Hiya!

Last week when we wrapped up our WTF video segment, we announced that we’d be starting a new segment this week. Today we’re announcing what we’re doing! Woot! As a not-so-footy foot note, we’d like to apologize that this isn’t our actual first video for it. Martina got really sick last week, so we couldn’t go out and be adventuresome. If you listen carefully to Martina in our recent Music Monday, you can hear her snotty stuffed up nose and sore throat. Poor girl! BUT DON’T WORRY! We had brought an emergency supply of medicine Lipton Chicken Noodle soup from Canada. You know: the envelopes filled with yellow noodles and neon yellow soup mix? And she ate that for 5 whole days. Now she’s almost all better due to tummy warming! Oh yeah, those of you coming to Korea to live, bring a comfort food for when you’re sick. (We also packed Jello for those barfy flu days.)

AHEM! The point here is not that Martina was barfy sick, but that we couldn’t go outside to film without Martina giving sad stink sick face to the camera, so today we’re announcing our (no longer) secret plans for our segment! DRUMROLLLLL PLEAASSSEEEEEELE: It’s Wonderful Adventure Now Korea aka W.A.N.K! We’ll be WANKing every Wednesday and we’re hoping to hit some places or do activities in Korea that YOU guise want!

After all, we live in Korea and there are so many things we can experience that other people can’t. We’re hoping to get a list of things to do, and it can be random, like visit a Korean stationary shop to something specific, like hang out at a Korean tea room. If you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments, on Facebook, or on Twitter!

Oh, and on top of our normal adventure, we decided to make it more exciting by having a check list we must complete.

1. We must both find a kpop idol (it will probably be a picture) to pose into front of during our adventures.

2. We will complete to see who can find the most creative Engrish. Once we choose it, we can’t take it back. You guise will vote on who picked the most creative use of Engrish!

Wet Spudgy & Punishment Die

Wet Spudgy & Punishment Die

3. And last, a random challenge will appear like a Pokemon trainer in the woods calling us to battle…but without the pokemon…and poke trainer…and probably no woods. Makes it sound sadder. I WANT A SNORLAX!!! *ahem* The loser of this challenge will have to roll our giant punishment die to receive their shaming. It’s a 1/5 chance to be shamed, and there is just one “you lucky duck” number that will let us just walk away. To the right here, you’ll see a picture of the giant punishment die, as well as our freshly washed Spudgy (fyi, he doesn’t like being showered)

So, that’s it for now…let the suggestions begin!!!! Oh, and the winners for our last WTF are announced in the bloopers! Please send us an email and we’ll send out your packages ASAP, just in time for after-Christmas!

  1. Min Jae Kim

    During winer, especially christmas, Cheong Gye Cheon in Jong ro is amazing. You guys should visit. 

  2. LOL this seems to be looking pretty good! i’m starting to like WANK, actually i love all of your series (although i’ll miss WTF). I vote for both of Simon’s choices, the engrish and yoochun!

  3. Marie Lim

    Hmmm first thought – Ulleungdo! :)  1 night 2 days went there when the weather was finally good enough – the scenery there looks absolutely amazing!

  4. where to vote? just in the comments like usual?

  5. pretty please visit Seoul National University and tell us how is it there for foreigners :))) 

  6. Can you show us some Universities and like what they mainly teach there (i think theres a word for what i meant to say there)  and stuff they require i really want to go study in Korea i find there culture amazing. also i would like to see yesung’s parent’s coffee shop handel &gretel plzzzz :D

  7. Act rich. Shopping trip to either Hyundai, Lotte or Shinsaegae department stores. For Shinsaegae I heard their department store in Pusan is the largest possibly the largest in the world. 

    Sneak into North Korea to pay last respects to Kim Jong Il :-)

    Roadtrip to Pusan on the highway. 

    Check out the Formula one track next year.

    Act out your favorite drama scene. Don’t have one or have a hard time picking one? How about the kiss scene of Hyun bin and Ha Ji won in the secret garden when ha ji won attempts to wipe off the moustache after having a cappucino at a local coffee shop.
    Or the scene doing sit ups at a local gym. *GRIN*

  8. Go to home plus shop for ingredients for bibimbap (or a popular korean food/snack), prepare it and ask people around korea to try it and ask them to rate you. Considered self cam by the way?

  9. Maybe you should just be sasaeng fans and stalk celebrities for a day. o.o

  10. A stationary shop would be cool too. I like Korean stationary~ :D

    And you should find some star paper!

    that sort of stuff… Rigth!? Well, and my chosen place for you is
    Ewha Womans University! I just watched a report about the university and
    its special architecture, but it was all about the building (how
    boring) and the whole time I was wondering what is students life like
    there? Where’s the socialising, partying, wanking… taking place? ;) If you ever could go exploring that in my place I’d be the first one to watch your ivd for sure! Hugs ‘n sloppy kisses from Germany! ^.^

    I already know from the sound of that title that there’s something wrong, and it’s not the hike u p the mountain. Too scared to look it up, need to retain some innocence. Anyways I like this idea.

    entertainment company buildings (sm, jyp etc)

  22. XD the blooper reel is longer than the actual video

  23. LOL!! Can’t wait to see you guys wanking all over the place in Korea. I bet it will be a sight to see. Oh and Martina, I love Sean Paul too and you just happen to sing my favorite song of his – Sexy Punkie!! I cracked up laughing when I heard you sing it. I love the Spanish version instead of the English version, but yeah it doesn’t matter because either way I still can’t understand what he says be it English or Spanish. Hahaha!

  24. Really random, but SPUDGYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY IS SOOOOOOO FLUFFYYYYYYYY 8D

  25. Anonymous

    Oh my gosh, I would die happy if you guys showed us SM Entertainment’s building where all the trainees train!!! (:

  26. Oh BTW your own Kpop video a la stephen colbert. 
    Maybe fan meet videos.

  27. thatssumgoodcurry

    I like how your guys’ blooper reel is longer than the actual video this week. I kinda like it. :)

  28. I LOVE THIS NEW VIDEO SERIES!!!! I support you guys wanking all over Korea. Show those Koreans how its done, North America style.

    It would be awesome if you guys did a segment where you have to try different kinds of street foods.  That stuff always looks so sketchy but then is usually crazy good. (Hopefully you won’t have another experience like with that ddokboki ajumma and her flaming ddokboki from hell)

  29. omg! Lipton Chicken noodle soup!!! you’re making me want it so bad right now!! (also an expat, but in Japan…) and FYI… another thing to stuck up on is NyQuil!!! i dunno if medicine is as shit in korea as it is in Japan, but yeah…

    but yeah, sounds cool!! i bet you were pissing yourself with giggles when you wrote “we’ll be wanking every wednesday”… eheh. you sillies :p i’m looking forward to your adventures!! i for one would like to see stuff about the este in korea… we here a lot about the “good, cheap este from korea” in Japan, so suggestions of places to go would be cool! 

    oh and speaking of which, since i’ve only found your blog about a month ago, i’ve been going through the archives, and was impressed when i found the post where Martina was discussing her BBcream… WELL, the other day, while shopping in Tokyo, i found an Etude House shop, and omg, everything in there was SO cheap!! i bought a BBcream (and shitloads more stuff) since i remembered the name from Martina’s post, and omg, i love it! and i cannot get over how cheap it was!! seriously! i’m paying around 40$ for MAC foundation here… and this is like 10$!! thank you thank you Martina for that lovely recommendation! <3

  30. Cecilia G

    martina! please do a makeup tutorial! your makeup looks so especially pretty today!! :)

    you guys should go to a noraebang! (is that right? the karaoke thingy?)

  31. I am really curious about the nightlife in Seoul… for instance nightclubs/bars :) What kind of music do they play and does it look similar to our nightclubs/bars in Canada?

  32. Concert with backstage passes.
    Or even access to Kim Yuna’s ice shows. Those will be cool. 

  33. i would like to see a random pokemon challenge outside YG building also it will be nice to see the inside of S7ven´s restaurant cause i have just seen pictures that celebrities takes with that  big chicken that it’s inside the store ….:)

  34. Simon’s haircut reminds me of Jay Parks. Can’t wait to see you guys wank.

  35. Anonymous

    HAAZAAAAA!!!! Virtual tour of Korea ((:
    do they have maid cafes in Korea?? if so, you should go! ^-^ 

  36. Larisa Hohenboken

    I don’t know if it’s possible with your camera equipment, but could you guys show us some of the hiking spots in Korea? I’ve heard there are hikes all over the place, and an active hiking/fitness culture that spans generations. It would be cool to see that side of Korea and not just the pop culture hallyu stuff.

  37. You guys definitely have to check out the Boryeong Mud Festival @ Daecheon Beach in July. ITS SO AWESOME! And don’t bring your nice clothes.

  38. 이신비밀

    i want to see cute places in seoul :D for example in playful kiss, when Baek Seung Jo and Oh Ha Ni went a date there was a park with giant bench ;) And i seriously want to know about universities because i am thinking of studying in korea with exchange program ^___^ i totally adore creative buildings since i study architecture so are there any university buildings in seoul like; ABC Faculty in Utrecht, Holland or California Academy of sciences? i bet there is a lot of pretty places in seoul pleaseeeeeee show us since we are not living in korea like you guys :S
