Well, I WAS lonely, but not anymore! Martina’s plane just arrived a few hours ago! WAHOOO YAYYYY!!! She’s sleeping right now because of jetlag (it’s sooooo bad on the way back from Canada!), but she’s home at least! Yay! For those people who might ask “you should film a WANK now and upload it now!,” we’d like to say that filming, editing, and exporting take far too many hours to be able to do in one day. This video here was filmed on Saturday, for instance. So, even though I don’t feel as sad and mopey anymore, I still find it kinda funny to watch me be a sissy baby. Hopefully you find it funny, too :D

So, since Martina wasn’t around, I decided to WANK all by myself. And because I was gonna be so sad for having to film a video alone, I thought it’d be best to do what I felt like doing: eating all the gortdamn ice cream I could find! If I had a tub of Ben & Jerry’s I’d sit down and eat it all while crying over sad movies. Instead, I made a movie out of it, kinda.

Turns out the whole experience was crushingly disappointing. Baskin Robbins is a bag of meanie heads. I didn’t even take a few steps in there before I was phooeyed away because of the camera. Well, I didn’t want to be there anyways! It was all happy couples all lovingly looking at each other and making me barf. They sucked, so I wanted to leave. I left because I wanted to, not because I had to! So…there!

Then I went to an awesome Gelato place. It’s called Gelati Gelati. It’s in Hongdae, right beside Club FF, which is one of our favorite clubs to go to in Seoul, and it’s also a stone’s throw away from the studio. I like it so much that I thought, hey, why don’t I take a picture of their card and share it, because they’re nice. I recommend nice places run by nice people. So here it is:

Gelato Card

I would put in a Google Map but hellllllll it’s so difficult to do so. If anyone’s more adept at Google Mapping, and knows how to get to Gelato Gelati, please share in the comments, because I’m clueless!

Side note: I giggled a lot when I wrote the description to this blog post. If you haven’t read it, here it is: “I had to WANK by myself, and it was short, messy, and completely disappointing.” HAHAHA. OOOH DAT’S NASTY! Nasty because WANK is a mountain in Germany, and it’s quite a big mountain, so the sentence above is nasty because of its inaccuracy. That’s why…….*shifty eyes*

Anyhow, that’s it for this week! There are a few scenes that didn’t make the cut, like my being upset at being shat upon by a bird, literally a few seconds after leaving the studio. Like that wasn’t an omen from the gods that this day was gonna suck!


  1. This episode should be called: Sad Times Adventure Now Korea: The YOLO Edition. XD

  2. Simon you were too adorkable in this video.

  3. the world likes to read our innermost..

  4. Awww, I feel ya Simon… my honey and I do everything together so if we had been living in Korea awhile and he had to go somewhere without me I’d feel just as bad as you do :( We both have work from home jobs right now so we are around each other a lot lately :)

  5. OMG….Really?!?!? 7-11 as a landmark?!!?!?!?…At last count there were 6,621 7-Eleven stores in S Korea — and I’d swear that all but a handful were within walking distance of my Seoul apartment/job. 0_o

  6. The number of bad omens you went through was crazy pants…..the world can be a really scary place sometimes…I think the world likes to read our innermost thoughts at times and mess with us…just cause it can and is a mean bully and wants us to feel like feeble humans….grrr world.

  7. hahaha it would be better if you danced Hyuna’s ice cream. . . . really, not the edited one. . . . .owwwww sadly Martina’s not there. .. . . but your not lonely at all! you have your camera man, yehey!!!

  8. So, you stank’d it up rather than wank’d? LOL! Sorry, couldn’t resist. ;-)

  9. Simon how did you ever survive before meeting Martina!?

  10. Simon you are ridiculously hilarious alone. You should start a lonely series where each of you do videos alone. Or maybe just one or two videos. We nasties understand your humor as a couple but not so much as individuals, just sayin :P

  11. huh Ice cream guy cute… nah… Well maybe I am too old to see that…lol

  12. Sad Times Adventure Now Korea..
    Simon, you made a STANK! :D

  13. Fell and Cole’s Hongdae location had to close down because the building owner wanted to do something else with the space or something. However, they haven’t a second location at Galleria in Gangnam I believe. <3 Fell and Cole!

  14. Aw, poor Simon! I’m glad Martina was back and that she didn’t return to find Simon melted into a lonesome puddle. It was still a good WANK!

  15. lol simon wanking also is another word for masbating

  16. wow, that video was pretty awesome, hum… I mean the shots! no you loneliness xD…

  17. I think Martina might have conspired with all of your favorite places to pig-out on sugary goodness before she left so you wouldn’t overdo it, Simon. That’s why they’re all closed!

  18. I feel like “only if it is gelato” was a premonition of this day….

  19. does jjang really exist in school in korea? Like the one in manhwa?? or similar…or is it just a total of fiction?

  20. You know, your new audio pack has the theme song for the “Stuff you should know” podcast and that’s what I think of every time I hear it.

  21. Hey Simon, hear in Yucatan, my grandparents say that there’s an old belief that if you’re a victim of bird poo it means you’ll have something very lucky happen to you soon. So maybe it wasn’t an ‘bad’ omen after all?

  22. Simon yo really look different and sad, you don’t look like you. poor you really need Martina

  23. But seriously Simon, I LOVE LOVE LOVE, that you love your wife with all your heart, but at the very least you did seem to be with someone, possibly an intern, you were by no means alone! Also, this week should have been your time to hang with friends, or make more friends! SHEEESH!
    What I mean to say is it’s cute that you miss her, but it got to the point this week where it is borderline, OHMYGOSSSSHHHH (spoken with your and Martina’s inflection!) :]

  24. Loved this STANK! Simon looked like he was feeling down and holding back laughter at the same time. Maybe those were some symptoms of losing his mind (in rippito flippito sipo slow motion) when Martina’s not around for too long?
    And oh, how much I would like to have ice-cream now! Simon, if you ever happen to visit my hometown (yeah, sure ;p) you have to visit coffee/ice-cream shop where I used to work, they have delicious ice-cream, including cheesecake taste :)

  25. I kinda feel bad that I’m laughing because of how mopey Simon was acting…

  26. “Sad Times Adventure Now Korea”
    Simon, it’s a S.T.A.N.K!! :D You so Nasty Simon, with your seductive dance moves and your STANKS.

  27. HAHA I literally JUST ate some icecream!!! it was orange chip, which is orange icecream with chocolate chips in it. AMAZING.

  28. Simon, forget about google maps to find places in Korea. Use the maps from daum.net

    Here’s a route from the EYK studios to the Gelati Gelati place.

    As a bonus, there’s a street view.

    Unfortunately, the streetview is from May 2012. Apparently the Gelati Gelati place wasn’t there yet…

    Here’s the link: http://dmaps.kr/dimx

  29. Martina is Back!!!! No more Sad Simon!!!!

  30. Being shat on by birds is good luck. Apparently.

  31. Im actually eating icecream now ^^……and Simon you seem to be having a bad day… I mean its one thing after another….*sigh…* I guess martina is like a good luck charm when shes around lolll ^^

  32. I’ve seen people wearing that hat (the one you’re wearing when you’re dancing to Ice Cream and that Martina girlified) around a bunch in the last year… Then I stopped seeing them for a while. Saw your LiveChat where you explained that Martina ladyfied them, and then saw an old woman wearing one about a week later! I feel like Canada has a bunch of sneaky S&M fans that are identified silently to one another by their headgear.

  33. Omg screw Hyuna, Simon is the skit!

  34. i felt bad for you simon, until i remembered that that’s pretty much how all of my days go. *going for ice cream*

  35. Poor Simon, but I couldn’t stop laughing and then wanting to hug you. I am happy that you guys have your studio and Leigh. I was starting to get sad thinking about what Simon would be like if he was stuck home the entire time.

  36. I know this literally means nothing to you Simon, but ice cream man was pretty cute.

  37. Simon, if you type 407-8 Seogyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, South Korea in Google Maps, it’ll take you to the right place (you just have zoom in as much as possible). I tried “walking around” with the Street View option and yeah, that’s the place, although the images shown are from 2009.

    Anyway, great STANK(?) and I’m happy Martina’s back so that you can quit being sad. :D

  38. Aww Poor Simon it looked like your eyes were getting a lil watery a few times….you really love Martina ALOT ^_^
