Japan Invites Simon and Martina!

Woohoo!

So, this is the announcement that we were hinting at before for Music Monday. We might not be able to do a Music Monday this week because WE ARE IN JAPAN!!! AHH! We’re not here for vacation. We’re here for a project, and – in fact – we’re not allowed to talk about it until tomorrow, but we’re publishing this video today so you can at least know what’s up, and why we didn’t put up a WANK for today. Sorry guise! Since this isn’t Wonderful Adventure Now Korea, we’re trying to think of a new name. We’ve been invited here, so we’re thinking Japan Invites Simon/Martina. Not sure how that works, though. It doesn’t really flow right…

Anyhow, PEOPLE OF JAPAN! How many of you are out there? I know our Japanese demographic is rather small, compared to other Asian countries, but if you’re there, we’d love to meet up! We’re not sure if we can, though! We’re asking the project coordinators for a day in which we can schedule a meet-up of sorts. Hopefully we’re not working every day! We’ll see. What we are pretty darned sure about, though, is that we will be in Harajuku this Sunday. We’re still working out the details, but we should be filming something there. If you’re in the area, hopefully we can see you there and say hi! Woohoo!

Side note: Nu’est fans!!!!! Is this curse ever going to lift? Last time we were supposed to review you…AND WE WENT TO JAPAN!!! What are the odds, right? I swear, we didn’t plan it this way. This event in Japan was set in motion for a LONG time now, before we had any clue about Nu’est’s comeback. When we heard that Nu’est was making a comeback we were like “yeah, it figures.” Ah! So sorry! Depending on how busy we are on Sunday, we’ll see if we can film a Music Monday if you or B.A.P. or SHINee or whoever wins. We still don’t know the details for Sunday, though. We should be there from 10AM or so, but it could be one hour or it could be ten hours. We’ll keep you posted!

Otherwise, since we’re not going to be putting up any of our regular segments, we plan on posting random vloggy stuff in Japan like we did in this video. It shouldn’t be too long, nor will it be of decent quality. We’ll just point at stuff and talk about it on our iPhones. Sorry if it looks crappier than usual! But this kinda brings us back to our roots of when we first came to Korea and did the same kinda thing. Only, hopefully this time we won’t be as rambling…

Anyhow, we gotta get back to planning for something for tomorrow, which is when we’ll be able to announce the reason why we’re here. We have an important meeting to plan for and we’re nervous. We’re not good at speaking in front of others for important things. We just know how to goof off on camera. Ah! THE PRESSURE!

Ok, that’s it for now. We hope you like these vids we’ll be doing for the next 11 days or so! If you have any places to suggest for us to go in Japan, please let us know! We’re also working on the interviews in the background while we’re here, and you might see them pop up randomly one day in your subscription box while we’re here!

And one last thing: if you like the opening splash screen, you might notice the pictures of us from our About Us page, which were drawn by Deborah over at Tumblr. Check out her page and give her lots of love for her awesome work!

  1. Hi there, thanks for the info. They already noticed it and in the subsequent videos in this series ( there are quite a few) they changed it ( as it was a complete slip up on their part) and apologized for it or any offense caused. They could not change it on this video however as that would mean deleting it altogether and uploading an edited version. Again thanks for trying to inform them of this mistake in such a nice manner.

    cheers!

    Simon i’m with you!!! i love getting lost and confused!!! it’s actually kinda fun!!! as long as i’m with a friend of course!! if i was alone and lost i’d be totally scared and sad!!

  8. I think it’s YouTube. I noticed that all the playlist videos were really dark today, no matter what playlist it was, especially if I saw it in full screen. Like, you can still see a shadow of the image as if through a black filter. Is that what you mean?

  10. Okay I am so tired and brain dead it took me 6 minutes into the second video to realize that it was last years video. I was asking myself questions like? Is Simon puffy from the ramen from last night? Why are they eating that jelly stuff again didn’t they already do this. …..yeah I am slow nowadays….but hey what a fun flash back!

    “WE ARE IN JAPAN!!! AHH! We’re not here for vacation. We’re here for a project, and – in fact – we’re not allowed to talk about it until tomorrow, but we’re publishing this video today so you can at least know what’s up, and why we didn’t put up a WANK for today. Sorry guise!” WOOT!! ^O^ *ah the feeling of going so bad to Japan is coming back。。。なつかしい…8>* Thank you for keeping us posted and don’t worry about guise. this video could also do.^^

    ” It shouldn’t be too long, nor will it be of decent quality.” I think it looks more “adventury” that way :))

    “We have an important meeting to plan for and we’re nervous. We’re not good at speaking in front of others for important things. We just know how to goof off on camera. Ah! THE PRESSURE!” > . < Don't worry! You'll do great!

  16. Japan! I’ve been subscribed and watching your videos for a few months now, and I’m finally commenting on something! I actually got casually into kpop while I was in Japan. (Host mother LOVES TVXQ & Changmin and a girl I went with is an ELF). One thing I really fell in love with in Japan that I think everyone should try is grilled eel in Miyajima/Itsukushima. (Please not boiled eel!) I don’t remember the restaurant, but it was amazingly delicious. In the Tokyo area, I really thought Asakusa was beautiful. Also, if you get a picture of yourselves in front of the Harajuku condomania, my week will be made. Though it’s probably not an appropriate location for your website, I guess…

  25. Why does this have downvotes? It’s pretty true – back in the day anwyay. I haven’t sensed much hostility in those Asian countries these days, with the exception of South Korea maybe >.> (not sure cos I haven’t been there, but from how people react to EYK’s comments….)

    If S&M want to stay politically correct, perhaps changing the image in the next video to Mt. Fuji with cherry blossoms might be a good idea? Just to stay on the safe side. :)

    But otherwise, I don’t think it’s a problem – most people won’t notice.

    • yep! U-KISS are there promoting at the moment, all 7 of them!
      i think that Martina and Simon are in Japan for another reason (if not, why would it take more than 10 days?), but still… it would be really great if they could meet them.

But yeah, L.O.V.E.s wouldn’t even care if the KMM was just an iphone video of you guys talking about it if NU’EST won/got picked by you guys. We just want YOU to review it. The fancy stuff isn’t as important. :D

  40. This is so not fair! I wish I knew you were coming! I could have fled the frozen confines of the Northern Island and gone to a fan meet up. Or you know, volunteered to show you around and translate, for FREE. T____T Most of the nerdy stuff has already been mentioned but for straight up Japanese culture there’s Asakusa and the awesome rickshaw drivers, Meiji Shrine in Harajuku (Where you will happen to be on Sunday) is pretty (but much better during the summer. Did no one think of this when they planned this mysterious event? February in Japan is uhm…not nearly as pretty as April.) There’s kabuki in Ginza, Shimbashi and Asakusa (really. Just go to Asakusa. It’s gorgeous and the closest you’ll get to that ‘old japan’ feeling in Tokyo). As for niche fashion shopping, Harajuku, Shibuya and Shinjuku are were it’s at.
    I’m seriously bummed I can’t make it down to meet you guys. Ah well! Have a great time and 日本へようこそ!よこそ!

  42. has anyone come to the conclusion that maybe Simon and Martina are going to interview idk maybe 2PM?! Cus they made a Japanese comeback like a day ago and are very much in the Japanese scene. I also know that Simon loves 2PM, not as much as B2st, lol but he is still a big fan of them, and once they did interview Nichkhun. So my strong guess is that they might want to interview the whole band now! HOTTEST’S HERE’S HOPING!!!

  43. I am one of your Japanese demographics! I would love to be able to go to a meet up up with you guys!! I’ll definitely be looking for you guys in Harajuku! I studied the history of Harajuku and it’s fashion in my undergrad, soooo if you guys need at guide or anything ;-)

I’m sure there’s just as many good-looking nuclear physicists out there….. *shifty eyes*

    I just tweeted you this, but I think you should know there’s a Ramen Museum in Yokohama, and it’s the best thing ever. You can order like small portions of ramen from different regions of Japan, and they’re all delicious!
    When I went, by the time I left the museum, I didn’t even want to see pictures of food without feeling like I was going to implode. It was all worth it though.

    • This! I can so see it happening if only for the fact that they are probably both super busy. But then again, when they first met they had caught the guys during one of those periods where all they were doing was waiting. I wonder where exactly UKiss is right now in Japan. I am so excited to see AJ back with them.
