KajoPicks: 12 Korean silent vloggers you should subscribe to on YouTube
Raise your hand if you love watching vlogs but cannot stand loud vloggers.
As much as it is interesting to watch strangers living their normal lives, some vloggers out there really go all out with the TMI (Too Much Information).
Besides showing their daily activities, they talk about their ex-boyfriends, sex lives and family issues. For some, it may be cathartic or even therapeutic to hear that other people are having the same, or even more, problems than you.
Then we have the silent vloggers. Unlike other vloggers who unload their lives in front of the camera, these vloggers remain silent.
They do not talk to the camera but communicate with their audience through subtitles.
The country which offers so many silent vloggers on YouTube is none other than South Korea.
Most of these Korean silent vloggers are freelancers, stay-at-home mums and college students.
They document their lives doing normal activities such as grocery shopping, cooking and going to class.
At the same time, they promote slow living and minimalist lifestyle.
