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. About the subtitles, I went to see The Hobbit 2 in Malaysia and it was subbed in Malay and Chinese, but when the Orks when speaking in Ork I couldn’t understand it because there was no English. I had to ask my friend to translate the Chinese for me.

  2. the video is no longer available :(

  3. I have never had cheese or onion popcorn, yum.

  4. I almost thought you were going to break into the “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” music theme.

  5. HOLY CRAP GUISE our movie tickets are like 6 dollars a person D: that so much less haha!

  6. Hi! Absolutely love you guys! I was just on Pinterest and searched South Korea. Something that caught my eye were pictures of a place called Love Land Jeju Island. Have you guys been, because I see this as an awesome W.A.N.K.? Do you know anyone who has? One description said it was a popular honeymoon destination after the war, is it still and what are other popular honeymoon destinations in Korea. Lastly, is it because its mainly a honeymoon destination that they have erotic art publicly displayed? thanks.

  7. Mostly subbed, but movies for pre-school kids are dubbed.

  8. When I saw this title I was like what? didn’t we already see the movie theaters? I did NOT realize it was that long ago!! *sigh*
    But ya.. it needed an update lol :P
    Thanks for taking us along on your date night! haha you really do love us nasties XD

  9. i just came back home after watching hunger games: catching fire. turn on my computer, see a new WANK video and u guise buying tickets to hunger games. we must have telepathic connection

  10. first of all, i hate you that you got to see Catching Fire right away! Japan is retarded with its releases of American movies, so i’ll probably get to see it by 2015… if i’m lucky… T_T second, your Catching Fire makeup is awesome, Martina! and i totally noticed it right away before you even mentioned it! XD and third, those sweet boxes are cool! i wish we could have that here! cuz the bf and i really like going to the movies together! ^_^ even though it’s crazy expensive here… the food is cheap, like, you can get a big popcorn for 4$, but one movie ticket costs about 20$. lame.

  11. so you guys are behind the times with how movies are in Canada. :) you are missing out all that seat ordering and popcorn and meal deals I can buy at home on my phone and then present my phone at the theater to grab my reserved seat. also we have VIP theatre’s in Edmonton, Alberta where it is 18+ only the seat are leather and huge with a table to go with every one. :) you also don’t have to leave your seat to get food because you have a waiter that comes to your seat to take your order and you can get a verity of food. my favorite is the fried pickles, and there are health options to like salads which are good because I have eaten there before. they also have desert :) the best part by far though is the alcohol that you could order thus the age limit. :) You should really go check one out next time your in Canada. other then that love you guys and I can’t wait for the results of the EYK awards.

  12. Jennifer Lawrence is fast becoming my favorite actor. She has been amazing in everything I’ve seen her in. Have you seen Winter’s Bone? She’s great in that, and she absolutely killed it in Silver Linings Playbook.

  13. I loved hunger games 2 too!!! I also thought it was better than the first even though I was happy with the first. The second book was my favorite out of the series so I was happy it played out so well. Jennifer Lawrence was so amazing! Her emotional acting was spot on!! You know its a great movie when you forget that its actors playing a part like with this movie. It felt so real. Anyway, I was so happy with it I’m probably going to go see it again this weekend! Glad you guys enjoyed it too!

  14. In Hong Kong, you can get savory (salted but no butter) popcorn and caramel popcorn or half and half of both, but uh, onion and cheese popcorn sound amazing. Also, here in HK, you can get candies and hotdogs and sometimes they have vegetables with dips that you can buy, depending on the theatre. Although, I think I’d prefer squid…I love squid. XD

  15. OMG, first episode of Running Man was shot there!!!

  16. Can I just say I love the ‘huh’ sound effect, it sounds like Zico.

  17. Awesome wank. Did you see Thor, Simon? You should do a review!!! It would open my happy!!! :)

  18. wow that’s so cheap! I don’t know about anywhere else but in the UK the cinemas are ridiculously over-priced, especially the big chain cinemas like Odeon and Cine Word . £10 for a small popcorn and a coke? £4 for a bag of sweets? Nah mate, I can get all of that for less than £5 in the supermarket across the road thanks.

  19. I just came from the movie!!! All the feels! It was soo good. I was really disappointed with the first one but this was epic!

  20. It’s expensive here in the USA too. $16 a ticket for a horrible, uncomfortable, sticky seat in South Florida. And snacks? Forget it. $6 for water.

  21. 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!!

  22. I love love love Jennifer lawrence. Ahhh fan girl moment :D :D

  23. 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.

  24. Awesome video~ I was going to see Catching Fire at the CGV near my house hee in busan. Can’t wait to see it!

  25. 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?

  26. Thank you for eating so much… FOR SCIENCE!!! :D

  27. I just saw Catching Fire. It was so good! I want to borrow Katniss’ gown!

    Blarrgglllbargling. lol. Is the origin latin? ^^

  28. Btw, this video was super fun and I love your eye makeup, Martina!

  29. Wah, I’m gonna sneak off ninja style to go see Catching Fire! Except..I don’t have to sneak off, I could just tell my husband that I’ll go see it tomorrow…but sneaking off sounds more fun. :P *random thoughts after too many carbs from turkey dinner*

  30. 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.

  31. 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.
    You lucky ducks!!! *sniff*
    Hugz!!!!

  32. 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.

  33. 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!

  34. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. you should have brought pig with you to the movies.

  37. Can anyone tell me what mall is this? Is it Times Square?

  38. I say you guys watch another movie on a weekday!! Psh, to show us the golden(?) seats of course!
    Ps
    Thank you for another awesome video!

  39. Love the video! I’m trying to learn Korean for my dream trip one day ^___^ If you could show how you order food on future
    WANKs/FAPFAPs I think that would be super helpful. Keep up the great work!

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

    • *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.

        • $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.

      • 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.
