WHERE IS NAMSAN TOWER? THERE IS NAMSAN TOWER! This post and video can’t be fully appreciated unless you have seen Itaewon Freedom:

 

So we went to Namsan Tower, which we’ve already been to and made a video for. But, gosh! That was so long ago, and that was way before Itaewon Freedom came out and gave the tower much more importance than before.

Homin on We Got Married

Is this Homin on We Got Married?

Anyhow a couple of stories from this week’s WANK. If you Follow us on Twitter, you’ll see that we posted this picture here and asked if you could tell us who it is. People suggested that it’s Homin on We Got Married. Anyhow, we couldn’t tell. All we saw was a huge camera crew around these two people. But here’s what kind of sucked about the situation: we were filming our segment while they were filming theirs. We weren’t even filming them. We were just doing our own thing. Tons of people were around them taking pictures and movies on their cameras, all getting in the way and stuff, while we were on the side. We, however, were stopped by Namsan Tower staff. Why? They told us we can’t film, because we’re not press. So we asked why everyone else can film, and why they stopped us rather than everyone else. They then got confused. We told them we’re not press: we’re just filming our own video (more specifically, we should have told them that we’re making a video of us WANKing, but that might have confused them more). Then they pointed to our equipment and said “why do you have a mic?” Why does it matter? They asked why we had a light. Ah! Just because we have good filming equipment we got stopped! We need to get small handycams, rather than lugging around all our gear, because we’ll get stopped. Silly!

Sadly, at the end of the night, we somehow knocked over our tripod and snapped off our light. NOOOOES! It cracked, but we’re planning on supergluing it and duct-taping it and all. Also, please don’t laugh at the dumb credits at the end, where it should say the name of our site, but instead says “Your Text Here” Great. Final Cut Pro sucks so much ahhh!

But, regardless of these frustrations, we still had loads of fun. We’re starting to think of us WANKing together as just date nights. Yay! Look at us being all mushy with our love messages on locks and stuff. And, if you, check out the bloopers, you’ll see us recreate perfect K Drama kisses! So Romantic!

  6. Anonymous

    Simon’s Engrish and Simon’s idol, YongHwa.

  7. To the subtitle I would add: This post and video can’t
    be fully appreciated unless you have seen Itaewon Freedom [and Boys over Flowers].  I laughed so hard at your re-creation of the Namsan Tower scene with Goo Jun Pyo and Geum Jan Di that I was doubled over almost falling on the floor.  The bloopers including the “K-drama kiss” were brilliant.  Thanks for this W.A.N.K.!

    I’d vote for Simon’s KPop idol and Martina’s Engrish.

  8. I see those circle lenses that you stuck in your eyes Martina! poot poot cute. I vote Martina for both idol and engrish! Sorry Simon, but you didn’t even know your idol, and you stole the engrish :( Voting on morals. 

  9. I see those circle lenses that you stuck in your eyes Martina! poot poot cute. I vote Martina for both idol and engrish! Sorry Simon, but you didn’t even know your idol, and you stole the engrish :( Voting on morals. 

  10. Maartini’s engrish! And Hyun Bin! :D I love him! <3

  11. Emily Luneng

    I vote for Martina’s engrish and Simon’s idol. Just wondering, Martina, are you wearing contact or something, or is that just me…?  ^-^

  12. I vote for simon for engrish and idol.

  13. Kayley Suk

    Vote for Simon. For both!

  14. One vote for Simon’s idol and Martina’s Engrish :)

  15. For Idol challenge I vote for Martina and for Engrish challenge I vote for Simon!

  16. Is Martina wearing her circle lenses in this video? Her eyes look so biiiiiiiiiiiiiggg

  17. Martina all the way. Martina’s engrish was no way understandable.I was like “what?”. I actually paused it and read it. And rewind to no avail of understanding.

    During the end, I was panicking cause Martina has no idol or artist. but whew! What a relief. I picked, PARK SHIN YE! Kidding. I picked Martina’s choice cause Simon don’t know Yong Hwa. Sorry Simon.

  18. Gaby Lim

    Martina and Simon… please go WANK-ing for some SPICY FOOD!!!

    Martina, ur korean idol (hyun bin) totally wins! =P and so does ur engrish!

  19. Simon and Martina, go WANK for some wedding photos in Seoul. I saw in many korean dramas and variety shows and they looked totally awesome…….pretty pleaaassssseeeee ??!!! @_@+ 

  20. anale aiom

    Okay so Younghwa wins, but Martinas engrish wins because she said that all in one breath so that should merit extra points><
    and i laughed when Martina didn't get a punishment (its okay Simon, if you win next time, then she will most likey get a punishment…her turn will comeXD)

  36. Sarah Hemetsberger

    Hey Martina! Actually gut is a word ^^ It means: good in german ;)

  37. Anonymous

    I just started watching these people what do they mean by wanking…? Because here in the UK it means to masturbate.

    Good video overall! But I’m sure you can understand my surprise when the guy said “Take a picture wanking in front of Korean idols” and “random wank off competition”.

    Oh the laughs!

  38. I know people with Simon’s hoody. O_O It is epic.

  39. Idol is Martina. I think I’ll go for Simon on the engrish though

  40. i vote for simon’s aengrish and idol… sorry martina, i havent watched secret garden yet XD
    this is by far one of the best wanking editions! that view was soooooo pretty *-* and i love that scene from BBF

  41. Suggestion! You guys should start rolling 2 die, and from 7-12, there should be moaaarr punishments! :D For number 12, it should be something like, “no punishment for 2 episodes.” I mean, just saying :)

  42. sharon chu

    AIGOO, THE ENDING OF THE BLOOPERS WAS SO CUTE. x3 
    I want a hubby like Simon. ; A ;

  43. This video was one of your vest so far. Keep it up guys!

  44. Hehehe. Lovely re-enactment of Gu Jun-Pyo and Geum Jan-Di. XD
    And can I say Martina is really lucky?Sorry for you, Simon! :B

  45. Katelyn Young

    I think Simon wins both challenges this week. SIMON YOU DID IT!!! You won the WANK off!!! I knew you would… its just too funny that Martina didn’t get punished.

  46. Martina looks really cute in this video.

  47. vaxanne

    Thanks for wanking Itaewon. Simon’s engrish was the vest! Martina’s thirst quenching Hyun Binnie saved the day. 

    Next wanking proposal: Winter events/parks or hot springs/ baths 

  48. your life can never be the same after Itaewon Freedom…..(and JYP saying his usual JYP in the beginning makes it even more hilarious)….but yeah….i do not know how i lived before…..this song….hah it makes my day anytime…

  49. simon’s idol [his name is jung yong hwa btw] he’s amazing and heartstrings is super amazing so i vote for him. martina’s english because it’s super loooooong and awkward it just has to win ^^

  50. Gaelan McCallum

    As soon as I saw the begining of the video I went “isn’t that from BOF?” and it was! I think Martina and I had the same reaction (drama freaks unite!). I vote for Martina’s engrish and Simon’s idol – even though he didn’t know it was yong hwa

  51. Gaelan McCallum

    As soon as I saw the begining of the video I went “isn’t that from BOF?” and it was! I think Martina and I had the same reaction (drama freaks unite!). I vote for Martina’s engrish and Simon’s idol – even though he didn’t know it was yong hwa

  52. Julianna Deibel

    Simons pic and engrish. Sorry Martina…

  53. Thanks for doing Namsam Tower! I live in the US so it’s troubling to see my parents longing to go back to Korea knowing that we can’t visit. My mom used to live next to Namsam Tower so I plan on showing this video to her! Thanks! 

  54. Simon for Engrish and Martina for Idol.

  55. I loved this Episode! Sorry Martina but I have to vote for Simon’s English and Picture.

  56. Sarah W.

    This was so hilarious! I love how Simonn has been losing the challenges and when Martina finally lost one she has no punishment! I really love the BOF stuff! I would so go there to reenact the stuff! I vote for Simon’s English and Martina’s tiny bottle picture!

  57. i vote Simon for Engrish and Idol

  58. OMG Martina’s excitement derp is the BEST!

  59. I vote Martina for English and Simon for Idol

  60. Martina with SECRET GARDEN guy w<

  61. they probably got mad at you for filming because they thought you were going to secretly film whatever show they were shooting and leak it online or something.

  62. luvd the boys over flower part was jilarioues and although i luvd secret garden i have to say i thk yong hwa is cuter so simon wins :)

  63. Martina for the English and Simon for the Celebrity because I don’t know his name either but he IS the guy from C.N. Blue! ha! AWESOME video guys! I almost laughed until I cried with the drama re-enactments and the bloopers! “I’ll kill you in your sleep.” haha!! So, so good!! I needed this video today. :-)

    *Does Martina have on those weird circle contact lenses? Why do her eyes look so dang big in this video…… freakin’ me out man.

  64. i love simon’s idol…i love jung yong hwa…and i also liked simon’s engrish..

  65. awww Simon your sooo affectionate! my boyfriend does the same thing, he’ll just start kissing me and then i have to smack him to get him off of me. *dislikes PDA…* 

  66. Anna Ludlow

    i love simon’s idol and martina’s engrish.

  67. Amanda Maffett

    I loved Martina’s reaction when she saw “No Punishment”…ssso funny1

  68. Anonymous

    haha i knew that when Martina lost a challenge she’s get no punishment lol

  69. I like Simon’s engrish and Martina’s idol… love Hyun Bin :D 

  70. ….I was blatantly distracted by Martina’s eyes as I was trying to decide if she was sporting circle lens for way too long. I do think Simon for the idol (mainly for going, “It’s that guy from that group I think”) and Martina for the super-long run on sentence.

  71. Literati Tempo

    Yes come to the world of the circle lenses they are adorable to the max. Sorry Simon you got docked points for not knowing YongHwa’s name… plus HyunBin is a sexy sexy man. So final count

    Engrish:Simon
    Idol: Martina♥

    Where is NamSan Tower? Really like how would you get their from the airport.

  72. I don’t really get what you do with the key of your lock afterwards.
    In Europe the locks are a big thing on famous bridges, where you can throw the key in the river afterwards (like the Tiber in Rome or the Rhine in Cologne). That way the lock can never be opened again. 
    Maybe Koreans take off their lock after breaking up :D

  73. Thanks for the visit =D Martina you’re so cute, you look like a doll with lens =3

  74. can ya’ll give us a tour in the YG Building?? 8D
    One can dream XDD

  75. punkyprincess92
    punkyprincess92

    you should have totally looked for the love locks by SHINee!!!!!!!
    and RUNNING MAN was filmed there!!!!!!!!!!!!!! which reminds me!! your buzzer sound in the background for ‘challenge time’ sounds like the one from running man!!

    that was Jung Yonghwa from CN Blue!!!!!

    i choose Simons engrish and idol!!

  76. Anonymous

    I vote for Martina’s Engrish and Idol! :D

  77. breakfast porn music got me pretty hot!

  78. Simon won every thing. But since Simon could not name his idol Simon should have to do a music Monday on CNBlue or at least find out who the idol is with out Martina’s Help. I think there should be a rule where if you have to buy it should not count. Go Martina on the Boys Before Flowers reference.

  79. I see that Martina was wearing those special contacts again.  Do they have a lot of food stands over there?  You should go exploring to see all the different types of food they offer.

  80. Idol – Martina
    Engrish – Simon XD
    OMGGGG the end of the bloopers was so cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute

    P.S. I vote for Simon’s singing 8-) Like a man !

    Martina’s Idol and Simon’s Engrish. 
    I LOVE YOU TWO SO MUCH!!!! 
    (the Spudgy voice makes me happy!!!) 

  82. Simon win the Engrish and the idol!
    Martina didn’t have a punishement because you didn’t know Yonghwa’s name!!

  83. I was in Korea for New year’s eve and I went to this tower! It was amazing and you are lazy because I took the step to go up xD
    Thank you for this video becauce it reminds me my holidays ;)

  84. Favourite Konglish: Martina. Favourite idol: Simon. ACTUALLY NO I TAKE THAT BACK. Konglish: Simon. Idol: Simon. Sorry.

    Martina should have got a punishment. Poor Simon. I also loved Simon’s dramatisation. I really hated that drama. No offense, Martina.

  85. think this is Simons week to win, his engrish was brill. Though Simon not recognising Yonghwa could be grounds for exclusion from the comp! 

    Gotta say your drama kiss moment was almost more epic than real drama kisses, Martina have you been practicing ‘blank expression face lifting’???

  86. Anonymous

    Well, the last few weeks, Martina has been pwning Simon, but this week…

    Martina, you got pwned.

    I vote for Simon in both the idol challenge and the Engrish.  That was pretty epic Engrish.  Martina’ sentence, though long, was still fine, really. 

  87. IDOL: SIMON!! Yonghwa ftw!!!

    ENGRISH: MARTINA

  88. oh gosh no wonder Martina looks so creepy,
     the eyes of horror!!! o.o

  89. those locks…shinee’s should be there, yes? :o

    simon’s engrish and martina’s idol!! hyun bin ftw!!!

    XD I love ya’lls re-enactment! “… this as your sky lounge, you pretentious @$$hole!” Especially in the bloopers when you do the drama kiss! Along with that you guys are such a cute couple! :3

  91. Sorry Martina…but Simon totally won both of those <3

  92. You guys are so sweeeeeeeet together~~ ♥
    I vote for Simon’s engrish and idol~ XD

  93. JinDo Mann

    I loved that you showed the food and explain a bit to it. Can you please do more of that =)
    Also, the ice cream is highly recommended at Namsan Tower, they make it with real things (f.e. real banana pieces) … sooooooooo nice~
    As for the fence, they started to bent under the weight of the lockers. So you are just allowed to put them on the trees. You did right Simon ;)
    So funny, it does not matter who loses the one always said “it was not fair!” kekekeke
     
    Martin has to win the idol-battle, because it’s the BEST tea in a bottle EVER!!!!

  94. Anonymous

    I hope you guys go to hongdae . cafe Le:a is awsome. It is hongdea student’s hidden hot spot.
    there is mascot dogs. you may surprised by big labrador retriever. you guys can enjoy a cup of tea. black tea will served with cute china and hot milk. 
    after that you can go to bongchu찜닭. the chicken is awesomely tender and covered with a slightly sweet syrup. soy sauce marinated scallion, potato and chewy noodle is really delicious. Eat like a yangban. eat a meal think about positive and negative effect[YING and YANG]. when you eat the 찜닭 you should remove the carrots. when it cooked it releases water-solubility vitamin, before that absorbs other ingredient’s  Negative nutrition.

  95. Martina’s like she was wearing circle lenses :)

  96. Simon gets the win for engrish but Martina gets the win for her skills in sneakery.

  97. Anonymous

    homin? which couple is that?!

  98. hum my votes for the idol and the English are both for Simon =)

  99. Anonymous

    Sneaky, sneaky Martina! For that, you win the idol challenge. My other vote is for Simon’s stolen engrish.

  100. whoa~~~really love your WANK videos!!!!  I miss korea so much!!  You guys should go to hong dae and check out all the graffiti street and hello kitty cafe n hoho myeul cafe!!!  

  101. wow, i’m looking forward to watching this clip, namsan’s one of my fav places amongst those that you guys have reviewed so far! 

  102. omg!! at first i saw the pic…i dont even recognise it’s hyomin…i’m t-ara’s hardcore fan btw :(

  103. Midas Crown

    Dear Simon & Martina ~ Is it legal to teach in Korea with an “Associate’s Degree” or 2 year diploma from a Canadian college?

  104. Pearl Silver

    Yong Hwa~! He’s Yong Hwa! .>

  105. Hannah Kang

    Martina, are you wearing circle lenses?

  106. Martina’s getting prettier and prettier by the day! (Not saying you weren’t before!) It must be because of all the fan-love she’s getting!

  107. Oh hey, there are escalators/elevators. We walked our booties up that hill to N Tower, dragging each other along, jealous of the older folk who were jogging up and down them forward AND backwards with no problem. xDDD

    So Simon totally wins Engrish, and because of execution, Martina wins Idol.

  108. Anonymous

    Martina’s Engrish, Simon’s idol (I just finished watching Heartstrings). Martina – I super lol’d when you pulled out the no punishment.

  109. aw. i hope you guys will be together forever.Martina.. your my hero for reenacting dramas!I pick simon for both the engrish and the k-idol challenge
    Jung Yong Hwa!

  110. Angel V. Garcia

    You guys make me laugh. I like Simon’s Engrish.

  111. On a side note, how are you guys able to film in restaurants?  Every time I pulled out my DSLR to take video, I always get yelled at.

    Do you guys ask for permission or have them sign a waiver?

  112. thatssumgoodcurry

    I knew it was gonna be a six. As soon as Martina lost I was like, “Oh my God, its gonna be a six, I just know it.” And IWASRIGHT!!!1 Ah, it made me lulz like crazy. XD
    I have to go with Simon’s Engrish, though, so its even, right? Sorta?

  113. Is Martina wearing the circle lenses you guys reviewed a while back?

  114. Nice vid guys.

    For everyone else, they’re right.  You’re not missing much.  Higher view point, yes, but the inside is fully lit.  So imagine looking through panes of glass and seeing the reflection of people’s fingerprints all over.  It’s that fantastical.

    However, the men’s washroom looks…interesting.

  115. Samantha Hascall

    Yay Simon, finally winning! XD Too bad Martina didn’t get a punishment though…
    I’d say Martina won for Engrish, but seeing as how I love CNBlue, I’m voting for Simon finding Yong Hwa ^_^

  116. Gotta vote Hyun Bin (I love Yonghwa, but really, no chance against Hyun Bin, poor guy…) haha and I think I’ll go when Martina’s Engrish too. It was run-on and babbling, whereas Simon’s was more of a typo-esque mistake~

  117. this was the vest!!hahaha. The WG Swan walk should be in all of your videos. It’s also the vest!

  118. When my girlfriend and I first arrived in Korea, we visited Namsan and did the whole love locket thing. A few months before heading back to the states, we returned to Namsan to find our locket. As she was searching for our original locket, I sneakily attached a new one that read, “Will you marry me?” Korea will always have a special place in our hearts. :)  

  119. ive always wanted to go to namsan tower…anways…simons engrish and idol sowwy martina

  120. I vote for Yonghwa and Simon’s engrish. 

  121. Nikki Kyllonen

    Martina’s engrish and Martina’s idol xP sorry Simon, Secret Garden rocks ^^

  122. Awww you guys are seriously so sweet. That’s really nice that you think of making these WANK videos as date nights <3 (I almost ruined that heart by putting a 4…like I always somehow do) Anyways, super rawesome video, and I'm SOO glad you guys decided to make wank :D eyk 4LYFE!

  123. Anonymous

    Hmm.. There’s something weird.. I’m pretty sure Martina’s eyes last time I checked were blue. But I was never the observant kid anyway. If so nice circle lenses then.

    and Finally I’m so tired of seeing Simon lose (and try to cheat his way out) But apparently its not meant to be. No punishment for Martina.. haha… :))

    Anyway, I love Simon’s Engrish. Martina’s was a little too common. I mean run on sentences are very much used anywhere not that its right to use them. But you probably know what I mean. And I really can’t choose between Yong Hwa and Hyun Bin. They have totally different charms, in dramas and real life. So a draw for the K-pop Idol, sorry guys.

  124. is it just me? or has martina’s eyes look a little… different?

  125. Martina’s Idol and Simon’s Engrish ^^

    ALMOST PEH-RUH-DISEE~ na na na na na na naah na na~

    Hyunbin? Damn Simon, no chance on this one! You can’t beat Hyunbin!
    I’ll have to vote Martina’s engrish too! 

  127. Martina’s Idol and Simon english :)
    so cute ~ 

  128. Sannah Khan

    This was really fun! You guys are so cute.
    She definitely is wearing circle lenses, and possibly coloured?

  129. congrats to Simon for winning the challenge~
    now lets see..Martinas engrisch won because I didn’t even understand it the first time i read it xDYonghwa or HyunBin?You meanies, that’s sooo hard to choose! While I do like YongHwa I didn’t enjoy haertstrings that much (and still haven’t finished watching it -.-) so HYUNBIN gets my vote!!

  130. I’ve heard of leaving locks at Namsan tower before but I never knew the reason why. It’s from a drama? which one?

  131. “I’m pretty sure he’s from CN Blue but I don’t know his name” That should not count! You should at least know who your idol is, Simon. I vote Martina :P

    BTW Your Boys Over Flowers re-inaction had me in stitches. 

  132. irritablevowel

    Geum Jan Di sounds just like Spudgy!  

  133. haditabelarus

    the ending of the bloopers is the best!
