Welcome to CANADACOREA VIDEOS. My name is Gary and I'm a Canadian who loves South Korea! While living in that beautiful country for almost three years, I was able to get a camcorder and do a bit of video taping and editing. I compiled a video collection of various aspects of life in that awesome country. Now, as time and resources permit, I am sharing a few excerpts of that collection through this site.
If you are a professional
who is giving serious thought to the idea of living in Korea, then the
clips you see here will at least give you a glimpse into one of
richest, most vibrant, and fabulously diverse cultures in Asia. Compared to
her famous counterparts, China and Japan, South Korea is
still somewhat unfamiliar and enigmatic to
most North Americans.
It is my sincere hope that the glimpses provided here--and
on my Seoul
Canadian, eh site--will promote greater insight and
understanding among Asian and Western cultures.
|First, here are a few clips from our travels in and around Seoul:|
|Traditional drums played in non-traditional performances by Korean goblins. This renowned show has traveled all over the world.|
|This shows various kinds of dances and musical productions, done in the traditional way, as children are still taught in many families.|
|Our winter trip to the Korean Folk Village, where lifelong Korean traditions are preserved and lived out in the midst of millions of annual visitors.|
|Beautiful flowers, exotic plants, free entertainment, and lots of people, as experienced at Lake Park, Ilsan. This one is long! Its running time 32:41. (Edited with Pinnacle Studio 8)|
KBS, MBC, SBS, etc.
|Korean music videos, commercials, and live performances from Hi Seoul! and other great events. This one is even longer!! Its running time is just over an hour. (Edited with Pinnacle Studio 8)|
from Hwajung in beautiful Gyeonggi-do,
|Buildings in Korea pop up & down faster than prairie gophers in Sunny Alberta! Some structures go up within 2 months and come down just 10 months later. This makes for construction everywhere!|
|Here are more Windows Moviemaker clips. These star some fantastic Korean students (all ages):|
Just the Kids!
POLYSchool, Hwajung, Ilsan, Korea
