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. I was looking at the comments on youtube for the mv and someone had written Knock Things Over instead of Nothing’s Over…  I don’t know why that cracks me up, possibly the toilet paper reference.

  2. ha. i wanted to give my pants… which would be way too big for everyone except for Shindong (he’s epic, btw) :D

  3. ha. i wanted to give my pants… which would be way too big for everyone except for Shindong (he’s epic, btw) :D

  4. I think SHINee was worse… No offense! SHINee was the first kpop group I got into!

  5. hahaha. I went to the website to know if it was real…. it went back to this. :( Wow, I was reakky looking forward to having Taemin wear my pants. Or anyone I guess. lol jk

  6. I’ll find my baby…
    OH MY GAWD IM SCARED

  7. I originally thought it was a “give pants” charity organization LOL

  8.  i love infinite lol the boy who jumped off the ladder is hoya and the boy who was playing with his fingers was woohyun <3 thanks for reviewing this!

  9. please talk about big bang “Tonight” Japan Version

  10. INFINITE INFINITE INFINITE <3 <3 <3 <3

  11. shinee is worse

  12. i vote for shinee because their colours are a lot brighter :P and it looks… quite… stupid
    i think pastel jeans would look good on girls though :P

    • The 24/7 love/bias is SHINee. But…….
      1. It looks too colorful for Lucifer
      2. THey have done it multiple times… Juliette and Lucifer
      3. Doesn’t match their style well-yea it’s skinnies but stil
      4. It looks like something an elementary/JH/Middle School student would wear.
      5. They are guys… not one guy at my elementary school has ever worn pastel jeans.. only girls
      They do look good on girls… hence we wear it sometimes.
      It looked cute when SNSD wore it for Gee. (Minho <3 hehe ^^)
      What were you thinking? To SHINee's designer)

  13. i love you guys so much! you make me actually look forward to mondays
    this is so funny because as soon as i heard the song i told my sister i loved this new song "nothing sober"…and then i too realized it's actually "nothing's over"…

  14. SHINee is better !!! SHINee forever !!! <333

  15. You do know that the person that pops up behind the dude driving in the end is a girl right? It's not a guy at all…..

  16. please do Orange Caramel – bangkok city ^-^

  17. All I have to say is:

    NOTHING'S OVER! YOU WANNA LEAVE THIS GURL!? YOU WANNA LEAVE THIS!

  18. definitely SHINee :D
    for Infinite being SOOO pastelpanthophilia on the first and last time pardonable.

    NOTHING SOBER~~

  19. I'll go with infinite……………….at least SHINee's are designed. errrrrrrrrrrr. they are actually runway collection from a korean fashion designer.

  20. Please review U-Kiss – 0330 for Music Monday (: They have made a step from Shut Up! to 0330 with their 2 new members, even though I think they should've made a 9 member group instead of replacing 2 members….. :(

  21. I vote for SHINee. :)

  22. Oh! Oh! I spy MBLAQ on your computer! 8D…..I have the poster of that c:

    And I saw my name at the end! :DDD

  23. Although SHINee does have a major case of pastelpenthophilia since they've done it so many times they're starting to look good in it. i don't know if its cause they're taller or not..hmmm.. anyways.. although infinite kinda managed to pull it off the colors were kinda tacky. So ill vote for infinite but still love the song. BTW.. when i first heard the song i thought they said nothing is sober. Lol XD

  24. Simon is totally shameless! He makes me laugh every time. Martina, your makeup in this video was groovy.
    I lived in Korea for two years (first year in Bucheon, second in Yeongdeungpo) and you guys really heighten my nostalgia.
    Thanks for the videos, I look forward to each one.

  25. SHINee for the Pastelpanthophilia award, because they go that extra mile by having not 1 pastel color in their pants, but several at the same time. Now that's PRO.
    (btw…2VXQ released a dance version MV of *Before You Go* – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLBIy6t-X-A&fe
    hoooo MY ~ the air-humping towards the end – wowsa! Don't think we'll be seeing a Simon & Martina 'club scene' TM of those moves…LOL.

  26. I choose SHINee for having a worse case of Pastelpanthophilia. Rly, those pants in the other Lucifer performances just didn't work for me >3<
    Anyway awesome job in making kpop funny and in a foreign fan point of view~

  27. hmm i like how kpop boybands assume a lot more their pastel colors ^^
    Even though im a HUGE fan of SHINee, i think they have worse pastelpantafilia than INFINITE for one reason….they've had it for a while now..><
    woot Simon!! Canadian sweat hairband thingy whatever tht is called xD YAY for Canada :D
    MBLAQ desktop background :D
    Oh i wanted to ask Martina, which drama are you watching now? i recently finished Secret Garden and i cant stop watching the BIGBANG music monday xD
    and i really love your videos :) thanks for making my after school time a bit better ^^

  28. If you look at the colors for traditional Korean clothes (han bok) for men, it might just be genetically imprinted in our culture to like the pastel colors?
    infinte ….just because

  29. Marina, love your strawberry earrings! Did you get them in Korea?

  30. Amazing Kpop Monday as always!
    I totally loved your earring Martina!
    My vote goes for Infinte, SHINee are still the gods of colored pants.
    Actually the part when infinte movse with their upperbodies, is calles the whining dance :P

  31. Funny as usual… and even thought I sort of like the pastels… it was still funny…. I vote for Shinee

  32. my vote goes to shinee. infinite looks pretty good in them

  33. Martina, love you eye make up!!!
    My vote goes with SHINee..I love love love them, but the pastels…blech! Their whole tour this year ended with a pastel explosion…even their official merchandise was painted with an Easter theme…le sigh

  34. Oh my god, LOL at the picture of martina unnie behind seungyeol haha…
    AHCK. I feel ashame T.T I have blue pants… like the bright one T.T
    and my vote goes to shinee, theirs were ugh let's just say can't even coordinate with their top >.<

  35. Martina looks so pretty! love the makeup :)

  36. Shinee = my vote for worst pants.
    @Martina, you look really nice without (and with) bangs! Your skin looked so clear and radiant :D.
    @Simon, I totally heard sober, and thought "this is like OKGO with it's one shot-ness" too!
    @Spudgy, your agility is one on par with ninjas.

  37. This was tragically close. Infinite wins for sheer number. Shinee was not far behind with the green/orange/yellow patch pants that hurts the eye. Spudgy versus the TP wall was great fun! Cute makeup Martina!

  38. my vote goes to shinee, theirs was brighter

  39. My vote is shinee. Actually I did like infinite's pastel pants.

    About the random ending….all of infinite's music videos have random endings so im guessing that they were just keeping up the tradition lol. Check out their other videos for "Come Back Again" and "She's Back" to see what im talking about :)

    Thanks for reviewing! Love you guys <3

  40. Infinite has Pastelpanthophilia. SHINee just looks finee in their sexy colored skinny pants :)

  41. oh my god, Simon and Martina, THANK YOU SO MUCH for bringing Pastelpanthophilia awareness to the masses. It truly is a serious problem in the Kpop community that has been striking down the hot and sexy boys I love to listen to. It kills me when I go to youtube or download a performance by ZE:A or SHINee or Infinite and see a bunch of pastel pants. Korea, I love your music to death but not every boy band is supposed to look like the jumped out of an Easter basket. Also please take a look at ZE:A's Pastelpanthophilia in their newest music video "Here I Am", I'm pretty sure they trump both SHINee and Infinite.

  42. I vote for. . . idk. Infinite. Mostly cause the video has the pants and I haven't seen many SHINee vids with rainbows. live performances, but not many videos except "Hello."

  43. I actually don't mind the Pastel Pants on Infinite, it fits into the whole image of the MV. I hated the Pants on SHINee because it didn't go with the feel of Lucifer. If they are going for the whole 'cutesy boy band' image, then pastelpantaphilia is alright.

  44. My vote for WORST Pastelpantiphilia goes to Shinee…. as much as I didn't like Infinite's pastel pants, those patchy pants were awful… just AWFUL! xP So in essence, Infinite totally wore it better :)

    Btw, I couldn't watch the Shinee video without thinking about "petting camels" and "high-fiving myself and missing" LOL

  45. SHINee is a repeat sufferer of pastelpantiphilia, so they win FO SHO! BTW: Martina, your makeup in this vid was REALLY COOL!!!! I wish I knew how to do that. Y U SO AWESOME!???!!

  46. I vote for Infinite for the worst pastelpantaphilia case!!!
    (Maybe because Shinee kinda looks sexy even with this "desease"… aaaaaaaaaaand the choreo is a lot better!!!!) xDDDD

  47. 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)

  48. Great episode!! Go go spudgy!!! Actually, I also wanted to do that :D

    I vote for SHINee. I think it's their fault all this pastelpantaphilia started. I really like them anyway, even with the terrible outfits, xD.

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

  50. Ok – as much as I love SHINee….they totally are worse with the whole rainbow-pants thing. And yes, it is a little weird. I would donate my jeans but I'm pretty sure three SHINee members could fit in my pants….*sigh*

  51. shinee is going to win…… thats all im gonna say…….

  52. NOTHING'S SOBER! XD hahaha that was great :D (and Simon's shirt… EPIC!)

    and for the Pastelpantaphilia contest…… i have to say tha SHINee wins…. only because they are MUCH more colorful and have worn them for a long~ time (:

  53. i definitely think that infinite has the worst pastelpantaphilia!!!! hahahaha!!!!! that was hilarious!!!!!!!!:D

  54. Shinee's pants were horrible. Alteast Infinite had one shade on.

  55. As much Pastelpanthophilia as Infinite has, I have to say SHINee. I love both groups, but SHINee has been around for longer and yeah… Hahaha soo… Yep:)

  56. First off, thank you so much for reviewing INFINITE's Nothing's Over video! These guys are awesome, but yeah, the English confused me as well… haha, I still don't understand the rap though it does have a good beat to it. XD

    Next… the worst pastel pants wearer, huh? Ugh… this is hard because I really liked both, but I'm going to have to go with SHINee.
    The patch of colors was a bit awkward to me, even for an onstage outfit.
    It was definitely unique and had them standing out.. but it was a bit odd seeing the crotch area a darker shade of color than the rest of the pants.
    Feels like it's a fashion runaway…which can be taken as a compliment, too. XD

  57. I see you guys went on a Threadless binge too…
    ahaha…so did I, it's okay :D
    March Madness FTW.

  58. Martina~ I love your makeup~ It's so super cute :D

    Also, I see your MBLAQ computer background ^^

  59. wow, the vote seems to be pretty split-but i vote for Infinite as having the worst Pastelpanthophilia, because (sorry to disagree with you Martina) I actually really like the rainbow outfits that SHINEE wears.

  60. SHINee…has extreme pastelpantsaphilia. XD

  61. 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 :(

  62. Yeeeey, Infinite <3
    Don't really like the colored pants in either case, but I'm gonna vote for SHINee. Infinte's pants kinda match the song, but Lucifer + pastel pants .___.
    Stay happy and healthy <3

  63. PEDO BEAR ALERT! check out the video at 1:43-1:50 bum grasping! ~oooerrrr :D

  64. I love you guys!!! You have inspired me to learn korean!!! I actually am using a site you advertized on here…. thank you for giving me a life XD

  65. I think INFINITE definitely has it worse.
    At least Shinee can wear it well

  66. INFINITE IS WORSE
    SHINEE PULLS IT OFF A LOT BETTER

  67. 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.

    • I dont think big bang has the problem as bad as shinee tho… imo tho i sometimes feel as if GD's wardrobe is like a iPod, he puts the whole thing on shuffle and hits play and whatever comes up he wears

  68. I vote for shinee because they wear those pants more often and can you do here I am by Z:EA for next week

  69. I vote for SHINee and I actually really like their pastels from Juliet days :D

  70. 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.

  71. They singing "nothing's over " but when I first time listened that song I heard "yakisoba" ke ke ke ^^
    I… give my vote SHINee… because actually I think Infinite have cute pants ^^

  72. 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!!!!!

  73. 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…

  74. For me Shinee has the worst case of pastelpantaphilia >.< Infinite is ok…they have to look cute and they got it …..but shinee they had to look more manly and with the rainbow pants~~ … seriously ?? They didn't get the manly look ._.

    Simon and Martina you're so funny I love to watch your videos… I really love what you guys are doing~~ I'm from Chile and I never forget to check your videos and wedsite… Thank U!!

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

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

  77. I vote SHINee…

  78. 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

  79. 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.

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

    Voting for Shinee.

  81. Infinit's gonna get my vote. SHINee looks kinda good in those kinda pants :P

  82. 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!

  83. 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 :)

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

  85. 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)

  86. 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.

  87. 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?

  88. I really doesn't like most of SHINee's rainbow pants, colors are okay, but not totally rainbow! And SHINee has like always been the group the group with the colored pants … But because I like plain colored pants, more than rainbow pants, then I'm gonna vote for SHINee.

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

  90. 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.

  91. I wanted to donate the pants but i was redirected here =(

  92. 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!

  93. i vote infinite.. I think shinee is VERY cute with those colourful pants on!! :P

  94. shinee….absolutely!!!!!!…who on earth did choose those outfits????..if you go like this in the streets of athens everybody will turn around and stare at you!!(especially if you are a boy..)..i think the clothes are really colourfull and happy..but not for dancing ''lucifer''..
    and martina please don't kill more birds with these squeaking- yellow-washing gloves…..

  95. 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…

  96. i will vote for……….SHINee!!!! i don't care is their style is weird as long as their talent is there!!! but i don't blame on SHINee design to SHINee oppa! blame it on their designer…that should do it!!! oh yeah~ :D

  97. Banana

    Hilarious as always. Especially like the certifiedED doctor he he. How do you get to the bloopers?

  98. Martina… your earrings are sooo awesome!!! And again a super awesome Music Money!
