Hi guise! And welcome to the new comment system on Eatyourkimchi! We hope you like it. Let us know what you think in our new comments below! But first, we’re gonna talk a bit more about Infinite’s “Last Romeo” for this week’s Kpop Music Monday! Check out the video if you haven’t seen it yet:

Ok, so we adapted a symbolic approach to watching this video, and we saw it all as representing trapped gas. Because that’s how we roll. Because, otherwise, we would have been too frustrated with this video. The whole reaching through the bookshelves scene made us scream in frustration. WALK AROUND THE DAMN SHELF! The girl does it a few seconds later! Don’t just fall to the ground and cry like a…nevermind. Or push the shelf over! Hot damn what’s wrong with you boi?!

And then, at the end of the video, when he’s in the room and the earthquake hits, instead of him hiding under a desk, he gets a really bad headache and starts yelling. Books explode into the room. He still yells. Books explode very slowly. He yells very slowly. Yells until the world dissolves and he’s just goddamned floating on a steam cloud and flailing around. He dies, still floating on the cloud. What the hell is this crap? Must be farts. That’s the only answer I’ll accept.

Sad thing we cut out from this video because of a fake fire: we had something along the lines of “Why did Infinite get such a low budget movie? Weren’t they just bought out by SM? Oh…wait.” Ha! No KMM is complete without a jab at SM :D

And another thing: please, more lip rubbing. The 10 seconds spent on rubbing your lip while singing wasn’t ridiculous enough. Your hand should be pulling on your lip for the entirety of the video. More lip rub = more successful video. Ok snark aside, whoa, that was pretty ridiculous.

For this week’s poll, let us know what blue moody clocky video you preferred:

So yeah! That’s it for this week’s Kpop Music Monday. We’ve got a few bloopers, but not as many as we would normally, because we couldn’t film the skits we had planned. Check em out if you’d like to see us be a bit more silly:

  1. After about an hours wait for the registration email to come through I can comment!

    Anyway, I wanted to mention that I really like this format of KMMs. Sometimes less\no skits is good because we see more of you giving your thoughts. You still made it fun even without the skits. So I guess my point is that I don’t want you to think that you have to rely on skits to make KMMs interesting or funny. You do that just fine with out them.

    • Heya! I think I know why it took so long: our server has a limit as to how many emails it can send out an hour. Because of the new commenting system, lots of people registered for the site, and we broke that limit. I’m thinking things will slow down after a while and then email send outs will be back to normal. Sorry!

  4. Guys why did you stop reviewing the english in KMM it’s one of my favorite segments :/ I hope you can review UKISS or VIXX, both really interesting and special in they’re very own ways xD

  5. They had to cut out all of Myungsoo’s scenes involving water because of the Sewol incident, and so Woohyun ended up being the main character. They did the best they could with what they had I guess…

    • They had to reshoot the whole video because of the Sewol incident. Infinite just seems to have problems with their newer videos. First, Destiny and the planes. Then Last Romeo and the Sewol incident.

  6. Guys, I loved the Infinite song part! I was right along there with Simon saying that song never existed. What…no I didn’t acknowledge anything, I don’t know what you’re talking about(*whispers* it never EXISTED). Anyway best plot ever apparently I just couldn’t make sense of it before.
    Oh yeah, U-KISS-oppa will win!!!!

  7. Spugy – the Taken Monologue. That was priceless BRILLIANCE! I can’t remember laughing so hard.

  8. I laughed so hard at the “taken” reference, if I’m not mistaken…. Well I’m actually 100% that I’m correct because I was obsessed with that glorious passage… But Spudgy’s version is much more betted! XD
    Oh also the meems believe in your dream shirt looks amazing! ^^
    Nice KMM… Thank you for always putting a smile on my face, especially after a rough day… ^^

  9. Even though I like “Man in love”, I laughed a lot at that part. Ah, yes. The “My dirty socks D: Oh no, my SPECIAL sock!” Favourite. OMG, the old segues :D Hey, I thought you’d put U-KISS versus VIXX, but I guess this works too. Yay, Spudgy ~ *Cough* ANYWAY,I loved the set and the start was kind of cool (?), but maaaaan, the video. No. I would like to see someone other than Woohyun in the spotlight though, since he got his “share” in ToHeart. Or is this a way of promoting that? I dunno, but nothing against him. He’s a cool guy (I hear).

  12. I went thought everything I could to be able to watch this (YouTube’s been pissing me off) and i am now watching the KMM on a four or five inch screen. I love this song, and I agree, what the hell was up with the reaching through the bookcase? It frustrated me.

    I will never watch this MV the same way again XD

  17. The fart joke had me laughing out loud :) And, although I really liked the song, I disliked the MV and hated their style. All I kept thinking was, Man it’s been a long time since I crocheted something, just look at those aunt-Edna-goes-to-a-wedding-jackets.
    And yay for new comment section!!!

  19. To be completely honest, for me personally this song was a bit of a let down. I loved Infinite’s past songs and I was really looking forward to their comeback but the song paired with the video was a bit too overwhelming. I felt like I couldn’t really focus on the song which is a shame, there was just too much going on in the video. I like the song…I just miss the cool jump-up-and-dance vibes that The Chaser and Be Mine had.

  20. Huhu.Did you guise know that Woollim promised us a dance practice video if the official MV had surpassed 2,222,222 views by 01 June? What do you think about this kind of promoting?

    2 years ago
    • I think they took that Marketing strategy from SM. Apparently SM Wouldn’t release the dance practice video For snsd mr. Mr. if the video didn’t 15 million views. In my opinion i think its bull. The fans already buy the album and watch videos and support anyway they can. To do some kind of ultimatum like that is disrespectful to the fans. Release it or don’t release it but don’t use fans like that.

    • How do you people know stuff like that? Is there some magical source of information I should know about?
      I’d really appreciate it if you could tell me.

  23. Considering that I don’t listen to Infinute, as I am stupid for not listening them. I really liked this song. It sounds something I would have listened some time in the 90s. Nice Kpop Music Monday :)

  24. Loving the new comment section :3 Definitely not my favourite Infinite song/video ever, but, I mean, it could be worse. It could be a lot worse. *sigh* I think I just prefer watching Infinite dance anyway, to be fair.

  27. “they try to maintain a long distance relationship between the bookshelves” hahahaHAAAHAHAHAHAH most epic retelling of a MV plot ever, I haven’t laughed like this in a while! (unrelated note: I like that the comments show what I assume to be Korean time, S&M up at 4am :O)

  28. I very much enjoyed the video. I didn’t think much of the plot. I thought the video and song really complimented each other in feeling. This whole album is good too. Y’all should listen to 숨 좀 쉬자, 나란 사람, 소나기, and Light (Sunggyu’s solo song). They’re all really good though…

  31. Another great Music Monday, as always, but I think the best clock video was Vixx Eternity, even though it is not present in this week show down. Then of course since UKISS’ song is called tick tock and is about being out of time I guess Ukiss WINS! Yay!

  32. So is Woobin someone’s “Last Romeo?” It’s Simon, right? Woobin is your “Last Romea.”

    Silliness aside I’m seeing this commercial instead the MV. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ijsU_WO5gQ

  33. I hope that the special KMM is with Ukiss because they just released a new Music Video, “Quit Playing”.

  34. 1. of all, nice new comment section *thumps up*
    2. What i actually wanted to say that it took me around 5 seconds into the mv to realise that it was 100% an infinite song
