This week has been korean spiced over at Buzzfeed studios in LA.

The popular “Try Guys” have been releasing videos daily showing their various attempts at mastering the different aspects of the Hallyu Wave, from k-pop choreography to acting out famous korean drama scenes and testing out korean make-up looks.

The hillarious series of videos show 3 of 4 try guys completely out of their element, but Eugene who is himself Korean-American has taken to each task with even more than his usual excitement, and mentioned several times how enthused he is about the prospect of Korean culture becoming more and more popular in America and the western hemisphere. According to Eugene, the Hallyu Wave opens doors and has the capability to really bring something new out in society.

In the videos, various experts have been interviewed and have been helpful in really submerging Eugene, Ned, Zach and Keith into the Korean world. Take a look at the videos below, and let us know what you think in the comments below!
