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!

 

ToFebruary
  1.  All up on Martina’s Engrish. Ayy boy, YooChun wins hands down. 
    Suggestion 1: Epic year end. Head down to Itaewon for your next WANK. 
    Suggestion 2: Forfeit- Sing and dance to the chorus of Itaewon Freedom.

    A blessed Christmas and a glorious New Year. 

  2. Oh, and Simon for the win on Engrish…  That was just wrong in all the right ways.

  3. Ayy girl, can I get you some soup? win.
    Please take pictures go up?? Yes it’s understandable but… I will probably score 0 if I wrote that for an English test.
     

  4. Martina wins the engrish, but simon definately wins the idol photo contest :D

  5. Sorry Simon, but Martina’s engrish was better! and i gotta say that Martina’s idol pic is better, cause im JANG GEUN SUK biased. :P and you guys didn’t forget U-KISS either! hehe i saw their pictures!

  6. Sorry, Martina! I have to go with Simon’s Engrish and idol >.<

  7. Sorry, Simon, Martina’s engrish was funnier! Simon wins the idol, though :)

  8. I say Martina’s Engrish and Simon’s idol. I mean, I understand sponsoring things, but -soup-?? Haha. 

  9. Martina’s Engrish definitely won. Simon’s engrish was seriously lame. And not really funny.

  10. Sorry Simon, Martina wins on both : engrish and JGS… gotta love that man in black..;0) Absolutely loved this new segment and hope you’ll both get better… Martina did give you her cold …. take care guys, you rock

  11. The ENGRISH: “Please take pictures Go up Merry Christmas!” vs. “We make more a mild winter.” Martina had that one in the bag. Her’s makes no
    sense whatsoever.

    The PICTURE: Jang Geun Suk vs. Park YooChun… I say Simon wins that one because he’s practically kissing his bowl of soup (or whatever it is)! AND he’s face-arousaling with his glass of ice water. Jang Geun Suk is just standing there holding an overly large bottle of perfume (or cologne? Smelly-good stuff).

    The girls asking for a picture was so sweet! XD

  12. I vote for Martina’s engrish and kpop idol.  I love me some Jang Geun Suk !!

    I think we need videos at all the famous kdrama film locations :))

  13. I vote for Martina’s Engrish!! XDD 
    And could you please visit Hongdae 홍대 next time??!!!!!!! I always wanted to see how it’s like with indie bands and millions of cafes! 
    And DongDaeMoon 동대문!! DDM has the cheapest clothes and the best 잔치국수!
    Gosh, I still remember when I had my first 잔치국수 at 동대문 with my mom :)

  14. I vote for Marina’s Engrish and kpop idol!!

  15. Heeey!!! I got a photo of Jang Geun Suk in Myeongdong too! It looks like that same one Martina had a photo with. WOOT!
    I vote for Simon’s Engrish and Martina’s Kpop idol (bonus points for posing with the socks too)

  16. Martinas because Simons (well both make a bit of sense in a way) makes more sense

  17. simon for english and martina for idol !!

  18. I vote Martina on the Engrish and Simon on the Kpop idol. ^^ I like the new format you guys chose. I was worried it wouldn’t be as fun as WTF’s segment used to be like, but I had fun with this. I hope you feel better! 

  19. Also if you want celebs on WANK, try catching U-KISS. Several already like watching your videos and you’ve spoken to them before. You may have to wait a while though since they’re probably really busy now but they’re bound to have some time later on.

  20. Martina’s Engrish won I think. And Sukie of course. ^^ It would be great if you guys could show stuff in Incheon. I’m hoping to go to Yonsei in the summer and am wondering if there’s anything awesome hiding near the university. But that may be a bit far for you guys.

  21. I vote for Simon’s engrish :)
    and wow I like WANK :D

  22. martina on the engrish, and simon on the k-pop idol

    i loved your video, it was funny and refreshing ^^

    merry christmas!

  23. I think Simon won on the engrish and k-pop idol. :) 
    I want to go shoping there!!!!!!

  24. Martina wins the engrish and k-pop idol.  I mean.. It’s Jang Geun Suk.  I give her props for taking a picture next to him. 

  25. i think martina’s engrish is bettterrrrrrrrrrrr XD

  26. I’m so sorry Simon but Martina takes lead with 2:0 :] I kind of agree with earlier comment that ‘We make more a mild winter’ is too classic and somehow I just don’t like Yoochun as much as Jang Geun Suk :DD PS. I’d love to see you guise explore Apgujeong!

  27. my engrish vote goes to simon, because I think it’s more funny and love your new segment btw! I just think he should have dance in a more public place, maybe even with the song in the backround as a higher punishment :P

  28. I love this video! And in Korea clothes seem to be so cheap? I thought “2,900, that’s like here (Japan)” and then I remembered yours are Won… FML.

  29. I think Martina wins the Engrish sign because it’s doesn’t make any sense, but Simon definitely wins with the huge ad of Micky(which is freaking adorable!)

  30. Haha, Exit 5 is were i used to meet my friends =)
    Bbobki is not so nice i think… but if you do not break the pic, you can go to the seller and get a new one for free….. thats what i was told so.
    Hope you have merry christmasy days!!!

  31. Martina won the engrish and the picture.  Sorry Simon.  I’m sure you will win my vote next week :)

  32. hmmm martina for engrish and simon for the picture :D you guys should either go to a noraebang and sing for us!!! or visit gupabal falls

  33. I was so eagerly anticipating this new series of yours! :D When I got up today and realised it was Wednesday I immediately remembered that you would post the first episode today and was happy to realise Korea is 8 hours ahead of my time zone, so the wait would be short :3 And it was a lot of fun to see you outdoors for once, poor Simon though *pats* Get better soon! And I think I will vote Martina in the Engrish competition ;)

    • Korea is 14 FREAKING HOURS ahead of me (East Coast United States). So whenever I’m on the computer, Simon and Martina are probably asleep and the videos are up for a long time so sometimes I panic (especially when commenting for something like the old WTF Packages.) D:

  34. Engrish – Martina. Photo – Simon (I mean, look at the size of Yuchun!) Best WANKer – Judging from the episodes I’ve seen of Running Man (I’m on ep. 23), I would say Yong Hwa from CNBLUE. He found everything! Or Jong Kook, but only if you plan to attack people in future episodes. Actually, that would be fun. Or, go big and get Kwang Soo or Joong Ki!! Boy, would you get a lot of viewers if you pulled that off!

    On second thought, make Jong Kook chase Simon. I might even pay to see that.

  35. I’ll vote for Martina’s Engrish :) And I also want to say that I love you new concept for WANK, seems like it will be very fun ^^ Keep up the good work, and I hope you get better soon, Simon!

  36. you guys should wank in the hello kitty caffe

  37. I’m going with Martina’s Engrish.  I got the meaning of Simon’s right away, where I had no idea what Martina’s was trying to express.  

  38. Please take pictures go up merry christmas??? nope i don’t understand..Martina wins because with Simon’s engrish you can at least take a guess at the meaning..the other one is way out there in left field

  39. Eatyourkimchi is totally awesome! I’m a fan too, but not from Korea ^.^ – from Norway

    Martine’s  Engrish should win.. come on.. Please take pictures go up Merry Christmas?? >.<
