Ok, so here’s the deal. We’ve been sitting on this for a long time and we’re SO STOKED TO TALK ABOUT THIS RIGHT NOW!

We’re going to the Google Kpop Concert! MBC is bringing Sistar, B2ST, Super Junior, Kara, TVXQ, MBLAQ, Girls’ Generation, f(x), and Wonder Girls to perform at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, and we’re gonna be there, too!

But – here’s what’s cool – we’re not going just for the sake of it or because we’re two crazy fans with thousands of dollars to blow on plane tickets there and back. Nope. Come on! We live in Korea! We can go to concerts here just fine! Fact is, we’re going to this concert on official business. We were invited by YouTube to come to the event and record some of the activity, as well as some special videos before the actual event.

The day before the actual event, we’ve got something very special lined up. So far, we’ve got MBLAQ, B2ST, Wonder Girls, and Sistar confirmed to do videos with us. There are other artists that we’re HOPEFULLY gonna be able to do things with, but everyone’s schedules are really tight. It’s not like they fly in and wander around waiting for people to film stuff with them. This took a lot of work to get set up, so we’re actually quite lucky to be able to do videos with so many artists :D

Big point of this all is where you – you awesome people you – come in: we’ve always been interested in connecting Kpop artists with their international audience, so we asked – when we’re talking on film with the Kpop idols – if we can ask some of YOUR questions as well, rather than just ours. This is your chance to get Kpop Idols to answer your questions, to talk back to you! So, leave your questions for whoever you want us to ask in the comments section below, either on this page or in the YouTube video comments. If we pick your question, then it’ll be pretty cool if you have MBLAQ say your name and Wonder Girls say where you’re from. No? At least I think it’d be cool :D

We’ve got some other surprises in store for this event, and we’re gonna be getting some pretty cool stuff, which – of course – we’d like to give back to you, our awesome viewers! We’ll be giving it, of course, to people who Subscribe to us on YouTube, Follow us on Twitter, and Like us on Facebook, because we like you more than other people :D

Otherwise, we’re not ONLY making videos before the concert. We’re gonna be attending the concert as well, and so should you! Tickets for this event are free! All you gotta to is Request Tickets online on this site on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at 7:00PM PDT. That’s it! So get on that page and start refreshing like crazy and, if you get tickets, we’ll hopefully see you there! We won’t be on stage performing any F-art songs, though, so don’t get your hopes up!

Also, just a heads up: since we’re gonna be spending Sunday and Monday at this event, there will be no Kpop Music Monday for the 21st of May. Sorry guise! We’re spending a lot of time working on these videos instead. We’ll upload our special videos for the event ASAP, so hopefully that’ll make up for our not making a Music Monday.

  6.  hmm …what question would I ask these kpop idols if I met them….

    I’ll probably faint before saying anything …but if I managed I’d
    probably ask b2st what do they think about their arab fans… since I’m
    an arab ^^ Syrian to be exact … they probably don’t know Syria exists
    so I was wondering how would they feel about having fans from countries
    they’ve never heard of.

    Thank you Simon and Martina for giving us this chance ^^ … I really LOVE you two !!

  12. To MBLAQ / Simon and Martina 
    Hello, my name is Janet I’m 16, a British fan and I live in London. I am currently undergoing my final year in secondary school and have about 14, NO 16 exams in 1 month. My first exam starts on the 22nd May and in all honestly I could use all the luck I could get. I’m under the stress of these and it’s hard knowing your not fulfilling the expectations set. If possible could you give me some advice or any motivational messages? 
    Sorry if this is too much to ask, but I could really use it. 

    Thank you for taking the time to read this, Yours sincerely, Janet.

  28. Can you ask SISTAR how do they feel about they’re sudden raise in popularity lately. Ask BEAST since they have done so many tours outside of asia how do they feel about more  international fans and non-koreans liking kpop. Oh and since hyunseung has a sub-unit with hyuna do any of the other members want to have sub-units as well Oh and do they all still sleep in one room. Could you ask mblaq if they  would like to have a world tour and oh could you ask mir just how big is his manga collection and what is his favorite manga. Oh and can you ask lee joon does he want act in movies more lately. my question for the wonder girls is do they feel fully prepared to enter the U.S. market. thank you

  30. To B2ST and MBLAQ (but really can be for anyone~ ^^)

    “Do you find the language barriers with international fans frustrating sometimes? Or does it inspire you to find other ways to interact on the same level you would with languages/fans you fully understand?”

    I’m curious to know ’cause I know from my experience sometimes you just really wish you could speak properly in Korean (good example would be Twitter: sometimes you really wish you could join the conversation or show support. Makes you wonder if they notice mentions in other languages, it must be hard for languages they don’t understand). I know that kind of experience has inspired me to understand and learn Korean and Korean culture~ So it’d be interesting to know how they handle the fans they might not fully understand but still want them to know they’re appreciated~ ^_^

    Hey Simon, Martina, and Spudgy!

    I was wondering if there was anything you could do to help me. I tried to get tickets to the free kpop show in Mountain view, and I had the website up all day and when seven o clock came around I refreshed, it said unavailable. I expected this, so I kept refreshing. I kept refreshing for 4 hours trying to get tickets. I made it to the page twice and clicked get tickets and it said unavailable. I don’t know if you can help but I was hoping you could.

  35. You two are so lucky!  And absolutely awesome :D  Hope you have a great time there!

    ANY: If you were stuck on a desert island with one person, something you couldn’t live without, your favourite song and your favourite food, what/who would each of these be and why?
    MBLAQ: If they didn’t have their current careers, what careers would they have liked?

    If they remade one of their songs in English, which one would they choose to do for the international fans?

    Any chance they’ll tour in Europe (and come to England)?

    Which country surprises them most for having international fans?

    If they could choose anywhere in the world to go and promote, where would it be and why?

    Are there any foreign languages they’d love to make an album in?

    MBLAQ and BEAST: if they could dance with any female celebrity, who would it be?

    I’m usually known as Kirky.  I’m from the UK.  And on behalf of the UK K-pop fans, I’d like to say we’re looking forward to seeing some of the artists in London this coming Decemeber, and keep giving the world awesome music!  (Please tell all the groups that.  Especially TVXQ, if you see them.  Their music helped me to survive the first few months of living abroad on my own as a teenager.)

    Thank you!

  36. Hi I’m from the Netherlands and I have a question for MBLAQ

  39. Simon and Martina this question is aimed at MBLAQ and BEAST because they are my two favourite groups last year in november they both came to Sydney for the 2011 kpop festival. I want to know if they enjoyed themselves and would they consider coming back in the future. Also if you manage to interview Suju could you ask them if they were disappointed their super show 4 was cancelled for Sydney?
