We’re in Jeju at the moment, as we’ve been on our road trip since Monday, which explains why we’re not posting as many videos this week. I’m sitting down on the couch at our AirBNB now, and, as I write this, my body is covered in bruises. My sides and the front of my body are all peppered with dark purple spots, like a small meteor shower of pain, all over my midsection. Soo Zee didn’t have a single freaking bruise. Not one. She felt no pain. I really don’t understand why. I mean, I’m a grown ass man. I can endure pain, but this was really bad. But Soo Zee didn’t groan once, and her skin is immaculate. Someone please explain! It’s totally unreal.
I really want to understand the reasoning behind this Hula Hoop. I get that a heavier Hula Hoop would result in more energy needed to use it, so you burn more calories. Got it. But those wheels of pain? WTF is that all about? Seriously: how is this supposed to help you lose weight? How is it NOT supposed to be deathly unpleasant? I feel like a Korean person read about this in a medieval torture book and thoughT “damn son, this shit is dope. Let me sell this!” and then became rich off of it. WHAT THE HELL!? I need a scientist or doctor or at least a med student to explain this to me. I’m hurting.
I kinda think that Martina knew that this Korean Hula Hoop of HELL was going to be so painful, as she used it before when she was a teacher, so she pretended not to be able to Hula Hoop, and just wanted to watch me suffer. Though, I’ll admit, it was worth it. I had a great laugh watching this video. Leigh says it’s her favourite WTF ever, though I still love the Panty Hat Challenge more than any other.
If you’re ready to bring the pain to your friends and family, you can pick it up on Gmarket and get to bruising your midsection! Otherwise, we’ve got an extra scene from this video on our app, available on iOS and Android.
We’re gonna be in Busan next, and should be back in Seoul by Thursday. We’ve filmed lots of great stuff so far. Holy smokes Jeju is beautiful! And the food here is phenomenal. AH! You’ll see soon. You’ll see :D
