WE ARE BUILDING A COFFEE SHOP!

April 24, 2014

Guise: this month has been the most exciting month of Eatyourkimchi Studio’s existence. We’re opening up a coffee shop, right here in Hongdae, right beside our studio. Come, grab a seat, and we’ll tell you everything we know and all the heart and the feels that went into the planning of this place.

We’ve been working on this for months now, discussing ideas, hunting locations, talking about shop names, the look and feel of the place, the menu…the everything! Many of you know how passionate we are about coffee (and how much we drink), and you’ve heard us talking about our dreams to open up our own shop in the future as well. But that idea was distant future for us. We thought that we’d do that when we’re older, in our late 50s, and not sprightly enough to make awkward jokes on the internet. It was a pipe dream, and so we’re totally amazed that this is happening decades before our plan.

We’re partnering up with Hyunwoo and the TalkToMeInKorean crew. We’re all youtubers, we’re all into promoting Korea, and we’re all into coffee shop culture. We’ve spoken a lot about how awesome it would be to open up a coffee shop that would incorporate good coffee, homemade healthy baked goods, and a great atmosphere for both visitors to Korea and Korean people.

On top of that, we like what the Talk To Me In Korean crew do. They’re good people. We’ve spoken with lots of other businesses in Korea, some multi-million dollar companies, and they’re bad, bad. Evil bad. We never get that feeling with Hyunwoo. Whenever we do anything together we feel nothing but “goddamn that guy is a good person.” We couldn’t be happier working together with him and his crew!

We also know that lots of people want to visit the Eatyourkimchi Nasty Studio, but it’s a really difficult and impractical location. There’s a gate at the third floor that we can’t hear the ringing to, because there’s no bell. There is an office below us that understandably doesn’t want people socializing during their work hours. And now the club owners in the basement put a gate at the first floor as well. It’s impossible for any of you Nasties to stop by as a result, and that sucks!

Having a coffee shop that’s close to the studio, then, is a perfect solution. We can meet up with people there! It’s not impossible to get to! Gandalf isn’t sitting at the stairs saying “UUUU SHALLL NOT PASSSSS” We’re thinking of doing lots of events in the coffee shop including maybe live chats!

So in order to get this dream going, we have an investor who’s funding the development of the coffee shop and who believes in Hyunwoo’s and our shared vision. Otherwise, again, this is something we would have had to wait decades for. He’s actually a good friend of Hyunwoo’s already, which makes us really happy, because it’s not a shady person trying to take advantage of us. It’s someone who likes what we do, and wants to help see where we can go with this next.

We’re thinking about what we can do with this coffee shop as well. We’d love to shoot videos there, would love to see you there in our videos, too. So, no, this doesn’t mean that we’re stopping Eatyourkimchi videos and focusing entirely on this. This isn’t a replacement of Eatyourkimchi; it’s just a new branch, one that we think goes well with those of you we’d love to be able to see but can’t see. We were flabbergasted at how supportive you all were when we had the Studio Pop Up Store event, so we think that you’d like to come to this place as well. Martina has been working on the menu for months now and she’ll even be in the kitchen making healthy homemade baked goods. You know you want to try her cookies, cupcakes, muffins, and loaves!

We do know, though, that our schedules are going to be a bit hectic now that we’re starting this new dream of ours, but we’re doing our best to film things in advance so that we can stay up to date with our videos as much as possible. You might remember how scattered things were when we were building the studio at the end of 2012, and how some videos just never got made because we were picking the tiling and the paint. We’re hoping that this won’t be the case this time, but if it does happen, we hope you’ll forgive us.

We are going to try to keep you updated on things as well, with videos of the studio development, construction, and whatnot. We’re still debating what name we should go for, how we should decorate it, and all that. We’ll let you know as things advance! We’re just happy to finally have found a place after, really, six months in the works. Woohoo!

Side note: Dongho, if you’re reading this (and I know you probably are) do you know how to either bake or to make coffee? If so, we’d love to talk. Just saying ;)

We’ve got some bloopers from the hunt as well. Check em out if you feel like a few extra lols:

You can also check out Talk To Me in Korean’s Announcement Video and read their blog post as well. Yay!

So, yeah! That’s it for now! Click on the subscribe button below so you can keep up to date with what’s happening. We’re also trying to think of a way to have something special on the menu for YouTube subscribers. Gotta figure out how to do that. Till then, make sure you click on this pretty button right here:

  2. It’d be so cool if you could name the snacks or drinks after songs or K-pop groups because it’d be funny to see people trying to order drinks. For ex. “I would like to order two U-Kiss’ and one T-ara.” It’d be weird and funny and would help with spreading Kpop around. xD

  3. WOW, next time we’re visiting my in-laws, most likely next year, we’ll definitely stop by! How exciting is that! We looove EYK, we love our coffee, and while Sydney does not have a particularly awesome internet connection (as you have experienced) it definitely has wicked coffee, so we are gonna be ready for some espresso deliciousness and yummy pastry. But most of all meeting other Nasties and you guys! The building looks awesome already, can’t wait to see it when it is done!

  4. this ONE video literally pushed my inspiration to go to korea to visit the EYK studio and now the coffee shop as well!!! =D Im so excited to meet both the EYK Crew and the TTMIK Crew and thank you both so much for the experiences and knowledge you both have shared! As a birthday gift to myself Ive taken the chance to ask for a week vacation so far in advanced and my manager knew of my great interests in korea and how I got so much more passionate about going because of EYK that I was already pre-approved! Its so exciting to think that I might be actually going to the EYK+TTMIK Coffee shop and visiting all those delicious FAPFAP locations in my week stay there ;D Ill be feeling all Nasty and Caffinated by the time I come back! =D Cant wait!

  8. OMG!!! I’m so excited for you guise!!! I, too, have a similar dream of opening my own cafe ^v^ only my concept was to have the cafe to function as an art gallery/live music place from art and music students in my area ^^ (ooh, now you’ll have extra space for your beautiful fan art stuff! Oh and maybe have like surprise gigs from the awesome kpop & indie music ppl that you interview!!! gah!!! the excitement is catching!!) and like you, its something that I had thought can only happen when much more I’m older, too… That’s why I am so stoked for your team, that you guise are able to do it earlier than you had thought!!! I know it will be a lot of hard work but it’s clearly seen from your videos that you all have the passion and have this wonderful vision for it ^=^ It’s so inspiring to see that you guise are doing what you can to go after your dreams!!! All the best to your team and I really hope that I can visit you cafe soon!!!

  10. Simon and Martina…. I am so incredibly happy for you guys. I’ve been watching your videos since 2008, and have seen you go from casual vloggers to full time vloggers, and now you guys are opening up your own business. I know it sounds kinda weird, but I feel like I’ve watched you guys grow up in the time that eatyourkimchi had grown. I hope that at some point I can come to Korea and tell you two how much your videos have meant to me these past years and finally get to hang out with you (cuz I feel like you would be super fun to be friends with). Congratulations, and I hope the coffee shop is a giant success.

  13. Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if you guys put up a pinboard or just used a wall to put up pictures of Engrish fans find? I always found the engrish challenges in you wanks funny, and it would be a perfect spot to put the daddy poem.

  14. They’ve put notes to Dongho at the bottom of several of their blog posts ever since it was announced he was leaving U-KISS. I think the joke is that that they’re giving him other career options — who better to have working at EYK than an ex-idol?

  15. WAAAAHHHH it’s Hyunwoo from TTMIK! I totally had no idea you guys were friends but I really should have expected it XD I love his website, It’s by far the best website to learn Korean off of.
    Anyway, congrats on the shop guys, can’t wait to hear more! Good luck with everything and if I ever have the pleasure of visiting Korea I will be sure to stop by :)

  21. OMG!! Congrats you guy!! I am so proud of you guys and look forward to the reveal of the coffee shop. I don’t have a name for it yet that I would like to add to the collection for choices to consider, but I do want to say that please, please, please!!! Keep the for My Daddy sign in some way in the shop. How about as a blurb on the menu somewhere on the front or back cover? Or on the wait staff aprons? I think it would be really, really cool! Also if the neighborhood allows, how about doing a unplugged small event were artist can come in and do their songs unplugged in a simple coffee shop setting. You guys could film it and if possible we would pay for DVD copies of the event?

    Just an idea to toss into the ring of many, but no matter what you guys do, keep it up and congrats again!!

    If you want to meld Talk To Me In Korean and Eat Your Kimchi, you should call the shop Kitty Me ( with a K left over). Even though I’m sure you will go with a Korean name, the two companies make the word ‘kitty’!

  32. Oh my goodness! I’m so happy for you guys! I hope you’re not too busy, though. I grew up with parents who owned a bakery, and since then I’ve worked in quite a few cafes and coffeeshops, so I know the amount of time and effort goes into a nice place. I look forward to seeing what you do!
    I’m not too far away, just over in Wonju (Gangwon-do), so I’ll be sure to stop by when I visit Seoul~

  34. SPAZZ!!!!!!!!!!!! You guys (EYK and TTMIK) are my life dream! not only surviving but thriving in Seoul, in Korea. Is the thing I want to do the most! I’ve spent a year here in Busan learning Korean and the lifestyle here and though I have to return to Canada to finish my University degree soon I really want to come back and make a home here :) (though preferably closer to Seoul) This is such a great thing for not only you but for HyunWoo and the TTMIK gang as well. I always felt like If I had spent my year abroad in Seoul instead of Busan I would have maybe come to actually know you guys outside of youtube and I hope that If I return to Korea maybe I can spend time at this cafe and finally meet everyone! This is a great accomplishment and I cannot wait to see everything! I wish you the best of luck and will be sending you good vibes from wherever I am, be it Busan or Canada. :)

    P.S. I think there should be like a Canadian themed treat… like maple cookies or something… that would be kick ass.
    P.P.S. I don’t quite know what to suggest for the name but i think it would be appropriate to reference how both TTMIK and EYK allow Korean lovers to be together. Because of you we can connect. We Are One… kkkk ( exo reference not intended :P )

  35. I’M SO EXCITED FOR YOU GUYS! You guys are the best and I’m so happy to hear people are living out their dreams. I love decorating stuff so I know how happy Martina must be :) My current life sucks, because, well, I’m letting it be this way. You guys are good role models. I’ve been watching your stuff since 2011 and even though I’m not as interested in K-Pop as I used to be when I started watching you guys (Pokemon ruined my life) I always look forward to your videos and in a way see you guys as the older siblings I never had. You guys give me hope. I really am truly happy for you and the people over at Talk to Me in Korean. Good luck :) (sending positive vibes)

  49. When I read this I thought it was a joke. You know, Simon and Martina like to joke around a lot. And then I realized they were serious and I literally jumped for joy!! This is a fantastic idea and I wish Simon and Martina, the EYK crew, and the TalkToMeInKorean crew the best of luck! I might be a poor college student, but by the time I get there I hope I hope the business is still flourishing (which will be a long long long time from now) Congratulations and Good Luck!!

    • I walked around virtually in daum maps, but couldn’t find it close to the EYK studio. By the way, their photos are very recent (April 2014), so you can already see the new building next to the EYK studio. Finally, I noticed the big “OfficeCorea” sign across the street in the video… from there I simply searched for 오피스코리아… Luckily there is only one branch in Hongdae
      By the way… I think you should keep the “like my daddy” sign… It’s funny

  59. My suggestion for the shop name: ‘Drink in Korea’
    Taking inspiration from the imperatives ‘Talk To Me In Korean’ and ‘Eat Your Kimchi.’ It’s also puuny because when people are like ‘Where can you get a drink in korea?’ people can respond like ‘Oh, it’s in Hongdae. I love that place! You want to go?’ And it’s a place where people can sit back and literally drink Korean coffee and figuratively ‘drink in’ the essence and feeling of Korea.

    • Announcing: S&M Entertainment, creator of the immensely popular groups EYK Crew and F-Art, as well as the talented solo artist Aegyozilla. There’s no way anyone could misinterpret the company name as standing for anything other than Simon and Martina (or Spudgy and Meemers), right? Right?

I can’t wait to see what Martina designs for the uniform. You could also not require uniforms- instead, have cosplay or hilarious dollar store explosions *coughf(x)cough* or, or… XD Anyhow, congratulations! I cannot wait until it opens!

  70. Hi, Simon and Martina! I’ve never posted anything on your site before, but after seeing this post, I thought it was the perfect time to start! You started out as small-time Youtubers uploading videos on your experiences in Korea, videos that are now enjoyed by so many people around the world, whether for their fascinating subjects or your pure silliness. You are selling your own EYK products, which have received so much love for their quirky humor. And now you are building a coffee shop, one imbued with your warm, fun personalities and one that connects Korean learners and Koreans and everyone in between through delicious food, coffee, and a bright, lively atmosphere. You are so fortunate to have found such a gorgeous location, and I am sure the shop will meet and even surpass all your hopes for it. In the future, I hope to visit Korea, and your coffee shop will definitely be a place I am ecstatic to visit. Simply put, I am so very very happy for you, and will keep on wishing for your good fortune and success.

  71. Shouldn’t have read/watched this at 4am – now I’m too hyped to sleep! So excited for you guise! Maybe you could call it “Speaking of Kimchi…” to incorporate both TTMIK and EYK, together with the whole concept of interaction (things to do with korea and korean language exchange) within the coffee shop!
    Plus the sound of it kinda suggests that there’s more to it… Right guise? Right? Ok maybe not such a good idea after all hahaha.
    Can’t wait for your videos on this awesome journey! :D

  80. SO FLIPPEN EXCITED! Have you guise considered doing another fundraiser online, I know a lot of nasties (including me) would love to donate to this project. We all support you guise and love you dearly! Also, we could all give suggestions for the name ;) If I lived in Korea right now, i’d totally go help you with construction!

    Okay enough rambling, i’m just really excited.

  82. Aw man, another reason I need to hurry up and find a way to get my butt to Korea. XD I’m so excited for you guys and I know the coffee shop is going to be a huuuuge success. It’s great that you’re partnering up with TTMIK as they seem like an awesome crew and what they do to help people learn Korean without a huge expense is just amazing. Good luck and as a side note, I’m pretty sure no one would mind if Soozee and Leigh took over filming videos for a while. Just in case you guys get too busy with your designing and color swatches. ;)

Hope you’ll have some tea or non-coffee type beverages. My stomach is a gruel beast and won’t allow me to drink coffee any longer. :(

    You really made a dream of mine come true with this idea. Also that you are focussing on so many aspects like the coziness and the open kitchen and all of that makes me really happy and it shows how close we are as a NASTY-family (oooh you so nastyyy :D ) I’m thinking of going to Soul sometime in the next years and my dream is to meet you on the streets and have a chat and if there’s time invite you for a coffee and have a chat. And if you open a coffee shop it would be even cooler! :)

  96. what would be cool to see is a segment where you can interview people in the shop about music videos. or general questions. Have a black board/wall with a question of the week and chalk so visitors can comment their responses!

  97. Wow! Congratulation!! You guys are so productive and smart. I am extremely happy for you guys. I often wondered what you guys would do next. You’ve mention opening a Japanese version of your business before, but that would be really hard to split yourself between two countries at once. Leaving to start over in Japan would be too much. I think this was a really good idea to supplement your income and give the users a way to meet you guys and hang out with each other.
    One question: Why are you guys getting a huge house instead of a small shop to start off?

    Name suggestion: “Eat. Talk. Coffee.” or just “Eat Talk Coffee”. It has both youtubers companies in the name. I also like what hironyx suggested.

  98. OMG GUYS!! I’m so excited 4u!!! I know how much ur into health stuff so I know it will be great!! if I can throw in an idea, for that coffee shop I get a warm/cozy feel. With hints of cuteness thrown in somewhere. lol, that’s how I see it. ANYWAYS, will u be having other drinks besides coffee since I don’t drink much coffee? Juices and teas are great haha. when I get to korea i’ll deff go there!

  99. Guys. I totally just spilled tears for you guys! This is frickin amazing, I wish you guys all the best for succeeding and when I come to Seoul in about 2years (Iol) i’m gonna be there all the time supporting you guys!

    3 years ago
  100. First off let me just say how happy I am for you guys. It’s really great to see this finally happening and so much sooner than expected! I also feel that your collaboration with TTMIK will only enhance the overall experience and success of the shop. That being said, I do have a couple of suggestions for the place (assuming you haven’t already considered these things yourselves).
    – I feel that the naming of the shop is extremely crucial, since you not only want to pay tribute to both fandoms but also appeal to the general Korean public who are not familiar with either. I’d stay away from using the terms “nasty” or “kimchi” since they don’t really associate well with a coffee shop. However I do think that there is a way to combine your names and still appeal to the Korean public. At it’s very core, a coffee shop is a place where you go to drink coffee and talk to people. It shouldn’t be too difficult to incorporate “Talk” and “Eat” into the name somehow. The first thing that came to me was “Talk to Me and Eat your Pastry”. I know this is kind of a long title and doesn’t abbreviate well, but I’m sure you can come up with something more creative along those lines.
    – Next I’d like to cover the different aspects of the shop. I already know you were planning to have an “open kitchen” and a classroom set aside for Korean lessons, but I thought you could also have a permanent kiosk to sell EYK merchandise. It would be like a mini offline shop within the coffee shop. I’m sure there are plenty of coffee shops out there that sell T-shirts and souvenirs, so why not do the same. Provided there is enough space you could even store the merchandise there. So not only do you get to hang out, learn Korean, eat lots of yummy treats, but you can take a souvenir home with you as well.
    – I also know how much you guys love coffee, tea, and eating healthy. I think coming up with healthy alternative recipes for cookies and cupcakes is a fantastic idea and would be great for people with allergies such as Gluten for example. I had an idea though for the menu that might be cool. I thought maybe you could have like a “daily special” list that consists of coffee you received from around the world from fans. I realize that you probably don’t get enough to share with all of your guests and you might think of it as a gift that you should enjoy yourselves, but I’m just planting the idea in your heads in case you can work something out along those lines. The same idea could be applied to all of the candy you guys receive. Since you are trying to eat better these days, perhaps you can offer a variety bulk candy area so that it doesn’t all go to waste.
    – There was another idea floating around about holding interviews or meetings with Korean musicians or idols, but I think this might be overwhelming for the shop considering the sea of, possibly sasaeng, fans that would try to cram themselves inside. On a similar note though, it may be possible to hold a weekly or monthly k-indie concert where you invite one band to come play a few numbers for an evening. Imagine sitting on the second floor balcony drinking your coffee while listening to a Korean indie band performing live music out on the lawn. Again, I’m not sure how much space you have available, but it shouldn’t be too difficult to set up. All you need is a few risers and some extension cords. I know street artists set up in parks all the time, so why not in your garden?
    I know this has been a long post, and there are even more things coming to mind as I type this. For now I’ll leave it here and hopefully you guys will notice this post. I’d be more than happy to discuss my ideas further with you if you think any of them are practical. I wish all of you the best of luck with this endeavour and can’t wait to visit it someday in the future! ^_^

    • Haha, well I’m glad we are all on the same page. I’m actually an architecture student, so projects like this involving renovation, interior design, and planning building usage are all right up my alley. You’ll also be happy to know that I’m in charge of planning the Chicago stop of the US Nasty Tour in the Green Region, so you can expect similar planning ideas for that as well. I’ve got a full three day itinerary in the works.
      -I was actually on my way out to class the other day and had to cut my post “short”, so I’ll finish posting the rest of my ideas now. I had some ideas as for as décor and interior design. From the video, It seemed like you had several different sized rooms on both floors, so I was thinking you could possibly have a different theme in each room. One room could be for couples and have a sort of romantic theme, another could be a quiet study area for reading or doing homework, etc., and a third area could be for more lively guests. I’d say keep the quiet room on the second floor away from the noise, while the main floor would be the bustling are filled with energy. I also thought that it wouldn’t be too hard to set up a room with a projector screen that could show Korean dramas on a specific schedule, or even just once a week is K-drama night. Watching the dramas would also be a good learning tool for anyone taking classes with TTMIK.
      – I also know that you were somewhat running out of room in the studio for posting fan art, so you could use some of it to decorate the shop. Again, I’m sure you don’t want anything being ruined or stolen, so you could have it posted behind the counter in the kitchen or in some other “employee only” area that is still visible to guests. Possibly even purchase one of those glass display cases that you can lock, and present it that way.
      – The last thing I’ll add is a concern about the queue for coffee. From the looks of it, there is only one way into the house which is straight through the front garden area. Assuming you guy get really busy (which I’m sure you will), then you’ll have a line running out of the house and cutting the garden area in half. Occupant circulation is a huge consideration when designing a public place as well as having an evacuation route in case of a fire or other disaster. That being said, I was wondering if you were able to make a sort of side entrance in an alley or around back for the line to form. Even if you have to make a new entry on the side of the garden/building with a few stairs or something, so that the main queue doesn’t cut through the front garden, but instead passes along the side of the house. This would be especially important if you had some event like a concert on the lawn, since the audience would be cut in half by the line. Just something to keep in mind.
      I really wish I was able to fly out there and help you guys renovate. I’m currently done with school and unemployed, and I do have a large sum of money saved for traveling. If you are open to the idea, I’d totally be down to “vacation” to Korea for a couple of months and work on the shop with you. I’ve got lots of experience with remodeling, installing flooring and wall treatments, and using a plethora of tools. Of course, some sort of reimbursement on my behalf would be greatly appreciated. I’d love to be able to put this project in my portfolio to show to future employers. It is my dream to work as an architect in either Japan or Korea, and this kind of experience would be invaluable to acquiring such a position. I’m being 100% serious in my offer to come help renovate the shop, so let me know if you think its a possibility even if you just need an extra set of hands. If not then I’ll be sure to visit sometime in the near future to see how it all turned out.

      • Love your ideas!! Especially agree with you about how the name should incorporate both groups but still appeal to the public. I dont know much about architecture but I love interior designig and decorating. Just throwing out two ideas I had while I was watching this. The themed room idea is pretty cool but I would probably knock down some walls in the first floor. There are two bright rooms with huge windows but the back of the house seems pretty dark, I would at least knock down those back room walls so there will be at least one big open area. Maybe you can still keep 1-2 rooms downstairs but even with a huge open space floor plan you can divide the room creatively with artsy/glass panels and whatnot. The front door seems a bit small and uncoffee-shop like, maybe you guys can knock down that daddy wall and get some beautiful French doors :P then again I dunno what you guys budget is so just tossing some ideas in the hat!

      • Hello, this is the official US Nasties page popping in. We just want to remind everyone that right now, becoming a registered organization with the government is our primary focus, so we have no official plans for the tour in the works until that is a reality.

  148. *raises hand* I know you have the ttmik team, who are all multilingual, but if you are interested I and other nasties could translate menus into our second languages to expand, not only to English speakers, but to many foreign visitors! Well, you might be wondering how they would order, we could help out with English pronunciation or Korean pronunciation on the back with a “How do you say” or “Como se dice” (Spanish) section on the back. I know a good amount of Spanish to translate into English, but I definitely know enough to make a coherent menu. ^^ (No preterite on menus! ;D)
    But seriously, if this is something you are interested in, myself and other nasties would love to help y’all out (for free! ^^). Just say the word!

  152. Maybe keep the name something simple, relevant, and easy to remember like “Real Coffee” or “Talkin’ about real coffee” or “Keeping it real” or “True Taste”.

    You could also go off on a spin about the internet with something like “Virtual Reality” or “2D IRL” or “Coffee matters” (see the pun on matters? Matter = physical substance and matter = important). I’ve used up my creative juices for now.. the rest will be gibberish so please think of it. :D

  153. OHHHHGIRL. I am all about this shit. I didn’t even drink much coffee until moving to Korea, and in the process of purchasing maple iced cappuccinos in order to sit in such cool shops, I started getting itchy whenever I didn’t have caffeine. (major fist-shaking).

    The only way I didn’t turn into an icicle on the pop-up studio shop that day was because I was there at noon, so Martina gave us a real-life cheat code through the (spoiler), but I didn’t know that the (spoiler) had (spoilerbooze), so I was also slightly buzzed, which was a slight plus. Will this shop have coffee cocktails? I would like my coffee with a shot of whiskey, nothing special :)

    So, basically, how many addictions you gonna fuel, foolz? You got my coffee, shops, eyk, korean language classes, and….

  158. YES, YES, YES, YES, YES!! A THOUSAND TIMES YES!!!
    This is great news! This is beyond awesome! Imagine the possibilities! Whoaaah! I am not easily excitable but this is glorious!!

    I am glad you are doing it in partnership with TTMIK. I use their
    resources quite often and recommend the website to anyone learning
    Korean. If it is well known that language fluency improves in direct
    relation to the amount of alcohol consumed, then I think that it is also true
    that it is over a good cup of coffee that true study progress is made. I
    owe whatever fluency in Korean I possess to (TTMIK *wink wink*, and) many many many
    cups of coffee and cozy “coffices” around town.

    Grandma always says that where there is good food (and I may add, coffee) there is joy (grandpa might have added wine to the list).

    Plus, coffee dates with Korean artists can actually be a great interview concept. A coffee date feels more intimate and casual, and if I am watching it with my own coffee mug in hand, it will feel almost as if I am taking part in it… I won’t share the same time and space but I share two senses: palate and smell. Please list what each guest consumed, I want to know whether my favourite idols share my love for a good espresso.

    Best of luck!
    I will visit you later this year!

    3 years ago
  171. Ermahgerd you guys! I am so excited for you! =D

    I can just imagine all the coffee names being strange abbreviations hahaha. “Oh, hello I would like to order a ‘Beautiful Origins Original Black’ … ‘WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU AREN’T SERVING BOOBS RIGHT NOW?’
    Maybe even in combination with Kpop Artists names, Rather than having the Starbucks sizes with the venti and grande and whatever you can make a large one a Hyunas and then you’d order a ‘HYUNAS BOOB’.
    No? Going too far? XD

    Also, on the menu you should definitely add TAEMANS DORITO’S (served with Soy)

    Since you are working with Talk To Me In Korean, I totally expect little cheat sheets at the counter or written on the tables with English-Korean translations on how to order things xD

    Also, it might be a cool idea to put chalkboard paint somewhere to like people who come there can leave a message and then you can read them later and you can see how awesome you guys are but then the wall will probably be full after a week so maybe that’s not such a good idea o.o

    And and and if you get stuck on what to put on the menu or want to involve us Nasties more maybe you can put like a poll on the blog and the recipes and people can try them out at home and then vote for what they think tastes the most delicious.

    And and and I am so sad I don’t get to go to Korea any time soon =(

I should’ve learned by now only to expect the unexpected from you two. Congratu-freaking-lations! That place really is gorgeous btw. I guess my prediction of foreigners helping make Seoul a premier culinary hot spot is coming true, and it’s because of Simon and Martina, of all people. Who would’ve thought? Maybe you can be the ones who finally rid the world of the dreaded Korean baguette. :)

  182. I have one really important really selfish question: WILL THERE BE TEA? :))) Like, good, loose leaf tea? I know you looove your coffee but I sadly don’t (sorry?) and I always get enraged when coffee shops sell the most amazing coffee creations and then only have cheap pre-bagged tea, or a dust that pretends to be tea. Don’t do that, pretty please? :)

    • I’d rather have tea than coffee.

    • I second this. I’m not a fan of coffee and never will be. I lived in Korea for 10 months AND STILL never drink coffee. That’s one of the reasons why I love The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf so much because their tea menu is HUGE! Which is nice for us non-coffee drinkers. So tea menu?

      3 years ago
      • Also the tea culture is especially big in Asia so having a tea menu will suit some Koreans’ tastes if they prefer a more traditional drink than modern

        • Collect pictures and show examples of makeovers, Koreans may not be as used to it hence the initial apprehension. A nice rooftop has so much potential. My grandparents’ house has a rooftop covered in vineyards, it’s a great place in any season (except when grapes fall on you and stain your clothes; pick a different plant).

  246. Oh my god, I’m so happy for you ! You’re are really a model to me in time like that. Believing in your dreams, and making them come true, step by step, is something I really want to do, but sometimes I’m loosing courage. But watching your videos, seeing how happy you are and how you’re doing all this so nicely, it makes me want to complete my dreams too, believe in them.
    Thank you so much and congratulation again ! Be sure I will come to your coffee when I will come to Korea ! :D

  249. Yay! Congrats guys! And thanks a lot I was about to go to sleep when I see on twitter your post and I got back on my laptop to see this.
    As of right now, no plans to go to South Korea but when it is in the cards I am so there! It’s absolutely adorable looking place and it’d be awesome to have Nasties and TTMIK fans be able to have a place where they can do meet ups.I can’t wait to see how this progresses and hope that we’ll have a video when it’s all finished.
    I do wonder if after this Martina will want to do a cookbook after this and also loving that t-shirt at the end.

  250. Guys, you are living the dream. :) Congratulation, I hope everything will go well. I’m glad you could find good people to work with, that’s a really important thing when you want to open a business… this is a nasty word, but now nasty meaning bad and not meaning us, awesome Nasties. xD
    Anyway I’m looking forward to see how things develop in front of my computer screen and I hope one day I can visit you there… I will try to squeeze you guys in my hectic schedule after hunting down idols to meet, if I ever go to Korea. xD haha kidding i’m not gonna go after idols all day… or am I? xD I guess I will go sight seeing too. :D

  252. Gaiz, this is actually making me a bit emotional. I’M SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!! I’ve seen you guys grow so much over the past few years (buying new houses, gettting the studio, getting tattoos, designing more merchandise, creating the “EYK Crew”, etc.) and it makes me so overjoyed that you guys are fulfilling another one of your dreams. Seriously feel like a proud mother (although Im 16….)

  253. HOLY FLIPFRICKIN FUCK, THAT’S AWESOME. Seriously, congrats on fulfilling this dream of yours! I’m going to Korea in June/July, hopefully I’ll see you there! Oh, and name suggestion: Drink Your Coffee. It has a nice abbreviation, too, with no dirty connotation at all: DYC.
