Infinite – Nothing’s Over: Kpop Music Mondays

March 28, 2011

This week we review Infinite’s “Nothing’s Over” and try to spread the word about Pastelpanthophilia.

Yeah, we’re not a fan of rainbow pants. Martina mentioned it a while ago in our review of SHINee’s “Lucifer” and she’s saying it again today. Stop with the rainbow pants! The guys look a lot better otherwise! Their styles at the end of the video are really quite cool, but the pastel pants just looks so…awful! Aaaah!

Anyhow, on to good things about the video: THIS VIDEO IS AWESOME! We would love to see more videos like this. It seems like when Kpop bands do cutey boy videos, like in F.Cuz’s “Wanna Be Your Love” they tend to be a bit lazy, with little more than boys doing fanservice by just smiling and looking cute. This video, though, turned out to be cute, but at the same time still was an awesome video that would appeal to more than just fangroups. I mean, come on: THEY BREAK DOWN A WALL OF TOILET PAPER ROLLS! Big bonus. And the almost one-shot-scene feel to it was likewise quite awesome. Yeah! Super well done. If we could review kpop videos like this every week we’d be really happy :D

On a side note: ff you check out our blooper footage you might be confused as to why Simon’s climbing the walls and dancing. Yeah…about that: we cut that last scene out because it was a bit out there. At the end of Infinite’s video, when the song’s over, for some reason they start doing random things. One guy bends over and starts playing with his fingers, while another guy randomly climbs halfway up a ladder, gets confused, jumps down, and runs away. Why? We’re not sure. We tried to do some climbing of our own, but it all just degraded into an unusable scene.

We’d also like to apologize for the terrible audio for this week’s edition. Our mic had a malfunction. Kpop Music Mondays will be back to normal next week. Anyways, thanks to JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for the Korean subtitles. Yeah! One more thing: if you’re looking to buy the Infinite Album, you can do so by clicking this link here. They ship overseas! Sweet!

  1. Thank you for reviewing Nothing Sober (I don't think anyone hears "nothing's over") – yay, Infinite hwaiting!
    Simon's hungover Sungyeol scenario is my favourite interpretation. I love this video – a number of recent KPop MVs have been bright and glossy so it's nice to see muted colours and lo-fi effects, especially for an upbeat song (ie. not a ballad). I like the slight dreamy, Michel Gondry-y feel of the music video – well that, and Infinite are so cute in it…

    As for who suffers most from pastelpantaphilia (LOL – this term is genius), my vote's for Shinee because they reverted back to pastel/rainbow a year after Juliette came out. This is Infinite's first diagnosis (they haven't worn the pastel jeans for a live performance – yet). I love both Infinite and Shinee, but the rainbow outfits Shinee are wearing in that clip are horrible and don't match Lucifer. I prefer their pretty boy punk concept in the mv.

    On a side note – I discovered KPop Monday after buying Infinite's BTD on iTunes. I'm very grateful that they and my Kpop obsession led me to Eat Your Kimchi – your blog is awesome. (major understatement)

    • SOMETIMES I hear "Nothing's Over." LOL, but I have to listen very closely. And sometimes it's just plain "Nothing Sober." LOLL

    • I gotta agree. I didn't mention the coloring in this video, but I totally loved it. Had a great, dreamy feel to it – but talking about that in our review would be too much nerd talk, I think.

  2. I vote SHINee…. Infinite pulls off the pastel pants very well, especially Seongyeol. SHINee, however, seemed a hot-mess….

  9. SHINee- cause one of the rainbow patches looks like a codpiece to me. If you're going to do pastel pants they should at least be solid colored. Infintite's pants at least matched their outfits and coordinated well. that said, pastel pants shouldn't be worn by people who are out of grade school!

    side note: did you guys stop allowing FB as a sign in? I used to be logged in through FB, but now i'm just a guest :(

  14. First off I LOVE your shirt Simon. I grew up with the Care Bears so your shirt is so adorable. I lol at Spudgy and the toilet paper lol. And for the jeans thing so true. Don't forget the Big Bang guys have that issue too I think lol. Martina got a "Max Time!" in there lol. Oh and when I was in elementary school (graduated high school in 2001) I had some jeans that had the fake paint in pastel colors splattered over the jeans. I wore those jeans a lot haha. Just shh don't tell Kpop about them lol.

    Just wanted to say that you guys are awesome, your videos make my day!!

    I am a huge SHINee fan, so this really hurts me to say – SHINee's pastelpantaphilia is worse. I don't really like Infinite's pastel pants either but at least it goes with the theme of the video. Same thing with Juliette – the clothing matched the song. But bright, neon pants while dancing to Lucifer? No.

  18. Um SHINee seriously has it the worst not only was it in like 2 of their music video's they wore them at like thousands of their concerts anddddddddd out in the public!!!! But they are sooo cute! So SHINee!!!!!

  19. SHINee definetly has the worst case of pastelpantaphilia..
    I guess in Lucifer it wasn't THAT bad, but OMGEE… in Julliette I had a bad first impression of them and their style…

  20. SHINee has the worst case of pastelpantaphilia. They go as far as borrowing SNSD's pants. Come on dudes, seriously?

  21. Your hair and makeup look so nice Martina! And SHINee is definitely in need of your medical attention. Hopefully their Pastelpantaphilia can be cured!

  22. SHINee for the showdown. Their rainbow pants does not appeal to me cos its a skinny. Was impressed by their debut, then got cold water poured on to me when they came out with their second single wearing those uber tight skinnys. Those made them look like girls. At least Infinite's pants aren't extremely form fitting. :D

  23. Great video this week! Haha, Spudgy didn't want to cooperate…

    Anyway, i'd have to give my vote this week to…SHINee. See, "Nothing's Over" was supposed to be cutesy from the get-go. And the pants kind of help with that part. In a weird way. "Lucifer", however, was supposed to be dark and sexy if the video is anything to go by, and those pants just ruined it and returned them to cutesy-land.

  24. No. 1 stress relief on a Monday filled with essay work. :)

    Voting for Shinee.

  25. It gives me great pain to do this…. but SHINee gets my vote. There's one pair of rainbow-terrible-gag-pants that I've seen video of Jonghyun and Onew wearing (that in itself is kinda creepy…) that just needs to BURN! If I ever see those pants I may ask to buy them (cause who can turn down money) not to get them out of the pants… heh heh heh (OK not really) but just to I CAN BURN THEM!

  26. I thought they were saying "life is over" instead of "nothings over" haha. Anyways I am going to have to vote for SHINee for worst pastelpantaphilia. I still LOVE SHINee though :)

  27. Shinee… :o I really didn't like it on them, I liked it on Infinite though XD

  28. I think the pastel pants work for both groups, except that you chose SHINee's NEON pants/wardrobe which is absolutely hideous :D Other than that Korean boys are the cutests things in pastel –> GD&TOP evidence: http://livekpop.com/wp-content/uploads/images/201… & http://www.theprophetblog.net/wp-content/uploads/… <3

    I have to say that this weeks Music Mondays is definetly in the MM hall of fame! :D I agree that the video is awesome and kind of retro + Infinite is definetly a rookie boy group to look out to.

    Thank you for making my mondays worth waiting for! 8)

  29. SHINee were the original pastel-pant-wearing boys (Juliette, and Replay dance vers) so I have to vote for Infinite for having the worst. My bias, I'll show you it. ^^

    I do think this was a really awesome video! I liked how different the style was to most kpop vids, in my opinion.

  30. Shinee?

    Infinite's rainbow color pants look nice, Shinee's choice of colors is just tacky.

    and btw it's not a good thing, right? the rainbow color pants phobia? why someone voted for Shinee because s/he thinks they are talented?

  31. My vote goes to Infinite…. Possibly because they don't look as good in Pastel Rainbow pants as SHINee…

    5 years ago
  32. I vote for Infinite actually
    Maybe it's because this whole rainbow pants thing was actually called SHINee Style [i.e. they came up with it] so it look better on them.
    you know what they said "The original is the best".
    so that's my vote.

  34. I was wondering the exact same thing. What are they doing at the end? and WHY??? Kpop cracks me up. Very entertaining. Thanks for all the videos!

    • I thought they said "Not being Sober" instead of Nothings over. I like the hangover storyline better.

  37. I just discovered you guys last week, and I'm already addicted :) Keep up the good work!

    The toilet paper roll wall was also my favourite part of the video! I also really liked the song.

    Infinite has the worse pastelpantaphilia. Shinee doesn't have pastelpantaphilia so much as rainbowpantaphilia – and they have less of them (2 as opposed to 7?). I hadn't heard of Infinite before this, so I honestly thought it was a mixed girl – guy group when I saw those tight pastel pants…
