Back in December, we filmed a bunch of videos for other people, including three for Arirang TV, two of which we’ve already uploaded:
One of the things we love to do when we go to new countries is check out their supermarkets. Sounds lame, doesn’t it? I don’t know: it just seems like there’s so much for you to learn from a country’s supermarket. The atmosphere, the stuff they’re selling, the way they market their products. It’s amazing. […]
Every once in a while we get on a subway that isn’t packed. Really! It’s empty enough for us to sit! Amazing! Anyhow, during those rare moments, we occasionally see what you’re about to see: Korean men going from cart to cart selling stuff, like superglue and stain removers and Christmas carols. We always found […]
Simon’s sick of shopping for clothes in Korea. They never fit, EVER! Korea’s got a great sense of fashion, but none of it fits him. To buy clothes, he’d wait until he went back to Canada over the summer and filled his suitcase there, but not anymore. We’ve discovered something much better. If you’re a […]
We’re happy that we found this place, because this is what we kind of expected Korea to be like before we got here: marketplaces with bad lighting and fresh produce, fresh fish, and meat cut right in front of you, vendors yelling for your attention, and random sock stores that don’t seem to fit in […]
Here’s another one of those videos of things that amaze us about Korea. The locker system they have for their malls are computerized! Why they are computerized, we can’t be too certain. The basic coin system we’ve known most of our lives seemed to have handled the job well enough, but, hey, computers make everything […]
We were looking for things to do over the weekend apart from lesson planning. We decided to go to the Coex Aquarium as a result. It didn’t require a lot of planning or effort. We just hopped on the subway, took line 1 to Sindorim Station, then took line 2 to Samsung Station, which you’ve […]
Customer service in Korea has its ups and downs. One major annoyance is that, everywhere you walk in a store, the employees shadow you like you’re going to steal something. They’re not being suspicious – not at all. Turn around and you’ll find them smiling and waiting to help. It’s just annoying to not have […]
Yesterday was a very solemn holiday in Canada: Remembrance Day. We were surprised, though, to find a different holiday being celebrated here in Korea on the same day. Instead of honoring the soldiers that fell in war, Korea celebrates something known as Pepero Day. You may know Pepero as “Pocky” instead, the chocolate dipped sesame […]
In North America, you have your common big-name products: Pepsi, Oreo, Tide, Heinz, Dentyne etc. In Korea, we’ve got different name brands; and so we made a short video for you to familiarize yourselves with these products. If you don’ t know about Xylitol, Dr. You, and Chilsung, then it’s about time you learned.
This is something we found highly amusing. We were looking for a new toilet seat because our current one is broken. When you sit on it you have to be very careful, or it might slide and dump you in the toilet. Anyhow, we were in Emart looking for replacement seats and found some very […]
Every once in a while we find things that really shock us in Bucheon, Korea. Here’s one of those moments. I – Simon – was in the washroom at Home Plus and really annoyed to hear a dog barking incessantly in the hallway. It was just wailing away, and I wondered who would bring a […]
We told you last week a little bit about the Shopping Malls here in Bucheon, and made a short video of it. We didnâ€™t go into a lot of detail with Home Plus, even though it was really amazing. Yesterday we made a longer video on Home Plus, just so you could get a better […]
Weâ€™ve been shopping for the past five hours or so. We only went to four places: The Hyundai Mall, The Mall, The Sooooping (or something like that) Mall, and Home Plus. The Hyundai Mall is ten stories tall and mirrors The Mall via a glass walkway. The tenth floor of both buildings has no shopping; […]
