This product is a great product, and it’s a shame that we can’t compress it down for traveling, because I wanted to bring some for the Meet Your Kimchi Tour. During our events, we have WTF competitions, in which we bring some members of the audience on stage and challenge them to some games using the WTF items that we feature in our videos. It’s fun and silly and always results in good laughs. This chair would have been perfect! If we could have had two people wearing the chair pants, and then laying out a row of ten water balloons, and having them race to crush their ten water balloons with their chair pants, that would have been hilarious. Probably would have been a health hazard as well so we’d have to rethink it in a way that would result in injuries, but hey: there’s a chance for something fun in here. But, again, the chair can’t be broken down, and just wouldn’t fit in our luggage. Balls!
Games aside, this chair was actually a lot more comfortable to sit on than expected. It wasn’t wobbly at all. I was expecting that I’d sit on it and I’d tip over, but it was just wide enough. And it was comfortable enough to sit on as well. Overall, it was a great sitting experience. Not a great walking experience, though: one of the things that wasn’t really emphasized in this video was how the tightness of the straps around my groin resulted in my crotch popping out significantly. Maybe it was the pants that I was wearing at the time, but, whoa, was it ever awkward. I probably should have got a bigger size, but I felt like a girl in a pushup bra two sizes too small, know what I mean?
We’ve been trying to figure out who would use this the most. Who is the target demographic? We’ve noticed that Korean people can squat comfortably a lot more than I’ve ever seen non-Korean people squat. When Nic and Hugh from MyKoreanHusband stay over at our place, we’ll often see Hugh comfortably sitting in a squat position without sitting on anything, just balancing his body like that. I tried doing it myself but I tip over. I have no idea how he does it. He’s not the only one. I’ve seen people squatting this way waiting at bus stops as well. So I’m guessing that this chair is maybe for people that are used to squatting this way, but then wound up losing strength in their back or legs or something over time, from an injury or something? I have no idea. That’s my best guess. I just wish I could squat that easily!
