K.Will’s Thank You Speech

January 8, 2013

The Eat Your Kimchi Awards came out at the beginning of January, and we’re really quite happy with them. We put a lot of work into setting up the awards, the Epik Nasties put in tons of hours in setting them up as well, and after we filmed for nearly three days and edited for two, we put up something we really liked. We’re happy to say that some of the winners of the EYKAs were happy as well. U-Kiss won the Best Male Band of 2012 award, to which Kevin Tweeted

To top that, though, we actually got a video from K.Will thanking you all for voting in “Please Don’t” as well. AMAZING! K.Will’s video definitely deserved it. If you haven’t seen the awesomeness of that video yet, check it out here:

It would have been great to have K.Will stop by the studio, but everyone’s got such busy schedules lately, and we also let his label know pretty late (OUR BAD!). We’re happy, though, that K.Will was happy with winning the award. Woohoo! Also, make sure to vote in his next music video when it comes out, and we might just have him in the studio to talk about the video. OR, even better, we’d love to have him act in a skit with us. OOOH that’d be awesome.

More importantly, we’re just happy that artists and labels are paying attention to our Kpop Music Mondays and to what you guise are interested in. That video got a lot of support from you. Starship Entertainment – which is also the label for Sistar whom we interviewed a while ago as well – sees that you liked the video a lot, and are getting a better idea of what the international crowds are interested in. Thanks guise!

Anyhow, the video’s awesome and the song’s awesome as well. Make sure you check out the album on iTunes or pick it up at YesAsia. And hopefully we can see K.Will in the Eatyourkimchi Nasty studio when his next video comes out! Woohoo! K.Will’s will be checking out this video as well, so make sure you give him your support in the comments, because – really – that video was pretty damned awesome, and such a fresh idea for a Kpop video.

  6. omg he is such a sweetheart. It was so nice of him to do this! I love how he mentioned specific things about you guys, like wanting to visit the Eat Your Kimchi studio and wanting to be reviewed on music mondays. It shows that he actually watches your videos and it makes his message much more personal and sincere. I will definitely vote for his next music video for music mondays!

  7. Awwwww, he was practically gushing!!! I was sooooooooo happy this video won too, I voted like 10 times, haha. I’m so proud to have voted for him, and I can’t wait to see his interview with EYK!!!!!!!!!! K.Will, fighting!!! XD

  8. “Also, make sure to vote in his next music video when it comes out, and we might just have him in the studio to talk about the video. OR, even better, we’d love to have him act in a skit with us. OOOH that’d be awesome.” OMFG YES. Fangirling so hard.

    I love how he seems to be really sweet and sincere. His smile made me smile, and I don’t smile often (?)

  9. That was so sweet of K.Will! I really loved the MV, a lot of my friends are gay or bisexual and they always complain about how love songs are always shown as only heterosexual so when I showed them this (mind you they don’t like kpop) i was happy that they liked it!

  10. That was so cool, I can’t wait for the artist to start going to the studio, This is how I have been able to really follow KPOP and for me to be in Colorado and be fan of KWILL his album is great , every song is worth hearing, ( Just to let you know I am a massage therapist with my own studio in Boulder and I play KWILL for CLIENTS and they love it lol ) LOVE THIS GUY.

  13. :D OMO!!! So nice to see a (probably very busy) artist taking the time to do that kind of thankful act! Love K.Will Since that song came out as an MV. Really respect him very much ! Thanks for your hard work EYK, I really LUV you guise! Wish you a successfull year of 2013! Big HUG from Canada :D Nasties Fighting! <3

  14. OMG this is so AMAZING!! Can’t wait for a KPOP Music Monday wit K.Will *.*
    and I think it is really great that EYK is SO popular with idols and the Entertainments…maybe one day you will check the English for future songs ;)

  15. It’s the little things like his video that really make the Nasties love these artists. I don’t know, i just makes me feel closer to these artists and shows that they really care about the international fans. Just like U-Kiss. While I’m not a KissMe (I think their songs are good though), I absolutely love U-Kiss because they have showed so much love to EYK and the Nasties.

    I’m excited that you guys are getting more and more recognition from artists and their companies. It really makes me look forward to what they future will bring for you guys.

  16. Like many others, I was fangasming all over this video – it just makes K.Will look all the more awesome! xD
    Also, it is really cool and amazing that Kpop artists and labels are taking interest in you guys – congratulations!

  17. This was such a wonderful surprise to wake up to this morning. I love how gracious and honored K.Will is by winning the fans vote for Best Plot. He is one of my favorite singers, and I love that his video Please Don’t trolled everyone. I went around showing my friends and family, they all reacted the same to the ending.

    I’m also AMAZINGLY PROUD of the notice that EYK is getting. Artists and labels are recognizing that you guys are a voice, an outlet and an ear to international fans. Even if a song isn’t reviewed for KMM just by being on the EYK charts allows new fans to find other Kpop artists out there. You help expand fans views beyond their usual biases, as I know truly happened with K.Will’s Please Don’t. I hope he receives even more love from EYK fans and international fans.

    Now a mini spazz. OMG HE READ FANS COMMENTS!!!! This is why I’m always curtious and respectful when I leave comments here or anywhere. You honestly never know who is reading comments. Plus, that’s what my momma taught me.

    The more artists that have said they’ve seen your videos, the more aware it is how many artist know about you guys. I do love this blog because I honestly feel for the most part fans are the most respectful here and demand the same respect from those who may become disrespectful. LOVE YOU GUYS!

    • I’m gonna use that in my moderating tactics from now on. “So-And-So could be reading the comments!! So STOP SPAMMING and BE RESPECTFUL!!” xD

  26. I already consider K.Will’s Please Don’t as one of my favorite songs of 2012, but admittedly I haven’t yet listened to the rest of his album. After seeing this lovely thank you video, I am definitely going to check out the other songs on his album. He’s also just secured my vote for Kpop Music Monday when his next MV is released. ^^ I truly appreciate that he took the time to make this video.

    It is wonderful to see more Kpop artists becoming aware of Eat Your Kimchi and the possibilities it presents for interaction with their international fans. Eat Your Kimchi is also a great way for Kpop artists to gain international exposure. I can’t even count the number of times I have discovered a new song through the EYK charts or one of Simon and Martina’s videos and then gone on to support the artist by buying their music.

    Here’s to hoping that we’ll see many Korean artists in the Eat Your Kimchi Studio this coming year!

    Side note: For anyone who hasn’t seen it, I recommend watching K.Will’s performance from the MAMAs because it was fantastic.

    • Yes, I’m one of the Epik Nasties. I didn’t know that he did a collaboration with Epik High! Thanks for letting me know, as well as for the other recommendations. ^^

  31. It is really awesome that K.Will and UKiss actually were happy about learning that they had won an EYK award and that K.Will spent the time to send a video in. Little personal touches like that will make him very popular with the Nasty crowd. Especially if he keeps being awesome and releasing videos as impact full as ‘Please Don’t’. I also love his live performances. His collab with B.O.B at the MAMAs was very good and I had made the comment at that time that he could really cross over and do some English stuff like Seven and Junsu have done.

    I am also really proud of EYK for getting recognized by the artists themselves. You give us a window into Korea and Korean culture that we would not be able to have otherwise. I am really grateful that I am a part of the team.

  39. I’m soooooooooooo happy right now :D I LOVE K.Will and his music and this MV and his other MVs and his live performances and kferkgvrhegvilllll

    I remember when Please Don’t was on the charts, I did absolutely everything in my power to try and get it to the top spot (I was happy when it made it to the top ten) and I kept voting for it every day until it disappeared… I was so sad it didn’t even get mentioned because it had such a big effect on me and one of my friends who doesn’t even listen to k-pop absolutely loved it… But then EYK gave a bunch of k-pop MVs another chance with the EYK awards and I was so happy that K.Will won by a lot and they talked about it! Now K.Will has even acknowledged it! And seeing all these supporting comments now… just so happy… Thank you S&M :) And yes, his next MV must get in and we must have a KMM featuring K.Will! xD

  46. I almost started screaming in the middle of class when I saw this. “Please Don’t” is an amazing video and K.will is such a fantastic artist, I really want for his music to be more acknowledged! He really really deserves it, and that so much more when he actually went ahead to thank everyone like this. It’s awesome! It feels great to actually know that the artists knows people abroad love them too!
    I literally think I’ll faint if you guys get him to take part of a K-pop music monday, I swear. And I won’t even meet him, but it’ll feel like…. SO CLOSE.

      • Completely agree with both of you – you guys said exactly what I felt. Also so glad that studios are taking note of EYK and appreciating what they do. As a UK fan they really opened up the whole Kpop scene and make it very accessible to find new artists and songs. I’ve brought tons of albums due entirely to listening to songs/reviews by Simon and Martina from Park Ji Yoon to U Kiss that I wouldn’t even know existed if not for coming here. And because K Will is so lovely I think I’ll just go check out his album now!
