So, this isn’t a regular Music Monday. We didn’t talk about the song as we usually do. This was a special event for us, so we made a special video. INB4 ALL THE PARODIES! Also, we worked FOREVER on this video. We made the song all day Sunday, and worked on it all day. In fact, we’ve been awake now for 22.5 hours straight. But we’re so excited, and we hope you like it. Also, we’d be super happy – if you liked the vid – that you like and share it on YouTube. Or, if you’re feeling extra nice, share it with Psy on Twitter by clicking this link. Let’s see if Psy appreciates the Nastiness :D

Well, before you actually watch our video, you should probably see Psy’s “Gentlemen” so you could know what we’re parodying. Check it out here:

 

So, a few things we’ll talk about. We’d like to talk about Psy’s video and then talk about our own. We usually give our thoughts on a song for Music Monday, but didn’t have the chance to do so this time. Is this the next Gangnam Style? Do we like the song? Where does it miss the mark?

Psy’s “Gentleman” Reaction

For starters, let’s just say we love this song, as much, if not more than “Gangnam Style.” That’s a difficult statement to make, though, because we can’t listen to Gangnam Style without the overwhelming weight of its context affecting our perception of it. It’s probably one of the biggest songs, if not THE biggest song, of the century, and it’s difficult listening to it now without remembering that. The song was great when it came out. Now, though, we heard it so much that it hurts us a bit when we hear it, and I’m sure we’ll have the same response to “Gentleman” if it ever gets as popular. Hypothetically, if both songs came out at the same time, however, which one would we like more? That’s a tough choice to make, because both are ridiculously infectuous.

I will point out, though, that I do notice one difference between the two songs that I think might weigh in Gangnam Style’s favour. For Gentleman, I don’t hear that same anthemic chant that I felt for Gangnam Style. People can all shout along to AYYYYYYYYYY SEXY LAYYYDAYYYY on the top of their lungs. Gentleman is more smug, and doesn’t make you shout in the same way. I mean, you can shout out “WET PSYYYYYY” or reappropriate it to “WEST SIIIIDE!” but that’s not even that shoutalongable as AYYYY SEXY LAYDAY, and not as universal! A “West Side” shout would be something more appreciated in Los Angeles than it would be in New York, and I’m not sure how many West Sides are in the rest of the world, you know? Sexy Ladies, though, and hollering at them, is universally understandable.

I want to talk a bit about the universality of Gentleman as well, and how Psy tackled his Worldwide audience. Gangnam Style had Psy blow up exponentially, and, with Gentlemen, a lot of people wanted to see what he did next, if he could win the world over like he did before. To us, though, it seems like Psy didn’t try to win over the world this time. Gentleman seems a song made for his Korean audience instead. It is a throwback to the Abracadabra dance, which explain’s Ga-In’s appearance in the video. And the use of the cast of Infinite Challenge seemed…forced? Having Yu Jae Seok in the elevator was flawlessly done. He had the same suit as in Gangnam Style, and his role was a funny one, and fit in with the video theme of Psy being a jerk to everyone. But the rest of the people in the video? What was it with the hugging and swaying over Psy at 1:22? Maybe it’s something Korean audiences will appreciate more, but it didn’t really fit with the rest of the video, you know? And the skunking in the park? I’m not sure how well those translate.

But the point of this isn’t for us to complain. What I’m saying is this: Psy has been around for, what, 13 years? He’s been big Worldwide for 1. I think he’s going to focus on the people and the country that supported him most, and not focus on the people that just NOW find him cool. His dedicated audience will stay dedicated, and so he’ll reward them with references they’ll appreciate more, instead of trying to please his new and quite possibly very fickle audience, many of whom really want to see him fail and just to dismiss him as one hit wonder. And that’s not us saying that this song isn’t as good to us as was Gangnam Style. That’s just us saying that it might be difficult for this to live up Gangnam Style, because it doesn’t have things which we think helped skyrocket it to fame to begin with, and – in a way – turtles itself in.

Eatyourkimchi Like a Man

Well, now that we talked about Psy a bit, let’s talk about our video, which was THE MOST DIFFICULT VIDEO WE EVER SHOT. We’ve got stories to tell!

1) We did the bridge dancing scene IN THE EXACT SAME SPOT PSY DANCED. Exact same. Soo Zee looked at the video and was like “hay! I think that’s ______ bridge” (I can’t remember what it’s called). So we all took a taxi there, found the spot, and framed it allllmost exactly. We had a great time there, and were happy with the shots we got. We forgot to factor in one thing, though: transportation. We took a taxi there, and it gladly dropped us off, but NO TAXIS WOULD PICK US UP WHEN WE WERE DONE. We even called taxis and none of them wanted to come out there. PFFFFT! So we had to walk a long way, underdressed and cold, to the subway. That took up a good hour of our time, just trying to find a WAY to get back.

2) We picked the wrong Kimchi to work with. We love kimchi. It’s great! This kimchi, though, wasn’t kimchi for eating, but for cooking. It’s great for putting in ramen, but eating straight up? Nooooo! This kind was very sour. So, we didn’t really enjoy the scenes of us eating the actual kimchi. We also didn’t plan out the margherita scene all too well, since we wanted a slush margherita so we could pick out the kimchi from the drink and enjoy it afterwards. We ordered the liquid kind, unfortunately, so when the kimchi went in, the drink was ruined :( Side note the bar we shot the scene in is awesome. It’s called the Lounge. It’s right beside our studio, on the hill. The owner speaks English fluently, and the drinks are PROPER. It’s hard to find proper mixed drinks in a lot of Korean bars, but this place gets their mixed drinks right. Check it out if you’re in the area, and you might see us there :D

3) Don’t make fun of our bad song, ok?! We’re so sucky at making music. We didn’t just rip off Psy’s song, because that’d be copyright infringement. So we made it ourselves, from scratch, and it’s lame as all hell. We’re learning how to make music. We’re not as comfortable with music software as we are with video software, but I’m sure, if we were given enough time, we’d learn how to fiddle around with it enough to be able to put out something decent. Four years from now, you wait. We’ll be droppin fat beats bigger than Gangnam Style. WORD!

Anyhow, we’ve got a lot of bloopers for this, TONS MORE BLOOPERS than actual footage, because we messed up so much. Check out the blooper reel…….no, not reel. More like, blooper marathon. We’re so bad at acting!

  1. As English teachers I was hoping you would comment on the nonsensical “mother father gentleman” line. What on earth could that mean? Your version makes ore sense than that! My theory is that Psy is having a little joke on us and has another word in mind for “father,” one that is usually bleeped. It’s surprising to me that I’ve come across no one making this connection.

  2. EATYOURKIMCHILIKEAMAYNNN!!!! Omg, you guys have got me off the real song and singing this version all day long…THE BEST PARODY I HAVE EVER SEEN!! I loved the diarrhea part lol…
    How did you guys make the symbol? It is awesome. And congrats on making your own music, I had no idea until I read this and you guys are really good at making music! 대박!!

  3. People go around my school singing “I-I-I-Im’ma I-I-I-Im’ma” expecting me to Finnish with “Madda Fadda Gentleman” but instead I’ve been singing “EayYourKchi like a Mayun!!!”

  4. Your song was better than Psy’s.

  5. This is better than the actual “Gentleman” xD;

  6. You guys are awesome. I loved the elevator scene because DUH! Thar guy totally could have re-pushed all the buttons. It’s pretty cool you used the same bridge.

  7. At first I didn’t if I should watch this thinking it’s a Psy review… but I thought I should watch it because it’s your work. Seems like nowadays artists create their own “Harlem shake” (not the original one … the popular one) for example “Gentlemen” “MichiGo” “Crayon” ( I wanted to rant about the song but there’s no use – . – )

    I could easily see your parody have millions of views and outnumber Psy’s “Gentlemen” so great work guise! ^^

    ♥♥ ♥ ♥

  8. Hey, first of all, your video is great and a lot more funnier than PSY’s !
    But I also wanted to know if Koreans think that “Gentlman” is too rude, as I’ve heard the video was censored in Korea ?
    (I hope I did not make too many grammar mistakes :) )

  9. You need to make a T-Shirt with the “EYK Like a Man” Symbol! Awesome!

  10. Yay! I finally got to watch it! It was awesome!

  11. I laughed so much with this video!! XD You’re so nasty! Love the song you made, love the dance moves, love to watch all the EYK staff dancing, love everything! Awesome!! :D

  12. I’m preety sure the intended catchphrase is mother father gentleman, not west side

  13. Wait….who won kwills signed cd? ? Where can I find the names! ???

  14. personally, i think PSY should’ve created a better song given that he was working on it for like 5 months and belongs to YG where people like GD and Kush could’ve helped him out.

    For example, the background melody never changes, it stays the same throughout the verses AND the chorus, which after a few listens makes the song sound too monotone. Also, the use of the abracadabra dance…. perhaps better if he hadn’t changed it? the single biggest reason that GS got so big was the horseriding dance. Everyone could bust it out and it was fun doing it. This new dance though…i dont see ppl doing it randomly on the streets and what not.

    Hopefully, PSY’s 3rd single will be better and the dance better too; coz so far Gentleman has been a hit, riding on the hughe waves of success that GS created for it. Next time there won’t be that i think. I really hope PSY does a superb 3rd single!

  15. that was it? wow. You guys didn’t even say what you thought about the Gentleman video. Fun? Will it be lasting? What parts did you like the most? When did you laugh the most?
    What about the fact that the 1st half is hilarious and the 2nd half is pretty boring?

    I really looked forward to this KMM because the one about Gangnam Style was great. This edition wasn’t really close. Perhaps a real KMM about this video next week is better suited?

  16. HAHAHAHA This is hilarious! I also think it’s a requirement to work with you guise to have some sort of pink/red dyed hair. :P I love Soo Zee’s hair (and Martina’s, duh). LOVE I SAY!

  17. http://PSYsGentleman.com

    MotherFatherGentleman.

  18. Does Ryan have a vlog, too?

  19. luv martina’s gain hair!!

  20. LMAO!! Brilliant :D

  21. i pretty much agree with everything you said about Gentlemen! I wish i could say it as intellegently to annoying people that are all like “whats up with this psy guy” ..ugh so frustrating..

  22. This is another AMAZING/ ENTERTAINING/HILARIOUS parody!! Hands up for the EYK crew!!

  23. OMG muthaf@c©µ nasty video! I love you guys so mutch, and I agree with Yanis Miranda, Martina you should do a nasty video about your kitty eyes, miau!!!

  24. OMG!! It was hilarious!!! It looked like you guys were embarrassed at some parts with so many people walking by, but you guys pulled through and it came out great!! I guess you guys enjoyed it a lot right?

  25. hahahhaha love it guys! you are the best (:
    and I didn’t know one could deselect the buttons in an elevator! you taught me something new!!

  26. Joan Vos MacDonald

    Love it. You guys always make my day.

  27. I bet the people passing by are saying “there go those weird foreigners”

  28. Nice cameo by Ryan, although i am starting to think he only owns one pair of shoes…. If you guys go to the board game cafe again you should film it again! And not play that balloon game!!

  29. Ryan is my EYK bias right now, lol.

  30. [email protected]

    its the synchronised swinging hips that make this video so funny! BRAVO!!

  31. loved the elevator scene!! martina’s kawi beats simons face xD…the hardwork and effort EYK crew put for this parody is the best!

  32. Lindsey Rieder

    your video is waaaay better than Psy’s!

  33. I loved you gain hair!!! You looked absolutely beautiful.

  34. Who are the winners of the K.will cds?

  35. chachamaru013

    I liked this version better than the original XD

  36. Martina you work those hips!

  37. This was hilarious! XD Loved it a lot! xDDD

  38. On the parody: This is brilliant! I can’t imagine the amount of time and energy this must have taken, considering you had such a quick turn around. I did miss your snarky commentary (I wanted to hear about the amazing symbolism in the video! ^_^), but I completely appreciated why you didn’t include it this time around. Thanks for the smiles.

    On the MV: The feedback on Psy’s new video and song has been pretty harsh, there are especially a lot of accusations that he is trying to hard and just made copy of Gangnam Style to ride on it’s success. And I don’t know if I am giving Psy too much credit, but I think this MV is the exact opposite. The Gentleman music video is so reminiscent of Gangnam Style, that it was clearly made that way on purpose. To a certain extent, it’s not a completely new song, but rather a sequel. I think it’s his way of saying, “I am grateful for the world’s appreciation of Gangnam Style, but it will be impossible to live up to the hype. I know there are people waiting for me to fall on my face, and I don’t care!” He doesn’t take himself seriously, and that’s what I like about him.

  39. First Eddie Murphy, now Dave Chappelle?! Next week, try and get a Katt Williams reference in. I know it can be done.

  40. The song seemed to be EXTREMLY catered to the International audience rather than the Korean one, this time, especially because of the song being like a night-club version of GS (Let’s also not forget all the English lyrics smh).

    Gentleman has a similar pattern to Gangnam Style, which made me disappointed the first time I tuned in to hear what Psy has brought us.

    I do agree with the MV being more focused on the Korean audience, though!!

  41. you are my 5 favorite human beings. Simon rocked this so hard core!!!! (and love soo zee’s pink wig :D )

  42. I agree with you about part of the new audience wanting him to fail. I was thrilled when I heard the new song because it was so nice to hear Korean music on US radio (plus the song is so great. The university where I teach even has it’s own parody on YouTube). But since this song came out, I’ve seen a lot of US-based pop culture news sites with headlines like “Psy Meltdown” and “The Slow Death of a Pop Culture Phenom.” I think US listeners might benefit from some Korean-style fan loyalty instead of just waiting for somebody to make a move so they can denounce them as failures and one-hit wonders, like you guys said. ANYWAY, love your video!

  43. Your parody just gets better and better every time I watch it.

  44. I am not sure though how many points out of five i should give you for your English because “I’ma eat your kimchi like a man” doesn’t make sense to me.

  45. Cyber_3

    As for PSY’s actual song/video, I did like them, I did laugh a lot, but then I was done. I think I could enjoy listening to and dancing to the song on my own but after a few views, I’m over the video. Also, like quite a few people said, the level of NSFW and Not Safe For Kids made me move on more quickly. Kids like saying “Mother Father Gentleman” because they know how it’s meant but it’s hard to get them in trouble for it – sigh.

    I honestly think that PSY was deliberately dialing back the broadness of the appeal here. I think that he was super happy about Gangnam Style’s success and how it brought Korea to people’s attention but I don’t think that it was really his gig. This song/video is very much the same style as “Right Now” but with with much higher production values. He’s still a success where it counts and he’s lowered expectations without flopping because he’ll likely just be ignored as a lot of stations can’t play the racy content. Back in the day when I went to Yuk Yuk’s in Toronto (they record the shows for tv and radio) and Mike Bullard was the MC, he always made a point of throwing in random excessive swearing “moments” in his comedy bits between the main acts. Why? He clearly stated that he did it so that he had the freedom to dress/say/do/talk about whatever he wanted because he knew it would never make it to air that way. See? PSY is smart – just a little too much but not enough that people get suspicious.

    Cyber_3 – it did occur to me that he might also not want to get in North Korea’s face with his success at the moment either……

  46. LOVED!!! You guys could do this more often :)

    Kisses from a brazilian nasty :-)

  47. Ahh wow guys, so brave. So NASTYYYY!! Funny too haha. Have you eaten your daily kimchi? XP And yeah, does Spudgy actually eat kimchi?!

    I have to say I much prefer your video to Psy’s, probably because his is plain mean, not even not-gentleman-like and too much like Gangnam Style (although, I don’t know what his other videos are like and whether this is his format). I do like the Abracadabra reference with Ga-in XD

  48. mihuru

    For a second there I thought Soo Zee with her pink/purple hair in the bar was actually Minzy. :’D

    This was such a fun parody! Really liked how serious “the gang” was behind Simon, who was doing his abracadabra hip thrusting moves like a man! Martina looks really pretty in the blond wig and Gain makeup and the elevator scene was purely genius haha! Watching the bloopers had me giggling so much too, seemed like you had such a great time doing the whole thing. :)

    I think I like Gentleman more than Gangnam Style, as a song at least. I’m a bit torn between the music videos since both of them are equally funny to me. I think I prefer the abracadabra dance to the horse dance tho, since it’s easier to mimic, already familiar to me and great exercise to your thighs/hips/whatever haha. :D Doing that for the whole song will surely give a great workout!

  50. Giggling so much. AWESOME job, guys, I hope Psy sees this XDD And everyone looks like they’re having so much fun!

  51. I looooooove your version and I also share the same opinion as you guys… PSY seems more… PSY on this song than he does on GS. Well you all know what I mean.

  52. I really enjoyed reading more of your opinions of Gentlemen here on your site :) Great song parody, epic locations and hilarious song/moments :D

  53. Martina, that wig actually looks really AMAZING on you. :) Just thought I”d throw that out there. :D

  54. The Mv I like, the song I do’t like ( Gentleman )…

    I honestly didn’t expect this type of KMM and it can be a positive and negative thing. On the positive side, you guys made an awsome EYK version ^-^ …On the other side, I felt the emptyness since it wasn’t the regular KMM…Maybe it’s because I am so used to the concept of KMM that for this one I felt alittle … empty?

    But it was fun to watch none-the-less and I like how you included the whole crew ^-^

  55. Who are the winners for the K.will cds?

  56. I liked it, but I would have more liked to see this done as like a special thing near the end, or and extra on the side, but instead, no offence, it felt like I got screwed out of a K-pop Music Monday. The idea was good though, and I loved how all the EYK crew was included and how you can tell how much fun it would have been. Ultimately, great job~! (^-^)

  57. SOO many things to say about this video. Firstly, i laughed so hard watching it (i swear my neighbours must think i’m crazy).
    The best part was the elevator. Nice try simon but martina got you ^^.
    Your dance is so sexy (or should i say Ohh So nasty ?). And soo zee your pink hair are awesome. I love it !
    But you’re right, the song’s beat kinda sucks. Even tough i love the lyrics ! Plus i agree with you for the gangnam style part of your comment. I did like this song but now i just can’t hear it without having the context affecting me. I heard it SO MANY TIMES
    Anyway great job, waiting for it was worth it. Thank you for this parody

    By the way, I was wondering, S&M, did you watch psy’s concert on youtube ?

  58. This world is a good place because of people like you. *tears*

  59. Wow, Soo Zee looked really pretty in this video O_o

  60. I loved your song and video. It totally made my day. Good job! Now i’ll watch the bloopers :D.

  61. Aww I forgot how tiny Meemers was in Eat your kimchi style XD

  62. The points simonandmartina made so much sense it hurts haha

  63. The new dance reminds me a lot of Brown Eyed Girls’ Abracadabra, was I the only one who thought that? Don’t get me wrong though, I still really like it :)

    • That would be because it is the dance used by BEG, they even had Ga-In from BEG to dance along side him. He basically got permission to pair the dance with his song.

  64. omg i was eatIing a Persimmon and spat out a bit while watching this haha this was absolutely gold! GOLD I TELL YA! I enjoyed reading the blog as always :) I had the similar thought that Psy’s Gentlemen video was perhaps more catered for his korean audience. I absolutely love Infinity Challenge but if I was someone who hadn’t watched it before I wouldn’t really get some of the jokes. Jaesuk’s part was hilarious and a few other little bits and pieces of the video but some parts were just a bit “ok?” like “i see what u were trying to do but didn’t seem natural” still catchy song though but not the kind u can easily scream/sing along with. But I like that for Psy it doesn’t have to be a worldwide hit. He’s that kind of guy, he’ll make great music, do random weird stuff in his videos not with the sole intention of being a worldwide hit wonder.
    thanks for the hard work guys!

  65. the last scene of the bloopers was brilliant! As expected, great video. I really liked the mountain of references to other videos you did ^^

  66. this is awesome!!! really appericate the afford in making this!!! i love the margherita scene, martina looks super beautiful in short blonde hair <3 eatyourkimchi frighting!!

  67. I loved your video, always takes a lot of nerve to just go out there and act a fool while tons of people can see you. But I really liked it, everyone did a great job.

    As for Psy’s song: I am in the same boat as you guys. I LOVED Gangnam Style but first I played it too much myself and second when I got sick of it the world was still in the mode of playing it everywhere. So after a while I got really really sick of it. That being said I do not think it will be as huge as Gangnam Style. I really like the song and video but with Gangnam Style I immediately felt like it would be huge (not as huge HUGE as it turned out to be, but I felt like it was going to be the song to introduce kpop to a much bigger world). While this will get a ton of views because it is the song after Gangnam Style I don’t think it will explode as much or even bigger than Gangnam Style.

    I am just glad Psy did his own thing instead of trying to go for Gangnam Style pt. 2 (although people might see the quirky video and returning people in the video as him doing it).

  68. THIS WAS AWESOME!!!!

  69. You did it again! I was waiting for this and I almost cried tears of joy when I saw this. :D This is my jam, “YOU SO FREAKING NASTYYY”

  70. vaxanne

    Gentlemen didn’t strike a cord and with the over kill of Gangnam Style, I cringe at the sound of it now. His older song, Right Now, would’ve potentially hit another jackpot it is launched now and not then.

  71. just heard that PSY paid for that dance. I mean WTF? that dance did not originate with BEG, its been around for years.

  72. omfg the bar was playing kiss me by six pence none the richer!!! waaaahhhhh!!!

  73. my 10yo wants this in mp3 format. help a lady out? i know ic an just dl the video and rip it, but honestly i’d rather just have a download link…. (i seriously watch most of your videos twice, once for me, and if it’s kid safe i watch them again with my girls.)

  74. You look so pretty in this litle black dress Martina! :D Awesome video guys :) And nice to see whole kimchi familly together – only meemers went missing…

  75. THIS IS LITERALLY THE BEST THING EVER

  76. I’m just hoping that you won’t get diarrhea after eating sooo much kimchi in a vigorous way xDDD

  77. HAHAHAHAH OMG that was brilliant. As soon as the song came out i was like “Its so going to b eatyourkimchi-fied” thank you for this guys, loved it.

  78. ok…so I made the mistake of watching this in my uni library (which is really full of people right now) and am sure that the people behind me are giving me weird looks right now. Oh and I had to try so hard not to laugh out loud right now! this was great eatyourkimchi crew :) thanks for making my day p.s am i the only one who thinks this was better than the original, not that the original music video wasn’t good either :)

  79. I’m not feeling it with PSY’s music video. Yours, however, rocks.

  80. Can you guys please release a ringtone of your version of Junsu’s Tarantallegra

  81. I’m totally learning EYK’s “Like a man” version:

    Not because I really enjoyed watching the EYK crew + Ryan having a lot of fun,

    Not because I appreciate your pain eating all that sour kimchi

    Not because the song it’s so ‘lame as all hell’ that it’s actually good…

    just because if you ever come back to Mexico, we can sing it together :D

  82. seriously, soozee nuna looks pretty in that pink wig.. kkkkk

  83. it is not like you can say mother fucking gentleman in korea…LOL

  84. I immediately noticed how much time you put into it. As a musician, I can say that the parody of the song wasn’t bad at all! Lyrics are really hard especially when you’re fitting them into a certain rhythm. When you interviewed MFBTY, he mentioned really focusing on the rhythm of the Korean language. It’s not an easy thing and is what makes good rapper GOOD. Anyway, so funny. OH, and I totes noticed the bridges were the same. Propz Soo Zee. :D

  85. I just realized…”All I wanna be…Is Sexy, Free, and Single. Let’s go Bingo!” hahaha…nice =) – Nasty E.L.F.

  86. hehe this was awesome, you all have worked hard =)

  87. Guys, you can’t even imagine how much I laughed my butt off watching. I salute to all the people in the EYK parody for their part in it, I just loved it, and coming back home from all the studies I had to do, it really made my day. :) I love you guys, thank you so much for making these things. I bet everyone else is happy too

  88. daebak!! simon and martina… PSY would be so proud of you…. :)

  89. hey,,, i think you guys are cool!!! it was awesome~ ^_^ go go go EYK crew! ;) love it!!!!!!!! hee

  90. Now I understand why you guys were filming so long yesterday!

  91. Major props to Ryan for going all out on this! I mean, props to everyone, but Ryan’s not part of the EYK crew so extra props to him for being an awesome sport. You all did awesome and the video’s really funny! <3 EATYOURKIMCHI LIKE A MAN!

  92. Dang! No violent traffic cone hip thrusting! Or street sign pole dancing!

  93. i’m sure they wont eat kimchi for a week or so now

  94. wryy, simon, WRYYYYYYYYYY

  95. PSY said that he was under a lot of pressure to live up to Gangnam style, and that he tried to pick lyrics that the global audience would not find too difficult to sing along.

  96. Great blog post about Gentleman vs. Gangnam Style and Psy’s role in Korea and in context of how non kpop people view him. I think you guys hit the mark. He really is just doing what he’s always been doing and I’m glad that he’s not changing. Of course when ppl mention him now here (I live in the US) I’ll be slightly annoyed at their ignorant comments about Mr. Psy, but eh. watchu gon do.

    Lastly, good parody. I loved SooZee and Ryan’s cameo :)

  97. Good parody and a nice song.

    Loved the Elevator scene.

    Just one thing missing though…the swaying ponytails on the abracadabra dance. In the original they were mesmerizing.

  98. incredibly fun, great to see more of the crew! Next video you guys gotta introduce the “AYYY GURL” window roll down dance

  99. I’m a bit sad that GI’s ‘Beatles’ did not get reviewed. I mean it’s Psy he would be first on the charts no matter what. But now we might never have a reviewed GI video…..o n o (Still Psy’s video is pretty flippin awesome!)

  100. this is awesome!! So much better than the original gentleman actually XD I can’t stop laughing !! Martian you look great with the GAIN style makeup!!

  101. I’m sorry, this has nothing to do with the video, but I read the word Marathon and started to cry. I really hope that we can all hope and/or pray for those in Boston.

  102. I LOVE THIS. Besides being in awe of the many ways kimchi can be incorporated into one’s life, I was seriously distracted by the awesome that is Soo Zee in wigs. Brilliant! And Martina in the elevator–even more brilliant! (I do that trick all the time) Should we expect a makeup tut of your awesome Ga In look soon?

    Did Spudgy really eat his kimchi?

    As for the song itself, not gonna lie, I was pretty meh about it when I first heard just the audio. It sounded kinda monotonous, with no dramatic ramp up compared to “Gangnam Style.” I will admit that it had a hook. But I wanted to see the video first before I wrote it off. And the video is BRILLIANT. WOW. I enjoy it a whole lot. And I was so tickled by the fact that I could understand majority of the K-entertainment allusions!

    As for Psy’s intentions, I haven’t read any interviews he’s done for this (if he *has* done any) but I agree with your thoughts of the massive viral phenomenon that was “Gangnam Style.” I think it’s a disservice to Psy to try and duplicate that, when the beauty of the whole thing is: it was awesome just as it is. To take it as a once-in-a-lifetime event of sorts. That being said, I kinda DO think he tried for a second “Gangnam Style”–there’s another sexy girl, an addictive dance step, a flash mob (of sorts), even a cameo of the hip-thrusting dude in the window/glass during the restaurant scene. If I think about it that way, I feel “Gentleman” way missed the mark. I wonder why he didn’t just do something completely different.

    BUT: I recognize the awesome of “Gentleman” in all the K-entertainment inclusions. I agree with your thoughts that with this song he wants more awareness of Kpop. And d@mn if I kept replaying this freaking video over and over again. I really enjoy it! I love that the lyrics are definitely raunchier (as is the whole imagery, especially Ga In eating that…sausage-like thingy) and I even love his avatar on the song’s cover. If I take it as it is, with no knowledge of “Gangnam Style,” I think it’s a brilliant song! (and yeah, it tackles a pet peeve of mine–guys who call themselves gentlemen but behave to the contrary)

  103. Another classic! I would love to have seen the looks of the people driving by on the bridge…. 4 young non-koreans (plus Soozee) doing pelvic thrust at the cars with chopsticks and kimchi. I can only imagine what they were thinking.

    Was it A) It must be a North American thing, B) Who let them in the country or C) “Ewww they soooo NASTY!”

    Next time you guys do a dance scene in public, you should have set a camera facing the public for reaction shots. LOL

  104. Great parody! I laughed a lot. Your abracadabra dance on the bridge actually looked really good. How cool that you could find the SAME bridge!

  105. Ohhhhh myyyyy goodnesssss! I think I almost died laughing!!! LoVeD iT !!! ….sooo much kimchi used! i would think Simon would get a stomach ache from eating all that….
    It was really funny ^^ Great job EYK Crew!!
    Made my day :D
    THANKS GUISE!

  106. Incredible job, EYK crew! As usual, you guys have totally justified my regard for you as the only Korean culture website I need to frequent.

  107. This is awesome! Great work y’all. Thank you for this. Best Parody. ^.^

  108. Perfect time to be one of the first parodies since the MV just came out a few days ago! I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets millions and millions of views cause this is hilarious :)

  109. Is it me or Sungri is in the video????????????

  110. That was really, really hilarious. :D I feel like I should say something intelligent, but I’m too busy laughing to do so.

  111. ” What the hell are those foreigners doing??” liked that scene in the bloopers. Martina…ROCKING that sequined dress! SooZee looks adorable in pink hair. How much drinking did Ryan do before the play park dance scene? Intern Leigh deserves MORE ice cream! And Simon? Why to take one for the team dude…..

  112. Guys!!!! congratulatios!!!! your video was excelent!!!! oh boy you make me the week xD VIVA EYK crew!!!!!

  113. I swear. I think this is the funniest music monday xD thumbs up guys xD

  114. Cyber_3

    Super totally awesome! Second only to the elevator punching scene was the breakout dance moment at the end of the bloopers, it’s too bad it wasn’t in the main video. It especially made me laugh ’cause it made me think of the time on Star King when Martina broke out into her own dance instead of the Super Junior one – super cool in both instances, even if it wasn’t totally planned – LOL!

  115. Brilliant parody, genuinely had me cracking up throughout XD

    Now onto serious stuff – I really? didn’t enjoy Gentleman? I found the song kind of meh compared to GS, like you said it didn’t have that ~anthemic~ feel that GS did (and believe me, I know the power of people yelling that *cowers away from GS line at the last con I went to*) nor did I find it particularly catchy? Also for me it sort of? copied GS but in a bad way? Take the chorus, that whole *lots of noises/cuts in the video/building up tension* “mother father gentleman” just reminded me so much of the bridge in GS that it was like, to me, he’d taken the anthemic sound of GS and made it worse :/ (Just to clarify, if GS didn’t exist I’d probably have a similar reaction that I did to GS – like at first till it becomes too overplayed for me – but GS *does* exist and people *will* compare the two, so I don’t think you can seperate them – not least because of the similarity between the two).

    And as for the video…bluh. I just found it really cringy (more than I find using that word cringy) and awkward to watch, and nowhere near as funny as it aimed to be (compared to, say, Love Blossom, which actually made me laugh). And I know that he paid to use the Abracadabra dance but I don’t think it’ll have the intended effect – unless people know it comes from a different video, I think they’ll associate it with Gentleman and then I’ll be cringing in the corner because Abracadabra is one of my favourite songs/videos/dances and people will be like ~~~ooh new easy to do dance that we can terrify people with in convention centres~~~ and I’ll be like “IT’S NOT NEW” (these are things that matter to me, sorry)

  116. Simon used the moustache straws I sent them in the video!!! HELLS YEAH!!!!

  117. This completely made my day! Nay! My life!

  118. This was hilarious. Loved it even more than the original because it’s with the EYK crew. Thank you guys so much for all the hard work it took to record each scene and make the phat beat (yo) under the lyrics. You guys never cease to impress!! :D

    Also, thanks for focusing on even the small details, like the Psy-Simon image and the subtitles. It was really funny watching your version of the song with subtitles–definitely laughed out loud at those (“SHOYUKEN!”)

  119. Great parody guys. It looked like fun to film!

  120. kaward

    this was aswome guys it looked like so much fun to shot to i wonder what people passing by though of you lol all dressed up and dancing to no music on the bridge

  121. I loved the elevator scene y’all^^

  122. Martina, your Ga-in makeup looked so good! I thoroughly enjoyed the video and seeing the EYK crew! Awesome work guises! ^_^

  123. I liked this video just as much as the original :) TBH I don’t like Gentleman that much, Gangnam Style was so much better. It made me laugh out loud, the most Gentleman makes me do is a soft chuckle. The song has grown on me though. Great job guys!!

  124. Now. Can’t wait to see what your going to do for T-araN4′s song and MV.watch the teaser guise. I’ll send it to you guise

  125. 싸이보다 더 웃겨요 ㅋㅋ

  126. In the bloopers EYK Harlem.Shake Like a man and women!

  127. EatYourKimchi Like a woMAN!!

  128. Im guna get soooo many negatives on this but I was REALLY hoping for an actual review today. I personally think Gentlemen is nowhere near as catchy as Gangnam Style. And I really wanted to hear your guys’ take on it =( Also was hoping Jay Park would have gotten a review from you guys considering he hasnt gotten one in quite a while. Besides that, great parody!

    • I was hoping for a review too, but I was fine with just having their synopsis in the text this time.

    • I was thinking about how could we ask them to give their opinions on it because it wasn’t in the top 3, and I really didn’t want to waste a Music Monday with it, but I think Simon and Martina created a tastefully, well done solution. I didn’t even think about them parodying it and then creating a Music Monday-esque post on their blog. I personally didn’t like PSY’s song because I couldn’t show it to people with the line “Mother father gentleman” in it. I was hoping other people would think what I was thinking about what it really sounded like. I’m glad they did. I also think that the scenes with the women were close to bullying and demeaning; however, I understood the concept of the song was about someone who was really the opposite of a gentleman. I have liked songs in the past that delt with these two ideas better: the words disguising what they really mean, and the treatment of women. But, it was meant to be funny. So, although the song didn’t rub me the right way, wow that sounded really dirty, I was able to remind myself of its purpose and get on with my day. I appreciate what he is trying to do for his fellow artists, instead of just taking all of the attention for himself.

  129. On the topic of PSY aiming for the korean audience, I agree that he’s keeping those fans who were his fans earlier at heart but also during his “Happening” concert on April 13, PSY told the audience “I plan on remaking not only the dances in South Korea but also the songs.”

    He had also stated, “There aren’t that many music industries that have so many ‘dance points’ like our country. My horse dance was just one dance with a ‘point’ and I will continue to interpret the different ‘dance points’ in K-Pop and introduce them overseas. I wish that the original owners of those dances will get the spotlight overseas. I would also like to interpret our songs and show it to the world” (Source: Soompi.com). So it seems like he’s trying to help other kpop artists spread their name internationally too :D

  130. YukiRed

    I’m not sure what “skunking in the park” means, but the guy doing the dance that Ryan parodied seems to me like a grown up version of little PSY

  131. This made my day xDDDD
    I’ll now sing ‘EAT YOUR KIMCHI LIKE A MAN’ xDD

  132. =( I never really know whether to read these posts in Martina’s voice or Simon’s voice… Give me a hint, you two…

  133. Ha, tres funny. Its kindda funny seeing different random people in videos, plus love that we have a MM shot outside :D

  134. Lol I don’t why wed make fun of it, lol its appreciated after my horrible day (tooth nerve is killing me)

  135. Oh my god I laughed so hard at the elevator scene!!

  136. I love you guys so much.. i don’t even have words! oh wait wait… i do “Ohhhh you so NASTY” and that is all <3

  137. It makes me sad that you didn’t title the video “KPMM” or even “parody” or something like that… =(

  138. oh god…so much kimchi~~

  139. This. Was. Just. Awesome! xD And you guys were so synchronized. Great KMM!

  140. mega awesome! ^^ appreciate all the effort because I laughed so hard omfg

  141. OMG! I SOOOOO LOVE THIS. YOU GUYS DID A WONDERFUL JOB. I’M GOING TO TWEET THIS PSY EVERYDAY AT LEAST EVERY HOUR THAT I’M ON THE COMPUTER. KYAAAAH!

  142. You guys are geniuses! Great Parody! I recognized the bridge in your vid immediately that’s awesome that you were able to film there even though it was a hassle to get home from. I will always love Martina as Jae Seok!!

    I feel like Gentlemen is a song that you can easily just sit back and nod with the beat while Gangnam Style had more of a get up and party beat to it. I can’t really choose which I like more either. All I know is that this new song is very very refreshing.

  143. As much as I would of loved a normal KMM this was just as awesome! Thank you so much for working so hard on this to present to us Nasties!

  144. I was secretly hoping for a WET PSY-MON moment
    featuring Simon in the shower with a kimchi loofah

  145. loll that was great. i was stressing about the tests i’m studying for. this was a great stress reliever. Now i need to go back to being a mother father studying machine!

  146. It actually seemed to me like they made this video to target a more western audience, adding a lot more sexuality and racy-ness to the video. Honestly I was really disappointed with the video as I thought all that was stupid and ONLY added to be appealing to a western audience. As well, I kind of foresee this MV glorifying acting like a duechebag (even though he treats women like shit he still gets them all over him). I like the song, like the dance and I like Psy, but I thought this video was low-brow and obnoxious, and not in an amusing way. Perhaps I took it too seriously, but that’s just my initial reaction!
    That being said, LOVE the EYK version :)

    • I also felt that the video’s humor was lowbrow and obnoxious. If he was trying to replicate GS’s sense of irony and social commentary, he missed the mark in my opinion. There was no turnaround or comeuppance by the end of the video to show that gentlemen shouldn’t actually behave like that. Instead, it seemed to promote acceptance of such behavior. Yes, it’s just a kpop video, so we could be taking it too seriously, but still, this is a kpop video that will be seen by millions of people all over the world. Unlike Gangnam Style, Gentleman left a bad taste in my mouth.

      There’s an interesting article about it by Seoulbeats that you’d probably enjoy reading. http://seoulbeats.com/2013/04/roundtable-the-gentleman-edition/

      • Thanks I’ll check it out! Yes I totally agree, I got hopeful when Ga-In pulled the chair out from under Psy as sort of a “taste of your own medicine” but then it totally stopped there and so I was disappointed. Oh well!

  147. HAHAHAH I love the part at the end of the bloopers where Ryan just starts fake eating the kimchi.. also Martina LOOKIN HAWT!!

  148. AWWW I thought you guys would do GI beatles!

  149. Love the translation “Awesome Beat” and “breakdown with the fat wicked beat son”…indeed, keep bringing those fast hard and wicked beats…oooooo you so nasty!!!

  150. So this is why I was left wonder wth yesterdays KMM was… Well done guise! Now go home, you need sleep xD.

    With PSY’s MV, I’m sure that most of us who were into Kpop/K-culture (esp. variety shows like Running Man or Infinity Challenge) pre-PSY would know some of the people (Ga-in, Jae-suk/Grasshopper, Hybrid Haha, Park Myungsoo) which is great, and I also liked how PSY paid homage to BEG’s ‘Abracadabra’ dance, even buying the rights to it! It’s totally understandable that he wanted to focus primarily on his Korean fanbase, and like he said in his concert on Saturday, he’s been around for 13 years in Korea, but only 1 worldwide.

    Anyways, Papa YG needs to see this and get his people to contact you guys for a YG family interview!

  151. Isabel Ruby

    cool i was wondering if the Abracadabra dance was on purpose or not…..

  152. No matter what is going on in my life I can always count on the EYK crew to give me a smile. This song needs to go on my ipod to give me a laugh no matter where I am x3

  153. this is so awesome! This is the kind of MM that I used to love! Not so much talking but making more fun about the song and making us laugh =D

  154. Epicly epic epicosity epicified by epicous epicness and on a scale of epic to epic that was EPIC.
    …After spelling epic that many times the word “epic” begins to look weird, as though i didn’t spell it right. Anyhoodledoodlepoodle: EPIC!

  155. WTF was that??? LMAO ROFL *dead*
    You guise’re HILARIOUS as ever!!! :P

  156. OMG. That was the most hilarious music video ever!!!! I watched it so many time and still found something new to laugh at.

    It must have been really difficult to keep a straight face without laughing your heads off. Now wonder it took you forever to record, thank you for that. Now I need to buy kimchi tomorrow!!!

    Please post the lyrics for the video, it would be awesome if you could make an album of your music and release it I would definitely buy it.

  157. So I’m guessing the English of the song is… A SHUT YOUR FACE OUT OF FIVE….right guies?

  158. First of all that was hilarious xD And that you guys managed to shoot at the same bridge was (wow!) fanstastic (baby)! I wasn’t too fond of the song at first but the MV was funny and it’s growing on me. Also I watched Psy’s concert on youtube and I realized I recognized so many of the songs and had no idea they were written by Psy. I liked Psy’s music for quite a while without actually knowing it @_@!!

  159. Ray

    Soo Zee Soo Zee Soo Zee Soo Zee yeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaah! Love it guys!

  160. West Side represent! Yeah, here from Los Angeles, the pure west side. Okay, now for serious business, I did like your version of the song “Gentlemen”, also it would be fun if you guys would do parody of hit songs by other artist, that would be cool. Plus, Martina, did it hurt to have the kimchi bag between your breast? I hope I don’t sound creepy!

  161. Honestly, I’ve been lying to myself this entire time.

    Sorry Onew, but Simon is really my true Ultimate Bias.

  162. I like your parody better then the original. Seriously, you guys rock!

  163. I like the video :) It’s different to what you usually do, features the EYK staff and it’s fun. It’s a pity you guys had such difficulty making it. But your dancing was great.

    I also appreciated the long blog post very much – it’s nice to hear you guys explain a few aspects of it and to hear your impression of how you think a global audience might react to it.

    BTW, what do you guys think of the fact that Ga In had a role to play in it, and the use of the Abracadabra dance?

  164. …Not gonna lie, previous comments from other Nasties had me looking forward to Simon being wet…*cough*…sorta dissapointed…*sniff*….

    • Believe me, we WANTED to do more with this. Slathered in Kimchi all over my man-body? Yes sir! Problem is, we didn’t know making the song would be so difficult, and we just went wayyyy over production time. Next Psy song that comes out, though, I’m sure we’ll know our way around Music making a bit more, and won’t have to cut anything out!

  165. I honestly think that was better than the actual song. And bravo for going all the way out to ______ bridge (because someone couldn’t remember the name) love your guys’ stuff. Eat Yoir Kimchi HWIGHTING!!!! 사랑해

  166. This is even funnier than the original

  167. Awesome video EYK Crew!!!
    Also who won the k.will album from last week??? I’m curious!

  168. LOOL Martina just pushes the buttons agains and punches him xD

  169. I was like where is KMM. This is not KMM. Although you used a different approach it’s still very enjoyable. Besides it probably doesn’t really need a commentary…the music video speaks for its self.

  170. Oh god the bloopers are hilarious!!!! The dancing at the end! Martina trying to eat sexy! I was wondering what people walking by would be thinking! XD

  171. Can I just say that I love the EYK crew? XD

  172. Martina you look so SEXY-UH! with that Ga-in eyecat!

  173. do btob second confession pretty please guys~

  174. Who won the K.will cds?? Nice video btw its was amazing

  175. You all are so absolutely amazing. Good job! I love it.

  176. I loved all of you guys in it! Leigh keeping a straight face must have been hard haha. I guess Ryan is officially part of the EYK crew now huh? More silly wanks/fap faps/music mondays with the crew yeeeeeesh. And for the English 5 out of 5!

  177. Awesome! You guys did a really good job on this!!! Two thumbs UP!

  178. KATHyphenTUN

    I laughed soooo hard at the elevator!! I wish you could do that with elevators here!!!!

  179. I hope it goes viral :D :D

  180. Quite hilarious ^^ And Martina, you look really great with that short hair! ^-^

  181. Hey guise! I’m back after almost 3 weeks of EYK deprivation (with the horrible withdrawal symptoms that you can imagine), and I just caught up with almost everything I missed, so I’ll just comment about everything right now (ahem):

    K-crunch Indie Playlist: Oh nooo, not these video-skipping playlists again! I want to watch my playlists in the right order!

    KPop Music Mondays – Man In love: Oh nooo, not these video-skipping… oh no, wait, I restarted the video 3 times because I thought it was the bloopers, but it was just Meemers messing with Simon in the actual KMM. MEEMERS, YOU FURRY TROLL!
    Awesome Music Mondays, by the way. I don’t mind how long it is, as long as you have fun!

    TLDR – Korea VS Japan: Korea, why you so NOT eco-friendly? I noticed a lot of greenwashing in Korean ads, but it seems like actually people don’t care.

    WANK – Board Game Café: I also had much more fun that with the princess café edition. Stop pouting, Martina. You’re still the prettiest princess EVAR.

    KPop Charts Update: No more video skipping. Yeay!

    KPop Music Mondays – Milkshake: Uuuuuuuuh, that’s so aweful! ^^ I don’t think a lot of people got fooled, but it was good trolling. The best of the best trolling remains weloveyg.com, though. That was a GOOOOOOOOOOOOLDen april’s fools!

    KPop Music Mondays – Rose: Ok, I’m gonna try and add my grain of salt (as we say in French) without adding salt on the wound (as we say in English): it seems like you guise have yet to find the perfect balance between “we luuuv you guise, we wouldn’t be there without you!” and “It’s OUR blog, we do what we want, you whiny sissy fangirls!” Yes, you followed the rules, yes, you picked your favourite out of the top 3, yes, you had at the right to do that, yes, you made a very enjoyable KMM out of it… But it was just undelicate. Just like middle fingers aren’t forbidden by the law, but are still not very nice (and from what I read, it seems like a lot of voters took your choice as a middle finger). But it’s alright, it’s over now, people will forget about it until the “best potential KMM” vote and will still enjoy your videos. And you’ll have learnt from it. Seriously, how boring is a job in which you don’t learn?

    TLDR – Fan death: I want a movie about a serial killer fan! It will be the blockbuster of the summer! Fan Blades *jaws music*

    FAPFAP – Hoddeok: Now that’s what I want as a perk for the next fundraiser!

    KPop Music Mondays – Love Blossom: I was expecting a showdown against HyunA (the naaaasty ice cream edition) but awesome KMM nonetheless. You guise obviously had as much fun as us analysing every detail.

    TLDR – teenage pregnancy: World biggest porn consumers + no sex education = a massive mess in teenagers’ brains, if you ask me. MAKE LOVE, NOT PORN!

    KPop Charts Update – GO SUNNY HILL! I WANNA LEARN ABOUT LIFE AND STUFF! But Psy’s coming… Oh, well… I guess one can live with that…

    Korean Indie Playlist: PLAAAYLIST MOOODE! is back! I luv PLAAAYLIST MOOODE! Except when it skips videos.

    Gentleman Parody: I found the original plain vulgar, but your version is beyond awwwesome! And it involves more kimchi eating than in the full history of Eat Your Kimchi. And Martina is soooooooooooooo freaking sexy! And Simon WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON THE ROAD? DID YOU FORGET YOU’RE IN KOREA AND CARS WANT TO KILL YOU?

    Now you’re off to sleep guise, and me too, so good night!

  182. Haha, fantastic as always. I wasn’t a huge fan of the song, but the video was hilarious, and I loved Ga In’s inclusion and the reference to Abracadabra. I don’t think I’ve been a K-pop fan that long (since Tell Me), but knowing the references really helps with the enjoyment of the video. My boyfriend didn’t understand it until I sent him other videos, then he got why I liked it more (still not his cup of tea, though he loved the video). I also saw a lot of comments on the Brown Eyed Girls videos saying that Psy brought them there, so I’m really happy with how much Psy is trying to gain some exposure for other groups :)

    I thought a bit of it was too “Gangnam’d up”, like a couple dozen people dancing all at once for some pan-shots. Overall though, well done.

    Your guy’s’s (huh?) version was so funny, and SooSee looks so cute in her pink wig! Butt wiggle on my friends ;)

  183. I really like Gentleman, I am sure a lot of people will be hating on it, but I really like the song and especially the Synth beat throughout the song. I think whatever Psy did it would have been criticised as not being Gangnam Style. As for the parody, what can say, It is brilliant I have only stopped laughing after about 5 minutes. Hopefully all your hard work will be rewarded with lots of people watching this video. I first found you as a related video to Gangnam style and I was hooked on EYK.

  184. best EVAH!!!!! LIKE A MAN!!!!

  185. Haha I loved it! It was hilarious! You guys did a great job! Even with all the difficulties you went through. XD

  186. Did you guys watch the HAPPENING concert via Youtube? Psy was amazing!

  187. :D :D :D you are just AWESOME !!! I love you so much ~ This was one good ~ KMM !!!
    Greetings from Bulgaria!!

  188. PunkyPrincess92

    hahaha ‘eat your kimchi like a man’!!
    i loved PSY’s video but the song i didn’t really like it that much, some parts were good but i dunno it personally sounded ‘loud’ not sure how to explain it….and there just seemed like there was a lot of noise…..
    i’m not comparing it to GS or anything! whenever i listen to new songs i listen to ‘em with an open mind (or whatever!)
    and also watching some parts of the mv was kinda awkward and even parts of the song…..
    but still it was an awesome video!!!

    haha your friends Ryan(?) was dying being HaHa’s character!!
    ah~ Tony Montana!!!! i was JUST thinking of what Al Pacion’s name was in Scarface cos my sister thought his name was Al Pacino in the actual movie and not in real life!!

  189. Oh. My. Goodness. The WIN is EPIC with this one!!!

  190. Wow, that’s a surprising MM this time! And why not, since the Gentleman is the one of a kind track. Your reendition was funny, jerky and a little uncomfortable for me in the same spots the actual MV is :P (Pretty dress, Martina, by the way! and the bar looks really nice…) – in other words, I love it! :D

    I noticed that the spot looks strangely familiar and OMG it was the same one! That raises the bar of coolness for the upcoming parodies, haha :) Thank you guys!

    I discussed the song with my friends yesterday a lot – and I think that we agree that whatever PSY would do, lots of people would be unsatisfied. What do they want? Something new? Something already known? Some people will complain, but personally I hope it will become the next hit. Although at the beginning I thought it’s strange not to have an original dance, I now understand the aim of it. It seems like a really cool and original idea, to serve as a kind of a tunnel between worlds with ‘smuggling’ outside the Abracadabra dance. I wonder what’s going to be next!

    Sorry for my English (Polska pozdrawia!) and have a good rest after those 22 hours ;)

  191. aweeesome-ness.
    did you guys get a lot of weird stares? hahah. look at that woman behind martina when she pulled out the kimchi from underneath hahahahaha.

    great job guyyys!!!!

  192. sunnyhill

    Good job!
    SooZee is sooo pretty :)

  193. Dare I say it…I think I like your song better than “Gentleman” ^^ It was awesome!!! Way to go EYK Crew. You so NASTY!!!

    A note about PSY’s intention – he’s been saying things like he wanted to make sure to include the BEG “Abracadabra” dance to make the international audience more aware of K-pop in general. He even paid the copyright fee/license etc. for it. I can totally respect that, even if “Gentleman” is not my favourite PSY song. Granted, I liked PSY pre-”Gangnam Style” and now I cringe whenever I hear it, but mad props to PSY for bringing a spotlight to my beloved K-pop. (http://www.soompi.com/2013/04/15/why-did-psy-purchase-the-rights-for-the-abracadabra-dance/)

    And now he needs to come and be interviewed in the EYK studio.

    p.s. I totally agree with you that this MV seems super Korean-audience oriented. There were several times I thought: Man, I am not sure that people not super into Korean culture/music/drama/variety are going to get this part really well or think it’s super funny.

    • I totally agree. It isn’t my favorite song, but I think it’s because so many people have jumped on the ‘Psy-bandwagon’ in these past months. Even though he did release it worldwide, he mainly made this for his fans that have been there before GS(not saying he doesn’t appreciate newer fans, but many of the newer fans don’t know anything about K-pop besides Psy).
      Throughout his interviews, especially with Ryan Seacrest(who was one of the only ones who bothered to look into others things besides his new song), he’s always mentioned how he’s just happy to represent S. Korea and always said something about him not being the only K-pop artist out there. He could have just used this new found fame to promote himself, but he’s always promoted others as well. This song won’t go well with non K-pop fans because they obviously wouldn’t get why Ga In is in the video nor the dance or anything that goes on in it.

  194. It looks like you can rhyme anything by adding “-uh”.
    That makes you sound like snoop dog-uh.
    You so nast-izzle probably wouldn’t work that well-uh.
    Also I’ve gotta say pronouncing Spudg-izzle is kinda hard-uh.
    So, good choice-uh.
    :D

  195. And my day has been officially made.

  196. I love it! I knew you would be doing something for Gentleman but that was really awesome. I wish you would do more like that, although I really like your usual music mondays.

  197. This is amazing, you guys are so awesome! Thanks for everyones effort, it was a great video and Im glad you guy’s made it!

  198. Hyuna was replaced by Ga In. Who had normal looking eyebrows.

  199. It was fun to watch and i so enjoyed every moment of the video. My favorite was your guises elevator scene. Ha Ha. That was the best. Love the dediction in finding the same spot on the bridge even though you had to walk an hour to the subway. It has all the more meaning to it.

  200. not to be a poopface but i was really hoping GI-Beatles would get reviewed seeing as Psy could have hanged on to the top spot till next week while GI is now done to the fouth spot….

    that being said l died D-I-E-D of laughter when i watched the video!! i would like to see the reaction of the people nearby watching u guys film this….ahahahaha. I agree in that i dont think Psy was trying to capture the world audience….i think he does want to reward those who have supported him from the get-go and he is trying to rep Korea to the world which is nice!

    I do think the song is not great just because to me it sounds like Gangnam Style 2.0 but i still love it none the less. the chorus and beat n video are all stuck in my head and i have been watching it numerous times on YT.

    • let’s get the next GI song reviewed, and hopefully it will be less auto-tuned.

      LOL, I can only imagine the reactions of the spectators to the EYK filming xD I wonder how many recognised that they were parodying PSY…

  201. You guys did a great job! I scared my cat because I laughed so loud >_< Major kudos to you guys for having the guts to go out and do all that in public.

  202. That song was gold, especially since I was expecting a music monday. That 22.5 hours without sleep is very much appreciated (not as in I didn’t want you guise to sleep)…but u know what I mean xD. Anyways I like this unusual musical monday, you guise should do it randomly more often :)

  203. gotta say – Martina…. LOVING THE HIP ACTION!

  204. I just laughed out loud. Thank you for making my mother father day better. You guys rock.

  205. Really creative and awesome!!! Hope you guys get many views!!!

  206. I was waiting for this SOOOO BAAAAD!! Thanks Guys!! You’re the best!

  207. “skunking”? I always thought it was called “skanking”…. it’s how you dance to ska… right?

  208. This was so great! You guys always make my day ~ now ill be eating kimchi like a man XD

  209. LOVE IT! So funny! And look! Simon can move his hips!

  210. poodle

    This is SO fantastic guys! Thanks for working so hard to entertain us (though it looks like you had a lot of fun yourselves!)

  211. i can’t even…. DAMN GIRL! YOU SO FREAKIN NASTAYYYY

  212. Haha, your Eat Your Kimchi team is so adorable, especially the outfits. Your hard work was appreciated, guise. Thanks for giving me some laughs.

  213. AYYYY Girl- can I buy you a kimchi margherita!!!!

  214. Hahahahahah OMG THIS IS HILARIOUS! I LOVE IT!!! And Martina is almost sexier than Ga-In! Whoouuhohohohoooh rivals! :D

  215. I’ve been waiting all day for this to go up! Thanks :D Made my evening. Love it.

  216. That, was SO beautiful. You guys made me cry a little after I watched it x3.
    So funny, you guys are amazing.

  217. Mad props for being so bold and fun in public while filming this knowing that people would be like “what the flip is going on with those oegug-in?” But my favorite part is in the blooper reel as Simon is making his ‘do you want sexy time’ faces at Martina in the lounge and you can hear the “Kiss Me” soundtrack song from She’s All That. Appropriate?!?! All the way, my friend!

  218. There’s a West Side in Syracuse NY too. :)

  219. I dont like Gentelman. :(

    • I agree. I liked Psy even before the Gangnam craze, but he missed the mark on this one in my opinion. I think he was going for an ironic prankster vibe, but I felt the scenes with women were just too mean. This was countered a bit when a woman kicked his chair out, but not by much. That being said, the dance just screamed “Simon hip thrust” the moment I saw it! I don’t think this will be as universally liked as Gangnam, and indeed it doesn’t feel right sharing what looks like bullying to my kids and what sounds like mother f’in gentleman (I know it’s mother-father only after looking up lyrics). I still like and admire Psy and I was really glad this video got some attention. Thanks to Simon and Martina for making such a great video!! You really redeemed the song for me and I absolutely loved your version 100x more than the original! I particularly loved Martina in the wig *super cute!* and when everyone started breaking it down and dancing on the bridge…awesome

    • Not into Gentleman either. The beat that comes in at 8 secs DRIVES ME INSANE!! It’s hard to watch the video without getting a headache from it.

  220. Ooohhh. So that was the phat beat Martina was dropping. I get it now… And this song is now on my phone. Thanks guise!

  221. bigbangfosho

    I LAUGHED SO HARD. this is brilliant, I can see a lot of work went into it. Man, that’s a lot of kimchi. I kind of felt like it should have been Simon and his ranch xD

  222. It looks like you had a lot of fun!! :D

  223. I was wondering if you could do a TL;DR on religion in South Korea. I know many Koreans aren’t religious, but for the ones who are, how big of a role does it play in daily life? What have you noticed? Thanks!

    • some of them are, I think. here’s a great vid for an all-round view of religion in SK http://twentyfirstarticle.blogspot.kr/2012/07/my-korea-church-experiences-part-1.html
      Then there’s this blog, which has two parts, on the bloggers experience with religion in SK http://twentyfirstarticle.blogspot.kr/2012/07/my-korea-church-experiences-part-1.html However, be warned – it’s not a kind blog about it, but rather talks of the bloggers encounter with fanaticism (and he’s Korean himself)

    • where did you even get this notion that “many Koreans aren’t religious”? that is a very ignorant statement. do a little research before making a blanket statement like that. Christianity is very prominent is Korea.

      • Isn’t it ignorant to point out specifically Christianity when you’re talking about people being religious (you completely ignore the other dominant religion, Buddhism)? Also, at least from an American standpoint, South Korea seems hardly religious at all. About half the people in South Korea are irreligious (this is the largest group out of all religions/non-religions in South Korea). It’s still a huge difference from the US where 3/4 of our people are Christians (only about 1/4 in South Korea), other faiths make up 6%, and unaffiliated makes up 20%.

      • Around 45% of people claim to have no religion at all, while around 30% of people are Christian. So in fact, I believe you are the ignorant one!

        • Hi there. I hope that this comment will put an end to either of you using inflammatory language to make your points to each other.

  224. Nice! Excellent job guys! :D
    Mad props to Soo Zee for finding the exact same spot!

  225. Elanor

    It was really good guys! xD I laughed so much. Simon I love your duckface while you are dancing… xD And it was really good to see the EYK crew in it… it must have been fun to film this. xD

    • I know, i want to be there too it looks so fun!

    • Ha! Yes, this was lots of fun and a lot of laughs. That first scene, walking up the hill, was so difficult, because cars kept on coming by, and then there was – I’m not sure how – but a grandma stampede. Like, every time we tried to film it, some grandma on a cane would walk by, and we NEVER see grandmas in that area. Just…for that one moment: a wave of grannies.

      • Elanor

        Maybe they came out because of the good weather. xD Grandmas like that. :D Anyway nice job, I think we nasties really appriciate this and this KMM fit with the song and MV perfectly. :)

  226. Waited quite a while for this… EXCITED!

  227. Please do Jay Park’s Joah next week!

  228. Dude you guys had me a Eat Your Kimchi like a Man!
    in a crappy day like this one in the US you put a much needed smile in my face.

    And may I say that , kimchi lotion rubbed on any body is probably worse than explosive diarrhea.

    • Agreed….I was following so closely on twitter for when this posted because I needed a break from all of the saddening news out of Boston. Goes to show that laughter will always be the best medicine.

      • One of my friends had her guardian angel watching her. She ran past 5 minutes before the explosion. People are just messed up.

        S&M this is awesome. Off to spam Psy. :)

        • Sandeul Baro

          I saw what happened on the news today and I was just shocked…I send all my prayers out to the families of their lost loved ones and to the people who got injured…I’m glad your friend didn’t get hurt!!
          And yes I agree, some people are just messed up..

  229. Much love to the EYK crew! Your hard work is appreciated!!
