Welcome back to this week’s edition of the Wonderful Treasure Find, Korea, aka WTF Korea, where we show you some of the mildly interesting things that we’ve found. I’m sure a lot of you know that but I feel like I have to write it out because I haven’t done this in so long. I feel like how I feel when I play basketball after not having played for a year. I get on the court and I know the basics and the rules, but I need to go gentle before I do something embarrassing or injuring. Be gentle with me!

We also were really technically unprepared. Our batteries were dying, even though we didn’t use them for a long time, because we, err, forgot to charge everything. So my mic dies in the video, but fortunately I’m loud enough to be picked up on Martina’s mic. I just sound a lot more echo-et.

So, here’s the deal: Martina found this somewhere and brought it to me and I said, “yes, yes this is perfect for a WTF!” I didn’t even ask her where she got it from. I don’t know where she finds half of her things. She just appears with random stuff from time to time. She’s like a squirrel that runs around when you’re not looking and digs something up and bring it back to you. Wait: are those squirrels or dogs? I don’t know. I wish Spudgy and Meemers could be outdoor animals. Living in an apartment kinda doesn’t let you do that. We’ve got cars everywhere. I’d like an open field where we could just let them run around and play and come back when they’re hungry. Spudgy…would not last long in the wild, I don’t think. Natural Selection is just begging to take him off this planet. That’s not the point. Point is, if we were in the forest, Martina would find random stuff to do WTFs on. She has the ability to find stuff is what I’m trying to say. Like a beaver.

Filming this video was a bit awkward for us. This was the first video we filmed back in our studio, and we were so nervous and excited to be back on camera. I interrupted Martina just about all the time. She scolded me for it afterwards. AH! I’m sorry! I was just too hyper and excitable. Kind of like when I drink a lot of coffee before filming. Like that. Except I didn’t drink a lot of coffee. I don’t drink that much anymore. I used to drink a few cups a day but now I drink only one or one and a bit. I do something new now that really gets me energized for the rest of the day. It’s called “exercising” Ha! We both really got into it when we were in Canada, and now that we’re back in Korea we’re exercising almost every day. And it gets you so much more energized than anything else. Yeah! So that’s why I was so excitable this time around. First video in forever + morning exercise = uncomfortably energetic.

I mentioned how this is no more a pencil case than taping a pencil to the back of your DS is. Anyone have a DS? I have an old one, but not a 3DS. I’ve been playing my Vita more than the old DS. SO EXCITED FOR FINAL FANTASY X/X2 REMAKES TO COME OUT! Sorry if you already heard that in our LiveChat. I’m super chuffed. It’s my second favourite Final Fantasy, next to Final Fantasy 7. Now that Martina’s done her tattoo I’m trying to think of my full arm-sleeve. I’m thinking something videogame/comic related. Dr. Doom and Sephiroth vs Solid Snake and Deadpool? I don’t know. I’m sure re-playing X and X2 will put them higher up in my video game love list. And…this relates to this WTF because…if I was a kid I’d use my Vita as a pencil case. Yep.

Also, we’re announcing the winner of our much delayed Christmas Care package. Whoa is it ever delayed. Congrats to Robin Sutherland! Send us an email and we’ll mail out your package ASAP!

    Krista Gibbs-Castillo

    OMG welcome back guise! XD
    Just wanted to say that I’m stoked for the FFX/FFX-2 remakes as well! ^_^ My next tattoo (yes NEXT tattoo) is going to be FF related. But a cute one. Like Chocobos and Moogles chasing each other around or something. IDK. Haven’t fleshed that idea out yet. But it’s happening!
    Rambling about FF again… ^_^;
    Welcome back again!

  26. CeceAvila

    Yay, you guys are back! So cool that you are potting stuff out just as you said you would. You all mentioned putting stuff out in February, but I was expecting a few days into February. But look at that! Its the 1st and you all put out a video!

    Anyway, I was curious about the comment Martina made. What do you mean something like that is too dangerous for school? And kids aren’t allowed to bring in utensils?

    I can TOTALLY see a situation in which you could use this… but maybe thats because I was never a very good student. XD You always get some down time in class, you can probably mess around with it during passing period as well. I don’t know, it just doesn’t seem that difficult to find and opportunity to use it to me.

  27. Since you guise have been gone for a while, I had to get my “Korean fix” elsewhere. And by elsewhere, I really mean watching a shitload of Kdrama. And now, I’m having a hard being not grumpy anytime I’m not home because I cannot watch my drama. So yeah, in one word, I’m having a hard time having a life lately.

    Guise, that means I need you to keep me mentally sane (somewhat, at least)… Oh boy

  28. You call December 14th’s WTF Korea “Last Week” at the end of the video. I know you’ve been gone for a while, but you guise. Sewiouswy. You guise.

  29. omg i have one of those old Ds’s! I havent bought any new games yet and these games are about 5 or 6 years oldbut idc they are still really fun so when all these other people have one of those 3ds’s, i bring out my blue old ds and start playing those games, nitendogs, littlest pet shop and other stuff anyway SO HAPPY UR BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. This made my week! That toy . . . urr . . . I mean “pencil case” is awesome. . . somewhere in Korea there are teachers confiscating those . . . so they can play with it themselves. ;) I was so excited to see you posting today! I was texting my sister, “eyk is back!!!” We just love you! Thanks for bringing the happy to our day!

  31. That reminds me of two pens I have at home. One has a teeny tiny etch-a-sketch on the other end of it; and the other has the tiniest board for Trouble Board Game on it, along with the tiniest pieces ever. o -o

  32. Yay!!! I missed you guise so much. I was watching random videos waiting for you guise!!!!

  33. Yay you’re back! (p.s i’ve been a fan for years, but this is my first time commenting lol…hi! ^_^; )

  34. MAN! you guise were in Canada and i didnt get to see you :( When i go to korea im invading your studio for sure XD Hope you got back safe :D

  35. I loved FFX/X2! I wish they would remake FF7 using the current software. It would look SO gorgeous. I’m glad you guys are back though because youtube has been boring without you.

  36. You have impeccable taste in Final Fantasy. VII and X reign supreme.
    Furthermore, this is my first EYK comment where I’m not looking through the window with longing and sadness, for I am now in South Korea too! Country homies, or something.

    • AWESOME!!! How long since you landed?? Are you dealing with any culture shock or is everything smooth? And what city are you living in (if you don’t mind me asking)? -Martina

      • Been here a week now, living in Daegu. It’s all going well thus far! Smashed my face into the language barrier a couple of times, but I’ve been teaching myself Korean for the last year and I have Google Translate backing me up for when I really need a word, so no major problems. I kind of went in pretty hard on learning manners and potential cultural faux pas (how the Jesus do you make faux pas a plural?) so nothing has really tripped me up yet! Absolutely loving it though, a year of planning finally pays off. Gonna make my first pilgrimage up to Seoul in the next few weeks, that’ll be good fun.

  37. So looking forward to FFX remaster too! And I have an original DS also, the actual like Japanese model number and everything that my friend bought me, in the pretty soft pink color that I don’t think was available in the US…? I dunno. It just showed up on my step one day.

    And on a random aside, that new LG U+ commercial with GDragon? I was totally like ‘”This is like FF7, with GD as Cloud. Look, he’s got mako eyes and everything, and lifestream all over the place and okay, this is okay, I accept this” because my thoughts then went to TOP as Sephiroth. And I thought, this could be awesome.

    ANYWAY… so glad to have you back! We missed you!

  38. It’s like I’m seeing my friends and family after a really long time /sniffs/ WELCOME BACK GAIZ <3

  39. Cyber_3

    Totally not much to do with the video (which was cute BTW) but, no utensils in high school??????!!!!!!!!!!! will students have to start carving shanks in shop class now? All the things that used to separate school from prison, slowly disolving before my eyes…….

    • I should be clear, tons of stuff is allowed in Korea schools, my students used exacto knives to sharpen their pencils!!! But in Toronto I couldn’t bring metal utensils with my meals, and no knives where allowed at all, even plastic knives! I couldn’t even wear a bandana (which was baby blue with Hello Kitty on it) b/c there was a ban on them due to “gang” fights at my school. *sigh* I’m sure not every school is like that though!

      • Cyber_3

        I don’t know……even way out in the country here my son’s elementary school seems to have a ban on fun. No nuts whatsoever in the school lunches (which have to be 2 and healthy), no time to go home for lunch, no bringing toys to school, even for recess, no climbing on snow hills or ridiculously tame jungle gyms in the winter, segregated grades on the playground, no running unless it’s for a sport…. I can just imagine that recess is a bunch of kids standing around in the 3ft deep snow field staring at each other.

  40. Congrats to the winner!

    Also – this was really fun! I would so fail at school with that! but still..the best pencil case ever. the ones i always got were boring. Just one giant hole for EVERYTHING!

  41. lady_kire

    I have a 3DS and the older DS. But I really only use it to play Pokemon, Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing , or the ocasional weird game you find at the store that most people would never play, but turns out its an underated game and people should play it. I majorly suck at Mario and Zelda games… Unless it’s a game that uses an RPG format, doesn’t involve me figuring out a fight pattern, or lets me do whatever the fuck I want, then I don’t suck.

    I kinda wish I had this pencil case. It would make listening to my extremly boring Canadian politics prof easier.

  42. The funniest part is that it says “last week” at the and jajajajaj

  43. “She’s like a squirrel that runs around when you’re not looking and digs
    something up and bring it back to you. ”
    This sounds frighteningly similar to my dog XD Who might I add will hide just about anything then a month later she brings it out and is like “look what I have.” and I just give her a strange look.
    …Actually I wonder if that’s how the WTF finds work…

  44. Sara Napsey

    YOU’RE BACKKKKKKK. YESHHHH!

  45. I missed you guys. But it gave me time to catch up on all the videos and now I can proudly say I have watched every video from all four channels posted by you guys. I don’t know I if I should be ashamed or proud.

  46. OMGSH why didn’t I have this growing up?!! Also: YOU GUYS ARE SERIOUSLY NOT ALLOWED TO DISAPPEAR LIKE THAT AGAIN! I was starving for something interesting to watch on Youtube! uhuhuhuhuhu <33333

    • Definitely sad for us, but it’s good that they could have a break. Everyone needs a vacation!

      • True true. I am seriously amazed at how much editing work they do and how much fun they look like their having in their videos despite probably not getting a lot of sleep! They’re such awesome people I really hope I meet them one day.

  47. Hahah, Martina would turn the pencil case into a weapon! Missed you both so much!!! How was your trip other than the crazy weather?

    • The crazy weather seriously screwed up all our plans afterwards, but it’s always great seeing our family. We didn’t get the chance to see many of our friends since traveling between cities was freakin’ scary. Huge sheets of ice flying off the back of trucks, chunks of ice falling off bridges, and we almost got scrunched by a falling tree while looking for a parking spot. It was like playing a video game. :O

  48. Billie Christine Beckstead

    I’ve been having EatYourKimchi withdrawals!! Thank you for another video :)

  49. Me too….I’m totally going to play Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD too. I’m tempted to play X-2 first. IDK. One question(SPOILER MAYBE!?!)..are you ready to fight the Dark Aeons in FFX?

  50. OMG it feels like it’s been years without a video!! I missed the EYK crew, it’s good to see you guys again!!! :)

  51. i smiled so hard when i saw a new video in my newsfeed that my cheeks hurt now

    <3 welcome back!

  52. oh my god i remember having one of those but mine was tetris haha…

  53. Hi guys!!!

  54. hapagirl

    You should have seen my face when I saw this. Total happiness! We missed you guys!
    What’s even the point of that thing? It seems like something a family member would buy for you and when you take it school, it gets taken away by the teacher or some jerk takes it when you’re out at recess. As big as a procrastinator as I am, do not ever give me something like that. I’d never do any work. Also Martina should just have a camera on her when she goes shopping so we can all see what sort of things she ends up finding.

  55. andrea chan

    WELCOME BACK <3

    Also I wouldn't be able to study in class if I had that pencil case. The class would be filled with *ffheeeewtpp-* "-MY EYE" disasters.

  56. 1. You both have been sorely missed!! Like for real, chest pains were starting to commence.

    2. As a teacher, I pray that the geniuses at Five Star, Mead, and other school supply companies don’t ever get hold of this idea because I already have a tough time confiscating cell phones in the middle of my lessons. I don’t need my students getting into retro-fun while I’m teaching, unless it’s with an abacus. Second thought, I hope it comes stateside. A toy like that can make the dread faculty meetings that much more entertaining.

  57. Mustache strikes again!!

  58. never leave me again please

  59. I dont care if I work at an office…I WANT IT!!!!! :)

  60. MarVi

    I’ve missed you!

  61. OH MY GOD I MISSED YOU GUYS SO MUCH DONT U EVER LEAVE
