Announcing the 2013 EYKA!

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of year again. We did our first Eatyourkimchi Awards last year when we just moved into the studio, and now that our one year anniversary is coming up, and the end of the year is coming up as well, it’s about time to open up our polls for the 2013 Awards!

We’ve got loads of different categories. Best Vocals. Best Rookies. Best Aegyo. Best Male Group. Best Hip Hop. And more. There are lots of categories to vote on, lots of different artists to support. Or, if you’re not fully up to date with Kpop as religiously as others, you can at least peruse through the nominees and see what was big for the year.

2013 was an exceptionally fruitful year, with tons of bands making heaps of videos, so, surely, with only ten nominees per category, there will be some bands and videos that got slighted. Sorry if your choices didn’t make it! Our mod team along with a group of dedicated Epic Nasties compiled the videos for the list, and it wasn’t an absolutely peaceful voting in/voting out process, but everyone tried to be as fair as possible, so I hope people won’t be too upset if their choices didn’t make it in. We can’t fit in everyone! Thank you to the people that helped put this together :D

We’re going to be announcing the nominees of all of the categories over the next few days. Get to voting over at the 2013 EYKA Page. Voting closes December 6th, 11:59PM, Korean Time. Then we’ll start filming and putting everything together, and we’ll publish the 2013 EYKAs on December 23rd. Booya!

The Nominee videos will be released bit by bit from today onwards. For now, here’s the first nomination video: Best Hip Hop of 2013.

Make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss out on any of the nominees, because we won’t be making blog posts for all of them. That’d be insane!

  1. Kind of confused, I thought nominees for Best boy group couldn’t have debuted in 2012? Cuz I remember reading through the thread discussing the nominees…

  2. Definitely agree, I was drawn to eyk for the KMMs, I used to vote like a mad person, but I don’t do it much anymore. I wish it would go back to how it was in the beginning. The awards also tend to make me mad over the nominees, I know it’s not S&M’s fault, but it’s so competitive. Still, I love eyk.

    on another note, U-kiss will always be best boy group in my heart…

  7. I’m really rooting for some underdogs here and there, but for some categories, I know they won’t come even close to the top 3 :(

    However, since there’s no specific page with comment for each category, I’ll talk a bit about “best plot” category :
    For me, the best plot in a MV is “It’s my fault” from Speed. Actually, they also did another MV that was the prequel or the sequel to this MV, I’m not quite sure. Anyway, here is why it’s the best. First, there’s actually a real plot with a start and an ending, a storyline, climax and stuff. Other MV have plot, but their plot is half plot, half concept, meaning there’s not that much of a real storyline in it. Then, and most of all, the story is about a part of Korea recent history (1985 or 1986). It was done in a way, if you didn’t already knew about Gwangju rebellion, you would want to learn what happened and why. Finally, the story (and the history behind it) deeply moved me.

    I know Jin’s Gone or T-ARA N4 is going to win. T-ARA had a great song (though I prefer the dance MV), Gone has a great plot (though I don’t care much about both the song and MV, I can recognize it might move some and I also love the actress who’s so good even though she still young – she played in The Moon Embracing The Sun and was great in that too), but I really think, for all the reason I’ve said earlier, that Speed should get more aknoledgement.

    After watching this MV, I actually got really really interested in Korean history. I’ve just finished reading about the prehistoric through the Japanese occupation and I’m starting Korea War tomorrow. I can say I’ve cried reading history now…

  10. The Vocal nominees is too difficult to chose!!!!!!

    3 years ago
  11. I actually agree, especially with the first part!
    S&M used to warn ppl that they won’t do KMM before but they don’t do it regularly (the warnings I mean) now -__-

    I also miss How To Dance Kpop Style (ㅠ.ㅠ)
    I love the Best Potential KMM category cos it actually results in a real KMM [I’ve became a Nasty because of KMM and I regularly watch only TL;DRs & WTFs and DICKS now, the rest of stuff is good but not really what makes me love EYK], the other categories are good only for information purposes for ME cos they contain quite interesting vids that I might have missed during the year~^^

  12. Hey guise you should’ve made a best scandal and best rapper of the year, just for the fun of it.

    3 years ago
    • well best hip-hop is sorta like best rapper….

      3 years ago
      • Hmm yeah, just saw the video of the nominees, thought it was focused in a particular song.

        3 years ago
        • well all the nominees in that category are considered phenomenal rappers in the khip-hop community so even if it is focused on that one particular song, they are all still really good rappers. There are sooooooo many that are missing though because there are only 10 spots so unfortunately some were left off. :(

          EDIT: ok, phenomenal may have been an overstatement, but they’re all considered really good. :D

  13. The best solo playlist has a PROBLEM!
    instead of Jay Park there’s Lee Hyori MV, and PSY and Junsu are not working at all!

    3 years ago
    • I have taken note of the issue and let them know about it but as @thisisforfun:disqus said, they are probably asleep at the moment and so will take a bit to get it fixed.

      Thanks,
      Natz

    • You are correct, there does appear to be a glitch in the Matrix on the soloist voting page. I’m sure it’s just a video link problem and they’ll check into it when the wake up. Links and coding are so picky I swear.

      3 years ago
      • oh, thanks!
        I thought no one would notice my comment ;P

        3 years ago
        • S&M are pretty good at noticing comments, but they are such night owls they probably just went to bed a few hours ago. Just wanted to give you some assuring that they would see it, it would just take many hours lol. They’ll be glad you brought it to their attention.

  14. Yay~ I loved these last time! I can’t wait! ^^

  15. Hi guys! Do you think you could update this post to include links to the playlists for the other categories. Even though most people follow you on all the other social medias not everyone does or doesn’t check them regularly. Plus it would be nice to have them all housed in one place. If it’s possible, just a suggesting :)

  16. I liked that video only because :
    1) I realized it is suppose to be before Hyde and go up to the point when they turn into Hyde
    2) It was done backwards
    3) they sang / lip-sang backwards the entire song

    That’s how I saw it. I liked the song more than the video…And if we talk about VIXX, I’d rather they put Hyde or the voodoo MV.

    3 years ago
  17. When I saw the most bizzare video category, I had to think of VIXX’s voodoo (doll) MV…

  18. Besides searching for them on Youtube, how do I see all of the nomination videos? Is there a place on this site to see them?

    3 years ago
    • The only way to see all the nomination videos as they are uploaded is to be subscribed to the eatyourkimchi channel on youtube. It would be nice though if all of the playlists were linked in this blog post but so far I don’t see that happening.

      Cheers,
      Natz

      • I figured you would do it at the end instead of updating the blog post for each category. Good job! :-P

        It makes me sad(ish) that they haven’t released a song yet this year. Here’s to hoping that they do in 2014

  23. Oh guys <3
    And I was rewatching last year's awards last night :'D I'll vote this time, last time I was new to all this. Love you guys.

    3 years ago
  24. I thought GR8U was their worst video to date imo. They looked like they felt awkward as hell which in turn made me feel awkward while watching it.

    3 years ago
  25. I’m not sure why someone would down vote this since it wasn’t said disrespectfully. But I kind of agree with the first part. Why not just take down the charts for the weeks you know there won’t be a KMM? I’m not personallydisappointed, since my involvement ends with one or two clicks, but I do feel for the people who spent so much effort voting.

    3 years ago
    • This isn’t how I see down votes, but of course it’s different for each person. Personally I see them as someone disliking a post for what’s been said in it, not necessarily simply disagreeing with it. There are plenty of posts I disagree with, but don’t down vote. For example I’ll down vote a post that is simply bashing someone/something but I won’t down vote a post that makes a suggestion that I simply don’t care for. But again, it’s all personal opinion.

      3 years ago
    • I wouldn’t take the down-votes as a bad thing. I’m sure that some people use it to simply say that they disagree with your opinion, not necessarily that they didn’t approve of what you said. (though I admit it could also be uber-sensative fans.) I didn’t vote up or down because I don’t really know how to feel about the lack of KMMs lately. I miss them, a lot, but it also seems like Simon and Martina are enjoying these other things more, which makes them fun to watch.

      As for voting, I gave up voting for KMM a long time ago. There was too much negativity in the comment area and I found myself becoming disappointed when my bias wasn’t chosen. I found that I enjoyed it more when I just sat back and watched to see whichever band they chose. To be really honest, I wish they’d take down the polls entirely and just pick whichever video they wanted to talk about, since those tend to be the best.

      So, yeah, idk about the lack of KMMs. It’s different. I don’t know if it’s good different, bad different, or just different different (this made sense before I typed it)

      3 years ago
      • I like the polls because I scan them for artists I may not have heard or seen before. I don’t even bother voting anymore.

        And you’re last comment makes perfect sense. I came to EYK for the KMMs and stayed for everything else. I love how S&M (thank you guys for all the work you put into this site!) give their commentary on life as expats, but I don’t know how I feel about the lack of KMMs either.

        3 years ago
      • This is exactly how KMMs are for me as well. The /only/ times I’ve ever been dissapointed is when VIXX is in the top three and S&M decide to not do a KMM that week. Otherwise I tend to not care what MV is chosen because I watch more for Simon and Martina themselves than the actual video being reviewed.

        3 years ago
    • Simon and Martina do take constructive criticism but unfortunately not everyone who reads the comments are like that. I ( as well as most other people on disqus) get downvoted regularly for saying the most innocuous of things. Alas, we can’t block the ability to downvote. Ah well.

      Also in response to your original comment. I find that there are others who also agree with you on that however it really depends on how Simon and Martina feel about it. Trust me they have a lot of critics and if they were to try to make everyone happy they would go crazy. So if they don’t want to do it, you can’t force them.

      EYK has changed over the last 5-6 years and not everyone is going to or has to like it. You can always suggest things to make it better but it really up to S&M to do what they feel is best. It is therefore up to you as commenters and viewers to decide how you will respond to their new decisions and directions. And of course you might have to grow a thick skin because not everyone will agree with how you feel.

      Cheers,
      Natz

      3 years ago
      • oh, I figured you understood. That comment was for everyone/anyone reading who may have felt similarly. Sometimes my comments are not always directed at a specific person. Especially since I am a moderator and see so many different opinions. Sometimes my comments become a catch all for general issues.

        This is why we had contemplated having a FAQ page or forum, so discussions like this can occur. And to prove my point, see how that comment got downvoted? Now I have no idea why it was downvoted and it doesn’t really bother me outside of the fact that perhaps if the person had responded to me and asked a question perhaps we could be having a conversation about whatever issue they have with what I said or the way I said it.

        But alas, I have no idea what it was about my comment that they didn’t agree with and therefore I cannot correct it if it is something that needed correction.

        Also, tone is very subjective when in a written form. I am not trying to be preachy or accusative. I actually was agreeing a lot with what you said, but I find that others (who may lurk on the site) sometimes need an explanation for things.

        Ah well.

        Cheers,

    What can you offer us? Spudgy’s rendition of EYK’s greatest hits?

  32. squeeeeeee EYKAs! finally!

    I hope I can vote for Jaejoong somewhere, there is no best album category, WWW is probably one of my top 3 favourite kpop albums of all times, and I want 2NE1’s Missing You for best song, I’ve never loved a song from a group I’m not even a fan of so much

    the memories~

  35. The name of the award show… awkward… But I see what you did there.

    3 years ago
  36. Could there be a OFF EYKA? With categories like “Best Soo Zee Doppelganger”, “Best Leigh Cut-Out Appearance”, “Best Memers Video Bombing” or “Best Use of Kimchi in a MV”. Both in Kpop MV (but closely related to a EYK aspect) and in EYK original videos, like a meta-award of some sort.

    3 years ago
    • Hah! Amusingly enough, some of those were contenders for EYKA categories. But they had to cut it down to 15 categories.

      3 years ago
      • NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I’m sure they have a lot of work so they had to make a choice. But still, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

        3 years ago

  39. Vocals is honestly going to be the hardest category for me to vote for. I’m a sucker for amazing vocalists and I could easily vote for almost all of them, if not all of them. Decisions, decisions, decisions. AH! I’m so torn.

    • Hey! What about “smokey gil” ono but we all know the “Loofah’s on fire” was a winner XD

      3 years ago
    • There isn’t much that was super funny this year.
      All I can think of is Loofah’s on fire, I’m addict (x10), and all of the English version of OddEye’s Catch Me If You Can.

      Also I’m kinda glad it isn’t included, who wants to hear “Hey you won an award for speaking the worst English!” lol.

      3 years ago
      • Ah man, I love Number 9 but that almost ruined that song for me. Once was enough, twice was pushing it, but it just kept going and going. It wasn’t even funny, it just hurt a bit.

  41. something is wrong with counting votes (best vocal performances, it wasn’t like that with hip hop). I’ve refreshed the page and all of them are resetted.

  43. Yay, this came even earlier than I expected, I’m super excited! But I second what Jamie said about announcing the nominees, I really liked those videos last year, they weren’t too blabbery at all :) I bet you have a lot of funny and/or spot-on things to say about the nominated videos.

    YAY!

  44. What are the voting limits? Or is it the same tally system that the regular KMM charts use?

    3 years ago
    • Same voting system, you are limited on votes daily per artist, but you can vote for as many artists as you like.

      Edit: Except comments aren’t for points since these videos were all on the charts before, you can still comment on the videos for fun though. :)

      3 years ago

    Will there be a Kpop Music Monday this week?

    3 years ago
    • I wish we had time to do so, but we filmed five nominee videos and the announcement video, as well as prepared the KpopAwards page and playlists for every nominee category. It was either the EYKAs or Music Monday. We didn’t have time for both. Sorry :(

      3 years ago
    • I totally see what Simon and Martina did! S&M: Hmmm… U-Kiss, Taeyang, TOP, and now 2ne1! Choosing just one video for KMM is going to be difficult.
      Spudy: Mum! Mum! I know, why don’t you start EYKA voting and distract everyone from KMM?
      S&M: Brilliant!

  49. I’ve been waiting for the holidays and new year’s eve all year, not because of Christmas and family reunions or delicious food, but for this : the 2013 EYKA. Seriously.
    I’ve been thinking about it all year long!!! YEAH!

    Annual review and awards are THE BEST! Even more when they’re done by Simon and Martina ;)

    3 years ago
    • Just vote for all of them.
      I can’t really decide between Dynamic Duo, Gaeko, LeeSSang, Swings, or Verbal Jint and Bumkey.
      LeeSSang and Swings are like a tier below for me but I still like them enough to vote for them as of now lol.
      If I had to choose only one it’d be tough between DD and VJ but I might lean towards VJ since I really like Bumkey also lol.

      3 years ago
      • Oh and I forgot “Wash Away” from Geeks!

        3 years ago
      • Yes maybe. That said, even though I like LeeSSang, I was kinda conflicted with the song. In the “tears” departement this year, I was much more into “Shower of Tears”, by Baechigi. If it was in the list, I would be terribly torned between Dynamic Duo and them. Both “Shower of Tears” and “BAAAM!” were a big freaking deal for me this year, and still are. All of the other songs I either enjoy them for a while but stop listening to them after a few weeks or really deeply hated a lot.

  52. No Best Subunit of 2013???? There were like a bunch of subunits this year from Infinite H to 2yoon to ubeat to Sistar19! Would’ve of been a great category specific for 2013 considering how many released stuff this year

    3 years ago
    • Idt think there were ten, the beginning of the year had like five right off the bat but that trend pretty much died later on
      Not even OC had a release! sorta…

      3 years ago
      • Lets see, Infinte h, sistar19, 2yoon, ubeat, ZE:a5, dasoni (exid),t-ara n4, super junior m, and troublemaker all already released stuff while 100% v and m & n(miryo and narsha) are coming up. OC should of released something this year, same with Taetiseo

        3 years ago
        • I think 100% was released past the cutoff date.
          OC technically could have been included, you might see a couple vids from 2012 that were released after the cutoff date for the last EYKAs.
          And I wouldn’t consider Troublemaker a subunit since it’s from two different groups, also I wouldn’t totally consider M since it was made for a totally separate market.

          But either way S&M only wanted a certain number of categories, there were lots of categories that could have been included if we had unlimited category amounts.
          Videos with flowers, videos with cats, some categories from last year, etc.

          But yeah at the beginning of the year I was like, ooh this would make a great EYKA category, but it just didn’t keep up the pace very much, it’s more fun to have to eliminate ppl because there are so many nominees as opposed to shoe ins.

          3 years ago
        • Btw I do understand that are limits to the number of categories and etc. so it’s cool if some categories were scrapped cause reall there are like a bajillion out there to ever include all

        • Ahh I see, but Troublemaker would still technically be a subunit IMO just because they’re each from different groups doesn’t mean they can form a unit. I only included M because didn’t they promote in Korea for a while? It should kinda count, its not like I included T-ara QBS and ZE:A4U since they were only in Japan and didn’t promote in Korea whereas M did but they’re marketed differently (I have no clue what I said but I hope you get my point).

        • Yeah, but that wouldn’t really be a “Subunit” It’s more of a collaboration.

  54. K HIP-HOP I’M IN TEARS. Can I just vote for all of them?

    3 years ago
    • Yes you can lol, but that’s essentially like you didn’t vote any of them.

      3 years ago
      • I’m fully aware of this, just felt that a rhetorical question will properly convey my enthusiasm. Besides, I exaggerated a little, I only voted for like six of them.

        3 years ago
        • Well a lot of ppl seem to not know you can vote multiples ….or maybe they just say that…

          lol I voted five myself.

          3 years ago
        • Oh no. I had no idea what to do with KHH category, but Best Vocals made me cry with frustration. At least the strictly k-popish categories will be easy, I’m way too picky with them.

  55. Are you guys not discussing the vids this time around or was that just for this category?
    Your short little blurbs about the vids last year were like the best part lol.

    3 years ago
    • I still replay last years ‘Best Engrish’ category, it was hilarious

      3 years ago
    • But….we can’t even see said nominees! The clips are waaaaaay too short :, (

      • We can’t show too long of a clip for copyright purposes :(

      • *cough cough* I think this is the general consensus but I believe they have filmed quite a few of them already.

        3 years ago
    • I like the commentary on the videos because not only are they funny and interesting, but it also feels more sincere to hear about what you guys think of the video. When you’re just naming things off quickly, it sounds too official like other award shows. Where’s the fun in that? D; I don’t watch the EYKA videos to see who’s nominated. I watch the videos to hear your input on the videos (and to watch your lovely, funny selves, of course). ^_^

      • Actually, I think they’ll do like last year and release a couple lists each day until all are showing up, which is why you can’t see all of them yet. Stay tuned in the following days^^

      The blurbs were great because even if our favorite didn’t win, we still got to hear y’all talk about it a little bit. :)

      3 years ago
    • No!!!! Maybe to the drifters who only show up for their oppas, but I’m pretty sure all the ppl that are here pretty frequently would agree with me that the talking was liked.

      3 years ago
    • I loved the little short blurbs you did about the video. I can see not doing it for like the Best Hip-hop/Voice/Male/Female/etc, but for the video based categories I think it adds something special! ^^

  56. Loved the video and I can’t wait for the award show! I’m Nick, from the group of exchange students who went to your studios a few hours ago~ You made the year for us, none of us thought we would get to meet you! Thanks so much for talking your time out of video editing and talking to us, it meant the world to all of us.

    3 years ago
    • Oh! It was great meeting you! Sorry we couldn’t stay for longer. We were editing this video, and filming some more nomination videos as well :D

      Have fun in Everland tomorrow!

      • I will! It’s super fine that you were busy, we were all surprised that you even talked to us at all! We all freaked out after we left and we were all super happy that we got to meet you! Thanks~ and i will have fun in everland, thanks!

  57. So many nominees to choose from! Aaaarrrrggghhh! How will I decide and pick the right one! ANXIETY

    3 years ago
    • Just be like me and skip the anxiety by instead voting for half the nominees lol.
      Might as well help the chances of all the vids I like in the beginning stages.

      3 years ago
      • That’s what my plan is, vote for everyone that I’d be happy to see win. Oh and accept the fact that some that should get a not *coughHeoYoungSaengcough* probably will not due to….spam voting? Same as what happened to Shinwha on the MAMA’s, they got spammed out when they had a clear lead going in to the last 24 hours of voting. I figure the sooner I accept that this is how things work, the lower my stress level. ;-)

  63. ^_^ LOOK AT ALL THAT HIP HOP GOODNESS! Too bad Outsider didn’t make it, his comeback was the BOMB! But I love Verbal Jint, Sniper Sound (hell to the YEAH!) Jay Park, Swings, Tiger JK and Leesang’s songs! Whoo! Gonna be a tough vote. :D

    3 years ago
    • That’s a bummer. He’s my favorite solo speed rapper, besides E.Via. Who now that I think about it, also should have made the list. Especially since her comeback was so dramatic. Aegyo to baddass? Ultimate win!

      3 years ago
    • I think Crying Bird would have been nominated, but the only official version of the MV was removed from YT (probably something to do with the Sniper Sound thing).

      3 years ago
    • Which Outsider song? Bye U or Bitterly Crying Bird? Bitterly Crying Bird most likely would have been included but then it just suddenly disappeared from YT, the only thing about you can find on YT now is a teaser.

      I TRIED but I was the minority…

      3 years ago
      • Yeah I’m thinking Sniper Sound got ASSA to remove it or something. We tried reuploading it to use but it was instantly removed. It didn’t exist anymore on YT lol.

        And then GD wins every other award, like at the MAMAs? :P

        3 years ago
        • GD’s that cool, he could win even in the female categories :P

          3 years ago
        • He is pretty enough. And that’s not an insult, GD is my ultimate bias. I’m fairly certain that the main reason I found kpop was seeing a video in my sidebar and think ‘OMG, so much pretty!’
