HAY GUISE! It’s time for another livechat! Woohoo! We wanted to take the time today to put out a couple of announcements. In case you like reading more than watching, here are the announcements again, but this time with a bit more details!

1) Vote for us for the Shorty Awards! We didn’t say that in the livechat, but we should have. We’re in first place and we need to keep it that way so we can go down to New York and Nastify the place. Woohoo!

Nominate Simon and Martina for a social media award in the Shorty Awards!Nominate Simon and Martina for a social media award in the Shorty Awards

2) IT’S MY BIRFDAY! Well, not yet, but it will be on January 20th, which is only a few more hours away! Woohoo! The point of this is, we work everyday, but I refuse to work on my birthday. REFUSE, I TELL YOU! So, to compensate for the day we missed, we had to film a few things in advance, like the KpopCharts update, which is why we didn’t include Jaejoong’s video in the update: we filmed before it came out. Also, Music Monday’s gonna be late because we usually get a lot of work done on Sunday. We’ll have to double down on Monday, but we already always double down on Mondays, so I’m not sure if we can quadruple down, but we’re gonna do our best to get the video out ASAP.

3) Martina is going to be out of Korea for a week or so, to be with family. Thank you all for your support and wishes for Martina’s grandfather, but he didn’t pull through, and she’s going back to Canada to be with her mom and dad for a bit. So, when she’s gone, I’m gonna:

a) Be miserable. We’ve never been apart for more than a day since we got married. If we’re apart for more than a few hours we feel terrible. How will we last so long apart? We have no clue.
b) Be filming by myself. We’re trying to get stuff done in advance, like TL;DRs and WANKs, but there’s only so much we can do, you know? So, some alone-time sad videos coming your way!

4) We’re gonna be interviewing CLAZZIQUAI PROJECT! Woohoo! We’re gonna make an announcement video for it soon, where we’ll be taking your questions for them, but we’re super excited that they’re gonna be coming by the studio and hanging out. SWEET! Stay tuned, because we’ll be giving more info soon :D You can check out their latest video here, if you haven’t seen it yet!


  1. Question. When is the interview going to be posted?….i Know you work hard and that it takes times to do these kinds of thing, im in no way saying this to pressure you guys, I just want to know about what time I can pop around here and find a wonderful surprise that the video is posted :D

  2. I subscribe this video
    I love it!!

  3. I’m so sorry to hear about Martina’s Grandfather. It sucks to lose a grandparent. My Grandpa died from complications with cancer in 2011, so I can relate a little. My condolences. Reminiscing with the family will help make it hurt a little less (at least it did for me).

  4. Hey, Simon! Happy Birthday! I didn’t know about the deal with what day birthdays fall on either! :P

  5. Simon! I have songs for you – You and I and Don’t Cry by Park Bom

  6. My condolences, Martina!! To you and your family, I wish you all the best. And happy birthday, Dothraki Man Warrior Simon!! Hopefully this will be the only birthday you spend without Martina!!

  7. TOTES! You deserve your own time to celebrate the birthday of the year!

  8. They usually announce the livechats on twitter ( @eatyourkimchi ) or on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/EatYourKimchiPage?ref=stream ).

  9. This might be a stupid question, but I missed this live chat because I didn’t even know there was going to be one. Do you guys announce them somewhere?

  10. Where can I get your adress to send fan mail? I can’t seem to find it (or maybe I’m not looking really well).

  11. Hello to you guys from Mexico!!!! I hope it’s not too late, Happy Birthday Simon!!!! I hope you have (or had) a great day with your family and friends :D!!! (Martina, I love your dress, it’s so cute n_n!!!!)

  12. 1)Martina l’m so sorry to hear about your grandfather! I lost my father-in-law last month. It’s always hard to lose people you love. Safe travels.
    2)My husband and I were talking and I think we’ve had about 2 mos apart in 11+ years, mostly weekend trips with friends here and there. I married my best friend, but if we don’t have time apart sometimes we go a little crazy :) When he’s laid off, the first month is awesome, the next 2 weeks, our differences in schedule start to bother us, and at 2 mos I start asking, ” So when are you going back to work?” lol We couldn’t do what you do.

    3)I hope you win that shorty, cause you deserve it with all the hard work you guys do.

  13. If Hoya from infinite comes, he will love your couch

  14. Sorry for your loss Martina. -huggles-

    And happy birthday Simon. ^^

  15. I just got my foot tattoo today and it hurt like crazy, but I manage not to cry >.< I was wondering how you guys did while you were getting yours done?

  16. The birthday thing doesn’t always work because of leap years!

  17. Happy birthday Simon! spend it well!
    Martina, I’m sorry for your loss and Simon is gonna be all alone for that time span that she’s gone :( But you guys should feature the intern in the next few videos!

  18. You make me want too kees and touch 50% of my DNA.

  20. Simon!! Your really gonna be alone for a few days? D;
    I feel so sad for you :(

  21. LMAO!!! OMG Simon you said a bad word in spanish on the live chat today when you pronounced someones screen name when Martina was showing us the Polaroid pictures. You said this word (Urban Dictionary Link)—> http://tinyurl.com/3sfug8t

    3. AN INTERVIEW WITH CLAZZIQUI PROJECT!!!! I’m so excited for that!
    4. Martina I love your glasses! They’re so cool!
    5. I’m getting the same glasses as Simon in my prescription! Oh yeah!!!

  30. “Also, Music Monday’s gonna be late because we usually get a lot of work done on Sunday. We’ll have to double down on Monday, but we already always double down on Mondays, so I’m not sure if we can quadruple down, but we’re gonna do our best to get the video out ASAP.” don’t worry about it guise… just take your time…

  31. I’m so glad someone mentioned WTFs today, I was wanting to mention them in the Livechat too…except when my alarm went off at 4:45am…I sort of…fell back asleep until 5:22am…

  32. first of all.. Happy birthday Simon!! *sends him a hug* btw we met in Mexico :D (just saying, i don’t expect you to remember me cuz there were so many people)

    I really liked this video, it was fun and ooh so nasty! too bad i couldn’t watch it live because it was like 4 or 5 am where I live and to wake up at that time is just not possible for me .. so yeah. I’m looking forward to Simon lonely videos and also, I EFFING LOVE THAT COUCH!! it’s just PERFECT! so if one day it mysteriously disappears, it wasn’t me :) hehe

  33. Having your live chat at this hour on a Saturday was very convenient for me in Europe.

  34. I feel kind of bad after reading the not so happy posts but then getting extremely excited about Clazziquai. ^^” It’s not my fault they happen to be my favorite-indie-but-not-so-indie-anymore band.

  35. Discovered an environmentally friendly tool that helps ventilate laptops, ready, Cardboard Egg Cartons! You can customise the height, use one or a stack, voila…

  36. a sad song? Noel – I Miss you!!!

  37. Hey, Simon & Martina!

    First off, I am so sorry for your loss, Martina. I hate that you have to be away from Simon, but I think about how your family could probably use a good dose of Martina huggles. I can only give virtual ones, but please know I’m thinking of you.

    Second, my husband and I have been married 7 years, and together for 14 (we met back in college). In all that time, we’d probably been apart a weekend at most. But in 2007 he left for the US (we’re living in Manila) and stayed for TWO FREAKIN MONTHS. It nearly killed me, I swear. I agree with Martina–my husband is also my best friend, and well, in 2007, online chatting wasn’t as up to scruff as today. Plus, you know, no online chatting can ever compare to a real-life hug. ANYWAY, when he came back home I said NEVER AGAIN. If he was going to be away that long I was insisting I come along with him. So I can totally relate. I pray the week goes by fast!

    Lastly, I am so so SO geeked up to have found sunglasses on the exact 8-bit pixel frames like Simon’s sporting! I found it in a tiny kiosk in a mall over here, so hee! :) Happy birthday, Simon!

    (and I can’t wait for more details on the Clazzi interview. Love their stuff!)

  38. happy birthday simon.

    its time u make use of your intern while martina is gone. get her to act in skits with u, who knows we may have a new character in future?
