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. I totally wanted to try this but now I can save the money (which, btw, is way too much for this thing) because it doesnt really seem to work.

  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. i’m glad they like KPP they should review one of her mv’s by making idk a special MM?

  6. Simon? Simon! Was that “Hello Timmy” as in “I’m going to use your blood as syrup on my pancakes” ?!?

    If so, we are both irredeemably old.

  7. Tagged as: confusing

    kpop boy posters? ~swoons~

    poor simon… don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll find something someday~ ;u;

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

  11. 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.

  12. Omg I should not have watched this when I was eating. Food all over my computer now.

    Laughing so hard!!!!!!!!

  13. I approve of the kyary pamyu pamyu reference ;D

  14. Am I the only one hummimg “octopus’s garden” by the beetles after Simons octopuses butthole comment? I am? Ok :( ill show myself out.

  15. “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

  16. We do have things like this in the USA. I personally haven’t tried them but they are probably at least a bit better quality than Étude’s. I see them whenever I go to buy things at the State salon supply store. Here’s what I’m talking about… http://satinsmooth.com/product_info.php?pcID=155_162&products_id=547#

  17. Step 1: Figure out something that women want to enhance in some way.
    Step 2: Find a weird smelling, vaguely sticky material.
    Step 3: Smother it in cold liquid.
    Step 4: ???
    Step 5: Profit!

  18. This is hilarious. I wouldn’t use it, it sounds like a piece of gel that would make your lips dry and feeling weird. I haven’t seen it in California but I’ll try to look for it

  19. Next wtf should be lipstick stickers!!!!

  20. The only gel cosmetic that i usually buy is face moisturizer if my lips are dried I put on chapstick and it’s done.

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

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

  23. Haha, this is really funny guys. Who would ever use that when chapstick is available?
    Am I the only one who doesn’t know the different between lipstain and lipstick?

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

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

  26. 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 :)

  27. Video is showing up now! :)

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

  29. 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…

  30. I think you guys need to refresh it again, mine finally started working again~!

  31. 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.

  32. 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’

  33. And this is why i will forever love the WTF segments! XD i laughed like a idiot through half the video!! i had also re-watched the old ones so many times, i know E X A C T L Y what you guys say…BUT IT’S STILL HILARIOUS! XD i’m so glad these WTF segments are finally back~! WOOHOO! It’s “Patry” time! XDD

  34. Reminds me of the gel sheets to help get rid of scars.

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

  36. We saw these at the Faceshop and we were like wtf

  37. 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.

  38. 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

  39. Theres no video for this post? Maybe it’s just my computer but I refreshed 5 times :(
