    The countryside of Japan is really beautiful, I know that a lot people struggle with wanting to do the JET program specifically because they don't want to be in the countryside or will use other countries as stepping stones, but tbh I think it's something you should go for if you can - it's a good experience. Even Sharla recommended living in the countryside if you can for a while. Japan has a lot unique cultural aspects and most of it is all in the countryside so I hope Micaela will show them like temples, shrines, local food, cultural products, etc. I miss the times when the jvloggers actually showcased japan lol

    She didn't photoshop those herself. In korea when you take professional photos, usually the photographer edits them for you - hence the shooping looks off. Even to get my resume and passport photos taken here they edited the shit out of them. Sometimes people's photos are so heavily edited they barely look like the person, I'm surprised government okays it for passport photos but I guess I'm just used the strict western passport rules.
    There's nothing wrong with assimilating into a culture, but there's just a line when it becomes obsessive or just odd. If you were not born and raised in Korea, it just off putting if you say "i feel like i'm korean!!" If she was mixed or Korean American, I'd get it but otherwise it's just odd imo. There's plenty of foreigners that come to Korea and can speak pretty good to fluent Korean but don't change who they are. There's a Korean tv show Non-Summit which features Korean fluent foreigners but all of them still dress/act/behave as they always had (Tyler Rasch, Zhang Yuan, Daniel Snoeks, etc) - none of them went off into lala land saying "I'm feel like i'm korean!!!". (Same thing with the old old old tv show Chit Chat with the Beautiful Ladies that had Korean fluent women)
    Maybe we're just nit picking, but it just feels like crossing the line into delusional land. You're a foreigner, you always will be a foreigner and it's okay to enjoy the culture, but you can't really ever claim that you're "part" of it.

    god she's such a diva, I feel sorry for people who have to be around her
    And yea she's a Koreaboo, she specifically came to Korea to try to get famous. She even said in a video she used the teaching gig to get her into the country so she could go find something else along entertainment.
    There's foreigners in Korea that can speak good Korean as well, they're just not easy find in the pool of people temporarily teaching or in the military
    She sounds like Mira and her whole "I CAN BE JAPANESE TOO"

    I don't think Taylor was trying to be down right malicious, I just think Taylor has a terrible and very awkward sense of humor, and so it just rubs off really bad. Anytime she tries to be funny, it just fails lol
    Anytime she tries to be funny, it's just seems forced, stupid, and awkward to watch. I always feel second hand embarrassment for her lol. Especially in that IKEA video with the cart.... god what was she thinking 
    It could be because she's not a very social person and just hasn't a lot friends, so seems like she's pretty shit at reading situations or the atmosphere. Or this is Taylor trying to mold herself into her a new phase and humor is the new ingredient for it... it's just not natural for her lol
    Poor Venus must be thinking..

    Did she really say 7 years? (i just skipped around in the video)
    She visited her family a couple of years ago, there's even a video of it with her parents (and sister??) and she brought them a bunch of korean snacks

    lmao she's not sorry, she's still making up excuses for the idubz incident
    The whole point of idubzz making the video was to ALSO prove she lies in ALL her videos. Why is she only apologizing just for this one incident? She makes it out as if this ONE story with idubzz was her only video with embellished details
    This apology video is on the same level as Mira's apology video lmao
    She's sorry she got caught by a better youtuber, I hope he destroyed her youtube career like Leafy

    Tanning was just hella popular every where years ago, even in America. A lot girls in my high school and work spent tons of money going to tanning salons or whatever. It was just because being tan looks like you have a "healthy" glow or just the general trend. 
    I'm Norwegian and I'm glow in the dark pale, but thankfully I never did tanning lol I think fake tans are so tacky. I even hated that Japanese ganguro trend

    Sharla got out unscathed because Mira technically committed the bigger sin - making fake accounts to ruin the reputations of jvlogglers. I think if Mira released the (edited) texts during the scandal; no one would care and would just see as her desperately trying to save her own ass or it would come off as she knows she's guilty. On top of that, in the texts she self incriminated herself by confirming to Sharla that it was her that made puppet accounts to ruin Rachel's reputation on a few videos. OR if she did release the texts, Sharla could've clap back by releasing the self incriminating messages from Mira. The main Jvloggers never told us how they knew it was Mira, they kept it a secret, we didn't know she self incriminated herself via text until a year and half later
    Mira will forever play the victim because she's a liar and delusional. Being in the public just isn't for her, and this poor girl needs help

    girl is just sorry she got caught. People have called her out for years but it finally took a bigger youtuber than her to get it out. People even warned her to not mess with idubz. She should've apologized for her lies months ago. She deserves everything she gets at this point

    It's impossible for Mira to ever be able to claim "I'm one of them", there's just so many nuances and tiny cultural details she'll never understand since she never GREW UP in Japan. A non-Japanese person who was born and raised in Japan will have a deeper understanding of the culture than Mira, or someone is half Japanese. Nor has Mira ever experienced the good/bad of the culture while growing up in Japan, so no idea how she thinks she has the audacity to claim to be part of a culture that she wasn't raised in. Mira experiences Japan as a foreigner, and she always will, and Mira will be forever treated as a foreigner. Get over it Mira.
    She's either severly delusional or has a mental illness and needs help

    I'm not sure what Carson does in Korea outside of hanging with Megan since I don't follow any of her social media, but I saw her in a Korean movie once for 1 small scene lol I was pretty shocked to see her in it haha
    Megan is pretty much a diva imo lol

    I kinda liked the video, she seemed more normal in this one
    but if you're gonna go to Kyoto I'd recommend going to the temples or traditional areas lol
    My favorite area was Hanamachi - it has the okiya's (geisha houses) and traditional tea houses and restaurants
