Hey guise: here’s another small random video about stuff in Korea. Nothing big. Just like back in our old vloggity style days. Sorry it’s not the K Crunch Indie segment today, because – well – Martina’s not sick anymore, but she made sure to pass it on to me before she got better. So I can barely function. But I can publish this video that we’ve had saved up for a while. It’s not a Dr. Meemersworth video, either. We’re stockpiling a few of those and cleaning up all the rainbows we’re barfing from her overwhelming sweetness.

Anyhow, Martina busted our blender. We make lots of soup, and – somehow – a crack formed on the side of it that spread till the whole thing busted. So‚Ķtime for shopping! Anyhow, we found this cool one that’s a juicer as well. Not sure how it works yet. Haven’t juiced anything in it. Hopefully it’ll be alright! But, more important than the blending or the juicing IS THE WRAPPING! No, not the box. The box was sucky and boring. It’s the ribbon that the girl prepared for us at Hyundai Department Store! We’ve never seen anything made like this before. Wrap the box in tight ribbon, attach a handle to the ribbon. BOOM! Shopping bag, made right there! And it’s not as awkward as a regular shopping bag, either, which sometimes doesn’t fit the box, and then the bag rips. And it’s more environmentally friendly! Isn’t it? I’d think ribbon is better than plastic.

Side note: I’m not sure if anyone else shops in Hyundai Department Stores in the summer, but DO THEY EVER PUT ON THEIR AIR CONDITIONING?!?!?! WTF?! Environmental friendliness, sure, saving energy, yeah yeah I get it. But, seriously, it’s such an inferno in there that we wanted to get out of there ASAP. Not good for business, IMO. Good for the environment, yes, but I don’t want to shop there if I’ve got back of the knee sweat. You know back of the knee sweat? Yeah. Gross.

  1. I love your display picture. Just saying :p

  2. I’ve had that same thing but I think at…Kohls? Or maybe it was Sears..I don’t really know. Its the tape that is just attached to the top of the box and not all the way around it. Works very nice.

  3. This is completly epic! i never knew that amazing things like this exsisted! @(*~*)@ it blows my mind like super junior ;)

  4. You know…the main videos that would tempt me to visit Korea are the random videos such as these. I especially remember your video from ages ago where you were showing the rotating parking lot? That’s something I’ve never seen anywhere else (except Tokyo Drift).
    Although I know you’re really busy coping with everyone’s demands, I really appreciate these ‘random titbits of Korea’ videos.
    In fact, when my friends went to Korea last week, they brought me the back scrubbers that you mentioned in the Jimjilbang video, that I’ve been craving for ages!! It made me so clean!! And red!! Hahahaha xD

  5. they do this in japan as well. usually if you buy appliances or furniture… most people don’t have cars so if you’re gonna have to carry something heavy back with you, it’s much more practical that way. plus, sometimes they don’t even have bags that would fit the items you bought, but this way you can still carry the stuff with you. like for example i bought a full-length mirror the other day and that woulda never fit in a bag, but i was able to bring it home just fine. the holder thingies they use here though is plastic and all pre-made and stuff.

    oh and, since we’re on the eco-topic, a lot of shops (mostly grocery stores, but some regular shops do it too) actually charge you a couple of yen if you want them to give you a plastic bag (i.e. if you don’t have your own bag). i think it’s a good thing, but sometimes it can be really annoying, especially at non-grocery-shops… do they have anything like that in korea? and what do you guys think about it?
