What I dislike about this season is that since teams are strangers they're probably holding back and not being themselves with their partners, this could be good for competition purposes but in the end they won't experience the relationship growth most past teams had. I liked the best seeing teams grow, like Ron learning to respect Christina, Ken & Tina rekindling their relationship, and even the campy proposals at the mat

Idk, but somehow i see a character development and grow while being with stranger during the race...

Recent example is Vanck and Ashton, despite their communication breakdown and very different personalities, they respected each other, and prove they are capable together, even though they are eliminated early... Yeah they are eventually not dating

Ashton & Vanck were fighting and bickering despite what the edit showed.

TAR's first visit to Korea in 7 years, 12 seasons and they go and put it as the penultimate Leg, again and have Sport Stacking and video games as tasks.  :groan:

Sure Koreans love their video games and apparently also excel in sport stacking, but really? With only one Leg and maybe the last time TARUS has a chance to return to South Korea?  :crazy:

I agree with you dryedmangeoz.

Do we really need video games on TAR? I think that would be more better suited to Japan...

Anyway, I hope we get another quote like Brooke's from TAR17

Welp... If you notice it that's ok...

What i mean is...

Stacking cup like really, it can be done anywhere in the world...

Video gaming .... Ok this never be done before, but same point as stacking cups...

If they do K-Pop thing is still acceptable, which like Harajuku task in Japan, is still related

But that... Idk... I feel pesimistic about this leg, but let's wait and watch

We've never had this type of task done before. Not to mention that it's a night leg! Night legs are usually allowed with a bit more leeway in regards to cultural tasks (although one of my favorite night legs ever, TAR5 Russia was cultural but that's another story), and I'm personally excited to see the cups and the game.

And besides, I'm pretty sure there's other tasks for the leg :)

South Korea is home to the Olympics of online gaming, so video games is part of its modern culture. Competitive professional video gamers are usually South Korean, if not Japanese. They compete for big amounts of prize money just to play professionally!

Stacking cups? ??? We'll see? It doesn't look that bad for me.

Yay: I love how we have a video game themed leg! :hoot: :hrt: :yess:
Nay: Why is SoKor F4 again? :( Philippines is here to commiserate. Seriously TAR? These 2 countries (and probably some others too) need something better than F4 legs. I'd be so glad to see SoKor and the Philippines get a future leg each with all the teams still racing. :hoot:

This, took the words out of my mouth. I mean, the leg could still be somewhat interesting. I don't know, maybe because I'm a 'gamer' I see this leg as being easy. I mean, if they go against e-sports like players in the video game, that WOULD be interesting to watch, mostly because of how well they've mastered the game.

As for cup stacking...my 5th grade gym class has us do it and everyone seemed fine doing it. Maybe timing is the factor that frustrated the players?

I actually like end-game Asia visits more since they give more drama.

See: TAR25/TAR23/TAR20/TAR17/TAR13/TAR12/TAR11/TAR6/TAR5/TAR3

And I'd take "F4 leg twice" over visited only once.

In both of the previous South Korea visits, half the leg was at that river near the border. Hopefully it at least doesn't do that again.

This leg looks like it's going to be hilarious

That's a whole other thing to bitch about. Korea is certainly a country that should've been visited more than twice in 28 seasons.

I love the looks of this episode and idc that you guys are complaining :lol:
We've just had a very cultural leg in Greece, two legs with beautiful scenery and traditions in Vietnam, so why not have a heavily modern leg in South Korea?

Computer games have never been featured on TAR, so it's awesome that they've decided to do it! And speed stacking is super fun, so if there is an extreme time limit for that task, it will be great to watch.

Night leg would be fun... but still pesimistic about the leg... yes there  will be other task but these two made me feel it could have been better...


But maybe i was too early to complain so i just wait and see if i'm wrong

Anyway, I wish TAR would have more Legs like Ninh Binh. Exhaust teams. Get them to collapse at the Mat. (In a safe way of course. Nothing that would permanently harm them lol) This was a great, refreshing Leg after years of lazy, oversimplification.

I hate those inside shut away from the city, the sights, the buzz legs, like the game show ones. UGH. No wonder we didn't see them

But LOVED this TAR 29 leg!! TAR classic

PC bangs are definitely hugely popular and having them visit one on a night Leg in Seoul definitely makes absolute sense. Having a technology-type task in Seoul is also a no-brainer.

It's just, after all this time and very possibly the last time TARUS visits Korea, maybe it would've been better to have 2 contrasting Legs. There's certainly a huge variety of things to do in Korea even more than other oft-repeated countries TAR's visited even just since TAR17. But oh well.

Seems like kind of an ironic timetime right now for an episode there to air, with you-know-who to the north ramping things up as of late.
