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!

    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.

    OMG! THAT SQUID! We ate that everyday. Fave Busan streetfood! It’s really goooood! *salivating*

    I went back to this video coz my Z-Seat experience watching RIO2 reminded me of this WANK. The Z Seat is like the SWEETBOX area, ‘cept that we have La-z boy seats — 12 seats all in all, boxed by twos in 2 rows. A family occupied the whole back row and 2 couples occupied both ends of the front row. And there I was all alone in the middle singing 2NE1’s Lonely lonely lonely

    I have never had cheese or onion popcorn, yum.

  7. Matt Clayton

    That fried squid and cheese popcorn sound delicious. I guess Korean moviegoers practice better etiquette at the movie theaters though… no texting, talking loudly or little kids acting up, right?

    And cheaper too? Maybe I should move to Korea…

    Jennifer Lawrence is from my hometown, she went to my rival high school >:D

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

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

  11. Gorgeous Gag

    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.

  12. Ashleigh Kim

    Ahhh your videos always end up curing my homesickness even if it’s just for a little while.

    I’m watching Catching Fire tomorrow! Hope it’s as good as you make it out to be Martina~

  13. recently the movie theatre by my house has that seat reserving thing. so like if you buy your tickets via fandango or even if you buy them via kiosk in the theatre, you can reserve what seats you want and all the seats are these super comfortable reclining seats and some of them have an armrest that lifts so like if you want to cuddle with significant other/friends you can UuU

    also i think they’re (trying to) sell real foods and like ???????? but they have those futuristic weird touchscreen every flavour of everything coke machines

    it’s bougie as hecky

    they don’t have butter squid though.

    LAAAAAAMMMMEEEE.

  14. Michael Oppengeim

    These sweetboxes remind me of Lux level seating at US theaters. Except a lot more intimate. And a lot more cheaper.

  15. chocoroon

    I miss going to the movies in Korea! I went to the movies this morning in American and got a child’s combo popcorn and a small popcorn with water and it cost $16! WTF?!?! Also can’t believe you never had the raisin water. That was my favorite drink in Korea! Even though it’s kind of expensive I LOVE IT!!

  16. Oscar_de_Jarjayes

    Okay so sweet popcorn (with caramel) is definitely a european thing! Even in Korea they don’t sell sweet popcorn…interesting! ^^

    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

  18. 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

  19. Priya Shields

    “This guy” as you dubbed him, is the highlight of my Tuesdays and Thursdays. And rest of the week days(:

  20. Anthony Rivera

    i think the AMC Theaters are 10 dollars but we dont have those sweetboxes :(

  21. Movies only cost $6.50 AUD for me. But then i’m a student with an awsome local cinema. The adult tickets are like $2 more (except on tuesday or before 6:30 then students are like 4.50-5.50 and adults 6.50!!). *high fives cineplex* There are no movies without choc-tops. Your korean squid snacks are dead to me. :P

  22. Susanna Tahvanainen

    OMG! Catching fire is amazing! The actors are great, the director is awesome and it was so much better than the first movie! Cathing fire actually stayed true to the book and Jennifer Lawrence is the greatest actor and I think I wouldn’t like the Hunger Games as much if Katniss was played by a differend actor!

  23. DuchessRhea

    What a coincidence! Me and a couple friends went to see Catching Fire the day it came out, and it was their first time in a Korean movie theater.

    And HELL YES THE MOVIE. Holy crud I bawled my eyes out (and then belatedly remembered that I’d put on mascara that isn’t waterproof X__X), even though I’d read the book before, too. I have to agree that the second is definitely better than the first. They stepped it up a LOT.

    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.

  25. Theatres have changed across the big pond too. Theatres aren’t just Stadium seating anymore. A lot of the theatres are starting to put in personal recliners. Other movie theatres also have what is term a Dine-in-Theatre where you can have lunch/dinner while you watch your movie. There is actually one close to where I live. The menu is what you would see at a restaurant plus a full bar to get your drinking on. Another theatre was remodel with just the personal recliners. It makes it very hard to not fall asleep while watching your movie. Both Dine-in and the remodel theatre is assigned seating you get to pick your seats when ordering tickets. No worries about someone taking your seat anymore.

    I remember reading a break down on where the amount of money went from a ticket. Most of the money from a ticket doesn’t go to the theatre. I believe it was 70%/80% from gross sales goes to the studio during the first few weeks and not to the movie theatre which is why concessions are very pricey. Movie theatres wouldn’t stay afloat if it wasn’t for the munchies you eat. Last time I went to a concert, a bottle water cost more than when I went to a movie. Sports, concerts … they all pay the bills with concessions. Sure it sucks but than again do I really need to eat that 800 calorie popcorn?

  26. OMG I love your eye make up, Martina!! As much as I loved all of JLaw’s looks in the movie! <3

  27. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧Gina✧*:・

    Are english movies in South Korea subbed or dubbed?

  28. kaward

    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.

    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.

  30. Ashley Johnston

    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!

  31. Beccatokki

    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

  32. Kyoko Souen 早園恭子

    I went and saw it opening night, Catching Fire was AWESOME!!! So so so so good. I liked the first movie but this one was even better and I was totally crying most of th movie.

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

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

  35. Diorgirl79

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

  36. 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.

  37. Fafou Them

    Omg! Saw Catching Fire the day it came out and it was so heart breaking! I had read the book a long time ago and I knew what was going to happen in every scene. Broke. My. Heart. I’m telling you! The movie was that good and that beautifully acted. Everything was so accurate.
    I have no idea what I’m going to do for Mockingjay. That book killed me and I’ve never been so livid at an ending before. Never!…But then to see how emotional the book made me, really shows what a great trilogy it is.

    In short, I recommend it :D

    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!

  39. ⓑⓡⓘⓣⓣⓝⓔⓨ

    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!!

  40. So are the theaters well priced considering the quality? What’s the cost of a normal ticket for a normal seat? Because in my country we pay 12 euros for one ticket at the best movie theater around with not so great seats, not impressive screens and totally not the best sound. I mean it is good but it could be a little better for that kind of money.(I haven’t been to a theater in a long time because the cheapest 6 € weekday tickets are for 11 am shows.) I feel especially bad for the smaller theaters that have the same prices and even crappier seats and smaller screens.
