Nicholalala Webtoon episode: It Hurts 0

Read the final episode in this mini story within the webtoon HERE.

I wanted this story to have an unhappy ending because I do get frustrated with the story-lines of drama webtoons and Korean dramas on TV. When the handsome lead guy breaks up with the girl there is always some reason: he is trying to protect her, his mother forced him too, he thinks he doesn’t deserve her. It’s all nonsense and gives young girls unrealistic expectations about relationships when the reality is that people will break up with you and there is no hidden reason, they simply aren’t in love with you anymore. Story-lines in these romance webtoons and dramas also allow the guy to be quite harsh and abusive to the girl but in the end it’s all okay because he still loves her and was trying to “protect” her. His bad behaviour isn’t called into question at all. I want people to know that it’s not okay for someone to hurt you like that and there isn’t some hidden reason for why you should accept that type of behaviour. The good news is that even if the guy who you thought was the romantic hero in your life doesn’t want to be with you anymore, you will be okay and you will move on and you will meet someone better.

TRYING WEIRD KOREAN CHIPS 0

Sara joins us to try these more unusual chip flavours. We had never seen them before and we wonder how long they will last in stores…

A note about YouTube. Firstly there is a subscribers glitch. Lots and lots of active subscribers are being unsubscribed from channels so make sure you are still subscribed to us here.

Also, as well as having a bunch of glitches at the moment, YouTube is also favouring videos that have interaction immediately. We’ve hardly ever asked for likes on YouTube before but now it seems we have to. So if you watch our videos, hitting that like button (and also commenting) really helps us out and determins if YouTube will suggest our videos to other viewers. Thanks!

What Colour? 4

What colour

Just Hugh trolling me to make it seem like I was being offensive. Thanks Hugh.

Random fact of the day from Wikipedia: Uzbekistan has an ethnic Korean population that was forcibly relocated to the region by Stalin from the Soviet Far East in 1937–1938. 

Actually the Wikipedia page for Uzbekistan is really interesting. Uzbekistan is Central Asia’s most populous country. The demographic section is fascinating.

I went down the Wikipedia wormhole because I was suddenly curious about Uzbekistan while making this comic.

PROTESTING THE PRESIDENT 0

We have always known President Park was a likely a puppet (her father was previously a president and a dictator) and we knew cults influenced so much of Korea but it’s shocking to see the extent of it. The corruption is everywhere and Choi Soon-sil, a cult leader, has had a dangerous amount of power over the president. She has had so much influence over everything (everything from dressing the president to rewriting her speeches) and the corruption runs deep.  We have heard firsthand accounts from friends of what she has been doing. She tried to take over important Korean cultural centers to make into her own restaurants (paper businesses for embezzling money), literally walked into them and tried to fire people on the spot. These are important places for traditional Korean culture not only for Koreans but foreigners to experience. This is just one incident of many. Choi Soon-sil has no respect for Korea, uses it as her personal playground and all with the permission of the president. South Koreans are sick of the corruption in politics and are horrified to learn how much corruption there really is. President Park’s approval rating is at an all-time low of 5% and possibly anyone still supporting her only does because they benefit financially. The whole world is a worrying place at the moment which is why going to the protests is important to us.
