Season three of the series Level Up! is filmed in Slovenia, and while not all 40 (short) episodes are on YouTube, or able to be played outside Korea, there are enough to give you a taste of how the country is being shown to Asian viewers, with the helpful addition of English subtitles.
The YouTubeplaylist starts with episode 4, below, although all the available episodes can also be found on one page, here..
To those unfamiliar with the conventions of East Asian television, the visual overload might seem confusing, but writing as someone who spent just under two decades in the region, this is rather standard fare.

Well, a man can dream.
