On a Korean YouTube show, ‘How Koreans think about Malaysia?’ the presenters voiced their amusement about a colleague wearing a fur hat and fur gloves in a Malaysian office.
The show host is Jay Kim and he invited Hi Monk, two Korean girls who lived in Malaysia to speak about the country.
The two Korean girls did a show during the Ramadan on fasting on YouTube. Jay Kim does a lot of shows on Muslim women, explaining why Muslim women cannot touch the hands of men who are not related to them and so on.
In the Jay Kim show, the Hi Monk duo talk about their experience in Malaysia and shared their views on what they think about Malaysia, which they say is very cold (inside buildings) and is a place where they ate real Chinese and Indian food.
While one of them said Malaysia is a very hot country outside (on the streets), another one said, on the contrary, it is ‘very cold’ when you go inside.
She meant inside buildings, offices, shopping complexes and even the subway.
She said the air conditioner makes it so cold inside buildings and offices, sparking jokes among YouTube users that they know Malaysia as a hot country.
The presenter said, “In Korea, we cannot turn on the air-cond because of a progressive tax.
“I was cold when I was working in Malaysia, wearing a sweater and warmed my hands by rubbing them constantly,” said Hi Monk.
She then said, “A colleague who sat on the other side, he wore fur gloves and a fur hat,” getting the three presenters to break into laughter.
She said she caught a cold twice because of the air conditioning.
“The subway is also very cold. You have to wear long clothing,” she said.
Jay Kim said he was jealous, repeating that in Korea they do not turn on the air conditioner, adding that “Korea is hot and Malaysia is cold.”
