    Totally agree.
    I have been learning English as a second language for my whole life (and I really mean my whole life...not like Sharla's "13" years) and I still have a slight accent. Certainly not the typical Puerto Rican accent but an accent nonetheless.
    I still sometimes mispronounce words. Like pronouncing ship like sheep. And vice versa. 
    I didn't even know that "ch" and "sh" were said differently in words like chip and ship. My husband had to explain it to me. lol
    (He's from PR as well but he studied in a school that is in an American military base so his school was 100% English. And he was taught by Americans so he has no accent. I sometimes joke that English is his first language instead of Spanish.)
    I'll also sometimes pronounce words that use the "th" with an "s" if I'm talking too fast. Like srough instead of through. 

    So yeah, fluency in a language isn't necessarily connected to having an accent or not.
    English is very different than Japanese so I don't really think we should criticize her for having an accent.

    However, criticizing that she doesn't seem to have basic Korean knowledge that you would expect someone married to a Korean to know is totally different.
    I certainly find it incredibly odd that she didn't even know what Koreans say before a meal.
    It would have been totally different if she had asked her to say it because she always gets the pronunciation wrong so she wanted to hear it beforehand.

    Does she actually know but acts clueless for some reason?

    What is Sunny wearing? Some jeans and a blouse?
    WOW!! So fashionable!! <--sarcasm
    Sharla can easily wear comfortable clothes that don't make her look like she's just gonna be lounging in her apartment.
    Stretchy jeans and simple blouses and button down shirts worn with some flats or nicer looking, more fashionable sneakers....that's all.
    There are PLENTY of comfortable shoes that aren't sneakers.
    And there are some hoodies that are kinda like jackets that, well, feel like hoodies but look a bit nicer because they look like jackets.
    I have a couple myself. lol
    It's very easy to dress like an adult woman without having a lot of fashion sense.
    You don't have to dress like a fashion model nor wear a lot of accessories or anything like that. 
    Jeans, blouses and flats are everyday clothes. The shirts and blouses don't have to have to be all showy or flashy. 
    It's just wearing simple clothes that make you look put together (and your age) without putting a lot of effort into your outfit.
    And the excuse that it was hard in Japan to find clothes is bs because she travels to Canada.
    She can easily just shop for the majority or a big portion of her clothes when she's in Canada. Js.
    If she can ship all those Pokemon plushies to Canada, she can shop for her whole wardrobe in Canada and take some back with her in her luggage and ship the rest.
    That being said, I don't think we should be acting as though her now living in Korea means anything fashion-wise for her as of right now.
    Sunny is wearing blouses and jeans, so clearly the weather is fine for those type of clothes, but Sharla just got to Korea so it's not like her wardrobe is gonna magically change in a month or so.
    Sweater weather is ending soon so she will have to ditch the hoodies.
    Then we shall see if Korea does influence her style (but I don't have high hopes, tbh. I think we should just accept that Sharla is frumpy).

    Yep.
    It doesn't mean white.

    Where I'm from white is not synonymous to Caucasian, as it is in America.
    White is having light skin. That's it.
    You can have full siblings where one is light skinned and the other is darker skinned (because they're mixed) and one would be called white and the other black or [email protected] Because it's not a racial thing. It's just a description of their look.

    This whole Caucasian = white is an American thing that, unfortunately, is being propagated to the rest of the world.

    Regarding the modeling video, I honestly didn't think she didn't want to be filmed at all.
    Not wanting your face to appear on video doesn't mean you mind being filmed talking.
    To me she sounded stiff/weird because clearly English isn't her first language and, although she can speak it, she still has some problems with it, not because she didn't want to be filmed.

    Today's video was worse than the modeling one, imo. Pretty boring and pointless.

    I thought something similar but it would be so incredibly stupid for her to do such a thing.
    Why would anyone with half a brain purposely embarrass and make themselves look bad in front of real people all to troll a bunch of people in the internet she doesn't even know?

    Doing it to troll us is just as stupid as genuinely having gone dressed like that and not even consider that there may be a dresscode (because the end result is the same, she still went incredibly under dressed).

    To be honest, this whole thing just makes me think she's even more pathetic and immature than I previously thought.

    I don't really see why she should get rid of her plushies. 
    She isn't the first and she won't be the last adult with a plushy collection.
    Lots of adults collect plushies, action figures, dolls, those Funko Pops, etc. It doesn't mean they are immature or unprofessional.
    Sharla's problems are other stuff, not the fact that she collects plushies.
    I would say her problems are more things like her personality, how she talks/expresses herself, how most of her interests seem superficial, how she keeps lying about certain verifiable things, etc. 

    Anyway, what bothered me the most of this latest video is her trying to feed a banana to her cats.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I was under the impression that Sharla and him got married a while back. Like at least a year ago maybe even more, no?
    So if I'm right their marriage has nothing to do with their move to Korea.

    I remember her saying she doesn't play the games.
    My reaction was "WTF?" when I heard her say it.
    How can you be so obsessed with something but not be into it at all? (I hope you understand what I mean with that. You know, she not playing the games or anything.)
    I thought she was a Pokemon diehard fan because of how much she talks about it.
    But, nope, it's just another thing she superficially likes because "omg you guyzzz, they're soooo cuuute!!"

    YES!
    Even if she had had both of the cats before being with him, they got married so the cats become both of theirs.
    It becomes a shared responsibility.
    Like you said, he gonna starve them if she goes away for a few days?
    He won't take them to the vet if she's not there because they aren't his?
    That's not how it works.

    I hope if she has multiple kids she isn't like that with them.
    Blatant favoritism sucks.

    So is it me or does her face look stupidly edited in her Pokemon lucky bag thumbnail?? 
    Still haven't finished watching it but had to comment on that thumbnail. lol
    I don't know how much she usually edits her face on her thumbnails but this one just stood out sooo much to me.

    I thought the same....sponges? A sandwich container? Wtf?
    But to be fair, his gifts were shitty, too.
    I'm wondering if they usually just buy what they want at the moment so when special occasions/dates come they don't really have much to gift each other.
    I know that's how it is with my husband and me.
    I got my "Christmas" gift a couple weeks before the official date. And my husband won't get his until February when it's back in stock. 
    We didn't get each other anything on the actual 25th. At least they actually gave each other something. lol

    Am I missing something?
    What the heck does that have to do with her being into natural health? 
    Even if she is into natural health, it doesn't mean she has to be a crazy hippy extremist that won't even wear a pony tail because reasons.

    Yeah, he did not seem like he like the gifts at all.

    But, then again, I'm very awkward and very not expressive. 
    Even if I love the gift I was given or am very grateful, I usually don't show it (except to my husband because he's the only person I feel completely comfortable with).
    I quite often force myself to show emotion because I don't want to give people the wrong idea. Like I don't want people to think I didn't like their gift.
    I wonder if he's kinda like that? But being in front of the camera makes it even worse?

    Also, he is a hairstylist, right? And he has always given me the vibe of being a metro-sexual. So I can actually totally see him liking those gifts. lol
    I mean, he reacted the same way to the game and he plays video games.
    But, then again, he didn't seem to know anything about the game so maybe he wasn't actually interested in the game either?

    Idk. I don't want to speculate too much into their relationship because I know my husband would be stupidly awkward in front of the camera and I can totally see people getting the wrong image of our relationship because of it.

    I totally agree but, well, that can't happen because they need that new laptop so that her husband can edit the cat videos. lol
    Also, Patreon just changed their fees policy. I wonder how that will affect her pledges. She doesn't offer good incentives so I can see many more dropping out.

    All the while she posts cat videos without issues on her own channel. lol
    Again, why do they need a new computer for cat videos?
    Can't they share a computer? Can't he use his gaming one?
    I use my husband's gaming computer for editing the photos I take. And sometimes videos I take too.
    Why can't he use his own?

     lolStuff like that has happened to me before.It doesn't matter if you're being nice and explicitly say that you like the vlogger, you still said something critical about them or pointed something out (that many fans don't like when it is mentioned) so you're obviously a hater, a troll, etc.And then they dare say that they're not crazy fangirls. Sure. lol Apparently if you like people you cannot, under any circumstances, be critical or judgemental towards them. Not even a tiny bit. Can't point out shortcomings or faults either. You have to put blinders on and only see that they're amazing and perfect.Even if they probably won't even read the comments you're posting, you should only post praises. I would understand if the comment left is hateful, full of insults, etc.But when you're being nice and say you like the person, what's the need to white knight?
    They're grown adults willingly putting their life out there. Criticism will be a part of it. Period.
    If they can't deal with nice comments that have a hint of criticism or "negativity", then they should never have started vlogging because there are MUCH worse comments. Besides, criticism can help keep them grounded.Who wants a vlogger that gets super full of themselves because all they see is how amazing, pretty and perfect they are? 
    Yep
    Sharla just doesn't seem to be an interesting person. And it shows.
    She doesn't seem to have any talents, hobbies or interests outside Pokemon, food and cats.
    And her lack of ambition/motivation doesn't help her.

    It would be very different if she had a boring life but she was very outgoing and creative and always found ways to make her boring life fun (or at least seem fun on video). I think she tries but is not very successful (with people who don't have the blinders on) because of her bland personality.
