WTF – Drinking Bingo Balls

Martina and I had very different ideas of what we wanted to do for this video. Martina really loves Korean convenience stores and is fascinated with the always changing strange items. She wants to shoot videos there almost every week. Any excuse she can get she’ll use to film there. “Hay how about we do a Music Monday…in a GS25…or something…about their new Spam Rice balls!” I don’t know what her obsession with convenience stores is all about. The point is, you can see her influence strongly in this video, because she used this drinking bingo ball game as an excuse to try out new things at a convenience store.

I, on the other hand, had a different idea. I wanted to use this as a punishment wheel. Nothing but punishments. McCol soda in one glass; soy sauce and cola in another. Think of it like our punishment dice of old, if you remember our first WANKs from ages ago. We’re definitely going to keep this wheel (and other punishment games) for future reference, probably for the next road trip we go on, but I like watching videos of us suffering, though I hate filming it at the time. I also hate when Martina throws my winning cupcake at the wall.

Okay so onto the drinks. First off, there are plenty of yummy drinks available at Korean convenience stores. Soozee and Leigh simply decided to pick all the stuff they knew we wouldn’t enjoy. Thanks guiiissseee!!!! Let’s just start with the winning of win drink. Ginseng, man: who would make a drink out of it? I know that different people have different tastes. Soo Zee liked the drink, in fact, but for us it just wasn’t….it just wasn’t right. Ginseng is great when it’s in 삼계탕 samgyetang (which is like Korea’s version of chicken noodle soup but with a whole chicken stuffed with sticky rice) because it matches the whole herby medicine like feel to the soup. But I’ve never grown accustomed to it. Ginseng tastes like how a farm smells. Sweet grass, hay, dirt, horses, pig, and just a little bit of poop. I don’t like farm smells. Martina likes farm smells. Martina smells like a farm. That’s the end of this story.

The other drinks were really not as bad in comparison to the Ginseng drink. They were just all blessings in comparison to liquid milky farm smell, but we were a bit confused with as to what the Mackiss drink was that Martina drank. It was alcoholic at 5.6% and the bottle design was very funky and cool but we had never tasted anything like it before in Korea. So we looked it up. It turns out Mackiss is made from barely spirits and sesame leaf extract. MMMMMMM! Doesn’t that sound great? Supposedly it’s made to be mixed with ice cream bars, beer, and other fruity drinks. And sesame leaf if supposed to be good for hangovers so you’re drinking away your hangover? I don’t know. I appreciate the effort to make a new drink but this one just didn’t do it for us.

So that’s that. If you want this fun game for yourself you can pick it up on Gmarket and start punishing your friends and family right away! Otherwise, we’re about to go on another Korean road trip soon, and I’m sure you’ll be seeing either this or its cousin in there, so stay tuned :D

  1. Martina- I definitely share your love for Korean convenience store items. I don’t know what it is, but there is definitely something special about them. ^_^ The fun drinks, the random new things that always pop up. They built a MiniMart just across the street from my Hogwan about 6 months before the end of my contract. I was so excited to have a convenience store so close so I could grab a snack or a drink between classes. Le sigh…want to go back…

    Hi Simon and Martina,

  8. Is that sparkling milk like Milkis? I loved Milkis when I was in Korea. :D

    What’s in the green and yellow glass though?

  9. Oh god, that “What?!” sparkling milk thing reminded me of a drink we had in norway for a while: ‘Dus’a mix between milk, and juice.
    And I remember getting fed “ginger soup” to help period cramps in China. It was pretty much choped up ginger and hot water. I have a feeling the taste would be slightly similar.

    Alo vera juice on the other hand is awesome! So good.

    • ginger is waaaaay better than ginseng. Ginger is spicy and has a pretty good flavor, but ginseng (to me) tastes just like dirt. I just don’t like it… :(

  10. Oh my! Those drinks must have been really bad. Just seeing Simon’s face turn from an “Okay” to “What is this?!’ at the milk soda said enough. (the ginseng won at facial expression)

  11. OOOOOOh, my sister brought me Ginseng Schnaps (“In sam ju”) back from Korea, it is so horrible! Everytime a friend comes over to visit, I`m like: you have to try this, it´s from my homecountry (muhahahaha)The best describiton for the taste was: Peanut shells. Those fluffy styrofoam things.
    Yeah. I can imagine what the Ginseng puree tastes like!
    Really enjoy your videos! Hugs and rainbows, K

  12. I would love that game maybe use fireball shots as a punishment, since I’m a sissy when it comes to spice. I’d try to opt for a bunch of alcohol that meshes well together so you don’t get horribly sick the next morning. The drinking game culture in Korea is really amazing, even though this WTF wasn’t all too Korean traditional. I wish there where better games then beer pong and quarters in my neck of the woods.

    My friends are always giving me different beers to taste. I always play the game, but there are not many I like. One time I twitched so bad after a really sour sour that my glassessment flew off. That ginseng drink would be the best revenge!

  14. OK Martina, I love love love the way your hair looks when you bleach and condition it before you re-dye it. The corn gold with platinum and light pink highlights is super sophisticated, super summery and super flattering. I know you like the more intense pink but that combination is amazing.

    • I really like Martina’s hair like this, but she’s not all too fond of having the blonde like that. It’s also a lot lighter because her hair lightened up from her being in the sun so much in the Dominican Republic, so that’s a factor as well. Either way, I love it myself as well, and hope she stays like this :D

  15. I know it is a Filipino delicacy, BUT, there is nothing worse than Balut (fermented chicken egg – buried about 2 weeks before its due to hatch). They call them “chicken abortions”. The smell is like a moldy corpse laying in a sewer. The juice tastes like someone urinated in a bottle of olive oil and let it sit for a month. The solid part tastes like you’d imagine peanut butter that had a dead mouse in it … the feel of the chicken parts scraping your throat on the way down is where I vomited … on the person who made me eat it.

  16. The slow motion facial expressions really make the video.

  17. Asian convenience stores are like a treasure on its own. Always something new, or strange promos to get toys and other cute things.

    If I can get my instant ramen/ramyeon youtube show/mukbang going, I’d love to do a tasting of the questionable foods found at gas stations, convenience stores, and dollar stores… If I’m already subjecting myself to bad instant noodle brands, then it’s no biggie to try out that questionable cheescake cup that is sold at the convenience store…

  18. I kind of want to try the ginseng drink. I actually like red ginseng candy and ginseng in coffee. I doubt I can find it near me though.
