Hey guise!

Ok, so we haven’t done these livechats in a very long time, and we feel terrible for it, but we think we’re definitely gonna try harder to get into the habit of doing these more! The old website that we used had difficulties handling everyone’s overwhelming NASTINESS, but now that we used YouTube it seemed to handle you all a lot better. Woohoo!

We’re hoping that when we’re in our studio, we can do these at least once a week and be able to talk with you all more directly. We really missed that the most about livechats. You see our videos when they’re all edited and planned out, but being able to just sit down, not worry about what we’re saying, and just kick it with you guise is so fun! So much less to worry about!

Inside info: we’ve actually planned out our studio to have a special place for us to be able to conduct these livechats. We’re setting things up in the ceiling, planning seating and all, so we can actually do these more. No joke! We’re serious here :D Hopefully we can get better at doing these live chats as well, and get more comfortable and less stammery. Also, we were looking all over the place at one computer for the streaming, another computer for the comments, the iPad for the Tweets. It was all over the place! Maybe we just need a bigger screen? I don’t know. I’m rambling again!

Otherwise, one of the things we love most about these livechats is just that we feel so much more energized after doing them. This wasn’t the best week for us, and we felt really mopey today, but after doing this and chatting with you all we feel so bubbly now. Is that cheesy? I don’t know.

Anyhow, let us know what you think. What should we add to the live chats, what should we take away. Any requests? We feel like an hour might be too long. AN HOUR! Who can watch something for an hour? I’m worried you might get bored if we talk too much. Thoughts?

  1. When you have your studio up and running you should show us a calendar of what your planning for the month. Then you can leave days open for us Nasties to visit the studio, this way we don’t bother your work and still get to see you when we are in Korea!! It could also tell us when your planning Live chats cuz i missed yours by minutes :( i was sooo sad.

  4. I’m not sure if they still make them, but when I was a kid (I’m from the US) we had something similar to kinder eggs, I think they were called wonder balls or something like that. They had like candies or toys or stickers inside of a hollow chocolate ball

  6. *facepalms* yay big brother.. -.- i want to check out those kindereggs too. I’m sure my kids would look at me stupid if i told them ‘ok kids, don’t eat these, you might choke’ I’d probably also get at least one “duh” out of them. lol

  7. I watched this for an hour and was entertained the whole time. Continue with the hour long chats. I love them! The ones before always seemed too short. :D I want to definitely put together a package for you guys too. :D I always feel better after watching you guys. It really makes my day. I hope that someday, I’ll be able to catch your live stream. Always working or at school. T.T I love you guys! :D

  8. What?! You guys don’t have kinder eggs? O_o That’s makes me sad panda for you and I’d totally get you some for christmas if I could.

  9. Whenever you guys do these livechats (other than always being asleep or at work/school) I feel like they’re always too short! An hour or a bit longer seems about right!

  10. Do you think you could maybe write a list of all the people who you’ve received letters and gifts from somewhere on the website, maybe after you do an opening. That way people could quickly see if their stuff arrived safely ^^

  11. thank you for doing this! it was wonderful! and the only problem i had was the sound was off… by a little… like 5sec maybe? happy xmas! :)

  12. I am really glad you guys were able to bring live chats back- I have always enjoyed watching them. And it’s like you got Christmas a day early with all those packages! I want to respond to your comment about SNSD’s new single “Dancing Queen”- it was actually filmed/recorded in 2008 before SNSD filmed/recorded “Gee”. It was suppose to be their comeback then, but then something happened and “Gee” replaced it. So what SME did was just release an old video as a teaser to their comeback in January (like EXO’s “History”), which can be seen in the first and last few minutes of the video when they “time travel”. Now, personally I agree with you Martina, “Dancing Queen” doesn’t match their current image very well, but I do understand that it’s a gift for older SONEs who were around when “Gee” and “Oh!” were released.

  16. I imagine that blocking the ads would not be a good idea, since S&M get paid because of those ads.

  24. Dear Simon and Martina (:
    Hello! First of all, hi from Singapore! I really enjoyed this live chat session, though I wasn’t able to catch it live! I also have a little suggestion for the Eatyourkimchi studio, which could hopefully be achieved! I think it would be very nice if Nasties could visit the studio when they go to Korea, much like the CUBE cafe by CUBEentertainment!
    Anyhoo, thank you guys so much for always making us Nasties feel sooo loved and appreciated, I think Nasties are the most spoilt fandom ever! oops, i meant, EVAR!
    much love and support from Singapore! [:

  29. I love that the Floridians both sent you Spanish coffee. There are little Latin grandmas the world over who have one or the other (maybe both) of those containers in the kitchen. You can make some legit cafe con leche. FYI, Bustelo and Pilon are both espresso. Keep that in mind when you make it.

  30. Too long? More like too short… But I’m also someone who enjoys listening to 4 hour podcasts so maybe I don’t speak for everyone. Also, I think doing it at this time is close to perfect for most people, only sucks for people in like Hawaii and they live in freaking Hawaii so they should be satisfied with that dammit! :P

  31. it didn’t feel like an hour at all! probably because I haven’t seen you guys go live for so long xD

    4 years ago
  32. Well, even though I just stayed quiet, I had fun watching! Thanks, S & M~ :D An hour passed by too quickly, but it’ll work for us; it’s fine. It would be hard on you guys if you do any longer, especially since you do it so late at night. I did have problems with the occasional lag, but nothing major, it’s on my end, after all. Must be nice to have such fast internet D’: /jealous.

    So excited for your studio! :D I wish to see it soon.

    Merry Christmas! :D

  33. Honestly, you could have a 24/7 livestream, and I would completely put my life aside for it. I like the the hour long-ish ones better than the fifteen minute ones.

    One thing was that even though it wasn’t too laggy for me, it showed a commercial like every 5-10 minutes, and I would miss whatever happened for the length of the commercial! So I’m just re-watching it instead =.=

    • You can just install the AdBlock application for your browser, and all those annoying video commercials on YouTube would never disturb you again ;D

      4 years ago
      • Those annoying commercials are where all Youtubers get their money from, other than selling merch. It’s also what keeps youtube free and accessible to everyone.

        4 years ago
    • adds help pay for Simon and Martina to do EYK full time. so if everyone blocked them, it would be financially bad for EYK. this was basically a test run for them on youtube :) give them some time to iron out the kinks for next time, before you do the whole addblock thing.

      4 years ago
      • never use adblock for their videos or website, but for the LIVE CHATS i will because those commercials really took away from the viewing experience

        4 years ago
        • well i was able to be there for their most recent Live chat, the one where they showed the new studio, and there was only 1 commercial at the very beginning. :) so i think they’ve ironed out the kinks.

    • Oh! That’s odd. I’m sorry that happened. We’ll look into that more!

    • with what browser did you watch it? google chrome? opera?

      4 years ago
      • Me too. Hmm how awkward. Maybe I didn’t face that issue due to my proxtube plugin. (See my other comments for explanation ^^).

        The livestream wasn’t blocked in your country?

  37. Ooh the livechat was awesome, and one hour is awesome too :D I can watch you guys for hours :D

    The only odd thing about the Youtube livestream was, that I needed proxtube to unblock it because Youtube Germany blocks those (Video not available in your country). Unblocking it with proxtube enables me to watch it but I cannot comment on YT :( Awkward!)

    Oh well :D Looking forward to more live chats :D Merry Christmas!

  38. anyway to stop the commercials?

    4 years ago
    • What commercials?

      4 years ago
      • there were commercials appearing during your live stream. I didn’t keep count as to how often but I would say there were at least 8-10 commercials during. Not pop ups but actual commercials. Your stream would stop then there would be a 15 second commercial and then it would buffer again and you would come back.

        4 years ago
      • Btw did you guise read my comments about following me on twitter o and still listening to t-ara and Areum’s rap is on

        4 years ago
    • try watching it with google chrome and proxtube – I didn’t face any commercials during the live chat at all.
      Are there commercials on livechats normally on youtube?
      I never experienced that (Germany blocks livechats o_O I am forced to use proxtube to watch the eyk livechats…)

      4 years ago
      • I don’t use google chrome. If there will be commercials during the live chat again then I will just wait and watch the video afterwards since I will be missing part of the video anyway and will have to watch it again to catch up.

  40. I didn’t mind the hour — I wish you had been able to open and see everything in the boxes. But weekly, an hour would probably be too long, haha.
