Coffee Prince Round 2: Lost in the Woods

November 2, 2012

Ok, so this was quite possibly our most bizarre WANK ever, and I think we’re going to give up on Coffee Prince from now on. Martina wants to give it one last go for us to film something Coffee Prince related, but I think we’re getting a clear sign from the universe telling us to stay the hell away from it. We tried filming it a while ago and ran into a jerk. We tried filming a different part of it yesterday and ran into a mountain. I don’t want to know what comes next. I just don’t like it!

To be fair, I could just be overblowing the fact that we took one bad turn and ended up somewhere completely different. That’s understandable. It’s not like this place is easy to find. You know, now that I think abut it, it’s not like many places in Korea are easy to find. Every time I try to explain to someone how to get somewhere, the directions are always rather abstract, unless it’s very close to a subway stop. Funny thing, too: we have the actual address of this coffee shop, and thought about taking a taxi there, but then we thought, Nah! Walking there will be a great adventure! Let’s show everyone what walking there is like. Famous last words, right there.

What we can say, though, is that we’re not upset about yesterday. We have the ability to appreciate truly ridiculous situations, and we thought it’s quite hilarious how this video about a coffee shop turned into a video about two whiny hipsters lost in the woods. Yes, we were whining, but we were laughing at ourselves doing it the whole time. We never really felt a sense of danger whatsoever. We just found it hilarious. Well, we did start worrying a bit when it started getting dark, because our eyesight is still crappy (this damn pink eye is taking FOREVER to clear up) and walking with camera gear on uneven steps in the woods isn’t the best for flimsy ankles. Again, that’s just more hipster whining. We laughed at ourselves the whole time.

Best part of the story came at the very end of it when we went to the cupcake shop. After we ate the cupcakes (don’t be fooled: I shared the cupcakes with Martina. I’m not a meanie!) we decided to buy one more for our friend. Turns out, though, that the cupcake shop owner recognized us and knows our videos. He gave us a free cupcake. MY LIFE’S WORK IS NOW FREAKING COMPLETE! FREE CUPCAKES! You Nasties make this job totally the best job in the world.

Side note: we’re talking as if we’re living a rockstar lifestyle for getting free cupcakes. Rockstars get free cars and stuff. I don’t want no damn cars, especially considering What Driving is Like in Korea. Seriously – I wouldn’t want a car even if you gave it to me. Good cupcakes, though, I will not turn down.

These cupcakes are awesome. If you’re ever in Buam-Dong check this place out. In fact, you should go to Buam-Dong, not for the Coffee Prince shop, but for these cupcakes. Seriously, they’re so freaking good! We’ve had lots of mediocre cupcakes here in Korea, but these cupcakes are so moist and dense and bloody delicious. We took their business card just to show you. GO, YOU TOURING KOREA NASTIES! CHECK OUT THEIR CUPCAKES! Tell them we sent you!

Cupcake Shop Business Card

Anyhow, it’s hard to say that we’ve got bloopers this week, because it seems like this entire freaking WANK was a blooper reel, but we do have some extra scenes that we cut out, just in case you didn’t have enough of our stumbling and whining. Check em out!

  1. I have been to the place you were looking for – the area didn’t look like any of the places you went lol! – My Korean friend took me for a drive in his car and pointed it out to me (Japanese tourists were stood outside lol) we then went to a lovely place that had a roof terrace for coffee (I have seen it since in dramas!) – it overlooked an area where lots of film producers lived – there was even a house shaped like an old fashioned diving helmet!

  2. Even though this was a next Coffee Prince fail (and a hilarious one at that!), I just realized something:

    In one of your earlier WANKs, at Samchungdong, didn’t you go down this lane where Martina mentioned that a big scene from Coffee Prince happened there? I think it was at the 00:52 second mark…

    I know I sound like a EYK dork, but maybe there’s not a curse after all!

  5. “For white people sacrifice.” Oh my GOD, you guise…You slay me.

    I’m so happy you made it home safely, man, what a HANK, indeed. Simon, imo, you should let Martina plan more WANKs. This was like watching that amazing Halloween episode of your favorite TV show, except better because…

    When all else fails.
    Super Junior saves the day.

    Guess they really are Supermen.

    Thanks for the amazing, hilarious WANK, you guise! I hope your pink eye goes away majorly soon!

  12. Monster Jaejoong was actually kind of scary @.@ Never thought I’d think that Jaejoong was creepy, ha. Glad you made it all the way back down the mountain. Still confused about one thing: you said the taxi driver drove you around the corner when you told him the address. Was that the Coffee Prince house address? If so, why didn’t you film it after all it took to get there?

    4 years ago
    • Hey jas~ They told the taxi driver the address to the bus stop, not the Coffee Prince shop. When Martina told Simon they could just tell the taxi driver to take them to the Coffee Prince shop so they could say they at least got there, Simon was like “Eff. NO.” So they just ended up at the bus stop, which, ironically, was only a corner away from where they initially picked up the taxi driver; hence why he must have been thinking “wow, lazy foreigners,” according to Martina. Lol~

      Hope this cleared it up for you. :)

      • Whoops! I don’t know why my mind skipped over that part. Maybe it was scary-Jaejoong shock? :P Thanks for explaining.

        More importantly: Welcome back to EYK! I haven’t seen you around for a while. You missed some epik times in the Don’t Hate Me thread :) I can’t seem to spell ‘epic’ properly anymore, lol.

  17. Despite your original plan going down the drain, this WANK had me laughing the entire time. In fact, I’m pretty sure if I ever attempt to find the location of Shortcake in Buamdong I will similarly get lost ::cough:: in the woods — I’m horrible with directions. P.S. I enjoyed the adventure in the woods. Fun times!

    Simon I loved the “Captain’s log” bits hahaha my inner trekkie is so happy right now.

    but wait you took a 1 minute taxi ride to the place but didn’t film?

    • Did you say Singapore? Damn this reminds me of getting lost in Singapore too… attempting a shortcut through a park but park is huge and totally looks like a forest! Random exercise equipment too… When i finally got out of the park, probably like an hour or 2, i came out just a couple of blocks from where i got in! Lol i end up getting a cab… T_T

  22. Bwuahahah! You guys are too funny. I loved how even though you were both like; OMG Why are we walking through this forest on Halloween? We gonna die! You still kept going. I wouldn’t have done it… But then again I’m not white so maybe I would have been safe. :-p

  24. It’s official whenever anything fail happens on a WANK I’m going to consider it as The Coffee Prince Curse! Um, well that’s a bit wordy. I’m up for suggestions on what the curse should be called. Let’s all hipster whine together!

  26. I think you should do more of those kind of WANKs getting lost is one of my favorite things when i’m in a foreign country you never know what your going to find.

  27. Oh my god – I watched this in bed, in the dark, at 2:30 AM and the sound effects and creepy editing scared the poop out of me, lololol. Even the parts with werejoong xD. I actually had to pause the video at one point to give my nerves a break! Good job on your Halloween HANK guys :D.

    That aside, your hiking adventure looked like a lot of fun even if you didn’t make it to sweeper’s dad’s house… I’m jealous! I’m also dying for some cupcakes, that berry one looked so delicious ㅠㅠ.

  28. The deliciousness of the world tried to warn you; first the mandu place and now the cupcake shop. It tried to tempt you into stopping your crazy adventure but still you forged ahead! On a positive note, you worked off those cupcakes right?

  29. HAHAHAAHAHA I remember when I walked up from Myeongdong to Namsan Cable Car ride. They said it was just 10 minute walk… but what the hell. :| HAHAHAHA Nevertheless another entertaining WANK even you got lost :( =)))
