Does this count as a Kpop Music Monday? It’s about Kpop Music, and it’s on Monday. That should count, no? It’s got footage of Taecyeon, Miss A, and SHINee! I’m trying to find the actual uploaded version of the lifestream and can’t. I’m not sure if it’s available yet. Once it is, I’ll edit this post and pop it in this spot here.

Edit: Booya! Found it!

 

We’re at 47:09 and 1hour20! Woot!

I know, though, that a lot of you reading this post will already have seen the footage. We saw a lot of your tweets and Facebook posts. So you were watching! If you didn’t, you missed out on a lot of stuff. We didn’t see most of it ourselves, either. Ha! We were either trying to understand our roles and responsibilities backstage, and didn’t get to see anything happening front stage. Too bad! We could hear some of it from time to time. Troublemaker sounds awesome live. That’s about all we could hear.

Otherwise, for those of you who haven’t seen it, we did two interviews as part of the main show in Seoul. The first interview was with Jung SungHa with Taecyeon moderating, and the second one was with Miss A with Min somewhat moderating. Neither of them really needed moderation, because everyone spoke and understood English, it seems. They just weren’t comfortable speaking it live, I think. We spoke with SungHa backstage in our tent afterwards and he kept up with everything just fine. Yeah!

Also, some of you might be wondering why we didn’t interview Sistar. Good question! Five minutes before our interview with them we were told that they had to go to another event. Isn’t that crazy? That’s the life of Kpop artists: perform at one event, hop in the van, and get scuttled off to the next event. These people work crazy schedules. And, because our scheduling went a bit over, they were supposed to do the interview with us and then leave, but time was cutting too close, so they had to go. Ah! We rolled with it, though.

Taecyeon was fun to talk to off camera. We spoke about Kpop a bit before the interview. We also spoke with Kris, who was tall. Man he’s tall! Not as tall as me, though, but freakishly tall by Kpop standards. He was nervous. We asked them if they’ve done stuff like this before and if they’re comfortable. Taecyeon said he does these all the time. Kris said he’s new to this. We could hear it in his voice. Aww! Min was a pro. That dress was mighty tight, though! She had her stylist helping her with it a lot of the time. And everyone was so nicely dressed and we were there in our regular people clothing. That was the point though. We were, you know, umm, cool. Right? Right? Right! AND YOU KNOW IT MAAANNN!

Funny side story: you saw MysteryGuitarMan in our tent with us. Why weren’t the other YouTubers there with us? David Choi was there. Just Kidding Films! A bunch more! They were watching the show. Joe and Ryan, however, wanted to go backstage, but they didn’t have access. So what’d they do? They walked up to the guard leading backstage and said “we’re here for Simon! We have to hurry! The show starts in five minutes!” and looked frustrated and pulled out their phones and started calling nobody, and the guard got flustered and let them in. SEE KIDS! It’s that easy! Next time you’re at a Girls’ Generation concert just yell “we’re here to see Tiffany!” and look flustered when they don’t let you in. It’ll work! Ha! No, it probably won’t. The guard must have just thought the foreigners must have been there to see the other foreigners. Seems legit. Or they might have been big Mystery Guitar Man followers and fangirled over him. Hell, if I was a security guard and, I dunno, Michael Jordan pulled that stunt on me I’d believe it.

Ok that’s it for now. We’re going to need a while for the SHINee interview before it can go live, because we need their management to approve of the video before it goes live. Tomorrow we’ve got a special collab video going up with some of the YouTubers that were here, and we’ve got a TL;DR on Wednesday and a FAPFAP on Thursday. Hopefully the SHINee video can be approved by Friday. If not, then make sure you’re subscribed so you can stay tuned so you don’t miss it. Yay!

    If I were simon, standing next to jonghyun I would probably fainted already. Even his stares get me

  2. Choi Yon Neul

    I can’t watch the 11h:59min:01sec video, it says “It’s private”.. Why do they upload it if it’s going to be private? Youtube issues! xD

  3. Lexxiebear

    Ah I finally found it a working vid, this is the Seoul portion of the YTMA.
    Shttp://youtu.be/AYp0bo9fh6g

    It is daebak! Much better than the NY portion which was just exceedingly awkward. I feel like you (Simon and Martina) just keep getting better at these sorts of events. Any awkwardness you may have felt didn’t really show. Good job. =D Can’t wait for the SHINee interview.

  4. I still can’t believe you guys got to meet Just Kidding Films…Your so lucky I want to meet those guys!!! But thats AWESOME Tho!!! :D

  5. brinaethegiraffe

    Min’s dress though. 0.0

  6. For anyone that is seeing that the video above from the YTMA is private, they uploaded a new one on the 5th of November, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXBPbnv1H-U

    The video’s private, is there anyway of seeing it?

  22. Kaylee Swenson

    So no biggie but I kinda saw SHINee on my screen and then you guise were like “OH JK NO SHINEE FOR YOU” and I only hyperventilated a little bit, so it’s whatever.
    Actually I’m having like a Shawol seizure over here but it’s cool. I get it. -watches the 3.5 seconds of video of them a billion more times-

  23. The video says it’s private!

  24. Annie

    SHINee!! Can’t wait, will be looking forward to this post. I’m sure fanguerilla was there in spirit.
    Man, you guys seemed to have so much fun and when your students recognized you! Oh my gosh so adorbzz!

    I think this is the perfect opportunity to launch the Eat Your Kimchi “cookie” blanket. Think about it! It would make total sense for it to say “Ooh You So Nasty!”

  26. 그래 Wolf, 내가 Wolf~♥

    Simon and Martina looks fabulous as always!! ^^ Omg did you guys tell Kris about the MusicMondays of EXO? Omg i can’t wait for them to see it. Especially the Mama one, where Martina says “12 young, hot korean boys”, Kris gonna be like,” We have four Chinese members” Our Kriscasso was nervous, omg that cutiepie ><

  27. Si-MAN, MAN-ho, and Tae-MAN? That is too much man for one tent to handle… XD

  28. I went back and paused the video just to compare how short Jonghyun is compared to Simon.

    And instead of laughing about how Jonghyun was stuck standing next to Simon, I ended up laughing at Simon’s expression.

    Nooo why is the video private D< I was just watching it. D:

  30. Marisol Palomares

    Guys do you edit first and then show it to the SM management or do you have to show them the full footage? To ask for permission, I mean.
