Fan Mail Package EXPLODOMANIA!

HOLY CRAP DID YOU GUISE EVER SEND US A LOT OF STUFF!

Really, thank you for this all. Christmas in Korea can be kind of lonesome, not being with our families at home, and it being more difficult to partake in Christmas traditions, so these packages and letters are really, really appreciated. So we decided to record the gift opening process, similar to our WTF Foreign Candy Episode, and catch our reactions to some of the stuff.

Let me say this: POLAND REPRESENT! OH MAN! It was so great to receive so much Polish stuff. This is Simon here writing, by the way. You know, when we visited Canada back in October, we spent a lot of time at the Polish supermarket, Starsky, taking in as much as possible. Korea might have a Polish community somewhere, but we’ve never seen it, so getting our hands on Polish soup and candy is almost impossible. Thank you so much!

Now let me say this – Martina writing here – let me just say thank you for being not only so generous, but also so thoughtful. Not only did you send us awesome stuff, but you also sent us great explanations of it all, with lots of “I thought of you when…” messages. Seriously guise. This is so great. Thank you.

Foreign Packages

Foreign Packages of awesomeness

Lastly, we want to apologize to the last batch of fantail that we had taken pictures of, but had lost the pictures to. We’ve been enjoying the stash, especially the Hagel Slag, the Russian Candies, and the Sour Cream and Onion crisps from Israel. We feel terrible for having lost all of the pictures. Really sorry. We’ve taken a picture of all that remains, which isn’t really much, since we’ve been eating lots of it. NOM NOM NOM! The Hagel Slag is especially…special. It’s delicious: we’re just not sure how it’s properly eaten. Just…chocolate sprinkles? Put on toast? Is that how it’s done? Any advice would be appreciated.

Again, thanks everyone. YOU’RE THE BEST!

  1. I have to agree that it’s SO FUN to watch these videos of fanmail! ;0; Sometimes you send things to idols and you never know if they got it, if they were excited, if they GOT it, you know? It’s SO GREAT to see these videos, and it’s a lot of fun seeing what other people send. I don’t think it’s tooting your own horn in any way, nor is it saying, “TO BE A GOOD FAN YOU MUST SEND US RANCH~!!!!” because that’s NEVER the vibe I have gotten. In fact, I like to rewatch these videos around the year; it just makes me happy! And it makes me think about kind things I can do for others, and MAYBE it makes me think a bit more about sending you guys some stuff, but ONLY because it looks like you appreciate it SO MUCH and really, that is awesome. :D

    And the chance to see your reactions. ^_^

  3. Hagelslag needs to be put on a sandwich. So a piece of bread and butter helps a lot it will keep the hagelslag on it but toast is also good to go.

  4. It’s so much fun to watch you two get awesome packages!

    I was wondering though, how do you get them? Like do you have to get them at the nearest post office, are they left outside your door? I’m curious because the mail boxes are obviously too small. I’m also moving to Gimhae in March and would like to have people send me things.

  5. You Simon said “lunsj” quite well the first time, actually. It means “lunch” and is said almost the same way, only with a more Norwegian accent:P

  6. Martina you do have polish fans. I’ve seen so much videos made by you guys that and had a so much good time watching it, that if we’d ever meet i would treat you as my good friends. When ever you mention dothraki man warrior i laugh so much so keep it up. You guys make so much good for people like me, interested in korean culture so i can’t find words good enough to express my grattitude. Saranghae from Poland :)

  11. Dirtpoorchic is the best! Hahaha. So glad that you guys got beef jerky. I hope the korean customs won’t watch this or else… NO! I will surely send a package for you guise soon!

  12. We have had lots of Korean jerky but haven’t had any that really do it for us. Maybe we’ve tried the wrong kinds?

  13. I have to got to stop watching these so late at night, now I have cravings for beef jerky and cake. xD

    I wish I could go to Walmart and get some beef jerky and cake, cause Walmart’s the only place open at this time of night because its open 24/7. But they’ve got decent cake there. And they sell the nummy beef jerky which I should get some and find a creative way to sneak it to you through customs.

  14. Wait a minute… somebody sent you hagel slag? That’s one of the foods of my childhood! Little tiny candied bits, right? Put them on a sandwich with peanut butter, or just toast with melted butter.

  15. I bet the Korean customs officials are enjoying all the stuff that didn’t make it through to you guise… like VEGEMITE!!!

  16. Hagelslag is typical Dutch, we usually put it on buttered bread but you can also use it to decorate ice cream and stuff :]

  17. I loved watching you open the gifts….your excitement makes it super fun. (makes me remember when Mom used to send *care packages* to summer camp….RedVines licorice, how I love thee still ~ ♥)

    I had thought of sending you guise some Tex-Mex goodies…like, restaurant-style torilla chips and hot sauce…but then I remembered you are Canadian and thus might not have a taste for it. I couldn’t help but think of you when my local grocery had Ranch dressing (powder packets) on sale by the bulk-load….but hestitated because you would have to mix it yourself. (do you use the powder style…or is that a no-go?) Anyway…enjoyed the vid. :)

    • I think that it is rewarding for people who send you gifts, For me the best thing when giving a gift is to see hapiness on ones face. And for others i still think it’s fun to watch

  20. That coconut date bar that looked like a turd is actually called “dodol”. More or less 
    made with coconut milk, jaggery, and rice flour. It normally takes up to 9 hours to cook dodol. During the entire cooking process, the dodol must be constantly stirred in a big wok. hard work! didn’t send it tho but it’s a nice toffee-like thing

  21. YOU GUISE! YOUR KVIKK LUNSJ (quick lunsshshhshshs (its easy to translate! kvikk = quick, lunsj = lunch! pronounced the same)) MADE  ME CRACK UP SO HARD! I am actually norwegian myself:D and a big fangirl of yours..(I watch you in your sleep). and that pronunciation was HILARIOUS!

  30. Just gotta ask and I’m sure it’s been asked before but how do you pay for your living and expenses? Are you sponsored?

    I mean you have no commercial on the site and you only make videos for your fans and no company?

    I bet all the fanimail you receive could feed you for the whole year ;)
