When one reaches a certain level of exposure and fame, organised fan meets become a very real possibility as fans everywhere want a chance to meet you. This is something the Eat Your Kimchi experience for the first time recently, something that they summed up as exhausting, terrifying, and incredibly rewarding!

Last weekend, Simon and Martina held a meet n' greet in which over 300 people turned up over the course of a few hours (though to Simon it felt like "3 billion" people). Even before the event, the couple were stressing out because in their own words they aren't actors, comedians, or entertainers, so they're not sure just what they can offer to fans. This in turn translated to stressing over little things, such as what to wear and not eating things that will make their breath smell.

One thing that Simon and Martina love to do is connect with people and because they're incredibly appreciative of their fans, they made sure to give everyone who turned up the same amount of time and attention. The couple refused to leave until they said hi to everyone, even forgetting to eat, drink, or go to the bathroom.

At the end of it all, hosting a fan meet n' greet was an exhausting, terrifying, and the most rewarding thing ever for Simon and Martina, and the couple loved every single moment of it!
