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. For those of you who want to complain about the EYKAs in style, let me give you a form where you can just copy and paste and insert the words you need into your own post.

    form 1 – not nominated.

    Why wasn’t <name of bias> nominated for the <category> category! <bias name’s song> is a far better candidate then the other 10 that you chose for the <category>.It doesn’t matter that <name of bias> was nominated for <number of categories>, <name of bias> deserves to win <category> and all the others you created.

    form 2 – not winning.

    I’m a <name of fan group>, but I’m not being biased. <name of bias> should be winning the <name of category>. Why don’t the rest of you see <reason #1> and <reason #2> make this video better than the others in the category. <name of bias> doesn’t deserve to be <current standing>.

    form 3 – hen house

    <name of female group/solo artist> should be getting more votes! <name of fan group> only knows how to vote for <name of fan group’s bias> and can’t see <name of female group/solo artist>’s talent is better than <name of fan group’s bias>.

    I personally will be using form 3 ad nauseum from here on out..;)

  3. well i know its on B.A.P and Exo’s wiki pages. I honestly didn’t check the others, mianhaeyo!

  4. Hmm, let me see.

    Psy has a good dance, Roh Ji Hoon has a nasty dance, Nu’est should’ve won KMM, Junsu is a good solo artist, BAP is a good rookie, Hot Potato had an artsy-fartsy video, Miryo’s video was bizarre, UV had a good plot, Orange Caramel had good aegyo, Epik High had good costumes, Big Bang’s GD and TOP look like Spudgy, T-ara used Mr. Brohoho’s brick room, MBLAQ used a few guns in their video, Super Junior had good Engrish, T-ara is a good female group, both Epik High and Big Bang are good male groups, and Sunny Hill had a good video.

    Yea I approve of your choices :p

  5. Hahaha I don’t know about the other Epik Nasties, but that was what I was thinking when I saw it nominated.

    Oh the irony xD

    • hahaha pretty sure we never claimed not to be a little trollish, but if that’s what everyone is the majority are voting for who are we to deny them! xD Though I would prefer a girl group to win Aeygo…

      • What? Us trollish? Naw, we wouldn’t do anything trollish *cough* Nothing like put Ku Hye Sun in aegyo or Dancing King in Engrish just to see WTF reactions *cough*

        4 years ago
        • hahaha Dancing King has fabulous Engrish! I’ve been converted now lol. I hope more people are watching that video now XD
          I’m glad we had a couple of troll nominations, it’s not like any of them didn’t deserve to be nominated, but it means that the EYKAs have an EYK/Epik Nasty feel to it. Keeps things interesting :D

  6. [Rant Alert]

    EYKA Pet Peeve #1: “I’m not biased, but So-And-So DESERVES to win the most”

    Every. Single. Nominee. “DESERVES” to win.

    It’s ok to be biased, I won’t judge you. Go ahead and be biased, that’s what polls are for, no?

    We knew people would end up voting for their favourite groups anyway, which is why we tried to choose the nominees as objectively as possible. That way, whoever wins the category will still be a suitable candidate (or, even if it’s the least suitable candidate out of the 10, at least it’s better than BB winning Best Dance with a dance-less video lol)

    It just upsets me when people claim that they’re not biased, and that their group must be in first place purely because it deserves to win the most, over all the other nominees.

    Does it deserve to win? Yes. Does it deserve it more than everyone else? No.

    EYKA Pet Peeve #2: Hardly anyone checks out all the nominees before they vote.

    Well, fair enough, there’s 170 nominations after all. Checking out all the videos released this year and choosing from them objectively was the job of the nomination team (the Epik Nasties + S&M), and voters have all the right to just vote for the groups/videos they’re already familiar with.

    However, since a lot of effort was put into choosing these nominees, it would be really nice if people could go back and watch all the other videos that they haven’t seen, after they make their initial votes. Show some support to the less popular groups? Like this person did: http://saobservations.com/2012/12/06/most-artistically-creative-kpop-music-video-of-2012/

    In fact, to make it easier for you guys, here’s ALL 17 Categories in PLAYLIST MODE!!!
    http://www.youtube.com/user/TheEpikNasties

    EYKA Pet Peeve #3: All the Y U NO include So-And-So complaints

    We’ve all seen them. I actually don’t mind these too much, because although most of them were left out of the top 10 with strong reasoning, we did actually miss some good candidates. For example, Myname’s Hello and Goodbye would have been a pretty good Gun Usage candidate.

    What does annoy me though, is when people complain about:
    – Not including a group in a particular category when it already has nominations in a few other categories. Some groups weren’t nominated at all, so just be grateful yo!! the next person who asks why fantastic baby isn’t in best dance will be shot

    – Not including a video from 2011, or way before that. Troublemaker is from 2011. Cleansing Cream is from 2011. Balloons is from 2006. It’s called EYK Awards 2012 for a reason!

    EYKA Pet Peeve #4: Mods who make rants about their pet peeves

    Mods should just shut up and do their jobs, seriously. Why be a wet blanket and spoil everybody’s fun?

    – Most fans just enjoy voting for and promoting their biases, and may not have time to go through all 170 nominees, so might as well let them enjoy themselves.

    – All complaints about videos and groups that weren’t included should be taken with a grain of salt and given extra consideration next year. After all no list is perfect, and we should be open to this valuable input.

    – A large proportion of Nasties actually leave comments appreciating the current nominations, check out as many unknown nominees as they can, and try their best to leave objective votes and input. We should appreciate them and focus our thoughts on them instead of the less pleasant voters. For example, this person is my favourite Nasty right now: http://saobservations.com/2012/12/08/may-the-best-aegyo-win/

    Anyway, I just wanted to get that off my chest. Overall, I’m really REALLY happy with how the awards are going, and that people are discovering new videos, reminding themselves of old favourites, and just having fun!! *~(^o^)/~*

    • It was in the last draft for Artsy Fartsy, but it kinda stuck out like a sore thumb with all its CGI, so we kicked it out.

      COME AT ME BRAH

      4 years ago
    • Bwahahahahaahaha! I see that my penchant for shooting has rubbed off on you!

      I have to say that these EYKAs are going much better than I expected. I am so proud of all the Nasties, but those ones who say I know so-and-so are probably not going to win but I’m just glad they were nominated and those that take the time to at least check out the people that they haven’t heard of (even if they still end up voting for their bias) hold a special spot in my heart.

      No matter who wins in the different categories, I’ll be happy because they all deserve it! Except BAP in aegyo! Not that they don’t deserve it, but more that I refuse to see them as aegyo since I don’t really like aegyo. I’m gonna always see them as bad a$$ warriors! Forever and ever! *pouts*

      4 years ago
      • yeah but you have always been more concerned with the who the winner should be then us. I’m not even voting half the time cause I’m happy with whoever wins because all the nominees totally fit in that category.

        • I’ve voted twice so far. LOL I think even my dad has voted more than me xD (he voted Epik High for Best Male, Sistar for Best Aegyo, and KJK for Brohoho)

        • I voted when each category was announced and maybe a couple of times after that. Mostly for the underdogs though.

          4 years ago
      • Heh, there’s a lot of things that I wish we could change for example MORE FEMALE WINNERS but nothing we can do about it now.

        So might as well accept it so it won’t ruin our mood too much, this is supposed to be enjoyable after all :)

        If it makes you feel better, S&M clearly said sooo many times that your favourite video was also their favourite song/video of the year (OC’s Lipstick :D)

        4 years ago
      • Heh. At first I was like ‘Why the heck is BAP winning Aegyo’ but now I just find it really funny.

        Think of what the award ceremonies will be like. “Introducing BAP, winner of Best Rookie and Best Aegyo!!”

        And from hereon BAP shall be known as ‘That really Aegyo rookie group’ BWAHAHAHAHA xD

        4 years ago
        • S&M killed me when they said it was the most bipolar transformation. It’s so disturbing how well BAP do aegyo. It’s sickening it deserved a vote from me.

          I have voting philosophy. For some categories I can’t help but give a vote for my bias, but I give a vote and shares to the videos I think should win. Some are one in the same. Some I know my bias’s isn’t the best in the category and don’t even give them a vote.

          4 years ago
        • I almost feel as if we should have had a “Most Fierce and Bad A$$ Warrior” category and B1A4 should be winning it. It feels like the world has all gone topsy turvey!

          4 years ago
        • I think the Babys decided to troll all of us hard. Actually, I’m finding it a bit amusing too. *pouts* I’m still gonna think of them as puffy bunny warriors *stomps foot*. :D

  7. …………..whoops *looks away*

    lol the reason that wasn’t nominated was because it wasn’t on the Kpop Charts because it was an very obvious commerical. We only chose nominees from the 350 videos on the Kpop Charts this year :)

  8. Yes!! Concentrate on the less popular ones!! It’s more interesting that way xD

    Now, read this, and then vote for Epik High’s Don’t Hate Me!! MWHAHAHAHA xD

  13. I think I just thought of an awesome category that S&M could do… BEST LINE EVAR award (whether the line be english, korean, or spanish). Lines such as Soy un dorito, Don’t take it in the butt, and I lost my pants…I think this could be and awesome category.

    4 years ago
  14. Hahaha I think they might be from your favourite website Jamie ;)

  15. Question: At the beginning of the Engrish video you say it isn’t the Engrish that stems from pronunciation but from fail lyric writing skills. Based off of that, I don’t quite get the inclusion of Block B’s Nanrina…at least with the line used there. Simon says in this video, “I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know but I’m hard.” But the actual lyrics are, “I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know but I’m hot, hot. (so hot)”….And that line makes perfect sense to me.
    So in this case you are using pronunciation. Not sure if this happens in any of the other nominees as well because I don’t know them all.

    4 years ago
    • As you said, “It’s because of their pronunciation” and that is why I’m confused. At the beginning of the video listing the nominees, Simon says they aren’t talking about pronunciation, but lyrics that are completely out of the blue, ‘what is this person trying to say to me’ lyrics. That line in Nanrina makes sense, it isn’t confusing, the meaning is understood. The only issue with it is Ukwon saying ‘hot’ like ‘hawt’, which comes off sounding like ‘hard’. And even then the line makes sense…it becomes quite a bit more perverted, yes, but it still makes sense.
      More or less my confusion lies in the fact that they say they aren’t basing their choices on pronunciation and yet for this one, and Boyfriend and Teen Top as well based on other comments, the Engrish is stemming from the pronunciation.

  20. hehehehe. Excellent question!

  21. Engrish…so awesome. Loved how Simon played it. Said them with a straight face and then on some of the worst offenders, bit his lip. Loved every one of them, especially the “I am hard” line followed by “You know what I mean.” Priceless Engrish if you know what I mean.

    You left out the best part of Baek Seung Heon’s Engrish Line: “oh my girl, like a my wife, girl, LET”S HAVE A BABY.” Grammatically correct, but who would ever say that to a girlfriend?

    I noticed that not a single girl group made the list.

    Little diappointed Hyuna’s Ice Cream wasn’t nominated for Engrish as she will always be my queen of Engrish when I include her or 4Minute. But she was already nominated for 2 other categories for her classically bad Ice Cream video.

    4 years ago
    • Also hers would have been the only written Engrish so we cut it.

  26. Lol. The one that shows the most amount of Brohoho’s room? :p

    My dad said if it’s best usage of the room, then he thinks KJK utilised it very well, with the circular camera work.

    Or you could just vote for your favourite video out of the 10 :p

    We put in that category as a bit of a joke (as was with most categories) just to make a point that there was over 10 videos filmed in exactly the same room this year xD

          Actually I remember when I first started to notice the ‘brick room’ conspiracy. I think that Simon is right and people are literally lined up outside this building waiting to go in. It would a perfect spot for fangirls to stake out for Kpop stars, only if they knew where it was.

  32. Is there a Nasty that has that list of all the music videos that use that brick room?
    I feel like sitting down with a bucket of popcorn and watching them.

    4 years ago
  33. I’m a little bit late to the party… but if anyone is still having trouble understanding Seungri Time for Kisses in the Aeygo video, here is a translation of the video :)

    Aeygo is a term to describe where the girls are very sweet, innocent and endearingly cute, like me.
    It usually involves them starting their sentences with “Oppa” and it involves them talking about themselves in 3rd person.
    Like, for example, “Oppa, Seungri time for kisses want ice cream, waegeurae”. See how cute that was.
    And the nominees for Best Aegyo of the year are:
    Goo Hara – Secret Love
    Oh my god, that boy is so dreamy and Goo Hara has the best Aegyo reaction to his cuteness. Which is even more effective because she’s such a cutey herself. I wish I was a pretty as her.
    Sistar – Loving U
    Even though the girls are really sexy in Alone, you can see the genuine cute excitement when they frolic around on the beach. They’re so cute! Ahhrrrr
    Orange Caramel – Lipstick
    This nominee for the Best Aegyo is also the fakest Aeygo, as they seem to be all cute and innocent but then turn out to be stone cold ping pong killers. Still one of my favourite songs and videos of 2012.
    Ku Hye Sun – Marry Me
    This entire video is literally a close up of her head as she smiles and looks on the camera. Really, there’s nothing else. If you were to factor in the percentage of Aegyo time, into the winner of this award, she would definitely win, because its 100% her face, only her face.
    BAP – Stop It
    These boys are all about being powerful ruthless warriors, but now they’re cute? Biggest Aeygo turn around ever. This isn’t just male Aeygo, this is bi-polar.
    Tittaaays – Twinkle.
    Girls Generation are always making cute and know how to work the camera. Even if they are dancing around in lingerie. Be thankful that its cold right now, or I’d be announcing the nominees in the same attire. It wouldn’t be pretty.
    Hello Venus – Venus
    This video is chock full of pointing fingers at your cheeks, pouting, blinking, OK signs and everything that Aeygo girls need to pose for a picture.
    Big Star – I got ya
    If the Hello Venus video was set over snowboarding and Hello Venus were all boys, this would be the video. Lots of boys, looking at the camera and looking cute. Oh Boy
    IU & FIESTAR
    IU, Korea’s sweet heart is one of the cutest people in all of Korea. Ah ar, wait a second, the picture frame is a bit off, can you…
    Eunkyuk it. I mean, Unhook. Oh god, unhook not Eunkyuk.
    BILASA – Baby Goodnight.
    They conquer kitties and teenage girls hearts and since I’m clearly a teenage girl, my heart is totally conquered by these cutey boy. Oh my god.

    That’s it for the nominees for Best Aegyo of 2012, there are so many cutey cuties to choose from. Let us know who you thought was the best Aeygo by heading over to EatYourKimchi.com/Kpop-awards-2012.
    And vote there. I would clearly understand if you want to vote for me, because I am definitely the most Aeygo out of everyone. I’m going to go write another love letter to Seungri now. Maybe one day he’ll answer them. Dear Seungri,… Time for Kisses.

    • I was dissapointed at first too, but honestly they didn’t fit much anywhere, they didn’t have aegyo (thank goodness) or engrish. They had an amazing dance, but the ones on the list deserved to be there. As long as we work hard and win best Male Group.

      • thanks, i’m happy you guys nominated fairly. There isn’t a single band/group/solo that didn’t deserve to be in the category they were in. It must’ve been hard for u guys to not be bias.

    • Trust me, almost everyone here, S&M and the Epik Nasties included, LOVE UKiss very much. As a group, they’re great and lovable personalities. But when compared to Neverland or Tick Tack from last year, their MVs this year weren’t that outstanding.

      How about this: Think of which UKiss videos you would nominate for which category. Then, look at the current nominees for those categories, and think which one you think should be replaced with UKiss, based on objective relevance to the category alone. Throw away your bias. It’s a bit hard, no?

        Ah well. I suppose you’re allowed to be disappointed. And yes you’re allowed to like things more than others.

      • Shhhhh, let’s not ruin the smaller nasty community who love to watch and comment on the not so popular bands! ;)

        But you are correct. Dal Shabet would have never cracked the top 10 if S&M hadn’t brought it to the attention of all the nasties.

        4 years ago
        • Hahaha. We have hipster Nasties now. :-p.
          I like how these awards are giving some exposure to some of those videos which were not that popular and were stuck on the second or third page. Like the Epik Nasties sifted through and picked out some gems. It is heartening to see so many people actually sit and watch all these videos. Of course there will always be the big groups dominating, but just being exposed, especially in these nominee videos will help quite a few of the lesser known groups.
          That’s why I love the k indie segment. I get to learn about a wider range of Korean music, outside of Kpop that I would never get to see because it is not promoted outside if Korea.

  91. First off i think this is a really great idea and i love it! but i just wanted to rant about something really quick, i actually think next year if you do another awards show type thing, it would be really cool to have you guys (simon and martina) pick the winners! maybe we could choose the nominees but then ultimately you would pick the winners! Because not to hate on any group or any person but i feel like some of the awards are just people blindly picking their bias to win the category (kind of like how last year big bang won best dance..) when they really shouldn’t be winning in that specific category per se. Like in my opinion, for best potential KMM i think either lipstick or ice cream should win, not just because i am a huge fan of orange caramel and hyuna, but because simon and martina would be able to do so much with those two songs and videos and it would be hilarious! the top 5 spots are all really good songs (like the chaser, catch me and tried to walk) and i love those groups but they wouldn’t really be the BEST choice for a KMM you know? i don’t know, that’s just my opinion at least xD

    4 years ago
    • I’m pretty sure they’ve said about 5 times now that Orange Caramel – Lipstick was their favourite song and video of the year? xD

      4 years ago
    • 1. I think every nominee deserves to win in their category.

      2. Potential KMM is for the video that ‘Should have won, but didn’t, for whatever reason’. Some videos were included because, as you said, they would have made a hilarious KMM, but others, such as the top 5, were included because they were #1 on the kpop charts when S&M were either sick or overseas, and thus were robbed of a chance of getting reviewed. This is giving them a second chance :)

      4 years ago
      • OH okay i understand now, see i’m sorry i took it as “what video should’ve been reviewed that would have made a hilarious KMM” but i get it now :) and i also didn’t realize that the nasties were the ones who came up with the nominees! that’s so cool! i hope i didn’t offend you or anyone else!

      Myungsoo sent Sungjong a Happy Birthday tweet and MyungYeol shippers went crazy and bashed Sungjong, bashed MyungJong shippers, and sent tweets to Myungsoo asking him to not “cheat” on Sungyeol anymore…

  106. Standing ovation for the Epik Nasties. I saw those posts of yours debating about what should and shouldn’t be included while the couple were away(why, yes. Yes I did lurk ;)). Everyone there has all my respect; so much thought was put into this. :3
    Awesome idea Simon and Martina!

  115. Question, is voting for a certain category only open for one day? Or is it open all the way until December 20th? (real question: how much do I need to vote and spam twitter to make sure Sherlock is the #1 dance?)

    4 years ago
    • Unfortunately there’s not much spamming you can do ^^;
      Voting is once per 24 hours per IP address,
      Facebook is once EVER
      Google+ is once EVER
      Tweets are only counted once per 24 hours per account.

      I think all categories will be open until the 20th.

      Btw, I’m going to start a campaign to encourage people to watch the videos of ALL the nominees. Please vote for your bias if you want, but remember you can vote for more than one video!! Check out all the other great dances/videos of the year!! ^^b

      4 years ago
    • Voting is open all the way until December 20th.

      Voting only counts once per video per ip address every 24 hrs (so if you want to vote on multiple videos you can) and I’m pretty sure that twitter only counts once per account every 24 hrs also.

      4 years ago
      • HAHAHAHA that’s my job!! xD

        Btw I’ve been encouraging S&M to use the Epik Nasties’ playlists to encourage people to watch all the nominees. Where would be the best place to put the link, you think?

        4 years ago
        • I’m not sure if most people know that they can vote for more than one nominee in a category per day. I’ve been trying to reply to people who seem torn about picking only one per category, just to let them know that they can vote for multiple nominees. Could a line about that be added somewhere along with the link to our playlists?

          As for where to put the link, how about at the top of each category page put the link to the appropriate playlist. Also, you could put a link to the main playlist page at the top of the main EYK Awards page with all the categories listed below.

          (btw, are all our playlists completely updated? There were some last minute changes…)

        • pshh, you and Natz and cari will be busy not only with these but also regular KMM. The least I can do is try to answer a few questions here and there if I know the answer! LOL

          The playlists…hmmm I wonder if S&M could link to them in the nomination videos using those annotation thingys? or maybe right beside the link above the video in this blog post? Something like “VOTE FOR BEST DANCE 2012” then right beside it “SEE ALL BEST DANCE NOMINATIONS”?

          4 years ago
  116. Please don’t forget JoKwon’s I’m Da One. It belongs in at least one of these categories. I remember when this song came and you guys wanted to review it for all its potential. Please don’t forget this song.

    • Don’t forget there are 14 more categories to come. I’m sure we will see him pop up in at least one category. Which of the ones yet to come, do you think he should be nominated in?

  117. Would best plot be considered like best concept? also i was wondering for some more stuff can we suggest some like best “debut song” or “best rookie solo artist” “best crybaby video” (for that one like you did for the voting for Janus and Cry.)

    4 years ago
  118. The same as KMM, except no points for comments. You can vote once per day per IP address for as many nominees as you want in each category. Personally, I’m voting for multiple groups in each category. There are too many great candidates to pick just one. My brain would explode, lol.

  119. I’ve shown both my parents most of the videos up for the Nastiest Dance Award (my dad’s kind of a fan of SISTAR now, he actually heard the song before he saw the video…my bother was not aposed to Secret’s video either). The one video that i’ve seen that i refuse to show my father and brother was Hyuna’s Ice Cream…showed my mom cause we get a good laugh out of it…but something about showing the males in my family just felt wrong…which is strange cause we all watch True Blood together and i feel less weird.
    i still remember the first video that my brother stopped and watched when i had it up on the big screen…Rainbow’s ‘A’. He was walking by to go to his room got past the TV did a double take and then sat on the couch to watch the video.

    • Which category would you have nominated it in?

      4 years ago
      • Best Potential KMM. S&M really seemed like they wanted to review it when they talked about it a while back (for one of their Update playlists, I believe ^^) and I think it would’ve resulted in a fun/goofy review. ^^

        4 years ago
        • oh cool, I’m not that familiar with the song, so I didn’t know which category it would fit in. I’ll have to take another look at it if you think it would be a good KMM :)

          4 years ago
        • ^^ The song’s pretty standard I think, catchy as can be and good if you’re into upbeat, girly songs.
          And then there’s the MV, which is just full of bright colors and overexaggerated acting and whatnot. It’s fun. I think it could beat out a few of the songs on the list, but I mostly just mentioned it because I’m pretty sure Simon and Martina wanted a chance to review it when it came out. ^^;

          4 years ago
        • I just found/watched the Chart Update you were talking about and Simon really was interested in reviewing it. Its sad that it is added to the pile of videos that they wanted to review, but weren’t able to. I hope in the future they are able review more videos that they are interested in, not just the ones the fans vote in :)

    4 years ago
  124. This is just a suggestion for the future for the awards show but, it would be amazingly, awesomely cool if eat your kimchi could get a couple of video responses from some of the artists winning the EYKAS. It could be like U-Kiss finds out they won an award and they send a video back thanking the voters for winning and Eric or someone from the group could be like “What the heck is a EYKAS?” or something funny like that.

    But seriously this is a great idea can’t wait to vote and see who wins.

  125. So where’s the playlist of Nasty Dances? ;)

    J/K. I think that’d be too much Nasty in one place for most people to handle.

    4 years ago
  126. That’s what I said :p Because I agreed with you completely, I’ll explain my thought process in accepting the current award categories.

    Simon and Martina told me that boring categories such as Best Male and Best Female are necessary to make the awards seem more credible (instead of just random Nasty categories), and to draw people to vote.

    So, for us who like to vote objectively, we can leave the ‘boring’ categories to the passionate fangirls and fanboys, and focus on the smaller, narrower categories, no? :)

    As for the ‘legitimate categories’ that you mentioned…..do you realise how hard it would be to chooose the nominees for those T_T
    We’d have to look up the lyrics for 350 songs (and how do you define ‘best’ anyway), listen to the instrumentals and look up the producers for 350 songs, watch all the live performances of every single of the 350 videos released this year…..

    ._.

    lol btw, I love how you already guessed the winner for every category. I bet you’ll be surprised with the final outcome though. But tbh, I don’t mind if those nominees win. I would be happy with any of the candidates winning.

    Because,
    Shinee has a good dance
    Xia has a nasty dance
    TVXQ is a good potential KMM
    EXO is a good rookie group
    Ailee is a good solo performance
    (and the same goes for ALL the other nominees)

    What more could you ask for? :) ‘Best’ is subjective!

    4 years ago
    • I agree with both of you. I highly doubt my favorites will win (they rarely do for KMM). As for the dance category, my fav is the hulk dance from TVXQ, but I cannot argue that Shinee’s Sherlock isn’t an awesome dance as well.

      4 years ago
    • kk

      WOW, I didn’t know you reviewed all the material released to determine the nominees, this is serious business lol. Yes, I understand the business side of things, then perhaps next time have ONE production/composing category? And upon second look I’m starting to doubt my predictions too..I might have changed my mind on these two:
      Best Dance: BoA…or TVXQ…or Shinee….oh boy
      Potential KMM: Hyuna

    I feel like such a bitch saying this. I love you guys and have been watching your videos for 2 years now and I’ve seen you grow and become what you are. When I saw you guys meet your goal for the fundraiser so quickly I teared up too. I’m proud of what you guys have been able to do in bringing people together online. But I have to say that I really don’t like your new fans so much. The fanatical ones. It upsets me that you get so much hate. It upsets me to see you guys have to be defending yourselves all the time for ANYTHING you say that offends someone. I don’t think I can watch some of your videos anymore. I will probably still watch the indie stuff and the wanks. But I’m done with the kpop stuff. I’m losing my faith in humanity. Sorry guys :(

    4 years ago
    • Fandoms in general tend to create this type of fanaticism. It isn’t just Kpop, it is human nature. Just think of Kpop fandom as sort of like religion and each ‘fandom’ has their own particular faith / group that they follow. Not everyone in the fandom is fanatical, but some are, and there is really nothing you can do about them but ignore them.

      It does make me sad to see how S&M get so much hate, but they have taken on a role of making fun and entertainment out of something that some people have a sort of religious zealot like behavior about. And it is expected that some people will take things out of context, take things too seriously and get upset with them. I think that they have come to terms with the fact that not everyone will like them or what EYK represents.

      That said, as you realized, their Wanks and fap faps and indie videos are the ones that stir up the least controversy. I guess that is why they divided the site into Music and culture. If you stick to the culture side… Only coming out every once in a while for the k indie, I guess you will be fine. But I know that for the rest of this week at least they will be concentrating on the EYKA’s. you may not get much cultural updates or indie updates this week. We will see. It depends on how busy they are.

        • I didn’t think I’d seen that performance before, but as soon as I opened it and saw those snakeskin patterned pants of his, I remembered that I had seen it a few years ago. Yaoi fanservice to the max, lol. Gackt doesn’t need to be able to dance; he just oozes charisma. My friend and I actually dubbed his Vanilla MV dance “the octopus dance” because he flails his arms around so much.

          I love his voice too! My other favorite singer in the more mainstream Japanese music scene is Hyde from L’Arc-en-ciel. Have you heard any of their stuff? One of my favorite ballads by them is 抒情詩. L’Arc was the first Asian group I ever got into. I guess you could say that Hyde was my Jrock 初の恋.

But, I do feel like people would more or less like a vote in part of this so it would be really cool if there was like a day for fan favorites of maybe one award being the “Fan Favorite of the Year,” etc. Maybe not this year but in the year to come it would be a cool way to include the fans in because we all know how k-pop fans get with their idols.

    4 years ago
    • We considered doing that, but there were just too many problems. We considered having it open to fan submission for the nominees, but isn’t that just the same as the Kpop Charts? What’s to stop people from nominating non-2012 videos or non-kpop videos? Otherwise we’d have to nominate ALL the MVs of the year, to be fair – so that’d be over 350 videos.

      But aren’t these current categories already reflecting fan favourites? The nominees were chosen so that on an objective level, EVERY. SINGLE. NOMINEE. deserves the award – and now it just comes down to fangirl/fanboy bias personal preference ^^b

      4 years ago
      • Maybe just the 10 videos that received the most votes for KMM in 2012, regardless of whether they made it or not~~ but yeah, there’s already a tonne of categories hahaha I’m sure us Nasties could think of an infinite number of them XDD Think the choices and nominees are very good and well thought out this year though~~ ^^

  167. Love this. So much better then last year. You guys are right. As much as i love big bang, they are not know for the dancing. This way you get to see the artist or idol group that are not as popular as some other idols.

  170. This sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun, this year and in coming years. I love the idea =D The only trouble is, Who to vote for!? Difficult choices haha.

    • Vote for them all if you want! :) Voting is just like KMM: you can vote once per day per IP address for as many nominees in each category as you want.

  171. I’ve edited it, it’s just waiting to be published along with 5 other MVs ^^;;

  172. Ah well. We try to encourage people to be respectful of each other here at EYK, so hopefully things won’t get out of control.

    My personal stance on these EYK Awards are:
    – The top 10 nominees for each category were carefully and systematically selected from over 350 candidates (that’s the amount of Kpop MVs released in 2012)
    – I feel that every video equally deserves the award, on a purely objective level. They were selected over 340 other videos. Thus, now it just comes down to personal preference.
    – Therefore, I don’t mind if people go totally biased, because no matter who wins, they’ll still be a good representative of the category :p

    The most important thing is for everyone to have fun ^^b

  173. LOOOOOVE IT!!! LO AMO!!!

  176. Ooooh so that’s what all these Epik Nasties’ playlists were for… I love this idea! I have a tendency to create the “best of” lists and I already thought of my fav. dance and best potential KMM lists before :) And now I have the chance to vote in so many categories, awesome!!! I’ll try not to be too biased, but I’m so torn between the nominees already. Thanks for not posting all the categories at once, my brain could explode if you did so.

    4 years ago
    • Hahaha no1 was supposed to know about those playlists! >_<

      But we threw biases out the window while nominating so I'm totally going w/ my biases in voting! lol

      4 years ago
      • I didn’t suspect anything because I just checked 1 or 2 of them and didn’t even notice that they consist only of 2012 videos ;) I just thought “wow, they really like creating playlists…”

  177. Can there be a “What the Heck Just Happened” award?
    Because there are so many videos that just leave you scratching your head in puzzlement and only S&M know what REALLY happens.

  179. These categories are awesome! Engrish, nasty dance, brohoho… I wasn’t expecting anything less from you! :-) I love these awards already!

    BUT

    Let me quote YOURSELF to you guise, about last year’s HTDK:

    A Nasty asked: “Do i have to vote for the BEST MV or the HOTTEST MV? I don’t really understand .. please answer ~”

    And you guise answered: “For your favourite kpop video of the year, so it could be best dance or video in general!”

    If you don’t believe me, here is the link: http://www.eatyourkimchi.com/vote-for-how-to-dance-kpop-2011/#comment-383997677

    My only point is, I find it a bit cheeky from you to imply that Big Bang won last year because of stupid fangirls voting like crazy for their oppas, while at no point you set the rules clearly. Even on the voting page, the word “dance” didn’t even appear. Actually, people were supposed to vote for a good video, whatever it was, and they did. That’s why Big Bang won and deserved to win.

    But I’m really glad you solve this issue this year. Now it couldn’t be clearer, it’s not mixing with KMM voting either, it’s all good.

    And EVERYBODY VOTES FOR EPIK HIGH’S DON’T HATE ME FOR THE BEST POTENTIAL KMM wait… Where is it? Oh, nevermind!

    Sincerely, a devoted Nasty.

  181. 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. :(

  202. 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 .. ^^

      • 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!

  216. 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???

  218. 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.
