Happy Belated Valentine’s Day, everyone! Yesterday we went out for a romantic couple’s WANK in Korea and did some couple-ey things. One we’ve done many times before, and another we’ve never tried before in our lives. Cool!

The first thing we did was completely new to us: a cake decoration cafe. Basically, you go to this bakery, pick out a cake type (like chocolate, strawberry, sweet potato, cheesecake, etc), and then you decorate it! They’ll make the cake for you and leave it as a blank canvas for you to paint your masterpiece on. When it comes to decorating the cake, you have to pick out your own toppings at the self-serve toppings bar. Every item has a price tag associated with it, and prices range anywhere from 300 won to 2,500 won. Once you’re done decorating, bring your cake up to the cash, they’ll tally all that you’ve used, and calculate the final price. Our cake: 20,000 won, which is less than 20 bucks. Not bad!

As for how the cake tastes…we actually don’t know! When we were walking back home at night, after finishing our day long WANK, we stopped by Cafe Lua and gave them the cake. She was working a long night, so we figured we’d offer her the cake instead, because sharing is caring. It was only when we started walking home afterwards that we realized, hey, it might seem very arrogant of us to give someone a cake with pictures of us on it. Oops!

Anyhow, the second part of our romantic WANK was at a Korean Sticker Booth. Woot! Now, we’ve been to Korean Sticker Booths before, looong time ago, and we do go to them occasionally, but we haven’t actually been to one in a while. Well today’s the perfect day for it!

As you saw in the challenge, we had to make Valentine’s Day cards, and then we had to pit our best one against each other. Here’s the full gallery of the cards, in case you were wondering what the others looked like (or, if you wanted to use them as Valentine’s Day cards for your friends, of course!)

Moving on, many of you might not know what McCol’s soda tastes like, and so you probably don’t understand how horrendous a punishment it is for us to have to drink it. Please note, though, that it’s not meant to be a punishment drink. Some people enjoy McCol’s soda and think it’s delicious. We, however, are not those people. McCol’s tastes very, very, very bad to us. Nasty bad. In fact, we even use it as a prank when we have new people come over to our place, like “hey! Want to try a McCol’s? It’s delicious!” and then we watch their reactions. Priceless. Now you get to watch our reactions when we drink this. Yuck!

And lastly, you know these WANKs wouldn’t be complete without some bloopers! There’s so much that we have to cut out of these videos to keep them of decent length. We cut out our entire food eating sequence! It wasn’t anything special, though: we just went for Korean street food: dokbokki and twiggum. Anyhow, check it out here!

  1. Ooh, I love the idea of decorating my very own cake! (esp. if I, um, did not have to make it myself.)

    A leeetle bit late, but I hope you had a fantastic Valentine’s Day! :)

    (small question, though: why is this posted under ‘kpop’?)

  2. Just realised that this is incorrectly labeled as Kpop cathegory rather than WANK category. I must admit that I have watched the McCol’s parts of this like 20 times as a “pick me up”. This is just soooooo awesome!

  3. Simon’s idol. The Engrish is almost a tie, but I’m going to go with Martina’s

  4. you guys should come take purikura in japan
    !  the machines you have there, although japanese, are REALLY old, and since purikura is really popular in japan now, it has really evolved a lot.

    cute wanking though.  the cake making looks sooo fun! oh and i vote for martina for both idol and engrish ^_-

  5. I think Martinas Engrish was perhaps the best ever and while both Idols were kind of “meh” I give that one as well to Martina based on general awesomeness.

    Plus I could really go for some McCol’s soda right now… :)

  6. hahahaha 2pm’s got nothing on you!!!! ahaha!!!
    and i vote for Lee Hyori!!!!!! and Engrish goes to Martina!!!!

  7. What’s the name of the cake-decorating shop?

  8. Okay, those couple shirts were /adorable/!

    And I have to vote Martina for Icon and Engrish this week. You just can’t beat Lee Hyori and Demon Coffee.

  9. I thought Simon was going to go all “Blue Steel” “Flaming Ferrari” lol

  10. You guys are so cute that you make my cheeks hurt from smiling.

  11. Celebrity: Martina! I really like Hyori(:
    Engrish: I have no idea..

  12. where is this cake place?! I NEED TO GO I HAVE THIS WEEKENDF REEEEEEEEE LOL

  13. “It is not a tumor.”
    Hooray for “Kindergarten Cop” quotes! :D

  14. Omg you guys are soooo cute!

  15. Last summer when I was in Seoul it was unbearably hot, and I hadn’t eaten anything in hours. I was trying to catch the bus, and some promotion event nearby was handing out free McCol. Even when you’re sweating, exhausted, hungry, and dehydrated, McCol tastes crappy. I was only able to chug the entire thing because I was just that dehydrated!

  16. If possible, could you let us know the name or location of the cake decoration cafe? Perhaps a link where to find one? Thanks! /goes off to google one of them =D

  17. You guys are too cute >3< And Ouran references? WIN! Hunny-senpai is my favorite host x3 I even has an Usa-chan!

  18. This was one of my favorite Wank videos from you guys!  You two were just so cute and couplely the whole time!  :D  and the Cake decorating store is epic.  I wish we had one here.  

  19. Tooo cute <3  Haha I have to say this: Simon — at first I had the same feeling as Martina. Why the giant thing of flowers(?) and the random yellow splotch on the bottom? Your explanation redeemed it all :) Martina — you have to admit that your hubby the one to beat? I can't think of any non-korean couples that would take sticker photos on valentine's day and say it was funn. Most bfs would barf after hearing the idea of go to sticker booths for valentines day. 

    Martina wins for the idol (and the soju)!!
    Simon gets the engrish.

  20. Great that you did a Valentine’s Day special! Martina’s Engrish was better. The idol goes to Simon. Really liked the street food in the bloopers.

  21. Let’s see, I’m gonna have to give the engrish to Martina. It was bad bad bad. And Simon wins the idol (<3). 

    Hope you had a happy Valentine's Day. You two are super cute!!!

  22. You two had your arms around each other throughout the whole video, it seemed. :) Also I think this is the first time we’ve ever seen you two kiss on camera! It gave me the warm fuzzies. :) But I’m glad that you two don’t usually show a lot of physical affection on camera, because it makes few PDAs that much more valuable and special to us, like we’re allowed to be part of your little world of love… [/sappy] 
    I WUV YOU 2 SO MUCH! 

  23. 2am and martinas engirsh

  24. WOW that cake decorating cafe is a really good/interesting business idea!! especially how they have all the nice decor stuff ready for you to use (not just frosting and crappy toys). Would be cool to have one here. 

  25. You guiz looked sooooo cute! Happy Valentines Day! Sorry Simon. Martina for the Engrish aaaannnndd the Idol. Love your hair and make up Martina.

  26. I have to say Simon has the best picks this time.

  27. haha XD your couple tees are really cute~ :D 

  28. Immediately after I finished watching the video, I received this email and instantly thought of Martina..its the cutest airplane ever! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/15/eva-airs-hello-kitty-plan_n_1276230.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000003

    also, i LOVE LOVE LOVE your couples shirt!! that’s so freakin’ awesome!!!!

  30. Love this video! XD Where was the cake cafe? Are they common in Korea? I would like to visit one when I’m there this summer!

  31. … beer soda? + Vitamins? Oh god why.

  32. To anyone who hasn’t tried it, you have no idea how disgusting Mccol is. I got the chitters and the heebeejeebees after every sip.

    My first week in Korea I tried to drink a 500 ml bottle of it. I was able to get through half. It’s still sitting in my fridge 6 months later as a reminder of how horrible it is.

  33. Random EYK fan was cute! :)

  34. You guys are adorable! Loved this WANK… well, I love all of ‘em. I couldn’t stop laughing at the JYP phone threat too ahahaha. My vote’s for both’s Simon’s idol and Engrish!

  35. Simon’s Engrish and Idol! I think Simon wins both this week! :)

  36. Good job skipping with the cake and not dropping it.
