Living in Korea, you get used to a myriad of things. You get used to small people not looking where they are going and running into you on the subway and then promptly getting upset when you knock them over by simply standing there. You get used to the hilariously incorrect English on clothes & signs, the idea of a red traffic light being a suggestion not a rule, and even getting harassed by old men who are drunk off their ass at 9:00AM! However, the one thing that I haven’t gotten used to is the constant bombardment of QUALITY TV here in the ROK (Republic of Korea)…..and by QUALITY, I mean CRAP!  

Now don’t get me wrong, I heart Korea!! There are way more good things than bad…Ok, well maybe not WAY more but a decent amount! Yet, I’m pretty sure that if you asked a Korean who are the Biggest Action Movie Stars in the World right now, they would unequivocally say…Steven Seagal or Jean-Claude Van Damme!  This has led me to what I am 100% certain is the most important question EVER to grace mankind!! JCVD or Steven Seagal??? Plus the sheer joy of this idea stops me from crying over the missing Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight (see what I’m reduced to when Sports fails me)!  

Now, I don’t mean a fight between these two now because that fight would suck! If you want to see what a fight between them now would look like go down to your nearest Bingo Hall and tell the grandma in the moo-moo (there is sure to be one) the lady next to her just called her a cheat. Instant Blood Bath and soooo not pretty!  

I’m talking about JCVD and Seagal in their primes when they were 2 of the baddest mofo’s on the planet (around the late 80’s and Early 90’s)! Imagine it for a sec… JCVD screaming, flexing his muscles and doing splits all while Seagal rubs his pony tell then saying something about how he’s one with the Universe and loves bunny rabbits! If you don’t have chills…then you have NO Soul…  

Anyway, I won’t sully your thoughts on the subject with my opinion so check out the stats below and let me know who you’re backing! Because the winner has to face Dolph Lundgren in a battle for the fate of HUMANITY!! (or just the 1980’s!).
