What’s up, 2NE1? Your songs are pretty sad as of late. Whatever happened to the bombastic fantastic elastic 2NE1 we originally knew and grew to love? One of our first Kpop Music Mondays we ever reviewed was 2NE1’s “Can’t Nobody,” and we thought that the song was so fun and funky and we wanted to dance and life was beautiful and everything was happy and great…and then we got the video for “It Hurts.” Oh. Kinda sad. And then we got Park Bom’s “Don’t Cry,” which was miserable. And now we get 2NE1’s “Lonely” which is also sad. Why, 2NE1? WHY?!?!

2NE1, do you need a hug? We miss your fun and spunky ways. Tell you what: you should come over to our new apartment. It’ll be fun! We’ve got board games like Cranium and our dog is blue. He likes girls more than guys as well, so he’ll be pretty snuggly with you all. And he’s blue! Maybe, maybe you can even be in one of our videos? We’d have lots of fun! Anyhow, we know you’re probably too busy for that, but, hopefully you’ll soon stop doing sad songs and make us shake our butts some more. 2NE1, FIGHTING!

Back to talking about the video: is it a coincidence that YG’s two latest videos by Big Bang and 2NE1 involve excessive walking through weird scenarios? In Big Bang’s “Love Song” they walk through some scary bizarre exploded gas station supermarket in Europe. Now 2NE1 walk through some bizarre cityscape, and end up in a room where it you see a huge sign for the Lonely Supermarket through the window, the lights constantly flicker, and it snows indoors. P.S. is that the same snow machine from Big Bang’s “Love Song” video? Maybe. P.P.S we’d like to have a snow machine in our apartment. Ohhh the possibilities!

2NE1's Lonely, Flaxton

Flaxton St, from 2NE1's "Lonely"

Another question: where are they? We asked this when we did our review, but we didn’t really go into all of the points. We tried looking at the signs, and this was the cleanest street sign we could get. Anyone know where there is a Flaxton that leads into water? We looked on Google Maps but got bored and couldn’t investigate it any further. We’re starting to feel like these YG walking videos are just grabbing a bunch of stuff from garage sales and putting them in their vids. They give off an ambience and vibe, sure, but the signs can’t be taken literally (or else we’d have to believe that Big Bang’s “Love Song” was filmed close to a cathedral in Prague).

We’ll stop rambling now. Anyhow, yay this was the first Kpop Music Monday we filmed in our new apartment! What do you think so far? We realized that the name of this week’s edition of Music Mondays was a bit bizarre, but we thought it suited the fact that we’re filming in a new location as well. Ah. We’ll put up an apartment tour probably in a couple of weeks or so. We can’t film it this weekend, because we’re going to Japan for a couple of days on the weekend and won’t have a chance to film it before we have to film for our next Kpop Music Mondays.

B2ST Fiction and Fact Album

B2ST Fiction and Fact Album

And now for the winners of our B2ST contest: We decided to give away two copies of B2ST’s new album for our favorite names for B2ST’s dance in Fiction. Thanks for all the submissions, everyone. There were tons of awesome answers, and it was really difficult to read through thousands of entries (uhhhhh) but we decided to stick with Spaghetti Legs by Enni Närvälä on Facebook, and the Procrastination Dance by ItsMaiyaMoo on YouTube. Woohoo! If you are either of these two people please send us an email and we’ll mail you a copy of the album! For those of you who didn’t win, we’d still recommend getting the album by clicking on the picture here. It’s an awesome album, and it ships overseas as well! Yay!


  2. Hey guys check out my entry to 2NE1’s Lonely Cover Contest. This is not something I have ever done, in fact it’s the first video I have ever made let alone uploaded, yikes. Unlike you guys, who make superior videos and are hilarious and incredible. Let me know what you think of my translation of the lyrics. Yay, for first time video … KPop ….. covers … of stuff ..yay!

  3. just wondering…….did anyone else notice that the gigantic LONELY sign seems to be backwards?  usually, when you see a giant sign, the scaffolding/braces holding it up are on the BACK side of the sign….not in front.  o_O  am I really the only one who was bothered by this?

  4. I just can’t seem to get into the 21 dirge fest. I need them to be fierce and fearless not mopey. Get your act together 21!

  5. Okay, you might have already answered this, but I have to ask-
    Is your stove on top of your washing machine? And, if it is, will you please do a wonderful treasure find for it? Because that’s just weird.

  6.  big bang vs 2ne1 i never thought that will happen i choose 2ne1

  7. „Procrastination Dance”, gosh, awesome xD
    I’m soooo sad that I couldn’t come up with something at least as cool >.< I’m obsessed with Batoo… Beast right now and I find this new album AWESOME (and too expensive for my wallet these days). Anyway – congrats to the winners :)You are so amazingly perceptive! (spostrzegawczy? no idea if the English translation is accurate ^^’) I wouldn’t spot all those weird signs or the wind indoors – which is really extremely strange O.OAs for the bizzarness… I would vote for Lonely. BB’s set was… kinda realistic. This one is NOT, because of those strange thingies and this HUGE „LONELY" logo. Creepy.

  8. Could you please do a blog on koreas history (:

    Also your follow us on twitter fb etc banner is really annoying and it moves to random places each time I refresh and most of the time it covers up your words and I can’t read anything

  9. the truth is i didn’t watch the video ,but i think that big bang has no relation with the video in the song but i like the set so big bang is very bizarre.

  10. Big Bang…though I think I like 2NE1’s song better.  That’s strange.


  12. BIGBANG…. or according to TOP its BIG BAO lol

  13. hmm they’re both my favorite but I think the most bizarre mv would be Big Bang’s Love Song.

  14. Spudgy looks sooo adorable when he’s sleeping <3

  15. pfft. Big Bang is the clear cut winner. <3

  16. Lol umm if I remember correctly Dara or Bom was scared of dogs xD

  17. Ooooooh, my two favorites, tough choice, but I’d have to go with Big Bang on this one!

  18. Since both MVs were directed by the same director, I’m going to go with Big Bang’s Love Song for the more bizarre movie set. As much as I liked the concept they were going with in Lonely with all four girls acting as one person walking alone, Love Song’s set was really out there, especially the ending. The the making of the film video for Love Song said that the concept for it was that the girl died and the boys are walking through the site of the accident and reminisces. After they explained that, I thought, so the girl died in a big car explosion? That’s really sad.. and obscure.

  19. i really like your kitchen…
    nice apartment..

  20. IS your stove also a… washing machine? The door on the front of your “stove” looks remarkably similar to the one on my washer and dryer. 
    P.S. i vote Big Bang, mainly because it looks like it might have been a nice place prior to the explosion while in lonely it looks as though they’re walking through a ghetto in…Poland?(no offens to the Polish, I’m sure Poland is a lovely place).

    • AH! So appearently 2ne1 was in NY. I was just watching ft island’s Hello Hello and right there, within the first ten seconds of the video you see a two street signs one says “ASHFIELD AVE. 300″ and the other says “FLAXTON ST. 300″…hm? Is New York really that different at night?

  21. nice apartment!!! congrats simon, martina, and spudgy!

    i was waiting for my name to appear in the vid :( but it’s ok til’ the next YG MV!

    GEEZ SO DIFFICULT! it’s like asking WHO DO YOU LIKE BETTER, MOM OR DAD.. or SIMON OR MATINA?! but as for the MV and the song, i would go to BIGBANG’S.. BUT I STILL LOVE YOU 2NE1 SO MUCH!

  22. Ahhhhhhhh!!!! Why do you have to make me choose! I LOOOOOOOVE YG Family!!!!!! 
    I still like BIGBANG more so anyway 2ne1 doesn’t have a car falling from the sky at the end of the mv

    p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 36.0px Helvetica}

    BIGBANGanyway 2ne1 doesn’t have a car falling from the sky at the end of the mv

  23. Personally.. 2NE1’s mv is more bizarre but i prefer BIGBANG. cuz,. well.. they looked HAWT in LOVE SONG xD


  25. I forgot to vote!! BIG BAAAANG!

  26. BIGBANG with Love Song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 ^.^*

  27. Oh yeah and your new place looks super cute!

  28. Lol at the lonely in the room part Martina is so Emo lol. Lmao at Martina tripping.  Don’t worry even my Father sometimes will trip over his toes too lol (he’s in his mid 50’s lol). I love going 85 somewhere lol. Could you imagine? That’s like Speed Racer! And as for the poll that’s so hard but I’m gonna go with Big Bang only cause at the end there’s the cool car that comes crashing out of nowhere. 

  29. Actually in Venezia.. they have speed sign hangin from the bridge and over the water… for the boats! but usually say 5 km/hr …
