To begin with, before we talk about the video, I would like to take a moment to bring to your attention the awesomeness of my shirt. As soon as we saw it on Threadless we knew it would be saved for a U-Kiss review. And so we bought it, and kept it hidden, until the glorious day would come that U-Kiss would be voted for us to review again. Buahaha! And so, here it is. The hypotenuse shirt. (For those of you who don’t get what I’m talking about, check out the English breakdown in our U-Kiss “0330″ review).

Ok, the song! Here’s the video for it, if you haven’t seen it already:

 

Awesome! We’re so much happier with songs like this than we are for 0330. We’re not fans of ballads. We do have to say that we thought the video for 0330 was a lot more happening since it was plot driven. You remember 0330 right? It was filmed one the same location as Mr. Brohoho’s Music Video Set Business, and Dongho’s girlfriend, Dialtone. But seeing a cool water dance is also nice…stomp in those puddles!!!! TEACH THEM A LESSON ABOUT DAMPENING MY PANTS!!!! YES!!!! *cough* Sorry. Hate wet pant legs.

It didn’t suffer from our same complaints as a Super Junior video, though. The sets here, at least, are interesting. While videos like Mr. Simple have great dancing from good looking guys and nothing else really going for it, this video at least had a cool set. Really cool, with snow and ice. We don’t really get the meaning of the set, though. Sleeveless shirts aren’t really the best apparel for snow and ice. Couple this with f(x) wearing leather for “Hot Summer” and you’ll see our old notion confirmed: Korean people don’t ever feel the weather, ever. Summertime they don’t sweat like us sweaty foreigners, and wintertime they barely wear enough clothes to keep warm. But maybe Koreans can also suffer from cold nipples which would explain why UKISS looks so darn angry. DAMN YOU COSTUME DESIGNERS!!! Neverland should be set in a warm tropical island surrounded by mermaids and pirates! I guess pirates just aren’t considered “cool” and “sexy” anymore. But Martina would like to see a kpop video where all the members are dressed up in swashbuckling gear while fighting and dancing in style. True swag people. True swag. Alright, enough talk, I’m sure everyone just scrolled down to find out the winners anyways. Is anyone listening to me? Hello? Herro? Probably not. Fine then. I’m going to go make some ramen.

The Kpop Music Monday 1 Year Anniversary Contest Winners!
First off, we’d like to thank all of you for all of your awesome responses to the contest. We didn’t think that we’d get so many great answers. To be honest, we forgot about a lot of our silly skits and jokes, and so we ware amazed at how many people remembered them and quote them as their favourites. My personal favourite (Simon): from T-ara’s “Yayaya”. Not that it was our favourite video ever, but that scene we did outdoors. I pretended to be the guy who gets trapped by Martina with her feather duster. At the end of it I say “I love you crazy indigenous lady.” Little did you know, the name has stuck with us ever since, and I call Martina by that name every time she does something strange…which is all the time. She’s my special crazy indigenous lady for life.

And my favourite (Martina) was when Spudgy beat the crap out of Simon. Probably because it feels like he really wants to do it in real life since Simon always makes him dance. Plus he has a really deep crush on me and secretly is trying to off Simon. Oh the Spudgy.

But that’s our answer. Your answers, the thousands and thousands of them, took us three hours to read through. GAWD! There were some really really awesome answers and it was hard to pick. BUT we whittled our selection down to these wonderful people:

    U-KISS, for a few reasons…it has more English (so I can sing along), it has a really great dance beat, and I like the angry energy vs. the cute, “omg oppa” energy. Thanks guys, great video!!!

  25. hahahaha the neverland scenes was way too hilarious xD simon as captain hook totally stole my heart XDD gosh how i luv ya guyz~♥

  26. NGL, I laughed SO HARD at the fighting game sequence. Specifically the “SHO U KISS!” It was dumb, but so hilarious!
    Also, Neverland kicks Pinocchio’s ass by a mile.

  27. Neverland!!! Not a KissMe..but i think i’ll be one after listening to this!

  28. i just want you guys to know that i love your show, i started watching kpop videos and i stubbled across your top kpop songs of 2009 and i’ve been watching your show since then. i’m planning on going to korea for a semester in college and then just seeing what happens from there. i love your show keep up the good work, and that bumble bee outfit looks adorable on spudgy

  29. Stacie Sullins

    U-Kiss Neverland would be a better theme song for Disney.

  30. The best disney edition in k-pop is Neverland ^^ 
    Pinocchio doesn’t have any sense.. 
    Here’s a comic version of Neverland that we made a few days ago for our blog! Hope you guys like it: http://cuentoscoreanos.com/2011/09/02/u-kiss-neverland-is-cold/ It’s in spanish though..

  37. umm even though i’m a SM fan but to boys,i pick U-KISS…. :D

  38. Spudgy looks so sad at the end, being trapped in a bumblebee suit :(

    Watch where you step next time guise, he might piddle a puddle in a secret nasty place..

    I’m not even a fan of U Kiss but i think they’re really underrated in Korea!!! I cant believe they never won ANYTHING yet~~ their vocals are really good and those dance moves are killers!! and i have to admit those smooth English lines in this song added to their appeal..

    So really, what’s wrong with them Korea?? =(

    p.s

    can you upload that pic of JYJ pweeeeeeease?????? i want it …..because it was on eatyourkimchi best kpop vids ever <3 

  44. My vote goes to f(x). 
    The song by U-Kiss is too heavily synthesized for my taste. Call me old fashioned, but I like to hear the actual voices of the singers. If I want to hear metallic sounding voices, I’d rather go and talk to Darth Vader

    U-Kiss gets my vote because their awesome dance move smashes the sexy windows while f(x) only wipes them! =P

  46. I really enjoy watching your reviews and bloopers; you guys make me laugh so much! :D I’m glad you gave this video a good review, since I looooooooooooove “Neverland” and I’ve had it on repeat for soooooooooo long~ Hehehehehe, the video game scene was epic! The background “music” seriously made me believe it was from an actual video game for a second! Good job guys! Keep doing awesome work! 
    I’m sad that I didn’t win anything, but hopefully in the future~ ^.^Oh yeah, and I vote for “Neverland”, aha ha ha~ OH YEAH! AND HAPPY CHUSEOK!

  47. Simon, let me explain the ice. See, it melts because of the awesome hotness of the boyz.  Just like the fangirls watching the video. It tries valiantly to recover (as do we) but then we glet slammed again BAM! with those radiating pheromones and the ice and fangirls succumb.

    U-Kiss!! What a great video and song. Loved your video interview with them too.

  49. OMG!!! I laugh a lot!! XD Ok between UKISS and f(x)… I don’t know…. so hard… ok… i pick f(x)!!

  50. Neverland is the definite winner. <3
    KISSME U-KISS ohyeah…. 

  51. Anonymous

    NEVERLAND. DEFINITELY. sorry, i love f(x), but Pinocchio was LAME compared to Neverland.  In fact, i barely even knew U-KISS till Neverland came out.  NEVERLAND IS WIN.  I’m so freaking addicted to the song……..

    also, if i were to redo that last contest now, i’d pick the scenes in this video where Simon plays Peter Pan/Hook. Definitely your best yet, and it put me in such a good mood that I laughed all the way through that video game thing….lol.  

    ….and Martina’s pronunciation of Xiah (the first time in this video, especially–around 6:11) sounds like someone opening a canned drink……. o_O was that on purpose?

    and another thing, i love that you’re wearing Phineas. P&F!!!!! lol….especially since this is the “Disney Edition” XD XD

    Basically, this video is my favorite EYK video ever. XD

    I have to say, this k-pop music Monday was AWESOME! Seriously, made me lol like X10000. (its over 9000!!!) Seriously? You guys had such awesome material this week. Great job, for realsies.

      Oh! And I also have to place my vote for U-KISS this week. Because although neither U-KISS nor f(x) have the “Disney” thing going on, U-KISS’s flappy arms dance makes it seem like they’re at least trying to reach Neverland, unlike f(x) who stare at their Pinnochio balloon thingy in horror. PLUS THIS SONG ROCKS!!! A-A-AAAAAAAAAAA-A-A-A-AAAAAAAND!!!

    Your shirt is fantastic, but I think this shirt is better:

    Also:
    See these rocks! Let’s go play on them!

    Bwahahaha.

  57. cloiebuggeater

    U-Kiss def gets my vote. 

    Oh, Thanks so much for embedding the blooper and music videos in your blog.  It’s  much easier than going back and forth between youtube and here.  

  58. Just a note, as awesome as Yes Asia is, it doesn’t really help with the Korean sales charts. It’s better to go through Bugs or Aladdin or somewhere like that. (if it’s possible)

  60. Sorry EYT, No one can beat Dongho’s version from Kiss Me Day. It was the best thing EVER! I vote for U-KISS – no questions asked. 

  61. AHHHHHH WHO GOT THE BIGBANG SHIRT?!

  62. lesley kahinga

    u-kiss all the was i love ya kevin

  63. Harini Bhat

    Martina you just got THAT much cooler for having a JYJ background on your laptop

  64. Love the shirt and wallpaper!!! OMG where did u get that wallpaper!? I want it!!!!!
    Anyways, I guess everyone has their own taste bc I liked 0330 better than Neverland. In Fact, I dont really like the song. It’s too all over the place for me. But I liked the line “fashion, fame, and everything in between.”

    Oh and my vote goes for Ukiss. bc f(x) video makes less sense.

  65. Simon, I really really love your Phineas’ shirt, it was awsome I’m a girl and I would wear it jijijij…. and spudgy was so cute in this episode (more than usual) ♥♥♥
    My vote goes for f(x)’s Pinocchio

    SPUDGY IS SO CUTEE. When I saw Simon’s shirt, I already felt that this would be a very awesome video… Twilight spoof FTW! This video seemed very Kevin and AJ biased…hmm, wonder why~? ;D

  72. A few other things:
    I love the Phineas shirt! Kpop pirates would be amazing!I adore Spudgy-bell! So cute!I love that they finally put the abilities of their fluent English speakers to use. I don’t get how they could’ve let past mistakes by in their songs and not at least point out that they are wrong. But whatever.And finally, my vote is for Neverland!

  73. In terms of the video being set in a snowy place instead of the tropics, in a way it kind of makes sense to me. I can’t remember if this was in one of the movies or in an adaption of the play, but from somewhere I can remember it being that when Peter wasn’t in Neverland or was extremely emotional, like depressed, it became frozen and barren. It was when he returned that life came back to the island and all the ice melted away.
    I think because they are trying to convince the girl to leave with them to Neverland its frozen, either because they aren’t there or because they are so distraught over the girl not being with them.

    Ok! I revoke what i said last week! THIS Kpop music Monday is my favorite one! Everything about this video was freaking HILARIOUS!!!! ( Kpop street fighter, U-Kiss’s evil elbow punch and deadly banana peels!,”how old are you? 18!”, “she said she hates my tree house!” D;). Im sure Kevin from U-Kiss will watch this and love you guys even more! (but we love you guys more! Dont worry Kevin! We love you guys a lot too!). I have to say your a bad influence on me, I’m sitting in college right now and instead of writing the paper i have due tomorrow i watched this video…… i regret nothing! Good job guys! You mad my day once again! :D

    Also! U-Kiss! We love you guys and are so glad your back! I love the new album! Keep up the good work! lots of love from Texas! U-Kiss fighting!

  92. And yeah! Simon and Martina, you guys are really funny!^^ I like how you dissect music videos! Keep it up! Is it just me but I just noticed that you were a little kinder this time around to UKISS…hhhmmmm…Is there a contributory factor that you met them in Korea and they were so nice and jolly? Or Neverland just suited your taste a bit than their past MVs and that’s it and nothing else? :))

  93. can i hang out in the freezer too?

    and wow, that’s a hard one. i like both DDD:

  94. I definitely vote for U-Kiss, although F(x) was definitely Disney themed with the floating Mickey Mouse heads….I really really really like Neverland. So Neverland it is! ^^

  95. Awesome such a super Eat Your Kimchi Episode again! Go with the sassiness!
