HAY GUISE! It’s time for another livechat! Woohoo! We wanted to take the time today to put out a couple of announcements. In case you like reading more than watching, here are the announcements again, but this time with a bit more details!

1) Vote for us for the Shorty Awards! We didn’t say that in the livechat, but we should have. We’re in first place and we need to keep it that way so we can go down to New York and Nastify the place. Woohoo!

Nominate Simon and Martina for a social media award in the Shorty Awards!Nominate Simon and Martina for a social media award in the Shorty Awards

2) IT’S MY BIRFDAY! Well, not yet, but it will be on January 20th, which is only a few more hours away! Woohoo! The point of this is, we work everyday, but I refuse to work on my birthday. REFUSE, I TELL YOU! So, to compensate for the day we missed, we had to film a few things in advance, like the KpopCharts update, which is why we didn’t include Jaejoong’s video in the update: we filmed before it came out. Also, Music Monday’s gonna be late because we usually get a lot of work done on Sunday. We’ll have to double down on Monday, but we already always double down on Mondays, so I’m not sure if we can quadruple down, but we’re gonna do our best to get the video out ASAP.

3) Martina is going to be out of Korea for a week or so, to be with family. Thank you all for your support and wishes for Martina’s grandfather, but he didn’t pull through, and she’s going back to Canada to be with her mom and dad for a bit. So, when she’s gone, I’m gonna:

a) Be miserable. We’ve never been apart for more than a day since we got married. If we’re apart for more than a few hours we feel terrible. How will we last so long apart? We have no clue.
b) Be filming by myself. We’re trying to get stuff done in advance, like TL;DRs and WANKs, but there’s only so much we can do, you know? So, some alone-time sad videos coming your way!

4) We’re gonna be interviewing CLAZZIQUAI PROJECT! Woohoo! We’re gonna make an announcement video for it soon, where we’ll be taking your questions for them, but we’re super excited that they’re gonna be coming by the studio and hanging out. SWEET! Stay tuned, because we’ll be giving more info soon :D You can check out their latest video here, if you haven’t seen it yet!

  25. Hey, Simon & Martina!

    First off, I am so sorry for your loss, Martina. I hate that you have to be away from Simon, but I think about how your family could probably use a good dose of Martina huggles. I can only give virtual ones, but please know I’m thinking of you.

    Second, my husband and I have been married 7 years, and together for 14 (we met back in college). In all that time, we’d probably been apart a weekend at most. But in 2007 he left for the US (we’re living in Manila) and stayed for TWO FREAKIN MONTHS. It nearly killed me, I swear. I agree with Martina–my husband is also my best friend, and well, in 2007, online chatting wasn’t as up to scruff as today. Plus, you know, no online chatting can ever compare to a real-life hug. ANYWAY, when he came back home I said NEVER AGAIN. If he was going to be away that long I was insisting I come along with him. So I can totally relate. I pray the week goes by fast!

    Lastly, I am so so SO geeked up to have found sunglasses on the exact 8-bit pixel frames like Simon’s sporting! I found it in a tiny kiosk in a mall over here, so hee! :) Happy birthday, Simon!

    (and I can’t wait for more details on the Clazzi interview. Love their stuff!)

  28. Happy birthday Simon! I hope it is as wonderful as possible!

    Martina, I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you can find closure and healing. May you celebrate his life instead of mourning him. And if you said don’t mention this in the video, please know I read and commented before I was able to watch. ( I can’t actually watch the video right now.

    I hope you survive, Simon. I know when I was away from my husband for any length of time, it is brutal. Luckily, that hasn’t happened in a while. My advice is keep busy and in contact whenever you can. Voice and video work the best.

    Also, if KMM isn’t uploaded until Tuesday U.S. time, we will understand. And might possibly survive.

  29. Oh and Simon Happy Birthday! My Birthday was the 17th. Do Koreans follow the zodiac sign? I don’t believe in
    it but I was just wondering, since the 20th is on the cusp, are you a Capricorn or an Aquarian?

    Sad song to listen to is ‘A Private’s Letter’. Here is a Junsu version of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JGBd69BLRk&feature=youtu.be

    It’s about going to do military service, so not exactly the same as being without your wife for a week, but it’s a great sad song to listen to.

    and Happy Birthday Simon!

  32. Martina I am soooo sorry for your loss! I know I can offer you no comfort with my words but you are in my thoughts and I hope being with your family will help lessen the pain! Take care!

    8 years ago
    • Yes, Martina, and now he’s in a better place, with no pain, just looking at you all and being thankful for the people who loved him in this life :)
      Now it’s about giving yourself time and you’ll day-by-day feel better :)

      8 years ago
  33. Why not let the interns try something while Martina’s away, to let Simon get out his sad faces off camera, or maybe a little change/project video while she’s away sorting her stuff, instead of the regular schedule~ :P It’ll be your week of independence Simon! You can eat whatever you want for dinner, hog all of Meemers and Spudgies snuggles and take melancholic walks alone in the snow reading a book of poetry. It’ll feel all deep and shizz ;) Now time for some noms and snuggle up on my sofa watching some EYK XD

  34. Happy birthday, Simon! ^_^ At least you’ll have Spudgy and Meemers while Martina is gone…

  35. Happy Birthday Simon!

    January 20 that’s my birthday too which is in a few hours! I think we’re born the same year too if I’m not mistaken. It’s 1983..so I’ll be turning 30… yeah that old T.T.

  36. The “Finger Touches of Love” thing is when two people wiggle their fingers together (Similar to Spirit Fingers, but towned down). You normally do this when you’re a certain distance apart from each other. Say you’re sitting together, but someone is sitting in between you guys, then it would be the perfect time to show you love each other by doing a FTL. Me and my sister do it in the car when one of us is in the front sear while the other is in the back. And when we’re on our bunk beds right before we go to sleep.
    It’s just a way of saying “I Love You” to the other person. It is in no way NASTY.
    P.S. Today is my Birthday. 1/19/96 is my birthdate.

    Aaaaah I really wanted to see this live.. it makes me so grumpy !

    Isaw yesterday that you were goinig to have another livechat at 8pm korean time so I counted when i had to go on youtube to see it live but my proxtube didn’t work so I couldn’t unlock it. I live in Germany so I have to unlock the video with proxtube zo see it live. I uninstalled proxtube and reinstalled it and i refreshed the page like a million times but it still didn’t work. Iwas sitting infront of my computer, your livechat was right on the of my youtubefrontpage, I could see that you were recording live and I could see how many were watching.. I really felt like going crazy !!! -.-
    Sorry for complaining, I know it’s nothing you can change :) I’m gonna calm down now and watch your live chat.

    Great news about the interview! I like Clazziqai Project’s music a lot so I’m really excited about it. :D

    • Leo

      I use firefox and until now proxtube always worked fine. I already uninstalled it and downloaded the version they have on their website but it still doesn’t work. :(
      isn’t the one on their website the newest version because I thought so..

      8 years ago
      • Hmm strange o_O.

        Maybe you should try it with google chrome. The latest version of Proxtube for chrome is 1.2.0

        I tried it with other proxyplugins like stealthy and youtubeunblocker too but they didn’t work at all (chrome). Proxtube seems to be the only thing that’s really working.

      I read my comment again after watching the livechat and oh my god I made so many typing mistakes -.-
      Sorry about that I normally read things twice before I post them :)

      Martina I think the glasses you bought look super cool and I like the colour of your new couch :)

      And Simon: HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!! :D

  39. Eeeeer, I’ve watched this but I still haven’t understand where we can tweet so that you can read it during the livechat… Please, help me and I’ll be ready for the next :D

    • Send us a tweet @eatyourkimchi during the livechat. The Twitter posts work better than YouTube comments at the moment, which are just too fast and go by in a blur. We try to read the YouTube ones, but it’s not as easy as reading the Twitter ones :D

      8 years ago
      • OMG… it was THAT easy T___T I thought we needed something like “#ThisIsAHashtagForEatYourKimchiBecauseTheyAreTheBestAndILoveThemAndIWantThemToSeeThisTweet” but in fact, it’s much more simple ^__________^
        Thank you!
