We Are Moving to Japan

  • Added:  Year ago
  • This is something we've been thinking about doing for a long time, and it's not something that we can delay for much longer. While we still can, we're going to take this opportunity and follow a dream of ours that we've had for a very long time. We're moving to Japan.

    okay. i'm this kind of old viewers but not subscribed eyk yt channel yet, but i watched quite a lot of your videos, so you can consider me as alien viewer 😞
    so yeah.
    i watched this video and i feel sorry and sad about martina's condition, excited for your new journey, and of course envy for... the love that you guys pour to each other, about the life goals and brave steps that you guys take, feel thankful for every information and laugh that you bring through the videos.
    i hope both of you can live for a looooong time together happily or crazily (?), up to you. i will always love you.

    I'm commenting about 11 months after your move to Japan. To be honest, I was sad that you were going to leave Korea, and also that Martina's condition continue to develop this way. But after watching your videos in Japan, I realized that I was very closed minded, and in a way selfish. I'm very happy for all the things you are pursuing and discovering in Japan. I still don't understand your condition Martina, but from what I understand it's hard to do things on your bad days. But at the same time, you don't want people to throw you pity parties. I am just so encouraged to see you still do videos and pursue different things when you have bad days, and I flop on the couch when I'm feeling tired. I'll try to pursue things like you do, and not give up so easily. I'm so happy that I became a part of this Nasty family, you guys bring me joy through each video release, and I just want to thank you. Love you guys!!

    this is a dream which is unfortunately become true. A dream that will turn into nightmare soon. Because the japanese people do not accept the "gaijins" in their society, most of them considering the foreigners like lepers and outcasts , and their country have a policy of "15 hours of work or more per day", many ridiculous rules that they must follow, and so they will have nor friends (excepted maybe the other "gaijins" that live in japan too), nor fun time. live in japan is like to be in a spider's web. each day an insect lost a piece until that the spider devore it alive, for them, it will be the joy to live and the faith to the humanity (because the japan is a country of bad tastes) and i think that south korea is a more nicer country for westerners. But if want to spoil their live in a country which deserve only to be visited as tourists, that's their choice, not the ours.

    • gam ledda
      gam ledda 7 months ago

      +SweetJet i forgot to tell you before the year ends, you should tell me earlier that they worked for YouTube.  maybe we would avoid The conflict we had, but maybe we're going to start over.  I was right. Despite  these particular rules, they are lucky persons who  live  in a  hellish society. Even working for YouTube is a question of luck. i live in a country that would only deserve to be visited too, but it's just that i always lived in this country and this  country  obsess many japanese people . i will repeat the same things , that's their problem if they live in an rigid and exigeant society, they have their manners to spoil their live, okay , and i'm not a fan of them anyway. Japan is normally a  nightmarish country to live in, (the ones who say they live there well have a problem), not more than others, but more than  my country.

      +gam ledda Yes. That's what they do for a living. Hell, that's what most Youtube channels do for a living. Their content makes them money. So, they do work for Youtube.

    I first started watching your videos way back when I was in high school and now, as 6-7 years go by, I feel like I'm understanding the value of your perspective on life on a much different, more profound level. Your story is so inspiring and watching your videos when I'm feeling down and when I'm feeling like I can't move from this spot in life reminds me to always face life with my chin up and remember to think of possibilities instead of the impossibilities.

    Now it makes more sense, I'm glad you guys replied to me so I was able to watch this vid and understand your somewhat hasty decision to leave SK and start anew in a new country. I've always had a thing for Japan - anime having something to do with it, of course - and came to love SK through Kpop 6 years ago. This is somehow my dream as well, not the whole "hopping from one country to another" like you guys mentioned but at least travel as much as I can and hopefully move somewhere else - again, since I previously lived in the States - and get out of my comfort zone and reinvent myself. I seriously hope your condition gets better rather than worse Martina, you guys seem like optimistic folks, cling onto that hope that you *will* get better and your current EDS condition will disappear and you'll get to walk, run, climb as vividly as you've always had. Wish you guys the best on your journey and more other adventures to come!

    Martina you have such a loving husband, it surprises me! You are so fortunate to have someone that loves you so dearly, and is willing to take care of you on your bad days. I have a couple ruptured discs in my spine, my spinal canal is narrowing, and I have arthritis in my spine, and it all started when I was 25. I'm 31 now, and I'm in as much pain as ever. It's extremely debilitating, as I cannot get out of bed on some days. I totally understand how you feel. I live in a house with stairs, and I don't have anyone to help me, and it's becoming a daily struggle to get up, and down the stairs. It's actually getting worse. Sometimes I feel like a hikikomori, because I don't go anywhere for days at a time. I truly hope for the best for you, and I hope someday you will be able to be pain free, and travel the world with no worries. You seem like such an amazing couple, and I so admire that in you both. I wish I could find a husband like Simon! You're such a great team! Best wishes to you! 💟
