Welcome back to the second episode of the return of the WTF Korea segment, aka, Wonderful Treasure Find Korea, in which we talk about some of the weird, wonderful, and quirky things we’ve found here in Korea. We’re not sure if these items are common where you’re from. It’s something that we’ve recently discovered: we’ve been living away from “home” for a while now, so our points of reference are starting to become dated. Maybe some of the things we’re fiddling around with here are new to us, but have been in North America for a while. Right? Well, I hope not. It doesn’t seem like anyone noticed the Breast Enhancers from last week in their home country, so I’ll take that as a positive sign.

Anyhow, today we’re playing with something that we clearly didn’t understand how to use: the Etude House Gel Lip moisturizer thingies. Umm, I think we might have missed out on the instructions here, because these things did not work for us. We were under the impression that they would stick to our mouths, rather than fall off of our mouths with the slightest of movements. Turns out you can only use these if you’re laying on your back for 15 minutes straight. I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit too busy to sit in one spot without talking for that long. Did anyone else ever try these before? Are we doing this wrong?

And they didn’t even really make our lips feel that much better. I’d rather put on lip balm in two seconds and carry on with the rest of my life than wear this for 15 minutes and keep my life completely still. It doesn’t really do that much of a better job. And it smells so bad! There’s a cherry scent to it, sure, but it’s just masking the scent of awkward plastic. Altogether, DO NOT BUY.

I’m hoping next week’s WTF will have something we actually enjoy using. Really…really hope so. Whoa.

Aaaaand on that note, make sure you click on the lovely button here. Subscribing is good for you! And it’ll get better for you in the future when we incorporate things specially just for subscribers. *Hint hint* ;)

  1. lipstain doesn’t come off that easily. I recommend it!

  2. Whose nasty idea was it to make them SO FREAKIN’ BIG!?!?! Seriously! Nobody has a mouth that big! Come off it! How ludicrous! Yuck, really gross… Also, ew, those sticky vending machine goops… XD I loved throwing the sticky hand at stuff, but god, they got so dirty so quickly… Euuugh…

  3. I’ll keep this picture as my wallpaper forever! hahahaha! XD

  4. Thank you for another WTF! :)


  5. Martina, I love your nails~♡
    Can you put the pic PWEEEEZEEE!!!! :D

  6. hahahaa Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s album cover!!!
    and that thing does look scary!! looks like you have clown makeup on!!

  7. Step 4: *Simon’s lipstick/stain dance* ^_^

  8. I love Etude House too! and Martina, it’s your fault! like, a million years ago you made a post about make-up and mentioned that you used the BB cream from Etude house… well, I went and bought it and have been using it ever since! They have a shop here in Tokyo and i’m always in there cuz it’s so cheap!! XD I really hope they send you free stuff :p

    I’ve never seen this lip thing here though! i’ve seen the under-eye patches (and used them loads!) but not those lip things!! but then again, watching your wtf on it, maybe it’s for the best… lol.

  9. “None of ‘dem dirty lips…all of those buttholes you been kissing.”

    Simon, as always, you are HILARIOUS! I can always count on you for a laugh. Buttholes…smh and lol.

    Martina, your eyes look awesome! Lovin’ the eyeshadow palette you have on for this vid. Makes your eyes pop.

    Aight…I’m gonna go rehydalize. Hahaha

  10. so sooo so so so glad you brought back WTF Korea ^_^

  11. I feel like in Martina’s sleepover party scenario, I’d be the one they’d make wear that lip gel thing. XD

  12. “specially just for subscribers. *Hint hint* ;)” ooh do i sense a return of giveaways in the WTF segments?

  13. Oh WTF how i missed you so! And now i have lipstick stuck in my head…

  14. I seriously love the opening to WTF. I’m so glad you brought this segment back and am so excited for new segments to come. I’ve seen everyone of your videos since 2011 and love every second of EYK :)

  15. I will go to youtube and find the video lol, I can’t see it :(

  16. When I was in Korea I really wanted to try these, but all the Etude Houses I went to (I went into practically everyone I saw!) wouldn’t sell me just a single pack! I would ask for just 1 and they would be like “No, have 10!” which was 9 too many, so I just gave up…

  17. Video still is not present, so I hopped to You Tube.

    If the next WTF is also girly then make it an all girl thing with Soo Zee and Intern Leigh. That would be fun. Then there has to be a counter attack all boy video with Simon and Ryan um, I dunno, some WTF guy thing. Changing a tire? Ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh, GOING TO THE HARDWARE STORE. And buying hardware. Yeah.

  18. LOL my korean friend took a picture with those once and uploaded it onto facebook, and i was so confused while i saw the picture. i was like ‘what the hell is that? her lips aren’t actually that big’

  19. Bwahahaha ya’ll had me rolling with the creepy horror doll part.

  20. I don’t see it either on the blog, but moseyed over to YouTube to watch it.

  21. haha I am so glad you guys brought this segment back. I am just waiting for something as classic and classy as the twonkle twonkle mug.

  22. If it helps, I don’t see it either. Had to go to youtube directly.

  23. Where’d you guys get the music right at the “rehydalize” part? I hear it on Kandee Johnson’s youtube videos all the time. :)

    • I think they use a lot of music that is technically creative commons… EYK uses this same lil song which is the theme for How Stuff Works’ Stuff Mom Never Told You podcast. Think of it as the free effects Photoshop or Final Cut gives you but with sound

  24. Poor Simon being tricked into trying girly stuff again. *pats on back*

    • I liked how his dothraki man beard just refused to play along, though. Put girly stuff on my face, I destroy! Mwahaha! Although, Simon was the one putting the sparkly pink nail polish on his toes during the last two livechats…

  25. Oh dear Shisus, WTF Korea is an awesomely ridiculous segment. I’m so glad they brought it back!

  26. LOL What kind of lip product is this? XP And you have to lie down for 15 minutes? I can’t even sit down for that long unless I’m on the computer. . . :)

  27. Simon you are SO not a girl. They mean without lipstick or any other product.

  28. Awk. I hate this computer xD

  29. The fact that SImon cannot contain his excitement at this girly experience at the beginning of this video is priceless!! [insert sarcastic look here]

  30. FIRST! MUHAHUA! I feel like I need an acceptance speech.
