YESSSSS! A 4Minute video! We know a lot of you aren’t voting for 4Minute, because you think we’re gonna trash on em, but that’s not true! Well, not…entirely true! Sure, they suck at using phones and at generally having any self-preservation instinct, but that doesn’t make me like this song any less. Check out 4Minute’s “Is It Poppin” if you haven’t seen it yet:


It’s not as good as WASH YO NEIGH, but it’s not bad, either. It’s just not breathtakingly awesome. It’s just…ok. The verses fall rather flat and leave you yearning for the chorus to come in to save the song, and it does a great job at that. It’s light, airy-fairy, and serves as a decent appetizer, rather than as a main dish. It’s not offensively bad. It’s forgettable, but it’s something to sing along to if heard on the streets.

The video’s not great for the song. Cute and sexy don’t go together for us. Be cute or be sexy. Cuteness isn’t sexy, and mixing the two is uncomfortable, and the video does that a bit too much. The staring at the fire in the club just seems like such a needless, thoughtless addition as well. Why would everyone stop to point at a fire? Who proposed that during the script writing for the video? “Yeah: they’re all gonna dance, it’s gonna be really hot. So hot that the club catches on Fire! And then…everyone will point at the fire” You had me up until the pointing at the fire part. It would have been great if the sprinklers came on right away, instead of making everyone look like dummies waiting for Natural Selection to whisk them away.

And I’m totally confused about the message of the song and how it matches the video. They lyrics are supposed to be about a girl being sad, because her boyfriend neglects her, won’t pick up her calls, and goes out to party without her, and she feels all sad for it. Did any of you get that sense of sadness in the video? At the beginning they look a bit sad when the phone isn’t being picked up, but then the rest of the video is a sexy party. How the eff does that match up? It’s just such a sloppy and lazy and asinine video. This isn’t us trashing on 4Minute. It’s just the concept of the video that’s terrible.

Anyhoodledoodlepoodle, even if the video’s not the best, we’ve felt like there’s been a gap in our hearts with the lack of 4Minute videos on Kpop Music Mondays, and there have been some real goldmines out there (ohh “Ice Cream,” how we mourn for you), so now that they made it into the top 3 we definitely chose them above everyone else. Sorry B.A.P. fans. We like Coffee Shop, but we’ve done just about everything B.A.P. has ever made, and they make videos almost as much as U-Kiss does, which is, like, every 3 days. So, not only did we pick this video to do a Music Monday for, but we’re also giving away 4Minute’s latest CD. You want it? Here’s how we’ll give it to you!

1) Subscribe to us on YouTube: that’s the easy part!
2) Let us know in the comments what you would name their dance. We thought of fart wafting because we’re childish. What do you think?

If you want to leave your answers here rather than on YouTube, make sure to leave your YouTube username as well, so we can make sure you’re subscribed. Yay!

Other than that, we have a few bloopers this week. Spudgy had a bit of a laugh at us after he set up a trap…


  1. Eh,eh,eh,eh it’s 4minute!

  2. Yay! This review was informative and HILARIOUS – you guys were back on form. :-) With the phone number, is there a Korean equivalent of 555 (the American TV and film fake telephone number prefix) that ensures they don’t accidentally use a real person’s number? Though I don’t know how you’d do that with a mobile phone…. After The Doctor’s mobile number was shown on Doctor Who, I tried it but it didn’t connect to anything. It was saved in my phone for a while though, just in case…

    I would name the dance the Banishment Bothering Butt Wiggle. Note the degree of bending over, and the amount of shake. There’s nothing there that’s quite extreme enough to incur the wrath of The Ministry of Banishment but this whole butt wiggling epidemic must be making them feel mighty uncomfortable…. Also, I don’t think the profile I have on here is linked to my youtube one, but I promise I am subscribed!

  3. so music core just included the engrish at the beginning in the subtitles. apparently they’re saying “GET YOU BIG ASS HOME RIGHT NOW”. i am crying omg.

  4. it should be called “what’s with the Butt?!”, ” Rub that BooTY ” or “Rub-A-Bum” lol from the rub-a-dub
    or.. baby Bum-ble bee.. since they look like a child getting sleep w/ their thumb choreo hahaha & bee is just nothing.its from the song baby bumblebee

    YTname: Jeremae Agrimor

    i did comment the rub that booty on yt :)))

  5. I SAW THAT TARDIS IN THE KITCHEN, just sayin! ^^

  6. It shall be known as “Trimming the Goatee”

  7. It can be called BUT WAVE!!!

  8. Signs are going up in the US about evacuating from a fire “BEFORE” posting about it.

  9. youtube user name: wolfwhispered

    The “Feel the Burn Dance” for after you exercise and you spent too long working out your gluts and now you’re all sore so you rub your poor bum in pain and have to bite your thumb because it hurts so much.

  10. oh i just remembered! in the beginning of the song, i think it’s get your big ass home right now but they had to like bleep it out since kbs banned the song…something like that haha

  11. Am I the only one who sees the shirt that says “satan” at the beginning? O.o

  12. 1) Nessthenoob

    2) I’m gonna call it the “baby bottle” dance because it looks like they’re holding a baby bottle while shakin their booties??? I DON’T KNOW???

  13. Hi S&M, While I respect your choice to choose whomever you want cause it’s your show, I can’t help but to wonder why have a voting system in place if number one isn’t reviewed. While B.A.P to you, “make videos almost as much as U-Kiss does, which is, like, every 3 days. So”, to us they deserve to be reviewed because their music is really good and original working really hard for their fans.

    Coffee Shop deserves to be reviewed because it’s refreshing and totally different from the same ol’ generic worn out music playing in kpop right now just like the MV concept. Coffee Shop stands out including the MV they have. Your reasoning for choosing 4minute is rather lacking but once again it’s your show so you get to run it the way you want. Babyz and Warriors kept working hard to vote even through your bonding trip skipped Kpop music Monday. It’s not fair to us either. Notice only 2 have favored the review on EYK site.

    If 4minute had done something different and better than Coffee Shop then I wouldn’t be saying anything. Once in a while even if a video has nothing to poke fun at for a good skit it doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be reviewed and this goes out to those who said B.A.P’s video was boring compared to this. There is depth and beautiful scenery in the MV.

    Now 2NE1 is in first place, by no means am I taking away from them cause I happen to like them a lot, the best female group to me, but I’m betting you will review them and not B.A.P because you reviewed them so much before and they’re not a female group leaving B.A.P fans out in the cold again.

    Just sharing my take on the matter other than that Kudos to you. I do like 2NE1’s knew song very much. <3

    • Oh please. Until you’re in a Heo Young Saeng position, get over it. Seriously, bap fans are one of the last fans that should be butt hurt. So many songs that are actually good have been passed on. Both coffee shop and this song are okay songs, nothing amazing about them. Actual interesting songs from lesser known people don’t get reviewed though. Just get used to not being reviewed, even if a song reviewed is totally crappy while a possible one was amazing.

      • I can say or feel however I want. I am a Hardcore Baby, a real fan and I want Coffee Shop to be reviewed. I believe it’s a great song and totally different from the crap that’s floating around. I don’t like this “is it poppin” song at all, that’s my right. Coffee Shop isn’t much to you well then good for you that’s not my concern. I am a hardcore B.A.P fan because I happen to truly LOVE ALL of their SONGS and following since before their official debut so yeah I don’t agree with their reasoning for not reviewing the song. Their is a voting process in place and if people are taking the time out to vote relentlessly caring enough to do so and not have fruition then yes I or any other Baby/Warrior can voice their discontent. This also applies to other fans with majority whom vote like crazy and they don’t get their song reviewed.They really didn’t have good enough reasons to me…period.

        • First of all, if you seriously think that coffee shop of all songs is the most different song out, then you seriously must not know what’s in the music scene right now. Coffee Shop is no different than is it poppin in terms of uniqueness. I don’t understand why in the world babys think that. Seriously, that song is not special. No mercy is more unique than it.
          Well no one cares that you love all their songs. Just because you’re unobjective fan doesn’t do anything. I’m a inspirit and at least I knew man in love didn’t deserve to be reviewed and many better songs could have.
          Anyways, just because for once babys were “screwed over” (they weren’t) doesnt mean anything. Do you know how many groups have never been reviewed and fan kept them in the top 3 for almost a month? Get over the fact your bias group hasn’t been reviewed. You only took notice of the terrible voting system once you felt wronged. You have no idea how fans have been truly wronged.

    • They used to only review #1s until they got tired of having no real say in the choice; there were videos they wanted to review that didn’t make it to the top because of ballot-stuffing by certain fandoms. Thus a compromise was struck where Simon and Martina would pick one of the top three.

  14. Great KMM, even if I will never be able to watch the whole 4minute video. BAP’s song wouldn’t have had as much to do cool skits with. From the little bit I watched, There are a ton of epic shirts in there. “girls find boys” “class of 1981″ ( I doubt she was alive in ’81) and I really want to know what that skirt said. I couldn’t find a clear shot to pause.

    I vote 2 pm for the showdown. I will admit, i prefer pretty boys to pretty girls when it comes to butt dancing. Also the song is more my taste.

  15. Simon, you don’t need to stop, drop and roll until you ARE ON FIRE! XD If you just see fire nearby, rolling around might not be the greatest idea… :x

  16. i was so shocked at the part of that mv when they started pointing and looking at the fire!! what the hell!!! who came up with this video!???
    you see a fire, you get your butt the furthest away from that fire and outta there!!!

    ahahahahah you actually dialed the number!!! man that is one of the most hilarious things ever!!

    bahah oh my gosh!! Martina’s creepy face through the kitchen door!!!

  17. I hate you Simon…*not really please do ‘Coffee Shop’! And I kinda disagree with you as that girl is the hottest girl ever? (no idea who I’m talking about…) I believe its either Suzy or Jessica or Taeyeon or IU.

    I need that shirt.

  19. All the Korean guys in my school doesn’t like Hyuna. (They don’t hate her) xD

  20. I really liked Is it popping song but mv was quite meh to me. Well I’m not into club mv’s, I don’t usually like even my bias’ groups club/party mv’s so that’s it for me. KMM was really hilarious though I just hoped you’d have talk about outfits choices and all funny english texts in them XD To me it was most intresting thing in the mv.

    I vote for 2PM, their butt-dance was sth completely new for boy group and I loved it!

  21. This was funny and I recommend everyone to always read your blog post, too, cause it gives additional laughter ^^

    I don’t really like the song – it’s just boring to me – and the MV is not that compelling either, but I thought the pointing-at-the-fire-scene was quite fitting “Look, we are so hot we set the roof on fire – best party ewa!” :D
    For the showdown I vote for 2PM, they are the definition of sexy :)

  22. okay i love 4minute, but at the beginning i understood..”Get your big a** on right now!” lool and i was like…wait how would they know I have a big a**???

  23. I’d name this dance the SATAN13!!!!
    (yt name: bernidamm)

  24. Martina: ” Hello ~ ”

    Voice: ” Hi there, Simon ”

    *lol* xD

    Nice KMM, my day started out well ^-^

  25. 3497-1672 doesn’t quite roll off the tongue like 867-5309.

  26. omg!! your phone rings with the Tae-MAN song!!!!!!!!!! where can i get that?!?! XD

    this was a really funny KMM though… i laughed so hard at the fart dance… and god, Fangurilla doing the moves… so gross! lol.

    and i also like the little blurbs of fangurilla at the end. it’s a nice touch. i hope you keep them going! (PS: Fangurilla needs to shave….. )

  27. Siri saying “Hi there Simon” in the bloopers after Martina said hello just really cracked me up for some reason. And you’ve got balls, if I tried a number from a music video and it worked after adding an area code I would hang up the instant I heard it going.

  28. When I hear “butt rub”, somehow I think of barbecue seasoning.

  29. Martina – the bandana looks awesome! The colors look so much brighter than I remember. And Log Pillow is helping Simon to be comfortable. Good Log Pillow. :)

  30. Your Hyuna calling skit was spot on……. yup… even married Korean guys… haha.

    And thanks for ruining that dance for me! I’ve been doing it lately and now I’m just going to think of farts! haha

  31. First of all, it was Sohyun who called, not Hyuna.
    Secondly, it was supposed to be “GET YOUR BIG ASS HOME RIGHT NOW” but thanks to the tv station KBS, the word ‘ass’ had to be censored and that became a mess of mumble-jumble english at the start TT^TT
    *sigh* I’m really happy that you guys, EYK, reviewed 4Minute^^ but I also had been hoping that you knew about the banning problem with KBS…and that you knew your members…
    On the bright side, 4MINUTE CD GIVEAWAYYYY!!!

  32. im not disappointed with the review since KMM lack of girl group mv review…. b4 this im hoping for expectation and first love…

  33. its ok babys….they will hv another track coming up as 2ne1, junsu….

  34. I vote for 4minute.
    And I would call their dance the Cheese Roll.
    Youtube name: hkfunla

  35. The Shake & Fries Dance. They’re obviously licking the grease & salt off they’re thumbs while shaking their bums.

  36. http://www.eatyourkimchi. com/kpop-4minute-isitpoopin

    How ironic, that’s what I was doing too.

  37. there’s a dude at their party named satan
