Am I the only one who finds their YouTube videos the equivalent of nails on a chalkboard?..Seriously.. the annoying voices (why does the man always sound slightly gay?), the stupid mannerisms and facial expressions, the clown college outfits, the gushing over garbage K-pop..

Take this video they made on how "cheap" Korea can be..

Their information is just wrong and misleading so many levels...For example, who the hell would want to eat at Kimbok Cheonguk seven days a week??

They are Koreaboos. I was also under the impression that the guy was a homosexual until I saw they were married.

Agreed about how some of the info is misleading. It's funny how some foreigners here think they know everything, when most of their knowledge is actually 100% wrong.

Are you the only one who dislikes them? Yes.

Everyone here loves them. Marinas facial expressions while not talking are not retarded. They are endearing.

I just don't get how they can be in Korea for so long and still be so damn fobby.

I think they're so lame, but to their credit, they did get people to give them $100,000 to continue posting YouTube vids.

"I don't like how they comport themselves and their opinions and interests don't parallel mine closely enough."

You seem to be pretty put out because they aren't your cup of tea, but if they weren't *someone's* cup of tea I doubt their business would sustain itself.

Just because it isn't yours doesn't make them reprehensible bastards. If they don't float your boat don't watch them. It really is that simple.

OR, if deeeeep deep down, by some chance, your irritation is actually rooted in envy that people less deserving than yourself are enjoying a modicum of success, then start writing and filming and get some of that Youtube money yourself!
...and then give me some... Razz

So, what you're saying is that if I dye my hair pink and record myself in my concrete box talking about Shinee and Big Bang's new albums and how awesome it is that can buy 1,500 rolls of kimbab in Korea while making asshat facial expressions and then add some laser effects on a video software program later and upload it to Youtube that I can also be rich and famous too?

You forgot to mention the crooked fringe cut. But yes, do all those things and riches await ye.

I'm not a fan, but hey, at least they aren't teaching in dead end hagwon jobs like so many here.

Why are some of you taking their YouTube videos so seriously? They're YouTube famous, they need to come up with corny ideas for that YouTube money.

You're just making them money every time you watch one of their videos. Ignore them, or as someone said, play the game and act the foreign fool and get on the gochujang train.

Never met any NETs that find them enjoyable, but I have met more than a few Koreans who like 'em. Go figure
