  • 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.

    As far as, actually wearing it. I think Korean fashion is better because it seems more sophisticated and professional.As far as Jpop vs Kpop, I think Jpop is vastly superior to Kpop.To me Kpop just seems formulaic but I still do like it because most of the time it is catchy.The thing I like about Jpop is they seem to be more varied, innovate, creative, experimental and are willing to go outside the box more than their Korean counterparts.

    well I've lived in USA/Canada for ~12 yrs and racism is real here as well. I am fine with it but I cant take it when it happens to my parents. Some people are just mean to them just because they don't speak good English. Well I always tell the racists that if i ever go back to Korea and if I ever meet people from their country, I will be mean to them and it will be because of them. I mean it. It wont happen if you guys are nice to me/my parents/asians/ppl who are diffenret so please be nice to other people.

    In 1993, a careless Japanese politician, Yohei Kono was deceived by sneaky South Korean old women who begged for apologies to them with crying and weeping. These very cunning Korean old women acted just like miserable victims, though they were mere prostitutes in fact. Stupidly and stupidly, he promised to apology to them. On the other hand, cunning South Korean politicians suddenly begun to make a fuss. Yes, everything was a dirty trap set by South Korean government. Furthermore, sneaky South Korean government created a fake story that 200,000 Korean girls were forcibly abducted by Japanese army. Sneaky South Korean scammers are expecting that a lie would be believed as the truth if they loudly make a fuss.
    ★★★ Never forget, Japanese people will surely revenge against South Koreans thoroughly and thoroughly forever !!!

    As a Korean living overseas and visiting Korea recently, I experienced that people literally pushed me in a crowded area too which pissed me off so much and felt so shameful for my friends from Colombia and Germany who got shocked because of the rude people. I dont think it occurs very often but the rude behavior can't be tolerated whatsoever and needs to be improved especially towards Foreigners visiting and wanting to know about Korea

    AUUUGHHHHHHHH IM LITERALLY SO STRESSED I've been trynna decide where to move and it's been the only thing in my mind for 3 months now. i'm usually decisive but this dilemma im facing is wayy too much-
    I'm moving out to either japan or korea for college I'm of korean descendant and i have a lot of family who live in korea but i love Japan ssoooooo much more. I love japan's culture and shrines and i think japanese language is really pretty, i feel happy just hearing people speak japanese it's crazy. the only problem is,, i'm hella noisy and outgoing and i guess i don't fit the generalization of japanese people? i think itd be troublesome if everyone around me were weirded out by me all the time.
    THe thing i like about korea though is that some of my family members live there (including my bro) and the makeup as Bibibap said is suuuuper cheap and good quality!
    I've been to korea as a child a couple times but ive never been to japan. it may be too early for me to decide but i doubt that my opinion will change at all later on. I have a feeling i'm going to move to Japan though :)) thanks for this video bibibap~! really helped me a lot

    I really agree with her opinion that Koreans are unfriendly with foreigners especially older generation. I'm Korean who have friends came from US and I see olds are watching with some negative minds towards them. At school, I can see students are making hateful comments about black people too. However, Korea and younger generations are trying to solve these problems. Korea is working on welfare system about multicultural families and immigrants. I know a social gaze have to be change and government has to give more. Well, we wants to help to change a social gaze, me and my friends are planning to have campaign with 'true equality' at each school. Also a number of people in here does this kind of campaign. We wants to have a equal treatment and we are working hard for it. SO please please please don't get any discriminating perception of Korea. We are changing. You can look forward to it. I mean it.

    I'm Korean and I totally get what you're talking about. There're lots of people being rude to foreigners. I can't imagine how much hard time you've been through. you don't have to feel sorry for expressing your ideas and feeling.
    I liked your video so much. I agreed on many of your subjects.
    about personal space, that's definitely a cultural thing. Koreans are much more enthusiastic about expressing their emotions and they like to be in part of other's life, share lives... so not really get bothered by being touched and that kind of stuff. as I've studied Japanese for 10 years and been their many times, I feel Japanese are more timid and they care about not to get into other's space and life, which feel so clean and nice but sometimes I feel I'm excluded from their community. So which will you prefer? It's your choice

    Racism is everywhere, but its a whole different kind of racism i guess. I grew up in the Philippines and i have never met a Filipino who genuinely liked their brown skin or just darker skin color in general. Not generalizing, but I'm just saying this based from my experience. I was even influenced by this kind of mindset too, I'm black and filipino. I've tried to whiten my skin but regretted it after I've seen the results. i did it coz it was considered beautiful. So in most Asian countries racism doesn't go as deep as racism in Western countries, its quite shallow. Which i think is even worst. For a person to treat another person differently because they don't look like you. Or they have this concept about a certain race based on a movie or a song.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    - People don't hold doors

    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.

  • Octavus5

    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.

    Do you feel your opinion would differ had you stayed in Japan first and then South Korea? Thanks for the video I'm having a tough time figuring out whether I want to teach in Japan or Korea maybe I might do both

    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.

    I think that everyone has their opinions,and instead of arguing and assuming that the haters are korean or japanese,i think it's better to just respect others opinions,but some comments have swearing or hating on Korea or japan.I know that people have the will to swear freely but...meh.Everyone has countries they like and dislike. Personally I like both countries;they have their good and bad points.

    A pretty fair video, though many of the cons for Japan wouldn't actually apply outside Tokyo, for example cities like Nagoya and Kobe are very modern and clean and have very modern, easy to use public transport systems, they are also far more laid back than Tokyo.

    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.

    Very surprising impression, which I have ever heard! Seoul is new and modern than Tokyo? Seoul is clean? Korean food is better? You are one of the million foreigners, probably. Generally speaking, it is rare to find something better in Korea than that in Japan.

    the reason why Korea doesn't have historic places compared to Japan is because most of them were destroyed by Japan during the Japanese colonial period

    I like the part where you talk about the Japanese people's general respect for others..... It's actually a deep rooted cultural thing... 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.

      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. 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.

      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.
