Why Jihye’s Youtube channel name is “Attention Seeker Unnie” [Happy Together/2020.02.20]On February 20, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
All three ladies here are busy working hard. Misun just started her personal channel. It’s been less than a month, and you have more than 70,000 subscribers. – That’s really fast. / – 80,000. – 80,000 subscribers. / – You will soon – get the Silver Play Button. / – Yes. – You get it when you get 100,000. / – Yes. – 100,000 subscribers. / – You get the silver button. It provides me the platform where I can do fun things, and I’m really enjoying it. Your channel is called “MISUN:IMPOSSIBLE”. – Do you try new things? / – Yes. I try new things. I saw her doing a cosplay. I saw it. – Right. / – What’s that? Who is it? At first, I couldn’t tell who she was dressed up as. There were a lot of memes that said Misun looks like Cinderella’s stepsister. – Right. / – She actually dressed up as her. I know someone who looks like her. – At first, / – Cinderella’s evil stepsister. – I didn’t know it was Misun. / – Right? – Yes. / – She looks really different. – I know someone / – I didn’t – who looks like her. / – expect it. It looks so good on you. If they do a film adaptation, they will hire me, right? – You look just like her. / – She acts well too. – I came out of the animation. / – Right. Jihye is a more experienced YouTuber. Does she teach you the tips? I always tell her this. I tell her to be very real. – People who watch YouTube / – Right. don’t want to see you being the celebrity. – Right. / – They want to see the raw side. They want to see your raw side. They want you to be just like them. So I told Misun to be real. I told her not to wear any makeup. She told me about the comments she got. I told her to respond to the comments and to communicate with people. I thought of all these ideas, – so I told her / – She’s really smart. – what she should do. / – Jihye – is a more popular YouTuber than me, / – Right. so I ask for a lot of advice. – And does her advice help? / – It helps. She told me to relax a little. She told me not to act like how I act on TV. – I’m so used to acting that way. / – Right. I wondered if it was okay. TV personalities find it hard. – Right. / – She told me not to do that. That made me realize that I should put everything down and start anew. So I do that now. Even if I am clumsy, I try to do that. By the way, Jihye’s YouTube channel is very popular. – I love the channel name. / – I love it. You introduce yourself as that even on your radio show. – “Gwanjong Un-ni”. / – “Gwanjong Un-ni”. “Gwanjong Un-ni”. – That’s the name. / – Kim Shinyoung named it. – Yes. / – Right. I used to suffer from what they call, “celebrity disorder”. Whenever I was going to a TV station, especially when I wasn’t doing so well, I wore designer brand clothes not to get looked down on. I carried a designer brand bag. I wore all the designer brand things I could find in the house. The writers and Shinyoung said to me, “Why are you wearing designer brand clothes?” “She’s such a cute attention seeker, ‘Gwanjong Un-ni’.” She said that. When I met up with my YouTube team and had a meeting, they suggested the name to be “Easy Jihye”. – It sounded terrible. / – “Easy Jihye”? I wanted something tight – and impactful. / – Right. I said we needed to find a perfect name. So I suggested “Gwanjong Un-ni”. It was long but good. I said, “‘Gwanjong Un-ni’ is perfect.” – So that became my channel name. / – It’s perfect. – It was perfect. / – I paid Shinyoung 50 dollars. – You paid her 50 dollars? / – I didn’t want her – to claim it as hers later. / – Well done. – She will say that. / – She’s very capitalistic. – Shinyoung is like that. / – Capitalistic. – Money silenced her. / – Right. – Money silenced her. / – So I paid her 50 dollars. – She can’t claim it any longer. / – She can’t. I took a video too. – I gave her 50 dollars. / – You took a video of that? I had to as proof. Her husband shows up on her channel too. I heard you pay him – for his appearance too. / – She has to. – I have to. / – He contributes so much. – Is it per episode? / – Well done. Not per episode. I give him a share of the profit. This is what I realized after working together. I experienced my group Sharp’s disbandment. There are times when you are popular. When one member is particularly popular. – You have to maintain it well. / – Right. So I told my husband. At first, I told him I’d give him 10 percent. But more people watch it when he’s there. And he knows that now. He’s going to make his own channel. – He did. / – No way. – Really? / – Did he? – He did. / – I knew it. He only just made his channel, and he already got 3,000 subscribers. He’s a tax accountant. – He must calculate things so fast. / – He is fast. He calculates things fast, so he’s been insisting to go independent – and to run his own channel. / – My gosh. I told him he couldn’t do that. We fought yesterday. You can’t do that. You shouldn’t get dispersed. “I already went through it once.” “Will you do this to me again?” – “I won’t do it again.” / – That’s not related. We can’t do it. So we negotiated, and I agreed to raise his share to 20 percent. – Shouldn’t you give him more? / – That’s a big raise. – That’s for now. / – If he decides to quit his job and become a professional YouTuber, will you allow it? He can’t do it. He can’t do that. As a tax accountant, – you can make a living all your life. / – Right. As a YouTuber, you will make a living only for a while. – Not all your life. / – You perfectly understand it. Here’s what I predicted. For a little more while… I think YouTube will boom for 6, 7 more years. That’s why I jumped into it. That was my calculation when I jumped into it. And it worked. Do you have a plan for 6, 7 years later? After 6, 7 years, I’ll be a trot singer. You released “Puzzle Me”. – Trot is in trend now. / – Trot is… – In trend right now. / – I gave it a try. She released “Puzzle Me”. – She released an album. / – Right. I wanted people to sing it when they are puzzled.
