TWICE+ CHANNEL

What’s up everyone! Today we will be reviewing some content on the TWICE+ Channel on VLIVE! If you guys have not heard already, a couple of your favorite Kpop stars have VLIVE Plus channels where you can purchase a membership for the channel and watch exclusive content! You can post, chat, and check out exclusive contents on the artists’ channel and more! It’s really cool!

 

Because we have the TWICE+ channel membership, we will be reviewing a broadcast that TWICE member Jihyo did a couple of weeks ago! It’s called “지효의 첫 번째 Candy Night – CAM2”, aka Jihyo’s Candy Night V Radio Show! The original video with a frontal camera was on the regular TWICE channel, but members of the TWICE+ channel were able to see the view from camera 2!

The beginning of the video begins with Jihyo explaining everything above, and also going through the comments. She mentions that a lot of TWICE fans wished her a happy birthday because the day of the broadcast was actually on her birthday, February 1st! She continues with playing the first song for the show, “First Time”! It’s actually quite interesting seeing the recording of the show from a different camera because you can see everything around her, rather than just what’s in front of her. You can see how she has her script, pen, phone, and microphone in front of her. It makes things a little more intimate because everything is in open view.

The topic of the show was for the month of February. Jihyo encouraged everyone to leave their stories about February on the fan free talk board, which she would go back and read. Jihyo begins explaining why she likes the month of February and it’s because it’s her birth month, as well as the month where a lot of graduation ceremonies are held, as well as how short of a month it is. During this time, the camera was moved quite often, which was one small complaint I didn’t like about the beginning of the broadcast. The camera movements and constant changing made me a little dizzy LOL.

To not spoil further every single thing that happened during the broadcast, I will sum it up for you! During the show, she tells stories, and reads fans comments. One story was about how her mother was in labor on January 30th, and how she was born the first of February! She also explains how fans donate money to patients on her birthday which she is really thankful for. Later in the broadcast, she reads more fans comments, particularly one where a fan talks about how she became the leader of a dance performance and lead the performance. They chose TT, she taught it, and they all performed it. Jihyo was very proud and impressed on how confident the fan was and how she was able to do so. She also receives a message from a fan who was born on the same day as her, and also wants to become a singer. The fan had auditioned for JYP Entertainment, but did not get into be a trainee. Although she didn’t get in, she continues to pursue her dream and has followed TWICE since their SIXTEEN times. This really moved Jihyo as the leader of TWICE.

The broadcast was overall a very relaxing broadcast that felt like a one on one talk with Jihyo. She was able to read comments and messages from fans, as well as reply to them during the broadcast and give her input. She seemed to have fun, and fans were very sweet to her. At the end of the broadcast, she thanked fans for tuning in and apologized for stuttering since it was her first broadcast. The PD staff then surprised her with a birthday cake and sang the birthday song for her. Jihyo blew the candles and made a wish, as well as put on the last song which was TWICE’s “One in a Million”, which she sang along to. She thanked everyone, and said her goodbye.

 

Although I’m not an avid TWICE fan like the rest of the Kpop Dallas staff, I did appreciate this broadcast! Jihyo seems like a kind leader who truly cares about the fans and took the time to surprise everyone with a broadcast on her birthday. Despite the camera movements in the beginning, the broadcast was smooth to the end, and was worth watching. Although it’s not in super HD quality, it was still nice enough to watch! I highly recommend getting the membership for your favorite stars so you can also watch some great broadcasts and comment/share your stories with your favorite idol too!

[VFRIENDS] 2017 GLOBAL V LIVE TOP10 – EXO

 

1

Hi everyone! Today we will be reviewing a new event that recently happened through VLIVE named “2017 GLOBAL VLIVE TOP 10” which in a nutshell was a sort of an award given to the VLIVE top 10 channels! The “V Truck” visited the groups that earned these awards and brought them their trophy! Today, we will be focusing on EXO’s acceptance speech and video.

 

From the beginning of the video, it was rather humorous as the boys of EXO greeted the VLIVE man enthusiastically. Everyone noticed how he couldn’t see with the VLIVE bobble-head type helmet on his head, and even mentioned that he should “poke peepholes” so he could see. LOL2

When they settled down, they began the broadcast and had every member greet in a different language, with Sehun in Chinese, D.O in English, Chanyeol in Japanese, Sehun in French, Baekhyun in Thai, Chen in German, Kai at first in Russian but then Tagalog, and lastly they wanted Xiumin to greet in an African language.

Although EXO was currently undergoing busy schedules, they made time out of their busy lives to take part in the VLIVE broadcast to thank their fans for being selected as the VLIVE top 10! Due to the occasion, Chanyeol states that they should choose a member to MC, and nominates Xiumin because he is the only member that currently has blonde hair, thus making him stand out. Xiumin says that he would struggle so he would rather not, and nominates Suho for his ability to speak well.

6Suho begins by saying that last year was a great year for their VLIVE channel, and that he personally, was a star that brought a lot of views. The members question him asking if that was verified and if there were statistics to prove that LMAO Chanyeol says that he was saying that to receive more hearts during the broadcast, and Suho adds that he hired part-timers to do nothing but hit the heart button LOL Which is one thing I absolutely love about these kinds of broadcasts; you get to see the members joke around with each other like friends rather than colleagues.

 

The award ceremony continues with Suho taking the script from the VLIVE man and continuing with the broadcast. Suho explains that the award was basically based on the number of hits and number of hearts and posts converted into VLIVE points, thus giving the top 10 channels of 2016. The VLIVE man presents the boys with their trophy which is shaped like a circle and has EXO GLOBAL VLIVE TOP10 written on it. It was heavy and really nice.

D.O gives a small acceptance speech, and everyone teases him saying it’s exactly like the time he won a medal in the movie “My Annoying Brother”. Suho then begins saying that EXO will pledge to do more VLIVE broadcasts for this year, like D.O’s soybean paste stew broadcast that as the member’s of EXO said, created a mass buying of soybean paste — I totally can see that happening. I ended up making the stew after watching it too! LOL

Baekhyun mentions that he wants to do a broadcast where he is in a doll suit and gives out free hugs, and no one would know. Sehun states he wants to create a broadcast where all of the members pets gather (which made it sound like a pokemon battle when someone mentioned BATTLE?? LOL).

9

To be honest, I would so watch a broadcast of them gathering their pets. I absolutely love animals and seeing the boys with their pets would be so adorable! The boys then read comments and one fan comments that they want to see them drink (me too, that sounds like it’d be a real show LOL) and Chanyeol mentions that they’ll have to rate it 19+, which everyone was down for (oooo).

 

According to the broadcast, the countries with the most active VLIVE EXO fans were China, Korea, and Thailand in that order. The video with the most posts was Suho’s EXO’LUXION video, which was loved by fans as he interacted with them throughout the whole broadcast.

To not spoil the whole broadcast, they continued to talk about videos on their channel that had mosts posts, views, etc, each being surprised with the results. They talked about the broadcasts the liked and about their own personal broadcasts through EXOmentary, as well as showed a couple clips from older broadcasts. The boys concluded the broadcast by signing the EXO sign that they took from the V Truck and once again thanked fans for helping them win this award.

11

Overall the broadcast was cute and fun to watch. The boys were very happy to receive the award and even kept singing what reminded me of the graduation song every now and then. I hope that VLIVE continues doing broadcasts like these as they’re more intimate than award ceremonies that give the artist a couple seconds to thank their fans, while this one gave them a whole broadcast!

 

The only complaint I have is that you could hear the sofa squeaking when the boys moved, BUT I guess you could say that the mics they used were REALLY good LOL which is an upgrade, so I guess I can’t really complain? I’m actually glad they improved the clarity and quality of sound.
