Korean Stationery doesn’t really fit our regular WTF pattern. Most of the time we show things that confuse us or things that we find odd or interesting. But that’s not the only meaning of WTF (if you didn’t know, WTF stands for ‘Wonderful Treasure Find’). Cute and fun things are also wonderful treasures. Today we’re gonna play with some of them.
So this time we’re looking at Korean stationery. We were already big fans of it from back home. When we visited Toronto Koreatown we stopped by Morning Glory, which is a stationery shop that sells totally awesome things. Martina blew plenty of paycheques there buying stickers and pencils and pencil cases and whatnot. Here in Korea, though, the Morning Glory stores are not nearly as expensive. All the cool things we saw in Toronto, here for under a buck! Woohoo! They’ve got a website as well, but since it’s all in Korean we’re not really sure what you can do with it. We think it’s the right one because of the Blue Bear, which is common in Morning Glory.
Anyhow, we pretty much played with the book and the bookmark tags as a cover for our real goal: to play with the roulette ruler. See, there’s a bit of a story behind it. When we were filming our Jay Park Abandoned review, we needed a ruler for the cheesy math flirtation scene. We didn’t actually own a ruler. So we ran to the stationery store and quickly bought one. Oh, oh how little we knew the power of this thing. At first we thought “wtf is up with this circle thingy?” And then started playing with it. Four hours later we were cold, hungry, and confused and still didn’t film our scene. That thing is…is maddening. It’s like Sauron’s ring. We’ll give it away in our Wonderful Treasure Find contest, but, until then, we will lose countless productivity hours playing with it. My…my precious.
This is probably just the start of us doing Korean stationery videos. There are just so many cool things out there. Um, ok we’d write more but we’re kinda distracted playing with the rulerette thingy. Ok bye! If you’ve seen any Korean Stationery things you’d want us to review, please let us know. We might have difficulty reading the comments though because…of…my precious.
