Now wait a minute! Wait a minute! Before some of you start yelling at us, or crying at us, or mumbling at us, about not doing Itaewon Freedom, believe us when we say that we’re really upset about it as well. We love that song. It’s hard for us not to say that it’s not one of our favorite videos of the year. But we made a promise when we started the voting system that we would honor the votes and do them justice. We want to encourage you all to take part in these vids as much as possible, and so it’d be just wrong for us to take the majority vote and toss it because we like another video better. We’ll only refuse to do a video if we really strongly dislike it, or have something against it, but that hasn’t happened yet. If we like the song and you vote for it, then we’ll do it, even if we like another song or video more.

And we’re really strongly opinionated when it comes to online polls, if you couldn’t tell by our post on Rain being snubbed by Time magazine. So, long story short, you vote we choose. In fact, we almost did SS501’s “Love Ya” this week, because – for some odd reason – we received a massive influx of votes for the song, even though it’s quite old now. Hmmm. There must be some fan group out there behind this…

But f(x) won this week. Huzzah! Because we actually really like the song. “Dah Duh Dah Duh Dah” may not win awards for lyrics of the year, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not catchy as hell! On that note, Nu Abo had “NANANANANANANA” as it’s chorus. Is there a pattern forming here? How many other f(x) songs have sounds for lyrics? Anyone?

Also, err, umm. What’s the song about, really? We looked at the lyrics online, and this song supposedly says something along the lines of discovering a guy, and they’re interested in him, and they’re worried for themselves because they like him so much. That’s our best guess. But what does that have to do with Pinocchio? The puppet whose nose grows when he lies, or the puppet who wants to be a real boy. Are they interested in a guy who’s a liar? Or, even weirder, are they interested in a guy who wants to be a real boy…instead of a fake one? The possibilities with the second option are…intriguing. And since when did Pinocchio have Mickey Mouse ears? Who knows. We’re quite confused. We’ll sing the song and Dah Duh Dah Duh Dah around the house, but we’ll have no clue why…

And, yes, for the record, we are in fact six years old, because farts are still funny to us. Call us immature if you like, but for the rest of our lives we will find farts humorous. We totally see ourselves at 90 years old, hobbling down the street, hand in hand, while our other hands are holding our canes, and giggling whenever we hear busses make fart sounds. Sorry if that’s not your style of humor. FART JOKES 4 LYFE!

A few side notes: we were lucky enough to attend the Super Inkigayo event in Jeju last weekend. Our video for it will go up later this week. We posted a few teaser pictures on our Tumblr page, so check that out if you’re curious, or ask the people over at the Jeju Weekly if you can’t wait :D We were lucky enough to speak with Amber from f(x) while we were backstage, and we aaaaaaalmost got her to do the intro for this week’s Music Monday. She was down for it, but management said no. Understandably so, because they didn’t know who we were. For all they know, we could have been asking Amber to say something that would ruin the band’s image, so it’s better safe than sorry. Even cooler, though, is that she said that she knows our videos, and used our Korean Washing Machine video. Booya! But that’s all we’ll say for now. Stay tuned for the full video :D

f(x) Pinocchio Album CoverAnyhow, because Amber was so nice to us, and also because she told us that she wouldn’t get offended by our Music Monday when we warned her about it, we’re more than happy to tell everyone to check out f(x)’s New Album by clicking on the picture to the right here. It’ll ship internationally, so you’ve got no excuse to not buy it. Shazam! And lastly, thanks to Ophelie from Miku Collection for giving Martina the awesome, awesome shirt when she visited from France. Yay! French clothes!

  1. hahahaha!!!
    i am agree with your review about f(x)…
    and btw i choose JYJ even i know their music video is bad~

  2. My vote is for JYJ for sure I love them to much

  3. FX! also, next time could you ask them what is the fanclub’s name?

  4. Of course its definitely, absolutely, FTW…. JYJ:)

  5. JYJ JYJ JYJ JYJ JYJ :DDDD

  6. Lol you guys are awesome!!! (hi from Australia!) am very new to your blog, and just wanna say I love it! Love love love.

    I vote for JYJ rolling down the window. It’s a funky move that can be used a fair bit.
    Hmm I might just make a point to do so next time I’m confronted with a nightclubscene just the same! Ha ha (high fiveeee!!!)

  7. F(x)’s sexy car dance!!!

  8. Ahhh, I vote for JYJ! Rolling down car windows in frilly aprons is an epic win.

  9. jajajajaj no es la canción de la mascara????
    of course JYJ!!

  10. AMBER!>? Did you interview her?

  11. Oh man! What is one of those comments on the old video is from Amber!? I am so jealous, you guys get to meet the rich and famous of Kpop! Let me be your gopher or something xD PLEASE!

  12. Vote F(x) Washing Sexy window!

  13. Another vote to just go ahead and do Itaewon Freedom but not as part of Music Monday.

    Like somebody else said, because of the fandoms it will be really hard for videos by acts such as UV to get enough votes to beat out the likes of Big Bang, JYJ, Girls’ Generation, etc.

    Also, curious if you guys listen to stuff on the more indie spectrum of things, like my current favorite “소년은 달린다” from eniac:

  14. I REMEMBER THAT SONG :D Chik chiki boom

  15. You guys should just do Itaewon Freedom, but not as a Music Monday video, just do something else with it =] Maybe make it a 3-parter series, haha.

  16. For Amber!!!!
    F(X) for me

  17. JYJ :)!

    But I must admit that Martina’s was pretty awesome… Lol

  18. Please do like a special Music Tuesday or something for Itaewon Freedom. It’s nice that you guys are following your rules but with all the kpop fandoms it will be hard for a nonpopular artist to be featured even if they have a very very interesting MV like UV’s Itaewon Freedom

  19. gawd…I’m so loving this vid…I keep watching it.

    Martina: “Ayyyy boy…kin I buy yu a’drinkk?” that urban-accent just makes my day. lol

    Although I’m thrilled that you guys will be moving to ‘tha Big City’…I have to admit that I’m going to miss your officetel’s *Club Corner*. So many famous dance moves have taken flight from that tiny spot in your home. It gives a whole new meaning to ‘mini-bar’. :)

    • There’s a good chance that we might not move into the big city because it’s too expensive. We’re looking for places in Bucheon as well :D

      • oooo~ bummer. But I must admit, when researching the average housing cost for Seoul and I was *stunned* by the size vs. cost. I mean, when roughly 600sq. ft. is almost $2,000 USD per month – that’s INSANE. However, as was mentioned in emails – it could be possible to get a 3 bedroom house for around the same, depending on location. Have you considered having a roomate for a 3-bedroom and then split the bills? A quiet college student perhaps?

  20. You guys should just make a video for Itaewon Freedom on the side. Doesn’t have to be Music Mondays in-depth style and everything, just make one about it because you love it and we love it and the internet demands it.

  21. JYJ! ….Su is so hot…sexy chef…mmmmm…

  22. Rolling down the sexy window! :)

  23. Oh my god! The scary balloon scene made me laugh so hard i nearly cried. Love watching these videos early Monday mornings!

  24. I read an interview, and apparently the Pinocchio bit is supposed to symbolize getting to know a crush but putting the pieces together; like building a Pinocchio doll. I guess it kinda makes sense in that way….kinda

    Since I’m not familiar with JYJ, my vote goes to F(x)~. I’m really jealous that you guys got to meet Amber!

  25. Lol of course a boy would think the pink things were farts lol. And yes girls now can fart pink bubbles or whatever. I lol at Simon getting traumatized by the pink balloons.Good thing you didn’t have any real kids there lol. As for the poll I vote for JYJ. Just because they look sexier doing it to me. :-p

    Oh and I saw on tumblr where Martina got to interview GD. Yay! Congrats Martina. I’m sure Simon had to have a bottle of water there to keep you from fan girling lol. Did you get to meet Tabi?

  26. Oh god you interviewed Amber too! really you guys are too lucky!! =D

    and I vote for JYJ!! well just because I love them moarrr! XD but that rolling muh window really work on me for weeks LOL

    really can’t wait for your Super Inkigayo Video!! =]
    takecare <3

  27. Of course JYJ’s rolling down their sexy windows!!!!!! Thinking of Yoochun’s red Ferrari, Junsu’s white Maserati and Jaejoong’s opaque black Audi R8 *nosebleed* yes definitely they should win !!!!

  28. thanks for the video on Monday, thanks for talking about f (x) as Mexican fanclub gives us great joy to know who won in the voting to be tested by you!
    and of course the English is excellent, having a small Krystal and Amber!

  29. Oh damn… I like both dances.. mmm I vote for f(x) and I’m going to dance ayy girl LOL~
