How To Dance Kpop Is Now the 2012 EYKAs!

December 4, 2012

It’s that time of year again! Time for our year end Kpop Recap. We’ve been doing this every year since 2008 with our “How To Dance Kpop Style” videos. We used to chose our personal favourite songs of the year, but last year we opened it up to public voting, and it resulted in Big Bang’s “Tonight” winning Dance of the Year, for a video that didn’t have a dance. Lame! So, this year, we decided to change things up a bit so that we can explore different categories rather than just focusing on dancing only. Think of the 2012 EatYourKimchi Awards (2012 EYKAs) like a giant Kpop Music Monday! It won’t just be a boring listing of winners, we’ll joke around as we usually do WHILE wearing fancy evening wear and giving out awards! Ooohhh so classy!

We’d still like to give you the chance to voice your opinions, so each category will have 10 choices that you can vote on. The winner of each category will go onto the final 2012 EYK Awards ceremony.

How to vote!

Head on over to the 2012 Eat Your Kimchi Awards page and pick the best videos from the many different categories. You’ll notice that you can only vote on three categories for now. That’s because we’re going to release the nominees for different categories over the span of a week, just to keep it fresh, instead of overloading you with too much to vote for at once. Here’s the order we’ll be releasing the nominees. Check back on this page from time to time as we’ll be uploading new videos for each category.

Day 1

Vote for the Best Dance of 2012

Vote for the Nastiest Dance of 2012

Vote for the Best Potential KMM of 2012

Day 2

Vote for the Best Solo Performance of 2012

Vote for the Best Rookie Group of 2012

Day 3

Vote for the Best Artsy Fartsy Music Video of 2012

Vote for the Most Bizarre Video of 2012

Vote for the Best Plot of 2012

Day 4

Vote for the Best Aegyo of 2012

Vote for the Best Outfits of 2012

Vote for Best Spudgy Look-a-like

Day 5

Vote for Best Use of Mr.Brohoho’s Shop in 2012

Vote for Best Gun Usage of 2012

Vote for the Best Engrish of 2012

Day 6

Vote for the Best Female Group of 2012


Best Male Group

Day 7
Best Overall Video

Let us know what you think of the categories in the comment section below! This has been a really really long work in progress, we’ve been thinking about since last year’s Big Bang failure. (You know I love Big Bang, but they didn’t deserve best dance…hahahaha). Each category was very carefully thought out to make sure one band didn’t overlap into too many categories. We wouldn’t want one band taking four categories with the same song, that would be super lame. Also, for those of you who want us to screw the votes and just do what we want to do, don’t worry! We’re planning on talking about our own personal faves of the year as well, but who knows, perhaps our favs will overlap with the winners! We’ll just have to wait and see.

Lastly, thanks to all the Epik Nasties who helped out in the selection process. While we were away, they helped out so so much by carefully voting and debating about who should be in the top 10 categories. We’d be ripping out our hair now if it wasn’t for them.

  2. Wait Wait! Why isn’t Miss A’s Touch in the Best Potential KMM? I thought that was quiet a nice song to be reviewed, but didn’t won because that song came out in the same time with BIGBANG’s 3 epic song Blue, Bad Boy and Fantastic Baby. :(

  4. I love this idea! I can’t wait to see Simon and Martina on award night in their spiffy evening wear! :D And I get one more chance to vote my heart out for Orange Caramel and Hyuna and others! It’s like a week filled with second chances! ;_; Also, with the revamped website and these new EYK Awards, I can’t wait to see what content you will have to share with us once you have the studio! EYK and Grandpa FIGHTING!!

  11. I’m so looking forward toward the EYK Awards! Though, I feel like Nell – Before the Day should be a nominee for best potentional KMM. You could’ve put your academic degree to serious use if you had reviewed that song.

  12. “The Nastiest Dance” is a titan’s battle! So so NASTYYYY!!! I love it all the categories!

  15. Wow, this is truly an amazing idea ! I feel like this is just what we needed for the end of the year, and to voice out what we think about k-pop in a cool way ! Love you guys, you are genius !! There are so many categories, stuff to think about and to talk about to chose, awww what should I do ?? This is just as cool as the EMA’s !!! =D

  19. OMG SIMON AND MARTINA!!!!!

    First of all let me say that I’m wayyyyyy more excited for this than the MAMA Awards.

    Second, I’m shocked there’s no Best Indie Music Video.(I literally JUST noticed that).

  20. Steampunky Owl and Moustachioed Kitty on you wall are mesmerizing. Where did you get them? I NEED TO KNOW.

    EYK Awards? YESSSSSSSSSS. Just in time to distract me from doing the super-important presentation for my bachelor’s degree. YAY!

  23. yeah.. the “Best Dance” last year.. -_- .. I love BB but.. woah! .. When I saw “How To Dance Kpop Style” and realized that Big Bang’s Tonight was the 1st place, I was like “wait, wuhhtt??” .. because I was the MV before and NEVER saw a dance there.. I had to rewatch it then but still, didn’t noticed any particular dance step.. I love you Big Bang!! <3

    I hope everyone's gonna vote wisely.. and not that it's because it's your bias group that you should vote for them .. ^^

  27. You guys are awesome! I can’t wait!!
    I’m anticipating the nominees for best plot… I hope that the last video of K.Will, “Please don’t…” is nominated. xD

    • Yes, K.Will! Totally deserved his own Kpop Music Monday for that song, shame more people didn’t vote for it!

      4 years ago
    • “Please don’t..” Best Plot nominee! Thank U! You’re totally right, that MV is just amazing and the song too! =)

  30. You should make EYKA’s statuette and send them to winners :D :D

  31. So many good videos to choose from! Its going to be tough to vote~

    Will the videos change order based on the number of points (like the Kpop charts)? or are they locked in that position?

    4 years ago
  32. I hope you guys will also continue making the How to Kpop Style videos every year. Definitely one of the best EYK videos of each year

    4 years ago
  33. Also I am glad you guys are doing it this way, I was so disappointed in the people for voting for Big Bang in best dance. It shows that people don’t think, they just want.

  34. Yay I love this :’D And I love that Super Junior isn’t in every category so I can vote for all of my favourite groups and not only SJ hehe~ (and so I can vote less biased XD)

  35. You guys are such great content providers. Can wait to see what you will do when you get your studio.

    4 years ago
    • Why thank you! We just had a meeting today with our studio designer to get the ball rolling on gutting the space and making it right to match the EYK vibe of happy happy joy joy. SO EXCITED and we have footage to show you guise this week!!!! SQUEEE!!!! :D

  36. does the winner of the potential KMM award get reviewed? that would be an awesome extra!

    4 years ago
    • They replied to one person on Youtube saying, “Yup, the 2012 EYK Awards are going to be like a giant Music Monday.” So, that would be a yes. :D

      4 years ago
      • Well wait: it’s not that the best potential KMM gets its own review. The whole show is like a giant Music Monday, so to speak, rather than 17 music mondays for the 17 categories. THAT’D BE INSANE YO!

  37. THIS LOOKS AWESOME^^^ I keep on wanting actually interesting awards like most bizarre video and I just cannot wait for BEST ENGRISH, me loves me some engriishhh^^^ thank you guys so much!!! I too was a little bit annoyed (that is super super angry) that bigbang won best dance because yeah the song was fantastic but it just wasn’t fair for the other groups or really showed kpop fans ability to not be biased and actually pick a group who they sincerely thought was the best – which I know that we all have!!! So I’m super excited and I think this could be a revolution of sorts…maybe???
    Anyways, I’m excited^^

  38. This is brilliant! I am sitting with adequate amounts of anticipation and with SUPER EXCITEMENT. ^_^

  39. Oh. In the future, since I can see you guys doing this more often, I can see you guys should make an award for “Most Fun/Best to Interview”. I’m nt sure if that should be up for voting, since you were the ones to do the interviewing and we merely watched.

  40. LOVE THIS!! It’s really a great idea. You guys just keep getting more awesome (if that’s even possible)!
