What’s this? A NON-G-DRAGON song for Kpop Music Mondays? Whaaaa? Congrats to F.T. Island with their video “I Wish” for beating out T-ara and Secret for this week’s Music Monday. Not sure if you’ll be happy with our review, though, since we REALLY didn’t like the video. Check it out if you haven’t already:


Please tell me we’re not the only ones that found this video boring. F.T. Island usually has really cool videos! We loved talking about Hello Hello and Severely. Those videos had sooooo much to talk about. So, when we saw that F.T. Island was voted in this week we were like “Awesome! Let’s see what goodness this video has to offer.” Poop. Nada. An emotionless girl dating all of the members of the band. She walks away from the Hunky One, and then he makes her touch his heart. THAT’S IT! Well, lots of shots of the band playing music. Great. We’re ok with band’s performing. No issue with that: but the rest of the video was just so ill-conceived and irrelevant. The best we could do with it is uncover the fact that she’s a brain-sucking zombie vampire. Other than that…ZZZZZZZZZ.

Also, I could be wrong, but do the lyrics seem really simple? Our Korean isn’t the best here, so help us out. From what we’ve read online, the lyrics suggest that he likes the girl a lot. She’s really pretty, and he really, really, really, really, REALLY, wants to be with her, and can’t think of anyone else. But that’s about it, no? There’s not really a message about love, or about life: just singing about how obsessed he is with the girl. PLEASE: IF WE’RE WRONG, LET US KNOW. We just didn’t see anything interesting in the lyrics, either, like we did in G-Dragon’s “That xx,” for instance (but, then again, we don’t really look into the lyrics of songs that often).

Otherwise, we’re still working on our apartment! Sorry it’s so barren. And it’s so echoey because it’s so barren. We still don’t have any furniture. We ordered something on Sunday, though. Huzzah! It should be coming in on Thursday. WOOHOO! Side note: Korean furniture is really…umm. How do I say this nicely: it’s not something we find appealing. Korea really needs an Ikea. REALLY DESPERATELY. Not that Ikea is the best when it comes to furniture, but it’s a lot nicer than 95% of the furniture we saw.

And, on that note, if you like FT Island’s song more than you liked their video, make sure to pick it up via iTunes or YesAsia. Also, we’ve got a few bloopers and extra scenes for this week, though it felt weird not having an actual skit. Hmm. Buuuut, Martina did get a bit carried away with Dr. Whatderhexerfrigginname :D



  2. This song sounds soo similar to that one song by train…. UGGH WHATS IT CALLED?!

  3. Jajaja I love the show down! Paradise vs I wish

  4. Is the girl from a group called AOA? looks familiar…

  5. I just realize the resemblance between this song and the one from Train – 50 ways to say goodbye. Someone else agree? I really like these 2 songs :)

  6. I think She looks good in that mustasch, bettter keep it eh?

  7. O_O Simon was really distracting!

  8. you are not reviewing them you are insulting them and us(PRIMADONNAS)

  9. Omg I am so distracted by Simon and his oh-so-nasty moves with the laptop. xD

  10. Five people watching one person is creepy enough, but seven is just disturbing. So my vote goes to Infinite.

  11. Boybands only have one girl in their video because all the guys are supposed to represent one person. I think it’s all from one person’s point of view, despite how many guys are singing. At least that’s what I always thought.

  12. martina… i’m really sorry but i couldn’t concentrate at what u’ve been sayin bcs of simon-computer-holder… xDDDD

  13. Even if ft.Islands video were boring, yours never seems to be <3 AND! I really want that picture of G-Dragon on my laptop as well!

  14. simon is the best laptop holder ever!!! LOL

  15. Martina, you look really really pretty in this video. I’m not even kidding. And your dress is perfect. ^.^

  16. So what is a man tiara called? That question was never answered! ><

  17. GD needs to win this week…no U-KISS!! TIME TO VOTE FOR CRAYON!!

  18. Going to vote for U-Kiss non-stop grrrr… ><

  19. That XX is an excellent song ..on ofcoz i would want GD to win AGAIN..!!!

  20. Gotta admit the video was boring and it cut to different scenes so fast the might have been having a seizure couldn’t focus on anything. The song however sounded awesome…of course this is coming from someone who doesn’t speak a word of Korean.

  21. Anyone noticed the grammar behind the bloopers video? Hehe…Silly!

  22. best bloopers with Martina singing and dancing around the apartment.


    Great approach on the MV. Yes, the MV is boring. But the song is good though. Not the best from them, but it’s FT Island. Can never be too bad. (Soft spot for them)

  24. YES. This song actually won this week. Super happy about this. It deserved the top this week for sure.

  25. Despite the fact you guys lack furniture, your personalities just light up your home anyway! Gawrshme, you two are just too epic for words. xD

    Blooper. Scenes. Were. Hilar. OMG Martina dancing to “Mr. Simple” made my NIGHT! Although I couldn’t stop laughing when Simon was exercising his “quadricepts” behind her with GD’s “Crayon” on the laptop.. Bwahaha, the hilarity~ Not to mention the sudden shift from “Mr. Simple” to “Lipstick”! You guys really want to review OC, huh? Please find time to review it anyway! We’re voting as hard as we can, but so many people (myself included) are getting their Crayon! xDDDDD

    Also, can I just say how ADORABLE Spudgy is? He’s just laying in his little Spudgy bed during your blooper scenes… Not minding at all that if there were a zombie apocalypse, Martina would steal his noms and he’d have to eat garbage… Hmm. Would Meemers then still have her cat food, or would that get stolen by a rabid starving K-Pop idol? I’m. So. Curious. YEAH~!

    Love you guise. <3

  26. And Infinite’s Paradise is the creepy one cos it’s slightly supposed to be

  27. Despite not agreeing with you guys in a sense that I am biased and I am pretty happy to stare at these 5 guys (instead of just the hunky one alone), plus I appreciate how they focus on the instruments at certain points to draw attention to the music. :D
    And regarding the girl’s emotionless acting. If you have to set high standards, yes her acting is not too great. Plus her make up/ bb cream reduces her facial expression, she just looks so pale and unhuman-like-ish.
    May be cos of culture difference you guys might not have gotten this, I think she was going for the subtle, sophisticated, not so showy with emotion especially regarding skinship with men like how a stereotypical ‘asian girl’ is supposed to be. Not like the poppy, cutesy, confident, modern girls as portrayed in kpop these days.

    On the other hand, I totally love the ‘she is human-meat hungry, alien’ theory, it’s so funny!! XD Especially the captions stuff going on… LOL

  28. “What’s this? A NON-G-DRAGON song for Kpop Music Mondays? Whaaaa? ” —>this made my day! LoL! dont worry MV crayon is next week haha both of you should prepare boomshakalaka! keke

    S&M is so cutee keke! nice hair martina love the dress!

  29. infinite is way creepier cause the one guy was on the floor looking up the girls skirt..

  30. dont ever let simon hold the laptop again.. i heard NOTHING Martina was saying All i saw was simon licking the laptop and gyrating ..bad idea! lololol

  31. SIMON!!! I´m disappointed, didin´t you guise clearly hear when the honky
    one ask fot “MUCHO QUESO” ???? commooon he and taemin can make a CF for
    a super cheese Doritos edition

  32. all I hear is ” dame tu queso, tirame tu queso”. which in spanish means ”give me your cheese, throw me your cheese”…. after someone pointed it out, I’m never unhearing it…

  33. It’s going to be hard , new GD song is so much fun,,, but love,love UKISS. Can’t wait for the new song hope its great, Hey do we need to mail you a table…. LOL

  34. ROFL! I was laughing so much when Dr. Whatderhexeerfrigginname called Simon “Shi-mon” xDDDDD That was HILARIOUS!! and the bloopers of Dr. Whatderhexerfrigginname dancing to Mr. Simple x3 so cute.

    Although…. I feel bad now… I feel like the MV wasn’t enought to err take something out. Indeed your review was really hilarious! With the explanation of Hyejeong being a brain-eater zombie x3 but yeah… T-T sorry S&M for voting non-stop for a not too great MV. Now that you mentioned it, I also think the MV was lacking a plot. Well I PERSONALLY loved the MV because it has so many close-ups on the guys (♥_____♥) lol which was actually all I was focusing on throughout the whole video and of course on the song. I have to disagree with your opinion on the song though. I personally loved it so much! and I think they put it together really well. Anyways, all in all, I still laughed so much with you video xD and Minari’s shirt WTF “I’m not a stripper”. xD Seriously where do they get these shirts! I want one like that xDDD I would proudly wear it letting everyone know I’m not a stripper. As a hardcore Primadonna I thank you so much with all my heart for still taking something out of this MV and made the KMM about FT ISLAND <3 I hope people will feel curious about their old songs and check them out :p (am I hoping for too much?)

    on another note: OHHH!! BRING IT!! I'm more than ready to vote for U-Kiss ! I really like their songs and videos, I can't wait to see it AND to see your interview *w*

    thanks again for making us Primadonna happy with this <3 love you guys

  35. I have to ask, why are your pillows on the stove and sink?

  36. I hear IKEA is supposed to open here in Korea sometime this year… *fingers crossed* Don’t forget, there’s also g-market for furniture shopping.

    On a side note, I’ve fallen madly in love with the guitarists of FT Island, and kinda wish they got more screen time… Oh, well…

  37. Is the really gorgeous one that is singing the same guy as Jeremy in the drama “You’re Beautiful?”

  38. All of infinite watching the same girl secretly is way creepier than all of ft island dating the same girl

  39. As soon as you said “sonic screwdriver” I fangirled all over the place! Doctor oppa, saranghae! <3

  40. I loved Dr. Professor’s explanation!

  41. oh S&M….you did it again. Made a spectacular KMM out of a boring video. How do you expect us to vote for interesting video if you keep this up? :p

    loljks, I loved it!! Hahahaha brain-sucking space alien!! IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW!!! o.O
    And funnily enough, my favourite part of the review is when Martina tried to bring over Dr. Whatderhexerfrigginname, who was, uh, obviously Martina in a costume….thanks for pointing it out Simon, I would never have guessed :p

  42. Did anyone catch the Doctor Who reference? :D

  43. I liked the song (for once), but I didn’t really pay attention to the video all too much ahha. I would only notice the band member scenes because I SUPPOSE… that was the most interesting part haha.


  44. love the outfit, Martina! p.s. all the boys in FT Island are way prettier than that girl, lol

  45. lol uh did the videos at the end not match up with their hands for anyone else?? haha

  46. irritablevowel

    I give the shirt a 5 out of 5 for making it clear that he is not a stripper.

  47. Braaaaiiiinnnsss!! I’M NOT A STRIPPER!… I was about on the floor with laughter!

    It took me a few listens to get into this song, but, now I like it. Although, I can see your point of view on it also. Great review!

  48. Korea doesn’t have an IKEA? That’s odd. I’m only saying this because I’ve seen the exact same curtains I have in my bedroom, which I bought on IKEA, appearing in at least two different K-pop videos. I always assumed they had IKEA there too.

  49. I had pretty much the same feeling about that mv. It was kinda boring. Would be much better if Orange Caramel or T-ara won.

  50. simon you are daring KissMes to break down your servers…
    challenge accepted!!!

  51. Martina, please do a tutorial for you hairdo today!!! pretty please :) with dogfood on top?

    • YESSSS I agree! i love Martina’s hair today! pleaseeee show us how to do it Martina ! and yes yes with LOTS of dog food on top! ^^

      • Yes!!!!! And where did you get the cute beret? Martina looked so uber pretty today!
        I had to rewind because i got distracted by Simon so many times.

        • Sandeul Baro

          I love the beret ! by the way its not a headband right? is it like a clip on one? ’cause i really love it and i wonder where you got it too! :D and yes i think most of us got distracted because of Simon LOL ^^

    • Yes, please do! You looked super cute… and I LOVE your headband! Did
      you get it in Korea? I’ve noticed they are popular in Korean dramas…Is
      there a great accessories store you buy them from, or do you find them
      at street vendors?
      (Yes, I can freely admit to my problem. Hi, My name is Melissa and I’m
      addicted to rhinestone, feathered, fluffy, super-cute headbands.)

  52. cant wait for ukiss >:B !!!!

  53. I laughed at the joke, but I’ve gotta say….alligators actually make it pretty obvious when they are displeased. Or hungry. XD

  54. How come I haven’t noticed that t-shirt engrish before? Not as epic as “f*ck me blind”, but still kinda WTF, especially “I’m not a stripper”. Well, the video would be a lot more interesting if Minhwan actually were a stripper. Definitely.
    Anyhow, I like this song a lot and Dr. Wathehexherrfriginaem’s explanation is awesome too! (not to mention the bloopers :D)

  55. Awwww yeah Doctor Who reference…

  56. The bloopers this week were especially funny!

  57. I was secretly hoping for queso (cheese) to appear. =3=

  58. They’re going to open a IKEA in Korea, but that’s like… in 2014 or something. But it is an unofficial IKEA store somewhere in Korea, I’ve read.. But Bangbae is a furniture district, I just read (I’m googling this for you:P)

  59. Hareem Siddiqi

    the laptop is sooo frickin’ distracting! i lik it though. anyways…go u-kiss!! i hope anyone who reads this comment votes for u-kiss!! cuz g-dragon (CRAYON WAS SOO AWESOME) can win the week after! so SO U-KISS!

  60. KATHyphenTUN

    I had to join in with martina in the bloopers. “Blow your mind~” *dancing*

  61. Am I the only one who thought FT Island kept singing “queso,” as in the spanish word for cheese in the chorus?

  62. I agree completely! I love FT Island ever since you guys did the Hello Hello review but this music video was not what I was expecting. I thought the acting scenes were unnecessary since there wasn’t really any context to it. But I LOVEEE the song!

  63. thank you so much for the reviewing ft island this week and putting so much effort into finding something to talk about when you guys must be really busy^^ I really enjoyed it :D especially since you changed the angel into a alien zombie hehe and I was literally rolling in laughter when you revealed that minari’s shirt said “i’m not a stripper” hahaha that was tooo funny :P

  64. I was so excited about your review for FT Island’s I Wish MV but I was a little sad for them because you guys did not like the video. I agree with you that there was nothing special about the MV but I disagree with you about the song itself; I love the Latin sound and I have the song on loop everyday (at least 3 to 4 times a day) on my ipod. However, as much as I love Hongki’s headband, he should stop perming his hair haha, it bugs me so much grrr!!!

  65. I had to watch the video a second time covering half of the screen with my hand >////< Simon and Martina with the laptop were distracting X°D

  66. This question is gonna err on the Captain Obvious side, but why didn’t T-Ara win for MM? It did get more votes…right?

  67. This question is gonna err on the Captain Obvious side, but why didn’t T-Ara win for MM? It did get more votes…right?

  68. martina, totally love your makeup an the way you are dressed

  69. I was super interested as soon as I heard the spanish-guitar sound in the beginning, but that quickly faded. For me the song was very blah.

  70. ALL OF THE DOCTOR WHO REFERENCES. My fangirl heart. Just exploded. Oh god. <33333

  71. Everyone remember, they are reviewing the video.

  72. PunkyPrincess92

    oohhh Martina!! you so FANCY!!!!!
    Simon….why on earth were you distracting me???? Martina was less distracting!!
    Dr.Whatderhexerfrigginname was awesome!!!

  73. Wow guys and here I thought Ikea furniture was crappy. I feel bad for you… no Leon’s, Sears or Ashley’s. No sturdy furniture… but I know you’ll live with it cause you love your viewers too much to leave them just because of crappy furniture. But at least they have really cutesy decals and home designs. :))

  74. i see that you guys still like to put the camera ABOVE you, which makes the shot look weird.
    Too bad :( You should try to look straight at the camera instead of always having to look up at it.

    • I think it looks better that way. Most professionally youtubers have their cameras angled that way.

      • i think that most of them have it angled that way because others do it too.
        Having a camera above you also makes you look shorter and “fatter” for some reason i’ve noticed.

        and it also makes me as a user feel like i am watching down on them, which makes me feel uneasy as when I usually talkt to or listen to people speak, i dont look down at them but try to be in their level. Perhaps im just used to being not tall enough to be able to look down at ppl lol

        • Shorter and fatter? Really? ._.
          My opinion is really different…
          You know when people take pictures angled from above because it makes them look better? I think it’s the same thing.
          Although I understand your point, I think a higher angle is better. If the camera was straight across, wouldn’t it seem like a news report?

        • perhaps it might seem like a news report, but at the same time it would be easier on the viewer’s eyes I think :)

  75. Simon is so distracting I don’t remember what Martina said !

  76. Martina, love your outfit, so so cute ><
    And ohmygoodness, I half-ly disagree with your review bc I loved the genre switch up in the song. It threw me off at first but it grew on me later.

    However, I totally had the same thought you guys had of the video when I watched it. I even laughed bc I knew if you end up doing this for Music Monday, you'd totally rip on it with it's 5:1 ratio of guys to girls lol

    So yeah, loved the song, was so disappointed with the video :

  77. Simon, Martina,
    She was not JUST ANY girl. She’s Hyejeong of AOA, and I’m quite sad you didn’t mention that. :( She also acted in A Gentleman’s Dignity.
    She is emotionless in the MV because she’s not interested in any of the guys. (in the storyline)
    …Also, the change to the chorus grows on you after a few listens.
    *Depressed you called Hyejeong a crocodile* T_T or a was it an alligator…

    • aoa’s seolhyun was in ft island’s severely….. they’re really using these mv’s to showcase aoa’s acting skills (or lackthereof)…. i haven’t seen a gentleman’s dignity, but i’ve been planning to so i hope she did better in the drama than this mv

      • I still don’t think we can judge her acting skills based on this MV, because maybe the personality of the girl she had to play WAS like that— emotionless.

    • Mmm… I don’t think it’s accurate to say that she ‘acted’ in AGD. Putting her, ah, somewhat dubious acting skills aside, her screentime on AGD was literally less than two minutes in one episode.

  78. You guise need rugs’n’sofas’n’fabrics!
    Us guise need KMM Lipstick :-(
    I’d love to see it on a Not-KMM-But-Random-Music-Someday-Instead… Hmm?

  79. I personally think Hongki is the brain-sucking vampire dude. Did you see him stare at her with that hungry, dead-eye look that the girl gave the others? I can see that they’re both brain-suckers and don’t even know it until Hongki holds her hand to his chest- TO SHOW HE HAS TO HEARTBEAT. @_@

  80. Dr Whateveridunnowhat made my day lol. Thank you for this review! I’m a FT Island fan (that voice and all that emo rock, what?) but yeah this song and video had me disappointed. In fact, the album disappointed me or maybe I should go listen to it again. Severely was so good tho. Yummylicious-I-wana-have-Hongki-in-my-room-to-sing-it-to-me-everyday good *whispers ~ and preferably rubbing his banana while at it* LOL

  81. it is not that i don’t like gd’s crayon but i vaited for u kiss’s stop girl and now i fill so sad because u kiss probably won’t be on the next kpmm. sob, sob

  82. guise you don’t know how excited i was for you to review this. i absolutely lovers all of FTISLAND’s songs especially this one so there was a lot of spazzy floor-rolling… *ahem*
    anyways, im gonna have to disagree with you. i think that the change in the chorus makes it really interesting to listen to, kind of like how the random verse change in MBLAQ’s “mona lisa” sounds like it’s from a different song, but the song is still fricking awesome. FTISLAND’s incredibly catchy choruses are like the FTISLAND trademark. after i listened a few times, i found myself jumping around and whipping my hair back and forth when the chorus came on (dont judge). the FTISLAND chorus is why people love their music, so it makes sense for them to play it safe and stick with it. maybe next time they’ll completely move away from it, which would be something id love to hear.

    but i totally agree. the video sucked.

  83. I think what you meant to say is….She(the girl in the video) has the emotional range of Kristen Stewert. Lol.

  84. “Trock” ah… like Time Lord Rock… if only I could make a Doctor Who reference…
    ~later~ “If only I had a sonic screwdriver” SORRY WHAT ASDFJKL. MARTINA ARE YOU A WHOVIAN TOO??? :D have you heard of time lord rock aka trock (on youtube by chameleon circuit)?

    • clearly all whovians must perk up at the words “sonic screwdriver”… that was definitely not a slip of the tongue…..

      a question that i have been meaning to ask: martina, what shows/dramas are you a fan of??? i’m a aware of simon’s love for breaking bad :3

      • OMG yes, definitely! The moment she said that, I actually stopped the video and replayed it to make sure :D … and then I had a dazed grin on my face for the rest of the video.

  85. I didn’t found the video as appealing as your usual FT island MV, and the song… meeeh, I kinda only liked the chorus, because the Spanish-ish guitars are something you get to hear a damn lot in mexico and well, I have friends that have ruined my love for acoustic guitars by playing them every-single-freaking-day at school, so, despite I was surprised by them, I didn’t found them like “woooow”.
    Uuuhhh… misheard lyrics FTW!! As I said on a YT comment, the chorus sounds so much like “Queso, quiero mucho queso” so I think of nachos with loads of delicious molten cheese teehee~ Hence it’ll always be the Nachos song in my head :B
    And gosh that T-shirt!! I did noticed it had lots of scribbles but I had no idea that there was a “I’m not a stripper” sign xDDDDDD (and for some reason I felt that I might have seen a shirt with that legend somewhere before, but I don’t know where… [I might have seen into the future that this was going to happen o_O it happens to me a lot])
    Oh, and I almost forget!! Martina, your hair is so freaking pretty!! You have definitely convinced me of dying it again for college :D maybe I’ll get purple hair, since I’m a brunette I guess that’ll fit better~

  86. You guys are sooo perfect! You’ve made me laugh aloud again!

  87. Martina’s Outfit was super cute..just saying. anyway i really like the song but compared to all their other mvs this one was just…ZzZzZ. the hunky one was looking very hunky as usual

  88. Korea have no Ikea? Gasp*

  89. Thank you for the funny video.
    I was wondering what you would say about the video seeing as it had again just one girl dating all members of the same band and I really didn’t want this to be as predictable as SM M/V’s with the oddly lit rooms, but you positively surprised me. I don’t know where you get the ideas, but I’m glad you can come up with such skits even in seemingly plot-less videos. And now that Dr. Wathehexherrfriginame (needed to pause the video at 3:29 to type this) has explained it I really see how dangerous the girl is. Must watch my back from now on, now that we know the secret of the aliens they will probably try to get rid of us first, so we can’t warn the others.
    *Note to self, don’t touch other people at all costs!
    And I really liked how you pointed out the engrish shirt, if it weren’t for you two we k-pop listeners would probably miss on such glorious stuff all the time.
    Thank you for the hard work and fun video, keep up the awesome work, but don’t forget to rest plenty too. ^ ^

    Oh, and I kinda know what Martina is talking about with the dog food. When I was 5 I ate the dog food of my aunts dog, granted it was dry food, but it was quite good. :D

  90. Oh my goodness. this episode had me laughing so much. I actually had to rewind a few times because of simon doing simon-y distract-y things behind martina and vice versa! Just amazing though.

  91. thisisjustforfunval

    Simon holding the laptop in the background was hilariously distracting, I couldn’t stop giggling. I loved your explanation of the video, because yeah I agree it was rather boring. I don’t think I’ve watched the actual video since the first viewing. I do however really like the song with it’s Spanish rhythm, it’s catchy and easily got stuck in my head.

  92. Yay!!! Typo blooper in the bloopers! I didn’t see that double whammy coming. Eg: “…and this is was Simon does behind the camera.”

  93. I refreshed this page likeee…100000+ times ,because I was soooo excited to see a music monday in your new apartment !As always, you didn’t dissapoint me, you are just awesomeee, I WANT TO BE YOUR FRIEND GUYS >.< !I could actually sense how tired you were,and I'm sooo happy that even so, you made the KMM.lovey lovey :*

  94. Isn’t the emotionless girl a member of AOA ? FNC’s new girl group ?

  95. Must say the guitar intro is sexay… but the rest is spot on.

  96. the simon laptop holder is so distracting that i have to watch the video to hear what martina is talking about… hmmm

  97. 2.50 mark is my favourite part… “if only i had a sonic screwdriver” are you two Doctor Who fans^_^?

  98. you guys got RICH or what ?? the apartement is WWAAAWW

  99. Trock is already a thing! TIMELORD ROCK!
