WTF – Korean Nose Rollers

Today, we present to you the first instalment of our Wonderful Treasure Find. You can just call it the WTF of the Week for short!

A little bit of explanation first: we’ve been showing a bit of what life is like in Korea, along with a bit of Korean Pop Culture and Kpop. We’ve kinda gotten away from highlighting the cool, funky, quirky things we love about Korea, the things that are cute and silly and still make us laugh. Well, even though we’ve been here for almost three years, that doesn’t change the fact that Korea still amazes us. So, we want to show off some of the things that amaze us about Korea. And we don’t want to do it in a very dry, Welcome-to-Korea-You-Tourist, kind of way. So no temples or tradition. We’re interested in the fun, quirky, silly, cute, and awesome little bits that Korea has to offer. So here we go!

Our first episode is on Korean Nose Rollers. Yeah. Nose rollers. Supposedly, if you rub this on your nose, you will have a beautiful nose. It’s got two different sides for, supposedly, two different settings: smooth or rough. You an even increase the tension if you want to go hardcore. There’s also the nose pincher, which really just looks like a nose plug, that will make your nose look beautiful as well. The package even tells you to wear it while driving. Oh my!

Anyhow, we find this a bit silly, because – well – we don’t think that it works, and, even if it does, is it really worth it to drive around with a noseplug? It also feeds into the silly notion that we’ve come across a lot in Korea: Korean people don’t like their noses. Many times we’ve had people point to our nose in the middle of a conversation and say “oh! Big nose bridge! Very good!” We totally don’t see what the fuss is about, and don’t think Korean people have bad noses at all, but the idea seems to be so commonplace here that every conversation we have with someone about it never really convinces them at all. Bah. At least we tried. And, as always, JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* are totally amazing for translating all of our videos into Korean. Huzzah!

  4. I never even knew there were such things! I mean, sure, ear picking is normal for us Asians… but nose rollers?! Now that was something I ROFL-ed for a good 5 minutes for. Keke, I've never seen one… Hmm, maybe I should try one? XD Does it really hurt? Because I have like these seriously sensitive skin…. and it will mark for the rest of the day. DEFINITELY not wear this before school. D: LMAO

  6. Huh never knew my nose was happy or sad. Maybe therapy for my nose would work better? I love this new series idea. I'm sure it'll be very interesting and amusing to see what else you guys find.

    • Ah, i should have checked that first! I knew you had been using a different one previously which is why i asked.
      It's funny too because i have the same camera! It'll be great to try some of those accessories with it, that you have listed.
