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

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

  3. 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 :( )!

  4. 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.

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

  6. 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!

  7. 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

  8. 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.

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

  10. 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!!!

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

  12. 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*

  13. 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!!!!!!!!!

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

  15. 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

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

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

  18. 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.

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

  20. 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 =.=)

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

  22. 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.

  23. Do you have a Korean teacher???

  24. 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…

  25. if anyone ever wants to make this at home: http://www.maangchi.com/recipe/hoddeok

  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. Awwwwww! Poor Simon. :)

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

    suuuuper delicious ;__;

  34. 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…

  35. thisisjustforfunval

    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!

  36. 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!

  37. 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 ^.^

  38. Soooooo hungry now….you evil people…..

  39. I think you got the noraebang name wrong. The closer one is Luxury Su Noraebang (with the Chinese symbol) – it has the glass and everything. Prince Edward is further down the street…granted they’re all on the same street anyways.

  40. Hoddeok looks MAJESTIC +____+!! It’s been a while, but I was drooling during this FAPFAP.

  41. I really enjoy watching your videos nowadays. They are super funny!

  42. bigbangfosho

    OMG THIS IS DELICIOUS!! I have a korean supermarket near where I live, and they sell ggul hoddeok except it also has red beans and no seeds I think. AND OMG IT’S SO GOOD. You basically fry it up whenever you feel like it. But it only comes in packs of 4. This makes me want to try it as street food.

  43. I’ve made hoddeok before and it’s always so messy, and takes awhile, but it’s soo good…
    If people have an H mart near them they sell boxes for making it, with the doughy stuff and the brown sugar stuff in it.

  44. @simonandmartina:disqus now that I’ve watched this video, ima go and fly to Korea and get me some Hoddeok!

  45. Awwww, Simon’s sad face… XD

  46. those hoddeok looks so good i wanna try one

    oh yeah check this out guys one of the best remiv i’ve ever heard http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_8G56dxYHE

  47. After saying Hoddeok a million times to try to get the pronunciation at least somewhat correct it just started to sound like “hot dog” to me ^_^”

  48. The last shots of the blooper video reminded me of what I always think when I see foreign people with cameras in Zagreb or Zadar: “Crazy tourists…” You guys are so silly… ^^

  49. You have no idea how much I wanted to eat these
    you need to tone down the foodporn, or else I’ll never survive! :P

  50. I need this in my tummy – now. :(

  51. KATHyphenTUN

    OMG!!! these look sooo delicious!!! I’m drooling!

  52. I heard google came up with google nose so we can smell videos…….

    sike…..that was their evil april fools joke…which I don’t think was very convincing anyways but it would be so cool Martina…both your descriptions fulfill the needs to smell the food.

  53. I actually know how to make this!! Mwahahah! I don’t even think mine tastes as amazing as one made by someone who makes it everyday, but damn it’s still oh so delicious!! Hmmm, now I must buy ingredients for the makings!

  54. *weeps* Why can’t I have fried beautiful goodness? Seriously, I think I’d visit Seoul and just stuff my face the entire time. No sight seeing, just food stall after food stall. Also, idk if Leigh edited this video, but the editing was really awesome! So good job guys :)

  55. How come Simon couldn’t just run and buy another one for himself?? Maybe even two….

  56. It looks sooooo good ! i want some! >3<

  57. a;fsdhgalsdf i love hoddeok omg *U* and i can even have it in the summer, because sometimes my mom makes it at home (even though we’re not korean???) and it’s GLORIOUS.

  58. I had my first experience with those potato noodles a few weeks ago omg they are so good. my mouth started watering so bad :( and because of my meds i cannot eat for another 20 minutes, those things look fabulous!

  59. Martina, I REALLY like your hat!!!!!!!

  60. The editing of this video was ace! I sometimes feel sad and hungry looking at your videos of awesome food but this time I was laughing too hard to care. I really enjoyed this FAPFAP video (:

  61. Dude… you can see Simon salivating… he can’t contain himself… Also I can totally see Simon pulling the ‘that’s how much you love’ card with yummy foods…

  62. NOOOOO!!! You guys, I’m on a diet. *cries in a corner* I don’t think this qualifies for losing weight food, lol. I was happy to see Martina keep her hoddeok though, Simon likes to steel food I’ve noticed. XD

  63. I am so happy to see this. I know how to make hoddeok, but now I know how to make other ones.. Yay great fapfap today

  64. Holy crap both of those flavors look delicious. I want T_T

  65. Simon’s sneaky attempts at eating remind me of my cat trying to bite something when he thinks that we’re not looking. XD

  66. I found a recipe online for hoddeok so we make this at home. everyone loves the sugary filling. I sometimes fill them with other stuff so it’s more like a meal instead of just being dessert. I’ve made taco, BBQ, and a kimchi hamburger ones. The bread part is awesome!!! http://www.maangchi.com/recipe/hoddeok

  67. Good thing I hate something delicious before I watched it….but I doooo want to try this T___T

  68. UGH OMG. This is my FAVORITE Korean food. I can’t express my jealousy. YUM.

  69. I looooove japchae T__T I can only imagine how delicious the japchae hoddeok is :(

  70. 호떡 is seriously the best food on the planet. There is a really good 호떡 place in Insa-dong that has a peanut-buttery center that’s more creamy with tons on peanuts inside. SOOO good. I love the classic brown sugar but the peanut is a nice mix-up.

  71. In St. Lucia there is something similar called ‘Johnny cake’. The cooking process is the same, but they only use yeast, flour, sugar and salt(optional). It’s almost like a plain hoddeok I guess.

  72. Theres a korean hoddeok stall here in Auckland (NZ) right in the city centre :) always has a massive que of drooling customers!

    • What??!! Really? Where? I walked all around Auckland city looking for Asian food once, found like taiyaki, bubble tea and stuff, but no hoddeok D:

      • pretty much across the road from the giant tall AUT building (edge of the alleyway)

        • Oh right :/ I kinda stuck to Queen Street, lol. I think I got as far as Sky City Metro and then headed back (to the ferry terminal). Well, if I ever go again, I’ll make sure to keep an eye out for it :p

  73. We get homemade versions of the sweet kind from the market: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8439/7992468546_1e85e823c6_z.jpg
    For me, they definitely do NOT come out as perfect as the real ones, but they are still oh-so-delicious.

    And I recently realized that one of the HMarts, a Korean supermarket chain, “near” (in quotes because it’s not very near at all, sad face) us had someone cooking some. I didn’t have enough money to get some, freshly made. ; 3;

  74. PunkyPrincess92

    hehehehe there’s a club behind you guys called S club….i used to love S Club 7 as a kid!!!! (that’s right i used to be a goat!!)
    i thought you said “i will get fat Onew” hahaha!! i was thinking why on earth are you saying that to him?

    hahah aaawww Simon’s sad face!!!

  75. I LOVE LOVE hoddeok! I’ve made some myself all from scratch but that’s at home…top of my to do list when I went to South Korea was to have hoddeok from a street vendor and I nearly jizzed in my pants, it was so good. The fact that it was cold so it heated me to my bones just made it alllll the better!

  76. omg! I’ve always wanted to try Hoddeok ever since I saw the Running Man episode of them eating it >< sooo jelly~

  77. Poor Simon….but Martina I understand. Guys, I’m hungry now and we don’t have hoddeok in Poland! Super sad.

  78. oooo they look so good! I’m going to have to add this to the list of foods to try when I get to Korea! At this rate I’m definitely going to have to loose a bunch of weight before going to Korea, so that I can try all of these wonderful foods and get fat again hahaha xD

  79. martina finally learned not to play kaibaibo on camera, i am so proud!
    i love hoddeok, i saw a recipe on yt and tried to make some myself and even tho i didn’t have all the right ingredients it was so delicious i can not even imagine how awesome the ‘real’ ones must be

  80. I’ve only had the make at home packet ones. I need to try the street food ones. You know the metal push down utensil thing they use? A Korean friend was making them for me one time and was asking where my one of those was…. I was like “I do not know what that is nor have I ever used one”.

  81. If I ever go to Korea, this is definitely one of the things I have to try. I’m right before my dinner now and after watching this I want hoddeok SO BAD!

  82. haha, i was watching this and my stomach started to rumble realy loud :O (it is about lunch time though) But I’m in a completely silent room with other students and they were all laughing :p

    Cheers from the Netherlands

  83. In Busan you can get hoddeok year round and they come stuffed with sunflower seeds. Delectable! It became a problem when a vendor opened shop right across from my building… Now every time I leave my apartment, it’s hoddeok vs. will power. (Hoddeok always wins .___.;; )

  84. …….I’m so hungry…,,, but its too early…… I hate you for making me this way @2:30AM!!!!!!!!

  85. I had to stay up late to finish some homework, and found this video….
    It’s 2:30 AM and I am dying and I WILL NEVER GET TO TRY HODDEOK OR ANYTHING NOOO ;A;
    So visiting Korea just for food one day….
    BRB gonna raid my kitchen in the middle of the night!
    P.S. I love Leigh’s editing style :)

  86. They have it here in Tokyo too ^^ Every time I go to Shin Okubo I eat Hoddoek :) I really love the Kimchi-cheese one, but the honey ones are delicious too xD

  87. Wish we could smell it. :D Well now we can with Google Smell BETA :D lololol

  88. When you put out your warning I was like pfff I just had an awesome chocolate cake breakfast no risk for me here..
    But oh boy was I wrong.. I really want some hoddeok right now !! It looks so freaking delicious !!!
    Why don’t they sell it here ?! It’s still perfectly cold outside I see no reason why they shouldn’t..

  89. I tried to make this at home by the guidance of this video and IT IS SO DAMN GOOOOOOODDDD~~ try it guise! really easy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_MPEq53QFs *brb making some batches*

  90. I swear you guys remind me of me and my boyfriend. He always eats his food so fast and then is sad when he doesn’t have any left and I still have most of mine (but won’t share muahahaha). *sigh* men. They also have permanent hoddeok places in insadong. Super easy to find, just on that main street there. They don’t have the japchae kind though :/ That looks good

  91. Man! When I was in Korea during December, I saw this being sold everywhere around Hongdae. Stupid me didn’t get it ;A;!!!!!!

  92. It’s around this place right???

  93. I was wondering when Martina would stop playing kai-bai-bo with Simon. Every time he suggests it, I’m always like, ‘Don’t do it! Don’t do it!’ I haven’t watched EVERY Eat Your Kimichi video, but I’ve never seen Martina win, at least not when food is involved. The Hoddeok looks so good. My stomach was already growling, now it really wants food. I want both sweet and savory. I think, I’d eat the sweet first, so the savory calms the sugar craving afterwards.

    • Simon once mentioned he figured out a way to for sure always beat Martina, and that was to turn on the camera whenever they’d play. She’d be too conscious. Still, once, just ONCE (okay, maybe thrice) I want Martina to win and crush Simon :p

      Now I need to go cry in a corner as I realize there’s no way such deliciousness exists in Manila. *cries*

  94. Martina’s so cute :] i <3 your hat as well~~~

  95. I love your FAPFAPs ( and your WANKs, KMMs and well, all of your videos…) But this was great; ah, the hoddeok looks so naasssty and so yummy. Korea seems to have amazing street food, I wish Finland had some as well

  96. WHY have you not TOLD ME about this stuff yet??!!

  97. oh gosh, martina doesnt know what prince albert is??? LOL there is a reason why a piercing place is called prince albert XD

  98. Haha poor Simon! I’ll need to try these in October. I’m going to Japan for my sister but I swear I need to spend two days in Seoul. I need the food. Neeeeeeeeeeeed it. :P

  99. I hope i’m first .___. and yes i want a cookie if i am ! T.T

  100. Poor Simon, he can’t help that he was born to win at rock, paper scissors!
    But that looks like a tasty treat, also one of those things that you have to buy and then run, run far away so you don’t buy up their complete inventory.

  101. I’m hungry nowwww T______________T wahh

  102. I LOVE 호떡.
    one of my favourite foods from childhood :)

  103. Why do I do this to myself :(
    2 important rules in life
    1) Never eat before swimming
    2) Always eat before watching FAPFAPs
    If either are not followed you will feel a mixture of regret and nausea

  104. That looks delicious, especially the savory one. It kind of reminds me of like a combination of a latke and maybe okonomiyaki. Yumy!

  105. I’ll add that to the street food I need to eat when I visit Hongdae in November! So keen for it!

  106. I’m getting fat just by looking at all the deliciousness of the video. Y R U DOING THIS ME!!! I’M ON A DIET!!! WHY!!! *Runs off to eat some enchiladas and a salad* A huuuuuuuge Hug from Mexico!



  109. I love these i get em everytime im overnight at a netcafe in New Zealand amazing food !! so good !!
