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?!

  1. Hmm, thanks for the heads up! I’ll let them know :)

  2. What the box!?
    ThisissoawesomeIcan’teven…

  3. This was very engrossing. I never realized that cardboard boxes can be enjoyed by more than kittens and babies. 

  4.  omg that is really too cool!!!!

  5. omg the subtitles on this are so perfect

  6. 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.”

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

  8. I’m watching this with this expression O_O

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

  10. 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?

  11. 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….

  12. 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 :)

  13. Serious awesomeness just happened there.

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

  15. Ha! That is a good question. Not rude at all! I'm pretty sure YouTube is better :D

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

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

  18. 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).

  19. 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.

  20. 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!!

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

  22. That is so awesome in a weird way.

  23. 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 ♥

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

  25. 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

  26. 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…..

  27. 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!

  28. 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)

  29. 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.

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

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

  32. 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!

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

  34. 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..)

  35. this must be the most boring job in the world…
