Okokokokok, so this is going to be really, really cool. Probably one of the biggest things we’ve ever done. Check it out:

Sunday, November 3rd, at 7:00PM, YouTube is going to be streaming the YouTube Music Awards, presented by Kia. You can watch it on the Music Awards page. It’s starting off in Seoul with a bunch if performances from Kpop bands, like SHINee, Sistar, Miss A, and 4Minute, as well as Show Luo and Sungha Jung.

We’ve been talking about this event for quite a while now, as some of you might have seen if you attended any of our European Tour Events, or in the times we mentioned it in our Music Mondays. But it wasn’t until recently that we got the big news: we’re going to be part of the show as well! Daaaammn! We’re gonna be backstage at the event doing interviews with Sistar, Miss A, Show Luo, SungAh Jung, and also SHINee. Yep. Soy un freaking Dorito! We’ll be doing two interview sessions, with Kris from Exo moderating one and Taecyeon from 2PM moderating another. The SHINee interview is something we’ll be doing on our own, outside of the show’s broadcast. But we’ll be freaking broadcast backstage! Holy shit!

But this isn’t just us. You know whenever we do interviews it isn’t just us asking stuff. We want you to get involved. Tell us what you want us to ask them. Let them know what fans want to know. He’ll yeah!

If you want to get involved, send us a tweet @eatyourkimchi with the Hashtag #YTMA. We’ll pick a bunch of your questions and ask as many as we can!

You might have noticed the other YouTubers in our video as well. They’re here, along with a bunch more, promoting the YTMAs. We’re doing a few different videos with them all, so our regular schedule is a bit thrown off course. But you should be seeing us in videos with Mystery Guitar Man, Hyunwoo Sun, and The VFXbros. They’re all cool people. And how often do we do stuff with other YouTubers? We’re so excited for this! Yay!

Stay tuned for more. And make sure you don’t miss out on any of the videos by subscribing!

    (i wish they could give honest answers to all these questions. but maybe we’ll get lucky with a little bit of insight :)

    -Who has the best (or worst, or nonexistent) relationship with who within Shinee?
    -Is there anything you hate about being an idol?
    -Has any fan ever stuck out from everyone else and stayed in your mind for a little longer than the rest? Why?
    -What does each member think of the other members (individually, not collectively as “the other members”)?
    -what do you think is your best and worst character trait? (not like singing/dancing/rapping but like honesty/selfishness/arrogance/humility) Why?

    -do you ever dislike or get tired of “Shinee”‘s music?

  6. To Show Luo:

    Since you do so well hosting/entertaining in your variety show in Taiwan and, as a variety veteran, would you want to go on a Korean variety show? If yes, which one and how do you think you’d do?

    Do you have thoughts about promoting or expanding in Korea?*

    Have you been learning Korean and how good are you/what can you say?*

    Are there any Korean artists you’d like to collaborate with?

    Can you do any of the dances of the artists here (2pm, SHINee etc) (and could you show us)? (If not he’s insanely fast at learning dances so maybe get one of the them to teach him, if they are doing the interview together)

    Which Korean artists/bands would you like to invite to your show and why?*

    Is there any group/person here you’re a particular fan of and would like to say something to?

    To Kris (if he’s taking questions):

    What language do you think in?* :D

    What career (and in what country) do you think you would be in if you didn’t get in to SM (professional artist?!)?*

    What musical direction would you like EXO to move in or try doing in future?

    What is the difference between promoting in China and in Korea e.g. on TV shows?*

    Which language do you think is the hardest out of the ones you speak?

    (Have you ever accidentally spoken in the wrong language?)

    To SHINee:

    If you had the chance to go on another ‘One Fine Day’ holiday, where would you go? What would you do differently?(Did anyone find the traces that you left behind?)

    In all the years that you guys have debuted, which member has changed the most e.g. personality or look?

    What is your favourite music video that you have done and why?

    Since Minho (MANHO) is interested in video editing, would he ever like to direct a music video? What would it be like? Likewise what would a (SHINee) music video directed by Key/Taemin/Jonghyun/Onew look like?*

    What do you think makes a good (idol) group/the secret of longevity?

    Who is the most eccentric?

    *******BTW you HAVE to explain the ‘Soy un Dorito’ joke and what it means and present Taemin with the T-shirt, it’s one of your GREATEST inside jokes and I HIGHLY doubt he owns anything even HALF as stylish and AWESOME (judging by his music video wardrobe) :D Will also take this opportunity to say I LOVE all the EYK merchandise and want a T-shirt too! <3


    What song(s) of the other artists here do you wish you had written/had been yours and why?*

    Do you like receiving fan art and drawings of yourself? Or would you rather receive a drawing of someone you like?* :)

    Do you wish you had gone to university? If you did, what degree would you do?

    (A little weird but) Do you talk to yourself? Aloud? Conversationally?

    What are you most likely to be thinking when you are filming a scene in your music videos (i.e. if we were to pause it)?

    Please give a pie chart/the percentages of time you spend with different facial expressions e.g. smiling, blank, frowning, laughing.*

    Have you ever watched an EYK review video (or a reaction video to your song)? What was your reaction?

    Thanks, love EYK! From Vivien Wu, 18, in England. * = better/higher priority questions

  12. For any of the groups but with special emphasis on Miss A & Sistar:
    Do they have any funny stories from their trainee years that they can share :3

    For Miss A:
    You’re preparing for your comeback now; What does that involve? Is there ANY time to rest? Please remember to take care of your health <3

    Also what songs should we look out for on the new album? What are your individual favourites? x x x

  13. Hey guys, I just wanted to compile all the question suggestions I tweeted to you into one post, so hopefully you’ll see them all. :) SHINee is my all-time favorite group and it would mean soooooooooo much to me if you picked one of my questions. Here they are!

    This question is for Taemin: Do you even LIKE Doritos?
    This question is for Taemin: As the dancer of the group, which of your dances would you say is the most difficult?
    This question is for Minho: Are there any dramas you wish you could have acted in?
    This question is for Jonghyun: How long does it take to draw on the “tattoos” you wear in the Shinee World Concerts?
    This question is for SHINee: Do you ever read the comments fans make on your music videos? (I’ve heard Minho does.)
    This question is for SHINee: Besides the ones you already studied, if you could learn any language, what would it be?
    This question is for SHINee: Quick! What’s your favorite banchan/snack?
    This question is for SHINee: In all of your travels, what was your favorite food and where was it from?
    This question is for Taemin and Minho: Would you ever consider making a Twitter or Instagram account?

    I’ll probably be thinking of more questions throughout the next couple of days, and I’ll edit this post as I tweet them out. ^-^

    Also, my name is Emilie, I’m from Wisconsin, USA, and my twitter is @emilieloveskiwi

  15. can you ask them what it’s like for them living together? funny/embarassing stories, scary moments, etc. Thank you!!!

  16. Could you possibly invite SHINee (and the others, especially Miss A, EXO and 2pm, who you were going to interview so long ago…) to the studio so that they can meet other EYK family members; i.e. Spudgy… fanguerilla…? And then you could do the sticker booth and do awesome introduction skits! ^^ Otherwise you could ask questions like:

    1.What is your favourite music to listen to when you have free time (aside from your own)?
    2.If you could go anywhere on a holiday, where would it be and what would you do?
    3.What is your favourite variety programme to go on (or which variety show would you like to go on)?
    [My favourites are Running Man, Dream Team and Weekly Idol]

  19. Oh my god, yes, FINALLY! That interview with SHINee we’ve all been waiting for!

    But… now I’m nervous and I don’t know what to ask /sweats/ I can only think of really lame questions urghh no this is my only chance to just show my bias group for just a split second that I exist and I can’t even come up with a good question ;~;

  21. This is the official US Nasty fan page. US fans would like to ask all of the Kpop bands if they’re planning a US Tour. If not, in which US city would each member like to visit?

  22. I have a question for SHINee’s Jonghyun. I’d like to know if possibly in the future, he might compose a song for the group. While he’s written the lyrics for several SHINee songs, he hasn’t yet participated in the composition of any, though I think he has a big interest in composition. On the show SHINee’s One Fine Day, Jonghyun played little bits of his own compositions, which I thought sounded very good. I’d love to hear a song fully composed by him for SHINee. Is this something that might be in the cards for a future album?

    I also have a question for Miss A’s Jia and Fei. I’m wondering how they as non-Koreans feel working in the Kpop industry. Was/Is the language barrier hard to overcome? What are some experiences they’ve had as non-Korean idols that other, Korean idols don’t experience? Please feel free to reword this question, as I wasn’t exactly sure how to ask it. I can’t wait for the interviews. Good luck, you two!

  23. Also, can I just say you guys are the reason I fell in love with SHINee in the first place. TaeMAN’s extensions in Sherlock and their song “Hello” put me off about the band, but hearing your review about Sherlock and hearing you guys rave about them made me give them a chance. And boy am I glad I did. So THANK YOU for introducing me to this awesome band! I’m so glad (and frankly a bit jealous) you guys get to interview them. All the best!! =D

  24. Oh my gawd, I feel faint and I’m not even the one that’s going to interview these giants…S & M fighting! Chant “I’m awesome and the Nasties love me” in your mind before you go to have the “chat”….

  38. Questions for SHINee:
