Infinite “Man in Love” – Kpop Music Mondays

Guise: we haven’t enjoyed making a Music Monday this much since we did Super Junior’s “Sexy, Free, and Single.” Oh man: we love this video so much. If you haven’t seen this masterpiece yet, check out Infinite’s “Man in Love” here:

Ok, so usually what we do for our Music Mondays is we write out a bunch of stuff, then move it around into some order that makes sense, and then try to polish it up with transitional words and phrases and fix the delivery on some of our jokes, and – for parts that we can’t fit in – we cut those out and put them into our blog posts. Today, for Infinite’s “Man in Love,” we’ve got nothing for this blog post at all – nothing from the script at least. We just couldn’t cut any of it out. We just loved talking about everything. Sorry if this Music Monday was too long as a result. We just couldn’t stop ourselves. This was the first Music Monday in a long time that we just flat out had a lot of fun doing, and didn’t work exceptionally hard at (though, we did work a lot longer on this Music Monday, because it’s almost 5 minutes longer than last Music Monday). We just saw the video, laughed with each other, imagine ridiculous skits, and went wild.

Yes, we know a lot of people are gonna be upset that we said the song wasn’t good. So what! There are songs we like and songs we don’t like. We can’t like everything Kpop has to offer! We loved U-Kiss’ “Standing Still” but we were destroyed by the blandness of the video. This week, we found the song not to our liking, but loved this video with all our hearts and souls. It’s so special! And we speak about this video with a special fondness. It’s almost like Super Junior’s “Cooking Cooking” and TVXQ’s “Balloons.” It’s that level of special. It’s like Infinite were like “well, now that we’ve got some of the cheesiest 80’s music out there, why not make a super cheesy video to go with it?” I’m predicting that they’ll stop using widescreen soon and will just tape everything on old Sony Handycams from now on. And moustaches. They must grow moustaches. By the way, “cheesy” is not a bad word. Cheesy’s fun and enjoyable. I’d rather watch a video that makes me feel good than watch one that frustrates me. This…has so many good feels in it that I cannot compute.

So, we’re scrubbing through the video now as we’re editing it, and HAHAHAHAHA OMG we just noticed something new. At the 2:17 second mark, when he picks out his shirt, slow that scene down frame by frame, if you’ve got the time. He throws his shirt onto the chair, but misses the chair completely and it falls to the ground. Like, it barely even hits the chair. It’s like he air balled on a layup. Another reason for us to love the video.

And how about the fact that the cat is totally misunderstood. He’s not signalling his preference in your outfit. He’s got a frustrated look on his face because he needs to poop. Did you even get him a cat litter, or did you just use Pickles the Cat as your own imaginary personal valet? Yes, his name is Pickles the Cat. I just made that up, and it’s gonna stick!

Ok I gotta stop. NO WAIT THE FLOUR BLOWING SCENE! WHO BLOWS FLOUR LIKE THAT? How’d he get flour everywhere? Must have been a result of his special apple recipe. Ok I’ma stop. Thank you for watching my video and reading my blog post. This concludes my happy talk on this happy video:

However, if you like the song more than we do, you can pick it up via YesAsia or iTunes (whenever it comes out on iTunes). Also, we’ve got bloopers for this week’s Music Monday (obviously!) in which we do our best rendition of Pump Up the Jam. It works for every instrument!

  1. He is in love with Woohyun so he creeps around to find more about him and to touch things Woohyun touched…and then baaaaam,his love interests shows up unexpectedly so he runs away…you know how that goes…#truestory

  2. I agree with you: this song is full of cheesy 80’s synthpop- which is why I love it. I love overprocessed 80’s pop, but I also know that I am a minority, and this video was crazy hilarious.

    My vote: Dongho. At least Sungyeol knew he was alone, although I did hear a rumor about him and the fridge.

  5. Somebody bought Hostess…The Twinkies are coming back…

    3 years ago
    • Hostess was bought out by Flowers Industries about 48 miles from my house. All the bakers got to keep their jobs but the delivery guys (whose contract basically bankrupted Hostess, twice) were all fired. Sweet Justice.

      3 years ago
      • I was under the impression that the previous management (Some venture capital company) bought Hostess and then borrowed against the employee pension funds (that all hostess employees were contractually obligated to pay into) and then attempted to renegotiate with the unions to permanently eliminate the pensions they had already spent their careers paying into…

        At least the bakers still have their jobs…and people still get their Twinkies! :P

        3 years ago
    • I’m not sure if the employees themselves were bought along with the intellectual property and company capital…

      But yeah that Hostess debacle didn’t end well…

  7. there is a slight difference between saying a song is not good, and saying you don’t like a song tho ^^
    honestly i was at first kinda disappointed. i wanted an epic Infinite comeback (too) (i’m sure i’m not the only one) and here they were with their pretty lover boy concept.
    but somehow imo Infinite did pretty great by being able to pull that image too.
    i’m a huge b.a.p fan but their cute-pretty-aegyo image era was a total disaster for me. it just didn’t… fit and work. at all. at least not for me. But with Infinite, although i love their powerful image way more, i didn’t think it was (that) awkward and it didn’t make me cringe or anything. So for that i applause them.
    I wasn’t too sure at first for the song but it grew on me pretty fast and in the end the chorus is super catchy, no ? And i actually love 80’s music sound and style so, nah, i wasn’t bothered by that neither.

    my vote goes for… eeeer… hmm… Dongho. His case is way more serious than Sungyeol imo.

  9. This k-pop music monday made me laugh like there’s no tomorrow. I feel like u guise have been doing serious stuff lately or something, idk is it just me? It was so refreshing! Sighhhh of happiness. Monday just got so much better.

    I vote Dongho. Sure, Sungyeol was pretty insane with his cutting apples, dropping them on the floor then eating them and sending messages to himself, but Dongho was just…. crazy. Dating a dialtone? At least Sungyeol is real. And forever alone. Dongho is not forever alone. Just crazy.

    I think liking the song is a personal preference, but it also grows on you. At first I was like MEH sounds 80s, but now I like it. A lot.

  11. Isn’t it terrible? I didn’t find out until it was too late. All the remaining Twinkies in a 100 mile radius from my house were sold out. Give me back my favorite unhealthy childhood snack! T_T

  14. I honestly have to agree. Man In Love isn’t a favorite. It felt a tad bit… boring, I guess. It didn’t catch me like other Infinite songs. But damn, was the MV cute. They’re safe because of the adorable MV.

    Just a thought… Gyu showed up in Myungsoo’s segment, Yeollie showed up in Woohyun’s segment, and Dongwoo showed up in Sungjong’s segment (and poor Hoya was all alone XD)… Were they hinting something?

    Also, I vote for Yeollie. Dongho just seems more heartbroken and unable to get over his loss. Sungyeol… I’m not even sure he has one. Plus, who blows the flour around on the table? Or cuts apples for a recipe that doesn’t require it? Or writes love notes to himself? Yeah… Sungyeol takes the cake on that one. XD

  15. I think Dongho wins this one hands down. He was just straight up delusional and crazy whereas Sungyeol is just a horrible pastry chef that puts inspirational notes for himself in (apple flavored?) fortune cookies

  17. your KMM is as usual wonderful.
    I tried to laugh silently because the rest of my family is sleeping already :)
    but I couldn’t :)

    btw, I like the song very much… I often catch myself on singing “Namjagan sarang halte” during the day :)
    but… you know, everybody has right to own likes and dislikes, isn’t it?

    thank you very much for this happy-therapy – it was really needed [it’s nearly April and we still have a lot of snow and freezing days here in Poland, it shouldn’t be this way, no!]

  22. It’s okay to have different tastes in music, it’s music not life or death. I thought Standing Still was one of the worst songs you ever reviewed, but I love Man in Love. That’s life.^^

  23. I agree with you guys on the song. I’m a fan of Infinite, and bought a few of their CDs, but I’m just not feeling it in this song. I think it’s the electronic whining sound that turns me away from it, since it kind of sounds like a cat on auto-tune.

  24. BWAHAHAHAHA!!!! I had to stop in the middle of the video because I was laughing so hard. Oh L. It’s ok. I like my phone too.

  26. As much as I love Infinite – and my love for them is pretty much infinite;) – this wasn’t necessarily their best song, probably because I’m so bias to The Chaser and BTD. I like it, I really do, but not as much as some others. The video’s totally cute though – and I think that makes up for it.:)

  29. actually my first thought of Hoya on the store was that he wanted to co-dress! xD
    I actually like the song, but I do agree on what you say about the rest xD

  30. I agree – I wasn’t too keen on the song, it was just too sappy. The video was funny, though frustrating as there was no love interest in the end for it to make somewhat more sense. The fan girl in me was even hoping for a guyguy hook up, but alas. /disappointed.

    3 years ago
    • What is “too sappy”?Why people always expect Infinite to be mopping angsty obsessive emo guys?They are naturally cute and cheerful people and fuck yeah,they are actually smiling a lot during promotions right now.I have not see Sungjong smile this much in like two years so i LOVE this concept,thank you very much
      The video is better without any concrete love interest.For the sake of fangirls and fanboys and everyone.They would just have to stick some one random girl (yeah,girl because heteronormativity) in and that would be lame.They just want to show how guys act when they are in love…but they don’t have to be by their girlfriend or boyfriend 24/7 because surprise
      surprise…some people have life outside of their relationship.
      Also,the MV is pretty ambiguous if you ask me.The moment between Sungyeol and Woohyun is pretty interesting tbh.And this is Woollim we talk about…so you can pretend at least Sungyeol and Woohyun are gonna hook up later;)

  31. Fly chickens, Onew is coming :DD
    I liked the song, because it reminds me spring, but of course “Man in love” doesn’t beat my favorite song BFD. I enjoyed some parts of dance, but not entire. Really, Sungjong missed the chair *lol*. Maybe Sungyeol left his cokies next to piano for Woohyun xD

    I vote for Dongho U-kiss.

  32. I agree with you guys…the song didn’t live up to my expectations especially since chaser be mine and paradise were so awesome~~ but now man in love has grown on me ><

  33. OMJYUSOINFINITEBIASED?!?!?!!!?!?!?!?!?! ARGHHHHHHHHHHH43AIOSDJFAKS;LDFJLKASDJFL!!!!! *ahem* I’m sorry for my outburst, I’ll behave now :3

    Anyway… This was one enjoyable KMM! I actually liked the ultra ’80s up-beat feel of the song; it made me wanna prance around my house like a crazy person. The video, though… Um, I don’t know what to say. I couldn’t take it seriously (except for those awesome dance cuts; they were awesome), it was so ridiculous. I have nothing against pastel pants or cutesy boys, but these guys look like grown men; it’s like SHINee and their need to jump between the sex gods and cutesy boy image (okay, it’s not that extreme, but you get my point, right?). I also didn’t realize that the intro was so close to Never Gonna Give You Up; probably why I liked the song tons XD

    As for my vote in the showdown, I’m going with Sungyeol. Dongho is just as crazy, but at least he’s obsessed with a girl; Sungyeol is obsessed with himself XD

  37. I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t in love with this song upon my first listen despite being a huge fan of Infinite.

    (Though I am in love with the song “Inconvenient Truth” off of their mini because it’s just so….. funky.. and possibly the most 80’s thing Infinite’s released so far.)

    • I agree, it’s not their best song, but it’s still really good. It reminds me of another song too, but I can’t quite figure out which song or why it sounds familiar.
