It never seems to amaze me – the power of social networking.
Back in 2012 a brief video I did of my judo instructor eventually spread throughout Korea and landed him on a national cable TV variety show.
Though still one of the most memorable highlights of my time in Korea thus far, I was still super surprised and grateful for having one of my videos covered on an English version of a Korean TV show called “Korea Today: Arirang Issue”. On this show they showcase videos from foreigners either in Korea or elsewhere, that are viral or of great interest to the general Korean public.
I recently did a video of this very unique flea market that operates on weekends right near my apartment and at my bus stop. I initially noticed it blew up on some Korean social media sites, but then I was alerted by a subscriber that it also landed on this very TV show.
