Our Interview with Block B

Yes! Finally! Our interview with Block B is up! Oh God! This took forever to publish, but it’s finally here. And we’re giving away a few Autographed Block B CDs to make up for it. You’ll need to know the Nillili Mambo video if you want to win, so check it out if you haven’t seen it already:

But first, let’s talk about the interview and things you don’t see in this video:

1) This was one of the most fun interview experiences we’ve had with Kpop idols. Block B are not only outgoing and just hilarious, they’re also very candid. We’ve found that in our interviews idols oftentimes give very safe generic answers to questions, but Block B was a lot more forward than what we’re used to, and we totally respect them for it. Now I know a lot of you were harassing us online, “where is the interview!?? Where is it!!! GAHHHHH” One of the reasons the interview took so long for us to publish is because we can’t just put up whatever we want for ANY of our interviews. After we film something with any kpop group, we always give the management team a rough copy and let them approve it. This just took a lot longer to approve than usual. So, we had to take out some answers, some TOTALLY AWESOME ANSWERS WE’LL NEVER TELL YOU ABOUT. Oooh you’d like to know all of the juicy details, wouldn’t you? Well, basically they just said that Eat Your Kimchi is the best site in the universe and you Nasties are awesome. Well, they didn’t say that. Moving on…

2) We had a hilarious skit with Block B, inspired by you guise. Well, inspired by Tumblr. We’ve seen lots of gifs and pics of Block B making funny faces. We did a skit in which we had a funny face showdown. Block B kicked our asses in it. P.O in particular had an amazingly deep face. Problem is, we had to cut out that skit, because, well, it was just too silly for the management to handle. We’re pretty upset about it because it was gold, GOLD I SAY! Buuuut these are some of the problems we face with cultural differences between Korean ideas of how an interview should be and North American ideas. I think our goal is to show famous people acting down to earth and fun, not being afraid to make silly faces on camera and act out of their normal roles, but I guess not everyone agrees with us. I suppose it’s better in the long run, because we can’t have footage of Block B beating us at funny face making. WE REMAIN THE UNDISPUTED CHAMPIONS!

3) We cut out another skit. We proposed to Zico on behalf of one of you who begged us on Twitter to do so. We got down on one knee, asked him using your Twitter name, and we got his answer! Well, you’ll never know what that answer was, because we had to cut that out as well. No skits were approved for this video. Sorry! I guess now you’ll never know about your beautiful future with Zico, with all the babies you’d have, the lovely life you’d live. But then again, maybe he rejected you. ENTER SUSPENSE MUSIC!

  1. Isn’t that obvious? To confuse the other band, they give the diamonds to Jaehyo wich have the power to make everything he touches invisible, so Jaehyo take the diamonds and make him invisible. The problem is that they’re forgot that… so, they drop it in the end with the open suitcase. But really they’re been always there (?)

  2. First of all, thanks for putting in so much effort in the editing! (plus the interview itself!) too bad the skits weren’t allowed, though! would’ve been great to see you guys face off. anyhoooo, here’s my theory on the diamonds:

    after Zico left the diamonds with Jaehyo, the girl Jaehyo was with convinced him to leave the diamonds with her so they can keep it for “themselves”. Jaehyo, still in a daze trying to avoid staring at the girl’s cleavage (and getting the middle finger again), agreed, thinking he can soon be rich and with a girl. BUT, little did he know that the girl ran off with the diamonds. And Kyung’s chicken. In fact, it was the girl and the chicken who planned to distract Block B and get them to give the diamonds to them. They had observed Block B and they thought Zico would give the diamonds to Kyung, his trusted friend, so the plan was for Mr. Cock-a-doodle-doo to grab the diamonds before escaping. Unfortunately, Kyung was handed the case with the money from PO and B-Bomb, so the girl had to be the one to grab the diamonds from Jaehyo instead.

    Goodness. I think I’ll be writing a novel with the length of this post. And maybe I will! HAH! All for Block B!

  3. The chicken and Kyung are in cahoots! Kyung wasn’t really
    trying to eat the chicken, the chicken had him brainwashed and was controlling
    him in order to lure Zico into a false sense of security so he would give Kyung
    the diamonds. The chicken is the real master pirate! Now he’s just sitting back
    in his chicken coop made of gold laughing away, cluck cluck cluck!

  4. Brilliant interview! Thank you. :) I’m so glad B-Bomb spoke. (I see you talking about dating, I see you.)

    ;_; I want one of these albums SO BADLY but I’m not funny at all!

    My personal headcanon for the MV is that they’re still in Jaehyo’s case and he’s subtly pretending not to have them at the end. He’s holding it and standing in a way that looks like he’s trying not to show he has a briefcase…seems suspicious! And Zico doesn’t make any attempts to look in it–he knows one of them has them…well. Look to Jaehyo?

  5. I think that Zico actually ate the diamonds because he didn’t want anyone else to get them, so when they gave him atomic poops, he got a little P.O.’d and tried to kill everyone. The end :D YouTube name: TeamNakatsu

  6. Thank you for a very nice interview ^-^ they do seem to be more relaxed than other idols during interviews…

    I’m sad the management rejected the skits…hm…I wonder, which management out there would allow skits to be shown …

  7. I really want to see the rest of the interview. *sobs* The best part was the cooking bit hahaha. That background music!!

  8. 1: YAY!

    2: I’m really disappointed that their management shut down a lot of things BUT! I understand. I think they’re still super cautious about international stuff right now. I’m not entirely sure WHY because from eyk’s descriptions it all sounds pretty safe. At least not worse than what they already do on Korean broadcasts. I mean, if they don’t want it shown that means it had to be stronger than Hot Pink (TM) ! Sucks for iBBCs though :(

    3: Okay I had some elaborate theory that, upon re-watching, now seems I could be completely wrong but here it was:

    TAEIL STOLE THE DIAMONDS.

    Somewhere between breaking off from P.O and B-Bomb and Zico finding Jaehyo up til they all gather to open the case TAEIL IS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND. He must’ve made a pact somehow with P.O. involving the thing P.O threw out the window (we all know how P.O loves his Taeil-hyung) and swapped it with an empty briefcase. by magic. or heli drop from the coordinates P.O gave him out the window idk he’s Taeil okay he can do things.

    You see the great big pond there? They met there for a reason. WHERE ELSE WOULD TAEIL THE MASTER OF FISHES HIDE THINGS OTHER THAN A GREAT BIG FISHPOND.

    Taeil knew the combo to the case. Taeil knows the magnae adores him enough to do anything for him. Taeil didn’t run too far from the pond when Zico chased them because he had to keep an eye on the pond.

    Why I think all this is wrong is: They opened the money briefcase. *NOT* the diamond briefcase which Jaehyo was still holding.

    SO. Unless Kyung and Jaehyo SWITCHED BRIEFCASES, the status of the diamonds are inconclusive. Who stole the money? Most likely Kyung. I know, I know, red velvet interior. But they never showed the inside of the money case so we can’t be sure.

  9. Hmm the diamonds….I think Zico dropped them when they were running away, and then the chicken took them and sold them to a squirrel, which then the squirrel sold them to Mr. brohoho, to which he used them in SNSD’s The Boys music video. The end! YAY!

  10. What an interesting question you ask. Hm..well according to my calculations when the case was given to Kyung. He obviously hid it very well! I mean hiding it behind your back? WHO KNEW THAT WOULD WORK? When everything was clear he left it sitting on some rock in order to catch the chicken, but the chicken got away because the magical fairy unicorn princess snatched it away from kyung. Disappointed and hungry he slowly walks towards the case. Being a curious little monkey he tried to open it with the frying pan, but no luck. :( Then he thought ‘what if I just try to lift it up?’ and with that the case was OPENED! He sees the two beautiful yet fake looking diamonds and gets very excited! “BROHOHO,” He laughed “I’m rich! I’m so rich! I can now buy all the man bras that I want! and maybe dinner too!” So with that in mind he took the diamonds and hid them..behind his back the whole time and left the barren cases to the rest of the group.

    Tsk tsk tsk, Kyung being so bad! But that’s just my theory (:

    BUT, what if another member has stolen it? OH MY GAWD. What if…what if…Pyo actually took it, trying to look all innocent and such. There’s only one way to make sure. I’m going to have to body search each and everyone of them. (: Yep yep.

  11. Kyung stole the diamonds and hid them in his pants as a result of being “cock-blocked” by the others. You don’t get between Kyung and his delicious fried chicken without suffering the consequences. Muahahaha!!

  13. Block B is one of the most fun idols out there because they care less about their image. With that being said, it is one of the main reasons why their company was being very strict.

    Block B has had some troubles in the past, with saying things that were misinterpreted by the public and reporters. Thanks for this interview though, I hope there are other awesome interviews in the future. Maybe another Ukiss one, bc I can’t get enough of them, lol.

    I would like to see how their experiences were of the concerts they did in South America, I heard they had a lot of press coverage and was also on a TV show! Plus their gonna stay in South America for some time, so I wanna know their feelings on that.

    Oh and Crazyno!!! I hope you guys interview him too!! He can speak perfect english, has an Australian accent and he’s crazy!!! His company also seems to be more relaxed, hope I get to see an interview of him too.

    Oh and he can make the craziest faces.

  14. The guys that wanted the money suitcase caught up to the suitcase that had the diamond and just took the diamond instead(prolly when jaehyo had it) and he acted like it was still in it so he’d look innocent! He has a girl what would he need big ass diamonds for anyways…. Oh…Wait~ Youtube is Leppypwns

      • I find that hard to believe with Block B though. Their company never seems to care a good 99% of the time. I guess their company got paranoid about Block B’s image, which sucks, but I still love Block B because they never fail to make me laugh at their antics! XD

    • Maybe this is why the KPop companies don’t hire English translators for their songs. Translators can still make mistakes and when they do, you might just as well be throwing money out the window.

  24. first off thank you for sharing the interview with us *_*.
    second what do you mean what happened to the diamond love? The stylist noonas have them. Those Fabulous clothes and haircuts don’t come cheap darling (did you see the dump that they were staying in? There is no way they could afford those clothes, that poor kid had to chase his own dinner for crying out loud. funny but sad too). i foresee a lot of bling in their future.

  25. I think that the suitcase with the two diamonds got thrown out to the dumpster…and the pick up truck came to pick up the trash….but, in case the suitcase was full of “B RATED BOMBS”-
    The pick up driver opened the suitcase -found the diamonds- sold one of the diamonds to a dealer and kept one for himself-got a ton of money- then, to make his daughter happy (which is me)- he bought two plane tickets to South Korea (since the music video was filmed in Vietnam)- the daughter (ME) went and hunted down SimonandMartina- asked for their autographs and traded the last diamond for a Block B autographed album :D♥♥♥

  26. If you watch the video clearly, the suitcase with money was passed to kyung who was about to eat the chicken, ukwon had the briefcase with the gun and zico passed the briefcase with diamond to jaehyo. Until the end, jaehyo was still holding the diamond briefcase and the only possible explanation is that, he took it when everyone was busy running and when they opened the briefcase, it is empty already. He acted like nothing happen and ran away when zico was scolding everyone. Case close~ :)

  29. I’m pretty sure Jaehyo took them for himself! Look at that, he’s got the REAL case right there! So sneaky, acting all upset that the diamonds “aren’t there.” He’s keeping them for himself and his girly, his IS deemed the most romantic by the other members after all. He’s taken them and eloped!

  32. Kyung’s chicken was a secret agent for the guys that Zico stole the diamonds from. He was scoping out the building when Kyung saw him and thought “That’s a sexy ass chicken…I’m gonna make some lunch out of him” and kidnapped him. We cut to the scene where Kyung is chasing the chicken around the room with the knife and is about to catch him. But then P.O, Zico, Taeil, and B-Bomb ran through the room and handed the brief case to Kyung to hide from the guys. When Kyung hid the briefcase behind his back the chicken took his chance and swiped the diamonds from the briefcase using his evil chicken powers of DOOM. Then the chicken returned the diamonds to his bosses after they were done beating up U-Kwon and they all went riding off into the sunset laughing at how they tricked Block B.

        4 years ago
        • And risk it getting out? They would probably get in a lot of trouble if that footage ever got out, since it is unapproved. At the very least it might make other companies wary of letting S&M interview their artists.
