Yay! This was a really fun TL;DR to do. We didn’t have to do any research for this one! We just joke around with each other and answer some questions at the same time. We don’t have to put up any disclaimers and worry about offending anyone! Woohoo!

Basically, we saw this random TL;DR question pop up for us to do the Couple 123 tag. I at first thought it was going to be a makeup challenge or something like that, so why would we do that for a TL;DR? But I looked into it and saw that it was just a list of questions we have to answer and guess what the other person is going to answer as well. Kind of like the Newlywed Game, I think? I’ve never seen the Newlywed Game myself. I only saw this gem online once:

Oh man that still makes me laugh.

Anyhow, yes, I’m sure we make some of you nauseated. The two of us are very much in sync with each other a lot of the time. We think the same things. We’ll hear a sound and be reminded of the same memory. We understand each other quite thoroughly. Probably because we’re with each other all the freaking time. We live together and we work together. We go out with friends together and we go shopping together. We’re barely ever apart, except for when we have to multitask, and whenever that happens we look at each other with panic in our eyes and shout “LONELY!” Christmas Shopping is the worst, because we have to surprise each other, but that means being separated while we shop, and it sucks!

Side note: I never understand why some of our friends on Kakaotalk will put us in a group chat, and send a message to both me and Martina to ask what our plans are. WHAT THE HELL?! Seriously: we’re no more than 10 meters apart from each other barely ever. If you ask one person the other person will give the same answer. DAMMIT BRENDON I’M TALKING ABOUT YOU CUT THAT OUT ALREADY.

Though we understand each other very well, and pretty much know each others answers, I think it’s clear that I know Martina better than she knows me. AMIRITE OR AMIRITE? I sometimes even know her better than she knows herself. We once played a round of Categories. Categories is when you name a category and each person has to give an answer, without repeating the previous person’s answer. So, you can do a Categories round on chocolate bars, for example, and shout “Twix!” “Three Musketeers,” etc. The point of the story is that we once played a round of Categories in which Martina picked the category: “things Martina likes.” And you know what? I WON. Mr. Thoughtful, right here! BECAUSE I NAUGHTY NAUGHTY! HAY! I’m Mr. Thoughtful! I’m the one that noticed the little patter of her “mmhmmhs” before she starts a thought as well. She was a bit self-conscious about it at first, but now she’s ok with it :D

Another thing that we wanted to talk about: I’m sure the first category stumped a lot of people, because everyone surely shouted out “Oh I know Martina’s gonna say T.O.P.” for the which celebrity would you marry. But it wasn’t! Martina here: if you couldn’t tell, I really like Dothraki Man Warrior kind of men. Not someone super buff like The Rock, but someone that looks…like a warrior dude? Not saying that TOP doesn’t look like a dude, in fact, he’s the first Korean kpop related guy that I had ever seen that looked unquestionably manly. I mistook so many kpop idols for women when I first go into kpop, but NOT TOP! His deep voice and music persona is my style, which is why Bang Yong Guk gets onto that list as well. GD, I love your music and fashion, but I couldn’t marry someone I might crush to death while making out. Hahaha *sigh* I’m a tall, curvy, athletic girl, and I need someone to match that power! A lot of kpop stars are very frail and although I can acknowledge how pretty they are, they really aren’t my style.

But when it comes to personality and looks, Johnny Depp’s a cool dude. He makes awesome movies and stays the hell out of the craziness of Hollywood. He lives in France, doesn’t he? We were under the impression that he’s so against the Hollywood lifestyle that he put an ocean between him and Hollywood. Jennifer Lawrence kinda feels like the younger female version of Johnny Depp, in that she’s an ultra mega star but isn’t consumed by it the way others are. Hollywood gives us the jibblies. Some bad jujus going on there. Buggh. So I think we just picked the least Hollywood-ish movie stars we could think of, rather than the hottest people we can think of.

Why? Because hotness totally fades. Everyone grows old and wrinkly and fat and grey. And once hotness fades, what’s left? Your personality, that’s what, and if you’ve been too consumed with celebrity lifestyle, I’d be concerned about how you’ll fare once people stop paying attention to you. Who can you be happy and old with? Who could you live happily under a bridge with if you had no money? You know, we’re kinda happy at the thought of growing old together. Seeing older couples in their 80s makes us well up with tears. We want to waddle together at an extremely slow pace. We want to watch each other change. We want to build those memories. We want…to stop being so sappy now.

One last thing, though: I didn’t get a chance to explain how Vanilla Sky shaped my perception of myself, because I realize it can sound like I lived the life of a billionaire playboy, which was really quite not the case. So here it is: Tom Cruise’s character was hideously deformed, and he had terrible self-esteem issues. A stunning whimsical and artistic girl falls in love with him anyways, for his personality rather than for his looks. Then she peels off pieces of his mask and finds a beautiful face underneath. The rest of the details of the movie didn’t really matter to me. It was that story that hit me the hardest when I saw it. And I found that in Martina. And without getting too emotional, that’s that.

Anyhow, if you had fun with this TL;DR (and we hope you did) subscribe for more TL;DRs, where people will hopefully have easy questions for us to answer! Maybe a short lightning round TL;DR, where we talk about our favourite Animes and books and Prime Numbers and stuff like that :D

  3. Lol, Simon doing all the cleaning :p I must admit I’m a bit of a Martina. I don’t see a point in making the bed or hand drying things and I don’t usually fold my clothes <.<

  4. that’s it, i’m making myself a t-shirt that says “he’s my simon” and tell my future boyfriend to wear a shirt that says “she’s my martina”, and it’ll be lovely, and we will live happily ever after as nasties together

  5. You guise should look up the skit of a British comedian called Jon Richardson and his theory about how every relationship should consist of a putter (Simon) and a leaver (Martina) xD You will relate!

    • We tried finding that bit but couldn’t find it online. We found a different one in which he talked about being OCD in college, and it was hilarious :D

      • Oh that one is great too! It’s a shame they took down the theory one…I will post it here if someone puts it back up :D

  6. Okay. I dont know about anyone else but when I watch this it plays the sound in crazy super slow motion. So you both have like crazy deep man voices. I cant undestand what you are saying but it is extremelly funny! Almost like the old Godzilla movies where the track is super far behind but in slow motion haha

  7. I’m so on Martina’s side. I find laundry folding to be optional and my pajamas literally never get folded. lol

  9. Oh my gosh!! That was really funny. I don’t think this game would be as fun unless you had an audience of some sort.

  10. Does Simon have mild OCD actually? Because I can totally relate to the frustration of Martina’s non-pajama-folding habits and *cue nerdy voice* “household responsibilities”. OCD4LYF! (not by choice xD)

  11. Love this TL;DR! So funny. And guise you’re so adorable! It’s amazing how well you know each other! wanna find my own Simon! ^^ well, hopefully someday!

  12. Thank you so much for posting a fun video like this. I’ve been feeling really %@#$@ because of finals, but seeing you guys have fun and laugh with each other made me feel so much better.
    Also, Martina, I fold my pajamas. Just saying…

  15. “I couldn’t marry someone I might crush to death while making out. Hahaha *sigh* I’m a tall, curvy, athletic girl, and I need someone to match that power!”

    DITTO! This thought occurs to me all the time with idols. I look a Jaejoong sometimes and thing I would break all his bones if my curviness even hugged him. Probably why I tend to generally like the least frail looking member of a group, not always but usually. But when it comes to it though, I’d marry Karl Urban. He’s so manly and many times scruffy.

  17. I have finals tomorrow and I’m a big sicky baby right now on top of that. This video is wonderful and made me feel less poopy, so thank you. Also I agree that folding clothes is stupid

  26. People make the bed? Man… I still haven’t found a reason for people to make the bed yet…
    You remind me of my bf Simon. He sees no reason to wear pajamas and usually just wears his underwear to sleep although after his trip back to China in May, he’s been wearing a wifebeater to sleep now (his relatives told him to wear one. I think it was because they don’t want to see him walk around the house without a shirt on).

  27. 10:44-10:46 – “sigh.”

  29. Oooh, if you watch all versions of Pride and Prejudice did you ever hear about The Lizzie Bennet Diaries? It was a retelling on youtube as a series of “vlogs” following modern day Lizzie a graduate student and really pretty fun!

    • I loved LBD. It was crazy awesome. Are you watching Emma Approved?

      2 years ago
      • Fallen a bit behind but I have a sewing project I need to work on this weekend so I plan on using that time to catch up! Not as in love with it but that has to do with the characters more than anything else, IIRC Emma was originally written (by Jane Austen) as a much less sympathic character so I guess that means Bernie Stu/Hank Green nailed that part! XD

        2 years ago
        • I completely agree. Emma has always been my least favorite character, and she is definitely difficult to like in EA as well.

  33. Oh god, I love how you are both trying to convince us you each do a lot of house work xD I feel like I’m watching an argument between my parents and I’m like “well Martina makes a good point, cleaning that sucks! But Simon does laundry and dishes! Those are annoying” nooooooo cannot pick a side! cannot. compute.

    • I totally always read the blog posts first too ^^ And you two are too adorable for words! You are such a wonderful example of how wonderful marriage can be.

      Also, Martina, as always you have such an adorable outfit on. Um…would it be too much to ask if you sometimes mentioned where you got your clothes…I kind of am seriously in love with that cherry cardigan!

    • I usually read the blog post at the same time, but recently, my messed up sleep schedule has put my ADD into overdrive, so I can only focus on one thing at a time. So I read the blog post first (in fact, I have read the blog post but thus far haven’t actually watched the video). I especially find it helpful with KMM because sometimes in the video you don’t really explain your reasoning for saying some things as well as you do in the blog post, so the blog puts things into prospective for me.

      2 years ago
    • I always read the blog posts first! My lame internet speed and desire for “HD” quality vids means I’m usually waiting for the video to load by reading the post.

      I’m pretty sure you all have been spoiled by the internet in South Korea.

      2 years ago
      • Holy smokes! That’s right! We keep on forgetting how fast internet is here. Whenever we travel somewhere and we try to use the internet we look at our phones and think “is Twitter down? Is Instagram broken? Did my site crash?” We’re SO SPOILED.

        2 years ago
        • I remember in one of your old vids you talked about using Facetime on a bus using a portable hotspot that costs only $10 bucks a month.

          I was like “WHAAAAT?! You can do that?! for only $10 bucks a month? Not Fair!” and stomped my feet like a tiny jealous child.

          The internet isn’t quite Facetime friendly in my house, let alone in a bus.

        • 144p? That’s horrifying! Sometimes mine defaults to that too. It’s like a postage stamp size video.

        • You weren’t kidding about going to Korea for the Internet… When I get Photoshop again, I have to take a screenshot and make a corny visit Korea ad for it.

          BTW: Do either of you play Zelda games? The new 3DS one, A Link Between Worlds, was absolutely excellent! I had a lot of fond memories of a Link to the Past and many of those cute and squishy feelings came back.

          BTWW: I made mixed veggie and kimchi Jeon based on your recipe. It was totally nom-tastic! My brother ate it with Ranch. :P

  39. “Jennifer Lawrence, I will cut you.” – Martina Stawski.
    “Well because she’s the most like you. Because If I couldn’t marry you, I’d want to marry someone that’s as Martina-ish as possible and Jennifer Lawrence just seems to have that very bizarre-not-know-how-to-behave-in-public-kind-of…” – Simon Stawski
