A discussion thread about K-Vloggers. 

K-Vloggers are people who live in South Korea and vlog their life about living in Korea. 

 I thought to create a thread, so be open to discuss the K-Vloggers examples I put and other less popular K-Vloggers here as well. 

Also, there are threads for Edward Avila, Megan Bowen AKA ChoNunMigookSaram and EatYourKimchi AKA Simon and Martina. I'll link them about the bottom of this thread.

Examples:

My favourite is definitely Dave! But I really wonder if something is happening between him and Erina?

My least favourites are EYK and Ali Abbot.

 

(Also Hugh from MyKoreanHusband occasionally comments on my IG posts but he doesn't follow me...........)

I've never heard of any of these vloggers before except My Korean Husband and I never found her channel that interesting.  2hearts1soul looks interesting.  I'll check some of these outs. This looks interesting :)

Sunny has a thread here already

I've never heard of a few of these people, I think Hallyu Back seem like nice people, and some of their videos are pretty objectively informative which I can appreciate. I second what polybrow said, Ali Abbot is probably my least favorite out of the bunch.

Woah, got a chance to check out 2hearts1soul and holy crap are they good.  They put the majority of the Jvloggers to shame in their film and editing.  I thought Taylor might be decent, but their work blows away her stuff.  They've got great editing skills and a good sense of the camera work.  

They know their angles well. They do seamless jump cuts without a shaky or dropped camera to be seen! 

The only downside is some of their material is a little lifeless and they don't have a great onscreen presence like other vloggers do.  Their talents are definitely in videography and editing.  They could work a little more on their music, but still almost pro-quality

I really enjoy watching the world of dave and 2hearts1seoul :alpacacrush:

I've watched some of the others videos before but seriously Ali Abbot + Bakmokja and Haeppy make me cringe.

 

also this video by HallyuBack (not a fan) got really negative feedback because of Richard's use of the n-word

2hearts1seoul is my Sunday morning treat! They don't do hard hitting content but its so relaxing to watch as its a nice normalization of international couples in Korea. EYK was awesome back in the day, I still watch them now and then for fun, but its gotten repetitive. After I moved to Korea I realized they really played up quite normal things in Korea "OMG KOREAN COFFEE ITS SO DIFFERENT AND EXCITING" - nah its just coffee y'all.

My Korean Husband is alright, their humor is funny, but sometimes their videos were a bit meh, moving to Seoul might be good for them due to more stuff to do. I look forward to this thread!

I quite like Simon and Martina as a whole. Although at the last 1-2 years it started to become more and more evident that they were just not that excited about Korea anymore. I don't like some of their videos, but I think majority of the points on that "why EYK are problematic" post is exaggerated. For example their video about the black face-mask (not black-face mask) they never did any racist jokes in that one, and the mask was not likely made to be racist. Just a face mask that happened to be black imo. 

 

I stopped watching them around the last couple of months in Korea since it was obvious they didnt like it and Martina wasn't feeling well. Started watching them when they got to Japan again. They are a bit too excited sometimes and a bit weebish at some point but I don't think it's hurtful and it seem they've stepped up their game.

Yeah, I just discovered 2hearts1seoul through this thread and I'm impressed.  They're the first vloggers I really think do a pretty good job.  Such quality filming and editing.  Nothing that made me cringe.  I think I'm a fan.  :)

What I think is really nice about their vlogs is that it seems like they don't really play up reactions or force a topic to be interesting. If its a quiet day, they film a quiet day. Also, they do a good job touching on topics that matter (generational culture difference, visa stuff, existence as a social other, etc..) in a normal conversational way. I appreciate other bloggers/youtubers who sit down for serious talk times, but having a more casual/normal conversation is really nice. Beemo is freaking adorable too!

CharlyCheer! I haven't kept up with her videos in a long time, but I really like her. She's sweet and down-to-earth, and you can tell she really enjoys teaching in SK. She actually jumps around a bit too. I remember she taught in Mexico for a bit, and last time I watched she was back in SK, but I think I saw in my subscription list that she moved again.

I actually really like Korean Englishman, his Korean is really good and his videos are pretty good quality. He recently brought the pastor of his church on a trip to Korea and they're pretty heartwarming videos to be honest.

I am subbed to (currently) simon and martina, megan, josh and bapmokja. I don't find all of them great but yeah some content are tolerable. I still mainly watch S&M regularly and josh.

I used to like Hallyuback even watched their vlogs when they moved back to NY but then the vlogs became repetitive. also the videos they make about k-news is bull... but I watch it for the comments(on rare occasions).
