Kpop Music Mondays: Eatyourkimchi LIKE A MAN!

April 23, 2013

Oh my god! Y U SO NASTY BIASED? For some strange reason, this awkward band, song, and music video made it into the top three for our KpopCharts. How? Why? What the eff, yo? If you haven’t seen this train wreck of a Music Video, check it out here:

Ok, we were sarcastic enough in the video. I’ll stop ripping into us for this Music Monday. We just thought it’d be funny if we reviewed ourselves, though we didn’t know how to do it right. We have that level of distance between us and Kpop labels, so we can look at what they’re doing and attempt to come to some conclusions about the Kpop industry. Our video, though, isn’t really part of the industry, so we can’t approach it the same way, and come up with any insights. We would need to take this video seriously, which we clearly can’t do. We tried, though!

Anyhow, our real review for Music Monday is coming up. As I write this, we’re about half-way done editing. Wow. I just realized it’s 1:30AM right now. Man, we sure live in some bizarre time zone. We would have just done our Music Monday alone on this, but we know that people would be upset, so we had to do two Music Mondays.

FYI, we weren’t joking when we said that people email us asking for advice on how to become Kpop idols. I’m not sure why we get these emails, let alone why we get them so frequently. Why would people think that we know how to do it? We make YouTube videos, and we sometimes have interviews with Korean groups. That’s not equal to having insider information on becoming a celebrity. Might as well ask us how to be a Canadian celebrity. Also, in the five years we’ve been here, I don’t know any non-Asian Kpop idols (any serious ones, at least). We, as the Eatyourkimchi Crew, definitely don’t count.

Lastly, we joked about this being the second worst song of the year. Don’t try to guess what we think is the first. It’s a trap! We won’t answer that at all EVER. Well, maybe in private over a few drinks, but only after we have a staff of security pat you down to make sure you’re not hiding a video camera on you or something…

Also, no bloopers for this video, because there really weren’t any skits and we didn’t mess up our lines. It was pretty straightforward for us. Our next video, though: whoa that’s got a lot of bloopers to it…

  2. KEKEKEKE Someone trolling Meemers at the back with laserlight! Thanks I really enjoyed this KMM, much more than some reviews of famous groups etc.

    I usually don’t wanna participate in the “fight” between people who actively support S&M and those haters who need to get a life, but I have got to say: Stay classy people. No need to degenerate into name-callers and whatnot. S&M are bringing us so much fun & laughter, which if you can’t appreciate, go away. If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything.

    They are NOT here to promote YOUR favorite group. They bring PERSONAL reviews that THEY believe in. If you can’t take some things with a pinch of salt, maybe your time will be better spent elsewhere.

    • Exactly which ‘haters’ are you referring to? I just want to caution people again against labeling everyone who does not agree with everything Simon and Martina as ‘ haters’. I certainly sometimes have a different opinion, and I work for them.

      Although I do agree with the fact that if what they do does bother someone to that extent, then your time would be better spent elsewhere.

      • Those as I say: Namecallers. Using insults that are uncalled for.

        4 years ago
        • Ah, well yes. I can understand that. However during the last issue that they had spoken about Aka ‘Leehigate’ there was no name calling.

          Actually the only name calling came from people saying that others who posted comments expressing discontent were not ‘ real nasties’ or ‘ haters’. Thus why I questioned it. Usually the comments on this site are really respectfully stated and if they are not, the moderators will do what they can to make sure it is not allowed to continue being disrespectful.

          However I do know that there are name callers and people who are mean about eyk on other forums. Unfortunately we don’t have any control over that. They usually hide behind that anonymity.

          Thanks for the clarification.

        • Ahhh I see. I came over from youtube just now so well you know, there aren’t moderators over there :/

          4 years ago
        • Yes, that was one of the other places I was referring to. I find it depends on the ‘ culture’ of the place. Youtube tends to attract more casual viewers who say whatever they feel like saying because there is anonymity and people are sort of used to there being a lot of mean comments on youtube videos. Almost all videos have some type of really rude comment. Unfortunately the site moderators only work on the website. Other forums like youtube and tumblr, twitter and Facebook are not moderated.

          Thus why I like to use the website. We try to make it nice and comfortable and to create a ‘community’ atmosphere here.

          4 years ago
        • I like that people try to make logical reasoning and keep the nasty comments (if any) in their heads here(: Just because some perceive a veil of anonymity on other sites an intellectual exchange often deteriorates into vilified comments. People who just want to put forth their rationale views often get discouraged from participating, and the situation becomes a case where empty vessels make the loudest noise.

        • Hah! Someone posted this comic a few days ago and I thought it was appropriate.

  3. I actually was less impressed by your “eat your kimchi like a man” parody than your “gangnam style” one… so I think that this KMM is MUCH funnier than the actual video. lol. It’s sooo funny how you’re poking fun at everything that you normally do, along with the few little jabs at your haters, eheh. 2 thumbs up from me! lol.

  4. After reading your posts, I realize some of your problem is that we fans are also not to vocal about it.

    I live in Shanghai, China, which is great by the way, but unfortunately YouTube is banned here. This means I survive by reading your comments below every video, even though I am unable to watch the video in all it’s glory. Sure, there is VPN or maybe I am lucky enough to see one video get stripped off of YouTube on to China ‘YouTube’ sites, but both of those are hard processes.

    Why do I do this?

    Because I love you guys. Just solely reading comments makes me happy, because I know these are two genuine people who are happy to entertain us with your hard work but also not afraid to critique and present your view. Of course, being a fan for some Kpop groups, I wish that your views can be the same as mine. But I also know I am biased.

    You present your opinions with honesty, humor and kindness (because you actually think about the viewers’ feelings). So even if this KMM is the last one, I’m not a fan of KMM– I’m a fan of Simon and Martina. You guys are worth the hard work I go through every Tuesday (time difference :) ).

  5. It’s funny; I was curious about what bad remarks have been going around so decided to look through the comments, but can’t even get to them because there’s so much positive reinforcement from all the fellow Nasties! This is actually my second time watching this Music Monday and it still has me laughing. When I was watching it all I could think was “their acting skills are phenomenal” , because I kept watching it like a real Music Monday and laughed so hard I think I broke a rib. Honestly, I’m glad it wasn’t the real one… because that meant I got to watch two new videos in one day.

    If someone, or even a million, say something hurtful, it doesn’t matter. Look at the wall with all the generous Nasty names on it and remember that we are true fans, friends, and family. Some of us were late to the game and some of us were here from the beginning, but regardless, at this very moment we come and stay for Simon and Martina, EYK, and the EYK Crew. So let dogs bark, I’m sure they have their reasons, but it doesn’t mean we have to listen. =D Nasty For Life!

  6. Best K-Pop Music Monday ever!!! I have even more respect for you guys that you were able to make fun of yourselves. You had me rolling on the floor the whole time. Don’t ever change. Love you guys! <3 P.S. your video wasn't that bad. And actually I LOVE your track better than the original!! The rhymes were dope, no joke! Keep up the awesome work you two.

Soozee’s interview, the English is a 2, Ryan is included in “woman with a different wig” montage, Meemer’s chasing the laser light. And I love the showdown between EYK Crew and JYJ!

    An interview with JYJ so has to happen! I really loved this video guys. You can tell you guys had so much funny making this KPMM!

  16. Simon and Martina, I’m sorry you had to experience a lot of Assties -pfft!- lately. But just so you know I love your videos because they make me smile. I am happy every time you do a video, because it’s like when I see you guys, I’m seeing a friend again. Some people may not have been here long enough to feel that yet, but whenever I felt depressed or irritated at the world and the fact I’m not in Korea again, when I see you guys, I’m brought to life. It makes me happy to know that there are still people as great as you guys in this world, no matter how depressing things can get. You are my role models, and although you may not know me personally I think of you like a great friend and I’m glad that your taking a lot of time for us (and probably other things) So >////:D FIGHTING!

  19. Had to come on here and represent my love for the EYK Crew.

    The fact that Simon and Martina can poke fun at themselves for a parody video that they worked sooooooOOOOOOooooOOOOOO flippin’ hard to put out in the first place, to me, merits true props. They could just as easily have taken pride in their achievement and the fact people voted it into and so high up on the Charts, but no; what did they do? They took the comical route, and had fun with it, as they ALWAYS do.

    This is why I love Simon and Martina, and I love EatYourKimchi, and I will always, always, ALWAYS, be a faithful Nasty.
    EYK Crew represent. xoxo

    P.S. I saw a Meemerz! The EYK Crew is complete. (Kitties with lasers are so adorable.) <3

    If this is your real KMM for the week, I am happy with it.
    as a Nasty, I laughed through out the video from the beginning til the end
    I cant believe you 2 reviewed this video XD!
    After you have a new studio, you 2 came up with lots of new ideas, love it!!

  28. I started watching Simon and Martina for about a year and a half and I just love to watch their videos as they make me laugh :) I still watch them and love how they always try to teach us more about Korea and not just K-Pop, it feels like most people come for the K-Pop only :( It saddens me that Simon and Martina have to go through what most K-Pop idols go through when they themselves are not idols (though even if they were it wouldn’t make it alright). I hope what I am trying to say is coming across. Simon and Martina keep doing what you are doing you have really inspired me. You guys give me hope for my own future. I want to travel and visit Japan one day, but not only that you guys have inspired me to become more confident! this sounds so cheesy, but it’s what I think. I don’t know what to do with my own life right now and feel frustrated with myself, but seeing people like you guys and many others that are the same have inspired me. So thank you guys! I am totally on board with what eatyourkimchi-uh had to say!

  29. I can’t believe that I thought Music Monday wasn’t up yet cause I thought this was last weeks review ha! Memers so distracting, I realised I wasn’t watching or listening to martina and had to replay that bit again, Spudy/simon is hilarious at the end. This was great guys, especially as I wasn’t into any of the top 3, marginally interested in GD’s song, but feels a lot like a mix of what he has already released this year. Glad you did a second one cause of potential haters/trolls, but glad to see comments are almost universally positive. Boy have you guys been busy this week!! Thanks for the hard work.

  30. Super hilarious and awesome video!!! But I bet those people who say “you so biased” will watch this and STILL not understand that it’s a response to that criticism. EVERYBODY gets the same treatment – not even EYK is safe from EYK!! I don’t see why that’s so difficult for some people to grasp.

    And you want me to choose between my two biases, EYK and JYJ?!?!? NOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooo!

    4 years ago
  31. I’m a folower of the EYK from the beggining, when they had those videos with their friends talking about their favourite noodles :p

    And even at that time I loved it, and I’ll still love ya. So, be strong and believe in yourselves. And don’t forget I’m always waiting to eat your videos like a Nastie, to have a good laugh every week :p, no pressure!

    Kisses and hugs from an real Nastie

    And congratulations for your hard work until now! You guys have an Nastie friend here :)

  36. So I figured that you would probably do a bit of trolling on us and start off the regular KMM with an intro that made it seem like you were going to review the Eat Your Kimchi Like a Man video. Instead we got a whole KMM. That was funny. Especially at the end with the showdown.

    Oh yeah, and don’t think I didn’t notice the forced Meemers bombing with the laser. I’m side-eying you… but grateful for the Meemers video bombs anyway

    Even if this was the only KMM you guys uploaded for the week I would be happy! Why? Well, cause the *&%$** was hilarious!!! Really, I think you guys can make anything funny, I bet you could review the nian nian cat video or those weird pictures of pest in stockings and make it hilarious. Also, props for keeping a straight face throughout the entire thing, that takes mad skills.

    P.S This is for Martina, while delulu haters hate you can watch this for more K-pop English song covers http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RM8ZeW8nEu4&feature=endscreen&NR=1

    But the moment Meemers appeared I was totally distracted xD
    As for the MV itself I thought I was imagining things but now that you said the “girl from the video” was always the same with a different wig (lol, Ryan’s picture was on the screen) I feel reassured ;)

    The showdown question is a hard one but since I’m a girl who is into hot Korean guys, I vote for JYJ :P

  53. To Simon and Martina and fellow Nasties:
    I just saw these posts about what is happening. I felt really sad that there are Nasties that write hate comments and some that aren’t really true Nasties. I’ve known EatYourKimichi for more than year already, even though this is sad it’s reality. I just want fellow Nasties and Simon and Martina is that even though there might be haties out there,untrue fans and bad things going ’round, you guys will always have a bunch of people by your side. No matter what we will try to be there with you.
    Keep running towards your horizon! <3

If you watched the video and read the blog post you’d know the real KMM is being released later today, and come on it’s not lame I found it highly amusing watching this as they ripped into themselves. I especially loved the part where they “interviewed” Soo Zee. It’s nice to see them not take themselves seriously and continue to have fun and remain humble through everything.

  61. Yes they do, instead of just starting to complain. They should be thankful that EYK is taking the time to do 2 KMM, just because they know there are going to be people who complain. I would have been perfectly happy if this was the only one they did. Honestly, fans could have kept GD, Jay Park, or BTOB in the top three until next week if they really wanted to try

  62. Oh my gosh. You guys!!! lol, you totally got me! I thought for certain that this was the actual Kpop Music Monday (and I would have been totally fine with that) So when you announced that it wasn’t, I was just in total shock and feel like Christmas just came early ^___^ Two Kpop Music Mondays in one day?! ^___^ Yay! But, please try to get rest. You guys work too hard. I worry about you, you know?

    Anyway, as a professor of sarcasm, I thoroughly enjoyed this review. A lot of people I know don’t operate on the same level of sarcasm that I do, so I have to tune it down or I seem really rude. So I love watching your videos. Seriously. Like, this completely turned around my day. My day kind of needed turning around… I help teach some homeschooled students in my area and, well, one of them likes pointing out to me how pointless learning is and how stupid everything I teach him is… It was a bit much to take today. So, yeah, I’m super super happy to see this video!! Thanks Simon and Martina! <3 you guise. You do so much and I want you to know that I am sincerely grateful for it.

  80. People in this comment thread take themselves way too seriously. Real nasties love EYK and S&M because they’re themselves and hilarious at that. Why are who they chose for KMM so important to you? Seriously? KMM are a great online video segment of S&M giving their opinions on a music video with some funny skits thrown in. They won’t change the world of KPOP. If they pick one video over another doesn’t change how the fans of the groups look at their groups. You guys complain so much about who they pick instead of just enjoying the funny videos the EYK crew work so hard to make. I’m glad you guys are doing two KMM this week because that gives us TWO awesome videos to watch, and for no other reason. I would have been happy with just this one because I laughed out loud. Keep doing what you’re doing guys. Those of us that really care will stick around forever ;) <3 a devoted Nasty

  84. Hey everyone, I’ve been a Nasty for a long time now (before we even had the name Nasties). I’ve never posted on the site before because I have this irrational fear of communicating with people on the internet- my parents were super paranoid and pretty much beat it into me haha. But anyway, after reading the first few comments here, I felt compelled to say something.

    Guise. We need to take a few steps back here. I don’t know when we Nasties started developing this terrible attitude but lately it’s gotten worse and worse. Simon and Martina are two wonderful people who pour all of their time and effort into creating amazing videos for us. And we get to watch them for free! I’ve watched them build their business from the ground up and now they have their own studio and they’re interviewing Korean celebrities and being invited to YouTube events and it just makes me so proud.

    When did we lose sight of what EatYourKimchi actually is: two dorky goofs making silly videos about Kpop, the one thing that brought us all here and keeps us together.

    Seriously now, this hate needs to stop. I’m just happy coming to this sight and watching whatever they put out, because I love EatYourKimchi and I love Simon and Martina. Even if this *was* the only video they put out today, I thought it was hilarious, it made me laugh, and that would be enough for me. But they’re actually filming a second Music Monday (which is crazy, considering how much effort goes into just one) in anticipation of the hate that this video will receive, and that makes me extremeley sad.

    Come on Nasties. We need to straighten up and start being the respectful and intelligent fan base that Simon and Martina expect us to be. I know we can do it.

    • I think that the people who say stuff don’t matter. Isn’t there a saying (I’m really mushy) “those who mind don’t matter, and those who don’t mind matter”? You guys are awesome (NASTY) and I think that you shouldn’t let these haters bring you down. Because they don’t matter. 你們最好(^_−)−☆我愛你們。

      I’ll watch your videos no matter what. Don’t let them get to you; they’re too cowardly to say it in person, and they are just pessimistic. They’re bullies o_O. Stay strong guys ^^~~~.

      Much love from Ireland!!!

    • Haha we’re the same. I don’t post comments all the time and this is actually my second time posting a comment here. I’ve been watching S&M’s videos and an avid fan of Eat Your Kimchi since 2009(?), I think because I remember watching their videos because they reviewed GD&TOP’s songs and I’ve been watching ever since. I actually never thought I would be watching Spudgy videos and Meemer vids and I never thought I would be teary-eyed when I watched their tour of the studio. But it’s not like my parents told me not to comment like your situation, mine is because I watch the videos very late, videos posted about a couple of days already, so I think my comment is already unimportant like no one’s going to read anyway so why comment.

      Well, I think everyone just need to chill whenever S&M are not doing whatever they want and expect them to do. Why can’t we all be patient and/or appreciate whatever they bring to the table? As long as it is either funny or insightful or both, it’s good to go and we should appreciate it because they really put a lot of effort in it, it’s why I came here in the first place and I know it’s for others, too. And we should just learn from them. It’s because of them why I am very critical in listening new songs, though not so much with music videos my eyes aren’t very keen with MV’s yet.

    • irrational fear of communicating with people on the internet? Ohh how well i know this!

      we are in the same boat buddy.
      for the longest time i belived that when i post a comment somehwere on the internet gangsters would come to my house steal my money and kill me in my sleep :/ to my parents the internet is still a realy bizzar thing as well.

      other than that i total agree with everything else that you said!!! i’m a pretty new nasty but i’ve watched pretty much all their videos in a rush. I’m sick at the moment and they keep me greatly entertainted :) they are my favourite youtubers now!

      Simon and Martina hwaiting!

    • This is a wonderful comment, and I couldn’t agree with you more. So many people have lost sight of what EYK is really about. This elitist kind of attitude has developed. People take things too seriously, and it’ seems like they’ve forgotten how to just have fun and laugh. And that’s really unfortunate. But thanks to you, and all the rest of us nasties who support them, they’ll know that we love them, and that we respect their opinions even if we disagree.

      • It wasn’t exactly hate. It was more like people being ‘ disappointed’ in the video they chose to review. Then the whole thing got really angsty when ‘ someone’ posted on an EYK tumblr that they were unsubscribing because of the way the whole thing was dealt with.

        Honestly, the people who were complaining were not even necessarily the fans of the group that was not reviewed. They were just ‘ confused’ as to why Lee hi was picked over the others. However, it created a combative atmosphere on the website for a while.

        • thanks for the explanation. i dont visit their tumblr page, maybe that’s y i dont know what was going on. but seriously, i dont care which video they review, i will still watch it. i dont even vote on the kpopcharts (except for this video of course) knowing that the videos i like usually dont even get close to the 1st page, let alone the top 3 LOL.

          i watch eyk videos becos of eyk, i’m not into kpop to begin with. it was eyk that got me to listen to some of the kpop songs. i really hope they do jpop in the future as i prefer jpop music but have been lost touch for many years due to work (and laziness) =p

      I totally loved this KMM, I even voted for it….but not seriously. Mind
      you, I did see a shoutout on the EYK twitter to vote for it so……..
      it’s more like the power of Simon and Martina that got it to the top
      three, or well, I guess that indirectly that IS the power of Nasties,
      but then again what if unicorns were secretly wearing helmets all this

      • Great cartoon. Very appropriate! That’s EXACTLY why I’ve stayed away from forums for so many years.

        I love Simon & Martina! They are why I watch these videos. Their humor is just my kind of zaniness! Kind of makes me wonder if they grew up watching Mystery Science Theater 3000, especially after Simon mentioned Martina’s love of “obscure” movies! If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t know about all these great bands my daughter likes to listen to. I’ve even introduced her to some because of Simon and Martina’s video reviews!

        S&M are still teachers, after all. The classroom just grew more than anticipated! Hwaiting!!

          I have happily noticed that the last week’s videos have had more S&M interaction in them rather than just one or the other on screen at a time and it has certainly put a cherry on my enjoyment of them, so thanks S&M.

Simon and Martina seem like such awesome people and it’s clear that they and their interns work hard making such awesome videos for us nasties. I appreciate you guys for all that you do <3 and for the one who wrote this comment, you are awesome and completely right =] We should unite as nasties and support our nasty leaders <3….um if that makes sense?

    • Perfectly put! It saddens me that so many people are getting upset over something that was done for fun. I think I started watching EYK videos about 2 years ago? But I had gone back and watched every video because I was intrigued by S&M and it helped introduce me to more Kpop music that I had just started getting into more seriously. Come on guise why so serious? EYK is all about fun and exploring Kpop and Korea!

    • Could not have put it better myself. Thank you so much for posting this! Even as viewer, it’s been really disheartening to see the amount of negativity directed at them when they do so much amazing work and never fail to bring a smile to my face. I don’t know when some Nasties became so ungrateful for all the hard work and energy S&M (and SooZee and Leigh!) put into these videos and I would hate to see S&M stop making these awesome videos as a result. Their videos literally make my weeks better and, up until recently, it’s been so uplifting to be involved in the Nasty community and share in a love of Korean culture and Kpop with other people. Hopefully, we can get back to that same sense of community. I just really wanted to thank you for posting such an eloquent message (despite feeling uncomfortable) and send some love to you, Simon&Martina, and all the other Nasties that have been feeling the same way.

    • I totally agree. Just reading some of these comments makes me want to scream at my computer, even though that would do nothing. If these “Nasties” are so disappointed with Simon and Martina’s videos, why do they watch them? I love that Eatyourkimchi has so many subscribers and I love their work, but everyone’s getting so complainy and it’s REALLY getting on my nerves. It’s their videos which they started making by themselves, they didn’t make them for all the fans, and if you have a different opinion, then deal with it, there’s no need to send hate comments! Seriously, I wish we could all just be a happy nasty family! Guise?

      • One of the issues that we’re facing is that people are starting to watch us not because they like us or our videos, but because our videos are somewhat popular, so they view us as a promotional tool for their favorite bands. Not EVERYONE is like this, mind you, but it’s definitely becoming an issue.

Don’t overwork yourselves just to make more videos, I think the videos you put out already are great! Hwaiting!

    I was planning on avoiding the comment section for a while… because some people are cray-cray.

    Anyway, back to the vid… How can you be so harsh on the EYK band? Like for serious. Don’t you know how hard they work? They clearly are worked to the bone by their management company. And the low budget feel? Totally an artistic expression that you just didn’t understand. Ugh, totally going to rage about this on the various KPop forums on the interwebs.
