    It's so funny to me how people expect immigrants to assimilate to their own culture and "speak English blah blah blah" but if someone western moves to another country and respects their culture and assimilates then zomg she's trying to be someone else blah blah. It's so dumb. I'm glad you found yourself Megan! I agree with everything you say. Ignore the haters and do you :3

    Hey girl!! You don't really need to make a video about the sky being blue. There are two groups of people out there, those that achieve their dreams and those that put the people of the first group down coz working on themselves is harder than badmouthing and trying to put others down. If you stop and through stones to every barking dog your path gets for no reason longer. (some Albanian quote)
    I really like you coz you motivate me in being a stronger and more independent person! Greetings from Germany :)

    Me being in America and studying here for 8 years and doing American makeups doesn't make me American. I am so thankful that Megan went thru this and think like that cuz I hear similar things so much in U.S. too. I love your hair and makeup btw😍

  • JustADreamingGirl

    Megan~ I totally agree with you! Been in Korea for about a year and a half now, and there is basically no way to not try out all the new and exciting things you can find here~!! Also, I think it is definitely important not to lose yourself, but what I noticed from looking at your video's is not that your losing yourself; it's that your adapting to Korean culture really well. Honestly, I was wondering if you could perhaps do a skincare routine video or a video in which you perhaps talk about your experiences with Korean skincare products? I'd love to know, not because I want to look Korean(!!), I just also like to take care of my appearance well~ Besides that, would you do a video on how you made so many Korean friends? I speak Korean on an intermediate/upper-intermediate level, but I'm still having a bit of a hard time to make friends (even though i'm studying at a Korean university and am usually considered easygoing). I sometimes feel most people just assume I don't speak Korean so they don't even try to be friends with me...

    Hi, this might be a bad video to ask this question on, but I just started watching your videos because I will be moving to South Korea soon and I wanted to ask what you did to learn Korean so well? Did you take classes, do it on your own? Did you soak it up being immersed in the culture? I have just started so I at least can read it, but I definitely want to get better. By the way, I love your videos! They are so great and down to earth.

    omg I totally get what you're saying man... the other thing about people saying "you're trying to be Korean!" is that that statement in itself kind of implies that there is one singular "Korean" that people can be. Like, not only are circle lenses not limited to Koreans, they're also something that not all Koreans wear. Same with clothes and stuff, like... there's not one "Korean" that you can be. "Korean" probably means different things to different people depending where in Korea you go and which Korean people you talk to.

    Girl, i get you. My look is always changing and im an American who is Mexican/Irish descent. However, if i like something from another culture im going to rock it. For example i love how girls in Korea wear their lipstick but i still do western eye makeup. Point being everyone has the right to wear whatever they feel like wearing and people need to mind their own business.

Thank you for addressing all these comments, I've been so aggregated seeing all this nonsense. Love you girl!

    I'm not for changing your body. Boob jobs, eyebrow tattoos, lip fillers, whatever- it just doesn't align with my beliefs. BUT, I'm not gonna hate on Megan because SHE chose to alter HER body. That has nothing to do with ME. It doesn't affect ME. Megan is happy with who she is and she's beautiful from the inside out and if making adjustments to her body makes her love herself more than who am I to judge? Y'all need to stop worrying about someone's life choices when they don't harm or affect you in any way :) Also, it's impossible to move to a different country and NOT assimilate after 5 years lol. Leave the woman alone she's doing her thang lol.

Im interested in the idea not because i think it is cool but i just like the culture and i want to meet and be in a different place from where i was born in. Im planning to complete my university first but i want to know how (you got the courage to tell them) and the way your fam bam reacted to your decision. Love you and block all dem haters in yo life cuz you is amazing just the way you is :D

    Really the last comment is silly. You should rush out and get skin cancer because you aren't dark enough for some random person.  Why does color manner? Most people who do a DNA discover that they are all a mix of races. What percentage of African do you have to be to be considered African America? What percentage of Asian do you have to be before you can wear Korea makeup?  Being in Korea for 5 years of course your style and makeup will change and reflect the culture you are living in. Because guess what the Korea clothes and makeup are what they sell in Korea. Also having respect for the country you are living isn't wrong. It's never good to go into a foreign country and demand everyone act America. What people get hung up on is strange sometimes. The color of your skin, your clothes and makeup have no impact on my life so why should I tell you what to wear or when to tan. I find this channel interesting because you're in a different culture then mine you are exploring and learning about that culture.

    Dressing up different does not make u superficial, not having unique,and one of a kind friends, good relationships with the people u surround yourself with is what makes u superficial.

    You keep up the life style u like, that's what make u happy and most important thing to grasp from life, and don't mind the haters and simpleminded people. They want to unsubscribe or not be friends??? By all means let them go. They'll miss out in the end and u don't need that kind of people in ur life.

      Frankly, I'm glad to see she's cool with her identity and so well-grounded about her choices in life-style, culture and fashion. She looks fine.... that's fine as in "dayum gurl.... ya fine" .... and I'm very impressed with her linguistic "skills". I wish more African-Americans could be more free-minded with their appearances and less apologetic about it. I can't believe their are still people out their that would hate on a girl like this because of her styles and looks just because she's Black in this day in age, I thought we were moving past that when rappers (my bad "rockstars") started wearing dresses and make-up and carrying hand bags and clutches.... but maybe things are moving a lot more slowly than they seemed to be. Don't hate, guys, it's not a good look.

Not because I wanted to, not because I didn't want to, it's just influence.

  • ᗰᗩᖇIᗩᕼ ᐯIᐯIᒪᗩᑎI

    I know I'm late, but I think it's crazy that people say you're losing your identity. If people feel so strongly about wearing clothes from different places, they sure as hell better back it up by wearing their own stuff. If people haven't noticed, in America many people have assimilated to American clothing trends. Don't wear those, doesn't matter if you're born there or not (which some aren't) because since your DNA should decide what you wear, wear African clothes if your ancestors are from there, wear Hispanic traditional clothing if you're so strongly against her wearing clothes. People are individuals and wear things for THEMSELVES. It's this thought that pressures people not to express themselves nor explore things. She wasn't and isn't doing anything wrong by doing something some people are too afraid and snobby to do: explore, develop and be yourself.
