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. The first time I fell in love with mblaq was when I watched Y, 15 seconds into the video. The beat was freaking catchy and I mean, Joon showering? Their dance was mesmerizing. I fell even more in love when I watched Idol Army and a bunch of other variety shows. they were just so charming and so hilarious. That was when I got to see the offstage side of them, and I just loved them even more. And watching this video, I feel like I love them even more. They’re just so honest and I just love them <3

  4. Actually, I first fell in love with her sister Sandara Park way back when she’s still popular here in the Philippines. I’ve been a constant fan of her until she became the member of 2NE1 group. Have continued being crazy fan when I found out that she has a brother (Thunder with the strikes of lightning LOL) that was also in a popular group. <3 <3 <3 My love for the members and songs of MBLAQ started with Thunder and eventually with the other members. I just really really LOVEEE them!! ^___^

  10. 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?

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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 ~

  15. 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)

  18. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. Well the reason why I fell in love with MBLAQ is when i saw Mona Lisa. I thought the dance was really funny. Especially the moving head thing. lol. Then, when they had their second comeback with the song It’s War, I realized that their really talented and are really good dancers. Also, i fell more in love when i saw the video of Mir trying to say waffle. It was hilarious. Their so Hot and Cute. This is why i <3 MBLAQ. Also. MBLAQ i the Reason that i got my Little Sister into KPOP :D

    I fell in love with MBLAQ when I randomly came across their Y video on youtube. Joon’s acting was amazing and I loved the dance and song. Looking up a video of them waking up and Mir speaking English cemented them into my heart.

  25. I think it was in late 2010 I discovered them, right when I discovered kpop. It was their song Stay and I immideatly fell in love with them! Such a unique showoff with five amazing voices that sounds even more amazing together. They had such a manly power to them that I just couldn’t resist. I’ve been an A+ since then and basically enjoying every minute of it.

  26. The moment I fell in love with MBLAQ was the day I first experienced seeing men wearing make up and funny outfits. THE DAY I GOT INTO KPOP! From then I’ve seen them grown and see that they’re still dorks and awesome guys. And.. I love dorks and awesome guys. Especially when they’re in one… EM BELLACK<3

  27. I fell in love with MBLAQ when I was first getting into kpop. I was watching Oh Yeah and I was like… ‘Wait, so they’re Korean… singing a Spanish sounding song in Korean/Spanish and English, and one of them has a mustache. Yeah….’ And that was the moment I knew I was gonna love them.

  28. One day I was watching MBLAQ Sesame Player episode 9 where
    they were playing tag at the playground. Watching them do that and genuinely
    enjoying each other’s company gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling as I thought of
    all the times I ran out of the classroom with my friends to play tag. Ah.. the
    good old days…

    Anyway, I had always really liked MBLAQ’s songs and , but it
    was their ability to make me take another trip down memory lane (YAY!! MEMORY
    LANE!!!) that made me really fall in love with them!

  30. (Sorry about my poor english, it isn’t my first language) At first, I didn’t really like MBLAQ. To me, they didn’t seem like the most attractive group, or the ones with the coolest dances. They were just there. But then I fell in love with the reality show, Maknae Rebellion (MakBanShi). That’s when I met Mir for the first time. His aegyo and cuteness *sigh* But it didn’t end there. I was already a huge fan of the groups, SHINee and U-KISS, so obviously, I would watch Raising Idol. And guess what? Cheondoong was there too. :) (Proud to say he is now my bias from MBLAQ). I realized that they had their own charm and couldn’t even be compared to other groups after I watched their Hello Baby. They’re such a good group on shows… and in dramas (coughJooncough). I am in the process of watching the rest of their reality shows (yes, I am in love with those as well ^_^). I would say that I’m a fairly new A+ but I do indeed love their music and they are slowly crawling up my bias list. Oh and I think another reason why I got into their music was because they sang one of the opening themes for anime that I really like so that worked out quite well XD. So there you go, I fell in love with MBLAQ because of their amazing-ness on reality shows (and because of Mir). So yeah, thanks for giving us A+ a chance to win something as cool as a signed CD! Gomasseumnida!

  33. AHHHHH. I was SO EXCITED when I found out you guys would be interviewing MBLAQ because they are my absolute favorite.

    The moment I fell in love with MBLAQ was during their sesame player. I already was a huge fan of Cry, but this was their first show I ever watched. There was a short cut at the beginning of one of the episodes and it was Seungho KNITTING. I was ECSTATIC when I found out when he could knit. I knit when I watch Korean TV, so you could probably imagine my reaction. It is always really exciting to see a celebrity or musician I really like enjoying a quirky hobby or skill that I also enjoy! Also, Seungho + magic tricks + knitting = ultimate idol bias of ALL TIME. ALL TIME.

    Thanks for being so awesome you guys! (My youtube username is Hannieah)

  35. Hi Simon and Martina! This is my first time leaving a comment and I really want to tell you that I love your videos and that you look so cute together!

    What made me fall in love with MBLAQ was their ‘engrish’, their simplicity and their choreographies.
    Last year I went to my english class and one of my friends showed me a video of MBLAQ speaking english. I thought they were funny and when I got home I started to watch their music videos and what really got me into them was that the choreographies were so easy that I could do them too (and I suck at dancing!). But What I like the most about them is that they seem to be humble and easy going. I’m pretty sure that if I didn’t know MBLAQ and I came across them on the street I wouldn’t realize that they are idols!

  36. The first time song I heard from them was the song “This Is War”, I’m been honest. I fall in love with Lee Joon’s smile, I just keep my eyes in him and G.O. (who doesn’t appear to much). I love the song so much that I begin to find more music about them. Every single video I love it, and I love how you guys (Simon and Martina) comment about their videos, I’m just so distractic looking at them that in the first time I don’t know what is going on in the video, thank you Simon and Martina. One of my favorite videos of MBLAQ is “Y”, and when I say the word “why”, the next thing that I say is, “Give it to my Y, listen to my Y”. This one of my favorite bands, and I know that this guys going to succeeded in the future.
