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. 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.

        • 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 :/

        • 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.

        • 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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 :) ).

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. Still want you guise to interview the Eatyourkimchi Crew! I just can’t wait. You got to interview Soo Zee , now interview the rest!

  7. Man that unicorn gets around. Unicorn? More like unislag amirite?!

    But a fun video guise!

  8. I love how you’re bashing yourselves. :) You guys are awesome.

  9. JYJ all the way! Although your parody was awesome!

  10. I think Spudgy needs a bath…he looks kinda grey…

  11. This is HILARIOUS!! XD Oh lord~ I love you dorks! :D

    p/s: I honestly love every single video you guise post. Don’t lose heart guys! Don’t lose sight of where you came from – being dorks! That’s why we love you!! :D

  12. OMG you guys had me rolling with laughter and I was at work! People thought I’d finally officially gone cuckoo. 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!

  13. 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!

  14. hahaha~ super hilarious! good job reviewing your video XD

  15. This has to be my favorite music monday ever. Mad props to the EYK crew!

  16. 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
    P.P.S. SHINee ON THE LAPTOP ERMAHGERDD YESSSSSS Yo haterz – why so serious? XD

  17. I VOTE FOR EYK CREW ALL THE wAYYYY man!!

  18. YESSSS!! What an awesome KMM!!! I can’t believe you got to interview one of the members of the EYK Crew!! I was so TOTALLY hoping that you guys would be able to give away CDs for this single, but darn! Oh well, maybe next time! Haha Time to go asking the EYK Crew to call ya’ll up to schedule an interview now 8D

  19. Love this KMM!!! Thanks Simon and Martina!

    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!!
    Just ignore those non-nasty comments, we will support you!!
    Lots of love from Australia!!

  20. Not gonna lie.

    I laughed so hard pee tears came out.

  21. *This is me, laughing so hard. Most excellent*

    Vote: EYK Like a Man. The Aaaayy, gurl! man offered to buy me a drank after he saw me rolling down my sexy windows, but my love of Kimchi won out in the end.

  22. As far as I’m concerned this is the only KMM this week. I hereby do not recognize the existence of a so called “other KMM”. Why would you need another when this one is so clearly superior?

  23. 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!

  24. 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.

  25. 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!

  26. 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 :)

  27. Psymon, I choose you! XD ——-> I mean, I vote for EYK crew :D

  28. Ooo I can’t decide who had a better low budget video can I just say it’s a tie?

  29. Darn… i wanna vote for EYK crew over JYJ xDDD

  30. 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

  31. Absolutely loved this. I was laughing so much that I forgot I was cooking lunch in the other room. I think I was about 2 minutes away from setting off the smoke alarm. Oops!

  32. k, go ahead and unsub. If you don’t like it don’t watch. You won’t be missed, trust me.

  33. EYK wins… nodoubt. thats my vote
