I'm too late for the contest but here is a second version of the set, @rainie-minnie :)

This is probably less "cliché" than my other set and more personal.
Let's explain all of this :D

===For Japan===

THE YOSHIDA BROTHERS {black&white picture with 2 people}
You probably already know my love for some Japanese bands (Man With A Mission, Sakanaction)
or solo artist (Yuya Matsushita); but do you remember The Yoshida Brothers? I made a set
about them a long time ago! To me they're one of these Japanese groups you must know. Why?
Because they display in a modern way traditional music with shamisen and the result is epic!
If you watch NHK, the theme music of the show "Begin Japanology" is made by them.
I'd like to see them live :)
One Long River (my fav song)

Live performance of the song Kodo (they're awesome, right? ^^)

SHIBUYA 109 {picture with umbrellas}
A famous place, everyone has at least see pictures/videos of it! Of course I want to cross
there too like many people hahaha! You must feel small among so many people and with big
buildings surrounding you!
I found a Tumblr post where video game pictures and real photos of Shibuya are compared:

Or you can see this crossing in Lost In Translation movie:

Or in Fast & Furious 3:

KABUKI THEATRE {coloured middle picture}
I discovered it on NHK WORLD TV again lol I want to see it with my own eyes,
I like the red lanterns on the frontside :) And also it's interesting because I thought
all ancient buildings were in Kyoto but this theatre is in Tokyo ^^ Again old and new
are mixed :)

LOVE AND POP by RYU MURAKAMI
That book was weird but gives a good point of view about young Japanese.
It denounces the mass consumption society with a unique style of writing. I don't want to
spoil the story so if you're interested, read it! I believe if you like a country, you should
discover its culture and thinking by reading its local authors; and not just enjoying the
commercial side such as pop music or anime for example.

BUSTIN' by SHING02
It's a short movie made by the rapper and DJ Shing02 (he's the one who worked with the
late Nujabes) Again, I don't want to spoil the story, you just need to know it's about dance!
And it was probably made to denounce the dancing ban in Japan. Anyway, the music is dope!
Bustin' short movie (22min)

JIRO TANIGUCHI {manga picture}
My all time favourite manga author, the great Jiro Taniguchi! His style may not appeal to
all (especially young people I think? They might find it boring) because he's far from the
design of Kuroshitsuji (which I adore also). He's more into realistic drawings and slice
of life stories. I nearly cried with some stories (there's one inspired from his real life
and telling the last moments of his dying dog, really sad) but there are also moving and
hopeful one. For food lovers, I recommend "Le Gourmet Solitaire" (Kodoku No Gurume)
in each chapter he talks about one meal :)
Pictures of his different works:

===For South Korea===

E'JOUNG JU {coloured picture of the woman}
She plays geomungo Korean traditional instrument (you can compare it to the Yoshida Brothers!)
She plays with Western musicians so the music is a mix of different cultures, I like it!
I discovered her when there was promotion about "Le Printemps Coréen",
an event about Korean culture in France (but I didn't go it was too far from my city)
Too bad I couldn't see her live...
One of her performance:

are true genius, perfect in their moves!

HONGDAE
Since watching it in EXO Showtime, I want to visit Hongdae area!
Not much to say about it, all to discover!

MYEONGDON {picture with the EXO ad on Lotte Department Store}
I'm not a big fan of shopping (I hate it sometimes) but I think in Myeongdong
I'll probably change my mind :D

MINA by APPLE KIM
Another interesting book, it highlights how young people in Seoul are desperate by their life condition.
Not a happy subject I know but this is reality. Warning, the book is kinda shocking on some part
so if you don't like reading violent things... don't.

CHEONGGYECHEON {coloured picture with river and buildings}
Taking a walk there must be cool :) The best would be with a boyfriend lol
*already dream of it even if don't have one* XD

===The end===
If you read all of it, hats off! Don't be shy and tell me
what interested you the most among those facts :)
I didn't have much to say about South Korea, I still need to learn more!
