Many people who do not live in East Asian countries may confuse Korea and Japan as being similar is all aspect, but they do not realize how different the two culture can really be. They share some similar traits and have had a history with one another resulting in cultures clashing as well as assimilation of certain aspects, however, both places are unique and special in their own way. The video presenters mention the small, everyday differences that came as a shock to them as they visited each other’s countries, the first and foremost being the difference in the bathing culture of Korea and Japan. Japanese people prefer to have household bathtubs and use them frequently as well as a significant “onsen” or public bath aspect. In Korea, public baths are given a lot more focus and households generally don’t have a tub and instead opt for showers. This small difference outlines just how varied tastes can be because of cultures and preferences. Another aspect that was mentioned were the intricacies of subways in Japan and Korea, where Japanese people tend to be a bit more orderly in their conduct when getting on or off a subway train while in Korea it could get rough in a crowd. This difference may come as a shock to visitors as they hold their own expectations of what is considered appropriate. Anything unexpected may come as a surprise but it simply means that people have their own set of ideals and each surprise is not necessarily bad or good.
