So, yeah, we know this isn’t a super polished and edited video. No color correction, barely any editing, no music, and none of the wicked CGI we usually do. We just think that this is totally cool and wanted to share it somehow. It doesn’t really fit in with the regular content we do, either. It’s just a stupid simple video! Martina doesn’t like it, but I do! It’s Korea related, though, because…it’s in Korea. Oh! And we never saw anyone do this for us at the post offices in Canada, either. It’s more like “buy your own damn box.” Here I can just bring a bunch of junk (as seen in our WTF videos) and ask him to make a custom made box for me. 3,000 won later, I’ve got something bubble wrapped and all ready to go. In fact, I used this for wrapping Martina’s presents for Christmas this year. Seriously. I suck at wrapping presents. It’s much better to get them boxed and then draw something on the boxes instead of wrapping them horrendously in wrapping paper. It doesn’t help that my drawings suck as well, but at least they’re not as bad as his wrapping.

Also, some people have asked about what the post offices are like in Korea, and suggested that we should make a video for it. We thought about it, but, really, it’s not that confusing. We go in with envelopes or boxes (like this awesome box here), pick a number, and wait to be called. Then we just give them the package, tell them what kind of delivery we like (normal or express) and they ask for money. It’s that simple. If you’ve got questions, you can ask them here, but I don’t really know what more we can say about it.

Anyhow, we posted this on our YouTube bonus channel, so make sure to subscribe to that for more of our extra footage, like Blooper Reels and Deleted Scenes, and just other general nonsense. Hooray to having two YouTube channels! We plan on posting more stuff there in the future, and you wouldn’t want to miss out on that would you? Would you?!

  11. i cant hear their conversation really well but i think one of the guy lost something and got mad to that guy who is conjuring the box.

  12. this is totally awsome…I have to show that to my mother (when I get back to germany -.-)
    she’s packing all the tropical plants my father is selling….but SHE can’t pack that….well…like THAT..
    I can’t find any words….:D

  13. THEZANA007

  14. omg!!! im korean and i never saw someone who makes boxes that fast! (and someone who does this.. LOL)  awesome!

  15. omg the subtitles on this are so perfect

  16. Xkzpdncl

    This video is getting famous among Korean community sites. The man is saying, “I would have kept it if it was in the place where you dump things. I can’t remember but there is nothing that we are keeping. There is no reason for me to throw it away.”

  17. Well when he starts to tape the box, he says someone’s stomach was sticking out……… 0.o

  18. s**t! is that real?

  19. Zahra the magical unicorn

    everytime he finished I’d be like BRO :O YOU JUST MADE A BOX

  20. Ohhhhh wow thatttssss some skills! Ha ha ha… Id be fascinated every time I see that

  21. wow! with just a few measurements, the guy was able to come up with a box tailor-fit for the things. cool!

  22. I’m watching this with this expression O_O

  23. i never knew making boxes was so interesting lol XD

  24. Cheyenne Toliver

    This is amazing o.o

  25. jazzyfish

    I am NOT weird! There are many other people here who like to watch people make boxes…

    anyway…. That was so cool! I’m going to watch it again…

  26. Did he say Big Bang at around 2:00ish?
    Anyhow, this is some pretty epic stuff. Not many countries use this system.

  27. that was so cool!!! he was even talking to someone else and i just did it/// so fast!!!!

  28. OMG… that was totally cool… he doesn’t even need any tools.. just scissors and a long ruler.. it’ll take me hours and hours to do that… simon, u should take pictures with the guy and show us who made the awesome box.. thnx

  29. omg whoa that is way too cool ok way too cool <3

  30. Ohmygod. THAT. WAS. AWESOME!!! :D

  31. Boramay

    so does all the post offices make custom boxes or is it a special packaging place that makes the custom box?

  32. Anonymous

    Waaa, that’s super cool! I want that job.

  33. That’s cool. I wish someone in America knew how to do this. I need custom made boxes pronto!

  34. OMG, how does Martina not like this? It’s awesome! Anyways, I just want to know, in Korean stores or post offices, does one have to speak Korean to be understood, or can one just get by with speaking English?

    • Jung Hoo

      I’m Korean, so maybe I can answer for your question.
      Actually, you don’t have to speak Korean but I recommend you should learn how to speak basic Korean conversation. (ex. How much is it? or I’ll take that. etc.)
      Basically, most of ‘young’ Korean can speak and understand English. However, it depends on situation. BUT, don’t worry! :)

  35. seriously one of the coolest things ever… im so not talented..

  36. aynam10

    from what i can hear..the guy seems to have lost/left something there and the guy making the box is saying he didn’t see it. and if he had…why would he have thrown it away…and they just go on for a bit….

  37. Pallavi Sambasivan

    The fact that I was engrossed in someone making a box for two minutes amazes me….This is what Korea does to people, it teaches the art of making awesomesauce boxes :)

  38. VEEFANTASTIC

    oh.my.GOOSES!

  39. wow. now i’ m seriously considering possibility to quit my studies of law and go studying this incredibly amazing and cool art of box-making. is it weird to be sooo impressed by this video?

  40. this is just SO COOL

  41. I was literally 0o0 the entire time. I need to ship stuff home soon, so this would be really cool and convenient if I could find one near me! Is it expensive to ship stuff from Korea? I’ve been told it’s decently priced. I’m just wondering cause I need to plan accordingly.

  42. that is so awsome! wow it looks so professional!

  43. This is actually one of the coolest things I ever saw in my life.

  44. Victoria

    Serious awesomeness just happened there.

  45. livingpieces

    whatttt??? is it weird that I was completely engrossed for about 2 minutes and 31 seconds?

  46. OH and my boyfriend watched this vid and agreed that this was amazing… he said,"He has crazy APM… I bet that guy plays Starcraft."

  47. Hey, question… is it better for you guys if we click on the link to watch this on youtube instead of this site…? Like… monetary-wise *wink wink* I dunno if this a rude or inappropriate question…?

  48. strigoiaca

    This video is far too amusing/mesmerizing when you first wake up and your brain is still semi-fried from writing a paper till 2am.

  49. so pro. wow dude. just look at small details like this. … korea.. wow… O.O
    good job!

  50. I was watching like that ":O" It's amazing how fast he made a box!!!

  51. Mnguyen

    1) if you guys ever folded a box, it's got a certain shape (think 6 sided). He's just doing the pattern according to the size.
    2) The knife he used, and the paper, it's premade, 2 knot = cut through, 1 knot = indent.

    3000 won = 3 bucks USD, but the equivalent in the US would be about 6 bucks. I'm not sure if anyone would pay that much since we have USPS flat rate shipping in the US (the gigantic large box is about 15, box is free :)).

    But I can see that he's got really fast speed making it, musta made a ton of boxes haha. I used to live in asia, and I remember seeing something like this but at a clothing shop, we asked to get it boxed (for gifts), the shop owner pull out a cardboard paper and did it similar to this dude (although less skill and thiner paper = easier).

  52. I totally made a gif for this blog post. I'll tweet it.

    I want one of those Korean back massagers SO BAD. I hate living in a small town. It's a pain to get that kind of stuff.

  53. Thanks for making this video! At first I thought Simon was creating the box. Custom boxes! Love these random views into everyday life in Korea. Thanks!!

  54. Romings

    Even his sellotaping is so straight and flat :O SKILLSSSSS!!!!
    Mine never does that!

  55. Blueangel

    I wish they had that here in the US too. But sadly we don't. LIke Canada we have get our one darn box and take it too the post office. Well there are flat boxes but it's not as cool as what that guy just did.
    Thanks for sharing this Simon!

  56. ilovetoplikemartina

    dayummmmm….that's korea for you baby!!!! a cutter, tape and cardboard
    …BAMMMMMMM! a box…

  57. Michelle

    I was ridiculously entertained by that video. I think this guy should come ot the US and teach everyone at USPS, FedEx, UPS, Kinkos, etc. how to be this amazing. I would totally start sending stuff places all the time just to see someone do this. And I kind of love that Simon used this instead of wrapping paper – it was a brilliant idea!

  58. Mélanie

    I'v done that before, but he does it so fast and the box looks perfect!
    WOW I'm amazed.

  59. That is so awesome in a weird way.

  60. OMG this is the best boxing video I've ever seen….. Well actually this is the first one but still it's pretty amazing..! Love these random videos ♥

  61. i wonder if they have post office olympics? if so im sure this guy medals in boxing.:o

  62. woooooo amazing! something like that on my country wouldnt be bad cuz i really suck at wrapping things and make boxes its out of my league :P

  63. cloiebuggeater

    very cool. I think at US post offices they train the workers to glare at every customer no matter what they request :) and if they offered custom boxes they would charge your first born child…..

  64. I liked this video. He never stopped talking to his co-worker the entire time!! And the box is perfect sized.

  65. gloria :)

    OMG!!!! Genial!!!!! Si me dedicara a hacer cajas, quisera ser como él *-*!!!( en la forma de hacer cajas claro…xD)
    OMG!!!!Awesome!!! If I´m dedicate to making boxes, i want to be like him *-*!!! (in the way of making boxes, of course…xD)

  66. Jin900717

    I saw you guys at the bar in HongDae today!! I wanted to say hello to you guys but………….I was so shy…. haha^^
    and Simon, you looked much better in person!

  67. How can Martina not like that – that was pretty amazing. That guy is a Box Master. The things that guy could do with a craft knife. It would have taken me an hour to make the same box.

  68. DarkSunMoon

    That is experience and artistry at work here; I'm in awe!
    I wish we were taught to do things like that, here in Canada! (But in Québec, they took most of the classes involving manual work out of the curriculum; I'm appalled! It's not like a nation only needs government office workers! T_T)

  69. i think it's great that you decided to post it! i doubt this box-making thing can be seen in most post offices worldwide.

  70. It's amazing how koreans serve customers. they have all kind of small things that make you feel special, i love that and i'm kind of ashamed of the customer treatment in my country. here the salesman/saleslady gets angry if you just wanna look around the shop or if you ask questions about your purchase.

  71. he was not stopping even for a second lol amazed.

  72. Brandon

    This ajushi is so BA.

  73. omo, I never thought making box would be so awesome XD

  74. I wish they made boxes at the post office here.. I have to buy an oversized, super expensive box to ship things in :p Though I doubt the old ladies at the post office here will start making boxes, haha! Very interesting vid!

  75. just amazing … this guy is total pro ^^

  76. *Poker face*
    He just… fwoop, fwoop, fwoop… TADA! You just made a box.
    And I like the subs 8)

  77. OMg this is just amazing! I was like.. *-* & also like 0__0
    Ok i'm sure if i try to do a box my hand would be cut and in blood xD (sorry if u can't understand what i'm saying, i'm french so..)

  78. furusek

    this must be the most boring job in the world…

  79. Soo Jin Lee

    Ooooooooh Its really amazing!!!!!!!0_0 but his voice or attitude is not kind…

  80. If I tried flinging a box cutter around anywhere near as fast as that guy was I would lose a finger… or five. But wow, his boxing skills were amazing!! I wonder how long it takes to get that good?

  81. Native Korean

    I can hear what the boxman(?) is saying. Perhaps he is arguing with someone(a customer or his boss). I think he is a little bit annoyed.

    "포장해놓는거 봤잖아요"(You saw I was wrapping it.)
    "버리는데 있었으면 제가 보관해놨죠. "(when it was in throwing place(?), I picked and had it.)
    "가지고 있었으면 분명히 제가 넣었겠죠. 안넣었겠어요? 기억은 안나는데 제가 뭐 보관하는건 없어요"
    (If I had it, I should keep it, didn't I? I can't remember excactly, I don't have anything.)

    I can't translate exactly and I can't figure oldman's voice :)

  82. That was really cool! Thanks for the video! I wish you guys posted more random stuff like this, coz it's fun to know more things about Korea. It doesn't matter if it's not as well edited or filled with CGI because that's not the reason people are watching these! Thank you again and I wish you all the best! And greetings from Finland. :)

  83. OK…
    Amazing!
    How can he do that so… so… quickly, perfectly???
    Was it the Post Office?
    I'm always bringing my own box, recycled from an other parcel… I'd better to do that!
    It so perfect!!!

    (Cannot log with my FB account… weird…)

  84. nanasse

    awesome!
    or how to be amazed by a guy making a box… xD
    I would have cut myself 10times haha

  85. wow he's good!
    i feel like any boxes i attempted to make would be shit-tastic

  86. Best Boxing video I've ever seen!

  87. DavidCAI

    Whouaaaa!!! Daebak!!! :O

  88. I am impressed. Half-cuts for folds, angle cuts without guides, wrinkle-less taping……this man is the next Youtube (and PostOffice) sensation.

  89. OMG. Jaw still on floor. Skillz!

  90. That was flipping awesome! No, i mean, I am throughly amazed.

  91. is this at the post office?? can i just go to the post office by my house and ask for this?**

    **i do live in korea~^^

  92. He just… made it. And it's perfect!
    I'm truly impressed. Thank you for sharing this awesomeness!

  93. I'm highly jealous of that talent. I wrap pretty well, but making a box? No. *amazed*

  94. That was so cool. I want to learn how to make a custom-made box too and make it a business. hahaha!

  95. Jonathan in Florida

    That was fun to watch! Even the simplest things can have beauty. Thats why it's a pleasure to watch skilled athletes or craftsmen or artists – sure handed, no wasted movement. For example, I find this video about cleaning fish to be kinda beautiful : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qE_ZN1mHKvo … Granted, I guess I'm a bit strange…

  96. hahahaha it is so funny to hear korean conversation while he is making box lol basically, there is one old man voice and *box maker* (younger).. old man seems mad that his stuff is gone and claims that post office must keep it. but box maker says he does not have it lol

  97. *0* That skill can get him a spot in Star King show. The way he measured the box is AMAZING!!!!

  98. ekimiss

    I love making boxes too! I can make money out of it? haha Love this vid :)

  99. I'm with you on this one. I'm impressed!

  100. My face was =O the whole time. lol

  101. The fact that he made a fully legit box in under 3 minutes is AMAZING. I have constructed (over the years) at least a hundred handmade boxes…for art stuff/gifts…the speed and skill he has….wowsa! I feel humbled. And for under $3 bucks (!) dahum. I like these random vids…keep 'em coming. :)

  102. He just made a box…no sarcasm but I'm amazed.

  103. this makes me want to live in Korea!!!!

  104. omg i'm so amazed i can't close my mouth. can i borrow him this Christmas…?

  105. Wow. He is a box packaging magician.

  106. Karinex

    LOL I JUST WRITE "LIKE A BOX" instead of LIKE A BOSS!!! I'm a fail OTL :'(

  107. Karinex

    I need to learn how to boxing…. LIKE A BOX O_O!!!!
    It was really REALLY fast and PERFEEEEEEEEEEEEEEECT!!!!!!
