We were just in Seoul for the YouTube Pop Up Studio Space event for a couple of days, and, boy, was it ever eventful. For starters, we got our One Million Subscriber button! Well, we didn’t really get it. They gave it to us, and then we had to give it back, because it’s too big for us to transport in our luggage, so they’re going to mail it to us. But we touched it at least!
Otherwise, we also got to filming a couple of videos in the YouTube Pop Up Studio Space. We got together with 4MAD, who are best known for their time on Gag Concert in Korea. We thought they’d be able to teach us a couple of drinking games, so we all got together to film this video. KIMCHI ROYALE!
We had a lot of fun filming this. Interestingly, the people running this space were Zanybros, the same people who do lots of 4Minute and Super Junior videos. We were thrilled to work with them, finally, and they were nice enough to bring our least favourite prop of all: Flaxton Street. Ha! Oh, the memories.
Anyhow, we learned a few new games to play. Sexy 369 is great, as was the Apartment game. They also taught us another game which I don’t know how to spell: Jangigi? I just heard them say it. It’s done with shot glasses, and you’re supposed to tap your glass on the table. One tap moves it forward in the circle, two taps reverses the order. Oh, and clothes hanger bowling. I don’t know how you win at that one. There seem to be only losers in that game.
Side note: we were part of another video, but unintentionally. The night before this video, we were looking for a friend who we were told was on set of another video being filmed: Buzzbean was filming a drinking video with Ahn Young-mi from SNL. When they saw us, they demanded we take part in that video, which isn’t up yet, but as soon as it is we’ll share it. The results of that video were also quite intense.
Altogether, we had a blast. We’ve got some extra scenes if you’d like to have an extra chuckle or two. 4MAD were a lot of fun :D
