    I think that how this video was filmed incredible, I've didn't see something as breathtaking as this in quite a long while. On its contents, it reflects the good side of Korea(or in this case more precisely, Seoul) perfectly. Good food, many possibilities to have fun with friends and an inspirational nightlife. I also love the fact that culture (both new and old) sticks out and shows that Korea can still can adapt to new traditions while not completely forgetting it's past (would have been nice to see sth related to the border between South and North Korea but I guess it's a video about Seoul, not Korea itself.). In my opinion, there should have been more pressure on the esports and academic part of the video. Seoul is the esports capital in the world and a glimpse in the typical PcBang wouldn't have hurt. In Korea, academic success is VERY important and the pressure put on both, young and old, is sad since everything depends on it. People who can't keep up or deal with the pressure commit suicide, that's why I think it should have been more highlighted. These points are just nitpicking at a high level but I still felt that it was mentionable... Great video nonetheless.

    한국인 특징 하나 더 추가됐네요. 보통 영상보면서 그다지 부정적으로 생각 안했을거면서 댓글들 보더니 어두운면이니 뭐니 하는거 보고 맞아맞아 하는거. 즉 물타기의 민족이기에 자기 의견이 먼저 형성되기 어렵다는 것

    Magic od story presentation
    presenting the soul of a city, its character and in all its colours, diversity and glory.
    Editing - It's dreamy swift and will take me time to unpack and learn so much from it.... be it transitions, or the sound effects,
    Seoul - lost my heart to this city.
    futuristic yet grounded..........
    happening yet it's quiet .......
    Seoul_wave took me by storm....
    peace and prosperity to this magical city and to the world....

    물고기는 물의 존재를 의식하지 못하듯, 오히려 한국인보다 한 발짝 떨어져서 바라보는 외국인의 시각 덕분에 서울이 더 정확하게 담아진 듯 합니다. 영상 제작에 얼마나 많은 노력이 들어갔을 지 상상이 안되네요. 멋집니다.
