[IZE INTERVIEW] MFBTY’s Album Process, Raising Jordan, And The Awe Of Bizzy’s International Fans

IZE

MFBTY: “With all that’s happening around the world at the moment, I just want to provide happiness and enjoyment.”

Editors: In Uijeongbu lives a couple and their close friend who form MFBTY, whom just recently released an album, Wondaland. Their intro begins like this: “We wish not only for every person in this world, but all bees, butterflies, insects to be happy. For all to blossom like flowers, be beautiful, healthy, be in harmony with each other and live well.”

They are people who are about living with LOVE & PEACE. They are Tiger JK, YoonMiRae, and Bizzy—lonely, hurting, in pain, holding on to what is left of their father, releasing music even though times are tough. As family and colleagues, they have made a synergetic bond and are recording their growth through music.

I understand you faced some hard times prior to setting up your company (Feel Ghood Music), has everything settled down?

TigerJK: We wanted to get off on the right foot. Our son is 8 years old now, but I also haven’t aged mentally further than 8 years old. No, truthfully my son’s mental age is a lot older than mine. (Laughter) Since I am laughing and playing with my son a lot, it has made me a brighter person and people can really see that when they meet me.

So, about your song “Hello Happy….”
Tiger JK: Happy was our wish (to become happy). I’ve mentioned it before that I am a story teller and that we write lies based on truths, but when we recorded our solos, they sounded sad and dark as our heart and soul was put in to them. However, when we recorded together, the end result was silly, fun, and wacky. At first, we only planned for a single, and then we kept making more songs, and then an intro, and slowly we came up with 16 songs for a full album.

11129690_1036068399739957_6580856187494911422_o

Was that because there were a lot of stories to be told?
Tiger JK: As well as having stories to be told, we spent our time only in Uijeongbu which made us feel isolated. But when artist like Jeon InKwon and Yoo Hee Yeol came to Uijeongbu, whom we knew as more of friendly faces rather than musicians, a lot of interesting things happened. Whenever someone came over and visited us, we were able to create music there and then, and it was a phenomenal experience. I have OCD and have a tendency to structure the album from start to finish, but this time around, it was really fun working on this album.

It seems you have broken some conventions.
Tiger JK: As well as Jordan and other artist that we worked with, we learnt important lessons from everybody. Jeon InKwon’s “Love and Peace” is a different version compared to the one listed on our album. The previous version had a lot of components and was more upbeat. Jeon InKwon said, “The chorus, adlib, rap, take it all out and leave the song bare and lonely, pure like a child. I like it the way it is. You have to trust me.” So I followed, and now the CD is rare item. (Laughter)

And while YooHeeYeol was reviewing the codes and laying out the instrumentals, he advised that “Just because it’s flashy, it doesn’t mean it’s good, let’s try it this way.” When we heard the new version, we said “wow!” Truth is, we did not study music professionally. But when he praised the lines Mi Rae made just by tapping on the piano keys using two fingers, it really made us happy. RapMonster’s energy was genuine and plentiful. He would say, “These days, this is trendy. From here, let’s take this out and the song will sound good.”

Son Seung Yun would quietly ask, “So can I do it like this?” While she was recording, it was like an explosion came out of her.

tigerjkize
There are tracks that are soulful and have that feel good vibe to them. but there are other tracks, especially “Bang Diggy Bang Bang” and “Bucku Bucku” that are more upbeat and catchy. How were they created?

Tiger JK: In our opinion,Wondaland is a pop album. To us, Hip Hop is a way of life. It’s not all about shouting “yo yo yo!” but it’s about the philosophy and the culture that’s embedded within us, and this album is not hip-hop. To be honest, I don’t know what hip-hop is these days. That’s not taking shots at what’s hot right now, because we used to be like that when we were younger. We decided to make positive music that makes everyone feel good amongst all these diss, beef and battles that happen constantly. Coming back to the question, “Bucku Bucku” and “Bang Diggy Bang Bang” is pop, but the way it was made was more like a jazz improvisation: impromptu. With “Bucku Bucku,” when people heard it for the first time, they thought we were crazy because it literally just said “bucku bucku” at the start. “Bang Diggy Bang Bang” had 3-4 more choruses and hooks, but we took them out and left the fun bits in it, all thanks to MiRae.

TashaIze
How’s everyone’s schedule (both personal and professional) working as a trio?

YoonMiRae: I wasn’t able to stay in the studio as long as the others. When we are making music, we have too much fun and lose track of time. Before we know it, it’s 5am. So then I catch up on any sleep that I can, then wake Jordan up, and get him ready for school. And when he comes home, I have to check his homework too so it can get very overwhelming at times. I’m also not as young as I once was (laughter). So I listened to the music, and wrote what I felt like at the time, recorded my parts, and went home.

With Jordan going to school, and working with different people, you must’ve felt your circle widening up. How did that feel?

YoonMiRae: To be honest, it was difficult at times. Apart from friends that I know from school, I don’t have many friends from the entertainment industry. I still don’t know what to do when I meet new people. So when Jeon In Kwon and Yoo Hee Yeol Sunbaenim visited us, I arrived at the studio later on purpose. I felt a bit awkward and didn’t know what to say to them and how to request and ask for things. So I thought about all of that thoroughly at home, then arrived at the studio. Turns out, I thought about it way too much. By conversing with them, laughing and discussing music and being comfortable enough to talk about everyday things, I realized I just thought too much about all of this.

Tiger JK: MiRae constantly thinks about Jordan. She records until the sun comes up, goes home, and prepares breakfast so that Jordan can wake up and go to school on time. Her motherhood is so strong, it’s difficult to explain. I guess all mothers can relate to her. MiRae is our son’s mom as well as a girl with an innocent heart. With the past that we had, she faced some criticism when she graced some of the fashion magazines with the photo shoots she did. To others, it seems like MiRae is saying that she is the best MC. So in my eyes, it felt like she is battling an image that is not her at all.

You haven’t appeared on MNET Unpretty Rapstar, but your name keeps getting mentioned.

YoonMiRae: Yes, but I don’t think the contestants even expected my name to pop up as much as it did.

JK: Mirae supports all female rappers and singers.

Because she is the most prominent female MC in Korea, I guess they expected her to have some kind of a role for them.

Yoon Mi Rae: When I rap, I do say things like “I’m the best,” but I really don’t think that is the case. If I really thought I was the best, I would be doing this as a hobby and not producing music as a job. I still have so much to learn and still in the process of learning, so I did not feel like I was in such a position to teach others how to rap verse.

11035287_1036054376408026_7280783227921557190_n

This album feels like the three of you are communicating with your rapping and singing. Did your definition of rap change?

Bizzy: There is a separate project that I’m doing with JK. It’s got 40 bars each, but in this album, we made the tracks the main characters, not us. We learned to control our output and let our raps be marinade to our tracks.

Tiger JK: As well as controlling the amount of rap, we toned it down when we had a guest rapper. Previously, we thought to ourselves ‘I’m going to make my 16 bars outshine everyone else!’ (laughter), but now we learned to give, share, and control ourselves. When I mispronounce something or skipped a beat, I would usually record the track again. However, this time around we thought about the emotional content and how it fits around the track. MiRae told me to let it flow naturally and I did.

Did you ever feel like you were steering away from the current trend or what’s hot on the music scene?

Tiger JK: To be honest, we know that it will sell well if we do a track with a generic “money making” structure, with some ballad lines and a bit of rap. But due to my stubbornness, we did the mix down on our whole album four times, blowing our budget. Luckily, May is concert season so we can get some gigs (laughter). Back to the point, I believe there is a necessity for variety and we plan to continue what we are doing. When we came on the scene as Drunken Tiger, we’ve heard negative feedback from everyone for a year straight saying that we won’t be able to make it. Those hard times though made us stronger, and we’ve obtained peace of mind.

What do you want to release to the world now?

Tiger JK: I would love to be a barista/bookshop ahjussi. Previously, I only spoke about my hard times. Even though they are all true, I don’t want people to think of me as a disgruntled man, I want them to go, ‘Oh wow, that’s JK!’ Before my father passed away, there were some medical malpractices that I had witnessed, which made me disappointed. However, with all the bad things that are happening around the world, I wanted to provide people happiness.

YoonMiRae: At first, I made music because I loved it and most of all, I did it for me. However, later it was unclear whether I was doing it for the record label or whether I was doing it for the money. I am just thankful for all the fans that trust me and have followed me over the years. These days, I really like watching fan reactions videos to our music after I take Jordan to school. I want to continue making music to make my fans happy.

Bizzy: When we were shooting the music video for our previous album, “The Cure,” one of the staff members came to me and said, ‘I went through some really hard times and this song helped me a lot. Thank you.’ At that time, I didn’t sleep for days, but hearing that made me even more determined. JK hyung always provides me with good lessons, but when he speaks to me about music, I hold on to every word. I want to listen to JK and MiRae’s voice longterm, and I want to continue making good music because when times got tough and I wanted to give up. it was music that helped me get back up.

Tiger JK: I just want everybody to know Bizzy, so that when this handsome kind Bizzy gets more popular, I can just sit back and laugh

bizzyize

So nowadays I hear you have a lot of international fans, Bizzy.

Bizzy: I’m also shocked. I asked playfully ‘let’s get married,” and I get serious offers still!

Tiger JK: Kpop has it’s underground fandom, not like a normal fandom like EXO. Twitter is where MFBTY first came about. On the other hand, marriage is something different and serious. When Bizzy leaves Uijeongbu, there is nothing that I can do. (laughter)

[video] MFBTY performance on Yoo Hee Yeol Sketchbook; YoonMiRae’s Solo Is Ready

On April 3rd, MFBTY’s appearance on YooHeeYeol’s Sketchbook aired and the three revealed what they’re like in the studio.

As previously mentioned, YoonMiRae purposely angers JK in the studio because he works better when he’s mad. Yoo HeeYeol then responded, “If you two would battle rap, it would be amazing.” Suddenly, JK started battling Tasha, to which Tasha responded back with only a few lines. JK came back talking about eating pasta, to which Tasha responded, “Pasta? What?”

Yoo also asked Tasha when her solo album would be released, and she happily told the audience she was done recording it.

The four remarked how quickly Jordan has grown and how now he is in school. Jordan has grown into a bit of a trouble maker, but still fears the wrath of mom.

“Jordan wanders off into the neighborhood sometimes,” Bizzy remarked. “But then Tasha’s voice gets so big when she calls him. He’s suddenly easily to find.”

KBS uploaded these parts from their appearance:

[news] MFBTY on Yoo HeeYeol Sketchbook: “JK Asked Me To Talk Dirty Into The Mic”

YHYSketchbook

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.

[FULL RECAP] MFBTY Special on MNET’s 4ThingsShow w/ Guest, BTS’ RapMonster

4thingsshowyellow

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD. 

March 24th marked the first time since the members of MFBTY (Bizzy, Tiger JK, YoonMiRae) participated in a reality show since 2010. The producers at MNET’s “4ThingsShow (or 4 Kinds Show)” were with MFBTY as they prepared for their first full length album, Wondaland. BTS’ RapMon who also featured on Wondaland unexpectedly dropped in during the shooting and became the show’s 4th part to complete the show title’s theme. This hour long special takes us from JK’s humble beginnings, MFBTY’s hometown of Uijeongbu, RapMon’s thoughts of collaborating with his “hip-hop king,” to the tough slump they endured when JK’s father died. However, the ending shows the trio becoming stronger as a result of that tough time, and appropriately ending with a mini-video for their second single, “Hello Happy.

Introductions

jkintro

tashaintro

Tiger is the first to be introduced, but rather than elaborate on himself, he introduces his wife, who is a first time guest on the show. They briefly discuss their relationship and share how the magic is still alive within it. Tiger comments that she still feels like his girlfriend, and Tasha not knowing what JK said, comments similarly that she still doesn’t know the difference between being in a relationship versus being married.

bizzyintro

When it comes to Bizzy, JK said without him, JK wouldn’t be able to do what he does. However, there are still many who don’t know who he is. When asked how he got his start, he revealed he’s been rapping since fellow rapper, Yang Dong Geun’s (YDG) 1.5 album. That was nearly 12 years ago! He was still learning from YDG, who ironically was mentored by Drunken Tiger, and JK decided to help. Ever since 2004, Bizzy’s performed alongside JK and Tasha, but ironically people still have trouble recognizing him.

rapmonintro

Rap Mon is then introduced, but this is his 3rd time on the show. He’s most famously known as BTS’ leader, but he was an underground rapper prior and grew up idolizing JK. As seen on his last appearance, people questioned him on why he joined a boyband. He vowed to change the views of these critics, and flash forward, he has a solo hip-hop mixtape and this collaboration with MFBTY.

JK hiding from cameras.

We’re then taken to what looks like a seclusion room that JK must stay in for a day and be monitored. JK catches on that he’s being filmed and quickly devises a plan to maximize his privacy. He starts brushing his teeth, and slyly puts a mirror in front of the sink camera to block its view. The producers catch on to him and tell him he has to talk about MFBTY while in the room, and ask him why he is covering up the cameras. His excuse, “Oh, I needed to move it because the water stopped running in the sink.”

Is JK the Godfather of Korean Hip-hop? 

jktitle
“The title makes me feel good, but I don’t know if it’s me.”

Seeing he can’t escape, he proceeds to look himself up on the internet and comment on what people say about him. A common theme he sees is people calling him the father of Korean hip-hop, and we see him get uncomfortable. RapMon is asked about this and shows some frustration, “These days, younger people don’t know who he is.”

A young Tiger.

JK elaborates on how he started, stating he got into hip-hop culture through his friends, and it wasn’t something he saw as a career for himself. He liked the culture even when others didn’t understand it. However, he was picked up by Oasis Records after he performed at show, and later came out with his first actual album, “Call Me Tiger.” He formed Drunken Tiger the group 5 years later with then partner, DJ Shine, and the album was a breaking point for hip-hop culture. However, Korean culture still couldn’t grasp the concept of it. Nevertheless, Drunken Tiger is credited for bringing the culture into the mainstream, but it’s not something that JK likes to talk about. Korea was already doing some hip-hop, but because DT brought many cultural elements into the mainstream, he’s been labeled Korea hip-hop’s godfather. This puts an unexpected pressure on him to live up to a certain image.

Uijeongbu: Home of The Tiger

Getting his braids done.

We’re next taken into a mini tour of Uijeongbu, a small city outside of Seoul that MFBTY calls home. Tasha and her family have lived here for many years, and she admits that Tiger moved there for her. She describes Uijeongbu that is a city that has the peace of the suburbs. At night, the nightlife is booming, but in the daytime you can hear farm animals and see beautiful mountains. Around the neighborhood, there’s multicultural restaurants and Tiger even makes a visit to a braiding shop that his wife recommended. JK video calls her and his son from the shop. Tasha catches the stylist (who happens to be her own) and reveals that JK is sensitive and might cry if his braids are too tight. 

A Feel Ghood Time Capsule

The new Feel Ghood Music office is referred to as a time capsule. The common area is filled to the ceiling with vinyls that the group uses for inspiration, and there are no windows to minimize distractions. When they are in the studio, they get caught up in their music and it’s easy to lose track of what time of day it is. Tasha refers to it as a black hole that is easy to get stuck in.

Tiger The Great Husband

JK’s aegyo flirting.

As the trio prepare for the Hello Happy music video shoot, Tiger is seen dancing to Childish Gambino’s “Sober,” and the result is almost similar to the music video. Tasha is initially unphased by JK’s woo’ing dance, but after stringing him along, she jumps into dance with him. Tasha comments that JK has sacrificed so much for her. No matter how sick he is or how tired, he would do anything to make her happy. Bizzy reveals that JK is the one who has “aegyo (cutesy act)” in the relationship, not Tasha. However, their relationship is like a match made in heaven.

Tiger JK is NOT Funny

Bizzy and Tiger are back in the studio and are ready to review the album track list. They’re looking at feedback and votes for what should be the lead singles. JK reveals that BangDiggyBangBang was inspired by his son’s love for a trampoline (“BangBang” is slang for trampoline, “BangDiggy” means Jump on). In the midst of this, he tries to drop some punch lines and is met with a non-reactive Tasha and an awkward laughing Bizzy. Tiger reveals that no one ever seems to get his jokes. Tasha reiterates and says, “His jokes take so long to get. He thinks they’re funny, but really they’re just corny.” RapMon’s reaction to JK’s jokes, “That was supposed to be a joke?”

Rap Mon Surprises MFBTY

We’re taken back to when the group filmed their “Bang Diggy Bang Bang,” video. Tasha is missing from the room, and JK and Bizzy stand in awkward silence. JK says that without a script and without Tasha, both he and Bizzy are useless. Rap Monster arrives a few minutes later without knowing MFBTY is in the middle of filming for 4ThingsShow. He is caught off guard at first, but tells the camera that Tiger JK is his idol. JK replies, “You’re my idol (play on words).” JK comments that Rapmon changed his view of idol rappers. Rapmon’s good-natured personality and natural skills rapping left a positive impression.

RapMon recalls hearing Tiger JK get jealous.

However, it wasn’t always positive between RapMon and JK. JK recalls that in the studio, RapMon took off his shirt and left only his undershirt on. JK was worried RapMon was trying to get a glance from Tasha, and it didn’t help that Tasha was being friendly to him. This didn’t sit well with JK and he said, “Your face changes when someone younger comes.” A small argument between Tasha and JK followed. This occurred in front of RapMon, who commented that he could see even through an argument, they truly loved each other.

Jordan Standing Tall

Jordan closes in on dad’s camera.

We get a glimpse into their apartment and Jordan is seen gleefully playing. Tasha is in amazement that Jordan has grown so quickly, and both her and Bizzy say he’s trying to be more like his father. Tasha reminisces JK’s reaction when Jordan was born, “Every worry JK had just disappeared.”

Remembering G-PA

g-pasroom
Suh Byung Hoo’s (JK’s father) room remains in tact a year after his passing.

The show turns somber as the audience is led to JK’s father’s room, which is still in tact a year after his dad’s passing. It’s a touchy subject for all three members to discuss, who all struggle to hold back tears. Tasha reveals that JK’s father (known to fans as “Smilingrandaddy” or G-PA, short for grandpa) was everything to him: father, teacher, best friend, and mother. JK’s face fills with admiration as he remembers his dad, “He was a teacher, well cultured, someone that was loved by many.” When his father was diagnosed with cancer in July 2013, JK did all he could to save him, but, “No matter what I did, I couldn’t save him. It made me crazy.”

The funeral was more burdensome.The media showed up at the funeral, and JK was in no mood to have it that day. He screamed at some, saying, “This is not a show!”

jkremembersegpa

To this day, JK tries to put on a strong face in front of his family, but Tasha can hear him crying in the bathroom sometimes. JK misses his dad. However, rather than think of those months as a painful time, he takes what good he can: “During that time, the world felt so cold, but when I look back, I think of those last 7 months we had with him as a beautiful time for our family. We held his hand while he slept, shared meals with him when he was hungry.” His family hardly left his father’s side.

JK honors his father’s memory as much as possible. The necklace he wears now is one his father gave to him. JK is postponing cutting his hair because his dad would touch JK’s hair when they would talk to each other. Everyday he asks Tasha if he should cut it, then tells Tasha he’ll cut it tomorrow. Tomorrow still hasn’t come.

JK says he feels his father’s presence and hears his father speaking to him. In return JK writes to him hoping to “hear” a response.

Coming Back To Music

angelnecklace

It took 10 months for MFBTY to fully come back to music. The release of “Angel” (under YoonMiRae’s name) in December marked their first single back, and it soared to #1 quicker than expected. The song was about everyone being an angel for someone, and there are angels there for you during your hard times. Clearly, it had elements inspired by their experience that past year. Making the song wasn’t about making a hip-hop track, it was just about making a song that felt good (thus Feel Ghood Music).

Returning as MFBTY fully 4 months later was hardly any different. The “Wondaland” album was meant to be free of genre, as it had elements from all areas. Even RapMon commented that when he heard the album, he didn’t need to know its “meaning.” It was just a new sound.

bizzygoodmusic
“It’s just music that feels good.” – Bizzy

While critically acclaimed (check their recent review in Billboard Magazine), the name caused them some problems.

“It stands for ‘Mother Freakin’ BizzyTigerYoonMiRae,’ or ‘Miss Fat Booty,’ or ‘My Fans Are Better Than Yours,” JK says.

However, it’s not the meaning that fans take issue. “It’s not that hard to say!” Bizzy says in response to a question about the pronunciation.

What Is Wondaland?

tigermfbtyexplain

In the beginning of the Wondaland album, we hear Tiger JK’s mother explaining what MFBTY is. JK clarifies that the title refers to a special place that is strange, but a kind of free dream land. The musical styles on the album match the concept, as they don’t want to label it as one type of genre. There were expectations this was a hip-hop album, but Tasha tells us not to worry about that, “Just listen to it and feel it.”

As the show draws to an end, Bizzy, Tasha, and RapMon are asked their thoughts on Tiger. RapMon says, “He’s not ‘Ho-Rang-Ee’ JK. He is his own name, no translation. Just TIGER JK.”

Bizzy tells stories of his friends listening to JK’s music. “My friends are older now. They’re married, some with kids. They have different priorities. However, when they listen to JK’s lyrics, they are inspired to listen to music again.”

JK is then asked to reflect on himself. He refers to himself as “Old Tiger” now. Unknowing to him, Tasha says JK still seems the same age to her.

jkisthesametasha
On JK’s age: “He’s still seems the same.”

The show ends with 4 messages JK is to keep in a time capsule to be opened in the future. One message is for his father, one saying “Tiger JK is here,” one that we can’t make out unfortunately, but the last one appropriately written: Love, Peace, & Harmony.

With these looks by Yoon Mi Rae, along with the news that BTS’ Rap Monster is participating, expectations are getting even higher for MFBTY’s first official album launch.

This will be their first full album since they formed the group 18 months ago. On this album, Korean legendary rocker, Jeon In Kwon, will also feature as well as other (yet to be announced) well known artists within the Korean music industry.

MFBTY’s debut single, “Sweet Dream,” started their engine, along with the release of their mini album The Cure. Their songs have swept the various charts, taking the number 1 spot on numerous occasions. Yoon Mi Rae’s recently released the single, “Angel,” which took the crown on many music charts, proving their worth on the music scene.
