K-Pop UCC Craze #1 [Arirang Global UCC Contest]






Arirang Global Korean Television had a contest where people from all over the globe submit their rendition of a kpop song video and send it to them. Here U-Kiss members Kevin (left) and Alexander (right) host as we view the UCC or "user created content" kpop videos. 601 videos were sent in. Those people are definitely  tuning into international music. Can you guess which kpop groups were featured the most often? Poor U-Kiss, I'm sure Kiss-mes everywhere are shaking their heads and saying their wish they had sent in their version of "Binguel Binguel" "Man Man Hani" or "Shut Up" so Kevin and Alex would see them. I would have loved to see the recreated costumes for those. Oh well maybe next time. Which are your favorite videos? I think my one of my favorites shown was at 14:03 UV "No Cool I'm Sorry" it was reenacted so well I had a little bit of trouble distinguishing the real from the spoof. They were both hilarious. Did you submit a video? Tell us about it.

[EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW] RONNIE ICON

1.) Your name, what you are called, and/or alias? 

Ronnie Icon, although Ronnie Scholtes is my real name. 

2.) Where you are from, where you are active? 

I'm from The Netherlands, and I'm mostly active on Youtube. It's my way of being international. :) 

3.) What age did you start?

I started writing songs when I was about 10 years old, but I didn't go to music college until my 22nd. I started my Youtube channel early 2015.

4.) What's your inspiration? 

Anything K-pop, really. Before I found out about K-pop, I'd been drawn to American pop artists like Jesse McCartney, but also artists like Bjork. Then I came across K-pop and my entire field of reference changed. I first got into EXO, but gradually I started learning all about other artists as well.

5.) What's your style?

K-pop inspired songs, remixes and covers. I like to think that, as a European based, K-pop inspired artist, I blend a little of both worlds. An EDM inspired sound mixed with the pop music I now listen…
