Woohoo! It’s finally here! Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce to you the Eatyourkimchi (Nasty) Studio! It’s not totally finished, but we’re too damn excited to wait any longer. The filming must begin immediately!!!!

It’s taken a while to get here. We started our fundraiser early September. We we totally blown away with everyone’s overwhelming support and how our goal was almost tripled. TRIPLED! It took a while for the fundraiser to finish, though, and a bit longer for the funds to actually make it to Korea, but as soon as it did, we started hunting for our studio right away, and once we found it we started building it right afterwards and designing it on the spot as well. As soon as it was semi-presentable, we started filming in it with the EYKAs. Now, it’s 90% done, and we’re ready to show you where all of your money has gone!

(PS, I realize how many links were in that last post. We normally don’t link bomb like that, but we wanted to show you the outline of the whole process, especially if you’re new to the Eatyourkimchi family! We promise not to put in that many links again!).

So here it is! The studio is done-ish! We’re here everyday, working in it, filming, planning new things, preparing our staff, developing a new workflow, and just brainstorming ideas for the future. Yes, it is where we work now, and it’s not our home, but we did our absolute best to make this place as homely as possible. We don’t want a sterile work environment. We want something fun and homely, cozy, and funky, nothing like a traditional studio or office. We don’t want fake set rooms with non-functional kitchens that are used just for show, we want a real live place with a super positive vibe to it so that anyone we hire loves waking up and coming to work. The Eatyourkimchi Crew will be so happy and chipper with each other it will make you vomit rainbows and we all link hands and skip down the street filming together. We need a plethora of matching clothing! IT WILL HAPPEN!!!

Also, one thing that we never want to forget is how important you Nasties are to us. This studio would not exist if it wasn’t for you. We will never forget that, EVAR!!! You guise made this studio happen for us. We want to make videos for you. We included you in our sign outside the building. Check it:

Eat Your Kimchi Studio Sign

Note: we didn’t want to just call it Nasty Studios because it sounds like a place to make pornoz. We don’t make pornoz.

Also, one of the most important parts of the studio is the Nasty Wall of Fame. We had the wall designed to have the names of all of the people who donated to the fundraiser. We see it every day. We’ll always remember it. In a special, cheesy kind of way, you guise are the wall holding up the studio. Does that sound lame? Don’t laugh at us. We’re sentimental! *Martina and Simon run away crying* We’re just really thankful for all that you’ve done for us, for getting this studio for us, and we want you to know how thankful we are.

Thanks guise. We love you Nasties, and we’re gonna work so hard to try to do more and do better. Thank you for being there with us. GROUP HUG!!!! Hey…who’s touching my butt…

  1. So… can anyone explain the evil door to me?

  2. Hi Simon and Martina, I just want to start by saying I LOVE your videos! You guys are soo hilarious and genuine! But I’m confused about why you named your studio “Nasty,” and why do you call fans that you encounter “Nasty?” Is it an acronym? Does it have a background story, like SONES? Thank you!

  3. yanagiba yusuke22

    tell us abt the haunted room….im so curious yeahhhh…………

  4. just thought i should share this with you ! lmafo

  5. Amazing studio Guys!! is your studio open to the public for visits and stuff??

  6. OMGEEE how do you get the luck of getting a studio next to (i think) teddys cafe, IMMM SOOO JEELLLY. You guys gotta get interviews from all the yg and other idols going in there.

  7. Wow studio looks great ! Wish you the best of luck ! AND PLEASE MORE AWESOME VIDEOS !

  8. So, is that one room haunted or something? You say something scary happens every time someone goes into it, and thats the first thing I can think of >.<
    But oh my god! I feel sooo excited for you guys! Get to have your own company studio and even have an employee, and different rooms for different things, and its just soo awesome :D Can't wait to see how it looks with the furniture and other stuff to fill up the space :)
    You guys have worked sooo hard for this moment to come and you so deserve it! :D

  9. I donated to you guys and I wanted the Polaroid thingy cuz I donated like 25.00 I think but I never got a Polaroid :’(

  10. Is the Open The Happy room actually used for anything?

  11. Love You Guys sooo much!!! You studio was worth every penny. And although I’m stunned and happy and thankful that two made that wall of fame for everyone…I feel really bad because my roommate and I sent our donation in jointly. I made the account so only my name appears.

    She claims that he 20 dollars went towards the robot Spudgy on your wall and that’s her mark.

  12. i almost cried when i saw the nasty wall of fame. i love you guys so much and im so happy i was able to make a contribution towards such an amazing place.

  13. Taemin NEEEEDS to wear that hat. And the anticipation of the haunted room is killing me…. NARNIA?? :D
    Your studio is awesome and I hope one day I’ll get to visit :) I only wish I could have donated money… I’ll slip you some coins when I visit ehe.

  14. I’m excited about Leigh, as she seems pretty chill. But I thought you guys couldn’t hire a “foreigner” until you hired 5(?) Korean employees first? Or is she considered a Korean citizen? just curious c:

  15. also, you guys are looking fantastic. damn u dropped those lbs really quick!

  16. hey are you guys hiring??? or finished hiring??

  17. …Who needs matching pajamas? If anything, those animal onsies you two danced in pjs? She needs her own animal onsie!

  18. Congratulations on your new studio. For some reason, I feel so proud.

  19. Oh, I forgot to mention that hour-long EYK stuff is THE BEST, and I adore watching stuff like this, and to be able to spend a bunch of time watching you guys just casually. ^_^ I’m just chilling at a Starbucks and trying to get away from normal real life, and this cheered me up for a NICE LONG TIME! :D

    The studio sign is amaaaaaaazing~!

  20. The wall of fame. ;_; So wonderful.

    I found out about the fundraiser about a week after it closed, so I am not on there, but it is SO SWEET and symbolic and WONDERFUL.

  21. If they sell space heaters in Korea, and if the bathroom has an outlet, you could put one in the bathroom to make it less cold :D we have one in our kitchen, which gets SUPER cold in the winter because there are great big windows and really crappy insulation under the floor… it doesn’t actually heat up the entire space because our entire main level, including the kitchen, is really open, but in a small enclosed space like the bathroom it could really make a difference. No more peeing in the cold!!

  22. So I hate to be “that commenter,” but the word you’re looking for is “homey”–meaning like a home, or cozy. “Homely” means plain and unattractive.

    Also, do you post somewhere on this site about when live chats are going to be? If so, where is it? And if not, could you please? It’s so easy to miss the posts about it when they’re only on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

    And last, the studio looks fantastic!!! I can’t believe you actually put “Nasty” on the huge sign out front! :-)

  23. You should film reality TV show segments in your studio (Family Outing, Heroes, Happy Together) even with random people you invite from the street. That would be so funny. Great studio! Keep up the good work.

  24. Congratulations Simon and Martina!!! Its been amazing to watch how Eat Your Kimchi has expanded into its very own start-up. Can’t wait to see how it all evolves.

  25. SImon and Martina! Congrats on your new studio! it looks amazing especially with “Nasty” on it!! :D do you allow visitors to come by at your studio?

  26. Let me start off by saying how proud I am of you two. All of us fans donated knowing that something magical was going to happen, and I’m sure I speak for everyone by saying you never disappoint. And also, thank you for being so open about this whole process. Your transparency not only lets us know how our support is creating awesome realities, but it also lets us get a behind the scenes peek at all of the work you guys do, how hard it is to create such awesome videos, and all of your marvelous plans for the future. So, thanks Simon and Martina, for making such awesome videos, and for showing us that life is what you make of it, and always remember to have fun.

    On a side note, this video reminds me that I’m still eagerly awaiting that EYK polaroid from the fundraiser, haha. I’m just messing with you. I would’ve donated even if there was no “perk”. Simon and Martina FIGHTING!

  27. Ive only been following EYK since August but i went back and watched all the kpop music modays ect. and i already miss the old bucheon kpop music mondays :/ excited for the new studio though

  28. The studio looks so great! So happy for you guys! :D

  29. Guys… really… REALLY… that’s the sweetest gesture ever… I’m sure that every single Nasty that donated it’s in tears right now watching that. Really… it’s so amazing.

  30. I would love to work at EYK Studios ^^

  31. I wanted to see LEE. whats lee’s full name?

  32. Intern Leigh was my favorite part of stream. INTERN LEIGH!!!! (im your fan.)

  33. i love the studio! can’t wait to see an interview done there :)

  34. I have the idea for those multiple frames… [I hope i was original enough with this idea]

    Taking pictures of you celeb guest and putting them in as a memory. Or just the important ones and stick the rest in a box~. B-]

    P.S. Let no one touch that hat but TaeMin~. Pwease~~~!
    p.s.s. I would love to see you make some celeb climb that wall in the hall!!
    p.s.s.s. I love youu~.

  35. Hey you guys should get some throw blankets made, like fluffy ones with EYK on them for when you interview female idols because i’ve noticed they always cover their legs when they sit down for interviews. And you can put them in a storage ottoman and use them for snuggles when idols aren’t around.
    Also if you put the Flaxton street sign up properly you can film stuff with that as a background, even when idols come by they can do an intro video against it or something before moving to the interview.
    Also one last suggestion maybe you can have the autographs of people you interview in the empty picture frames! Or pictures of you and them, for special memories.
    One day I shall come to the studio and find my name… I hope its not up high because i’m short…

    EDIT: I just realized… is the building YG bought nearby the cafe Teddy is opening? Twosome+ Studio?

    • The blankets are a really good idea. Female idols need them on talk shows for when they sit down because they’re usually wearing short skirts or dresses. As a girl who has tried to sit comfortably in a dress that is on the shorter side, I fully support this idea.

  36. The studio looks super amazing! A much more exciting environment to be in than where I work LOL Can’t wait until you invite guests to the Nasty Studio for interviews :)

  37. That was great and I love the studio, but you didn’t finish with the kitchen and I want to know what is so weird about the window?

  38. I actually follow the Tumblr of one of the girls who stopped you walking Spudgy. She posted pictures. It’s like I know someone who knows someone.

  39. Yeah blue and green kitchen! I love that color combination, everytime I find a hoodie or shirt w/ both of those colors I have to buy it because it’s kind of rare.

  40. Lots of Michiganders, woot!

  41. OMG!! I have the same earings as martina!

  42. I go to USC! Trojans represent! :)

  43. I’m so happy that it is all finished and looks fabulous!

  44. xD it looks awesome! i really want to know about that secret haunted room you guys have haha ^^

  45. I loooooooooooove your studio and the Nasty Wall made me feel so honoured and loved, it is such a nice and creative thought.

  46. I wanna try and find your studio when I visit my family in Korea in March. So ever going to do another how to dance kpop?

  47. I’m so happy!!!! I want to vomit rainbows too!! and I’m so happy I’m part of this too =) Now I’ll buy a tshirt jajaj =)

  48. bigbangfosho

    I’m so excited and happy for you guys. There’s so much potential for future videos ahhhh!! I’m so happy that you guys can relax and make super awesome videos!

    And alskdjfwaket idols meeting Spudgy and Meemers. I remember Kevin saying he wanted to see Spudgy. Maybe that will happen.

  49. Although I love the idea of including your fans in your sign, and I’m a fan of yours too, really, I don’t know if the word “Nasty” pointing to the word “Kimchi” will go well with Korean citizens/netizens that aren’t particular fans of yours and can read and understand even that little bit of English. I’m not saying this out of hate, but out of worry for you guys since it could be blown out of proportion and cause you problems. I really do wish you all this success that you rightfully deserve. :3

    (I’m not sure if this has been pointed out before. ><)

  50. Congratulations on the new studio. The first EYK video I watched was the Korean Convenience Store Raid and now EYK is on the side of the building. It’s been amazing to see two jet-lagged Canadians go from English teachers to entertainment moguls. I pray for your continued success.

    p.s. The live youtube reveal was much better then the old program.

  51. Can I work for u guys as well? I also want to work in my PJs. :3

  52. Somewhere , there was a comment from a user who mentioned idols first reactions to the studio…It would be fun to see their first reactions xD *lol* hidden-camera style xD

    anyways, I like the studio, especially the ” nasty wall of fame ” ^-^

  53. OMG I saw NB2 across the street! YG owns that! You guys might run into YG family if you go walking around at night. :)

  54. Arli.

    Make a cute calendar for us so we know when to visit and when your going to stream ahead of time. Also LOVE your studio so happy for you guys!

  55. First of all I’m really happy for both of you, I hope you can keep on making such awesome material for a really long time :3 *hugs and climbs to you both like a koala*

    About the frames, I think putting the signatures of the artists who come to the studio would be nice, also you could add additionally (and outside those frames) polaroids or something of the like, they always give a good effect.

    By the way, it would be funny to get all the artists you get on a fun photo. Like making them pose silly and then hanging those pictures. Because let’s face it, corniness is the NASTY haha.

    Oh! and please post a picture of the sofas when they get there. If they’re in nasty studios they’ll rock!

  56. Oh my gosh that was so freaking exciting and awesome your studio!! I can’t wait to see U-kiss, Shinee, Big Bang etc coming there! :D Your intern is really cute it’s nice to see that you have created a nice homy company environment. EYK fighting!! <3

  57. I wanna see idols/visitors reactions to the studio! xD Nasties 4 LYF! xD

  58. Wow, actually when you did the video about making your studio, It made me feel like the room next to the kitchen (the soundproof room) suppose to be much smaller than it is! But now when I see it, its huuuugeee O.O

  59. kawaii_candie

    aww… the nasty wall is really cool and sweet!!! my name’s on there somewhere! ^_^ I’m so gonna come visit you to find my name on the wall! lol.

    and the sign outside the building is soooo cool as well!

  60. That’s so cool! I’m so proud of you and of everyone of us who made this happen! ^o^ ♥

  61. It would be really cool if you filled the empty frames on that wall with pictures of you and the kpop groups you interview !!! ☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆

  62. If you ever interview SHINee, you need to make sure Taemin wears that soy un dorita hat.

  63. I’m so happy to see the studio! And I’m happy for you guise being happy with the studio! And for Leigh working in her pajamas and fluffy slippers :D It all looks so cozy and energizing and makes me want to finish each sentence with an exclamation mark! Yay! And lastly, I’m sooo happy to know that my name is somewhere on the Nasty Wall of Fame :) Yaay!

  64. That’s almost like my dream work place xD haha, but I still have a few years more ahead of me x3
    It looks really fun & cool to work at a place like that, it’s written all over ms. Lee’s face xD hhhh
    Fighting you guys~ ^^

  65. Will you take a picture of the nasty wall so we can see our names?

  66. That’s almost like my dream work place xD haha, but I still have a few years more ahead of me x3
    It would be really cool to work at a place like that, it’s written all over ms. Lee’s face xD hhhh
    Fighting you guys~ ^^

  67. you guys I’m so proud of you

  68. WOw… I mean wooooow the studio is amazing! I hope you guys can spend alot of fun time over their since it’s your second home! The stickers with roomnames are just awesome!! I’m a little bit curiouss but h-what are you going to do with the magnentic wall room? P.S.: Isn’t YG office also in Hongdae?! TOP so close:)

  69. I study at Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław, Poland and we have here HUUUUGE numbers written on doors almost the same way as the names of rooms in your studio:D Walking through corridors is gonna be more fun from now onxD
    I am seriously amazed by the studio and how much effort you put into it, you guys rock!

  70. PunkyPrincess92

    oh my gosh the studio is awesome!!!!!!
    i love it so much!!!! and ooohhhh so curious about that haunted door!!!
    i love the random rock climbing wall outside!!! it’s so weird but cool!!!

    you totally gotta interview SHINee one day and wear that hat Simon with the wig and also make Taemin wear that hat!!
    also there are white Koala’s cos Taemin voiced it in an animated movie called Koala Kid and his character was the white Koala…and i just had to check if they existed!

  71. “So here it is! The studio is done-ish! We’re here everyday, working in it, filming, planning new things, preparing our staff, developing a new workflow, and just brainstorming ideas for the future. Yes, it is where we work now, and it’s not our home, but we did our absolute best to make this place as homely as possible. ” Well you guise (and the people who helped constructing/designing it) did an amazing job! *_____* It looks very cozy and warm!!


    P.S: love the antique knobs!

  72. Man, I really wish I had started to follow you guys a lot earlier! Not only because it would have been really nice to have known you all the way, but in a selfish way I wish I could have donated so that my name was listed there :P Awesome studio, with awesome people!

  73. Yey! The studio looks awesome. I love the Get Naked Room ( with Taemin Hat) as well as the Open the Happy room with the EYK family robots. Everything is adorable including the freezing checkered bathroom. And the Nasty Foundation wall made me tear up. I wonder if I could find my name on it if I got a chance to visit.

    Watching this video made me feel all warm and fuzzy. I want to wear fuzzy slippers and pajamas with you guise!

    Edit: Just thought of the horror or unheated toilet seats in a freezing toilet. Brrr. Is it possible to get heated toilet seats? Or a small heater in the toilet that you can turn on and off when you are using the room?

    edit2: Ah, saw that fuuko asked the same question about heat in the toilet.

  74. I have few questions: is the eatyourkimchi crew grow? Now that you have the studio…. why have such big home? and I had a question (why have two places when the studio nearly have everything) but I realize that, including the beds and the toilet, it’s better to have two separate places, one to work and another to live.

    I love how are you doing everything!
    And we love you!

  75. I was out last night wandering Hongdae with some friends. We had no clue where we were other than we were trying to find some good clubs. Lo and behold! I discover your studio!!! It was the cherry on top of an already amazing night.

  76. Who’s touching your butt? Hint, we all are.

  77. I saw noise basement outside your window. The second one. Yg owns both of them, and they’re really awesome club’s. I heard Yg was buying another building. Don’t know what for though, maybe a café? Yg seems to REALLY like Hongdae, aren’t their headquarters in hongdae while like SM, JYP, cube and all that in more rich Seoul.

  78. I wasn’t able to see it live because it was like 5 in the morning when
    you did the livestream. I really like your videos but i could never get
    up this early in the morning -.-
    Your studio looks amazing :) i’m really excited to see more videos filmed in there.
    The little kitchen looks so adorable with all it bright colours and I love that you now have your own mr brohoho brick wall :D
    In your fundraiser video Martina said that if you were able to hire an editor you would like to do new segments like the dramasegment. Are you still planning on doing sth like that. ? You’re posting a lot of videos so I’d understanf if you don’t have time for this but i’d really like to see you talking about kdrama or kmovies :)
    And I love the Junsu banana :D it looks so cute ^^

  79. i am really crying when i saw the nasty wall!! maybe one day i can find my name there! frighting EYK!!!

  80. It is so awesome to see how this studio has developed <3
    Eatyourkimchi 4 life :)

    I'll be going to Korea in September or October for one month, I'd be thrilled if I could get the chance to see the EYK studio and you guise live :D (and maybe search my name on the wall xD)

    Idols will be loving your studio, that's for sure!

    Today's livestream was awesome :) Thank you for taking the time to show us around ^^

    The quality of the video was better than last time, but I experienced some other odd issues: It absolutely refused working with Windows XP (maybe the netbook couldn't cope with it), I had to use my Laptop with Windows 7 – and once again, Germany blocked it (saying: This is not available in your country) – which lead to the use of google chrome and proxtube again (Proxtube only unlocks blocked stuff on youtube, it is not an adblocker by the way :) )
    Did anyone else from Germany face the same problems?

    I am so happy for you and just wanted to say thanks for your hard work :) *hugs eyk crew*

    • I’m starting to feel like we don’t have freedom of information in Germany anymore, what the hell is wrong with whoever blocks all that stuff on youtube! I mean it couldn’t have been GEMA this time, or are they afraid that someone might play music on the live stream, so they block it just in case? I had to use a proxy workaround, too, grrrr

      thanks for showing us the studio!

      suggestion for the frames: when you interview people, put embarrassing photos of them in the frames :P

  81. Was your intern editing when you filmed the livestream? Or what was she doing ?
    Annnnd, eeer is that an iPad mini ?

  82. Love you guys and I’m so happy for you. I can’t wait to visit your studio in Korea when I visit! Hoping for the best and this NASTY will continue to support you until whenever. (It’s a + how YG bought thouse buildings nearby. lol)

  83. It was 5 in the morning in France and I’m going back to school on Monday. So I couldn’t wake up to see it live bouh! Because I didn’t finish all my homework so I needed to sleep early and wake up “early”^^ But I looooove the EYK nasty studio! So happy to be a nasty :) And you know what? After I graduate I wanna be a lawyer. Maybe the EYKs one, haha! :D

  84. omg the studio looks awesome! :’D I can’t wait for the first kpop group to walk through it’s halls!! :D

    one thing I wanted to ask, since you’ll be interviewing idols there what if someone had a fur allergy or something? because since spudgy and meemers will be running around in there and leaving fur unless they are very well groomed? I know for a fact that MBLAQ has two or three members with a fur allergies, hence their reptile pets (omg they have an alligator, a lizard and snake O.O) so I was wondering if when you ask for an interview or they contact you first if you’ll be asking, “yeah, uh we have furry pets over here does anyone have allergies?”

    • That is a really good point. Very thoughtful. Also I know some people just don’t like cats or dogs. I know… How is this possible? But yes, it is. One of my friends is terrified of dogs, no matter how small, cute or friendly. She has panic attacks when they are near.

    • I have fur allergies, and usually a simple allergy pill is enough to stave it off if it’s just for a few hours. Even if you don’t have meds, for most people with allergies it’s fine as long as you don’t stay there too long and don’t get near the animal. There was one time I picked up a South African cat though, and I could swear I felt my lungs seizing up.

  85. wow I see my name…nasty foundation =) love the symbolism guys!!

  86. You guys should put a ‘Max Time’ label next to your light switch!

  87. SIMON! MARTINA! You guys need these in stock for all the Nasties who come to visit the studio!!!


    It’s hand sanitizer that says “You Nasty!” :D

  88. When you went to the kitchen and pointed at the water filtration thingy~ I was like “2PM!!! coooowaaayyyyy~!!!!!” I wasn’t even sure if twas the exact name!
    AHAHAHAHA! Good times!!!

  89. thisisjustforfunval

    Considering boy bands have a thousand members each, two urinals in your restroom will come in very handy. ;)

  90. So wonderful! Love the whole design of the studio and you guys are just so NASTY!! :D

  91. Yay!!! The studio looks great!!! I got all squishy inside when you described the wall of names!!!! Thanks for making the studio a reality!!! Yay for EYK!!! One day I’m going to come to Korea and find mine. I really like the empty frames actually. It could be nice to have some of them with two colours – like a band of a different blue around or inside them to make them look a little bigger/have more 3D-ness.

  92. Awwwww I can’t wait to see all of the future EatYourKimchi videos in your awesome nasty studio!!! Congrats Simon and Martina!! :D eeeeeeeeeeppppp so much excitement!!!! ^.^

  93. If you ever interview SHINee, please make Taemin where your hat, Simon. That would be the epitome of my kpop idol life! I really hope you do more awesome interviews though and you get more famous among the kpop idols. One day, they’ll all be calling you wanting to schedule an interview in the “Nasty” Studio!

  94. I was really excited watching this video! Wish I could fly to Korea and see the studio! Anyways an idea for a bare wall in the studio is that; you could take photos or polaroids with Kpop idols/artists that you interview, get them to sign it and hang them on a thread with small wooden pegs. Not really an original idea but hey hehe
    Can’t wait to see new videos filmed in the studio ~

  95. When I visit Korea, I will visit the Nasty studio and spend hours trying to find my name on the Nasty Wall of Fame. It is now a life goal of mine. I’m gonna make it happen <3

  96. hey congrats on your studio done! btw what’s that twitter client you are using on your iPad?

  97. “We don’t make pornoz.”
    *looks at Simon’s sexy dancing*
    Yeah riggggght! LOL!

  98. I hope one day, a few years from now, I can get a job with you guys. :P *crosses fingers*

  99. The place looks so amazing! However. . .homely? Guise, that looks anything but ‘homely’. It looks awesome. Of course, I’ve always thought ‘homely’ to mean ‘unattractive in appearance,’ but I’m often wrong. You meant homey, right? Not as in the Clown, but comfortable and awesomely cozy and I’m rambling. LITERACY FOR LYFE!

    And I LURV that you guise actually put ‘nasty’ on the sign! NASTIES FOR LYFE!

    BTW – the T-shirt artwork has to be my favorite part because it’s something I always look forward to on each video. Spudgy voice in my head is all ‘What are Simon and Martina representin’ today?’

  100. How far away is the studio from your home??

  101. So.. Beautiful T-T

  102. Alright, now that I’ve finished mopping up all my tears –

    - I love the room names you gave. The stencil-ish design looks almost as if someone was projecting the writing onto the wall, like the Batman light? It’s so cool!!

    - I My Me Mine!!! I LOOOVE old school 4minute!! (before they became Hyuna + backup dancers :p

    - It’s so great to finally see Leigh (?) after hearing so much about her :D Leigh (?), if you’re reading this, YOU’RE AWESOME!!! I could see a big jump in editing quality and diversity ever since you started working (was it the make-up place WANK?), and it makes EYK videos so much more unique and original. Thank you :D :D

    - Aaaah I remember those Tshirt canvases. I love, LOVE the robots!! Such a creative way of decorating ugly power switches :p Actually, all the decorations look very modern and yet homely (does that make sense?). I see what you meant when you said you were inspired by the YouTube office, cos that place is damn cool :D Remember when MBLAQ played with the YouTube stuff? Maybe one day celebs will be spazzing over your decorations too :D

    - I want to see Taemin wearing that hat. MAKE IT HAPPEN.

    - About visiting the studio, what if you make every second Friday a visiting day? I mean, you’re gonna get a loooot of visitors. If your ‘visit days’ are too few and far in between, people will try to hang out around the studio just to meet you. That would impend your work yea? Or more importantly, you’d have to stay in ‘social mode’ all the time :/ Everybody needs alone time – I know I do.

    - It would be nice if you had some potted plants in your studio, or in the hallway.

    - Could you perhaps reduce the height of the table? It’s not good for you if the height is awkward…

    - OMG it’s my nuts! ;p Oh oh this just gave me an idea; can you give food to celebs who come for interviews? Does that mean you can feed them the cool international snacks that people send you? :D

    - COWAY!!! Hahahahaha!! Oh btw, for those who don’t get the reference, here’s 2PM’s Coway commercial that they talked about before: http://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLE96DDC73485CC38F&feature=player_embedded&v=o3J9iKwNSNM

    - You started saying something about the kitchen window, and then got cut off….what about it? TELL ME ABOUT THE KITCHEN WINDOW NAAAOOOO I’m so curious yea!!

    - I love it how both of you are so awkward when the other person leaves :p Nawwww

    - Magnetic wall!!!! it’s like a giant fridge door!!! I WANT ONE!!! ~(*O*)~

    - Maybe you should invest in heating the bathroom? Cold bathrooms suck :S (although it’s hard to imagine when it’s almost 40 degrees where I am lol)

    - Hehehe remember when you were looking at a studio near YG’s office? But now it’s ok, because YG has come to youuuuu~~ MWAHAHAHA!!! FYI, I actually really like your YG bias. Don’t mind the haters, let out your inner YG stan(s), and go bumslap all your YG neighbours!!! BWAAHAHAHA *evil laugh*

    - Martina, you look beautiful. Please marry me m(_ _)m

    Anyway, it’s a great, great studio. I never thought this would ever happen. I really thought you’d just stay in Korea for a year or two and then move on to Japan. I was really looking forward to eatyoursushi.com, so when you first brought up this studio thing, I was actually slightly disappointed ^^;

    But now that it’s reached this point, I’m so proud of you >_< You've come so far, become so famous, while staying the same sweet down-to-earth personalities that I love so much. I will definitely have to visit Korea at this rate – can't wait to snuggle up to Spudgy and drool over your amazing studio!! (^o^)/

    • Ok, lots of points to answer. Let me try:

      1) We’re not sure about how to invite people to the studio yet. We’re really trying to catch up to our video schedule and get things done on time, and we’re really working here just about every day for 10 hours. I’d imagine in the future we can have people come by, but for now we’re swamped!

      2) We definitely agree to needing some plants. We just want to make sure we don’t go over the studio developing budget first, so we’re waiting on everything else to be finished.

      3) The table’s height is not reduceable. The height’s good for most people, while for those of us who are taller we have elevated thingies to elevate the laptops.

      4) The kitchen window will be explained one day :D

      5) Bathroom heating isn’t possible, because it’s part of the building and not part of our studio. Or something. The laws and rules are fishy…


      • oh, leaving us hanging again huh? :p Very well, I shall patiently wait for you to reveal the kitchen window, together with Top’s confinement room.

        And I meant the round white table, not the wooden workstation ^^;

      • Ah I see here that fuuko had the same suggestion about the cold bathroom. Yes I sort of thought that maybe there might be an issue with putting a heater in that room. I guess I understand but omg, cold toilet seat, not fun. I know that sometimes people put those soft toilet seat things that are cushy… And maybe those would not be as cold. And some toilets have heated seats.

      • You can buy plug in radiators so maybe if you buy one you could plug it in your loo-room unless you have no sockets in your loo-room. Actually, this christmas, my grandparents boiler went all wonky and so they bought one and it was great!

    • Ewww YG stans!

  103. I squealed when I saw the sign with the ”NASTY” in it. I was like; ”OH THE SIGN THE SIGN THE SIGN o>v<o'' I'm SO happy and proud of you guise. it's AMAZING! I feel like *crying*. To have come all this way- WOW – It's 2013 – NEW CHAPTER BEGINS!!! GO GO GO!!! EYK HWAITING!!!

  104. Leigh is beautiful! I hope to see her in eyk videos soon! ^_^

  105. Love the new studio! Catching up on Coffee Prince. Its like the guys are stalkers, they seem to follow the girls. Weird anyone else notice that?

  106. oooo please tell: where’d you get that table of awesomeness in the studio?! standing workstations are so hard to find and that one is zee bestest…

  107. wow thats so awesome. it really would be cool if yg had bought that place. this got me so happy i hugged my computer…

  108. This is my first time commenting even though I’ve been watching your videos for ages. I just wanted to say congrats on getting the studio almost done =] I can’t wait to see all the new videos you are going to be making. Keep up the great work, I’m always looking forward to seeing your videos <3

  109. Love the studio can’t wait for the first kpop music Monday in the new studio and I’m also excited for you guys to do a video explain the haunted room and for the kpop music Monday on I got a boy by girls generation and the msic video actually has a BOY

  110. This is awesome! I love the studio! OOOOOOH you so nasty! I hope that I get to one day come and see your studio in person!

  111. So how many people are going to be on the eatyourkimchi crew?

    • We’re not sure yet. We don’t make millions, so we can hire tons of people. Also, hiring people takes a long time, because we have to get them used to working in our system, which isn’t really a traditional school of business. Our videos are weird, our model is weird, so we can’t spend too much time training too many people, you know?

  112. Now it’s like 8:15am… I’m awake for 2hours. Wasn’t able to see you live but saw the stream now and read this cheesy post…
    I regret nothing. Who needs sleep if you can have two of the most inspiring people in the world?

    I really, really look forward to everything you’ll do and though I was way too slow to donate successful I feel touched by all that graditute.

    I really am excited about the first idols being guests and how they’ll like the studio.
    They better appreciate all the work! (;

    Let’s stay nasty!

  113. I was totally stoked to see this… I’ve been waiting! When you did the EYKAs I freaked because of the studio and got super down when I realized you weren’t showing it all yet! It’s super amazing and I totally love the way it matches everything about you.
    Thank you for the videos and the happy feelz!!

  114. omg i love you guys you make my day with every vid. your the best!

  115. I almost cried when I saw the name of this video :D
    CONGRATULATIONS! So awesome to see people realizing their dreams. Am really excited and looking forward to what the future holds for you guys :)

  116. I hope to be able to visit one day and take a picture next to my name. It makes me so happy to be a part of this experience!

  117. If you don’t make pornoz, then what are Simon’s dance covers? ㅋㅋㅋ

  118. You mentioned the possability of fans that are visiting Korea to be able to visit the studio in the future. Is there any way for this to be able to happen when my wife visits me here in korea in Feb?!? I can promise plenty of great american snacks/food/goodies from the army base commisary!

  119. I’m sorry, I have nothing to say.


    • FYI, we brought your nuts to the studio. We ate them on camera yesterday!

      • HAHAHAHA I saw I saw!!! Thank you so much, it was amazing seeing something that I sent featuring in one of your videos. I saw the nuts in the kitchen too hehehe :D They’re good aren’t they? :D I think I wrote on the note that you can share it with the crew too – if there’s any left!!

        You have no idea how much I was resisting the urge to squeal out “OMG IT’S MY NUTS!!!”

        – because I am a girl. *shy*

  120. Love the studio, so much fun is going to happen there, and need a wall for all the photos you will get from kpop artist that you will be interviewing, good job and proud of you guys, thanks again :)

  121. What about the scary door? I NEED DETAILS!!!

  122. This is absolutely incredible! I’ve only been following EYK for about 2 months now, but it’s been great reading about and seeing the progress you’ve made over the past few years! You both are so inspiring! I’m not sure if you’ll see this comment and be able to respond, but I do have a few questions!

    1. I know you mentioned that Spudgy will come to the studio with you on long days, but what about Meemers?

    2. Do you think you’ll ever make videos out of your home again or is it only the studio from now on?

    3. How did you find your intern?

    Finally, may I suggest pastel pants for the skipping-down-the-street-holding-hands-matching-clothing event? It only seems appropriate that your pants match the colors of our rainbow-vomit.

    • Initially they were concerned that Meemers would find a small hole/corner in the Studio and get stuck or not come out. Maybe we’ll see Meemers there one day, but for the moment I think it’ll be Spudgy’s territory XD

    • 1. We’re not sure about Meemers yet, because we don’t want Meemers finding a hole and getting stuck in it. Once we’re sure everything’s secure here, we’d love to bring him by!

      2. Most of the videos will be in our studio, but I can see us doing occasional Open the Happy videos at home and aroudn our home. We just won’t have the full video/audio/lighting rig set up at home, because it took up far too much space, and we’re just happy to have a place that we live in to relax, rather than living in the place where we work.

      3. She emailed us a phenomenal email. We met up with her and talked, and she’s awesome.


  123. I’m so excited for your ‘tours’! If you set up a certain date available for us to see your studio in the future I will certainly come! Now who will be the designated tour guide? Dr. Meemersworth or Spudgy? hmmmmm……

  124. That sign is the shizzz! I love it! And the studio looks amazing – so glad I got to see the intro/tour/chat live!
    I just wish my name was on your ‘Nasty Wall of Fame’ – I had no monies when you did the fundraiser. =( But I do watch all of your videos (obviously) with ads and I own an EYK t-shirt (YAY).
    Can’t wait to see more of the awesomeness that is Eat Your Kimchi (Nasty) Studio!

  125. Ahhh, so much warm fuzzies! It’s so exciting to watch Eat Your Kimchi grow. Thank you for sharing all of this process with us and I can’t wait to see what comes next :D

  126. OMG! When I go to Korea I must visit you! I wanna go to college in Korea and be a English teacher! Like you guys were!

  127. Holy crap you got Ogisadesign to do your studio! Wow!

  128. For the frames, you can get the artists to autograph inside the frames as you interview them. Or like something you can take off and move. And then when fangirls visit they can sob on them :3

  129. This literally brought tears to my eyes >< ahhhh nasties for life! Eatyourkimchi for life!! :D I love you guys too!!! :D *returns group hug

  130. I’ve watched the live stream yet I am watching this video again! Can’t get enough of you two!

    oh and also, the studio is flawless! I really really like it. OMG, you guys never fail to impress me.

  131. unicornsgalaxy

    I’m actually excited more to see the reaction of the idols you interview to the studio than I am to see the actual interviews. I can just imagine certain bands running around going “Look at this!” “No, Look at this!”, “OMG there’s Robots!”, “Look at all these names!”, etc.

  132. wow you guise are fast! I LOVED it!!! congrats

  133. AHHHHH!!! it’s so pretty!!

  134. It was a great time for Australians…. lazy Sunday afternoon. Funny when you were talking about it being cold as it’s 30 C here at the moment. Anyway your studio looks great. Do you ever think back to a few years ago and how different your life was then? Did you ever think or hope you’d have your own studio in Korea?

  135. COngrats on the studiooooo!!! Cant wait to see it in person. Much success and keep on doing what u two do!

  136. No, no pornoz, but you do make some pretty awesome Food Porn XD
    Loved the tour of the Studio! Thank you for taking us behind the scenes. All of the little details that went to designing and making the studio are amazing. From the Nasty Wall of Fame to the Robots and the Brick Wall, it is truely an EYK/Nasty Studio.
    All the best in your new studio, keep rocking out the fabulous videos~ THANK YOU for all of your hard work.

  137. hapagirl

    Super happy I was able to catch a good chunk of this. I have a feeling you guys are gonna answer this later or Leigh will, but how did you guys end up getting her to intern with you?

  138. blue cupcakes… makes me think of cookie monster cup cakes!!!

  139. <3 OMG I LOVE YOU GUYS. You guys make me all teary with pride.
    I love the new studio, it’s so wonderful. And I love that ‘NASTY’ studio thing. <3
    Love you so so so much.
    There are SOOO many more Nasties in India, and they all send you their good wishes! All the best Simon and Martina!

  140. How many pictures have you guys had to sign? lol When will you be finished with them?

  141. Love you guise! I’m glad everything is falling into place for you!!

  142. This was a great time for the live chat! Not too early in the morning and not TOO late so I’m glad I got to see this one! I just wanted to say that I think the studio looks amazing and I love what you did with it! The nasty wall is epic and it makes me glad to know that the money I donated went to a great cause and amazing people! :)
