanese Emperor's tomb. But the era which was created was new and the size was small so it was obvious the region was colony of Japan. And there are tons of evidences to prove that too. But Korea doesn't want to admit it so they fabricate history and spreading all over the world but it is not convincing at all because there is no firm evidence.For Koreans, history is all fabrications and fantasy.  All Koreans are cheaters. Look at Korean hitory doramas! Everything is 100% fake! And if you ever visited South Korea, you will find so called "traditional Korean houses" but those houses were recently built based on fantasy so they are like movie set but foreigners are stupid enough to buy Koreans lie. Lmao!

    • Becca C

      Right so the Japanese history books tell you their version of what they think happened too. A lot of history was lost because it was destroyed by the war. Same with Japanese history but there are still some areas that are rich with culture, like Korea. I'm American with both Japanese and Korean roots, not that it matters. It's ok. You can go on believing nothing was influenced by other countries as Korea, Japan and China all traded together deep in the past. Again have a good day~

      Lmao! All you said is usula psychopath Korean! Lmao! All based on fantasy with no evidences. Japan has all evidences and documents from the ancient time. Korea has none. Lmao!Celadon art is shit and lowest one. Ceramic technology was imported from Chna way long time ago and Japanese Bakufu (which is governer) developed very high quality ceramic arts. But the technology was classified by Bakufu so Sourthern part of Japan (close to Korea) asked Koreans if they want to make money producing the lowest Korean quality ceramic. And as they are the same today, Koreans came to Japan and produced the low quality ceramic. That's all. Even today, Korean ceramic is known as the low quality. Painting and sculputres and everything has nothing to do with Korea. Sorry. Korean fantasy is limited with in Korean peninsula. People are sane.  Koreans are insane and crazy. Lmao! Knives and Iron and everything has nothing to do with Korea. Korea was so incompetent that they didn't have any technoloy so there was nothing to learn from Korea for Japan. All historians say, "Korea was Corridor to China because there ws nothing in Korea other than human shit all over the streets. If you see pictures of your ancesters, you will understand how low Koreans were. Would you like to see?The biggest joke Koreans have is "Korea has 5,000 years history!" but with no evidence. Lmao!  I always say "So you mean, Korea was slave to China for 5,000 year? Being slaves for 2,000 years was not enogh for Koreans?" Lmao!

    As a South Korean myself, I've recognised some racisms in my country as well, and I do agree with your opinion that it might be because Korea is new to tourism. Although anti-racism activities are gradually growing here, it's still far behind compared to what it's supposed to be like. I feel terribly sorry for all the foreigners who got offended by racism in S. Korea

    In another perspective, our culture has changed rapidly through each of generations. To young generations (including myself), we consider that 'extreme' kindness is rather a excuse than politeness, and older generations thinks in the opposite way.

    And oh dear... the pollutions...

    We LITERALLY DETEST THE POLLUTIONS. I've spent some time in Britain and I sometimes feel that weather's even worse here.😱😱

    Plus, we do feel the necessity of 'personal space', but due to the popularity density, we are kinda desensitised of knocking each over in streets.

    Oh well, I think I just wrote too many words solely depending on my 'personal' opinion. But I really hope that my comment here give a better understanding of Korean culture to foreigners😊✌️

    I continue to see more and more videos of "Korea vs. Japan" from Westerners and I can't help but make the conclusion that they're culturally incompetent. While I understand that people are entitled to their opinions, most seem to visit Korea "expecting" the country, its culture and people to be what THEY want it to be. Visiting a foreign country (101) is to live with an open mind and be UNDERSTANDING. Figure out why the people act the way they do and for what reason. From my personal experiences and being Asian myself, I tend to see why certain groups (Koreans, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Filipinos, etc.) act the way they do - they all have very distinctive characteristics and a lot of it is based on their respective cultural and historical backgrounds. I am half Korean half Japanese and have experienced very similar yet very different ways of life in both Korea and Japan. Now, what is "negative" or "bad" is all subjective but Westerners simply judge Koreans or Japanese based on what they are used to in their own countries. The more and more I see comments on these type of videos, I see lots of Westerners being very critical of Korea yet very praising of Japan. Again, I respect everyone's opinions but noticed that they're simply judging Koreans (by generalizing of course...) at face value. As a Korean, I'll explain why Korea may not be the most "accepting" of foreigners, one clear answer: HISTORY. Korea is highly known to most historians and Westerners as the hermit kingdom, simply because during the reign of the Joseon dynasty, Korea was a very secluded country (can't blame them since they are small in size compared to big superpowers like China and Japan) and did not open its doors to foreign trade, diplomats, etc. The country eventually had to by coercion as it was invaded by China and Japan through its history. Korea was basically late to the game when it came to globalization and so the people have not learned to assimilate to these changes (ESPECIALLY the older generations). Korea's culture is heavily based on Confucian ideals, which is a very, very different way of life for foreigners to understand. Overall, it's going to take time for Korea and Koreans to be more open but one CANNOT expect Korea to change its culture and way of life just for foreigners. That's just flat out stupid right?

    As a side note, I get very surprised by other Asians who comment so negatively against Koreans or Japanese when we all coexist in Asia and as people of the same continent, have similar characteristics too. I would presume that Asians, if anything, would be more understanding of each other's cultures than Westerners. Just a thought.

    Aside from the cons, why are you leaving Japan? I guess I never got a video or a understanding of that, I think some people will deftly miss you in Japan! What do you like about Australia up to this point now that you're there?

    i always feel funny about 'korea vs japan' videos like this. they always have one thing in common. people who don't have a specific job, made only low quality contents like fashion blogs and food blogs, and can't get deeply involved in the society, always describe japan dramatically good and praise it. this is so easy to explain. because japan's culture-selling industry is really big, and their tourism system and public services are perfectly aim to attract foreign tourists. so people easily get blinded. (and if you want, you can settle in this position as a foreign-tourist for a rest of your life in japan. because there are many good foreigner policies. you can spend your whole time with chasing stuff like anime, like rachal&jun.) this kind of people are being in that country and spend whole time only as 'consumer', not a producer. they enjoying buying their cultural production, but they don't watch or participate in it's specific procedure, just experience output of it's society. they used to seller-buyer relationships of japan(which mostly unilaterally makes them feel good) and entire thinking skills about human relationship of other country are stuck in that structure. they judge and compare humanity or even their ethnicity, with other country. even if they only experience expertly friendly type of people in service industry. i think this is why there are so many korea vs japan viedos. and the quality of the contents produced by foreigners is different too. koreans are very popular with '올리버 쌤', '박개대','영국남자', who is experimenting, analyzing and explaining cultural differences. Japan, on the other hand, they love yotubers like 'simon & martina', 'taylor r', 'rachal & jun'. they are the perfect examples of the 'consumers' what i said. (sorry for my bad english, i might grammatically wrong)

      brokenStuff29 I see. So Japan is okay with youtubers like Simon and Martina but Korea isn't because their content isn't productive enough, right? I wonder why that it. I am interested in both Korea and Japan so I've been watching videos like these to help my decision on which one to choose.

    • brokenStuff29
      brokenStuff29 4 месяца назад

      yes they were making contents about korea and consume korean culture too, but they were not popular towards native korean people who live in korea for their whole life because of that. they get most of their views from foreigners who interested in korean culture, or korean americans who wants to feel cultural power or pride about their home country.
      these days korean miniater of culture, sports and tourism which called '문화체육관광부' invest huge money to encourage travel agents and earn more foreign currency by attract tourists, so they make a contract with youtubers and advertise korean tourist attractions. but simon martina failed to appeal korean minister's (investor) attention. they even open contents-making company in hongdae, but they couldn't attract interest of people. It's because of their characteristic of contents is not very productive and they are not that popular in korea. unlike '영국남자korean engliah guy'. they sponsered by korean government minister. simon&martina are not popular maybe because they can't even speak korean properly and live extremely limited circle of space in korea. they just stuck in hongdae which is full of korean restaurants and shops and meet only hongdae people, and judge and analyze korean culture like they are professionals or something. even if their lacks of knowledge or backgrounds about culture which easily inferred from situation they are in are too obvious for native koreans like me.

      Interesting. So you think Japan sells it's culture better than Korea? And I'm just curious as to why you think Simon and Martina are just consumers in Japan. Didn't they do the same thing when they lived in korea?

    It really depends on a person what u take the most important or seriously bc everyone is after different stuff. like foods, jobs or whatever. Also what's hard is when it comes to personality or the way people there treat you, you can't help it bc personalitly or the way people treat you is all based on where they're born and How they're raised. Let's say According to my experience Korean people are more patriotic. I personaly dont really like that, but seems like they're educated like or told something like that by their parents, teachers, histories or whatever. So i think it's really a big deal if you find people there rude or unrespectful.

    日本語訳は下にあります↓This video has a very clear message to the whole world that good about South Korea is their cheap cosmetic products. And the bad part of South Korea is all Korean people. Coincidentally all Chinese, Japanese, East Asians have the same opinion about South Korea. Lmao!  If only there were no Korean people living in South Korea, South Korea would be a way better country. That's the conclusion of all people who get to know about Koreans. Lmao!彼女のビデオは、【韓国の良いところを強いて挙げるなら、安っぽい化粧とK-POPがあるだけ。 韓国の欠点は、全ての韓国人。 人間として韓国人は世界最低!】というハッキリとしたメッセージです。www 我々日本人全員と同じ結論に至ってるところが笑えますね!www

    Cosmetic is the reason why I would love to live in South Korea. Japan has cool cosmetic stores but they are so expensive. I can't afford them. As a foreigner I can't even find a good moisturiser for my skin.
    As a music lover I love Japan. They have great musicians, producers and dancers but the problem is that most of them are not available online. Only solution to buy some songs and music videos is to buy CD/DVD (Bands like Arashi don't sell their songs on iTunes and many J-pop CDs are not allowed sell outside Japan) Japanese CD stores are huge, you can find K-pop, J-pop, French, American, deluxe edition of American albums, everything! Japanese concerts are mind blowing. You can enjoy that type of concert outside Japan.
    I have Korean friends but it's hard to make friends in Japan (for me at least). Sometimes it hard to understand a Japanese person in front of you. Every county is racist but as a brown girl I found Korea more racist (not so racist but I don't like someone staring at me).
    Language is one problem in Japan.

    I always wonder why foreign YouTubers living in Japan or Korea (non-Japanese or non-Korean) often touch this sensitive topic. I love watching their movies cuz it's fun and good to know how foreigners think of my own country, but I think they shouldn't make this kind of videos without proper knowledges even if they are requested. It just fan the flame of conflicts between both sides of such crazy Internet-living extremists down below. It sometimes makes me feel they are too greedy to earn views. If you felt you didn't want to make this video, you're right Bii. I guess the issues between Japan and Korea is more serious topic than you reckon. By comparing Japan and Korea and deciding which is better, some people will definitely be unhappy about it even if you have no offence... But anyway I like your videos, so let me give you advice as a fan, if you want to make this kind of videos, make it more cheerful, don't be too serious like you did in this video, just try to lighten up the both sides of viewers:)

Lmao! And he says "I can speak better English! Your English is awkward!" but he is adamantly refusing to speak English even at this points. Lmao! He doesn't want to give comment anything about Korean immigrants in English. Come on! Fake Japanese of Korean immigrant "Tanaka"!

    Wait so Korea is very polluted? First time hearing this. I've heard Korean are very blunt which kind of reflects on why most Koreans have low self esteem ,as well as the influence of hierarchy, and the beauty standards.
