We Are Going to Interview MFBTY!

In case you couldn’t tell from some of our other videos, we don’t get embarrassed easily. We’re dorky and massively uncool and don’t feel any shame in it. Not only do we not feel any shame in it, we made a job out of being dorks. So, now that we have the chance to do a video with people that are beyond cool, we’re thinking to ourselves, how is this gonna work? We like making our audience uncomfortable, but our interviewees? We can’t do that! But I feel like MFBTY will feel the forcefield of un-cool-ness surrounding the perimeter of our studio and they won’t be able to break through, like that scene from True Blood when the witches made that forcefield around their building and the vampires couldn’t come in. Man, I’ve just remembered how much that season sucked.

Anyhow, HELP US BE LESS UNCOOL! Give us some good questions we should ask them. There’s so much we want to speak with them about concerning the Korean music scene and their place in it, because we’re sure they’ve got TREMENDOUS insight they can provide. But what else? Let us know! Leave your question in the comment section and we’ll pick some of them for the interview. HELLS YEAH!

In case you haven’t seen MFBTY’s video for “Sweet Dream” you can see it here, and start preparing your questions!

  2. Oh my gosh! I’m so excited for this! I have heard a lot about them, but never really looked into their music cause I’m not into hip hop too much. But I watched an episode of running man with them recently and I really loved them! They are such cool, nice people, and I loved seeing Tiger JK and his wife Tasha, they are so cute and I admire their relationship! :D

  8. Since their fans are better than others (FACT) two questions:

    1. What’s the coolest thing a fan has ever done for them or, alternatively,

    2. What’s a not-so-cool thing that a fan has given to them?

    • that’s actually a really good question! I’ve heard different netizens reactions to bans but I wonder how the artists view them. I’d feel suffocated even if I had no desire to reference bannable subjects.

  20. Yaay, I’m so happy for you guys that will be able to to the interview, it’ll be so great. And I’m really happy for myself that I’ll be able to watch the interview later :D

    QUESTIONS: Well, since they are all so cool…what kind of things do they consider to be cool, and what is the coolest thing they’ve ever experienced?

    Because they have the better fans…what are their reflections on their own celebrity lives, how does it differ from other kpop-idols, in terms of the attention they get and their fans a.s.o…?

    And finally…are they nasty?

  22. A question for Tiger JK and Yoon Mirae, with your (ADORABLE!) son Jordan, as you both have strong American and Korean backgrounds, is his bringing up more of a Korean-style bringing up or a western-style bringing up? i.e. the language you speak around him, education etc.

  24. These days, it seems like the Korean underground hip hop scene isn’t as underground as before; many artists are collaborating with more mainstream acts and the world is becoming more exposed to Korean hip hop. What are your feelings on the current K-hip hop scene, its development over the years and its place in Korean pop culture. ^^ 새해복 많이 받으세요!

  34. Thank you so much EYK to make this interview!! I have a LOT OF questions to ask ke ke ke
    1. You’re in the musical industry since a long time now, what do you think about the fact that K-pop is spreading all around the globe? What do you think about this artists?
    2. Tasha: you said that you’ll make your debut in the USA, are you ready? How your husband support you? And in the clip MAMA 2011 for the official musi,c you are accompanied by a gorilla / Rabbit, where did this creature come from and how did you meet :P?
    3. As Simon and Martina, you work together, isn’t boring?
    4. Why did you choose this name for your group? Do your really think that yours fan are better than the others?
    5. Have you some Sasang fan? What do you about this crazy girls/boys?

  36. How do you feel about Korean music breaking to the West? Is it ok for you to be associated with the whole “KPop” trend in the eyes of foreigners, or do you wish the public could listen to your music without any prejudice regarding the country you’re from?

    (To Simon and Martina: feel free to reformulate the question, I didn’t manage to make it sound good)

    Question asked from South Africa by Nawak from France!

      • Now it is, unfortunately! But I wished Simon and Martina had included a link for the voting when they published this article! When they interviewed U-Kiss, they pushed us to vote for their video!

    • Oooooh good question. Remember when Tiger JK flipped out after someone in the US asked him to dance Gangnam Style?

      3 years ago
      • It happened in Seoul, not the USA, but he was dealing with white hecklers….hence “american” association. Good article to read by seoulbeats on that whole issue: http://seoulbeats.com/2012/10/why-tiger-jk-isnt-racist-shouldnt-have-apologized-and-how-psy-factors-in/

        3 years ago
      • That was the time I thinking of..I think? Honestly, when I read about that I was thinking “Good for Tiger JK! What kinda [insert colorful name] asks an artist to do such a [insert colorful adjective] thing? [insert colorful mumbling after the fact].” It only takes one douchebag in the crowd to make the entirety of white people look like xenophobe morons.

        3 years ago
        • I think Tiger JK was totally justified in doing that, he just shouldn’t have called out all white people like that; almost every white person I know (because some just don’t care XD) is disgusted by any kind of racism and they’d be ready to tell off those hecklers as well.

          3 years ago
        • I don’t think he *did* call out ‘all white people.’ It was a couple of people in the front of the crowd being jerks, he called them on it with his mic, so *everybody* heard his response, but most of the crowd was too far away to hear or see what set him off.

          3 years ago
        • If he didn’t, then I apologize for not getting my facts straight; I read about the situation from an article (editorial?) on Seoulbeats (link below) that spoke about the situation.

          http://seoulbeats.com/2012/10/why-tiger-jk-isnt-racist-shouldnt-have-apologized-and-how-psy-factors-in/

          3 years ago
        • Yeah, I agree…maybe a little over the top. But I think about the times that someone has really and truly pissed me off (it doesn’t happen real often), and in response I’ve said some crazy crap that didn’t necessarily represent my true beliefs or feelings in a saner moment. Having never had someone treat me as crudely as I think he was treated, I think it’s a little unrealistic for me or anyone to say how he (or anyone) should act in that moment. I suspect that the “problem people” in the crowd probably had no idea how offensive they were being – another problem of not thinking before we speak.
