uBEAT Interview

Awesome! Our first kpop idol group in the Eatyourkimchi Nasty Studio! Huzzah! We almost had Boyfriend in here, but our schedules didn’t overlap at the right time. I tell you: these idols have such hectic schedules. When do they schedule in time to sleep? uBEAT, the day of this interview, supposedly flew in from another country, did a fan signing session, and then came to the Eatyourkimchi Nasty Studio. Yikes! We just go from home to work and within a few hours we’re like “pffft time to call it a day!”

Interesting facts about this interview:

1) They came an hour earlier than expected. You might have seen at the end of our last live chat how we scrambled to end the live chat. That’s because Soo Zee got the phone call that they were really early. Ah! We had garbage everywhere from all the package wrappings! We didn’t set up the lights or the food tables! YEEEP! It took a while for them to find a parking spot though (yay!) so we had enough time to prepare everything. But we were sweaty from panic. Fact: we stunk around uBEAT.

2) At the end of the interview, when we were talking about what foods are in uBEAT’s refrigerators, after Kevin talked about pizza, we recommended the pizza shop downstairs, Monster Pizza. We did a video about Korean pizza before. We don’t like it. Monster Pizza does New York style pizza, though, and it’s delicious. Point is, uBEAT went there afterwards to get pizza. So, if you’re ever in the Hongdae area, you can sit exactly where uBEAT sat and eat the same pizza. Booya! Side note, we’re not paid by Monster Pizza to say that. I’m not even sure they know we exist. They’re too busy making pizzas. They’re probably like “oh it’s those white people again that always come here and say they’re from upstairs or something.” Another fact, uBEAT were nice enough to buy a pizza for us and send it up. Isn’t that amazingly kind? These interviews take a couple of hours or so, and are a bit labor intensive, especially for B camera running around trying to get closeups, so for them to send up a pizza for us is really kind of them. AYY GURL CAN I BUY YOU A PIZZA. Yes, uBEAT, yes you can, and we like you so much more for it now :D

3) Another interesting fact: we saw the uBEAT video before they did. Ha! Their management sent us the video in advance, so we can prepare questions, and when we told uBEAT we were going to talk about their video they were like “you’ve seen it? WE haven’t seen it!” So we showed it to them. FYI, if you haven’t seen it yet yourself, check it out here, because we talk about it a lot in the interview:

4) We realized that we barely ever share the pictures from the sticker booth. What a waste! Here: take a look at some of the pics:

Martina was the only one in the booth this time, because I was busy preparing the camera for something else.

5) AJ’s allergic to dogs, and was itchy around Spudgy. OH GOD WE FEEL SO TERRIBLE ABOUT IT! We moved Spudgy into the other room when uBEAT was here, but we felt so guilty, because – even if we didn’t bring Spudgy that day – there’s still Spudgy dander around the studio, right? So AJ was rather itchy the whole time, but he still did a great job of being fun on camera. SORRY AJ OH GOD WE’RE SORRY!

Anyhow, that’s it for that. We had a great time with uBEAT and it didn’t feel like work whatsoever. Just…chatting! More importantly, you want one of these three CDs, don’t you? WE WANT TO GIVE THEM TO YOU! Here’s what you gotta do to win!

1) YouTube

  1. This has got to be my favorite interview so far. uBeat looked so relaxed and were having a good time just hanging out talking to you guys. AJ really did cover up his allergy to Spudgy very well. Poor AJ I knew he was allergic to a lot of stuff but I didn’t know dogs was one of those things. He’s like me, we need to live in a bubble because the plantet is trying to kill us. :-P

    Simon, Martina and uBeat, thank you for this interview. It was so fun and wonderful and comfortable. Made me forgot for at least half an hour that I’m having surgery tomorrow. I love you guys and I think I will rewatch this again tomorrow while I”m waiting for my for the surgery to begin.

    Did Eli and Kevin get to meet Spudgy?

    OH and thank you for sharing some of the photos from the marshmallow! ^_^!!!!

    • Agreed. Hope ur surgert went well. BTW I love ur icon. Go Steven & TWD!

      • YAY! Another The Walking Dead Fan. My first TWD love was Steven Yeun, but Norman Reedus is fighting for my love also lol

        Thank you for your well wishes, the surgery went very well. Already on the road to recovery :)

        • well i hope ur recovery happens quickly. yes Steven was my first TWD love – actually the reason I started watching bc I found him so cute. When I found out he was Korean I was like *gasp* double awesome.

          3 years ago
        • It was a huge plus to find out Steven was Korean. I have found that almost every single Asian man I’ve liked in a show or movie in the past few years have all been Korean. I think I have a new built in Korean detector. XD

    • OHMYGOSH! Sad/happy feelz together? I’m so happy to make you smile, but please let us all know how your surgery goes, okay?

      • Hi Simon and Martina, all the wonderful Nasties who sent me well wishes. You have all made me feel very loved during this time and helped keep my spirits up. My surgery went very well yesterday and after a long wait they finally sent me home to truly start healing. Hopefully in a few days all the surgery pains will be gone and I can start being my goofy hyper self again. Before I knock out again I think a rewatch of your spectacular uBeat interview is in order. Plus maybe it will give me sweet dreams of handsome Eli ;)

        Sorry for double posting but in my sleepiness I hit the delete button on my phone somehow :-/

      • Thank you very much Jessica :) The perfume sections of department stores drive me nuts. I just want to run through them with a mask on. My allergies though are so bad that I’ve had many doctors tell me it would be better if I move to the moon. I tell it wouldn’t work, I’d probably be allergic to moon dust. XD

  4. That was such a great interview, really enjoyable. They just seem so lovely, even when they went on Arirang they just ooze awesome and I’m so proud to be a KissMe~~ ♥

    I would definitely want to give Dora Dora a bash at Noraebang! Or Take Me Away – because it’s one of their prettiest songs (even if they don’t all sing QQ).

    I’m from South Africa though, so maybe an Afrikaans song for the hilarity of it! ^^

    Really, singing anything with U-Kiss would really be dolphin noises from me and poker faces from them???

  6. i had to laugh so hard at kevin’s “pizzas have flavors?”

    the whole interview was awesome and you got it up so fast, i didn’t expect that at all!
    i wonder how long we will have to wait for uKevin to debut xD

    aah…if i had the chance to go to a noraebang with the boys, i would sing backstreet boys – “backstreet’s back” because it’s a fun song, bsb was my first concert back in 1996 and i know ukiss are bsb fanboys so…this can’t possibly go wrong
    it might sound lame to others but yeah, that would be my first choice. my youtube name is iniyama in case you don’t think this is lame xD

    I have to be honest, I spent most of the time staring at Kevin’s pretty hands.
    I’m not usually like this, but they’re just so pretty! why can’t my hands be like that? okay imma shut up now before I embarrass myself further :P

    Good job guys! This was a really fun and awesome interview :D

  13. OMG when they said “Gabbie!” my heart DROPPED! Though it wasn’t my question I just LOVED the fact that they said my name! It literally MADE MY DAY!! And today is also my last day of sophomore year of college too!! WOOT WOOT!!

    That’s such a hard question! Though the first song that came to mind was Justin Timberlake’s “SexyBack!” With how attractive they are, and the mindset they have on their looks mixed with their amazing personalities, this song would be BEYOND fantastic to sing with them!!! ^^ Could you imagining A.J. (Jaeseop Kim) pulling down his shirt a little to see some of his chest hair?!?! OMG He is my ultimate bias!!! …Totally fangirling over here. So sorry >.< …Seriously though just imagine all the uKISS members giving their ultimate sexy look at the camera while singing "I'm bringing sexy back!!" …Lol omg this is killing me. ^^

  14. ROTFL Oh my gosh that was so great!!! xD the section where you guys talked about chest hair X”D I cried from laughing so hard!!! It actually really hurt, because I have a herniated disk in my lower back xD I’m fairly sure I was crying from pain and laughter at the same time hahaha!

  15. i’d like to sing “Party All the Time” with uBEAT. this song has
    become one of may mood booster songs. It’s such a fun song to sing!!
    can get rid of my bad moods awaaayyy :D Eli could do the rap part.
    meanwhile Jaeseop and I could sing the chorus part together :3

    love to see those three friendly, humble, pleasant guys (esp Jaeseop whom i’ve missed soooooooo muuuccchhhh!!!)

    thank u so muchh for the interview..u guys rock!! m/

  16. I would like to sing their debut song”Not Young” with them. Its like the memories and hard times they have went through just to debut. I guess they miss those times too.. When Kibum and Xander was still there..Well I love AJ and Hoon too!! ><; They can probably invite Kibum and Xander over to the 노래방 or AJ and Hoon takes their part in the song. Im.pretty sure they miss the song too. And they will probably roll around laughing their asses off when they watch their old mv. haha

  17. if i went to noraebang with ubeat, i’d sing michael jacksons beat it, freestyle the lyrics and change the chorus to “so ubeat it, just ubeat it~”
    ..it would be awesome *_*

    btw, watching the interview i realized i would have totally wanted to ask about the time when AJ accidentaly smacked Kevin in the Believe music video D: WHYYY BRAIN, WHYYY? T_T

  22. OMG the bloopers were friggin fantastic! I love how down to earth these three guys are! They are all my faves of UKISS now. *boots Soohyun off the couch*

    What song would I want to sing with them? Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Cause it’s an awesome song to sing to and it has so many different keys plus its very fast so the rappers can rap, the singers can sing and we can all headbang around the room. It’d go off.

  24. I think it’d be awesome to try and have a Gwiyomi Song competition at the Noraebang with Ubeat (and Kevin)! It would be awesome to try and ‘out-cute’ (well aware that that’s not a word) each other given that AJ and Eli don’t have cute images (in the aegyo sense)!

  25. Tbh, I died a little when Eli impersonated Mordney Present’s voice. I can’t. DEAD. LMAO

    PS, not joining the contest. I’m not really a U-KISS/uBEAT stan and I want the winner to be one heck of a Kiss Me/Heartbeat. XD But if I’m going to pick my favorite U-KISS member, it would be AJ. Cuz he’s flawless.

    • Yeah, that was it. They came right at the end of our LiveChat, and we didn’t have time to change, because we were too busy trying to set up the lights and cameras and mics and whatnot. AH! Next time, I’ll just wear the shirt all day :D

    • I noticed the same thing. I suddenly realised he wasn’t wearing the shirt. Oh well, they now talked about chesthair, so…

  32. What song I’d like to sing with uBEAT???…. hrmmm

    I’d really like to sing a ballad with them so I’d pick 0330. But it is Korean and even though I can sing it with them, I’d prefer an English song. and YAY! Since they’re English speaking punks, I really like More Than Words. Why?~

    Kevin sang it many times and it’s my favorite song. And it’s perfect to tell them how much I love them. More than words~ I hope you get what I mean eh? ^//^ ~ It’s not overly dramatic and just enough for fun and expressing love. ♥

    uBEAT let’s sing it yeah?~

  38. i haven’t seen this yet as youtube isn’t working for me right now… but did they ask the guys what they think of basically being like slaves to their label; what with being forced to work like 30 days a month for way more than 8-9 hours/day?

    a shame to see how many labels in Korea treat their artists. Just coz you invested money in training them doesn’t give you the right to treat them like crap
