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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. “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.

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

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

  6. 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!

  7. My first thought was like…

    Awesome job Intern Leigh!

  8. The only one that I survived was the Gongcha Bubble Tea one since I have access to some pretty excellent Boba here in NYC…

    The one good place for Soondubu Jiggae hasn’t re-opened yet…sigh…

  9. 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.

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

  11. I loved the format guys! It was very well put together and the chopstick shots where fun!!
    Poor simon and the peppers, but you kinda had it coming! XP

  12. It’s dinner time here. Now I want to eat everything. EVERYTHING.

  13. As per usual, even the opening shot looked so delicious that I had to make sure I had supper before watching . This was a great FAPFAP but I wish you would have shown more shots of the food grilling…..or eating the food (did you wrap it in lettuce? do you normally get rice with it but you guys didn’t?) I super like the addition of the music, and this is a great song but at one point I realized I was dancing and looking up WhoWho in another window rather than watching the video. Maybe something a little more chill next time? Or well, I liked the music you used previously for the food P0rn shots….sometimes predictability allows the viewer to focus on what’s being shown and not heard. Perhaps you could close with the music so it isn’t so distracting……This is all assuming you will choose a new song each time to showcase and not the same one, if it’s the same song, it’s less of a problem over time.

    Cyber_3 – mmmmm…….meat with extra char……………….

  14. i really liked the insertion of the indie music, and i hope this trend continues! i mean, i love the fapfap food porn shot music too, but…… OH GOD I’M SO TORN NAO.

  15. First thing; that waiter was cute xD
    second: I love meat and I’m drooling xD
    OMG that waiter looks so cute >_<

  16. Hot dogs have a smoother texture as the ingredients are blended together more. Sausages have a chunkier texture, you might notice bits of fat mixed in with the meat.

    If you were to actually go camping, you tend to bring cups and plates and things made from metal (harder to accidentally break) or paper or plastic (cheap, lightweight, can be thrown away in a garbage can so you don’t have to take dirty cups home with you). You wouldn’t actually throw away your cups in the woods, that would be littering!

  17. Martina and Simon! If you want to show places you go to, you can use google maps and put little virtual pins to mark exactly where the places are. Then all the Nasties could easily find them! as long as you guise share the link… :P

  18. the trick is to hold the very end of the wooden chopsticks at the bottom and slowly bend the 2 ends outwardly upwards. u’ll almost always get it break perfectly even.

  19. I’ve been watching you guys for years now and I finally had to break my silence to comment on something. Chamisul is sooo much better than Chum-Churum. Chamisul has a sweeter flavor and less of that “hairspray” taste. Love your videos. I think I might try to spot you guys or your office when I visit Korea in November. :)

  20. You. Make. Me. Hungry. 2AM. In. The. Morning. CURSES!!!!

    u so nasty

  21. Warning : watch these videos after breakfast. Bad case of terrible hunger may appear if not.

  22. bwahahahahha Manchesthair United!!!!!!!!
    i’m just gonna remember that from now on…..

  23. I’m drooling lol Meat cooked over camping fires are delicious! Brings me back to camping at Yosemite, except your meat looks a lot more delicious!

  24. I’m vegetarian but this is a pretty cool concept…you really should listen to Martina when it comes to hot peppers from now on Simon, i don’t want to hear about your death by pepper lol
