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!

        • Not so far, I’ve been Googling it like crazy. So far only various cuts of the hosts. Nothing with the whole show. TT I got rickrolled into watching the New York one. OMG meh. I love the Pentatonix and Tiffany was there (poor Tiffany) but seriously soo…sooo…awkward, weird, and not really funny. I have no idea who the two guys hosting were but…not my cup of tea. The only cool parts were the performances (mostly). I really want to watch the Seoul version. I’m checking Tudou and all the other video posting sites, but nothing so far.

        • I knew about the short actor since I’ve seen him in some comedies, but overall: awkward. Mainly cause it was unscripted. If there is another YTMA maybe they should script some parts, to make it flow better… I don’t know.
          The part with Tiffany was a bit awkward. Scattered applause and a godawful joke (I love you Tiffany but seriously… haha). I was happy that they won and that hopefully Asian Music as a whole would get more recognition, but I also felt bad that they were exposed to such backlash and negative feedback as a result of winning. Sometimes I feel it would have been better if they didn’t win. Oh well, the earth didn’t end… now I’m just blabbering. But I knew they would win; I thought the Beliebers or Directioners would rape that share button, but I guess people just can’t beat out crazy Kpop fans (myself included haha).

        • I’ve been largely unplugged in the last month. What was the backlash?
          Although I’m not surprised, the internet can be a really cruel place. I’m happy GG won, although I really wanted Psy to win. His video last year was so huge, but…that *was* last year. Sone’s as a group are huge and really, really active, so if there was a fan group that could do it, it’d be them.

  12. People people, calm down. The SHINee teaser was obviously a clever plan by Simon and Martina for us to experience fangurl hyperventilation so none of us faint for the actual interview. Let us all take deep breaths, keep calm and Dorito on until hopefully Friday!

  21. That was so cute. Poor Kris though, you could tell he was new at it. I did like their chemistry, I think when it came to having to translate and then using those cue cards made it awkward. And that whole thing may have led to me being attracted to Kris.

    I thought Leigh was leaving awhile back, guess not so yay Leigh~
    And your former students, that is undoubtedly sweet that they went to see you. And what kind of people would want you do normal poses?! We don’t do “normal” here at Eatyourkimchi! By the way if I ever get famous or something, so doing that.

  28. I was going to ask who was taller, Kris or Simon. There must be something in the water that grows you Canadian men like mighty spruce trees. I’ve met to many Canadian guys that TOWER over me (And I’m 5’4″ TT__TT). And don’t worry Martina, we could only see your cute bear stockings. How has Meemers not ruined them yet?

    Jokes, no but seriously D: The want is strong. Kris on the TV screen making conversation and then SHINee bowing and introducing themselves in your tent. SIGH.
    I’m actually pretty jealous of them since they got to meet you lol xP

  32. I saw a picture of Key with a scratch on his face earlier today, and it’s in this video too. Maybe you’d be able to enlighten us on what happened?

    Anyway, YOU KNOW US TOO WELL! I’ve been waiting ALL DAY for a small clip of SHINee and S&M… but this was just too short!

  36. Awww, I didn’t watch the livestream. My connection is suck at that time. Way to choose to be suck. -_- | Hey, I thought you two looked fabulous! You know, in between heavily dressed people, the one with common clothes would actually standout! LOL. Oh, and you two are giant (or at least Simon, you are a giant). And Kris is not really a Korean. So maybe the gene is more superior? LOL. Wait. Gotta watch the vid now! XD

  39. “So you were watching! If you didn’t, you missed didn’t miss out on a lot of stuff.” <- small correction :p
    Naaaaaaaah I'm just joking. (or am i? dun dun dun) The Seoul YTMA was actually better than the NY one, imo.
    I was really happy to see all the artists perform, my favourites being Show Luo, Sungha Jung, Miss A, the Jinjo Crew (didn't know them…but they were awesome), SHINee, SISTAR…oh wait did I just list everyone? xD
    Ah, 4Minute Hyuna and Her Backup Dancers. And TM. Let’s just say that my parents left the room.

    The Miss A interview was fantastic! I’m so glad you got to talk about the JYP whisper :D Their expressions showed that they were totally aware of it too, lol.

    I’ve seen Sungha live, so I know his English is good :) My guess is nobody was quite sure what language they were supposed to talk in…

    Totally gonna try that David Choi trick next time, btw :D

    • yes NYC was sooo..um…awkward. I missed Seoul tho. I tuned in originally to try to find the replay. I was rickrolled into watching the whole NY show. I kinda felt PSY got robbed. GG were fine, Pentatonix were cool, but seriously…Eminem?!
