    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

    google "chicken egg abuse" and you'll see what she's talking about. Essentially chickens live extremely small shitty conditions. And since male chicks are considered useless they end up getting thrown into a grinder.

    Then how about posting a photo of yourself and let us judge you for ourselves?
    Calling someone ugly is petty, shallow, and immature. People can't choose how they're born or what genes they get. So sorry that the universe didn't give Mimei or whoever an aesthetically pleasing face for your eyes 
    how old are you lol

    That mall (Coex Mall) is in a really rich area, it's at SamSung station so the whole area is pretty nice. Usually there's a lot special events that happen there too like the annual Beer Festival, and not too long ago LuLuLemon hosted a yoga event and had MC Yogi come and perform. The theater is hella nice, but if they wanted to see a movie then should reserve seats a day or two ahead haha. Also, it's one of the biggest malls in Asia, but actually most foreigners hate and complain about Coex a lot because the layout makes no sense, it's pretty much a massive maze so they had to install tons of digital map stations all over. I'm surprised Sharla/bf didn't go to BongEunsa Temple behind the mall, it's pretty nice place to visit. Also, if Sharla wants more choices in vegan food (or any vegans here that plan to visit Seoul in the future) then she should go Itaewon (the military/foreigner area)
    I think the comments about Sharla's weight are beyond petty and shallow. She's not fat nor overweight by any means, if you think so then you have a pretty delusional and distorted view of one's body. Even if she was overweight, I don't think it's something a person should be shamed for.
    But I can understand people complaining about her content, it's really nice seeing a blogger discover a new place like what she's doing in Seoul. The main jvlogger clique of girls have gotten redundant - just a bunch of girls daily vlogging their normal average life but IN JAPAN!!!! I appreciate Rachel going out doing interviews and more unique ideas, or AbroadinJapan (whos probably my favorite vlogger) traveling and showing new places. The original jvlogger group used to showcase Japan and it's uniqueness a lot a long time ago - I don't know what happened. I still prefer Sharla's main channel since that's her travel stuff - too bad she's not more active on it. I still dont know what the point of Taylors/Kim Dao/Bii's videos were. If I could give her any advice, it'd be to do videos like she used to do :shrugs: but she's been in Japan for like 10 years so I guess the enthusiasm and passion are gone

    So I guess there's gonna be 2 youtube Hanami parties?? since I can't see them all getting together anymore, which is kind of sad...
    In a way, I kind of agree with Viktor about the group - the lack of community, the cliques, too big for it's own good, etc. It was nice when they all got along, or at least tolerated each other, to get together for Hanami. A bunch of weird shit and energy changed among them within the past 2 years and I don't think it's fixable 
    I know there was a couple of members here that brought up and mentioned that the Sharla/Taylor/Kim/Bii/etc clique seemed to be excluding newer people lovelymilky/Emily and what not, which I hope isn't the case but it seems like that's what Viktor is confirming.
    I think it's good he's brought it up to everyone's attention, but I don't think it's fixable
    I miss the old jvlogger community. Now it's just a select few actually showcasing Japan and a bunch of girls/makeup gurus showing their basic normal lives on camera with the only speciality of them being in Japan

    Yea as I said, if she's getting money off of these "investments", someone is helping her or more than likely doing all the work for her. My major was economics and we had to do one of those fake stock simulators for a class and that shit is hard lol. People who purely live off of stocks are pretty rare. Even my Econ professors hired advisers for their investments, so I guess it's pretty obvious its her bf (if he is into finance) is doing it for her. I'm curious to what her investments are lol. On top of that, to make money off investments, you need a lot money to begin with; so probably got it from her dad and/or maybe the bf contributed a bit. 
    Taylor is lying from omission. If she wants people to stop assuming or questioning her, it'd just be easier to tell the truth, it'd be a lot easier than hiding it.
    But please, Taylor, keep telling us how you got sooooooooooooo much money from catalogue modeling and youtube lmao
