It seems things get wild in the Feel Ghood Music studio. On March 31st, MFBTY made a guest appearance on YooHeeYeol Sketchbook, a show hosted by mentor and feature, Yoo HeeYeol. Yoo played a major influence on the making of the Wondaland album, as it was him who chose the singles and perfected the instrumentals on the album. He also played the piano rift so prominent in their single, “Hello Happy.”
The four clearly had a fun time preparing the album. JK joked, “It was Yoo Hee Yeol who told us we should have 3 title songs. If we were successful, then it’d be thanks to Yoo Hee Yeol. If we failed, it’d be his fault.” The studio responded with laughter. JK continued, “We were in Billboard overseas, but no one knows about us here in Korea.” More laughter ensued as Yoo became embarrassed.
However, it was the following behind the scenes story that really shocked the audience. “When Yoo Hee Yeol came into the studio, he was so charismatic and hyped,” JK starts. “He asked, ‘Is the piano ready? Let’s do this!'”
Yoo then admitted, “Actually, JK initially wanted me to say dirty messages into songs like ‘Hey, what are you wearing?'”
Amongst other highlights from the show, Yoo introduced Tasha as Korea’s top 3 female rappers (YoonMiRae, T, and Jordan’s mom). It’s something Tasha finds flattering, but burdensome as an expectation. JK gets jealous when he hears Tasha praised so highly, and she uses it against him. Apparently, when he’s angry, he tends to rap better.
The full Yoo Hee Yeol Sketchbook episode will air Apri 3rd, 12:15AM.
