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!

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

  2. Here’s their Miss A interview if anyone missed it. They only did two interviews but I can’t find the Sungha jung one


  3. I can’t watch the video it says that is private and I can’t find on youtube :( somebody help me pleaseee!

  4. The Youtube Music Award Video is Private! D”:
    NNNNoooooooooo~~~~! *Cries forever*

  5. I think every Nasty just Fangorilla-ed all over this vid. Well done EYK crew!

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

  7. I was going to say Shinee look pretty tall compared to the wee sprites of Super Junior when compared with Simon.

  8. 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!

  9. 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!”

  10. The video shows as private when I try to watch it. The Youtube music awards full show one. Do others see it??

  11. 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.

  12. Ok, excuse me while before I watch the vid I die of both envy and happiness for you guys.

  13. The video is private… ;________; is there anywhere else you can see it?

  14. Yeah sooo……… the video doesn’t work anymore:(

  15. I love the former student whose holding up two cell phones at once to take photos, twice the coverage! XD

  16. And letting you know guise… the youtube video for the show is blocked D:

  17. I think it’s really cool how your (Martina xD) students were so excited to see you :D

  18. So that’s what those blankets are for! I thought they wore them because their legs are cold lol you wouldn’t get that over here. Crotch shots for everyone!

  19. I gotta admit the New York performances were creative but the Seoul ones seemed like a proper show. As for the rest of the shows, they just seemed like regular gigs to me.

  20. Haha, were the chairs placed wrong?
    But I didn’t know you were meeting Sungha Jung as well… you lucky people………. =_=

  21. Pffft, who cares about the SHINee interview…
    I DO OH SO MUCH! Seriously, never before have I been so excited about any of your interviews. One thing is that SHINee are the group that got me into Kpop and they’re one of my favorite groups but there’s also another reason, more important I guess. I thought it would be extremely difficult for you to arrange an interview with any of SM artists. I knew that you wanted to interview SHINee but to be honest, I didn’t really think it would happen. Thank you for proving me wrong! I can’t wait to see it, hopefully their management won’t cut too much.

    Hmm, I didn’t know Taecyeon was fluent in English… Does that make me a bad Kpop fan? Anyway, I feel a sudden urge to listen to “My Ear’s Candy”.

    “We also spoke with Kris, who was tall.” I just love these remarks in blog posts XD

    • “I knew that you wanted to interview SHINee but to be honest, I didn’t really think it would happen.” DITTO! Truthfully I never thought SM would allow them interview any artists on camera. Not that Super Junior doesn’t count, but it wasn’t an interview, it was Star King. This is soooo different.

      I’m really hoping that SM won’t cut anything, especially anything hilarious from the interview. Getting to know SHINee the past year, it is obvious those guys are completely hyper all over the place super fun and zany. Add on the sleep deprived crazies and they are really a hyper bundle of joy. Especially that humming bird Jonghyun. ^^

  22. Hello S&M could you enlighten me on something? During SHINee’s performance I happened to notice that Onew didn’t dance with them, was something wrong with him? Was he hurt? Did anyone else notice this?

  23. OMG, I thought those blankets were just because it might be cold there. I didn’t even consider it might be a “cookie blanket” as Martina said. XD

  24. Hey guise!

    gosh… such a big event… you guise were great!! :) (ah…Martina you should’ve thought about the blanket… but it was ok… manageable… )

    …and SungHa Jung!!! I remember watching videos of him when he was little…he’s all grown now… how fast time flies…

    ….mistery of the misteries…. how did Shinee come willingly in your tent…? O___O I’m not really a fan but can’t deny the fact that Shinee has some of the most beautiful voices!! ….but I’m curious to know what kind of personalities they have…

    Thank you for sharing these with us!! :3 (your schedule was crazy… as well as everybody elses! )


  25. OH MY GOSHHHHH I CANT BELIEVE YOU MET SHINEEEE, WHY DON’T I LIVE IN KOREA :'( AND YOU MET KRIS?!?!?!? EXO KRIS?!?!? FFFFFF SO JEALOUS! What about the other Exo members? ;O WHAT IS LIFEEEE, NOTHING INTERESTING HAPPENS IN CANADA -.- (At least not kpop related…..lol) Glad you guys had fun though :)

  26. So about 10x I’ve tried and the video crashes around 1:20:00 every time.

  27. awww former students!! :D that must have been nice to see them :)

  28. What was the first song SHINee performed? I can’t remember! I loved SHiNee’s and Troublemakers performance! They were the best ones in my opinion.

  29. …………….
    i skipped through this video to get to the SHINee part (cos that’s how desperate and excited i am to see it) but then i see your message….. TT_TT
    so far Minho’s height looks pretty good compared to Simon ahahha!!
    and bwahaha aawww Jjong looks SO nervous and out of place!! poor guy hates English!!!

    *calmly begins watching from the beginning again*
    ahahah you guys taking the photos were hilarious!! you really can’t take normal photos can you?

  30. You guise did well, see? No problem. People probabaly just thought you were under-dressed on purpose ;).

    Thanks for posting the link to the footage of the live event because my youtube was so f***-ed all weekend while the YTMA were going on that I couldn’t watch ANY videos (choking after ~5s and then dying). It wasn’t my compy because now that it’s over I can see everything fine at high speed. Couldn’t even watch the Friday livechat until last night.

  31. Nope, not bad at all. I’m an American, and I didn’t even bother watching the New York performances.

  32. ahahaha Poor Kris he was so nervous x]

  33. Kind of upset I missed it. The times were confusing, I thought they would be going live same time as New York though that would be really early in the morning, I realized. Herher. Anyway..I will watch the rerun, yay! I think I’ve becoming a SHINee fangirl..

  34. With just the EYK crew, it’s a female majority, but with the extended youtube crew, it’s a male majority

  35. SooZee and Suzy in the same room

  36. I kind of teared up at the end—so nice that you got to see some of your former students, Martina!!

  37. Loved your interviews! I like Min more now after that interview… she’s so charismatic. I loved her US debut song when she first came out with Go Ahead… but not the biggest fan of Miss A.

    A question! What is freakishly tall by Kpop standards? My husband is wondering if he is average or will be considered very tall when we visit Korea. He’s a few inches shorter than Simon.

  38. Omg,I seriously can’t believe how much you guys achieved.From videos to show your family Korea’s safe to making interviews with k-pop stars at Youtube Music Awards!I know it might sound somehow strange but I’m so proud of you XD I remember your Inkigayo backstage video where you were showing stars’ tents and now you got one yourself!It makes me all excited and happy so can’t imagine how you must feel.It’s also amazing that you achived all of that just being yourselves!You aren’t scared to act funny and strange even if everybody around act formal and you don’t worry about what other people can think.I feel so unbelievably glad that we ‘normal people’ have such fantastic representatives(plus Simon representing us Polish people ♥) there in Korea.I’m not really good in expressing myself but I just want to say that really I love you.Thank you for all you do.I’m really curious what future will bring and I feel it will be bigger and bigger!

  39. “they don’t do normal well” HAHAHAHHHAHA oh god that got me right where it hurts to breathe
