Japan or Korea: Did We Make the Right Choice?

  • Опубликовано: 15 дек 2016
  • It's been one year since we announced that we were moving to Japan. Now that we look back, did we make the right decision? Do we miss Korea? Where's better for us to live, Korea or Japan?
    We're talking about this a bit more, including our great fear in making this video, in our blog post. Read more if you're up for it.

    For those of you who have seen the anger of the comment section, please don't think of that as a representation of Korea. The angry people here shouldn't scare you away from Korea, shouldn't make you think less of Korean people. This reaction isn't commonplace, nor is it representative of what all Korean people think. A big part of it is because our video was shared on some dark and angry Korean websites, which brought out the worst in the visiting commenters. So don't worry! This is a special kind of anger :)

    What they say can not be all there is. It is just a different culture. It is sad that many people who watch this video may misunderstand Korea. I am Korean and have lived in Japan. What they are saying is obviously Japan's strong point. But there is a merit that Korea has that is different from that. And I love it so much. They seem to have left Korea too lightly. I don't see any understanding of Koreans.
    For example, a restaurant clerk says he laughs when he speaks, but it is not because he looks funny or hates it. Most Koreans are nervous because they are shy and cannot see foreigners as much as Japan. After the same period, the idea is expected to change.

    Being Korean who are trying to open up my mind and embrace all perspectives, I do understand what you guys are saying. Sometimes i even get embrassed too when i’m with my foreign friend. Of course as they mentioned, it’s their view, not all of Korea (or Korean) are the same as they described. But it seems quite obvious that for Korean, there’s still a space to move on.
    Don’t get too scared away from those anger comments, people! As all countries do have, there a online community which gather such losers and infect bad feelings to others. I can see many of bad comments are from there.

    i'm Korean and Koreans were taught and almost brainwashed since young to grow baseless hate against Japan. of course any video or article that compares both countries and conclude Japan as a better country would get a massive hate and craziness of all the idiots from Korea. but there is a hope, these days whenever a translated "threads" about this video is uploaded on Korean communities, more than half of Korean comments are actually agreeing with you and the opinions of this video. it's the other minority of Koreans who gets angry and comes here to attack you with their idiocy. i don't mean to defend idiot Koreans, but just letting you know that not all Koreans hate you.

    I’ve been to both Japan and Korea. In terms of natural scenery, Japan is far superior. Japanese food is more delicious than in Korea. Frankly speaking as a foreigner mostly you could only eat korean BBQ and bulgogi. Side dishes will be thrown away cause most of foreigners includes me only try once. While in Japan there are plenty of options we could eat sushi, ramen, udon, kobe beef, cheesecake and many more. Taste wise, Japanese food wins foreigners’ heart.
    People is very polite in Japan. Even though they can not speak English, they are more than happy to help strangers. Whereas in Korea, I got evicted two times for staying after meal in empty restaurant. The way Koreans speak is very rude compared to Japanese’s friendliness.
    Riding a bus in Korea is very unpleasant, the drivers drive recklessly like he wants to kill passengers or some sort. I live in Singapore, that kind of driving will surely put you into serious trouble.
    Shopping in Japan is heaven! They have all these cute stuff that surely will entice any passerby. Not to mention UNIQLO that is the king of fashion, simple design high quality product at affordable price.
    Good thing about Korea is they are way cheaper than Japan. Accommodation is affordable. Rooms in Japan is very tight, small, packed and expensive. Street food is somewhat affordable but compares to Korea its more expensive. Overall if you have tight budget you should experience Korea.
    Same with them my experience in Korea is not impressive. Again this is personal experience that shapes my opinion. Everyone has their own sayings about Korea or Japan. Me as a tourist favors Japan than Korea. Not a slight thought of me going back to Korea cross my mind to be honest. If you have been to Japan before Korea, then visiting Korea will be just “hmmm okay..” feeling and in just 3 days you will get bored.

    Simon and Martina's videos have gotten me to try so many Korean things, and learn so much fun stuff about the country and its people. I now have a goal to visit there! And I appreciate Simon and Martina's openness and honesty about the things that were difficult for them there. It helps give a realistic understanding that, just like any country, there are challenges as well as benefits.

I see and understand where you guys are coming from and everyone will have different experience when they go to another country. But glad you are enjoying Japan. And this doesn't change my mind about going to Korea. I'm also trying to learn korean but also want to learn Japanese after learning korean. But I still want to visit both places one day. You guys stay strong and always rember the good will always out way the bad! Love you guys keep it up you guys are amazing!

    I am relatively new in South Korea, having moved here just 8 months ago and what's funny is the complaints about Korea here are definitely ones I have heard before from expats in Korea, but few of them have I personally experienced in any significant way. For example, it has been pretty rare that someone looked terrified to deal with me in a restaurant or cafe or shop. Also, no one has ever laughed at my Korean and I don't speak Korean really at all, just enough to order food. Also, I have met some extremely warm and friendly Koreans. Granted, I don't talk to my neighbors, but I never see them (I am in a small apartment building). So, I guess the truth is each person's reality and experience can vary greatly from person to person. The driving and parking is really crazy though.

    Maybe I missed it but did they mention which city they are living in now that they are in Japan? If they are comparing Tokyo and Seoul I can understand but it wouldn't be a fair comparison if they live in small Japanese prefecture and are comparing it to Korea's most populated city. Also I live in S. Korea now and love to visit Japan often, I think they're both great!

    My experiences were no better. My friend and I were sent to Seoul for a year by our company, as Southeast Asian we were treated pretty badly by people there. I was still lucky since my skin is lighter and and I do look like East Asian but my friend was dark-skinned and Muslim. People would stare at her blatantly and said rude things to her. The living environment was bad, the city was so noisy we could hardly sleep, often time I was forced to join their drinking party (my friend told them her religion didn't allow her to drink), the sexual harassment was real and yes Korean were really bad at driving. I went to Japan for 1 month trip, and Holy! I would love to go back!
    I've been to a lot of countries and South Korea ranked in Top 3 Countries I Won't Return Again Ever

    I think that S&M are very democratic about this matter and they are talking about their own experience and as they say: Everybody makes his/her own experience. I have never been in Japan because ... idk ... it's very expensive and the über-polite japanese seems a little bit fake to me. I was 6 times in Korea for vacation and I just love Korea - BUT I never lived and worked there and I know from many friends who actaully live in Korea that the korean immigration system can be a total bi**h. I never had problems with sleeping (but I didn't had that in Midtown NYC neither^^) and I'm often in egypt, so when you want to see drivers worst than koreans go to egypt XD
    If Japan makes Martina & Simon happy then what the hell - let them be happy. Maybe in 2 years they'll move to Laos and love it there too. Everybody has to have a place you call home, a place you love to go to and everybody has to find his inner peace. Some people love Japan, some hate it - people are different and so are their experience. I just know I still love Martina & Simon!

    I currently live in Korea, in a city, but not one of the major cities. The funny thing is people from different regions in Korea are so different. People in my city are generally so kind here. I've had taxi drivers offer me their umbrella because it was raining ourside. I've experienced so many random acts of kindness here, than I had my whole life prior to this. I do notice people from my region are much nicer than cities like Seoul. I will really miss the place when I leave. I love my city/Korea so much. ;_; Anyways I definitely recommend the Jeolla region more than any other because of the wonderful people here. 🖒🖒

    당신들이 한국에서 겪었던 안좋은 일들과 단점들 공감하기도 하고 부끄러운점도 있지만 당신들이 8년간 한국에서 살았다는건 분명 좋은점도 있었기 때문이라고 생각합니다. 어느니라든 장점이 있으면 단점도 있고 좋은사람이 있으면 나쁜 사람도 있습니다. 이 말은 당신들이 좋다, 행복하다고 찬양하는 일본에서도 상처받을 수도 있다는 말입니다. 나는 단지 당신들이 한국의 장점들은 무시하고 한국에서의 삶은 불행한 반면 일본에서는 너무 행복하다. 는 식으로 한국과 일본을 이간질시키는 것 같아서 매우 실망스럽고 속상합니다.
    어느 나라든 잘 맞는 곳이 있을 수 있습니다. 어디서 살든 당신들 자유지만 당신들에게 어느 나라가 우월하다고 평가내릴 자격은 없습니다.

    I think it depends on the person.
    I really like to study English and like foreign friends.
    When I went to Seoul by bus, I said the person next to me something like greeting, and just tried to talk a bit. But she said no thanks. I dont see foreigners like stranger because I really like foreigners.
    I think people who are native english speakers never learn korean because many korean can speak English and not uncomportable to live in Korea. Acutally, i cant agree with you guys. There are many foreigners who think no need to learn korean and speaking just English english english. I just want to ask you that they even saw u guys like stranges even thought you spoke in korean?
    I think it depends on the person. Its hard to judge.

    Idk why some people are so triggered. Simon and Martina did say that their experience in both countries may be different from other people’s experiences 🤦‍♀️
    Anyway, I kinda see why they think of Korea that way. I have friends who live in Japan and once lived in Korea. They moved there at the same time and it was funny to see that the ones in Japan were enjoying their lives there, while the ones in Korea regretted moving to Korea. My friends are muslims and the girls wear hijabs, and they’re often looked at as if they’re some kind of aliens. They’re often cursed at especially by the older people and those people didn’t event know that my friends were actually fluent in Korean. They’re ostracised at the university and their work place just because of different religion and physical appearance. Hence we always have the thought that Japanese are actually more open to people of different background etc than Koreans

    Koreans don't need to be butthurtted by these brainwashed junkies. Everybody is entitled to their opinion so if it makes you feel better bashing Korea, go ahead. If you would feel unwelcomed in Korea, express your anger on the net and you can choose not to come. Plain and simple. I am sure though most of you losers can even afford to travel and believe what's available on the internet.
    And for white people, I can guarantee japan will be way much better than Korea to live in. So why not choose japan for a teaching job? Good luck!

You don't speak japanese but you judge how japanese are like this like that. I don't think you experience Koreans well, all Your judge are from your small experience. To judge it you have to speak korean and japanese well and have quite many korean japnese friends. Language is most important, If you wanna talk about their culture, how can you assure even you can not have conversation with them? do you think that makes sense? don't assure many things easily

I love their manner to foreigner so far, eventhough they cant speak english, they were willing to help you, even in a rural area. Some kids and elder started a convo with me, they were curious about my country and want to practice their english. And some of them share their aboard travel experiences too. There was lot of things to do when visit Japan. People really polite in there and they really dont care about our business. Meanwhile i never been went to Korea, maybe someday. I dont have an interest yet eventhough i listen to some kpops. So far i choose to attend my favorite Kpop boyband concert in Japan, coz i got more fan services and the artists seems more relax and didnt afraid to do silly things bcoz people wont judge them. It based on my observation when there was fan streaming from Seoul. I prefer calm and noise less environment too. I hate when people yelling on me or talking in high pitch, so a bit worry i will get stress easily when i travel to Korea. But i willing to try a visit to Korea too

    One thing I realized about Korean people is that they have extreme anxiety. I did too until a friend of mine said "Why are you obsessing over a phone call to pizza hut? Just listen to what they have to say. Why do you always have to anticipate what they are going to say? That's why you keep stuttering and saying weird stuff" Yeah...i was a bit offended at first but realized that yeah I was the one who was being weird. I feel like Korean people are slowly realizing this as well so it isn't as bad, but yes...when you guys were in Korea, it probably was really bad. When you were telling the story about the old lady at the Korean restaurant who immediately said "No, uh, no no" I felt bad for the lady, because she was probably stressed out of her mind and that was probably her having a panic attack to be honest.

    I often hear that Japanese hate foreigners, but in fact Japanese love foreigners. But everyone in Japan is not good at English, so if you talk to a foreigner, I will get nervous about thinking about what to do. That's why some foreigners may think that Japanese people do not like foreigners, looking at the face of such Japanese people. But please be relieved. Everyone in Japan loves foreigners and foreign cultures.

    I spent a decent amount in Japan and in Korea now ... although I love a lot about Japan and I’d always like to go back there I feel a bit more at ease in Korea?! Because the people there are a bit more like ... my own ones? Germany! They are friendly but sometimes rude as well! Japan makes me dizzy with all the friendliness and that they never say no to you and you just ... I could’ve yell at them sometimes because they just wouldn’t give me a decent yes or no! Korea does that!
    I didn’t experienced any of the things you mentioned! All the people were super friendly, very welcoming, they could understand me well ... even the old Ahjummas (very famous for being rude) loved us! I highly respect your opinions, I just can’t say it was the same for me!

      I like these kind of comments, because YES, people absolutely have different preferences! :) And things change as you get older too.
      I don't know why people think we're saying that people in Korea were not welcoming, we never once said that. We loved our Korean friends and the people we got to know at our favourite local shops. All we were saying, is that many places immediately assumed you didn't speak Korean and talked about you IN KOREAN while you're like, "dude, I speak Korean". I just haven't found this in Tokyo, they just assume you speak Japanese or switch to English if they see you're flustered.

    'I want to live in a city that sleeps' Weeeeeeeeeell Simon do I have some good ducking news for you. Cape Town is so quiet at night. Even when Justin Bieber was here DURING his concert I couldn't hear a damn thing. Like I live so close to the stadium it was in and it was DEAD quiet even peaceful. And Martina 'at reasonable sleeping hours' Everything is closed by 9 max 10. I mean malls and every damn thing. So that's good for yall😂😋 If you ever need a good holiday by the beach but also kind of tropical South Africa, Cape Town is good. Plus we have Mediterranean weather so nothing above like max 35°C or lower than 5°C. No snow, no heat waves. The nightlife is quiet but active if you want that😂 Let's not forget MAZE RUNNER 3 was filmed here. Cough cough just come to my city🙄 WE SPEAK ENGLISH AS A MAIN LANGUAGE. Plus our currency is weaker than the US dollar so it's cheap to come here. Yall have no excuse. You don't even need a freaking Visa😂

    Korea and Japan are two separate cultures. There are good and bad in both countries. An apple and a banana are both fruits but you can’t describe an apple with a banana or a banana with an apple. It is clearly unfair to Korean people for being subjected to bias and stereotypes in your part. There are no such thing as a good or bad culture, as every culture is different. Don’t expect Japanese people to treat you any better, and you may find many challenges living in Japan as well. A wise traveller never despises their home.

    The problem with this kind of comparison between two countries is it's always going to be a big generalization based on experiences of a few individuals. Talking about personal experience and preference is fine but making it sound like your opinion is based on the whole truth is not. Also if you have any kind of background knowledge on the history between the two countries you would realize you could have been slightly more sensible with your wording. Whether you like it or not, you are utilizing the culture, history and people from Korea and Japan to create your content, it would seem suitable that you showed a little bit more care towards them.

      Because we WERE NOT terribly unhappy in Korea! :) We have lots of awesome memories! Just because 8 years of life led us to experience some things that we were like, "huh, didn't like that, it could improve" doesn't mean we hated our time in Korea.
      This video was not supposed to be "we were secretly terribly upset and faking it for YEEARRSS" after 8 years + the difficulties of running a company + our friend almost dying in front of us.... we were like, "ok. time to go". We're loving Japan but I'm sure after a few more years we'll discover some things we don't love either. :)

    Hi I like your channel, I've just found it today thanks to Rachel and Jun channel! I would like to live in Japan too and visit South Korea:) To answer your question I am Polish but I live in the UK (7 years now) Wiltshire county - in the UFO hot spot, crop circles, near the Stonehenge, Avebury, Glastonbury...(beautiful magical area!)and I work as a H&S tester with my hobby as a fantasy/sci-fi writer :) I love this part of England and feel very at home and welcome. Everyone here is polite and smiling, saying hello to me, driving is so easy and safe. Before that I lived in Paris (France) for 7 years and I finished my studies at Sorbonne University but I didn't like living there. Paris was for me very dangerous and violent, too expensive and I didn't feel welcome there just overstressed. Many times I've heard from les parisiens that I shoud go home, and they were treating me as a trash bag only because I wasn't french. If you want to visit England and have somewhere to stay for free just let me know!! :D

    I am so happy to hear you guys say this. I just finished my first trip to Japan and Korea (2.5 weeks in each). People in Japan were unbelievably nice and welcoming! However when I went to South Korea I had some really bad experiences which have pretty much put me off going back there. I met some lovely people in Korea and the culture, nature, history etc. is amazing but when you don't feel welcome it makes it hard to enjoy it. I feel pretty bad saying this because I thought it may have just been my experience. Really appreciate the honesty guys. 😊

    You seem to be unfamiliar with Japanese culture. Japan is originally a culture that has not invited to dinner, invited birthdays, etc. Is this a lie? Please ask the Japanese people. Perhaps it is a sponsor or official of a Japanese company sponsoring you, And People who tried to contact foreigners. And people who touched a lot of foreign tourists. The house of the Japanese people in general are almost small and narrow. You know it too. It was a culture to eat the former food alone, but it has changed with the influence of the West. Do you want to have family meals? It is recent.
