Simon and Martina are a couple who became famous with their Korean and Japanese vlogs and informational videos. Recently they moved back to Canada and are getting a divorce after 15 years of marriage. The drama is spilling into their social media, they are both engaging in petty behavior, the fans are getting involved… it's getting messy.

- Simon has become some kind of minimalist/yoga/new age guru and got himself a dog named Fudgy.
- Martina is left alone in Japan to sort out their apartment. She moved back to Canada with Meemers.
- Simon made a IG live with another woman. Speculation about the nature of their relationship and whether Simon was cheating.
- Simon went to a vacation in Hawaii during the pandemic and Martina called him out.
- Simon is shilling a website that looks like a scam.
- Simon deletes Martina's comments criticizing him and blocks fans who defend her.
- Martina has announced that she plans to move back to Japan and leave Meemers with her mom.
- Simon uploaded a video in their EYK channel to address the rumors.

My ex used to love watching EYK but Simon always gave me bad vibes, they both love the attention too much but he skeeves me out for some reason. Glad to know my radar is still working but what a horrible situation for Martina. Naming your dog after a dead dog your ex-wife had is such a cunty thing to do. From the sounds of it he shouldn't have any animals at all. I hope Martina fleeces him for a shitload of cash in the divorce.

This video is golden.

- Doesn't want anyone to be blamed, but blames Martina's niece for interacting with the cat.
- "Martina is just angry and needs time to heal". "Why didn't she heal like me?"
- Ironically looks out of it during the entire video, and based on things HE has said about edibles, that might be how he's coping with his "healing".
- Keeps telling the community to stop being mean like it'll help.

It's weird that he wants to keep Hawaii private. If he did take COVID tests three times like he claimed, then saying he went to Hawaii should be fine. It only seemed to be a thing of contention since it was used against him.

I dunno if the narcissism claims are true, but based on the old info from their assistants back at the EYK Studios (I forgot their names after so long) it wouldn't shock me. However, I wouldn't say Martina is scott-free either, I imagine both could be difficult to work with or live with under the right circumstances.

Ever since the divorce Simon has been… weird. In videos he used to display joy, but maybe it was all fake, I dunno. The way he talks to the audience in the video makes it feel like he's talking to a child, if he did this to Martina, I'd be pissy, too.

I doubt the video will remain up once Martina sees it, but she seems more vocal so maybe she'll just make her own.

No. 1328108

No biggie, but it makes Simon leaving early way shittier if Martina's ED is as bad as it seems in some videos. It's not like they didn't have any things, so trying to move them or what have you would have really sucked.

>the advice that the vet has given Martina is wrong bc my google search has said something else!

>having a child over once is clearly more stress on a cat than having 2 dogs around every day!
>I can only meditate on remote beaches on Hawaii even though tbr locals were begging tourists to stay tf home

This is just 20 minutes of gaslighting and narc rage over her not handing over the cat because that and channel are the only things still linking them and the only things he can control her with.

Also tinfoil but I feel like this "mmm" sound he does after every fucking sentence is to regulate his breathy zen voice and keep himself sounding affected and believable kek
It's distracting how many times he does it and he can't put that on him speaking freely either because he obviously copy pasted his script into the ccs because they partially say something completely different than he does.

I think it's important to note that so far the drama has stayed on Instagram and reddit which have much smaller audience than their channel.
Martina has been only uploading upbeat videos unrelated to the breakup, very similar to their past content but Simon's videos are usually related to the breakup. He's now escalating the situation by releasing this to much broader audience. He might be milking this because his drama videos get more views and interaction.

No. 1328163

Jumping on this to also note that the video is monetized.

I think it’s good that Martina is distancing herself from the situation. Better to have Simon be the thing that ruined their channel and not her. I hope people learn that this is why you don’t do projects with your partner and keep it separate from the get go.

No. 1328635

A lot of Martina's comments come off as narc sperging. She absolutely hates if people are neutral towards Simon and she's trying to make him a monster. Which doesn't help since Simon is trying to manipulate everyone by being passive so when it all blows up he can just show her to be an aggressor.

This is so fucking milky since they feed into each other's narcissism. It's amazing that they even managed to stay married this long

No. 1328687

No. 1328778

The comments on Simon's shitty video are interesting, I advise people scroll and read some. Variants of:
>Retire this channel, leave as an archive
>I've been watching for ten years but am now unsubbing
>Get your own channel, Simon
>This was extremely difficult to watch
>You remind me of my narcissist mother
>You are manipulative
>Martina's content is similar to the old content so I will sub her, not interested in Simon
>This is jarring to see someone so different from the man we watched for a decade

I don't think this video is going well for him. His lengthy video description seems like a teenager's blogpost, wildly unprofessional. He should let go of the account since he clearly does not know how to make engaging content on his own, whereas Martina's solo videos have high approval in the comments. Even the "drama" angle is not working for him since nobody wants to see a half-dead looking scrote like him deliver the tea, drama channels are usually hosted by attractive, appealing people who you might actually want to talk to irl.

Gonna unsage since the first few pages of snow are filled with necro threadbumps and I don't think people know about this new thread (I only saw it in the catalog looking for another thread)

Martina has posted her official final post in their EYK Instagram account.

I have seen some theories that Simon's video was a way to force Martina out of their shared accounts or to sabotage her efforts to get sponsorships in order to return to Japan. I don't know if he as Machiavellian as they are painting him to be but there is definitely something off about him. I don't buy his carefree/mindfulness persona at all. The Tesla, purebred dog, Hawaii trip and total disregard for Meemer's health are huge contradictions for what he is preaching nowadays.

Simon is insane, but jesus christ Martina is a salty bitch. She keeps saying she doesn't want to stir the drama but she also keeps hinting that she is a victim and that Simon is a mean narcisist.

I also remember some video where Martina had to travel to Canada while Simon did Music Mondays alone and he was like "oh I miss Martina so much" and it was like a week the most that she was away. From that time I thought there was something weird going on plus him saying Martina was his only friend or something

No. 1328927

Apparently the captions of this video >>1328041 don't match with what Simon is saying, so redditors (https://www.reddit.com/r/simonmartina/comments/pqsf24/some_of_these_captions_flashed_by_so_fast_i_had/) are speculating that he was relying on a script and then used it for the subtitles. Later when he was editing the video, he forgot to update the subtitles. What he cut out:

>Martina has no right to keep it online. What if posted something private about her life and how she relates to the world?

This one sounds like a threat to me.

>I have seen some people fishing for evidence of my being evil through old videos. "Remember when he brought Martina coffee and it got cold? Proof that he was shitty all along! Remember that time he stole food on camera? This is how Simon must have been off camera too!" Movies do a good job of fostering this kind of smoking gun mentality: when bad guy is revealed, and it's a surprise, then the movie gives you a flashback that shows you the signs that you missed early on in the movie. "See! The evidence is all there, in the background!" People aren’t that simple, though. Movies are unrealistic depictions of human interaction, and some people use these depictions as frameworks for their own relationships. Yes, I have caused harm on my life, so has Martina, so have you.

i mean…. he has a point though? dont get me wrong he's a massive cunt, but I don't think in a moustache twirling, evil way, just a regular boring dickhead. The way people are fishing for the most inane reasons to call him an abuser, from the way he names his pets (Fudgy, but also Petra is called like that because she used to be "petrified" for being too scared) to how he acted in obviously fake skits (lmao i remember one where they tried a lie detector that shocks you when you tell a lie, and they proudly proclaimed they never smoked a joint in their life… and now they're both giant potheads. I'm surely that had nothing to do with the fact that Korea is VIOLENTLY anti drug).
I'm sure he's shitty, she's being shitty too, divorce does that to people

No. 1328953

meh, shitty argument nonny.

I always found it interesting that Simon was willing to follow Martina blindly through everything. Their channel was mainly build up around Martina's interests, kpop and weeb shit, they moved to Japan because Martina wanted to and when her health went downwards all their content was about Martina's struggles and her #buildaladder self-help bs, and Simon was just supposed to be there as her helper.

My tinfoil is that Simon wanted the divorce because he probably hated that their lives revolved around Martina's health, which in turn made her angry and now she believes he's a narcissist because from the outside, leaving your sick spouse for your own sake is a shitty (but common) thing to do.

She keeps sneakily leaving breadcrumbs about how abuse Simon was to her through all of the relationships while preaching that she doesn't want drama. It's been like two months since she declared that she would be leaving the EYK account because it was unsafe for her, yet she didn't leave until today (and we don't even know if she's going to be able to stay out of the EYK ig yet).

This isn't really about taking sides from my perspectives, they're both cows going through a very messy, public divorce both fighting to be the bigger victim.

The name of the dog might be a silly criticism but there is also his odd comment about finally having a healthy dog, which feels like a jab at Spudgy. Then Simon tried to infiltrate Martina's discord (I don't believe for a second that it was an accident), mass deleted comments supporting Martina and announced a new project with his suspected girlfriend on his wedding anniversary. Like you, I am not sure if he is a evil abuser, but at the very least he is a petty asshole. It's hilarious that he is claiming to be healed and into mindfulness.

No. 1329000

Isn't that what Simon is doing to Aliana too? I have the feeling that he doesn't have an identity of his own and just absorbs the personality of the people around him. The peaceful hippie shit is more Aliana's thing.

My tinfoil is that Simon was having a long distance relationship on Martina with Aliana when he was in Japan. Martina found out and kicked him out. Simon came back to Canada to be closer to Aliana and Martina was left alone to take care of the house and Meemers.

No. 1329003

i dunno, that's just speculation. He repeatedly said that they're not dating. Now, this wouldnt be the first time a man has ever lied, but considering how woman-scorned martina has acted these past few months, i can't believe she wouldn't let slip a very juicy "girlfriend" comment towards Aliana.

I think the reality is way more boring: when they were young and full of energy, they could cope with Martina limited mobility, now that they're older and her illness makes her (self-admittedly) more and more of an asshole on her bad days, he decided to peace out. I mean, if i were her i would started resenting the FUCK out of him, what were all those declarations of eternal love even for then?

yeah, it sounds like a terrible plan. Also, Japan has severly underestimated Covid (both because of right-wing incompetence and needing to downplay it for the Olympics) and the general public is not super stoked about having tourists back in.

i am really curious about how she has money to go back and live in japan in the first place. like where is this money coming from?? is it the donations fans gave in the past? like i just dont get how she can afford that and i wonder if its good for her to be on her own with her condition worsening (afaik)

No. 1329108

I still wonder about the 100k they crowdfunded to get the studio in Korea. They only had the studio for a year or so, and you can still see on the indigogo they made that 40k was supposed to go towards a deposit for a studio, meaning that's money they most likely got back when they left for Japan.

What makes you think it was all Martina's idea and he just tagged along? He has a mind and mouth of his own, I find it more plausible he just shared her interests as you often start liking what your partner does when they are passionate about it and he probably wanted to move too. I mean even if you're not a weeb, living in Japan and Korea sounds exciting for most people. You're making him out to be a total poor victim like she was holding a gun to his head kek

No. 1329306

She’s probably made quite a bit of money off of all her King Kogi merch. Her videos in Canada all had quite high views and seemed well received, and she has a ton of fans still so she is still making bank even without living in weebland.

I’m curious to know how she’s going to make this move to japan though - seems hasty to make that announcement when the country is still closed to tourists, and also, she might become physically disabled in the future. She also probably doesn’t speak much Japanese.

lmao, no he is definitely not a victim in this and that wasn't my point. I'm sure she wasn't forcing him to do anything. I'm just tinfoiling that Martina might be angry he left her because he didn't want to do the things they had in common anymore and it's very clear that Martina still wants to do them.

My point was more geared towards how everyone is eating up Martina's victim schtick and how she doesn't want to create drama even though she has no problem flinging implicating terms at Simon such as claiming that he is "grooming" the audience (>>1238153). I also think she probably knew that fans would quickly find out that she is following narc-victim IGs and her comments on youtube videos. I think she is vindictive and feels fine about their entire fanbase playing armchair-psychologists who just KNOWS Simon is an abuser because their mom was mean to them 10 years ago.

He's shitty for monetizing their problems on YT but she's just as shitty for baiting fans while claiming to stay drama-free.

I don't think their crimes are equal, Martina is still making content people want to see where Simon is being a self indulgent idiot blogging his feelings in Youtube videos. All Martina has posted were pointed comments mostly about pet health.

Simon knows people don't want to watch him and instead posts pictures of pets both on Instagram, in video thumbnails to try and soften the blow.
It's very clear 100% of the content people enjoyed came from Martina, and Simon was tagging along, obviously not forced by the chronically ill woman, but it makes it more stark to see when they consciously uncouple and Martina stays the same where he's a bitter husk.

It makes it very clear how much of what people enjoyed came from Simon, which is approximately 0.
I actually think Martina split with him rather than the other way around, he probably became too controlling or demanding based on his current crazy behavior and she cut him off.

Samefag, I went on a tangent there, but the point I was trying to make was that Simon is not doing anything for the community he's built, just being a self indulgent twat, whereas Martina is continuing to make content people enjoy seeing, so purely from a viewer perspective Martina is the better person for being considerate of her viewers, unlike whatever the fuck picrel is.

>When Martina went to Canada to visit her family because her dad was sick and dying, Simon made a whole video about how he couldn’t function without her, when he picked her up at the airport the focus of his video was on how he was so lost without her and how he had missed her so much never mind to the fact that Martina was going through something much much bigger, he stole the show and you can see from her face in that video that she’s tired of it.

It always seemed like Martina did most of the work. I had assumed that Simon worked on filming, but she made music, graphics, and did editing.

I'm unaware who did website maintenance and other stuff, but I've always got the vibe that Simon was her assistant.

No. 1329969

I remember back in the day people would always say they got bad vibes from Simon and said he probably got off on being Martina's "caretaker" and feeling like a saviour, I always dismissed it as a very casual fan but now I think they were right

No. 1330014

Simon needed to help her up the stairs a few years ago, some days she can't get out of bed. She needs to wear special gear sometimes. It's pretty far, if she lived by herself she'd be risking it.

No. 1330023

Honestly if she goes back to Japan she needs to get an apartment, not a home with stairs. That was the stupidest thing to me. Yes they probably wanted privacy after living in an apartment for so long, but it seemed like a stupid as fuck choice considering Martina's disability.

I always got the impression that they were both overstating the extent of Martina's disability. Nothing brings in the sympathybux like pity.

Real talk, but maybe she has a support system there now? She sounded close with her neighbors and potentially met other people in the area. I do remember them hosting a YouTuber party that some other Japan vloggers filmed at.

No. 1330166

I guess, but being friendly with your neighbours isn’t really on the same level as having someone there to help you do basic everyday things like get yourself out of bed. Those are things that your partner or paid carer would do, not your neighbours or random youtuber friends.

This is the video of their reunion in the airport (2:18) referenced >>1329826. Martina even says
>He's having a really hard time. I'm the one who suffered in Canada and he's having a snotty…

Apparently Simon also had a Twitter breakdown and sent her text messages about feeling lonely during Martina's trip. Imagine trying to come to terms with your sick parent dying while your husband is complaining about mundane stuff and making it all about himself.

No. 1330855

Martina formally announces King Kogi on the official EYK youtube. Makes no mention of Simon’s Meemers video but does throw in a mention of her and Simon going through difficult times. She also announces she will be going back to Japan and ends the video with her on the airplane going to Japan and the last soundbite is of a train announcement and text that says “new adventures begin” and “I’m back in Japan!” She says she will continue posting to the EYK channel but most efforts will be put towards the King Kogi channel.

sorry but martina’s king kogi art is super tacky and mediocre. i can’t believe she’s selling such ugly designs and people are actually buying.

No. 1331015

I’m also not a fan of her aesthetic in general - reminds me of late 90s/early 00s imitation kawaii, or knockoff Chinese anime merch. She has a section on her king kogi website about her illustration “process”, and she talks about using 30+ layers to make her album covers and stuff. I can see how it appeals to her fans, but…it all looks like it was made in Paint, and not in a good way.

No. 1331037

i'm not a fan either but i think i could see those designs in like the tshirt section in an h&m, those type of fast fashion designs that are just meant to be eye catching but not a whole brand. Regardless i do wish her the best, even though i can't imagine her shtick being that lucrative, i guess we'll see.

Might have meant that she returned home cause of COVID, her parents, and the divorce and was always planning to go back. So she kept up with visa paperwork and the like, unsure.

Though it'd been said their house has been sold, is that confirmed?

No. 1331200

Her aesthetic hasn't really changed at all and its going to prevent her from getting fresh followers. For ppl who watched eyk for a long time it's nostalgic, but new viewers are just going to see an older lady trying her hand at kawaii and failing.

Do do you mean the house they lived in in Kichijoji? Pretty sure they only rented that space. They talk about renting a home in this vid. Unless you mean in CA then I'll kindly shut up. I don't know much of their life from Canada.

No. 1331232

Meh i feel like if martina goes back the restaurants/food stuff videos again she'll do alright. Their restaurants videos (like the boujee japanese restaurants) were doing pretty well, like 500k each. Since it's now known that Martina did all the editing and video work, essentially she knows what to do - I think she'll bounce back fine. I wouldn't be surprised if she popped on Trash Taste sometime as well

No. 1331243

hope so, i love to see women thrive.

I hope simon wasnt such a big part of the equation that she can't succeed on her own: i feel like a lot of the EYK appeal was precisely that they were a happy married couple living their best child-free weeby life. That's aspirational for a lot of us arrested-development neets lol

This is an old comment I saw posted on their subreddit (I believe under the ig post when she first announced she was going back to Japan) and yes, it looks like she kept up with her visa paperwork and the renewal has been approved so that's how she's gotten back in.

I am curious what Simon might do in retaliation. At this point it's just fun to poke at Simon and see what "woe is me" garbage he is going to do in response to Martina. I hope she thrives so we'll see his meltdowns get worse and worse. Even if her content fails to attract new viewers, it's not like Simon is going to get any with his yoga bullshit (could barely pull from his existing audience).

oh word though, now that i think about this, if she was in quarantine for the past two weeks it makes sense she was posting that much shit on her ex, she was bored out of her mind and probably ruminating in red hot rage over that hippy wannabe destroying her source of income… sorry i mean BELOVED COMMUNITY lmao

Martina shouldn’t have given Simon access to the EYK account after the divorce. Yeah he was on it but she did most of the labour.

They probably didn't sign a prenup so the EYK business got split 50/50. Even if she did most of the labor he can argue that he did work too that didn't end up in the video but still contributed to the business. He appears in nearly all of the videos so it'd be extremely messy if one tried to take 100% control of it.

No. 1331331

you don't know that, it's a she said - he said at this point. It wasn't her channel, it was of the both of them. Simon still did work on the channel, even if it was just being """"the talent"""

It doesn't seem like farmers are going to get the milky spectacle they were hoping for from this whole debacle. I'm also not sure what people are upset with Simon for yet. I get poking at him, but he's a man. Nobody cares what he has to say, it will always be dissected until he's the one to blame, yet he's barely snowflake worthy (since he usually stays off of sm). The desperation to make some middle-aged man a "cow" just because of a breakup is pathetic (like most man-haters).

S/n - and her fans can nitpick their old content if they want, but they had no problem with that content before. It's fine and good with these couple channels until they break up, then all of sudden people have a problem with their old videos (not to mention the couple themselves). Too late for that though because they already made that money, so this stupid saga will basically just be full of spilled "milk". O well.

No. 1331435

I think most ppl just want a shot glass of milk and to see how an old nostalgic channel crashes down. And yeah if Martina does stick to her greyrocking method then there will be no more milk once Simon stops sperging and moves into another host.

Considering how much of a narc Simon is, and self admitted, I foresee him continuing to post on the EYK channel instead of making his own. Hell I think he’d post “‘meet my gf!” “Marrying the love of my life!” “Wedding 2021” kind of shit in attempt to spite his ex lol

All to an audience that fucking hates him lmao i wonder if he'll forever do a dance of turning comments on and off? What he's doing makes zero sense too, I can't believe he has zero self awareness that people hate him and he's trying to market to an audience that have zero interest in his content. But he has to know, he obviously stalks the subreddit, since screenshotted reddit comments for his video, and probably here soon too. Unless the reason he won't start his own ig is because he's embarrassed that martina already got a nice head start. His situation is so bizarre and i'm starting to feel bad for him

I imagine if you like EYK for what it was, you'd gravitate towards Martina who still has that essence.

Dude just needs get off the eyk ig/youtube, start over and make his own accounts, and move on.

No. 1331963

this is it, EYK was quirky Asian shit to start with, and yoga is not quirky enough to interest their old fans. I think both of them came out of this divorce looking like shitheads, but the fanbase of weeb girls with munchie tendencies obviously feels slighted by Simon. He's an asshole but the "any behavior I don't like = covert narc" narrative is annoying too. Maybe I'm all wrong but I think it seems pretty obvious that Simon dumped her because he thought he could do better all of a sudden (that hairline screams midlife crisis) and Martina is very bitter. Her bitterness is righteous because dropping your wife of over a decade because you suddenly wanted more out of life is a shitty thing to do BUT I doubt he's abusive.

All the stuff with the cat is so pathetic too. I think Martina absolutely is using the cat as a 'weapon' against Simon. Not that it matters. this was one ugly, retarded divorce.

No. 1331965

They are both wrong. Simon made a post about mourning for the loss of Meemers as if the cat was dead, tried to get into Martina's discord to spy her, blames a girl petting the cat as the reason for Meemers' stress while he has two rambunctious dogs, mass deleted comments and blocked fans who were supporting Martina and announced his podcast with the suspected girlfriend on his wedding anniversary.

No. 1331968

She has been making it sound worse lately. Loads of closeup snotty nosed crying pictures and trips to various doctors. It gives off a real vibe, like you said, overstating. Not full faking it but if she truly couldn't get out of bed some days she's either mentally deranged to think about living in Japan again or stretching the truth.

No. 1331974

samefagging to say what are you talking about? If Simon quarantined for two weeks holed up by himself in some beach house then returned to Canada and followed protocols by quarantining at his house…how is it different than what Martina did? It is hypocritical if you assume both of them followed "the rules".

No. 1331978

Yeah, she was so torn up about the cat that she just dumped him with her mom and fucked off to the other side of the world kek.
Also i guess his crystals weren't INCREDIBLY DEADLY!!! when SHE wanted to move him from kr to jp and the from jp to can.
Like.. if the cat managed to sustain 2 international flights, im sure living with dogs he came to know and sleep with was fine.
This is 100% both of them being petty af, cmon… She believed simon would give him covid. Animals can get covid, yes, but it's so extremely rare in house pets that it was clearly just a way to hurt him.
And i don't care about Simon, he sucks, but she's for sure one crazy bitch, you can tell from the way she responded to people criticizing them even before this mess. She was super aggressive

i think simon is having a midlife crisis as well lmao. If I remember right, he admitted in some video that he adopts the behavior/likes/hobbies of his partner as to his own? Like no personality of his own. People on their sub are thinking he started to have at least an emotional affair with that yoga girl during the pandemic, hence moving back to canada and instantly 'hanging out' with her. I dunno if they went to hawaii together or not. But I feel like what happened was a Martinazied Simon transform into pseudoscience Alianazied Simon lol(learn2sage)

You either have a penis or you're very lost. It's not manhate, look at his pathetic videos and posts, and then read all the comments followers left, 99% of which are unenthused with him - despite being fans for years or even a decade.
Pointing out a shitty man (or woman) is shitty is not a gendered attack when they're shitty? Crawl back in your hole.

I wouldn’t say either of them are milky enough for a thread, even though both of them flung shit at each other during the breakup.

Simon’s going to squat in the EYK channel posting passive aggressive videos about his new gf and yoga and crystals that nobody wants to see, and martina is back in Japan with her ugly art and all of their former contacts, and hopefully she will make a go of it, EDS or not - she’s an adult, she knows what she’s doing.

Actually the time Simon went was when Hawaii said Canadians don’t have to quarantine upon arrival.

She may have said it herself, but it was Martina’s videos that retained the EYK aesthetic and content, Martina who maintained contact/relationships with the collaborators in Japan and elsewhere, and also Martina who ultimately moved back to Japan to continue her youtuber work while Simon is busy sad posting on a dead account about jade eggs or whatever, lol.

No. 1332027

were they criticized a lot? i know k-pop stans tried to get immigration on their asses, but i assumed it was white americans pissed off that they didn't like a song or whatever, and on the japanese side i only came across an english japanese neet who's clearly autistic who did a video trashing them with very low views, Martina replied super pissed off telling basically to sit down young child (you know, Graceful Queen Martina, always knowing how to act online lololol) and he immediately backed off with his tail between his legs.

Were they criticized more? I saw on the subreddit at the start of this mess people were pissed that they weren't partecipating in the stop asian hate hashtag, she replied being "I HAVE MY OWN SHIT TO DEAL WITH!!" and then made a post about it. I would have been great to see Simon see that, cus he would have immediately crucified over it lol, like his poor co-host got crucified over doing yoga.

Thanks for posting these anon. I think Simon just needs to permanently leave the social media sphere. I don't think you can be an influencer and not have some sort of parasocial relationship form with fans, I think that's just an unfortunate part of being an influencer and any influencer who says they don't want to foster parasocial relationships (to make things more "authentic") is a filthy liar. You cannot exist as someone with a platform who engages with fans and not have this relationship form in one way or another.

As for the boundaries he's set, I think he's much better off going private. As a small public figure, being criticized on your page/on any of your spaces, is to be expected. He's not a private citizen with the right to demand/expect respect/kindness as long as he chooses to post on the EYK ig, a business ig with over 200k followers. He's not the first or last person on the internet to have shit flung at him, and should know by now the only solution would be to leave.

Yeah, anon, because it totally doesn't irritate east asians when random white people show up to live in their country and observe every daily interaction of their lives like a fat kid watching ants under a magnifying glass or the sped niece from finding nemo. Then, to add insult to injury, make money from doing so all while treating coffee vending machine flavors like some futurama concept.

Have you ever lived overseas? Because people do talk shit and in collectivist societies, your boorishness gets you alienated.

This. Let's be real: Some cows haven't done shit in ages beyond overly shooped selfies and self righteous posts and they still have ongoing threads that other anons fight tooth and nail to keep going. See: Moo and Lori. Even Shat's doing her groundhog day bullshit again.

I lost interest in them as “content creators” because Simon was weird and Martina got a bit grating - but during all this recent crap Martina isn’t super milky, just seems like normal going through it, and Simon got really creepy, like cult leader creepy and the comments he’s made are waving huge flags.
Some of the real milk is the comments on the EYK Instagram, holy shit people are nuts, I think I took screenshots but damn, it wasn’t even people being in a Simon versus Martina type of thing just cringe.

Is it just me or is Simon starting to look a bit like Brian Laundrie? If I was his girlfriend, and he started building a van to get deeper into his new-age bullshit, I would run to the hills.

All jokes aside, I feel like Simon is going this new-age hippy route cause he has no idea who he truly is. Typical midlife crisis coping. He might have been a bit of a Koreaboo/Weeb, who enjoyed a little anime or Kpop on the side, but I am sure Martina was the one who was truly obsessed and was the one who decided to build a career around her koreaboo/weeb obsession. That's where I believe some of the animosity from Martina comes. Simon is still using their main channel (as well) to post his own videos, which are pretty much just him vlogging and trying to explain his side of the story AKA little to no effort. There is a chance that Martina did most of the thinking behind EYK and that Simon mostly just went with the flow and reaped the benefits. One earlier comment basically mentioned how Martina built Simon up and he was lucky to be along for the ride and now I see that being a possibility. If he's truly the narc Martina says he is, then I could definitely see him leech off her. I remember a video back in the day where he went on about how he wanted to do anything to be healthy and not injure himself, otherwise, he would be a huge hassle to the people around him, which felt like a microaggression. He probably tried to appear indisposable, him pointing out that he wanted to be fitter to help her as part of that too. He probably knew his days in that relationship were numbered and actually had to make an effort, but in the end, it was all about himself, not Martina.

Coming back to Simon's identity crisis, he seems to have no idea who he truly is. I don't know if it's because he tends to leech onto people and make their personality and hobbies his (like with Martina and his new gf), him being a huge closet case(Dothraki man warrior huh huh) or just a no-use narcissist scrote, but there seems to be a certain empty-shell element to him. Almost feel sorry for him, cause he is still trying to give us the ol' innocent Simon man-child vibes, while at the same time the facade is slipping and cracks are starting to appear on the surface. I feel both Martina and Simona should have left this drama outside of the internet, cause both have been childish as hell, but since they've started it, they now have to find a way to end it in an effective manner and resume their Youtube careers. And this is where it gets interesting for me because the way both went about it shows who they truly were in their relationship as partners of a business. Especially the way Simon goes about it shows us who he truly is. It's obvious he's still trying to cling onto the wealth and fame that came with EYK, which makes sense cause it could be potentially good money. Unfortunately, he has no idea how to go about it. Martina has now shown us who he truly is, and him trying to repair the damage is showing us how miserable he is at managing his affairs. Thing is, Martina probably did all the PR and image control in the past and the dude has no idea how to go about it. He's like a lost boy who lost his mommy and is now upset that she told him to move out and stand on his own two feet, hence why he's trying to blame everything that's going on on her. She might have aired some dirty laundry, but he basically dug his own grave. At this point I don't care about Martina anymore. Simon is the one that i'd pop some popcorn for.(sage your blog)

No. 1333738

Simon has no YouTube career - everyone hates him and his videos, and EYK is looking like it was 99% martina anyway. He needs to just close the laptop and quit trying to defend himself to people who don’t wanna hear it. Agreed that he seems like a boring, empty shell of a person who just glommed onto someone with a bigger personality.

I’m undecided about martina - she’s definitely better off without him, and though I don’t care for her crappy Claire’s/H&M kids aesthetic and she was also a bitch in those YouTube/insta comments, I love that she’s getting out there and being herself and not giving a shit.

Eh. Fuck this weird forced apologist culture bullshit. I'm sure these comments are either from white people or Asian Americans who have never visited their "ancestral lands".

She lived in Asia for more than a decade and experienced more "Asian culture" than the weebs trying to force her to say some stupid shit that doesn't matter. Fuck that. It doesn't need to be said.

it does sound like a distressed meow, yes, but that can range from something serious to "my bowl is SLIGHTLY emptier than i'd like it to be, fill it IMMEDIATELY before i perish from hunger". A pained meow is usually much deeper in tone if that makes sense?

It just seems that instead of her really care for the animal she just wanted to be an ass against her ex, but i guess that's how divorces go.

What about Martina's mom's house is unfamiliar for Meemers? She has reported that Meemer's crystals are gone, so he's stress free in a home he's adjusted to.

>other than to uphold some kind of visa status potentially

This is probably why she returned. She says here >>1331286 that she has been in contact with Breaker, the company that most likely sponsored them moving from Korea to Japan, the whole time. She most likely returned to Japan as soon as she was allowed to to keep her visa status.

NTA but yes I do think it was just a way to get back at him, but I also can't help but feel like Martina had valid reasons to keep Meemers away from Simon given the urine crystals he was getting. Martina would look significantly more like an asshole if Meemers didn't have health issues and she was just keeping him to keep him.

have you seen her latest video? i swear it's japanophile in the worst way possible, like "omg you guys, japan is truly the land of the future, they have ERASABLE PENS!" meanwhile i used those exact pens in elementary school in the 90's… or maybe my own backward european country is actually from the future as well, who knows.

anyway very embarassing, i hope the old videos they made manage to keep them floating because damn, i don't see either of them surviving another year without proper content. Especially in a notoriously expensive city as tokyo

I'm not trying to WK Martina but her content being more boring could be due to her physical condition being worse. It's my understanding EDS gets worse with age, and as she's on her own now she is likely taking on more physical tasks in her day to day that perhaps I have no clue how much of a "caregiver" Simon ever really was at this point tbh Simon did years ago.

EDS tends to peak from puberty to menopause in women because hormones play a large role in joint laxity and therefore pain. It gets worse in that the wear and tear builds up, but it's not degenerative in the same way some types of MS or Parkinsons are.

I did not have any idea about erasable pens because I live in Latinamerica and as usual I didn't knew about them so this comes from a place of priviledge without a doubt form you, so I'm happy she shares these stuff, mall food in Japan is different, soemtimes boring for some people but I really like to watch her videos while Im doing homework or at work because is a soothing feeling

He's a shell of who he used to be. His happiness now is so solemn sounding compared to how ecstatic he used to be. I honestly think someday he'll off himself. Just something about him now. Like hes trying to force everything despite knowing its all over. His video style kind of conveys that too. He has no idea who to market to. He isnt acting bubbly-why would he? He's lost almost his entire female fanbase (which is all he had) via ditching Martina. So hes not cute pandering to weeb girls, but he's not quite able to transition into pandering to men either. Breaking through with men is a lot harder as another guy. And I'm sorry, but no guy is gonna watch some bald mans vlog with cutesy cheery music playing as he talks about his dog and shows shots of his food like female vloggers do. He's just lost. Pathetic to see.

I thought the same at first but now her Instagram stories are filled with this shit. A few weeks of not being able to even sleep? Pretty unbelievable that you’d still be choosing to live in a country where you don’t speak the language by yourself if you’re in such pain you can’t even sleep, or cook, or sit and edit a video. Personally I think her and Simon were both happy to overstate the severity of her illness for views and sympathy. I don’t doubt she has EDS, I just question how bad it is given she made the choice to live in Japan by herself with no support, barely knowing the language.

Same stuff everyone was saying 6 months ago, when she first went out there - why do this when you’re sick, will only become more sick, and don’t speak the language?

I get it somewhat for Martina to continue posting content since their fan base overwhelming is on her side so she does have a slight ability to make money.

But Simon should just get out unless he has to post to their channel in order to keep getting that joint check. He can easily just do whatever since he is “healthy” physically compared to Martina.

To be honest I think that’s why he is still doing anything online. I wouldn’t be surprised if the main channel devolves into something really weird since they both would have to keep posting or something to keep getting money from it.

Sorry for ESL but Simon uploaded a new video to their shared channel about a book called All About Love and his own experience with love, apparently hes a polyfag now

>he realized he didnt know anything about love, set out on a spiritual journey to become better at it
>talks about developing self compassion, a more secure attachment style (later he complains about the romanticization of anxious attachment style in media), learning how to communicate in an efficient way which was apparently a game changer for him
>took a university class on psychology of relationships, learned about the chemical aspect of emotions and love
>makes a joke about studying love for two years instead of developing employable skills
>apparently is in a loving relationship atm
>idk what happened after the 16 min mark because I couldn't be bothered to finish it
>second part is on his own channel
>says he pretty much dropped all his friendships in favor of his relationship with Martina, stresses the importance of loving your friends and not focusing solely on your partner
>no different types of love (love for your friends, family vs romantic love), we just show it differently
>section on men lacking affection due to toxic masculinity and homophobia, was pleasantly surprised to see his korean students openly showing each other affection
>talks about polyamory, he tried it and although he still identifies as polyamorous he "doesnt have the time for multiple partners"
>invites people to talk about it on his discord channel
Also worth noting, according to the comments he posted both of these videos on the anniversary of Spudgy's death (Martina's IG confirms this, Simon hasn't posted about him which makes me wonder if he simply didn't realize? Seems like a big coincidence though so maybe I'm just naive).
He sounds happier and more like his old self. I hate polyfags but he doesn't seem too coomery about it, definitely doesn't help with the cult vibe though. I feel like he was extremely emotionally dependent on Martina during their relationship and going poly might be overcompensating for that.

It’s good she’s leaving the channel but I miss the pink/brown hair it suited her so well! Hope Simon just fucks off but unfortunately you can lose your YouTube sheckles if you don’t upload every 6 months so we should see a new video from him soon.
Speaking of Martina she’s announced a Tokyo tours interactive map fans can pay for. I think this is a great direction for her to take because going to Japan makes me nervous because idk what restaurants/neighborhoods would be good. It’s different than what other j-vloggers are doing because they mainly focus on places like novelty cafes etc. Hope her channel continues to grow because I love her tour videos!

No. 1732133

I don't think it's appealing to Simon as much as it is just trying to be the bigger person. I was on Martina's side for most of the ordeal and still am, but it definitely was not a good look to some fans the way she called out Simon. Of the few Simon asskissers who exist, a lot of them will point out that Martina was vindictive throughout the whole thing by being vocal about how upset she was by Simon's actions. I think she has made strides in her healing process from the divorce and does want to move away from this, and wants to do so without giving those fangirls any ammo to come at her with.

No. 1732144

>people were theorising that he found polyamory

I've been annoyed with the excessive Simon hate in the fallout of the divorce, but this massive cope of a video is making him sound retarded. He's basically trying to act like his spirituality and personal videos are a totally natural direction for a channel that has always been about experiencing things in Korea and later Japan with his ex-wife. Ever since Martina made her goodbye video his videos have been doing even worse than before, almost like all the active eyk subs just went over to King Kogi. He should just make his own channel.
Also just listening to him talk he sounds like he lost his mind after the divorce or something.

Idk i miss the drama days, they were both so childish in sucha funny and entertaining way.

Just. LEFT for japan leaving the damn cat to her mom.
I dunno it was hilarious. Oh and also simon was a fucking selfish moron for traveling to hawaii when hawaiian ppl were asking foreigners not to come, unlike martina, who went back to japan when Japanese ppl were asking foreigners not to come. That was funny as well
