Special Black Day KDrama Event!

April 11, 2014

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.

  2. 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. 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. -_-

  4. OMFG I’M SO EXCITED TO FINALLY BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN ONE OF YOUR AWESOME STUFF! :D

  5. 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?

  6. agreed!

  7. 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

  8. 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:)

  13. 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?

  29. 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

  45. 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*

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

      3 years ago
      • 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~

        3 years ago
    • 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?

      3 years ago
      • yes and put some charosset on it.
