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!
