400,000$ for a 300ft studio and i have to see this?!
« on: December 16, 2019, 08:51:10 am »
I live in one of the nicest offictels in Yogsan.  I pay 1.1m/month and 50,000,000 deposit...   Had the pleasure of using a bathroom in the building and had to gag to take a shit.  What it the actual fuk is these disgusting people thinking.  It's 15 days until 2020 ffs. Everyone around here acts all classy and has their nose stuck up in the air like they are some sort of aristocrat, yet they do things like this.  Not to mention all the frozen puke I have to dodge every morning on the sidewalks.

You had to use a bathroom in your own building? You should watch out what you are eating. Maybe keep away from the side street vendors outside your appt.

Wow.

An American co-worker in 2017 (who married a local) bought a house on the coast of Jeju for less than half that, and they live on it while teaching in Seogwipo, the southernmost city in South Korea. (Note: it's minus-7 at 4:30 am in Seoul right now but plus+8 in Seogwipo.)

Moral: Pay more to live with ants than to live where butterflies go.

Who would want to live in Korea? Seriously??? You consider +8 a nice day. In the tropics people would die from exposure at that temperature. What a maroon, as Bugs would say.

I'm shocked that a toilet open to the public has gotten trashed.

Yes but since I didn't buy the place to live in, it's not really applicable.

Jeju isn't the real tropics. Don't you know, if you don't live in the tropics, you're in the scum class!!!

Hahaha, another hit.  I was wondering where they were going to take that, I mean it really sounded like he was describing a prison cell, but it turned out it was an apartment the whole time!!  That Jim...

This toilet isn't around the slums of Seoul station where bums frequent nor in a nightlife district where drunks deface bathrooms and stairwells.  This is in a 50 story high rise with mable floors and the appearance of wealth and class.  But as most Koreans are farmers in suits, the bathroom is where any shred of class is crumbled onto shit covered toilet paper and thrown onto the floor.  Instead of thinking it's normal for a public toilet to be trashed, how about we hold people to a higher standard.

I had a look at the officetel  i bought just after the previous tensnt had moved out and before he had it professionally cleaned. I was pretty shocked . It looked like squatters had been living in it, like something from nightmare tenants/slum land lords. Dust and grime everywhere, strange stains on surfaces  empty and half full alcohol bottles all over the place, broken shelves, handles etc..this is how some salary men live hete I guess without their mommies to clear up after them

even on the tv programmes my wife watches, the tv crew often goes into someone's home for whatever reason, and the place is a complete mess. like, if i knew i was going to be on tv, i'd...make a conscious effort to tidy up a bit? actually, regardless of the tv crew coming or not, i still wouldn't want to live like that anyway. it's gross

i really don't think home deco is a thing here in general. when they show a celebrity's house, it's always the same: a huge living room that's completely bare, except there's a sofa on one side (with a weird matt beneath it), a tv on the other, an exercise bike in one corner, and one of those relax message chairs in the other corner. oh, and with awful lighting from the 100000 watt bulb from the ceiling light. my university hovel looked cozier, i swear

Everything just looks cheap in my opinion.  Which is a huge achievement considering how expensive everything is.

House fittings, decorating products and furniture in general is weird here. There seems to be some sort of monopoly where the only thing you can buy 95% of the time is tacky, faux wood, plastic covered, particle board. Or fake chrome. It doesn't matter how far you go up the price scale its the same shite. A few years back there was a scandal where the wife of one of the Chaebol families was secretly video taped while berating one of her underlings. One of the first things I noticed was that in the background of the video was the same gaudy, fake wood and plastic chrome that every other apartment in the country has.

Though if the home owner is of the older generation you will invariably find a clock that wouldn't look out of place in a bank waiting area or an intercity bus terminal.

This one is so monumentally stupid that anyone with an ounce of critical thinking should be able to notice it;s flaws.

You do realize that land and living space are going to be vastly more expensive in one of the most densely populated countries on Earth in terms of population and arable land. "Gee, why isn't everyone living in a suburban home with a backyard pool?"

Seriously how dumb do you have to be to think this is take makes any sense.

I'm not sure the writer knows how much studio apartments go for in NYC.

And Harry gets hits in the face by four bricks thrown from the roof in Home Alone 2 but doesn't die.  Incredible.  It's almost like it's not to be taken that seriously.  Unless you're humourless.  Anyway.

Cartoon picks up on the fact that 'Koreans make substandard, shoddy buildings that are built way too fast and are generally shit quality' shocker.  I mean no one would really argue with that though would they......oh yeh, there is martin....perceved slight against Korea kneejerk reaction shocker.
