hellochloe's Confession

Yeah. After 2PM's Taecyeon's honest confession, I'm in a mood to do some confessing of my own as well. Prepare yourself. This might seem shocking coming from a kdrama addict, but: My favorite k-star is NOT an actor. Yup, he's from the kpop industry. I know nothing 'bout his songs, but after I watch his somewhat-of-an-interview show on local TV last July, I'm totally smitten by his humor, easy going attitude and his take on obsessive fans. Presenting, the man himself:

I know, I know. He's not that good lookin' compare to other k-actors, but I think his charm lies in his real life persona. And by luck, a few days ago I stumbled upon the videos of the said interview on youtube. And now I'm sharing it with you y'all. You HAVE TO watch this guys (even if it's just one peek!). I promise you, you won't regret it. My commentaries included:
Channel 8's Mascot: Rocker Baby Pow Pow 

 From left: Moe, Brian Joo and Mike.

First of all, let me explain the concept of the show: There are two hosts, Moe and Mike who are permanently attached to their laptops; on the viewer's right there's a chatbox that moves along as the SMS from the viewers comes flowing in. It's sort of a casual chat/ music show where viewers vote for what MVs they want to watch by SMS. It's pretty fun with those two around, and even more so when there are guest appearances. 

And a word of caution: Do not attempt to eat OR drink while watching this. Ignore this and you'll learn the hard way. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Part I: Introduction
Brian Joo is introduced by the two hosts, and Moe says,"For those of you who do not know who is Brian, you've been living in a cave..." So yeah, I guess that means I've been living in a cave? 'Cause really, I thought Brian was a k-comedian.
We start off with what he thinks of Malaysia: "The food here is the best I've ever tasted, the woman are nice, sweet.." Just the usual diplomatic answer, I'm sure he says that in every country he goes too (I mean, you can't say the food sucks and the woman are fugly, right?).

He talks about Hwanhee, the solo thing, and how Hwanhee's been preparing for a war movie right now. When asked whether he's interested in a role like that too, he says no, he's more of the American Pie type of guy. I snorted.

Part II: Warming Up
They talked about his childhood in America, and his culture shock when he moved back to Korea (this strikes a chord with both Mike and Moe, both of them grew up in the States as well). 

And we move on to what we all want to know: What's on his iPod? Everything. Eminem, Jay-Z, Usher, Justin Bieber...Moe's not impressed, sayin' it's all vanilla (LOL).

He commented on how different K-girls take pics of themselves, a popular culture otherwise known as selca. He does a *cute* imitation. More jokes on Matrix (The Chosen One), his hair (a backup dancer did it for him in one hour) and that lead to a gay joke? LOL this show is totally random.

Part III: Korean, English and Bahasa Malaysia 
Mike reads one of the msgs in bad Korean (the msg was mixed with k-words), which prompts BJ to say in his sexy Korean, "Why don't we do this whole thing in Korean, let's not speak English." The two hosts responded in BM instead (i.e. the malay language). HAHA. M&M=1, BJ=0

He continues reading the msgs on the screen, and some of them are down right cheesy, I even felt embarrassed for the sender's behalf. But he takes it all in stride, and what I was touched by what he said: 
"I totally understand what they (his fans) are going through. Growing up, I was a huge Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul fan (Moe: Vanilla!), and I even wrote Janet a letter sayin' I want to have your babies.." 
O-kay, that was a bit creepy but what he said about understanding his fans was really nice.

Guess who's his favorite hoobae? None other than my fav Suju member, Choi Siwon honey! They often hang out together, 'cause Siwon learns English from his roommate, but end up chatting with BJ more than studying. Love the bromance thing they got goin' on.

Of Eros, Six Packs And A Stinky T-Shirt
BJ reads one of the msgs saying he's ero/ a.k.a. erotic or sexy (I blush). And sexy leads to the removal of clothing. But he says no 'cause he's got six pack no more: "It's call the total one pack. I got it connected." O'course, six packs always prompts a beer joke. 

BJ turns down a marriage proposal and Mike gets ridiculed for not changing his T-shirt after a straight 10 hour gig. What did I told you about this show being totally random? Lovin' it!

Part IV: Welcome back to the Brian Joo Show! (a.k.a. Korea's Oprah)

Part V: You called me "Brain Joo" on Twitter?!!
"Dude, you called me a brain? It's like Pinky and the Brain the cartoon or somethin'"
Ugh. The annoying song from the cartoon just popped up in my head. 

Part VI: Twilight and The Purple Vortex

Apparently one of his friends is a werewolf in the movie franchise, so he has seen all 3 movies (he thinks the 3rd one is better than the 1st and 2nd). BJ thinks Mike looks like one of the werewolves and Moe looks like the one of the evil vampires; the Asian one. When Moe gets indignant, BJ said, "What do you look like? African-American? I don't think so!" LOL. 

Hwanhee And I Will Not Come Up With An Album
One of the msgs requested BJ to do a guerrilla dance. His response:

"I've imitated Hwanhee alot of times on national TV, but the thing is, if I do this now and he happens to see this on youtube, I GUARANTEE you we will would not come out with a new single."

Chloe Says: Man, if only all interviews were half this fun. I was laughing like a maniac at 2 a.m.
