Oh! This is such a difficult video for us. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is (probably?) the last time you’ll see a video of us playing around in Bucheon. We’ve been apartment hunting in Seoul for a while now, but we finally found the perfect one, and we’re moving on Tuesday morning. You’d be shocked at how hard it is to find a place when you’re picky about window angles due to filming in your living room! Hehehe…try explaining that to a real estate agent. “Um…the windows face the wrong way; this L shape living room won’t work for Music Mondayl there is no wall for the kpop chart updates…” *crazy eyes from agent*

So, now that we’re officially going to be living in Seoul, we’ll be able to start office/studio space hunting, too! I’m thinking, right beside the YG Entertainment building. BUUUUAHAHAHHAAAAA!! *buys binoculars* Just joking! *puts binoculars away* We’re not actually close to the YG building. We can’t get the new studio yet, though, until the fundraiser is finished, though we’d love to start looking now! Unfortunately, Indiegogo policy is that you can’t change the deadline for fundraiser’s once it’s gone live. We really didn’t know we’d reach our goal at all! But that’s another story. We’ll keep you up to date with the studio hunting once we get settled into the area!

Anyhoo, at 9AM on Tuesday the movers are coming…and we’re probably gonna be up till 4AM working on Music Monday. DON’T FAIL US NOW COFFEE!!! So we wanted to spend today’s WANK showing off Bucheon for one last time, and pointing out all the places to us that hold special memories for us. I’d like to take the time to do a little trip down memory lane time breakdown:

May 2008: we arrived in Bucheon and move into our first very cozy office-tel which overlooks the big central park. We live there for three years while we are still teachers and working on our blog at the same time.

June 2011: Martina quits teaching and we move (up the street) to our current office-tel, and we both work on our blog full-time.

September 2012: After scrounging up enough money for a business visa, we’re moving into our new office-tel in Seoul, where we plan on having new adventures in a brand new neighbourhood! It will be our first time to ride our scooter in Seoul! Scary? I don’t know yet! Ohh, now Spudgy is a city dog! :D

Hmmm. That memory lane should have had more dates in it, shouldn’t it have? Maybe not. Keep it short and sweet!

Last thing I want to say about Bucheon: before we came to Korea, and we were told that we’re not living in Seoul, but Bucheon, we thought that we’d be living on a farm somewhere and snuggling up to cows at night. We had no clue what our area would be like. We were totally shocked when we came here to see such an awesome, bustling city. It’s grown so much since we first moved in, and we’re hoping that, now that we’re leaving Bucheon, people will have a better idea about it than what we had when we first came. We love you Bucheon! We’re going to miss you!

Otherwise, besides the main video, we’re also including a little extra video of Simon strapping on a helmet cam and scootering around the city pointing out some of the areas we hung out in for our WANKS, FAPFAPS, and many other videos. I hope you all enjoy and will look forward to the new adventures we will all be going on together in our new neighbourhood!

  1. I must have your backpack!! Sooo cute! ^^

  2. Maybe this is a dumb question, but why can’t you guys have your business based in Bucheon? Is it a business decision to be closer to the music action in Seoul? Or is there some rule where foreigners have to be licensed there? BTW Martina you totally made me tear up. Don’t cry! No crying! You’re too cute to cry. T.T

  3. You two are so lucky that you live in Korea. I’ve been wanting to move there for a while now, but we don’t have the money to do so. :) By the way, I love your videos. Keep up the great work! <3

    Good Luck on your new place. Being in and out of Korea myself I can relate to heartbreak of goodbyes.

    On another note, Bucheon looks like downtown Jeonju, which looks like Sindabang in Seoul. Um…

  5. I’ve been lurking that long?!?! LOL I love you two so much & I’m so happy to see your success grow. It’s good to see good people like you’all just conquer Korea bit by bit… with the help of spudgeeee & meeeems, you shall rule ober the world… mwahahahaha
    Can’t wait to see the new place soon. Hooray (^0^)/

  6. I can’t believe how naive (not meant in a bad way) you guys were re: your fan base. Once I checked out indiegogo when it was only like $2K or so I thought 45 days… wtf… probably’ll take 3 days tops. It’s Seoul too, so you guys’ll need the money just to get a half-decent place. I knew you guys would make it into the BIG… i mean, semi-not-poor time, and you will make it BIG one day, sooner rather than later.

    Can’t wait for the next vid from you guys.

  7. misakichu12

    Aww, I really love these videos <3 even if I just recently became a fan, I can just imagine how hard it is to leave the place where it all started. Love you guys~ & I wish you the B E S T in Seoul :3 FIGHTING!

  8. April Smith

    Oh Yeah Spudg and Meemers FIGHTING!!! (haha sorry for the pets pet names)

  9. April Smith

    OHG My heart completely fell straight out of my hinside when I saw this statement “Oh! This is such a difficult video for us. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is (probably?) the last time you’ll see a video of us playing around in Bucheon.” Wooo I need Oxygen… Simon and Martina you guys dont understand I’m such a fangirl for you guys I was in mid tears… I’m still a little teary eyed though haha… But I hope the best for you guys and I’m praying on your growing success S&M FIGHTING!!!

  10. i bet you get this question a lot; what program do you use for your videos?

  11. Aaw, always sad to say goodbye!
    In Norway we don’t even pernounce the y in Hyundai. They just say “Hundaiiii” here… lool.

  12. builtbymachines

    I have this really weird, far-off, distance-y, nostalgia feeling.

  13. oh my gawd. i got sooo emotional while the video proceed. i think it all started from seeing martina crying T^T at the end i almost cried too T^T it’s really sad u hav to leave such a memorable city T^T but seoul is waiting~!! :D hope u’ll build even more precious memories there :D n waitin to see the vid from ur new appartment~!! also don’t forget to give us ur new address for the fanmail~!! or… the old one will be still valid…?? XD

  14. I’m back to this video to wish you guys a happy move!!!! though by now..its already happened….o.O its 4:31 A.M Tuesday morning for me….time travelers!! lol…GOOD LUCK IN SEOUL!!!!!!!!

  15. I watch your videos every time I don’t want to work! Such good procrastination material.

  16. Also, do you guys notice that the patch of fur on Meemer’s right side looks like a hearts? 8D

  17. I’m actually tearing up a little bit right now, you guys :’D

  18. and I cried~ hahahahaha good luck guys! :DD

  19. I am looking forward to your tour video of your new apartment and office.

  20. doublecitrus

    In your video I noticed a bike path beside the sidewalk and lots of bikes parked at HomePlus. Could you guys talk about cycling infrastructure there and whether biking has become more popular recently? Here in NYC, the popularity of cycling has seriously boomed the last couple of years.

  21. OF COURSE IT HAS TO BE AN APARTMENT TOUR !!! :D Good luuuuck :D

  22. codegeass2009

    *sob* So many memories TT_TT

  23. Pelmeshka

    When I watch your videos, I feel like I know you in real life. That is probably because you are incredibly senсere and open to other people. I’m so happy for you, that you’re moving to Seoul, but at the same time I’m a little bit sad with you, because we all will miss this place in your videos. Good luck to your “great four” in moving :) Can’t wait already for Seoul videos :)

  24. i was thinking if you guys can make a video of the studios you visited and let the nasties vote for which studio you should rent for your new office.

  25. I’m impressed with how well your campaign’s doing — and I just came off biting my nails over the Hands of Fate Kickstarter campaign. :) Good luck!

  26. Wishing you all the best in Seoul! I’m so happy I stumbled onto your videos on Youtube (thanks Gangnam Style!) and I’ve spent hours watching your videos. They are so fun to watch and I really learned a lot about Korea from you guys. Keep up the awesome work and stay true to your nerdy and nasty selves!!

  27. Eryfa

    Wow, watching this, I feel so nostalgic for you guys!

  28. not ok!!! you made me cry one minute in!!! whahhh! but it’s so exciting!

  29. Oh gawd at 00:55 I looked away from the screen to take a bite of ice cream and heard that noise, it was so scary!!!!

  30. SO, I can see you guys in my hometown. Welcome…

  31. OMG Martina, I was crying along right with you. This just hits everything in the feels! So glad you guys aren’t leaving Korea at least – I imagine I’d be bawling then. You guys are awesome and I hope that Seoul treats you well!

  32. Marta_Loves_Spudgy

    i cried with you martina <3

  33. congratulations simon and martina!can’t wait to see all of ur wonderful adventures in seoul:)

  34. the first video I saw of you was the tteokbokki one! good memories. :’)

  35. Awwwww :( I’m gonna miss Bucheon too (even though I’ve never ever been there and it’s doubtful that I ever will)!!! Martina, I just wanted to give you a big hug in the beginning! I know what it’s like to move and leave literally everything behind (I moved from Greece to the U.S. and then once again after) and it srsly sucks (but you also already knew that from moving from Canada to Korea sooo…. um, awkward) :( But hang in there, at least we (the Nasties) will stay with you! <3 Simon and Martina FIGHTING! ^^

  36. It’s so sad to see that you guys are leaving Bucheon but I know you guys will do well in Seoul too. Hopefully you will be there when I come and visit my Unni after I graduate. I am also going to apply to teach over there so keep us updated!!!!

  37. crazymadsad

    when i see people crying, i cry. i guess it was the first time (and last time) i cried (a little) watching one of your vid. (oh wait no, i did cry once but it was a little different). anyways, hope you’ll have 2 times more wonderful adventure in Seoul :)

  38. Awww! I had tears in my eyes within the first minute and a half!! I hope your new apartment is as awesome as your current one! I also look forward to the videos exploring Seoul. Just think of all the new places for WANKs and FAPFAPs!!!!
