We have received confirmation from Feel Ghood Music and UC Irvine Center for Korean Studies that MFBTY will be performing Monday, October 7th at UC Irvine. Tiger JK is also expected to partake in a panel discussing Korean hip-hop roots. The below is the preliminary announcement image, but we encourage people to join UCI Korea’s mailing list for immediate developing details.
Additional updates will be posted on this website and our social media feeds:
In a recent V LIVE broadcast, Tiger JK joked that they would be competing against each other. However, fans don’t seem to mind, and are excited to see how they’ll compete with each other.
The Korean title, “Kawi Bawi Bo,” is commonly known as the classic Rock, Paper, Scissors game, which is often played between children and adults to make decisions.
However, the song is quite a precursor to Yoonmirae’s “Gemini 2,” a hip-hop follow up to her first hip-hop album nearly 16 years ago.
Peep the teaser Feel Ghood Music released. What are you expectations of “Gemini 2?”
EDIT 4/19 4:19PM EST: Previous posts and articles have cited 4/20 was the date of the actual album release. This date will only be for Yoonmirae’s “KawiBawiBo” release. The full album still does not have a release date.
Leave it to the “Wondaland” artists to drop news of a new mini album unconventionally!
MFBTY members, Tiger JK and Bizzy, have become addicted to their Instagram lives as of late, dropping snippets of a Feel Ghood Music EP that’s coming out TOMORROW 6/27.
The mini album will include all Feel Ghood Music artists, including Drunken Tiger JK, Yoonmirae, Bizzy, Junoflo, and Ann One.
The album will also feature actress/singer, Arden Cho, of Teen Wolf fame. Arden became friends with MFBTY in 2013.
The supposed song title is “Clap Clap Clap,” with a catchy hook graced by FGM’s leading lady, Yoonmirae.
We’ve asked JK to repost his IG live previews, but he’s keeping the snippets ever elusive for those not watching his lives already!
We recommend fans hit the follow button on IG and put boss on alert if they want to hear the album before anyone else!

6:06AM KST UPDATE: After TigerJK went live, more details have been released. The album will drop at 6PM KST. FGM has NOT finished recording it (LOL). Another song title, 토끼 (“MADHATTER),” was revealed. It is a collab between Arden Cho and MFBTY (Drunken Tiger JK, Yoonmirae, and Bizzy). Another song features MRSHLL (Marshall Bang), an artist that Feel Ghood Music was seen hanging out with at SXSW.
If you’ve been living in the 90’s and don’t know what social media is, then you’ve completely missed the big news that Drunken Tiger, Yoonmirae, Bizzy (aka MFBTY) are coming to renowned awesome-encompassing South by Southwest.
Yes, you read that correctly: MFBTY is performing in America.
Over the weeks, we’ve been posited with a number of questions, including if the group will do extra shows nationwide, and if additional Feel Ghood Music artists are coming.
With the performance less than 3 weeks away, we’ve broken down the most common questions to help all fans attending.
The Basic Who/What/When:
The group will be performing FRIDAY, MARCH 17TH, at The Belmont, Austin, TX. They will be part of SXSW annual KPOP Night Out (hosted by KOCCA),a showcase of mainstream and independent Korean artists. Others performing include Red Velvet, No Brain, Big Phony, Hyorin, and Galaxy Express.
On The SXSW website, you will see that MFBTY technically is not listed as an artist, but Yoonmirae an Drunken Tiger are. While listed as 2 separate artists, they will have Bizzy, and two other Feel Ghood Music artists, Junoflo and Ann Onejoining them.
The set is to last 80 minutes (check SXSW GOfor details). That is A LOT OF SONGS.
Passes don’t just buy you entry into this performance, but EVERYTHING at SXSW.
Music wristbands will get you entry into all SXSW music shows.
The event is 18+, contrary to past years being 21+.
Will We (The International Website) Be There?
Yes, we will be at the show hours ahead, maybe with some fun swag 🙂
Will There Be MFBTY Merchandise?
That is something up to Feel Ghood Music. We have not heard anything about merchandise.
Can I Bring My DSLR Camera?
With the exception of press, attendees will generally not be allowed to bring professional cameras. All cameras will be inspected at the door. Phone cameras are allowed.
Will MFBTY Be Doing Any Other Shows at SXSW Or On Tour?
No, there is only one show. MFBTY hardly does US shows, so go to this or forever hold your peace.

Out-of-Towners, Book Your Plane/Hotels ASAP.
The number of available and affordable places to stay is drying up (AirBNB is down to less 1% availability for close places under $120/night). The area you will be looking at is Downtown/University of Texas Austin. The further out, the more availability, but less transport options. Make a decision this week if you’re still contemplating flying in.
What To Pack
Portable chargers, wall chargers, umbrella, lightweight clothing, extra shoes. It’s warm and rainy in Austin. Your phone will die, so bring everything you need to keep you connected.
Getting To The Venue
Downtown Austin is serviced by a number of rails, buses, and carriages. However, parking is a P-I-T-A. There is no Uber or Lyft either. Plan ahead for other car sharing options.
Don’t Just Go To One Show
SXSW is a massive music, film, interactive, EVERYTHING festival. Tons of free food, parties, drinks, etc. There are a number of social media accounts monitoring free events (most summarized here). Enjoy your time while in town!
Get Back To the Airport Early, Especially If You’re Leaving Sunday
SXSW brings in thousands of people, most of whom leave Sunday. The Austin airport is tiny, and lines will be backed up (yes, even with TSA Pre-Check). Allow for 3-4 hours prior to your flight.
If you have any other questions not answered here, email us or hit us up on any of our social media channels.
See you in Austin!

On the dawn of long awaited (and sadly, last) album of hip-hop pioneers, A Tribe Called Quest,all artists from Feel Ghood Music decided to remake ATCQ’s, “Check The Rhime”as a thank you for inspiring the entire FGM team.
Upon hearing the ATCQ album announcement, Tiger JK and Yoonmirae posted the above video of themselves jamming to the original song. What was not expected was the idea that fans would plant within them:
And with that, fan dreams became real, a reminder that our celeb biases do read their comments thread (Proceed with caution!).
The track includes every member of Feel Ghood Music and its counterpart, Ghood Life Crew. If you’re not up to date, that includes Tiger JK, Yoonmirae, Bizzy, Junoflo, Ann One, Myundo, and Superbee.
The exclusive (FREE) track will be available on hiphopkr.comlater today.
Earlier today, Feel Ghood Music put out a teaser announcement about a new artist signing with the label. After weeks of Feel Ghood Music fam becoming close with rappers SuperBee and MyunDo, fans immediately thought the obvious new artists would be the duo. However, FGM proved they could fool even the smartest of fans.
There was no press conference, and only a very quiet build up to the moment. Leave it to boss, Tiger JK, to announce it in a less formal, but just powerful way via Instagram.
JK’s message reads, “Feel Ghood Music welcomes Junoflo to the family! Support our musical journey together. Let it be known @Junoflo! It’s official!”
