Woohoo! Here’s the second of our interviews from our the Google Kpop Concert event. Last week we published our interview with the Wonder Girls, which was the easiest video to edit because they all spoke in English. For Sistar and MBLAQ, though, they spoke in Korean, so subbing them into English for you all took a lot longer. But it’s finally here! Woo ooh ooh oooooh! (that was our attempt to sing Sistar’s “Alone”. *Cough*)
We had a pretty hectic schedule to get to Sistar, since we were driving from YouTube headquarters to Google headquarters and we had zero time between events. In fact, they overlapped, so we were tearing out our hair trying to get there for the 5:30pm live broadcast. After breaking some speed limits (I mean, following the rules of the road perfectly legally) we arrived at Google headquarters juuust on time, and as we were running into the building we ran right past MBLAQ chilling in the parking lot standing beside their transportation. I was like, “Oh, isn’t that MBLAQ? NO TIME RIGHT NOW!!!” Yes. It was crazy.
We ran up to filming area and I ran into the kitchen to get water but I ran straight into Sistar! It was so funny, we’re all like, “OH! HI!” and started greeting each other awkwardly. But soon we started talking about my pink hair, and matching nails, and tattoos, and it turned into a funny conversation about using Korean slang, so that broke the ice. But, soon afterwards we were all rushed onto a tiny couch where we all squished together (oohh I was touching Sistar’s legs with my legs) and started broadcasting live before any of us knew it! Haha, such a funny start to the interview!
Anyways, here’s a secret for the blog readers only! The fan questions that were being asked to Sistar by the other live chat people were actually our interview questions, but at the last minute it was decided to to a live Google+ hangout, so the schedule got turned around and we were all flustered as to what the heck was going on, which is why any of you that saw the chat live, also saw the Korean-English translator as being flustered, as well as the rest of us looking around a bit confused. In the end, I think it worked out okay because Sistar were SO SUPER NICE and really understanding! They just rolled with the punches, and were really talkative both before, during, and after the interview. Unfortunately, we had to run downstairs to meet with MBLAQ right away (who were just dying of jet lag since they were the last group being interviewed) so we couldn’t stick around for too long for photos or anything. At that point, it felt like, 2 or 3am for all of us that flew in from Korea, so we were all just floored from jetlag, but luckily, we got CDs signed by everyone! YAYAAAA!!!!
