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!

    Ok, for some random reason when I started watching this video, it had Spanish sub-titles on the bottom of the screen. So I hit the translate to English, & hilarity ensued. Here’s just one of the screen caps I managed to get. Pure comedy gold. I think that from now on, I will watch the video as per normal, then go back & watch as it is translated from English to Spanish, then back to English

  2. meemers galoreeee!!! :3

  3. I like to call my cell phone, “baby boo.”
    (Don’t judge me.)

  4. LOL Meemers face at the end, so cute!

  5. Yang Ruth

    Infinite really try to make themselves fantastic, which means””””No Girlfriends….In this case, fans will love them””’ ok,I think so…By the way, dear Sungyeol’s performance shows the failure of baking apple pie…lol

  6. meemers is huge! <3 cat lovaaaaa

  7. stardustyuri

    LOL guys you crack me up.
    guess the Korean title makes a bit more sense than the English “WHEN a man is in love” vs “Man in Love”

  8. I think we’ve just found ourselves a new category for the next EYK Awards… somewhere that recognizes the KPop Group/Artist’s homelessness. (how should we call that??) Aside from receiving a Golden Spudgy, they get to win a week’s residence in the EYK Studio! wahahahaha. slumber party pictures pls!! xD

  9. Did anyone notice the fact that the outfits (when they’r dancing) are like shinee’s dream girl dancing outfit !! … for some reason that’s the only thing i noticed in the video ! … or maybe its just spring korean fashion thingy (CREEPY stuff :P) i dunno!!

  10. I can’t believe I didn’t notice the rickroll in this song. Omg I’m never going to be able to unhear that now! xD

  11. Leo

    That was awesome !!! :DD

  12. I will vote for Dongho as I kind of agree with the comments that you guys made when I first viewed that video. It’s a little bit better as I feel, but the truth is I kind of like U-Kiss a lot right now. I like their 0330 video too. It doesn’t mean I don’t like Infinite or their video.

  13. my friend and was watching the MV and she says that its called man in love because they are doing things that “the girls they love” would do….or at leasts that’s her perspective on it…….

  14. I seriously love the Taemin mousetrap… :) Truly a puzzling question though… How many Doritos would it take? I’d say quite a few to distract him from the precariously dangling cage above the deliciously tempting Doritos… Unless he has a serious snack attack. Then all bets are off.

  15. Infinite because at least Dongho actually showed a girl in 0330 at some point.

  16. Watching this at 2pm with 2pm in the background…lol!

  17. darla balzer

    thanks for all the Shinee shout-outs! I counted 4 :)

  18. Onew’s name is pronounced Oh-new. 온유 like own. Oh-nyu/Oh-new

    LOVED the “Taemin, you can stay. You’re hooootttt.” LOL

  19. Okay, so while I desperately wanted a KMM of Heo Young Saeng, this week’s video had me absolutely in tears I was laughing so hard. You guys clearly had a blast doing the video and that in itself was fun to watch.

    I’m really indifferent about Infinite at this point. I don’t love ‘em or hate ‘em- they’re just kind of meh to me. But when I watched the music vid for the first time, my mouth was hanging open in disbelief. I’m with you- the song just doesn’t do it for me, but the MV is just a trainwreck of… awesomeness. So bad it’s rad.

    I mean, I suppose they were trying to make a point about a man being in love with a girl he just hasn’t met yet, but the whole thing just came off as a living forever alone meme to me. And the whole shopping for girls clothing scene… WTF. WHY IS HE TRYING ON THE SHOES?!

    All in all, great review. I love it when you guys point out the sheer ridiculousness that can and does appear in KPOP.

    PS. I knew as soon as that cat popped out of the box in the MV that Meemers would be making several appearances.

  20. maipaborin

    Now that hostess has gone down, they have made baking pans so you can (have to) make your own twinkies xD

  21. this is totally irrelevant to the music monday above but Simon and Martina you guys have to check out this video for Off Road’s Head Banging. hahaha Simon would love the english in this song!

  22. AHH! Ain’t nobody got time for that! Maybe he was waiting to cook them to drink with his cooold pop!

  23. You guise this KMM was FABULOUS! Never regret posting a longer video – that just means more jokes for us Nasties to enjoy :) I laughed so hard at that “drunken hamster” comment and now when I’m walking down the street, listening to this song on my iPod I start giggling. Thanks so much for this! This is my favorite KMM in a long time <3

    Also, my vote is for sad DongHo and Dial Tone.

  24. Vote: 0330. At least the Infinite guy is talking to a cat, instead of just talking to himself. :P

  25. 2PM :) S&M excited like the hottest i see

  26. *playing armpits* oooooohhhhhhhhhhhh thats nasty hahah XD

  27. Lol I’m not an Infinite fan, but this was like the only song I’ve liked so far

  28. i so hated the song but i freaking loved the video..lol

  29. Voting Dongho. It takes a whole lot of crazy to convince yourself an imaginary person is real, whereas sungyeol is just havin’ himself a good time in the kitchen. Not like ga-in. They probably wouldn’t include that in an MV. I hope.

    Hey nasties! i just saw Psy doing a commercial for pistachios… It was “Oppa pistachio style!” Cheesy…most definitely, but makes me happy seeing Kpop reaching the masses. Wonder who will be next to break through? Maybe Junsu can do a commercial for Chiquita bananas!

  31. i think people need to read your blog posts to complete KMM

  32. kpopfan123

    Fun Music Monday! ^___^

    Great work guise! :D

    P.S: Meems needs more Ulzang shots :)) He’s too adorable > . <

    ♥♥ ♥ ♥

  33. “Taemin you can stay”

    “Run chickens, Onew is coming”

    Questions 2, 4 on the blackboard!!!

    SiMar SHINee bias!!!! WOO HOOOO!!

  34. 2PM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. Cat in a box…could be alive or dead…Schrodinger’s cat?

  36. This song kind of reminds me of Boyfriend’s “I Yah” especially the chorus

  37. brinaethegiraffe

    This review reminded me why I love you so much.

  38. WorthInClay

    I’m glad you really enjoyed yourselves doing this review, because it sounds worrying that you didn’t enjoy making the recent videos as much as you did when you first started, without having to pay excessive heed to viewers’ moods but just being able to free-wheel your crazy ideas.
    “Enjoy your life”

  39. LOL Ummm Voting on DongHo for the craziest lonely person. Sorry XD;;

    This was hilarious to watch. I know some people might be upset you guys didn’t like the song, but honestly it’s your opinion, and if they wanted a spazz-account for every single thing in the song/mv, there are plenty of other places they can get that.

    (I have a couple friends who dislike EYK because new k-pop fans take them as gospel — If EYK doesn’t like the song then it’s crap! — But that’s a totally wrong way to look at things, from both sides /o Ah well )
