  • Someone’s screenshot we totally lost asks:

  • Tell me more about couple culture in Korea.

  • Do couples really wear the same clothing?

  • Like you see in Korean dramas?

  • Now in a previous TL;DR we wound up

  • Talking about Korean dating culture

  • But were adding a whole bunch of

  • Different points today to that

  • Not necessarily the first stages of dating

  • But now youre a couple

  • What’s the culture of couples like

  • Yeah, couples in Korea like to show

  • Everyone in Korea that they are a couple

  • And when were talking about couple clothing

  • Were not just meaning like couple shirts

  • Were talking about couple hats

  • Couple shirts

  • Pants

  • Socks,

  • And even couple shoes!

  • Yeeeeep

  • And I've seen couple backpacks too

  • I’ve seen like full-fledged,

  • Head-to-toe,

  • I haven’t actually seen the backpacks yet.

  • Yeah, just last week,

  • I saw a couple that looked amazing

  • They were wearing 80s style clothing

  • With knee socks. Both of them.

  • Up to their knees.

  • And shorts.

  • Matching sneakers, matching backpacks.

  • Woooah.

  • Matching tank tops.

  • That’s pretty badass.

  • It was amazing.

  • But, its not like we would do anything like that.

  • Definitely not.

  • That’s crazy right?

  • Aaaaaggggghhhhhh.

  • How did they get those photos? Awkward.

  • Wait a second.

  • Before Martina continues,

  • I want to say that for today’s TL;DR,

  • I wanted to bring in our couple outfits

  • And I wanted to wear them for this segment

  • But she was like

  • Oh noooo, I’m wearing a pretty dress

  • I was the one that wanted to wear the tank top.

  • I—

  • I was the one that wanted to wear the shorts

  • And the flip-flops

  • Listen

  • But you said no because youre like

  • “I’m so pretty right now

  • I said no because no one is going to be able to see it

  • All theyre going to see is the same matching t-shirts.

  • Well then we would back up and we would dance and

  • We would show them our couple pants!

  • They can’t see our couple underwear though!

  • The question is

  • Were not wearing any!!

  • Or are we?

  • Or are we not?

  • We have couple pajamas as well.

  • We do.

  • We sleep naked.

  • So does Spudgy!

  • So does Meemers!

  • Everyone’s a nudist in our house!

  • Indiana Jones and whip your fxcking dxck out!!

  • And Spudgy’s like

  • Now whip, your dxck out, whip, whip, your dxck out

  • Couple rings!

  • So a lot of Korean dramas focus on

  • The couple ring.

  • And couple rings,

  • As you might imagine,

  • Are rings that you exchange

  • But to me,

  • Rings are like a really serious thing,

  • Like even in high school,

  • You didn’t exchange a ring.

  • Or jewelry with somebody

  • Unless it was like youre dating for like

  • A year or something.

  • It was only that couples that

  • Seemed like they were together forever that had couple rings.

  • Yeah.

  • But I mean in Korea it seems like something that is very normal.

  • Like you can get couple rings to say that youre dating.

  • In fact like down the street there’s a guy

  • That’s selling rings and engraves it for you as well

  • And when I was walking by yesterday

  • I heard a girl telling him the spelling of her name.

  • However, interestingly,

  • Once you get married, you buy rings,

  • And then you never wear them!

  • Yeah!

  • What’s with Korean people not wearing wedding rings!

  • I’m not saying all of them don’t

  • But every Korean person I know

  • Doesn’t wear they wedding ring.

  • They have them!

  • Yeah, they put them in their jewelry box

  • Yeah, or a safety deposit box or something like that.

  • So when youre dating youre wearing couple rings

  • And when you get married youre like

  • my work here is done

  • Mission accomplished!”

  • Thousands of dollars on a ring and

  • I’m going to put it in a box.

  • Alright, so there are like a gazillion

  • Different days that you have to remember

  • When youre dating someone in Korea

  • I think the most important purchase

  • that youre going to make

  • when you start dating somebody

  • is a calendar

  • because there are so many days that you have to celebrate.

  • Ok the main one is going to be the 100-day dating day.

  • Yes. So youre like,

  • “I’ve been dating for 100 days!”

  • And it’s weird, because like for us, you say

  • Oh, youve been dating somebody for like

  • Six months, or like few months,

  • But in Korea it’s like 100 days

  • Or 55 days!

  • It’s a lot more specific.

  • It’s like, having a baby.

  • My baby is 38 months old.

  • I can’t math! asldkfjalskdfjalskfj (yelling)!!

  • What does that mean!?

  • Two years old? Just say it!

  • No one speaks like that.

  • Moms….. Moms….

  • So after 100 days, guess what’s after that, Simon.

  • 200 days!

  • 300 days!

  • 400 days!

  • Sooo, it might be hard to keep track of the days,

  • So guess what?!

  • There’s an app for that.

  • We actually recently ended up getting it

  • Because when we were researching this topic

  • I had been reading about this app calledBetween

  • That is supposedly really really popular in Korea.

  • Supposedly one in five couples in Korea

  • Use this app. Here,

  • We actually downloaded it

  • Where’s my phone

  • I lost my phone!

  • AHHHHHHHHH

  • Where are your pants?

  • AHHHHHHHHH

  • I lost my pants! And my phone was in my pants.

  • Leigh? Leigh can you get my phone it over there

  • ooo ripito, flipito I hope it’s slow motion

  • Or my phone is broken

  • Thanks Leigh.

  • And what’s funny about this app

  • Is that we said to Soo Zee, like,

  • What is thisBetweenapp?

  • Have you heard of this before?”

  • And Soo Zee’s like,

  • I’ve totally never heard of this app before.

  • And were like, Soo Zee are you dating anyone?

  • And Soo Zee’s like,

  • Noooooooooo……

  • And were like,

  • can you message one of your friends that are dating someone?

  • And she’s like, “Ok.”

  • She messages some of her friends,

  • Theyre ALL using this app!

  • Yep, this thing is really really popular.

  • Essentially what this app is,

  • It’s kind of like Kakaotalk,

  • Very similar to that

  • Except it’s only for couples

  • And you can only use it

  • If you have another person that youre dating

  • And you both register your phone number to this.

  • It can’t be like, Simon, Martina, and our friend.

  • It’s literally just a personal messaging system between two people

  • So there’s no three way app going on

  • There’s only a two-way app going on.

  • Theyve got a D-Day countdown clock.

  • And D-Day is a term in Korea that is used for lots of things

  • Like, exam day, or D-Day 100 for when youve been dating.

  • We typed in our anniversary for our wedding.

  • And it says, like,

  • D, - , however many days.

  • So it warns you.

  • I wind up remembering all the days

  • When we wound up meeting, and our first date, and our first kiss,

  • And when we got engaged,

  • Martina’s really bad at remembering these days.

  • And when I put them in here it ends up telling you

  • On the side, like,

  • D+2,231

  • Which is how many days weve been married now.

  • Over two thousand days

  • I thought that means when we have to celebrate our anniversary.

  • No it says how many days.

  • So the point is that you have to check this app regularly

  • So you can be like, Oh! It says D+99,

  • Tomorrow’s my 100-day anniversary.

  • And besides your 100 day, 200 day anniversary

  • There’s also a whole ridiculous slew of holidays

  • In Korea that mostly fall on like the 14th of every month.

  • Yes.

  • Ok so like the first obvious one is February 14th,

  • Valentines Day.

  • But in Korea, the girl gives something to the guy,

  • Then, if the guy winds up accepting the chocolates

  • that the girl wound up making

  • then he has to give her something for white day

  • which is the month afterwards, March 14th.

  • We did a couple videos about these a really long time ago

  • So click on the buttons here if you want to see them,

  • Man those are really old videos.

  • We look awful and fat. But were wearing couple clothing!

  • Couple clothing!

  • February is for girls to boys,

  • March is for boys to girls,

  • And then April 14th is Black Day,

  • The day of sadness for single people,

  • Which we actually talked about in our jjajjangmyun delivery video.

  • And after that,

  • There are a whole shxtload of ridiculous ones.

  • Like May 14th which is Rose Day!

  • Which I didn’t even know about

  • Until we were walking around Hongdae and

  • I was like, “Is it just me

  • or are there a lot of girls with roses today?”

  • Yep.

  • And after May 14th is June 14th which is

  • Kiss Day!

  • Martina Singing: Someday my prince will come

  • You need a day for kissing?

  • I kiss my wife like all day everyday.

  • Your nose is cold.

  • Like a 100 kisses right there.

  • Maybe it was kiss on the lips day.

  • AAHHHHhhhHHh.

  • Sexy time!!

  • And July 14th is Silver Day!

  • Youre like, I love gold!

  • I love silver!

  • It’s supposed to be like the change of rings day

  • But honestly, Soo Zee and I were looking up these holidays,

  • And she was like, “What? Silver day?

  • What?! Kiss day?”

  • So I don’t really know if it’s that popular,

  • But I do remember seeing couples doing things like that,

  • Like, Cookie Day?!

  • Yeah, supposedly there’s like Cookie Day as well!

  • I remember seeing couples with like an

  • Extraordinary amount of cookies!

  • And wondering if it was some bakery
