Kpop Music Monday: The Eric Nam Takeover

April 8, 2014

Eric Nam is back with another song after having gone SO LONG without one. It just came out today. Here it is, if you haven’t seen it yet:

And now with this Music Monday, Woohoo! Here’s something we’ve always wanted to do with a Kpop Music Monday! Ideally, we’d love to have different artists and bands come on for the show, and talk and joke about their songs and videos with us. uBeat did it with us a while ago, but it was a bit rushed. This here, though: this had a lot more planning in it. We hope you like it, because we’re totally chuffed about it.

It’s a little bit difficult to do these videos, though. Usually, when we do a Music Monday, we can watch the video over the weekend and plan out what we’re going to say. In this case, though, we started planning it long before we saw the actual video. When we were speaking with Eric, he hadn’t seen the final product, either. We had to base what we were saying just off the teasers.

We were, however, able to watch the video by the end of our shooting with Eric, as it had been emailed to him at that time. He signed in on our computer and downloaded the video, which – by the way – look at how honourable we are! We didn’t upload it and share it with the world beforehand!
Eric did, however, forget to sign out of our computer before we left, so we signed him up for all the pornoz sites we could think of. Ha! Just joking, Eric! You were already signed up by the time we got there. HA DOUBLE JOKING FOR REALS!

We asked him about the cologne scene, though. For real: who sprays their face with cologne? It’s just a bad angle, though. The camera’s perspective looks like he’s blinding himself with cologne, but it’s really just him spraying his chest.

Interestingly, you noticed the Brohoho brick room, of course, didn’t you? The same brick room that tons of kpop videos are shot in? Well, Eric told us where this was shot. We now have the address. Expect a news report about a freak fire accident soon. NO MORE BROHOHO ROOMS! This is what we bring to the Kpop world. No but for reals we won’t set anything on fire. I feel like Eric’s management might be reading this and not getting our humour and thinking “did we just send our artist to arsonist pornographers?” Ha!

Anyhow, as you saw in the video, we’re giving away a few Eric Nam signed CDs. They’re limited edition, can’t be bought in stores, and they’re signed as well, and we’ve got a bunch for you! If you want one, here’s what you gotta do!

  1. Eric Nam should be part of the EYK crew already, you guys get a long so well and your collaborations are always so fun to watch (I can imagine is even more fun to shoot them) :D

    Now back to the topic ~~ We waited soooo long for his comeback but it was totally worth it! It kinda has a Bruno Mars feel to it wich is great and much appreciated, something fresh for the kpop scene :D
    And also, I do have to admit that my favorite clothes in this MV were actually de Mickey Mouse boxers tho
    I’ll be looking forward to see more of EYK and Eric Nam together <3

  2. XD That was hilarious! Eric as Erica is the greatest thing ever~
    If I had to pick an outfit – I’m kinda bummed out it wasn’t in very long but, Eric looked good in his Harry Potter round rimmed glasses, jeans, light blue button up, poka dotted socks and of course the mickey mouse boxers. I choose this outfit cause he really looks good in blue and I know that feel with the jeans at the beginning ^-^’ It’s nice to see a more casual outfit on Eric every once in a while :)

  4. Wooow, I really enjoyed watching Eric Nam’s video (watched it because of this review) The editing is good and I was like: Wait, Hoya!? When the rap part rocked up (nice surprise huh huh) XD Really enjoyed the review guys, great to see more idols getting in with you :”) Also, i wonder how videos get leaked in the first place (like besides what Eric Nam did on your computer, I assume most idols don’t do that to other people ><)

    • I agree with Simon too, I like this song WAAAAYYYY better than his last one. It’s also good to see other idols in MVs. Makes me feel all smart when I know who they are (otherwise I’m like….. OuO)

  5. Hahahahaha this was great!

    Also, if Eric actually comes and reads these comments… Eric, your cover of Say Something with Boa Kim is AMAZING and is always on repeat in our house. Seriously it’s even better than the original.

    Love the blue blazer and white and blue striped sweater. I’m a fan of that kind of clean and casual kind of style.

    I actually got to hug him during his Myungdong fanmeet the other day, and exchanged some words with him. Having the signed cd would just be the cherry on the sundae of that whole experience.

  9. Omfg Erica, I can’t. Erica better be a thing now whenever Eric comes by the studio.

    If there’s one thing I really liked about Eric’s “Ooh Ooh”, I really liked how in the beginning when he moved his hands, he seemed to make the camera zoom in with him and how in the TV set scene, it showed the camera moving in and out on him like we were watching a tiny bit of a BTS along with the scene of getting his pictures done. Also I spotted Kevin & Brad! ;D

  10. Hello i’m FancyBacon, Is this where i’m supposed to comment? Oh well… I just watched your video and Eric Nam’s “Ooh Ooh” and i really enjoyed both. I have never entered a give away before so… I’m guessing this is what i’m supposed to do. Anyways I have been waiting for Eric’s video for a while now and it has finally come out! His music video is up beat and “danceable”, It’s just so fun. My favorite out fit would be his red jacket over the the really cool black and white patterned shirt along with his white pants.

  13. Favorite outfit has to be the black and white suit over the white dress shirt with the jeweled collar, finished off with bright yellow socks; love the detail!

    Favorite part of the MV was when the music slowed down and the room was really prettily lit. A really dynamic video, but not too busy.

  14. My favorite outfit was the first one to be honest it was just so funny how he just randomly pulled his pants up and he showed his tummy. So cute Eric! He’s just so ‘murican in that sense of YOLO and does things his style, not giving a damn about what others think. Grwat job on the KMM of this week as always !!

  20. My favorite outfit would probably be…The outfit with the navy blazer that had neon yellow accents. It fit the song so perfectly. The outfit looked so fun and bright, which is just like the song. I loved it. The song was so awesome! I cant stop playing it. ^_^

  21. My favorite part of the video was when Eric and Hoya were pouring gold dust everywhere. Perfect substitute for champagne. It was all glitter and Eric loves #glittervomit <3
    But I would hope he didn't eat any ;]

    My favorite outfit would have to be the black and white suit. Men in monochromatic suits are ridiculously charming. And Eric will forever be a lovable dork :]

  26. The best outfit is obviously the first one that Eric wore, which was when he was wearing the cute Mickey Mouse undies. (I sound like an old perverted lady) Oh well…

  27. I loved all the outfits, especially the suit type outfit when he first came out in the MV. He looked so sharp ~ but personally, this isnt in the video, but his Fangurilla, or should I say Erica was a great look xD

  28. Random other thought: what’s up with the mickey mouse hat that seems to reappear in kpop videos constantly? Is that the Mr. Brohoho of hats?

    • I wish we could! Some companies that we proposed this to, however, said that they don’t like joking, and they want more serious interviews and stuff. So we passed on those…

      • N.

        I don’t understand, I mean…seeing an idol being funny and joking is the best thing ever. I fell in love with U-Beat because of an EYK video and I love Eric Nam even more since he appears being so cute and funny in your videos.

      • Really??? Despite all the groups that has been on Weekly Idol?? I don’t get how the funnies are different in their eyes…. Like, if they can handle or agree to the “joking” and crazy on Weekly Idol, you guys are like on the same level, but just…. in a different way.

        2 years ago
      • So…if they don’t like joking, how come Weekly Idol is still running and airing on TV? =.= What they told you was clearly not true. :/
        Maybe companies don’t feel safe enough to allow their idols work with youtubers?
        Although, this is also quite irrational of them, as social media, especially one as YouTube is a good way to draw (international) attention to the idols.
        Also, there are many groups that have their own YouTube channels (BTOB, BTS….), which also post random FUNNY/JOKE videos. =x
        Maybe you should try approaching artists, that appear more open first.
        Who knows :D They might even change their mind after they see Eric’s takeover XDDD

        2 years ago
        • Yes, how come Weekly Idol is allowed to make the artists look foolish? Maybe because the MCs are inflicting it, then we naturally sympathize with our poor idols. If the idols did foolish things on their own, then people might criticize them for “not being serious” or “not good role models”.
          I find Weekly Idol irritating for the lack of respect, but apparently that show is acceptable in Koreans’ eyes. Anyone from Korea disagree or have other ideas about this? Thanks.

          2 years ago
      • NO JOKING ALLOWED HERE!! ::SERIOUS FACE:: Kpop is very very serious. Only. Always. Yes.

        2 years ago
      • Companies that don’t like joking are really missing the point. We want to see our idols be real and genuine and make a fool of themselves so we can connect to them. We want to feel like we really know them. Cold serious interviews can’t give us that.

        2 years ago
      • “Don’t like joking”??? Wow… that sounds like a sad life. “Wait did you just tell a funny joke that was supposed to make me laugh? Now I’m sad :(“

        2 years ago
      • Yeah I can kind of get that how that would happen. But I think it’s unfortunate because I reckon that’s how you can really reach out to international fans – we love funny! I already said this in my own comment, but props to Eric for being such an awesome sport. I, for one, am now officially smitten.

        2 years ago
        • I agree one of the best ways to reach out to international fans or just people in general is through humor and laughter after all laughter is kind of sort of an international language isn’t it. Isn’t it?

          2 years ago
        • Not necessarily. Humor is a very cultural thing, so what people might find funny in a North American audience, people in a Korean audience might not find funny at all,

  38. Favorite outfit: the polka dot slippers and Mickey Mouse underwear. :D…
    Oh, you were wearing other clothes in that scene? …
    *cough* FANGURILLA AND THE FANFICTION MOBILE WERE ALREADY ON THE MOVE. SORRY NO OTHER CLOTHES EXIST NOW.

    In all seriousness, so glad Eric Nam is back. Loved his debut, loving him on the Afterschool Club, loving him in the EYK videos, and loving this song. :D YAY.

    And I think I spot a little Busker Busker Brad? Checking to see if his zen techniques are being used properly, hmm? :)
