what if "Eat Your Kimchi" had been more like this?

Watch this interracial couple's video on the things they fight about:

While viewing the above, I found myself mentally comparing this Rachel and Jun video to the pandering garbage put out by Simon and Martina of "Eat Your Kimchi." (S&M closed up shop and moved to Japan in 2015.) The above video doesn't escape the problem of having a staged, scripted feel, but the issues discussed are real enough, and the humor is more honest than EYK's because it doesn't involve exaggerated mugging and cartoonish aegyo (a Korean term for saccharine over-cutesiness).

Jun is a trained chef with his own YouTube channel, "Jun's Kitchen." Here's a video showing what he can do. Here, too.
