I’m very very good! And we’re back with Music Monday! It’s been so long! Look at us talking about Kpop videos again! Whoa. It’s been quite a while, since we’ve been out of the country for most of the month. We were shocked ourselves when we stood in front of the camera. Felt so…nostalgic!

Anyhow, if you haven’t seen it yet, check out Block B’s “Very Good” here:

 

Holy smokes was that ever fun! Gotta say, we weren’t fond of their first track, “Be the Light.” It was very very meh. I think you guise know our taste in music by now: big, explosive, bombastic, techno, disco, dancey, fun. Give me Mr. Simple. Fantastic Baby. I Am the Best. Roly Poly. Gentleman. Sherlock. Those are the songs that make us love Kpop. For other Kpop songs, we’re not fond of too much singing, nothing resembling ballads, nothing serious, nothing cutesy, and nothing too disjointed. My point is: this song and video are exactly what we want in Kpop. Let me shout along with something. Keep the energy up. Don’t spend all of your time in the video like you’re posing for a magazine. Have fun. Make me laugh. Block B’s great at that, as they were with Nilili Mambo. Block B: I like you guise.

Remember a while ago when we did our interview with them? They were hilarious. A few months later we posted our deleted footage from that interview, in which we saw Block B’s Derp Faces. Why wasn’t that included in the original video? Because their label didn’t want it in. They didn’t like how it portrayed Block B. But that’s how they are! They’re fun and silly! But the label didn’t like it. Now Block B’s not with the label anymore, so we could release the footage. YAY! Hopefully, if we get something set up with Block B again, we could have some more fun with them, and their new label will have more of an understanding of what makes them so fun and charming.

Now, for more matters of other stuff:

I’m Not Ugly, I’m Exotic: The Shirt!

I know people have been asking for this for a while, ever since we opened the store. We’ve been working on a design for so long. SO LONG GUISE! But we finally have one that we’re happy with, that captures the true essence of Fangurilla, we think. Soo Zee designed this. Check it out in the shop and let us know what you think :D

YouTube Music Awards

You might have seen the hype starting to build around the YouTube Music Awards, brought to you by Kia. It’s a 5 country event, and it’s starting off in Seoul! There’s an awesome lineup…AND WE’RE GONNA BE THERE! AYEEE! There’s some more stuff in store as well leading up to the event. Some of those things might interfere with our regular filming schedule, but it’ll be worth it. I’ll just leave this here:

Also, voting for the event is now open. Vote for Girls Generation for Video of the Year, and Psy for Artist of the Year. Let’s make Kpop the most prominent part of the awards. This ain’t gonna be the YouTube Music Awards, but the YouTube Kpop Awards. Let’s put all the other bands to shame. Justin Who? I thought so!
