What you think 😀
You would think that a country like Japan, rich as it is in both traditional culture and technical innovation, as well as plenty of weird and wacky things you’ll never see elsewhere, would be a huge hit with tourists. But as it turns out, Japan is actually not such a popular destination for people traveling abroad. Join us after the jump to find out why.

Japan = more influence first and foremost in 1- videogames (Nintendo, Playstation) and 2-Animation ; South Korea= more influence first and foremost in 1- music (Psy, Kpop) and 2- Tv series. Japan stuff has a more worldwide appeal since is quite popular in different cultures and races (such as Western or Hispanic). Korea stuff has strong appeal among Asian countries and communities. It seems however that people get less interested towards Japan. While China and Thailand beat the both in tourism, Korea do it with Japan. While many people in the world enjoy watching Naruto, they as a whole don’t care that much about the Japan brand. Video games and Animation may reach a wider audience but they don’t let you see much about the country, unlike Korean singers and actors who let you see the face of Korea. I personally can’t be interested much in Kpop because is a foreign language, Psy is the only one well known around the world, but the debut of Korean singer CL in United States may give more to Kpop in non-Asian lands. If you go to facebook Japan gets most likes for its Playstation and Mario, while Korea do it for Samsung and then the actor Lee Minho and singer Psy, also Bigbang a Korean group has about one million more likes than the anime Naruto (9 million vs 8 million) so as whole, what of the 2 countries you readers think is more admired? I personally would want it to be Japan, but can’t help to be attracted to Korea strenghts.
I’ve been a Dragon Ball fan for a long time but I’ve never really done anything Dragon Ballish on the blog (apart from the rant about We Gotta Power a while back) so I finally decided that just for kicks I’d list my Top-5 favorite villains from the series. And just to note, yes this will include both the original Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, but not GT since I haven’t seen that one.
To avoid confusion I’m also not including any incarnation of Piccolo or Vegeta on the list because some people may not get that these guys eventually became goodguys. At the end I’ll list a few characters that were considered for the list but didn’t make it.
I’ve always loved Freeza. He’s just so frickin’ creepy. You see him and instantly you get the sense that you’re utterly fucked. The…

Lolz, happy new 2014, in this blog since it is the first post this year, and now the aforementioned truth is here in this blog 😉
Actually i posted the first video around…. i don’t remenber well, between February or March 2012, However i deleted it about in November or December 2012, However it was reuplouded in July 2013 🙂 ,while the second video is new and i uplouded it in August 2013 🙂 .
In my YouTube cannel also called ProudFeministGirl, The first video (title is: Racism in Mexico against Mexicans) is against the racism of Mexican TV, which often portrays European looking actors, instead of ethnic Mexican looking actors.
The second video is Mexican actresses beauty (i did have to choose the most Brown actresses i could find, since that is the correct representation of Mexicans) vs Korean actresses from the Hallyu Wave 🙂 .
-Update: December 3, 2013 = I will explain the reasons i had to delete the video in the past. First the HUGE bashing it had, you know, i never take seriously the bashing ( agaisnt me or my causes) on the contrary, i used to laugh at many of the bashing and enjoy the debate, because well, many of the things people wrote were funny, however at one point the bashing was so BIG, that almost 90% of the comments were against my video, and i was even to start thinking that i was on the wrong, and anyways most new people that would watch my video would be against me Reading all those comments saying i am on the wrong, in fact one commenter supported me, then other commenter who was always against my cause talked to him in the comments, and finally convinced him that i was wrong! He deleted his comment in support of me and his like to my video 😦 . This year i had some bashing ,however it was few, the former commenters that bashed me, were so into my video and leave much more comments, i also get more support this time. -Another reason is that my video also was a way to promote Korean things, as you can see, some Korean actors/ singers appear on my video, why? i explained in the video, that in Korea, the actors have the correct look of their average people, an example of what Mexico should do, with that link i hoped to expose more people to the Korean Wave, however with time i also lost a lot interest on Korean things and didn’t made sense anymore the video, i though, but this time is back 🙂
