Hi guise!

Allow us to present to you our second annual Eatyourkimchi Awards, which honours the best of Kpop for 2013, and whose winners are determined solely by you, the audience. We know award shows oftentimes are vague in how they select their winners, but, with us, you can see the results as the votes pour in. We, then, take the list of winners, and do our best to talk about their achievements as awkwardly as possible. Great success! The voting results were hidden for a while after the voting closed, but you can check them now to see all of the nominees and all of the categories. Woot!

We’ve divided up the video into two parts, because the whole thing was almost 20 minutes long. 20 Freaking Minutes! That’s too long for one person to sit through on this thing called the internets, so we cut it in half. We put it all in a playlist, which you should be able to watch above. If not, you can at least see part 1 up there. Here’s part 2:


Very big thanks to Eric Nam, Brad, Geeks, N.O.M., Vixx, and Boyfriend. They were all awesome, and had a great sense of humour about them. This is the kind of stuff we’d love to do with Kpop. We want to be silly with the bands, we want to play around and do funny stuff. Hopefully next year we could keep on doing stuff like this, and run after boy bands telling them we want to lick their butts.

Let us know what you think! I know that online voting is a double edged sword. It’s good that you can determine the winner of the awards clearly, while other award shows “factor” in your participation in some obscure unclear way, but it also means that a fanswarm can heavily sway the votes, as we saw with the first time we opened our KpopCharts system to determine the winners of How to Dance Kpop Style 2011, in which Big Bang won dance of the year for a video…that didn’t have a dance.

With these awards, though, it seems like people’s choices were pretty fair, and though we might have voted for different winners here and there, I don’t think the results are really arguable as terribly unfair. Let us know if you feel differently. I definitely would have voted N.O.M.’s “A Guys” as Nastiest video of the year, IMO.

But, on a more serious note: the video that made us laugh the most out of this whole event was the Bloopers. HA! We had some small mental meltdowns. Why? Because that day that we were filming, when we had to get everything recorded before we went to Canada, we had two urgent unavoidable meetings scheduled, out of the blue, on that day. Each of them taking up two hours. That’s four hours of daylight lost! So we were a bit woozy at the end, as you might have seen with the skating scene. But we managed to finish filming before the sun rose, and then scuttled back home to get packing. But not without getting a load of great bloopers, which we hope you’ll like as much as we do:


On that note, if you liked these videos and haven’t subscribed to our channel yet, make sure you do so by clicking on this button here. Have a Merry Christmas, everyone!

  1. I’ve probably watched this five times now, Eric and Brad were hilarious but Soozee SLAYED me. After that I was just done, and then the bloopers happened.
    But I’ve also come to the discussion with other motives…
    My friend just yesterday got me SHINee socks shipped all the way from SK as a late Christmas gift, and it came with a card full of some wonderful Engrish, and I’d thought I’d share with the Nasty community.
    “I really appreciated for buying from us. I hope you don’t mind that please leave positive feedback for me. Please understand this is Global shipment. We are far from away. All DSR 5.0 will be highly appreciated. (The webaddress) you can buy more variety and cheaper.”
    I’m calling it a three for one deal, kpop socks, Korean postage and Engrish all in one package. Favorite Christmas gift this year, by far hahaha.

  2. Thanks guys. This was really funny. My bf dumped me on Christmas and I’ve just been feeling like a shitty wreck, and this made me laugh out loud and forget how miserable I was for a few minutes…

    Also, it’s really cool how many artists you got to participate in this! Congrats!

  3. I hope u one day get’s to intewiev JYJ! <3

  4. Oh dear, not only do I think I recognize that gray wig from some cosplay sites but I’m pretty sure I know which characters it’s been styled for too. XD

  5. When I saw the Doom Dada teaser with the lookalike Jack Lint baby mask, I was so stoked ’cause Brazil is my favourite movie EVAR. I was on a BB fansite and some posts were saying it was a reference to a weirdo-lookin’ baby from some animé, but given all the other movie references, I think it makes more sense that it’s a nod to Brazil.
    The 2013 EYKA’s were awesome! Thank you!

  6. The only one winner I disagree with is the Nasty MV winner. I agree. NOM totally shoulda won. That video made me feel REALLY nasty after watching it. While watching these awards I was having flashbacks too. *shudders*

  7. soooozeeee has the best job EVAR!! :D

  8. This is why I love you guise and the EYKAs!
    I forgot how contagious Simon’s laugh is xD I had tears in my eyes just from watching and hearing him laugh in the bloopers!
    And let me thank all the Bestfriends around the world for voting my all time favourite group to the top, cause I missed the voting period. It’s so cool: last year K.Will won a category and this year Boyfriend. Starship Entertainment’s stable presence at this prestigious Award Show – I’m so happy :)

  9. *on this website.

    Trust me, some bands have very active fans and fandoms who do not like EYK and made active choices not to vote for the EYKA’s which were thought to be very irrelevant and pointless.

  10. HAHAHAHA CRYING from laughter :D :D SO funny and happy!! The bloopers, MY GOOD!!! Poor Eric, but so funny Brad!

  11. The transitions between each award category were great!

    • :D Thank YOU for taking the time with these kinds of details! Is this Martina present? Oh and have you guys though of having a general discussion area where people can talk about topics that are not specific to a post but still relevant to eatyourkimchi and also be able to leave suggestions for video segments and other things?

  12. If anything, it’s actually “T.O.P loves art. I love art. Therefore, I am T.O.P.”

  13. Christmas Eve = made courtesy of EYK. Big shout out and thanks to all of the special guests!

  14. This was fabulous from start to finish! I haven’t laughed this hard at your videos in a while… The guest appearances were awesome, and there were so many of them too!! I’m happy about these winners, even though they weren’t all the same who I voted for ^_^

    The TOP video breakdown was awesome btw, I had no idea it had so many references o_O

  15. …and I who was thinking that the baby in “Doom dada” was the one from “Spirited Away”…Thank you for the super fast-yet-super-interesting review Martina! Merry Christmas from Italy! ;-)

  16. Great! LOVED this :D You were so funny.
    The apperance from the idols made it even more amazing <3

  17. OMG Simon I literally laughed so hard when Fangurilla said “let me lick your butts”, that I thought my head was gonna explode!!!!

  18. omg Brad’s impression of Eric :’) I kno dat feel bro hashtag shawtie4lyf!

  19. Great EYKA this year guys!!! I laughed so much!! OMG ERIC NAM AND BUSKER BUSKER!! Extreme lols guys!!! GREAT JOB!!

  20. Such a great Christmas gift! Love this video so much!

  21. I heard the little laugh of Martina during the Fangurilla scene with NOM. Really funny, it must have been so hard no to laugh during this

  22. This was probably the best eyk video I’ve seen! You guys are hilarious and your power to actually get those groups and people to appear really is amazing! I felt bad that I didn’t end up voting but…to be honest…u couldn’t! They were so many great nominees even in categories where I didn’t KNOW the nominees that I had no idea which way to vote so i just didn’t and figured I’d see what everyone else choose. Look. I was happiest to see the fx won girl group of the year! They deserve so much morethan they are getting and thus asked the unconditional support of the international fans. I was hoping Amber would speak but after your last battle with SmE I get not wanting to touch their hr with a ten foot pole.

    Thanks for all the hard work! Hope you guys are staying warm and safe in your house! Hope the power comes back soon

  23. NOM <3 they should have won by far xDDD loved the SKIT omg hahahahhahahah Zoooseeeeeeeee~ xD enjoyed herself xD

  24. The N.O.M. guys were the best!!! i loved every minute of it and Suzy’s raction killed me and in the bloopers :DD She wished they could stay there forever :DDDDD

  25. I think that most of people didn’t have time to check out all contestants and mv’s (I know I didn’t.. I watched most but didn’t have time for all of them) and that’s why people just choose their favorites without checking who really was best in the category.

    Maybe best and most easiest resolution for this would be decreasing amount of nominations per category or then making less categories. I enjoyed watching playlists of all categories but there was just too many at least for me since I needed to study for my exams and make essays a lot in that time as well ^^;

  26. you don’t even know how much this made me laugh :) I am so happy that some of my favourites won :) keep up the good work guys and merry Christmas. (I am hoping there is more behind the scenes footage ;))

  27. This was awesome, Thanks for this early Christmas present!
    Can’t pinpoint my favorite Moment just to much gloriousness!

    On a side note: You should definitely interview N. O. M.- I’m courious about their take on the Nastiness. :)

    Merry Christmas& Happy New Year Everybody

  28. Oh my gosh… Guise, suck an epic eyka awards video!! I jst, can’t , no… I’m so overwhelmed! You are really amazing. And YOU Soozee, ooo, you so naaasty <3

  34. the EYKA were amazing! :D Even better than I could have imagined! You def made me start Christmas with a laugh and fear of chocking! :P
    Brad and Eric were so funny that tears were swelling up in my eyes (both in the actual video and the bloopers)!
    Also very surprised NOM didn’t win, but so glad you features them it was hilarious !

  35. Last year they had a student artist make the Golden Spudgy, but there’s only one, so S&M keep it. XD

  36. This is perfect! Just perfect! Had a really crappy day today and this turned it right around!
    ERIC NAM!!!! BRAD!!! OMG NOM!!!!!!! AND GEEEEEKKK!!!!!!! I will now survive Christmas for sure!

  37. I have a tall white male friend thats 6 ft something. I’m so telling him that I have a degree in tall white man counsel now.

  38. It’s 1:00 in the morning and I laughed so much that my mom wakes up and comes into my room and it has to be the part when NOM are there.

  39. The glorious EYKAs! I loved every minute of it! From the guest appearances (Brad’s impression of Eric xD) to Martina’s extremely enlightening review of Doom Dada (I was hoping for a KMM but I’ll take this ^^) and SooZee’s skit with NOM! It was hard not too laugh. Best Christmas gift EVER!
