WANK – Goodbye, Bucheon!

September 9, 2012

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!

  8. I am so going to miss the familiar places you went to and your apartment. Goodbye Bucheon! Hello seoul!

    Martina you made us tear up aswell, getting all emotional first thing in the morning. A farewell tour was really cool and I really enjoyed it.

  10. guys, I fell like I am moving with you^^ I’ve been following you for almost a year now :D I am sooo happy for you and I can’t wait to see your new videos and your place!

  11. Awww, Martina! I think I would definitely feel the same way about leaving a place where I had so many memories like that. I know that when I left Korea the first time, I cried so hard because I didn’t want to say goodbye to my students. But now I’m in Korea again (Suwon this time) and I can make more memories with a new group!
    Good luck to you guys in Seoul! Which area are you going to be in? Myeongdong, Hongdae, etc? Regardless, I hope everything goes smoothly with the move and your transition to a new life in Seoul! ^_^

  16. Okay, back in ’09, I remember stumbling across your blog. I had been wanting to teach overseas and South Korea was one of the places I was interested in. My search led me to your blog. I went through your entire blog and watched all your videos in one sitting. I remember asking about jjimjilbangs and was amazed when Simon actually responded. I still have that E-mail.

    You two made Bucheon look like so much fun that whenever I thought about teaching overseas, Bucheon was at the top of my list. Your blog was, and still is, informative and fun. Your candor and humor have been much appreciated. I knew your blog would expand someday and I felt privileged to be one of your earlier followers. Anyone who has ever talked to me about wanting to teach overseas or to learn more about South Korea, I referred them to your blog. Over the years, I’ve seen its transformation from the new layouts to the better quality videos to your move to adding new segments. I feel like I went through it all with you two. So, as I sit here watching Martina cry like a baby, I’m crying right along with her.

    I’m so happy for you two for all the success you’ve had over the years. You so deserve it! And, I’m proud of you for remaining true to who you are and remembering your fans.

  20. Oh Martina you got me crying at the beginning of the video with you. Even though the move is exciting and wondrous in the new adventures you two will be taking it is always hard to leave a city you’ve lived in and loved for so long. Especially considering it is your first home in Korea. I understand your feels completely. I’m excited that you guys will be taken us along with you as you begin your new adventure of discovering Seoul.

  22. I have been watching your videos for a few years now, and even though I didn’t come in at the very beginning, I have seen all of your videos to date. Watching you two grow and explore had been wonderful, and makes me want to do an ESL program and go back to Korea even more (had exchange students, went by myself when I was 15 to stay with her and family for 3 weeks). I am sad to say goodbye to Bucheon (even if I was only physically there once), but at the same time I know this will open up new opurtunities for you guys and I know you’ll love Seoul. Nastie for life! <3

  25. I’m so proud of you guys! The scooter trip down memory lane made me a little sad but also really happy, seeing how truly far you’ve come in your journey but also how you’ve grown as a couple. You’re such loving and wonderfully awkward people and you deserve even more feels and wonderful experiences, having always brightened my day and so so so many others. You’ve already lived such a full life and there’s so much more awaiting you. When one door closes, another opens (whenever I get a case of the feels, I love pulling out some cliches ;D) and there are so many opening for you guise. I’m truly excited for all the new adventures you’ll be having together with Spudy and Dr. Meemersworth. Seeing your happiness and joy is so inspirational and I hope that one day I too can live a fullfilling life and find my soul mate, just like you two have. <3 NASTY FOR LIFE. ;)

  40. DANG!!! I got so, super excited when you wrote about getting a studio next to YG Building, I was already imagining all the times you’d run into Tablo and TOP and Mithra etc when you went to the convenience store…and yes, the binoculars…. Just making sure you don’t get arrested for that :p
