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!

  1. If you can you guys should try to do mini-interviews with the others or ask them if you can interview them when they can O_O imagine you guys had your own daytime tv show xD

  2. I’m having big fangirling moment. Kris from “I lost my pants” EXO and Manho appa *faints* and as many stated my first thought was “soy un dorito” *evil grin*. That will be wait for it L E G E N D A R Y :). I lost my senses in lipito flipito slow motion :)

  3. Questions for SHINee:
    ( please pick any that seems interesting and modify as pleased and let me die overwhelmed by happiness):

    1. Which choreography was the hardest to learn? Which one is the most tiring?
    2. What are the members’ favourite ice cream flavours?
    3. Since there are times when they work a lot and they are tired, do they drink a lot of coffee? Who likes coffee the most? How do they like their coffee?
    4. How old they would think they are if they didn’t know? (as in, how old they feel)
    5. What would be their weapon of choice in a fantasy alternate universe?
    6. Whatwas the last movie they watched? Did they like it?
    7. Who walks around the dorm shirtless most often?
    8. If they do sing in the shower, do they sing their own songs or other artists’ songs? (I know you used this question in the past but I think it’s interesting)

    9. Simon,as a part of your nation I have a huge favour – can you please ask them to say something in Polish? (“dzień dobry”, “dziękuję”or “kocham cię” jafbhgbhsgah)

  5. Whooo, Show Luo! My sisters just saw him live in Canada on Saturday. Busy guy…

    Anyhow, I don’t have any questions at the moment, but had to comment on the hilarity of this video. I hope to see TaeMAN and MANho running from dinosaurs in a future video!

  10. 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!

  11. 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

  15. I have one question for SHINee. Who changed the most since debut? And I demand photos with dorito hat and soy un dorito and TaeMAN shirts. Seriously, guise.
    As for Kris I would like you to wish him Happy Birthdays, from a fellow Scorpio, albeit a Polish one. Also, have him meet Fanguerilla. PWEASE! Pretty please with a dorito on top! *W*

  17. questions for shinee!

    1. In being a part of Shinee, what do you regret the most?

    2. What/who do you love? (as many as they can name in one minute? :)

    3. what do you want to do once Shinee ends?

    4. what’s one (or more) outfit that you’ve absolutely hated wearing?

    5. And this is Elizabeth Dang’s question that I thought was really good so here it is again so you might be more likely to see it: “All the artists have music videos that get 1 million+ views on YouTube. Do they ever read the comments section to see what their fans think? Do the comments ever influence them when they make another music video?”

  18. Hello S&M! I don’t have a twitter but I’ll put my question here if you decide to read your comments anyway. I wanted to ask the idol groups if they have seen any impressive rookies this year, or if a new group has caught their eye in terms of concept/vocals/dance etc.? I hope you guys have an awesome time at the awards, we’ll be waiting anxiously for your interviews! Hugs, Gabe~♥

  19. Can you ask them when will they have a tour concert?

  20. A question to any of the groups really being do they ever get tired of practicing the same song? (I feel like this they’re probably going to say yes). So do they do anything to change it up like practicing the song in a different style or having different dance moves?

    Also what song( from their company) do they admire the most and wish they could perform?

    5 years ago
  21. They need EYK shirts, I wish there was a Taeman and Manho shirt but i’m not sure how that will play out… Can’t believe you are actually going to interview all of them and this gig? Dude, Soooo Nasty! Simon and Martina Congratulations and Salutations and all those congratulatory stuffs!!! :) All the best. Maybe some day we will be able to see them in your studio.

  22. EatYourKimchi crew! Hi! (?) Please send my greetings to SHINee from Mexico and ask them to please rest as much as they can and to keep doing their amazing work. Also what has been the most fun backstage and/or on stage during all of their 2013 performances?
    What was each member’s favorite moment?
    And congratulations of their winnings! Fighting!

    (All of the above is for SHINee, btw xd)

    Thank you so much and also congratulations on this big oportunity for you, guys. I’m sure it’s very thrilling :D

  26. Questions for SHINee:

    1. K-pop involves a lot of upholding a certain image as a person and as a group. Is there/has there ever been a time you feel like the public’s perception of you is totally off and want to break free of that?

    2. If you were to debut as a solo artist what genre of music would you pursue?

    3. What’s your favorite song by another artist?

  35. 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

    (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?
