    Nah, eat your kimchi is hater. They went to Korea only because they could not go to Japan.
    They became big cuz of Korean fans and people who love Korea, so they made huge amount of money.
    They quit their job which was English teacher, and opened cafe in Korea.
    But, when it was finally time that they are able to move to Japan, they left Korea and made video that saying why Japan is better than Korea even though they know how this statement is going to make Korean people angry because of their history and culture.
    (having a sponsor which is Japanese company lol)
    The video generally says all the bad things about Korea, but cool things about Japan
    Comparing 8yrs of life in Korea to several months of life in Japan..
    Comparing cultures even though cultures can’t be judged as superior or inferior
    What a logical! 😉
    What a great Youtuber with great personality! *clap*
