On Thursday we published Day 1 and 2 of our Sydney adventures. Right after we finished with the Party on the Park, we pretty much packed our bags and rushed off for our flights to Melbourne. We barely made it to the plane on time. We landed close to midnight, and then did the only thing we could logically do…EAT PANCAKES!

Oh…damn those pancakes were good.

Pretty much the entire day afterwards was spent at the KWAVE Festival. We began with a Photoshoot for YesStyle. They were sponsors for the event, and had sponsored our outfits for the event as well. Cool! So we did a photoshoot. We don’t know how to do photoshoots. We’re not sure what models do when they photoshoot. We’re not models, so we, umm, just did the same bizarre poses we usually do with people in photos, except we did them without people. We also imitated a bunch of poses from our other Photoshoot for Groove Magazine a while ago because we, again, don’t know how to work the camera. Boy are we ever awkward!

Afterwards, it was all KWAVE Festival for the rest of the night. It’s really hard to explain what happened at the festival because it’s all an emotional blur. Celebrities and entertainers are prepared for this kind of stuff. They thrive on it. They live for it. I remember reading that after every concert Beyonce does she gets a DVD of it within half an hour and rewatches it, and tries to learn how to improve for her next show. For us, we look at this footage and think “were we…were we just on stage? What were we doing on there?” It’s not something we’re comfortable with. We rewatch the footage and don’t know what to improve, because we don’t really know what we’re doing to begin with. It’s not something we prepared ourselves mentally for. Every time we meet big groups of people it always feels like the first time.

It also feels really special for us in a way that we don’t think is necessarily special for, say, musicians. For them, they’re putting on a show. They go out there on stage and entertain. People are paying for a good event. For us, we have nothing to offer. No one’s there to hear us sing Eatyourkimchi Like a Man. We’re just there to meet you guise, to say hi, and just to see the faces behind the online personas. It’s a family reunion is what it feels like, and we can’t help but feel emotional. You’re not there to be entertained. You’re just there out of kindness and love, and it’s so damned touching that I’m all emotional again just writing this.

Ok I’m gonna stop. You can see photos from the event here, in case you missed it:

On a cool note: we met Miryo in the green room at the event. We told her that we’re big fans of her music, and she told us that she watches our videos. WHHUUUUT? We didn’t even introduce ourselves. She…knows our videos? And, what’s more, her English was great! When I spoke to Ga-In a while ago, she was terrified and couldn’t even speak to me when I spoke in Korean. Maybe because of my overwhelming size and sexiness. But Miryo had no problems speaking with us. She was going out for dinner afterwards, and we were invited to come along, but we were about to go on stage, and turned down dinner with freaking Miryo of freaking Brown Eyed Girls and that’s an opportunity that’ll never happen again AGGHHH! If it was just an hour earlier! Or a day later! We would have loved to! YARGH! We got a photo with her instead. Check it out:

The day after the event we did a few interviews, which we put in the Playlist for the day. You can also see some cool pictures from the event in the AU Review, who we’ve seen a bunch of times now, and whose photo we used for the thumbnail here. They’re good people. We did an interview with them as well but it’s not up yet, I don’t think. Once it’s up you can see us talk about more stuff. We did five interviews that day. WHOA.

Otherwise, we’ve got a couple more videos from the Australia event we want to put up, namely, our FAPFAP with the Australian treats you gave us, and our free day in Melbourne in which we traveled around and did non-festival related stuff. We’re not sure when we can put it up since we’re going to Singapore in a few hours. We should probably finish packing. OH GOD! But stay tuned for more.

  1. Wow stop being so pretty Martina….just so gorgeous in these pictures!!! Oh…you too Simon… (;

  2. Martina, how long were you able to go undercover until the three Nasties spotted you?

  3. I think it does make sense, though. In one of the videos in the playlist, you talk about wanting to see/hear all the opinions that other people have (on kpop, or experiences of Korea, etc). Many of us are curious about others’ opinions, too – and your videos/commentaries are the best of the bunch (e.g. thoughtful and humorous) and that’s why so many people like them. You’re also friendly in person, which helps! :P (I didn’t make it to K-Wave, but I did run into you in the basement of QV in Melbourne. I was very awkward. I’d just like to say again: thank you so much for sharing.)

  4. Martina, if you guys ever come to Michigan, I will point you to the little cafe with the best chai latte I’ve ever had in my life!

  5. Loved the interviews, but it was weird hearing Simon’s quiet voice. I’m so used to the shouty shouty camera voice nao xD

  6. It’s interesting that you talked about being overwhelmed. I recall Sunye’s Washington speech where she said that she had the same feeling. http://youtu.be/5Exh8BlqkOU

  7. Oh Simon I love your endless Junsu bias ;) I really hope you guys get to do another interview soon, it seems so long now since the insanley wonderful uBeat interview.

  8. That awkward moment when Simon describes Jaejoong as emo the day after your friend shows you this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr3JRlbb788

  9. Australia…you so nasty!!
    Guise you totally have to have the Brown Eyed Girls in for an interview…then you could go out to dinner :D
    Also, Simon and Martina, what we love about you is that you are so real. And you’re able to bring out that realness (Is that a word?) in all the artists you talk to. I’m so much more interested in who the people in my favorite groups actually are versus just the image they portray. Much love from California! Jealous of all you lucky people getting EYK fan meets TT

  10. Wew, mission accomplished: Get in EYK video (even if it was for literally a second)

  11. I’m just half way through the k-wave interview and I have to say that I’m happy that you turned down those interview proposals. It wouldn’t be EYK if you did an interview like that – so stiff and formal, with no humour whatsoever! So even though it feels a little sad that we didn’t get to see you interacting more with kpop artists I definitely respect your decision! People can watch those kinds of interviews anytime.

  12. Heh, my name is Helen and I had clicked on a different tab for a second so when I suddenly heard Simon start saying “Helen” I was a bit freaked out. XD

  13. Also, KWave WAS AMAZING!! I’m amazed at how many Victorian Nasties alone there were (I’m also amazed at how TALL both of you are xD)! Sad that we didn’t get to chat for longer, but the experience of meeting you in the flesh is something to treasure.

  14. SooZee: “I don’t wanna be here…” *dies from aegyo again* xP

  15. Geez Martina (and Simon too) you look fabulous! I never thought yes style would have clothes for ‘busty’ women! I want, no I NEED that mint dress you’re wearing!

  16. It was amazing to see you guys in Australia :D I went to the Sydney meet and greet but just as we were at the doors, after having waited nearly 2 hours, we were told we couldn’t see you guys D; I really appreciate that you came out and saw us, even though it was only for a few minutes. It really did make my day! Every person that walked out after having seen you guys had the biggest smiles on their faces ^_^

    By the way, YOU GUYS ARE SO TALL. Simon was like a towering pillar of light amongst us. Martina IS SO PRETTY IN REAL LIFE. Cameras don’t do you guys justice XD And Soozee was ridiculously pretty too!!

  17. I loved your interview! I agree on many of the things you said. You guys seem like wise people and you seem to have seen more than us of whats going on in the kpopscene in general. Thanks for sharing your thoughts^^I’ll se you in Norway

  18. Really happy to see all that love from Australian Nasties (: you guys deserve it!

  19. hahaha~ that yesstyle horned hoodie Simon had to wear, is always shown on ad photos on the yesstyle models as part of their ‘couple clothes’!! i was actually expecting to see Martina wear the pink version!!!
    Martina you looked so pretty in that brown wig!!
    WHOA!!!!!!!!!!!!! the presents!!!!! i mean i saw your pics on instagram and stuff…but whoa there’s so much more than i thought!!

  20. Oh Martina, dressing up as a volunteer…great idea!!! Loved it hehe =)

  21. Wow, I just got tears in my eyes when you guys walked up on stage in the video. If all those people were there just to see me, I would start crying on stage from being overwhelmed.

  22. Could you tell us sg nasties what time youre gonna be down in singapore? Or what flight youre taking? I couldnt catch you the last time you were here and would love to pop down!

  23. “We’re terrible to photograph because we’re not pretty people…”

    HOG WASH!!! HOG WASH, I SAY!!! You guys are great looking, and I don’t want to hear another word about it!!

    DO YOU HEAR ME?!?!?!? /echoy reverbed crazy high pitched Joshie voice

  24. You met Myrio :O You’re so lucky! She’s the best! Looks like you had a nice time :D can’t wait to see you in Europe!
