WANK – Date Night at the Movies!

Ok, so this video is a bit more of our older style kind of videos, back when we first came to Korea and were ultra informative about how to do stuff. This video kinda feels that way, and it makes us feel a bit icky, because now we don’t talk that much about useful information. Most of the time we just blarrgglllbargl in front of the camera, and occasionally say something helpful. Thanks, by the way, for tolerating all of our blarrgglllbargling!

So, for this week’s video, we were going on date night, and we thought that we’d have a two-for-one kinda deal. Why not go to the movies like we planned, but also show you what it’s like? Sounds alright to me! Our camera sucked, though, and couldn’t focus worth a damn, but we brought a mic at least! We were kinda worried about bringing our actual gear with us, because we didn’t want to seem like Movie Pirates. How would we explain ourselves? I don’t know enough Korean to say “I’m not pirating your movies, I’m just filming inside the theatre to show people outside of Korea what movie theatres are like” To which they’d say “YEAH RIGHT BUDDY I’M CALLING THE COPS ON YOU GUISE.”

Ahem. More stuff about the theatres: we came to this one at a bad time. They’re doing reconstruction at this theatre (just our luck!) and some select theatres are totally badass, in that they have actual couches you can sit in, so that it looks like a giant living room with enough seating for, say, 40 people or so. And they also have special theatres that have proper meals cooked for you and you can watch a movie while eating with a fork and knife. We didn’t go to that, though. Next time, maybe?

Oh! Another things that’s interesting about watching movies in Korea: they’re subtitled in Korean (if you’re watching non-Korean movies, that is), but sometimes those movies speak in languages other than Korean for short scenes…and there aren’t English subtitles at those parts. So…unless you can read Korean quickly enough, you’re pretty much screwed. There should be a website called CanIwatchthismovieinanothercountry.com in which they tell you if you’re gonna be confused at some scenes or not.

In a somewhat related note: Holy Smokes! Catching Fire is AWESOME! We read the books. We saw the first movie. We were happy with the first movie, but the second movie is a lot better than the first, in our opinions. And there are even some parts in the movie that are better than the book, acted out better than how the book described them. Holy crap guise. We knew exactly what was going to happen and we still got emotional watching the movie. WATCH IT ITS SO GOOD.

So…yeah! That’s it for our little video! We’ve got some extra scenes from the night of you want em, including the dangerous accidents that can occur from bringing your own ranch:

On that note, subscribe so you can watch more of our WANKs, which are pretty much our date nights anyways, so watch us go out on dates and talk to you guise on camera!

  1. Ahh~ I know! I cried so much during the movie! I looked like a train wreck once I got out of the theater haha! Ok, I have a question completely un-related to this in anyway whatsoever, but I was wondering how you guise edit your photos that you put up on Instagram, they always look so cute!!

  3. Wow, the cinema is really expensive over there. Here, it’s about seven, eight euros, which is aprox. 10 USD. We get to choose our seats, they are comfy and the rooms are nice and really clean. Is the cinema that expensive in other countries? We used to have cinema for 4 euros some years ago, if no less and people keep complaining over here. I feel like I’m living in a cinema heaven now.

  5. I thought the filming was perfectly fine. Under the circumstances, you can’t expect perfection and hey, at least there was no fly ;). Very cute video. How DID you manage to convince that you were not pirates, or did they not care?

  10. That cinema looks amazing. I haven’t been out to see a movie in about 5 years, if I could go someplace that great I might actually be inclined to make the effort.

  11. Ooooooh I’m SO JEALOUS of you guise watching “Catching Fire”!!!!! Ooooooh the feels!!!!!! T.T
    And I agree with Martina, Jennifer Lawrence is a brilliant young actress!! She’s so good and so down to earth.

  12. I got a phone call while I was watching the video which led me to wonder if it happens often in Korean theatres that someone’s phone is ringing during a movie? I totally hate it and always mute my phone when I’m in a theatre.

  13. Regular movie theaters in Korea sound like the equivalent to the high-end Muvico theaters here in the U.S. They have the choose-your-own-seat, bigger variety of foods, if your 21+ you can sit in the VIP balcony, order dinner, and have drinks! They even have the 4D-Box. There’s only like 10 in the country & one’s by my house! Mwahahaha!! :ahem: Catching Fire was amazing. Jennifer Lawrence is amazing! blarbllghgbhg!

  14. Until a few days ago I didn’t even know there were movie theatres without assigned seats in other countries. That just blew my mind. Also that is very expensive, at least to what I am used to. A ticket here costs 6-7$, or 7-9$ on weekends, 3D being the more expensive ones. We don’t have sweetboxes, but the theatre I go to has a balcony for the two biggest halls (there are 14 in total) and that costs extra, but you get like a table between seats. And the big combo (large drink and large popcorn) costs under 10$. You can get other stuff too, I never have. Also there is a candy store inside the cinema. I love that movie theatre.

    • Theaters without assigned seats are pretty common here in the U.S. and Canada. As an theater usher, sometimes I get questioned from Asian or Oz/NZ folks asking me if there are assigned seats.

  15. I really love your WANK and TL;DR videos! ^-^
    But, I’ve got to say: 30$ for a
    movie (even considering that they’re sweetbox tickets) I find it really
    expensive. Although I was told that in Japan is the same: going to the
    movies is as expensive as going to a theatre watch a play.

  20. WAIT- It costs $20 in Canada for a movie ticket?! I live in Michigan and it costs around $7 or $8.

    3 years ago
    • *hand raise* Canadian here. ^_^ It does cost close to 20, once taxes come in. Pre taxes, a regular (non 3D) movie costs $11, and a 3D movie costs $14. If you want to talk adding snacks in there … hoooboy. Going to the movies generally costs me $25, for just myself.

      ((Edit to remove html tags that I did not intend to be there!!))

      • Wow, good for you! Movie tickets here (In Barbados) are $21 and if you’re going 3D you have to cough up another $7. And of course, an arm and a leg for snacks.

        3 years ago
        • $25 CAN is like $50 in Barbados.
          21 bucks here is only ~$10.50 in US/CAN. Trust me tickets there are can be more expensive. And it’s $16 ($8US) for regular movies at Olympus isn’t it? $21 is for VIP. And the drive in is only $15 ($7.50 US)

          I know at Limegrove, the movies can range between 20-40 bucks depending on time it is, if you want to ultra lux seats and whether it is 3D, but that is a high end deluxe cinema. And there are still $6 ($3 US) Tuesdays at the Olympus and $8 ($4 US) double features at the drive in on Mon/Tues.

          Not to mentions that snacks are exorbitant in any movie theatre I have been to.

          After living in the States for years I can tell you movies are much cheaper here, especially because of the 2:1 exchange rate.

          3 years ago
      • Whoah so expensive! I freaked out about paying almost $20 once for a popcorn combo. I said forget it, we can spend almost as much at Red Lobster for lunch and get a decent meal. This was in the US though..hehe.

  21. I remember watching a Korean drama and when the couple went into the cinema/theatre…and when I saw the seats or should I say, couches.. I was shocked. That is so freaking cool! >< I think my country (malaysia) kinda have them too. I remember my brother's friend bought gold class tickets and he told me that they gave blankets and the seats were bigger and more comfortable and stuff. I have to buy a gold class ticket one day…. when I can FINALLY drive! ):<

  22. I went to the movies like five times while I was in Korea, they are awesome and so cheap! It was kind of awkward when I saw Rush though because the German and Italian dialog was indeed only subbed in Korean XD Could work out the gist of what they were saying though ;)

    And Catching fire was awesome! I have read the books, but my friends hasn’t and we were both crying all the time (Rue! Why?) These movies could easily have been made into weaker films, but I think the casting director made some amazing choices and the screenwriter who really knew where to tweak the source material to make the story telling more efficient, saved it.
    And I totally have a girl crush on Jennifer Lawrence she is just epic in every way.

  23. Ha! I can totally relate to the subtitles thing. My ex boyfriend use to take me to a movie theater in Mexico all the time. The movies would be in English with Spanish subtitles so it was all good but once someone would start speaking a foreign language I would have a deer in headlights moment. He would quickly lean over and start translating for me. I can understand a good amount of Spanish but to read it and translate it during a movie never happened well, it moves way to fast. FYI we would go to that theater because it was 100% more luxurious than American theaters (at the time) and way cheaper. More theaters are becoming like this in the US but at insane prices.

  30. Movies theatres need the sweetbox selection. If it gets me away from immature brats and annoying people at the movie theater while I’m with my bf, then I would be super happy. Yes, I’ve sat near immature kids where I got sprayed with soda. Also, I hate people who speak during the movie to state the obvious. I saw a woman tell her kid everything going on in the movie. It was a cgi animated movie, a kid can understand wtf is going on.

    Movie theatres suck in Canada… I don’t ever buy food because it’s overpriced and I stopped eating popcorn. If I remember to, I sneak a bottled drink in the movie that I bought for like $1 or $2.
    Sad thing is, is that I have a point card and I have 2 free movies banked up on them… never see a reason to use it…

  31. Heh, I recently moved to DC and had a bit of sticker shock when I realized that afternoon movie tickets are like $12 each (I miss the $4.25 theater back home and the $1 movies at school ;-;) BUT I discovered that if you go in the morning they’re only $10 and my aunt found a $25 giftcard that they weren’t using~
    Also, very envious of the sweetbox seats (my friends and I would totally use those) but y’all can keep the onion popcorn. o.O

  32. I haven’t watched Catching Fire yet because I have a project review on Tuesday and everyone is telling me how awesome the movie is….. I’m so depressed -_- but oh well… December 6th is my birthday so…maybe I will… ahem…. pay a visit to the mall-cinema? :)
    Btw I looove your make up Martina! The instant you appeared on the video I knew you did it for the special occasion haha

          ♥♥♥♥♥♥

          P.S: about the "more healthy eating" …I meant like "more healthy eating habits" cause you kind of, a lot of times, skip meals then eat snacks and sugary stuff in one go :P …hopefully once the project ends you'll be back to a regular eating. ! :)

    • Haha don’t worry you always do a great job of being just the right amount of crazy in your videos^^ I’m really looking forward to your future videos, but don’t forget to look after your health too! We will understand if you can’t post videos on a regular basis when you are in Canada… And in the meantime we’ll always be here to give you a hug when you feel too tired or discouraged :D

  36. OMGMartina!!!!!!!!!!!!- I cried my freaking my eyes out too- and THAT scene was epic- I threw a freaking hysterical fit at the end- I was controlling myself so much from literally SOBBING sobbing if you know what I mean,
    Other than that they had Catching Fire themed popcorn buckets and reusable cups xD-in Bangkok that is……Seoul looks like a lot of fun in terms of movie theater experience
    Will you guys watch The Hobbit?????? T____T I cried when the trailer started- I tell you it wasn’t a good start for me AT ALL

    • Nooo! Ahh! You started with season 6? Start with season 1! The episodes
      were a little campy in the beginning but they improve with each season
      especially since the interest in the show clearly had an impact on its
      budget. :P Season 6 has actually been kind of a disappointment, but I
      loved seasons 1-5! Or, if you just want to see a sample of how good
      Doctor Who is before you commit, watch Blink, from season 3 I believe,
      or Midnight from season 4. Those are two of my favourite episodes and Doctor Who at its best . :)

    • Oh no! You came in at an unlucky time, when the writing was getting confusing and plot-holey. Go back! Go back to a simpler time when the writers weren’t running out of ideas! Most of it was good before then, trust me.
      I love Doctor Who. I have to. I’m Welsh. It’s a requirement :P
