Ask Korean Guys with Jongdae 2

In this Ask Korean Guys, Hugh sits down with Jongdae who is another YouTuber to talk about high school and how it might be different going to school in Seoul compared to the countryside, and their personal experiences.

The school Hugh is talking about is actually the one near our house and you can see it in the latest vlog:

The Sink Incident 24

The Sink Incident

So this really happened! Simon and Martina have recently moved to a new apartment and when we came to stay they wanted Hugh to check the ondol heating because it wasn’t working. We ended up getting the apartment guy to have a look and there was a problem. While he had his head under the sink, this gross brown water suddenly started spurting up. But it wasn’t poo! Don’t worry. It was rust water. Apparently the previous owner had never cleaned out this thing. It was pretty bad. The sink was about to overflow and the dishes in the sink were getting covered by rust water and the animals were waiting to get fed. But while all this was happening, Simon was in the living room uploading videos. Now, he could see us, and he could hear us, but he ignored it all! And then finally when we wanted a reaction from him, he was more excited about finding the remote under the sofa cushion. You are no help at all Simon!

Hugh is now WEARING this jacket in videos now. At least it was kinda clean for this video.

Changing for the Countryside 18

Change for the Countryside (800x800)

Our life is a bit strange now because we can go to Seoul for a weekend and hang out with very cool people and have some amazing experiences and then we come back to the countryside and literally back to a rural village full of old people.

While it’s not like we dress up a lot in Seoul, something as simple as a spiky earring can be worn in Seoul but Mr Gwon is not comfortable wearing it around his friends out in the countryside. Especially friends he grew up with. Right away they make comments on it and tell him it’s stupid. People wear completely different clothes out here and can be more judgmental if it doesn’t fit in with what they think is good. Being a huge city, Seoul is a place where people can really experiment with fashion, but it’s pretty different in other areas of Korea.

The funniest aspect of this is that Mr Gwon’s countryside friends will try to dictate to him what is fashionable at the moment. One friend told him that his haircut is out of fashion now and that is was fashionable 2 years ago. Never mind that many people, including celebrities, have this type of haircut right now or that it’s about what suits the face more than what is considered cool, these friends seem to want to force everyone else to dress like them.

Have you had experiences like this? Have you moved away and when you’ve come back to your hometown people want to criticise what you are wearing and how you look?

Roller Door 2

Roller Door

Pride comes before a fall…. or a hit on the head from a roller door.

I’ve hit my head on this door several times. Han did it right before we filmed that G-Dragon fashion video as well, you can actually see a bump coming up in some shots.

Kiwi Fruit! 6

Hey guys, we just harvested our kiwi fruit and this year we are giving people the opportunity to buy directly from us (if you in Korea). We harvest once a year, so once these ones are gone, no more until next year. (Also they are organic!)

Kiwi Fruit4Kiwi Fruit3

We sell kiwis by the box (10kg) and price depends on the size of the kiwi fruit.

Box of small size kiwis: ₩15,000. Box of medium size kiwis: ₩20,000. Box of large size kiwis: ₩25,000. Box of extra large size kiwis: ₩30,000. Postage is ₩5000 but there is also the pick up option if you are in the area. (We also usually put an extra kilo of kiwis in the box for “service”).

Email Mr Gwon if you’d like to buy some (email is on contact page) or you can Facebook message him.

We can only send to addresses in Korea! (Also these kiwis are just harvested so are still firm, meaning they will stay fresh for several weeks. To ripen you can put some in a bag with an apple or banana and that will ripen them up ready for eating).

Making Bread 10

Making Bread

That’s why we have a bread maker… because we don’t have an oven…

So as I’ve mentioned, normal Korean homes don’t have ovens. It slipped my mind when I asked for an oven mitt. Of course there isn’t one! There are other things for handling hot pans on stove tops of course but for some reason not in our house… even the tea towel we used was one that I had sent from Australia as a gift. I really miss having a drawer full of fresh clean tea towels! The things you end up missing while in another country…

When we do eventuality get our own place I will be able to have tea towels!

You can see some of the bread making in yesterday’s vlog.

It would be great if you subscribed to the vlogging channel. It’s free!
