The Eatyourkimchi Studio Anniversary Video!

March 6, 2014

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.

  2. HAHA! I always wondered if Martina was like “Woah… Did Key just touch my hair??” Despite the *BS* yall unfortunately experienced afterwards… did yall have a good time interviewing SHINee?? Had they heard of yall? “I’m so curious, yeah!” (corny pun intended)

  3. It feels like Soozee and Leigh have been a part of the EYK crew for way longer than just one year! Congratulations to a fantastic year and I can’t wait to see what happens in 2014 :D

  5. You shouldn’t be worried about us finding you boring :) I especially enjoyed it since I successfully watched every video you released last year (a new years resolution that actually happened) and was familiar with all the videos you talked about. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us this year!

    Congratulations to all of you for your great achievement for creating another wonderful year of content! Your constant positive attitude is really uplifting to me and helps me motivate myself to keep working just as diligently while still enjoying the fun times that come around naturally while I prep for my eventual trip to Korea in another two years or so! :D

  7. OMG YES! LOVE IS THE MOMENT! Everything time that song plays in Heirs *always playing* I can’t help but laugh because it is so horrible and corny!

  8. The footage for that failed D.I.C.K.S. episode MUST be released. That’s it, my job here is done haha.

    Just kiding. It was a great year guys! I’ve been following you since 2011 and it was great seeing you guys doing better and better. I might not have agreed with everything that you’ve done, but you are some very nice and sincere people that I enjoy to come back and watch every week. Well done so far and good luck!

    PS: Martina’s songs are awesome, keep them coming! (More of the songs and less of the thrusting… that would be awesome in my books lol)

  9. “Oh my God I killed a child.”
    HA! Completely forgot about that part of the GD skit. I’m still laughing about it two hours later.

    Thanks for this and all of your other awesome videos, this year and many years before that. It’s great to see how the studio has grown in a year, but especially the crew. Love all the wonderful interviews and guest appearances. The uBEAT interview is still my favorite interview to date. But can’t leave out K.Will’s awesome reaction to Martina knowing Simon’s shower habits, unknowing that you guys are married.

    Hopefully I’ll try more of your recipes soon but for know I’ve only tried the Pajeon. It’s delicious, I just seriously suck at making it. I suck at making regular pancakes so I shouldn’t have been surprised. The dipping sauce is always the bomb though.

    Can’t wait to see what this year has in store for the EYK crew and us Nasties!

    • MmM

      “Ayo, I’m an adult!”
      That was, by far, my favourite GD of the year. I had to pause the video because I was laughing so hard.

    • I am a huge GD fan but that was so funny

      2 years ago
    • Oh YESSS! GD skit was hilarious! lol
      And uBEAT interview is the most awesome interview ever! I’m still rewatching it from time to time and still ROFLing! It would be great if S&M had the whole UKISS at a studio this year cos they always are missing someone of the members at their UKISS footages >.<

      • I still love how their first spontaneous interview with U-Kiss starts. AJ “I’m the guy who wrote the r pie thing” Oh no, run! lol

        I think everyone is in the first one by the end, except the camera over heats and we only see Dongho for a moment. Either way I love with EYK and U-Kiss get together. It would be wonderful if they could all regroup again for an interview this year at the EYK studio. All six of them playing in the marshmallow!

  10. Aww, Happy Aniversary guys! I can’t wait till I have time later today to watch this. I think your break over the holidays was well deserved with how hard you guys had been working. 2013 was a crazy full year for you. I will admit I seriously missed your videos, and since I’ve watched almost every video you’ve ever made I had nothing to watch. Here’s to an even better 2014!!

  11. Martina I love your songs on KMM!!! When I watched that GD KMM and heard the song I was at a computer room at my university and tried my best not to laugh outloud! :’D

    I hope you won’t take that long break as you had during new year…. it was loooooooong… haha I need my EYK videos to cheer me up and procrastinate… I mean…
    Oh and lastly, for some reason I can’t always access your pages. Like this one I watched the video, refreshed and only showed me a white page and didn’t reload it until now that I tried. Has happened before and just wondering is it just me though it’s only your site…

  17. Simon, Martina, SooZee and Leigh, I’m grateful that you all have spent another year producing videos that has made me laugh even in the worst of times. Looking back at the videos you’ve produced, I’ve realised that you all have made a large impact on my life even if it was just a smile and laugh. Thanks guys. Thank you for all you’ve done for us viewers and thank you for all the future videos that will make me and every other Nasty out there happy. Congrats guys! :)

  18. Really, it seems waaaaaaaaaay longer that the EYK crew has been around, but then again I guess I’ve only been around for a year….. It is crazy how much stuff you have done in this last year! So happy for all of you and this year you need to come to England, I don’t care what city just come pleeeeease :D

  19. One question for Soozee – where do you get your hair done? I’m having a hard time finding a good place down here in Daegu to dye my hair purple, so I might just wait till we’re up in Seoul to get it done. Suggestions?

  21. LOVE ISSSS THE MOMENTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

    2 years ago
  22. Congrats!^_^ I came for the TL;DRs but every one of your videos have been watched at least once now! After watching this video, however, I feel like I need to go and rewatch a few of last years’ ones – I forgot how hilarious they are! Especially the cooking segments – these need to come back in force this year! XD

    Ps. I’m loving the ‘Love is the Moment’ moment at the end there… I feel like someone needs to go back in time and stop Heirs from being made… (I managed to watch it all but I only stayed for Chan Young and Bo Na, and Choi Young Do – from about episode 3 onwards).

  23. I NEED SPOILERS!!! I can’t handle the pressure of waiting for your announcements :( K. Now off to watch the vid lol

  24. I love that Leigh and Soo Zee are dressing alike – me and my lovely best friend got really bad after we lived together for a few years and even now if we are meeting up we have to call beforehand and make sure we don’t wear the same stuff.

  25. Happy Anniversary!! ^^ Fun times last year. Also, is it just me or are there a lot less ads/layout changes?

    2 years ago
    • The ads are still there, but laid out differently, so content and writing is highlighted instead. We’re working on changing up the font size and layout as well to make it easier to read altogether. Hope to get that fixed up soon!

      2 years ago
    • Yep, good eye. They have been tweaking the layout a bit to make it more mobile friendly.

      Cheers, Natz

      • The ‘ascending’ tab on the charts is new right? I was like “woah I can re-live 2011” lol

        2 years ago
        • Yes it is. We had the option to look at older videos on the back end so it has been made an option on the chart. Quite handy for people looking for nostalgia or for newbies who want to explore older videos.

          Cheers,
          Natz
