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…

  1. 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.

  19. 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

  23. 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!!!

    • Yes Yes Yes.

    • 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.

    • wait. there were hate comments?! i guess i didnt read enough comments to see the haters. i thought the community (nasties) here are pretty nice.

      • 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.

        4 years ago
        • 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

    • Saw this the other day – totally relevant:
      http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=2939#comic

      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
      time…..

      • 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!!

        • Me too! – on pretty much everything you said….except I have a son ;) I also wanted to say that I think they do take constructive criticism well, just not screaming biatches, and let’s face it, we all hate those. Getting so seriously caught up in the voting is a trap.

          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.

    • Thankyou for saying what we all feel =] The hate is unprecedented and needs to stop. People don’t have to like everything but their lack of respect is appalling. 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!

      • I know.what you mean. I found out about them threw my friend, while we were going and looking for puppy videos. She stumbled onto EYK and I loved them.ever since. I have only known them since last summer. But I feel like I am part of family. A silly fun crazy.Awesome family

    • 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.

      4 years ago
    • 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?

      4 years ago
      • 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.

I know that you’ve said that you’d like to make even more videos, and that you have tons of ideas but not enough time, and I get that (it happens to me with stuff too :P) but I hope/wish you’ll still find enough time to rest up! 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.

  37. So you’re one of those trolls who didn’t watch the video until the end to find out that the REAL MM will be uploaded later today. Seriously, if you can’t take a joke, you shouldn’t call yourself a Nasty. S&M don’t need fans like you.
