A friend of mine just traveled to Korea (to visit me), and made a very artistic video of it all. I watched it, and was moved by it... it really made me miss the place, and realize that it is quite interesting in a way we tend to overlook after living there for a while... a place which opens up your eyes a little, to a totally different, yet familiar world...
Thanks to "brento1138"; here's the first part:
Let me invite you to travel Korea with me by first stealing you from the city lights to enjoy a strange and different pace underground. The subway was my friend and my enemy.
Within Korean cities I saw neighborhoods of neon and markets of fish. Everyone on the subway is using an electronic device. Children snack on squid. We also visited Tokyo, and looking out from Roppongi Hills we were not able to tell if the city ever ended or if it continued across the entire surface of the planet.
Seoul's residential architecture is unbelievable. To the horizon stretches an ocean of identical concrete boxes. Seeing it made me reflect on the endless sea of Koreans; as a Vancouverite, it is shocking to see a country filled with only one race. You will find uniformity is in Korean living conditions, fashion and actions.

Oh, then there's of course the "Soju Boy" parody of Soulja Boy's "Crank Dat Soulja Boy" Chris in South Korea found. Really? On a recruiter's website? Anyway, I know from time to time there are UCC contests (UCC콘테스트) held by the tourism organization and by other groups, so anybody producing videos about Korea might want to keep their eyes open.
And, finally, it's summer, so as fine a time as any to post this. I can't keep a straight face for the whole thing.
They came around here yesterday, at 7:45 in the goddamn morning.
