  126. Why Koreans “hate” Japanese..

About Us

Once again, Welcome on our website and thank you for visiting! We would love to introduce ourselves to our readers! Here we go:

Origin
Saetori was originated between Mayo and Nico out of their love for Asia on the 14th of August (4:08 PM Dutch time, That’s right. I even noted it down!). One of the two suddenly had the bright idea. “Hey you know what I miss.. Information about Asia…Mostly Japan and Korea because all we hear is about music groups really.. Maybe it would be fun to start a magazine.. or something” to which the other eagerly replied “YESS!!” and that’s how Saetori was founded.

The name
The name was carefully picked. We have thought long about it, we wanted something that would not only fit us but also out contents. We decided to go with the following words:
Sae –  This is Korean for new, but it can also means bird.
Tori – This is Japanese for Birds as well.
Since we want to bring you the newest stories like a pigeon used to do back in the days, we went for the name New Bird, or better known as Saetori.

What will we write about?
We would like to write about anything that inspires and interests us, We would like to show you, not only the vibrant and modern now, but also the dark pasts and things you might or might not know. We will dig into the history and culture of these countries, tell you the ups and downs, hypes and fashiontrends and much more. If you have any request or want us to cover a certain topic, feel free to contact us!

Here’s some things about us.

Saetori is run by Marjoleine and Nicolette.
We’re from The Netherlands and we’re in our twenties.
We grew up together for about 4 years, living in the same street, even though we difference about 4 years and we lost contact for a long period of time. Our lives have been rather identical in the way we started liking things.. we met again through a concert of a Japanese band that was playing in Amsterdam and as we rode the bus back together we just gave each other the stink eye and added each other again on Facebook after chatting a bit longer. Our moms then told us a couple of days later that we used to be friends and we kind of lost contact in between again.. we were busy with our lives, school, other friends though Always stayed in contact somehow until we decided lets just hang out and do stuff.

Another two of us
In February (2018) we got ourselves and extension to our team and Chantal joined us as a member! Living in another part of The Netherlands she will be able to go to restaurants around her and help us out with posts when work is sucking up all our attention and then in July(2018) Léonie joined our team aswell, This girl is absolutely crazy about Japan and we’re happy to have her!
