Ladies and gentlemen, this is what we came to Singapore for! We’re taking part in the YouTube Fanfest powered by HP, and Day 2 of the festival was the day that we went on stage. That was yesterday. And now that it’s done, we can show you what our day was like.

But first, here was our event, in case you missed it.

 

If you’re interested in watching the whole event, and you have 4 hours to spare, here’s everyone else, including Ryan Higa, Boyce Avenue, Nicko’s Kitchen, Joseph Vincent, and more!

 

Phew! Now that THAT’s done with, we could go on to do other things! You’ll see what we ate today when we publish that video tomorrow (tomorrow? I’m not sure if we’ll have time for it tomorrow. We’ve got another big event we’re going to!), but soon you’ll see it! Soon.

Anyhow, after the event we hung around with a bunch of cool people, like MyChonny, David Choi, Ryan Higa, Chester See, Nicko’s Kitchen, Wesley from WongFu, and other people. Everyone’s really nice! It’s odd for us, because – though we’re YouTubers – we don’t really feel that connected with the YouTube community, because we’re so far away from other countries where the community is really thriving. YouTube Korea’s growing, yes, but when you talk about the big names in YouTube, it’s mostly people from other countries you talk about, you know? So we felt a bit out of place at first, but talking to everyone was really awesome and inviting. Ryan’s really jetlagged, and has been working a lot on other things. Wesley’s a really fun guy, and Chonny’s hilarious. Nicko and his family are lovely, and we asked them a lot about Australia and where we should visit, if we did happen to visit this year. Joseph Vincent’s really ultra friendly as well. His manager’s freaking awesome, though, and knows comics as much as we do, it seemed! We also met Joe Perry in the green room while we waited to go on. Didn’t talk to him much, but he was pretty cool as well!

Also, hope you like the never before seen footage from our interviews. We’ve been holding on to that for a while now, and thought that this was gonna be a cool time to share it. Ha! We’re already seeing it giffed on Tumblr.

That’s it for now! See you guise tomorrow for our LiveChat, hopefully! We’re off to prepare for stuff. I’m thinking that Friday might be a free day for us, finally. Hopefully. We’ll see!

    Yay! Its so awesome to catch up to you guys on a lazy memorial day monday! <3 Thanks for your awesomeness :D Seriously. Did you manage to visit all the places Bourdain did? :D

    You were great on stage :) I know I’d probably scatter on the ground XD Thank you for the BTS! :D They were awesome!! :D

    ♥♥♥♥♥♥

  3. Yay we finally got to see Spudgy-Kpop stars interactions aha ;D

  4. Ah!!!!! You so NASTY!!!! Thanks guise for being awesome. And that BTS footage was daebak!!! Block B – I ❤ those derp faces!!!

  5. THANK YOU for bringing me the answer to the question I’ve wondered for years: “Why does soohyun never change his hair style (not that I have a problem with it <3) those bonus clips were an amazing gift and I thank you for them :D

    I can see why you feel that way about not being connected in the Youtube community. Because most, at least a general good amount are in the LA area. Ryan, David, Chester and WongFu are all friends and did videos together, and some other popular names like Kevin (kevjumba), Smosh, etc. And yeah. But I’m happy you guys did get to meet and maybe you guys will feel more closer and connected through it. Because I really find the Youtube “stars” and community really close and awesome together. And it’s just funny to watch like a vlog or something with youtubers because if they’re all in a group together, they all have their cameras out recording the same thing xD

    • Also, the Asian American youtubers also have their joint project/channel YOMYOMF. Actors like Sung Kang ( Fast and the Furious) and others are also involved in that channel. And they also had they Next Youtube star show, and they also travel together to do shows all around the country. They seem to all be pretty tight. Whereas in Korea, it is just Simon and Martina who do this sort of stuff related to youtube.

      Kpop uses youtube a lot to promote to the outside of Korea fans. I also know that mnet america tries a bit to push their shows ( jjang, DFLA) on youtube as well. But there is usually a lag between it being shown on TV and being published on youtube.

    I’m so happy that Eat your Kimchi has a lot of success BUT…….. know that they released unseen footage about K-pop stars won’t it be great if they did a whole show about things that have never been seen I KNOW I DO, is their hope for it one day i can only dream

  8. Hi Simon and Martina!

    so i came across this tumblr called unpopular EYK opinions, and I was wondering if both of you came across it as well. I do not know why someone would dedicate a whole tumblr to just say things they don’t like about EYK. There were some people on there who actually offered suggestions to both of you and other constructive criticism which is fine, but most of seemed like pure hate and nagging. Have anyone else came across this blog?? Why can’t these people just offer their insight to both of you directly? I know everyone is entitled to their own opinions but it is pure hate and ridiculous nagging that I cannot stand. Seriously, this site had a lot of bullying-like comments, and that’s what makes me sad. I think people need to remember that no one is perfect, and you guys (Simon and Martina) cannot satisfy everyone. I am sure you get a lot of hateful comments, and I appreciate the fact that you are still yourselves despite all that. I really like all the things on your blog. Sure, I may have some disagreements with some of your opinions about certain songs but you always manage to make me laugh =). Congrats for having soo many fans in Singapore eventhough they went a tad crazy =P but that is because they were so excited to see you lol. I think you remind us all, fans or not, to be ourselves and love ourselves for who we are. Thank you, Simon and Martina! =)
    I hope both of you have a great week in Singapore.

    – Tea

    • Lol, yes actually we are quite aware of those sites and blogs. We, the mods actually try to read them ever so often to see if there is some valid criticism that we can use to make ourselves better ( we mods also get hate too). Of course, it still sucks when all you read is hate all the time, so I know that sometimes I take a break from reading it.

      It is really hard to get away from the hate comments. Actually even when I was looking on twitter for pictures from Singapore that the fans took, I saw hate comments speaking about EYK and Simon and Martina. I think people often don’t realise and sometimes don’t care that Simon and Martina are just normal people who can read those comments quite easily. It can make them sad.

      When something becomes popular, then there are always people who will dislike it and believe that it should not be popular. So we take it all with a grain of salt, and step away from it if it makes us feel bad. That’s why it feels awesome when nasties are really nice and say positive things to us. It washes away all those icky feelings. Videos like the fans meeting S&M and being so nice make me feel really happy.

      Cheers,
      Natz

      • Hi Natz! I appreciate your feedback. Yeah I agree with the fact of taking things with a grain of salt. I also appreciate the fact that you look over things for valid criticism. I know a lot of people in my life who cannot take ANY criticism. For that, EYK and Simon and Martina has earned even more of my respect =). Yes, I am so glad there are so many nasties for EYK and Simon and Martina. It is seriously amazing how large this fanbase is so congratulations again. Also, I appreciate your work as as a mod and well as the other mods, I know it is a tough job to do since I used to mod a blog for someone else. I see great things in addition to what is already happening in the future of EYK and Simon and Martina. Congrats again and best of luck!

        – Tea

    • to sat the truth i wish u didnt say it otherwise eyk will start to go on the internet

      • Hi! =) thank you for your feedback! hrm, can you clarify what you were saying so I can better understand what you mean?

        • She means, she prefered you not bringing it up here where s&m could see it and read the hateful comments.
          But I’m sure they already knew its existence.

        • ohh okay, yeah the mod just told me that they knew of its existence. I simply wanted to aware them is all. Other than that, I am thankful for Simon and Martina’s vibrant and uplifting personalities and even knowing about these hateful comments, they are strong and stay true to themselves which I greatly admire.

    …You must get given a lot of Doritos :)

    Block B derp faces, I love the part were someone says “The interviews about to start” while ya’ll are all seriously goofing off. Eric Nam giving Spudgy treats, come on guys seriously your interview with him is how I fell in love with him and this just made me fall even more so. uBeat talking about the infamous Soohyun lack of forehead shots. I love it, I’m one of those who spazzed on this very blog about Soohyun’s three second forehead shot. It’s like seeing the glowing light coming out of the brief case in Pulp Fiction for me. Great interview guys! Love it!

    • I remember your comment about Soohyun’s forehead. The fact that Kevin brought up the same subject in the uBeat interview makes me wonder if Kevin read through the comments on Standing Still’s page… and if he’s done the same when other U-Kiss videos have been on the charts.

      *remembers writing some crazy comments on Stop Girl’s page due to severe sleep deprivation* o.0

      • thisisjustforfunval

        Ever since I found out Kevin is an EYK fan, I’ve always suspected him of reading comments here. Possibly even some of the other members doing so as well. Oh gosh the idea still makes me blush that my Soohyun forehead love spazzing got back to him via Kevin. Makes me blush even more thinking that comment in some off hand way lead to their conversation about it in their interview. Ok, they internet just made the world small and my head slightly big hahaha. I’m going to go stare at Soohyun forehead and come back down to reality XD

        • Haha, it’s hard to dismiss those suspicions, however fantastical, when it is actually slightly possible that one of the members read your comment since we know they like EYK. :) I guess we’ll never know.

          Here, I made you a gif to facilitate your forehead staring. :P

        • thisisjustforfunval

          ^_^ Feeding my fascination! Thank you!

          It’s still mind blowing to know that it really is possible that one of them may be reading our conversation at this very moment :-O

        • Hey, just fyi, I made a second gif because I realized after I made the first one that there’s a second short bit in which he’s looking directly at the camera. I’m a perfectionist so I couldn’t help but make a second one in honor of his rarely seen forehead. ;) I edited my original tumblr post, so the addition should be reflected in your reblog of it.

        • thisisjustforfunval

          Thank you! I re-blogged it since it didn’t show the second one. The more Soohyun forehead the better. It has been gifted to us and we should enjoy it in all it’s glory. LOL! Oh gosh, I think my fascination is an obsession. He needs to fluent his forehead more often.

          Don’t worry, I’m horrible at posting gif’s on tumblr. I think I’ve only posted one of my own gif’s ever and it was a giant headache at that time. Thank you again for the Soohyun forhead gif’s! ^_^

        • You’re welcome. ^^

          lol, I’m going to become paranoid if I think about this for much longer. If one of them is reading this, I’m sure they’re getting a good laugh out of it. ^_^

  11. BLOCK B!!!!!!!!! Thank you for sharing that clip!!! :D
    It looked like so much fun there!
    Are you guise going to make a FAPFAP in Singapore?

  12. Amira L. Moore

    A bit off topic…but not…

    I’m I the only one that thought the interviewer was SUPER HOT?! Anybody know his name? Or his address? lol :3

  13. Did anybody else think the interviewer was kind of terrible? As I watched parts of the live stream yesterday, I got the impression he hadn’t exactly researched the people he was going to be interviewing.

    • fuuko4869

      My family, on the host:

      My mom: Is he half white?
      My sister: uuuuggggh can we skip him already. He’s so annoyiiinggg
      My dad: They should’ve gotten a youtuber to do the hosting too. Isn’t there a youtuber that does interviews? *cough cough*
      My friend: (when his mic died, and he offered to repeat himself) NO NO NO NO just frikkin get the artist already!
      Me: I wanted a Singlish accent :/

    • Terrible? Not at all!! Please, you do your research on terrible interviewers because he is not one of them…

    • Bronwen Bernstein

      Not really – he seemed very enthusiastic to me, but he probably isn’t a Nasty, as he might be flown in from HP to do this – he cant research all the YT Stars as it would get majorly confusing, and he probably doesn’t have time. Plus, he is trying to get non-fans to watch them and understand – thus all the in jokes have to be explained for their benefit.

  14. Emily Cowles

    Love when you guys go places cause then I get fun videos every day! Keep up the good work!

  15. ^_______________^

  16. FriedChickenOnew

    lol was that chonny behind simon at 5:25?

  17. AHHHHH ALL THE EXTRA FOOTAGE WE NEVER SAW AHHHHHHH BLOCK B SILLYNESS AND ERICxSPUDGY LOVE!!!

  18. I have to give you guys a lot of credit for getting on stage since you’ve said how nervous you were. In that moment when you were in the shadows side-stage to when you started walking, even my heart started going a bit with anxiety the moment all those fans screamed! No wonder you were taking shots after

  19. You guys were awesome on stage. Also glad to see it was a much friendlier host on the second night, I was really worried for you guys that whoever was interviewing you wouldn’t know anything or would be rude (few incidents on the first night, poor Natalie Tran).

    Also very cool to see other youtubers, especially the aussies!

  20. We got to see the Block B vs. EYK derp showdown at last ;-;

  21. The mention of B1A4 made me happy (I’ll be waiting for the video S&M) and holy cow Block B!

    Free food tastes best? Simon might just be Dutch, we love us our free stuff!

    But it sounds like you are having a blast. And good to see so many nasties from Singapore!

  23. Liza Ann Acosta

    I am so very proud of you! Mordney present! Did you see that?

  24. Sophiainkorea

    Hey Martina, what’s the backstory on Ryan’s tweet? You guys did so well, by the way!

  25. it’s David Choi oh god oh god oh god oh god OOHHH GOODDD

  26. I’m so glad you’re having a good time here, although the weather is ridiculous!

    Enjoyed the video and your interview at YTFF, and just wna say, Martina you are so super skinny now! No wonder people are coming up to you at clubs and shouting “CAN I BUY YOU A DRAANK”!

    Oh btw, those green chewy coconut ball things that you were given are called Ondeh Ondeh. Little balls of asian exploding love. oh. wait… i just heard it being said the way i typed it…. … oh well. NASTY FOR LIFE.

  27. Annie

    Martina as Hyori!? Can’t wait!

  28. I just FO SHO laughed OUT LOUD at Martina’s “I Got a Badge Chicken.” OMG.

  29. fuuko4869

    Oh I saw @soluiz!! She was the second person to take a photo with you :D

    So since I’ve met Soluiz, and she’s met you, and you’ve met MFBTY, and MFBTY has met Tony Stark, and Tony Stark has met Jeremy Renner…..doesn’t this mean that I’ve kinda met Jeremy Renner? :D

    ok don’t mind me just delusional fangirling

    Yeah so it was really cool seeing you chilling with other youtubers. Glad to hear you had fun with Wesley too, he’s such a cool guy!! (not that I’ve met him, but just from the videos I’ve seen…yeah.)

    I’m kinda proud of all the Aussies there. My friend met Joseph Vincent at Monash Uni once. And Chonny’s from Melbourne – did he give you any suggestions of where to go? :D

  30. Winifred Hwang

    Haha you met David Choi. He came to my university with a bunch of other youtubers (Joseph Vincent included). His friend drew a penis on a jug of water >_>. Surprised there was no Clara C! I’m super jealous you guys got to meet Ryan Higa.

  31. When you kissed Martina, it reminded me when Meemers was sucking on her ear!

  32. Annie

    The bug is back. #comeback season

  33. cup noodles! Go get real food you guys! anw so cool to see you all hanging out with other youtubers. Start of beautiful friendships haha. Who’s the girl beside David? Is she a youtuber too?

  34. Awesomeness you guys! I’m super sad I missed you live but I’m glad that they put it back up!!

    And there is no way you looked nervous at all! I think Nastyness defeats Nervousness in a decisive victory!

  35. Angel Mitchell

    Okay, when I saw all of Block B’s faces like that, I immediately thought

    “I’M SORRY I COULDN’T SAVE YOU” hahahahaha

  36. NaToTheWak

    Hey guise! I watched you live, and I was amazed at the exclusive footage of Block B’s interview, I was sure we would never see it! How come you suddenly had the right to show it?

    Great prestation guise, you were perfect and I think you introduced very well your videos for people who don’t know you (and that’s not easy!)

  37. JammySmoochie

    …I got a badge chicken. I got a badge in my chin. LMAO.

    Thanks for the awesome videos guise. Totally made my gloomy day. Seriously, you’re becoming less and less awkward in interviews. Good job!!!

    And the unreleased footage!!! PURE GOLD!!! Block B pwns everyone. I mean, how cool can they get? And dat sexy Lee Hyori make up. Dayum. Martina be slaying. And in behalf of all the Bilasaraptors/BANAs, THANK YOU for the shout out! Don’t worry, we’ll keep voting for Bilasa!

    And last but definitely not the least, MyFREAKINGchonny!!! Glad my favorite YouTubers have hang out. :D Enjoy the rest of your Singapore stay!!! :D
