Kpop Music Mondays: Block B “Very Good”

I’m very very good! And we’re back with Music Monday! It’s been so long! Look at us talking about Kpop videos again! Whoa. It’s been quite a while, since we’ve been out of the country for most of the month. We were shocked ourselves when we stood in front of the camera. Felt so…nostalgic!

Anyhow, if you haven’t seen it yet, check out Block B’s “Very Good” here:

Holy smokes was that ever fun! Gotta say, we weren’t fond of their first track, “Be the Light.” It was very very meh. I think you guise know our taste in music by now: big, explosive, bombastic, techno, disco, dancey, fun. Give me Mr. Simple. Fantastic Baby. I Am the Best. Roly Poly. Gentleman. Sherlock. Those are the songs that make us love Kpop. For other Kpop songs, we’re not fond of too much singing, nothing resembling ballads, nothing serious, nothing cutesy, and nothing too disjointed. My point is: this song and video are exactly what we want in Kpop. Let me shout along with something. Keep the energy up. Don’t spend all of your time in the video like you’re posing for a magazine. Have fun. Make me laugh. Block B’s great at that, as they were with Nilili Mambo. Block B: I like you guise.

Remember a while ago when we did our interview with them? They were hilarious. A few months later we posted our deleted footage from that interview, in which we saw Block B’s Derp Faces. Why wasn’t that included in the original video? Because their label didn’t want it in. They didn’t like how it portrayed Block B. But that’s how they are! They’re fun and silly! But the label didn’t like it. Now Block B’s not with the label anymore, so we could release the footage. YAY! Hopefully, if we get something set up with Block B again, we could have some more fun with them, and their new label will have more of an understanding of what makes them so fun and charming.

Now, for more matters of other stuff:

I’m Not Ugly, I’m Exotic: The Shirt!

I know people have been asking for this for a while, ever since we opened the store. We’ve been working on a design for so long. SO LONG GUISE! But we finally have one that we’re happy with, that captures the true essence of Fangurilla, we think. Soo Zee designed this. Check it out in the shop and let us know what you think :D

YouTube Music Awards

You might have seen the hype starting to build around the YouTube Music Awards, brought to you by Kia. It’s a 5 country event, and it’s starting off in Seoul! There’s an awesome lineup…AND WE’RE GONNA BE THERE! AYEEE! There’s some more stuff in store as well leading up to the event. Some of those things might interfere with our regular filming schedule, but it’ll be worth it. I’ll just leave this here:

Also, voting for the event is now open. Vote for Girls Generation for Video of the Year, and Psy for Artist of the Year. Let’s make Kpop the most prominent part of the awards. This ain’t gonna be the YouTube Music Awards, but the YouTube Kpop Awards. Let’s put all the other bands to shame. Justin Who? I thought so!

  4. I’m so glad you guys are back! I only just discovered EYK in July by chance (besides Gangnam Style, I’d never listened to kpop or knew that much about korean culture). Now I’m almost completely caught up watching all your videos and, even though I’m a new follower, I still feel like I’m part of the Nasty family now – I was even missing you guys during your trip! Happy you had a good trip and that your back now!!! And super happy you chose Very Good for Music Mon! I was hoping you would!!!!! : D

  6. lol I think Jaehyo has enough distractions right now to be getting on with right now. (boobie lady in video / adult video lady / and now Fangurrilla ) :P

  7. I’m in love with this. I really hoping you’d do this since it was on the kpop chart for like three weeks and you were talking about this song. I loved this KMM and the whole mask thing was exactly my problem with it when I first watched the video. I hope you guys get to interview them again and that they were picked up. I literally cheered when I heard that news. And Fangurilla, honey you’re allowed to do whatever you want with your body, but not many people may be comfortable with you flashing the interwebs…

    • Look, the point is that they’re really incompetent criminals. That’s the joke. They made it in Nillili Mambo too.

      I have to say, I think Dal Shabet might be that little bit worse…

  8. I’M SO HAPPY YOU REVIEWED VERY GOOD. I was fully mentally prepared for you not choosing them since they weren’t at the top anymore, so you’ve just blown my mind. With happiness.
    I think I will never get used to Fangurilla.

  9. YAAAY~! I’m so happy you guys reviewed Block B! As much as I love Shinee, I was really hoping that you’d choose Block B for this weeks KMM. They’ve had so many problems, so to see them come back with such flavour and energy was amazing. So glad to have KMMs back again too! Fangurilla, we’ve missed you!

  10. I still can’t figure out what the beginning of the song is. It sounds like ‘food fight!’, but that can’t be right.. right?

    3 years ago
    • I’m sure it is. That’s their way of saying right up front that the concept of the video is crazy fun — not the serious bank robbery the first 30 seconds seemed to indicate.

    That nose picking sooooooo NASTY~~

  13. Honestly, I’m not a big fan of Fangurilla. I find her to be an amusing annoyance (or an annoying amusement depending on my mood) but I cracked up laughing when she flashed the camera! I may be scarred for life but is was hilarious all the same! ^^

  14. So did anyone else notice this video was a weird love child of Ramstein’s Ich Will and the bank robbery scene in the dark knight. Don’t believe me? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4K6ZxDwi34

    and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3-ClsRE9Yk

    I don’t really have a problem with this, I just don’t think it was very original.

    • omg I love rammstein!! and yes, true

    • I knew that had to be a Jack Sparrow impersonation toward the end of Nillili Mambo. But it’s always nice to have confirmation. ;)

      • Sauerkraut! Currywurst! Yay, well maybe its a conspiracy or they just recorded this video in Germany, or they just picked a cool car from a german tv advert, cause on the car registration appears a D of Deutschland, and specifically from Berlin. So, yeah, just saying. VERY GOOD night from a spanish teen in germany whoop whoop :3

        3 years ago
    • Truthfully there isn’t very much that is original anymore. Everything is an inspiration from something else, it’s just a matter of finding a different way of presenting it, to make it uniquely yours without out right plagiarizing it. Sorry, I believe the voice of every art teacher I’ve ever had in my life is speaking for me right now. :-P

      When it comes to the overall Very Good video I read somewhere that they were making a jest at music videos that have come out in the past year within the kpop world. Once i read that I understood why everything was so chaotic in video. It’s good ole fun.

      3 years ago
    • Yay for Rammstein being mentioned! I think they turned it into something that was very much their own though despite pulling it from other popular culture.

  17. Fangurilla, AMEN!! I know what I’m gonna get for Christmas when I get some monies, lots of EYK merchandise! I loved seeing the longer videos again. Maybe you can’t always do longer videos, I understand, but I do prefer them. Also, doesn’t Spudgy luv his mum? He’ll always choose Martina! Ok, hope you guys can get some rest now.

    3 years ago
  18. Um, why? Are you losing your internet or something? I’m just saying that’s kind of unorthodox to say. I mean, if this is a way of you saying you don’t like S&M, that’s cool I guess. Just very odd also.

  21. YAY! It’s so wonderful to have you guys back and be doing KMM’s again. I feel like bouncing around in a circle full of glee!

    With so many wonderful options that came out while you guys were away, I’m really glad you went with Block B. Everything was really good but I knew Block B was right up you’re alley. So colorful and hyper and bombastic. This video fit their ear worm of a song and you guys reviewed it splendidly. Oh Fangurrilla, how we’ve all missed you and are now scared by your hairy, hairy chest. Seriously girl let me introduce you to someone who can wax that thing for you. ;)

    3 years ago
    • Side note: I used to wax my chest before meeting Martina. It made me more aerodynamic. But Martina likes the chest hair. Who am I to refuse?

      3 years ago
      • Why…would you wax it? Is chest waxing a common thing in….Canada? North America? Is it a western thing? Like, for example, I didn’t know about women shaving their legs until I went to Australia. Or maybe it’s just more openly discussed in some countries compared to others. I’m half white, but I grew up in Asia, and in high school, my friends used to stare at my legs and touch them and marvel at how hairy there were, lol. Their legs were just naturally smooth??? I’m not sure if it’s a cultural thing, or a genetic thing…am I making sense?

        Anyway, I’m all for chest hair and body hair and facial hair and all that jazz. It’s natural UV and mozzie protection~ 8D

        3 years ago
        • I’m American and it’s mostly a beauty thing. Girls with lighter hair don’t shave as often (some of them) because it doesn’t show up as much. My friend is pasty white with black hair has to shave all the time, because her hair always shows up. I think it’s also ‘unprofessional’ for woman since it doesn’t look like we care about our appearance and are grungy. When winter comes along my friends and I get so excited because we don’t have to shave our legs anymore since we will be wearing pants all the time an no one will notice! :D

          3 years ago
        • wow you didn’t know about wxing before? do asians have no hair at all?

          3 years ago
        • Is that a rhetorical question?

          It’s just that in the country I was living in, almost everyone covered themselves from wrist to ankle, so there wasn’t really any need for hair removal, I think. When they’re at home and dressed more lightly, I do notice some hair…just a lot less that me :/

          Btw…why do you always delete your comments? Do you really want to delete them, or are you just trying to anonymise them?

          3 years ago
        • I have no science to back this up, but my personal experience is that people of Asian descent have less body hair than people of European descent. *cue hairy Dothraki man warrior joke* In North America, most women shave their legs because smooth legs are considered more attractive. Plus, less hair results in less body odor, because sweat/dirt/etc tends to get stuck to hair. It’s less common for men to shave or wax, but some do.
          Also, it’s really cool to be replying to you after seeing your comments on here all the time.

          3 years ago
        • Hah, replying to me is not cool at all? You should do it more often, the novelty will wear off reaaaal fast :p

          I never really considered the body odour aspect of it. :o
          I once looked up leg shaving on wikipedia, but now you’re tempting me to do some proper research. Maybe I should make this my next literature review topic xD

          3 years ago
        • There’s a very simple explanation that I have found most people don’t think of for why women shave our legs- It makes us feel confidant. Its the same reason we wear fun patterned bras while single and paint our toes in winter when no one’s wearing opened toed shoes. It puts a spring in our step and makes us feel better when facing the world. I don’t know why, it just does.

          3 years ago
        • ROFL X”’DDD … I don’t know but in general… it wouldn’t be nice to see hair on a girl’s/woman’s legs… especially if you like to wear short pants(I don’t but just saying)… like it’s ok for men to not shave(though I prefer the opposite) but for girls to have the same manly feeling… XD I don’t know… it kind of repulses me… and I’m even tomboish and stuff :))

          3 years ago
        • But why? Why isn’t it nice to see hair on a woman’s legs? Why do you prefer shaved men? Why is hairy legs ok for men but not for women? Why does it repulse you?

          Please, enlighten me. I’ve always found this shaving/waxing culture completely bizarre.

          3 years ago
        • I think it’s more of a preference thing…on an island that nobody shaves and nobody ever heard of shaving, for example, there’s no interest in shaving. I found that, once I was exposed to unshaving…I found it more pleasant, indispensable and now “cannot unsee” :)) P.S: waxing is quite intense so I don’t use wax.

          3 years ago
        • It’s just what’s considered beauty, unfortunately. I also don’t know why but it seems like woman have to have smooth legs to be beautiful. I myself, actually like the feeling and look of smooth legs, but don’t like the work they give me. You see, I’m portuguese, I’m a very hairy gal, and my mother didn’t let me wax my legs until a certain age, and I was picked on by other girls. That always made me ashamed of my hairy legs, to the point that nowadays I actually am a little ashamed of showing them to my family, which is stupid.
          One thing that I don’t get is girls who waxshave their arms. O_O why???

          About men I think it’s more of a personal preference, or sometimes they have to do it because of sports. I don’t mind hair chest at all.

      • Why did I just read the word “aerodynamic” in your TOP voice?

        And you are correct you should not refuse what your beautiful lady wants. Wolverine all the way!

  22. Welcome back!!! Yeah for KMM! Yeah for Block B! I feel “very good” that you reviewed them before Shinee’s “Everybody” a video equal worth talking about but us Nasties can keep/make it an option for next week. :)

    3 years ago
  23. My vote goes to Dal Shabet, because although Block B was Very, Very Good, they were not the worst robbers. Does that make sense? ^^

    The video is super fun, but I prefered Nilili Mambo, it was less G-Dragonish (and it was in Vietnaaaaaam!)

    And I’m glad to see you back on KMM guise! This one was as funny as ever (I especially laughed at the discreet “before leaving without the money” at the beginning). Now GO TO SLEEEEEEEP!

  24. since you haven’t review it, I’m curious what you think about Everybody.

    3 years ago
    • I know I will get backlash for this, but I really didn’t like Everybody… it was not on par with other SHINee stuff. The dance felt awkward the song stiff.

      3 years ago
      • I don’t like the song at all but I thought the dance was awesome.

        3 years ago
      • no. at least not from me. everyone has it’s own opinion. for me this is what I expected from SHINee. it’s probably because it’s so deifferent from their other stuff and k-pop and general that’s why some people are not that much into it. but come on the dance was amezing, one fo the best in k-pop i’ve seen so far.

        3 years ago
        • well I guess they were supposed to be robots ( at the beginning when that kid pluged them in) ….and the fashion… well…. is SHINee known for having normal stage clothes :))?

  27. I love that you guys wear your shirts in these videos — it’s nice to be able to see what they look like on a real, moving person. That said, as a girl with a larger chest, I wish there were more EYK shirts with smaller, at-the-top-of-the-shirt-er font. I LOVE the way “exotic” is written on the shirt with the little chibi Fangurilla, but on me that would all be….erm, in an awkward place. Just my two cents.

    In other news, glad to see Block B made it this week! Good choice, Spudgy! And your Canadian bank heist skit was hilarious. :D

    3 years ago
    • Side note: I’m not trying to compare chest sizes, and I don’t understand the plight of women’s clothing all too much, but Martina has big boobies, so you can kinda relate, unless yours are gigantic, and in that case I can’t carry on this conversation any more.

      *awkward cough*

      3 years ago
      • LOL! No, I’m about Martina-sized; I just don’t like font on my stomach/under-chest area. It’s not so bad if the shirt is on the baggy side, though, so maybe I just need to suck it up and buy a looser shirt.

        Can’t believe we’re having this conversation… :P
