J-pop Stars React To Teens React To J-pop (Perfume)


– (Tom) That was so awesome. – (speaking Japanese) – (Pedro) I think I like
that one the most. – Yay! – (Jeannie) I like
their music videos. ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – J-pop. – Laser Beam. – (Jeordy) Is this K-pop? – (Tom) K-pop. – (speaking Japanese) – (Ethan) What? – (speaking Japanese) – (Kaelyn) Oh, is he gonna
do the robot? – (speaking Japanese)
– (Jeannie) What? – (Tom) He’s a polar bear.
Yes. – (speaking Japanese) – (Tom) Watch out,
it’s a bomb. – (Ethan) Really?
He’s distracted by an apple? – (Sophia) What? – (speaking Japanese) – (Tom) No, we’re gonna
keep him as a pet. – (speaking Japanese) – (Tom) That was so awesome. – (speaking Japanese) – (Tori) Yes, sparkles, okay.
– Okay. – (Tom) This reminds me
of Kingdom Hearts. – (speaking Japanese) – (David) That’s a lot
of people. – (speaking Japanese) – (Jeannie) I love, really,
really, really good guy dancers. – (speaking Japanese) – (Sophia) Okay.
That was interesting. – (Tori) That was kind of
amazing. – AKB. – (Jeannie) Whoa,
this is so colorful. – (Tori) I love this so much. – (speaking Japanese) – (Pedro) The music videos
are better than ours. – (speaking Japanese) – (Jeordy) What sleepovers
are like. – Exactly. – (speaking Japanese) – (Tori) Is this supposed
to appeal to guys? – (speaking Japanese) – (Troy) Okay, I didn’t know
there was a mirror there. – (Sophia) Getting a little
suggestive. Calm down, everyone. – (speaking Japanese) – (David) Oh, so we were
peeping through the door. – (Troy) That’s a little weird. – (Tom) That’s kinda messed up
a little bit. – (Past FBE) What we just
showed you was three different bands
that are actually part of J-pop. – (Jeordy) Oh, that was J-pop?
I’m so sorry. – (speaking Japanese) – (Past FBE) So, before we go
into specifics, how would you describe
what you saw and heard overall? – (David) It’s very different
depending on what artist you watch. – (Tori) They put a lot
of effort into their music videos. – (Jeannie) Bright
and bubbly. – (speaking Japanese) – (Past FBE) So, the first
group we showed you was Perfume. What did you think of
their song and music video?
– (Pedro) I think I liked that one the most.
– Yay. – (Jeannie) I like
their music video. – (Tori) And it had
a polar bear in it. – (Troy) The mugged
a polar bear. – (Sophia) See a deeper
message, but I didn’t really ever come to a conclusion.
– (speaking Japanese) – (Past FBE) Exile, who have
sold more than 20 million records. – (Troy) Holy crap. – (Tom) That’s all of them? – (Jeordy) There’s 20 of them. – (Kaelyn) All the fan girls
don’t have to share now. – (speaking Japanese) – (Past FBE) Here is AKB 48.
– (Sophia) There’s so many of them, too. – (Tom) Let’s see how many
pretty girls we can fit into a band. – (Kaelyn) That’s too many
mood swings right there. – (Past FBE) They currently have
over 130 members. – (Jeordy) Why do they
need that many? – (Jeannie) Oh my God,
that’s a lot of girls. Mayday. – (Past FBE) Part of what
audiences love is to watch regular people grow from
inexperienced to professionals. – (speaking Japanese) – (Jeannie) It’s kind of hard
for independent music artists to try to
even make a big name for themselves.
Basically, it’s a lot harder for just people who wanna
do their own music instead of following
a company. – Exactly. – (Past FBE) To abide by
or even get fired or demoted.
For example, in some of the groups, you’re not
allowed to date. – (Tom) What? – (Past FBE) And one of
the AKB 48 members not that long ago ended
up in a scandal where she was seen coming out
of a guy’s place from another group
and she got demoted and ended up cutting off
her hair. – (speaking Japanese) – (Troy) That’s pretty harsh. – (speaking Japanese) – (David) Extreme, much. – (Jeordy) They should get
three strikes or something. – (Tori) It’s probably good
for younger people in Japan so they could look up to them
because they’re so pure and amazing and everything. – (speaking Japanese) – (Jeannie) Coming from
Asian culture, if I do something bad,
I have to do something to show that I show remorse,
but she signed that contract herself so she put herself
in that position. – (speaking Japanese) – (Past FBE) Last question.
Now that you have listened to some J-pop, are you
gonna start listening to any of these groups?
– (Troy) No. – (Ethan) No. – (David) I don’t think so. – (speaking Japanese) – (Shant) Not really. – (Jeordy) I don’t really like
pop music. – (speaking Japanese) – (Jeannie) I’m playing
some hip-hop, I can change it up
and play some J-pop. – Yes. – (speaking Japanese) – (FBE) So Perfume,
first of all, it is so cool for us to have you
here with us today. – Thank you.
– Thank you so much. – (FBE) So this video
we made years ago and we never imagined that
one day we’d actually get to show it to you. – (speaking Japanese) – (FBE) How have you viewed
your place within J-pop and its history over time? – (speaking Japanese) – (FBE) What was it like today
to see these teenagers from a few years ago
reacting to your music and also to J-pop
as a whole? – (speaking Japanese) – So pretty. – (speaking Japanese) – (FBE) So you guys have
been together since 2000. It’s rare to see groups
that stay together for such a long time.
Can you talk about your journey and how you’ve managed
to stay together for all this time? – (speaking Japanese) – (FBE) Music from Japan
and Korea in recent years has crossed over in a big way
into America and to the West. Compared to when you started
20 years ago to now, how much of a difference
is the reach of your music in other countries? – (speaking Japanese) – (FBE) You are the first J-pop
all female group to ever preform at Coachella.
What was that experience like? – (speaking Japanese) – Amazing. – (FBE) So finally, you recently
went on a North American tour that had many sold out shows.
You also have a new album out that debuted at number one
in over 20 countries. – Yay.
– Ooh. – (FBE) After almost 20 years
together, could you guys have ever imagined you
would still be having this amount of success? – (speaking Japanese) – (FBE) But are you happy
that you’re still here? – Yes.
I’m so happy! – Thanks to FBE for making video.
– Our new videos are a lot cooler.
– So make sure to check them out.
– Bye!

  4. PRFM (and capsule) has been my ABSOLUTE favorite group since 13 years ago :') me and two other friends would pretend we were pop stars, and dance and sing to their songs in my basement as middle schoolers. I'm 23 now and literally grew up with them and their music, their producer Nakata is my favorite musician of all time and has produced so many albums that changed my life. I cannot believe how much time has gone by since I first found them with Polyrhythm. A-chan, Noochi, Kashi, you three are my original idols <3 love you :')

  40. Exile Tribe is the Best! All their songs are good. Plus there are so many Japanese bands/groups that are amazing.

  41. I love how confidently the teens called it k-pop when they hadn't even SEEN anybody in the video. It was about five seconds and the got pretty close geographically speaking. You guys have just conditioned everyone hardcore to see a pop video and immediately think that it's Korean.

  42. All i hear is ANIME ANIME ANIME ANIME.

  43. 90년대  일본음악은 참 좋았는데… 요즘 일본음악은 장르별 모든 음악이 최악… 애니 음악까지도…  아쉽다…

  59. Lol these translations are bad

  60. Their sweet voices cleanses my soul

  61. If it isn't Jpop and what do they call themselves

  62. Oh my gosh they are just so precious. I feel like Japanese music celebs are just so much more down to Earth. I haven't listened to their music yet, but I will now because they just seem to have such beautiful souls. How can they not be amazing?

  63. Nocchi's face was lowkey super expressive when she didn't agree with something the reactors said xD

  64. なんだこれはたまげたなぁ……

  65. I don't usually say this things but…* Goddamit They are so fking cute when they talk shut the hell up*

  67. These Japanese girls are exceptionally beautiful

  68. what is this channel anymore

  69. Such polite human beings

  70. People should react to Perfume 不自然なガール .
    It is awesome!

  71. FBE, I really think that when you show people music, you should definitely show more songs/bands/groups than just 3. At the least, 4, but preferably 5. Hell, maybe even the next multiple of 2; 6. Reasonably, no more than that though.

    Sure, it'd make video longer even with cutting things out, but I think it'd be totally worth it. Especially for the fans watching hoping to see your reactors react to a variety of a category or group's music.

  72. i love AAA, Perfume and Ayumi Hamasaki

  73. If you think Perfume's music videos are good, you should see them live – Their concerts are beyond awesome!

  74. Love Perfume. Listen to them all the time.

  75. They are amazing!!!
