Hello friends and family!
This is Megan Bowen, a.k.a. chonunmigooksa~ram… imnida!~ And have you ever been in Korean and you walk by some people outside on a summer day when it’s sweatin’ we all got booty sweat running down our butt cracks which is very unpleasant And then! You stand next to somebody from Korea, and they smell like… …being a little bit musty right there You haven’t?! Neither have I! Because they don’t stink!
I swear, on the hottest summer days they smell like roses and… …kitties ♡ Kitties smell very good because they clean themselves. Bangul: Mrow~ewr Quiet now, peasant! And not too long ago, I made this video;
and it was Korean people like, reacting to American household items. Stuff like: Turkey basters Apple slicers Which, a lot of people didn’t know what that was, that was quite surprising and when it got to stick deodorant… Only one person knew what the deodorant was!
And lot of you guys were like “ehmagad well what does deodorant look like in Korea then,” “if they don’t know what stick deodorant looks like??” Well! They don’t use deodorant! “Girl what you talkin’ about??” They don’t wear deodorant because they don’t need it they smell like roses all the time, the bastards. So, I did some scientific digging on the Google…
which is not very scientific… And what I found was that apparently, East Asians and almost… every single Korean person has a gene called “ABCC11” Which… kind of sounds fake, but I guess it’s not.
And what that means is that it changes the composition of their sweat, so that that way, when the bacteria eat their sweat
they do not produce the foul smelling… …mustiness which we are so accustomed to. Because if you didn’t know, that’s what causes the odors.
I guess it’s something that we secrete,
a protein or something that we secrete in our sweat and the bacteria on our skin, they eat it. They’re like, “ooh, yummy yummy yummy proteins~”
and then they make byproducts…
basically their poop and pee, and it smells like that STANK MUSTY FUNKY Bangul: “Myeow~” That’s right! Eh, Bang-ah~ Bangul: “Myeowr~” Bang-ah! Bangul: “Mye~ow” Yes! So they do not need to wear deodorant,
and I’ve heard a lot of Korean-Americans who grew up in America so they’re just kind of used to the notion of wearing deodorant every day so they didn’t even know that they didn’t need it! And then they came to Korea and nobody wears deodorant and they’re like “What the hell, man??” So then they tried not wearing deodorant, and they’re like “Yo bro! I’m a SWEAT GOD!” ‘Cause they didn’t smell, and I’m jealous of you guys. Really. So if you are Korean-American and you didn’t know,
try going deodorant-less for a day. Chances are, because over 98% of Korean people have this gene, chances are… Ya’ aint gon’ stank,
and you’ve been wasting hundreds of dollars
on deodorant over the years using it every day. And it even held a lot of compounds that are unsafe
so if you can cut that out, cut it out. Another interesting thing is that people who produce that… …hah~ people who have “ABCC11whateverthehell” (ABCC11) They have that thing…
they also have dry earwax. So, I don’t know if you’ve used your headphones for a long time and you are a Westerner who smells, like myself,
when you take out your earphones sometimes,
it’s a little wet, it’s gross. If your earwax is wet, then you will have the stinky pits.
If your earwax is dry, then you will not have the stinky pits. Of course, not in 100% of the cases, but that is a telltale sign of somebody who does have that gene: dry earwax. So, what you can take from this is that if you are a funky Westerner, such as myself~ and you need deodorants, the deodorant options…
are very small here. And the deodorant that you do find, it’s quite overpriced. So what you want to do when you come here, is you want to fill up your suitcase with deodorants. And if you’ve been here for six years, like myself,
you want to order it online on Amazon or something. Because literally the only brand of deodorant you will find here in like Olive Young, and even in the convenience store sometimes, is Nivea, and then it’s a spray-on one and I hate the spray-on one.
I need a deodorant stick. My favorite deodorant right now is the Arm & Hammer one. They’re not sponsoring this video… However~ Would you like Arm & Hammer to sponsor it? Bangul: “Myeh~” (yeah) Alright, they’re not sponsoring this video, but that is my favorite one.
It’s the Naturals one, it works really really good. But this one is so good. You can get in on iHerb,
and just in case you didn’t know and youse movin’ to Korea, iHerb ships to Korea for like four dollars, so it’s really really cheap.
Anything you get on iHerb, shipping is four dollars. It’s practically the same in the United States wherever you are. I heard that like, deodorants have so many things like aluminums and all that stuff that gets into like your lymph nodes or something,
causes problems in your body I believe it ’cause we just put so many chemicals in our body, so whatever we can lessen certain chemicals, that’s what I like to do. So I was on this journey where I was trying all these natural deodorants, y’all Like Tom & Toms, whatever… the other ones are called, you know what I’m sayin’.
(Tom’s of Maine) I tried like, five different kinds… and like, midday… suddenly– I was smelling myself, ’cause I was like “oh no!”,
so I have to go to the bathroom, wipe it all out and put on another layer, and I was like “this is not okay”, but this is the only natural deodorant that I found
that keeps me stank-free for the whole day. I don’t know why I decided to share my deodorant with you, but you guys love when I talk about random stuff and share stuff about my life.
