Driving Through Seoul at Night

Since we got our new camera, we feel artsy-fartsy every once in a while, like you can see in our Ajosshis video a little while back. Today’s another one of those days that we feel artsy. We were inspired by the scene in Lost in Translation when Bill Murray and Scarlett Johannson are driving through Tokyo at night, and you see the city through their eyes. Know which one we’re talking about? She’s wearing the pink wig and they’re got “Sometimes” by My Bloody Valentine playing in the background? Anyhow, we would like to see some more videos of Seoul at night, but we can’t really find all to many, so we made our own version of it. Martina and I took the taxi home from Seoul, and – hell – Seoul’s so beautiful at night that we had to get it on film. So here it is, our little Homage to Taxi Drivers and Lost in Translation. Hope you like it!

  4. I love your videos and this one makes me want to go to Korea more then ever but I’m a bit iffy on that cause I’ll need a place to stay before hand and that is sooo not possible unless you have friends there before :P

  8. Hello! I just wanted to say that I adored this video… I actually was a exchange student in S.Korea (Around the Ilsan-Paju area) and it was gorgeous and I'm hopefully going back again this summer…. This video is probably my favorite as that is EXACTLY how SKorea is at night… Traffic and people waiting. :)
    Thank you for bringing me back to Korea, if only for 2 minutes. :) I miss it terribly!

    You guys really awesome, I living in Australia so sometimes I got homesick, but whenever I see your video,it made me feel a bit closer to home.
    Really thanks guys, how long are you going to stay S.Korea?

    • Thanks Jin! As to how long we're staying in S.Korea, we don't know, because every year we plan to stay for just one year, and when it's up we always decide to stay another. We might never leave! Who knows.

    Ok, thanks! This is a big help to me. You guys really help me a lot. I'm really glad I got to see the private vs. public school vid!

  13. I'd recommend linguistics. We both studied English and it was mainly English literature that we studied, and we don't teach any literature here. I (Simon) took one Linguistics course and it's helped me tremendously in teaching here.

  14. We both majored in English and then got our Bachelor's of Education as well. As for certification in Korea, we don't know much about that, apart from doing online certification programs.

    I have question too, since Michelle (above) asked one. I was wondering if you have a lot of Korean friends?

    • Thanks! Glad you like our videos! As for Korean friends, we don't have a lot, but we have some, and the Korean friends we have are really, really good friends to us.
