Ladies and gentlemen: WE FINALLY FOUND A STUDIO! A NASTY EATYOURKIMCHI STUDIO!!!

A little bit of our back story if you’re new to EYK: we started a crowdfunding project to go toward the getting of a studio. You wonderful NASTIES contributed a boatload more than we expected. After a bit of a wait for us to get the money, we could finally start looking around for the studio. The footage you see here is the whole studio hunting experience.

Now, this is a lot more sloppy than our regular videos, because we couldn’t walk around with our tripod and studio lights. A lot of the time we had to sneakily bring out our camera to film stuff, because the people there didn’t want us filming. Hells yeah we were gonna film our studio hunt! What: you don’t want your ghost holes caught on camera? Side note: you know, that first ghost hole we saw? They tried to tell us that it was perfectly fine and not the result of water damage. So we asked them what the bucket was for, underneath the hole. Was it a ghost catching bucket? HELLS NO! That’s a bucket for catching water. I don’t like being lied to in order to make a sale. Especially since MAMA DIDN’T RAISE NO FOO!!!!

So after seeing around 8 different offices over a span of two weeks, we finally found an office that was just perfect for us! It was formally a “UCC” studio which is Korea’s buzzword for “User Created Content”: it’s a kind of Konglish word for vlogging or making content for the internet. The point of this is: AYO – WE ARE A UCC FACTORY! We make boatloads of UCC in Korea. This was destined to be our spot.

The studio is already equipped with sound proof rooms and even a lighting rail so we can hang our lights! HERRRMIIIGERRRD!!! It even has a blue screen! And – check this out – for a fire safety system, instead of water sprinklers it has a powder system to put out the fire and not soak your equipment. AWESOME!

It still requires some work, especially considering there is no air conditioning and we’re on the top floor (we will roast in the summer), and we need to clean it up in order to make it an acceptable place to conduct interviews. We really felt down for a while there because it felt like we couldn’t find a place to suit our needs, but the very last place we saw was the golden ticket!!! So the timeline is looking like it will be done around January 2013, so three to four weeks or so, and we will keep you all updated on the demolition and reconstruction of the place.

Last thing: we’re really sorry that we haven’t sent out the fundraiser perks. It took us a long time to actually RECEIVE the money after the fundraiser finished, and only then could we look for a studio. Plus we were in the process of applying for our business in Korea as well as our VISA’s, so we couldn’t actually buy a studio without getting approved as a Korean business! Vicious circle of waiting. Once we found one and signed everything, Martina’s grandfather fell ill and we had to fly out to Canada for almost two weeks. We just got back recently, and met with the construction and design team instantly so they could start getting to work on the place.

So, once the studio’s ready for us to finally use, we’ll order all the boxes, labels, polaroids, and goods to the studio so we can pack it all up in one or two days. We thought about doing it in our house, but hundreds of boxes + cat + dog = disaster. Meemers will chew on it all and Spudgy will pee on it all. Fact. Plus, we’re going to get a bunch of friends to help make a Perk Preparing Factory! Our course we will bribe them with coffee and pizza. So I know you couldn’t see the finished studio, but what do you all think of the basic layout? I love love love the white brick and exposed ceiling! Let us know!

Now, we don’t have bloopers for this video like we usually do, probably because the entire episode was a giant blooper. Poop to that. But here’s our apartment tour if you’re new (or if you haven’t seen the apartment tour!). It’s all related to our moving into Seoul and starting Eat Your Kimchi Incorporated, so it counts!

 

We’ll be showing you more footage of the studio as it develops. Not sure how much we can get in, but I know tomorrow we’re gonna try to get them demolishing the place. I wonder if they’ll have a hard hat for us? Regardless, we’ll put ourselves in the line of fire to get that footage!

  1. man.. i wasn’t using the internet for about a week and i can’t catch up with all the things that happened; so, 1)are you officially starting business as Eat Your Kimchi Incorporated 2) are you going to film all of your videos in your new studio?

  2. i am so excited for you guys!! :D i can’t wait to see how the office will be set up and when you guys will start filming there. What a great way to start the new year!!! Congrats!!!

  3. a dothraki man warrior who’s afraid of ghost holes…

  4. Can you guys do a WANK when you are showing how you and people in Korea celebrate New Years eve? ^_^ What places to go to and so on ^_^

  5. ok, simon, you got to tell me the truth. Where is location 2?

  6. if u dont mind me asking :S a room like this how much dose it cost a month?

  7. it would be super cool to work for eat your kimchi company!! i wish i could work with you guise! (best job eva!!!)

  8. that’s awesome you guys! I’m happy for you and I can’t wait to see your epicly awesome studio when its all cleaned up and design-i-fied! =D

  9. Alright, well, I just wanted to congradulate you, this is really a small step for Canada and a big one for you guys :)
    Wish you all the luck in the world!

  10. kawaii_candie

    congratulations, you guises!!

    can’t wait to see the progress on this! ^^

  11. Simon&Martina I found your epic personal song, to bad it’s not korean XD Title: It’s nasty time! (Most used words are little kitty and nasty ^^)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WP2bzNNVfoA

  12. So… in the future, if you need any employees for your studio, will we be able to live in Korea working for you guys? :D

  13. I would suggest some awesome artistic fans that have sent you drawings be invited to do some wall murals. And perhaps a Nasty Wall where you can post the photos of the Nastiest

  14. i am so so so exited and happy for u guys sincerely from the bottom of my heart. The studio place looks nice n i love those doors for some reason. haha… good luck on the whole process. can’t wait for your next video guise~~~ *happy dance* (^o^)/

  15. soooo what your telling me is you got a Brohoho Brick Wall room? hahahah looks great!

  16. You guys are an inspiration!! The studio is really cool!! I wish you best of lucks!!

  17. Hi Simon and Martina!

    You had me at ”Soy un Dorito” ! It was the first time I saw you video ( I literally fell off my chair) and yes, I am a huge SHINee fan.
    I´m quite new to this site since I discovered k-pop just a couple of months ago.

    Congrats to you new studio! Really looking forward for some new videos:)

    I wanted to thank you for a great blog that helped me understand South-Korea’s culture and k-pop. You made my life richer in knowledge.
    I love you sense of humor and you 2 have such a unique personality. Adore it!!

    Keep up the good work!

  18. simon sounds like you’ve got a cold :( your studio looks pretty nice i’m sure you guys will decorate it to the T n it will look absolutely awesome. love martina’s hair and sweater in this vid :)

  19. So when you’re all set up will people (Nasties and tourists) be able to stop by your studio for a quick visit or tour?

    • We’re trying to think of a way to do this. We can’t have people just stop by and drop in anytime, because we’re working, right? It’s not like we can just stop working and start chatting with people, cuz then no videos would get made. But we’re trying to think of something…

      • Also if it’s a place for Kpop artists to come and interview, you cant just let everyone know where its located as there will be safety issues….. Unless the place has a secret back door for the artists to come in and out of…

  20. Thankyou for filming this video. Its pretty weird watching you guys get “bigger”, but I can’t help but feel like a proud parent!! EYK will only get better with this studio!!

  21. Omigod, I am so freaking happy! Seeing all of this is almost like we’re really there ourselves, going with you every step of the way. It’s so fun and makes me so happy!
    Those ghost holes were creepy. Why would they even show you a place with a giant-ass ghost hole? Did they assume “oh, they’re foreigners, maybe they won’t look up” or something? Weird, but the place you found is AAAWWWWESOME!!!
    You’re one step closer to becoming an epic EYK studio! We Nasties are cheering you on every step of the way!!!

  22. How exciting :) I look forward to all the awesomeness that you shall produce. OBTW I have gotten my MOTHER into your videos, yeah..3 generations of nasties :D

  23. Yay!!! You guys found a studio!! It’s ok that there are still adjustments and such that need to be made. You can always relocate later in your career. Use and build w/ what you have for now!! You guys are creative and capable of doing anything!! I feel so proud of you both!! You’re my inspiration =]b

    I actually dont mind waiting for the care packages. Take your time w/ them! I bought a bunch of Korean skin & lip products online. Im wondering how i’m going to find more room for newer products. Darn!! Why are they so cutely packaged and work so well on my skin? Esp. Tony Moly’s line of products… fruit shaped containers, coffee shaped containers, teardrop containers, cute cats and veggie shaped ones too!! xD

  24. I soooo feel you on the mold thing martina. Im allergic so I can tell where there’s mold just about anywhere, so when I smell it im like 0.0

  25. AWESOME NEWS!

    Congrats guys, really!! This is amazing… I’m starting something from scratch too, so I know exactly how you’re feeling right now.

    Well, now I know where I’m going to tour when I’m in South Korea… we prepared, us nasties will want to go and explore : D

  26. Glad to see you both again (catching up), and congradulations!!! Can’t wait for your new amazing videos from the studio.

  27. Congrats on finding your new studio! I’m excited to see how the final product will turn out. :)

  28. May I call this the Nasty Cave?

  29. Congratulations guys! I’m so happy for you. I really hope it would be open to visitors in the future. I would really love to drop by when I get the chance to visit South Korea. :) More power to you guys! From your fan in the Philippines. :)

  30. i remember looking B2ST up on itunes and running across your vlog because at the time itunes didn’t really have any kpop….oh have times have changed. Forever grateful to itunes for finding you guys 2 years ago.
    it’s kind of funny being a Fan of Fans but so great to have someone to spazz with. So happy that you’ll soon have the studio up and running.

  31. I personally can’t wait for your inaugural studio interview! I’m hoping for JYJ (Junsu at the very least!). I’m also super excited for segments on kdramas!

  32. kpopfan123

    I’m so excited!! > . . <

    ♥♥♥♥

  33. Blue screen…. THIS BETTER MEAN YOU GUIZ SUPERIMPOSED IN MUSIC VIDEOS. Just a thought… love to see you guys frolicking around Mr Bro ho ho’s room for “reals”….

  34. KYAAAA this is so awesome!!! I can’t wait to see you work in it!!!
    I’m coming to Korea in August, I have bought my plane tickets already, do you think I could come and say hi?
    Anyhow i’m so excited for you!!!

  35. Wowza! Although you guys are talking as if this is taking a long time it all feels so damn fast, what have I done in the last 3 or 4 months…..hmmmmm…..not setting up an entire new business! Congrats, I am really delighted for ye and can’t wait to see what use you end up putting it to.

  36. Oh. My. GAWD.
    It’s AMAZING!!! *O*
    Congratulations, Simon and Martina!!!
    ….eeeek, I not-so-secretly want to work there. Real bad. *0*

  37. so excited for you guys and all the new eatyourkimchi shows!!!! :) Much blessings!!!

  38. Wow that moment where Martina hummed the theme to “Are you Afraid of the Dark” was super nostalgic. That show used to scare the piddle out of me. Congrats by the way ;)

  39. AHHH IM SO EXCITED FOR YOU GUYS!!!!!! CONGRATS!!!!! MAY ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. It’s perfect! The doors look so cool the brick wall and the ceiling too. Paint the pipes a different colour! It would look so interesting XD

  41. Congratulations guys! I’m very happy for you. I’m so excited!!!

    felicitaciones chicos!!! estoy muy feliz por ustedes. Estoy tan emocionada!!!

  42. I am so unbelievably proud of you guys and am so excited that your studio is finally coming to fruition!! I am such a proud nasty! Thanks for showing us how the hunt was for you. It must have been so tiring but definitely well worth all of the hassle. Can’t wait to see more and I am definitely cheering you guys on from Florida!!

  43. YAY!! I’m so happy for you guys! The place you picked is perfect :)

  44. omg. that looks awesome! if i come to korea, can i visit your new studio? btw, who was with you guys when you were hunting for the studio? i heard another female voice speaking in english.

  45. I wish i lived in Korea. I would love to work for you guys. <3

  46. Hope the place works out for you. But not that you have a true studio, does that mean you will have to commute to work?

  47. This has kind of already been touched on by a few of the comments, but I would love to get a little more info on what kind of hiring you plan to do. Whatever you are willing to share, including preferred background/skills, number of people, responsibilities, (salary maybe?) would be greatly appreciated. And this is a little more general: Would you consider yourselves to be active participants in the blogosphere community? Do you think your interests in employees reflects the typical requirements?

    I got inspired to take an interest in online journalism after hearing about your studio and I cannot lie, I think working with you guys would be a dream. HOWEVER, I’ve still got another two years of school before my degree and I think you will probably have an established family of Nasties by then… not that I won’t still send you my resume seconds after I graduate. :)

    • One of the biggest things for us now is hiring Korean people. There’s an immigration/visa law that doesn’t let us hire foreigners until we’ve been a business for at least a year and have hired FIVE Korean people. I wish it was just as easy as hiring cool people from all around the world, but we have to keep it local at first…

      • Awwww, darn, but i can understand. If your gonna start a business there you better employee there… makes sense. Can’t wait to see who you pick. I’m sure they are amazing.

  48. That place is SOOO GREAT!! I’m so excited for ya’ll Believe me, Martina, I feel your pain with the sensitive nosez. My super awesome gift is not only to snuss out mold, but I can tell you how long something, like a mouse, has been dead. Yeah. Sucks. Oh, something else I’ve been meaning to say. .. .I LURV YOUR BLUE SHIRT!!!! It looks SOOO comfy and I want one!

  49. As they were going through, Martina mentioned interviewing Big Bang so in each location I was looking for like… “Big Bang Worthy” Features. As soon as she said “fitting room” I was like (>O.O)> “that’s the one”

  50. that is amazing! glad you found a place, hope I have time to visit when I come to Korea this summer

  51. omg!! exiting, congrats on finding the perfect place.

  52. thisisjustforfunval

    Congratulations on finding the studio of your dreams. It looks and feels like you guys with the brick wall, windows and those sound proof doors. It just screams Simon and Martina or should I say Eat Your Kimchi :)

  53. please make a tour video of you new studio

  54. you should use the brick room for one of mr brohoho skit

  55. My dream is to live in korea, I fell in love by watching your videos!!

  56. Oh my gosh I’m sooo excited for you guys! I remember way back when I was learning the Lucifer pet-the-camel-dance with you guys and laughing my but off at Simon’s inflatable ahjussi boobs and Martina’s creepy circle lenses. Back when there was no PLAYLIST MODE and Spudgy had green hair. You guys have grown so much and I’m so happy for you guys. FIGHTING to the awesomest and cutest couple eveeeer!!!!

  57. I’m so happy for you guys :”) ^_^

  58. Isabel Ruby

    i love that really old school thing on the wall in the main room of the studio… i feel like it belongs in a old USSR submarine going ~~bip bop boink squiggly sound~~ congratulations on finding a studio!!!!!!!

  59. OHMIGOD!!!!!!

    You found one!!!! That’s so exciting! You should totes show us the entire renovation process!

    So happy for you guys!

  60. Wow, I can’t believe you have your own studio already!!! It’s crazy to think of Eat Your Kimchi as its own business :P I hope everything works out and I can’t wait to the the final result.

  61. SOOOOOOOO EXCITED! :D Congratulations, you totally deserve it :)

  62. It’s better for the company to sign for the studio because hopefully that means limited liability on your guys’s parts XD But if you sell the business the studio shall go with it, so no more studio for you guys XD btw I would love a remodeling video… like oh I think we should have this plant.. no no this plant and then cue fast-mo footage of you renovating the studio and stuff XD

  63. Congratulations! I’m happy you found a place, do you know when it will actually be finished? :)

  64. Congrats!!!! I am so excited for you guys. I can’t wait to see the next video!

  65. If I were about 12 years older, I would totally apply to work for you… But I’m only eleven. But I luv luv luv video editing! :D plus I was born in Korea!

  66. How Freaking AWSOME!!!!! I’m Soooooo EXCITED!!! :D

  67. It’s so amazing! I’m glad you found something that tickles your tastebuds :3

  68. so like… my school is having a field-trip to korea next summer… can i like… go to your studio and be like “oooh you’s so naasty” LOL anyway, Congratulations EYK!! ^__^

  69. funny!!! lover everything that you guys do!!!

  70. Wow, that studio seems like it was tailor-made for your needs and just waiting for you to come find it. Even though I only saw it through your camera, I definitely got good vibes from that place. Does it also have a bathroom? That seems like something that would be important for when you have bands visit.

    I am so happy that you guys are firmly on your way to fulfilling your dream and I wish you the best of luck. I’m looking forward to seeing what you’ll do in the future now that you have a separate professional work space. (Psst! Interview MBLAQ again :D You can use that skit that you weren’t able to last time.)

  71. lol i would live in your work studio and work for you guys!! seriously!! lol j/k… so i will die from the ghost lol…. enjoy finding a studio

  72. Congratulations! I’m so happy for you guys, I was grinning like a fool during the video when you finally found the place that you liked. Your happiness was infectious! I totally understand the ju-ju’s you get when you find the place you were looking and hoping for. There is just something about a place that screams out to you when you’re house hunting/office hunting, you know almost straight away that its the one! And it sounds and looks fantastic, layout, location, sound proof room and an awesome fire system! You even have your own mini Brohoho prop! haha the brick wall looks like a perfect blank canvas for anything and everything. I can’t wait to see how you (mostly Martina xD) decorates the place! I hope everything goes well now and there are no hiccups in the process of re-fitting and setting the rest of the studio up. You deserve this and I’m so glad all of the nasties were so supportive and were able to help you get a studio! CONGRATS!

  73. PunkyPrincess92

    oh my god!!!! i’m so freakin’ excited for you guys!!! WWAAAHH!!!!
    such an awesome place you found!! so happy for you guys!!!
    hey it’s that stamp stick thing!! i’ve seen it in dramas!!! don’t lose it or it might go into the hands of EVIL!!!!!!

  74. The place looks fantastic!!! The large window hole Simon jumped in through looks perfect for an electrochromic window (the ones that go from tinted to clear with a click of a button depending on your fancy)….I’ll admit I’m a bit bipartial to EC windows in offices since I work for an EC startup but it would look super slick.

  75. Good things come to good people like you.. congrats!! you’re officially the CEOs of the company with an office..

  76. How close is this studio to your apartment? Is it at a walking distance or do you have take the subway/taxi in order to get there?

  77. OMG! I’m so so so happy for you, guys! I’m as excited as you are! I cannot wait to see the final look of your studio! I love the space and I can’t wait to see it be filled with all your stuff and equipment once it’s complete! Kyaaaaaah! Congratulations, EYK! ^____^

  78. Future place of employment…I hope?! I’ll be a graduate in two and a half years, hopefully you’ll take employment applications by then!

  79. CONGRATULATIONS, EYK, INC!! You guise were incredibly lucky in finding your perfect dream studio!! CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS!!

  80. Sophie

    I’m so happy for you guys!!! Best of luck to you guys and your new studio!!

  81. Love it guise!!! Looks amazing! So happy for you and can’t wait to see the finished product!!!

  82. i cant believe all of this. wait so you guys are gonna be on tv? eh anyways i cannot express meh feels

  83. Yey! I am so excited to see what the studio will look like. I was laughing at the first real estate person totally ignoring everything you said. It was so awesome that you found someone else who would listen to your needs. It seems like this place was tailor made for you. I was especially excited about your EYK stamp. I knew that most Korean contracts are stamped, not signed, but did not know that there was a stamp for businesses too. So cool.

    Can’t wait to see the progress of work.

    • Yeah! The stamp is, like, the coolest thing about owning a business. It says “Eat Your Kimchi CEO.” CEO! Ha!

    • They use those same types of official seals/stamps in Japan. When I was there I needed to get one for my bank account. You know how one of the common ways Japanese is read is in columns, right to left? Well I had my name printed that way in katakana on my stamp, so it read ライサム, but you have to picture it like a square separated into four boxes: ‘ra’ was on the upper right, with ‘i’ below it, then ‘sa’ was on the upper left, with ‘mu’ below it, just like if you read it top to bottom and right to left. When I went to the bank, though, the clerks helping me squealed in excitement over my name because for whatever reason they read it top to bottom, but from left to right, so that it read サムライ, ha! As in 侍 (さむらい). So apparently I have the coolest seal ever for a foreigner. :D

  84. I’m reallly crazy about the lighting in the exposed ceiling. Reminds me of a game of Super Mario. All the exposed brick just needs a gray wash and it would have very underground feel. Not crazy about the wall window, though. Is that one of the walls that is coming out? I’m really happy you two found a place you love and didn’t have to settle. Cannot wait to see the finished project!

  85. So so happy for you guys! Can’t wait to see your new studio in action

  86. Were you humming the Are You Afraid of the Dark theme when looking into that hole, Martina? :)

  87. I’m so exited for you guys! You finally got your studio! It looks amazing and seems perfect for you! And don’t worry, I and many other Nasties understand why the perks are taking so long. You two don’t seem like shifty eyed no-do gooders, so i wasn’t in any hurry for them. :) have fun designing your new NASTY STUDIO!

  88. I have offically decided my dream career!
    Work for eatyourkimchi! :D
    ..no but seriously, I’d absolutely love that! haha I’m studying animation right now and teaching myself video editing to intern for my dads video editing company..but I’d much rather move to Korea and work with you guys! haha
    Anyway, the studio looks so cool! I’m so excited for you guys :]

  89. bigbangfosho

    IT LOOKS AWESOME! I’m sure after the redesigning and all, it’ll be like a palace studio. I love your style, and I’m pretty sure it will be so darn awesome! I’m so so excited for you guys! URRUGUHGHGH!! I WANNA SEE WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE AFTER! omg..this is SO AWESOME.

  90. Congratulations, you guys! I can’t wait to see the finished product!

  91. CONGRATULATIONS :D :D im so glad you found a studio that you both loved :D yay for good ju ju’s :D

  92. Congratulations, guise! I expect those white walls will be covered with many-a-color when it’s all done. :3 Super excited for you!

  93. “The Jeffersons” theme song comes to mind: ♫ Well we’re movin on up / To the east side / To a deluxe apartment in the sky ♫ i’m super excited for everything that’s happening and am looking forward to the eyk family growing~ i’m so glad you guys didn’t settle earlier because that studio is Godsent~ it’s going to be even awesomer when it’s all done and beautified^^

  94. hapagirl

    Really amazing. I sorta am having a mental image of foreign exchange students wanting to come to Korea and intern with you. Then I can see them passing out when all the kpop stars also come in. I honestly like the last place and I’m so happy that you guys were able to find this and that everything is going well for you gusy. I am wondering if they were taking to some of those places with problems because you guys aren’t Korean?

  95. Oh my goodness, I’m so excited for you guys! ^.^

  96. I really like the last place ^-^ can’t imagine why they would show a place with leaks and holes in walls and on ceilings -.- it really looked gross …
    Anyways, I am happy that you finaly found a place for your studio ^-^. Good luck ~

  97. Doesn’t shank mean to sexually force yourself onto someone?
    O.o
    or maybe I’m thinking of something else lol
    That studio is totes adorbz, I just want to finish college and apply to work for you guys right now as whatever, a Korean translator, a coffee maker, an errand runner, an ANYTHING I WILL SERIOUSLY EVEN SLEEP IN THE CLOSET AND YOU ONLY HAVE TO PAY ME IN BULGOGI AND SOJU^^

  98. I’m so excited! The studio looks great, so I can’t wait to see it after the remodeling. I hope you guys include something that the groups/artists you interview there can sign & leave messages! :D Anyways, congrats on the studio!! I’M SO PUMPED~

  99. I’m so exciteeed! And it feels so awesome – I helped you pay for that! Maybe that square cm of floor there in the corner can be mine? Haha xP Can’t wait to see the finished studio! I hope everything goes well!

  100. Wow I’m so excited for you guys. Your studio is really cool and I can picture you guys working there. I love everything about it, especially the big windows, sound proof doors, awesome ceiling.

    Look forward to seeing how the construction goes along.

  101. Ah! I wish I were a super editor of awesome Korean person so that I might apply to your company! I am so excited for you guys. I think that the work you do is great and you totally deserve your own studio. I know the quality can be really hit and miss for apartments and spaces that cost the same. Thankfully you found a space that I know you will make amazing.

  102. I’m so glad that you guys finally found your studio, I hope you’re very happy with it…good luck with your business :)

  103. I am so happy you guys finally found a place! :)) You guys were all saying how the last place you had feels for and BAM! It was the right place :)) Once ya’ll stepped foot in there, I knew it was the place. I really love the ceiling in the first room entered with the exposed tubes and the window that isn’t a window haha xD With that fitting room area, there’s now a place to put all your wigs and costumes and stuff :D No more worries of interviews in closests! LOL The space just looks really cool and great for interviews and stuff :D And the fire safety thing with powder instead of water sprinklers is the cherry on top! That is awesome! I’ve never heard of that.

  104. So awesome! Can’t really say whether I like this place for a studio, it looks cool but I have no clue what sort of space a studio needs XD I’m sure the end result will blow my mind though!! Keep up the awesome nastiness ^^

  105. Ammahammaaaa, so excited for you guys!! *Bouncing* Really looking forward to se the construction and then the finale :D You guys are working so hard, awesome ^^

  106. Love the new studio! So excited to see it all finished! Eat Your Kimchi Fighting!

  107. I’m so happy that you guys found a studio but then I realized there will be no more random cameo of Dr. Meemers or Spudgy… unless if you guys bring them to the studio too!!! :)

  108. Congratulations! Your studio looks really nice :) Can’t wait to see after reconstruction!

  109. While construction is going on could you maybe do a video of the area the studio is in… as in exploring nearby coffee shops and restaurants you might end up going to while editing or working or ordering in from… might be a fun FAPFAP/WANK type thing.
    Also when are you revealing the Nasty Hall of Fame with all the donors’ names?
    I figured you might do that earlier since it would just be on your website and all digital…
    so Spudgy can’t pee on it lol

  110. Smiles through the whole video. :D
    SO STOKED FOR YOU GUYS! God bless!

  111. Congrats guise!

    BTW, about the fire extinguishing system: if it’s a “dry chemical” type, it’s still not great for electronics – it’s a very corrosive fine powder that will get in everything. Better than water, but still not great. OTOH, if it’s halon, super awesome!

  112. It looks awesome! I’m so excited for you guys!

  113. I am so freaking excited! I don’t know if you guys can do this but it’ll be really cool if you can paint the exposed ceiling primary colors. It will make the ceiling pop out more.
    I can’t wait to see the end result!

  114. YAY!! im so excited to see the Eat Your Kimchi Studio come together! :D the place already looks awesome~ its really cool of you guys to takes us Nasties along for the journey <3 like one big world wide Nasty family lol

  115. It’s amazing!!! It’s going to look so so cool!!!! Keep up tha great work, I’m so happy for you~~~~~ ^^
    FIGHTING!!! o/

  116. Hello.
    Fist time here.
    Good to see you guys found it a good place.
    My tip for some decoration is keep with the
    exposed ceiling BUT change the colors.

    A very colorful place, but with Pastel tones, would be very nice and with a chic and usual kind of contemporary Korean style mix with the structure of the place that seems very concrete and cold.

    Some light-clean wood furniture mixed with dark wood accents on the walls or in the windows and some of the doors (probably you guys will not touch the sound-proof doors, because they’re not that cheap, so you guys can paint them in this colorful pastel tones, to open the place energy with more vivacity and bring good vibes for it. :) using pastel orange or red or even a good light (not baaabyy) pink and not-sharpy-more-soft-and-minimal-neutral couches, puffs and things like coffee machines or tea (for you guys and for the invited people) contrasting with the colors of the environment would make a great tune.

    Would suit for the interviews creating one atmosphere where the idols or artists could feel relaxed and at the same time give them a soothing place to shoot the videos (clean their minds a little bit too) and cheer them with the simple-but-interesting-and-stylish style.

    No need of a huge amount of cash to do it.

    Basically, the woody part, you guys can even try to find some recycled or reformed options that would be great.

    Painting, must be very well done so I think this would be the most hm, expensive part.

    AH, the positioning of the furniture should be done with a lot of care, Don’t know if you guys know it or believe it, but use some feng shui would be great (for you guys luck too) and would make this place even better for you guys, for the people there and for the viewers.

    I see that have a lot of columns on the walls. *not good for the energy tbh* Making them a rest for the eye and let them be more Neutral in energy (using some stone finishing or wood as I said before ^^) would be a great thing.

    Oh, and one VERY important thing that could make you guys save some cash AND improve the design is choosing the proper lightning. Use more natural light and reflection you guys can. Sun and evening should make part of the ambient to make a good mood. Nothing directly, If possible, nothing so cold as this fluorescent lights in this part with the tubes.
    This tubes are very nice and you guys can make them even more niiice with the right color. If you guys paint the roof above them, you guys can keep them white. This would be awesome.

    A great thing is the walls is already white so you guys will make a good economy in paint. :) great choice.

    Some source of natural wind should be very welcome to make the place “alive” and make you guys feel batter at working too.

    Kpop is my initial inspiration for this tips. I hope you guys can see and note that all of it, would be very good for the identity you guys are trying to create and would make visible that kpop can be very “cute” and very “cheerful” too but the base is always matured, well-organized, not retarded or dumb, and specially, have a soothing “hope” behind each kind of influence K-pop and this Korean try to remold the traditional culture embracing other values with more freedom, more open for other cultures as well always, for sure, showing the spirit of South Korea and all the changes that this country is passing through.

    :)

    THANK YOU FOR READING MY BOOK OF COMMENT AND SORRY FOR THE HUGE TEXT.
    hope you guys can take this as one tip ^_^

    Cheers from Brazil.

  117. I am super excited. It also looks like such an awesome place. Now Big Bang can come and have a place to sit. it’s also awesome how the rooms are sound proof already. it would such if they wernt because you would have to pay for all of that. This way your not worrying about it. I am excited to see how everything is going to be and when you see up the desk. Now what you need is the Glass Name plates to show that your the presidents of the company. you have to get thoughts made up. I have seriously always wanted one of thoughts. when you get them you should video type it. You have your stamp and then your name plate all official-ness :P

  118. This is so awesome! It’s like you guys are slowly building THE EAT YOUR KIMCHI EMPIRE/INC./CORP./CO. (what else?!) and when that day comes I’d be talking to my future offspring and be like, “Listen, kids, this is how it all started…” Hahaha. So excited for you! Fighting!

    (Oh, and by the way, I would totally work and live in your studio! Just feed me with ramen and let me bring my cat. I will do whatever job you want me to do. I can babysit Meemers and Spudgy when you’re not around! Lol.)

  119. I hope I’ll get the opportunity to visit your studio next summer while I’m staying in Korea.

  120. I loved the little ‘Are you afraid of the dark?’ theme tune!! :D

  121. I’m so happy there is no ghost hole in your studio! *shiver*

  122. This is BEYOND awesome, guys! Eat Your Kimchi just keeps getting better and better; and I’ve only been following you guys for a year! Good luck in everything! ;)

  123. Looks FANTASTIC BABY!!! You know I had to say that! Anyhoo, I think a coffee/tea/espresso/bottled water station should be set up on the other side of that window in the wall thing (in the room with all the windows). That way the stars can hang out a little bit before or after the interview.

  124. Knowing how awesomely developed the Design field is in Korea, I am SURE your studio will look amazing!!! <3 I am so glad you guys finally hit jackpot! :D Congratulations, you must have saved a Country in your past lives in order for everything to work out this way now! <3

    btw, I am studying Interior Design/Architecture – Do you guys know which University in Korea would give me the best possible training if I were to go and do a 6mo – 1 year exchange program or something?

  125. I’m new here but I’m so happy for you and can’t wait for the new episodes in the studio :DDDD

  126. i’m so excited for you guys!!

  127. I’m so happy to see that you find the studio!! :D It’s super nice and I totally feel it’s going to look awesome!! for Eat your Kimchi Studio HOORAY!!!

  130. i must say it’s … EHHHRMAAAGAAAAD so cool and when you were showing it before we knew it was ur studio i was like ” omg omg omg i can’t even it s perfect i know they chose this one :OOOO ”

  131. Congratulation Simon and Martina from Indonesia, can’t wait for the final looks of your office. Good Luck and God Bless!!!

  136. you have to have a dr.meemersworth and spudgy mural!!!

  137. I’m so happy for you guys! I wonder if you guys would be hiring people, I would love to work for youuu~ let us know if you’re hiring lol >.<

  142. “I love love love the white brick and exposed ceiling!”

    EHRRMAGERDD ME TOOO. You guys are awesome, even I feel moved watching all these development of EYK. I’m glad that I grow with you guise since your first apartment. Since KMM MBLAQ’s Cry to be exact :*

  143. I’m sooo excited for you!! And Martina, you look stunning in your green christmas jumper, the high bun and your eye makeup. That look is a keeper! :3

  144. Wow this is so exciting! I love the space, the great thing about Korea is their super crazy fast contruction work. I am constantly amazed at how fast an interior can go up in a new place.

    After two years of teaching in Korea (this february) I’ll be going home to the US. I started watching your videos in summer of 2010 to get prepared for the move, and watch them every week since. Even though I’m leaving the good ol ROK, I’ll continue to watch your videos and keep up with all your studio goodness! Also very excited to recieve the polariod perk from you as well after you are all settled in the new place!

    Just really happy for you two and proud of how far you’ve come. Congratulations on the studio! :)

    Greeting from COLOMBIA!

  159. Congratulations! I feel so happy for you both!~ It looks like a glorious place for rainbows and unicorns and everything. The brick wall/soundproof doors had my instant love and gives you +123 to hipsterness which is a totally rad thing.

    Please promise you’ll install a coffee/tea machine there. That would be mandatory magic mana potion.

  160. Guys I cannot express how excited I am with all this.

    I have to admit, in spite of all your super biased propaganda, I had no plans to visit South Korea until you started talking about your studio. Suddenly I had a reason to go, lol xD
    and even if it isn’t open to visitors I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN AND I WILL FIND YOU

    UCC Studio!!

    POWDER FIRE SAFETY SYSTEM OMG I DON’T EVEN —– *O*

    Studio Hunting Adventure Now Korea = SHANK = homemade knife.
    That was so un-nasty. I was disappointed .__.

    I love how you’re actually considering how easily Kpop Stars can come to visit. It just seems way too surreal for me “Okay now how should I arrange my living room if Epik High were to visit” *NOSEBLEED*

  161. Martina could you please tell me where did you get that cute green sweaterrr… its soooo cute and really suited you well <3

  162. Ii is great that you have found a place for it, also are you going to pull the pictures up of the people who contributed to this as well? :)

  163. Omg!! So happy & excited for you guys!! =D

  164. Simon and Martina, I am so glad for you guys! The place looks wonderfull!
    I can’t wait to see the studio all ready

  165. OMG! OMG! It’s here! You found it!!! YAY!!!! (and somehow I can totally picture Big Bang coming in all swag and ready for their interview by EYK)

  166. hongdae area is one of the most expensive to rent sth like a studio….. so much demands for musicians, artists, players, blahblahblah…. one thing that I’m curious about is, how did you guys communicate with that estate agent? hope somebody helped you translate and understand.. and that soju ‘처음처럼’ is a bit bitter and harder than ‘참이슬chamyiseul’. proper romanisation???? anyhow 참이슬 fresh is better….. :p give me a chance. hehe

  167. Wow, nice office! Eeee, so excited for you!

  168. i wish i could help with your studio! i live in Korea as well but oh well congrats maybe someday i can find you guys ʘ‿ʘ <– creepy smile

  169. Congrats, y’all – seems like a great space!

  170. OMG!!! Congratulations it looks amazing even in its empty shell stage, i simply cannot wait to see how it progresses :D

  171. Ahhhh I’m so happy for you guise!!! And I’m also so happy that we Nasties made this possible for you! We are the best fan club (??) Everrr~~!

  172. Finally! Congrats guys! Now, it’s time to find your crew. Who is the lucky person to be the part of the Nastys family? :)

  173. You guys are soooooo awesome!!!! I have a dream on wanting to work with you guys on the video-editing-work but sadly, I’m not from Korea. :(
