That’s how you spell out the Christmas song, by the way. Side note: we don’t really even know what the name of that song is. We just sing it.

Anyhoot, here’s our Christmas themed Music Monday, in which we talk about a bunch of Christmas Kpop songs. Some are fun, some are merry, some are odd, some are forced, some are WTF, but all will make you feel like it’s Christmas!

Ok, for really reals: where’s TOP singing “Little Drummer Boy”? I played my drum for him doom dada doom da! Me and my druuuum. Ok that might not be the best song. Why isn’t YG on this list? YG needs to make a Christmas song. Christmas in the YG Hood. Lots of Green and Red bandanas on their faces. Diamond grills made out of Christmas ornaments. Merry Christmas MOFOs!

So, yeah, that might not work out all too well, but the other labels are chipper and not-ultra cool enough to fit the Christmas vibe, I think. Let us know which one of the songs was your favourite. And someone PLEASE tell me what EXO’s video is all about. Maybe the lyrics give it a happier, Christmas-ier feeling, but I don’t wanna see people cry! Why did the girl disappear? Why give a blank canvas to someone for Christmas, and why caress it beforehand? That video was just a mess of WHYs, even though the song was pretty. I just wish I didn’t see the video.

On a sillier note: bloopers!

 

Anyhow, we’re writing this blog post now as we’re packing for Canada, so we’re in a bit of a hurry, seeing as we’re flying out in less than 24 hours and we still haven’t put anything in our suitcases yet, and we still have to drop of Spudgy and Meemers at our friends’ places. SO SAD! We can’t bring the animals with us this year. But we’ll be seeing family for Christmas, at least! Our first one with them in Canada in FIVE YEARS! EEEEP! That could probably be why we’ve been so Christmas themed lately. Our WANK is a Christmas video, too, though that’ll be published when we’re in Canada, even though we pre-filmed it.

On that note, later today, at around 3AM Korean time we’re going to be publishing a video for the Project for Awesome campaign, so stay tuned for that. It’s important! Not as chipper as a Christmas movie, but it’s still important to watch! Subscribe if you haven’t already to make sure that you don’t miss out on that video, or any others!

    My ALL TIME favorite Kpop Christmas Song (Well, next to Crayon Pop’s that is)! Their voices just get me every time :)
    And yeah…this post is a little late…X3 Worth a listen if you’ve never heard it :D

  3. Santa: making the world a better place, ear after ear.

  4. um so i’m wondering and i know somebody probably mentioned this already but when is the next music monday? i know that when christmas comes around there sometimes aren’t any so when is the next one?

    Late addition just released – History: All I Want for Christmas is You http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgb_Xp1jGqk

  6. Sam Loat

    I was hoping you would of included Starship Planet’s Christmas Song .. They all look so close in theirs !

  7. Isn’t that Roh (or Noh?) Ji Hoon? He did that song ‘Punishment’ with the pants dance… I’m pretty sure S&M did either a KMM or KMM Update on him once…

    EDIT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYfqORbqRmc

  8. LinZi

    Interestingly, none of the people in the Dashing Through the Snow In High Heels video are actually wearing high heels. What?

  9. fuuko4869

    YG should’ve followed your advice…any of your suggestions would’ve been better than that Bom&Hi song. I couldn’t bear to hear/watch it more than once; Bom’s singing made me feel tired just listening to it; and their acting/lipsyncing was cringeworthy >_< I had to go listen to the original just to clean the gunk out of my ears. Sorry, I love those girls, and YG, but no :(

    As for my favourite Kpop-ish Christmas song, by far, without doubt, hands down – Ailee's My Grown Up Christmas List:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ha3RwFjOg7Q

    It's a cover, but the song, video, and vocals are all absolutely stunning.

    For Simon’s Christmas education:

    Also, considering Boy George and George Michael both show up in under the first minute, it could probably be a strong argument against the little editing bit about the one kpop song being reminiscent of 80s Christmas songs but more gay…. :)

    EXO “MIRACLES IN DECEMBER”

    Okay basically the EXO song is all about wanting to go back to a time where there were good memories with the one they love (representation of the girl), to relive all the memories and to wish that they weren’t selfish about being indulged into their powers. Their powers are shown again in this video and is based off of the powers from the MAMA video, so Xiumin allows to snow to appear and Tao controls time. Tao’s controlling the time to represent the desire that each EXO member has to turn the clock back and to show their loved one how they really are and how sincere they are. The disappearance of the girl represents, like i was saying before, how the EXO members wanted to show who they really were, but the fact that they were so induced into their own powers they regret not being able to keep their lover and treat her as well as they could have. There is actually deep symbolism of Kris’ painting, speaking as an artist myself i can relate to what was actually going on with Kris’ painting situation. In the beginning Kris wasn’t necessarily caressing it, but was actually struggling to find a subject to paint. It follows through with him almost breaking into tears and gifting a blank canvas, which actually is very symbolic. The blank canvas represents how when you care for someone as with all your heart and even more, you tend to want to give them a home made gift, in this case it was a painting. The fact that Kris left it blank represents how no gift can ever level up to show how much that person ( the painter) cares for the other person. As an artist myself, i do struggle to find what can truly represent how much I would feel about a person, and sometimes i realize that no painting can be worth how much i love and care for that person. Initially this is what is symbolic about the painting, the fact that Kris cannot express his love just through a painting, and that no matter what he paints it cannot level with his emotions for that person. The lyrics, like i stated before are about wanting to turn back time to treat this lover especially well, and how EXO is waiting for a “Miracle” to happen that would actually work in their favor to show how much they truly love that person. The lover is not necessarily dead either, just because of the disappearing scene, it means that she has moved on, which explains Sehun’s heart broken face, showing what he had lost and not kept.

    I hope I answered your questions to the best of my ability!

  12. I remember in a previous video that y’all were saying that Christmas in Korea is really more for couples and less for family. Since it’s celebrated a little differently than how y’all grew up, wouldn’t it make sense for the songs to be about love? :x I’m not really bothered in the slightest that they weren’t singing all about holiday cheer and that kind of stuff. Plus, I’ll be even more inclined to listen to these songs all year round this way.

    Anyway, EXO’s song and video were my favorite on this list by a VERY large margin. I think the video goes along quite well with the lyrics as well. It’s about looking back on someone they loved so very much, how they should have treated them better, how they wish they could go back in time to when they were together etc. The song and video are both so beautiful.

    Y’all should definitely check out some of Jellyfish Ent’s Christmas songs. I like the one they put out this year, but I really enjoy the one they did last year more. ^^ I feel like it beats a lot of the videos on the list for me too.

    I’m not sure if you’ve already gotten the explanation how Miracles in December’s MV relates to the song title itself but what the hey;

    The song is about a man yearning back for his ex-lover. As the trans of the lyrics go “I see things that I couldn’t see before,
    I hear things that I couldn’t hear before” it actually means that the man has realized how he selfish he was to have taken advantage of the relationship between him and the woman.

    I don’t celebrate Christmas but I know that it is taken as the month/day where miracles could happen. So the man wishes for a miracle in December to happen because the break up supposedly happened in the month of December as well, and as you know, a miracle did come when Tao used his alien time control powers and turned back time. Now, I just need to say that no, EXO is not chasing after the same girl. When the time was going backwards and the snow was going upward, Sehun (the tall, blonde guy) got a chance to see his lover again and thought the miracle was actually happening. But it only lasted for a few seconds and in a blink, the girl was gone and the snow was falling downward normally again.

    The reason why the other members were crying too is because they all had the similar feeling of loss as did Sehun felt. Chanyeol, the guy with the two rings (*coughs 10080 *coughs*), was supposed to give the other ring to his lover but didn’t get too, so he just played it off and wore both of the rings instead. Though, I’m not really sure about the Nature Republic gifts and the canvas (which is not blank, if you watch the BTS of the MV, there is actually a drawing. But I doubt that it was Kris’s lol) but yeah, I’m certain that those gifts were left unaccepted and in the end, they were left under the snow, just waiting.

    The chorus of this song translates to “stopping the time, I go back to you. I open up this book of memories and I open up the page where I am there with you” which made me cry so hard I don’t even know why but it might be because of the beautiful harmonization and also the situation where the Sehun thing happened.

    P/s: I don’t think many people realized that Xiumin also used his alien freezing powers to make it snow.

    [TL;DR] The title of the song is called Miracles in December because the man wishes miracles could happen in December to get his lover back. Though, it’s not stated in the lyrics, that would be the only explanation why that’s the song title.
    But I get it, this song doesn’t really give you the Christmas spirit, probably because that wasn’t the aim of it in the first place. I’d like to think of this song as a story that took place on Christmas instead.

    I’m sorry that I wrote so long, I just wanted to make things clear (which hopefully, I did).

    I’m really happy that you guys reviewed this song and video and hope that you’d have a very Merry Christmas! ^_^

    I’ve seen girls on mountains in heels, but crazier than that, at Jisan Valley Rock Festival, I saw a girl wading in a creek in heels. Seriously.

  15. chuckthegirl

    Nope, the EXO song’s lyrics are just as depressing as the MV. I was the same as y’all. When I read the title, Miracle in December, I thought it would be inspiring or joyful/peaceful/hopeful – things associated with Christmas. The song was gorgeous and the MV left me scratching my head. So I went and found the lyrics and was like, oh… Other Kpop Christmas song lyrics are just as depressing though. It’s all about being lonely with no significant other on Christmas. That’s NOT what Christmas is about. Why Kpop gotta make Christmas be depressing?! I’ll stick with my dashing through the snow, ho-ho-ho, joy to the world Christmas songs.

  16. Ray

    I love Crayon Pop’s song and the dance is super cute and funny

  17. I’m pretty sure EXO’s miracle in December is having three quarters of the group stand outdoors in a public venue without getting attacked by a large number of crazy fans.

  18. Simon Bates-Joyce

    Hello I’m new here. and Yes, my DP is actually me. I’m just modelling.
    Anyway, My theory behind SM using just one boy or girl is a very optimistic view that they like to show a normal looking boy/girl and say that you could be attractive to multiple types of girls or guys.
    On the other hand… I also think it could be laziness, utter mind-numbing laziness.

    When Hyori was being persude by SPICA to become their “Sistar X” she specifically made them climb a mountain in their high heels! Saw it on MNET!

  22. Ingrid Schmidt

    I heard the reason why they do this whole group with one girl or one boy is because its like some kind of law in the k-pop industry. If you pay attention, there’s no kpop music video in which each member of the group has a differente girl/boy

    BIGSTAR’s I Got Ya or I Got The Feeling or I Get A Feeling or whatever it’s called is pretty cool too.
    And Turbo’s White Love.

    Crayon Pop’s Lonely Christmas dance cracks me up.

  26. Leigh Smith

    Next year at Christmas, we’ll get to hear what you thought about the BH song! And any other songs that pop out. And I agree, YG needs to make a label song for Christmas.

  27. Hazel Raine

    The video was about Michael Jackson who was trying to kill Rudolph
    And Rudolph retaliates with a gun.

  28. Hawa Hamza

    The guy with the teddy bear in Cube Ent’s Christmas Song is Kim Kilee. He’s a comedian and he’s under Cube. Does anyone here watch Gag Concert?

  29. I love when you guys do these kinds of videos. It’s like a bunch of mini-kmm’s mashed into one magical fragical video and we get to hear your thoughts about a handful of videos that may not otherwise get a ton of attention on the kpop charts. The relaxed feeling of the video is fun as well!

    P.S. Martina’s decorations were splendiferous and lovely and SO MUCH CHRISTMAS AHHHH YAYYY FEEL THE JOY.

  30. Lexi_Lee

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one that noticed that the canvas was blank in Miracles in December XD

  31. Lol the unknown girl in the Cube video is Shin Ji Hoon. She was on SBS KPop Star 2 and made like top 10 or something. She gained a lot of interest because she is (was?) also a figure skater. :)

  32. Sara Napsey

    Yesterday, I was walking home and I see this girl wearing OPEN TOED high heeled shoes with a dress that went up to her mid-thigh. I looked at her strangely and though “Ehhh, it’s Korea. Nothing to see here.”

  33. lady_kire
    lady_kire

    I must be the weirdo who understood that EXO’s mv was something about losing a girl and that even if you turned back time, the girl would not be there. I saw the girl they lost, Tao trying to turn time back, and the girl is there for a bit, but she disappears. So, I figured it was a sad reality.

    Maybe all that time travelling the Doctor and the Tardis made got time travelling logic in my head. Or that kid from JYJ’s full version of In Heaven telling me that even if you went back in time, tragedy will still happen.

    Here’s the extremely strange thing. I HATE CHRISTMAS SONGS, yet EXOs Miracles in December is the best Christmas song I’ve heard in a long time… I have problems… Happiness in Christmas songs is overated.

    Yeah, cheerful Christmas songs are annoying if every bloody store plays the same song 5 times in 30 min. Also, my brother got to play Christmas songs in the middle of June or July… I now hate Christmas songs.

    • YOU’RE NOT ALONE! I understood it as well :)
      At first I was like ‘what is it? A memory?’ since Tao makes them go back in time, and the snow stops when the girl appears, and stuff.
      But once I red the lyrics, I understood the meaning of the MV: they WISH for a miracle to happen, that is the girl coming back to them- being reunited; but it never happens. That’s why it’s sad and represents the emotional side of Christmas.
      But the song is awesome, and sticks in your head! :D
      And I agree with you, this songs is refreshing when comparing with most happy christmas songs out there.

  34. Holy fart sucking batman

    My fam says bowkay so SIMON IS WRONG!!!!!

  35. You didn’t rank my favorite one – Starship’s Snow Candy.
    I love how natural the vocals/background music sound (minus the awkward rap part). Although this may be because Starship Entertainment featured their great vocalists (K.Will, Hyorin, Soyou and the vocalists from Boyfriend) and kind of ignored the nont-as-great-singers in the groups.

    The video is cute – they actually all interact with each other.

    What you said about EXO’s song is exactly what I was ranting about with my friend like WHY YOU WANT TO MAKE US SAD ON CHRISTMAS DDDD: and i personally think that their song ‘first snow’ on their album would have been so much cuter/have more potential for a happy Christmas song ^^

    oh and idk if anyone mentioned this but there is also Secret’s Christmas song :D

    시크릿 (SECRET) – I Do I Do M/V

    so broadway sounding isn happiness :D

  37. Fiona M

    “Merry Festivus” lol! It’s a Festivus for the rest of us!

  38. Merry Christmas guys! I’m glad you’ll get to spend the holidays with your family. I don’t celebrate Christmas, but I definitely know what it’s like to be alone on a big holiday, and how much you miss family. We had a giant dump of snow over the last few days here in the GTA, just in time to welcome you back. Safe travels! I hope you guys are able to have a meetup while you’re in Canada, it would be lovely to finally meet you!

    On that note, I must get back to studying for exams and cursing U of T, lol.

  39. Fofalooza

    Just have to say that I love Crayon Pop’s video and song. I may get around to checking the other tracks but I make no promises! I don’t know if either of you are familiar with Lupin the 3rd but check out the 2nd series opening and tell me you don’t hear a similarity to a certain song in your list. Also maybe the picture of Fujiko in the thumbnail gives a hint to some inspiration?

    The English title for Crayon Pop’s song is “Lonely Christmas”

  41. Persephone Basilissa

    I don’t think anyone’s mentioned FNC’s Romantic J (CNBLUE’s Lee Jonghyun & Juniel): Love Falls. There’s a sweet romantic Christmas song & MV! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqD_zaJAdUY

  42. I spied a Honey-sempai mug in the bloopers! Glad you are getting use out of it Simon!

  43. ….i pronounce boquet as beau-quet

  44. severely

    I can’t say I’m super into Starship groups, but I’ve always loved their Christmas songs. No lie, it was exciting to see their song come out this year. The rap parts are always a bit awkward for obvious reasons, but the rest of the song always sells me on it. And the videos are cute. <3

  45. TheArrowPen

    I’m with Martina on the bouquet debate. Just wanted to weigh in before I go listen to the songs.

  46. Megan Yoder

    I watched this first thing when I got to work and pretty much made my entire day already. :D

    You guys’ sense of humor is the absolute best! (°ワ°)/

  47. Erica A.

    Miracles in December doesn’t really get any Christmas-ier when you know the lyrics.. The youtuber Silv3rT3ar made an English cover of it, and I think she did an amazing job with it (I’ve replayed it numerous times).. but I still don’t get why it’s a Christmas song, apart from the MV being filmed during winter & a the song having a softer feel >.<" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYk_Rfbo65A

    • I do think it’s related to Christmas. The MV plot is they WISH for a miracle to happen, that is the girl coming back to them-
      being reunited; but it never happens. That’s why it’s sad and
      represents the emotional side of Christmas.You know, since Christmas is a season all about love and sharing and being with your loved ones… And in Asia, is a season most celebrated by couples, so basicaly they’re sad ’cause they want her back, but they can’t; ending up alone.
      So basically while Christmas gives joy to some, it causes gloom/ longing to others. And I believe this Mv is trying to show that bitter side of Chirstmas.

  48. Paige Kosa

    Oh, god. Happy Festivus for the Rest of Us! I see what you did their, Simon and Martina. ;D

  49. Sam Salazar Morales

    OMG! I cried to tears with this post! JAJAJAJAJA THANK YOU GUYS! X’D

    Why most of the songs have sad lyrics? If it is Xmas, they are supossed to be happy and cheerful…I don’t get at all!

    I would love to see you talking about Korean artists doing songs for Japanese Seasons (Summer and Xmas)…they always end-up looking so RIDICULOUS! JAJAJAJA

  50. Heather Chuong

    omg. I’m surprised that they didn’t bring up Jellyfish Entertainment’s Christmas song! THAT’S MY FAVORITE. VIXX OPPAR FOREVAAAAAR.

  51. Cindy Y

    Exo’s song (or at least the chinese one) is about how a girl left them (maybe died) and they want to get her back regretting how selfish and uncaring they were before, but it’s too late and not possible. The super power part was confusing though. but basically after she left they each developed some sort of power (to me it sounded like sm decided that exo needed a concept and tried to add superpowers into it).

  52. disqus_HCmKk76O50

    Well actually, YG just released Bom and Lee Hi’s version of Mariah Carey’s “All I want for christmas is you”… But I suppose S&M filmed this before the song was released. Loved this special btw! I agree about the JYP mv giving the most realistic Christmas feel but I will love SHINee no matter what, even if they are dressed in cute pompoms #shineeworldforlife. Have an awesome Christmas vacation back home Simon and Martina!!

  53. I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU GUYS ARE DOING A P4A VIDEO. THAT IS SUPER FANTASTIC.
    It’s also causing me to have a meltdown because the EatYourKimchi and Nerdfighter universes are colliding in a delightfully unexpected shower of rainbows and unicorns in my head! ALKSJLFKHSDGJH.

  54. Alexandra Huang

    YAY I’m so glad you did a kpop Christmas playlist!!

    A couple more to add though just for listening though… because its HENRY AND AMBER! And they sound so great together! The video is way too short, when it ended I was like “WHAT. It’s OVER???”

    Someday at Christmas http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aKocu2h5YM

    Finally, this thing works! Stupid Firefox, you give me back my captions on youtube and then take away my ability to post on here.
    I will say you hit the nail on the head why I didn’t like EXO’s Miracles in December music video. With the lyrics I got the plot, but that mv. I do agree with you on the fact that there’s no real Christmas feel when it comes to the whole company comes together to do a collaboration. It’s very forced, I like the songs, but it shouldn’t be so hard to get everyone for a couple days to just do a video together. Just have a christmas party the day of the shoot, film it and make them sing at the party. And can we have a happy song? Or just do covers or just translate it into Korean, Hawaii does that all the time and I still like it.

  56. dealott

    I really like secret’s I do I do! I think it has that really festive sound, and the video is cute!

  57. I love the Orange Caramel Song, the video is meh.

  58. Martina, the decorations were lovely! ^^
    The dude with G.Na is Roh Ji Hoon, you would have easily recognized him if he did his signature dance move, the frontal wedgie.
    My favorite Kpop Christmas song is Infinite’s “Lately”. Someone has already posted the video, check it out if you haven’t. It’s not so in-your-face Christmas-ey and maybe that’s why I sometimes listen to it even when it’s not Christmas time.

  59. tinarina

    loved this video :)) so funny. MERRY CHRISTMAS GUISE! and Have a safe flight!

  60. What about BH’s ‘All I want for Christmas is you’ ? :o

  61. Pink_Candy

    Is it because you can only use white on a black canvas?
    (sorry haven’t seen it yet)

  62. Jasmine Johnson

    yg did make a christmas song. Lee Hi and Park Bom did a cover of All I Want For Christmas

  63. Karen Poulin

    SMTOWN’s Christmas album from 2011 was pretty awesome with The Grace and Kangta, and SHINee and BoA’s Christmas songs too! GG, TVXQ and F(x) also had songs. But I’m old school and SHINee biased :P

    I was totally expecting Infinite’s video to be included, Here’s a link. It’s good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZu3fRDrK5c

    MBLAQ has a song too but the video isn’t Christmassy, just a montage and recording footage, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QC3QwxH5vx8

    This will be a great to put together a playlist and annoy my family with on Christmas! XD

  65. Selma Kurnia

    The younger girl is Shin Jihoon from Kpopstar! >.<

  66. When you mentioned the helmets for Crayon Pop and how they would have this and that on them reminded me of this comedy video done by Key & Peele

    Be safe going home and enjoy your lovely family time! =^-^=

  73. I can’t believe you didn’t mention the “ear after ear” in SM’s Santa you Are The One! lol. I love SuJu but that makes me crack up EVERY time I hear it. That’s the whole reason I bought the song off iTunes. That and it’s catchy. ;)

    • Freddie Engberg

      I’m totally with you there, the “ear after ear” is still hilarious after two years! And while S&M are right that the video isn’t very creative, it’s still such a catchy and I feel genually happy song, so I really like it (and that I’m biased, lol)^^

  75. Michikohime

    Here is a few I really like that you miss (maybe since some of them came out this week) :

    - Any Happy Pledis song:
    Mainly the one they made MV for, so “Love Letter” and “Love Love Love”. Even “Winter’s Tale”, from the 2nd album, is good.

    - Mystic 89 – Christmas Wishes:
    It’s the Mystic 89 singers being all festive and stuff. The song is good and the vibe is christmasy.

    - KOYOTE – After Winter (feat. Kal So Won):
    The little girl is so cute. The song is alright.

    - 2BiC – Lonely Christmas:
    This one I’m not quite sure yet, sometimes I like it, sometimes I don’t. That said, it’s still beautifully sung.

    It seems there’s more to come this year, with Park Bom and Lee Hi doing “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and a few other that have Christmad singles pilling up (Ra.D and Wa$$up to name a few).

    There’s also terrible-horrible MV that just came out, like the one from Starship Planet and the one from BESTie.

    You guys are so wonderfully giddy and bubbly this Christmas! Loving all the Christmas themed videos and posts, honestly it’s helped raise my Christmas spirit that has been a tad lacking.

    Thanks for the Christmas video playlist, I’ve only heard a few Kpop Christmas songs. I had no clue the EXO video was such a Debby Downer. I’d heard the song and it was beautiful, but I hadn’t seen the MV. They need a new chipper bubbly goofy full of aegyo Christmas video.

    Simon, now I have Run DMC’s Christmas in Hollis stuck in my head!

    I’m glad you guys made justice to EXO’s “Miracles in December”. I was worried it would get a Full Kpop Monday because it didn’t deserved it. And I am a big EXO stan!
    The song was very pretty but the video blargh…

  78. Jessica Lewis

    I laughed so hard at the bloopers, guise. XD

  79. Genesis Barrera

    Woak guys you have the Miracles of December plot ALL WRONG! Tao uses his magical power to turn back time because he was late to his date but the girl leaves because she never intended to show up to see him. That’s why he cries. And if u listen to the lyrics, it explains the video. They say its their turn to cry that’s why they are all sad. And Sehun’s girlfriend (haha me) left him because some voodoo shit was going down ;) that I have no clue about :)

  80. OH YES When I went to Namsan Tower last winter and I was leaving, at the stairs I saw a Korean woman maybe in her early twenties who was wearing had high heels and was trying to walk down the icy stairs… Luckily she had her boyfriend with her. I really thought she would fall down.

  81. Fafou Them

    I died at 11:46 ! Hey! Ho! To the left XD

  82. Joolee Dee

    Awesome Xmas songs that aren’t completely dated:

    1) Infinite-Lately (cute and catchy)
    2) Jellyfish Entertainment-Christmas for All (beautiful vocals)
    3) Jellyfish Entertainment-Winter Confession (sand art video!)
    4) Pledis Entertainment-Love Love Love (nice Xmas song)
    5) Starship Entertainment-White Love (weird video but cute song)
    6) Starship Entertainment-Pink Romance (fun song)
    7) DMTN Daniel and B2ST Yoseob-First Snow First Kiss

  83. AnnyeongAnnie

    HOLY CRAP are you guys nerdfighters?? I think it’s awesome that you guys are participating in P4A btw!

  84. Hazel Raine

    The E-X-O video was about treating a girl wrong and how they want to turn back time to fix it. But it turns out you can’t bring something back that is lost forever. Go crayon pop Fighting!!! The song makes me go crazy. I love crayon pop!

  85. I laughed so hard i fell out of my bed because of the bloopers!! :D

  86. Sunflower

    I agree on Crayon Pop’s song being epic. However, I didn’t like the dance as much as I like their other dances, but that’s okay. I also really like EXO’s song because it is beautiful and they sing it very well. But I agree that it is very sad. Sometimes I watch it and I feel sad afterwards. So I agree that it doesn’t really seem like a Christmas song. Also, I think the entire thing about Kris’s painting is supposed to be a joke. They have made fun of Kris and his artistic abilities before. He pretends to have talent but he is not very good with drawing. So maybe the blank canvas was part of the joke? Or maybe they were too lazy to put a painting on it. It’s probably the later one.
    Anyway, I really liked this KMM, I was smiling the entire time.

    how can you forget starship entertainment’s ‘snowy candy?’ i think it was better than cube’s one

  90. I know this is old so S&M wouldn’t have picked it for this particular playlist, but I’m so surprised this hasn’t come up in the comments yet! It’s just one of the he most beautiful songs I’ve heard.

    Merry Christmas Simon and Martina from my family to yours {BIG HUGS}.

    I hope that you are ready for snow when you get back, because there is a lot of it here for this time of year. If you have a fanmeet in TO, we will be there, if it’s not Snowmaggeddon…….

    Great video, I liked the effects and it was cool that you talked about each video individually for a while, rather than just listing them.

    Cyber_3 – baking gingerbread cookies…….mmmm……..

  92. Claire Rini Austen

    OH MARTINA, SIMON IS RIGHT ABOUT THE FLOWER THING I WOULD TYPE IT BUT i’M BAD AT SPELLING

  93. Cara Rose

    seeing as this video is twice the usual length of KMM Imagonnasay…. Martina likes Christmas? ;)
    luv it, lika early xmas present!

    I’m finding it hard to like the photo-shoot style kpop MV, seems they pop up more and more. AND In relation to the awkward Cube Ent. vid, agreement over it looking mashed together cause the artists schedule probably overlapped. Originally thought Kpop was changing MV styles, but I think I’m just noticing more how REALLY BUSY the guys are.
    enough with the serious.
    lol at the ever present burning hatred of turtlenecks. HA!

    Now, if you excuse me, I’ll be at JYP House. Dancing in a onezie with 2pm. HAAAAY HHOO!
    ***Merry Christmas y’all***

  94. Jazmin Borda

    I thought that crayon pop song’s name was “lonely Christmas”.

  95. whenever 2ne1 wins your KMM polls (DYLM && Missing You), you ignore it altogether and put up something entirely different. What, we just click and click to vote then you disregard it? Oh well, upto you anyway but can’t hide my disappointment. :/

    • Blueberries

      S&M have said that they will do sometimes different KMM and not take someone from poll. And currently there is 3 winners in the poll since S&M pick one mv from top 3 to make KMM from.

      I’m not sure if I still like new system I like special KMM’s like this one but it takes excitement of voting someone away in my opinion since the chance that your fav mv will get reviewed is rather small so I don’t feel like voting matters as much anymore.

    • 2ne1 is one of the most reviewed acts on kpop music monday. b/w the group and solo vids they’ve been reviewed at least 9 times. also it’s the end of the year, S&M arent the only ones putting up holiday programming instead of the usual stuff.

  96. I’m kinda disappointed that Starship Planet’s Snow Candy didn’t make it in, but it’s probably because it was released later? Also was a little disappointed that mostly only Super Junior sang for the SM video (even though I do like them). Personally, the older SM Town Christmas videos were a lot more fun, especially SM Town Jingle Bells. Anyhoo, I thought this kpop monday was hilarious, especially the Shinee comment. ^^

  97. yiayiane

    I think i should stop watching eyk because i laughed so hard I fell off my chair. And now I’m hurt, but happy !

  98. Alser Shetzer

    This is quite old and it’s a cover (?) but, how cute&adorable was Kevin (before joining UKISS) saying “Feliz navidad, próspero año y felicidad”
    ♡^▽^♡

  99. JoTwinsRock

    All are cute Christmas songs, like SM’s, Crayon Pop’s, JYP’s…
    And then is YG, with Park Bom and Lee Hi, with the creepy xD

  100. Sara Suzanne Berg

    When y’all started talking about how the CUBE and SM videos didn’t have all of the people mixing, I immediately thought of the JYP one. It’s fun to watch all of the artists interact because you just KNOW they’re friends. WHy would they not be? Most probably trained together. Naturally you become friends. SO I like it better.
    I didn’t realize EXO’s song is a ballad.. … until now.
    I can’t wait to go listen to Crayon Pop’s song.
    And I know someone else said it, but YG did just come out with a Christmas song and one. or both. sound funny with some of their pronunciations. The song is good, very well sung, but the pacing is way slower than what I’m used to.

  101. JenniferSakraida

    There is a YG Christmas song! Se7en has the song “Christmas With You” from his Must Listen album. There isn’t any video though.

  102. Giant Christmas sock….bwahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!! Lots of priceless moments in this vid. Thanks for my laughs for the day. Merry Christmas! Enjoy time with your families ^.^

  103. JoTwinsRock

    I’m the only one who notice that they already made fun of cute girls with guns in 2011?? Watch the Music Monday of “2NE1 – I am the best”, they said that it will be funny, that 2NE1 is the only group that isn’t cute and have guns, and Martina acted as a cute girl idol and they gave her a gun and they made fun of that!! Did Crayon Pop watched that??

  104. yay, more videos. I was going through withdrawal ;)

    Anyway, personaly, i think this one has it all:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiF9RQzqPS0

    Happy Hollidays!

  105. mikejonas

    Actually, Crayon Pop’s song’s title IS creative: Its Korean title is “Kkurismas,” which is a pun on “Christmas” (normally spelled “Kkeurismas”) and “Kkuri” (depressing). The English title is “Lonely Christmas.”

  106. Miko Satou

    I laughed at the google search results and smiled at the picture at 2:25 or so.

    At 2:12, the girl is Shin Ji Hoon. She was in Kpop star season 2 and came to TOP 10 of the show. I forgot what place she was in the end thou ( something like TOP 6 ). Someone said that she is going to debut soon…

    I have a question. Since A pink was in the Cube video, was Huh Gak there too or did he not make it?

  107. stilinskiphiliac

    Jellyfish Ent., BESTie and I believe T-ara have released x-mas songs this year as well I think. I’m totally going to take this playlist, add a few songs, and play it all winter and if my parents don’t like it they are feliz navidead to me. Have a safe travel to Canada you guys! Happy holidays~

  108. There’s an awesome video on YouTube of IU, Brian Joo, Youhna, and some other artists singing a Christmas song. The video is called, “Christmas Wish”. It’s really pretty. : )

  109. Caitlin M

    How did Infinite’s Christmas song not make it on here? That is by far THE BEST Christmas music video

  110. Blueberries

    My winter boots have high heels though.. but the heel is wedge-heel which makes them easier to walk in.

  111. Stormcloud28

    This makes me sad. I can only watch the JYP video because I live in Germany now instead of Canada.. :/

  112. Isabel Ruby

    can i just say that i approve of inuc’est [that was the cleverest way of combing nu'est and incest i could come up with on the fly....] and don’t understand how so many people would still be waving at you when you’d seen them at the beginning of the video as well as the middle [jyp party... short-term memory loss land?]

  113. Nina Johansson

    Watching this I feel none-korean, since my balance is horrible and I never wear high heels. :(

    Same time, I live in Gothenburg, which destroys heels as most city streets are paved with cobblestone, and you can quite easily get stuck in between the stones. Mom nearly lost a heel once like that.

  114. Saehee Park

    but… its crayon pop lonely christmas…. not christmas song ㅠㅠ

  115. I’m imagining a Christmas Song from YG Family. Hmmmmm…..

  116. Annette Ong

    Starship’s XMAS songs are awesome too! They’re so familyish in their video for Snow Candy and it’s so shweet and makes me feel all Christmasy when I watch it! Esp since two of my favourite artists/groups are in there – K.will and Sistar <3

  117. Saehee Park

    the guy with the typewriter is the comedian 김기리!! kim gi ri(??)

  118. Alison Scribben

    I have girls climb mountains in high heels in China and Japan :p

  119. You should really check out “pink romance” if you haven’t already, it’s a great christmas song by “Starship planet” with SISTAR, K.Will and Boyfriend.

    The video is also really cute and christmassy :3 It’s my personal favorite kpop christmas song! :D

  120. AminDelotha

    Loved this Music Monday! I have to say though that my favorite Christmas music video is Love Love Love by After School. I love the video and the song. The plot of the video is so cute, and the song really puts me in the Christmas spirit.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLFUhqxFkFA

  121. What about Secret’s christmas song? I do I do? ;^;

  122. jamie vang

    All the Starship Family Xmas songs~! Especially the newly released Snow Candy~

    The Crayon Pop song is STUCK in my head >.>
    Dang it! I want to not like them. And I know I SHOULDN’T. But they’re so adorable >.>

    Also how did neither of these make the list? I know I’m biased but they’re awesome :3

    My favorite kpop songs with chrismas feel:

    Happy Pledis- Love Letter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWx3ZyZ_UFQ
    After School, Kahi, Son Dambi, NU’EST, Hello Venus and some trainees. Not exatly about christmas? but still great song and this song really has that family feel S&M were missing :D

    Ailee- My Grown up Christmas List: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ha3RwFjOg7Q Beatiful chrismas songs in english from Ailee.

    Sunny Hill- Goodbye to romance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkmSxGCGW8Y

  125. I find it funny that the YG Christmas song is actually a cover of All I Want For Christmas Is You.

  126. LillaMy

    OMG the pom poms again. NOT THE POM POMS!!

  127. Hahahaha I really enjoyed this one guys :) It was long and felt slightly ad-lib and we got to see the dorkiness that I love so much. I laughed so hard xD

    On another note: you guys are flying out on my birthday! Therefore, as a birthday gift I have a present I’d like to request. On your way back, please stop by USA and take Justin Bieber back to Canada with you. I’m tired of him (to put it politely) :|

  128. hironyx

    tried typing “bouquet” in google translate and used the text to speech. it’s BOOO-kay.

  129. YG’s song with Bom&Hi is confusing me, the music video isn’t out yet but the teasers are super creepy but the song is so cheerful lol I don’t see the connection yet. Martina and Simon said in the post that they were packing for Canada so they probably had to make the video before all the songs for the year were released, just different schedules guys :) and I highly doubt they wanted to spend time making the video while they are home for the holidays :p

  130. jimmy piplup

    Oh for CUBE you wanted to know everyone’s name?
    The guy with Gina (soloist who used to be a rookie but everyone thinks CUBE forgot about him because he’s only had one song and this one we want a comeback): Roh (or Noh) Jihoon
    The young girl (newest) soloist: Shin Jihoon
    The guy with the bear is a comedian: Kim Kiri
    Huhguk was also there, btw
    And I wanted to see Yoseob and Daniel’s Christmas song, tbh… That was such a cute song (even though it’s kinda old now)

  131. someone made a good point somewhere about EXO’s Miracles in December. The song talks about wanting to stop time and go back to before when he was with her. The person pointed out that they could be talking about a past lover who died. Hence the sad crying and backwards snow. That moment of wanting to go back and thinking it’s possible and then the cold reality slapping you in the face.

    Maybe they made a promise with someone to meet at that time and place, but them not showing up. ect ect. But everyone was confused as fuck when they watched this video don’t even lie fellow EXO fans.

  132. Hi! I found this link in which they explain who the artists are in “christmas song”, http://www.allkpop.com/article/2013/12/united-cube-artists-drop-carol-christmas-song-and-mv-to-spread-holiday-cheer#axzz2njQj7laE , but maybe you already know :)

  133. No Infinite… :/ Lately is so nice though…

  134. Dina Panda-Chan Kitiara

    i wanna see Christmas Psy! although i bet if u make a parody on his song it would be more epic^^

  135. hironyx

    i cracked up really loudly at 2:22 min mark

    I think you guise did these too soon :(

  137. Jessica May

    This arrived just in time to cheer me up! Stuck in bed because I’m sick :/

  138. Roberto Do

    Where Starship Ent. Christmas song? :(

  139. YG is going to release a Christmas song with Bom and Lee Hi ;P

  140. DansheenMasheenChen

    lmao there was this explanation on tumblr about Kris blank canvas… Her theory was that if you try to draw something to a person you love, you just end up with a blank canvas. Because you want to draw something that’s worthy to give them, so you think and think about what to draw, but nothing actually gets painted because in the end nothing would be worthy.
    (This is just what I’ve heard, and it seems like a good explanation so…)

  141. Karina Shum
    Karina Shum

    the unknown girl in the united cube christmas song is shin jihoon!! she was on KPOPSTAR2 and has just recently made her debut :)

  142. Uh, YG will release a song though, a rendition of All I Want for Christmas is You from Park Bom & Lee Hi. But… I don’t think the MV would be any happier than EXO’s one because the teasers are creeping me out.

  143. omg yes, someone please make that happen with T.O.P ahahahahaa

  144. Sijetais

    *One more exam left before I can enjoy Christmas!! TT.TT *yawn* !!
