Someone asked for a thread, so let's bash on these two ugly fucking losers who think that they know everything about Korea.

No. 65756

I don't mind Marina, but her husband seems like the most immature asshole.

No. 65757

Marina is pretty bitchy and throws shade at Hyuna and other Korean girls like crazy. Not even a Koreaboo, but whenever a girl does that kind of shit period it's just disgusting.

Then again, looking the way that she does I'm not surprised that she would feel jealous. Gross hair, not a great body, Chiclets teeth and a pig like snout.

No. 65758

Really? for me it's actually the other way around. I can actually laugh at some of his jokes (I laugh at things that are not actually funny because of that fact). Martina regularly comes off as obnoxious and special snow flakey to me.

No. 65759

No. 65760

>special snowflakey

That's because she is. You can feel it in the videos and the site posts. Marina practically oozes that kind of bullshit from her pores.

You can tell that they're threatened by the idea of anyone else coming to Korea to do what they're doing (maybe even better than them), because they refuse to even give solid advice on how to run a gig like theirs from Korea, how to go about doing it, etc. It's like lol bitch, neither of you are anything special. You're two white kids in Korea who refuse to even become a part of this culture and regularly bash on Koreans for stupid shit like daring to make music in other languages.

No. 65761

>those ugly fucking tryhard LOL SO NRRRRRDYYYYY XDDDDDD tattoos

Jesus, take me now.

No. 65762

Her fucking bangs bother me. I'm so tired of seeing those Bettie Page bangs everywhere. They don't flatter every single girl. Your goddamned brows and hair should FRAME your face.


No. 65763

Ugh come one, Marina is a pretty name compared to Martina, it's insulting to call her anything than Martina

But yeah, the fact that they get so upset at people criticizing legitimate issues with what they say lets you know how entitled they feel to Korea. Like no one is telling them to stop making videos or to change their personalities (even though it would be an upgrade), but fuck realize why so many people have a problem with what you're saying.

The majority of their fanbase are young teens, I think, so they're going to completely overlook what they're saying and accept their personal experience as being applicable to the entire country. Koreaboos do this shit too because they want to believe the bs of two people who don't even attempt to acclimate to their environment.

They don't even make that many videos talking about issues in Korea, since they don't know much about it outside of kpop and street food, and people flock to them as though they were gurus.

It has to be because of how these koreaboos think 'well if they're willing to accept those two fuckers, I should do fine once I get there, since they're so wacky xD!!!'

and the way she dresses, I know tumblr tards love wearing mismatched shit to draw attention, but Martina takes it a step further

ffs she's 31, she's still in her teen phase. She did that #Dear Me vid talking to her teen self and mentioned how different she was from everyone back then, I think she identifies with that word. Not because it's true to her character, but because it's what she wants to be and goes the extra mile without jeopardizing her "career"

I always try to imagine her in Japan, which was always where she wanted to end up. I think that because of all the other youtubers there (i.e. Rachel and jun and others) her and Simon wouldn't have made it as big. So now b/c of youtube they just loooove Korea.

No. 65765

It's funny, looking through their Twitter mentions there seem to be two levels of Koreaboos.

The kind who love EYK and follow everything they say.
And the truly delusional types who hate EYK because they said some negative things about Korea and HOW DARE THEY CUZ KOREA IS PERFECT OMG

No. 65766

I seriously can't stand them trying to pronounce Korean, it actually hurts me.

My favorite thing about EYK is how they got their Koreaboo fanbase to buy them roundtrip flight tickets to Europe. I remember reading an article about how they didn't have real work visas in Korea after quitting their teaching job, and just left the country every 6 months to renew their Visa Waiver Program tourist visas. Now I'm not knocking that at all (it's how I lived with my boyfriend for 1 year+ without a proper visa), but they seriously got their delusional fans to pay for the most expensive and annoying part of staying in Korea on that visa. They even registered their business in Canada so they wouldn't be caught working in Korea without a visa (freelance work is a huge loophole when it comes to working on a visa.)

But now they managed to get TTMIK to open a cafe with them (which they are hardly at), so they probably finally got themselves a business visa. Hyunwoo and the TTMIK team does all of the advertising and visit pretty damn frequently, and I always see them when I go there.

No. 65769

Its sad, you hardly see them interacting with any Korean people that isn't Soo Zee, and even she hardly shows up in videos anymore. I don't think they truly care about Korea as much s they do with their fame that's associated with Korea.

They're doing everything they can to stay in Korea, with other people's efforts. They don't even mention the Cafe anymore. I hope that TTMIK are making most of the profit off of it.

No. 65770

I was in Korea when this launched and I really dgaf about EYK but my friends looooove them and wanted to go really badly……… I can't believe i waited 1hr+ under Seoul's summer sun for this…
what we don't do for friends tbh.
It's good that at least TTMIK are behind this, and I believe they are respectful.
But seriously my eyes almost fell of secondhand embarrassment when I saw an asian-american girl crying on the line to enter because Simon with an ugly-ass beard showed up there

No. 65771

No. 65773

When I took a trip to Korea, I really made it a point to go visit the cafe but I was really sad that they weren't there :( I really wanted to see Spudgy most of all tbh. Didn't they use to hold like weekly liveshows there? I didn't even notice that they stopped

I really only watch them for fapfaps and wanks, I can't care too much for their kpop videos or anything. I know they really support LiNK, but even LiNK is a bit questionable compared to other similar organizations.

Actually this is the second time I got to wait under a line for them because of my friends (you guys gonna think I'm lying but i'm just lonely and i don't have many friends), and the other time i froze inside of the building where they held that pop-up store of their overpriced and unfunny goodies ("I'M NOT UGLY, I'M EXOTIC!!11!!" kill me pls.. and these ear hats you can buy for $10 at Dongdaemun but they sold for $40 because it has some pink ribbon on it). Spudgy was there and that doggie is really qt and kinda friendly so it was the only thing worth it there. lmao I didn't saw it on the cafe tho

It's very much Tumblr.

I'm glad one of you asked for a thread or else I would have hesitated to make it. My friends adore these fuckers and any time I bring up legitimate criticism, I get told that I'm "negative".

No. 65783

Thanks mate ):
I seriously don't get how people think these guys are even funny… I remember when exo released 'what is love' and tumblr was filled with that "i lost my pants" cringey shit and I don't even know how this managed to happen…..
The two videos of them i watched were the one about NK bombing threats (kinda useful because most foreigners thought some crazy stuff was going on when it didn't) and one about what one should pack to Korea.
Besides this their videos mostly suck and I couldn't stand 1 minute on it

Or only $0.90 on Taobao, plus low shipping from China to Korea. I can't believe people pay so much for that crap.

Meh, it isn't too surprising. Just look at Wannablaze's eBay. She sells Daiso shit at jacked up prices, too. Weebs take advantage of other weebs knowing they'll gladly pay for anything from glorious Aznland.

Lol they do that shit with cosplay.

EYK comes up in the same conversations when we're casually mentioning Korean products or music or food.


No, not really. They're cringe.

I was just exclaiming that it didn't surprise me to see them doing such a thing. It's pretty shitty that they think people are that stupid.

Honestly? Do what I was about to do. I was on /cgl/ last year when everyone was crying over wanting real shimapan and how striped underwear is apparently so hard to find. These dumbasses, I have like three pairs from Target in several colors. Wide striped, just how they like them.

Buy a bunch of Target panties and sell them as real shimapan, lol.

No. 65790

I really only got into watching them because of Spudgy haha… I have my own pekingese so I have a huuuuuuuge weak spot for anyone who has them…

I remember when they held an AMA they seemed to avoid a lot of questions that outed them but I can't really remember much of them unfortunately. I really wonder where they'd be now if it wasn't for Soozee and Leigh. I used to think that their korean must've been at least halfway decent since they have lived there for quite some time but… lol

People are so gullible and desperate that I wanna just buy bulk off taobao and do that shit myself ugh

Don't Soozee and Leigh do all the editing and filming? What exactly do S&M do these days?

They really are.

Also, I dislike this trend that if there's something that Tumblr likes/hates, you must also be from there. Sometimes shitty people like what you also like. That's just life, man. Sometimes, they hate what you also hate.

It's because of their manner of dress/hair and their obnoxious attitudes. All of EYK is very tryhard and sad, like much of Tumblr is.

No. 65801

just because there are worse things than eyk it doesn't make them any better lmao

No. 65802

Yes, I'm so glad there's an EYK thread, they are my guilty pleasure. I have major conflicting love/hate emotions towards them. I actually do find them funny, but I mainly like to laugh at Martina's clothes/makeup. I remember one video she had a slight tan and a brown neutral smokey eye that was actually well applied and she looked so much better it was ridiculous. But ofc on the next video she was back to that ugly ass cat eye and smeared on crayola colours. And ofc simon always looks straight up gross, like a creepy uncle. When I first started watching it took me a few videos to work out they were actually married and he wasn't her gay BFF.

No. 65803

yeah but, why not make a thread about hallyuback instead? theyre so much worse lol, way more lol-worthy than eyk imo

Cat eye makeup is love but it isn't like makeup is gonna help fix Martina's face, specially if she keeps doing faces all the time
I still think Simon is gay or bi or into men somehow

No. 65807

So what's the hate for? They dress like tumblr but otherwise, not seeing what's so lol-worthy. Not like they're scamming people with the merchandise, it's just over marked. At least they deliver it though, unlike that stripper with the chubby hands.

No. 65808

I'm willing to bet the majority of anons here use tumblr or have at some point, no one gives a fuck.

No. 65809

Can't remember if it was HallyuBack or not, but they once had a video about having kids in Korea, and somebody in the comments said something about their kid could "toTally have Korean citizenship!!!11!!" and I corrected them saying that they wouldn't, because that's not how citizenship works in Korea, and then my comment was promptly deleted afterwards lol

Other than that, I know nothing about them and they are completely boring

Gross. It's one thing to be a hipster, but it's another to look like a greasy hipster. I usually find hipsters insufferable, but they always seem bathed and well groomed. Hipsters usually find fairly decent quality of clothing to keep up the try hard image. These two look like haven't bathed and bought all their clothes at hot topic and modcloth.

striped underwear is so common though, wtf? why did they make a big deal out of them?

No. 65819

they can be really funny (or at least could) but they choose to do some really cringy stuff like being rude to/about koreans, and martina seems to try too hard to be 'unique' sometimes

other than than than I don't see the issue really

they're nowhere near as bad as some of the other 'WHITE IN ASIA' vloggers

No. 65820

whats wrong with hallyuback? I'm watching their vids and they seem more informative somehow, maybe because they seem to have conflicting thoughts against each other but they don't edit it to seem like they agree 100%. It comes off as even a couple experiences Korea differently despite being together a lot of the time.

No. 65821

There are links out there, but 99% link to tumblr. I've read them, and I agree with a few, though don't know if you'll consider it credible enough to form an opinion over since you're whiteknighting them pretty hard. You already have a positive perception formed for them, and we have ours. You can't change them just because you don't agree, and no one is trying to change yours. Just don't tell me I'm wrong.

No. 65822

Who specifically? The only one I've watched are Kanadajin3 or whatever it was and EYK, both of which I dislike.

No. 65823

Because their argument was that striped underwear was allegedly sooooooooo difficult to find because baw all undies have stuff on them!1!1!1

They were such morons about it. There were so many threads about amg I need reel shimapan ackshullay frum nippon it HAS 2 be frum nippon!!!11 Meanwhile, I'm finding striped panties at Target and Kohl's, nothing on them but stripes, in several different colors. They wanted them because shimapan became popular again and of course the most desu and moe NEED to wear striped underwear!

I don't see the appeal, they're underwear with stripes and I use them as period week panties. People must have some real grand imaginations to feel turned on at stripes. Can't imagine what they feel when they saw Steve from Blue's Clues in his shirts.

This. It's getting pretty annoying seeing these white knights hopping into the thread and then denying that their knighting after getting passive aggressive about "amg y rnt u gaiz talkin bout wat i wan talk bout QQ"

but yeah, the fact that it became a "trend" just tells me they're all sheep. They're stripes ffs.

Btw, not to come off as too tumblr as many complain but, is it meant to be ironically sexy, like this whole sexualization of shit thats usually meant to be innocent? Because for the most part, people usually associate lingerie in lace, silk or that mesh like material as sexy.

Cotton panties are usually associated with younger girls…

No. 65833

yup, I keep searching in hopes I can find a nice scholarship for my master degree…

It seems they are planning to move to Japan soon, and they already registered the "Eat Your Sushi" domain. They'll just keep living off weebs. Maybe they gonna ask for money again to buy a kawaii sugoi studio in Akihabara

No. 65834

Yep, I agree, no one would invest any time on watching any of these people even if they just had a casual interest in knowing about Japan or Korea because they're not learning much from them. I think Koreaboos and weeaboos get so butthurt because they invest their energy into the people, so they don't care whether the info is accurate or not. They just want to know about these peoples experience in terms of it being negative or positive so that they can easily relate to it on those terms.

So if a really good looking chick had a bad time because she couldn't get a date, it'll draw weebs and koreaboos more than someone who cares about the cultural reason behind why. I mean when I think of koreaboos and weeaboos I don't think of people who legitimately care for the culture, I usually think of people who reduce the countries down to anime, idols, music genres, food and interest in foreigners.

No. 65835

No. 65842

I see no problem at foreigners doing videos over impressions at a country they live in. Not even Kpop-wise. But they should do this respectfully, by not trying to create EVEN MORE stereotypes and giving actual useful information. They just keep giving the impression that Korea is a 'freaky exotic crazy place!!1!1!'. Plus all their hipocrisy about mocking ""engrish"" while not being able to speak the basic.

No. 65843

>Plus all their hipocrisy about mocking ""engrish"" while not being able to speak the basic.

This. People already get pissy with Westerners for going to countries and demanding that English be spoken when it isn't the native language of the place and these people perpetuate that very image. It's fucking embarrassing, even if secondhand..

Exactly. One of my peeves concerning eyk was that at one point when they first started receiving criticism I think, they began to start off their vids with these disclaimers saying, 'these are our opinions based on our experience, and we have to say that otherwise people will get mad,' like dude. We know these are your experiences, the point is you're making generalizations.

Those videos that have like 56 views on them sometimes end up being more informative. I was just looking up stuff now and came across Trish J luv, though idk if she's accurate, but she doesn't have all the bs frills and thrils eyk throws in to detract from the fact that they don't have anything of value to say.

No. 65848

No. 65849

A lot of people would ask me tons of stereotype-based questions on Korea, and I would give my take on it, but always saying "hey, I don't know all of Korea, so maybe it's not really that way, this is just what I saw about it". I mean, it's not too hard..

yeah they stated that they didn't need to learn english because Koreans want to practice their english instead or because of the places they hang out with or something where everyone speaks english.

It's like they forget that the reason they pick on the english of kpop artists is because it isn't amazing, their primary language is Korean and they're trying to learn a second language. Then here come these bozos wanting to stay below intermediate level in a second language to make things easier for themselves rather than what would be best in a convo between them and a Korean who may not get the gist of what their saying.

They made a video saying how Koreans don't understand sarcasm, and since thats about all eyk is good at, you'd think they'd be concerned about how they come off.

While it's true that some Koreans will take the chance of talking to a foreigner to practice (come on, who in anywhere in the world wouldn't???), it's still not near on how much you need to learn Korean. There are way more complex stuff than getting a coffee. They are lucky they have so many Korean-American friends, otherwise they problably wouldn't get any near of where they are now. To real estate stuff you're 99% likely to need someone who speaks Korean to help you.

Do their fans think they are because they've had a few shit interviews with mostly low-tier groups?

No. 65857

This is really true. But EYK doesn't need any Korean fanbase in order to keep going

I think the most important interview they had was with SHINee and still all they did was making them very uncomfortable and SM really angry for releasing that shit

No. 65858

Yes, sadly.
A lot of people who pay attention to internet celebs are.. retarded. They think that anyone with a webcam and a YT account is ~*famous*~ and this blogging via video crap culture has given complete, talentless nobodies with nothing to offer a platform to speak their irrelevant and unfunny opinions all the while people with the same attention span nodding their heads.

it's so stupid, at least they dance in their videos rather than just posing and staring at the camera with a fake sultry look on trying to look sexy

The one dance I wish wasn't a part of kpop, and 95% of the rest of the world tbh, is twerking. I think you do need to have a reasonably larger butt to do this, and while it looks really tasteless, if it's what you're going for, there is a "right" way to do it. Kind of like how you can't be stick thin to do a proper belly dance since it defeats the purpose.

This video has a lot of nasty comments, too. Same type of shit that EYK would probably imply.

No. 65890

It's all international fans too. Sistar and Hyuna are really popular in the general public. The people who write those comments probably just see Korea as some 'pure' country where regular girls don't wear booty shorts and guys are too innocent to like looking at girls asses.

No. 65891

Honestly, yes, when I first saw the comments on both videos the users were white or black. Then you get people on there thinking that they're standing up for them by saying stupid shit like, "WELLHELLHELL YA KNOW, HYUNA MAY NOT GOT A BIG ASS, BUT IT STILL NICE!~"

Just.. they're not funny or cool. They sound like creeps.

No. 65892

doesn't every Korean expat rant and rave about how in Korea you can wear something as short as you want as long as it only applies to the legs?

I know in the US for the most part people usually didn't wear shorts that short, usually leaving short cut clothing to tops to show off cleavage, but for the past few yrs girls wear short shorts like that too, getting even shorter now a days so that they look like high waisted underwear basically, with braless tops. People are getting more used to it, so idk why they go there spewing such bs.

No. 65893

I said yes and she asked my favorite group. I answered with SHINee, she then proceeded to yell "SOY UN DORITO!1"
Y'all remember that shit joke?
I tried to get away from her after that as nicely as I could but she talked for so long I just gave up. She tried to talk to me about how EYK gave her good tips on stuff for when she wanted to go to Korea. I cringed. They're the last people you should listen to.

But I still liked Korea and came to Seoul, and it was still pretty different than what I expected. People like EYK paint Korea to be like some big playground, where everybody is "SO RANDUM LOL" and wears weird accessories and clothes. Or that the internet is some magical thing, and that everything in Seoul is super high tech, and that all apartments are high tech.

what were the greatest surprises/differences for you?

actually this question applies to anyone thats visited

I notice that when I go to another country, it's usually not to different from home for me for some reason, like I've yet to experience culture shock (then again, I haven't been to any outlandish places).

No. 65900

Nothing too big or 'culture shock'ish, honestly I was just surprised that it was pretty much like any other place. There isn't magical wifi that is found everywhere (only available to certain users of certain mobile phone services, if you aren't a member, you don't get the free wifi thats available everywhere) Everything isn't super high tech everywhere. Maybe in some buildings in some areas, but a majority of the area is quite normal.

But if I had to give a useful tip to people coming long term to work or study is this:

You need to be VERY careful about how you are treated by some people, mostly guys. Obviously this doesn't apply to all men, but a lot of guys will treat you like shit if you aren't careful. Also, if you aren't Korean, most guys will think you are pretty easy. They say you want to be friends and offer to hang out, and by the end of the day they ask you if you want to spend the night in a motel with you.

People forget that men are men everywhere, and Korean guys are just as likely to want to hook up as any other guy in any other country. You've got to be smart and look out for yourself just like back home. If you aren't careful, crazy shit can happen. Oppa won't come and save you.

To add to what >>65900 said. Definitely be careful. Date rape is a problem there. I know from experience. My translator for the police was a police woman and she said as such and that women rarely report it so not much gets better regarding it. My friends have also had men follow them when they walk alone or in small groups.

Overall though, my experiences have been positive. My husband is Korean and been very supportive about helping with the language and culture so that makes the experience better. Most people speak minimal English in shops and such but knowing basic Korean is better.

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. They've mentioned it a few times, but recently made a video actually talking about it. They didn't talk about fertility in the video, nor have they anywhere else as far as I know, but even just looking it up tells you that infertility is common among people with EDS. She might be infertile, but it's rude to assume so imo.

People have also mentioned that having a kid would really hinder them right now. There's no doubt that their videos probably take up the majority of their time and attention rn, so having a kid would just be a huge hassle on top of whatever else they have to do.

Thats one of the most common things I've read about from people who go to study there. They say that what they thought was a friendship was actually a guy priming them for a quick fuck, only to rarely hear from them again unless its to have sex again. Obviously not everyones experience is like this and doesn't speak of every Korean guy out there, there are multiple factors at play. Though for this to be common occurrence among foreigners is telling.

I may be fucked up for this, but it makes me laugh when Koreaboos get uspet at the fact that the sex was awful or the guy didn't fall in love with them and treat them like the girls in romantic dramas because its like a reality check for them. They actually made Korea and its men to be the definition of chivalry when its so far from the truth.

This reminds me of a black Koreaboo friend of a friend who visited Seoul last year and posted a status along the lines of: "Went clubbing last night and let's just say there was no need to worry that Korean guys wouldn't like black girls ;) I got way more attention than back home!"
Clubs are for hooking up in every country, Korea is no different, PLUS the stereotype that black girls are easy… and she's still thinking she's going to get dat Korean husband soon.

The other thing is that she's fairly SJW but loves the 'hiphop' style Kpop. I never understood how Kpop doesn't get more hate for ~cultural appropriation~. Does it not count because they're Asian?

No. 65922


Wait, so let me get this straight, sjw only talk shit about white rappers, but not East Asian ones??

I thought they would shit on Asian rappers too considering some of the vids I would see being reblogged back when I was on tumblr, I think one was about how rapmonster was saying "I can talk black" and proceeded to embarrass himself, and how some other chick was like "I rap better than the black boys". Ugh I actually find a good percentage of the rappers in Kpop pretty horrible, not just due to their lack of skill but because of their lack of knowledge of hip hop and rap itself.

A lot of them always mention the same rappers as their fav, and it's usually the worst artists in the U.S. I wonder if they think they're good not because of lyrical content but because of the amount of play they get or how catchy the songs are? I never hear kpop artists mention the traditionally known good rappers in the U.S.

Anyway, to not keep this going for too long, I would 100% support white rappers more because of this if I was a black sjw. Like, at least a good amount of white people can recognize when a song is actually good regardless of who's rapping it, can understand the culture that created it and can assimilate into it without coming off as try hards (kek, those kpop vids with the random, mute black people that are just there for street cred/"solidarity").

These sjw's yellow fever knows no bounds. They only call out Koreans when they make fun of dark skin, but if they fetishize black people or appropriate their culture it's all good??

They used to be a lot nicer back then too. I would email them through their website asking them questions and they'd respond nicely. It wasn't too recent, but I messaged them asking for advice on learning Korean and how they learned it and they pretty much just said "We never learned Korean. We just speak it."

Complaining about a few OT posts shits up thread in the same way as the posts themselves, only absolutely no-one is interested. Improve your post quality by taking 2 seconds to look up some other info on EYK and bring the thread back to topic.

The whole language thing is just the most entitled and rude fucking thing. It isn't even just because it's an Asian country either. I want to visit France, but holy shit I would not dare set foot over there unless I were able to rattle off in French in my sleep. It is so fucking rude to visit another country and make fun of their shit while simultaneously attempting to assimilate.

From the looks of the posts, it's anons who liked certain people and I guess they didn't realize that something they enjoy could also be hated by other people. I mean, think about it; They don't HAVE to post in the threads if they don't want to. They have the ability to hide them. It isn't as if a thread about someone else existing means that it somehow takes attention away from other threads. That very notion is retarded in itself. It also doesn't clog up anything since they can just hide it or simply not click on it. Yet they act like they're chained.

In the end, it really does boil down to, "I like this person, don't talk bad about what I like!", but the posters try to play it off in the 2apathy4u way like they don't care when they obviously do or else they would have ignored the thread to begin with.

No. 65950

I don't know about Gepik, but similar programs like JET don't require its teachers to know the native language of the country. I think it's more of a "well if you cant speak the language, the kids cant get you to spoil them by always having you translate it from english into w/e language." That's how I've always thought about it.

No. 65951

The only thing I can say in their defense (not that I'm defending them, just how they can get away with this), is that Korea requests teachers fluent in English who will speak in English all the time, preferably white, so that their kids have no choice but to learn English to communicate with them.

It's fucked up but I've heard enough stories of Europeans who even speak ESL being picked over Korean Americans, just because they're white.

That reminds me of my boyfriend's cousin's experience.

That makes ZERO sense to me. If you're going to teach abroad, you should have a fluent or very good grasp of the language. How can you teach if you cant even speak the native tongue? That is setting up people to fail.

I've heard about this ironically. Can they actually afford that?

No. 65957

Apparently so. The only thing that confuses the fuck out of me is how it's impressive to have White people in an office when you have Westerners visiting. They're likely from a place where White people are common, so what's so mind boggling? I would have thought that having an Asian woman fluent in English with maybe a nice East Asian accent would have made their dicks hard for business negotiations.

No. 65960

It's funny because teachers for JET don't need to know shit Japanese, but if you want to apply for their other position (Coordinator of International Relations) you need top notch JLPT1 Japanese. They really don't fuck around during the interview apparently and you seriously have to prove yourself. It's really funny how it's such a drastic different. I do think that >>65951 really hits the nail on the head. OT but When I studied abroad, even though I could barely understand what was going on at first, it kind of clicked for me after a while and it became a little easier to pick up the language once you stop questioning EVERY. SINGLE. LITTLE. THING. and having the professor translate it and spoil you. ofc, there are downsides, but for the most part I think it made things a little easier.

My current Japanese professor is a white dude who did JET a couple years back as a teacher, and I don't think his Japanese was as good as it was now but he's pretty much fluent nowadays. It's amazing what a little effort into learning the language will do for you.

tbh I really do quite enjoy EYK as a guilty pleasure to binge watch when I'm bored, but it seems like such a huuuuge waste to not learn the language. More than anything, I think being fluent in another language is one of the coolest things to show off. When I was abroad, I went through so many periods of stress and self hatred because I wasn't picking up the language as fast as I wanted to. Going out anywhere stressed me out because I couldn't speak the language. I really don't understand people who don't want to learn the language of a place they're going to live in. All I would want to do is fully assimilate myself, or I could take it as a failure and move back home.

No. 65961

Yeah I imagine being in a country where you can't communicate with the vast majority of people is terrifying. I just imagined what EYK would be like if they were completely fluent. I think it would have a lot of people have less things to criticize, but I also think they wouldn't be able to get away with as much as they do, because Koreans can argue with them if they disagree and EYK wouldn't be able to write it off as "!#@$T%$^%^&^&??!!" Though if no koreans had issues with what they "report," it would be of great benefit for these two to learn. They would be asked to be on tv muuuuuuch more often, especially since they go abroad so often, they would likely be asked about that all the time.

>Side note: from what we’re told, rent there for a studio space is CHEAPER THAN IT IS IN KOREA!!!!! WHUUUUUUUUTTTTT????!!!??! I was under the impression that Tokyo is the most expensive place in the galaxy.

>When we were asking different people about real estate costs, everything they mentioned is cheaper than what we pay, and it doesn’t have the absurdly steep key money deposit that Korea has. THAT’S NUTS!

>Not that we plan on moving to Japan anytime soon. We just kept on thinking to ourselves that we couldn’t do so unless we were insanely rich, but now it seems like we don’t need to be loaded in order to set up shop there.

>Also, don’t freak out and think we’re gonna abandon Korea for Japan. We just like thinking about the possibility of living in both countries and making videos everywhere.

They're just gonna be another set of fat white foreigners. I heard it's really hard to get a business in Japan if you're a foreigner/not married to a native Japanese person. I dont think they'll do it. Just because it's less expensive to live in japan means jack shit. They're not going to be as successful there as they think. ugh

No. 65971

I know. I've heard that a lot of people who were born in Korea or live there who have heard of them have either laughed or cringed at their advice.

Also thanks for the actual tips/views on it. It's really helpful for a lot of people to know what it's really like and what to be aware of. I think we all appreciate the fact that you didn't sugarcoat it like they do. And I've heard that Japanese men, Russian men, and pretty much men anywhere are like that.

As a side note, I think Martina's been interested in Japan since she was a kid. She said in her draw my life video that she had a Japanese neighbor and it amazed the ever loving fuck out of her.

They literally have no talent, jfc. They can't teach (if they can't communicate in Korean, they can't properly teach Korean kids), they're corny as fuck, they're unoriginal, tacky, fat, I really don't get the appeal.

Honey, really? You're late to the party, we told the fangirls to BTFO earlier. You mad that we're talking shit? You hide the goddamned thread and move the fuck on.

And, as for your comment; Because not all of us aspire to be YT bloggers. Believe it or not, I know it must be oh so shocking, not all of us have the desire to be on a camera nearly every single day or week, even. You know what they call a person who lowers themselves to a certain level in order to make money? A sell out. Not all of us want to be that. Maybe some of us would like to get to where we want to be the normal way, not the "Hi, I'm entitled suburban Starbucks sippin' white qurl gib moniez pl0x XDDDD omg is that a taco?! XD" way.

I absolutely love how every video blogger and "professional cosplayer" nowadays thinks that these gigs will bring a lifetime of financial security. You will age, you will become irrelevant, some other person will replace you, and yet everyone thinks they're the next PewDiePie.

No. 65986

Not that user; This is also called a living or just living and there is no normal way to living except the way you are taught. If you don't steal or damage someone severely it shouldn't be a problem for anyone especially since they didn't take money and disappear they are still dont whatever they were doing whenever the fuck they started it.

The type of person to usually say or think its a problem when there isnt, is people that are afraid to do something in the first place that is similar to taking a chance (yes I know about that ONE video about slut shaming) which is why you mentioned pewdiepie. They Prey on whats "normally accepted" or call things "a real job" just to feel a bit better about the fact that they can not live and do whatever the fuck they want to do and get paid for that, you know life is unfair you didnt get lucky enough. You dont think or maybe even try to think that they maybe already know it cant last forever urr durr, they maybe have a life savings? No? Not an option?
But because you harp on this conclusion of failure so you can feel superior, your "Ha ha thats what you get for trying to be something not normal to my 9-5 life." its blatantly obvious whats the real problem.

You girls give me life and yes I harp on girls bitching about girls that shouldn't "really" be bitched about its a life lesson. And sure my words will fuel you to write even more self pity worth drama, yues these tears, I drink.

No. 65987

Wtf, lmao I don't have a right to criticize people who publicize themselves? You literally just gave me shit for not thinking that Simon and Martina deserve the following that they do, especially when they provide information that is based more on personal experience than actual fact. It makes no sense to me that people flock to them as though they were credible sources regarding Korean people or culture when the two can't even speak the language unless it involves food or Kpop names.

Literally all they do is make the same type of comments people in their lolsorandum xD phase make regarding kpop artists. They also make the once in the blue moon video providing their subscribers with Korean "facts," as well as their Korean food vids where its just them eating and their wtf Korean or Japanese items vids, 'cause hey why the fuck not? They're interchangeable right? If you're a weeb you're likely a Koreaboo too and vice versa. They know their fans will flock for anything with Korea or Japan in the title, so just throw it in there, no matter how stupid it is.

Like there is nothing of actual value being shared regarding Korea itself. Other youtubers with a decent following who market themselves as vloggers in Korea usually make sure they let their subscribers get some insight about what life is like there for many, not just themselves. They seem to isolate themselves within Korea yet want to talk about it as though they founded the country. Although I know it's Simon and Martinas channel and they can do whatever the fuck they want with it, they could do better.

I don't have to take their place to prove that, the fact that others already do is enough, and not even pertaining to Korea itself but vloggers from all over the world in general.

Everyone has a right to an opinion, and no matter how long this board will be up I think this will remain being repeated because people like you get so butthurt over the people they like and think you will change everyones opinion like the entitled asshat you are.

It's not about the fact that they aren't following your typical mind numbing 9-5 desk job, no one is trying to bash them for that or weeping in envy.

It's the fact that you would expect people that have such a following due to the info they share about Korea, would at least know how to speak the language and make better videos regarding Korea. That's it. They shouldn't claim to do what they say they do when they don't.

The other anon >>65984 questioned why people who are here complaining about the kind of shit eyk puts out don't make our own channels and become more successful, but its evident that the moron doesn't realize that their audience doesn't give a fuck nor does it want useful information. Thats why they can get away with making fapfaps and wtf videos. If I was envious of what they had then I would do it too, fuck it, but it would make me feel cheap because I actually know better.

People don't get that this shit is honestly annoying. It's online. It's offline. It's everywhere; People constantly thinking that they can whine or demand something for an easy way out in life when there's no such thing and nobody is obligated to just hand you shit. Being random or obnoxious or having tits isn't a free pass to do whatever the fuck you want. It isn't about bitterness. It's about not setting yourself and others up for failure years down the road. People hop on the YT bandwagon not realizing that people like Michelle Phan, PewDiePie, and Jenna are all examples of pure luck. Even within the cosplay circuit, we have dumb little cunts fucking up the hobby by trying to be like Nigger and Yaya when even Yaya herself is slowly becoming irrelevant because she's aging and shooting herself in the foot over and over by being obnoxious with no remorse.

EYK is honestly no better because they do exactly what others have done, which is avoid getting real jobs. They registered this bullshit "business" in order to avoid getting deported back to Canada because they're desperate fucking hipster weebs. Had anyone else made such a channel and actually did shit CORRECTLY without such a blatant entitled air and lack of respect for other people, nobody would be here bitching.

Eventually enough good looking, young North American, Australian and European koreaboos will come to Korea, start their own channels that will relate more to what people who can actually travel there will want to know.

(When I was thinking of travelling there and looked up info on where to go, one of the most common themes that came up was sex, dating, birth control, body image, family issues, Korean relations between men and women, etc.) But because they have a demographic primarily composed of people who want to hear Martina talk like she's autistic and enlighten us on the wonder that are diet shoes, they get to be as mediocre as possible and provide info a few google searches can lead to. They don't even have to get out of the house, or better yet, talk to a Korean person that isn't Soo Zee.

>Instead they'll make more videos about food. They've already tried "the best sushi in Japan" and Kobe beef, I hope they try fish sperm next and die from projectile vomiting

>they'll make comparison videos between the differences in Japan and Korea which can take up 90% of their channel, each one being devoted to the most trivial of things, for example:

Some of us are trying our best to live a life where we get shit because we earned it, and although it is easy to go and try to make a youtube career a la Pewdiepie, not all of us can actually afford to go on a daily video schedule like most of these people are.

These people weren't lucky; they just knew how to play their cards to get the shit they wanted, and what that anon was saying was that a career on a platform as wobbly as YouTube is really no guarantee that you'll live in luxury forever.

Just how many "famous" youtubers have had to sell merchandise and books because they're living beyond their means?

>But because you harp on this conclusion of failure so you can feel superior, your "Ha ha thats what you get for trying to be something not normal to my 9-5 life." its blatantly obvious whats the real problem.

You're being an incredibly condescending piece of shit right here, sweetie.
People may live average lives and to them, average may be good, so what's your problem with that? Scamming can only take you so far and the little cult of people who may be following for the next couple of years is probably going to be gone once they get bored of them. They won't be the first nor the last youtubers who suffer from this. Someone stops being relevant and then they get replaced, that's life.

This is a place designed for gossiping. I don't know what you're doing here if you're against people gossiping, and honestly trying to sound like you're educated and condescending when your English isn't that good is honestly annoying. English isn't my first language but at least I don't try to put myself on a high pedestal by pretending I am better than the rest of the people here.

you said that you don't even know who they are but we're making assumptions?

YOU haven't seen anything but the mention of one video because you choose to not read anything else people have spoken about in this thread. You don't know anything about them? Go to their channel, watch some videos, form an opinion, then go look up the controversy regarding them to see if you agree. It's as simple as that.

Your so fucking lazy you want everything handed to you wrapped in a nice little bow. The people who dislike them here have all watched their videos, many transitioning from being their fans to no longer liking them. We invested time into eyk, and it's why we're able to speak about them. Notice how those who do watch their channel or used to are in agreement, and the only people complaining are those like you who don't even know who they are much less what they've done to anger people.

The only difference between eyk and the other cows on this board is that a lot of people find them intensely likable, which is one of the points we made here. It makes people disregard the fact that people paint them as Korean ambassadors when they haven't done anything to deserve that title aside from having a bunch of koreaboos flock to them and fund their living expenses there so that they can keep making videos about how mystical Korea is.

thats what I dont like about them, that they claim to provide information about Korea, but its so damn general that you could look it up yourself if you know how. Thats what leads me to believe their audience must be very young or not care about how accurate the info is.

what's their channel basically about anymore? Although they got a lot of hate for the way they went about talking about kpop, at least it wasn't information that was coming of as fact but an opinion, so its more forgivable than saying something like Koreans are all thin to a bunch of gullible teens.

Go ahead and keep trying to convince yourself your sad little life is better because you "earned" it. But the fact is you're just a lazy fucker like the rest of us, too unmotivated to start a side job and making excuses for it.

I hate how childish they are, and whats worse is that they've seem to become more immature the longer that they have had their channel. I think that this is due to their fanbase being made up of preteens and teens. Martina especially seems keen on behaving 20 yrs younger than her actual age. I wonder if she does it to fit in with her fans or if there is something else going on.

I went to see the video of her in this screenshot >>66044, and couldn't help but notice the comment in the image.

Am I wrong for finding that fucked up? Like these two literally make a living by talking about Korea, but find it a fucked up place to raise kids in? Where the hell do they think their Korean friends were raised? Oh yeah, I forgot, they don't seem to hang around many Korean people aside from Soozee and that guy from Talk to Me In Korean or something.

Even if she wasn't half black those tumblrites are still fucking retards. The strawman argument of "u all laughed at black rappers now u like rap cuz they not black !!!!" is ridiculous, k-pop itself is very far away from actual rap and just because they borrow some of the aesthetics it doesn't mean they're "appropriating" the "black rap culture". I've loved rap and hip hop since I was a kid and listened to black and white artists equally and had the same respect for both of them. Asian hip hop artists constantly do collaborations with western black rappers for crying out loud.

And people don't laugh at white rappers? Have a look at Eminem for example, people called him a mayo and didn't believe he could rap because he's white and laughed at his face. And Iggy Azalea gets shit on constantly for being a "culture-stealing white girl" even though she's been into hip hop for all her life and moved to the states to pursue her dream.

People like the whiny bitches in that post's comments are the real racists.

No. 66056

Uh, yeah, I mentioned that. However, their response, which is right there in the image is not limited to just the anti gaming laws. It would be retarded to not want to raise a kid in Korea bc of that specific law.

They said that while they enjoy many aspects of Korea, they wouldn't want to raise a kid there. This is a general statement and one they have made before on a topic completely unrelated to gaming and more so to do with the educational system in Korea as well as some other issue I don't remember.

Anyway, my opinion still stands. They love Korea and Koreans as they claim all the time, who have been raised under that same system, but it's somehow not good enough for their kids. They were fine teaching under it until they began to focus on their youtube channel, but wouldn't be fine having their kids exposed to it.

I'm pretty sure their issues with Korea don't just end there. Thats why a lot of people dislike them, they don't seem genuine in their love for the country because they don't seem to appreciate it or its people. It's like some gimmick to them.

No. 66057

Pls don't compare Iggy Assface to Eminem. Eminem actually has talent, Iggy is just pure garble mouth shit.

No. 66058

I think you missed the point they were making

It is appropriation of culture when you want to associate yourself with it while subjugating the people who created it. There are tons of posts around online talking about how many black people get told they won't be hired for a job in Korea for simply being black, or will have people fear them from the image that is displayed of them in the media despite never having met a black person.

However, some people still enjoy their music, will want to hear them play it or collab with them, but limit it to just that. It's purely business oriented and they don't give a shit about black people otherwise. Other people will want to go into the genre, while hating black people, despite the majority of the artists inspiring them being black. Other people will actually copy black people down to a t while hating black people.

I mean if I were black and I knew South Korea to have found blackface to be inoffensive in the past (like how do they understand the same racist ideology used in the U.S. despite their not being a history of blacks in SK?), while many places refusing to hire black people but wanting to imitate the culture, I'd be upset. I know that it's not as bad as it used to be, with black people being hired to help out entertainers.

Also, just because you love someone elses culture does not mean you can't appropriate it. I can love Indian culture and done so my entire life but that doesn't mean I should wear saris and bindis for fashion or move to India and become the icon for what Bindis and Saris represent.

I don't have an issue with Iggy rapping, but I do dislike the media portraying her as the best female rapper of all time, etc etc and receiving accolades her black counterparts never did even though they paved the way for other female rappers.

Eminem is talented, not mimicking what black culture is unlike Iggy. Its why so many influential and talented black rappers wanted to work alongside him. Like actually want to. Not just because emimen was doing well.

No. 66059

Why? Because she made racist tweets?

>companies don't hire black people in SK because of media representation boo hoo hoo

I'd like to see some proof of this instead of the "b-but they're poor pitiful victims all around the globe" tumblr truth. And it's especially ironic because it's the black people themselves who cherish showcasing the excessive thug lifestyle in music videos, not the whitey.

>I can love Indian culture and done so my entire life but that doesn't mean I should wear saris and bindis for fashion or move to India and become the icon for what Bindis and Saris represent.

I can tell you're a white American. Indians couldn't give a rat's ass if you moved to India or wore a sari or bindis. I don't give a shit if someone wore accessories related to my country's mythology. We're not living in the middle ages damnit, it's not like you're burning a flag.

>I don't have an issue with Iggy rapping, but I do dislike the media portraying her as the best female rapper of all time, etc etc and receiving accolades her black counterparts never did even though they paved the way for other female rappers.

The fuck? Have you heard about Lil' Kim, Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, Lauryn Hill or M.I.A.?
Even Nicki gets a lot more recognition than Iggy does. Nicki even got away with her signature "fuck skinny bitches" line and was praised for its empowering message, while a white bitch who said the same thing got loads of hate for body shaming.

>Aside from the fact that it's near impossible to understand anything she says because she garbles all her words since her mouth is constantly filled with T.I.'s cum, her lyrics, rhymes and delivery are pure horseshit.

Iggy worked for her career too. I'm not a fan of her music but she's been practicing and doing her thing since childhood and admired 2pac and TLC. Just because she's not from an abusive broken home like Eminem doesn't mean she didn't work for her success. She was the one who kept trying to find a label, no record company rep came to her backstage to offer a multimillion dollar deal. She just gets shit on because she's white and doesn't give in to the SJWs.

The horseshoe theory is strong in this one. They're so far to the progressive end that they're nearing fascism and racism of a highly conservative religious level. Like people should interact with only things from their own culture and avoid taking any influence from other countries. If you have been into a culture from an early age, genuinely respect the hell out of it and know people from the said culture, but can in no way take part in it because of your race, isn't that the purest form of racism because it centers around your race, something you've been born with and can't control?

Anyway, I wonder where the majority of EYK's money comes from. They change apartments and studios all the time. They were able to open up a cafe. They do tours all over the world. They hired numerous assistants. I know that they sometimes get endorsements, like the free car. Though idk if Korean companies themselves are funding them or if its just youtube and their teen fanbase.

Someone on some tumblr blog complained about this once:

"Their store…
Can we talk about their store for a minute? I’ve never been to their actual website before but the other day I saw a post about their store so I decided to check it out. My god, some of the stuff they are hocking are pure rip offs!
I can understand about the shirts. I mean okay sure, you can’t get them from anywhere else. $18 is about the average price of shirts from Youtubers anyway.
But the beanies. Why do beanies cost more than shirts??? They are selling them for $20 each… Meanwhile you can buy them on Ebay for about $2 - $3! Just go to ebay.com and search ‘cat ear beanie’ and you see the exact same beanie.

The only thing that’s special about them is a tiny ass patch that’s basically just free advertisement for them. But of course, that justifies a 10 times price increase. Not to mention that there is a $6 shipping cost on top of the $20. If you really want that beanie so bad you can go on Ebay and get it for less than the price of shipping from EYK.
And the cat ear hats. $30?!?! Again, Ebay for $5. But of course, they slapped a shitty ribbon on it and that justifies the huge price increase. You could do the same thing yourself, just grab a roll of ribbon from the craft store which would cost you no more than $5.

Maybe their contract is up and they decided to start moving to Japan? They've been there a lot lately, maybe they were scouting locations for the new studio.

It'd be too much of a pain in the ass to make a contract for Soozee so she probably got canned, plus they won't need a Korean if they are doing Japanese shit, and Leigh was probably on a internship so they probably are ending that as well. Rose is the only one the actually need because she does web content and they probably set up their company in Canada and have her hired through their so her contract won't need reworking.

Plus I never felt like Sozee and Leigh got that well along with Simon and Martina. Whenever they interacted it felt like those awkward "gotta get along with my boss" vibes. With Rose I felt like they actually liked her as a friend.

No. 68133

Honestly if they were actually smart and wanted to expand, they should move to Japan and keep Leigh and Soozee in Seoul doing Korean content.

No. 72908

It actually is, and I wonder if it's just me but it felt like the two were actually kind of…fragile in the video? Like they've been dealing with a lot.

No. 72927

Yeah, I wouldn't blame Simon for feeling that way, having to see his wife get weaker and feel more pain each day to the point that the possibility of being wheelchair bound is brought up.

That shit isn't easy on anyone.

Honestly it looked like he was trying to hold it together whenever she talked about her condition and whenever she went into detail it was like he was trying not to cry. Definitely the most genuine emotion I've felt from them in any video, reminds me a lot of their very early videos when they were more serious (and enjoyable).

It looks like they plan on moving back to Canada after Nip to let Martina get solid medical care/a routine, so Japan will probably only be a few years.

Now the big question is what crew or group will they join in Japan? They seem to be friends with Rachel and Jun, so I'm guessing they'll be their biggest support (unless they don't leave Japan or something either, because Rachel's been pretty vaguebloggy the past month or so as well) and Sharla will probably be in their videos as well as she's friends with Rachel.

No. 72954


Honestly I cannot shit on their decision to go to Japan when this is where they're at right now. There's no reason they shouldn't be able to make the most of Martina's last few mobile years. I support them in trying to be happy, I think it's admirable how hard they try despite Martina's condition.

There's something about them moving that makes me feel unsettled. I actually do like watching EYK (though it took me a couple of years to actually start watching them), even though they have their own problems and flaws. I don't really watch a lot of vloggers anymore, but I like their consistent programs and how their videos are shot and editted (especially those trip videos- but that's probably all because of Leigh's camerawork and editting).

I don't know. I've associated them with Korea for so long, it feels kind of weird and sad to me? Kind of like an end of an era. Regardless, I'm really happy that Martina gets to live her dream while she still can. Unfortunately, looks like they'll have to deal with public transportation again. I'm actually also worried about Spudgy too. They didn't take him on tour because they said he's so old and flying would stress him out or something, no doubt moving might also. I really only love EYK because I love Spudgy (I have a peke myself so….) so he's probably the one I'm the most worried about int his entire situation lol.

Also, even thought the jvlogging community is so saturated, I think they'll stand a chance since they've already got an established audience. I don't think they'll lose anyone, because they stopped doing Kpop music mondays a long while ago (good fucking riddance) due to backlash or something, and their audience likes weeby stuff probably. I think nowadays the only really Korean centric thing that people who are interested in Korea would even stay for are the TL;DRs. FAPFAPs are all about delicious food (which, I would honestly watch regardless of what country they were doing it in) and WANKs are the same too. WTFs are just WTFs, they done both Japanese and Korean products.

I remember in another video he even said he was learning to apply makeup so he could do it for Martina when she starts losing mobility in her hands or some shit. Shitty people as they are, I really admire them as a married couple, especially all the things that Simon does for Martina.

Yes, I have type three too and it does hurt, but I never heard of someone going cripped in a year or so. I'd expect that of someone 50+ due to the high possibility of arthritis.

My guess is that it may seem worse due to the fact that Japan and Korea, in developed areas are walkable, compared to rural parts of the US where you need to drive everywhere and buses don't exist. Martina would no doubt do better in a more rural setting.

No. 73134

I think in her Draw My Life thing she mentions having been diagnosed early on? Maybe it was after the car accident when she was a kid or something.

I don't think they think she's going to be crippled in a year but maybe they don't want to risk never having gone before she gets a major injury or something?

No. 73136

Meh, their pity party story doesn't change anything. If they didn't have the drama surrounding the 100K donations without living up to their promises, nobody would care if they were moving to Japan.

Kind of shitty that now that they are moving, they are getting their deposits back, thus having all of that money back in the bank. Not much they can do about it, I guess, but it still rubs me the wrong way.

Why don't they just do one last big trip touring across Japan, and settle back in Canada? I mean, I would sympathize more if Martina had not been to Japan yet, but didn't they go twice this year? It sucks seeing Martina in pain all of the time, but yet she is distancing herself more from some medical treatment/medication that she could get a lot easier and cheaper if they just moved back.

No. 73622

Korea can be a cruel country. As they themselves have said, Koreans are blunt as fuck about calling women fat or unattractive which Martina is both, so I have no doubt she's heard it a couple times there by now. In addition to that she's also mentioned a few times how businessmen don't even look at her and go straight to Simon instead. She's probably grown sick of living like 40 years in the past in terms of how women are treated and wants to move up a notch.
That's not to say that Japan is much much better, however, they at least will not call her fat or be rude to her face unlike Koreans would. They'll laugh the second you're gone, but never in your face.
I do believe that Martina wants to continue exploring the world with the time she has left, I dont doubt that for a moment. But I also believe that she never wanted to stay in Korea in the first place and most likely had she stayed anywhere for a few years would have chosen to stay in Japan instead.

No. 84396

how long til they release a video from japan? a few hours? a few weeks?

No. 84411

It was their original intent from the beginning. IIRC, they happened to choose Korea since they scored jobs there and it was close enough to Japan or whatever. They've said in their "We're moving to Japan" video that they didn't plan to stay so long in Korea to begin with, but now that Martina's condition is deteriorating even more, better late than never to complete one of her dreams.

Maybe a few weeks since they're apartment hunting now I think.

I think this sort of signifies the end of their youtube career. I'm not a HUGE fan of them, but I do enjoy watching them from time to time whenever they post something. It's a bit sad, because I remember in an older video they said they try their best to come up with new ideas in order to not fall behind since it's sort of eat or get eaten on youtube- the instant you become boring, everyone can move on to another foreigner vlogging in a different country. Their reasons for coming to Japan were for Martina, before she's unable to walk or whatever because of her EDS. Inevitably, they'll probably have to go back to Canada. They probably won't be able to stay in Japan as long as they did in Korea, and once they move back to Canada, it's sort of over for them. They've built themselves on showcasing countries like Korea and Japan, taking advantage of how exotic it is to others and their interest in a world their fans might never experience. Canada is just another boring Western country that everyone basically considers the same as the US, and no one finds North America interesting.

Of course, they have teaching degrees and whatnot, so they can always go back into education afterwards, but their youtube career most likely won't last for much longer. Part of me is really interested in seeing how things will go for them, but part of me hopes their youtube careers might last because I do enjoy their videos. I know they're cows, but I don't hate them because I don't really find them as bad as someone like Venus.

(also, Simon can't drive in Japan like he did in Korea (not that they get to keep the EYK mobile anyway) so that also hinders them. Taxis are kind of expensive from what I hear)

No. 84740


Thanks for your take on this. I've only a watched a few of their videos… but this is sad…

Why can't Simon get an international license?

No. 84758

I assume that he could (or really, both of them could since they both have their licenses- oops forgot about that), but I'm assuming that he just got his license by going to the Canadian embassy in Korea and getting a translation of it which allows him to drive just fine since Canada and Korea drive on the same side of the road. I don't know what the process is to get an international license, or to get a license for a country that drives on the opposite site. There also come the issue of whether or not they'd like to buy/lease a car in Japan. They would very seldomly rent a car while in Korea for their road trips before they got the EYK mobile that was basically just given to them by Kia. I think if Kia never gave them the car, they never would've considering actually getting a car. Who knows though? Simon might see it as an advantage to get his international license and getting a car to make Martina's life a bit smoother.

Also I just thought about this and maybe, MAYBE, they might be able to continue making a living off vlogs if they returned to Canada. Since they have a solid fanbase who probably also enjoys them as people on top of the content they put out, daily vlogs of their life might not be so bad. I've been watching a lot of JennaMarbles' boyfriend's videos recently, and his channel is composed mostly of daily life vlogs. Of course, I think he has a bit of success since he's associated with Jenna (although I enjoy his vlogs regardless of Jenna or not- but it does help drive traffic to his channel), but EYK also has that success of having established themselves and people might be interested in seeing their day-to-day life vlogs if they do something like that once they return to Canada. It's just an idea though, I don't know if it would really be interesting or not or enough to keep their fans/gain new ones.

No. 84759


If they live in Tokyo they might not need a car, but it would probably be more convenient and helpful to have one because of Martina's health condition.

I would be interested in their vlog's of Canadian life. That seems like an untapped market. Especially if they get paid by the government to be offical tourism ambassadors. On the other hand though I'll be disappointed that it's not Asian stuff because I'm such a weeb. Though at some point Martina might be too tired or in pain to even continue filming or uploading videos often enough to retain the interest of their viewers. It really is a full time job.

No. 84760

honestly, not focusing on korea is their career death knell. japan is no where near as popular in the west anymore (as opposed to the 90s and early 00s).

and fucking forget life in canada. they don't have anything going on in their lives / personalities. their entire career is based on desperate koreaboos.

No. 84762

I've only visited Korea once, but public transportation seemed about the same as Tokyo for me? Then again, it's all a bit of a blur. I've seen those convenient lift-type things that go up the stairs for people in wheelchairs/old people in stations where there arent any elevators/escalators available, but I wonder if their Japanese will ever get good enough for them to ask the station attendants to let them use it since Martina looks like a very healthy and physically capable individual on the outside.

I wonder if she'll turn to becoming a make-up guru instead? She did use to post some tutorials and reviews about cosmetics in the past (though mostly on Open the Happy).

Korea was great for them since they happened to be one of the first to do it, and were one of the first to make it big doing Korea so any competition within Korea got drowned out pretty fast, imo. Kvlogging sort of became synonymous with EYK whereas Jvlogging makes you think of multiple people. Viewers could honestly go to Sharla or R&J's channel if they wanted to see life in Japan, but I think part of EYK's "charm" is the quality of their videos. Having solid segments and sort of decent camerawork puts them at an advantage for me.

I haven't watched Rachel and Jun in a long while now actually (I was so offput by how they would appear bland and sort of cringeworthy for me- while EYK at least seems more natural on camera) but I think recently they've also been developing in the same way EYK has in terms of camerawork and more "professional" quality videos (especially in regards to going out and promoting specific places like the Fox Village and whatnot. I'm sort of confused about all that Japanese housing stuff though).

If they ever do go the route of vlogging in Canada, I really hope there's more Spudgy centric stuff lol. I'm such a sucker for their dog…

She mentioned a long time ago that she likes to wear wigs in the winter because the cold wind dries her hair out.

I can't believe they lived in SK for 7 fucking years and didn't learn the language. It's insulting for them to insinuate that they are going to learn Japanese. No matter which country you're from, you would get fucking pissed off when an immigrant of 7 years can't even communicate with you. In Canada, we have two official languages recognized by the government. If you can't manage to learn English or French after almost a decade, there's no helping you and I can't feel bad. Yet there's only one language EYK needed to learn and they refused to actually make the effort. That proves they're nothing but lazy. If they do manage to learn Japanese, it simply makes them look racist towards Koreans because they probably won't be living in Japan for that long. I highly doubt they will commit to learning the language though. They're so ignorant.

Had they learned Korean well enough, Japanese might have been a bit easier. I hear that grammar wise they're very similar, so all they would have to work on is learning the writing system (which is a feat in and of itself, but regardless).

I've been here for a few months now and it's hard to break out of the shell and knowing how I can get away with barely any Japanese- but it sucks knowing that I'll never really feel like I "live" here. Just knowing spots that natives go to and stuff tourists don't see doesn't make it you any less of a tourist, which is basically what they did in Korea. They'll never really be able to experience Japan unless they master the language and get out of Tokyo.

Also, if they lived outside of Tokyo I think it might be better for them. Not only does it make it easier to learn (people just don't fucking try speaking English at all- they didn't for me at least), but there's this charm about places outside of Tokyo. I've lived in northern Nagasaki for a bit before I came to Tokyo, and there's something about the city life that I don't particularly like (also I miss mountains everywhere).

So they've officially released their first EYS segment. It's obviously filmed in a larger studio (weird echo when they speak) and they aren't as loud and obnoxious, I guess because they're with a new crew and the space isn't their own. I have to say I don't mind it because they're talking like actual adults for once.

I wonder if they're bitter they missed out on the jvlog opportunity Rachel and Jun got to visit every prefecture in Japan for free.

iirc some Japanese people do appreciate foreigners picking up the language and being involved in their culture. I've watched some lesser known JVloggers recount stories where they do less 'touristy' things and locals really like it.

When you live in Japan if you don't take the opportunity to learn, you won't learn much. People will treat you more or less like a tourist and keep their distance? You really have to try. I was surprised that Simon and Martina have lived in Korea so long, but barely speak the language. So if they will have the same approach in Japan, I'm not expecting much.

Sorta OT but do you guys watch any good and unknown JVloggers? The popular ones have their fair share of drama, and personally I just want to hear someone's good o' experiences. If they dont't do the usual 'Tokyo/Touristy' schtick, then it's even better.

No. 90041

Japanese people love it when someone appreciates their culture and shows interest in learning. But as you said, you can totally live in your English expat bubble and never experience what life in actual Japan is like. Japanese people are not used to foreigners, even in freaking Tokyo only around 2,4% (data from 2010) of residents are non-Japanese including Asian foreigners who tend to be harder to spot. In contrast they had a new record of tourists visiting Japan last year, so a Japanese person treating a foreigner like a tourist is normal. Some people get really pissed about it, but the chances of meeting a Japanese-speaking foreigner on a random day are just rather slim. What pisses me off is when they keep on speaking in really broken English when it would be so much easier to just speak Japanese.

(I'm just talking about the "explaining Korea" criticism; I do think the e-begging is scummy and deserves to be called out)

Haha, yeah. Have you noticed on that note that Asian Americans love pushing this meme that their culture is too "deep" and "impenetrable" for foreigners to understand?

you don't lose your ability to walk just from having eds, not even hypermobile type. you're born with the disease. the absolute worst thing you can do for it is to not exercise and be fat while eating sweets instead of gourging on salt. when i don't walk daily it's the worst pain ever the next day, not the opposite.
plus her skin isn't even light or translucent looking, nor do i see a scar on her. not to mention she stands all of the time, most people with eds develop POTS at an early age.

I know this is an imageboard, but according to this (if you look under the section that says "weakness of the muscles") It says that more severe cases do require a wheelchair or cane to help them get around.


Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

I do agree though, she isn't doing herself any favors in regards to her weight. In fact, I get really pissed off when they both go film in another country because it's never focused on the sites or landmarks, just on FUCKING FOOD.

You know, it's not like I'd like to see beautiful locations that have some kind of cultural significance or anything. Nah, I just want to see videos of two people eating massive amounts of food like gluttons and only showing different varieties of food for an ENTIRE fucking video.

I love food as much as the next person, but god I am not at that level anymore. I used to eat like that when I was crossing into overweight territory, but now I just feel grossed out when I see how much they eat.

It's pretty obvious that they both have an unhealthy relationship with food. Simon actually does have more of an excuse though, as he actually works off the excess calories that he eats. As for Martina? She looks quite tubby compared to her husband so I doubt she does anything remotely physical.

Also lol at them for thinking they are such hot shit for reading katakana and "understanding" (I use that term very lightly) a waitress at a restaurant. No wonder they thought they could 'speak' korean.

and Simon acting like the crust being cut off of a convenience store sandwich is such a big revelation. He is aware that those exist in Korea too right?

I really hope they do something like temple videos or something. The vlogs type videos they did while on their NA and Europe tour were some of my favorite videos because they were gorgeously shot and just interesting and exciting to me. If they did stuff like that in Japan, ESPECIALLY in maybe some more bumfuck locations, I think I'd really enjoy it. Even non-jvloggers will vlog about Tokyo (JKfilms, JennaMarbles, etc) and it's just stale air at this point. Personally, I enjoy more rural areas of Japan and there are asstons of videos on major cities, they might be better off really experiencing Japan outside of the city (isn't that what they wanted anyway- to experience Japan? You're not really getting all that much by just staying in Tokyo most of the time tbh).

Also i want to add to people who are like "If Martina is ill why does she go to japan?" that they even explained it in their video. They moved to Japan that suddenly /because/ her condition in getting worse and it always was her dream to go to japan. So they want to make it possible for her while she still can walk on her own feet.
I'm disgusted that some people here even go that far as to be gleeful about the fact Martina is ill. I wouldn't wish a condition like that upon anyone.

Soozee and Leigh actually didn't mind the fans, it is just that Simon and Martina got jealous that Soozee and Leigh started to get attention/fans. Simon and Martina are fame hogs who don't want to share anything whether that be fame or gifts/money (like how they give out cheap 3 dollar toy giveaways or used old cds that were given to them as gifts). They are stingy.

No. 94268

I could've sworn it was in the thread somewhere but I remember them saying that Soozee and Leigh were moving onto different projects with the end of EYK and that's why they were pulling out more in the past year, and they wanted a fresh start and not be bogged down by EYK people being like "OMG HOW IS MARTINA?" when they're working with a new vlogger/with a whole other type of production.

I don't think it's a jealousy thing, I mean any sort of exposure was great for EYK and they regularly had Soozee and Leigh on cam, especially for the games. But you could tell Leigh and Soozee were closer and Rose, Martina and Simon were a different group. I think it's because Soozee and Leigh were production and while Rose did do their website, she stayed in Korea to become a dancer/some sort of pop figure so she was more similar to them in craving the spotlight.

No. 94272

Simon and Martina are not on Soozee and Leigh's twitter or any other social media anymore. So they got rid of Soozee and Leigh on bad terms.

wat. How am I white-knighting?

That's true. I always understood it as more of a "we're only friends because we work together" sort of relationship and that's why Simon and Martina stopped following them, because they stopped working together

How were they using them? They were literally hired by them. It was their job to do all the shit. And thank god they did because Simon and Martina are clearly useless without a production crew, they've gotten super lazy since then. I do think the hotels were sponsored by AirBnB though, because whenever they'd travel and have an awesome location they'd plug AirBnB really hard.

No. 94291

Did a quick search on Soozee and Leigh and it looks like they've started their own channel.

Why are you being so irrational, anon? Soozee and Leigh's jobs were literally to film Simon and Martina. There was probably some sour note to the end of their relationship because none of them seem to have any online presence with each other anymore, but Soozee and Leigh are clearly not bitter about their time there, they posted farewells with the fans on their twitters and are happily accepting EYK fans to follow them on their own channel. And the resort hotel was a 'Christmas gift' to each other but I'm 100% sure that was sponsored as well because they plugged it like crazy in the comments, it seems to be a popular Korean resort and they probably want more foreigners.

I'm not kissing their butt. Literally every post I've made I've criticized them. I think they're annoying. But there's shit that's obvious and I don't see how it's something to hate them for? EYK is their business. Obviously they get their income from it, so they will use their income on stupid shit like terrible haircuts or fatty foods all day. And if people were dumb enough to throw money at a youtube channel, especially one of foreigners in Asia, and think it was going to last, that's on them. I'm honestly surprised the channel lasted this long. I thought one of them would burn out by now and want to go back to Canada like that other channel, Hallyublack or whatever.

Especially their travel vlogs seem so over the top to me. They're not humble in my opinion. Always staying in the most top notch airBNB places no fucking one can afford and now they have a HOUSE in Tokyo and claim it being cheeper than in Seoul? Gtfo.

I don't care if "thats just how youtubers handle shit" or "well youtubers earn a lot of money". I don't care.

No. 94999

No, it has nothing to do with Japan being easier to live in. It's that they decided that if Martina's health is declining this fast, they need to go now while they can, rather than wait until she's wheelchair bound and can't get around. I don't see how they're dishonest about it when they've always said they planned to go to Japan, and it just took longer than expected.

I know Leigh irl. Apparently S&M hired Soozee and Leigh under the gist that they were just a small company so they couldn't afford to pay their interns. Leigh was having trouble finding a company to intern with (she is doing her whole degree in Korea) so she chose them. They told her work would be minimal (a little editing here or there, creating effects on videos) since they couldn't pay. Then they did the gofundme and their viewers increased, so they basically had unpaid interns doing all the dirty work (filming, editing, uploading) while they just stood in front of the camera talking, and after their work was done they would jut order food and watch Netflix in their studio. She also told me that they are the kind of people that think making fun of someones mistakes/putting people down = funny and they would do that all the time. They really are shitty people

Limited milk, but I'll give what I got.

Pretty much just a shitty boss/miserable employee type of thing from the both of them. They put a lot of pressure on Leigh to put up the videos and edit them by a certain amount of time, so she seemed pretty done with them by the time the whole japan thing came up (I only met soozee like once, so idk her side).

Also remembering her shitting on them talking about always buying expensive coffees/cakes/cupcakes/new makeup/clothes and bringing them into the studio and always shoving them in their face while not paying her a cent lol I think leigh was paid so that they could qualify for some visa, but it was just minimum wage or some low amount.

Thanks for the response!

That sucks that they weren't paid what they were worth. Hopefully their new channel becomes popular.

One thing that always kind of rubbed me the wrong way was when they'd film Fap Faps and quiz Soozie or Leigh and reward them with food. I get that they have to film Simon and Martina, but they aren't allowed to purchase the same food that they get or aren't offered the same meal? I always found that kind of shitty.

It's kinda sad. I used to think Martina was getting more fit and more pretty, but she's gotten heavier. I'm sure it must be hard to work out with her condition, but it feels like about time to actually take care of her physical appearance again.

No. 96824

When you hit your 30s it gets hard to stay skinny for a female, but still I think Martina must eat too much, and I agree she should watch her weight and she needs to ditch that half shaved hair look it doesn't help her chubbiness or her face, also she needs to change her makeup style its too sloppy and harsh.

No. 96847

People were speculating PDR Duncan was Simon and Martina's camera man, but they revealed the person is single, so that means it could be Duncan's friend PDSKabushikiGaisha because he is also half British half Japanese. Or its Einshine, maybe Martina and Einshine dress up in Sailor Moon cosplay together while Simon gulps down Coco Curry, soaking his beard in curry.

No. 96852

PDSKabushikiGaisha is actually Duncan's brother, not his friend. And Dante is really big in the Japan Youtube scene with nearly a million subs, so it's pretty laughable that people think that they would agree to be S&M's assistant.

Einshine is half american not british, and hell, even he is too popular to work with them lol

No. 96856

ok, I wasn't sure if Duncan was brother's with Dante because they did a video before about being brothers but said they were just joking, so I got confused. Who knows though maybe Rachel&Jun convinced Dante or some other youtuber to film for Simon and Martina because Martina and Rachel are friends. So even if Dante is popular… and I think I seen Mimei comment on Simon&Martina's videos several times so maybe they are all friends.

No. 96857

But the new guy is working for them, not with them. And when you are as big a youtuber as Dante, you probably aren't looking for another 'job' working behind a camera and fetching stuff for a a couple of weebs like that.

And not to mention, Dante's english is shit so there goes that theory entirely lol

No. 96860

Just because he doesn't know much English doesn't mean Martina and Simon can't trick him into being their slave. In fact since his English is bad they could say stuff to him and trick him since he would have a hard time understanding.

No. 96861

Oh and because his English is bad he cannot look up the dirty info on Simon and Martina since all the information on Simon and Martina is in English, thus his image of them could be positive and then he could easily get tricked by them.

No. 96863

And that reminds me, I know of a Russian Jvlogger girl who is bad at English and she is friends with the infamous terrible vlogger Kanadajin3 and I warned her about Kanadajin3 but since her English is not good she couldn't understand all the dirt on her on the forums since its all in English so she remains Kanadajin3's friend thinking she is a great person. I don't think anyone in their right mind would want to be Simon and Martina's slave since alot of people know about their past with Soozee and Leigh working them like slaves, so it would make sense if it was someone bad at English so they can't look stuff up about them.

No. 96864

But Dante is a really really famous Japanese youtuber. He's not a part of the foreigner j-vlogging crew, and he's only ever done collabs with Mimei in that regard, but only because that's his sister in law and they probably see each other a lot. Dante is pretty damn stupid, but not stupid enough to not see that he is way more relevant in the world of Japanese youtube than Simon and Martina. He is bigger than Mimei, Duncan, Rachel and Jun, Sharla, Mira, and Victor. He's like the 2008 Shane Dawson of Japanese youtube. Stupid yet is insanely popular and he and all the other top youtubers do collabs all of the time.

Simon and Martina are nobodies in Japan (as they were in Korea).

No. 96867

you are right about Dante being popular in Japan, his subscribers are about 940,719 (atm). But Simon and Martina have more subscribers at 969,038, but I know they didn't earn all those in Japan (the majority was already their base of followers from S.Korea). But even so maybe Mimei asked him to help them out? And since Dante is already making plenty of money from youtube maybe he doesn't care if he recieves money from them? I'm laughing though imagining Simon yelling orders at Dante. And since Dante is hyper just like Simon and Martina maybe they enjoy each other's goofy company? Though like you said it probably isn't Dante, but just the image of that in my head seems funny.

Also her eyeliner is drawn kinda shitty.

Tbh, I think they exaggerated Martina's condition in order to stop people questioning their move to Japan. If she can ~barely walk some days, why get a house full of stairs and ladders and a 20 minute walk from the station?

Also I know this has probably been said before, but the fact they said Soozee and Leigh "didn't want to be in the spotlight anymore" or w/e, when actually they've started their own channel, just shows how shady they are. You'd think the least they could do is promote their "friends" channel, especially after how much work they did for them for practically nothing.

No. 97305

I agree. She has very visible nasolabial folds which makes her looked aged terribly, and those childish clothes and terrible makeup along with being fat with half shaved head are doing her no favors. She needs to cut back on eating so much crap and focus on putting on makeup foundation and dressing classy instead of like a 5 year old. Problem is she has huge childish tattoos all over her arm, so she should use her money to get them laser removed. Back in her first videos years ago she looked healthier and normal (that was before she did weird stuff to her hair and got a bunch of tattoos). Now she looks like a clown.

Ramen is very fattening, the soup base is filled with fat, thats why you see little oil bubbles in the liquid. I easily get a stomache from drinking too much ramen liquid. Martina probably eats ramen (restaurant one, not the instant kind) several times a week. And she probably gulps down all the ramen liquid/soup base. All her and Simon do is eat, eat and eat, and showcase eating on their videos the whole time they have been in Japan (and when they lived in Korea). It's like they have a one track mind of food and eating. Don't they have any other hobbies besides eating?! No wonder Martina is overweight.

it annoys me so much that they are putting out 'lessons' of shit they barely learned a few weeks ago when there are tons of videos like this out on the internet made by people with way more experience. If you want to track your learning progress, then make a vlog about it and share what you studied that week, and what your strengths and weaknesses were. Don't teach lessons on shit you don't know. For god's sake, Martina doesn't even know what the small ッ symbol meant, and called it "the little smiley face thing." Ugh.

Why don't they just sign up for classes? They've got more than enough money. That's what baffles me so much about their lack of Korean ability. They could have afforded to take classes at one of the best language schools in the country that was literally a 20 minute walk at the most from their studio. They could have bought a cheaper apartment and signed up for professional Japanese lessons. Martina said that living in Japan was a dream she has 'since she was a kid' and she literally waited until she was 30 years old two weeks into living there to actually sit down and learn the freaking katakana? And kek, simon going on and on about how he was going to learn the language to be able to speak to their new neighbors.

No. 104678

Sailor Moon is very popular among (female) adults in Japan. Big brands like Anna Sui release SM related merch and that stuff always selling out fast. Bitch about tumblr SM weebs all you want but it's very much a thing for adults in Japan.

Also those chopsticks are adult size. They're pretty popular and easy to google to check.

No. 104797

The best part of EYK moving to Japan and working with a network is that the bloggers there are not afraid to call people out and get into drama. EYK neer really collaborated with anyone in Korea (sharing money or attention? NEVER!) so they could act like assholes in private with only unpaid interns, er I mean "family" to witness their tantrums. I feel really bad for Leigh and Soozee and the shit they had to endure from these people. I hope the Jvlogger weeb community tears these people apart and posts all the evidence online. Can you imagine the shitstorm that would ensue if a vlogger filmed Simon screaming like a raging lunatic like he's apt to do?

No. 104820

Anna Sui is only located in major cities in Japan, and even so its a "niche," usually only at an outlet brand mall or in Tokyo, its not even a normal store that most people shop at in the first place. Most of that brand Sailor Moon stuff is bought by school girls (junior high and high school girls, and elementary school kids), I don't know of any Japanese adult females (late 20s-30s) that buy or talk about Sailor Moon. And let me remind you that Martina is not a pre-teen, teenager or a child, she is already in her 30s.

No. 104826

They're on good terms with the jvlogging community though, they've released videos with Rachel.

And I think they did do a bunch of collab videos with other western kvloggers/travlers but never posted them on their own page. If you search on youtube eyk colleb you'll see them in a bunch of other channels, they just never posted one on their own.

>Most of that brand Sailor Moon stuff is bought by school girls (junior high and high school girls, and elementary school kids)
No it isn't. Bandai did a lot of collabrations with expensive fashion and designer brands such as Qu-Pot, Anna Sui, SV…, whith $350+ bags, expensive jewellery and clothes etc. They sure put out some cheaper stuff like phone cases, but many of the items are designed and intended for a female audience who watched the 90s anime, and is now in their 20ies or 30ies and have enough money to afford all this brand new expensive brand merchandise.

>I don't know of any Japanese adult females (late 20s-30s) that buy or talk about Sailor Moon.

Probably because they keep their mouth shut and their power level low. I can't imagine it woud have much positiveeffect if you reveal yourself as a crazy Sailor Moon fangirl to the public in Japan.

He quit his job to be a youtuber but couldn't stand the fact that Martina wanted to keep her regular job as a teacher and he wanted them to work together 24/7.

That bag is actually pretty cute. Yeah, with the reboot of the new SM trash anime, they started making new bags and purses geared towards women in their 20s and 30s. Martina is literally wearing a child's backpack, which is massive cringe.

It took them a very long time to reach 1mil subs. I think they only reached that goal last year? They were a niche in Korea. I'm not ashamed to say I used to watch EYK back when they were just reviewing kpop videos with kpop music monday. It started off as them sending blogs to their parents in Canada and let them know South Korea isn't North Korea, but then they got popular as canadians in SKorea, talking about music shit. They used to be entertaining and kind of endearing, but the fame went to their head.

Then for some reason they got a huge fanbase who supported them on kickstarter to get their studio and even travel around the world to speak at conventions. What did they speak about? I honestly don't know.

Their music mondays and food segments are what made me like them at first. They seemed really excited to share new stuff with people, especially with the music. I loved how they would also show other types of Korean music like indie stuff, instead of the usual "TOP 10 KPOP BANDS HERE IS BIG BANG"

Now I cannot sit through 5 minutes of their long ass EYS episodes. It's a completely different channel and it's so dull. Even their food segments are boring because it's just yakiniku/sushi/food that we've seen 50 million times already.

Nailed it. Also it annoys me that they made everything about themselves rather than about the country… Like… I would rather maybe learn something about Tokyo Tower, the university or the best Manga Café but i only see them having an awkward ass fuck weekly challenge, talking about how great they are and when they are travelling wherever and so on and so on.

No. 141564

Yeah exactly. Now it's a channel only about them and they aren't interesting or compelling enough to do it. Plus the challenges are stupid as fuck.

I sympathise with her, but at the same time as the anon said, why get a house with stairs? Also, why buy bikes? And her having to sit down/be less mobile isn't limiting to their videos. Their previous EYK videos were largely sitting. They could easily go back to their music mondays/item reviews, hell, they could get local food probably delivered or get Simon to record the getting the food segment and then they eat the food at home if Martina can't leave that day.

You can easily work around her immobility.

No. 141672

Didn't they stop music monday's because they didn't really follow the latest music anymore? and also because the fans would fight each other to death after each episode like the obsessed kpop fans they were?

Also maybe they bought bikes because at least now she can still somewhat enjoy it.
Don't get me wrong, I"m not trying to whiteknight them (even if I'll admit that I think they're fine other then a tad bit cringy at this point) but I can't imagine how it is knowing you will get more and more immobile.

Would like to see them go back to music monday's though.

No. 141674

It doesn't have to be music mondays, but I just miss their segments tbh. I'm in the same boat, I don't hate them or anything, I just think they've become a weird mix of boring and cringe since they've moved to Japan.

And true, I definitely get what you mean about them trying to live life to the fullest until Martina can't really move anymore, but at the same time shouldn't they have taken some care with like a single story house? It sucks they had to get rid of the EYKmobiles, those were probably great for them in Seoul.

No. 141679

I agree, their segments is what was the most fun to me. These days I don't really watch/follow them anymore, but that's also because they cater more to the 15 year old weeabo/koreaboo audience. Which is fine by me, it's what pays the bills, it's just not for me anymore.

As for the housing, I agree and am kinda curious what made them decide to live there instead of on ground floor.

In the end, I just can't help feel sad that Martina, who's still pretty young, will loose her mobility. That's some nightmare shit to me. I guess due to that I"m willing to just let them be a couple weebs for as long as they want to. Dunno how that opinion is here exactly, but I always thought they were a cute couple and I just hope the best for them.

I think thats the real reason they moved
even in that video they did with that japanese lady who eats a lot of food all the comments were by koreans in korea saying how much they hate eyk

No. 146462

I wish I could read Korean because the Korean to English google translate is notoriously shit, but from what I could make out a lot of the hating comments from Koreans are pretty petty?

Like they seem weirdly obsessed with the fact that EYK said it was hard to find a place with a bathtub in Korea but they had a place with a tub in Seoul or something. Also they just seem really upset that EYK is talking positive about Japan and were negative about Korea but they just moved to Japan so obviously they won't have as much bad stuff to say? Like I'm sure after 8 years or whatever in Japan they'd have videos talking about bad experiences as well.

No. 146520

imo they were mad because eyk never actually tried and all they did was complain about korea pm the entire time they were here.

they hit all the marks of stereotypical expats: didn't speak the language, and did nothing but complain but stuck around because their options back home are shit as well. despite all of this they acted like ~experts~ on korea and ofc it made korean people mad

No. 146523

I don't think they only complained though. They made videos on issues in Korea like the prostitution industry and the whole 'respect your elders at all costs' thing which I didn't see as complaints. Most of their videos were happy and promoting Korea.

Idk, I'm not the biggest fan of theirs anymore but I don't think they did a terrible job in Korea. Though I do admit I don't understand how they didn't become fluent after 8 years.

Pretty much, they were your average foreign teachers, they had just gotten married and decided to go. They made some vlogs for family which took off and got them where they are now.
Honestly, I never understood why people hate them that much, they're doing fine. If they try to be informative they're hateful cunts against Korea, if they aren't they're ignorant cunts that are hateful against Korea.

I mean wasn't the whole 'slut-shaming' thing because of a single small comment during some Hyuna centered music monday?

No. 147626

tbh, i just think the people going on about how they are disrespectful are the minority. A lot of people just think they are annoying, unfunny immature gross hipsters.

Most of the Korean comments on that video were just calling them gross lmfao and saying things like "There are men on abnormal summit who have been learning Korean for 3 years, yet these two idiots can hardly be understood" which is hilarious because their Korean skills are just the worst

I will agree with you on the fact that they never properly learned Korean despite living in South Korea for nearly a decade is insulting. However, they spoke up on a lot of subjects that people almost never discuss in Korea, such as public drunkenness, sexism, the beauty standards of men vs women in Korea, gender inequality, etc etc and I really liked that they did that.

They always stated that their experiences were their opinions and NOT a fact or generalization on all of South Korea, but people will were like 'whaa whaa, you're generalizing so much, Simon!!'

They're kind of annoying now in Japan, but I genuinely liked their segments about info on random subjects in Korea.

i read this whole thread and didn't see anyone mention this so….

waaaay before simon and martina did the north american tour, there were facebook groups that represented a region of the US that were coordinating how to bring simon and martina over. at the time i was a big fan of eyk so i joined my region's group. eventually, the leader of my group said she spoke to soozee (or someone at eyk) and managed to get costs for the trip, which included roundtrip airfare tickets (in fucking business class (minimum) because simon is too tall for coach and martina can't sit in those seats because of her disorder, and hotel/airbnb stays. the fans were also the ones who scouted the locations and venues for these meet ups (and probably paid for them too). i'm not sure but i think spending money for food and touristy stuff, and maybe even car rental/gas was thrown in there too. i don't really remember though

not only that, but this specific trip brought over soozee and leigh as well (whom i still love so nothing against them), so 4 tickets and accomodations needed to be paid for.

so yeah, apparently, on all of these tours and fan meets, the fans fund the bills, which immediately turned me off when i found that out and started my declining interest in eyk.

I mean, they make a living off on youtube… did they not think of looking on youtube for tutorials? Uniqlo has a really well made one (for putting on a yukata and a seperate one for obi tying) and I watched their obi tying tutorial and can tie it pretty well by myself after following and watching the video twice. It's absolutely nooooooot hard.

This video has been out for a while now…
and the points they make made sense…they basically just said Korea was awesome for the time they decided to go but Martina's condition makes it hard to be there and they are getting older and want more quiet? I don't see what's wrong with that. They said they would never take back their time in Korea.

No. 236880

I dont really think there's much milk from them anymore. The only thing worth mentioning is that they're cringy as hell but even they acknowledge that themselves in one of their videos.
Just an old white couple living their weeb fantasy, they don't really go out of their way to offend anyone so you can easily ignore them if you dislike them.

No. 236886

It made sense but at the same time they are comparing two vastly different experiences. Like in Seoul they lived in the centre and if I remember right even in the party district, so obviously it was extremely crowded and busy. If they had gone to a suburb like where they are now in Japan it probably would have been very similar.
Also putting in their experiences as a boss vs just a preformer for a parent company is also not the best way to compare their experiences because obviously one is a lot more work than the other. Like maybe if they would've joined that one company that like every kvlogger is in right now it would've been a better comparison?

Either way I know I'm being nitpicky, I just didn't see their comparison as that great. I would've liked maybe a lifestyle comparison and then professional one or something.

Came to complain about one of their newest videos. I've been meaning to unsubscribe from them for years since I haven't been watching their videos. Decided to watch this one randomly.

Cringiest fucking thing I've seen in a long time, I honestly think they're getting worse. They're in a ramen shop talking like excitable 14 year old weebs and trying to make their noodles that are swimming in oil and a pig skull look like food porn by slowing them down. They keep slurping their noodles really loudly as Simon explains how it's some kind of superior way of eating and Martina scoffs at him for not knowing how to do it (yay Martina! would you like a pat on the back?). Just because the Japanese do it, doesn't mean you have to you weebs. Then as Martina is explaining some of the history of the place Simon slurps right into his microphone and makes grunting noises so that she's inaudible.

I feel ill, finally unsubscribed.

What makes me really angry about them is that their videos never evolve. They are so self-centered that they forget to take their content to a higher level.

When they film in that ramen shop i din't believe for one second that they do it to show us what ramen in japan is like but rather show us how awesome they are and what cool shit they get to do in japan.

Back in korea they at least had some humor going a long with it (fapfap and wanks) now they are just two greasy weebs with fucked up hair who brag about their awesome life in tokyo, dropping a disease/anxiety/depression video from time to time so viewers "connect". The whole channel is cringe.

No. 261182

I used to follow them back when Korea was new to me and I actually enjoyed their music reviews, I discovered a lot of great artists through that. But now I just cringe at how they still act in the same giddy way in public. 0.30 onward, for example.

Lol sorry. I think it's just the fact that the food they're eating isn't that nice? Like if it was a lovely colourful ramen that was photogenic I'd understand why you'd want to film it. But it was just an oily, meaty one. Makes me think that this whole time despite living in Asia, they probably haven't been very adventurous with their food…

You're spot on. They even cover things that have been done to death just as a reminder that they are INDEED still in Japan. Some of their recent video titles: Training in Samurai City, What is Tonkotsu Ramen?, What is Onigiri?, One Year in Japan!, Japanese White Strawberries…for $40?!?!

Simon has no life outside of his sick wife. I know people show emotion differently, but he’s just so eager to out everything out there. Crying on camera abiut how much he loves Martina, ‘encouraging’ her to speak up about her disease so he can go on abiut how much he helps her everyday, etc. Its good that he loves his wife, but its almost unhealthy how he puts her in this pedestal.

In their Korea and Japan morning routine videos, he gets up so much earlier to prep everything for her. Not to shift all of this on Martina since it’s not like she can help her EDS, but damn.

This is probably more to do with the stress of being a spouse to someone who's literally deteriorating in front of their eyes. Martina can barely walk these days and as cringey as they both are, that's a horrible way to go.

I honestly wonder how they're paying the bills now. They were HUGE with the kpop fans and if they'd stuck in Korea they could've ridden the EXO and BTS waves and probably be world-known.

Just look how many subscribers and views people get for mere kpop reaction videos, there's were silly but so much more creative. They're so dumb, that money could have made Martina's (and his) life so much easier…
I seriously wonder what they live off nowadays, their latest videos are mainly streams and have less than 100k views, that's nowhere near enough for Tokyo…
>I heard they stopped EYK in Korea because of death threats.
I thought it's because Martina's illness made them realize that they "must follow their true dreams (which is living out their weeb fantasy in Nippon) immediately" or something like that?

No. 990285

It's definitely gotten worse. In a few videos she's had to sit on stairs and inch her way down and says some days the best she can do is bike to the store before going back to bed. In their day routine video she dislocated her jaw and popped it back in on camera. Shit's intense.


Also didn't they stop their weekly music segment because of foreign fans being obnoxious shits as well? It was so many years ago I can scarcely remember. I wonder what ever happened to Suzy and the other girl. Do you think they're still earning money off the You Are Here cafe they helped open a few months before they moved to Japan?

No. 990298

if you ever watch the video he has about his tattoos, he mentions he has had really bad depression for a long time and planned to kill himself, and meeting martina gave him a reason to live. watching her slowly spiral into sickness is probably taking a huge toll on him, and already having underlying depression will make everything a million times worse. when spudgy died and they did a stream in remembrance, he was the one who had tears in his eyes/was crying constantly meanwhile martina was upset but every time she was going to crack she sucked it back in and stayed chipper. I wouldn't be surprised that once martina bites the dust he'll go through with an hero.

Oh man, memories. I remember when Exo just debuted and i had a good time watching their light hearted reviews about them.

I think if they would have stuck with Kpop music monday or stayed in Korea doing Kpop stuff in general, they would have been huge. They would have probably even moved onto BTS stuff eventually. Japan seems like such a cope out. I know they've been living there for 4 years or whatever now, but they cant be making any money from just being in Japan vs Korea and having their own company.

Not sure what Soozee and Leigh do to earn money, but they do have their own channel called “Do Stuff”.

They very obviously ended on bad terms if Simon and Martina didn’t want to help promo them lol. I think when they left, they left the cafe in the hands of the other people they opened it with (I think the people who made the Talk To Me in Korean). I think it’s just closed now though.

Honestly I was so fucking dumbfounded when they first moved to Japan and got a two story house. Martina has to have known what a fucking strain they would have been on her down the line. From the moment they brought Spudgy to Japan, the poor old dog couldn’t get up those stairs. Should’ve just lived in a fuckin apartment and saved themselves the trouble, what the fuck do they need a whole house for?

They’ve moved back to Canada.

They put a “bye (for now) japan” little caption in there, which makes me wonder if they really intend on going back to live there again. Curious as to what their content will be now since they’ve always banked on showcasing the food and culture of Korea/Japan to Westerners. What do you show Westerners when you’re back to living in the West with no way to travel back? I was thinking maybe they could do what KEMan does with flying back and forth, but I doubt they have the money for it, plus it’d probably be a big strain on Martina’s body. KEMan also has a huge Korean audience so they have no problem showcasing aspects of the west and having a lot of success with it (plus their colorful cast of friends and family), but EYK rarely feature guests in their channels and I think most of their audience is just westerners. I think this is a big make or break moment in their careers.

Wasn't Japan kicking foreigners out because of COVID-19, or was that just Americans? That could be why they are currently back in Canada.

While they're definitely cringe, I've watched them since their officetel days in Bucheon. They definitely should have stayed in Korea, but I enjoyed their Japan videos, and Korea and Japan both suck as a whole with handicap accessibility so I get traveling to as many countries with little to no handicap availability in most Asian countries as they could while Martina was still able to get around with just a cane.

I think overall they're going to really slow down their Youtube production or may quit all together, especially if Simon is going back to school. If COVID-19 prolongs them further enough from going back and Martina ends up being wheelchair bound by the time they're able to, I don't think they'll be able to go back anyway. That is probably what will happen.

I know everyone was really critical of them 1. getting their Seoul office in a building that didn't have an elevator and 2. renting a 2 story home because of Martina's disability and I think it's valid criticism, but I don't think either one of them really knew how quickly Martina would deteriorate. From an outsider, it seemed obvious but the two of them always seemed to be in denial. (Their channel is over ten years old and Martina's EDS has gotten waaay worse in the past 2 years.)

I also see this "make or break moment", as a break tbh; people subscribed to them for Korea/Japan videos. If they made it clear that they will return to Japan when they're able to, I don't think this would have a lasting effect on their videos. But saying that they may never return? Midnight munchies and build a letter videos ain't it.

From a human standpoint I think this was definitely the best choice for them, especially Martina. But from an entertainment standpoint no way am I going to watch them if they're in Canada. Wish them good luck though.

Neither of them are wearing wedding rings, Martina is in a basement, and Simon is in a nice apartment with their furniture and a new dog. They definitely aren't together anymore.

No. 1024412

Oh shit, good catch anon. I thought maybe they were just a couple who didn't wear their rings, but skimming through some old videos, they're wearing them.

I know they must love their pets equally, but it always felt like Martina favored Spudgy a little more and Simon favored Meemers a little more so I was a little surprised when Martina didn't show up in the Fudgy video. I chalked it up to her EDS being really bad, but if they aren't together anymore, I wouldn't be surprised if Martina never finds herself ready for another dog. I remember seeing Martina get super choked up at Simon mentioning getting another dog (I think the Totoro cream puff video).

No. 1024433

Given that they had to quarentine, I want to give the benefit of a doubt that they each had to go back to their respective family homes and then they just uploaded the videos later. Especially since Meemers was with Martina in her video and then suddenly Meemers was in the video with the new dog despite Martin's first video being during mandatory quarantine.

Seems odd that if they weren't together anymore the cat would be shuffled around from place to place, especially if Simon is more attached to the cat.

No. 1024459

I don't believe that, but I'm not sure why they wouldn't be wearing rings. I can believe Martina maybe some kind of joint issue (I don't know shit about EDS but maybe it could swell her joints?) but Simon not wearing one seems really weird. Are we sure that they used to? I'd be genuinely pretty sad if they broke up. As cringey as they could be they seemed really good together.

No. 1024474

you think? Martinas hanging out with her mom for her quarantine and Simon went to hang out with his parents and probably take it upon himself to get them a new place. It wouldnt make sense that theyd split up

I always wonder what they live off, even when in Japan, their views are just way too little. Plus now they're no longer young, they moved to Korea over a decade ago and I don't think they really worked in different fields pre-youtube, so what will Simon work as, who's gonna hire him?

I wonder whether they regret ever leaving Korea, with the current kpop boom they could have made so much, which could have granted Martina a much easier and comfier life.

They’ve already changed their YouTube about section to include the new dog. I think it would be weird if they chose to update their profile like this before announcing that theyre broken up, which makes me think they’re separated temporarily. Tbh I think that’s healthy for them because they seemed codependent and lacking boundaries.

No. 1024608

not trying to argue this but i have stopped wearing rings and shit due to covid hand washing and hand sani but yea…they over.

No. 1024902

I think Martina is just quarantining separately from Simon before she moves in with him at their new place. Simon very likely went over first to quarantine and then set up their new place so she could just move over, and after her quarantine, move in where Simon has already got everything settled. Makes sense to me tbh I don’t think they’re breaking up

No. 1024951

I think moving back was probably the best choice for them but this will probably be the death of their YouTube channel. I won't unsubscribe because I like watching their older videos on Korea and Japan. But as a Canadian myself I have no interest in videos about Canada or their lives in general.>>1024902

Why did they name the new dog Fudgy? Don’t do Spudgy like that

Probably fanservice

I haven't watched anything of theirs in over a year but I spent the better part of yesterday watching videos after seeing this thread updated. They're still annoying to some degree but there's definitely still something nice about their videos, especially the informative ones about grocery costs and how to do the recycling.

I didn't even consider that. The way the intro vid of the dog was made, the first thing you see is the puppy taking a poop the moment Simon picked him up from the breeders? home so I just assumed it was a spur of the moment naming.

No. 1025144

I like their videos on Japan and Korea too, very much but like I said I'm not interested in videos about living Canada personally and their shitty personalities aren't enough to keep me watching either.

No. 1025174

As someone mentioned, the ring thing may be Martina not wearing it because of her joints, or it could be avoiding the constant handwashing with the ring. The first thing that came to mind for Simon was he is getting in shape, and he is losing weight, so his fingers may be slimmer now and he needs to get his ring adjusted to fit again. Just an idea there.

As for their channel, I don't think it is necessarily dead, it just may be changing audiences and direction. Their channel has been doing that since it began honestly. From life in Korea, to K-pop, to an eating channel, and now it is going to change again. They will still have a dedicated audience as well as gaining new members of it due to the change. I do wonder where their channel will go to now. I'm glad Martina is home and closer to family now. I think that is best for both of them all around.

And yeah, what is the thing with Fudgy. You would think that name would be too close to Spudgy. I didn't even own Spudgy and the name kind of unnerves me. But it's their dog in the end, so if they are happy, so be it.

Their blog is down and they removed any reference to being married from their about page. Very interesting…(namefag)

Caps, new friend. Also don't fill out the email bit.

No. 1035916

I've seen comments (can't find them again anymore) from people on their newer videos who have also noticed neither of them wearing their rings and seeming to live apart. They did like a few comments, mainly the ones saying "they wouldn't have split! also their relationship isn't our business!"

idk, anons pretty accurately called it when they were leaving Korea for Japan and when they split contact from Leigh and Soozee, so I don't think it's entirely wrong to think they might have split.

No. 1035921

I was browsing their subreddit and even people there are raising cause for concern regarding their relationship status.

They're clearly aware of the rumors going around. I don't understand why they don't just say something.. anything would be better than silence.

No. 1036010

Any attention is good attention, the mystery around their marital status is what keeps them relevant at the moment.

No. 1036028

nah I think its more that their brand is centered around their relationship and knowing that they split for good would affect that brand greatly. I don't blame them for being hesitant to announce it. It's likely it's not even final.
But I definitely think if they were NOT separated they would have said something by now. But not because they need the negative attention.

Guess Martina decided to post a pic with Fudgy because people will not stop pointing out how she hasn’t appeared in videos of him yet.

Guess they’re just on a break but don’t want to really announce it straight up. Simon’s mentioned marriage counseling, and someone who follows him on goodreads saw that he was reading a book called “8 dates” or something that’s supposed to be a self help/relationship book. It’s not easy to announce that things are rocky with your partner of 12?? years, who’s relationship with is a central part of your social media presence, but there must really be something going on behind the scenes if they can’t even fake post “Hey guys! Nothing to worry about! We’re just not wearing our rings bc of constant hand washing/other excuse, etc etc. We’re still happily married!” Honest to a fault I guess lol

No. 1036052

I think this is what peopled wanted though. It's vague, like you said they don't want to straight out say "we're on a break" but it's still something.

No. 1036074

I know in one of their Japan trips talking about COVID-19 there, Simon went into a park and talked about how hard he was struggling with being a partner of EDS. It's clear they love each other, but between Martina's rapidly declining condition and being back in Canada in a pandemic after years of living in Asia.. I can't imagine it'd be easy.

No. 1036096

I agree. They both have depression which isn't good and top of that Simon's life was becoming Martina's caregiver.. and I'm not blaming Martina at all, her EDS isn't her fault but if you're already struggling with depression then make your whole life about caring for someone else, it's going to effect your mental health.
