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. Is that song that Simon and Martina always have playing as like background music by Mr.Scruff?

  2. why do you love ranch soo much Simon?

  3. I just made kimbap for the first time a couple days ago, and this video was SUPER helpful!! Thank you!
    Now I have TONS of leftover 단무지 and I don’t know what to do with it. …Guess I’ll have to make more kimbap!

  4. god.I absolutely wanna make this. ughhhhhhhh craving for one

  5. wow this made me really hungry, awesome technique martina!
    to the only asian food market in my city! dananananana!!!

  6. 1-2 cups sour cream1-2 cups real mayo (not Miracle Whip)1/2 -1 cup milk (depending on how thick you want it)1/2 tsp garlic powder1/2 tsp onion powder or freshly chopped green onions1/2 tsp salt1/2 tsp pepper1 tsp parsley flakes, dried or fresh1/2 tsp dill, dried or fresh
    If you have those ingredients in Korea, Simon need never go without.

  7. Simon i love your shirt!! where did you get it?

  8. simon, I want your shirt! where did you get it?

  9. mayo’s actually not necessary lol

  10. Martina i love your makeup and hair style!  Your working the look girl love it!  :)  Simone you aighhhtt  hehehe

  11. is this video right after you showed us how to curl hair with a t-shirt?

  12. i don’t remember cheese and mayonnaise in my traditional kimbop (not traditional)  You could also lightly fried the rice with something, my mother does it.  

  13. Oh my god. I actually really want to try Ranch gimbap. And now I will never forget which side goes down. Freakin’ SHINee. And oh my jesus you guys are the cutest.


  14. Call it Koredian Kimbap(Korean-Canadian),or Canaan Kimbap(Canadian-Korean).
    Anyway,isn’t Kimbap almost like Sushi?

  15. You guys are supposed to season the rice with salt, a little bit of vinegar and sesame seeds before you use it

  16. is there something i can roll these with besides seaweed? unfortunately i’m fairly allergic to it :(


  18. why don’t you try spinach and ham? actually traditional style kimbab includes ham, spinach or cucumber also. trust me, it will be more tasty :D

  19. 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

  20. 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.

  21. nude kimbap has seaweed too.
    Nude kimbab is shift seaweed and rice location.
    (I do not know I write correctly. I believe that you understand.)

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


  24. You have the cuckoo rice cooker! I know random, but I watched a commerical with this guy on it..and he was cute…and good looking….anyways, thanks for this video! I wanna try this. 

  25. I’M SO GONNA MAKE THIS!!!!!!!! Yaya!!!! ^.^

  26. Is there new lighting being fixed up behind the camera? The kitchen looks really bright!

  27. Is that Simon’s awesome combination stepstool and water-gun-refilling bucket on the floor?  I cannot believe that Martina allows its continued existence after its role in her EPIC defeat to the Dothraki Water Warrior.

  28. Martina! your SHINee bit was just too cute!! :)

  29. I don’t know why, but your cooking videos are calming… mmm… 

  30. Nice… you make really good “futomaki” sushi. Now I’m going to make some. Btw I’m using the sushi making gadget called “sushezi.” Type in “sushezi” if you don’t know what it is.

  31. You guys have never had anything else made from Burdock before? Not even the totally divinely delish Dandelion and Burdock drink??? (B&D) Its a UK thing… if you’ve never had it Ill have to post you a can… yummmmmmm ^_____^

  32. Which type of rice should you use, short-grain ( sticky) or long-grain?  Also is brown rice ever used?

  33. I hope u wash ur rice, i like ur vids theyre cool keep it up 

  34. Hey, Martin and Simona, Have you seen an EpicMealTime video before?
    You should make a homage for them.

  35. in China, they love mayo just as much as Koreans do (or even more). It is on everything and more sweet than American mayo. I actually don’t like it, but I have gotten so used to it here that I don’t really mind anymore.
    PS: we went to a Korean restaurant last night and my friend was like “oh, sushi!” and I was like “no, that’s kimbap…” at which point she said “isn’t it the same?”. I had to patiently explain that, no they are not the same thing.

  36. Best part of the video – Martina’s Kimbap Song! 

    This is really toasty and make my finger burn a little but
    that’s okay coz I worked in a pottery studio. So my fingers are like oven
    mittens … *something something* … located in Etobicoke for pottery fun.
    Pretty sure I still remember the phone number 416-233 don’t remember the rest …
    *something something* … ^^ 

  37. Looks delicious!! I just realised a couple of weeks ago, my friend gave me this. I had no idea what it was, but it was so good. Thanks for showing us all! The one I had was ham and cheese. I usually don’t like ham but it was really yummy. 

    and I just wanted to add…
    I’ll watch you guys in what ever country you’re in and fully enjoy it. It’s kind of like that cliche term, home is were the heart is. No matter were you guys are, you’re so enjoyable to watch because it doesn’t matter where your location is, it’s where your happiness is! :D (Cheesy things are awesome).
