Elders React To K/DA – POP/STARS (Virtual K-Pop Group/League Of Legends)
– Is this supposed
to be real people? They don't look real.
– Doesn't matter for real or not, you gotta look good
to sell. (laughs) ♪ (ragtime intro) ♪ – Ooh. Oh, it's foreign.
– ♪ Coming 'round again ♪ ♪ You want a dose of this ♪
♪ Right now ♪ ♪ It's K/DA, uh ♪
– It looks like a music video. – Is this supposed
to be real people? They don't look real. – The graphics are nice.
– It's sort of exciting music. Do I know what it is? No. – It sounds like– what's her name?
Nicki Minaj. – It reminds me of Nicki Minaj.
– It sounds to me like Meghan Trainor. – A little technology,
good technology. Ooh. – ♪ …on me now ♪
♪ (singing in Korean) ♪ – I see Korean language. – Very exotic.
– I like the song. I can't understand it,
but I like the beat. – Lots of color, keeps your attention.
The Avatar thing is always nice. – Oh, boy, does that
have big teeth. Scary! – ♪ (rapping in Korean)
– Nice colors and everything, but… you know, this is for kids.
– Very artistic, very creative. And very boring, I might add.
– ♪ Said I'm on fire with a blade ♪ ♪ You're about to hear my name ♪
♪ Ringing in your head like whoa ♪ – Really like the video.
I like the visuals. – Look at that.
That's beautiful. – It's not as hard
as the real rap thing, but… very smooth.
– Cartoon characters I think make it a little less
in your face. – ♪ Down down down
down down down ♪ ♪ They could try it,
but we're gonna wear the crown ♪ ♪ You could go another round ♪
♪ Round round round round… ♪ – Good dance music.
– Girl power. (laughs) – ♪ Till we get it, get it ♪
♪ We go hard ♪ – I'm not into cartoons.
I'm not into comic books and stuff like that.
Maybe I'm just old. – I've never heard of it,
and I don't really like it. – It reminds me
of the psychedelic days. (chuckles) – I remember
when you get high on things and you see funny things. – See? Something like this
keeps my attention 'cause I try to figure out
how they did it. – The graphics are outstanding. – ♪ Ain't nobody bring us ♪ ♪ Ain't nobody bringing us ♪
♪ Down down… ♪ – It's kind of cool.
I kind of like this. – ♪ Da da ♪
♪ Da da da da ♪ ♪ Da da da da ♪
♪ Ba da da da ♪ – ♪ Round round round
round round round ♪ ♪ Wish you luck,
but you're not… ♪ – I don't even know
should I follow the song or follow the animation.
– I wish I knew what this story line was,
but I can't quite figure it out. – ♪ Ain't nobody bringing us ♪
♪ Down down down down ♪ – Yay! (claps)
– I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I have no clue
what the hell went on there. BORING!
– In this video, you have girls scantily dressed.
But when it's a cartoon character, it's not in your face,
here's another sexual video. So, I like that about it. – (FBE) So, we have more
to show you in a second, but that was
the debut single "Pop Stars" by K-pop group K/DA.
– K/DA. – (FBE) What you saw was them.
– Are you serious? – (FBE) They're a virtual band. – Oh my goodness!
– I'm not even sure– (chuckles) that– is that a new concept? – (FBE) So, before we explain
more of this to you, we have photos of each band member.
– Oh, okay. Cool. – (FBE) So, I'm gonna try my best to
pronounce everyone's name correctly. – Okay.
– (FBE) This is Ahri, one of the lead singers
of the group. – Uh-huh.
– (FBE) She's a fox mage with nine tails.
She has the ability to force her enemies
to walk towards her in love thanks to her little heart charm.
– I can see that. (chuckles) She got me.
– Doesn't matter for real or not, you gotta look good
to sell. (laughs) – Ohh, so they're superheroes,
so to speak. – Kids like this kind of thing,
and I think it's great for them. Personally, I don't think
much of it. – Everybody's trying
to do something different, you know, and have,
I guess, a different gimmick, hook, whatever you wanna call it
to make their music. So, you know, if it works,
it works. – (FBE) So, the next one is Akali.
She's the group's rapper and a ninja who wears
a neon mask with a huge dragon tattoo. – Yeah, that's fantastic.
Someday, when she's old, she'll be sorry she got that.
– (FBE) And is great with throwing her kunai, which is a Japanese blade.
– Uh-huh. Sounds like my ex-wife. – The expression in her eyes
is a little more serious and deadly than the other one.
– I'm guessing, by the way this is
being described to me, that they're not just a singing group,
that they may even end up part of a video game or something.
Yeah, brilliant. Brilliant marketing. – (FBE) Here is the next one.
It's Evelynn. She's a purple demon diva
who is in shadow form, so she can hide from her enemies.
She is a vixen, whose romantic partners
seem to always go missing. – Mm-kay, check those nails out.
All right. – With those nails,
I'm not surprised. (laughs) She probably
scratches them to death. – So, she must be appearing
on Cold Case next time. – (FBE) So, the last one is Kai'Sa.
She's the main dancer of the group. She's a marksmen
who can shoot missiles from the cannons that float
above her shoulders. – I guess each one
have their own ability. They're different.
That's why they come as a group maybe. You know, like the Power Ranger
once was. – I like it.
It's colorful. It's fun. It's imaginative.
The music is nice. – I really like the style, yes.
A different generation, but I really like it.
It's clean. It's fun. I don't have any inhibitions
about any of the characters. – (FBE) So, K/DA
is actually created by Riot Games for the video game
League of Legends… – Ohhh.
– (FBE) …which is a popular multiplayer online video game.
– Yes, and you guys had me play it, too. (chuckles)
That was really fun. – (Rock) Shoot somethin'.
Yeah! Shoot somebody!
You got it! – It allowed me to do something
I hadn't done before. You know, challenging.
– (FBE) The music video that we showed you
garnered 13 million views in its first 48 hours.
– Oh my gosh. – (FBE) And the band already
has a massive fan base. What do you think people like
about this group so much? – They're kids.
– I don't know why they like it. It's the newest thing out there.
– The first thing that comes to mind is the speed of things.
Today, especially with younger people, it's the age of speed,
you know, and quicker, faster, what's next.
It's all stimulating and enticing. – I think you can relate
to it a lot faster. You can identify yourself
from each individual character that was in there.
– People like to escape from the everyday world
they're living in, the struggles,
paying the bills, the rent, whatever, and they need
this kind of distraction. They need to lose themselves
into something mystical. – (whispers) A little like texting. When it's not a real human
you're looking at, it's just something safer emotionally
to put your feelings into than something real.
– (FBE) League of Legends debuted the K-pop band
during the world championship finals, which are one of the competitions
in the realm of e-sports, which are like the Olympics
for video games, to showcase the new skins
for the game. Do you know what skins are?
– No. The surface of the game? – Skin is, like, the winner?
– In my days, skins, you played golf
or you played a sport for skins. And that was a term for money.
– I would imagine it's the… suit. – (FBE) So, skins
are the various ways gamers change their physical appearance
in video games. – Gotcha.
– (FBE) League of Legends is actually free to download and play,
but apparently, they charge players $10
for each K/DA skin. – I can look that pretty?
Okay, I like it. – (FBE) Can you imagine
playing a free game and then paying extra money
to obtain these different skins? – I think it's wrong.
It's really kind of teaching them that unless you look like this,
something's wrong with you. – They got you hooked.
Try a free sample. And the rest will cost you.
That's capitalism. I am not surprised.
– I would buy it. You know, if you wanna be
a part of it, it's fun. It's not harmful,
you know? I think that's one of the things
that we need today. – If people want to do that
and that's their passion, I don't have a problem with that.
If they can figure a way to sell what they have,
go for it. (chuckles) – Nobody looks perfect,
and I think all of us have some kind of imagination.
We'd like to change our hair, our nose, you know,
a little tweak here, a little tweak there.
I think that's just human nature. – (FBE) Well, the introduction
of this virtual K-pop group has brought together gamers
and non-gamers as well. Those who are pop fans
are now invested in K/DA and follow along with the music
even if they're not interested in the video game itself.
– That makes sense. – (FBE) From what you have seen
with marketing from bands growing up, what do you think
about this strategy behind bringing in
a wider audience through this type of marketing?
– Yeah, it works. Why didn't I think
of something like that? I could be making a few
$10 at a time. – It's very smart, you know,
because I don't play video game, but because of this,
I think I can relate to it, and I would check it out.
– Anything you can do to increase your market share,
thereby increase your revenue, increase your net profit,
is justifiable. It's all about money in the end,
of course, and giving people what they want.
– (FBE) So finally, after learning a little about K/DA,
do you think this is where the future of music is headed?
– (chuckles) Certainly with young people.
Not even the millennial. There's a group
after the millenials. – It's a fad, and it will pass
as all the other fads have. – I don't think
it's where it's headed. I just think it's an off-shoot.
– Probably so. Might even buy it myself
or play the game myself. – It's a future
for the gamers. I don't think people
that really wanna go to a concert and– that's n–
and look at the live videos, whether it's MTV or whatever,
that's not gonna change. – I would hope not.
I hope we don't get to that point. I like– you know,
I'm too much of a realist, I guess. – I hope not.
– I like to look at someone and say, "Wow, I respect
that person's talent." That gives us something real
to look up to and aspire to. Not something that's manufactured
on a computer. – Thanks for watching Elders React.
