Hooray! Here’s the second video from our three movies with Arirang TV. The first one we did was about Korean Food Delivery. That same day of filming we also recorded this episode, which was a lot easier to film, because they just asked about this site and blogging in Korea. Woohoo! No running around in the cold or freezing or anything like that. One thing that’s a little sad about this video, though, is that it’s mostly just Simon in it. Martina was at school for the day, and so she couldn’t make an appearance in this video. Again. Too bad! Same is true of the third video we did for Arirang. Seems like people just being introduced to us through Arirang will be surprised to see Martina in the vids. Ha!

Simon had to mention the height thing, because a lot of people are still totally shocked to see how tall he is in real life. It’s probably the second thing people say to us when they meet us. Right after “nice to meet you” we get “wow! You’re so tall!” FYI, Simon’s 6’4 or so, roughly 195cm. Winner! Anyhow, filming the Music Mondays is a bit of a pain because Simon is mostly in the splits while filming them. Wreaks havoc on his ankles afterwards.

The remote bit was something we hoped people noticed as well. A bunch of people have asked about the remote and why it’s taped to the couch. Well, now you know! And it’ll never leave the couch! Sure, a lot of the buttons are covered by the tape, but we don’t really use the remote for anything more than power on and power off. If we watch TV, it’s through the computer, and the sound is through the speakers attached to the computer. The TV we like to think of as just a bigger screen. Sure wish it was HD, though.

On a cool side note, we were just featured in Yonhap News. Pretty cool! That, along with the other segment we did for KBS on Korea Blogs makes it seem like blogging’s starting to become a bit more interesting to the powers that be in Korea. Sweet. We’ve got a list of some cool Korea Blogs on our Korean Blog List, so check that out while you’re at it. Also, some people might read that Yonhap article as stating that we’ll leave Korea once Martina’s contract is up, but that’s not the case. Once Martina stops teaching, we plan to make even more videos about Korea as we’ll have the chance to travel around Korea a lot more! Yes, we’ll be broke and living in a tiny hole while eating Shin Ramen everyday (with a sign “Will Make Videos For Galbi”), but YAY! Making videos is fun! On a side note, if you’re reading this and are the Korean Government, how about hooking us up with a free place to live or, you know….money? I’m just sayin…

And, as always, JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* are awesome for so diligently translating all of our videos into Korean. Huzzah!

  1. Aw, Simon looks so lonely without Martina. 8C

  2. Hope you keep that enthusiasm for living like you do :)

    you’re my favorite couple in all Korea x)

    thanks for blogging and make it a lifestyle!

  3. I wonder if Jesus on the cross is still stuck too? :)

  4. When you guys decide to be poor and live in a box so you can do videos full time (and eventually go to DVD – it's bound to happen) I will support you by buying them! :)

  5. That's a little worrying. Wouldn't it be possible for you guys to renew your school contracts…or maybe find another school to teach in?

  6. That's the way to never lose the remote!:P

    Reading the article you linked to… Thank you for all your effort, we appreciate it!:D

  7. Yeah, I'm not sure how that works, either. We'd freaking love to be able to do that, though! BAM!

  8. what kindda funky tripod/monopod is Simon carrying? it's really cool haha.

  9. talk about looking around your room, was there somebody in the, i think, kitchen in that shot?

  10. someone linked your article to omona :D http://community.livejournal.com/omonatheydidnt/5
    just thought you'd like to know

  11. Yeah, I wish Martina was in more of the clips. Instead it looks like it's just Simon doing it all. And hooray Canada!

  12. Toronto represent! By the way, what's the weather like over there? I heard it was stupid cold.

  13. Awww. This was nice. I'm happy you guys are making these type of videos for us. LOL The remote control thing is a great idea! My family would always lose theirs too. But not as much as before. I will definitely do that too when I get frustrated of not being able to find it. Thanks ^_^

  14. Wow. Awesome video! Maybe not as entertaining as some others, but that is made up for by the insight into the dedication that you guys have to making cool stuff for us to watch. Yo, thanks so much Simon and Martina, seriously, and best of luck in the full time blogging/travel video-ing thingy too. I hope the ROK does comp you an apartment or something b/c your vids definitely help promote the ROK.
