Ok, now this is a bit of a long story. We’ll post a TL;DR at the bottom, if you’re impatient:

First off, big thanks go out to Todd Thacker and the Jeju Weekly. He contacted us a few weeks ago and flew us out to cover the Super Inkigayo concert that was being held in Jeju. It was going to be Simon’s first time in Jeju since Martina had already been to Jeju twice with her school. On Saturday we tried to absorb as much of Jeju as we could on a driving tour since Sunday was the big concert.

When we arrived at the concert the fans were lined up outside waiting to grab the best seats but the stadium was really tiny so everyone was amazingly close to the stage. Although we had tickets to the show we actually didn’t see anyone perform. Why? Because we spent all of our time backstage!

Backstage was really a parking lot filled with white tents. When we arrived, only the first few acts were there and all the remaning tents were empty. We thought we could easily get clear footage of everyone arriving, but within 20 minutes car loads and bus loads of kpop bands started pulling up out of nowhere! The entire lineup was absurdly large. There was Rania, 4Minute, U-Kiss, Infinite, Orange Caramel, Rainbow, CN Blue, SNSD, TVXQ, f(x), Big Bang, Wheesung, Tony Ahn, A Pink, ZE:A and I’m sure there are many more that we’ve forgotten. We couldn’t get a camera on everyone but we tried, oh we tried all right wildly swinging our camera with the squeal of the local fangirl alerting us. Martina’s Our goal, though, was clear from the start: we had to get some footage with Big Bang.

BUT OF COURSE, Big Bang was the very last band to arrive and because of that, things didn’t go as expected with Big Bang. We were lucky enough to pull GD aside for just a quick second to introduce himself but it was clear they were very busy signing shirts and preparing for stage. We couldn’t get a hold of TOP, who looked like a man on a mission at all times, but it was still super cool that I we got to be so close to the action.

U-Kiss, Kevin, AJ, and Hoon

What was completely and utterly unexpected is that not only did we know some of the kpop stars, but some of the kpop stars knew us. SERIOUSLY AMAZZZZING!!!!! We spoke with Amber from f(x) briefly, but she said that her management wouldn’t let her talk on camera. Bummer. But she said that she used our Washing Machine video when she first came to Korea. SHAZAM! Our most boring (but practical) video ever! Glad that’s what we’re known for: Eat Your Kimchi – training you how to not have stinky clothes. Lizzy from After School and currently Orange Caramel remembered us from Running Man a while ago. We got shoddy footage of her because she surprised us by approaching us and our lens couldn’t zoom out any further! Also Kevin, AJ, and the rest of U-Kiss were totally freaking nice. I mean, really really nice. They chatted with us for a long time and they are all really down to earth. AJ even laughed off our R Squared Pi joke and complimented Simon on his math poem. See, angry Kissme Fangirls? Kpop stars know how to take jokes, so don’t get all butthurt over our reviews! *Simon gets killed anyways* We’re posting the extended footage of our chat with them on our YouTube bonus channel, so check it out there :D

We gotta say, now that we had a chance to ask some questions to kpop some kpop bands, we feel a lot more respect for what kpop idols go through. We saw tons of exhausted looking kpop stars half asleep in their cars and being woken up to hop out, do interviews, smile for their fans, and perform with full energy. Wow. We asked some of them what they were doing after the show, if they were going to hang around Jeju for a bit. Nope. They gotta hop on a plane back immediately and go do other stuff. When do they have days off during the week? None. Month? Nada. The only real time they have off is during the major holidays, and that’s even debatable sometimes. Seriously! That’s crazy! Sure, being a celebrity has its perks, but at the cost of losing all your free time? Would you make that trade? Famous, but busy all the time (and we do mean ALL the time) or non-famous but able to relax? We’d choose relaxing, no matter how much money you paid us. So, yeah, even if you don’t like kpop music, you gotta respect those Kpop stars who never sleep but still give 110% on stage.

What most surprised us is how different people act backstage. A while ago, for our Heart to Heart interview, we angered some SNSD fans by saying that to those of use who are none-SNSD fans, the girls don’t seem to have much personality in their music videos. People argued that they’re loaded with personality in their interviews and TV shows, but we argued that it shouldn’t be necessary to do outside research in order to appreciate a music video. But, backstage at this super Inkigayo concert, we saw a fantastic side to them. Soooo much fun! They were outside, smiling and giggling, talking to other people, jumping and skipping, and just seemed so radiant with energy. Amber from f(x) was super fun and playful as well, and the girls from Orange Caramel were likewise very smiley and happy. It seemed that it was just the guys – with the exception of U-Kiss – that were very serious. CN Blue stayed in their tent most of the time but you could hear them practicing Bon Jovi’s Always. TVXQ looked super focused but they did go out and talk with some of the girl bands…all while looking super focused. Except for Taeyang, Big Bang spent most of their time in their cars.

So that’s it. We were super exhausted because it was really sunny and hot that day, but it was well worth it. Also, since we had such a great experience with U-Kiss, f(x), and Orange Caramel, we’re gonna tell you to support them and go buy their albums, because they were so nice and we like them a lot now :D



TL;DR – We managed to squeak in backstage somehow, talked to GD, Amber, U-Kiss, and Lizzy. Did not speak to TOP. Super mega stars were really busy and management didn’t let them speak on camera. Mordney was not present.


    my dream job…


    They are so HOT


    If I was that close to Yunho and Changmin I would totally glomp them XD


    OMG! You guys were THAT close to Yunho and Changmin! WAH! You guys are SOOO lucky!

  5. Juliana Tatiana Leyva

    thats all!? i mean, for g dragon!? so awkward….. gd just introduced himself and martina was like…. yeah bye thanks kasahamnida……

  6. You should have touched TOP…Maybe gotten a strand of his hair….Maybe declared your undying love(sorry Simon)

  7. am I the only one who would listen to the whole audio feed if they uploaded it??

  8. this is very late but…. is there video footage of SNSD being all happy and stuff? and did you guys shoot anything with ORange Caramel that you spoke so much about here (except lizzy’s hello)?

  9. oooh martina! standing so close to GD and TOP! the way i imagine it (if i were in that position) i think id be pretty calm like you! but only because it would not feel real haha like i would feel like im daydreaming (: but watch out when i come to grips with reality later in the day hahaha fangirl explosion! going to see them in concert this saturday!!!! WOO!

  10. woot F(x), Ukiss and orange Carmal i just don’t like F(x) design for there new cd thats all

  11. o my gosh xD this is sooo coool :D you met big bang :D and U kiss actually chatted with you as if you were making friends with them :D

  12. You know, I watched this last year and I was in awe of you being back stage and meeting/seeing people, but now that I’m way into KPop and Kdramas I squeed through the whole thing!

  13. you guys are SO lucky you got to meet Kevin Woo

  14. Kevin is so freaking cute >< such a fanboy hehe :3

  15. I am so jealous of you right now. I am honestly crying, your movie made me so sad. You met with KWON JI YONG! I have fan-girled GD for years. I love big bang and G-dragon. They are all so talented and amazing. I would trade everything I have and even give up my life to be able to see G-dragon up close. I would die of happiness if he even said something to me. Your video again made me realise that I will probably never ever see big bang or G-dragon, and will never see them perform. It makes my heart break. And here you are, SPEAKING TO MY IDOL. I like to fantasise that I’m different from all other fangirls. That I’m some how special and that if I met big bang we could possibly become friends. But I guess I’m not. I don’t even know how to send fan mail to big bang or GD. If someone knows please tell me!!!!!! I feel obliged to at least thank them for the wonderful music they make which I LOVE SO MUCH!!!
    The fact that G-Dragon came and said hello even though he was busy shows what a nice guy he is, that he bothered to send a message to his fans. I LOVE YOU GD! If I stood that close to GD, I would faint. I wouldn’t even be able to talk. The amount of times I fantasise about meeting G-Dragon, what I would say, if he would like me. He is so cute. It’s enough to make me cry. He doesn’t even know I exist. I’m just another one of his many fan-girls. I mean nothing to him. HELP ME SIMON AND MARTINA. I am in the heart of depression. How can I get to go back stage and see big bang? TELL ME!! You’re just so casual, as if meeting Ji Yong is just normal and you’re good friends. You are torturing me. JI YONG, YOU ARE MY HERO!!!

  16. OMG how did you guys keep your composure ?!?!?

  17. Lol, the way he said tweet was really cute. I think he felt really proud of himself OTL

  18. Dong Bang boys are very professional. :))

    Waaaahh.. Looks like you really had fun! :D Lucky! But you guys deserves it. You’re awesome! ^^

  19. wah! GDragon! Daesung! TOP!! Taeyong!! wah!! #BIGBANG fighting!

I didn’t know about them before, but after seeing them so down to earth, so nice with you guys i’m def. going to hear some of their songs! and Kevin, simply gorgeous and adorable! ^^”

  28. ok, i know this is really old, but OMG! you talked to GD!!! gosh, he is so fucking pretty….

  49. simon and martins must have been so lucky to meet all the kpop idol

  50. simon and martins must have been so lucky to meet all the kpop idol

  51. Martina is just plain creepin’ on TOP in this video. Also when Tabi hops up and down it looks like when a little kid tries to jump up and down to see something.

    but yeah Martina just kinda creepy….but in a lovable way!

  52. oh my goodness, very VERY cool <3 and wow u-kiss seems like such a nice group of guys!! im surprised how amazing their english is! I want to talk with them too <3

Again, thanks a lot for your accounts and videos))))

  56. those ppl are so awesome they know every thing about Korea in fact they should be on TV or something I think they gonna be great if they got their own show

  57. could anyone tell me how do these ppl date or in future get married? with no time to relax how are they going to life normal?? and also its sad that they don’t get to see thier family much, they still soo very young :(

  58. Thinking of drawing a chibi cartoon on the whole feet thing between Martina and TOP LOL XD. TOP really really knows how to be fashionable while mixing in some formal wear…

  59. Milk came out my nose when you said Mordney was not present.

  60. actually i’m from saudi arabia and i’m a huge fan of kpop i always watch ur vedios and its amazing , i really happy to see this backstage and what our idols do before their performance thanku sooo much and we love you guys <3

  61. that must have been such a great experience


    luv- the girl from skokie, illinois that loves u

  63. Wow! What a great experience you guys had! :D I wished I was there! :) It was great to see a different side of kpop idols, specially U-Kiss and Lizzy(I watch Running Man all the time so yea)!! :) Keep ‘em coming! More power to you guys!

  64. oh wow, im really impressed that they actually DONT have that little Asian accent…and im Asain too so plz dont get offended, most of the Asain people i know actually have the accent but…i live in Australia..lol

  65. So cute and I love how you guys got to go. How was the show? I’m sure it was great. It was cute when people would say hi and the Lizzy girl who stopped to say hello and chat with you all. U-Kiss were too cute and their English is quite good. I adore GD’s English. Too cute. Lmao at Martina measuring how far away she was from Tabi lol. Yb is really short lol. I guess Tabi rode by himself and maybe stayed at his villa or something? Looks like it was pretty fun being backstage.

  66. haha i dunno y but i keep on laughing abt the mordney present thing

  67. OMGOSH. OMGOSH. OMGOSH. I WOULDN’T BE THAT CALM, OMG. HAHAHAHAHAHA I was like, screaming and having some fangirl attacks here. HAHAHAHA I’m so jealooooussssss! You guys are freaking lucky T-T

    adfasdfasdfas Ukiss remembered you *———*
    and yes xD we envy you xDD hehehehehe

  78. The fangirl squeals were hilarious. And not only did some of the K-pop guys recognized you, but a couple of fangirls too. Seems like Simon and Martina are Internet sensations now!

  79. Omg, I envy you guys much more!!
    This was incredible amazing. But Martina, why you didn’t talk to TOP if you were so close?! I tought you’d go over him or maybe kidnapping him XD
    Anyway, thanks for share (I feel like I’ve been there) and congrats for the success you’ve had.

  80. i love you simon and martina for taking the time to have these conversations and making this vidoe. i really apprecoate it;))

  81. Mordney was not present LOL. Good job guys. That was really fun to watch.

  82. I want T.O.P.’s sunglasses so bad >.<

  83. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  84. the biggest Kevin fan right now. He is so cute and friendly! ^^

  85. I hope I get to go to shows like that when I go to Korea as well :)

  86. <3 <3 <3 Thank you for the fun & amazing video! :D

    Wth… Was Taeyang cold that he had to jump up and down despite the sun that seemed to burn?? Or was he just hyperactive?

    I think I wouldn't mind being a K-pop celebrity despite all the hard work, just because I admire their work so much.

  87. I was wondering how much a ticket cost ?

  88. You’re so amazingly lucky! I’m happy for you two! I love that they were recognizing you xD

  89. Awsome!!! <3 Awsome!
    Happy Birthday Martina!!! Wish you all the best! [Never is late] :D

  90. Martina – you were so PRO talking with GD with no emotions, while I could clearly see how blushed you were :D

    Amazing, amazing. I felt like I’d been there with you. A-we-some! =3
    (Kevin is really sweet ^^)

    Happy B-day, Martina! <3

    And of course, Happy birthday! I wish you a new eye-to eye mission – a day with TOP!
    Thank you guys for the backstage!!!

  94. i wish i was in backstage rather than concert hall, i’m too big bang fan and too sorry about their busy time anyway i think they should go out and greet with other groups cuz being all time in a car looks little bit arrogant :(
    also in video seems that T-Ara makes greetings with big bang or not?
    u guys so lucky, jealous 4 u 2 hehe ^^
    thanks for this great video!!!



  97. I can’t believe Lizzy remembered you guys… She’s such a sweetheart :)

    that was awesome btw =3= (jealous .but i think everyone are jealous xD) PEACE !!! =3=

  122. This video made me feel like I was there too… so weird to see those stars up close, they’re even more beautiful than on regular TV :D Lizzy was super sweet too! She looked much more tired on that Running Man episode even though I understood why…

    You are sooo lucky to get backstage (>.<)

    May all your wishes come true~~

  125. saengil chukahae martina unnie!!!!!!keep being funky^^

    BUT , you got NO FEET close to him ! :P

  127. So first HAPPY BIRTHDAYYYY!!!! second you guys are so lucky how did u get the passes anyways???

  128. I just saw your U-Kiss interview. All kinds of awesome!!!!

    Happy Birthday Martina!!

  129. Lizzy is really cute:))

  130. What’s Mordney present anyway? I’ve been trying to figure out what U-KISS says at every video. It’s Mordney present?

  131. You guys are the two most lucky people in the world! Amber, GD, U-Kiss, and haha Martina how did you not scream standing so close to T.O.P.?


    Not a fan of U-KISS but I have to say that bonus video was great…Eli’s hot!!! I really feel bad that the camera overheated maybe it’s time to get ANOTHER camera so that you have a spare one just in case it gets over heated. Seems like you guys are Canon users…the new 600D seems awesome plus you can use your other lenses along with it!

    Martina I hope someday you get a full interview of T.O.P alone and I also wish Spudgy gets to meet the K-pop stars too…Kevin even knows him…ISN’T THAT SWEET?! Spudgy’s badass!

    Simon I hope you get to interview the chicks next time too and it was really great that Lizzy recognized you guys and even approached you…this video made me love her and miss her on Running Man more :)

    Can’t wait to see more videos :)

  133. You guys are so amazing and lucky to get some backstage passes! Nice to know how my idols interact offcam. A little disappointed on how you didn’t get the chance to film your talk with Amber though. Anyway, thank you for sharing this experience!

  134. Aw, no Mordney present? Well, that doesn’t matter, cuz you got to talk to U-KISS!! ♥ ♥ OMG~ It doesn’t surprise me that they were very nice. They seem like very down to earth guys, who doesn’t think too highly of themselves. I’d really love to say that I wish for them to get more fame, but somehow.. I feel that they are perfect the way they are now. I’m afraid that fame, like the one TVXQ got, would ruin these boys. But maybe that’s just be being stupid~ I love them the way they are. ♥

    LOL… that picture was me when i found out you guys met kevin XD
    dunno if you can see it… its a gif ^^

  136. Invite me to work with you all!!

  137. Korean version of Justin Bieber’s hair style!


  139. OMG!!! You guys are awesome!!! And I mean simon and martina. Of course U-kiss is cool and all but this is just amazing stuff from S&M (haha, no pun intended at all there). Can I meet up with you guys when I go to Korea? I am studying Korean now at my first year of Uni. Hope you guys will still be at Korea by the time I get to go there. 사랑해요!!!!!

  140. OMG you guys are sooooo amazing and cool~~~
    I love you guys and that’s so amazing ~~~
    lol and mordney was not present?

  141. I wish you guys talked to B2ST. But that’s alright. Awww, there will be a next time for T.O.P., Martina!! Did Simon get to dance I My Me Mine with 4Minute? I WISH!!!
    You guys are awesome!! You really are! Thanks for all your videos!!

  142. It was really nice seeing this side of kpop stars that fans don’t usually get to see!!! It was also very exciting to see/ hear a conversation/interview in english, where nothing gets lost in translation =D thanks for sharing the opportunity ^^

  143. Gahhh so cool that you guys got to talk to Amber and GD!!!
    OMG Martina you’re so luckyyy!! T.O.P was at zero distance away from you kekeke!!
    Congratulations for keeping it in check when he passed by.

    • haha I bet you when TOP was that close she was about to pass out haha XD, man o lucky i think that was the best Bday Present sent to her from the higher power haha i wish i was there DBSK’s HoMin and Kevin are enough to get me to pass out

  144. OMG YOU GUYS ARE SO LUCKY I think this inspires me to be a blogger as well as you gah, so lucky i seriously need to move to korea…man…oh btw happy bday martina

  168. “mordney was not present” lol darn….

  169. That’s so cool that U-Kiss knew you. And I probably would have fainted that close to GD. You guys are so lucky!! Thanks for sharing. And just FYI if you run you mouse over the box for there bonus channel it says the U-Kiss thing will be up tomorrow.

  170. the video isnt on the bonus channel?

  171. Oh my god…AJ giving you guys shit was the most hilarious thing ever. XD
    He had to know that you only made them more famous with Kpop Music Mondays. ;)

  172. Its not on the bonus chanel

  173. where is the “YouTube bonus channel” ._. kinda lost…

  174. I am so jealous xD

  175. OMFG!! You were so close to T.O.P!!!!!

    Where was that in Korea?!?!
    anyways, i love your videos!!!! They are so funny and awesome!:D

  180. MARTINA!! OMG! u were like 5 feet away from TOP!! YOU SHOULD HAVE RAN OVER HIM!!! and be like “AHHH!!!!! TOP I LOVE U!!
    lol jk they probably would have beaten u up XD

  181. I really like what you said about essentially the many faces of bands. I’m not a big fan of SNSD as well, but after seeing some of them on other shows I’ve grown to really like some of their personalities. I can respect that. Great vid again!!!

  182. Was SHINee there huh huh huh huh???????OMG!!!!!!did u guyz get n e autographz????????BTW….where in korean was that?????I heard Buchon or something like that

  183. “Mordney was not present.” – LOL!!
    You are soo lucky you got to meet them! I would probably die of happiness if I got to go there, lol x)

  184. LOL mordney was not present.
    1) U-kiss watches your videos and gets your jokes.
    2) Amber uses your videos about korean life
    3) Lizzy remembers you from Running Man
    4) Martina got really close to TOP and talked to G-Dragon.

  185. The title… “backstage with kpop IDOIS” 8)
    I guess you know how lucky you are! And I like U-Kiss more now (:

  186. *Distance between TOP & Martina* LOL that had me rolling with laughter. I would of had the same thing going through my head XD


  188. wowwww !! see this is why I LOVE kevin <3

  189. Wow you guys are so lucky! I wish I could have been there I’m hoping someday they will have a concert in California or maybe someday I can visit Korea. But thank you for sharing this with us this is about as close as I can get for now, with some of my favourite k-pop idols so thank you so much :)

  194. You were so close to Homin… I envy you so much!! T_T
    But I’m really happy that you got to see BB, because you’re such huge fans of them. I loved how Martina stated the distances between her and TOP as he walked! lmao XD
    As a fellow Canadian, you make me so proud!! ^___^
    Hope Martina gets a chance to talk to TOP next time!! Simon/Martina fighting!! =D

  195. I am so INSANELY JEALOUS of you guys!!!!

  204. I was fangirling over the whoooooooole video!!! Every time GD was on screen I was literally dying of envy T_T, but happy at the same time!! And you could talk with him!! I’m not sure I’d be able to, I’d die of nervousness. He seemed so nice :)
    I don’t know what’s with Taeyang’s obsession of covering his eyes lately. I find them fine…

  205. Yeah, U-KISS are ridiculously nice people (not just “ridiculously nice celebrities” but super nice even just for normal people..)
    You’re so lucky you got to see all those people!
    I’m so jealous you got to talk to G-Dragon, even if it was only for a short time…
    Thank you for sharing this with us!!! :D

  206. Ugh, I’m so jealous. I really hope I can catch just a glimpse of at least one kpop group when I’m in Seoul this summer hahahah

  207. Awesomeness!
    I loved the clip of Amber, even if she didn’t talk on camera.
    And GD, of course…hehe.
    Martina’s “OMG NO FEET!!” during the TOP clip was hilarious!

    Thank you so much!

  208. Aww U kiss was so nice and adorable!! Plus you guys were right, all the guys seem so serious compared to the girls.

  209. KEVIN <3<3<3<3 I'm super jealous of you two right now, but also really proud/in awe/super happy for you two!
    You two are so lucky! U-KISS, BIG BANG, TVXQ, SNSD, f(x), CNBLUE, etc.

  210. i wish i could meet them.damn it

  211. Mordney was not present. …. NO WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY

  212. OMG!!! I’m so jealous ^^ you both are so lucky and martinas wish comes true to see t.o.p live i think XD

  213. You sure Mordney wasn’t present?
    I think I saw him in the background somewhere… Maybe he gave someone a gift?

  214. Wah~ you guys are so lucky.
    Gdragon <3 ~~ how was he like ~ ? XDD
    thank you for your efforts ! !

  215. WOWOW! This a simply… ZHAZAM-worthy! So glad for you guys, and thank you for sharing this :D

  220. SO AWESOME! I screamed every time big bang came on the screen AND OMG A HI FROM GD!!!!<3 and 0 feet away from TOP!! what an accomplishment *O*! how did it feel to be so close to Big Bang!??!?!

    U-Kiss seem so cute!! i need to check them out now xD and yay Amber!!! :D it must feel great to know that kpop idols watch your videos :DD

    thanks so much for sharing this with us!!

  221. Omg!! Dying of jelousy… Love GD… Best moment ever!! Keke

  222. Luckyykvklsdfsdfksdofkdsofksdfkosdfvsd.

  223. not faaaair!!! xD it looks like you guys had alot of fun :)

    I even freaked out when TOP got so close to the camera…GD said hi even with all the stuff going on <3 LOL at Taeyang…he was like "oh shiz! camera is on me! *puts on glasses*"

    and OMG AJ and Kevin!!!! so cute! It's awesome they chatted with you guys.

    and ahhhhhh Amber! <3 she seems so fun…and I can just imagine the ":DDDD!" when she told you guys that she used your washing machine video….xD

    and…is Mordney ever present?

  224. awwwwwwn, ukiss boys were so nice and friendly! kevin is such a sweetheart and kiseop looked like a doll, so pretty :D
    lizzy was sweet too, coming to talk with you guys! I think i like them a lot more now, just like you!

  225. wow i always liked U-kiss but this just boosted it higher! ^^
    you both met BIG BANG! Your both so lucky! and even though you didn’t really get to talk to them you still got to see them up close! That is amazing! xD

    its too bad though that martina didnt get a chance to talk to top =(
    but at least we get a hello from G-DRAGON <3

  227. wow it’s really great that you got a chance to speak to u-kiss like that. it’s cool that they’re so friendly and their management let them talk to you unlike f(x)’s. but it was cool amber still told you about watching ur vids. and awww i never paid attention to orange caramel but lizzy seems so sweet! and at least you got to talk to GD! wow. i need to visit korea.

  228. Omg, Lizzy’s English is perfect! Her voice is so cute!

  229. looking forward to ukiss! kissmes are very happy, its nice to know that there as kind as they seem

  230. I could just hear Martina’s inner fangirl going KYA! when she saw TOP! XD I would have stared in shock and just freeze…
    But The U-KISS guys are so sweet, they truely are a lovely bunch of guys! and It seems to me that you are slowly becoming the number one music critics in Korea, It was like you were somewhat of famous!

  231. Oh that was so amazing! so happy to see snsd and read your description of them :D go SNSD!

  232. OMG i really envy you, you’re so lucky to meet them at the backstage XD
    TOP look really handsome here, oh i wish i was you

  233. ;A; HOLLLYYYYYYYYYY AJ’S english is perfect! :D Looking forward to that Ukiss interview xx

  234. When you guys are close to K-POP stars, it makes me feel that I myself am close to them too :DDD you guys are the eyes of the rest of us fans. Thank You SO MUCHHHHHH <3

  235. OMG I am totally dying out of amazement right before dying out of laughter when you guys talked to AJ !! That was SUPER HILARIOUS !! Great job guys, even GD said Hi to us, haha :D
    And again, “Mordney is not Present” ??? OMG xDDD

  236. GD’s accent made me giggle…heeheee…

  237. Oh, it’s a shame Amber wasn’t allowed to speak on camera. She’s such a neat person. I think I tend to like people better when they are American (easier to relate to?). All in all, I think it’s really cool you guys get opportunities like this. And extra cool because you get to share them with us! Thanks!


  239. “Mordney was not present.”
    OMG. A+

  240. Lizzy is amazingly nice i miss her!

  241. Wowwww, that is like every kpop fans dream come true.
    my gosh, how great was Kevin <33

  252. Asa! You guys are so lucky!! I hope Martina stayed conscious when TOP walked by. I know I wouldn’t be. XD I’m really happy that you got to meet your favorite kpop band Martina! Thank you guys so much for always posting cool stuff about Korea and kpop for those of us who are so far away from it. Hopefully I’ll get to go to Korea someday, but I look forward to your videos every week. Especially now that it’s finals week, I’ll be rewatching eatyourkimchi like it’s going out of style.
