South Korea in the Perspective of a Filipino Expatriate

An OFW in Korea Shows How to Have Fun at Work

Who says working in Korea as an EPS is Demeaning, Dirty and Deadly? Well, not for a Cebuano OFW who somehow managed to change the meaning of 3D into Deviant, Deliberate and Dynamic. His funny videos went viral online, at least for OFWs here in South Korea. Most of his videos are all about his short comical stints at work. The working environment in a manufacturing industry maybe intimidating for some, but this guy made funny shows out of it.

The guy behind these epic videos is no other than Loth Orlanes Procurato. He is from Cebu City and he has been working here in South Korea as a factory worker since November 9, 2010. He is working in a company that manufactures icebox and thermos at Gwangju City at Gyeongi-do. However funny he may be in his videos, not everybody knows that he co-manage CebuPhil Korean Language training center presently operating in Cebu and Bohol. They offer Korean language training for those who want to study the language for future employment here in Korea.

His serious business and manly working environment did not stop him from dressing like a girl and entertain people with his innate talent of making people laugh. Just take for example this one video that made me chuckle. So he came to work one Saturday morning as a cross dresser factory worker. He acted like a TV journalist doing some documentary show introducing his work in a very funny way. Productivity wise, I guess the guy is doing the job properly, so the company can tolerate him for this. The video below was actually taken by his supervisor, enough to say that the boss supports him for this.



Doing some repetitive and no-brainer tasks will never be boring for Loth. He can just mess around with his "kakulitan" without compromising his duty. One good laugh is never bad enough at work place. How about dancing while working with permission from your boss? hahaha



He can even play jokes at some Korean co-workers at work. While others are busy doing their respective working assignments, he is also busy feeding his co-workers with Cherry...hahaha... I like how game are his co-workers at his antics.


Laughter is indeed a good medicine. No matter how hard it is to work in a factory plus the fact that you are being away from family, you can temporarily forget it once you start laughing. I guess it's not bad to being playful at work sometimes as long as your duties are not compromised. It's a Filipino trait after all, we always find a way to have fun even at a very desperate situation.

For you Loth, kudos for sharing with us your mishaps and misadventures at work. You made us all laugh.

  4. I didn't watch the video because I have an erratic internet connection but based on the story he strives hard to earn a decent living at South Korea and laughter is his weapon. Yes, it's a good medicine and laughing can make you look younger.
