Ok, we’re gonna have to hold back our tears while writing most of this blog post. ALL THESE FEELS! Let’s just start off by saying that we had an absolutely wonderful time in Mexico, and that you Mexican Nasties are so generous and loving and OH FFFF I’M ALL TEARY EYED AGAIN.

Ok ok ok. Wait. Before we get to that part, let’s talk about how we got there to begin with.

We were invited by Hyunwoo Sun and the Talk to Me In Korea team to come along with them for their Talk to Me in Korean Around the World event. We were going to come as judges for the Kpop Dance Contest, and we were going to get to hang out and chat with some of you all afterwards. We were totally stoked at the idea! I’ve never been to Mexico, but Martina’s been once, loooong time ago. And, we’d get to stop over in Toronto for a few days as well and see our families. How perfect is that? We said yes the instant we were asked.

A few weeks passed by until the night before we fly out. Guess what happens? Martina’s pink eye spreads to me, and I get a nasty fever at 1AM. NAAAASTY fever. No, not “Nasty Fever” as in “OHHH I WANT TO MEET PEOPLE!!!” Nasty Fever as in 38.6 degrees. I was all sweaty and shivering, mumbling stuff that didn’t necessarily agree with what I was thinking, and just overall useless and very unhealthy. Great! Right before we fly out! Luckily for me, Martina’s awesomeness extends into being very caring, and she nursed my fever down to something manageable.

Next morning, we were all ready for our flight to Vancouver, which would then take us to Toronto for the night, which we’d follow up with our flight to Mexico. Great! Problem is, our first flight turned out to be SIX HOURS DELAYED! AH!!! We had to reschedule with a different airline, because we’d miss all of our connecting flights. Balls to that! Fortunately, Hyunwoo fixed this all for us in time. Woot!

Anyhow, we arrived in Mexico after flying and hanging out in airports for roughly 20 hours or so, and we were both pretty sick. Martina’s pink eye is still pink, and my throat was sore as all hell. Great! We’d meet lots of awesome people for the event, and we’d cover them in our Korean germs! We imagined scenes from Contagion being played out. No word yet on the first casualties, though.

We tried being as sanitary as possible! We brought hand sanitizer and used it profusely. At the event, we tried warning people that we were sick, but people in Mexico were all so affectionate, and all gave their hugs to us freely, even at the risk of infection. Even cheek-kisses! Oh boy! If you’re reading this and you were at the event, please tell us that you’re not feeling sick. Or, if you are, we’ll do our best to deny responsibility!

Ok, that part was easy to write about without getting emotional. What hit us the hardest wasn’t being able to chat with people for six hours (no joke: six hours, almost non-stop except for bathroom breaks, which people still chatted with us during (OOH YOU’RE ALL SO NASTY!)). What really hit us the hardest was the reception we got when we walked on stage when we were announced. People screaming and cheering for us…just…just…why? I don’t get it. We don’t deserve it at all, but we felt so overwhelmed with all the positivity and love that we could barely even say anything on stage. We just farted out a few words that were barely eloquent because all we wanted to do was just thank you and cry. Ah. MY FEELS.

Seriously, guise. The support you give us is so overwhelmingly awesome, and we’ll never take that for granted. Seriously: I have no idea how people can perform on stage. Kpop idols – how do you not collapse into sobbing heaps when you get on stage? You’re much bigger than we are, get much more love. How do you maintain composure? What kind of training gets you ready for that? Well, whatever that training is, we don’t want it. We never want to take it for granted that you’re all so wonderful and FFFFF stop writing this ok back to normal not-emotional thoughts.

Anyhow, we had a bunch of fun at the event. We got called out, abruptly, to sing something in front of everyone. WHAT THE EFF?!?! We’re not performers! We can’t do live stuff! Editing video means you can cut out all your mistakes! Doing stuff live is so stressful! We sang Eat Your Kimchi Style, though. Ha! What shocked us the most when we saw the footage afterwards was that PEOPLE WERE SINGING ALONG WITH US!!! What? How? I don’t know. It was amazing. Here’s someone’s video of it.

 

That was the last of my voice. Well, the last bits of it. After the singing contest and dance contest, we met some more people backstage and took some more pictures, but my voice cut right at the end of it. I now have what Martina had a while ago. Can only whisper, and write! Guess that’s why this blog post is so long!

More importantly, we want to seriously apologize to everyone who waited for us after the event. The lineup for pictures was really long, and we were on the brink of collapsing. My nose actually started bleeding. Who the hell does that? This isn’t an anime! People’s noses don’t bleed if they’re tired! But we were barely hanging in there, and we had to get snuck out through the back via security, and we felt guilty as hell for it. Really, really sorry everyone, but if we went on any longer one of us would have fainted. We went back to our hotel and collapsed into our beds and fell asleep instantly.

So, that’s it! We’re writing this blog post on the plane ride back to Toronto now, where we’ll start editing the footage ASAP. Funny: we never actually write blog posts until the video’s finished. We were just both so excited to write this that I guess we couldn’t hold back, though I think I wrote most of it before Martina got the change to write anything (she’s currently face-planted on the plane dinner tray, beside me, fast asleep).

Now, I know some of you are going to ask us to come to your country. And, WE’D LOVE TO COME! SERIOUSLY! We’re not NOT coming to your countries because we don’t want to come. We just don’t know how to event plan for something like that, you know? We can’t just say “AYO! MEET US AT THE STARBUCKS!” We’d need to rent a venue, set up audio and whatnot, and that’s not something we know how to do in our own country, let alone in someone else’s! So, if someone wants to set something up, we’re all for coming! We just can’t set it up ourselves.

Yeah! And there are bloopers for this video, as always. I show off my sexy airport fashion and the secret to being a celebrity at the airport:

    i laughed so hard at the lollipop simon ate XD his reactions was the best

  2. I think if you want to do meetups, check out what PhillyD (aka sxephil on YT) did – for the Dublin one he got sponsors to help with the venue (you can see me in the vid, Defranco Does Dublin), but for the other European meetups (excluding London), the meetups were able to take place in public. So, if you ever do decide to travel to a country and have a meetup, use Facebook to guage how many people would actually come, and from that, determine if you would need to hire a venue, or if a meetup in the park would suffice.
    Just an idea should you guys ever decide to visit this side of the world :D

  3. Sophie

    Oh my gosh! Martina, your hair at around 5:10 is soooo cool with the two braids in the back!!!!! I tried doing that but it ended up as two messy separate braids :/ Could you do a hair tutorial like you did for the milkmaid braids, please?!? ^o^

  4. Anatisha

    Eat your taco style!!!

    On that day I came in a hurry to the event just few seconds behind you (my friend over the phone was shoouting at me when she saw you pass in front of her, haha)

    After waiting to change my tickets, I realized I made a HUGE mistake when I bought them online, long story short I wasnt able to get in. But at the end of the event my friends came out and took me to line to take pictures with you, so I could see you a bit closer and I was happy to know that you are really humble, funny and sweet PLASE DONT CHANGE!! that is the thing makes us love you for, among other things.

    Im not going to deny it, I was so sad beacuse the whole event I spend it outside, couldnt see the language contest, the dance contest, the teachers, and of couse you guys. I was almost in the front of the line and then those security guards… argghhhh, hehe.

    Anyway, so happy you had a great time in our country, which is now your country and you can visit it any time you want; mexican nasties won´t let me lie that even if you say you are in a Starbucks we can meet you there and have a wonderful time.

    As you mention that you are not taking us for granted, we wont either and you already expericence that. All the best for the future and so excited to have news about how the studio is doing!!!!!!!!!

  5. How could you no like the watermelon candy! D: its sooo good!!! Well I guess it is a acquired taste. If you don’t like the candy you can send it to me and i will gladly eat it ^^.

  6. lol, guys, you shouldn’t have gone to VIPS to try good Mexican food. I wish I had known about this! I would’ve gone :(

  7. michiehaha87

    OMG that was awesome! If you guys were to do a world tour, I bet it would be super popular!! :D Im so sad I missed K-Con though, I really wanted to see you guys, I would cried my eyes off, a friend of mines went and brought photos and ARGH! Im so jealous. :( Next year! I hope you guys can come, or I might just go hunting you guys down in Korea! :D I LOVE YOU and your family so much! <3 Thank you for blessing us with your dorky and above average presence! *bows* YOU GUYS ROCK!

  8. Wow, it seems like it would feel mind-blowing and surreal to get on stage with so many people and fans holding up signs for EYK. This is awesome!

  9. Erisadesu

    seriously I am really touched by these people and how they treated you like stars. You are good people and you deserve good things in your life. your parents should be proud of you. I am.

  10. Hahaha you guys crack me up.
    “It tastes like childhood torture”
    I grew up eating those . The first time I ate that I did the same thing as Simon did.
    I think it took me about two to three water batels for me to finish the lollipop

  11. We are like that in Mexico :3 We show our love even in sickness BROHOHOHO *-*

  12. eat your kimchi style live o____O oh the feels……. i have no monies to go to any of these events, but i’m so happy to see the eat your kimchi fans from different countries~ simon and martina, we appreciate all your hard work, dedication, and pure awesomeness :3

  22. Sarianna Rehner

    Simon and Martina! You two are a HUGE inspiration to me! I am also Canadian, (Toronto <3) and I had always dreamed of going to China to study but I didn't think I had the guts to be able to be in a foreign country alone, but you two showed me how it is possible to get through the language barrier as well as all the other hardships you face in different countries. As a result, I am here in Hong Kong now. ^^ Thank you so much guys!

    • michiehaha87

      Thats so awesome!! :D Im looking into getting internships in China during Fall as a co-op program in Uni. Did you learn chinese before you went there? did you already know a little bit? or did you learn over there? – Im thinking of giving myself a year of intensive chinese and then applying for the internship program :D

  23. simon losing his voice sounds like BATMAN.

  24. Hey guise…dunno if you’ve seen this but… apparently there are people dressed up you guise when they attended KCon. Cosplay as Simon and Martina! lol

    • OMG! We saw them at our panel! They were so awesome! We feel terrible, because we didn’t get the chance to take pictures with them afterwards because of security issues :( But we really, really, really wanted to take pictures with them afterwards. Hell, buy them lunch as well! We’re totally honored that anyone wanted to dress like us!

  25. Priscilla123456789

    I really felt all the love the Nasties there were giving you two, and rightfully so because you two are just so amazingly everything nice and humble and aofjeohfasjkdfbka

    I hope you two feel better soon, it broke my heart seeing you guys be so sick on your trip </3

  28. lol soy un freakin dorito. cant wait for future SHINee vids with the sombrero.

  29. This makes me so happy to see the reaction you get. It’s so weird. I don’t even know you and I almost started crying watching this video.

  30. Argh > . < missed you guys!!! T__T Are you guys any better now?
    P.S: I liked the song when you showed us your presents from Mexico (it gave me the feeling of Hogwarts students waking up on Christmas to see they got presents :D)

  31. Guadalupe Arenas

    lol moment when your name is pita. saw you at kcon.

  32. Simon and Martina, have you not realised that you two have become K-pop stars in your own right?

  36. celia_novelo

    P.D. If we organize a fanmeeting in or near Cancun would you be interest to come??

  37. Cartoonist62

    You guys are just so adorable :’) Glad you had a nice time :D

  38. Oh my…. If you were that sick you should have told us and we would
    have, nicely, understood, after all your health is more important than
    some pics with us… I even could have told you to go sooner! But, it
    was really a great time with both of you :)
    You asked why there were so many people cheering for you, well it’s ’cause you’re really great!
    For

  43. Maruja90

    “At the event, we tried warning people that we were sick, but people in Mexico were all so affectionate, and all gave their hugs to us freely, even at the risk of infection. Even cheek-kisses! Oh boy!”

    Yeah, that’s love ‘a lo latino’ for you guise! That’s how we roll. I’m not Mexican, but I think we are all the same in that aspect!

  44. Virginia Troncoso

    There’s other coffee shops we actually have a Mexican Versión but cooler of Starbucks Call Cielito Querido … Excelent Coffee and Design… for Real … It’s Great.

PS. i got a funny picture of Simon (My camera captured, the real feeling and true soul of a Dothraki Man Warrior!)..

  48.

  49. NOOOO I miss my Mexico foods and candies a lot!! Im jealous~~
    LOL you guys struggled way too much to make that heart there

  50. Kyomica Kei

    SIMON AND MARTINA SHOULD MAKE A MEET UP AT TORONTO NXT TIME YOU COME:D IT’LL BE SO FREAKIN AWESOME~<3
    —One of your omgsomany OOO SO NAAAASTIESw<

    PunkyPrincess92

    wow……unfortunately i really do think you guys have an antifan!!
    who on earth would waste their life voting down so many comments in row??
    loser!
    careless, careless, shoot anonymous, anonymous, heartless, mindless,…someone should really get you!!

  52. D: D: wow what were they doing to that baby in the first airport???

    and you guise have to come to chicago!! we all lubb you lots here too :)

  53. Omg the watermelon pops are so delicious but they are covered in chilli powder making them sweet and spicy. Most Mexican candies are covered in chilli powder so I guess it’s weird if havent grown up with them, but I’m so proud of you guys for trying them! Btw did you get to try any tamarindo candy? It’s so delicious and my favorite. Thank you for going to my native country, it means so much to me that you felt welcomed there. Love you guys!

  54. NaToTheWak

    Drinking water after eating something spicy is a BAD idea! Eat rather bread!

    Talking about bread, you still want to come and Eat Your Baguette in France, don’t you?

  55. look at the ad in the lower right corner and then look at the video

  56. thisisjustforfunval
    thisisjustforfunval

    I love, love those watermelon chile lollipops, but more so I love the mango ones. I’ve grown up with them so I think that makes all the difference. Then again those limon salt things people buy to use for beer, my friends and I eat, or should I say pour it into our mouths, straight out of the container. We’ve always wondered why our parents never stopped us from doing so when we were kids, and frankly it probably wouldn’t have stopped us XD

    And not to throw a damper on things, but Martina…you know if you’ve used your make-up while having pink eye you have to get rid of all of it right? It will just keep recontaminating your eye. My doctor made me replace all my eye makeup, it truly sucked but helped me from getting pink eye a third time ( I got it twice in a row).

    I’m glad you guys had a wonderful time in Mexico City meeting all your
    fans. Looks like you had a blast despite being sick and flight delays.
    Hope you two feel better soon.

  57. Yeah Mexico, that’s how you do it! lol, they scream loud, i can imagine them at concerts, they must be horribly loud xD well now i know what to send you guys! i’m going to ask my uncle from mexico to get me REALLY HOT CANDY’S and ill send it to you guys XD you guys will remember all the misery of your mouth burning hahaha!

  58. It’s so amazing how much you have grown in the last year! I mean, you could possibly be called a celebrity having so many loving fans all over the world. You guys are simply awesome at your work, so that I think you will grow even bigger and get more popular in the next time for sure! I started to watch your videos nearly two years ago and I’m so happy and proud you made it this far. I hope you’ll never stop being that adorable creative couple that you are now :3 I believe in you :)

  59. minty_chip

    Same here. I don’t understand how idols aren’t bawling when ever they get on stage. It must be so touching to see how many people love and support what you’re doing.

  60. Amanda Maffett

    Aw, you guys…I had no idea you were so popular in Mexico! All that screaming must have been overwhelming (I for one had to turn down the volume on my laptop, hah). But you were shown so much love…it’s very touching. :) Also, that candy looks fun! I’ve heard about a lot of chili and spicy stuff in Mexican candy which is why I’ve never tried it myself.

  61. oh my god you were in vancouver I WOULD HAVE DIED TO MEET YOU GUYSSSSSSS. COME TO CANADA AGAIN! meet us at the tim hortons LOL

  62. i really wanted to have a picture with you guys but if you were sick i understand , hope you make your new po box so i can send you a bunch of mexican candies you will love ( more candies) and the poster that i made 4 you that i didnt had the chance to give it to you :) hope also that you get well soon to enjoy the kcon in california , please come again soon i would love to have a little chat with you guys :)

  63. you guys are such troopers doing it all while you both were sick!

  64. Hi simon and martina could you please invite T-ARA ……i really missed them and i want to know how they are doing.

  65. Nazaret

    er my gosh! that looks like it was a lot of fun! I wish I could have been there. SOY UN DORITO! and the dude with the Super Junior pic on his laptop! lol SM being represented big time

  66. It was great meeting you guys, even if we couldn’t chat much. Please come back soon! I saw the earrings and bow I gave Martina in the video, I got all excited. I’m hoping to see you wearing them in a video someday! I’m glad you enjoyed your stay, we love you.

  67. I wish I could’ve gone to meet you ;A; I actually like those lollipops!

  68. Awww! I had tears in my eyes when you were greeted by all those people. It was funny watching you trying all those candies. Simon, you totally rocked it when you were singing ‘Eat Your Kimchi Style’. Hopefully you will feel better for K-Con!

  69. all you hear is Martina speak ahhhhhh she speaks again ahhhhhhhh lol.

  70. PunkyPrincess92
    PunkyPrincess92

  72. thanks for sharing your travel with us, you seem to have a lot of fun, you are always so cool & nasty hehe

  73. Oyeshi Ushi

    Dear Simon and Martina,
    With the presidential election coming up, do majority of Koreans pay attention to American politics? If they do which candidate (or political parties) do you see them supporting? Have your political views changed by living in Korea?

  74. Agg! I wish I could have been there! Evil Administration teacher, your super hard test didn’t let me go! But still, I’m glad you guys came to Mexico! I literally fell off my bed when Simon said: It tastes like salt, lime… and pain! xDD I totally love these lolipops. And yes, candies may have chile :P I hope you guys come back soon! I will do everything possible to go the next time … Not even my Administration teacher will stop me! >:D I love you guys, keep it up! :DDD

  75. ale lozano diaz

    I was one the nasties screaming outside the bathroom, simon posing was awesome :)

  76. Simon’s voice in the hotel room really sounded like Batman xD You guise looked like you had so much fun! I hope an event comes up where you can come to Montreal ><

  77. aww… I actually cried when you entered the hall and everyone started shouting!

  78. You guys look pretty good for being in a 6 hr flight and sick, lol.

  79. Lol! I love the fact that somehow you ended up in a Mexican Starbucks. Poor things, you got so terribly sick on your trip. I hope that by the time you get to Kcon that most of the sickness is over. Your bodies must be exhausted.

    Thanks for the live performance of Eat Your Kimchi Style. People were so singing along and it was awesome.

  80. Wow, what a reception. You guys are like pop stars! ^^ And when visiting a new country, I look for McDonalds and Starbucks just to see the difference lol.

  81. I’m so happy you have had a great time in Mexico, and yes, we are warming people ^^, that’s one of the things that I miss the most now that I’m abroad. I really died of envy when you tried the Mexican candies!!
    I’m not very sure if there are a lot of Chinese nasties, but if you come to China, for sure I’ll try to be there and meet you!!! Take care guys!

  82. Angelika

    it seems that you had a lot of fun in Mexico.. XD and Simon I love this gigantic nexican hat ;D
    hope your voice will be back soon :)

  83. blueivy888

    ahah, both videos made me laugh sooo much!! I wish I lived in Mexico, but I don’t: I live in France *_* So Simon and Martina you are welcome anytime in France! :) And I hope that Simon’s voice is well now, thank you eatyourkimchi for making my day much more fun! ;D Oh, and all the different candys that you eatened made me want to travel the world and taste all the candy’s!

  84. Amos Patiag

    Man! It’s so weird seeing you at the SFO airport, A-Side Terminal. I work there! I wish I caught you when you guys were here, but I work at night. Hopefully, when you come back to California (San Francisco, Bay Area, preferably), then i’d get to see you again. I saw a glimpse of you at the Korean Music Wave concert in Mountain View. I couldn’t believe it! Hahaha.

  85. omfg.. If you guys ever come to germany.. I WILL BE THERE

  86. YAY for Dothraki man tears. They probably burn through floors, right?

  87. you guys really had fun!!! you deserve all good things :) have lots of fun at KCON, I’ve never been to one, so through the video you make I’ll finally know how it is.
    ps: I loved the LOS NASTIES sign :D

  88. simon sounds like batman!
    “it tastes like…. salt, and lime….. and pain”

  89. OMYGOODNESS i hadn’t laugh so much in so long!!! i love you guys!!!
    I’ve been living in the US for almost ten years now, but I was born in Mexico City, though I haven’t gone back yet. Watching you guys sharing experiences I went through seriously made my day, all the candy, and the chicken lollipop was hilarious, I just never connected it to chicken flavor and i cracked up when Simon mention it XD! ohh it’s weird but I felt honored in sharing my culture with you guys,because in a way you guys inspired me to want to be in Korea some day and see that culture first hand! I wish I could have been there to try that delicious food and candy too!

    ahhh this made me so happy that you guys had an awesome time in Mexico City! My family is from Guadalajara, Mex. (i live in Texas) I was proud of my ppl! I love Mex. its my 2nd home. i’m actually going to Mex in a week for my aunts wedding! too bad that y’all didn’t spent more time in Mex. love the part with eating the candy especially the watermelon lollipops! need to lick off the nasty outside 1st before to get the nice yummy watermelon. the roll is the original version of the fruit roll-up that you buy at the supermarket (different colors= different fruits). the borrachitos are our fav candy! cant get drunk off that. and Tequila. y’all need to visit Tequila (the city) on the next trip to Mex.

  91. So glad you had a nice time here. I wasn’t able to go there but I was very close to the WTC (I was kinda stalking you from afar, about a km away, I could see the building anyway haha) I also had no idea you were that famous here! It was so nice to see everybody welcoming you. I had so much fun watching you trying all the candy! Obleas con cajeta are my favorites! (yes, I also like the watermelon lollipop). And Simon’s reaction to tequila was priceless. Hope you can come back some other time, and I’ll try to be there to meet you!

    So…. Thx for all ur videos and thx for promoting and giving all this information about the life in korea. :)

  93. Rebecca

    Yay!! I’ve been having Eat Your Kimchi withdrawals lol. What’s funny is that since you guys haven’t uploaded videos in a while it feels like you have been really far away, but really you guys were way closer to me than ever before (I live in Texas lol)!! Watching you eat the watermelon lollipop was hilarious!! We have those everywhere where I live. The first time I had one it was really weird and for a while I had to rinse off the chile powder stuff with water but now I really like them. :D

  94. A*Dream

    I REALLY LOVE BORRACHITOS! They’re my favorite! and I don’t like that watermelon lollipop XD haha XD You guys deserve this love and more! You were awesome and we all super appreciate the OMG BIG effort you made to stay there! even at your own risk! Nice you two are getting better now! rest please!

    From all A*Dream team! :)

  96. Simon get well soon!!! You sounded really bad… like you screamed for 3 hours in a concert ><
    I think you should give that chicken lollipop to Onew and see what's his reaction to it XD

  97. OMG I SAW MY GIFT AND THE “PAPER” YOU ATE WAS ONE OF MY GIFTS!!!! haha Oww…now I know why Simon like didn’t want to hug me, but it’s ok guys, i’m not sick and actually i’m really happy that i could meet you, talk to you, hug you and take a picture :D!!!
    We Nasties LOVE YOU because you make us laugh with your unique vlog, you share your life and experiences with US STRANGERS, and also help us to know more about the country that is far from us but we admire and want to get to know…HOW CAN WE PAY YOU FOR ALL THIS!!! (OBVIOUSLY with candies, and lots of love) THANK YOU GUYS!!!!! I’m glad you liked your trip down here :D Keep being so awesome!!!

  98. i will read this tomorrow, but as for the video…AMAZING! and p.s. if it had been a chicken lollipop, i’m sure Onew oppa would have loved it! P.P.S., its so cool to see our fellow Nasties! Can’t wait to see more in California! You Guys(meaning Nasties and S&M) rock!

  99. Paulina Marín

    yeah mexican people are too noisy ^ u ^ I hope you had a great time here, is charming the way you eat all those candies, oh try again with the watermelon lollipop actually is delicious in the core (your pain face are amazing) hahaha again thanks for coming

    oh yeah about the stomach problems we call it “la venganza de Moctezuma” (the Moctezuma revenge) is a classic that foreign people have it :S

  100. If you guys want to ever go to another country just ask fans for help, i bet lots of fans from the chosen country would be able to help with venues and stuff!~

  101. JustDense

    Awwww guise!!! *n* I wish I could have gone there to see you!! So I could fangirl by seeing you less than 100 meters away from my physical presence :P
    I’m happy that you got such a warm and welcoming response here!! I really never tought there would be so many Nasties in my own country :D (If I attended I could have even made some kpop friends :/)
    And cheez you must know: EVERY MEXICAN CANDY IS DELICIOUS. THERE IS NO EXCEPTION TO THAT RULE. We freaking rule in candy making ^^ (BTW, the first one you tried it’s pronounced “ah-teh” I love guava and quince/membrillo ones, specially with cream cheese *mouth waters*)
    Those tacos you ate were really stuffed o_O I know we pretty much put everything inside tortillas but I’ve never seen rice, meat, beans and idk what else in the same wrap xD
    Anyhow, I’m glad you had such a great time in here even if it was short :) Remember that you’re always welcome to visit us, Nasties here will be waiting for you!! Saranghae Simon and Martina!!

      Hey now hey now, I worked w/ some Mexicans around my age who always had Mexican candy and they had these suckers that looked like corn but had idk if it was like chili powder on them or what the crap but those things were beyond awful.

      All bitter, no sweet. But that’s all I have to base off of so yeah lol. I do love me some Mexican soda tho.

      • JustDense

        Oh those ones!! Yeah, that specific chilli powder is quite “bitter (more like salty with weird acidic taste)” but IDK, maybe because I’ve had them all my life I think they are tasty :P
        And yes, soda is also delicious!! Too bad I don’t drink soda anymore.

        • bball4224

          Yeah idk it’s just extremely funky. He claims they are good afterwards but I could never make it that far.

        • JustDense

          I swear to you they are really good after that weird chilli, all is sweet goodness, but to people that isn’t acostumed to that kind of powder it’s really icky, usually what I do is to leave one part without that chilli and then the flavors combine and tastes quite good.

        • bball4224

          Well he didn’t tell me it was better once you got past it til the next day lol, otherwise I’d have like washed it in the sink or somethin. Yeah I took two licks (idk why I took another after 1st one), gagged, and then whipped it at the ground.

          I mean I saw the powder and expected it to be slightly spicy or something (because I love spicy food, idk how it would be on candy so I thought I’d try) but instead it was just… awful tasting.
          He told me one of them was banana too and I LOVE banana flavored candy. If only he’d told me earlier.

          But seriously, why do they look like corn? Is it because of that corn w/ chili powder and stuff on it and they just wanted the suckers to look like that? Or what’s the deal? lol

        • JustDense

          Hahaha, awful foreign food experiences, it reminds me of the first time I ate wasabi, I didn’t expect it to be that spicy!!
          About the one shaped into a banana with that flavor, I’ve never head of it, I only know about banana taffy and bubblegum.
          And yeah, it’s to imitate the corn with chilli (usually has mayonaise and cheese too) so kids that can’t eat the actual one with spicy chilli can “enjoy” too, even if doesn’t taste like actual corn. (which is a good thing)

  102. lol, I’ve learned that whenever I visit my family in Mexico THESE ARE CRITICAL THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW:

    For those spicy lollipops: (my sister did this all the time)
    1)unwrap evil candy
    2)get a cup and pour water
    3) stick candy in the cup of water
    4)let it sit there and dissolve EVILNESS for a good 10 minutes or so
    5) enjoy nice and pure watermelon lollipop.

    Oh! If you happen to ever go again, I suggest lonches! THEY ARE sldfksjdf DELICIOUS.

    ^^ That’s basically it. I visit a different part of Mexico, so all the things I would recommend don’t pertain to Mexico City. ;A;

  103. I love how in the video of eat your kimchi style live
    some
    guy is like “Simon is so cute! I can’t believe it!”
    and some girl is like “i know he’s like a bear! ”

    LMAO! xD
    Iwish i was there ^_^
    love you guys

  104. I love how Simon hammed it up after you guys went out the second time for eat your kimchi style! XD

  105. EYK just face it, Mexico Loves you!! Nasties around the world love you!!! You have become some sort of Korean culture ambassadors, and you are loved for that. Don´t feel that you don´t deserve it!!!

  106. Simon did u really thought that was a chicken flavor lollipop? ¬_¬ really XD

  107. i think i died laughing at ya’lls expressions after trying the sucker. Simon was so sweet to share that one with you Martina! yeah.. sweet.. *laughs*
    seriously though, it had to be heartwarming to hear that crowd. they were deafening!
    I hope you both feel better very soon!

  108. You guys are pretty famous!! Now, all you guys have to do now is visit the east coast of the USA!

  109. Awww I love this vlog so much *-* probably because for the first time I’m part of it! I was there! I traveled from my city to Mexico City just to be there! One of the main reasons was to meet you guys, I really wanted a picture with you and have a little chat with you, but there was so many people D: so I just couldn’t do it! the only thing I could do was telling Martina she was so pretty when she was in the judges table XD I was right behind her. Anyway, the event was delayed and I waited and waited for the end of it so I could take a picture with you, but I was already late for my flight! so I couldn’t wait more D: at the end I had to literally RUN to the airport, got there VERY late and had to beg and cry to 3 different employees so they would let me get in the plane!
    Anyway, it was nice seeing you in person anyway :) you guys are amazing and so humble, please never change!

    • We feel SO GUILTY for not being able to speak with everyone at the end. Really, really terrible. But we had to go. The lineup was huge, and the security guards were kicking us out, and we were unbelievably sick at the time. Still, we felt so sad to not be able to say hi to everyone. We’re really, truly sorry :(

      • Don’t feel guilty guys! Really I’ve only heard good comments from the people who was there :) I think we all understood the situation so we’re not blaming anybody ^_^ Next time I’m going to set up a fanmeeting with you guys ^0^

  110. the watermelon lollipops are my favorite!! although i haven’t had them in a while…i used to always get them in candy favor bags during birthday parties when i was younger… good old days… ;D

  111. Michikohime

    OMG, I W-A-N-T that SOUP! I won’t rest until I found one… really.

  112. It must be pretty amazing to think about how far you guys have come!! From little homemade videos about life in Korea to having fans all around the world!! Congratulations on everything !! :) + you guys sound adorable with your little voices (Omg, do I sound crazy? haha + sorry if my comment doesn’t make sense, I’m extremely tired! :P)

  113. I´m there with the cartuline I love EYK *w*

  114. Elaine T.

    “…Please tell us that you’re not feeling sick. Or, if you are, we’ll do our best to deny responsibility!”

  118. I’m sorry you got so sick, Simon and Martina! Oh, and I can definitely testify to the fact that you can get nosebleeds from exhaustion. I’ve gotten them before and they’re definitely no fun :/ It looks like you still had a nice time there though! Now get some rest! None of us Nasties like seeing you guise sick!
