Joan used as much as English possible lol.. it seems like words like “rich”is acceptable to use from all the English they use in Korea in advertisements and whatnot. Joan demonstrated in the video that you don’t need a lot of words or phrases to have a “conversation” in korean and how you can use the influx of English to your advantage lol ( if you don’t know how to say it in korean, try saying it in English and assume the korean person knows it. This strategy was surprisingly viable here since Joan was talking about skincare and English is rampant in Korea ) . i think it’s kinda encouraging to korean learners lol because it shows them how having a conversation in korean isn’t a big deal lol. You just need to understand the person somewhat and recycle 3 phrases lol Now if the conversation was between Joan and 2/3 native korean speakers then Joan would be f’ed since they will say shit she doesn’t understand
I don’t get why she included the footage of her peeling the peaches. It looks like she’s carving the peach lol. People are obviously going to criticize her skills. I’m sure her mom peels them beautifully though lol..
it shocked me that she specifically featured it in the vlog and she’s completely unaware of how it comes off to people. Or maybe she doesn’t give a shit and only cares about getting footage for her vlog of her boring, unproductive life. She doesn’t seem like a 29 year old for a multitude of reasons . She needs to stop being so damn lazy.
For that housewarming video (the one about being jetlegged) besides not knowing the word for housewarming in Korean, I thought the dinner she prepared was extremely depressing. she bought a bunch of premade food from the convenience store ( unless it’s some fancy sandwich store... wasn’t really paying attention) and snacks, took them out of the packaging, and set them up on dishes. And of course she raves about the snack as you can tell by her face I don’t think she cooked anything. Does she not know how to cook or is she just lazy?? She sure seems to obsess over her nails while putting in zero effort towards learning korean or speaking English properly, cooking etc... Is that normal in korea?? I don’t know I’d feel if I was served that. I found it depressing and it reminded me of that scene in mrs. doubtfire i don’t understand what was going through her mind with the housewarming gift exchange. Why would you use a korean word you don’t know in an English sentence to demonstrate that you don’t know the word??? She always shoots herself in the foot. She could’ve just said thanks, look up the word later or ask, then sub it properly . Guess she really doesn’t want to learn korean. She literally avoids looking up words even when there are obvious clues that her understanding of the word is incorrect when her friend straight up corrected her. Guess she’s allergic to the dictionary . I’m sure her phones language is still set to English
she already knows about food but she has no discipline to ever really implement it. She has so made acne tip videos and folllwos none of her own tip. She doesn’t really give a shot about her skin... she buys overpriced skincare products and not appply enough sunscreen and eats shit frequently. It’s obvious that her skin could be much better if she actually tried harder but she’s lazy as we all know. What other youtuber makes this many get ready/unready/ with me , and skincare videos with alarming frequency. Maybe we would genuinely care if she had amazing skin but she has worse skin than people who are the same age as her who aren’t even into skincare
refinery burned her good. I’m assuming Joan has no idea how they filmed her until they put the video up... I think she’d look slightly better if her eyebrows weren’t black. Not sure what color eyebrows would go with that hair color though
Joan doesn’t follow any of her own skin/acne tips. What else is new. What a hippo ( hypocrite). I don’t understand how she has the nerve to make tips she doesn’t even follow herself. How does she even know they make a difference when she doesn’t have the discipline to follow them for more than a day lol
Haha that reminds me of the time when Joan said she might try reading the korean version of a korean novel that she read the English translation for. I think it was WHITE by hangkang (흰 - 한강) Don’t think it ever happened. It’s pretty obvious she would struggle to keep up with elementary school students during korean language class in public school let alone read a novel unless you consider understand 50% of a novel as “reading” a novel. She couldn’t even read a book of quotes by tablo. She said she understood 70% ( probably only read the English version and opens the korean one from time to time to post it to Instagram lol) and I wouldn’t be surprised if she was overestimating lol. She can’t even be bothered to speak proper English let alone improve her korean despite having a lot of free time. She has time to get her nails done like every other day it seems but no time to improve her korean ( little efforts add up to something significant ). Her phone is PROBABLY STILL SET TO ENGLISH. She didn’t even understand what shuffle (임의 재생i n korean) meant
