Give It a Shot! – EatYourKimchi

Some YouTube stars make it big by making witty commentary. Other by making cute make-up tutorials. EatYourKimchi is unique in that their entire channel is dedicated to life in Korea. When this Canadian husband and wife duo Simon and Martina moved to Seoul to teach English, they had no idea the videos they were making for family and friends would become so popular. Soon after their success began, they stopped teaching and became YouTube travel celebrities full time.

Beyond the “Isn’t Asian so weird?” commentary that lots of YouTubers, and even regular Internet citizens, are known for, Simon and Martina explain many different aspects of life in Korea including bullying, tattoos, manners, beauty supplies and even how to use your washing machine. They do respectfully and with a great depth of insight which doesn’t come off as either glorifying or demonizing the culture. They have great charisma on camera, making jokes and generally just fooling around. They have many different programs like Music Mondays, Food Adventure Program For Awesome People (F.A.P.F.A.P.) and Wonderful Treasure Find Korea (W.T.F. Korea).

They’re not alone on their travel vlogging adventure — Soo Zee and intern Leigh are helping to make videos, keep their websites up-to-date. And who can forget their adorable pets, Spudgy the Pekinese dog and Dr. Meemersworth the Scottish Fold cat. You can find all their videos, blog posts and adorable doodles all right here.

As just a regular, hard-working work, often-stressing, procrastination-mastering history and journalism student, I often turn to the silver and small screens for relief, even though I'm only an average cinema-and-television loving viewer, commenting on what, and does not, makes good entertainment. I love horror everything - book, TV shows, games, movies - even though they frighten me terribly. I'm a long time believer of the old saying "When life gives you lemons, don't take life's lemons! Give the lemons back!" So, onward I go, returning lemons and logging an unhealthy amount of screen time for your enjoyment. So please be sure to read my stuff and let me know what you think, I'm alway looking to improve and be the best, most cynical critic I can be!
