Hello all you Nasties!

This here, today, is our 100th Kpop Music Monday! Thanks to a all of you for sticking with us for so long, and for not booing us off stage (or the internet). For our special, we’ve got some things we want to do, which we’ll mention at the end of this post. For now, though, let’s start with our review G Dragon’s “One of a Kind.” If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out here:


So, as for the video itself, let’s begin with a disclaimer: there’s far too much for us to talk about in this video. There are tons of different approaches to take, tons of different talking points. We could have talked about the symbolism the entire time, but our video’s already 10 minutes long, and we kinda want to keep these videos no ridiculously long. Then we could have talked about G Dragon’s weird hair, which – it seems – a lot of people don’t like, from the comments we’ve read at least.

One of the things we don’t really get to talk about for Kpop Music Mondays, though, is how much we disagree about songs sometimes. We really disagreed about this song and video, but talking about it thoroughly in video would take too long. That’s what this site’s for, yay! Unadulterated rambling!

OK, so here’s the deal: the imagery of G Dragon hanging with his crew and looking hard – we’re not sure how we feel about that. Well, Martina feels no way about it, but I get the hibbly jibblies watching it. I don’t know why. I can’t fully put my finger on it. I think it’s because, to me, to look hard with your crew is something that suggests street cred, which – yes I know I myself don’t have any – but I don’t think GD has any, either. Am I wrong here? Maybe he’s a lot more gangsta than he lets on. I could be wrong, but I don’t think he is gangsta or hood in any way, and so this screams of insincerity to me, and it makes me feel icky. Sure: maybe GD is just acting here, like he is when he’s playing tennis. I don’t think he’s sincerely trying to say he’s a tennis player, so why should I think he’s sincerely trying to be gangsta? I don’t know guise; I don’t know. Help me through this! Am I misunderstanding something here? Martina sure thinks so, but we can’t put the words to it properly.

Anyhow, if you like the song more than Simon does (it’s alright, not not GD’s best stuff), you can pick it up via iTunes, though, that’s only a music video link. Can’t find the link to the song itself. Hrrm.

OK! That’s it for now. I feel like we can’t have all too serious a talk here about the video (sorry for people looking for a more protracted discussion) because we’re just happy to have reached what is, to us, a pretty big milestone!

So, for starters, here’s our special Music Monday video. It’s pretty much a compilation of our favourite Music Monday jokes ever, the jokes we keep on using over and over again. If you’re new to Kpop Music Monday, then this will serve as a primer to our lame humour. If you’ve been around for a while, hopefully this will give you a few chuckles.

BE WARNED, THOUGH: this is over 18 minutes long! So, you’re gonna need to have some free time on your hands to get through it all:


Ha! We couldn’t help but squeak out a few awkward laughs out loud in the coffee shop as we were editing this. Seriously, guise: our skits are so incredibly lame, and we can’t help but laugh, not because they’re funny, BUT BECAUSE THEY’RE SO LAME.

Anyhow, we want to thank you for watching our videos and for letting us continue to do this. So, we’d like to give away some Eat Your Kimchi shirts to you awesome people. Yes, it’s not a Kpop CD, but we didn’t know what CDs to pick. GD? That’s just this episode: what about the 99 others? Know what I mean? We’ll do other Kpop CD giveaways later, for sure, as we always do.

So, we’re giving away an Eat Your Kimchi shirt, a Bilasa shirt, a Batoost shirt, and a Spudgy shirt. If you want any one of these, here’s what you gotta do to win!

    That will bring me cute GD~ {I hope}
    300,000 subscribers :) Chukayoo.

  15. When I read about Simon’s heeby jeebies, it totally reminded me of the feeling I got when I first heard/watched the song/video. In fact, after seeing the clips from the beginning in the teaser, I was sort of hesitant to watch the video to begin with.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love GD, and I love the fact that he’s so involved in the creation of his and Big Bangs songs – it makes me respect him much more as an artist – but when I saw and heard the attempted Gansta-ness, all I could think of was all the times I’ve seen him acting like a goofy doofus over the past 6 years.
    I have noticed – and I think it’s something GD realizes and admits – that when it comes to music, he has a tendency to take himself very seriously. Since he’s a serious writer and producer, I don’t have a problem with that. But seeing his gangsta scene, I was worried that it had turned into him taking HIMSELF too seriously in a totally different way, and like Simon, I just didn’t buy it.

    The more that I listened to it though, it reminded me that he really is a talented rapper, and although he hasn’t spent time around any actual hoods, he has spent years and year (pre and post debut) surrounded by the Korean hip hop scene, so I guess I’m willing to give him some credit.

    What was more reassuring, though, was the fact that not all of his songs on this album are him trying to act hard, but just him being the wonderfully talented GD. That’s what really sold it for me in the end.

  16. Dig the Kpop … Dig the Audio Forensicks Remix? Listen to it and hate it or dig it…


  17. EYK’s analysis always lets me see more into the videos than just them as MVs.

  18. There’s a 500 comment cap on Google+ :{

  19. Oh dear God… I think I might have squealed whet Eat Your Kimchi Style song has started. It’s just… I can’t contain the feels,it was just so adorably hilarious!
    While I’m here, I’d like to say that you guys are seriously amazing. I wish everything will work out with your business visa and whatnot =) (say hi to Spudgy and Dr.Meemersworth!)

  20. My favorite Music Monday is Psy- Gangnam Style. I love this episode because the remix and that it has all the inside jokes. I hope that Music Monday will be the same or even better in Seoul.
    Love Your Nasty from Hawaii.

  21. Soy un Dorito!!!!!! I love that! Seriously, best Kpop music monday EVER!!!! Well at least for me it is. My favorite use of that joke is during BigBang’s Monster review. I like how Simon is doing a crossword puzzle and he says “hmmm….an 11 letter word for Taemin in Spanish? Soy Un Dorito.” I love that! I seriously can not eat or even look at Doritos without singing/shouting “SOY UN DORITO!!!!” Which makes for an awkward time at the grocery store. I even got my 10 year old sister in on the joke! At first she thought I was insane shouting “soy un dorito” but after I explained it to her and showed her what “soy un dorito” was all about she loved it and now she’s shouting “SOY UN DORITO”. So basically when we’re at the store together you’ll probably hear “SOY UN DORITO! I’m so curious YEAH! SOY UN DORITO!!!!!” Thanks Simon and Martina for not only giving me and my sister a bonding moment but fot makingh my Mondays a little less suckie :)

  22. My favorite KPOP MMM was (hard to pick ) either in the U-KISS 330 one “Damn you so good at Mario Kart girl!” and Simon making out with the pillow. Or in the Japanese version of Replay by SHINee when Simon was being Jonghyun and singing. “Kiss and touch me rub my bananas” LOL. Poor Martina…

    YT- hobooncouch567

  23. My favorite moment is when Martina nipple teased Leeteuk in Sexy, Free and Single. It took me forever to finish watching that episode because I kept rewinding that scene. It was sooooo funny! Hahahah. youtube.com/chikaturrm

  24. My favorite got to be EAT
    YOUR KIMCHI STYLE!!! When I sing gangnam style it instead turns to turns
    you guy’s version XD although I hAve not been NASTY for more than a
    year… I understand 90% of the inside jokes~~
    The episode I also
    love a lot is BIGBANG MONSTER. Martina’s hatred toward turtle necks is
    so hilarious that even a few days after watching it I would laugh when I
    think about it at random times :))
    The other skits in that episode
    are reallllllly funny, I think it’s an all-time one of my favorite
    episode. Well a smallllll part is because I’m a VIP… Whatever just
    really really love this episode!!
    Ps. I also really like the random mentions of TOP in other episodes. Few of my favs:
    M: hold on mister I ain’t gonna run if you are just gonna chase me with a knife.
    S: n-no, im not….. look, is that TOP over there?!
    M: OMG. TOP~~ (runs)
    S: hahaha..
    M: yeah, I don’t blame her…
    S: I know what kind of hat I would want…tada, RANCH hat.
    M: I know what kind of hat I would want too… Tee hee, look it’s a tiny TOP TOP hat♥

    Love love these, please Continue to make more awesome video, S&M !!!! Hwaiting!!

  25. I think my favorite would be the “EatYourKimchi Style”! That parody have all EYK’s catch phrases rolled into one.. it’s awesome!! ;)

  26. My favorite scenes were in MBLAQ’s Cry KMM, you did the segment about raising money so that Kpop stars could get umbrellas to prevent themselves from having things like wet socks. But my favorite favorite thing was Simon’s underwater photo shoot. I loved how he complained about the little things that could happen, and it totally sounded like a me type thing to do. That was my very first introduction to EatYourKimchi. I saw the icon of Simon every time I looked up MBLAQ and I’m so glad my sister made me click on it. Now, whenever I think of EatYourKimchi the first thing my mind pictures is that image of Simon, in his loneliness bedsheet, wearing nose plugs. XD

  27. Congratulations Simon and Martina!~ I found eatyourkimchi thru your music mondays, when you did the U-Kiss – Neverland review. I hadn’t watched mv reviews before, bc I thot I wuldnt like them, but after a few weeks of watching your Music Mondays, I was hooked. I started to your WTFs &TL;DRs and regularly too. I look forward to watching your videos after school. One of my favorite Music Mondays was when Simon put on a wig similar to Taemin’s hair. The gif of Simon with a Dorito was so funny! I liked seeing the gif of taemin saying Soy Un Dorito on tumblr too. My friends and I love tht so much, and we always say Soy Un Dorito when we listen to Sherlock together. It became my favorite misheard lyric keke. ^^ I also like how Simon started calling B1A4 Bilasa. I call them Bilasa now too :3 There are many other skits I like, but this has to be like one of the best. Thanks so much for giving me something to look forward to and helping every one of us become more aware of Korean stuffs! ~witheredbutterflies on youtube ^^.

  28. Well I couldn’t choose just one episode so I chose three. Your reviews of “High High” by GD and Top, “Shock” by B2ST, and “Ayy Girl” by JyJ. These are the first videos I showed my best friend and that is what got her into K-pop. She didn’t used to like it but she love those three songs and started listening to it. So thats when we really became best friends! Now we always joke about your videos and actually use it in part of our vocabulary! Every time we say hi I go “AYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY GIRL!!!!” and roll down my sexy window. Everybody else is so confused but I guess its just really fun for us. Now it has evolved into “AYYYYY BABY GIRL! WASSUP!” thanks to B.A.P.’s No Mercy. Plus, High High was her introduction to her now favorite K-pop band. After that song she became a total V.I.P. High High is still one of her favorite songs! And “Shock” is too! I actually did an art project at school based on it! I hid B2ST in the project too, and to this day my best friend still calls it btoost, and the same for B1A4. BILASA CONQURER OF KITTIES AND TEENAGE GIRLS HEARTS!!!!!! Your jokes are really part of our everyday vocabulary. When we laugh we both go BROOHOOHOO and hold a mustache up th our faces! Maybe we should open up a K-prop shop too… Also every time we buy doritos at school, were like SOY UN DORITO!!!! That was my signiture for my email for the longest time! SOY UN DORITO!!! And I was covinced a few of my friends had pastelpantophilia!!! I was convinced! I just bought red skinny jeans though so I guess I have been infected too… maybe thats a good thing. Oh and every time she says something naughty I’m like “OOOOOOOO you so nasty!”. Also the “I LOST MY PANTS! RIPITO FLIPITO SLOW MOTION!” Like just the other week I lost my pencil and she said “I LOST MY PENCIL! RIPITO FLIPITO SLOW MOTION!” Aren’t we awsome! And last summer I went to India, she said, ” BRING BACK A GORILLA SO WE CAN MAKE THE BLOCK B JACKETS!” She loves Nalina too! I almost brough back a gorilla too! And we also both agree Junsu is a special case with his bananas and his bannishment… Plus every time a vampire comes on T.V. we are like, this is Mordney present! This is man bra gift for you! And then we question the vampire and ask him Y U NO WEAR MAN BRA! And thatk god for Eat Your Kimchi Style, it reminded me of why I fell in love with Eat you kimchi in the first place! It was almost as good as the original, almost… And my favorite acronym of the year… FART
    Best thing ever!!! Also our new favorite toy is… LEGO! U MAD SIMON! U MAD! Overall I just really want to thank you for enhancing our vocab,, even though we are the only two who get it. I just really want to thank you, you helped me and my best friend be best friends. You really gave us something to band over, we really, really love your stuff. I mean our everyday lives are influenced by you, I think Simon actually helped me in Language Arts! So in the end, HAPPY 100 EPISODES!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! I can’t say that enough and… EAT YOUR KIMCHI STYLE!!!!!!!!

  29. Next week’s gonna be That XX. Another GDragon video review
    September is the Month of The G-Dragon :-)

  30. Alternative lyrics to Ugly… CANNOT UNHEAR!!!!

  31. my favourite KMM moment is UKISS 0330, “BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO GIRLFRIEND!!” I thought you would include it because of Miss Dial Tone, such a sweet girl :) That was actually the best episode, I just couldn’t contain the laughter within, it was just too good. My crazy adorable Dongho and his creepy lurking hot friends (they’re still lurking~~Eli’s in the toilet with dongho in doradora :P) This was the episode where we discovered love shows and Aj’s love of trigonometry^^^ Even Mordney was present^^^ The only thing that was missing was Kiseop’s manbra, ahhh such a shame, it’s the must have item for someone with super human man strength :P

  32. Simon your version of GD’s AY YO! sounds like Joe Pesci to me. To which now when my cat misbehaves I yell at her AY YO! Quit scratching the couch! in that same tone of voice you use…so hence I sound like Joe Pesci (O_O)

  33. My favorite was when simon dress as Top and reenact the scene in BigBang’s music vid “Monster”. I exploded with laughter as simon ran out of the burning collapsing garage in chaos then later compaired it with the calm walk, “always be on Top…Top cologne”. The additon with the soccer ball as it came flying towards simon’s face was EPIC. I replayed it everytime! Plus good luck with the new business in seoul!!

  34. My favorite moment of music Mondays was all the many Kpop song you guy messed up for me lol. For example, when EXO debuted. I kept seeing that song everywhere. I said, “N, I won’t watch it.BIGBANG FOR LIFE!” Then I clicked on your music monday. My roommate was in the dorm at the time. We both fangirled so much that day we watched that video 2 times in a row everyday for months to come. I got my roommate to watch Kpop videos and download kpop song on her ipod by watching you guys. You messed up the song for me however when Simon said “I lost my pants” . At that point I though of R kelly. Por que. But I still love that song so much. Thank you both for the memories ! -Felicia

  35. Martina, I love your eyes in this video!

  36. Which is my favorite moment?? You’re asking a question which is impossible to answer. Do I pick the “rolling down my sexy window” dance/pickup line? Do I pick the “Soy un Dorito?” Perhaps the “Bunnies Are Puffy” rap? I had to replay that so many times!! XD

    But no. Some of my favorite moments are when your parents are involved in the videos! I love that skit in the video about your new apartment with Martina’s mom with the cookies! :D I know that’s not Music Mondays, so I’m going to go with the moment in the Shinee Hello video with Simon and his Dad when he gave him a special “gift.” “Hello” “Do you know me?” “This is Mordney present” “Thank you” I love the look on your Dads face! ;D I love how he grabbed the gift and had a suspicious look on his face as he closed the door! ! Hahahaha yeah, great moment. XD
