So Crayon Pop stopped by the studio and decided to play along with us for a small skit, answer a few questions, take some pictures with us in our sticker booth, and give away a bunch of signed CDs, which we’re in turn giving away to you. Success! We made a playlist of the full interview, which is in two parts. If you can’t see the playlist, for some reason, you can see part 2 of the interview here!

A few things about the interview that we didn’t get to mention in the video:

Major respect goes out to Crayon Pop and their crazy schedule. Bar Bar Bar has really blown up for them and they were dead tired when they arrived at the studio yet they were still chipper and adorable in their pink outfits and helmets. If you haven’t seen their hilarious video for Bar Bar Bar yet, check out their newest version here:

As a result of it getting so popular, they’re pretty much doing loads of shows and appearances. Right after filming with us they drove off to Daejeon for a show which is a location far away from where we are. The day afterwards, they were back in Gangnam for another performance, which – oddly – was at a YouTube conference that Soo Zee was attending. Ha! Soo Zee says they didn’t see her in the crowd, though.

Also, this was the first girl group that we interviewed! WOOHOO! What was really cool about it is that they LOVED the fanmail candy you guise sent us. We can’t eat all of it ourselves, of course. It’s too much for a regular human to eat! Or is it… So we share it with whoever comes by the studio. Crayon Pop dug right in. They loved the fruit taffy, and they tried both French and Russian chocolates! We were thinking to ourselves “they’re a girl group, maybe they’re probably on a strict diet and can’t…oh wait. They’re chowing down!” Super cool in our books.

  1. I am Chinesebookworm on YouTube. Crayon Pop are pops of pretty colour swirling through my mind. Such addicting songs! I like how you can actually work out to them by learning their dances; such perfection! :D

    My wishes to Crayon Pop to never lose their fun style and colour! Best of luck in all your endeavours! Fighting!!

    Crayon Pop please stay in touch with Simon and Martina. I think they will be very happy to have you as friends! <3

  2. I like the songs and Crayon Pop because it gives us the impression of seeing friends having fun and doing what you love which is singing, no matter in what place, clothes or situation, they are always happy singing. I saw the videos of them, ‘Bing bing’ and ‘Bar bar bar’ and fell in love with it their way.
    I know that in the midst of so many smiles and laughter came many weeping and sorrow, but they never passed it in their videos. Even when they were prevented from appearing in music programs they always find a way to show their work to their fans and admirers.
    I live in a country where the female body is more valuable than what we think (I live in Brazil; my country has many beauties things, but unfortunately also has many flaws and don’t like this defect, to me, to make the foreigners _some of these already think so_think that brazilian women are just butt, chest and thighs) and rightfully so don’t like seeing girl groups in K-pop, where companies super expose the bodies of these girls instead of the beautiful voice that most of them have.
    So, by knowing Crayon Pop I saw a group that to be sexy and cute is not the main point and not the flagship of their presentations; the flagship is the fun and the feeling that anyone can have fun with little things, we can even dance with gym clothes, uniform of the college and nothing else is needed.
    In most, I wish them much success and that they keep this formula, because with this little way they will have more and more sucess and fame.

  3. I LITERALLY loved these 5 ADORABLE girls since the beginning and was so proud when they began to get noticed for Bar Bar Bar. Their songs and energy truly bring me joy and get me DANCING all the time! I seriously think Crayon Pop is such a UNIQUE girl group and also a talented one. They inspire me to be different and embrace my ‘corky-ness ‘ I love them and EYK so much! Best luck in the future for both!! <3

    OMG!!!!! I love u guys (Crayon Pop) so much. I’m always playing your songs on my ipod or trying to dance to them because they are so cute/fun. I love how you aren’t like regular girl groups who either try to be really sexy or really cute. All five of you are just crazy, adorable and incredibly talented girls who don’t try to be something they aren’t, which is why I think you are so awesome. ^^ Way: I think you are so pretty and I love how confident you seem in everything you do. Ellin: I LOVE YOU!!!! You are so adorable and funny. Choa: I love your voice; it’s so soothing and beautiful. Gummi: Thank you for taking care and acting like a mother for these four other girls. Your love for them definitely shines in everything that you do. Lastly, Soyul: Our maknae. Your energy is so infectious and you always make me wanna get up and start moving with your cute actions. Thank you for coming together and becoming the group that all of us love and cherish. Also, your songs are definitely the best workout songs ever. Lol. I’m always listening to ‘Saturday Night’ or ‘Bing Bing’ when I’m in the gym. I’ll always love and support Crayon Pop no matter what, so try not to overwork yourself too much and enjoy all of the recognition that you most definitely deserve. CRAYON POP, AING!!!!! <3 Saranghae. Fighting!!!!

  7. Hey Crayon Pop!
    I remember the first time I heard your song Saturday Night like it was yesterday, I usually don’t like cute concepts that much, but yours was quite different – it wasn’t all ‘pink and glitter-y’ but a ‘smiling and having fun’ kind of cute and I immediately fell in love with you guys <3 I eventually became addicted to your debut song Bing Bing as well… Bing, bi-bing bing bing~ Your stage outfits are so cute and dorky :D And your dances are so much fun~
    I always knew: the world needs more girl groups like you! I wanted humanity to give more attention to so badly~ And look to where you have come now – your song being like the 2013 edition of Gangnam Style (unfortunately, without the international popularity) even though you're from a pretty unknown company ^-^ Time sure flies fast…
    Martina MCing your kpop chart update made me really excited and seeing your hilarious interview made my day :) Thanks to Simon and Martina for making this possible as well!
    I love buying the music I like physically, and now that you FINALLY released a physical album, I want it so badly^^ And it would be SO freaking cool if I could get it signed <3
    Please continue to be such a refreshing and fun group! Crayong Pop, fighting!

  8. Shark. Hurts for a bit and then over quickly. Poison is not fun kids… That stuff is horrible. Some nature blogger did a post about the one time that he almost died to a black widow bite and it made me want to never go outside again…

    • I think it depends on what type of spider with what type of poison. Say it’s a painless poison that just makes you sleep and never wake up, rather than a poison that has a bunch of symptoms before death? o.o And it also depends on where you get bit by a shark for you to die. It could bite you on the arm and you could slowly bleed to death, which would still be considered death by shark. Or it could be as fast as lightning if the shark just bit your head off or a part of your torso. o.o
      I’m probably thinking about this too much….

      3 years ago
    • I know! That’s crazy! A shark will kill you in under a minute. A spider will kill you over the course of hours. Poison’s a terrible way to die. Shark: get bit hard, bleed out, and you’re done.

    I can’t even express how excited I was when I saw EYK was going to
    interview Crayon Pop starting with the hint asking for fan questions. It
    was two of my favourite things in one place!!! Literally spammed all my
    social media with it.

    Personally, I’ve been wanted to do
    something Crayon Pop related for a video on my Youtube channel:

    happens, lol. Anyways, love what you guys do, keep it up! EYK fighting!

    Crayon Pop is awesome. We rarely come across groups that aren’t all mini skirts and aegyo AND have catchy, fun music. Crayon Pop is a prime example of cute without the aegyo overdose, and silly while still looking cute. =P And to top it all they are being recognized for that unorthodox awesomeness. Win~ (*>.<*)/ These are songs I can dance along with and even teach to my little cousins; like that cover video shows, Crayon Pop has a universal appeal that many girl groups lack these days. From debut until now, they've never disappointed. I hope they never change.
    크레이용팝, 축하해용! 우리에게 좋은 음악을 들려줘서 고마워용. 우리 팬들도 열심히하는 크레이용팝을 위해 열심히 응원할게요. 사랑해용 ♥ 화이팅!

  16. My Fiance showed me Crayon Pop not long after we got together. Ever since then I have been 100% in love with their music. I love them so much that I am now one of the 4 staff members of “Crayon Pop UK”. I believe their song writing team (known as Dumb & Dumber) are pretty much musical genius’. Everything about the ORIGINAL “Dancing Queen” was magical, from the production to the vocals. The girls are very pretty, extremely funny and seem VERY approachable. I’d love to see them live someday. I’ve also went ahead and bought ALL of their CD’s so far, including a signed version of their Bing Bing single, all of which I’ve given as gifts to my Fiance as a thank you for introducing me to the girls.

  17. To start this off: SNSD was my favorite group, loving them since 2009, but this summer Crayon Pop just totally took my heart with them. Nearly everyone’s thinking that they are just “a girl group, jumping around with helmets and stuff” but seriously – for me, it seems like these 5 girls are the kindest and most fun-having girls in the whole K-Pop industry. <3 It's amazing how they made their way from Guerilla performances on a cold winter to #1 on a music show – always wearing a smile and having fun at everything they're doing. :) They are really hardworking and they totally deserve all the recognization for Bar Bar Bar – I really hope they will keep their success! Even though all five of them are amazing and perfect, Soyul completely won my heart and became my Ultimate Bias (Just wanting to let everybody know how PERFECT she is, seriously.) – which I thought would be impossible. At the moment I'm gathering some money, in hope that I can get all of Crayon Pop's releases soon – such a unique group deserves all my support I can give. <3 Let's hope they will get worldwide recognization! :)

  18. To start with, Crayon Pop songs are really amazing! They are exactly my style. ♡ Crayon Pop is showing a very cute side of the kpop. The thing I like the most about them is that they’re not the typical girl group. They don’t wear short skirts, they don’t show their legs and I really like the fact that they’re fully “covered” most of the time. That means that their fans are not fans because of liking their body (because there are many fans like this out there), but because of their good music and cute personalities. Other things I like about Crayon pop are definitely their personalities. They’re just adorable. They’re always having fun no matter what. And I love watching their videos at youtube even though I don’t understand them. But when they smile, I smile too. Other thing that makes my heart melt is how hard they work for their fans and how great they treat them. They always make street concerts, which helps fans a lot to get closer to their favourite group. ^^ Which is amazing! Crayon Pop is a group which definitely deserves to be recognized more!
    Crayon Pop is going to be one of my favourite girl groups forever. CRAYON POP, 화이팅! You girls are an inspiration to me. Keep on working hard and you’ll achieve a lot for sure. LOVE YOU. ♥

      “That means that their fans are not fans because of liking their body (because there are many fans like this out there), but because of their good music and cute personalities.”

      I completely agree. Just the same there are a couple of sexy girl groups I see that have one or two amazing singers, and/or have gorgeous members, but I can’t get into them because I’m not interested in the music or image. But then there are those groups I love to watch on variety shows and BTS clips because of their personalities, but I don’t like their music. Crayon Pop is likable in a lot of aspects and I think one can tell that their fans aren’t shallow. Kpop isn’t JUST about the face, afterall.

  24. You got yourself a new fan ten seconds into that song. I felt like it’s been forever since I’ve heard something genuinely refreshing cute. This is just waiting for me to embarrass myself in my commute. (Not Simon and Martina level, because that is practically legendary.) Thanks for having dance moves that are easy enough to trick people into exercising! I’m going to dedicate my future toned buttocks to Crayon Pop.

    I hope you guys keep pumping out songs like these and still have fun!

  26. Very cute interview, now Bar Bar Bar is going to be stuck in my head all day. Love that they did the opening skit with you guys. Simon you’ve got the jumping down pat. Even though the helmets are apart of their outfits I’m sure they are glad to take those things off for the marshmallow. My head hurts for them. Will we be seeing any of the marshmallow pics?

Your channel is so cool~~ As someone who doesn’t speak korean… your channel really helps me updated with the happenings in the kpop world..and i’m pretty sure you’ve also turned a lot of people to be intertested in the kpop/korean culture with your very fun channel.

  31. I don’t really know where to start. You guys have really been such an inspiration to not just me, but millions as well and I’m sure of that. Seeing you sweating everything out with the dance and putting 100% effort brings warm passion and concerns for me. Warm passion being that you guys are so into your music career and just doing what you like with the people closest to you, and concerns regarding your bodies and health. You guys may not have time to live your free teenage life as you wish and sometimes little things affect your outer shell but I love that your inner body and mind aren’t affected. Whenever you guys are hurt and feel apologetic towards us, just know that we’re worried about you too. It’s a miracle for this sudden jump in popularity with another cute hit song. Keep jumping! Yeah! Jumping! to the very top of the music charts ^^

  33. I really love this group! Ok, I’m from Europe (Spain) and I really like k-pop. Here, this type of music isn’t really common, but it’s the same for me. Crayon pop it’s one of my favorites groups of this music with SNSD and 2ne1 and they are great. I love their music videos and their songs, they’re really fun and special. I now this group isn’t that famous, but I think it should be. My favorite songs of Crayon Pop are Bar Bar Bar and Bing Bing. I hope they make more songs and I would like to have that CD.
    Thanks for this interview Simon and Martina! :D

  37. Even though people make fun off “The bike helmet girls from Korea” in my school class, I will always see them as the ultimate rookie group. They started out with a hope off becoming KPOP stars, and finally suceeded after months and months off doing free performaces out in the winter weather. I trully think that they did some amazing work, and they will always have a part in my KPOP heart. I would really wish to have a signed version off one off my favorite albums, to remind me every single day that I should follow my dreams and it will always suceed in the end.
