WTF – Korean Stationery

May 11, 2011

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.

Korean Stationery Book Clips

Super cute book clips from the Korean Stationery Shop

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.

  8. JUst from an owner who once owned that kind of bookmark, I always end up loosing them because aren’t bookmarks usually found inside the book and that is like on top of the book. When I put the book back in my bag and get it back later, the bookmark either ends up scrunched up or loss between my other things inside my bag. HAHA

  11. Okay I have to ask, whenever you guys do a sexy move/face/voice/saying you always play that particular background music. Is that from Xiah Junsu’s Intoxication? Because that would be so amazing if it was!

  17. lol THAT IS diary for elementary school students. they have schedule chart because…usually kids write their diaries for homework. every year, teachers give them hw during summer break and write a diary is one of hw that they have to do. so, diary is relative school work and they write diary as homework so they need schedule chart? I don’t even know why they have schedule chart even I lived in Korea for 15yrs. anyways, most of notebook for kids in korea have kinda like that. so, i think it’s like natural thing. (i guess)

  22. Were you guys were serious about playing for hours on that ruler, and forgetting to film… I must admit one of the simplest item can bring so much joy and addiction to one’s life….

  23. The notebook you showed is usually for elementary school students to write their daily journals for class. I don’t know if they do it anymore (they probably do, since the notebooks are still in existence,) but they basically just write about what they did that day, and how the day was and then submit it to their teacher for grading. I think the weather and extra information is there to make the kids more observant of each day? maybe? hrmm.

  28. I collect alot of Morning Glory stationery! I remembered my friend gave me a Morning Glory Premium which cost S$22.80 for just a notebook. But still, the graphics and hard cover really deserves the price.
