And here it is: Day 2 of our epic road trip! If you missed Day 1, you can watch it and read about it here!

We had to cut it up into different WANKs, simply because we had far too much footage to work with. Our Day 1 footage was over 20 minutes long, and we cut out A LOT. Day 2 had a lot less footage, mostly because we didn’t have a full day to work with. The vast majority of the day was spent driving back to Seoul. Whoa. Driving into Seoul on the weekends SUCKS SO BAD! The…traffic…is…so…slow.

Anyhow, we still had a bit of fun this week, and got to finally do the GWIYOMI CHALLENGE! Cast your votes as to who won the challenge in the comment section below. Though, I fully understand that some of you might find commenting too difficult because you’re so busy, so I’ll take some of the burden off your shoulders: copy and paste this in the comment section:


That’s it! You don’t have to think of a response. Just…copy and paste. Voila! See, we here at Eatyourkimchi care about the community, and want to make things better for you :D Also, you might notice that, even though we’re both on camera at the same time, it can only really be one person writing a blog post at a time. I wonder if any of you ever pick up on who’s writing, and – even better – read it in his/her voice. Another tip: Spudgy doesn’t write blog posts. Reading them in his voice won’t be that useful.

Anyhow, we went to Nami Island, which is where Winter Sonata was filmed…or something like that. We don’t know, because none of us are really that familiar with Winter Sonata. We just know of its impact on the Hallyu Wave, and a bunch of people go to Nami Island now because of Winter Sonata. For us, though, we’re not really emotionally invested with either the island or the drama, and so we found going there a bit…bland. We had to make our own fun.

It was really pretty, though, and the day was gorgeous. It was just a bit too hot for us, but that’s probably because we were carrying around all of our camera gear as well as our fat old lazy dog. Spudgy had a tough time of it all. He likes being outdoors, but only to a limited extent.

Anyhow, with all that being said, we hope you liked our little adventure with the Eatyourkimchi Crew. If the videos are successful enough, we’ll gladly do more of them in the future. Today’s our brainstorming session in which we try to plan out Future WANKs, FAPFAPs, and TL;DRs, and I’m sure in there we’ll lay out another Road Trip somewhere. We’d really like to do one in Busan! Hmm. Maybe.

And, on that note, we’ve got some scenes that didn’t make the final cut. Check em out if you want to see us do more dumb stuff :D


  1. You gotta love a group of friends who can allude to a penguin’s anus and feel comfortable.

  2. Duuuude Simon was the best, in my opinion!! You were pulling out 귀여미 moves that I’ve never seen :D Precious~

  3. Vote for spudgy all the way!

  4. Martina’s gwiyomi was priceless

  5. ” Don’t say clap when you clap ! ” *lol* who-ever said that, I said it at the same time as the person *lol* xD

  6. LinZi

    Martina wins! coz she is so hardcore. yeah.


    ah but seriously I vote for simon, gwiomi moves I’ve never seen before. I laughed

  8. So after you mention reading in Spudgy’s voice, I couldn’t STOP reading it in Spudgy’s voice.

  9. XLovelyFantasy

    Everyone was good in their own way! I can’t pick!

  10. OMG SO HARD TO CHOSE ONE! I’m going with Spudgy! I just can’t with him! LOL ^^

  11. I’m voting for INTERN LEIGH! She went all in with the make-me-barf-aegyo, and was completely SUCCESSFUL! GO INTERN LEIGH! Honorable mention is SooZee for being completely ADD in the middle of her Gwiyomi, and for her adorable “Aigooooo”

  12. KATHyphenTUN

    I love these videos sooo much!!!! I can’t wait for more of these! you guise are awesome!!

    and also..SIMON OPPA WINS! OMG HIS WAS SO CUTE!… but seriously Simon does have my vote

  13. Oh my gosh Martina!! If you haven’t seen Winter sonata, you would DIE watching it because everyone wears turtlenecks and scarves all the time. I don’t remember seeing a single neck..

  14. I vote for SOO ZEEEEEE gwiyomi she’s so awkward and cool

  15. Ahahaha I spy the beginnings of an Arrested Development chicken dance in the bloopers, extra kudos to you Martina :’)
    …..I think Leigh wins though xD

  16. I vote for Martina! Heavy metal, nice touch ;D

  17. I actually HATE “What’s your name”, but now, it’s stuck in my head and I NEED to listen to it. Thank you Simon.

    Maybe you should consider getting sponsored by 4minutes XD

  18. I vote for Martina because she made me laugh like an idiot!!! Leigh gets 2nd place :)

  19. Simon was actually the cutest !!

  20. Can you bring back the WANK dice/challenges? They were really cute~!

  21. Spudgy AND Simon

  22. I VOTE FOR MARTINA!!!! >.<

  23. I don’t know who to pick. You blow my mind.

  24. Kate Allan


    No, really, I was going to vote for Simon already. :P


  26. Simon was pretty darn cute with the challenge! I vote for Simon!

  27. Christina Rolfe

    Well, the lights flickered in my dorm room while watching Martina’s attempt at the challenge, so my vote goes to Martina! Her heavy metal version has pleased the Yonsei electricity gods! Or the humidity is just really stupid right now. But probably the former option.

  28. Sometimes I’ll be reading a blog post with Martina’s voice in my head and then halfway through realize it’s Simon (or vice versa) and quickly switch XD


  30. SIMON WINS tho Martina’s was really funny too xDD

  31. Vote for Simon. I was pleasantly surprised that I liked it the best.

  32. Intern Leigh!!!!!

  33. Leigh!! (Well, Spudgy, but are we only allowed to vote for the humans?) So much aegyo! Anyone who can make the whole crew puke totally wins.

  34. I vote for MARTINAA~ :D And Spudgy in second ;-; hahahaha
    Please keep with these travel-WANKS!
    Usually when people announce they’ll do 귀요미 I’m all “NOOOOoooOooOOoooOOOO!” but this was so fun hahahahah

  35. Leigh all the way :D


    Ahem. Actually I think this was the gwiyomi with the best ”flow” (if that makes sense), and for some very strange reason it made me think of Honey-sempai the whole time (don’t ask me why… the smile maybe?)

    Soooooo…. I vote for Simon :D

    And also, I really really enjoyed this WANK, so I’d be glad to see other road trips like that!

  37. LEIGH!!!!!!

  38. Martina Eonnie ftw! Hell yeah! *makes adorable faces*

  39. Gemma Deacon

    My vote goes to Martina! I wasn’t expecting heavy metal incorporated in there! xD

  40. i really enjoyed watching the crew go out on wanks and fap faps together. i would definitely love to see more of these road trip videos in the future.

  41. I vote for SooZee ! :D

  42. Lauren Semple Stroman

    Martina’s death metal made me laugh out loud (for reals, no lol’ing here!)!!! Simon’s was def aegyo, but Martina wins for originality :D

  43. SooZee wins!!! Her shyness added to the cuteness!

  44. OMG! Martina yours was so epic!!!!! Lol but I vote for Leigh xD

  45. oh yah spudgy won second place

  46. Simon won for sure Martina scared me SooZee she was good and Intern Leigh was to cute

  47. Martina for gwiyomi, death metal gwiyomi wins.
    But Leigh’s gwiyomi is hilariously cute. And I never expected Simon to be that ridiculous.

  48. I vote for Soozee. I loved the hair combing. And she did it in Korean. That beats ALL.


  50. Simon wins!! That was so super adorable! <3

  51. SooZee all the way! XD

  52. I vote for SPUDGY !! SO cute !!

  53. I’m kinda digging Martina’s “Terminator-Rocky” hybrid baby version of Gwiyomi. Makes you wonder how they would do this in real life…

  54. I’m voting for the eat your kimchi crew. Sorry I really can’t descied. You were all awesome. Wanna see more :3 Alwyas be a nasty ♥~ P.S.: Simon you really have a lot of aegyo ;D


    hahaha…there you go Simon! my vote goes to you!! :)

  56. Spudgy wins hands down! Adorable!
    I’m gonna do this gwiyomi with my dog :)

  57. omg the sketch patbingsu ad //dying and the reappearing ostriches
    It was so hard for me to choose between simon and martina T_T but it’ll be martina for me! :D

  58. Voting for Simon!

  59. kawaii_candie

    I’m torn between Simon and Martina but… i thought you guys were gonna explain what exactly is Gwiyomi, because…. I still don’t get it. where does it come from?

    • I believe that it started on a TV show ( MTV Diary) last year with Illhoon from BtoB. He was trying to be cute and made up the song. Then it became a hit when he went on Weekly Idol and did it and it became a meme for people to copy. Illhoon was one of the most popular variety idols because of it and was forced to do it whenever he went on a show.

      You know that aegyo is really a interesting pert of Korean culture so the gwiyomi or ‘cutie’ player is evidence of that.

      • kawaii_candie

        oh, i see! thanks a bunch!

        though i like S&M’s videos, and i like listening to k-pop, i’m not into the whole idol-cult thing so i dunno about that whole culture stuff… thanks for explaining it to me! ^_^

        • Lol, actually, all I did was Wikipedia gwiyomi player. I didn’t know much about the origin of it at first either, except for the fact that it started with an idol named Illhoon.

      • actually i think it was a song first, by some person i don’t really remember, but there were no hand motions, and then Illhoon created the hand motions and just used the 1+ 1 part of the song

  60. voting for Martuna… you rock! aegyozilla!!!!

  61. I vote for the spudgy, sorry simon, you came in close second!

  62. Also, gotta give it to Intern Leigh for cutest gwiyomi!

  63. Lately I have been wondering who writes the blog posts

  64. Simon Oppa! omg so cute! But seriously, I vote for Leigh’s aegyo version xD

  65. I think you guys should do more travel videos! and I vote for Leigh

  66. It would be totally awesome if you guys did something like this in Busan! ^^

  67. I vote for Simon! His gwiyomi was indeed very very cute. :P And you guys should definitely do more of these road trip EYK crew WANKS. They are seriously so fun to watch, I probably wouldn’t mind if you put up 20 min clips. :3

  68. MARTINA, WOW. THAT WAS AWESOME. YOU ARE AWESOME. No one was expecting that and just… omg. I don’t care who gets the most votes. YOU WIN OK? (^__^)/

  69. Martina was clearly the best!

  70. Lol, the minute he wrote “Spudgy doesn’t write blog posts. Reading them in his voice won’t be that useful”, I automatically began to read it in the Spudgy voice! Couldn’t help myself. So Cute!


    I vote for spudgy

  72. MARTINA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  73. LEIGH was the only one who really gave herself over to CUTE – and that’s what Aegyo is. Eveybody else was holding back! LEIGH wins without a doubt.

  74. I vote for Martina XD I really liked her heavy metal version of 귀요미 > <

  75. Spudgy in first with Leigh and Soozee tied for second.

  76. I vote for… Martina. That was pretty freakin awesome.

  77. Simon wins :)

    Also, loved this trip! Lots of us would love to see Busan and other cool places around S.Korea!

  78. i vote for spudgy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

  79. Hmm, tough decision, but I’m voting for Leigh! Super cuteness!

  80. What brand of sunglasses is Soozee wearing?? I want to get one too!!!!

  81. I laughed every time at the ‘wild ostrich’ sound. That’s why I love you guys, oh so random! I am going to have to vote for Martina. Super original!

  82. I vote for SooZee! So adorably awkward :) Also, I love the blonde hair! Looks awesome.

  83. Leigh !! =D you’re great girl!! (and spudgy? XD)

    Martina’s was so funny! I almost laugh but it’s 1 AM so I shouldn’t if I don’t want to wake up my parents! XD

  84. I vote for Captain Spudgy!!! Simon, you were a very close second. I was totally going to vote for you until I saw Spudgy.

  85. Haha~ hilarious.. xD That Patbingsu advertisment.. xD It got better and better.. xDD

    I TOTALLY vote for Martina.. LIKE SERIOUSLY! That was hilarious.. although I did love Suzees too~ ♥


  87. yanagiba yusuke22

    y dont simon driving?

  88. I vote for Soozee! Simon….good effort and I’d totally give you a second place. Leigh…oh Leigh…totally cute….too cute…cavity creating cute… And Martina…you scared me….like made me want to poo a little “scared me.”

  89. Simon for sure xD

  90. MARTINA TOTALLY WINS!!! Simon’s started out strong but kinda dropped it at the end.

  91. I have to say Leigh! (Sorry Simon) Martina was pretty awesome too! XD

  92. Martina’s version made me almost choke on my tea, so she def wins.

  93. Your trip was awesome! :D (except for the random…penguin….. – . -”)

    Thank you for sharing!


    P.S: I vote for Spudgy ^^ (if Meemers did one… it would’ve been difficult to pick :)) )

  94. Although, I’m tempted to vote for Leigh. She was too cute when she acted confused. But,…I just have to go with Simon. I loved when he did 4 and peeked through his hands. It was too cute! Sorry Leigh :( my vote is Simon. (Like NaToTheWak said, we really should have a second round. It really would would only be fair.)

  95. I vote for Martina, then Soozee!! :)

  96. Between Martina and spudgy…

  97. Simon definitely won!!!!!

  98. I vote for Soozee, because her gwiyomi was SO incredibly awkward it actually turned the awkward corner into awesomeville. (also: she did it in Korean.)

    As a side note: I always associate Nami Island with TeukSo. :)

  99. Alright, after watching this, I KNOW that Martina has been watching “Answer Me 1997″. Those goat noises when something happens? Yeah, I see what you did there.


  100. Was that an “Arrested Development” chicken joke, Martina? hahaha

    I vote for Simon! His was actually pretty original hehe

  101. MARTINA FOR THE WIN!!! I vote for Martina :) Have to say that the one who makes the ostrich makes the funniest voice EVER! I laugh so much when the sound and the ostrich came by!!!

    I thank you soo much for the videos you make!! Love for you all!!

    Martina: “Your simply the best, better then all the rest! Better then anyone, anyone I ever met!” :D

  102. 1st place: Spudgy wins by default simply because he is super cute without having to do anything. 2nd place: I’m going to vote for SooZee, because she was so shy about it and her awkwardness made it extra cute.

  103. Ray

    Soo Zee’s she was soooooooooooooooooooooo cute

  104. Christina Wyttenbach

    Leigh totally won!!

  105. LEIGH !!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL THE WAY !

  106. “SIMON OPPA WINS! OMG HIS WAS SO CUTE!” <—— There, happy?

  107. OMG,Martina that was freaking awesome!
    Psssttt,you should have added 666 Gwyomi ;)
    But,I think I’m voting for Leigh,that was so adorable ^^
    Oh,and Simon oppa that was actually original,I didn’t see something like that before :)

  108. I vote for Spudgy!
    Then Leigh and Martina!

  109. Allison Merkel

    Leigh is my EYK Crew bias so I have to vote for her. Unnie so cute!!!

  110. I vote for Leigh ^—-^

  111. I vote for Spudgy!

    p.s. I sense someone watched Reply 1997

  112. I vote for Spudgy!

    p.s. I sense someone watched Reply 1997!

  113. Simon!!! it was so cute! I loved it! :DD I vote for you Simon! :D

  114. “SIMON OPPA WINS! OMG HIS WAS SO CUTE!” …oh wait…I think I’m older…And Leigh was super cute :) Over kill for the win :P

  115. Leigh Unnie wins!!!!! So cute!

  116. ßreton Sunny Shine Lewis

    Spudgy <3

  117. Leigh wins! Martina you’re awesome and Simon gets credit for trying. Soozee – what are we gonna do with you? jk

  118. I vote for Martina :D she rocked :D

  119. I vote Simon because it was traditional yet original (I love the heart!).
    Second Place to Leigh for the over aegyo.
    Third to Spudgy because hes just too cute, he doesn’t even have to try.
    Martina’s actually scared me a bit and Soozee seemed unprepared… they’ve been talking about this challenge for weeks you knew it was coming!

    From the blog, I usually read in Martina’s voice in my head (it’s easier cause I’m a girl) but then get confused every time I realize it’s actually Simon writing (cause I only figure it out halfway through).

  120. “SIMON OPPA WINS! OMG HIS WAS SO CUTE!” ^^ without making me wanna vomit ;)

    but also Leigh’s with that super-aegyo-bomb, and Martina with the hardcore version, and Spudgy just being Spudgy… omg it’s so hard to just vote for one D:

  122. I have to vote for Simon x3 sowwe guies you all were awesome

  123. LEIGH UNNI~ CUTEST~~~~~ *w*


  125. It’s really hard to choose but I will vote for Martina ^^ I didn’t expect that and it was sooooo hilarious that my vote is for her :D But the rest was really funny too and I would say that Leigh was the best at acting aegyo from all of you, but Martina wins, because it was really funny :D LMAO <3 Love you guys <3

  126. Okay. Spudgy all the way ~ But if I had to choose a human it’d probably be Martina >.< Gwiyomi Rock Remix lmfao

    Simon your aegyo gwiyomi was worthy of Seungrina ^^ I approve~

  127. Spudgy totally won that gyiyomi contest! Totally love the road trip!! Moar pwease! Next time you guys go, that is :) Hope to see more traveling/road trips!


  129. MARTINAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! Totally original 1000000000000 thumbs up ^^ <3
    I have to say that Spudgy is a close second for me c:hehe

  133. Spudgy was the cutest! …wait can I even vote for the dog?

  134. Sandra Darling

    Spudgy!!!!!!! He was the cutest!!!!!!!

  135. Nicole Dennis

    I think Spudgy beat everyone. But everyone’s gwiyomi had their own charm that made me love it. I think I’m going to have to say… “SIMON WINS! OMG HIS WAS SO CUTE!” :D


  137. haha spudy wins the rest of yall kind of creep-ed me out!

  138. Everyone wins!

    Soozee’s awkward gwiyomi, Simon’s manly gwiyomi, Martina’s hardcore gwiyomi, and Leigh’s overaegyo’d gwiyomi…and let’s not forget Spudgy…

    I take it back. Spudgy’s was the best.

  139. I feel bad for Simon. He’s the only guy in the EYK crew!! xD If a guy joined in, I think it’d be awesome :P
    SPUDGY WINS THE GWIYOMI CHALLENGE! Second runner up: Simon!! :D

    • I totally read that as “I feel bad for Spudgy. He’s the only guy in the EYK crew!”…sorry Simon you are to girly to count as a guy xD

    I pity Spudgy, it must be hard being so fluffy when it’s hot outside…

  155. Leigh wins :D

  156. Sorry guys- Spudgy wins this; he’s just too cute! <3 May I kidnap your dog? Jk- if I ask for permission, it wouldn't be a kidnapping. XD
