So, this is just a short video that doesn’t really have any rhyme or reason. It’s just made to make you feel happy and warm on the inside. Basically, it’s just a bunch of random videos that we’ve taken over the past few months, including shots from Martina’s birthday, a lot of Spudgy and Meemers vids, and other random things. I feel like I need to sing the THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVOURITTTEEE…
I was a huge fan of EYK a couple of years ago, when they posted informational videos about how to survive in Korea, because I’ve planned for a few years now to move there after college. I originally wanted to be a teacher and they were teachers at the time, so I was really excited to find them.
I was kind of sad when they decided to quit their jobs and vlog full-time since that was one of the things that I felt connected myself to them, but their videos were still fantastic and great quality.. until they got a shitload of donations that were supposed to help improve their channel?
I was one of the fans that donated and I feel so ripped off. For 20$, I got my name on the wall of a building that no longer produces anything I care about and now actually serves to tear down the efforts of some of my favorite individuals. But wait! I also got a polaroid photo of them, which they complained for like a month about taking, and it doesn’t even have their pets on it (aka the only reasons I follow them anymore).
I feel really bad for their pets, having to put up with their bullshit, and I feel really bad for their interns for the same reason. Leigh and Soo Zee seem like really cool people and I hope they can stay afloat when EYK goes further south than it already has. I almost feel bad saying this because I want to love Simon and Martina as individuals and as a couple, like I used to, but they’ve changed so intensely and become meme-spitting robots to the point that I don’t even know what their real personalities are anymore.
As a side note, the fandom that I am a part of always tried really, really hard to get our group’s videos into their KMMs in the past, only to be ignored in favor of groups they were more familiar with and could spew already-used jokes about instead of coming up with new ones (or actually complimenting the artists wow what a fucking great idea). We have pretty much collectively decided at this point to no longer vote their videos up in the KMM charts and I don’t know why any fandom would. Are you really that excited about them tearing down your oppa or unnie when he or she is putting full effort into their life’s work, something they’re truly passionate about?
Rethink it next time before you go to vote on their charts. AND PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON’T GIVE THEM ANY MONEY. LET THEM ACTUALLY MAKE THEIR OWN MONEY AND DO THEIR JOBS. PLEASE.
