JUSTICE!! SWEET SWEET JUSTICE!
Here’s the backstory for people that are new viewers: a while ago we tried going to the Coffee Prince Coffee Shop in Hongdae, but the management there weren’t cooperative. So then we tried going to the Coffee Prince House, but we got lost in the woods and almost dieded. We surrendered. We knew that making a video about Coffee Prince just wasn’t meant to be.
Then something cool happened. Really cool. You know that we helped out with the YouTube Music Awards recently, right? Well, it was sponsored by Kia, and we were speaking with Kia for a while now about working on something together. As you might notice, most of our WANKs and FAPFAPs are in Seoul, but we barely go outside of that. It’s hella difficult and expensive to bring around our equipment everywhere. We tried it once for our Eatyourkimchi Road Trip, and it seemed like you liked it, so we want to do more stuff like that where we can travel around and shoot more videos. But, without a car, that’s kinda difficult. Kia stepped up to the plate and said they wanted to work with us. That’s awesome!
The first thing we knew we’d do with the car: drive to the Coffee Prince House ourselves. BOOYA! And it worked! We got there, minus a few snags along the way, because it’s located in such a complicated area, but we got there! Huzzah!
Here’s the thing, though: this video with Kia was just a test run. They have to see that it worked out well, and if people like the video. So, this is where we’re hoping you can come in: If you like this video, and want to see us driving to places more, let Kia know. Head over to our video on YouTube and give it a like. We just tweeted this link out. Retweet it! Here it is below:

Or just send @Kia_Motors a tweet letting them know that you liked the video! Hopefully Kia will be impressed, and we can follow through with our plan to make more travel videos. Next stop: G-Dragon’s pension? What do you guise think? Hopefully all goes well and we can keep on making videos outside of Seoul.
Anyhow, we got loads of extra footage that didn’t make the final cut, including an old man sitting and smoking on a scooter/wagon combo. Totally badass:
