JAPAN vs KOREA IMO

  • Added:  4 months ago
  • I really did not want to do this video, but now that I have lived in Japan for almost 1 year, I feel I can now have a solid opinion based on my experiences. PLEASE WATCH WITH AN OPEN MIND. I am not picking sides or saying which country is better. Every country has its pros and cons and these are just my list of pros and cons based on my real life experiences living in South Korea for 2 years and Japan for 1 year. This video has been consistently requested since I moved to Japan which is why I am now sharing it before I move out of Japan.

    Where would you recomend where to live in korea? Seoul? Busan? I don't know


    I am scared to move to South Korea because of all of the threats from North Korea. Please people, tell me if I will be safe.

    Don't mean to sound like a douche. 😂💕

    Koreans do not like mix especially older generation. You might feel ignored many times. That doesn't mean they don't like you. You have to respect people because they are older than you which means older people have more wisdom. That is Korean culture that you have to figure out. If you can show that you speak Korean well, they will like you. And sushi, you have to know certain place to go to enjoy the sushi. Koreans just go to market and buy live fish so they eat it as sashimi( sushi and sashimi are not samething). Koreans do not eat sushi many times. And there are many nice temples and mountains you can visit. When I was young and living in Busan, I visit a temples near by. Some places they have koi pond and nice view. And I don't believe in Buddhism. It is not tourist attraction but very nice place to visit. They are everywhere. And Visit Busan. The city has more interesting buildings now. Make sure to bring a Korean friends. It is not easy to go around without Korean speaking friends.

    Not surprising at all. This is the common sense in the internet: "Japan > Korea". Ugh.

    Gaijin culture, hole in the floor toilets and general acceptance of pedophilia (ever heard of loli corn? Yeah). And that's just three somewhat superficial flaws about Japan.

    JAPAN IS NOT PERFECT. QUIT TRYING TO MAKE IT THE BEST PART OF ASIA. IT. IS. NOT. Shoot.

    Negatives of Korea from a Korean-American:
    - No trash bins on streets
    - Men spit and smoke a lot on streets
    - Sewage smell coming out from manholes
    - Public restrooms lack toilette paper and soap
    - People don't hold doors
    - People do not wait for all to exit (i.e. subway) before entering

    I hate Korea so much that I will be visiting there yet again this year for like the 100th time! XD

    During my visit to Korea I could not help but think about how it is so much worse than Japan. It has its own perks but Japan is sill much more satisfying on so many levels - cleaner, friendlier, nicer. People are much less superficial than Koreans, their music is better, they are less uniform, more polite, etc. Japan vs. Korea is like comparing Quality vs. Trend. I do like Korean fashion more though.

    Holy crap. The video started off with positives for Korea but ended with some terrible stuff that makes one wonder why you're living in Korea. Jeesus!

    If you like the feeling/passion of Koreans then you're going to get the bad as well. If you prefer the "polite" face of the Japanese, then it's going to be superficial (as you pointed out). Make up your mind.

  • Octavus5
    Octavus5 1 month ago

    Less "historical stuff" in Korea is not because they're a newer country. (Have you studied any Korean history?) Korea is older than Japan. However, during the Korean War, Americans flattened EVERYTHING. More bomb tonnage was dropped on Korea than in the entire Pacific theater in WWII. It's a miracle there are any historical sites left at all.

    One of the reasons Koreans have an historical animosity towards foreigners is because of the period of Japanese colonial occupation as well as US military involvement in the past and up to the present. This is not "culture". It's historical experience.

    When foreigners kill up to a 1/3 of your population, how would you feel?

    During WWII, a little over 2M Japanese died. Guess how many Koreans died during the Korean War? 3M! As I said, American forces killed civilians and carpet bombed everything, including dams, canals and other civilian infrastructure, which are war crimes.

    Now, you may presume that the Korean War was caused by the Korean people. Not really. The Korean War is a direct outcome of division that the Americans imposed on the Korean people after WWII. They came in the guise of liberators but divided the country between North and South in order to further their geopolitical interests.

    I am Japanese. I could not understand what you are talking about because I am not good at English, is it that you like Korean better than Japan? If so, please let me say one thing. I went on a trip to Korea two years ago. And I took a taxi to get on it, but I was told that "You are a Japanese?" From a taxi driver, so saying "Yes, that's right." I thought why I need to hear such a thing ... I arrived at my destination. So, when I tried to pay the amount, I was asked for money of nearly 80 dollars, although I moved only a little under 2 kilometers. Is this amount reasonable? At this moment I tried to ask "Is it because it is a Japanese?", But I did not say it was stupid to say even that word. I will not go to Korea anymore. It is fine if you do not like Japan, please do not talk to people in other countries.

    The thing I find funny is that people from America expect other countries to have English for their conveniences. But if you travel to America or Canada, there's no way you can get around with not knowing any English in comparison to a lot of other countries, the signs usually have English on it and if people know you don't understand their language they'll at least try to communicate with you with the amount of English they know. In America if you try to speak other language when you shop or dine, nobody will gives a dame about you.

Personally I like both countries;they have their good and bad points.

    A pretty fair video, though many of the cons for Japan wouldn't actually apply outside Tokyo, for example cities like Nagoya and Kobe are very modern and clean and have very modern, easy to use public transport systems, they are also far more laid back than Tokyo.

    Is it really racism though? I lived in Asia many years and been in Korea several times. Been rejected entry to bars etc.. But I'm pretty sure its not cause of my race. I suspect its because i don''t speak fluent korean and not behaving like a local Korean. More of a cultural issue than a race issue, I think. But that's just my thinking.. I found the whole experience funny rather than anything else.

    I like the part where you talk about the Japanese people's general respect for others..... It's actually a deep rooted cultural thing... It's something called public mind "Tatemae" and privatemind "Honne" .... that kindness and respect is basically to keep harmony in society and make sure that everyone around you is comfortable....while true feelings are only expressed at home or with really close friends... Koreans care less about it i guess.

    I am glad that there are many foreigners who appreciate South Korea higher than Japan.
    Japan is a country which has developed by imitating Korean culture historically.
    They just civilized early using the Korean War.
    South Korea has started economic development late but currently swallowing most of Japan industries.
    While Japan is stuck at $30,000++ gdp per capita, South Korea is still growing at over
    $30,000 this year.
    The Japanese are not able to develop further because the brain is contaminated with radioactivity.

  • Simon Jang

    As a South Korean myself, I've recognised some racisms in my country as well, and I do agree with your opinion that it might be because Korea is new to tourism. Although anti-racism activities are gradually growing here, it's still far behind compared to what it's supposed to be like. I feel terribly sorry for all the foreigners who got offended by racism in S. Korea

    In another perspective, our culture has changed rapidly through each of generations. To young generations (including myself), we consider that 'extreme' kindness is rather a excuse than politeness, and older generations thinks in the opposite way.

    And oh dear... the pollutions...

    We LITERALLY DETEST THE POLLUTIONS. I've spent some time in Britain and I sometimes feel that weather's even worse here.😱😱

    Plus, we do feel the necessity of 'personal space', but due to the popularity density, we are kinda desensitised of knocking each over in streets.

    Oh well, I think I just wrote too many words solely depending on my 'personal' opinion. But I really hope that my comment here give a better understanding of Korean culture to foreigners😊✌️

    I continue to see more and more videos of "Korea vs. Japan" from Westerners and I can't help but make the conclusion that they're culturally incompetent. While I understand that people are entitled to their opinions, most seem to visit Korea "expecting" the country, its culture and people to be what THEY want it to be. Visiting a foreign country (101) is to live with an open mind and be UNDERSTANDING. Figure out why the people act the way they do and for what reason. From my personal experiences and being Asian myself, I tend to see why certain groups (Koreans, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Filipinos, etc.) act the way they do - they all have very distinctive characteristics and a lot of it is based on their respective cultural and historical backgrounds. I am half Korean half Japanese and have experienced very similar yet very different ways of life in both Korea and Japan. Now, what is "negative" or "bad" is all subjective but Westerners simply judge Koreans or Japanese based on what they are used to in their own countries. The more and more I see comments on these type of videos, I see lots of Westerners being very critical of Korea yet very praising of Japan. Again, I respect everyone's opinions but noticed that they're simply judging Koreans (by generalizing of course...) at face value. As a Korean, I'll explain why Korea may not be the most "accepting" of foreigners, one clear answer: HISTORY. Korea is highly known to most historians and Westerners as the hermit kingdom, simply because during the reign of the Joseon dynasty, Korea was a very secluded country (can't blame them since they are small in size compared to big superpowers like China and Japan) and did not open its doors to foreign trade, diplomats, etc. The country eventually had to by coercion as it was invaded by China and Japan through its history. Korea was basically late to the game when it came to globalization and so the people have not learned to assimilate to these changes (ESPECIALLY the older generations). Korea's culture is heavily based on Confucian ideals, which is a very, very different way of life for foreigners to understand. Overall, it's going to take time for Korea and Koreans to be more open but one CANNOT expect Korea to change its culture and way of life just for foreigners. That's just flat out stupid right?

    As a side note, I get very surprised by other Asians who comment so negatively against Koreans or Japanese when we all coexist in Asia and as people of the same continent, have similar characteristics too. I would presume that Asians, if anything, would be more understanding of each other's cultures than Westerners. Just a thought.

    i always feel funny about 'korea vs japan' videos like this. they always have one thing in common. people who don't have a specific job, made only low quality contents like fashion blogs and food blogs, and can't get deeply involved in the society, always describe japan dramatically good and praise it. this is so easy to explain. because japan's culture-selling industry is really big, and their tourism system and public services are perfectly aim to attract foreign tourists. so people easily get blinded. (and if you want, you can settle in this position as a foreign-tourist for a rest of your life in japan. because there are many good foreigner policies. you can spend your whole time with chasing stuff like anime, like rachal&jun.) this kind of people are being in that country and spend whole time only as 'consumer', not a producer. they enjoying buying their cultural production, but they don't watch or participate in it's specific procedure, just experience output of it's society. they used to seller-buyer relationships of japan(which mostly unilaterally makes them feel good) and entire thinking skills about human relationship of other country are stuck in that structure. they judge and compare humanity or even their ethnicity, with other country. even if they only experience expertly friendly type of people in service industry. i think this is why there are so many korea vs japan viedos. and the quality of the contents produced by foreigners is different too. koreans are very popular with '올리버 쌤', '박개대','영국남자', who is experimenting, analyzing and explaining cultural differences. Japan, on the other hand, they love yotubers like 'simon & martina', 'taylor r', 'rachal & jun'. they are the perfect examples of the 'consumers' what i said. (sorry for my bad english, i might grammatically wrong)

      brokenStuff29 I see. So Japan is okay with youtubers like Simon and Martina but Korea isn't because their content isn't productive enough, right? I wonder why that it. I am interested in both Korea and Japan so I've been watching videos like these to help my decision on which one to choose.


    • brokenStuff29

      yes they were making contents about korea and consume korean culture too, but they were not popular towards native korean people who live in korea for their whole life because of that. they get most of their views from foreigners who interested in korean culture, or korean americans who wants to feel cultural power or pride about their home country.
      these days korean miniater of culture, sports and tourism which called '문화체육관광부' invest huge money to encourage travel agents and earn more foreign currency by attract tourists, so they make a contract with youtubers and advertise korean tourist attractions. but simon martina failed to appeal korean minister's (investor) attention. they even open contents-making company in hongdae, but they couldn't attract interest of people. It's because of their characteristic of contents is not very productive and they are not that popular in korea. unlike '영국남자korean engliah guy'. they sponsered by korean government minister. simon&martina are not popular maybe because they can't even speak korean properly and live extremely limited circle of space in korea. they just stuck in hongdae which is full of korean restaurants and shops and meet only hongdae people, and judge and analyze korean culture like they are professionals or something. even if their lacks of knowledge or backgrounds about culture which easily inferred from situation they are in are too obvious for native koreans like me.

      Interesting. So you think Japan sells it's culture better than Korea? And I'm just curious as to why you think Simon and Martina are just consumers in Japan. Didn't they do the same thing when they lived in korea?

    It really depends on a person what u take the most important or seriously bc everyone is after different stuff. like foods, jobs or whatever. Also what's hard is when it comes to personality or the way people there treat you, you can't help it bc personalitly or the way people treat you is all based on where they're born and How they're raised. Let's say According to my experience Korean people are more patriotic. I personaly dont really like that, but seems like they're educated like or told something like that by their parents, teachers, histories or whatever. So i think it's really a big deal if you find people there rude or unrespectful.

    日本語訳は下にあります↓This video has a very clear message to the whole world that good about South Korea is their cheap cosmetic products. And the bad part of South Korea is all Korean people. Coincidentally all Chinese, Japanese, East Asians have the same opinion about South Korea. Lmao!  If only there were no Korean people living in South Korea, South Korea would be a way better country. That's the conclusion of all people who get to know about Koreans. Lmao!彼女のビデオは、【韓国の良いところを強いて挙げるなら、安っぽい化粧とK-POPがあるだけ。 韓国の欠点は、全ての韓国人。 人間として韓国人は世界最低!】というハッキリとしたメッセージです。www 我々日本人全員と同じ結論に至ってるところが笑えますね!www

  • Girl Crazy For J-pop Culture

    Cosmetic is the reason why I would love to live in South Korea. Japan has cool cosmetic stores but they are so expensive. I can't afford them. As a foreigner I can't even find a good moisturiser for my skin.
    As a music lover I love Japan. They have great musicians, producers and dancers but the problem is that most of them are not available online. Only solution to buy some songs and music videos is to buy CD/DVD (Bands like Arashi don't sell their songs on iTunes and many J-pop CDs are not allowed sell outside Japan) Japanese CD stores are huge, you can find K-pop, J-pop, French, American, deluxe edition of American albums, everything! Japanese concerts are mind blowing. You can enjoy that type of concert outside Japan.
    I have Korean friends but it's hard to make friends in Japan (for me at least). Sometimes it hard to understand a Japanese person in front of you. Every county is racist but as a brown girl I found Korea more racist (not so racist but I don't like someone staring at me).
    Language is one problem in Japan.

    I always wonder why foreign YouTubers living in Japan or Korea (non-Japanese or non-Korean) often touch this sensitive topic. I love watching their movies cuz it's fun and good to know how foreigners think of my own country, but I think they shouldn't make this kind of videos without proper knowledges even if they are requested. It just fan the flame of conflicts between both sides of such crazy Internet-living extremists down below. It sometimes makes me feel they are too greedy to earn views. If you felt you didn't want to make this video, you're right Bii. I guess the issues between Japan and Korea is more serious topic than you reckon. By comparing Japan and Korea and deciding which is better, some people will definitely be unhappy about it even if you have no offence... But anyway I like your videos, so let me give you advice as a fan, if you want to make this kind of videos, make it more cheerful, don't be too serious like you did in this video, just try to lighten up the both sides of viewers:)

      Hello, I'm back.
      Please do not call me a "dirty liar" when I work hard to support my family and when I try to live the most honest life I can. I do not want to hear such nasty words from a stranger.
      If you actually read Professor Yuna's book, she did not claim that all comfort women were prostitutes. She claimed that only some were which is reasonable. The reason why her book was banned was not entirely because of the controversial content of it, it was also because of the discovery that her ancestors were pro-Japanese that supported the annexation of Korea.
      Kato was ordered not to leave South Korea because his article was incredibly disrespectful to the former president and also because it was pretty much anti-Korean . He was trialed for his controversial article like a proper democracy and was found not guilty because of the law protecting freedom of speech.
      I do not understand why you keep bringing up former President Park when she was impeached and is now in jail. The impeachment and her imprisonment was all possible because of the people's power and the freedom to protest. The protests were peaceful and no one was arrested.
      It is true that there were Korean soldiers who committed shameful atrocities while serving the Imperial Japanese Army but that # was a very small minority. Most of the Koreans who went into the battlefield were drafted(forced to) and were mostly used to be suicide bombers.
      China is an extremely large country and was even larger back then. Your claim that 80% of China's territory was owned or occupied is extremely exaggerated. Even if the British, the French, and the Russians were carving up Asia, Japan was no different because they did just the same.
      Your claim that Russia was invading Korea is extremely laughable. Russia was actually planning on helping Joseon modernize and the two had strong diplomatic ties.
      Your ignorance of World War II makes me pity you. The Japanese Empire declared war on the allies side in 1940 and formed an alliance with the axis side (Nazi Germany, Italy). The allies side warned the Japanese Empire not to attack but they did. In 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor and invaded many islands in the pacific that America owned. Japan also invaded Southeast Asia driven by the ambitions of wanting to taking over the world.
      After constant warnings from the allies side, America was forced to unfortunately A-bomb Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
      You refuse to believe the history of what really happened and instead choose to believe the propaganda that the right wing nationalists feed you. Just letting you know that Japan is also part of the UN so claiming that the UN "distorted" history means that Japan supports the "distortion."
      Japan was once one of the most hated countries on earth until the 1980s when Japan worked hard to improve their image abroad. The older generation of not only East Asia but even the countries that were part of the allies side still hate Japan for what they did and their continual denial of the atrocities even though there is so much EVIDENCE.
      You interestingly claim that Korea is a "terrorist" nation when Japan invaded Korea in 1592~1598 under Toyotomi Hideyoshi. The invasion caused hundreds of thousands of lives and an incredible amount of property/cultural damage. Although Toyotomi Hideyoshi's invasion was an ultimate fail, the invasion left Joseon in ruins.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mimizuka
      The Mimizuka is a mound of collected severed ears and noses of Koreans that the Japanese killed as a "token" of the invasion. How cruel, disgusting, and straight up inhumane. You are ironic to call Korea the "terrorist" nation.
