(Breakfast before we go snowboarding…) (It’s some ramen joint by the place we’re staying.) (Every ramen place in Sapporo is amazing.) (Japanese ramen is normally too greasy for me, so I don’t go unless I know it’s good.) (But even just the neighborhood ramen shops in Sapporo are amazing.) The noodles are so springy. (It’s our first time snowboarding…) (We’re going to a ski resort around downtown Sapporo!) (I’m pumped because of the snow.) (Our first time seeing snow this winter.) This is amazing! The snow is so pretty! I’m getting so pumped! And I…OOP. (The snow originally had me worried about today.) (But coming up a mountain with the falling snow is just great…) Tomo, look! (Taking out my frustrations.) (I’m not aware of what’s yet to come…) (We’re getting ski lift tickets and renting gear!) (I hated all of them. I wanted something cool, but they all have patterns.) (The men’s section had so many nice ones that it was easy to pick.) (I pick Tomo’s outfit.) (He wanted to show me how cool he was.) Sapporo is supposed to be good for…power snow? But it rained, so not today.) (At least he looks like he’d be good at snowboarding.) Do my thingies for me! How am I supposed to do this?! (Just securing my feet on the snowboard was hard already…) (I never knew you had to go through this suffering to snowboard…) I don’t want to see you fall over… (So it’s hard to just move at all with a snowboard.) (I’m fairly athletic, so I thought it would be easy…) (But I’m just going in circles.) This is a workout… (So he’s strapped in, but how will he get up…) (That’s right. Laugh while you can.) (That smile will disappear soon.) I’m super athletic, so let me show you how it’s done! I’ll show you! (This is how you get up…!) ‘What are you even doing…’ Okay, I’ll show you! ‘Don’t hurt yourself!’ WAIT! -‘You’re no better than I am!’
-How are you supposed to get up?! My phone! (My wistful hand.)
(My phone, all alone.) (I came to save my phone.) Oh, no! (UGH.) There’s water all in the charging port… He’s studying how to snowboard. (Tomo learned how to stand up.) Hey, you’re shi–HAH. (Is what I said, while I’m stuck on my butt.) (There’s no lift in the beginner area, so…) (He looks like Sadako…) ‘Tomo said he’s got it now.’ ‘Nice.’ ‘He’s doing it.’ (Just standing up is a pain.) ‘It’s okay!’ ‘Don’t hurt yourself!’ (I stood up through sheer force of will.) (My hair was all in my eyes and I couldn’t see.) ‘Nice, nice, nice!’ (Since we can stand up now…) (It takes five seconds to come down, but five minutes to go up…) (I figured things would turn out well if we just made it up.) (We thought we’d fall if we both tried to get off at the same time, so we got on separately.) (Which doesn’t matter, because I ended up falling on my face twice trying to get off.) (We got to the top, and suddenly realized it wasn’t a beginner course.) ‘How are we supposed to do this?’ ‘We’re going to die.’ (And Tomo over here looking like a winter prince.) ‘Your face is all red.’ (These little kids are doing it, so so can I.) ‘It’s really pretty, but…am I gonna die?’ (We only just learned how to stand up…) ‘Okay, but what if we die.’ (I’m falling on my butt every 1 meter.) ‘It’s kind of scary,’ ‘but I think I’m better than Tomo.’ (This is the last laughter of the video.) (I ended up taking a bad spill, and I wasn’t concerned about filming at that point. The eighth time I fell down, I fractured my rib…^^) (I thought I would die riding a snowboard, so I paid extra money to switch to skis.) ‘I think I have a broken bone, Tomo…’ ‘It’s totally…’ ‘It’s totally broken…’ (Having some food to calm my nerves…?) I cracked. I thought everything would just turn out okay… I went up to some high mountain, and– (Cheeseball)
Is it good? (Crying)
It was like…ten times… I rolled and rolled and rolled when I fell. I’m normally really athletic. Uh, no? It’s even hard for me to just breathe right now. And it hurts to laugh… It hurts so bad… I really thought I was going to die… It’s the first time I’ve thought that heights are scary… Okay, but this looks good. (I’m in pain, but good food is good food.) (Even a fractured rib isn’t going to beat my appetite.) When I was going down at the end, I was going really fast. I popped up in the air and rolled 2, 3 times… And I landed right with my arm against my chest. Bam! (Speechless.) (Calling my parents to complain about my pain.) I came skiing and I think I cracked a rib… (Still shook over my accident.) When we went when I was little, I remember being good at skiing. So I thought I’d be able to ride a snowboard… I thought I’d just be able to automatically do it. (I keep speaking Japanese even when I’m on the phone…) (We bought a 7 hour lift ticket, so I’m trying to at least go skiing.) (I realized that I’ll die if I don’t study up first.) -I did the A!
-Do the A! (At least I’m better at skiing than Tomo ^^) (Not well. Just better than Tomo.) (I can’t laugh when I watch Jandi skiing in Boys Over Flowers anymore.) ‘Good job~’ ‘Do the A!’ ‘Okay, but my ribs…’ (Tomo keeps falling.) (It takes five seconds to get down and five minutes to go back up…) ‘This place has no mid-level courses.’ ‘I’ll get it this time.’ ‘Your face is all red! Cutie!’ ‘Ow, my rib…!’ ‘That’s where I fractured my rib.’ (This place is my new nightmare.) ‘It may not seem like anything on camera, but it’s really high.’ ‘How am I supposed to get down…’ (Tomo is falling down harder and harder…) ‘It’s snowing, but I don’t even care anymore.’ ‘I’m just so done, and I think I–‘ (We’re getting back to our roots.) (It’s the first time Tomo didn’t fall!) (We’re ended up just skiing out of frustration.) -‘Wanna head back?’
-You wanna go? Aren’t you tired? ‘It’s so dark that nobody will even realize we’re dead.’ -But I think if we try one more time, I’ll be able to leave satisfied.
-‘I guess…’ -‘Let’s go.’
-Let’s go! We’re tough cookies. You fell and we’re going back a third time. It’s okay to fall, but I’ll regret not trying again before we leave. ‘It’s our final attempt!’ ‘I am so scared…!’ ‘I made it down first!’ ‘I think I just busted my knee too.’ (I came down too fast and crashed through the barricade.) ‘But what’s important is that I only fell twice the whole way!’ I think I can go home satisfied now. My hair is a mess, though. ‘But look at where I fell.’ (Someone came over to help me because I was lying in the snow like that.) (I thought he finally made it without falling, but…) ‘Hold on, I’m coming to save you.’ Dying Micky! (I still don’t know why he’s doing this bit.) (I’ve fallen over here more than I ever have in my entire life.) I love you, Yuin… Stay golden… (What, though?) ‘What a cool cat.’ My body doesn’t want to move. I’ve broken the human limits of falling down. (It’s the first time falling + flying through the air that much.) My legs keep getting bent in ways they don’t go. ‘My ribs hurt and I can’t even laugh.’ I thought today was my last day on Earth. “So this is how it ends…” I thought so too. But at least I’ll get covered in snow and refrigerated after I die. So they’ll find me during their studies in a hundred years. You wish. These little munchkins not even half my height are so much better than us. -What is wrong with us?
-They’re experienced! But we’ve never learned to ski. And we’ve never even tried snowboarding before. (Reality sets in.) I could barely breathe before! I was really scared. I just laid there without moving, right. -I couldn’t breathe.
-I went over and you said you couldn’t breathe… I thought my life was over. Tomo was like, “Should I call an ambulance?” (It started to hurt even worse after we left.) I can’t breathe. Even just talking hurts. ‘I’ll speak for you so you don’t have to talk.’ ‘Guys, I…’ ‘I’m in so much pain.’ ‘Owww…’ ‘I’m gonna cry.’ ‘Guys, I’m about to cry.’ ‘It hurts so bad. I can barely breathe.’ ‘I’m sleepy…’
(That was my “I’m in pain” face.) It hurts. Don’t make me laugh. (It kept getting worse, so I went to the hospital…) ‘It looks like your 4.’ ‘Why is the 2 so small.’ ‘People who know how to do math write small 2s. Or something.’ (Symptoms: It hurts to lie down, get up, move, breathe and laugh.) (Tomo’s Japanese handwriting…) [In Korean]
‘Yuin’s hurting.’ It hurts so bad… Poor thing… It’s hard to not be able to breathe. -‘How do you say “poor thing” in Korean?’
-“Bul-sang-hae.” [In Korean]
‘Poor thing.’ (I can’t even laugh because of the pain.) Watch out for the Coronavirus, guys. Wash your hands often and wear a mask in public. (She’s making sure I’m not Chinese…) They kept asking about China. They kept asking if I went to China recently. (Of course it’s fractured.) ‘It says here it will be painful for the next month or so.’ (A month…) (Saying bye…) This is where we’ll end the video today. -Okay…
-Be a little more excited! Then we’ll wrap up the video here for today! We’re never coming to a ski resort again! (Neither of us want to come back.) So, then…
