Eatyourkimchi is a video guide on how to live life in Korea created by Simon and Martina Stawski. The name of the video blog comes from the word Kimchi, which is an iconic fermented Korean vegetable dish . The YouTube channel featuring their videos is the 18th most popular in Korea and the YouTube portion of their videos has had more than seven million views. The rising popularity of Eatyourkimchi has led to the Stawskis being interviewed by various media outlets around the world.
The Kpop, Korean Food, and Life in Korea Blog 
The video series seeks to fill a gap left by travel guides and government organizations by helping teach visitors from other countries about daily life in Korea. According to Elsyabeth Hahm of Yonhap News, eatyourkimchi gives viewers "a local's perspective into Korean culture that you can't get from your average guidebook." The videos take a humorous approach and target an audience that prefers to "watch" rather than read.
The video blog has some recurring themes and topics such as the Korean language, food, and music. Individual videos have covered how a Korean washing machine works, delivery services, the table bells in Korean restaurants, and how to pay bills. The series has included cooking videos for kimbap, tteokbokki, instant ramen and many other foods.
They also have regularly scheduled segments:
- Mondays: Kpop Music Mondays
- Wednesdays: TL;DR - Too Long; Didn't Read
- Thursdays: WANK - Wonderful Adventure Now Korea (called Wonderful Adventure Near Korea during their vacation in Japan)
- Thursdays: FAPFAP - Food Adventure Program For Awesome People
- Saturday: Kpop Chart Updates - For Kpop Music Monday
- Sundays: K Crunch Indie - Korean Indie music
- WTF - Wonderful Treasure Find 
WTF was replaced with WANK. When Martina fractured her ankle, WANK was temporarily replaced by FAPFAP. However, due to the popularity of FAPFAP, they have decided to have FAPFAP and WANK on alternate Thursdays.
The Stawskis are a married couple from Canada who moved to Korea in 2008. When they arrived on May 31, 2008 there had been threats of violence between North and South Korea. As a result, they shot their first video at the Incheon International Airport as an attempt to show the couple's parents that they were safe. The video showed the tired couple enjoying a tofu dish called sundubu jjige. However, the video blogging grew into an "everything about Korea” channel.
In addition to its personal story, Eat Your Kimchi is also part of some larger trends in Korea. There were no Korean blogging services before 2002, but since then the number of bloggers has grown year by year and the number of Korean blogs created by non-citizens has swelled along with it. Then in 2008, YouTube entered the Korean market. According to Yoon Ja-young of The Korea Times, with the introduction of YouTube "life changed" for some Korean residents such as the Stawskis. As of 2011 their particular video blog format is still not common in Korea since according to Martina Stawski "barely anyone does dedicated videos about Korea."
Reception and Audience 
The Korea Herald included Eatyourkimchi in a list of 21 of "the nation’s most useful websites" and at Hiexpat.com it was voted the best expat blog in Korea. The video bloggers behind eatyourkimchi have been featured on television shows such as Heart to Heart, Quilt Your Korean Map, Star King, and Running Man. They are stopped in the street by people taking pictures. However, the blog has also received some criticism. The Stawskis report that the fans will swarm their site and leave hate comments.
Although Martina says that eatyourkimchi has a worldwide audience, the biggest ones are in Australia, USA, Canada and South Korea. Eatyourkimchi videos are distributed online through Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube. and Kondoot As of November 7, 2012, their YouTube channel has more than 300,000 subscribers and over 87 million views. Meanwhile their website, which also hosts videos, receives more than 750,000 hits a month from more than 100,000 unique viewers.
