Our Interview with MBLAQ

June 9, 2012

FINALLY! You saw our Interview with Wonder Girls and our Interview with Sistar. Here, at last, is our Interview with MBLAQ. Yay! No more people emailing and tweeting us every day asking when the video will be up!

We put the interviews out in this order to be fair, since they were the last group that we interviewed in a totally freaking hectic day. It was a good hectic, of course, but an exhausting one. If you haven’t seen our Behind the Scenes with Wonder Girls, Sistar, and MBLAQ video, then check that out. That was all in one day. All of the interviews happened within, like, three hours. We ran from the Wonder Girls from YouTube Headquarters in San Bruno over to our Sistar live chat in Google Headquarters in Mountain View. While running in the parking lot to get to Sistar, we saw MBLAQ sitting in the parking lot, but didn’t even have a chance to say hi. Then, when we finished with Sistar, we ran downstairs to interview MBLAQ. BOOM!

We were exhausted by the end of it all, but didn’t feel it, mostly because everyone that we were interviewing were a lot more exhausted than we were. Hell: all we had to do was just sit down and chat with them. They, on the other hand, had to sit down and chat with us AND plan for, you know, a HUGE FREAKING CONCERT the next day. So, yeah, we’re all a bit dead. We’re glad that they agreed to our CRY skit, though. Ha! That was…embarrassing and awkward (but when are we NOT embarrassing and awkward? That just how we roll!).

We had another skit planned with them that would have been epic, but we didn’t have the time to do. We were going to start off the interview by telling MBLAQ that we had asked you all to submit your questions to MBLAQ, which you did, when we announced that we were going to the Google Kpop Concert. Then we’d say that we printed out some of the questions, at which point we’d pull out a ridiculous stack of papers. Then we’d read the first page like “Susan from Alabama asks ‘Dear MBLAQ. PLEASE MARRY ME!'” We’d then apologize for the awkward question, and then move on to the second question, which would ask for them to take their shirts off. Then we’d look at the third question and not even read it since it’s OOOOH SO NASTY. We’d flip through the huge stack of papers while MBLAQ would look around awkwardly. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN PERFECT! But we didn’t have time to do both that skit AND the Cry skit, so we stuck with the easier one. Yay!

But wait…didn’t we say something about MBLAQ signed CDs?

MBLAQ Autographed Album

You want an MBLAQ Autographed Album, don't you? OOOOH YES YOU DO!

And, yes, you saw that right. MBLAQ wrote their names all over their CDs. They touched those CDs, breathed on those CDs. Some of them even licked the CDs! That last part is not true. Anyhow, for those of you who want us to give you an autographed MBLAQ CD, here’s what you gotta do.

  2. I fell in love with MBLAQ when I first heard their album “BLAQ style”. I had just met my best friend Hannah and she’d introduced me to MBLAQ music. She played for me SHINee, MBLAQ, and Boyfriend. Of course, I had chosen MBLAQ because the talent I heard in their voices. When I first bought the song I had looked up many of their other songs. For example, “Y”, “This is War”, and “Stay”, those are just a few. I immediately bought all of their songs and introduced them to my other best friend Katie. She loves them now, too. Every time I open my cell phone, I see two pictures of MBLAQ, even that fills me with joy. I have been looking, ever since I first heard of them, for when they’re coming to America. I’ve spent the past three weeks watching “Hello Baby”, “Sesame Player”, and also “MBLAQ goes to school”. Many people tell me I’m obsessed, it’s true. Yet, overall, I originally fell in love with MBLAQ because of their talent, their personalities, and because, well, what’s not to love?

  3. YouTube username: iluvkittens2008 (yes i know, awkward username but hey, i was 11, cut me some slack) anyway, i started liking MBLAQ because of their unique voices and the way they blend together. . . plus the whole air-guitar-crotch-grab move in Mona Lisa ;P AHHH!!! jk (sort of) now i sound like a creepy noona even though im younger than them!!! okay, im going to stop now before i say something even more awkward.

  4. I fell in love with MBLAQ right at the moment their debut music video came out! ‘Y’ was the first music video I watched and I just immediately drowned myself with that song. I didn’t know the members at first but I fell for Lee Joon’s looks in that mv. After that song came out, I just wanted to learn more about them so I stalked them like a typical fangirl would do. I still love them and I follow them through their comebacks and promotion activities! When I saw them live for the first time at the Google-MBC concert, I screamed so loud everyone gave me weird looks. I love them so much and I’ll continue loving them.

  5. The moment I fell in love with MBLAQ is when I saw them on Hello Baby. They showed more of themselves no one has seen before, such as their fatherly side, and took great care of Leo, Lauren, and Dayoung. I got to know the member’s personalities better than any other show they’ve been it. Thank you for reading.

  6. i fell in love with mblaq because of seeing joon’s funny variety shows. I first saw mblaq on gayo daejun of 2010 but didn’t really acknowledge them. once i saw joon and mir though, i had the urge to look into their music and…… basically watch a crapload of videos with them in it LOL. so ive been in love with MBLAQ for two years now ♥ hope thats enough for good luck in this contest haha. but hwaiting to everyone else too :3

  7. I’m from Honduras, I never miss any of your videos and always fav them x_x next time could you please mention Latin America. Kpop is becoming huge over here. Also, please give me a chance with the MBLAQ CD giveaway. I always try, and never have I lost faith that once I’ll receive something. MBLAQ is the boy band that has changed my life with their music <3 – youtube account: @kawaiikiss14

  8. There were many moments that had me fall in love with MBLAQ. But the first moment that I fell in love with MBLAQ was when I was watching a video where MBLAQ were inhaling helium and making helium voices. I thought it was so funny and cute. I then went on to see who exactly MBLAQ was and voila here I am now with almost all there songs on my Ipod and anxiously waiting for their next album to come out. I LOVE THEM AND ALL THEIR WONDERFULNESS! Not to mention I even got my family hooked on them too! They are amazing and if I can get my entire family to like the same artist as me, then it’s a miracle in itself since they don’t care for foreign music all that much. So that was the first moment I fell in love with MBLAQ! So I hope I win, ^^! (Along with everyone else who wants the signed CDs)

  9. Hi Simon, Martina, and Spudgy! Um so I thought I would share
    how I fell in love with MBLAQ anyway even if I don’t win, it’s a nice story (I promise
    ^^). I won’t be able to write exactly
    what I feel about them down into words because honestly there are no words in
    the dictionary that would come even close but I can at least try :)

    MBLAQ were actually the band that introduced me to Korean pop culture. It was
    two years ago on the 27th of June when I was with my cousin Rebecca the day
    before she had to go back home and we would not be seeing each other for, I
    think it was, 8 months. So we had a few minutes left and she just out of the
    blue asked me if I had ever seen or listened to kpop before, I kind of
    dismissed the subject because I honestly had no idea what she was talking about
    but she insisted I watch ‘Oh Yeah’ and started playing the video… Well, I wasn’t
    really that interested and I got up to go but I remember as soon as the opening
    sequence started playing I turned around and I was drawn back to the computer.
    In the first few second of the song I was amazed at how 5 people could move in
    such perfect synchronization so that they looked like one. Of course my cousin
    was rambling off about Lee Joon’s abbs or Mir’s puppy face but I was more
    interested in the connection between the boys (sorry men) and how they seemed
    to work together (for lack of a better simile) like a machine – when one part
    moved: The other reacted. But then like
    all tragedy’s I was cut short as I was forced to move and say goodbye, but for
    the rest of the night I couldn’t stop replaying in my head their fluid dancing
    that seemed as if the music was the one trying to keep up and not them, or Mir
    and Cheondung’s (I didn’t know their names at the time) raps that just seemed
    to roll of the tongue.

    It wasn’t until a few months later when this had all been
    forgotten that I found myself sat up in the middle of the night with ‘Oh yeah,
    Oh yeah, Oh yeah yeah yeah’ constantly replaying in my head (try sleeping with
    that on the brain). So I grabbed my laptop and did as much research as possible
    until I finally found them. Watching Seungho, G.O, Lee Joon, Thunder, and Mir
    performing body rolls in HD at 3 in the morning was when I realised that I had
    lost all sanity (god help me) and I just started clicking on every video/reading
    every article about them that I possibly could.

    See, in my family I’m kind of isolated and where we live
    there is literally no diversity of race. Our community is almost all white and
    I had grown up with millions of stereotypes about different cultures being
    driven into me but seeing 5 TALL Asian boys dancing extraordinarily well,
    singing in English (or Engrish in Mir’s Case) and not doing math homework… It
    was like all these new possibilities opened up to me. I started downloading
    their music (legally might I add) and trying to support them as much as possible.
    I watched all of the video’s and was amazed by their talent on variety shows,
    the way they could make everyone laugh just by being themselves – that is what
    I aspired to be like.

    In the beginning I only knew a few key moves of the dances
    or some simple words that I could imitate but eventually as time passed and I
    started listening/practicing more: I found myself falling in love with dancing
    and I surprised myself as I found I have a talent for learning languages. I’ve
    made friends in the k-pop community that I feel closer to than anyone and
    without MBLAQ I would have never found Eat Your Kimchi! In fact I’m not sure
    what I would be doing If I hadn’t found MBLAQ, I’m planning on travelling the
    world and learning as much as I possibly can all because of them.

    If I was to pick a point in which I truly fell in love with
    MBLAQ I’m not sure what I would say, I knew from the beginning that they were
    special but I feel that my love for them built up over a long period of time. I
    know whenever I’m having a bad day that I can just watch an episode of Sesame
    Player and I’ll feel so much better, or when I’m feeling sad/alone I can just
    put my headphones on and the Bibimbap song will make me laugh. MBLAQ is one of
    those groups that you can just feel so close to as they are so natural, they
    aren’t really celebrities – they’re my oppa’s. I’ve come to love more bands and
    I have even gotten into Japanese culture too but I know that I will always
    remember MBLAQ because they say you never forget your first love right?

    I love them all individually and I hope that one day my
    children will too, they will continue on to make great music as they get older
    and of course will one day settle down to have families of their own but every
    A+ knows that they will forever be our young boys. They have proven to me that
    you don’t have to live within the boundaries and pushed me to get out into the

    Sorry for such a long essay but I just couldn’t think how
    else to show my love for them, I’m not really much of a writer but when you
    feel that passionately about something, the words just come to you. Thank you
    for reading and forever Viva La Spudgy! Love you, EmmaLouise14100 (my youtube username) xx

  10. The first time I saw MBLAQ perform was on Music Bank. I had been walking by while my sister was watching the show and all of a sudden MBLAQ caught my eye :) And I’ve loved them ever since! After that, I listened to all their songs and watched some of their variety shows. I fell in love with G.O.’s amazing voice, Seungho’s charismatic leadership, Thunder’s cool appearance, and Mir’s and Joon’s quirky ways :) they’re all such amazing people and they’re definitely one of my favorite Kpop groups. I love their musical style and unique personalities. I can’t wait for the day I’ll get to meet them or at least see them perform because they got me more interested in Kpop and Korean culture.

  11. At first, I didn’t really like MBLAQ. But as I was scrolling down, looking for the next episode of Infinite’s Sesame Player, I saw a link to MBLAQ’s. I said “Why not”, clicked on it, an watched how crazy and whacked and childish they actually are. I found each of them to be super unique, and different in all of there own ways, but their differences brought them together, and made them like a family. I listened to a few of their songs again, and found that through their quirkiness, all of their hard work in singing and dancing was pulled through to make a completely wonderful and very successful song and dance. I absolutely adore them, and they have quickly climbed the poll that consists of my favorite K-Pop artists. <3 Plus, I super adore Thunder. If I could, I would marry that man.

  12. Honestly,I started loving MBLAQ just after I saw your interview with them because other than that I haven’t seen them “in real action” . ( That was the first time I watched MBLAQ talking and laughing ,because before I just heard two of their songs : Mona Lisa and This Is War.)Of course I liked them before , but I didn’t LOVE them like I do now . I fell in love with them because they are really…umm…I can’t express myself..They are really nice and cute and they made me laugh(by that they won my heart).+ I was very impressed by the fact that one of the members is a fan of eatyourkimchi . P.S. There’s a lot of space in my heart , so don’t worry Spudgy , you’ll never be replaced .You’ll always be my number1.And I love you too Simon and Martina >-<. Bye ~

    at first MBLAQ was just another kpop group, I had heard a couple of songs and I really liked them, it was Sesame Player which made me fall in love with them. The fact that they where completely and utterly themselves, dorky and not caring what people would think, that they where so honest made me fall in love with them. I have always struggled with my self-confidence, thinking too much about what others think of me, and MBLAQ help me a lot to get rid of it, to dare to me myself 100% all the time. And besides their dorkyness and honesty they make some of the best music out there, and puts their hearts into it, and you can hear that. I love these boys – without them I would still be stuck a very insecure version of myself – and every time I’m down, they can always make you laugh – I don’t care what they do, how many albums or songs they make, or how long it takes them, as long as they’re happy and healthy, and I’m gonna be here – on the other side of the world – supporting them all the way, no matter what they’ll do :)
    you’re so lucky you got to meet them ^^

  16. Well, I heard “Y” by them when I first got into kpop and I really liked it, but I really fell in love with them after I gave up tumblr for lent haha, all I had was youtube and I think I randomly found out they were doing “Hello Baby” so I started watching that and I loved it! They were so dorky and funny so I would get bored waiting for the new episodes and I started watching their other variety shows and I just loved how spazzy and ridiculous they could be and I loved how they left me dying of oxygen loss from laughing so hard. It was sort of funny to go back and watch their MV’s after that because they’re so serious in their MVs and it’s so different from how they really act. I feel like they, more than any other band, would get along with me best if I were to ever meet them because I’m a huge spaz and a dork to boot and I think that’s what I love about them best. They’re not afraid to make fools out of themselves or “ruin their image”- I personally think it gives them a better image because I like dorky MBLAQ more than “sexy” MBLAQ…though I do like sexy MBLAQ too but oddly enough I choose dorky over sexy ;p Sorry…that was really long but it was sort of instant love for them once my other bands stopped promoting and I’m pretty sure I’m a fan for life of MBLAQ. Wafurrs for the win!! (youtube name: spzimefrk16 (lol you recognize the name? ;p))

  17. Martina you are such an amazingly, hilarious, lovable dork (I mean that in the best way possible!) I don’t have the courage, confidence, nor the comedic timing to ever do what you did in front of MBLAQ in the intro! So jealous!!  Love your skills and talent. Makes me crack-up, love, and idolize you more. You are a role model and an inspiration!!! <3

    Thanks for all the hard work you do btw, I hope you’re enjoying every minute of it… Martina has some seriously big balls too. I would be nervous just talking to them much less acting out a small skit with them… you should share your secret with us ;)

  20. i first fell in love with MBLAQ when i heard their song cry. it was such an amazing song and then i started watching shows with them in it and found out more about the whole group. they are all equally amazing with their own characteristics that stood out in the group. not only are they talented but they have wonderful personalities and awesome looks (; LOVE MBLAQ!!!

  21. I first fell in love with MBLAQ when I watched them on Hello Baby. Only because before I didn’t pay attention to them as much. At the time they were just another kpop boy band to me, but after watching Hello Baby I got to know MBLAQ when they were off stage or a different side of them. Seeing them act as themselves made me like them even more. Also, I didn’t first like them for their looks. They have amazing talent and I love how childish they are because It’s always good to be not so serious. Furthermore, I fell in love with ALL their songs. I just became so attached to them that I constantly listened to their songs, literally all day. Even if the songs weren’t recent they were still great and catchy. I really love MBLAQ now and will never forget the moment I fell in love with them when watching Hello Baby. It was very touching and I felt like it brought me closer to them, thinking, they aren’t just another boy band. Even when I never been to any of their concerts because I live far away, I’ve watched majority of their performances and tv show appearances. I really loved them that much(: I thought that they are unique in their own way and that’s why I love them so much.

  24. The moment when I fell in love with MBLAQ is hard to explain. Love is a strong feeling that can’t be explained through words. Love is when you know you can’t live without that experience with that person or people. I feel the same way with MBLAQ; I wondered to myself ‘what was I doing and not knowing that MBLAQ existed.’ I encounterd MBLAQ by just watching random videos, at that time I was still new to KPOP and I wanted to find out more about it.

    The first video that I saw from them was “Mona Lisa” and that caught me of guard because the song has a spanish vibe to it. I decided to get that song, but I didn’t get to check out the group itself. That’s one mistake I made. When I found out about you guise, Simon & Martina, my love for MBLAQ increased when I found out that you have reviewed a song from them. I was being more exposed to MBLAQ without even knowing.

    My friend, who was also being exposed to KPOP recently, told me about MBLAQ. I got excited since theyre one of my fave groups. We both found out about the show they got featured in which was “Sesame Player”. From there on out, MBLAQ has won over my heart.

    Love builds up, and yes there’s such things as love at first site. But you still have to ‘test’ them out. My teacher told me and the class that there’s 5 stages of getting through love. I’ve pass those stages with MBLAQ, but of course in a different way xD. MBLAQ is a unique group, and they’ll be that way.

    Thank you Simon & Martina for making me like KPOP in general. You guise rock!!

  31. When did I first fall in love with MBLAQ… well the first song adn MV of theirs I heard and watched was “Oh Yeah” I thought it was pretty good (I thought the Oh Yeah arm dance was weird at first but after awhile I just kept dancing like that when I said or someone else said “Oh yeah!”) I wasn’t really too into them then though, but when Mona Lisa came out I became their fan :-) What can I say? They’re actually really talented men. I also became an even bigger fan as I watched them in Idol Army and Hello Baby, they seem like really cool guys.
    Anyways, hope I win a signed CD.

  32. I liked MBLAQ, when I started to listen kpop. They were one of the first idols I knew about.
    But I think I fell in love with them when I watched Idol army, OMG! I really loved that show, and I liked that they were so real, funny, cute, kind and of course handsome! (:
    Actually my bias of MBLAQ is Mir<3, but when I was watching that show, I always changed my favorite one in every episode! LOL, THEY MADE ME LOVE EACH OF THEM

    And my love for them is growing everyday!

    I would like to have their album, because it is impossible in my country (Mexico) to find any kpop cd, is so sad ㅠㅠ, and OMG! Those cds have MBLAQ's signatures! I would be the happiest girl on the earth! (:

    Ps. Sorry for my bad english ㅠㅠ

  37. Hello Simon and Martina! I am Laura from Austria! I wonder if i can still participate in the CD-competition, but I still want to tell you this even if I am too late ^_^

    To be honest, I didn’t like K-POP in general at first and was forced to listen to it by my friend. I was used to Alternative Rock which is so different, that I couldn’t stand the beat and the sound of K-POP songs. But my attitude to K-POP changed drastically when I listened to MBLAQ’s ‘CRY’. It was somehow love at first sight – or at firsten listen? ^_^
    From that point on I loved MBLAQ, especially G.O with his outstanding voice. And with MBLAQ my love for K-POP grew too <3 now I am a proud A+ and hope i can see them once in reality…

  39. Ooh, this is such a hard question… I guess the way I really fell in love with MBLAQ was partly because of you guise. The first time I even heard about MBLAQ was through the This is War Music Monday. I LOVED your review, and I had to watch the music video. When I did, I fell in love with the song and the video, and I started laughing at all of the parts with the plot holes, even though it’s SUCH a sad video, and when Joon died I loved it, even though it was so sad and realistic. It still almost makes me cry when I watch it today.
    Speaking of Cry, I loved that music video too. It’s so artsy and such a creative, expressive dance and amazing vocals. Mona Lisa, Y, Oh Yeah, Stay – all of these songs are amazing, and the dances and videos are so great too.
    I guess that I really love MBLAQ because all of their songs, dances and videos are so artsy and creative – well, not artsy, not all of the time, but certainly creative. They’re all very…MBLAQian. MBLAQ has a style that shows up in all (or almost all) of their songs, dances and videos. And no, I’m not just talking about the accordions. Though I like those, too. It’s something else, something purely MBLAQ, and I can’t quite place it. There’s something about them that only a few other groups have ever had in them for me.
    I also really love watching things like your interview with MBLAQ, where they’re not on stage, not really, and they’re just laughing with each other and playing around, because many idols in different music cultures around the world (cough cough…America…cough cough) are often portrayed as better than regular people, or they don’t appear to be regular people because whenever you see them they’re always acting or singing or dancing. K-pop is less like this, I think, than some other places, but maybe I haven’t really looked into American culture – I mean, other cultures – in that way much. I’m Canadian (where the most popular music is American), so I’m not just saying this with no experience of American music culture. Anyway, these interviews and such make you see that MBLAQ (or any other idols, for that matter) interact with each other just like everybody else. Your interview (especially the goodbye part, where the rest of MBLAQ were teasing Mir about saying goodbye just to HIS fans) and other times like these really make me fall more in love with MBLAQ.
    Sorry if this is too long and boring for you to read, but I really love expressing my feelings about this kind of thing.
    I’m a YouTube subscriber, by the way, and my username is AngelaCat13.

  40. I fell in love with MBLAQ because of their differences in personality and how genuine they are. My fav maybe Mir but I love each of them to where sometimes I can’t tell who’s my favorite. They each have this flair about them that appeals to me. Like how sweet and funny G.O is and how comical Mir and Joon are together and how Seungho can keep them under control and still be a kid and how Thunder is so protective of his noona, Dara. MBLAQ definately has made me happy in many ways and one of them is inspiration. Thanks so much MBLAQ for giving me something I didn’t have before, inspiration to be myself.
