DUN DUN DUN. If you’ve already watched the video you’ll already know that, yes, we’re changing up Kpop Music Mondays (KMM). After a doing a whole lot of KMM and growing and changing our structure, we’ve finally decided it’s time to switch things up a bit. We’re feeling too constrained by the format that we ourselves invented a couple years ago, so it’s time to mix it up and let our freedom fly. We’d still like to include our characters and some skits in these KMM, but only when we really feel inspired. The same for the English rating: if there is something noteworthy to talk about, we’ll include it, but if not, no talking! I think this format will be more like our TL;DR segments on our bonus channel where we are able to bounce our thoughts back and forth with each other.
Normally, when we prepare for Kpop Music Mondays we watch the videos on our own and we come up with our own opinions, which sometimes match each other and sometimes are totally different, and then we have to someone bring these two different thoughts together in a cohesive manner and divide our thoughts so that Kpop Music Monday isn’t 20 minutes long. This results in someone’s opinion inevitably being left out or barely mentioned, and sometimes we feel frustrated when we read comments that match one of our opinions exactly…but we had to leave it out. I think this new format will really allow us to share both our perspectives equally!
Also, we’d like to be able to have Kpop Music Monday as a music segment about kpop in general. Once in a while we want to be able to do a creatively different video about kpop, kind of like the video we did for the Ish list on the Top 7 English Covers Done By Kpop Artists, or a random parody, or something else that we’re inspired by. Let Kpop Music Monday be like Saturday Night Live, almost, you know? We often come up with random videos that we want to do, but just don’t have the time to do. So why not let those random videos be a Kpop Music Monday?
So, that’s basically it. We’re going to shuffle things around. We’ll wax nostalgic from time to time and maybe go back to the old format, who knows! We just felt like it was time for a change.
Anyhow, enough of that. This blog post should be about G-Dragon’s video as well. Here it is, if you haven’t seen it yet:
So, good thing about our new format is that we’re not cutting out anything that we say anymore. Bad thing is that we said a lot of what we wanted to say in the video. BUUUT, there were some scenes that we cut out, along with the bloopers, which you can find in our blooper roll/deleted scene section here. Booya!
So, yeah! Let us know your thoughts. We’re hoping this format is more conversational, and we can feel like we’re chatting more, rather than just pushing out our thoughts in video. Does that make sense? I’m not sure. Otherwise, get ready for weird videos from time to time. OOOHHH, and lastly, tomorrow we’re making a rather big announcement. Make sure you stay tuned. You’re gonna like this one :D
