Well isn’t this just a lovely and adorable video this week! We’ve been putting up a lot of questions that involved deep thinking so we thought we’d shake things up with a more light hearted theme. We have clips from two questions: give us your best animal impersonation and also, what do you do in the winter time?
I thought it was very precise and adorable to hear from that one girl who said she just sits inside on her heating pad eating Mandarins. Plug in electric floor pads are very popular and common in Korea since the heating bill for the floor heating can get expensive. We just learned that the hard way. I blame you Meemers, you’re too adorably happy with the floor heating so I didn’t turn it off after Christmas time! I always really loved the answer of “wearing sweaters” which I think does count as a winter activity and should perhaps be a new Winter Olympic Sport. It could have serious tasks such as: can you put on a sweater plus your winter gear without overheating on public transportation, can you remove it without ruining your hair or in my case, without getting it caught on your glasses and becoming trapped inside, and last but not least, how long can you wear your favourite winter sweater without having to wash it and wait for it to slowly dry on the drying rack? Perhaps it’s just me suffering with these sweater struggles… *Martina awkwardly tries to sneak away*
Interestingly, it was almost all foreigners that decided to show us their best animal imitation while most Korean people dodged that task. Hahahah. I knew it would be a risky question since a lot of Korean people are shy on camera, but I thought some little kids would have loved that question for sure! Since most questions are only up for a week maybe it wasn’t seen by any curious kids wandering into the booth. Oh well, still got some amazing imitations.
We were hoping to get some diversity of cultures because I always find it very intriguing to hear the differences in how an animal sounds. In Canada/USA we say “meow”, “arf/bark”, and “oink” for cats, dogs, and pigs. But in Korea it’s “yaaaaaow”, “mongmong”, and “gulgulgul”. I’m curious as to what sounds animals make in your country! We made a video a while back on Korean animal sounds so if you’re curious about the differences, check it out here. Be warned…it’s a little bit cheesy. SO STRESSFUL TO WATCH OLDER VIDEOS OF US… *Martina awkwardly tries to sneak away again*
