Jagalchi Fish Market

We don’t get to travel Korea as much as we’d like. In fact, we spend most of our time in Bucheon. But, a short while ago Simon went to the Busan International Film Festival for a couple of days and did a lot of traveling around Busan as well. One of the places visited was the Jagalchi Fish Market. Holy lots of fish Batman! Remember a while ago when we did the Sang Dong Market video and were surprised by the never ending seafood? Yeah, that place has nothing on this fish market. Live crabs were wriggling out of their sand boxes, and pretty big squid were slopping their way out of their water baskets. It was absolutely stunning, and so Simon got that Ajosshis artsy fartsy kinda movie itch. Unfortunately, he didn’t have the tripod with him, so the footage is shot freehand, and as such is a bit wobbly at times, but still hopefully watchable.

Supposedly there’s an awesome fish market in Seoul as well, but we haven’t been there yet. Hopefully we’ll be able to check it out soon. By then we hope to have a Glidecam, which will let us take some better shots. Bah!

On a side note, YouTube just released this new widget right here. We’re testing it out. We should probably have a less dorky picture up there. Whaddaya think? Looks kinda cool, but we’re not sure if it works, so, err, make sure you click on the Subscribe button to see if it works. You should get your friends to do so as well. Yeah :D

  5. HI! My hometown is Busan. I'm so happy I can see the Jagalchi fish market through your video. The song is also very good that makes me peaceful. By the way, what kind of camera do you guys use? The color is awesome!

  8. Awww. that video kinda made me Korea-sick. We would go to Jagalchi every once in a while, and once an octopus made it to the street before the lady threw him back in. Tons of "why did the octopus cross the street?" jokes after that……

  11. Yeah, I don't know. Nobody really seemed bothered by the camera. We've had really good luck with that, actually, where I've read of other people also being yelled at. Hmm…

      • Kinda hard for me to be invisible being 6 foot 4 huge white guy with a mohawk and big camera :D

        • I would bet that they didn’t yell at you because you’re so obviously a foreigner/”tourist”. If an Asian (your age) were to do this, surely (s)he will be yelled by them. xD

  12. I love your movies! And now I’ve got a craving for Hoi! But – guys! Why that sentimental music? There’s nothing melancholic about busy ajumas selling fish :) Couldn’t you try a more cheerful perspective and do a critical report on health insurance coverage / artificial dentition instead?

  13. Wow, that was kewl, did ya notice the octopus or whatever it was escaping at the 0:20 mark ? :o) This is the kind of video I would like to see more of, from you guys and others. Lets me get a glimpse of what to expect once I get my chance to teach there. Thanx for sharing. I like the music too. O0oo0oh and I can just imagine the smell :ox hah hah

    • That octopus was determined. He'd get out, then the woman would yell at it, pick it up and throw it back in. He'd just go back out right afterwards. Or the other octopus that looked just like him would go back out. I can't really tell octopi apart.
