U-Kiss – Neverland: Kpop Music Mondays

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:

YouTube: hangukeando & omnichelle
Eatyourkimchi: KarlieChoi & Alexandra E. Rodríguez
Facebook: Oana Nia & Ulrike Biesemans
Twitter: @gluecks_los & @Kourai32
Tumblr: dellpafalla & kawamiya
Google Plus: Elizabeth Agresta

Now, the way claiming your prizes works is simple: first come, first serve. If you’re a winner, send us a message here. Our email inbox has timestamps, and we’ll see whose emails came first. First one to respond will take their pick of the prizes. Last one will, unfortunately, get the last pick.

Thanks to YesAsia and YesStyle for hooking us up with the CDs for the giveaway. And to those of you who still want a CD, but didn’t win one, you can pick up U-Kiss’ new album from YesAsia.com. GET IT! IT’S GOOD!

  17. 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?? =(

  20. 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

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

  22. 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!

  23. 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.

  30. Haha you’re most welcome! Ah, so excited that you actually commented on it!

    And I was thinking into it a little more, about how everything starts to melt towards the end. I take it as a good sign for them, that the girl wants to be with them, that sort of thing.

  31. 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

  32. 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!!!

  36. 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)

  41. 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.

  42. 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) ♥♥♥

  48. 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!

  62. 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? :))
