    Why are some faces blurred, wouldn't it better to cut them altogether? Or was it something done after the video had been published?

    영상 찍기전에 동의 했을텐데
    영상에 본인 이상하게 나왓다고
    모자이크 처리해달란거 진짜 꼴보기싫네...
    개 잘만든 영상에 모자이크 똥 끼얹는거

    더럽게 시리 방바닥에 이불 깔고 누워서 라면 쳐먹고 있는 영상은 뭐하러 넣냐. 침대 살 돈도 없이 가난하다는거 강조하냐? 아예 한국인들이 똥 싸면서 스마트폰 하는 장면도 넣지 그랬냐. 음식은 식탁에서 먹어야지. 못 배운 사람 마냥 저러는 사람들이 있나?

    I get goose bumps after watching this video as korean. This video is really well made and very insightful. Thats is real of korea especially in Seoul. When I watch the counts of numbers, I was feel like just seeing me. Still I'm preparing some tests for my future job with time competition.

    경쟁사회다. 혹독한 경쟁사회에서 살아남기 위해 투쟁하는 우리의 모습이다.
    개성을 드러내면 도태되기 쉽고,
    스트레스를 풀기 위해서 게임, 연예인 공연, 클럽같은 여가활동을 하지만 결국은 다시 경쟁하고마는 그야말로 지옥이다.
