Asian Boss : It's been a while, everybody! We've been busy trying to expand our coverage into various parts of Asia and while it's certainly taking longer than expected, we've got some interesting videos coming out soon so stay tuned. Any questions, just reach out to us via our Facebook page or here: www.youtube.com/asianboss/community

외국인코리아WaegukinKorea : I am guessing If Koreans, who have stayed overseas for a while, are asked same questions, the answers would be totally different..

Hugh G. Rection : watching this video high af is hilarious

i love Jimin : So sad he has to make such an apology for smoking weed lmao

Gongaroo : TOP did break the law but marijuana isn't really a bad thing. I personally think that both the law and their punishments are overly harsh. 5 to 10 years? It's draconian. Unfortunately, there's nothing that we can do as international fans even if we disagree with their laws.

Tʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛ Cʀɪᴍɪɴᴀʟ : I'm a bit shocked by their reasoning. So basically they won't question any law because ''there's probably a good reason for it.'' Blind obedience.

fokid1 : Most governments only make weed illegal because they can't tax it or haven't found a way to monopolies the market...these people are really innocent to belive that the governemnt wants to protect them from the negative side effects of weed using...yes because alcohol and cigarettes are so healthy.... -.-

Navez2011 : legalizing weed in korea would mean a huge sum of money taken away from alcohol companies in korea, and we all know how much of a drinking culture Korea has. Perhaps these alcohol companies are paying off politicians to keep things the way they are. Its all just a conspiracy theory!!!

슛 슛 : 마약으로 더러운 나라들이 깨끗한 한국에 훈계질ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅅㅂ

Agnes Lee : Are people not taught about drugs, alcohol and sex during High School or something?? Doing it is not the problem, them being unaware about what it is, and the effects of it is the real problem. Most of them are clueless! They just say "It's bad". Do they know why it's bad? What happens to your body?

ᄋᄋ轻舟已过万重山 : 이미 이미지가 시궁창 그리고 우리가 안하겠다는데 왜 하라는식으로 인터뷰를 진행하지? 뭔가 마리화나는 별로 위험한게 아닌데 왜 그래 너희 과민하네 라는 반응을 이끌어낼려는 의도적인 인터뷰임 나는 탑이 감빵 가야한다고 생각하고 마약 금지는 계속되야한다고 생각함 적어도 국가가 지정한 선 안에서 지킬건 지켜야지 이건무슨 경우냐 방귀낀 놈들이 성낸다고 그렇게 피고 싶으면 이민가서 피면됨 국적 바꾸고 합법화된나라고 가고 대신 입국도 하지마라 정신이 아주 그러먹음 더럽다 더러워 부모님이 참 기뻐하시겠네

임독수리 : 불편함이 있으면 당연히 합법화 하라고하겠지만 우리가 불편하지 않는다는데 굳이 합법화해야됨?그냥 관심이 없다고 안해도된다고ㅋㅋㅋㅋ아 미개한나라취급 오지네 진심ㅋㅋ

h Chang : 서양관점에서 비아냥 될 문제인가 ㅋㅋ 마약하느라 부럽다 그래 마약선진국들아 어휴 됬냐?

Back To The Lavender Moon : 존나 남의 나라에 감놔라 배놔라 쩐다ㅋㄱ 마리화나가 좋은것도 아니고 합법화 안되어있다고 난리치는 외국인들 보니 짜증이 나네.. 술담배면 이 나라는 충분함. 굳이 이제와서 마리화나를 합법화할 이유도 없고 국민들 대부분이 마약에 대한 생각이 없음. 그렇게 좋으면 그냥 니들끼리 실컷 하세여...

Holy Water has no jams : well people smoke dat alot in my country

Yun Goo Lee : Dura lex, sed lex (The law is harsh but it is the law.) Koreans usually respect the laws and follow them. However, some haters mentioned "blind obedience", but that's not true. If Koreans feel something's not right (ex: laws, upper-level bureaucrat, etc), we act on it. The reason why the 'Marijuana Law' still exist in Korea is simple, that's because they don't care. That law affects almost no one there, since 99.99% Korean never experienced Marijuana in their entire life. It isn't an act of ignorance, but necessity needs. Also, over 10-year sentence is only for severe drug dealers, usually not for individual usage. I love this channel, but I wanted correct it.

gak gak : 외국인들 댓글ㅋㅋ 자기나라 합법화인거 자랑스럽게 얘기하네.자기네들이 왜 합법화되었는지를 알아야지ㅋㅋ중독자 하도 늘어서 밀거래 늘어나고 사회의 암적 존재가 되니깐 차라리 국가에서 싸게 팔면서 중독률줄이려는거지. 우리나라같이 옛날부터 마약청정국인 나라는 굳이 합법화할 필요가 없다. 탑 안타깝지만 공인이 저렇게 사고를 치면 엄중처벌해야한다. 유명인이 저러면 인터뷰처럼 어린친구들이 저런것에 호기심을가지고 유혹에 빠질수있다.

sht Mel : 아시아보스 응원하고 나름 챙겨보는 팬인데 이전까지는 한국분들이 부정적으로 말해도 아니라고 생각하던 쪽이었는데 이 영상까지 보니 한국분들 반응에 꽤 공감돼요...ㅠㅠ 물론 예전 인터뷰 영상처럼 안좋은 의도 아니시고 그런건 알지만 본인은 그렇게 생각하지 않더라도 다수가 한 목소리로 지적하는 부분에 있어서는 다시 한번 생각해봐주셨으면 좋겠어요... 어쨌든 저는 잘 보고 있습니다!!

Kiko Bang : They really know nothing about weed other than it's illegal, bet it's the same for those losers who started a witch hunt against TOP smh.

BelloftheBall : Wow, it's crazy living in a lazy beach town in CA how different things are in comparison. Very interesting differences of attitude in different cultures. It's also funny they have such misinformation from the media that they haven't broken through. It's crazy to me that anyone would go to jail to weed, it's like as minor as some over the counter pain medication.

Kyeongho Na : 담배피고 운전해도 사고 안나지만 대마피고 운전하면 ???? 동공이 부자연스럽게 커졌다 작아졌다를 반복하고 만취한것같아 지기도하고 숙취처럼 머리가 아프기도 하고 집중력에 문제 되는데....궂이 담배보다 중독성 덜하다고 허용해야 한다 라는 논리는 아닌것같음. 서양 특유의 나태함에 대마가 일조를 한다고 생각하는데요. 한국정서상 너무 맞지않음.

발광강아지 : i'm South Korean. for other countries' people, the period 10 years is literally 'maximum.' and in the period, something like distribution of the drug is also involved. So the penalty is normally sentenced 1-2 years. especially, for the first offenders it is usual to get probation. plus, South Korean is not familiar with materials except from Alcohol and Cigarette. i mean, that's not a normal situation where a person smokes Marijuana. So it is very awkward situation on streets to South Korean. and that's the point that we are afraid of the thing. And... individually, i also agree with the law and penalty 'cause i heard that marijuana is the door to go other drugs, so it's better to sentence it very strongly for 'the society'... (this is perhaps as we tend to think the group more than western countries...) that's just ma opinion. i saw several texts to be accused of our law, but we has our own law and that has its own reason. as you do not know our history and the backgrounds, it's not good idea for you to denounce our law and country, just seeing one video clip.

LUTA : 언제부터 서양이 문명사회의 기준이 된거죠??? 마치 대마초가 불법인게 되게 도태된 사회처럼 질문을 유도하시고 그렇게 이끌어가시려고 하는게 너무 눈에 보여서 좀 어이없네요. 우리가 꼭 서양관점에 맞춰야하나요? 전에는 영상 재밌게 봤는데 그래도 항상 뭔가 서양관점에 동양이 되게 뒤떨어지고 문명에 도태된 사회처럼 보고 우리가 거기에 맞춰가야한다고 말하는 느낌이 있었는데 그냥 기분 탓으로 느꼈는데 이번에는 되게 심하네요. 그리고 지금 영상에서는 대마가 뭐가 나빠? 라는 것만 강조하시는 것 같은데 그럼 나쁜 점은 찾아보시긴 했나요? 뭐든 장점과 단점이 있길 마련인데 나쁜 점에 대해서는 언급이 하나도 안되어 있네요. 그리고 다른 영상은 여러 의견을 중심에서 보는 것 같았는데 이번에는 답정너 스타일이네요.

lovelyhee kim : ㅋㅋㅋ 동영상보다 짜증나는건 ㅋㅋ 어휴 그게 시초가 되면 나중에 걷잡을 수 없을 수 없게 되니까 애초에 싹 뿌리를 뽑는거지 그리고 미국 문화어쩌고를 왜 우리한테 맞춤? 우리가 니네 속국이냐

Poorvaja Hatake : The video pretty much summed it up, marijuana may not be that bad to your health, but if it's illegal in your country just don't do it. As simple as that. If it's legal then okay

Andrew Lee : you can see a correlation with places which use a lot of it vs the ones where it is not part of the culture at all. in terms of crime rate, work ethic, etc. Korea and Japan are good examples. Weed is probably about as common for commoners to use in North Korea as cigarettes. the USA has a horrible crime rate, large wealth disparity, and a horrible life expectancy and medical system when the amount of money put into these aspects are concerned, people in the west cannot really criticize the east until their own society functions at a higher level even with use of the drug. Asia has seen the effects of drugs like opium and marijuana has been a natrually growing plant in Korea for thousands of years, it's seeds have been recorded as early as 2000 years ago as having anti-constipation effects in tea, however the leaf has only ever been mentioned to make cloth/rope/paper etc. but never smoked or consumed. why? because the doctors of society over 2000-4000 years decided it was destructive rather than helpful to the health of civilization. it is true, people exist who can function under the effects of the drug, people exist who can resist the temptation to over use, however look at the places with the highest concentration of the drug and the highest use around the world and see the difference in society. look at the poor and poverty struck areas in the USA vs the ones in Korea and Japan and even China which is FAR poorer than any over the slums in the USA, but still people work harder for a fraction of what people would make in the USA, there is far less violent crime despite more organized crime groups, people are more responsible, more self control. it is true, it may not be causation, but it is correlation that has been seen for a very very long time. just because you yourself can function in society with marijuana, doesn't mean society has your self control or tolerance to the drug. also, arguing that "cigarettes and alcohol are also bad for you" is dumb, so, people made a mistake a long time ago and now the society is flooded with harmful substance, dug deep into the culture and impossible to root out. so why not repeat the same mistake and put another one in? this is incredibly short sighted thinking for those who do not see beyond their personal enjoyment of getting high all the time.

정규환 : 아; 오늘 처음 다른 인터뷰 보고 나름 볼만해서 보다보니 점점 이상하다는걸 느꼈는데 나만 그런게 아니었군...ㅋㅋ 미국에 한국인들이 유학가면 미국인들보다 재미교포들이 더 괴롭힌다더니 딱 이런식의 마인드에서 비롯된거였군 ㅋㅋ

wvwvwv vwvwvw : 이 검머외 새낀 한국에서 빨리 꺼져줬으면 좋겠다 진심

ffhh fhjj : ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ아시안 보스는 항상 인터뷰 개같이 하시는거같네요;; 미국이 대마초가 합법이라고 한국도 합법화 해야하나?? 그럼 총기규제도 합법화가 왜나쁘죠?? 경제성장도 될텐데 왜나쁘죠?? 이런식으로 할듯;; 에휴 한국성형에 대해서 다룰때도 느꼈지만 진짜 인터뷰 토나오게해요ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2hearts1seoul : Oooh, very interesting topic choice, you guys! We were actually wondering if you were going to do this one~

에이스벤츄라 : 뭐야 이방송 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 마리화나는 해로운게 아니니 피워도 돼 라는 식으로 인터뷰 하네 ㅋㅋㅋ 우리나라 법이 10년을 하든 뭘하든 마리하나가 기존 마약보다 덜한건 사실이지만 엄연히 마약성은 있다...마리화나 합법화한 미국은 이미 마약에 대해서 손을 쓸수가 없을 정도다 ...마리화나를 하다보면 더 강한 마약을 찾기 시작한다는게 통계이다.....이방송 좋게 봤는데 구독 귾어야 겠네

Natalia Rios : he actually was sincerely sorry and he said he would face any punishment and he said it would not happen again. always supporting him no matter what . people make mistakes and he also apologize

asdjkl3467 : 미국이랑 한국은 상황이 다름. 미국은 고등학교에서도 마약검사견 뜨는 나라고 우리나라는 몇몇 서울지역 빼고 마약거래되는 곳도 없고 통제가 잘 되는데 마약의 시작인 대마초를 합법화시킬 필요는 없다고 생각함.

Pure Clarity : 10 years or 10 months y'all wtf????!!?!!!

Reza IAIN : So many comment pro with marijuana. 😱

lil cozy : when they said 1-2 years in jail as a punishment i DIED

Steven H : Why we have to accept marijuana just like western country??. And Why you guys proud of that? Its just a drug. is there any good thing to it?? Cmon be honestly, you just legalize it because there are too many smokers to control it. Rather than control marijuana , They just choose to give up and demand taxes to it. There r already so many korean who smoke ciggarett even among teens! And people are gradually making negative image to smoking nowadays. Dont make that efforts wasted ...pls no more drugs .Drug should be banned from the roots. 마약합법화된게 좋은건줄알아..

kim m : 담배는 허용하면서 왜 대마는 안되냐고 생각할게 아니라 담배도 금지시켜야 한다고 생각함

Patrick caine : As a Canadian its shocking to see how other countries treat marijuana. To think that 1-2 years in jail would be appropriate is terrifying. i can get drunk and be drunk for hours at a time, i smoke a joint im sober in about an hour. Marijuana is not addictive physically, you can smoke for 10 years everyday and quit the next day and be fine. Alcohol withdrawal is real. you also cant overdose on marijuana as you can with alcohol. its just about using logic and common sense. I feel theirs been some wide spread propaganda in Korea in regards to this subject

Rachel Teh : Doing illegal acts aren't necessarily immoral. If smoking marijuana is legal in some countries in the world, it is important to look at the weightage of the crime as a whole to determine as to whether it is really wrongful in the eyes of the people worldwide and not just in Korea itself. If it is legalized in some countries, there must be some good valid reasons to prove that smoking marijuana isn't that bad until the extent that it should be considered a crime. It is just unfortunate that TOP is living in a country which doesn't legalize this particular act. TOP is still human. Nobody's perfect.

h song : 답정너 인가? 아시아의 편견을 허문다더니, 한국에 대해 편견만 만들고 있다.

김태경 : 대마초가 중독성은 비교적 약하지만 상위 약물로 이동되는 매개체로 불리기도함 그래서 금지로 택하는 나라가 여럿인 이유기도하고. 우리나라가 이렇게하겠다는데 굳이 이슈화하는 이유가 무엇인지.

kopxpert : Alcohol & Tobacco are way worse than marijuana. Think about it, if u allow alcohol & tobacco, why the hell is weed not allowed. Ppl in asian countries (generally speaking) need to be educated on that. In this day & age, ppl should know better. I don't expect asian countries (including my country) to completely legalize weed anytime soon but at this point, there has to be some level of leniency. In this sense, these countries have such backwards mentality imo. WEED ISN"T NECESSARILY A BAD THING. Plenty of scientific research to support this

섬섬옥수 : 미국같은 "선진국"에선 이런데 한국에선 왜 이래요? 이런 투의 질문은 뭐 어쩌라는건지? 맞아요 한국은 후진국이라서 그래요^^ 라고 대답하길 바라는건가?

- Rov : 왜 자꾸 서양서양...뭔가 우리가 서양에 맞춰야되나??이란느낌이드네

뚜두 : 동영상 다 보고 나서 댓글을 읽는편인데 사실 편집된 영상만 봤을때는 답변이 좀 유도되는 느낌이 드네요....

Chef Plef : in my coutry is legal I from Uruguay

John Smith : Even though it won't kill you, I still don't think it's a good idea. People who are high don't make good decisions, which can lead to all sorts of other problems. After a while of smoking it, people on it have short term memory problems and issues with pattern recognition. Even if it isn't physically addictive, it is still psychologically addictive, and what is psychological is still physiological. I know one guy who smokes, and that is where all of his money goes. At the end of the day, he doesn't seem very happy.

nichol9515 : Asian Boss always spreading the truth. Compared to a lot of other street interview channels in Asia, this channel has got to be one of the best. I love that the interviews make people think.

Sirsha Dettmar : I hit my bong before watching this and it’s funny af
