Yes! We are finally going to talk about U-Kiss’ “Standing Still” which we skipped over last week. Was it worth the wait? Do your thoughts line up with ours? If you haven’t seen it yet and haven’t formed your thoughts on the matter, you can check out the video here:

 

So, what we feel is basically what we’ve heard from a lot of other people. Great song, but really boring video. And it seems like we like the video LESS because the song is so good, almost too good for a video like this. U-Kiss dancing/homeless. We’ve seen it with so many of their other videos. It’s almost not terribly bad, because U-Kiss’ dance is so great here that it almost makes up for the terrible bizarre shots of the colour contact wearing girl and the burning rose. Burning rose? Really? Come on now! I mean, I know U-Kiss has seen us talk about their homelessness in videos before. They MUST have seen it. I’m just wondering what happened when they saw the flaming barrel. One of them – probably Eli – must have thought to himself “oh, f**k! Never gonna hear the end of this from Simon and Martina.” Admit it Eli. You thought it. I know you did.

One thing that we felt in this video: we’re not sure if you felt it, but does it seem like DongHo kinda got screwed over in this video? He’s always in the back or off to the left when everyone’s dancing. You try to see him, but he’s got people dancing in front of him most of the time. He’s desperate for attention! It even gets to the point that he’s switching is hairstyle between shots, from ponytail to poofy, hoping someone will notice him, but still, nothing. Dongho doesn’t really take center stage that much, it seems.

Another thing we cut out of mentioning in this Music Monday; it was a bit of a nitpick so we skipped over it, buy we found the shot of them walking towards the screen, all in a line, pretty hilarious. Have you ever tried walking in a group of big people? You don’t line up like that. You can barely talk to the person that’s two people away from you. How do you talk to the person all the way at the end of the line? And where do you walk like that? This is Korea! The sidewalks are crammed! The two of us have difficulty enough holding hands while walking without bumping into people or having to single-file our way through a crowd. U-Kiss all lined up like that would result in them clotheslining everyone in their path.

But, again, it’s the video that’s not so good, not the song. The song’s awesome. I think that this is Ryan Jhun’s making, right? If so, Stop Girl and this song are perfect fits for U-Kiss’ sound, IMO. If only they got a video director that matched their style. Point is, if you think the song is as awesome as we do, make sure to pick it up on either iTunes or YesAsia. Other than that, here’s this week’s Blooper Reel, which is really just us screwing up the heartburn skit over and over again. So, if you’re wondering why we went with such a terrible cut for our final version, where we can’t get the bottle to open, it’s because we spent 20 minutes getting the skit wrong over and over again, so we just settled for what we got. Ha!

  1. As a Kiss me I felt a little bit dissapointed when I first saw the video. It’s so boring, just like Alone, with that extravagant outfits >.< I kinda had a relacion of love/ hate with those outfits, but I just don't think it's them. I Actually think they are doing this because they haven't win the first place and all. I understand it must be hard for them, because it's hard to Kiss me but still I can't imagine how hard it is for them not to succeed as they wanted to. However I think they should stop trying to be like other k-pop groups, because they are so unique and talented and that's why I became a Kiss me in the first place. I still love them but that's how I feel. U-kiss fighting!

    Great song! I thought the video was good; maybe not as good as Stop Girl, but it was still good.

  3. *irrelevant comment* omg Saengie in the background! o.o

  4. That super jr. vid was hilarious and I loved it immediately for having imitated a scene from Oldboy.

  5. Seraphina yang

    U-KISS FOREVER

  6. Yes, homelessness, it seems the acquired items from “Stop Girl” were repossessed. Maybe to pay the fines for not dancing!!!

  7. Oh yeahh..Super junior versus TVXQ’s Balloons, i am waiting for the world to explode..bring it on Simon and Martina!!

  8. Oh Simon, I think you were trying to make Martina laugh on purpose during the standing still ad in the bloopers. Good job! You were so funny!

  9. sweetest-song

    U KISS!!!!!!!

  10. my theory is: U Kiss is homeless again because they blew up their house in Alone~

  11. Anyone seen Kiseop’s tweets with pictures from bathtub he posted today? For a moment I thought that someone hacked his account lol XD Kiseop you so nasty!

  12. Madison Thompson

    did any one notice eli’s hair or was it just me?

  13. *whispers from the shadows* There are some writing errors in the description. *disappears*

    Oh, and I actually found the “terrible cut” very funny. ^^

  14. jenjenthepixie

    Haha anyone else notice the cat flying in the background @3:00?

  15. Vote for UKISS, they always have the best dance moves ever…

  16. Simon what kind of nasty person are you. If someone is referring vaguely to an act, just assume they mean doing The Boomshakala. So cold the way you do it to me like that? Obviously his boomshakala partner gave him blue balls or something unpleasant.

    If you don’t know what the song is about…then its about the boomshakala.

  17. Vicki Mansfield

    BEAST! FICTION!

  18. This UKISS song was written both by Ryan Jhun and You Tube’s very own JD Relic from the ashila4life channel on You Tube. If you don’t know JD Relic, he and his wife Ashley have covered many Kpop songs in English with a very strong following and got discovered by Ryan Jhun through their videos. JD Relic is also responsible for the beats from ‘Never Land’, ‘Stop Girl’, and Beak Ji Young’s ‘Bad Girl’….. You should invite JD Relic onto your show one day, that would be awesome!!!!!

    Where is Mordney??

    • Anita Visser

      I made a theory why Mordney isn’t here. So here it is:

      Last time, Martina discovered Simon was actually Mordney, so he dressed himself up as a girl. The girl in the MV is actually Mordney. which can be proved if you pause the MV around the 02:33 benchmark. She holds her arm exactly like Morndey would do, plus the clothes match. So, Mordney actually was on the set, dressed up as a girl! Or… Mordney actually IS a girl, who dressed up as a man in the past! What do you guise think? Is my theory true or is Morndey just on vacation? (:

  20. That girl creeped me out so much!Didn’t like the video that much,but the dance moves…was there a dance where UKISS weren’t touching themselves?But the song is amazing!
    Vote: Batoost!!! As much as I love UKISS,B2ST are always first place for me :)

  21. The girl in the video confused me, too. I kind of get she is supposed to be the one doing the standing still and watching idly while the guy is all burning up and hurt; her eyes look nicely demonic; even the burning rose is a sort of a blatant symbolism, i.e. “our love is burning and dying” or the like.
    But why don’t make more of a story then? Show her interacting with U-KISS or something? No one was too afraid to do it in Shutup, and the guys were younger/

    Either way, the song is awesome, and the dance left me in a shameless puddle of fangirling goo.
    As for the showdown, I vote for U-KISS.

  22. Vote: U-Kiss

    Why? why must they always be homeless? I’ll share my dorm! :)

  23. This was so funny, especially about the dancing law, very creative! :)
