YES! Finally! We’ve wanted to do this video for SUCH A LONG TIME! Our studio opened December 31st, and we’ve had Soo Zee and Leigh coming in since then, but we never got the chance to officially introduce them to you guise. You’ve seen them in the background for some of our videos, and you’ve commented as well, but we never actually told you who they are. So, here’s an introduction of Soo Zee and Leigh, two awesome people that are helping out so so SO much with the Eatyourkimchi Studio, two vital parts of the Eatyourkimchi Crew.

So, let’s talk more about who they are and what they do!

Soo Zee: We met SooZee a long time ago through her sister who was interviewing us for a book. At the time SooZee was still busy with school, but after she graduated we were able to hire her! It’s kind of hard to come up with an appropriate title for her. She’s our everything fixer, if that’s a title or job. Personal Assistant? Business manager? I’m not sure. She does it all. Basically, she handles a lot of the stuff that needs to be handled, but we don’t necessarily have the time to do. For example, when we set up interviews, it’s not as simple as TigerJK calling us up and stopping by. Every artist has a manager. So, Soo Zee acts as our manager and speaks with their managers. Arranges times, prepares them for what we’re going to do, and ensures that everything goes through smoothly. Interviews are really hectic, and there’s so much happening that it’s easy to forget to, say, prepare snacks and drinks for everyone before they come, or remind us all to do the shot of them signing CDs, or whatnot.

Apart from interviews, she also deals with conversations with other businesses that contact us for different things, like interviews with us (rather than us interviewing artists), and different collaborations. Basically, we like being creative and making movies. We’re not business-y people, and don’t want to focus on that. Soo Zee handles that for us.

Not that Soo Zee isn’t creative, though. She’s really freaking artsy. When she graduated from University we attended her final graduation art exhibit and it was freaking awesome. She knows video editing, graphic design, and has been able to help out with that as well. She designed the robots that you saw in our Open the Happy glass door room, for example, and she’s in the process of designing some other cool redesign stuff that we can hopefully reveal soon. Soo Zee’s basically a jack of all trades, and makes our lives a lot easier so we can focus on having fun making movies. Ps-> SooZee has no social networks, so you won’t be able to find her on the internets :D

Intern Leigh: Leigh’s awesome. She’s a video editing superstar. She’s been editing videos since she was in high school, and always knew that she wanted to edit videos. She went to the best university in the USA for video editing. She was a full-time video editor back home, so she KNOWS what she’s doing. Currently Leigh is too busy with her Korean school studies to officially work at Eat Your Kimchi, but because she missed video editing terribly and was concerned her skills were getting rusty, she’s helping us take a load off by editing some of our segments. We’re hoping after she finishes her studies and if she’s still interested (and not weirded out by us) we’ll be able to officially hire her and demolish her Intern status! But until then…INTERN LEIGH!

We, on the other hand, have NO CLUE about video editing! We’ve only been editing videos for the past few years with Eat Your Kimchi. We have no experience with it before. No education. No relevant job experience. We didn’t even study editing online. We’re just winging it! So, with Leigh here, we’re learning so much from her, not just about editing videos, but about film theory, the film industry, how things are done, just…everything! We, on the other hand, are able to teach Leigh about the non-traditional approach to videos and editing via our experiences with YouTube. It’s a win-win situation. She’s done some great work at editing our videos. Some of you have noticed a bump in quality and a slight change in style for some of our videos. For example, that MFBTY interview looks great because of Leigh’s work.

So besides SooZee and Leigh being really great fun people, they also have a really good understanding of our videos and our style, and it is really great for bouncing ideas off of, and also contributes a lot of ideas for future videos and segments.

So…yeah! That’s the basic run down on the two of them!

So, the first video we did with them was just showing how awesome fun they are, and the second video here is SooZee and Leigh answering some of the questions you asked on Facebook, so you can get to know them more. Where they’re from, how are we as bosses, so on and so forth.


It’s not as fun as the first video, which we really had fun doing and laughed our assess off filming. Especially wearing our ugly outfits in public and dancing in busy areas. That was great. Especially since a Nasty walked up to us and asked for a picture as we were filming…IN OUR SUPER UGLY OUTFITS! YARGH!

And there is some deleted footage as well from the first video, if you feel like laughing some more. Leigh and Soo Zee had some difficulty guessing one of our EYK characters. AAAAYYYYOOOOOO!!!!


  1. Intern Leigh is my new fave. Hands down. Thanks for this!

  2. Simon and Martina’s matching outfits>>>>

  3. I have a question for Intern Leigh. You said that you do video editing for EYK, what program do you use? Adobe Premiere? Or is it some other program? I’m a Motion Graphics major (undergrad) and I want to learn more about video editing, since it would definitely help me. Also, since you are going to a university in another country I kinda wanted to pick your brain about that. I want to travel and learn more about other countries and have been thinking about going to another country to study. However, I do want to finish my degree at my current college and then later go to one outside the US. I want to continue my study of art and design and have been looking more towards Korea (and sometimes Japan). I apologize for the random question, but I wanted a perspective of someone who is already involved in what I am interested in. Oh! And I’m from Texas too! (:

    Thank you for taking some time to listen to me.

  4. Is it me or Soo Zee is like the female version of Lee Teuk?

  5. anyone else like “TEEEEEXXXXASSSSSS!”
    no? just me. ok. GO TEXAS!!!

  6. LOL Leigh have “cool” floating above her head whenever i see her now. She’s been doing editing for who knows how long and is expert on it. Being able to do things that you interested in as a job is what I always want.

  7. Love the EYK CREW!!! Intern Leigh & Soo Zee seem like girls I would like to hang out with and talk about life with. lol. I was yelling GD to my laptop during the bloopers! too funny! :)

  8. If you join the eatyourkimchi crew you must leave all pride behind lol

  9. Loved how you introduced them Korean Variety Show Style!

  10. I thought you guys could only hire korean people, how are you gonna hire Intern Leigh if she’s from Texas? Sorry, I’m confused haha

    • I was wondering that too; actually, I was wondering about right now…. I guess since she’s an “intern” they haven’t officially hired her and thus, have not violated any laws. But what happens when they DO wanna officially hire her?

      Ah well, that’d just be a problem to attend to when they get to it.

  11. haha, i love this. this is great! XD i love it!!!! they are great aweesome people! i want to meet you all!!!!!!!!!! SooZee & Intern Leigh is VERY PRETTY! lol, i just have to say INTERN before Leigh, idk why. it’s just a automatic XD i feel like that’s her first name. haha “Intern” but she is great! loved this video!! SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! i’m happy you guys made this video!!!

  12. Liegh and Soo Zee are awesome!! (can’t help feeling jelly though – . – )

    ♥♥ ♥ ♥

    P.S: look what I have found! http://kondoot.com/videos/28ad3deba1e *________* 8>8>8>

  13. This is great! After reading all the things that Soo Zee and Leigh does for EYK, I can’t imagine how you guys handled it all before by yourselves! :) It is also great that Soo Zee can act as a manager and translator…how did you guys arrange to do interviews with artists before without speaking Korean?

  14. Can the EYK crew make a Harlem Shake video? hehehe i wanna see how you do it :D

  15. You can call Soozee your “Executive Assistant”.

  16. so we were all trying to answer the questions too right?
    Thanks to all the EYK crew for the great work!

  17. We still don’t know what groups/bias’s they have! Who do you both like? What sort of music do you listen to? Hey! This is important, it’s how NASTIES can relate!

  18. Intern Leigh is my other half <3

  19. Was that the Monkey Island “Drunken Monkey Kombat” between Soo Zee in Leigh when they did the poses faceoff…if so, I will pee my pants from happiness.

    • ‘Fraid not. It’s one of the Korean versions of Rock-Paper-Scissors. In an old S&M video, the explained the game for us.

      • I figured but held out hope…my sister and I used to do something similar based off of one of our favorite computer games and I know S&M also enjoy video games so I got a little excited that maybe they loved the old LucasArts games from my childhood too. Regardless, this rock-paper-scissors game looks pretty fun to try. I’ve been only following EYK for a year and half now so I must have missed that video. Thanks for letting me know!

  20. Simon looks pretty pimpin’ with his three ladies.

  21. Aah, they’re both so cute and Soo Zee is so pretty! They seem like fun, awesome people ^^

  22. I live in Texas ^^ Houston area! So HI LEIGH!

  23. GDragon was the character I can answer as fast as how Intern leigh answered all the others.. hahaha

    this was awesome!!

  24. ermagawd Leigh is from Texas?! I live in Texas right now but next year I’ll will probably in Korea for the winter to celebrate graduating high school :DD I will find you guys one day >:3

  25. Soo Zee has so much charisma and her reactions were amazing! Loved the chair scene and “I’m the best” part haha. Her knowledge of KPop was evident and I think it’s a good idea to introduce her opinion on a few TL;DR videos at least. Thanks Soo Zee for organising these amazing interviews so far and we are looking forward to more to come! Get (yourself) the UKISS and INFINITE boys in the nasty studio pronto! Oh, and SHINHWA!!!! Pretty please ^ – ^ Or any other band really, we’re not THAT picky :D Oh, the robots design for the ugly electric panel was awesome, well done again!

  26. I thought you had to hire at least five Koreans before you could hire a non-Korean? Or are you hoping/expecting that by the time you can hire Leigh, you will have a need and an ability to support a staff that large?

  27. I am so jealous that they have such a great work environment and fun bosses! So Jealous!!!!!

  28. i love you both Soozee and intern Leigh but Leigh is my Bias :P yay Leigh :P I love Soo Zee also. 사랑해요 :P

  29. Intern Leigh, she is so geeky – you just got to love her! luvluv

  30. You made me laugh so hard with your dance party. You guys seriously have no shame :D



  33. Leigh and Soo-Zee are both beautiful and so talented!
    It’s wonderful to finally see/meet them!
    By the way, Simon and Martina you are terrible people with your punishme-er, “competition”
    Does it make me a terrible person to laugh though? Yes, well at least i’m in good company!


  34. Wow, you seem like such an awesome work crew, with a really friendly atmosphere :D I also like that both Soozee and Leigh seem relaxed on camera, so they can go along with your dorky weirdness which is really fun! Especially since I know I never could do that, haha.
