For those of you who read blog posts before watching the videos, be warned! This is a really long video. It’s not something fancy pants, either. We’re just sitting and talking, almost like a LiveChat, in a way, but we’re talking about memories, specifically ones from the opening of the Eatyourkimchi Nasty Studio
This video comes a bit later than we had planned. Our one year anniversary of our studio was actually December 31st, 2013. We were in Canada at the time, though. We only re-opened the studio at the beginning of February. We filmed this video right away. But because it was such a freakishly long video, it took us a bit longer to edit and publish. So it’s like our 1.2 year anniversary video, kinda!
But really, we had a tremendous year in 2013. From the studio opening, to the addition of Leigh and Soo Zee, to the store opening, to the tours and events, to the pop up store, to the EYKAs, to the YouTube Music Awards, and to all of the interviews and guest appearances from Kpop acts – it’s really been quite a whirlwind for us in 2013. Thank you all for being with us through this ride.
So we made this video in which we wanted to look back on some of our favorite moments and to tell some more stories about those moments and about ourselves as well. We’re rather transparent online, and you see a lot of what we experience and what we think, but there’s always more to the story. The camera and the editing can’t capture everything, right? Hopefully you see some more of how things are for us with this video, in a way.
Now that it’s 2014 we learned from some of the things we did wrong in 2013 and we’re hoping to change things up a bit in how we film and publish. I know one of the hardest things for us to do was to balance the work we did overseas with our video schedule, and whenever we traveled we’d miss out on some videos. We’re hoping to not do that this time around. We already went to Japan this year without missing our WTF and Music Monday vids. We’re also pre-filming videos for when we travel to different countries. This year we’ve already got some dates set for some of the places we’re going to visit (some new countries we haven’t seen before, and hopefully some new Nasties we can meet!), so we hope to have vids ready and filmed in advance for those of you Nasties not in those countries.
So, hopefully you don’t find this video too boring. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, and it’s not really in the style that we usually do our videos. It’s just something we really wanted to do, both as a video, and for ourselves, so we can remember the past as we look on to the future.
We’ve got some big things in store for 2014. Maybe even bigger than what we did in 2013. We’ve got some big announcements that we’re just sitting on. Some of you might already know about it from different leaks. We won’t acknowledge those yet, but our own announcement footage is filmed and edited and we’re waiting to announce it! But we can’t yet….not yet. So stay tuned by clicking on this button here below. You won’t miss a beat.
