Jung Joon Young Band received inspiration from Jung Joon Young"s dad at the November 14 installment of "Immortal Song".
The band covered the vintage hit song "If I" through Ahn Chi Hwan, and Jung Joon Young blew all and sundry away with his charisma. Earlier than their performance, he said, "It"s a song that my dad sang so much when i used to be young."
Their trustworthy functionality inspired everyone! It was once ALi (Highlight for Spoilers) who took the overall win in this episode.

Through her "Sweet and Tasty TV" program on YouTube, she reaches millions of viewers who tune in to watch the adventures of her on-screen personalities like Billy Jin, a K-pop enthusiast, and Granny Kim, a fun-loving senior. KpopStarz interviewed Professor Oh about her educational work with "Sweet and Tasty TV."
(Photo : Professor Oh ) KpopStarz: Why were you inspired to create educational videos, particularly those who target fans of Korean culture?
Professor Oh: Initially, there were no intentions of creating YouTube content, on a regular basis. I uploaded my first Korean lesson back in 2008 when there were less than five Korean language videos on YouTube. Unexpectedly, quite a number of views accumulated on my first Korean lesson video. A surprising 2 million views.
Due to my audiences demand for more content and my interest in filmmaking, I began uploading videos every week. Much of my audience is made up of K-pop and K-Drama fans. I wanted to share with them a deeper cultural insight on Korea aside from its entertainment aspect.
KpopStarz: Do you watch Korean dramas? If so, what is your favorite series? Which dramas do you think have made the strongest impact on people who would like to learn about Korean culture?
Professor Oh:The latest Korean drama I watched to completion was Misaeng. My favorite Korean drama of all time? I want to say Winter Sonata, however I imagine Id have a different opinion of it watching it today than when it was first released 13 years ago. Boys Over Flowers was cheesier than any pizza Ive ever eaten but was still funny to watch.
Dramas based on historical events and characters seem to have a stronger impact for those interested in learning about Korean culture. K-Dramas like Jewel in the Palace show you the traditions of old Korea. Be mindful that film productions are not percent accurate depictions of the past. These moving pictures are based on references and documented facts. After all, none of us were alive centuries ago.
(Photo : Professor Oh ) KpopStarz: I love your parody videos and on-screen personalities because they help to make difficult subjects easier to understand. Do you find that audiences absorb the lessons you are teaching with more ease than when they are taught by instructors who do not use comedy?
Professor Oh: Humor can go a long way. Entertainment is engaging. It may appear that my various characters were created to increase attention spans, however, they were born from necessity. The Korean language uses honorifics, meaning the way you speak to elders differ from when you speak to your friends. There are common titles such as oppa and unni that I needed to demonstrate to viewers.
My Korean grandmother was thousands of miles away and I didnt know a place to adopt one nearby, so I decided to be my own granny. My native Korean buddies were too shy to act. Thus, I became my own "oppa," "unnie," "hyung," "ahjumma," "ahjussi," and more. At the time, I used to collect wigs for no particular reason. I finally put them to good use and experimented with various looks. Thats how K-pop loving Billy Jin, foodie Taekwon Do, party animal Granny Kim, and the studious Professor Oh were born.
(Photo : Professor Oh ) KpopStarz: What was your first video personality? How do you create new personalities and who serves as your inspiration?
Professor Oh: My first character was Professor Oh. I didnt give too much thought to this character, for the first Korean lesson; I just used my last name and was myself. For a large portion of my YouTube videos, I developed the personality to be more studious and to focus more on topics relating to sightseeing, culture, and history. Lately, in the Korean Culture Corner, Professor Oh is a closer representation of who I am off-camera.
Every character focuses on a particular subject. Each personality is developed based on their main interests. Billy Jin typically does episodes on fashion, K-pop, cafes, trends, and everything girly. Her boyfriend Taekwon Do loves to eat. Anything with food, its handled by this oppa. He has very relaxed eyes partially because hes super laid back, but also because of food coma. Granny Kim? She parties until dawn and loves adding a shot of soju into bowls of bingsoo wherever she goes.
People in my life are my inspiration. Granny Kims best friend Bongja is modeled after my fancy grandmother, who never leaves the house without putting her red lipstick on. She likes to have her hair big and voluminous. Taekwon Do is how I see the typical man: meat-loving, attempting to be a good boyfriend by taking his girl to karaoke, and holding her many shopping bags. Billy Jins mother is inspired by my own mother from ten years ago when she wore mismatching patterns and had permed hair. My mother is much more fashionable now and appears as herself on my videos.
KpopStarz: What is one of your favorite K-pop parodies?
I have a thing for guys dressing up as girls and shaking their booty. You can never go wrong with parodies where male comedians dress in scandalous clothes and perform Brown Eyed Girls Abracadabra and Girls Generation Gee. PSY"s covers of Beyonces Single Ladies is gold. That man can dance.
KpopStarz: Who is your favorite K-pop act?
Professor Oh: As much as I enjoy a wide range of K-pop singers, I am particularly in love with YG Family. Big Bang and 2NE1 for life. I fantasize about becoming an art director so I can be part of their epic music video production. Or at least go behind-the-scenes and contribute to their creative process. Dream on.
KpopStarz: Do you think foreigners have more difficulty with understanding the Korean language than culture? If so, why?
Professor Oh: Everything is relative. If youve grown up in an Asian household, it may be easier to understand Korean culture than learning the language. If you have a knack for learning languages but was raised in a culture far from Asia, perhaps understanding the Korean language is easier. In any case, the best way to learn any language and culture is to go to the source: its native country.
KpopStarz: What are some of your future plans? Where would you like to see "Sweet and Tasty TV" go, in the future?
Professor Oh: I have an idea jar overflowing with where Id like to take "Sweet And Tasty TV." For one, I am in the very early stages of writing a book using my characters. The basic plot is down, but somehow Ill have to find the time to develop it into a full-fledging book. My focus is currently more towards producing content for my YouTube channel and website. Viewers often ask me to continue Snack Tub Korea, so perhaps I shall. Stay tuned.

On November 6, the 17th department Military Band held their annual autumn concert, where Super Junior contributors Shindong, Lee Sung Min, and Lee Sung Min’s wife Kim Sa Eun performed.
Kim Sa Eun posted a photo of the program to her Instagram account on November 5. The program showed that the 3 of them were covered up to accomplish at the concert. Despite the truth that Shindong’s song can’t be observed in the photo, it sounds as if that the married couple conducted the duet “Something More” from the musical “Rudolf.”
Kim Sa Eun then posted a photo of herself with the Great Junior members to her Facebook on November 6, in addition more than one the opposite performers. In the caption, she wrote, “I’ve just get back from a friendly appearance at the concert hosted through the 17th Division Military Band. It used to be fantastic to peer your face back after so long. We were in a position to do a duet again for the primary time in a while, so i used to be happy! I became even happier that we were capable of carry out this type of meaningful song! ♥ all the performers did a super job~ Ten-hut!”
Their appearance in the footage has meaningful meaning, as these days Super Junior celebrates their 10th anniversary. Even if the 2 couldn’t celebrate at the aspect of their fellow members, it’s great to see them doing neatly in the army. Shindong enlisted on March 24 of this year, whilst Lee Sung Min followed in a while thereafter on March 31.

Hey Soompiers! I have some cool news about an upcoming project this is eager about bringing K-pop to the hundreds – yet unlike Soompi’s news-oriented focal point this project is all about thinking bigger, like, big screen bigger!
What occurs whilst you pluck a best idol out of Seoul and drop him off in small-town America? the beginning of a really, truly amusing romantic comedy that would incorporate the slick choreography we’ve come to be expecting from K-pop and a tale that every one people K-pop fanatics might be ready to attach with. The story, subsidized via Wilmer Valderrama, is planned for a feature film – hitting theaters across the united states and introducing more audiences to the entirety that K-pop has to offer.
We’ve synched up with Briana Frapart (the film’s writer and producer) and Aimee Lee Lucas (producer) to determine precisely how you can sign up for in the making of the film and make your voice heard. PSY could have presented K-pop to track listeners and Youtube aficionados, but this project goals to introduce K-pop to filmgoers everywhere.
Being produced with a team of professionals in the box of K-pop music and dance (from Lydia Paek, Keone + Mari Madrid, Quest Crew, and Ellen Kim to call a few), the film is going to turn K-pop how it used to be intended to be shown – and may come with some wonderful cameos as neatly as the stellar cast!
The KPOP Project team introduced a website just the day prior to today to get fans concerned with the making of the film, yes, but also to give back to the fans that experience been supporting K-pop in the US these sorts of years. It’s thank you to determination of fans like you that we are spoiled by super acts coming to the states just about each month. Enroll this stream and bring some great acts, and genuinely-earned recognition, to theaters around the U.S.!
Some of the perks you'll be able to get keep of from their crowdfunding campaign include: tickets to the film’s 2017 L.A. premiere, walk-on roles, the opportunity to be a further throughout the concert scenes (free concert!), a commute to Korea for filming, dance classes from the film’s choreographers themselves, film swag and way more!
We’ll be keeping you up to date with the film’s news and bringing you some exclusive policy on production, so remain tuned for some exciting announcements! Let us know your mind under in the comments section, we’d love to grasp what you’re thinking!
