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. ame los gorritos. hahahah

  2. I think one hour is alright… before you had half an hour and that was too little…

    P.S:the video had occasional lag but you can watch it all without missing parts.


  3. You guise made me feel so guilty! XD Im up at 1 am watching your video! hahaha I should go to sleep now xD – Btw, you banter is never boring, you guys are the most entertaining vloggers on earth! <3

  4. still freaking out that simon let meemers lick his hand and then used the same hand to eat candy with and didn’t wash it ;_;
    BUT AN HOUR IS DEFINITELY NOT TOO LONG, these are great!!!

  5. you guys are the best!
    i want to give a present to you too ;-; from brazil!

  6. when are you guys gonna have a live stream again? :3

  7. I thought the hour would be too long, but honestly I loved it! I didn’t get bored at all and I hope you guys do hour long chats every once in awhile. Merry Christmas/Happy New Year!

  8. I love kinder toys!!!! They do have them in America. I get them at the butcher.

  9. “1:30 am, at night” lol

  10. hapagirl

    I’m so use to my friends doing super long streams where they play video games or draw for hours. Gosh, I’ve been to a 24 hour stream that in the end I was grumpy and tired. And I’ll agree with what Stephanie said, you guys do get distracted and you also spend time talking with us that I appreciate.

  11. Naima

    Hi Simon and Martina! I am from Sweden and when you was reading from the Bamse magazine, i could not stop lauging…! xD i could only understand some words you said.. :D and the word renkött is pronounced like “renchott” :)

  12. I’m always sad when the video ends. Definitely not too long.

  13. Hey guys lovin what you do! Happy Holidays to and your families. I was curious if anyone had any issues with the videos not working after they are put up,.. seem to just get a blank screen for a day or 2.Might be our side but other things seem to work fine.
    anyways keep bringin the fapfap’s and other great things, congrats again on the studio. <(**<)

  14. I much prefer the longer livestreams to shorter ones. Plus, you guys are so distracty that if you did one for only 20 minutes, not enough would be accomplished and I would be left unsatisfied. =P

    Hahahah, I’m sorry, that sounded so weird…

  15. Arli.

    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.

  16. I love you guys! seriously, I’m not new to eatyourkimchi… I just watch you episodeZ on youtube and never leave a comment. There are 2 reasons why: 1. I got a seriously freakishly long exam or quizzeS for the next day since I’m a college student major in hardgoodlordwhatthehellisthisIdidn’treadthissubpartofmanypartsofScience (seriously, premed isn’t pretty) or I’m just amazed with all the videos that I started clicking and forgot to click like or comment. you two are stress breakers… I laugh so hard that I cried many times(literally)! esp. when you feature t.o.p (esp in monster) though I love GD(I envy his beauty even though he’s a guy). Thank you guys! keep up the good work! kisses for Spudgy & Dr. Memeesworth!

  17. Hi ^^ Super Nasty here.

    I hope one of these livestreams can be suitable to all of the time zones. Some of your streams were way too early for me so I couldn’t join. Also, can you try to put them on a weekend? >~< It's safe to say that most of us are busy on weekends.

  18. I’ve watched live blogs for hours at a time and have still been sad when the blogger decided to leave!! Normal videos an hour is a bit long, but with a live chat you get the chance to interact and jump through a huge variety of subjects and create inside jokes. Just stay as long as you feel comfortable live, and we’ll stay and interact as long as you stay!

  19. Reindeer is really good! My brother used to work at a hotel as a chef, where they every december had a huge Christmas dinner you could attend to. Went there with my family and had the chance to try out reindeer tongue. We didnt know what it was, just told to try it! It tasted really good! Im kind a of a coward when it comes to taste new things (to bad, trying to be better) but that was really great! Do you have anything “the most strange thing you ever tasted” so far!?

    Really love your Eatyourkimchi – programs, sites – dont know how many times I laugh/smiles at everything you do, while Im on the trams to and from work! :) Keep up the great work!! Fighting!! :D

  20. I’m not sure if you guys have already answered this, but when will you open the last two packages that you couldn’t get to?
    Did you just open them off camera? Will you save them until the next live-chat/[or]fanmail video?

  21. Simon = mega loud (lol) Martina nostrils = HOT (gif-ing now) OH! And can’t wait to see the STU-STU-STUDIO

  22. I think the thing about GG’s video is that it was supposed to be a flashback. They made it look like their old hairstyles and everything, but I think it was filmed now?

  23. This was hilarious!!
    I love you guys. An hour is definitely not too long as long as it’s not too long for you guys!!! ^_^

  24. i always miss these… T.T

  25. kawaii_candie

    i would not get bored if they all were an hour!! you guys are so much fun to watch ^^

    and watching you open all the presents felt like you guys were two little kids at christmas, eheh… I’m kinda jealous!

    Happy Holidays guise!

  26. An hour of you guys just rambling is totally fine, seriously. I even freaked out every time it lagged or an ad popped up because I would miss out on whatever you guys are talking about.

    My concern is just the timing you’ll be having these livestreams. I think the weekends are the best since I don’t think a lot of people (especially those who are still in school) would mind if they had to stay up just to catch the livestream rather than have it on a weekday where a lot of people are either sleeping in, at school or work. That’s just my opinion though, but if you guys end up having it on like Tuesday mornings, I’d probably still stay up, school or not.

  27. SIMON GOES BALABALA :D I really loved to watch you guiise, I am from germany so it was cool to see all the german stuff you got :)

  28. Martina, you distinctly said in the Replay KMM that Key was your bias. I remember this. You described taemin as “jàilbait” haha, what changed your opinion?

  29. i love these hour long chats. please do moarrrrrr :D that or do more short ones more often! CANT GET ENOUGH OF Y’ALL

  30. 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

  31. ok im a few days late on this but EH…. any way i had the ad problem like gwennie did. then at one point it totally froze form me and i left. one of these days we need to find a time where everyone can watch! lol stupid time zones! :P

  32. Hi ~ I’m a fan of you, and I would like ton know if I can ask you a question… Yes ? Anyways, that’s it : (sorry for my awful English, I’m French >_< ) I'm actually 16years old, and I want to travel, and to learn Korean. I've heard about faculties in South Korea that teach Korean to foreign students. is that true ? And if yes, do you know some things about it ? Can you answer me please ? Thanks by (?) advance, and really, a HUGE thank you for making me laugh every monday x)

    Totally loved Eric Carle books when I was little too. Proof the Very Hungry Caterpillar exists! http://www.barnesandnoble.com/p/very-hungry-caterpillar-eric-carle/1100472822

  34. Love you guise. Trust me, it was NOT too long to sit through. And I have ADHD. I was totally hooked the WHOLE time. Thanks S&M! Do this every week!

  35. I was super upset when I realized that I was going to be working this morning at six am and would miss your show. Anyway, I don’t know if this changes anything but I’ve noticed a lot of youtubers using google hangout for their live shows. That might work differently than the youtube one unless it’s the same thing.

  36. I definitely wasn’t bored. An hour seems reasonable to me. ^^

  37. it’s a stuff animal the canned kangaroo lol i have one my uncle sent me one.

  38. Hungry Hungry Caterpillar!!!! I read that IDK how many times when I was kid and I’m from Miami. Lol

  39. An hour is perfect because it gives people a lot of time to come in late and and enjoy the fun. A fifteen minute stream wouldn’t really allot for any stragglers.
    Always fun to watch you guys. Merry almost Christmas! :)

  40. I think an hour is perfect since it give a lot of people more time to check in besides anything short of that isn’t enough. We love you guys so it’s great to have these precious moments with you even if it is only an hour. *sniffsniff*

  41. 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

  42. I’m with Gwennie! LOL but i think the live stream is better on YT. I can’t wait for your next live chat.

  43. I just want to say that I LOVE the live chats, even if I don’t get to be there. An hour wasn’t long at all. I love your banter and relationship dynamic (natch). I loved it when Martina ranted a little about the new SNSD video, because it’s really kind of like how I do so with my sister when we talk Kpop. I loved the random snatchings of Meemers and Spudgy (did I mention I really like furry, fluffy animals?). It’s kinda like watching my own reality TV show. It’s really like having a nice, long conversation with like-minded friends–who are in their jammies and eating junk food :)

  44. Now that was better than any stinkin’ reality TV show here in the states ANY DAY!!!! Is there a new address that we could send presents, s’il vous plait et merci?!?!

  45. 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!

  46. I was in Wamart in Florida, USA and they had a Hello Kitty Gingerbread House kit.

  47. I just wanted to say thanks for doing the live chat! Due to my time zone, I got to watch it at 8AM which was a super fantastically nasty way to start the day! :D

  48. The Australian stuff makes me happy ^u^

  49. Martina, you said “Waffur” :D :D *dies laughing* You just made my day.

    I can’t make the live chats themselves because of the time, but I love being able to watch the whole thing later. One hour is definitely not too long. ^_^

  50. I’m Swedish. I loved Bamse when I was a kid, but I have NO idea what the frick you are saying! :P Thanks for trying though ^^

  51. An hour would DEFINITELY not be too long. I get really ADD and ADHD after sitting in a chair for a while, but I remember one fanchat that I sat through and didn’t even notice the time until you said, “Well, it’s already been a half an hour… We better go!” I sat through 30 MINUTES!! Trust me, that’s impressive xD I could watch you for hours, It’s an amazing idea!!

    • And now since I’ve actually finished it (chores :P ) IT WAS AMAZING!!! IF IT’S ONLY 15 MINUTES I WILL DIE! Just as a warning if you get a letter in the mail saying that one of your fans died from depression of your small fanchat… So, IF YOU DON’T WANNA GUILTY CONSCIENCE, HAVE LONG, ENGAGING FANCHATS!!! JK, guise! I don’t wanna sound like a jerk. But it was A- MAY-ZING!
      Crazy Nasty Fangirl

  52. Your swedish sounds like russian or something to me^^ hilarious! I just watched your one hour clip (clip isn’t really the correct word as it describes something short but anywho…).I missed your live chat as I was decorating our christmas tree, yeay christmas!! When I saw that it was one hour long I thought I’m not going to be able to watch it all in one go, turns out I was wrong, watched all of it and am really glad I did or I would have missed the swedish package. It was awesome! Hjortron, or cloudberries, are often referred to as the gold of the north of Sweden and it’s sweet and delicious, yum. I’m actually going to eat it tomorrow together with a cake made of almonds and whipped cream as a dessert after all christmas-y food.
    Merry Christmas or as we say in Sweden, God Jul!

  53. That was an hour well spent….most definitely. ^^ I could watch a two hour one if y’all were up for making that long of a video! I’ll definitely be putting together a package for ya from here at the Space Coast, but not till after the holidays once my relatives leave >.> Oh, and Martina, I love your hair…watched your video about dying your hair and I’m plannin on hittin up the local Hot Topic to get some of that dye and try it out ^^ HAPPY HOLIDAYS EYK!!!!!

  54. I couldn’t watch it live . Youtube said the video wasn’t available :( Is it because of my country again or was that just tough luck this time??

  55. Hi guys, not too long for me! I missed it live but really enjoyed watching the video. Can’t wait to see the new EYK studio!

    Happy Holidays! ^^

  56. That was the longest video of yours I’ve ever watched and I wasn’t bored :) I hope next time I’ll be able to watch the livechat live. And I guess it’s the last video before Christmas so best wishes for you and your families! Wesołych Świąt!

  57. Applesauce 21

    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 ^^

  58. I feel like a loser for missing the chat. I had my alarm set to wake me up, but I kinda turned it off when it went off (not a morning person) So thank you very much for posting this on your site :P I promise to be awake for the next one!

  59. I just watched a 2+ hr live stream of Daniel and SanE on Gurupop the other night…an hour is a walk in the park ;) I would watch y’alls live stream for hours if you were up to being in front of the camera that long lol

  60. 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! :)

  61. 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.

  62. PunkyPrincess92

    hehe i loved this!!! an hour of glorious you guys!! haha!!
    when Simon went off camera to get the sombrero for the Doritos i thought he was going off to put on the Taemin wig!!

  63. the girls’ generation song and video were recorded in 2008
    it was probably gonna be a gee 2.0 but they never released it

  64. Honestly, I enjoyed that! An hour? Best. Hour. EVAR! Besides Asian Drama hour! WHOO! anywho, I loved it! Merry Christmas you two!

  65. ugh. I love you guys!

  66. i didn’t notice it was an hour until u guys sayd it

  67. I was too busy sleeping with my Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer pillow pet to watch Simon talk about eating Rudolph’s buddies. Changing the times would defiantly be really nice, because getting up at six in the morning to watch you two (no matter how amazing and funny you both are) seems a bit unpractical.

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

    • You can choose the websites you want to block ads on. I block them on youtube, but not on eatyourkimchi, and I always watch their videos from their eatyourkimchi website. Much less annoying! I don’t know if it’s possible to integrate the live chat in the blog, though.

  69. I loved it, you guys are so funny that wasnt tiring at all.
    I just think is better do a short video one day before and tell about the livechat, so nobody will lost…
    PS: i think the brazilian one was me!

  70. Now I definetely will send you a package too :) any special wishes from germany??
    and btw this video wasn’t too long it was amazing and funny :D

  71. wow lots of candy you got :P I already imagining a big bowl of candy in your office for the kpop interviews :D

  72. Greetings from POLAND~!

  73. aww i missed this :( but im glad there are plans for more livechats :D yay!!! and I think I would ever get bored of listening to you guys talk…O.o…LOL ooooo and happy holidays guys~!!! :) <3<3

  74. you gotta know the package is from germany when it’s yellow and says DHL xD and LOL Schnecken is not Snacks it’s snail LOL and duplo is awesome!

  75. an hour seems perfect to me…i wouldn’t mind if it was longer even. also, so agree you should do one when you first wake up…like when you’re still all sleepy-fied and bed-heady lol.

  76. I love the long live chats!!

  77. So lame that America isn’t able to get kindereggs. They are banned here because our government thinks we are to stupid not to eat the toys. *Choking hazard* It was actually in the news last summer that a family was stopped at the Border and almost fined for attempting to bring them into the country. ME WANTS ONE TT.TT

    • 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.

    • *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

    • I miss kindereggs so much!! I had them almost everyday back home, they are so delicious and so much fun! – America likes to think its people are too stupid to know NOT to swallow the damned toys.

  78. I’m still fangirling over the fact that you guys read my tweet :$ haha, and where I am, we’re an hour behind you :)

  79. 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! [:

  80. T_T I totally missed it because I was making a gingerbread house
    Thank you for putting it up

  81. LOL when they said they found it strange that family watch them I snickered cus my mother loves them and so does my sis so all three of us watch them all the time lol my mom definitely finds you guys great!

  82. Loved the re-run.

    Ps. What’s your fanmail adress? We wanted to drop off/send some stroopwafels couple of weeks ago, but we realised we dont know the adress…

  83. OMG this was awesome =) Nasty awesome

  84. irritablevowel

    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.

  85. 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

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

  87. 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

  88. 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 =.=

  89. An hour is more than fine! :D

  90. An hour is not too long! The time flies when it’s spent being goofy and silly!

  91. 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!

  92. anyway to stop the commercials?

    • 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…)

      • 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.

      • 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

      • 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.

  93. Bubbly and Cheesy? Mhmmm ! Sorry I missed it, but happy you put it up for us sleepy heads to enjoy later in the day!

  94. 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.
