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!

  1. Here’s to the next 300,000! Like GD, EYK is truly one of a kind!

    Here’s a happy song to celebrate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-N3BjVMWziE

  2. 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

  3. 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)

  4. Hahaha!!! I actually found that pretty funny too, since I always joke about Big Bang endorsing Samsung when they always use Apple in their daily lives….hmmmm….. :p

  5. My favourite Music Monday moment was with the B1A4 “OK”, when Simon started to call them “Bilasa”. Me and my friends can’t even remember their real group name sometimes, but when we say Bilasa – we all know who are we talking about :D
    The same with Junsu’s “Intoxication” – “kiss me and touch me, rub my bananas” :D

    Thank you EatYourKimchi for so many inside jokes. You guise are soooo naaaastyyyyyy!

    @ciasteczkowyPotwor87

  6. “Give me the biggest Banstamp available dipped in the freshest blood of 15 virgin bunnies” – this was the most funnies moment in all the Music Monday episodes for me (Even though it was the 1 year anniversary, it still counts as Music Monday, right? :D). I laughed so hard!!! I think I rewatched that “Ministry of Banishment” episode for 3 times!

    (youtube account: arta21)

  7. What? I have to pick only one Kpop Music Monday moment? That is impossible! You guys have been with me every week since I discovered your site two years ago (wish it was earlier :D)
    I’ve been including your funny vocabulary and adaptations of Kpop videos in my normal life and my friends now do not freak out when I loose something and start singing ‘I lost my XXXX, Ripito Fipito Sipi Slow Motion!, or ‘Soy un Dorito!’ or ‘Bunnies are Puffy!’ etc. Now I moved back to another country so I’ll have to recruit more Nasties here! UHHH U SO NASTY!!
    Also, I specially loved the ‘How to dance Kpop’ videos edition, I always end up trying to copy the steps in my room while not breaking anything in the process ;) (Super Junior’s Sorry, sorry was epic lol)
    Martina: I also find Turtlenecks annoying so when I saw your moment back in Canada destroying some tshirts I laughed so hard.
    So, yeah, THANK YOU for everything you have been doing these past years (Spudgy too!Love him! and Meemers too! soo cute ^o^) and wish you all of the same happiness you have brought to your fans. I will surely remember you when I’m an ajumma! Lets live Eat Your Kimchi Style forever!

  8. So…I was gonna ask where the clip from Face Arousal Raunchy Thrusting was, and then I realized it’s from your guys’ 2010 Top Ten Kpop dances video… ><
    That was actually the first video I watched by you, and it was also the first video I ever watched that had anything to do with Kpop what-so-ever. So, thanks guys. Thanks for brainwashing me.
    Anyways, ever since then I've been watching all your guys' videos and every time I do I'm so glad that my friends made me watch that first video back in 2010 because you. guys. are. AWESOME!!!
    And you've been making me laugh ever since. So, I really wanted to thank you both for doing what you do and being so dedicated to Kpop and your fans (OOOOOH we're so nasty!) XDD

    As for my favorite Kpop Music Monday moment… (well, aside from the ones that have already been mentioned), it would probably have to be Mr. Pedo Bear from Teen Top's Supa Luv. I just remember watching that video and laughing at the entire thing, (that video was and is one of your most hilarious, in my opinion), but that bit about Mr. P using his Korean boy dispenser still makes me lol. (and I also lol'd when Mr. P became Pedo Bear while he was in the shower XDDD)

    My Youtube user name is: thatssumgoodcurry

  9. Yes! more makeup tutorials for all your different eye makeups! I really liked your purple eyes!

  10. Aww you guys should’ve done a K-pop review of both That XX and One of a Kind here.
    Not fair…another GDragon review by next week…LOL well its alright. Bad timing of MV releases xD

    This review was pretty good though. Interested to see what you guys are gonna have to say about That XX :-)

  11. i think the most memorable moment from KKM is when you guise reviewed BIG BANG’s ‘monster’ in Canada and Simon was seen running out of a garage (pretending to be T.O.P.)……a ball was thrown at his face and he had a neutral face on…that was so jokes…i busted out laughing so hard that my parents thought i was crazy….they dont get you guise….lol

    funniest thing ever!! love you guise!

  12. Martina’s makeup looks great! I always try to make mine look like that but it never works. Wish I knew her secret

  13. Ooh favorite kpop music monday moment. that’s a toughie. I’m a relative newbie (like since January) but I definitely loved the cologne moment in Monster. Hilarious. but I have to agree with like everyone that “AAAAAHHH lost my paaaants” is great and frequently sung by my little brother around the house. Pantless: minus five to diplomacy and he would say. Basically to choose a favorite is impossible and for all I know my new favorite will be in your next video. Keep up the good work! :)

  14. one of my favorite moments on kpop mondays was when you did the skit for Tick Tack where simon and martina were pretending to be members of Ukiss and martina asked simon to make some peanut butter and then he crushed it. I think it’s so funny!

  15. (youtube username: TheKazenoSuna)

    My favourite kpop moment was in B1A4’s “Baby I’m Sorry” review when Martina killed the crazy stalker fangirl with a baguette XD (Simon’s English review made the episode even better XD)

  16. My fav KMM moment? First thing that comes to my mind is: “They fly so high, they touch the sky and punch the harmless eagle in the eye” – EPIC! And also – I know it can’t be described as “moment” – I love all the random characters like Mordney, Brohoho, Dr Whatsherfrigginname, time for kisses girl and others :D And how you notice all these little things: Max’s mysterious box, a fridge full of pickles and so on.
    And lastly- what I guess I like the most is the fact that after these two years you guise still present your honest opinion instead of saying what blindli-in-love fans want you to say. Keep it that way!

  17. favaroite EYK moment is simions ohh you so nasty! BUBBLE POP dance! lol hillarious and way better then the original! >.< lol not really but it was a funny moment tht i cnt forget (youtube username: maymilove

  18. My favorite kpop music monday moment has to be the “BUNNIES. ARE. PUFFY”, mostly because I’m a die hard B.A.P fangirl and when I heard that the first time, my bum was on the floor.
    ….
    Get it? Because I..y’know..laughed my ass off…*ehem*

    ANYHOW I just thought that was pretty genius, considering the masked bunny is their mascot and all.
    Also just because I have to say it, my other favorite moment was when Simon lost his pants in super slow (exo) motion. I mean come on. I wish I could lose my pants in super slow motion, that would be SO COOL.

    Favorite KMM : When you guys always supporting JYJ in your videos, thats really so cool of you.
    as you said: “JYJ is f**king blocked in Korea”
    I’m glad you care… thank you simon and martina.

  20. I’m going to post here because it’s not totally clear whether we’re supposed to leave our answers under the 100th episode or the 100th episode special (though, logically, I’m guessing it would be the 100th episode… anyway).

    Where to start? You do realise you’ve set an impossible task this time, don’t you? I could easily say your little kitten’s reactions (particularly when it wandered across in this video), or the Mordney Present vampire or the Ministry of Banishment for practically ever song that Junsu did, or the spoof versions of the songs you do (Eat Your Kimchi style was brilliant). Max Time! had me laughing for hours (I showed that to my friends), but the Music Mondays I love most are the ones where you’ve done B.A.P.’s songs, and I have to say… I think the Music Monday moment that just pips all the others is the Power episode when Simon was dubbing over Martina because she lost her voice (and the Shower song). I don’t know how many times I re-watched it; it was just genius. I showed it to some not-into-K-pop friends when they came over to visit me in Belgium and they ended up insisting that we watch all the Music Mondays thus far and some of the songs so that they could understand all the in-jokes (I was supposed to be taking them around Brussels that afternoon). One of them commented she really wished somebody would do what you’re doing for Western pop music.

    Sorry… that was kinda long….

    I would also like to say that I have never been able to view a packet of Doritos in the same light after that SHINee episode.

    And before I forget: youtube name = soullessgingerninja

    Thank you for the wonderful videos! Helped me settle in to what could otherwise have been a terrifying ex-pat year for somebody just out of school. You two are awesome.

    And I vote for TVXQ in balloons. There’s nothing that beats those animal costumes XD

    • Edit: I just remembered something else. I can’t remember who you were reviewing, but it was when a couple of different artists had used the same brick-walled room as the one U-KISS had filmed part of one of their music videos in, and the deeply-meaningful message of this particular Music Monday video was (quoting Martina), “U-KISS WANT THEIR ROOM BACK!” It makes me choke with laughter every time I think about it. Which is quite a lot.

  21. I don’t need an extra t-shirt (I already have a sexy Spudgy shirt ^^), but I thought I’d share my favourite parts of your KMMs thus far:

    The episodes with your parents.

    In fact, I like all the ‘cameos’ your friends make in your videos (like that couple from AnsanAnswers, Brendon, Martina’s friends in the cafe when Simon dances in, Nick – who I think opened some lockers for you, the friends who came over to play monopoly deal and drink milk, etc). As Simon said regarding GD&TOP’s High High, “It’s nice to see [Simon and Martina] getting out of their boxes and interacting with the real world. Real girls!!” HAHAHAHA!!! xD
    Especially since you entered the stage when all you did were indoor videos. Now you have WANKs and FAPFAPs, and good on ya for making that change. ^^b

    But I especially liked the episodes with Simon’s dad, when he visited Korea back in the day, the episodes with Martina’s parents when they came to Korea as well, and also their KMMs in Canada. I just feel really touched when I see how supportive your parents are of your bizarre jobs (I mean, you’re not rich lawyers/doctors), to the point that they happily act out embarrassing skits in your videos for the whole world to see – and by embarrassing, I mean, uh, very professional and entertaining *cough*

    ……….*runs away* ((((((((((((( >_>

  22. The number of times I randomly start singing ‘ I lost my pants’ is quite scary, actually……

  23. Youtube username: BunBunJaegseun

    Hi Simon, Martina, Spudgy, & Dr.Meemerworth ♥,
    I have been following you since the 1st KMM & I just want to say that you 2 are just amazing! I have to say my favorite KMM moment(s) are when Simon kept singing “Kiss & touch me, rub my banana.” That is my alarm for when you guys post up a new video (: Also, I love when Simon sang “I’VE LOST MY PANTS” I swear, I sing this for everything. Ex: “I’ve lost my phone! Hope to god it’s in my pants” &… anytime Martina sings or smiles, anytime Spudgy dances at the end of the episode, and anytime you two make me laugh ♥ Those are the best parts of KMM! Thanks for the memories!

  24. My favorite moment was when Spudgy raged because of Zelo and Ricky’s blue hair. Spudgy being cute is a bonus. Oh, and also Junsu’s fridge full of pickles! :D-PwNdPiEP.S: I love KMM!!

  25. i want a t-shirt!!!

    my favorite kmm moment has got to be the swan dance from Girl’s Generation “be my baby” and the fact that you kept doing it again and again in other videos, and wanks and stuff. it’s just the most hilarious thing to me. also, i’d never heard the song when you guys reviewed it and i grew to love it so much and now it’s definitely one of my favorites ^_^

    although… does my favorite moment have to be one of the ones you showed in the video above? because if so, i think your gangnam style parody is hands down the winner. plus, you included all your past inside jokes in the lyrics, which was pretty awesome.

    oh and i also want to say congratulations on the 100th episode. i think kmm are definitely your best videos and what you guys are famous for. i’ve only been following you for about a year, but i actually went back through your archives to watch all the past kmms… you guys are THAT funny. so well done *clapclap* actually, i just recently got to the very first ones, and i almost choked when Martina was doing the video battle at the end and saying some thing like “120 people voted for vid no.1 and 140 people for vid no.2. wow, thanks guise!” and i was like “wait… she’s excited about 300-ish people voting?!?” *neverending laughter* Still. i think it’s awesome you guys have evolved so much. don’t you?
    As for the GD kmm though, guise… it was not your best… why so short???
    oh, but i agree with the “wild and young bit”… actually, i couldn’t hear he was saying that at all at first, i thought he was saying something in korean… fail T_T
    PS: my youtube name is the same as this.

    PPS: i’m sad you guys didn’t talk about GD making-out with the giant Barbie…

    PPPS: Martina, your make-up and hair-styling is the hottest yet in this video ^_-

  26. somehow this music monday seems ‘deep’ with all analyzing attempt

    and I prefer GD-one of a kind!

  27. I have to say one of my favorite K-pop Music Monday moments would be when you guys are saying “BROHOHO” . I always laugh every time you guys mention that word! :P …and it’s still hilarious until now. One of my favorites also would be Batoost and Bilasa :) Every time I see them on the internet or watch their videos, I always say those words (Bilasa & Batoost).It’s like it’s always automatic that I will say it every time I see them :) Haha

    HAPPY 100th KPOP MUSIC MONDAY EPISODE! Looking forward for more videos!!

  28. 100TH EPISODE HAPPY DANCE~~~~~~!!!

    Wow….it does NOT feel like 100 weeks of Music Mondays! (well….probably 98…or 97…since you missed some for important reasons lol)

    But! Out of all of the ups…downs…lame-ness and such…

    The most unforgettable Music Monday had to be the DBSK Keep your head down week. It was full of laughs, tears, and anger throughout the entire 6 minutes and 36 seconds.

    such…a….great…..video….

    ……yet so lame LOL

    oh! youtube ID is: littlespazz1914

    kthxbye!

  29. Although you guise have had so many memorable moments, which will go down in KMM and K-pop history, one of my all times favourites was during your 1 Year Anniversary for KMM, when you were talking about Itaewon Freedom (DUNUN DUN DUN ITAEWON) and wondering how people will someday make fun of our culture.
    “I am apologetic, I am apologetic, I am apologetic”, “There is a glass panel device between me and the female robot that I desire. I will now commence to lower that glass pane device”, and the best of all time: “HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA” “Oh no, he is infected by the Kanye Virus”
    Never ever gets old. Congratulations on 100 episodes, and here’s to hundreds more!

  32. my favourite EYK moment is when spudgy is angry towards zelo and ricky for copying his blue fur.

  33. Youtube: fatjuicy

    lol, my absolute fave moment was when you guys reviewed Psy’s “Gangnam Style”

    and Simon was recreating the dance in several public locations, one being in an elevator.
    LOL! I could not stop laughing and the look on that other dude’s face, you know, the one standing over Simon while hip thrusting, was awesome.
    Props to you for even doing any of that in the first place.

    Congratz on your 100th episode!

  34. Spudgy is surprisingly professional when Meemers suddenly attacks his junk….OOOoo she’s so nasty!! and at such a young age…*sniff*…so proud.

  35. its a tie between the Bilasa “I like it” robots and the swan dance. Both had me crying laughing weeks after just thinking about it XD

    and special ep was hilarious ! Rofl!
