    I really can't understand why I get BL comics ads, I don't even read them. Is it normal? Well, to be fair, the comic ads sometimes have BG ads but still, I can understand S*phor* ads but I can't understand them. (I keep encountering them in chinese websites)

    It seems like the people making the ad was only thinking about being trendy and appealing to the youth with kpop but with traditional singing but with edm. Which was trash since the music didn’t emphasize Korea culture or the singer’s voice. This was some half ass work :blobpopcorn_two:

    edit: I just check the YouTube comments and apparently people liked it??? So weird

    I thought those ads were meant to scare tourists away. :blobpopcorn:

    Right? It's like they're trying to tell people NOT to come to Korea. If that's their goal, they definitely succeeded. Ai-chan got a few more of the Rythm of Korea ads and they're all just cringe and bores. Ai-chan just got one more ad just now and it showed people dancing in a stadium.

    That's not a tourist attraction, that's just an event. And the rest of the video was just it showing places and their names. What are tourists supposed to do with a wall and an event where mascots take pictures with a celebrity? Is Korea so lacking in tourist traps that they just grab a video of a random neighbourhood and put that into a tourism commercial? Ai-chan had a look at their channel and they actually had many good videos from like a year ago. Why didn't they just use those.

    When Ai-chan gets serious, Ai-chan does not use Ai-chan. When Ai-chan still uses Ai-chan, it means, "Look, you don't like Ai-chan, and Ai-chan doesn't like you. So now that it's established, let's just move along."

    When Ai-chan doesn't use Ai-chan anymore, Ai-chan was saying, "Look, you move along or I will punch you in the face."

    Ai-chan, it's the internet. There are people like that everywhere, only thing to do is to either ignore them or do what you did.

    Anyways, I just install adblocks and my laifu is complete. I won't have to see shitty ads anymore.

    Well i believe what they said wasn't too much. They stated their opinion "referring to yourself in third person is far more annoying than the ads." Just as you made your opinion on the ads known.

    No biggie.

    Why I am seeing IU in 1st and Gong hyo jin in 2nd ad. too much Kdrama.(Btw Many of locations are coverd in KDramas) Lots of tourism ads have counter-productive effect. May be it was due to your VPN or sometimes you get ads based on your region or just get random ads just like random youtube recommendation.

    Sometimes, being wanky and trash can be attractive in its own right
