Ok, so first off, sorry for posting this a day late. We had a good reason for it! Our friend flew in from Canada for his wedding. Yay! Some of you might remember him, if you’re ultra, mega Nasties, from some of our first few videos. We talked with him about fried chicken. That was almost five years ago. Fast forward to today, he’s a much happier guy and he got married. Yay! So, we spent most of the day with them, and didn’t get back in time to upload. Sorry!

Anyhow, now that that story is out of the way, hooray for Kimbap! Though this isn’t really kimbap in the way that we know it. We made the traditional kind a year ago or so, and that’s what we usually see at restaurants. Convenience stores predominantly offer triangle kimbap, so when we saw these things in the kimbap section we were very inquisitive. We don’t normally eat kimbap, anyways, because we try to stay away from rice, but when we saw this it’s kind of like when you see a new flavor of chips and you’re like “I shouldn’t care: it’s just chips!” but you try it anyway because you just want to know a biiiit what it tastes like, right? So we did that here.

But we did it for science! We made a video out of it instead. And we’re glad we did! If you’re at a convenience store, get this stuff instead of regular kimbaps. They’re much better! Success!

Also, we want our WTF segment to be more than just bizarre and…questionable content. We’d like to actually shoot videos of the wonderful treasures we find. This counts! And it’s fun filming outside as well, I think.

Side note: anyone see that giant waft of smoke pass by at the 1:30 mark? We talk more about Smoking in Korea, in case you missed it. You can see an example of what it’s like here in Seoul. Yum. Totally love eating food when cigarette smoke caresses it all over. /sarcasm

Anyhow, that’s it for this week. I don’t think there’s gonna be a WTF next week because we’re GONNA BE IN EUROPE! HOLY SMOOKES! We’re totally excited to see you guise! Did you all get tickets yet? But we’ll be trying to post smaller vlog videos while we’re there. Don’t miss out on any of them by clicking this pretty button here. It guarantees you stay up to date, and it also guarantees the undying love of your favorite Korean artist! Bonus!

  1. When’s the next WTF? I’ve missed it.

  2. They’re called 주목밥 (joo-moke-bap) which literally means ‘fist rice’, and since they added ‘동그란’ it is now ’round fist rice’. I’m not entirely sure why they call it fist rice, if it’s because it looks like a fist, or if it’s because when you make it at home, you squish the rice really tight in your fist to make neat little balls. Mysteryyy~

    • I didn’t watch through the whole video before I commented. You said you didn’t think it was jumokbap, but it actually is, I was reading the advertisement for it at 7 eleven the other day and they advertise it as round jumokbap.

  3. They’ve been selling those in japan for years… round onigiri… mmm. I’m surprised you guys didn’t see them when you went there. I’m in Japan now but I’m from Australia so I know what you mean about the expensive water… convenience stores generally = expensive in Australia and do not in any way = convenient.

    By the way I’m eating my kimichi as I watch Eat your Kimchi… yummy.

  4. I think the flavours available depends on where you are.. I live in the South near Gwangju and I found one in my GS25 store that is a Jeonju Bibimbap flavour! It was wonderful and spicy!

  5. Ah I just saw this blog post – you mean Nick? I think his name was? The grumpy fried chicken guy? Lol congrats on his wedding!! Last I heard, you were playing Settlers of Catan with him in Canada. Or something?

    Glad to know he’s uh, much happier now :D

  6. I went out and bought one of these and you guys are so right.. Surprisingly declicious!! The steak one was really yummy. haha but the jelly surrounding it was off-putting. yuck!

  7. I see those all the time (but not those flavors) in the GS25 connected to the international dorms at Yonsei. I just tried the (I think) pork cutlet one the other day, and it was pretty good, and even better when you heat it up a little! And I love the price of bottled water here, at the on campus convenience store, I buy the same bottle of water Simon has for only 400 won (less than 40 cents USD)!

  8. Hi fellow NASTIES, I’m going to spend a couple of hours in Seoul this Sunday, could anybody recommend some good place to get lunch at? It’s gonna be my first time in Korea and my first KOREAN FOOD experience. And if anybody wants to join me and my friend for lunch, that would be even better ;) oh and I can’t read Hangul so the best would be some place with loads of pictures in their menu :D
    Thanks ;)

  9. Heck yeah I got the tickets alrighty @simonandmartina:disqus !! I’m flying across Norway to see you guys, and I’m sooo looking forward to it!! EUROPEAN NASTY POWER AHHYEEH PARTY YEAH

  10. I had to replay the bit where Simon is ‘eating like a duck’, he looks so funny.

  11. Simon should go have an eating competition with Ho Dong on Barefoot friends…

  12. Can’t wait to see you guise in Warsaw^^ are you as excited as I am?! =*_*=

  13. Is Martina’s shirt just one of her recent favs? Or did you guys film multiple segments all on the same day? It seems like the last few videos I have seen, Martina has the exact same shirt.

  14. I really wanted to go…. But it’s expensive to travel to Stockholm and since it’s far away my mother didn’t think that shouldn’t be in Stockholm alone at night….

  15. On the third video of this playlist, what’s the song in the beginning?

  16. SIMON! YOU DON’T LIKE OMURICE!!! I LOVE OMURICE! It’s one of these magical asian drama foods I always dreamed about trying when i went to japan, and I got to try it and it was so delicious!

  17. Do you guys know about a black bean soy drink in Korea, that’s in juice boxes? I heard about it and I was all like, “hit me up with some kimbap and black bean drink, son!”

  18. lol every time i hear kimbap i still get shinees Juliet stuck in my head. shut up shinee tee hee .now I am off to make so me kimbap and put some ranch in it cause its awesome thank you Simon for that one!

  19. Hey Guise (^-^)/

    I was reading a magazine called dolly and it had an extra boy band mag with it, and it had a page about K-pop and how to get into it and I was reading it and they were like “Read eatyourkimchi.com for all your K-pop goss, song reviews and concert info. Its an easy into anything Hallyu” and I was like “EAT YOU KIMCHI! AHHHHH! MUM, EAT YOUR KIMCHI WAS IN MY MAGAZINE! AHHHHH!”

    WAAAHHH you guys made it into an Australia magazine. Good on yous!

  20. Omurice?! Like from Rooftop Prince?! O_o I wantssss~~~! *munching on Reese’s pieces to comfort myself* Oh and I got myself a ticket to the Omona event in Norway! I’m flying in from the “west coast” ㅋㅋ to Oslo the 4th of October just for you guise! I don’t really know anyone else who’s going and I’m technically waaay broke so… Yeah! *excited*

  21. Wait. so this does not have kim? So its just bap?

  22. Ugh I was sympathizing with you yesterday regarding the smoke everywhere but omg that was actually disgusting at 1:30 :/

    • Doesn’t look like it. We’ve got to film Music Monday tomorrow and then do everything that needs to be done before our flights!

      • Thank you for trying to squeeze in another Music Monday before your trip. Really appreciate it. Also I saw that wad of smoke fly by at 1:29 and has to rewind to see if it wasn’t a transition effect of something. Ugh.

        NYC is supposedly a smoke free city. I see signs at some small parks like Herald Square that say “smell the flowers not the smoke”. But every day I walk down the street and get smoke blown into my face. Mostly because most buildings have signs saying no smoking 20 feet from entrance. You get group of people huddled tot eh side of a building smoking or they gofor a walk while smoking. Also because the city is too over crowded. I’ve walked through Central Park after work and smelled cigar smoke. People walk through parks to get fresh air and I don’t understand why smokers feel like, oh let me go to the park to get free air and smoke while i am at it. @_@

        • I burst out laughing when you said NYC was supposed to be smoke free. I never saw so much smoking in my life, it’s like a way of life.

  23. I got tickets! See you in Stockholm!!!

  24. We have these in Japan. they’re onigiri. the word onigiri in japanese just means “rice ball” so it doesn’t need to have the seaweed to apply. but there’s a whole panoply of them here. my favorite are the “purple rice” ones and chinese fried rice ones :p i hope you guys get more different kinds over there too!

    i used to eat them for breakfast as well (not anymore since, diet… T_T) but i remember when my best friend from home came to visit one year, and i bought 2 triangle ones with tuna for breakfast when we were on a trip, she was horrified (rice and tuna for BREAKFAST?!?) and refused to eat it. but by the end of her trip she was eating one a day. lol.

  25. I have actually seen those kimbabs in the new drama “The Suspicious Housekeeper” ^^

  26. They kind of look like Bap burgers. I don’t what their official name is, but all of my fellow teachers eat at this place that has rice ball burgers. They have two “buns” of yummy rice and different fillings like Kimchi-ham-cheese-tuna and so many other combinations. Anyways, it looked like you were eating a bap burger that was missing one of its “buns” lol

  27. Those look delicious. I wish we had those at gas stations/convenience stores here. Instead they have sandwiches and sketchy hot dogs that could have been roasting there for days..

  28. simon last week was weird penis and now you are swallowing giant balls? XD /sorry guys i had to/ XD SEE i just put the PG on your blog post XD

  29. I swear I’m going to do my semester abroad In Korea instead of France, despite being fluent in french, desperately wanting to meet my family in France, and being able to study history in a country where centuries of history are in everything, just so that when you make food videos, I can go eat whatever ever it is that is making me hungry.

  30. They have these in convenience stores in Japan. Along with the triangle ones (Onigiri) & the long ones cut into individual pieces :)

  31. Oh man, I already ate dinner but I’m hungry again. I live close to Ktown in Buenos Aires, I should be able to find stores selling this kind of thing HOPEFULLY.

  32. Oooh oohh!! I tried the omurice one when I was in Korea! It was delicious~ :3

  33. One more link in your blog and it’d be ridiculous ;) jk guys
    Those square baps look delicious! Send one my way. Ya made me hungry. I’ll send you home made flautas in return.

    Flautas aka rolled tacos just in case you’re wondering lol

    • Ha! We never know what’s a good amount of links or not. We keep on thinking “well, people already know what we’re talking about, right? So we don’t need to link it” but some people are new as well, so we try to put in links.


      • I’m sure ya’ll have had more links before but I think I only noticed last night since I was using my phone. I was playing a game of frogger with my fingers to avoid clicking on one while I was reading. This new ioS7 is touchy.

        Links are always great. In fact I checked out the fried chicken link. Whoa that was before my time with ya’ll (2011), and I thought I’d gone back and seen most of your videos. I was wrong XD

  34. I was not hungry. Now I am hungry. TO THE MIDNIGHT SNACK MOBILE! D:

  35. Which convenience stores sell these? I need to buy this RIGHT NOW.

  36. They look really delicious, and also, if you translate 동그란, it means ’round’. However, I prefer calling this one Nude Kimbap… just to keep with the WTF theme xD Enjoy Europe guise!!
