Welcome to the first episode of our new segment – Wonderful Adventure Now Korea, aka WANK – where we travel around Korea, show off some cool destinations, and just play around with each other in Korea. Think of it kind of as the Simon and Martina variety show. I don’t think we’ll be doing the 3x Replay of funny events from lots of different angles, though. I also don’t think we’ll be getting celebrities on our show…YET! Just wait! Give it a year, and I bet you we can get at least one member of Batoost on WANKing with us…yeah right. Any thoughts of who would be the best Kpop WANKer?

So this is our first adventure, and we’re going to Myeongdong! It only seems reasonable, seeing how it’s almost Christmas, and we needed to do some Christmas shopping. Why not take you to one of the most popular shopping districts in Seoul? Myeongdong’s right in the heart of Seoul, and it’s a popular tourist destination, with lots of both local and big name franchise shopping. It’s also got some awesome street food, which we did a video about A LOOONG TIME AGO. As well, it has one of our favourite Kalguksu restaurants, Myeongdong Kalguksu, which is intensely awesome. We didn’t include it in our main WANKing video, but we talk about it a bit in our bloopers. Yay!

We had a great time otherwise. We met a bunch of nice people that took pictures with us (yay!) and were able to buy a bunch of Kpop socks, which – we’re not sure – might be illegal to sell. We remember when we first came to Korea Kpop socks were EVERYWHERE. Now, they’re quite hard to come by. Was there a big Kpop Sock crackdown by the police or something? We don’t know. We were just happy to find them and to buy a bunch. Woot!

Anyhow, our first adventure got off to a rough start, because I (Simon here) got nasty sick. Ahh! Martina was sick last week so we couldn’t start WANKing then, and so we only announced our segment. We couldn’t postpone it this week, though, so we went out, took a bunch of medicine, drank a lot of coffee, and went WANKing. Huzzah!

Also, let us know who won our individual challenges today: Martina’s Engrish or mine? Who had the better picture to pose with (I think it’s clear I won that one). And lastly, check out the bloopers in the video below, and tell us where you’d like us to go WANKing next!

  3. You guys are absolutely great!!! LOVE the new blog : )

  5. minzychan

    i love u guys and ur videos

  6. Alison Yu

    Ahhh I had kalguksoo when I was sick in Korea too. So good!

  7. So I haven’t watched your videos in a while, and I just started picking up again! I looooooove this video, I really need to shop in Myeongdong when I visit in the next couple years! ^.^ Bbopki sounds really good! :D

  8. I have to say that Martina won the Kpop Idol challenge. I love Jang Geun Suk! However I believe that Simon won the Engrish challenge. It didn’t make any sense, while Martina’s sort of made sense in that you go up for pictures and Merry Christmas. I also want to say that I love your guys’ WANK videos!! :D

  9. Myeongdong seems like a lot of fun! This time I pick simon for the engrish challenge and the kpop idol challenge. I’m also a lil jealous that Martina found some rawesome tae yang socks…but that did not bias my decision making for the challenges lol

  11. Fatin Amira

    Going to Insadong would be cool! Especially since that area has a lot of historic sights =]

  13.  i don’t know where it is exactly…but you guys should totally go to the Coffee Prince Cafe! That would be so cool. (:

  14. Ummm I don’t know how to tell you this, but wanking means something very different in British English… I nearly choked upon my tea and crumpets!! Hohoho! xx

  15. How about going to Insadong? Or Dongdaemoon :) And I vote for Martina xD Sorry Simon!!

  16. I LOVE that your fans came up to you guys! That was awesome!

    u guys r sooo creative!

    srry martina simon won both the engrish and the idol YOOCHUN FOR LIFE, and i do want soup

  19. OMG SUN!! Yoochun´s epic picture of Ottogi *w* Simon owned that challenge, for sure xDDD

  20. i really want to go to myeongdong…i really want to go to everysing, i want to buy kpop stuff…

  21. Martina’s engrish was better (or worst?) but Simon’s idol pic OWNED hers. I love Yoochun! <3333

  22. I want to see you guys in Hongdae!!! Heard there are a lot of Coffee Shops there~ so yeah, HONGDAE please~~^^

    And oh! I’m on Martina’s Engrish Sign!

  23. Simon’s Engrish sign for sure won xD um.. can you guys go to more of a Traditional Korean area? I’m curious about that…

  24. Simon and Martina,
    while you are wanking why don’t you put together a video of seoul?
    Check this video out.

  25. Take a WANKing trip to Busan!

    • I second this motion. Trips are taken there in almost every single kdrama. Whether is makes sense for the plot or not. Why shouldn’t the both of you? Plus, you can go to famous places and Martina can act out scenes from various plots while Simon rolls his eyes. I can think of at least five scenes to do in front of that damn white light house. haha!

  26. You guys should go to Yeolbong! There’s be lots of kpop celebs to take photos with, and the challenge punishment could involve that big chicken suit outside… Also, I vote for Simon’s Engrish!  

  27. Hm…why don’t you go to a mall? Maybe show us a cinema? I really want to see that. Aaaand….I have to choose Martina’s engrish. We make more can be taken as an individual statement and A mild winter as another statement. But…I have no idea what Photos go up Merry Christmas means…anyway…love this segment <3

  28. LOL i really luv this segment. plz go 2 yoochun’s mum’s cafe!!!!!! and… im sorry simon martina’s engrish was better T.T  but ur still awsum!!!!!!!!!

  29. HAHAHA loved the joke about the soup with Yoochun’s add XD so funny! And I am voting for Martinas engrish, sorry Simon! :P

  30. Voting for Martina’s Engrish, because Simon’s can be explained in a very simple way – as two separate statements. One says they make more (pajamas, money, whatever), and the one below is “a mild winter” the pajama maker wishes you to have wearing their product. Plus, it’s written with bigger letters, so it’s possible that you’re supposed to read those first, and then you get “a mild winter/ we make more” which is no Shakespeare, but imho makes enough sense as an advertisement. As for pictures going up… I have absolutely no idea what it was supposed to mean! It’s a winner

  31. Whoops! Clicked it twice!

    Oh well…..I vote for Yoochunnie!!!

  32. I would really love to see the inside of a traditional Hanok. Going to more than one would be OSM

  33. I would really love to see the inside of a traditional Hanok. Going to more than one would be OSM!

  34. MehRainbow

    LOL I think Simon won both challenges. Martina’s Engrish is not as difficult to understand, and Yoochun is just…Yoochun. :D

  35. Martina’s engrish is funnier 

  36. Anonymous

    Martina’s engrish is better :P

  37. LOL, that guy standing in front of the mannequins was there the whole time. I wonder if he was a fan of yours, or maybe he was checking Martina out XD
