No, the overtitles are Wenzhounese written in Hanzi, i.e. Etymologically correct Hanzi of the correspondent Wenzhounese words.

Oh OK, interesting!

I also found the original Mandarin version. The subtitles in the video itself are in Traditional Chinese, but you can also click on CC to turn on captions in either English or Korean (except for the part at the very end, where subtitles are only available in Chinese). It seems that the Wenzhounese version is slightly different from the original (so not a 100% faithful translation but rather adapted a bit):
