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!

  1. K.Will is awesome and the intro of the interview was very funny xD Loved it <3 :D & it was funny, how he didn't know you two were married, thinking that you two were chingus who were very weird o.O xD

  2. I love how K. Will is so casual in the interview, like he is actually incredibly interested in what his fans have to say and suggest. He all around seems like an amazing person and has INCREDIBLE talent! (All while being humble about it.) On top of that he is strikingly handsome. Hehe ;)

  3. I love K.Will’s music because it puts a twist on the usual Kpop formula. While he does write love songs like a lot of artists, his ability to sing ballads make him stand out. I also like the fact that his music videos are heavily plot based and even then are unorthodox. StarShip, I would have to disagree about your reasoning why you haven’t put K.Will in his mv’s much but I do like how it forces people to think outside the box. Lastly, I love K.Will’s music because he sings ALONE. There’s so many idol groups that it’s a bit tiring to keep track of but there’s only one K.Will I have to care about. Hopefully coming from a non fangirl stance will also get me to stand out!

  4. I just feel like he’s a really friend-type man, but girls like Simon said, there is a chance to get out of a friend-zone! Pssst. I would slap K.Will on his bum too. If i really had a chance to do it.

  5. I love K.Will and if there was any solo artist i could see in concert it would definitely be him. its a shame that the idol industry overshadows the real gems who tend to have much more of a passion and talent for singing/performing, not that i dislike kpop but it would be nice to see people like K.Will gracing the headlines and Tv shows more often.

  6. Such an awesome and fun interview!! ^____^ I love how in the beginning you re-enacted K. Will’s teaser for “Love Blossom” :) and how he reacted when you told him you’re married :D

    Great work EYK crew!! :D

    ♥♥ ♥ ♥

  7. K.Will is just so talented and amazing, it makes me want to cry from overexposure to his perfection

  8. Hey! I found this clip on how he does “hwaiting! ” before his performances. Reminded me of the interview. It starts at the 4:18 mark. He’s such a trooper! You can do it!(*^﹏^*) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qs4YSja08ig&feature=youtube_gdata_player

  9. So since you guys got K.Will… You could get Sistar or Boyfriend too… Right? :D

  10. “We never go alone” – inspiring
    “Love Blossom” – absolute adorable, funny & charming
    “Please don’t…” – so heartbreakingly & alluringly touching

    Even K. Will’s TEASERS are so original and hilarious.

    Even just his music and professional work brings out ‘the feels’ in me and he has such a charming, lovable and admirable air to himself as an artist and individual to boot. I don’t compliment artists and them as people lightly; I sincerely love and respect K. Will as an artiste and person <3 I pray with all my heart that I'll have the chance to see him live or afford his album one day, but for now I just want to thank you guys for the AMAZING interview and chance to possibly have a signed album. <3

  11. My favorite part was when k.will had his first appearance! *Gasp* but then he forgot his lucky ring, jinxed it, and got assassinated! T.T

    Youtube: puppichu

  12. K Will is amazing, i love his music, (though i would like to see him in more videos). He is so talented and so unique and blessed by God.He is truly amazing at what he does. He’s actually very very cute, and i don’t see why he would think he’s not “gorgeous” enough to be in his own videos lol. Through his music we can all relate and understand the feeling perfectly. I can see from this interview and other interviews that he has a great personality, has a good heart, and is so sweet., I love the photo shoot!! you guys are adorable!

  13. On the sidenote, i read the blog post in a bus while travelling.. for some reason, i read the whole post with Simon’s booming DOTHRAKI MAN VOICE!!

  14. I fell in love with K.Will’s voice ever since his album “Dropping the Tears” came out. I will admit, at first I looked at the MV b/c of SNSD’s Yuri…but oh man ever since then he has become one of my favorite solo male singers OF ALL TIME!!! I ALWAYS look forward to his comeback/new songs b/c his voice is so soothing and his songs always hit me in the heart and mind (in a good way)! My favorite thing about K.Will’s music is that I never get tired of his emotional and husky voice, whether it is a sad or happy song! His voice is SOO versatile! Also, I’ve never doubted his good looks or style so I don’t know why it’s such a hot topic right now haha. He really looks like a laid-back and friendly MAN~ “I don’t need a man~I don’t need a man”-prettier-than-a-girl =P Anyways, I LOVE YOU K.WILL! KEEP UP THE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC! HWAITING~~! Lastly, thank you VERY much Simon and Martina for interviewing him even though you weren’t feeling your best! >.< I appreciate your hard work and it paid off!!! ^o^

  15. It’s hard to pick up just one thing what I love about K.Will, because he’s such an interesting, intelligent and charming person, with beautiful, soft, chocolatte voice… If I wouldn’t love Alex with my whole heart (I truly do), K.Will might be my favourite solo artist :) I love it that he doesn’t show off, he is just himself, despite the fact that he is on the music scene for so long and has been awarded many times, but he seems to be such a normal, kinda shy guy, who maybe thinks – what’s all the noise about? It’s me just singing. I love watching tv shows with him, he’s so natural, not pretending anything. And besides that, he is handsome guy. So if his company will hear out the voices of K.Will’s fans – please – put him in next music video for more than few seconds, the best would be whole music video of course. It’s a pleasure not only to listen to his awesome voice, but also to look at his charming person. ^^

    PS I really enjoyed this interview (although Clazziquai’s interview will be my No 1 forever – sorry, can’t help it ^^ ). Thank you Simon and Martina for great job (which of course you always do :) ). I was smiling all the time while watching it. And the idea with intro is fantastic! I loved the teaser for “Love Blossom” as well!

    PS2 And big big thanks that you make your guests saying “I love you” in different languages ♥ Hearing them saying “Kocham Cię / Ja Ciebie kocham” makes my heart flutter ^_^

  16. Lovin’ how polished the videos are looking (YAY LEIGH!) Also, LOVED his reaction to the shower comment. HEHEHEHE. But even more than that, he seems so sweet and down to earth. And lastly, why I likes me some K.Will. Said it on youtube (raine dichotomy), but as a musician, I really appreciate the musicianship that is SO obvious in his work. The technical finesse, phrase endings, great pitch in live performance (and tone!) He’s also got the ‘it’ factor live, which is such a draw. I LOVE live performance. Can I also mention that I think he’s wicked hot? Is that a good reason????

  17. K.will’s songs are amazing, his voice is awesome, he’s handsome too can’t believe he never appear in his videos :/ unfair!
    he’s on my most played list <3
    love from Venezuela

    thank you simon and martina for the chance ^^

  18. The Interview was just great especially when K. Will thought that you’re showering together :p ㅋㅋㅋㅋ. Thank you so much for this moment^^ K. Will I’ll suport you in whatever you’re doing! greets from Switzerland

  19. Thanks Simon for teaching him ‘Ja ciebie kocham’ I died in front of my computer when he said that ^^

  20. I wanna see the marshmallow booth photos:O

  21. Not only do I like him but I LOVE him! He has a stunning voice! It’s so calm & relaxing to listen to! He doesn’t need strong background music to make a great song, his voice alone is enough. I’d like to be able to sing like him one day & make great music. He never disappoints me with his songs. They are filled with so much emotions & passion in them. I wish you the best of luck in everything & hope promotions goes well with “Love Blossom”!! K.Will oppa is JJANG! Hwaiting~~ <33! Love from Canada!

    Loved the interview Eat Your Kimchi!! ^^~ <33 Thank you!!

  22. You know what is hot… You know what did come out… I know… Its time for my interview sequence caught me off guard. Cute and Funny ^^

  23. What I love most about K.Will is his perserverence. Despite the fact that things may be hard for him, as it always is for musicians, It’s clear just how hard he works when it comes to doing his best and putting his best face foward. Regardless of the ridiculous ‘ beauty standards’ held in korea when it comes to him not even being ‘ handsome enough ‘ to appear in his own music video, he still showed his strength through making a humorous comment about the subject to let the fans know that something like that won’t get him down that easily. Also how he says he often gets tired and lonely being a solo artist especially, he never stops working hard for everyone wle heartedly loves and supports him and his music. I love every song he releases because I feel that whenever he sings, you can truly feel the heart and soul he put into making it the way the did, no differently than a grandmother making cookies for her loved ones. K. Will has that secret ingredient that makes him one of Korea’s best artists today. Everything from his artistic and passionate music videos ( whether emotional or comical ) and his voice which seems to be that of an angel is so beautiful and filled with emotional that sometimes I feel likes crying from it, it makes him so pleasant to listen to as well as providing an inspiration for me to always do my best especially when it comes to my own dreams of becomming a singer. K. Will fighting! <3 <3 <3

    * thanks so much for the interview Simon and Martina ^^ He really is great, and as always I love that sticker booth section XD And I really cannot get over that shocked face when he discovered you guys are married! ' You've seen him in the shower?! ' Omggg

  24. I became a fan of K Will when I first heard him while watching A Love To Kill in the 7th grade (I’m in the 12th now) with his song Kkum/ Dream. His voice intrigued me with it’s raspy, husky, sexy quality to it. Oooh K Will you so nastayyy. I am so glad that you guys interviewed him. :D

  25. Martina it was seriously epic when you ran after kwill for the golden spuggy and then evily ranaway super funny

  26. Wow you guys got to post this interview up really fast! Not that I’m complaining, I’m just surprised that management was so fast this time haha. Congrats on another successful interview! K.Will seemed like a cool guy and how y’all did the intro was terrific hehe ^-^

  27. This interview was awesome ! K.Will is so adorable and talented ^u^
    and I LOVE YOU all for “Ja ciebie kocham” <3333333 (Simon you're my hero~!)
    (by the way as I said before "Kocham cie" sounds better than "Ja ciebie kocham")
    Hugs from Poland !!! <3

  28. Thank you for another awesome interview! These really help me to relate to artists and it makes their music more interesting. I had a bit of constructive “criticism” although it isn’t a complaint, just something I noticed. I may be the only one here, but I felt as though there were a tad too many camera view changes. I love how you’re branching out and trying new things and I know you’ll find your interview groove soon. Especially in interviews that have subtitles, the constant angle changes averted my gaze and disrupted my reading. I kept looking up and down from captions to switched views, and then I would miss some reading and have to rewind a bit. Perhaps save the camera switches only when the person speaking changes? Again, not really a criticism but I just wanted you to know in case it helped you perfect your new, awesome camera tricks. Also, I loved how you “stroked” K.Will with the sexy camera view up his bod in Part 1…so nasty! Love you guys and I look forward to your next posts :)

  29. I don’t even know where to begin to describe his awesomeness~.

    K. Will has one of the most incredible voices among South Korea’s group of talented and well respected musicians.
    And it’s just not my basis talking, when I force my non-kpop friends to listen
    to his songs, even they agree.His music and vocals are always very heartfelt,
    conveying the notion of romance and soul in every line. You can hear his skills
    and techniques in singing and see his dedication to music. I feel like it takes
    a lot hard work and skills for a musician and their songs to move the
    audience’s heart profoundly. I really believe that K.will has that ability. If listened
    carefully, his music might just make you sway. Woman or man. ;)
    To top it all off, he’s also one handsome,
    charming, and entertaining fellow. Honestly even though he’s quite humble, I think he’s got some hidden “nastiness~” in him. Some of concert videos shows him so sexy and witty ^^

  30. I’ve been loving K.Will’s voice ever since he sang the OST for A Love To Kill drama in 2005/2006 (?) *not very sure*, called Dream. For me, he is one of the best male OST singer until now. Even before I get obsessed with KPOP, I’ve been a loyal K-Drama and K-Movies fan, and I’ve known K.Will name long before I get to know groups like Big Bang or SNSD or Super Junior. He is really good in singing with full emotion. When he released his single ‘Present’, I was so addicted that I kept playing the song everywhere, in school, at home. Ahh and before that, he did sang an OST for Shining Inheritance drama which I also love. Not to mention the ‘I-died-laughing-watching-the-MV’ song, which is Please Don’t. I just love love love love that song so much, even my ‘not interested in KPOP’ siblings know that MV plot very well because I kept playing it on our TV. And the latest song, Love Blossom, although the MV is a bit different and unexpected, I still love the light feeling I get every time I listen to that song. And the collab song ‘White Love’ he did also makes me fall in love. In short, I really like K.Will voice and songs and I will always look forward his work. I always love Ballad songs and I feel like K.Will is one of the best ballad singer in Korea Music Scene. (well, next to Kyuhyun..hihihihi ^^) SO PLEASE PLEASE SIMON and MARTINA, LET ME HAVE THAT PRECIOUS SIGNED CD!! I WILL BE YOUR NASTY FOREVER THEN!!!!

  31. I like how his voice complements his songs since it’s so full of emotions. I like how he doesn’t do any drastic changes in is music. There’s change, just enough to be interesting, but not so big that he suddenly have dub step dance sequences.

  32. Hi!! I’ve entered all the possible entries and thought id check in on your site just in case. Yay an extra chance ? ^^ lol.

    I really am a sincere fan of K.Will and his music. I first heard “Love Is Punishment” in a Korean drama and fell in love with his vocals immediately! I had been a fan of Korean Pop for 7 years before then, but I had been exposed to only boy groups and Se7en. When I heard of K.Will I wasn’t used to Korean ballad solo artists. It was a unique experience from the norm.

    As a singer, K.Will gives us QUALITY music. Music that could be listened to without it getting old. I love his powerful vocal chords. Even though he sings ballads there’s this ‘thing’ in them that makes them just as refreshing and ‘upbeat’ as any pop song. I don’t know if that’s extactly how I woul describe it,… but yeah >.<. I think its like soul music. Moves you to sway with a rhythm that unique to your circumstance.

    (Even my sister likes his music and she was one of the ppl that called me crazy for listening to music I don't understand! Haha.)

    Thank You Simon and Martina for this opportunity and for the interview, I've been waiting for it since ur ask questions video, lol. I went crazy when I saw it on my feed! =)

    감사함니다 ♥

  33. I think K.Will is very handsome. I know by Korean standards his looks aren’t considered at the top, but even so I’m sure all his fans would like to see him appear in his music videos!

  34. I keep replaying the part where he asks, “You’ve seen him shower?” LMFAO!! his expression is just O_o’

  35. that video was awesome!! :D thanks simon and martina for this great video! :) love the oment when he realized that you are both married,he´soo cute! XD And I love his voice so much!! Probably next time K.Will you be the main star of your own MV. you have your own special charme,that we fans love soooo much! :* K.Will HWAithing!
    You got such a awesome voice,so full of emotion, always makes me cry or feel totally lucky every time you sing. :3
    also when i hear your music it makes me occasionally smile and comforts me! ^^______^^
    And Love Blossom is such a pretty song~ :) the video is so funny and phenomenal > even GACKT recommented to watch his new MV!! >__<
    thanks for your great performances and your timeless music! Can´t wait for Part 3 :P

  36. Loved it! K.Will and you guise are the best! Thanks for your hard work :)

  37. There is so much I love about K.Will! I love his amazingly beautiful voice and he is by far my favorite singer. You can ask any of my friends I am ALWAYS talking about K.Will (recently his amazing new song “Love Blossom”). Plus, not only is he beautiful on the outside but clearly he is just as beautiful on the inside. His song plots are always amazing and so unique and I can’t wait for what is to come in the future. I love you K.Will!!!!

  38. Nice interview! The married part and the ending were soo funny! =D Oh wait, the beginning was also funny ! :O oh. and the photobooth. hmm, anyhow, I really liked this interview! =D

  39. I’m digging the interviews. Very cute! I should add, I wasn’t even a KPop girl until a few weeks ago. I was strictly Kdramas. So good job EYK, you have recruited a new one.

  40. I really loved the song, and enjoyed watching the video, actually a Korean actor that I like posted on his twitter page that he’s listening to K.Will song and I was curious about it so i tried it too…it was fun watching !!! ^_^ yey, i love it !
