如果这是你第一次收听 IKUN Meets KUN节目，那么告诉你这是由中国粉丝团Kunsland倾情制作的哦！
Mumu: There are so much fun! Our mission is to connect all overseas IKUNs and friends to promote KUN and KUN’s music. We frequently upload translated videos and updates about KUN on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and a Chinese microblog named Weibo. So Berry, shall we start with big news updates?
节目里有很多有趣的故事! 我们的目标是将所有海外IKUN联系在一起，宣传 KUN 和 KUN 的音乐。我们经常在 YouTube、Twitter、Instagram 和微博上更新有关 KUN 的内容和译制视频。 所以Berry，我们先来说说最近的大新闻吧。
Berry: Ok, The first big news to be mentioned today! KUN has set up his official YouTube channel! The music video for his new song Hard To Get is out now there, definitely check it out, do not forget to give him a thumbs up and subscribe his channel!
今天要提到的最新消息！KUN已经建立了个人的官方YouTube频道！他的新歌《Hard To Get》也已经更新。别忘了尽快订阅他的频道并点赞。
Mumu: On May 14th, KUN was named the goodwill ambassador of the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation. He pledged to promote the social awareness for the disaster prevention programs with his IKUNs.
Berry: For May 24th and 25th, KUN actually made another two stops in Toronto and Vancouver, which were marked as his final stop for his ONE Tour. So, for this time, he actually sang I Wanna Get Love, which is the first ever song he wrote by himself, he also imitated the "miumiumiu"sound for his "little cats", which is also the nickname for IKUNs, that is super super super cute, I was pretty impressive by that.
在5月24日及25日，KUN在多伦多和温哥华完成了两场公演，结束了ONE Tour的最后一站。这一次，他演唱了他的第一首自作曲《I Wanna Get Love》，他还为了他的小猫咪（粉丝的绰号）模仿了“喵喵喵”的声音。真的是非常非常可爱，非常让人印象深刻。
Mumu: Oh yeah, I went to the Toronto show, it was phenomenal!
Well, the biggest news that is still hot off the press is... On May 31st, KUN joined Prada's campaigns line-up and collaborated with multimedia artist Cao Fei on a futuristic short film called "Code Human". Check it out on KUN's official YouTube channel! It's super cool!
Berry: In this episode, we invite two different groups of special guests. First of all, we found a lovely lady who just became an IKUN from KUN’s US Tour last month. Coming up next, we also invite a group of secret guests to our program. So, if you want to find out who are they, just stay tuned!
Berry：Now let’s welcome our first guest of today，Sharon！
Sharon：Hello, everyone, this is Sharon, thanks for inviting me to this special episode.
Berry: Our pleasure! Welcome to "IKUN meets KUN", and welcome to the big family of IKUNs, just give you a big applause first!
这是我们的荣幸！ 欢迎参加我们 “IKUN meets KUN” 节目，也欢迎你加入IKUN大家庭，掌声鼓励下，yeah！
Mumu: Welcome, Sharon! 欢迎你，Sharon！
Berry: So tell us about how did you get to know about KUN?
Sharon: It's a long story really, I knew his name in Idol Producer last year, but I did not follow this show, and last month I watched another similar show in Youku, it was annoying that lots of real-time comments flied in the total screen mentioned XingDongYaZhou, yes, I saw KUN's name again, so I was curious about this show and just watched it. And KUN was very young but grew fast in the second episode, so I felt more interested in him and searched his name on weibo, by chance, I knew he was doing his live house tour in LA, I watched some video recorded by his fan, and wow thanks for the fan's videos. It was so incredible that the radiance of his looks, his move, his smiles easily attracted me. And after I watched all the live performance, l felt like I did a bungee jumping that I cannot escape to be a big fan of him.
Mumu: Ha-ha I hear you. I was there in this LA show, and you can totally feel it when he got on stage, that your emotion is completely controlled by him and his music.
Sharon: Yes. 我完全同意。
Berry: Just curious, before you get to know KUN, do you hold any stereotypes against him?
Sharon: Yeah, actually I did not see any K-POP show before, even I didn't know who is GD-Dragon, to be honest, but last year when I saw KUN's first stage in Idol Producer, I just thought his look was too much Korean style, see, this was my stereotype against him even though I have no idea about K-POP. Interestingly, after a IKUN shared the sound source of I Wanna Get Love, I found my stereotype was really ridiculous, I was shocked because KUN wrote it very well actually and this song is really catchy. and I listened the latest live versions, Toronto and Vancouver, I listened at least 20 times, no brag. I enjoyed his change of style, terrific rap, beautiful voice. so I really want to say thanks KUN for your insistence of music, and your live tour showed that you are just Caixukun's style, definitely, very unique and I love it !
其实我以前从来不看韩国流行音乐节目，说实话我甚至不知道权志龙是谁，去年《偶像练习生》我看了KUN的首秀舞台，当时觉得他的造型太韩范了。看，即使我对K-POP完全不了解，我仍然有刻板印象。有意思的是，我入坑之后，一位IKUN分享了《I Wanna Get Love》的音源给我听， 我才发现之前刻板印象非常可笑，KUN这首歌其实写的很好而且歌的旋律非常抓人。就最近的live版，多伦多和温哥华两场，我加起来听了不下20遍吧，不自夸。我很享受他风格的变化，rap很精彩，声音非常好听。所以我其实很想对KUN说，谢谢一直以来你对音乐的坚持，你的巡演舞台说明了你就是你蔡徐坤的风格，非常独特，我真的很喜欢！
Berry: Thank you so much, and as you said, you start following KUN like out of a sudden, how does your family or friends think of you following KUN at this point?
Sharon: I was really shy to let my friends know because we are all PhD students, much older than KUN, but I was surprised that my husband knew KUN's name, he is in California and was totally misleaded by the rumors online, he thought KUN is just like other young celebrities, attending variety shows and attracting fans to spend money for his hot. A beautiful but empty vase. I said no, caixukun has his own music works, the only two shows he attended were KuaiLeDaBenYing and TianTianXiangShang. I recommended my husband to watch KUN's Levi‘s interview and now he bought KUN's music in iTunes and followed KUN's channel in YouTube for me, haha.
Mumu: He did that all for love, haha. That‘s a very good husband. So, Sharon, I am sure you have watched many different interviews and performance, and out of all of these things, what do you like most about KUN? What is one trait that you really brought you to follow him?
爱屋及乌，哈哈, 是个好老公。所以，Sharon, 我相信你已经看过很多KUN的采访和表演了，抛开这些具体细节，你觉得你最喜欢KUN什么？KUN的什么品质打动了你成为他的粉丝？
Sharon: It's a hard question, I love KUN's everything, if I have to specify, I will say it's KUN's music. His music showed his attitude to life, which is to be real, real to himself, real to music, real to IKUN and any others. He is really tough and kind.
KUN inspired my passion to music, I am afraid I cannot follow what he likes, so I learned a lot from IKUN and other network resource, an interesting thing is, when KUN did his DJ music, he occasionally carried the headphone, I thought he just tried to be cool and actually he was monitoring the new track playing in the headphone, and prepared to do music transition,
Mumu：Oh, is that what it is？Well, thank your Sharon for letting us know, I always wondered about it too!
Sharon: It's hard to do perfect music blend, when you learned more about the details of DJ techniques, you will find KUN is really hard-working and talent, and you will want to support him more and more, as long as he get what he want.
Mumu: Totally agree. 完全赞同。
Berry: So as you start following KUN so closely, I am sure that you have met a lot of other IKUNs, who have the same opinion with you. So overall, how do you like the IKUN family?
Sharon: IKUN family is very diverse, I think most of ikuns are very cute. I knew some conflicts happened occasionally, they might become aggressive or impatient. But I think most of IKUNs have the common sense, that is to trust KUN‘s fashion taste, talent and creativity. KUN is very organized, and KUN&IKUN play a long game. So I hope IKUN can lead yourself a happy fan life with positive energy.
Mumu: That's right! And I know KUN want us to do as well: look beyond the negativities, and always keep positive attitudes towards life! And he also want us to be good friends with each other, right?
Berry: Well, thank you so much to Sharon for joining us today, and sharing your experience becoming an IKUN!
Sharon: Thanks for having me! 谢谢你们的邀请！
Berry: For his US tour, I have also noticed a lot of spouses of IKUNs have been lined up with their love to see KUN’s performances. They have to stay in line for couple of hours which is pretty impressive.
Berry: So now let’s have our next special guest, we have David here, David is a husband of an IKUN here, at IKUN meets KUN today,
有请我们的特邀嘉宾David，David是这里一位IKUN的老公，今天受邀参加 IKUN meets KUN节目。
Berry: So, hi David, 你好，David 。
David: Hi Berry, how are you? Berry 你好，最近怎样？
Berry: I am great, thank you for joining us today. 挺好的，谢谢你今天接受我们的采访。
David: Awesome! I am excited to be here. 很好，我很兴奋参加这期节目。
Berry: My first question here is how did you get to know about KUN and what is your opinion of him? 我的第一个问题是你是怎么认识KUN 的，你对KUN有什么看法？
David: Yeah, so I first got to know KUN through my wife who was watching Idol Producer maybe a year or a year and half ago, so, I was kind of sit looking at it and seeing her involved watching interested in these guys, specifically one of the singers or performers of which turned out to be KUN at the time. So I was seeing how he is like a young kid there very hard-working on the show and he didn’t have a company, he’s just by himself competing against everybody else, and then I saw in the end he became the winner and the center of the group. Melisa was telling about me how he worked really hard to get to where he was without any professional training by a large company in the end he became the center of Nine Percent which I thought that was pretty cool.
Berry: Wow, so as you have mentioned that you watched Idol Producer together with your wife, so among all these performances, I really want to hear like what is the most impressive stage to you and what is your opinion about it?
David: There are many performances that my wife showed me online they were all really good but none of them were really like stuck out to me until I went to the New York concert. So, there I saw him in persons, we waited like six to eight hours in line which means we got into the third or fourth row when it opened up. So when he’s performing I got to see him DJ, we were probably like less than 20 feet away from him, and there was really, there was surreal, I think there was a thing I will never forget that because I was there. That’s the most impressive stages I saw, and I was really impressed that he was DJing also he played his remixes, My favorite song is 'Wait Wait Wait', but I also like 'Bigger' because it has more of the EDM influence in it.
我妻子给我看了网上很多表演视频，其实都挺好的，但没有让我眼前一亮的表演。直到我去了KUN 的纽约公演，亲眼看到他表演。 我们在外面排了6到8个小时的队才占到了第三还是四排的位置。当他在台上DJ表演的时候，我们离他只有不到20尺，这感觉特别不真实。所以这次公演让我身临其境，难以忘怀。是目前我印象最深刻的演出，比如他的DJ表演和他歌曲的remix版。 我最喜欢的歌是《Wait Wait Wait》，《Bigger》我也很喜欢，因为里面有很多电音元素。
David: Well he was really different in the concert because he like showed his more like a badass side verses in Nine Percent, you know, he kind of showed more like a cute or boyish personality. But then in the concert, but I understand that he is promoting his songs, so he looks really cool.
他在公演中展示出来的完全是他调皮坏男人的一面，而他在Nine Percent组合里面，表现出来的是可爱大男孩的一面。 公演时他在台上唱歌表演的样子真的非常酷。
Berry: Yeah, as you have mentioned 'Wait Wait Wait', for its music video KUN, actually put a lot of efforts into it as well. KUN invited the Grammy award director Dave Meyers to direct the whole video and he put a lot of different culture elements into it. It‘s like a storytelling, instead of just traditional like dancing video, so when we all saw it (for the) first time, we are just like wow. That’s totally different (from what) we expected.
你提到的《Wait Wait Wait》,这首歌的MV其实KUN下了很大的功夫，他邀请了格莱美得奖导演Dave Meyers来掌镜，他在里面加入了很多文化元素。这个MV像是在讲述一个故事而不是传统的歌舞类型MV。当我们看到MV的时候，我们都惊呆了，跟我们想象的完全不一样。
David: Yeah, so I really like the music video. It’s a very, I would say like artistic or creative in the way that the director had designed it and cast it, and actually, when we were waiting for the New York show, we have met an actor who had a friend that was the woman in the video who had the makeup on. So, there was a pretty cool connection that we made waiting in line. Actually, he had brought his daughter to see the concert.
Berry: That is pretty cool I think. So, as you’ve said your wife had spent a lot time following him around for the U.S. tour, what is your general idea about, like, star-chasing , what is your thought about an idol like KUN？
David: My wife had never done this before, done star chasing. So I was kind of surprised that she flew out to San Francisco to see his concert and then flew to Los Angeles to see his concert and then flew to New York to see the concert as well. So, I actually met her in New York. So I saw the New York concert. By that time she’s already seen two other of his performances and moved across the country with him. I think it’s a good experience to have, especially since he is your favorite artist, so I was proud that she was able to get to do that, that she had the time and money to fly around to follow him.
Berry: So have you ever like lined up for such a long time before just for a concert?
David: Not before KUN but maybe two weeks or so after returning from the New York trip , we’ve went to see my favorite group BLACKPINK, a K-pop group, in Coachella and then a couple weeks later we went to see their New York concert as well.
我们从纽约回来之后大概两个星期，我们去 Coachella 音乐节看了我最喜欢的韩流组合BLACKPINK的表演，几周以后我们又看了她们在纽约的演唱会。
Berry: So, what is the experience different in seeing concert like Black pink and for going to a show like live house show for KUN?
你觉得KUN 的 live house 形式的演出和BLACKPINK 的演唱会有什么不同？
David: BLACKPINK is obviously from a much larger company, so they have much larger production of the concert base. Whereas KUN’s concert is more like a, more intimate concert cause there were fewer people and it’s in a smaller environment. So, if you were really there, that meant you were really a true fan, you know. When I went to KUN’s concert, we were 20 feet away from him. To see his growth since he first started out on Idol Producer to where he is right now,DJing his own shows by himself, headlining his own concert, that was really cool.
BLACKPINK来自于大的经纪公司，所以他们演唱会的制作会比较大型一些。KUN的公演是那种能和偶像更近距离互动的感觉，观众在一个比较小的空间里聚集。如果你在那里，感觉你就是他最核心的粉丝。 我在他的公演中跟他只有20尺的距离 （你可以想象一下是什么感觉）。看到他从《偶像练习生》到现在的成长，做DJ表演，开办个人公演，真的非常酷。
Berry: So can you share with us like one or two funny moments at the show？
David: Like I said earlier, we were like one of the first people in line so which allowed us to be in the third or fourth row in the concert, and after the concert, a few days later, Melisa was reading to me some comments that some other IKUNs have posted regarding the New York concert, and said somebody was saying that at the New York concert there was a really tall guy with his girlfriend or wife, and he is blocking all our views, so we can’t see past him, and what made it worse was at the end of concert when KUN was taking pictures, this tall guy lifted his girlfriend or wife above, blocking everybody else behind him, so they couldn’t see, So, I apologize to all the IKUNs for being so tall and blocking their views, but it was a good experience I hope they still enjoyed the show.
Berry: Wow, I am pretty sure that this kind of special experience will bring a lot of like impressive memories. I am actually very curious like about how did you guys balance those time and did you ever like feel jealous of KUN because of your wife had spent a lot of time like following him?
David: I never feel jealous. I think its great that she has her own hobbies, so from you know watching the show Idol Producer at the beginning, maybe I thought that she was watching too much TV, but when I saw that she was you know really interested in KUN and also start to spend time working with Kunsland, the fan group, I started to realize that this’s like a really good hobby of hers so I support her to continue working on it. You know, because it‘s her hobby, she is really interested in. I think that the time she is working on it, I can work on my hobbies as well, like exercising or playing games or reading, you know, so it’s good to have our own time alone as well.
Berry: Thanks so much for sharing your own stories with us, it's very nice to chat with you.
David: Thanks for having me, Berry! 谢谢邀请我加入，Berry！
Berry: And we really hope to meet you someday at KUN’s concert if there is a chance.
David: I am looking forward to hear more KUN in the future, hopefully my wife and I meet up with you some time during the next his concert. To Cai Xukun, jiayou!
Berry: Woo, jia you! Thanks so much for our new IKUN and akjf for sharing their stories with us today. But guys, biubiubiu, attention! This is just part 1 of our guest interviews. Next week, we will have a boyfriend of an IKUN and also an male fan himself, as well as a lovely IKUN couple from Belgium to chat with us. The stories will be continued...
Mumu：Yea, stay tuned for next week! To learn more about KUN and his music, please visit Kundland’s official website at kunworldtour.com!
Berry: Talk to you soon! 回头再聊！
Mumu: bye! 拜！
