K.Will Interview and Miscellaneous Thoughts

Hurrah! We got the chance to sit down with K.Will and interview him!. Here’s the video, in all it’s glory! We’ve been talking about this interview a lot over the past week. We made an announcement video for it, hinted at it in the KpopCharts Update, and mentioned it in our Music Monday on K.Will’s “Love Blossom” as well. This definitely seems like K.Will week and we sure have been hearing his newest song “Love Blossom” being played all around Seoul.

Well, the teasing is now over. Here’s our interview with K.Will! He came over to the studio on Friday night, answered some questions, and took some pictures with us. Woot! We were really lucky to have him stop by, since he JUST released his new song, and is surely going all over the place for his promotions. I like the idea of K.Will stopping by the studio as part of the promotional circuit, by the way. Maybe one day every band will stop by when they’re promoting? That’d be pretty freaking cool!

Also, Martina feels really disappointed about this interview because she was really sick that day. Something she ate did NOT go over well…I think it was the shrimp noodle soup she had. We weren’t going to cancel the interview but she just didn’t feel her normal energetic self but she tried to be as chipper as possible! If you noticed that she seemed less energetic than usual, that’s why. My sweet wife is such a trooper!

These interviews do take a while to edit, though, because there’s so much footage to go through, usually. It’s not just a matter of “film video upload video boom!” We gotta cut around things here and there, and make this video look good. K.Will doesn’t speak a lot of English, so Soo Zee was on the side translating. Putting up hard subs isn’t a breeze, either. Also, we’re not complaining here, we just know that a lot of people are like “Y U NO POST VIDEO RIGHT AWAY!” It’s because a lot of work has to go into making the final product :D

Here’s how it looks behind the camera:

K Will Interview Behind the Scenes

Oh! And some of you might be a bit confused by the intro sequence. We found his promotional video for “Love Blossom” to be hilarious, and wanted to recreate it. Here it is, if you haven’t seen it:

Ha! Now THAT’S a teaser. You get to hear some of the song and get some lols out of it. Super effective, in my opinion, as opposed to other teasers which we shall not name but I’m sure you’ll think we’re talking about though we might not be thinking about the teaser you’re thinking about. Oooh you so sneaky!

Lastly, we’re sorry if we didn’t pick your question and it didn’t get answered for the interview. We do scour through all of your suggestions, pick the top rated ones, and then send a whole slew of them in to the management to approve, so they get the final say in what we can talk about in the interview. Some of you had awesome questions, but we just couldn’t get them all in!

K.Will “Love Blossom” Signed CD Giveaway!

We had K.Will sign some CDs so we can give them away to you guise! It’s what we do for all of our interviews, and this is no different. It was awesome timing that K.Will got voted in for Music Monday since we were able to give away one for our Music Monday on K.Will’s “Love Blossom”. We’re giving away two more for this interview. And they have been signed all in different colours! OooOOooOooOH! We kept the one signed in blue, cause we love blue. Woot! If you want to win, here’s what you gotta do!

So, we’ll just tease you by saying maybe you’ll see the Spudgy, maybe you won’t :D

  3. What I like the most is the voice (kind of an obvious choice), specially that the voice goes like up-down and up (whatever that’s called…). That makes the songs so catchy ^_^ And what I usually like about groups with several members is that the combination och many different voices sounds so good, but K.Will somehow menages so well by himself. It’s impressive :D

  4. What I like about K.Will is he isn’t afraid to try new and interesting music video themes. His mv’s are unique and entertaining and he also seems like a really awesome guy :D

  6. Thank you so so much for the K- Will interview! He is really handsome & beautiful man. I really love ballads and his voice really really nice and I adore it so much! I have to say all the songs are really good! I absolutely love his song. He never dissapoints me with his songs every time a new song comes out. The whole album is amazing! Love the Mellow beat another Successful song, love love love it :-) His fabulous voice of course. His voice is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever heard! I love the M/V. I adore the concept of his video! K.Will, you have the best videos to match the expressiveness of your wonderful voice. I have listened to at least one song of his everyday. K. Will… Beautiful voice, beautiful song, beautiful M/V! K.Will is the BEST!!! Everything about K. Will is just so perfect!!! He’s always amazing!!! Great job!!! ❤❤❤

  7. Although I’ve only learned about K.Will recently, I have to say that with every song I hear of his, I like him even more. I read comments where fans said he is so humble and funny, and I have to say that I totally agree! I’m sad to hear he has only just now been in one of his own music videos. That’s silly. :/ Love Blossom was amusing and enjoyable. It’s not like a lot of other K-Pop songs I’ve heard. A lot of the others sounds the same, very cookie-cutter, but K.Will’s was very refreshing in the way it was NOT the same as the others. It was totally unexpected (for me at least)! I love that K.Will is original, talented, and totally adorable! I’m glad you guys could do a K-Pop Music Monday on Love Blossom and interview him, otherwise I might not have heard of him~ K.Will 화이팅!

  9. My daughter who is almost 12, just loves K.Will! She was thrilled today to sit and watch this interview! Now she wants to tell you in her own words why she loves K.Will, so I’m handing her my laptop. Take it away Rachel: First of all i would love to marry K.will if i was old enough.I think K.will oppa has an amazing voice and I think he is handsome too.When I first heard I need you, I immediately fell in love.Ever since I have been a big fan of k.will oppa. So I will always support you. Saranghae K.will oppa ! Good luck on your performances.

  10. Loved the interview…K.Will is adorable as well as extremely talented.
    I think it’s a terrible shame that the *homogenous ideal beauty* of the Korean entertainment world excludes someone who is IN FACT — quite handsome. His composure/confidence and smile (AND bone-structure) all come together to make a charming, CHARMING man.
    He should be the *face* of his next video — it’s a great face. :)

    • I’m adding my complete support to this post!! Looks aren’t the most important thing about a person by any means. K Will is obviously extremely talented and clearly has a very lovely and warm personality, which are important things. However, for the records, he is also completely gorgeous to look at. I can’t comment on the Korean ideal of looks because I don’t have any experience of it but he isn’t hurting my eyes any time soon. I’d love to see him in more videos not just because he’s a nice bit of eye candy but because they are his videos and I like to see the artist that made the music being acknowledged instead of hidden. Loved everything about this interview!

  11. I love K.Will ever since I first heard his voice and it is plain fantastic how much popularity he is gained over the last two years. It was really nice to have an interview with him that we international fans can watch and it is subbed. I also found his reaction upon finding out you are married so sweet and funny.

  12. What I like most about K.Wills music, is of course, because of his superly amazing voice, and that you get a really good feeling while listening to it, and often ballady songs don’t have the kind of chorus that you can sing along with, but K.Wills songs have that :3 and he have a beautiful voice, have I said that already, well I don’t care it’s just so awesomely beautiful! LOVE It!!

  13. I don’t care what ANYONE says. K.Will is gorgeous. :D And with all do respect I think there are plenty of not-so-pretty boy artists out there but they get to be in their videos. xD I’ll continue to support him and hope he appears in his own videos. He’s so good looking ;-;

  16. About the interview: It. Was. Just. Amazing. He seemed very comfortable and I could see that Martina did her best (hope you feel better now!!). This was one of my favourite interviews made by Eatyourkimchi staff (I’m very biased here, but who cares? haha) I was laughing throughout the whole video… Thank you so so much ♥

    For the contest (youtube username sarmer914): K.Will is such a great person. It’s been a long time since his debut, and I’m so happy people outside of Korea know him more nowadays (probably thanks to his amazing song “Please don’t”). I just love his voice, it’s perfect for any kind of mood: if you’re happy, if you’re sad, if you’re bored: K.Will is there to make everything better! He is also such a funny and sweet guy. You can clearly see it in the interview, how he re-did the funny trailers with Simon and Martina, and how he answered all the questions (I really liked his answer for the shower songs and how he was surprised that Simon and Martina are married!). Also, he did an interview with HIMSELF for Loen En that is just hilarious. He never got to be in his own music videos until now, but he still seems to take it nicely. I hope we’ll see even more of him in the future! He’s my favourite korean solo artist, so again, I’m so happy to see him in the eatyourkimchi studio (and thanks again for picking my question!)

  17. I love how his music is different from the other Kpop that I have listened to, I really enjoy listening to his music and how I can listen to just his music and not feel like I am hearing the same songs over again, I also love that he is able to be a solo artist and keep up his great work as a solo, I also love how great he sounds when he sings, and how he is still really humble. I also love how he shares his talents with others too by helping them sing better.

  18. Fantastic interview. The intro was really funny and an excellent idea to put in before the start of the interview, its like a little intro before the actual interview. I laughed so hard when he asked if you saw Simon shower and didn’t know you two were married.

    I gotta say guys I am loving the quality of your videos, you put so much work into them and I really appreciate the little details I see each time. Keep up the good work!!!!

  19. Thank you for such a wonderful video. K.Will had me smiling the whole way through. I really do love that man lol, especially his smile, you know right after his voice. I loved, loved the intro and play on his teaser. It was the most ingenious teaser I’ve seen in a long time. And OMG K.Will’s face when you mention showering with Simon was priceless. I’m still laughing about it. Thanks again guys. One day I would really love to see some of the pics that come out from the marshmallow!

    Whoah guys I didn't expect you to interview him, I'm a huge fan and I'm like drooling all over my keyboard (fml, unessecary info xD ) But anyway, thanks! Oh you so nastyyy~

    P.S. Could you interview any rookie groups that are becoming popular lately? Like glam or (members of) 9muses for example? pleeease~ *spudgy eyes*

  26. I seriously believe K.Will is really talented, I didn’t give myself the opportunity to know him until I had the chance to see him in a live music show in Korea and I was quite impressed by his voice and interpretation on stage! He made me get goosebumps and I love him since that day! I love Kpop in general but I consider him as one of the good ones among all. From Mexico :)

  27. Thank you so so much for the interview! I love K.Will!! =D

    I’ve known about K.Will for a while and I liked his music videos, but I didn’t become a super big fan of his until recently. But boy, when I fell, I fell HARD. I listened to Part 1 of this album and my mind was blown with the epic that was his voice and his music. K.Will’s voice is my favorite thing about him, it is just so beautiful and he uses it so masterfully. He is so multi-talented (he can sing, dance, rap alongside Outsider and is a fantastic vocal coach!) and wonderfully humble as well. There is not an ounce of vanity in him and I wish he knew he is loved by so many people outside of Korea =D One of the things I like best about K.Will is how passionate and amazing of a performer he is. When he sings, he takes me with him. He brings to life the emotions in his music with his voice and you can see how much he loves what he does. Passion like that is something to be respected and admired and my dream is to see him in concert. But a signed CD of his that I could listen to everyday in the car would also be amazing <3

    Thank you Simon and Martina for giving us international fans a chance to see K.Will and to show how much we all love him and how much support he has! Best wishes for this round of promotions and all other future endeavors of his =D

  32. Cel

    I enjoyed the interview, but I think that Martina’s (lack??) of energy wasn’t too obvious.

    Perhaps it’s due partially to the language barrier, but K.Will seems to be more serene (vs. e.g. MFBTY) and the interview went very swimmingly.

    I look forward to your interviews more than anything! (except maybe WANKs or FAPFAPs for the nomz)
