WTF – Korean Arm Covers

April 20, 2011


Share Post

Ok, this was the first time that we had an epiphany while using one of our WTFs. At first we thought this was to cover your arm, so that your arms wouldn’t get darkened by the sun. This we found silly, because – well – if you want long sleeves why not go out in a long sleeve shirt? It’s not like the sleeves are particularly fashionable. Anyhow, it wasn’t until we started using these sleeves that we realized that they’re probably less meant for protecting your arms and more made for cooling them. Holy crap were these sleeves awesome for cooling your arms! Sure, they might not look cool, but they feel cool! Hell, why hasn’t someone made a full-body suit of this? Korean summers would be muuuch more tolerable if you covered yourself head-to-toe in this wristlet. Though, I’m sure people might stare at you a bit…FOR LOOKING SO COOL! Seriously though: we’re still not fully sure what these are for. Anyone? We just guessed that they were to protect your arms, but now we think they’re for cooling them. Does anyone have the official answer? We’d like to know.

Otherwise, WOOHOO! It’s time for another WTF giveaway! Last time we made the mistake of announcing the contest the week AFTER the first four weeks, so there was a bit of confusion. We’ll be doing these giveaways every 4 weeks, rather than every month, which means 13 giveaways a year instead of 12! Sweet! This giveaway is for the Twonkle Cup, Double Eyelid Tape, Ddung Products, and arm covers. All you have to do to enter to win is make your own Twonkle Twonkle Nursery Rhyme! Submit it in the comments here or via YouTube. There’s no line limit, but please don’t write an epic of a poem :D

On a side note, we’re not sure what happened, but within the past week we had something close to 20 emails asking about what camera we use. Why the influx? A lot of people starting film classes recently? Who knows. Anyway, if you’re one of the people who are wondering, this is our camera here. It’s not the best DSLR video camera out there (we’d go for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II if we could afford it), but for what we need to do this camera gets the job done. In fact, we list our full camera gear here, with all our filters and audio recorders and lenses and whatnot, if you’re geeky and interested as well.

    BIGBANG just blew up a car
    It made no sound, that’s really weird
    Worse than Taeyang with a beard
    Actually that might look hot
    BIGBANG always, no matter what ♥

  5. Twonkle, twonkle, little star
    In Korean there is no ‘R’.
    The wonder of a kimchi high
    Is better than a wise man’s sigh
    Twonkle, twonkle, little star
    Spudgy says mung, and Pirates say ARR!
    Though the manly men have brawn,
    They need arm hose to put on,
    So their arms can be alright,
    To twonkle, twonkle, all the night. (LIKE A MAN)
    Twonkle, twonkle, little star,
    All your base are in a jar!

    Spend your day out in the park
    Dancing with a great white shark;
    They would think you were a crow,
    If you did not twonkle so.
    Twonkle, twonkle little star,
    Now I’m going to a bar!

    I have seen you from afar
    When I think I’ve seen it all
    You come back from the mall
    With a new Treasure find
    I have kept an open mind
    but the finds are to great
    to miss a chance with this fate

    Being all like “har har harrrrrr”
    Seeing all those W. T. Fs.
    I’m so glad that I’m not deaf.

    Twonkle twonkle little star!
    Simon and Marti-ina.
    And that awesome spudgy too.
    You really should die his hai-air blue!
    Or maby something like bright red?
    So it matches his cutie bed~ C:

    To a 미국사람, cool

  14. Twonkle, twonkle, have you any twonks?
    Yes sir, yes sir, three twonks full.
    One for the master twonk, one for the maid twonk,
    And one for the little twonk who lives down the lane.

    Twonkle twonk sat on the wall
    Twonkle twonk had a great fall,
    All the important twonkles and all the twonks,
    Had to put twonkle twonk together again.

    3 twonks were living in a house,
    Daddy twonk, mummy twonk, baby twonk.
    Daddy twonk was big and twonkable,
    Mummy twonk slim and twonks,
    Baby twonk was really twonkering.
    Enjoyy :)
    And gl to everyonee

  21. On the side of the road vendors on the major highways you can buy all different colors and some with thumb holes too! I like to wear them as a punk-ish statement. Very cool.

    I think their just for the sun. The same with the Aguma visors and the towels everyone wears on their head. Or umbrellas (parasols) for the sun. I think it’s all lumped into the same category as “Why Korean people go swimming fully clothed”. Uh….. The do feel sexy though…. :)

    Twonkle, Twonkle Oh the sun,
    Shining down on everyone.
    Burns your arms, burns your face
    But don’t worry now
    Korean skin protection will help your case!
    Twonkle, Twonkle, Oh the sun
    My arms are so white!
    The last thing I need is sleeve-lets!!!!!

  32. Okay, what is the official name for those. I need a pair here in the Texas heat and when I am driving. One arm is always darker than the other and those arm covers would work better than a towel. And I am not creative enough to come up with a Twonkle Twonkle poem, so I will just by the arm covers :)
