Simon and Martina are on tour around Europe! Those lucky guys are recording from Stockholm, in Sweden and getting a “reverse culture shock” in the process.

  • Stockholm is a much quieter city compared to Seoul – noise pollution
  • There’s less apparent celebrity endorsements and advertising in Sweden – what not on every corner?
  • How is this for a recent statistic in Korea – out of 71 major television dramas, 32 had idols.
  • Interesting to see how heavily reliant Korea is on idol stars and status compared to other entertainment markets around the world.

 What’s trending in South Korea…

  • Korean smartphone users leaving the super popular messaging app ‘Kakao Talk’ – find out why.
  • AND where are they all going?
