Ok, so, yes, we did a Samgyeopsal video a while ago. Yes, we know, so you might have already seen something like this…but…but…this is special!

Confession: we go to this place far too often. It’s close to our studio, and it’s freaking delicious. Every time we have dinner after a business meeting we take them here. It’s so good! So, we figured, why not share this awesome place with you guise? Yes, you’ve seen us grill meat before, but this place is really different.

Well, not really THAT different. It’s just the aesthetic and idea that’s cool. It’s supposed to recreate a camping experience. You don’t drink soju out of glass shot glasses, but out of plastic cups. You use wooden chopsticks. You sit in tiny foldable chairs, and when it’s cold outside, you stay close to the fire and wrap yourself in blankets. And you use real charcoal under a grill. Booya! And there’s something about the meat here that we love. The samgyeopsal has a different layer of fat up top. It get’s a lot crispier than other places. Not sure why. Is it, like, pig skin that’s crisping up? Who knows, but that extra bit of crunchiness with every bite is just BOOYAKA!

We also never really had a grilling experience in which we had to care for the meat so thoroughly. Once the flames start licking, you gotta move your meat away quickly, or else it’ll burn. We rarely see fire go up so high in grilling places. We like it! Makes it feel more, cavemanly, you know? Also, there’ve been some times in which we went with a big group of people and ordered a lot of meat. They owners were nice enough to cook the meat on another grill while we were cooking our own, so that, when we were done, they gave us already prepared meat. SO NICE OF THEM! Maybe because we’re there all the time and they see us burning our meat because we suck and they took pity on us.

We took a friend here once who served in the Korean army, and he was totally waxing nostalgic here. The metal trays, supposedly, are standard in the Korean army, and how soldiers often eat their lunches (or ate lunches, back in his time). Another thing about Outdoor Factory: it blares a lot of old Kpop. Sometimes it has a new song in there or two, like Jay Park’s “Joah”, which you see Martina singing in the Bloopers. They also smuggle in some Sistar from time to time, but it’s mostly old stuff that we don’t know the words to, but our older Korean friends happen to know (if you’re reading this, older Korean friends of ours, we don’t mean OLD old. Just old-er, you know? As in, older than what’s out there in Kpop recently!)

Anyhow, we’d like to give you directions to this place, but it’s really so complicated. I’ve got no idea how to express it. It’s on the side street of a side street off Parking Lot Street in Hongdae, closer to the Sangsu end of Parking Lot Street. How do we describe it otherwise? Damn. We need to make an app with a map of the places we’ve been! We asked the place if they had a website, but they didn’t, so we don’t even know how to link them. Ah well. It’s one of those special secrets…though it’s not really a secret, because a pretty famous Korean food show went there, Tasty Road. We didn’t see that episode, though, but we heard about it.

Extra side note: we have a GoPro camera, and we’re surprised we haven’t been using it more often. We really had fun with those chopstick shots. We think they’re cool looking, and having a second camera switches things up from time to time. We’re really happy with how this video turned out, and we hope you like it, too!

Another cool thing here: you might have noticed that we used different music here. Story behind it all: The band is called 후후 (aka WHOwho). Ryan, who you saw in our Board Game Wank, introduced us to them a while ago. We really liked their music. We kept on waiting for a YouTube video of theirs to go up, so we could talk about it for our Korean Indie segment on Sundays, but they still don’t have one up. But we really wanted to share their music! So, we contacted their label, and asked if we could use their music in our video. BOOYA! They agreed. And so, since we can’t show the music in our Indie segment, we can at least share it here in our FAPFAP. We hope you dig it as much as we do, and hopefully you could check them out live here in Hongdae one of these days :D Or, you can check them out on Twitter, Facebook, Cyworld, and check out a live video of them here, from which – come to think of it, I think we were there at this show.

 

And, lastly, we’ve got some extra scenes in the bloopers, namely, Martina singing along to Jay Park, and me talking about meat. MEAT!

    i just wanna know which mini cam are they using in this videoㅠㅠ can’t find the same one onlineㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

  2. WHOA i know this vid is old, but what kind of camera is martina holding at 3:52 ?????

  3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9JSK_JiTKU

    do you guys know this place? I have been looking for it for it but I got no luck…

  4. Oh my gosh no :( Has this video gotten deleted???
    Youtube says the Video doesn’t exist D:

    This is one of my favorite EYK videos…how could this happen…damn you Youtube!

    Ahhhh :( Could you re-upload it?

    • The video works fine for me. Were you trying to watch it here or on YouTube?
      There have been some issues with the playlists on the blog, but normally it will just skip the video.
      Watching the playlist on YouTube work though. Try this YouTube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahXKeboHw5w and there is a link in the description box if you want to watch the full playlist.

      • I get both the same message on YT and here:

        this video doesn’t exist. (Screencap is from yesterday, same problem today though)
        That is so strange…
        I tried to watch it here, on YT itself and with different browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera) and on WinXP and Win7…
        All the other videos work fine.

        • You’re right this is strange. 0.o
          And this is the first video and only you’ve had issues with? so its not the standard things like Flash, Cache or Cookies etc (https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/58129?hl=en&ref_topic=3014746 ). My only other thought was that its a region issue, but that should come up with a different message saying that you’re unable to view the video rather than “This video does not exist”.
          hmmm… Sorry I can’t be much help, I’ve tried searching online to see if anyone else has had this problem recently but I can’t find anything. I’ll ask around, maybe the other Mods (@fuuko4869 @Natz ) might have an idea?
          Otherwise I can only suggest that you keep trying it, using different browsers or a different computer. You could also report the issue to YT by right clicking on the video and selecting “Report playback issue”. The video is still there, its just for some reason you can’t see it. D:

        • Thanks for your reply :)
          Well, yes, this is the first and only video I had this issue with.
          (For the regional issue that Germany blocks Livestreams, I have Proxtube which unblocks the blocking but not the ads ^^)
          I tried it on all different computers of the house (all updated of course) and it won’t work. Maybe it’s some provider’s crazies or another mysterious random problem.
          Ah well, need to go to a friend’s house to watch this xD
          All the other videos are perfectly fine.

    I’m going to Korea in August, and I wanted to eat at this restaurant, and I totally understand that you guys can’t give specific directions (that’s a lot of side streets) But a general area on a map would help? Sorry for the trouble, and great video! (I’m so jealous you guys get to eat there often!)

  6. I noticed you guys don’t layer your soju with cola anymore. Does that mean you’ve gotten use to the taste or that this place just has better quality soju?
    I know this comment is late but I was out of the country so I’m only getting to the video now.

  7. 『Laura P.』

    Hey dear EYK-crew,
    you probably won’t read this anymore as this video is “already” a week old and you guys are so busy and all.
    Anyhow, I just wanted to tell you that I liked the way you edited this episode of FAPFAP!
    I like the cuts and shots and also these GoPro-shots! You really can use this camera more often in FAPFAPs.
    Also this “restaurant” looks really atmospherey (Is that even a word? I don’t know.)
    Thanks for always recommending restaurants and everything to us Nasties. haha

    Hope to see you guys someday when I visit S.Korea – someday in the future.

    Have a nice evening and following week!
    Best regards from Germany!

    Sincerely yours,
    Laura :)

    • Lol, well we can all see the comments when they are posted on our mod page so maybe Leigh will see is comment ( or Simon and Martina will tell her) since she’s the one that mainly edited this video I think. She was the main camera person as well. I like those go pro cameras as well. Really handy.

  8. Martina..? Did you get your “Told You So” dance from Grace’s mother??? You can tell me.

  9. aaaaaaaaaah, I need to go, but I’ll never find it. Take me plz ): lol

  10. Desiree Wilson

    Freakin awesome video! loved the GoPro too. Great job EYKCrew, great job

  11. Wahaha man-chest-hair united xD I see what you did there, Simon! I’m really craving meat right now…but I should sleep…MEAT!

  12. The green veggies you call peppers, are really chillies and that’s why they are so hot.^^ You’ve been munching on fire! To make them less hot, just remove the seeds.

  13. Ah I want to find this! You should just make a video of you walking there from your studio XD

  14. I wish you guys would post maps of some of these places. I live in Seoul and would love to try some of these harder to find places you go to!

  15. once my dad tried the chilliest chill in the world. he was like this is gonna be like nothing. yeah he almost died after that.

  16. “We need to make an app with a map of the places we’ve been!”

    There already is an app. Google Maps! You could create a FAPFAP map and a WANK map (or just a EYK map) and then Nasties will be able to find the cool locations that you go to. It’d be quick and easy to set up.

    • letteranon

      Yea that’s a great idea!I follow fashion blogs and some of the bloggers use the map to show places where they shop and it’s super convenient and easy ^__^

  17. Loved the new format!!! Loved all the new camera angles and the music!

    OMG! My chopsticks always break apart exactly like Simon’s do!

  19. WHOwho are amazing yay! Also hottie staff guy.

  20. I don’t know why, but hearing a Korean song used for the soundtrack of this video made me extremely happy (I was literally clapping excitedly in my seat)! The editing done to the beat of the music gave the video more life too. You should keep doing it, especially for the indie artists. It will probably also help attract more people to watch the Korean Indie Playlist as well, and they should, cause it’s amazing! The song you chose fit very well. Now I am craving meat that I can’t have too. I guess I’ll have to wait till next week when I go to Destiny’s to have anything remotely similar. I’ll just go eat some boring serial now.

    P.S that worker is cute! lol

  21. Um, hi.. way off topic but I was wondering if it would be possible to do an updated apartment tour? Last time you showed us it barely had any furniture in it. But if not, that’s cool too c:
    Hope this doesn’t seem a creepy request! (+ Sorry if I made mistakes – not an native english speaker)

  22. really liked the GoPro addition :D it’s like really diving into the food.

  23. That looks like a really fun restaurant! I’m vegetarian though, so the meat doesn’t get me salivating, but the guy who served you sure did!^^ I actually rewound the video and watched him a couple of times. Cute!

  24. who’s filming this? *curious*

  25. NaToTheWak

    Oh, I forgot to share my first thought while watching this video: Simo, NEVER drink water (or anything) after eating something spicy NEVER EVER EVERRR it makes everything so much woooooooooooooorse!

  26. i’m really enjoying watching you guys explore different filming and editing styles. :P

  27. Barry Adams

    Forgot to mention, I loved how you used Korean Indie music in your video. You should do that more often!

  28. Barry Adams

    Ahh, just went to a Korean BBQ place here in The States. Glad I know of EYK cause I didn’t really used to like the pork belly, but it was mouthwateringly awesome tonight! My only complaint is that Korean BBQ is too damn expensive here in The States! $50 for brisket and pork belly for 2.

  29. thisisjustforfunval

    My seafood black bean noodles had for dinner is rather disappointing after watching this FAPFAP. I really want a platter of grilled delicious meat now!

  30. The editing of this video was soooooo so good. I really really liked how it turned out! I’m guessing this is Leigh’s work, so congrats Leigh! I love it, keep it up! n_n

  31. Mya Stroud

    omg that little camera is so cute and has amazing quality! I want one T_T where’d you guys get it?

  32. Dear lord, that waiter was HOT

    I expect every video you upload from your Singapore trip to be a Fap fap. I will allow you at most one other type but apart from that… You have a very limited amount of time there and if you are not stuffing your face at every opportunity then you are doing it wrong. Sg has an amazing food culture; it is probably one of the best if not the best in Asia. The food itself is very very tasty but I wouldn’t be so presumptious to say that their food is the best in Asia. It’s the culture around food that I love, it’s very social, very important and a lot of places understand that people want to eat at a later hour. It’s a pretty food obsessed place.

  34. Sarah Lynn Rector

    This is the best looking FAPFAP! It looks so good with the camera movements and the editing was done really well! Nice!

  35. This was a really fun FAPFAP. Of course all of them are, but I particularly loved the different camera angles, using legally approved indie music (creative way to get it heard), and the aesthetics were indeed very comforting. You two could go to the same place multiple times and I would still love to watch what you have to show and say on the matter. =D

    As a matter of fact, what with using this niffty GoPro, I’ve always been curious what equipment you two use: what you use, how you use it, what other coolio tech gear you would love to have and so forth. I love that sort of “behind the scenes” information. If you were to ever do a small video or just mention this techy items in a livechat, I’d for sure tune in. =)

  36. Wow….Love the new angles! Really awesome food porn shots. XD

  37. You guise should always use indie music for WANKs and FAPFAPs! i don’t even eat meat but i was loving the food porn shots cause of the music.

  38. Jay Park breakdown at the self-serve ^^

  39. Great FAPFAP, made even better with KIndie and the GoPro shots. Maybe you could use a KIndie song for the soundtrack in a WANK/FAPFAP (obviously with the label’s permission), which would be another great way of highlighting Indie/non-Kpop music aside from the K-Indie Segment?
