U-Kiss – Stop Girl: Kpop Music Monday

September 25, 2012

We told you that if U-Kiss won the KpopCharts this week, we’d release their interview footage sooner than later. And so we released it yesterday. Check out our Interview with U-Kiss + Backstage Footage for “Stop Girl”. But now, it’s time for our Music Monday review. Woohoo! For starters, if you haven’t seen the video yet (shame on you!) you can check it out here:

Woohoo for U-Kiss not being homeless anymore! In previous Kpop Music Mondays we commented on how U-Kiss are often in squalid dwellings, and how they seemed like Kpop idols turned squatters. But not anymore! They have their own place now! Great success! Even greater success is that we weren’t the only ones who thought this. We spoke with Kevin while they were filming this video, and he said that they noticed the same thing, BEFORE WE MENTIONED IT IN CONVERSATION. Does that mean that U-Kiss and their management thought of that themselves, or did they watch our Music Mondays and take what we said to heart? If that’s the case, then how many other labels are taking what we’re saying to heart? Best case scenario, SM WILL STOP PUTTING UP THOSE GODAWFUL ADS! COME ON SM! I KNOW YOU SEEN MY MOVIES!

Otherwise, we’re not sure we’re really fond of the Black and White version of the video (although Martina disagrees because she likes the B&W version). There’s a colour version online as well, and I think that would have been better to go with. The black and white just seems too…moody, you know? Sure, it fits the song and all, but I’m more into my Kpop videos being vibrant. Since the set offers so little in terms of vibrancy itself, then the lack of colour seems a lot more stark. Thoughts?

Anyhow, we’ve got ANOTHER CD GIVEAWAY. Why? Well, for starters, we’re being given more CDs than we had originally planned, so who are we to keep them for ourselves? You guise worked so hard to get them to the top past G-Dragon (seriously big feat there for our site), and you received the interview yesterday so well and gave it a ton of views, so why not give you more CDs? We got em, you deserve it. So, here’s what you gotta do to win:

And, lastly, here are this week’s Bloopers. Dr. Meemersworth stole the spotlight today. We’ve got no idea why, but if the camera’s on, she REALLY wants to be in front of it and doing all of the crazy things she does. Or she just wants to be cute. Can’t blame her. She is quite cute!

  1. WHY IS NOBODY MENTIONING THE SUPREMES’ ‘STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE’!!?! Sailor Moon, but not the Supremes? sigh.
    Also, I really can’t choose between Kevin and Eli’s parts. Kevin had the awesome dance, but Eli had those suave rap parts… GAH!

    • not even kidding, “stop in the name of love” was the first thing that came out of my mouth after i saw the video. and then i was singing a strange combination of that and “stop girl”…
      needless to say, everyone around me for the past few days has been very confused. very, very confused.

    • EXACTLY, when my friend posted this on my fb wall, I was like “ERM, SUPREMES REMAKE? OHGODHELPMETHISISAMAZING.”

    • I was totally thinking the exact same thing….seriously U-Kiss is channeling their inner Supremes….and I would give them a high five if that was intentional because the Supremes were amazing!!!

    • Thank you for mentioning it! That was the first thing I thought of and then I grimaced and thought, “Gah, older audience reference!” LOL!

    • That’s what I was thinking of whenever U-Kiss says that part.

    • that is what I was about to to write when i saw you comment. All i can think of every single time is …”STOP in the name of love before you break my heart. think it ooo oo oover”

    • I’m pretty sure Kevin was about to break out into the Supremes Stop in the name of love during the interview.. He’s too cute!

    • sailor moon was a huge part of my childhood, but the supremes were definitely my first thought~

  4. When Simon said ElVin xD I had a giggle fit…don’t know why…
    Anyways, my favorite part of the MV would be….
    well, my bias answer would be the Eli-centered parts i.e. the beginning when he’s looking all hot and sexy and just a bit tortured (keeping in mind the theme of the song) and when he’s on that chair looking like a boss!!!
    but if I take off my bias-colored glasses…I’d say, the Kevin dance with the female back-up dancer…I mean it was so unexpected and cool…like Kevin said, it was scandalous!!!

    My favorite part of the mv was Kevin and Soohyun’s solo dances, it was really awesome ^^
    (But I feel kind of sorry for Dongho and his seaweed hair…. xD)

  6. I feel like I should have more to say, but I have only one question on my mind: Martina, are you wearing circle lenses? O_O

  7. I loved EVERYTHING about the video but if i did have to pick out something, that would be – the members each got individual brooding spaces (and more screen time) with different settings as compared to their earlier videos where more than one member would be present in a frame at a time. And the slick styling (save Dongho’s hat) which as Martina said MUST be incinerated.

    And, i can’t pick between Eli and Kevin.. *woe is me* I just tossed a coin and it said Kevin (Eli, I’m terribly sorry).

  12. The “SEUNGRI, TIME FOR KISSES” character cracks me up even more than before…

    • So can we safely conclude that she is Seungri’s official girlfriend?

      3 years ago
      • She’d better be! The girl who reported (or made up) that story to Friday complained that Seungri didn’t kiss her, so I guess screaming “SEUNGRI, TIME FOR KISSES” as a reminder from time to time is a smart thing to do with him.

  13. Argh You guys how can I have a favorite part… I thought the whole video was just brilliantly awesome!! > . < …If you must insist though my favorite part must be 1:19 till 1:21 when all the members dance together. :) (that part where they're lowering their heads once with the beat was very cool too :D) ( Youtube username : addicted2anime123 )

  14. Have you seen that in the new TVXQ MV the add is only for like 10 seconds? Seems like SM took to heart what you said ^^

    My favourite part is Kevin’s solo right before the chorus. Dayuuuummm the epicness. Not only the dance, but the lyrics as well…I sing it randomly when I’m with my friends and they go…o.O right. Fly away. Have fun. XD

    Although I feel like saying, the english version of this part:

    Somedays I don’t feel like trying (really? I don’t feel like trying everyday… =P JKJK)
    Somedays I can’t take the lying
    Today’s the day that I’ll be flying away…..~~~~

    IS EPIC. Speaks straight to my heart.

        • Yeah I’ve been doing all I could but FB wasn’t doing anything for me (of course the thing that gives the most points).
          Some1 told me to try Chrome and it works now but unfortunately I think it’s too little too late.

    My favorite part was kevin’s part with the female dancer. its about time they had some girls in their vids!
    and i also like the group dance. did not really get a lot of dongho though. such a shame.
    the set is also simple and nice. i prefer the simple sets with cool lighting.

    oh simon, your shirt, its a tribute to a.j right? lol

  21. OK seriously guise, I think the U-Kiss management now know about EYK and KMM segment, they even retweeted it lolz

  22. i completely agree. but besides them as performers, i feel as though they are so approachable. i loved when S&M met them on jeju and kevin asked them if they should do an interview. unlike so other idol groups i feel like U-KISS as just regular people are friendly and don’t take for granted any opportunities to make themselves available for a “hello, how are you doing?”

    My favourite part of Stop Girl is Kevin’s solo with the female backup dancer! He was so cool and manly -squeals- *___* I loved the giant chess piece decoration (haha Dark Knight reference ftw!) in the background and the chessboard they were dancing on (:

    Btw, SIMON, your Phineas tshirt is awesomeeeeeee!

  24. My favourite part of Stop Girl MV is the choreography, especially at the solo’s of Kevin and Soohyun. The moves elaborate Kevin’s flexibility, and emphasizes of Soohyun’s build and hot bod. The English was awesome, even Soohyun who is not very fluent in English could belt out ‘Heart is Depleted’ which I am very very impressed with. the beginning of the song leads us into suspension towards when the song might begin, hence overall, UKISS ONCE AGAIN HAS PROVED THE BEST OF THEMSELVES! Proud of them!

  27. I vote Kevin. He’s just so cute and cheerful. XD Having them personally introduce parts of Music Monday was OSM!

  28. Favourite part of mv was the part where Kevin sings “todays the day that I will be flying away” first time and the camera angle is sort of high. I dont know why,but that part struck to my mind. :)

  31. although i really wanted crayon to be reviewed i LOOOOOVED this week’s KMM! it definitely shows when you guys are truly having a good time filming~ this is definitely my favorite U-KISS song to date. i agree with you martina about the color version being better than the black and white. i like B&W when different values and lighting are being implemented. With the set being B&W, the pop of color in their hair and clothes are exactly what my eyes need for a dynamic video.

  34. My favorite part of the MV is the dance that starts at 1:05. I like the arm spinning.
    ..Well, actually, after much thought, my favorite part has to be that UKISS are no longer homeless! Yay!! Kiseop doesn’t have to sleep outside anymore!
