This whole week, when we’ve been working on the video, we’ve been eating this stuff. Leigh and Soo Zee watched the rough draft of the video, and then went out and got some, and then we saw the finished version today, and Leigh – right now as we speak – is out getting Hoddeok for all of us. I’m gonna be so happy when this video is uploaded so we never have to think about this again…UNTIL WE DO THINK ABOUT IT! Kinda hard not to think about it since this place is so close to our studio.

Anyhow, I’ll stop talking about how addicted we are to this stuff. Like we mentioned in the video, you don’t need to know directions to get Hoddeok. It’s street food. We see it sometimes in street food stalls, but other times, like in this video, we see small Hoddeok shops that aren’t street food stalls, but it’s still not really a shop. It’s just, like, an open garage. No seats. No doors. You pay in cash. One buck or two bucks. Take your Hoddeok in a sliced paper cup and GTFO. Damn: did we ever tell you how much better street food is than regular food? We often hear about street food not being safe, because of hygienic blablafartsomecrappyreason, but we’ve never gotten sick from street food. The only times we did get sick from food is when we got EXPENSIVE food, like, more than $50 for the bill. It doesn’t happen all the time, of course, but it happens more than it does for street food, which never gets us sick.

Also, don’t make fun of our mispronunciation! All the Korean double-consonant letters are so difficult for us to pronounce. UGH! We listen to explanations of how to pronounce them, but it just becomes us yelling it out, until our teacher’s like “yeah, that’s it!” just because they want us to stop yelling. Saying the letter louder doesn’t make the pronunciation right. DON’T JUDGE US OK!

So, yeah, this video was a bit short. We just wanted to show some Hoddeok off and make you drooool. We’ve got some bloopers this week as well, in which we joke about double G’s. WHOO! WOOH! WOO!


  1. I miss hoddeok so much TT_TT Going around Myeong-dong late at night then biting into these… And burning your tongue off. What do you call that fist-sized bread with a salty hard-boiled egg on top? It’s yellow and always opened up beside the hoddeok stand near Uniqlo last year.

  2. Hihi. Anyone knows where hoddeok king is located at?

  3. Is there anywhere this is offered in the summer? I’m only in Korea for the hottest months but I want some nowww ;__;

  4. You guys have to try 옛날 호떡! or “Old Fashioned”! They are a slightly harder-to-find variety, but the best place for them is in Myongdong (the side right near Namdaemun). They are … baked? kind of? So no oil! They are only made in the sweet variety, but definitely delish. MyongDong’s is the best compared to everywhere else I have tried, so go there! (other places are too dry :( )!

  5. Canadian food is salty,like really salty(sometimes) .My Korean friend is always Complains for the food here is to salty or to sweet.So Korean food is bitter?? I know its has some heat spices to it like dukboki ,but i mean like to you was it a problem to get used to it??! thank you.

  6. love your hat !!!!<3 you look tired

  7. holdup! Did you guys explain why it’s only sold in the winter time? (I’m sorry if u did already. *aegyo face*) This stuff should be sold throughout the whole year! It looks so friggen good!

  8. If I ever get to meet you guys I’ll make you some of my hoddeok! ^^ All of my Korean friends think that my hoddeok is even better than the ones they find in Korea =O

  9. There is this stand in Busan (where Hoddoek was first sold) and it is the best I had in Korea. They open it up after cooking and dip the end in a cinimon and nut mixture.

  10. I made my own batche of it and i’m eating it right now while watching the video.><

  11. Not sure if you’re still in the mood for Hoddeok.. we were walking around the Namdaemun shopping area, and came across a MASSIVE line for something.. it was for Hoddoek! There other Hoddeok-looking vendors in the market, but most people were waiting for this one particular vendor. So we stood in line for about 30 minutes to try one (we’re vacationing in Seoul at the moment, and have only been here for a few days). It was AWESOME!!! Not sure if they are still making it for late season, or if they make it year round.. if you’re interested.. take exit 5 at Hoehyeon and go immediately into the market area.. stay on that little road/walkway all the way down to the major street (Namdaemun-ro), make a right, and the vendor is the 2nd one on the right (technically the first one, as the first “space” was occupied with ply wood).. happy FAPFAP-ing!!!

  12. I think this is the first fap fap where Martina has managed to eat an entire thing without Simon stealing any of it.

  13. Hoddeok is the thing I miss most from my time living right next to a Korean market in Chicago….sigh…I have a box mix in the pantry for some, but they are just not at awesome as straight off the griddle from an ajumma! *sigh*

  14. I am so happy you made this video!!! When I was in South Korea, I was addicted to those things, but I never knew the name of them! Thank you so much for making this video!!!!!!!!!

  15. you can buy the savory one near the entrance of namdaemun market. yum-o!

  16. You inspired me to make my own Hoddeok. Since I live in California I was really sad that there wasn’t anything like that here. so I looked up a recipe and made some and OH MY GOSH IT WAS AMAZING. :D

  17. FAPFAP idea….Korean Fried Chicken!! So many idols endorse it (SHINee, Kara, Girl’s Generation, etc). Wouldn’t it be fun?

  18. Martina! I like your cap! Where did you buy it???

  19. I really need to find a place that makes em where i live D=!..or I can attempt to make em myself…with sesame, roasted peanuts, coocnut flakes, sugahhh

    maybe martina will agree to a reverse version of kawi, bawi, bo. ! like rock loses to scissor, scissor loses to paper, paper loses to rock. then we’ll know if simon is really the champion of kawi,bawi, bo or if martina is just really bad at it =O.

  20. These kind of sound like the Korean version of beaver tails!

  21. Anyone interested in making this: It’s ridiculously easy and most of the ingredients can be found around the house!
    (at least for my house, but then again, I practically have a grocery store in my basement =.=)

  22. I didn’t see any meat…. accidental vegetarian FAPFAP FTW.

  23. I’ve never had the japchae hoddeok. But they sell some of the caramelized sugar hoddeok here in Toronto at the Walnut Cake place in Christie. I’ve tried making them at home, they’re good with sunflower seeds and walnuts (instead of pumpkin seed) but nothing beats buying them from a Korean place. They just make them so good.

  24. Do you have a Korean teacher???

  25. Is this really only around in the winter? Busan has it all year round. (Well, it has the sweet one).

    The best place for it is right in the main BIFF plaza in Nampo-dong. Speaking of, you should really do something for BIFF in October…

  26. Is there a home version recipe for Hodduek? I want some :(

  27. its actually a wonder that you guys are not fat. if i went to Korea i would be so fat i would break the record of the fattest person alive. i mean look at the food mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmm

  28. Are there nuts in 호떡? Or is the only crunchy bit the pumpkin seeds?

  29. I am jealous! I was addicted to hoddeok when I was in Korea. Every morning I would pass the same street and get one
    “hot off the pressess”. Tried to get some here in LA but not the same. :(

  30. Just saying, I always love watching all of the people behind you guys in your WANKs and FAPFAPs. And I came prepared for this one. I brought food. Now I just wish it was as good looking as what you guys were eating.

  31. I’m pretty sure in Infinite’s “Man in Love” Hoya was buying shoes for Seo In Guk ;)

  32. omnomnomnom there’s a store that sells these on bloor street in koreatown!

    suuuuper delicious ;__;

  33. Mmmmmm!!! Delicious! I actually have a Korean friend who made these one time, and she gave me one. It was pretty fabulous and amazing…I think I need to go over to her house again sometime soon…

  34. Fapfap’s are going to be the death of me! I’m stuck on vegan diet till I can have surgery and even so afterwards. I’m not hating on a vegan diet, but damn something fried, sweet and greasy crispiness makes my mouth hate my gallbladder and stomach right now!

  35. Ooh! I made these using Maangchi’s recipe. I just made them slightly healthier using wheat flour adn what not. Don’t be alarmed they are just as good! If you come to my blog i will show you how i did it and how they turned out! It was super fun!

  36. oh my gosh~!! i remember the first time i had hoddeok! I spilled the syrup all over my jacket this recent winter :( hoddeok is dangerous and spills and stain -.- but SUPER DUPER DELICIOUS MMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmm hahaha ^.^
