Ok! So here’s the deal:

Black Day is happening April 14th. I realize that we don’t really talk about Black Day that often in our videos, because we’re married and happy and all, but Black Day is an important part of Korean Culture, so we should do something, SOMETHING, right?

So, here’s what we’ve done: we’ve partnered up with Viki. You know Viki, right? They’re, like, the biggest Drama viewing site online. They’ve got lots of Dramas. It makes sense that we do something with them if we want to do a K-Drama event (and potential future KDrama segments, perhaps?).

This Monday, 7PM PST, we’re going to sit down with some Black Bean Noodles and watch some KDramas on Viki. They’re letting us watch dramas in our video. Woohoo! So, in the spirit of eating black bean noodles together, we figured we should watch Let’s Eat, Episode 1. Yeah! If you’d rather we watch something else, SorryNoCanDo. It took us long enough to get the rights to watch this episode. Maybe for future drama segments we can take requests as to what we should watch? Hmmm? Hint hint hmmmm? HMMMM?

So tune in with us! We’ll laugh together, comment together, share our thoughts. It’ll be like we’re all sitting on the same couch, thousands of miles wide, hanging out, eating Black Bean Noodles, and watching TV. If we imagine hard enough, we might even be able to smell each other. Well, let’s not get that far.

You down? If so, here are the links you’ll need for the day:

Our LiveStream – Watch it here.
What We’re Watching – Let’s Eat – Episode 1

Booya! If you’re bad at remembering days and times, click on the subscribe button below and it should remind you the time of the event.

  1. I’m glad this was “Let’s Eat”. I think it would be really cool if EYK would visit some of the restaurants for FAPFAP. It would be a super awesome tie in extravaganza, And any opportunity to expand the use of the word “extravaganza” in life is worth exploiting, After each episode I was starved. And Barashi ? is one very smart Pomeranian.

    Or, how about I make David Chang’s Ramen Cacio e Pepe, sit with a glass of wine, open one window with the black day event and another window with okcupid. It’s snowing really hard in Chicago right now. It was nearly 80 on Saturday. I need wine and cheese to get through this. (and I’ll be honest, I’ll probably have a third window with Secret Love Affair playing, just to punish myself.)

  3. 2 AM!!
    I’m already sleep deprieved. .
    I salute any uk person watching this!

  4. ahh i can’t watch youtube videos again :( genius holiday it should be universal. at least i can watch the drama and it’s pretty good. +1 for drama segment.

  5. “and potential future KDrama segments, perhaps?” YES YES YES, PLEASE YES!!!!

  6. I can’t watch the drama D:

  7. Dammit. I can’t view the drama in Australia D:

  8. I need to try this. I really really need to try black bean noodles. My friends said it taste just like noodles with too much soy sauce. Nothing so thrilling about it, and nothing near the perfection of our instant noodles. But I would never believe in her comment before I try this myself. However, I can’t really find this noodles in our marts. I mean, I found udon (I know it’s Japanese), ramen (yes, it’s Japanese again), ramyeon (with kimchi taste which is actually tasty in my opinion), and other imported noodles. But black bean noodles is nowhere to be seen and I am sad. TT
    Well, I guess it was not too tasty and I can just send some money to my friend so she can buy me one from another town but… So much of a hassle. -_-

  9. I’ll have to take a trip to the Korean restaurant and grab some black bean noodles.


    last time I almost was able to, I had to drive my sister to the hospital OTZ

  11. The schedule is changed…It says 1:03:15:30. So, exactly when is it??

  12. Oh man, I got really confused, I look up converting time from PSD to GMT+1 (or British Summer Time) and was like “why would it be the next day here? Korea is ahead of us!” Then I realised PSD isn’t for Korea… so looks like unless I want to mess up my sleeping pattern during exam revision period, I can’t watch kdramas at 3 am with you guise! :( But I guess there’s more North American viewers than European T_T

  13. Amy F ;)

    Let’s Eat is great! That’s why I signed up with Viki. I wonder if I can hack diy black bean noodles from scratch? It would be so fun to invite my single friends over too. What a fun idea Simon and Martina:)

  14. Amity Rupe

    Hey Simon and Martina, the countdown timer for the livestream keeps changing. And also it says that the event is scheduled for April 15th. WHY?

  15. you want to know whats even more sad, is i am single and i am actually allergic to the black bean noodle sause. I will forever be single!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and can’t celebrate!!!! :(

  16. PunkyPrincess92

    *gets a bin ready to barf in*

    i already know i can’t watch on Viki!!

  17. NOOOOO!!! I was so excited that I was finally gonna get to watch a live chat then I realized I’m not gonna have internet connection the day it’s on because I’m moving :( so much sadnesssss

  18. So sad, finally you guys start the KDrama watching…but right when I have to start leaving for work! Darn night shift….

    Maaaybe you guys will record it and I can watch that and pretend I am watching it with you instead of just my cat…

    PS- I call shenanigans on Soo Zee being single!

  19. GUISE WATCH REPLY 1994! :D

  20. Sound like fun!
    LOL! Soozee turned into Changmin! XD

  21. um sorry but whats 7:00 PST in PDT???

  22. This is an awesome idea! I’m so there… as long as finals doesn’t make me forget which day it is, which I’ve been doing all week.

  23. OMG! Let’s eat? You gonna be so hungry! It’s a great drama, nice choice :)

  24. I live in Brazil, I’ll just go around the whole city to find this black bean noodles, I want to try it! And… 7PM PST is the local time or.. not? I must calculate what time it’ll be here hahahaha

  25. Hey, a rare Korean male EYK viewer here. I would love to watch you guys do a segment on K drama. They’re goldmine for literary criticism and how Korean culture is stereotyped by the fellow Koreans. Seriously, you could hack any drama and get millions hours worth of content out of them. Why not do it, right?

  26. Masochist as I apperantly am, me the single one am spending black day with my friend and her fiancee trying on wedding dresses. ^_^”

  27. the sadness of living in germany…. not that it is enough to cannot watch the official music videos on youtube…

  28. Miau

    “we might even be able to smell each other”
    I don´t know what to say after watching your last video.

  29. Soozee throughout this entire video was my spirit animal.

  30. I started Let’s Eat awhile ago but it was at the same time as Answer me, 1994 so I focused on that lol. I will continue it though.

  31. You can order the chapagetti instant brand on Amazon grocery

  32. EHRMAGOD so excited to FINALLY be able to watch all of the dramas you guys have been talking about in your videos. I’m going to start with: Coffee Prince

  33. hehhhhhhh~ Viki doesn’t work in Australia at all. Or it doesn’t where I am… this SUCKS!

  34. I watched “Lets Eat”. It was a fun drama

  35. Hehe april 15, I think you guys meant april 14. Omg I cant wait!!! I will just buy a black bean noodle at my korean market !!!

  36. Good thing I have my ZenMate so I can watch Viki now! Darn region restrictions….I’m not sure if I’ll be there since this is at 4 am for me. Yikes.

  37. Convert PST time to Paris time…4 am! Noooooo ToT

  38. So… EXO’s comeback is on black day? For us singles!

  39. vilija

  41. EYK is having an event for singles?! BRB guys, need to go dump my loving boyfriend of 2 years.

    Nah, just kidding. I think I kind of like having him around :L Don’t think I’ll be able to make it, though – it’s at 3am for me! :(

  42. I can’t watch Viki because it doesn’t stream in my country :(((

  43. ummm so viki says that its not avaliable in my region which is melbourne australia… im scared now….

  44. I’m so excited, you guys!! This will be in my time zone, and I can relax at night watching dramas =3.

  45. Simon better show up in lingerie! Also, Martina do you watch a lot of korean dramas? Any chance you could do a video on some of your favorites?

  46. OMGSH LET’S EAT!!! <3<3<3

  47. Soo Zee’s hair is the bomb dot com. just saying.

  48. Annyeonghaseyo Viki fans! Please take my survey about learning language and culture on #Viki. http://tinyurl.com/k4plp5o. Fellow K-Drama lovers, help a chingu out. I’m working on my thesis on the potential for social streaming sites like Viki to develop intercultural competence. Participation is entirely voluntary and anonymous. Kamsahamnida! #화이팅

    • Amy F ;)

      hey, I tried your survey. I started out my kdrama experience with Netflix and Dramafever. I only used Viki recently for 2 kdramas that I didn’t find on DF. Should I still do the survey because it seems like it would mess up the results or should I mentally insert DF wherever it says viki on the survey?

      • Hi Amy! Thanks for trying out the survey. I really appreciate the effort. Unfortunately it is specific to Viki and requires some familiarity with its setup. Thank you again, and if you know people who use the website, please pass the link along.

  49. Aaaahhhh!!!!!! I love this drama so much! I am so going to try and watch it with you!!!!!

  50. I just clicked on the link to the episode of Let’s Eat and it says it’s not available in my region. I’m from Australia! NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

  51. I just started let’s eat yesterday! that sexy food porn! I’m gaining 10 kilos by the time I finish it XD

  52. can’t wait for your KDrama segment…. :D

  53. Sonia C.

    Oh, this is cool! There should be more holidays for us single people. And I have watched lets eat so re-watching it with the S&M and the nasty community is going to be cool. To bad i don’t know where to find black bean noodles where i’m from, I ‘ll eat ramen instead. I really enjoy Let’s Eat although at the beginning is kinda slow it gets better by episode. http://soxxy22.tumblr.com/post/76342329313

  54. Whats black day ???

  55. Sara Napsey

    Watching you guys being all snuggly in the video makes me sad. Now I’m going cry cuz I’m forever arrroneeeee T_T

  56. Oh, this is cool! There should be more holidays for us single people. And I have watched lets eat so re-watching it with the S&M and the nasty community is going to be cool. To bad i don’t know where to find black bean noodles where i’m from, I ‘ll eat ramen instead. I really enjoy Let’s Eat although at the beginning is kinda slow it gets better by episode.

  57. AH too bad T_T That’s like 11am on April 15 in korea isn’t it? T_T I have classes at that time :< boooh ;A;

  58. I wanna celebrate black day with Soo Zee.

  59. This is such an awesome idea! Count me in! Bonus: I haven’t seen this drama yet! Now to find some black bean noodles…

  60. Sonia C.

    Oh, this is cool! There should be more holidays for us single people. And I have watched lets eat so re-watching it with the S&M and the nasty community is going to be cool. To bad i don’t know where to find black bean noodles where i’m from, I ‘ll eat ramen instead.

  61. I’m going to see if they have black bean noodles at the Asian market if not I’ll just get some ramen or udon

  62. Awesomeness…. Black Bean noodles =jangjangmyun right? If that’s the case I will totally be picking some up from a korean restaurant by my house.

  63. This is going to be a perfect Monday night!!! Please dont apologize about not being able to send the black bean noodles. I can always go to my nearest Korean Market or just get choclates :) !!!!

  64. I’m so happy to finally be able to see a live chat, live! Black Bean Noodles or not this is going to be fun!! lol :)

  65. You should totally watch Master’s Sun!!#

  66. Nyuuu I have a final on the 14th AND 15th (…and 17th)! EYK+kdramas+jjajangmyun+PST is my time zone so I finally don’t have to convert anything?! Definitely please do more of these in the future! During non-exam season XD

  67. >< NYUUUUUUUU!!!! Imma be at school working on a lame-o psych project w(;A;)w and and and I still need to catch up on Empress Ki series!!

  68. Jase Aaron

    Speaking of Black Day, this MV just came out, though no idea what it’s about besides… something about Black Day lol

  69. Let’s Eat is actually the best. Don’t get too hooked! But also enjoy your noodlies.

  70. GUYSSSSS! Where did you find your beautiful Soo Zee, and where can I get one…!?

  71. You say April 15th on the blog but April 14th on the video as a heads up IDK if it was intentional!

  72. NOOOOOO I JUST REALIZED ITS ON THE FIRST SEIDER NIGHT NOOOOOOOOOOOOO PASSOVER YOU ARE SCREWING OVER MY PLANS TAT I can’t even eat black bean noodles they aren’t kosher for passover. *cries*

    • I was just thinking the same thing!!! Luckily for me, first night we’re having a small family only seider so as long as I can get all the cooking done earlier, I should still be able to join in for the livechat and drama watching! No noodles though T_T We can nibble matzah together?

    • Ah! I’m so sorry! Hopefully next time we do KDrama streaming you could take part in it?

      • YES! Definitely. I’m such a drama addict TAT how could I not?! To make up for it This saturday I’m doing a Kdrama Meetup where I live. That is why Meetup.com is awesome bc I wouldn’t have met these people otherwise. When you think you are the only one in Indianapolis who likes dramas you are totally wrong. Because since making the group I’ve gotten new friends!

        I hope you guys while eating black bean noodles don’t get too hungry while watching Lets Eat~ Every time I watch that Drama I crave all the food they are eating and then I’m hungry for the rest of the night. Enjoy~

  73. awwwww!!!! I watched that drama already :( But I’ll definitely try to watch the livestream.

  74. Every time I try to watch dramas on Viki I’m blocked because of my region. I know there’s ways around this but I’m like: c’mon gaiz :’( I remember watching “Heartstrings” on Viki and my gosh I cried at the quality XD

  75. I’m feeling the FAC (Forever Alone Club) love up in here xD

  76. i hope i can make it, this sounds so exciting!

  77. Had me at SooZee in Pajamas” !

  78. OMO you are going to make us all hungry. THAT DRAMA IS FOOD PORN I SWEAR. ILL BE THERE!!!!

  79. Can’t wait to hang out with all the single nasties!

  80. I. Am. In.
    And so freaking excited.

  81. YAY! I was so worried the live chat time would be impossible for me to watch… but it’s perfect and ultra-convenient!!! Booya! See you guys Monday night! :D

  82. Yeeeees! Single people unite! I’ll be there with my boy…..-cough- uh, my dog.
    If they try to keep me longer at work on Monday, I’ll be like “NO! I have to go celebrate my singlehood! Duh-nuh-nuh-nuh-NAH!” and run out the door. WIth my dog. <— My singleness is obvious.

  83. Yay! I love that show so much. I watched it with my mom and sister and they finished it without me :(. Plus I can actually watch this because I think its 8 pm my time and I’ll be home from school! Plus we made black bean noodles so I have a stash in the fridge ready for Monday! *does happy dance*
