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:


  1. I love that KIA did this, they have opened up to the world. I am not going to lie I am more likely to look at a KIA car now then any other type because they are open minded and help you guys. normally that doesn’t effect me when it comes to product placement. But i know this wasn’t really and that it was because they did want to work with you. but maybe it was either Go KIA

  2. That’s one crazy beautiful place. Never seen the drama, but damn, dat view! Good to see that the trilogy is finally done. (HITW is still one of the best videos you both have done imo)
    *Photography Nerd Alert* I also noticed that Sony RX-100 II camera you guys got there. I have the original model so I’m wondering what are your opinions on it. As always, keep up the good work.

  3. This is so coooooool!!!!!!!! I feel like fangirl moment kyyyaaaaaaaa…. I mean kia(?) Jajajajaahahha thanks kia >\\<

  4. If you get a car you should have a segment about the crazy things you’ll see on the roads, especially outside of Seoul. In this picture, taken down the road from our apartment in Dongducheon, there’s a scooter towing a cart riding down the road like it’s nothing. Probably going to harvest his crops.

  5. SIMON! MARTINA! Can you do a Nightlife in Hongdae part 2!? PUHLEASE~ ^~^

  6. if you really go to gd’s pension vita dolce, I’ll be skdajdlkhjdKLGSLFGAUK

  7. Hahahha THIS IS GREAT!!! Love your wanks, and fapfaps and all of the other things you do!! Dont worry Martina – when you do open my package – soon I hope – and I do hope that everything is ok (I sent my package in the beginning of october…) you will see a suprise ;D
    Question: How much “fika” (cooffee/hot chocolate and cake did you eat during that day!? XD

    Kia IS the best – thats what we driving!!! :)

  8. Wow, the hipsters in the woods was a year ago.. damn time flies. Glad you guys broke the curse though! XD

  9. I climbed that mountain in the background back in late April. I actually saw the coffee shop from the mountain too on my way down. Wasn’t able to go since I didn’t know how to get there though :(. Totally thought of the hipsters in the woods video when I was climbing the mountain though haha.

  10. You guys remind me of someone. Whenever they drive the car they always get lost even with GPS. But I loved the what you did at the bottom of the screen with the start to destination line.
    When I saw the title I started to laugh straight away since I realised that you guys finally broke the curse. Hipsters lost in the woods was probably the best one out of the 3 of them, with the whole getting lost in the woods one.
    Looking foreword till the next W.A.N.K.

  11. I’ve been sick for 3 days without my usual EYK dose, and now I am better after this. You two are SO funny.

  12. DaYoung Yun

    I remember the two other videos. I’m so happy you broke the curse! EYK SUCCESS!

  13. My all time favorite video of yours is Hipsters lost in the Woods because I can relate to it when my friends and I got lost in the woods trying to find a duck pond that didn’t exist.

    Also, love that the car is yellow :)

  14. PunkyPrincess92

    “and this is the famous chickens….beware Onew!!” bahahahaha!!!
    YAY!! congrats on breaking the curse!!!

  15. Jennifer Miller

    Omg! Please go to GD’s pension!!! @_@ That would be awesome!

  16. GAH!!!!! IT’S OPEN THE HAPPY!!!! > . . < You finally made it :D:D:D

    Thank you!!


  17. kawaii_candie

    Simon, stop telling Martina she looks fat!!! >_<
    even as a joke, it's not good for a girl's ego, you know! :p

  18. “Our failure rating is fail.”

    BWHAHAHAHA! Best line ever!

  19. Haha omg, i remember the bad accident. Mystery has finally been solve :)

    One day, I’ll go there to see it.

  20. Gina-gina Maye

    seu pa deu ji…

  21. By the way, our whole family aside from my brother drives KIAs. My mom and I have one black and one light blue Spectra, my grandma has a black Optima, and my dad has a bright ass blue Forte. Like electric blue and I SO WANT IT but I have mine, sooooo….

  22. Oh dear, that was a year ago?

  23. I’m so proud of you guys! :D

  24. Also, love how in the bloopers Simon can call Martina fat and she doesn’t get offended like most people would be all “OMG IM NOT FAT! -so funny but not really cries-. You guys are my OTP :3

  25. Long term nasty here :DD OMG this video was hilarious from the first few minutes~ I really need to watch Coffee Prince again (you guys are the reason i watched it in the first place!)

  26. You guise are such a lovey dovey couple. i lurve u guise~~!! <3

  27. Haven’t watched yet, but there is so much yes in that post! DEW EET KIA! You know, I kinda actually really like KIA. I have been saying for ages when I am getting enough hours and have some steady savings going I want to take a look at their cars. I really liked what I heard and read about the KIA Soul, and it seems the new one is going to be even better. Them helping out a pair of my favorite people makes me like them even more :). OOOH WATCHING NOW. That car is beautiful. I hope you dish on how it drives, and if you didn’t, :D can you dish on how it drives?

  28. Woo! Awesome trip guys! I loved Simon trying to fork those people out of the way. And now I know what to send you guys in a gift box. Marshmallows!!! :)

  29. It was really nice to see other people having the same exact conversation my husband and I have in those moments. My favorite quote from our adventures: “I don’t know, I’m just as lost as you are.”

  30. For all those that are having trouble finding this place on a map, here’s a Google maps link (can open on phone to for nav)


  31. Rent 2 PWN

    Best…W.A.N.K. evah! Oh my god this was so epic! I too have experienced first hand the horror and betrayal of Korean GPS. I went around the same crazy narrow steep streets 3 times trying to find The Pacific Hotel in Myeong Dong!

  32. irritablevowel

    Coincidence! Maybe two days ago I wondered, “Did Simon and Martina ever get to go to that Coffee Prince place on the mountain?” And here you are! I clearly manifested an answer.

  33. haha!! We always have these crazy misadventures trying to find places in Korea!!!! I am sad to say that it takes me about 2 or 3 times to find something. Exasperating, but fun!!! We have had many, many epic fails as well. Glad to know we are not alone :)

  34. Have you guys seen the Big Bang version of Coffee Prince?! I’ve seen it and it’s so funny!!! Martina and Simon you guys should go watch it!

  35. Yes! I want you guys to visit awesome places! Kia go for it!

  36. Guys..why do you have a pet carrier in the car with you? Just curious.

  37. OHMERGAWD!!!!! I was going to ask you guys about GD’s Pension. Freaking GREAT!!! The best part is that place is not to pricey So I plan on staying there at least once in my life ^_^

  38. YES!!! you guys finally found the coffee shop! I am so happy right now I thought it would never happen. :D

  39. YES!!! you guys finally found the coffee shop! I an so happy right now I thought it would never happen. :D

  40. YAY! You made it! 3rd time really is a charm. This time! hehe

  41. So basically never let Simon navigate? Or do Korean GPSes not give step by step directions as you go?

  42. *clap clap* You did it, I’m proud of you! Although I loved the WANKs for both failed attempts. The first one for the cats (seriously, I need a cafe like this in my city… kitties~~♡ ) and Lost in the Woods was just hilarious :D And now that I rewatched it, it cracked me up even more because around the 11:08 mark there’s the exact same howl sound effect as in EXO’s Wolf.

    I haven’t watched Coffee Prince but that Coffe Prince House looks great, and the view is wonderful, no wonder they have so many visitors coming there. I’d love to go there, but still I would love to go to that cupcake shop even more… Cupcakes~~♡

    Sorry I just couldn’t stop myself, blame BTS and YT comments.

  43. FINALLY!!! :D

  44. KATHyphenTUN

    Man that lost in the woods episode has to be my favorite wank to date! But it is nice to finally break the curse! Congrats! *claps*

  45. wow, this was the perfect non-ad-ad, i was actually really glad you guys couldnt find the car and then had a wonky path there, a coffee prince wank would NOT BE COMPLETE without some hilarious fails along the way, im super excited for more road trips, please keep up the bumbliness!!

  46. hahahaha!! Oh My you guys can make my day better!! This is really funny ♥ luv u *-*

  47. Oh my gosh! So excited! Your Coffee Prince adventures are always my favourite ^.^
    Right, enough of that. Time to Watch! (p.s. don’t get lost in the woods :P)

  48. Does Martina have kitty-dar like me? WE CAN HAVE CONVERSATIONS AND THEN HAD A CAT ADD MOMENT AND JUST GO BEFRIEND THE KITTIES! Also, love Simon’s “Cake-y Cake-y Cake-y”

  49. How many others immediately thought //Whoa their apartment! It’s been so long since I’ve seen that…// and then felt like a stalker??

  50. The third time is always the charm. So that was destiny’s way of making you wait until now. Oh that destiny, she’s a cruel-evil little biaatch when you want to accomplish your goals your own way on your own time.

  51. You finally did it! Congratulations :D The bloopers on this one are hilarious, though. Especially the adorable part when Martina starts talking about celebrities and stops in the middle of a sentence and you both said “celebritaaaays” all cute like together. You guise kill me, I wanna grow up to be you! *barfs rainbows and puppies*

  52. I really liked the videos from the first two attempts to see the Coffee Prince Shop. It was nice to watch them again. The kitties, cupcakes, and yummy popsicles. Three of my favorite things!

  53. So happy you guys finally found it. The view is absolutely stunning. This is a definite “must see” when I go to Korea!

  54. THE CURSE IS BROKEN!!! YAY!!! Seriously guys, that scrolling of words at the end was super fast. I CAN’T READ THAT FAST! Ahywhoo…glad you two finally made it there!

  55. Oh wow day made cause guess what show I am watching at this moment Coffee prince you guys read my mind! best day evar! yay! tee hee I am just so nasty!

  56. Akira Miyashi

    YAY!!! Successssss!!!! Congratulations on breaking the curse! Hahahah! Really loved this WANK. Hope that KIA will continue collaborating with you guise~ Take us to those traditional palaces! I’ve been to ChangDeokGung once and I thought it’s really really pretty. :D

  57. Eden Victoria Klayman

    So happy!!!! I luv you guise!!!!!
    Really cheered me up!!!

  58. REDEMPTION! with the Coffee prince curse lifted, maybe now the NU’EST curse can as well.

  59. The curse has finally been lifted. Huzzah!!! I’m glad you guys finally got to film there.
    Also, Martina doesn’t have a fat head. It’s only the size of a fist. Thank you for the awesome video.

  60. Applesauce 21

    This is so cuuuuuteeee!!!! Thank you! <3

  61. I’m SO proud of you guys. When I saw the title of today’s W.A.N.K. it was like a chorus of “Hallelujah” came on in the background. It brought tears to my eyes. Good job, guys… Good job. *Sniffle*

  62. thisisjustforfunval

    After all the cursed Coffee Prince trips I’m so glad it finally worked out and you got there! May be it wasn’t meant to be so that you would end up one day doing this awesome video with Kia. That’s my crazy view on life, with these rose colored optimistic views for most, not all, cursed things. Love seeing that you guys are getting show us outside of the cities more. It looks so pretty there at the Coffee Prince House. Plus fall leaves! The desert sucks! Our trees are still green, and they aren’t evergreens.

  63. I loved this video! It made me laugh so much! Your videos always put me in a great mood and I cant wait for your next one!

  64. I have never seen Coffee Prince, but I freaked out when you arrived because I remember the previous Coffee Prince WANKS




  65. So cool that you managed to break the curse!!! After this video I want to watch Coffee Prince all over again…only problem is that my dvd box is in Italy and I am in the UK!! :_:

  66. I feel like all them nasties are going to impress KIA (and by them I mean us, but it just seems cooler to say “them nasties”… um…yes) with all the retweets and likes and such… And then we’ll get to see WANKs all over Korea (not that I don’t love them as they are, but it will be even more exciting not knowing where the next one will be… Not that I know now, but like the Seoul-ish area is a pretty good bet… nevermind, moving on)! Yayyyyyy (to regular WANKs outside of Seoul)! But first to GD’s pension!!!

  67. Small Yeti

    Did you guys get lost en route because you loved the car so much you just wanted to drive it some more? Kia is so cool for doing this and should definitely lend you cars again. Also, when you were driving up the steep hill it reminded me of the start of Spirited Away when they are driving to their new house!

  68. best part of this video is the “no aye stop ea a;lkjea”’as ;je”

  69. Victor Ha

    LOL “dieded”. My favorite WANK is still Hipsters in the Woods, but congrats to your final redemption! My friends would be so jealous of you guys.

  70. YAY! Now I want to watch the Cursed Coffee prince video…The lost hipsters is hard to beat :)

  71. YOU SURVIVED!!! That’s great news! The view is very beautiful–I never realized Korea had this side of nature. I have something to look forward to when I visit Korea. :)

  72. Cyber_3

    Wow! This was great redemption and a fun video. I love how you guys can make even a coffee house (a very nice one, granted) seem so interesting and make me want to go there and I’ve never even seen Coffee Prince. Watching the street in fast motion while you drive is totally fun and gives a nice idea of what the landscape is like in S.Korea (very different from Canada). I would totally love to see more trips out on the road. Even the ones that don’t succeed make for great videos (kimchi making fail?), I just hope that you’ve broken your curse now and it all works out from here on in.

    Cyber_3 – liking the increase in funny voice changes lately and Simon killing people with his fork – great sfx and so HILARIOUS!!

    • Glad you liked it! We definitely have some road trips planned, and hope things will all work out :D

      • Cyber_3

        BTW, it’s not that I enjoy watching you fail (even if it is hilarious at times), it’s more that it’s so great how you two are able to make the best fun out of any situation. You’re very inspiring that way {HUGS!}
        I’ve always been that way too “we’re not lost kids – we’re EXPLORING!”


  74. WAY TO GO BATGIRL, HA YOU BEAT THE CURSE . LOL I love it, love the drama and its great to see the shop. but fun to watch how you tried so many times ( I was there with ya ) good job, whats our next drama location ?

  75. That yellow car is so pimpin’. Do you like, get it for always, as long as you feature it in a few videos? Or do you have to request it/they give it to you when a car is required for adventures?

    “You look so gigantically fat in that sweater.” “Really?” Ahh, true love. <3

  76. I really like the videos that are more not-down-town! I hope you get to make more of these “far away in pretty nature videos” ~~ (*^▽^*)

  77. Congratulations! Although “Hipsters in the Woods” is one of my favorite videos.

  78. LOVE Coffee Prince! SO glad you guys finally made it!! So worth it!!! So… did Martina get a cupcake or not?

  79. Omg that would be so cool! Please do a WANK on GD’s pension!! :D

  80. God bless KIA!!! you guise finally made it!
    I watched that drama because of your videos and I loved it! (probably because I LOVE coffee)

    Next stop: G-Dragon`s pension! FIGHTING!

  81. Yay! The curse has been broken! So happy you guys finally got to go to the Coffee Prince House after all of the trouble you went through the previous times you tried. That view was gorgeous, and I’d definitely love to go there if I ever fly out to Korea. Hoping for the best for your partnership with KIA, because videos like this are fun to watch, and I know you guys have fun making them too. :D

  82. Guuuuuise. You did it and are not killededed I am so proud. First for surviving the driving and next for actually getting there. I loved Coffee Prince ( my love for Gong Yoo and that cute fluffy dog is real yo). I was also happy that we finally figured out how you got lost last time. Mystery solved.

    EYK crew hwaiting !!!

  83. You guys are awesome. Thanks for the ride Kia!

  84. Lol Simon, Why is Martina driving? BE A MAN SIMON!!!

  85. After rejected by a manager and nearly ‘killeded’. They finally have it. Hi-five to you guys! *imagine im crying for you*

  86. “Beware Onew!” :D Chicken and Onew will always be the best combination!
    And the view behind you is soooo beautiful! I’m in loove <3

  87. First thought… Woww you’re going to drive in South-Korea with a new car that you borrowed from Kia?? After all the stories I heard about the driving style of koreans I would be afraid that I had to give Kia their car back with a few bumps and scratches that weren’t there before…Not so good if you’re aiming for a nice working relationship with them…

    It was nice to finally see the Coffee Prince shop and it seemed there were a lot op people there! Happy you got your redemption xD

    And I hope it works out with Kia because I’m looking forward to seeing GD’s pension ;)

    • To be honest, we’re getting comfortable with driving in Korea. Yes, people weave in and out of lanes and don’t signal, and we gotta be on the defensive, but most of the time traffic is going so slowly that we just stay in the middle lane and crawl all the way to and from where we need to go.

  88. I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO GO THERE TOO. I’M SO JEALOUS!! I’ve always dreamed that I could like buy that place but I guess it’s a coffee shop now. Sad. You guys are sooo AWESOME! Thank you for sharing your experiences! :)


  90. To the KIA Mobile! Ta na na na naaan~

    And yes! G-Dragon’s pension please! Who knows, maybe you guise can also see GD’s parents there! lol

  91. mihuru

    Whoa wank is early today!

    I was actually wondering just a few days ago if you would ever try to go to Coffee Prince House again and ooh la laa here it is: round 3! :D

    • You were probably wondering because we went last year around Halloween. It’s that time of year again. Well, not anymore, but it was recently Halloween. In FAAAACT: we tried going again on Halloween but the weather was too rainy.

      • Glad u guys push trough the weather and then the poor GPS reading abilities… seriously guys I’m never driving with u to place u’ve never been to jajaja

  92. hapagirl

    Holy shit SALVATION FROM THE ANGRY COFFEE PRINCE GODS!!! I said that in my booming Simon voice~
    The Lost Hipster video does hold a spot in my heart because that was in the beginning of when I was getting into you guys, first year nasty~ It’s kinda funny how in the end the only way to do anything Coffee Prince related is to just drive up with a car from Kia. Also to all the Nasties~ I said it on youtube, but wanking music is now to be wanking road trip or adventure music

  93. One of my favorite videos of yours is still “Hipsters lost in the Woods” oh so hilarious!

  94. Im really happy for u, that KIA is helping you out.. And again Coffee Prince Take 3 LETS GOOO :DD

  95. Yeah, GD’s Dolce Vita would be great!! Go there!!! :D

  96. Coffee Prince! :D
