The Ooh Euro Nasty Tour: On Stage!

November 21, 2014

Hello everyone!

We are now finished with the videos from our epic Eatyourkimchi Road Trip, and we’re ready to start publishing videos from our Ooh Euro Nasty Tour adventures, in which we went to Norway, Sweden, Germany, and the Netherlands. Over the next few weeks we’ll share our adventures around each country, show you some of the cool places we ate (we had some really cool FAPFAPs), show you the cool places we stayed in thanks to AirBNB, and just share the fun we had overall.

To start off our video series, here’s what our events were like! Whenever we tell people that we occasionally go on tour and do events, they ask us “so, what do you do on stage” to which we respond “I…have no idea.” It’s not like we have a musical talent and can perform anything. So we make due with what little we have: storytelling and silly games. More importantly, we also get the chance to chat with you guise, hang out for a bit, take some pictures, steal some hugs, and just see what your communities are like outside of Korea.

We so often feel like we’re just doing our own weird thing in our tiny bubble on the internet, and all of the people around us are either confused about what we do or they are just disinterested in the things we like, so meeting you all in person feels like we’re talking to our people. Seeing you out there, laughing along with us, listening to our stories, and playing on stage with us, is so overwhelmingly inspiring and motivational. The memories we make with you we keep with us for the rest of the year. Thank you all :D

Anyhow, more about this video: at some of the events we participated in, games were already arranged for us. In our event in Amsterdam, we didn’t have time to do our WTF challenges, but we had lots of fun doing the broken telephone Kpop rumour mill, and the charade murder mystery. Also, FUCKERFILLER! I’m sure that’s not how you spell it in Dutch, but it sounds like fucker filler. FUCKER FILLER! Best phrase we learned! We also learned stuff like “The owls are in the moss” from Norway, “Who shit in the blue cabinet” in Sweden, and “That’s sausage!” in Germany. I have to admit, we have been using DAS IS VOORST the most in our daily language now, though we do use the first two as well.

Really, though, one of the most amazing things we experience while on tour is just the chance to engage with other cultures. It’s what really drives us here in the studio: Korea is not our culture. It’s not where we’re from. We’re amazed by it in many ways, and want to share the cool things we find with you. But that’s not to say that Korea is the special-est place in the world. Every country we visited was brimming with excitement and new things. All of the stuff that people in Norway, Sweden, Germany, and the Netherlands take for granted, for us, is magical. We’re really inspired to live in Europe now. We’re gonna do a stint in Japan first, of course, because we’ve always wanted to, but after Japan, we’ll definitely be living in Europe and doing something there. We’re not sure what. But you’ve got a lot of magic there that we want to play with.

We also want to thank all of you lovely Nasties who brought us packages and letters. We didn’t get a chance to open them all on video, but we did take some pics of the stuff you sent us, as well as some pictures from the events. Woohoo!

Sadly, we didn’t get any pictures from our event in Sweden. It was a lot tighter of a schedule, and we spent more time getting dressed and fed and watered, and didn’t have enough time to wander and take some pictures. If you have any, we’d love to see them!

Over the next few weeks hopefully we’ll share some more of the wonder and magic that we felt. We’ve also got some extra scenes and pics that we’ll be putting up on our app, so check those out, too!

Thank you to Omona, Kpop Nonstop, Kpop Meetings Germany, and Hallyucon. You’re all lovely people. Thank you for organizing all these events, and thank you for giving us the chance to meet lovely Nasties around Europe. Hopefully next year, we’ll be able to see you all again, and maybe even some other countries, new countries as well? Finland maybe? England? Hmmm.

  1. This looks like so much fun! I actually am really glad you guys filmed this because I have often wondered what goes on at these things and been jealous of the people who attend your events – it always seemed so secretive! But now I have at least a vague idea and it was awesome! You guys totally bring your YT selves to the public which is great! I know (from how you talk about it) that you’re nervous but you play it off and laugh easily that you feel like family! I so look forward to seeing you guys in person one day!

  5. “It’s not like we have musical talent.”

    Guise guise! This is so obviously WRONG!

    All of the theme songs you’ve created and the parody songs you’ve done are ample proof you have lots of musical talent! I would love to see the EYK crew perform some of those tracks live. You definitely have the ability and talent. It would be awesome!

    • Hahaha. We performed “Eatyourkimchi Style” once live, in Mexico. It was a very surreal experience :D

  6. RANDOM Question!!! Have you ever think about writing a book on how to survive in other countries XD? ’cause, well you’ve been traveling a lot lately

    5 years ago
    • Actually, yes! It’s something I really want to do. We’ve even spoken with potential book publishers. I just want to find some time to do so. Not sure when, though. I was thinking about writing it this year, but we just opened the coffee shop recently, just launched the app last week, just started Speaker’s Corner as well, and I think we need to get into our rhythm with everything first before we start a new project, I think :D

    • I had a dream last night that I was starting our US tour in Vancouver, and when I tried to cross the border into the US they wouldn’t let me, because they’d have to keep my passport. So I stayed in Vancouver. It rained a lot.

  11. Wow! you are all so gracious and entertaining. It is a delight to watch!

  12. Ahh the memories. I think the best part is seeing how all kpopfans gather and have fun. all the inside jokes etc. And you guys are amazing hanging around being incredible sweet to everyone even those who are so nevous they can’t speak. Thank you for coming back to Norway, and it was great meeting Soozee and Leigh as well. They were as awesome as i imagined. now I look forward to your next video where it seems like we are going to see more of your experiences eating in different countries? ^^

  14. What was the song that Martina played at the very end of the video? I couldn’t catch what that Nasty was saying.

  15. I’m forever playing the footage of you guys coming on stage in Amsterdam, I was in the 4th row in the middle and Leigh literally pointed her camera at me but it’s so dark it’s difficult to find me!

    I wish we could have done the challenges with you, I’d be a volunteer for the ambiguous rain hat, panties and the kpop challenge… You can have my body for science!

    Simon mentioned wanting to come and live in Amsterdam and I’m pretty sure we were all stoked to hear that.. let’s hope it’ll come true, or at least I hope you’ll visit us another time so I can see you again. ^^

    Also.. it’s “vakkenvuller”. Fucker filler lmao.

    Thanks so much for a great evening EYK crew! <3 <3

  18. I’m at school, so I can’t watch the video yet. BUT I can say that it was so so wonderful to meet you in Norway . It really made me feel that in a strange way we are all friends, despite that we never talked face to face before.

  19. That would be awesome if you came to Finland. I’m your fan, but I haven’t actually found that many other fans — not to say there aren’t, I’m sure there are — because I don’t know if there is any Finnish Facebook groups for nasties or something like that. So if you came here, it would be an opportunity to meet you guys but also some other fans :)

    • Yes for Finland :D (a Finn here speaking [writing]) I also don’t know any Finnish fb group for EYK/Nasties, I only know about the European Nasties group and the Waves-region group. But I did find a group named “We want EYK to Finland~!”, here’s a link https://www.facebook.com/groups/563484693701241/ Let’s see if there’s anything going on in there ^_^

      • Thanks fellow Finnish fan! I’m gonna check that link too, if there’s something good going on! :)
