BBC News 24. It was on at 1 at night, my dad was watching it and suddenly Tablo was there with his Bloshitup cap.

lmao mte. i was like how did that get past censors...

I love his music as an individual artist more than anything he's ever released with other ppl including Epik High, because he is one of the very few artist that knows how to speak to me so perfectly.
I want a new solo album :].

love him. loved him talking about his daughter. YG family continues to be awkward and flawless in interviews.

I love Tablo and agree that he needs another solo album stat. He's a good spokesperson because not once did he throw out "swag" while talking about kpop. Also he's a nerd which is always a plus in my book
stephantasm 25th-Jan-2013 07:26 pm (UTC)
was on the edge of my seat and thought he was gunna do that terrible affectation that some swaggy~~~ idols do when speaking english. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)
markthatcoin 25th-Jan-2013 07:32 pm (UTC)
i don't think he had that type of "accent" when he lived in the States anyway... but i can't attest to anyone picking it up because of working in kpop

using science-y words tablo :Db

what. they didnt catch the end when he yells out "BLO IT UP!" and the lady anchor thinking he looked too young to even have a kid. haha.

dunno why they chose tablo for a kpop interview though.

From the way it sounded on Twitter he didn't really seem to know why either.

Not as awkward as I thought it would be. Love this man! :)

as disjointed an awkward it was i still feel rly proud of him. his tweets as this was happening were hilarious.

also i am still not sure what i think of them choosing tablo to represent "kpop". on one hand, it's part of this weird trend of lumping a bunch of korean celebrities into the phenomenon of kpop, on the other hand, tablo is an intelligent, insightful dude who has perspective from outside the industry as well as being an artist who collaborates with idols

soramai 25th-Jan-2013 08:03 pm (UTC)
that was interesting.
hugtimes 25th-Jan-2013 08:04 pm (UTC)
awh, that was so cute when he was talking about his daughter.
i love the way he talks and the things that he says, he's just flawfree.

IN which Tablo speaks better English than most of my town and a good chunk of my family.

Get it!

lord he is so sexy, idk if it's the intelligence or the talent or all of the above
aifurikuri 25th-Jan-2013 08:47 pm (UTC)
all the above
aifurikuri 25th-Jan-2013 08:47 pm (UTC)
You should post his tweets!
He needs to do another talk asia interview.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-21191331 another part of the interview that didnt seem to be in the clip posted.

:( i wish there was a full clip.

Tablo is ♥

Still get blown away by his music - especially his english verses. he is a talented wordsmith; his command and appreciation for both languages are close to incredible.
annhh 25th-Jan-2013 09:37 pm (UTC)
Tablo enjoying his opportunity to show intellect ^^ and wittiness obvsly
realme21 25th-Jan-2013 09:42 pm (UTC)
Why would he have that gangsta accent like other try hard idols have? He's a Stanford graduate no?
