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!

  1. I just love you guys! And your dog too!

  2. tootaloo

    anybody else think the guy in the back at the start was a mannequin?

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

  4. minzychan

    i love u guys and ur videos

  5. Alison Yu

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

  6. 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

  7. Liz Chai

    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

  8. 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

  9. Anonymous

    Simon won the english and the kpop idol challenge. sorry martina!

  10. Fatin Amira

    Hey guys!~ Wow seems like you guys had so much fun in Myeongdong! I was just there a few days ago! Where did you guys buy the kpop socks in Myungdong because I have been searching and searching but there is nooone! Not even in Dongdaemun! Please help! :((

  11. Anonymous

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

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

  13. 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

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

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

    u guys r sooo creative!

  17. jericho98

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

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

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

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

  21. 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!

  22. 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…

  23. Simon and Martina,
    while you are wanking why don’t you put together a video of seoul?
    Check this video out.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIHnSRyQr4o&list=LLFPlm63skQoX0XEtNOoogQQ&feature=mh_lolz

    • 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!

  24. 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!  

  25. 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

  26. 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!!!!!!!!!

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

  28. 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

  29. Whoops! Clicked it twice!

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

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

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

  32. MehRainbow

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

  33. Val Daga

    Martina’s engrish is funnier 

  34. Anonymous

    Martina’s engrish is better :P

  35. 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

  36. i liked martina’s engrish..i mean u could figure both of them out (with difficulty but still could) but i really liked martina’s it was so funny

  37. Martina’s engrish was funnier than simon’s tbh :) 

  38. Alexander who used to be in U-KISS would be a GREAT WANKer I would bet. He speaks English and he’s super duper oober hilarious. Just a thought (: 

  39. I’ve got one thing to say…BEST BLOGGERS EVER! XD…LOL.. and also I vote for simon…martina’s engrish was a little bit understandable, but for simon.. I was like…”WHAT THE HELL IS YOUR MESSAGE!”… that’s all…keep it up guys :)..

  40. Don’t forget the arcades with the music games. Pump it Up is a Korean game that has a worldwide fanbase =)

  41. Martina’s engrish are being way better! GO UP!

  42. i think martina’s engrish is better… and i look up there is also Japanese sentence on that board and realize the meaning of both (Eng & Jap) sentence is similliar. similliar in the weird meaning i mean… LOL

  43. Conductor 37

    I didn’t understand who Martina’s idol was.

  44. oh i think martina’s engrish was better. 

  45. Hmm I definitely think Martina’s engrish was better. Sorry Simon :/
    I’m loving WANK a lot :P LOL

  46. Oh I LOVED IT! I must be honest, I didn’t watch the WTF vids, at least not all of them, I am sure I will enjoy WANKs videos so much more.

    Are you planning to visit other cities or will you focus on Seoul? I’d like to see some parts of Busan (if you plan to travel within SK).
    As ideas, and these might be too tourist-cliche : a mall,theme coffee shops like the Hello Kitty one (sorry Simon!) , Cheonggyecheon, Hwanghak-dong Flea Market and idk just interesting spots :D

  47. Simon for the Engrish and Martina for the celebrity. When I read Martina’s sign, I kind of figured instantly, “Oh, they mean go upstairs to take pictures. Got it.” But for Simon’s I went, “……. schwat….”

  48. SIMON AND MARTINAAAA! U HAVE TO GO TO EVERLAND AND THEN SING NEVERLAND THERE HEHEHEHE =) AND THEN RIDE THE T EXPRESS AND THEN AND THEN AND THEN FILM U SCREAMING ON IT AND THEN AND THEN AND THEN… yeaaaa i ran out of ideas… but everland is a great place full of rides =D)) <- double chin hehehehe

  49. awww, great video!! i really enjoyed it! even the bloopers were super fun. i thought it was awesome too that you guys were recognized and these people wanted to take pictures with you!!

    hmm… i think Martina’s English is the winner BUT i think you guys could do better… they weren’t really that funny :p  i liked both k-pop finds though, so i dunno… i’ll let others choose :p

  50. martina’s engrish won, but if it serves of any consolation simon, you picture DEFINETELY won! im really loving the WANK !  great ideia ^^
    i wish you guys would go to a park or something like it…

  51. I’m going to have to go with Martina for both!!!!!!! I LOVE ME SOME JANG GEUN SUK!!!!!!! yum

  52. Love, Love, LOVE your new wed segment!!! Looking forward to the next one~~!!!^^

  53. Martina def wins for kpop~ :D I will promise you~~~
    but simon wins for engrish :D

  54. vaxanne

     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. 

  55. Oh my god, it’s JKS! Martina wins for Kpop! Simon for Engrish! Love you guys, keep it up!

  56. I liked Simon’s Engrish better. It made me crack up~
    BUUUT: I liked Martina’s K-Pop idol poster better. 
    ___<)

  57. matina’s photo thing is betta ^^

  58. simon’s engrish poster ! It makes you think about more. 

  59. Courtney N.

    Martina For Engrish!! Simon For Picture!! XDD

  60. Simon for the win!!  that would make me pause and wonder why longer then martina’s.

  61. I think Simon’s won. Martina’s you can make some sense of it, but Simon’s I’m not even sure where it needs to be corrected.

  62. well I think Martina’s sign was a little off , but simon’s sign well for me, it makes a little sense , sooo , this time I think Simon won :)

    *neway , Merry Christmas for both of you and please be healty ! ^^

  63. Anonymous

    martina’s engrish! :) simon’s engrish was pretty cool too, but his picture was cooler!!

  64. Simon for Kpop Idol Photo and Martina for Engrish ^O^ Yay :DDD

  65. I vote for Simon for the Engrish, but Martina for the Kpop Idol Photo! ^.^

  66. Places to visit: Seonyudo Park, Yeouido Park (on the Han River) at night, the Twosome Place cafe’s with their yummy cakes, Edae (이대), and maybe show us some places that are common for people to go to like noraebang~
    I love this segment to death, even if it makes me want to cry because I’m not back in Korea this winter ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ Please keep it up! Simon get better! Eat lots of bibimbop! I hear it’s good when you’re sick!!

  67. Also I think you should visit Mokpo. Its a great coastal city really far South.  I lived there for 2 years and loved it!

  68. Sorry Martina, I was rooting for you but Simon’s Engrish sign was just better… :(

  69. 이신비밀

    I am voting for Martina Engrish :D

  70. Simon won the pic challenge but Martina’s engrish was better! Loved the new video segment and I hope you both feel better soon.

    Simon’s engrish was better.

  72. Martina for Engrish!! 

    You should go explore another city like… I’m-totally-not-biased-at-all-because-I-live-there-Deagu (대구)!!! 

    Love your vids ^^

  73. Martina wins in both Engrish and Celebrity photo! :)

  74. My favorite place in Korea has gotta be Gwanghwamun~ you guys should definitely visit that area and the river! ^^ It’s so beautiful at night, even if a little cold.

  75. A suggestion in korea they eat alot of of pork and have like soju when they do so if foreigners who dont drink or  eat pork are there any resturant where they can go to or ???

  76. You guys should definitely go to Hanok city and Namsan tower or another night view!!And Incheon airport.
    ^^

  77. Martina’s Engrish was better! :D

  78. Conductor 37

    I liked Martina’s Engrish better. But I liked Simon’s picture-with-an-idol better.

  79. I love Martina very much but… xD For me Simon rocked this WANK! I liked his engrish better and… come on! Yoochun! ;D 

  80. junelizondo

    Martina wins in engrish

  81. next wankking is at SKI RESORT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  82. Although I thought that all of the pictures and the Engrish were brilliant, I would have to say that Martina won with her picture, and Simon won with his Engrish. “We make more a mild winter” ? What? What? What? O.o

  83. I loved it, it was so much fun!! I love this new segment!

  84. PICTURE: MARTINA oh my gosh i love jang geun seok so much!! <3
    ENGRISH: MARTINA omg i sound biased but that made me go WTF the most XD

  85. Picture: Simon
    Engrish: Martina!

  86. For the Engrish I think I have to vote for Martina….Simon’s one still make sense XD But Love Simon’s Yoochun pic!!! Ahhhh~~wanna see that too ><

  87. Martina: English
    Simon: Picture

    Great first adventure.  Myeongdong sounds like a fun place to visit.  I would like to go there if I ever visit Seoul.

  88. I like Simon’s Engrish sign better, but I liked Martina’s idol picture better! ^^

  89. Martina wins for the Engrish, but Simon wins for the picture!

  90. Anonymous

    1 vote martina!!
    simon’s was just missing a work, martina’ss choice was just o.O

  91. I vote martina…. Technically her Engrish also made sense it was just missing a few things… It looks like there’s a giant step right there next to the sign so, go up probably meant that… and simon wins the photo contest especially since it’s Yoochun lol Ayy girl that was sooo funny

  92. Katelyn Young

    Tough call… I have to say Martina wins this round.

    On another note: LOVED THIS!!! Great idea! I’m glad you guys chose to do this. Can’t wait for the next one!

  93. I think Martina Won The english I love Mickey so i think simon won the photo part

  94. Anonymous

    MARTINA’S ENGRISH! 
    Simon’s engrish kiiiinda makes sense …but I totally have no idea what Martina’s was about…

  95. E Olson

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

  96. Mayra Venegas

    I think Martina won both the Engrish and the photo contest! I kinda understood Simon’s and is Kang Geuk Suk holding a giant bottle of  “Snail Therapy”? The glare kinda looks like an S in front of the N…

    Also, the guy standing by the mannequins at 0:13 – 0:42 seemed very bored!  And he stood there for the longest time.

  97. I got an idea. Why don’t you take this opportunity to ask koreans some of the questions that people have put up? WANK at the yeuido. I think that’s where they have the national assembly building and maybe KBS??

  98. Martina totally wins, Simon’s engrish made sense, I got the idea of what they were saying.. But yeah Martina’s made no sense at all. GO MARTINA!!

  99. E Olson

    Everland!!  WANK in Everland!!

  100. 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.
     

  101. I VOTE MARTINA! it made less sense for me than simons lol

  102. I vote for Simon’s cuz i thought martina’s actually made sense O_O wow I guess I’m a fail at english then XD

    Aw you guys found fans awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wanna watch your vids in class too…..

  103. Martina’s Engrish wins, but Simon should get an infinite amount of points for actually finding an advertisement of Yoochun. Ayyy Girl!

  104. Martina owns at Engrish! Don’t deny!

  105. Go WANKING in Hyewah or Insa-Dong – but the old part, not the new touristy trap crappy souvenir row part. :)

  106. I thought that I was going to miss the WTF segment so much, but this is promissing! Great episode guise! Martina FTW in the engrish & the pic :) Simon, get better soon!

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

  108. Martina wins!! IT sounds so wrong!

  109. omg jang geun suk~!!! best pose :3 and i liked martina’s engrish better :p

  110. Cendana K

    Voting for Simon’s english haha =) love these episodes of wondering around korea :)

  111. Simon’s Engrish was way better, but Martina wins the Idol photo.

  112. 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!

  113. Eliza Carter

    Martina’s Engrish and Simon’s idol! ^_^ Ayyyy girl, can I buy you some soup? XD Get well soon guys, merry christmas! 

  114. Martina def wins for engrish but Simon obviously wins for the idol pic, :D

  115. Sascha Wong
    Sascha Wong

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

  116. I like Martina’s Engrish && idol better xD sorry Simon!

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

  118. Have to agree Martina wins the Engrish but Simon wins for Yoochun (but I have to admit I saw him in S (can’t spell it) Scandal and loved him while I don’t know who Jang Geun Suk is or at least I don’t recognize him).  Hope you guize are still doing these when I come in April, would love to be a part of one!

  119. Sorry Simon but I have to vote for Martina.. Her Engrish was way better and Jang Geun Suk, well it’s Jang Geun Suk!!!!! <3 

  120. Rachel Allen

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

  121. Martina’s Engrish and Simon’s Picture of Park Yoo Chun

  122. yaz2494

    I got a question was there stairs by the sign that said “please take pictures go up” if there was then I pick Simon if there wasn’t any then I pick Martina. :) 

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

  124. 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

  125. Martina won, in my opinion, for the engrish because I could completely understand what they meant in Simon’s engrish, but not Martina’s. As for the pictures… no  have to explain why Yoochun wins?

  126. 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

  127. 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 :))

  128. Yunho Jung

    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 :)

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

  130. 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)

  131. I liked martina’s engrish n simon pic of kpop idol oh i think i’d be so awesome if you guys actually saw a k-pop idol 

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

  133. Anonymous

    simon for english and martina for idol !!

  134. totally Simon’s. I don’t even understand but for Martina’s I understood what they were trying to say. But Martina’s totally rocked with Jang Geun suk!

  135. I vote for Martina’s Engrish!!!  Can’t wait to see more WANKing videos!!!!!

  136. 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! 

  137. This is hilarious! The simon’s dance. I’d have to go for Simon on Engrish. 

  138. Anonymous

    “No, that’s not fair. I wanted this one.” Lol, everyone loves Yoochun, so I vote for Simon on the idol one. Park Yoochun FTW!

  139. Anonymous

    I vote Simon for the Engrish and Martina for the k-pop idol! :D

  140. 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.

  141. I have those reindeer antler clips too ^u^…and the Easter bunny ears!…thank you Claire’s.

    And I think I have to vote for Martina’s engrish sign; yeah~ that sign would confuse me.

  142. 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.

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

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

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

    merry christmas!

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

  146. 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. 

  147. i think martina’s engrish is bettterrrrrrrrrrrr XD

  148. I want yo to go to Dongdaemun and to ride the “Disco jump”-attraction,
    if it’s still there! I was there in March this year and it was probably
    the most painful thing I’ve ever experiences. . I WANT TO SEE YOU
    SUFFER BROHOHO!

  149. 1 vote for Martina’s engrish line ~~ 

    Guys!! you’re famous even in korea !! (so lovely, your korean fan girls <3)

  150. 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!

  151. I vote Martina’s Engrish is better…. haha Go Up Merry Christmas!
    Martina definitely also won the photo challenge. :D

  152. Simon definitely wins the Engrish because it really doesn’t make sense while Martina’s we have a good guess on what it means….

    As for the picture Martina definitely wins over Simon. Even though Micky was in a huge ad, I thought that since JGS was a standee it seemed more “life-like” haha I really hope during one of these episodes you’ll end up taking a picture with a real kpop idol!

  153. Anonymous

    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

  154. simon gets my vote for the engrish cause it made me laugh more. i would pick yoochun over jang geun suk. so SIMON i guess and martina why didnt you get taeyang socks? *angryface*. too sexy perharps? lol

  155. 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.

  156. Anonymous

    Sorry Simon, my vote goes to Martina’s engrish line.
    Your engrish line seemed too . . . Classic?

  157. Rachael Volk

    Martina won with the picture, but Simon definately won with the engrish. I can understand Martina’s (basically they just forgot punctuation) while Simon’s not so much. I vote more restaurants, but that’s because the food looks and sounds pretty awesome. Pretty sure if I ever did a vlog it’d be cooking food haha. In the case of suggestions on where to go next – I’m going outside the typical scope and suggesting a booking bar! Homo or Hooker hill would also be interesting to see with all the talk about them.

    Edit: Also, are you two manually counting these votes o.O? Or do you have some kind of software for this? Otherwise might be time to see about just inserting simple click-vote polls and people can explain why in the comments.

  158. 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!)

    Love Martina but… Simon’s Engrish wins for me

    But Martina beat him by a landslide I mean come on a picture with Prince of Asia can’t beat that.

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

  162. Mollie B.

    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 ;)

  164. 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.

  165. 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!

    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.  

  167. 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

  168. Nice! I like this new segment. Though Simons punishment was too short… and why didn’t you use some background music? That would’ve been better, maybe xD

    And for the engrish, I give Martinas 5 out of 5! xD

  169. Bhellesweet

    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?? >.<

  170. Hershey Kisses

    I think Simon wins this one!
    I mean “We make more a mild winter…”
    Even if you changed the wording around “We make a more mild winter” it still wouldn’t really make sense. I mean, how do you “mild winter”?
    But you guys should go to Hongdae!
    I think it would a lot more crowded, but I’m sure you’ll find more Engrish & K-Pop Idols there ^___^

  171. Oh man I love those cookies. The old lady I use to buy those cookies from in Hannam, always used a Christmas tree shape cookie. Those corners were a pain to cut out the cookie. XD

  172. aw man!!  i was just in myeongdong last week…one of my goals before leaving korea was to meet you guys but i failed!  DANGIT!  anyway….great segment!  looking forward to more!  :)

  173. Martina’s Engrish was the best :)

  174. I love it!!! The video was osm, Martina totally wins in Kpop Idol and in the engrish pic. Go martina!

    Always so funny ^^ but i have to vote now : Martina for the engrish and Simon for the picture ^^

  176. Anonymous

    Martina’s Engrish and picture pose wins all the way.

  177. Martina wins in Engrish and in Kpop idols! I don’t know who that guy was that Simon found…he never said his name ;o;

  178. 진짜 좋아요!!! You guys should go to Itaewon’s Homo Hill!!! There is no better place to wank!!

  179. Kamsahmnida you guys. I got to see a little bit of Korea and I’m so happy. By the way I choose Martina’s use of Engrish. Can’t wait for the next WANK episode.

  180. Shirley S.

    Simon’s Engrish board obviously. So funny XD

  181. Martina’s Engrish Sign ;o I like how wrong and funny it sounds :3 

  182. Loved Simon’s Engrish sign the best…sorry Martina, but I LOVED your eyeshadow!!

  183. I think both of the signs were understandable enough, so I choose Simon’s engrish as the winner because it is the most ridiculous sounding of the two. WE MAKE MORE A MILD WINTER.

  184. Jessica Friday

    I think Simon’s Engrish is awesome. Pajamas change the weather! WHOO! Thanks for the awesome video guys. I’m excited to see more of this segment. :)

  185. I’d have to pick Simon’s Engrish. It’s pretty awesome, especially when said with the European accent. :D

  186. Merry Christmas , GO UP ! ;) I vote for Martina

    MARTINA WINNSSS :D

    oh i felt kinda embarrassed clicking on your vid now!! 

    i choose Martina’s Engrish

    oh and i’m so jealous of you guys, you’re surrounded by so much cuteness and awesomeness!!!

    Simon’s sign made more sense but I thought it was way funnier. But Martina’s photo with JGS was awesome.

  190. nice!
    I hope next week you will post an amazing place as we will be in Korea with my friend and it could give us ideas on where to go =)

  191. Cyllene

    LMAO .. loving this new segment :)  I vote for Martina’s Engrish sign .. the innuendo was hilarious.  Simon’s Yoochun picture was pure awesomeness :)

  192. I hope you guz didn’t throw up Popp-ki on the sreet :)

  193. Simon you won the picture challenge definitively (YooChun bias here so it was a no brainier XD)! And also the Engrish challenge! Sorry Martina love you <3

  194. Sophie Krafft

    I think Simons engrish sign was the best. HOWEVER !!! Martinas idol was OSM. Jang Geun Suk, ftw <33

  195. Sara Moadi

    I think that Simon’s engrish won. I wish we you guys showed a bit more of Myeongdong. You guys should totally go somewhere relating to Korean Art, I haven’t seen you guys address that a lot. Besides it should make of a much more fun challenge.

  196. I like Martina’s Engrish best. Simon had a nice poster, but her Engrish is funny!

  197. Simonnnnnnn!!!
    His Engrish is definitely good ^^
    I also vote for his Yoochun pic :p
    Why? Cause he’s SO adorableeeee~

  198. Simon, you really found gold with this Engrish-sign~ 1 point for you!
    Next location…. Ewha? (Why can it not be Ehwa? Ewha sounds so…. wrong….)

  199. faeriedoust

    Simon’s engrish did make sense, but it was more funnier than Martina’s. Sorry! *runs behind a Jang Geun Seuk* <– Martina won the kpop  idol pic tho ^__^ But I tots agree that martina was easy on you Simon, that street was empty!

    In your next WANK can you spend a little time actually talking to people there? Or doing stuff with other people around? I think that would be cool! :D

  200. I LOVE UUU MARTINAAAA~ but I’m going to vote fro Simon in the Engrish department. -_- I made the “WTF” face when I read his lol. AND OMG! You guys were the celebrities~ How does it feel to be ASKED for a photograph instead of you asking for one? Greetings from Chicago! <3

  201. cloiebuggeater

    Simon’s is close to correct, like Martina said. It should probably read : we make a more mild winter or we make more mild winters, saying that the PJs make the winter feel more mild. Martina’s needs more help, either with punctuation or word order. “please go up and take pictures,” is probably what they meant. Fortunately for Martina, it sounds more like we should explore the insides of “Merry Christmas” which could be rather unfortunate. It also made me laugh harder. Yay for Martina. also  
    Jang Geun Suk is way cooler. so double win for Martina :) Sorry Simon.

  202. well well it’s a hard decision to make.
    first of all: The Engrish. I think both of u had better engrish examples in your older vids (epic: twonkle twonkle!). Although I might agree that Simon’s was a teewee bit weirder then Martina’s (sorry my dear). With the Kpop picture I’m definitely on Martina’s side! I like both Idols but I think the point has to go over to Martina because she had a cardboard stand-up which is way cooler then the tube ad! (btw was it real size???) And last but not least: THE BATTLE. Well that’s an easy one: Martina! (If I were a really evil judge I’d degrade Simon one point for cheating!!! >;)

    End result: 2:1 for Martina!!!! Congrats!!! And good luck Simon for next time. ^^

  203. I have to say, although Martina’s sign was pretty bad, I could still initially understand it. Simon’s though….i had to sit there for a few seconds and think “what could ‘We make a more mild winter’ mean….? O_o lol so my vote goes to Simon’s! XD

  204. Sorry Martina, I definitely have to go with Simon’s engrish~ it’s soo…confusing; even for a korean like myself! LOL Merry Christmas you guise~

  205. In February, you need to travel to Ulsan….then you can come see us! hahaha! (Hopefully we will be settled by then!)

  206. brimills1

    SIMON’S ENGRISH FTW! XD

  207. Simon’s engrish wins! With martina’s – if they had just put a coma after ‘please take pictures’ and a period after ‘go up’, the sign would’ve been better.  And it’s a bit of a stretch to make merry christmas part of the sentence above it. If that sign is engrish then there are a lot of engrish signs by non -asians in the USA.

  208. I like Martina’s Engrish sign, but Simon’s idol choice was the best~ sorry my bias <3!  But 
    미남이시네요 is my favorite drama!  From the extra footage, what scene did they shoot at that restaurant?  I'm surprised I don't remember since I've seen that so many times~

  209. I say Simon’s engrish won! that one seriously made no sense to me 

  210. I say Simon’s engrish won… sorry Martina :(

    BUT I do agree that Martina was lenient. I saw the Korean Hand Games video you guys made and poor Martina had to do way more embarrassing things. 

  211. Sorry Simon is feeling weakly and poorest. BUT! On the other hand its nice to see the 2 of you out and about in the world, my favorite part is the fan recognition. well done.

  212. I’m going to vote on Simon for the engrish one , he deserves it . But as for the idol photo , Martina is definitely my choice , because I love You’re Beautiful too ~ ^___^  

  213. i would have to say simon sign was the better… sorry martina!! :( *runs*

  214. Laura Benavides

    I say Martina wins the Engrish challenge~ I agree that Simon’s sign made a little bit of sense, but Martina’s was just strange…hahaha. As for the idol picture, gotta give it to Simon~ 

  215. You found Yoochun XD Too funny! Sorry Martina, I thought Simon’s Engrish was better. Ironically, I can see Yoochun saying it like that, too. His own brand of English, Chungrish. XD Okay, well, this is awesome! I love that you guys are doing this. Why didn’t you include the restaurant portion in the video and stuck it in the bloopers? I think that it is awesome to incluse that in the main video. And heck yes to You’re Beautiful!!!
    And omg, I really wish they imported kpop socks to other countries. I would totally buy those ._.

  216. Stacy Dale

    Love the new adventures!! Martina’s Engrish wins, btw…but Simon’s idol ad was better…

  217. Awesome new segment!  Keep up the great work.  By the way, initial reaction, Simon’s engrish wins ^^

    Wish I was where you are.  Stay warm =)

  218. AWESOME VID GUYS! :)))
    Can’ stop laughing at “I love my water”! xDD
    Well, it’s a super-amazing-extra idea to make this kind of videos. (Im mean “Wank”)
    You guys rock~!
    Well, Simon, let’s see your ‘sexy washing window” in the next video.
    You know we love it when you’re the one doing it. ;p JYJ can’t even compare!
    Anyway! Keep doing a good job~ Thankssssssss!!

    Simon’s Engrish sign wins, even if I thought Martina’s was funny too xD

  220. Anri Lin

    DONGDAEMUN haejuseyo~! :P It’d be nice to see some more *ahem* fashionandbeautyareaseventhoughsimonmightnotwanttogothere ._.
    P.S.: Simon for the engrish challenge, but Martina wins the idol.

  221. Samantha Hascall

    I’m going to have to vote for Martina’s Engrish because the fact that they say “Take Pictures” before “Go Up” seems like more of a misplacement than Simon’s “We make more a mild Winter” which doesn’t seem as confusing. But as for Idol photos, Simon totally won that one. XD Shopping looks so fun in Korea… And it was cool how you ran into fans like that and that students actually watch your  videos in school!

  222. love martinas choice of idol :) so on that basis … martina wins :D

  223. So incredible!!! guys!!! congratulations. From: Colombia…sorry mi english….

  224. Anonymous

    I say Simon won. Martina’s sign was a bit off, but it made sense because you have to step up into the backdrop decorated photo area. So It made sense that it said Please take pictures.
    go up.
     Merry Christmas.
    If they were separate sentences its not so bad. And Simons K-pop Idol was better. SORRY MARTINA!! BUT I LOVE YOU!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
