  • I wish these moments here because you only get to experience something new

  • once yeah you only get to experience it welcome to Tokyo Tuesday if you're a

  • regular viewer welcome back I'm sitting on the floor today what

  • we're gonna be talking about it a little bit of my experience coming to South

  • Korea for the first time and some of the minor culture shocks now just a little

  • bit of a disclaimer for this one all the opinions stated within this video are

  • just my own and some of the movie Sharla's probably as well for those

  • of you who just stumbled upon the video and this is your first I am originally

  • from Canada but have been living in Japan over 10 years Sharla lives in

  • Japan for 12 years and currently lives in South Korea where I'm visiting her

  • for the first time ever if I want to jump right in I've made a little bit of

  • a list but one of the first things that got me as soon as I came into the

  • country yeah was the dark tinted windows of the car wait I asked my husband he's

  • like yeah that's still really normal here everyone does it like everything

  • except for the windshield dang I wouldn't be surprised at people like

  • even the driver side windows you can't do that in Japan you can't do that in

  • Canada safe driving the second one on the same note of the cars the honking oh

  • the hug you seem coming in from Japan I wasn't used to the constant how Japanese

  • people rarely use their horns like they do in the countryside there weren't like

  • traffic so especially bus drivers not to mention the fact that every bus or large

  • sized vehicle or like corporate vehicle like a taxi is covered in advertisements

  • yeah that feels a lot more like North American it's not like bison sometimes

  • in Japan are covered in corporate advertisements like there was one where

  • they use the tire to make a lens for a Yodobashi camera

  • the brief interruption it looks really good let me show you but oddly enough

  • like the honking and all that doesn't really bother me there's something

  • refreshing in the directness of everything the next one I got me and

  • again not so much like a culture shock but just coming from Japan into Korea I

  • was surprised by the number of like western food option yeah like I came in

  • I saw Quiznos right away Dunkin Donuts and yet at the same time they still have

  • all the very obvious Korean food options yes feels really really mixed and I

  • think that's a really nice segue into it's hard to get a grasp on Seoul coming

  • out here I'm only here for 48 hours just for a very short project time in here

  • feels like you're in Asia but it also feels like you kind of in Toronto yeah

  • that's so true so how do you feel now after a few months I just find it really

  • convenient because whenever I want something they haven't do whether it be

  • something North American or something Korean they've both so living here I

  • find it makes it very comfortable for me someone who's live both in Asia and in

  • North America because they have all the things that I've grown to love over the

  • years I really like that I did not see coming so I can see why you like it I

  • can see why you like that aspect of it there are entire brands that I've

  • forgotten about like brands of car brands of electronics, everything yeah it's not

  • as few there's a lot of like great Korean brands out there that aren't

  • apparent or available in Japan like we were talking yesterday about Kia cars in

  • Hyundai and stuff like that things that you almost never see in Japan

  • yeah you completely forget that they're actually a thing let's put a couple like

  • here there we go but yeah being in Japan what Korean

  • brands are the thing it was interesting to see them coming in here. I was like.. oh yeah Kia

  • cars forgot about those another one that I didn't realize because I've been in

  • Japan for so long is just your comfort level with streets and buildings Oh like

  • I've gotten so used to navigating Japanese streets that I go into a new

  • area and never get long yes I have a sense of direction I know what

  • everything looks like I think he's just coming into a new country we're not

  • familiar with the layout yeah over the place here it's not like a nice grid

  • layout the streets are pretty like I decided to go for a walk like first

  • thing in the morning this morning and was instantly lost yeah I decided to do

  • this like little spin thing with the camera and then I was like oh no I'm not

  • which one yeah one that I should have been prepared for but didn't even think

  • about it power converters and everything that

  • kind of thought of but I wasn't thinking about the plug shake yeah I didn't

  • expect Korea to have a European plug I don't know why that is I found that

  • really interesting I just went out and I bought a converter yeah suck that I had

  • to buy one I brought one but I needed an even work I thought they'd be easy to

  • find but they're not oh so now that you've been here as long as you have how

  • do you feel well I still use mostly Japanese

  • electronics so I need to constantly be using converters and also transformers

  • because bondage is different so it's a paint but

  • like I'm more used to it now than it was for the first week yeah it's just become

  • habit now but yeah I guess I'm the future after we've been living here for

  • a couple years it'll be nice to like switch to Korean electronics so we don't

  • have to do that yeah so I'll put the differences between like Japanese and

  • Korean me here and here now if you're using a device that's rated for like a

  • hundred volts to 240 or 220 volts or something in the range you can still

  • plug it into a crane slot providing you have the plug yeah that fits it you just

  • need to make sure that it is rated for that and make sure because it will light

  • on fire it's not have you had that happen yeah that's one which I'm

  • thinking it might have been nice to start with actually because it's kind of

  • big okay but there's something I saw in you something that I've got you see

  • Charla and I have known each other for well over 15 years and I saw something

  • in Charla that I've never seen before and it was genuine honest fear terrified

  • about getting hit by a car yeah I get the feeling that she sees some stuff so

  • what have you seen well I've only been here for three months and I've already

  • seen I think - taxi crashes and one crash of two regular people like head-on

  • crashing into each other but not only did they just head-on crash into each

  • other one guy just sped off after like totaling the guy's car and our friend

  • they got hit by a car here and like the car destroyed her ribcage and she almost

  • died Wow so like you need to be very careful over the cars here yeah I will

  • say for sure the driving cultures and is likely locked down as I feel it is in

  • like Canada and Japan and whatnot like today we watched a guy completely ignore

  • the red light go over to the other side and then drive through the pedestrian

  • crowd on his motorbike as if it was nothing yeah and they'll go off on the

  • sidewalk too with cars with bites with anything not to mention the number of

  • people I've seen riding motorcycles with no helmet yeah is that like a normal

  • thing it's not normal but they don't enforce their rules as much here like

  • I'm pretty sure it's illegal to do that but again nobody's checking so if people

  • are lazy but they don't wear one I have a huge huge believer in to each their

  • own I believe that these little differences are what make each country

  • unique is the things that I love about it is being able to come to a new

  • country and experience ease like just because driving and honking and all that

  • seems a little more aggressive in Korea doesn't mean that it's in any way like

  • worse or better or anything like that I just I enjoy it enjoyed it it's a change

  • after driving in Canada for as long as I did I felt going and driving in Japan

  • was a really nice change because it felt very safe although super crowded people

  • will wave you in people don't really Hall yeah there's a conscious and

  • considerate driving culture here it's just like I'm going don't get hit by me

  • and it works though because like everyone is driving with that mentality

  • I am sure that if I was gonna here a little bit longer there would be so many

  • other cultures but before I wrap this up before I wrap this up Sharla I just

  • remember that there was one more one more really big one both of us speak

  • Japanese so it has been so long since I actually felt helpless

  • yeah and unable to communicate in another country yeah it's a different

  • feeling like lots of things that we needed language phone calls just but

  • everyone was so named so helping without the language word

  • able to get through it so it took a little time but is there anything that

  • students you at the beginning and after a few months living in Korea still

  • stands out now if I click the biggest difference is both like strangers and

  • like workers at shops wanting to have like genuine conversations with me so I

  • think like I was really shocked at that at first I was like oh maybe this person

  • is just like really nice but then literally everyone wants to talk to me

  • and like ask me where I'm from either in Korean or English sometimes we'll just

  • come up to me and Koreans speak to me in Korean but I think it's nice it's a nice

  • change it's cool that they're curious I had an experience like that last night I

  • got back to my hotel area like really late it was like 12:30 at night and I

  • was about to just just head in and do some work and there were guys sitting

  • outside there I can't come and drink with us and story why do I have had that

  • in Japan mm-hmm I have had especially during the holiday season you know

  • colleagues down cut it does happen and it tends to happen a lot more when

  • you're new I think you give something off when you're new yeah you and excited

  • million you got that you got that new excited fresh foreigner smell right that

  • might be why because I've got the fresh foreigner smell in Korea yeah right

  • you're like wide eyed bushy tail everything exciting I feel like you put

  • that out there and it like brings but I wish you could hold on to that forever

  • yeah yeah like I wish these moments here because you only get to experience

  • something new ones yeah you only get to experience a new place once and then

  • it's not new anymore and so I wanted to put this all into

  • this for you guys but more for me so someday I can look back at this and be

  • like huh that was strange to me back then probably now or maybe there's

  • something even more shocking than this guys thank you so much as always for
