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…

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

  2. 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.

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

    ♥♥♥♥

    P.S: love the antique knobs!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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 ^^

  13. Was your intern editing when you filmed the livestream? Or what was she doing ?
    OMMMMMMG LOVE THE “EAT YOUR KIMCHI NASTYY STUDIO” signnnnn ! :D
    Annnnd, eeer is that an iPad mini ?

  14. 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!!!

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

  16. 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.

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

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

  19. 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^)/

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

  21. 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

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

    *DROWNING IN FEELS*

    • 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*

  23. 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 :)

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

  25. 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……

  26. 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

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

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

  29. 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.

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

  31. 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.

  32. 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?

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