Wow! It’s been a while since you’ve seen us cook Korean food, hasn’t it? We did our last cooking video on Korean Ramen, which was back in our old apartment. Why haven’t we done more cooking videos? Well, we don’t cook much. Ha! Going out to restaurants is so cheap and fast, and the food in the restaurants is better than what we can make on our own. Ha!

Anyhow, we wanted to do this video for a couple of reasons. We know how exceptionally taunting our FAPFAP videos are. As soon as we post one all we read in the comments and on Twitter is “BAAAGGHHH DROOLING F.U. EATYOURKIMCHI FOR TEASING ME WITH FOOD” Understandably. You can’t get a lot of this food in your area, more than likely. So, today, we wanted to cook something that, hopefully, you can find the ingredients for in your local Asian market, if you have one. If not, then I expect to read more of the aforementioned comments.

But even if you can’t get all of the Korean ingredients, you can at least get rice, can’t you? CAN’T YOU?! And then you can roll stuff into that rice. Simple enough! We didn’t show you any of our different Kimbap combinations, because we wanted to keep it somewhat authentic, so, yeah! There you go! Making Kimbap is easy.

Now, I’m sure someone here is gonna say something like, we forgot this step, or the rice needs special preparation or something. You’re probably right. We probably did forget something. If we did, please let us know! We forgot how easy it was to make Kimbap, so any tips or pointers or recipes you’ve got are greatly welcome.

Anyway, as always, we have bloopers, because we can’t really do anything in one take. We mess up a lot…but hopefully some of you find that funny :D


  1. If you have a pot with a tight fitting lid, put your rice and water in the pot, covered, bring to a boil, turn down the heat, and simmer 15-20 minutes (You probably want to test the times, I haven’t made my rice in a pot for over 10 years.)

  2. YUM! I love kimbap. It’s been a while since we’ve made it homemade… not since I was a kid. Now I want to make some on my own! :3

  3. It tastes better to use seasoned and roasted “김”. You can buy already seasoned and roasted from market. Also season rice with a little rice wine, sugar and salt. You can also buy ready made sushi-rice seasoning liquid from market. There is an art of making sushi rice, especially in Japan but also in Korea, which you can check out on internet.

  4. WANK suggestion: Spring time college festival.   I heard it’s awesome.

  5. ACTUALLY! They told us that they really liked it afterwards. So there! Ha!

    (I hope they weren’t just being nice!)

  6. If you wanna try cooking simple Asian meals again, check out Cooking With The Dog, which have easy and delicious Japanese recipes. I’ve made nothing but their dishes for the last week or so, and it came out really well even for a domestic failure like me :p


  7. Martina is so cuute~ 
    Looks yummy~ Might make it… some day.

  8. I like how this video is “GREEN-ER” than the seaweed that you used. Lol

  9. I’ve noticed that I’m starting to adopt part of Martina’s mannerisms… As a guy, is that bad?

  10. when i was little i thought that i was making up a brand new word for the name of my new kitten, but it just so happens that GRETA is a regular name…lols…but I made it from Henrietta….so :P!

  11. A fun video as always! The only thing I noticed was the fact that you did not wash the rice before cooking it.. ya know, just rinsing it at least two times. Maybe just Thai folk do it? I picked it up from my husband. I’m a white lady from the US and I never knew to wash it before cooking it. Anywho. Someone also mentioned that you did not add vinegar to the rice, but I assume that’s only done for sushi…maybe.
    Let us know how the folk at the coffee shop enjoyed your kimbap, please. =)

  12. Love your makeup today, Martina! Like a soft, sweet version of Rosie the Riveter! (Because of the bandana.. )

  13. Oooooh is the rice not vinegared like sushi? *don’t hate me, I mean this in a not saying they are the same, but as in I do not like the vinegared rice*

    •  vinegar is only used to season raw sea-food dishes, hence why japanese sushis have tons of it. Korean food uses a lot of vegetables and thus sesame seed oil is used for the seasonings of most Korean food

  14. Can you do one on how to make dukbokki please?

  15. ahahahaha martina at shinee reference! Nice awkward dance lol
