Kpop Music Monday: The Eric Nam Takeover

April 8, 2014


Share Post

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!


Make sure you’re subscribed to our channel by clicking this button here!

And just leave us your thoughts on Eric’s video. He suggested outfits, if that’s your thing, but we’re open to anything. Let us know what you liked! Eric’ll love to hear it, and we’ll love to give you a signed CD for your efforts :D


Make sure you’re following us on Twitter, and then retweet this link. Two button clicks! So easy!


Make sure you like our Facebook page by clicking the button here:

and then answer the same question in the Contest Thread, which you can find here!


Of course there’s a CD for you guise! Just answer the same question in the comment section below!

We’ll pick one winner for each category, and announce the winners next week in our Kpop Music Monday bloopers! Speaking of bloopers, of course we’ve got some from our shoot with Eric, including a scene of how we trolled him off camera (but really on camera!):

  7. So I missed the giveaway and may cry forever over that (haha just kidding, but I am a little sad. just a leeeeetle bit.) but I felt like saying stuff on the MV anyway because THIS IS THE COMMENTS SECTION AND I CAN DO WHAT I WANT. MOSTLY. WHEEEEEE


    Oh Eric Nam. How I love thee. and not even in a creepy way, in a “be my friend!” sort of way. (Also, weird thing – I feel like I saw a video of him singing I Won’t Give Up a few million years back and was all “hey, this dude is good. also good-lookin'” aaaaand then I more-or-less forgot about him. dammit. MAN I need to actually keep up on people.) However, I do have a few things to say about this video. Nothin’ personal. (alternatively, if I’m complimenting him, it can be personal. whatever you’d like.)

    1) I was definitely not expecting that first part, haha. I bet that was awkward to film. SERIOUSLY ERIC GET SOME PANTS THAT FIT. Was it born of a time where Eric was actually supposed to wear oddly tight pants and then his manager or someone was absolutely positive that “GUYS, THIS NEEDS TO BE IN HIS NEXT VIDEO.” ? The world may never know. fanservice gets sort of weird sometimes. also, lensless glasses are sort of weird but I’m always surprised at anyone who can pull off the super-round look. I think my brother had similar glasses when he was 5. moving on…

    2) Those sparkly champagne windows-movie-maker effects were cheesy as anything. (perhaps, even cheese. spray cheese, from a can.)

    3) I know Eric says he can’t dance, but aside from the ok-sign-hands and the “exactly how many people are inside of eric nam?” parts I think it was just awkward choreography. mostly, at least. I’ve never seen him attempt to dance.

    4) Thanks for clearing up that cologne-spraying thing. I thought he was trying to (or at the very least, was about to) recreate that scene from Elf or something. (anyone know what I’m talking about? n-no?) (that would have been amazing though.)

    And now for the things that I thought were cool –

    5) I like those dark-room (……public bathroom? sorry I just saw tiled walls) shots of him doing the dance alone. THAT LIGHTING. twas beau. (I occasionally break out into butchered french I’m so sorry.)

    6) I also enjoyed the shots of everyone being silly, and the…editing shots (I guess you’d call them? Like the shot of the horns on the camera, the editor working on the video, that kind of stuff. Now that was a cool idea.) were really really neat.

    aaand back to more random things..

    7) I feel like the concept for this is all over the place. Crazy but cool but jazzy (how I love me some jazz) but silly but weird-sexy but there are also puffed-cheek adorable shots and I don’t know what to say. That or there just isn’t a concept. That’s probably more like it.

    8) and finally, the question I’ve been asking myself this entire time – was this video half filmed in a strip club? What was up with that “pleasure need love” sign?

  9. I know I’m late but I’m still gonna say my fav outfit of Eric’s. it was definitely the black and white checkered suit with the shirt with splatter paint on the collar. It matched his shoes and socks and I think he looked looked really dapper (yes dapper) in it <3

  10. Eric Nam snapped 21 times. I think. I tried. Also my favorite outfit was the red blazer and white pants. Something about it just screams sophistication.

  11. first of all…i don’t know what it is about the pants above the ankles…but i LOVE them…they could be the ugliest pants in the world but if they’re above the ankle…swoon…
    i’m new to the kpop world (only been a obsessed…i mean a fan…for a few months) and i love me some Eric Nam
    love the good dance vibe from this song and i wish there was a dance version because his little dancing behind Hoya is adorable…i think i’ve watched this video at least 7 times just today!
    and Eric trying to put his pants on in the beginning is me just about every morning…

  16. nooo I hope I’m not too late!! My favorite outfit had to be the blue blazer with the mickey mouse hat! It’s really nice to see a kpop star who can communicate with his fans like Eric does! I been a fan of his since day one and it would be awesome if I could win those cds! Also, you guys (Simon and Martina) are so hilarious! I look forward to watching your videos every week and honestly I really want one of the ron burgundy rice thingies because i just finished watching anchorman 2! I really appreciate what you guys are doing because you are making korean culture fun and interesting for non korean viewers! Thank you for your hard work!

    Eric’s song, Ooh Ooh is so good I LOVED IT!!! The vocals were really good, especially during the chorus! I thought it was perfect. I also really loved all the outfits he wore in the video, they looked really good on him ^^ My favourite though was the navy-ish? and white striped shirt with dark blue blazer and white pants and shoes with the mickey ears <3

  19. The best outfit was definitely Fangurilla’s. What? She wasn’t in the actual MV? Pshh details~ This is one of the awesomest Music Mondays ever (and I happened to watch it in the middle of the night, which made it hard to laugh. But I did anyway. A lot.).Great job, guys <3

    I really loved this song and music video. I thought the song was fun and catchy and I know it will be stuck in my head for a while! The MV was really fun, the dancing was great and just and Hoya was really great as well. I thought the appearances from Kevin, Brad and Boa was really nice. Also, I liked the old comic book effects used through out the video, all the outfits were very classy, I especially liked the black and white shirt and the houndstooth suit. Overall I thought Eric and his management did a great job on this release and hope they know that their hard work is very much appreciated! I want to wish Eric (and Hoya) the best of luck for the live performances, I can’t wait to watch them!

    This was such a good KMM! I would have loved to know a bit more about what Simon and Martina thought of it but this was such a funny episode and appreciate the work that you have put into it! Those Mountain Dew chips must be awful…you guys are the best haha!

  25. My sister has been playing this song non stop for the last week.
    My favourite outfit is the first one. Just because I’d like to believe that it possible for everyone to wake up, button their shirt, pull up their pants, click activate some lights and be ready for TV. If I could wake up like that it would be a glorious time saver :3

  31. I loved Eric’s first outfit the most: the button down and jeans. It was average and is probably something he would wear on a daily basis. Also, who doesn’t love Mickey Mouse undies and polka dot socks? Other than that I enjoyed Hoya’s rap and Brad’s cameo. Ps: Those are some cute Harry Potter glasses Eric ♥

  32. First of all, I can’t belive that he snapped over 20 times, and that just in the final cut! Eric Nam’s poor fingers!
    All of his outfits were adorable and fashionable and showed all of his quirkyness, but I have to say my favorite one was the one with a red blazer, patterned button up shirt, and quirky socks at abouby 2:14.

    I love how he works so well with Simon and Martina. They are just so cute together and always make me laugh :) I hope they get to work with each other more often, especially since he will be making more awesome music! I really thought the mouth in dew chips trick was really funny and his face was priceless :D

  33. Sorry for my late entry, I was having problems with the internet… I liked the song, it really makes you want to dance! Especially the Michael Jackson reference(I see what you did there). About the outfits I have to say that the outfits matched the funky feel of the song. Mickey Mouse reference! hahaha! Really, underwear with Mickey Mouse first time seeing such thing in a kpop music video and the Mickey Mouse ears, so cute! No matter how stange the pattern is on a tuxedo, the tuxedo effect is high! I liked the first checkered(?) outfit, I personally believe that squares do not suit everyone but he worked that outfit. And about the music video, I could see some connotation used. I have not read the lyrics translated, but with the first scene and the neon words…connotation! hahahaha, I had fun watching the video, and geetings to everyone from Puerto Rico. OOH you so nasty!

  34. I liked when he wore the blue blazer with the shirt with the black red and white stripes. That outfit really gave me the ‘Eric Nam’ kind of feel… if you know what I mean…
    Other then the outfit, I thought the song was incredible, and I really found it entertaining that he was dancing, because I remember from the interview you had with him that he said he’s not a very good dancer… but ya know what? He is a perfectly fine dancer! Well done Eric Nam! :D

  35. I personally like Eric’s stripped t-shirt and dark blue coat, and his mickey mouse hat is suuuuuuper cute XD (mickey mouse hat…not underwear…I wonder why there are a lot of Mickey Nam here).
    PLEASE MAKE HIM A REGULAR! I love English-speaking Korean guy, and Eric Nam is gorgeous (I mean, can we talk about how lovely he is in front of the camera *v*).
    And also, Eric, instead of Simon you can kidnap me instead~ <3 <3 <3

  36. That´s my favourite musikc monday so far (that doesn´t have anything to do with eric, hehe-he) no for real, it was so hilarious! thank you eat your kimchi for giving us this present of eric nam as fanguerilla. Can´t barely hold it together even if I just think of it.
    and thank´s for letting us getting to know a different side of a Kpop idol. I think every nasty would agree, that after your various interviews with idols, we have a totally new view on them.
    Lastly, I hope eric Nam and eat your kimchi will in the future do something together, even though you guys poisened him with those mountain dew chips :P
