SOO BAA BAA DOO BAAAA LAAA FAAA. Eternal kisses. Don’t ever leeeavee my siiiiIIIIde. You are so preeetyyyyy!

Or something like that. I don’t know. I don’t watch Dramas. Martina does. I don’t really know what drama songs are like, so Martina made the song for it, while I just re-enacted the scenes that I saw when Martina would burst out laughing, then she’s run into the room crying from laughter and would demand I follow her to the computer so she could show me what’s so funny. Ah: cheesy Korean Drama kiss scenes. I wonder: do Korean audiences find those kiss scenes as ridiculous as we do? You know, I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen Korean people kiss, like, ever. Goodbye kisses or anything. I’ve seen no PDA. Wait: that’s a lie. Last week, we were walking through Hongdae on Saturday night and we saw a cute coffee shop on some side street. It was in the basement of the building, but it had a window so you could see the people inside. It was empty except for one couple. The girl had her back against the wall she was sitting close to, while the guy had his face nuzzled in her chest, and he would lift his face up to try to kiss her but she wouldn’t kiss back. We stood there, staring at them for a couple of minutes, by the window, until the girl looked up, saw us, and in shocked pushed the guy away. We waved to her and walked away. Point of the story is this: Korean drama kisses are…umm, I don’t know how that relates to the story I told. I just thought it was funny.

Anyhow, the point of this video isn’t supposed to be bad dramas or animes or whatnot. The point is that Cherry Blossom Season is almost all finished. We wanted to play around in some of the Cherry Blossoms before the wind and rain blew and washed them all away. When they’re in full bloom, they’re utterly gorgeous, and make you feel like Spring is in full session. But they’re so quick to fly away. While we were filming this, we saw the gusts of wind taking the blossoms off of their branches, and we thought we were lucky to be there now, because they’d be gone in a day or so. Luckily, we still have some Cherry Blossoms around now, but not as many. Not as many. Why am I talking about this like this is life and death, and I’m mentioning a friend that lost his life or something? “Soon, young chap, you’ll remember the face of the soldier you called your daddy.” What does that even mean? Hell: I’m so bad at writing this kind of stuff. I should stick to Korean Drama Song lyrics.

So, yeah! That’s it for this week’s WANK. We got goofy, and then this blog post got weird. We’ve got a bunch of bloopers again for this week, as always. Isn’t it obvious? Check em out if you feel like some more lola:

  1. I haven’t watched the video, but the blog post was so full of funny winningness (idk…did I just make up a word). So awkwardly hilarious and quite close to the rambling that I usually do anytime I write a comment…

  6. Awesome video guys :) I was clapping with glee at your re-enactments. Totally legit. Added bonus of confusing my 5 yo with your cheesy fake kissing

    • my 9 yo son was like “gah.. are they gonna do that kissing thing like your dramas mom?” with that ewwy kid face.
      then when it was over he said “yeah, they did that just like in the shows.”

      seriously, I’m not sure what cracked me up more, the WANK, or my son’s reaction.

      • That’s awesome. The bloopers were what got her. “They’re doing it again!?! They already did that. Why are they still kissing?”

  7. My mother has two Plum Blossom trees in her yard. They’re pretty similar in appearance to the Cherry Blossom trees and absolutely gorgeous for the week they are in bloom. The one in her backyard is on it’s deathbed unfortunately. Five years ago (we hadn’t noticed until the damage was done) it had some sort of a bug infestation which ate a long hole into the backside of the tree. An angle we rarely see. It took the following years bloom for me to notice something was wrong. Only about half of the tree had flowers and fruit. I looked up a whole bunch of ways to treat it but none of them seemed to work as it’s blooms were continually decreasing. The summer before last, a woman my mother met through some people at work suggested this salve she makes for when her apple trees are damaged by certain buggies. So we’ve been getting that from her since and last years bloom was slightly better, but not much. I’m afraid we may have to dig it up if it doesn’t begin to get any better. Close to that tree is another type of Cherry Blossom tree which is called a Kwanzan. The flowers are pink and large with many more petals than those which you’ve shot here in this video. The problem is that dead and near dead plants still suck nutrients from the soil, even more so because they are trying to survive. Unfortunately that will greatly effect anything growing nearby :(

  12. Some my first K Drama (that I started a few weeks ago) is Iris. I picked it because of TOP. A bit confused since it is nothing like the dramas you described Simon. It is really good and I love the story and the characters. Not once have I heard the word Oppa. The women are treated (in the workplace) like equals and have not seen one ounce of Aeygo (sp). So am I watching the wrong shows?

    • Simon and Martina are more referring to the romantic dramas, the ones aimed to be cutesy and lovey-dovey. Like Boys Over Flowers, etc. IRIS is more of an action/suspense drama and thus doesn’t fall into that category of awkward kisses… Er. Still a great drama though! (I also really love ATHENA. ^^)

      4 years ago
      • I guess they are all lumped under K drama. A shame since the way SM describe “those” dramas does not reflect all of Korean dramas. I am not sure if I would like the Boys Over Flower types of shows. They seem more like K Soap than actual K Drama.

        4 years ago
        • I suppose they could’ve been more specific, but it’s more often than not the romantic genre of dramas that make up the majority of popular ones. Everyone has their preference though, which is why I’m glad Korea does cater to other genres for those of us who also enjoy dramas in the vein of IRIS, Poseidon, The Fugitive, etc. :)

          4 years ago
        • I’d say a mix, but it’s hard to say without having seen many, haha. IRIS definitely does have a love story, just as ATHENA did; having that underlying story often makes the drama flow better and is an additional avenue of suspense. I’d say give it a shot! Nothing ventured, nothing gained. ^^

        • thanks! The one I was talking about is Jang Ok Jung, Live in Love. I think I will try it after I finish Iris.

      • Apparently lots of Nasties have already experienced this same spectacle. I’m glad you were saved. XD

        Side effect of being so awesome, Simon and Martina. You cause public embarrassment for all! Worth it though. :P

  22. Ren

    The Korean in the last skit was hilarious.
    “Hey! Don’t do it!”
    “Hello (phone style)?! What is it?!”
    “*girly grunts*”

    The background song was hilarious too. It was really funny.
    And lol at the couple walking and stopping like “Oh…” They were considerate, huh? I always wondered if you get less weird stares because you’re foreigners, or just because you have a camera.

  23. Shouldn’t have watched this at work! I was in tears laughing so hard. Your videos should come with a NSFWBOH (not safe for work because of hilariousness) warning label.

    Also – editing for this video was on point, son! Awesome job whoever did this (Intern Leigh?)

  28. Hahah you guys are so dorky XD And yeah, I agree about the PDA thing, at least, its the same in China, me and my boyfriend are super snuggly and I feel like I really need to tone it down these days… i mean its not like people gasp in horror if I kiss him in public, but it does feel kind of…. awkward?

    By the way, I know you did a video about foreign students a while back, and I thought that now you have Intern Leigh on board she should totally do another one about studying in Korea! (I realise she’s busy and what not, but it’d be great to get some footage in classrooms, university canteens, etc. if her teachers were cool with that :D)

  30. cherry blossoms = reminds me of Card Chaptors when she is standing on top of the tower and the wind blows cherry blossoms around her … or maybe that was sailor moon :/

  31. Aww Poor Minho, stuck in the friendzone. xD

    Martina did you have the giggles during the kiss scene? I couldn’t help but laugh with you. Simon, you’ll have to have garlic breath or something next time and get revenge :P

    I just remembered that we had a cherry blossom tree at my house as a kid. When we moved the new owners cut it down :( I wish I had photos of it, it was so pretty when it flowered.

      Heh. I laughed so much this morning thanks to Simon and Martina. I’m totally using that when it’s windy outside.
      Friend: “It’s so windy!”
      Me: “It’s because I’m out here. Gusts of win.”
      Friend: *ducks away pretending not to know me*
