*Trumpet Sound* BRR BRRR BR BRRRR! Introducing, the Eatyourkimchi Team Building Road Trip!

We’ve shot so many WANKs and FAPFAPs locally, but Korea offers a lot more than just Seoul and Bucheon. It’s about time we stepped out of our comfort zones and Wonderfully Adventured around Korea! This marks our first team road trip, and – guise – let us stress to you just how totally stoked we are about this video. We’re unsure if you’re gonna like it as much as we liked it, but we had so much freaking fun doing this all that we kinda want to make a regular show out of trips like this. We’d like to go out for a weekend, film a boatload of footage, and edit and air that over the course of a month. It can be like our own 1-Night-2-Days kinda show. Thoughts?

We filmed SOOOO much footage, though, and can’t put it all in one video. That’d make for far too long of a video. We chopped up Day 1 into two different videos, embedded in a playlist above. If you can’t view playlists, here’s part 2 of the video:

 

Our footage of Day 2 will be UNLEASHED next week. Unleashed, you hear? It’s like a Kpop video. Little did you know that YouTube keeps videos on leashes. It is our duty as YouTubers to take the leash off of those videos, and for Kpop news sites to report on them with ridiculous titles.

The area we went to is Gapyeong. It’s close to Nami Island – famous for Winter Sonata – and Chuncheon, the birthplace of Dak Galbi supposedly, and also famous for Makguksu, which we LURRRRRV. We stayed at the Four Seasons, and I HIGHLY doubt it has any connection to the actual Four Seasons franchise. Is it just a freak coincidence that the pension has that name, or were the pension owners like “Yeah! Four Seasons sounds like a great name. Let’s use that as well!” I know Korea likes to advertise its four distinct seasons – which – by the way, is malarky. Spring lasts two weeks. That’s not a season!

The Four Seasons pension was totally packed. Not a single room sat unused. We didn’t have the biggest of the rooms, but we didn’t have many options, either. Pension season is coming up, supposedly, and the cost of pensions go up in July. Our first day there, after we unpacked all of our gear and collapsed into Eatyourkimchi heaps, we tried booking another day, just so we could relax a bit, but everything was already booked. Balls! So we had to wake up at, like, 9AM to make breakfast and get ready for our 12PM checkout. GROSS! That’s what, like, normal people do! We usually go to sleep at 4 or 5AM and sleep in until past 12. Adjusting to normal people hours scares us.

Not all rooms were equal, either. Some of the rooms are smaller, just for couples. Some were bigger than that, like ours, meant for double dating. Beside us was a giant room, meant for larger groups of people, like schools or bigger companies. They had their own big outdoor grill and giant table which overlooked the scenery. Our grill was upstairs and in the corner by the cornfields. Not as pretty as the bigger group, but we were still happy to be out of the city and closer to nature, in a way. Our room also didn’t have a noraebang, which we’ll be sure to get for our next pension trip – if you like these videos, that is!

We thought for a bit about how the grass is always greener. Our studio’s right in Hongdae. We’re surrounded by buildings and stores and restaurants and clubs and schools and people and cars and tiny parking lots and crawling cars. Out in the countryside, we heard frogs screaming out “I JUST HAD SEX” in the middle of the night. The skies were so dark and unlit that we could barely see each other. We sat by the balcony and shared a bowl of cherries, then tried to see who could spit their pits out the farthest. We couldn’t see where they landed: we’d spit the pits and try to hear how far away they clicked on the road. That, for some of us, felt like what we wanted to do forever, surrounded by mountains and trees and water and barely any people.

For people living there, though, the trees and the hills are not as charming. The bustling energy of the city is far more interesting. I’m sure we’d feel the same way if we lived in the countryside for a while. We’re all meant to yearn for something different. We know some people are watching our videos and wishing they could live somewhere else, because where they are is so boring, and some will move here or elsewhere and enjoy the difference for a while. But then they’ll learn to miss their homes. We miss Canada. We miss Bucheon. We miss the Four Seasons. And if we ever live in another country, we’ll miss Korea. Ok I’ma stop being existential now. There’s just something jarring about the serenity outside of cities. Or it could be the fact that Monsoon Season has started now, and writing blog posts in gloomy and dark and rainy days changes the things you feel like writing about. I’m sure if it was sunny today I’d be like “SPUDGY WAS SO CUTE AND FUN ARRRGGGHHH”

Anyhow, that’s it for this week. Day 2 comes out next week. If you’re interested, we have a small teaser for it here as well:

 

Cool! Teasers for future episodes! That’s, like, so professional and TV-like, no? Well, if you’d rather see us be more un-professional, you can check out this week’s Blooper reel here below.

  1. Every time I revisit this video and see Spudgy….there are some lyrics that run through my head “I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it! I’m about to lose control and I think I like it!” oh boy.

  2. Chu Jun-Sik

    JJapagetti is not black bean flavor. It’s black bean sauce flavor.
    Black bean sauce is chinese traditional sauce. It’s a type of fermented and salted soy bean.

  3. Senbazuru42

    Awesome videos! Yes, please do more adventures like these. :D

    Hello guise! :)

    “We’d like to go out for a weekend, film a boatload of footage, and edit and air that over the course of a month. It can be like our own 1-Night-2-Days kinda show. Thoughts?” Yes!!

    “We sat by the balcony and shared a bowl of cherries, then tried to see who could spit their pits out the farthest.” Uhm… don’t do that guise…. the birds could pick them up eat them and choke T_T

    The 4 things that ‘introduced’ me to Korea; Boys Over Flowers, 1Night2Days, Glen Check, EatYourKimchi…. so yes, please do more road trip style videos!!!!
    ps. literally jumped outta bed when I heard Racket…
    Is there anything better than being pleasantly surprised by unexpectedly hearing songs from your favorite band? ^_^

  7. Meribeth Carlos

    6:59 Simon say “I fell a class” he didn’t speak in 3rd person and nobody notice

  8. Freddie Engberg

    I’d LOVE to see more videos like this, it was really fun! It’s fun to see the whole EYK Crew too :D

  9. Ansa Prothasis

    creepy small door my thgought alice in wonderland

  10. Chantel Sanchez

    I enjoyed this soooo much! I loved watching you guys have fun! Makes me wish I was there! :)

  11. I really enjoyed these road trip videos; they are fun, interesting, and funny. I look forward to your regularly scheduled videos like but I would definitely watch more videos like this. Even monthly or even season-type(?) videos would be really fun! Keep up the good work!

  12. AudreyKoopman

    Pausing the video to say:
    “Lazy cause I’m so crazy”
    Ahahaha, when Kyung said that I died. I love that you remembered it and ended up using it here. That’s so cool.

    Ok, on with the rest of the vid!

  13. WoonCloud

    By the way, not exactly on-topic, but did you ever get to go to Yeosu Expo?

  14. Ohhhh my.

    I LOVE the new shirts. Next time you order, you should totally get the shirts with white backgrounds in a baseball tee cut. Soooo cute on girls and guys ;D

  15. Esther Lee

    I don’t really think I’ve noticed this before, but your weight-loss and working out has DEFINITELY paid off :D good job, guys!! (now I need to be more like you… =,=””) hehe ^^

  16. GAH! I got so excited when I heard Racket :D Glen Check are really cool and their songs are awesome!
    Anyways, this video and this WANK edition was so different from the usual ones, but just as fun to watch :3

  17. Mc Chan

    OMO This place looks perfect!!! Take me with you next time you go on a roadtrip guise!!!! T.T (I wish lol)

  18. Can you do a video on how Korean people react when foreigners date a Korean person. I’m not sure if you’ve done this but I’m really interest to find the answer

  19. I have a question, what do you call those bugs that were on the window? I am from Ohio, and we call them mayflies. My boyfriend is from Michigan, and they call them fish flies. SETTLE THE SCORE!! (or add another option)

    • They are may flies but I grew up in Windsor and we always called them june bugs (which are actually a beetle and a different species entirely!) To this day I still call them june bugs but *know* they’re really may flies. The swarms we get back home at my parents place are TERRIFYINNNGGG!!!

  20. Yay… yes please more videos like this! I could tell you guys had so much fun, great video! ^^

  21. neoncrucifixion

    OMG, I didn’t notice Spudgy’s lipstick until after the livechat!! EWW!! LOL. I’ve only had girl-dogs, so…eek!!

  22. Hi guys! Just wanted to say thanks. I was watching your vids to relax during the final phase of the devilish thesis writting process and they prevented me from going totally nuts. You are doing a great work! Trust me I`m an engineer. ;oD

  23. Roxanne Garcia

    Here’s simon and here’s the window…
    Simon: *pouts* SO I can’t make sexes??
    If that is what he really said, that is hilarious Simon XDDDD

  24. I think it’s a great idea to travel around Korea more and this video was a lot of fun to watch! :D But, for the future if you start making more of these, can you go to different sights etc. and not just stay at the pension? Of course, your time is limited but I think that would be great :) You probably have more of that in your Day 2 video if you’re visiting the Nami Island and all but I thought I’d still bring it up :)

    Anyway, great vid guise! I’m starting to like SooZee and Leigh more and more :D

  25. Rogier Stam

    I somehow thought that Leigh would be the youngest, how old is the entire crew actually?

  26. I’m pretty sure Simon broke a lot more rules than he got called on!

  27. EmSewCrazy

    So fun! Very nice to see different parts of Korea. I was feeling bad for Simon being the only guy on the roadtrip then when he got the man slave card it was icing on the cake! Are you sure that wasn’t rigged? Hehe. Very funny though. I vote next addition to the EYK crew should be a guy so Simon has some man support!

  28. I love the idea of an EYK variety show! XD
    This was really fun to watch and I look forward to seeing more.
    As a side note, I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who watches variety shows like Running Man and thinks, “If only I could be on a show like that. DDDD:”

  29. Natalia Forty

    좋아! I would love to see more videos of trips.

  30. Emily

    How terrifying was it driving in Korea??

  31. Olivia Figoli

    Where’s your blue bowsie, Simon?

  32. Awesome. It was so much fun to watch. I would love to see your road trips more often. The best WANK ever. More of it! More of it! ☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆

  33. Gracie グレイス

    I’ve watched this twice today. Guys, this is one of your best WANKs EVAR! Question: Have you ever thought of bringing the WANK dice back? I miss that dice

  34. JohnJackson

    I love your videos guys. Just one thing – Simon what’s with chewing with your mouth open? I see it during every FAPFAP and WANK with food involved. Am I the only one who notices this? I like sea food, but see food is a different story =)

  35. Is this why there is no KMM this week?

  36. Diana Cristina Munteanu

    yay :D road trip :D
    you guys can definitely do this more often :D more suzy and leigh yay :D

    but why is only martina driving???

  37. Gracie グレイス

    Awesome video guys. Reminds me of a variety show :DD

  38. Gracie グレイス

    Love SooZee’s earrings :)

  39. honeybee98

    Could you guys please tell me where is the pension,I live in korea and i had a boring summer vacation so I wanted asked my mom if we could go there :)

  40. NaToTheWak

    I loved the soundtrack for this video! Racket is my favorite Glen Check, and I can’t wait for “Who’s that dog” on the next EYK greatest hits CD!

    That drinking game sounds funny but I couldn’t really understand the questions… That’s actually the reason why I didn’t watch the drinking game WANK, drunk people speaking a foreign language are difficult to understand if you’re not drunk yourself. I’ll wait for the subs!
