Kpop Music Monday: Fangurilla in Europe!

November 25, 2014

Dear father,

I know you might have just watched this video, furrowed your eyebrows, looked over at my mom a little sadly, and then asked to yourself, quietly – not out loud – what has happened to your son. Why is he wearing a dress in Europe and talking about Kpop boys? Why wouldn’t he at least shave? All valid questions, dad. All valid questions.

Ok, but for real, doing this bit as Fangurilla in public was very difficult and very, very intimidating. I only did Fangurilla in the studio, in a closed, soundproof room with no windows. Then I see it online and think to myself, hey, that was kinda funny. But to do Fangurilla in person, around lots of other people, all of them staring at me…really scary!

I broke character a lot. For starters, Fangurilla’s voice is really damaging. I can’t do it before an event because I can’t speak afterwards. Totally causes havok on my vocal chords. It was really tough in Amsterdam after doing Fangurilla! So, while filming these two segments, I broke character a lot because I would just start coughing. Ahhh!

Also, umm, I’m not all too clever on the spot. Fangurilla should have had lots of other silly, dirty questions to ask, but I was too busy thinking “WTF AM I DOING HERE IN EUROPE LOOKING LIKE THIS?!” It was very challenging to stay focused. I can laugh at myself now, afterwards, but at the time I was quite nervous. Doing things live is so scary! You can see some of my embarrassment and coughing in the bloopers below:

Anyhow, enough excuses: I know some of you might have stumbled into this video and are really needing context. Here it is: 1) Fangurilla is a character we have that is the ultimate of ultimate Kpop fangirls. 2) While we were on our Ooh Euro Nasty Tour in Europe, we had Fangurilla come out for some of our events. This video is the result of that.

We couldn’t do Fangurilla for every event, sadly. In Sweden and Germany, our events were just Eatyourkimchi events, and so we didn’t have time before or after we were on stage to do Fangurilla. In Norway and the Netherlands, though, these were full-day events, so we had more time to do this.

More to the point: we’re really interested in what other people think and feel. We’re always talking about what we’ve experienced and what we think of songs and food and events and all that, but we love hearing what you guise are all about. That’s the main reason we started our Speaker’s Corner segment, and it’s also one of the main reasons we spend so much time in the site here, on YouTube comments, and in our app. You all are more a part of Eatyourkimchi than we are. So, at these events, we really wanted to both joke around with you and make you laugh a bit, and also hear what you guise thought about Kpop.

International Kpop fans and Korean Kpop fans have very different tastes, and what’s popular in one place isn’t popular in another. So, the question for you guise that we didn’t get to see in person is this: who is your Kpop OTP, and why is it me and Junsu? Answer in the comments below!

Lastly, obligatory Kevrihanna Fangurilla post, because he nailed the role a lot better than I could have:

  1. Okay I have to ask, why no more Kpop music monday? Don’t get me wrong, I love the wanks and WTF’s, I just miss it. I guess I dont want to beg them to bring it back if they don’t want to, I just want to know why. I am just assuming that they just stopped enjoying making music monday’s and thats why they stopped. But I don’t like to assume. So I thought I would as fellow nasty’s if maybe there was a reason. Either way I still love eat your kimchi!

  10. Can we talk about how GORGEOUS the girl with red hair and a superhero shirt is?
    And yes I thought if Conchita Wurst immediately.

  11. Yeah, I imagine doing that voice for any period of time would KILL your vocal chords. Egad~~

    I see I’m not the only one who thought that, when bearded, Fangurilla looks like Conchita Wurst. Can we get a Fangurilla rendition of “Rise Like A Phoenix”? ^_-

  13. Yunho and Changmin (“homin”) from TVXQ is my k-pop OTP. Even as just a platonic bromance, it’s the best damn bromance I’ve ever seen!

  14. Oh Seungrina and Junsu are endgame! :D

    Seriously though Simon, that was pure awesomeness!!!

  16. Simon, you did a really great job! Your nerves did not show at all. Thank you for going through that suffering with your voice. All of us really appreciate it because it makes us laugh so much. Take care of yourself! :)

  18. Fangurilla needs a glass of water!
    But seriously. This was awesome!

    Quick question. You said in the Youtube comments that you weren’t going back to the old style KMM’s anymore. What is the reason for that?

  19. Simon, really impressed with your Fangurilla live performance!! You’re a natural! Kudos from the UK!

  20. That was so epically awesome. My favorite was in the bloopers when Simon forgot his lines then realized he’d written them on his card. I don’t usually pair anyone together, but Fangurilla and Junsu may be the perfect pairing ;)

  21. omg the comic dress that one of the girls was wearing <3

  22. I noticed that Simon says Okay an awful lot XD

    • Not that there is anything wrong with that, of course :P It’s just something I noticed.
      Anyhow, I watched some parts during Omona, but you already had enough of an audience so I wandered off! Preeettyy awesome tho!

  24. MAD props to you Simon! Doing something like that is tough.

    Also, could you guys elaborate on the different tastes that domestic and international KPOP fans have? I’m super interested in that!

  25. Still lauhging at Kevin! ^3^

    But seriously I feel the pain in your throat… I like to talk/ sing with chipmunk voice and oh dear it hurts after awhile! I also approve your ability to be front of people playing fangurilla – My skin becomes red and talk very garbled when I have an audience. *.*

    ~ Good job! :3 ~

  26. This was too funny. I really do love Fangurilla, and it’s fun to see other people sorta reacting to her. Although I do feel for you Simon, it has to be intimidating and then having to do that voice.
    For OTP? I’m torn between Taohun and Xiuhan because it really seems like they’re actually dating

  27. Best Kpop OTP?

    GTOP hands down!

  28. I didn’t realise how much I’d missed Fangurilla until I saw Kevrianna? (Kevrihana?) last week. Kevin did a great job (and seriously, why does he look so good in a wig?) but it’s awesome seeing Fangurilla unleashed in Europe. Lovely tutu skirt, Simon <3

  30. LOL, you are the best for doing this out in public.
    When you forgot your line and realized you had written it on the back of your card, good job. xD

    My OTP (other than you and Junsu of course) has to be Chunji and L.Joe from Teen Top. Ship them so hard, haha.

  31. Dear Fangurilla did anyone ever tell you, that here, in the european lands, your long lost Conchita can be found?

  32. My favorite question 100% “who is your OTP and why is it me and Junsu”. I heard it when you said it there at Hallyucon and it’s made me crack up ever since. :’)

  33. hahaha… we should be sleeping but we are laughing at this.

  34. Oh Simon! I felt so bad for you, you seemed to have a start of a really bad cold. But I can assure you we all laughed a lot (sorry for the lols when you were coughing too)

  36. Nice Video, well done Simon!
    And a question to the German Nasties: Don’t you think that Fangurilla is secretly Conchita Wurst’s little sister? haha

  37. LOL! I love your new outfit Fangurilla, it really shows off your girly side! You need a strong floral print to play off the sparkly beret and glossy beard! And don’t worry raising your arms and showing off your armpit hair, that is the mark of a true woman! Au naturaaaaaal! XD

    Perhaps it would have been less butterfly inducing if Fangurilla sat and had her own nighttime tv talkshow like in KMM rather than standing in the middle of a crowd. Good job editing all those clips together, the order kept it interesting.

    Next time:Fangurilla vs. Sailor Stompy, who will win? XD

    Cyber_3 – Oh Simon! You can’t be stopped! LOL!

  39. That was pure awesomeness. Fangurilla as a character is hilarious, and even cooler that you got to do her in public. That takes a lot of guts to dress up in populated areas. Next we need a video of Fangurilla and Kevrihanna together debating over who’s the biggest fan :p
