  • 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.

    Hopeless S Koreans hate their own country S Korea.
    Almost all S Koreans don't want to reborn as a Korean.
    So S Koreans try to flee to overseas for changing their name and their nationality.
    But S Koreans faced the bitter reality or the true history and back to the tiny peninsula as a result.
    One sad S Koreans' story

    i'm turning 32 next year but with my knowledge, let me put it in a simple way.
    The reason why some old koreans (my parents or grandparents generation) seem racist and rude to foreigners.
    We look down on those old people but meanwhile we do so, i tried my best to understand them.

    >Born in 30s~50s.
    >Suffered from extreme poverty most of their lifetime (japan's colonization 10s~40s and then korean war 50~53 left nothing).
    >No clue about globalization. Rare to find foreigners in korea during 60s~mid 90s.
    >Some foreigners, esp, whites in korea including US Army gave some unpleasant feelings, like looking down on the old guys for not speaking English at all, often causing communication problem. Slowly offensive emotions against foreigners arose.

    Please, just ignore and try to understand them. most of them suffered from bad poverty and what they have had to do is just work but nothing else. no leisure, no relax, no free time. nothing but family&money, faily&money, and family&money. We young generation also say all of the elders had the worst time and we are in a totally different era and new world..

    and since japan surrendered in world war2, their education is like respecting people. respecting people. and I guess it's to cover up their cruelty and bad history they have done in the past. Now it works. who cares about their history and say they're rude? Their respect to others and the way they behave seem attractive to foreigners and i like that, too even if they have double face or whatever.

    Oh great. Now we'll have the "Best Korea" and Japanese nationalists arguing in this comment section for the next half decade lol. Honestly, outside of Tokyo, I have have a better impression of Japan overall. Seoul seems a bit bland after a while and the people are ruder even regardless of whther your in more rural areas or not. Cost of living isn't so expensive as Japan though, and they pffer better benefits for employees. Tokyo is bland too but in a different way, more like...sterile? It's way cleaner but everyone is a machine there. Feels a bit like VR but when you go to other major cities, Nagoya, Osaka, Kyoto, Hokkaido, Yokohama, you'll have a better impression of Japanese culture. Problem is that everyone thinks Tokyo is all of Japan pr Seoul is all of Korea. You need a broader range for comparison.

    I agree with many things, but
    IMHO,  for Korea,
    - I brought my own but I gave the cosmetics from Korea as a gift to my sister and she got a bad rash. Sorry sis.
    - transit, was not that good, I mean, the bus guy was rude enough.
    - KPOP, they all look the same. Kind of like they stamped their face using the same mold.
    - people: not friendly, rude.
    - One thing is that the streets are not clean.

    - for Japan,
    - yes, you gotta learn Japanese to live there.
    - yes, transit is high price. And very difficult for first timers. Hey, my Japanese friend from Osaka says that Tokyo's transit system is hell, like its too hard. Osaka is smaller so its easier.

    Yes I understand what u mean for racism. Actually wat u felt here in Korea isn't wrong. I've felt that as well. And there is a sad reason for that. When Japan became 'mordernized' it was directly by western however, for Korea it was forced modernization by Japan. Koreans generally didn't and don't have much chance to contact with foreigners. And there were many 'frictions' with western and Korea. Of course this can't be the right reason for racism but I wanted you to know that Korea considers our history very important and that effects us a lot.

    When korea was invaded by japan, japanese forced korean girls(over 12 ages) to become military sexual slavery about 100 years ago. They also did cut off their head, ears and use them to experiment for anotomy, who was alive. After that, three million people was died. But japanese government never have apologized sincerely and they have distorted the history, even if there's so many witnesses. I'm so sad by their attitude and so angry by china and japan distorting history of east asia.

    I would like to tell you about discrimination in Canada. I am a Japanese. I'm living in Canada now. I and my friends from different countries encountered discrimination  many times in Canada. One of my friends has cried because of it. I mean that there is discrimination all around the world. It's not only Japan and Korea. You must know it. I know that people from different countries who live in Japan complain about discrimination. However, some Canadian people are so racist same as those Japanese. Don't get me wrong. I understand your feeling and what you wanna say. Anyway, I decided that I will help people from different countries as much as possible after I go back to Japan.😁

    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 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.

    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 4 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.

  •  5 месяцев назад

    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.

    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.

      To Jenny Zhang. Good news for you. Since old time, Korea had no culture to be proud of. And even today, there is nothing in Korea. The latest news shows the data that South Korea's tourist industry has been in deficit since 2014 because no people travels to South Korea.According to the latest data, South Korea has been making more than one billion  dollars deficit every month. Lmao! No Japanese travels to Korea just like in the ancient time. There is nothing in Korea in the past and today. Everything there is in Korea today is fake culture fabricated recently. Even Chinese stop traveling to Korea. Lmao! All Asian countries are enemies for Korea. No country is on the side of Korea.  Japan is the hottest tourist destination. But tell your frined, "Never come to Japan". Koreans aren't welcomed in any country. http://www.excite.co.jp/News/chn_soc/20170716/Recordchina_20170716012.html

      To Jenny Zhang. It all wrong. Korea had no part in culture of Japan. Japan USED Korean peninsula as a corrodor to access to China. There was no culture to learn from Korea. Koreas was nothing but poor slave country rancked the lowest in Asia by China. All ancient documents in Japan prove that. Japan sent errands to learn Buddhist to China. You Koreans are all in fantasy that Korea could be great but actually just the lowest and no culture to learn for any country. Even today, Korea is... You know what I mean.

      +Masist Karen From an unbiased point of view, yes. Korea exported Chinese culture to Japan from Baekjae throughout history.

      To Becca C. Because you don't know anything about Koreans. That's why you can say that. Even Chinese people know Koreans are all crazy liars when it comes to history.  You must be Korean American.  I can tell. Your race is all lairs. This is reality. Nobody can deny it. Even Chinese people agree with Japanese on this.

    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.

    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 6 месяцев назад +1

      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?
