I too was amazed at how much these boys LOVED Asian pop - and how much they knew about it!

#Jepic day at PopAsia HQ when I found out twin Irish pop stars Jedward were hanging out. At first it was just a mission to find out more about Korean boyband Big Bang (I mean G-Dragon and Taeyang follow them on Twitter), but I didn’t expect them to be so much FUN!

So, with any sort of previous interview plan abandoned, here are my Top 3 #Jepic Moments:

  1. Jedward, THE Irish pop stars, talking about Asian Pop stars like massive fans:

Off-Air, the boys told us how great it was to be able to talk to someone about Asian Pop, ‘cause they don’t have a lot of friends who know about it. John was also starting to tell me how Taeyang and I would really get along, if not for DaBoss (massive Taeyang fan) interrupting to say SHE and Taeyang would really get along. ;p (Now I’ll never know WHHYYY)

  1. Finding out Jedward have an English version of Tohoshinki’s ‘Superstar’, and singing along to it ON AIR:

LOVE the underrated Superstar, LOVE it even more now that there are English lyrics to sing with

  1. John’s impromptu proposal:

Who hasn’t dreamed of being proposed to by super cute blonde twins, right?

I’ve also been sent my Planet Jedward Welcome Pack, so I guess it’s official—see you in November, boys!
