Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce to you the newest member of the Eatyourkimchi Team: THE EATYOURKIMCHI MOBILE!
We’ve been working on this project for quite some time now, and we’re finally ready to share it with you! But first, some context, in case you’re confused:
Last year, you might remember, Kia let us borrow their Soul to finally break our Coffee Prince curse. It was great! We had a lot of fun shooting it, and it seems like you guise had fun with the video as well. You tweeted at Kia to let them know, and so Kia agreed to make this more of a long-term thing. Great success! Thank you guise for being so awesome :D
And this all comes with perfect timing! Summer is hot around the corner, and there’s so much fun stuff to do outside of Seoul. However, since we have so much camera, audio, and lighting gear to drag around, it’s really difficult to shoot that far away from the studio. With the Eatyourkimchi Mobile, though, the possibilities in South Korea are pretty much limitless for us now. There are so many more places we want to visit. Busan! Daegu! Cottages and Beaches! The countryside. Just…just so much more! If there’s anywhere you want us to visit, let us know. We’re totally open for suggestions. We only know Seoul, and would love to experience a lot more outside of it.2
In fact, we’re writing this blog post right now as we’re in GD’s Pension. That video will come out next week. It’s looking good so far, though :D Hope you’ll like it as much as we’re liking it here!
Anyhow, if you’re in Seoul and you see us driving, Roll Down Your Sexy Windows at us! Or, if you take any pictures of it, tweet it at us with the hashtag #EYKSOUL. We’d love to see it in action. It’s kinda difficult seeing what it looks like in public because we’re in it as we’re driving, so show us!
We do have some pictures, though, including the mockup if you like pretty pictures. Yay!
Oh, and in case you were wondering, we didn’t design this ourselves. I wish we had that kinda talent! The design was done by a design team. The pictures of us on the windows, though, you might have noticed in some of our videos and on our website as well. Those were done by Maud Beurskens. She’s awesome. You can check out her Facebook page here as well, if you’re interested :D
Also, if you feel like it, send Kia a tweet telling them this is awesome :D They listened to you before. They’ll listen to you again :D
If you’re up for some more footage of us joking around with the car, we’ve got a few bloopers that didn’t make the final cut. Check em out. No Hong Chul, WHUTCHU GOT, SUCKA?!
And lastly, if you don’t want to miss out on our GD Pension video we’re posting next week, or any more of the awesome adventure videos we’re gonna be going on, make sure you click on this fancy pants button below right here. Yay!
