U-Kiss – Tick Tack: Kpop Music Mondays

December 19, 2011

Ladies and gentlemen, this is going to be our last Kpop Music Monday of 2011, and, luckily, this song is AWESOME. Holy snap. U-Kiss is really getting better and better, and lately it seems like we like every song more than the last. This is perhaps their most epic sounding song. “Neverland” sounded like a Kpop song, but this sounds like a Hollywood Summer Blockbuster song, no? Something about it sounds so epic, which brought about our only slight complaint about the video. The video’s not bad, but it’s not good enough for a song this good, know what I’m saying? We’re looking for a adrenaline filled Ukiss rushing to save the day kind of video, but we also know that many kpop bands have gone for the “movie like music videos” and unless the budget is there and the CGI is sound, it can go very very bad. So all in all, we still do like this music video.

If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the video:

On that note, we’d like to say that – as you can clearly see – we really like this song, but it’s going to be our last Japanese or non-Korean song we’re going to review. We thought when Super Junior M’s Chinese song “Perfection” was voted in for Music Monday it was just a one time thing (but then we also did SHINee’s Japanese remake and now this UKISS song), but it seems with all the foreign language remakes coming out lately, we might start slipping into the “It’s a Kpop Artist But Not A Korean Song Music Mondays!” So in order to stop that from happening, we’re starting 2012 off with a new rule of focusing on Korean songs only!

But…that does mean…we’re taking out all the non-Korean songs from the How To Dance Kpop 2011, so we’ll be adding in an extra day of voting to let people up the votes on their other favourite songs.

Speaking of How to Dance Kpop 2011, you have little over 24 hours left to vote for the best Kpop dances of the year. We’re ending the voting on 11:59PM Tuesday, South Korean time. Vote vote vote!

Anyhow, since this song is so awesome, we’d recommend you support UKISS and click here to buy it! pick it up via YesAsia. Maybe you can give it to someone for Christmas!

Speaking of which, we’re not doing a Kpop Music Monday over the Christmas break this year. We’re spending the Christmas weekend being Christmasy, rather than working. Sorry everyone, we need to recharge for the New Year! We’ll make up for it with How to Dance Kpop 2011, which will come on the Friday. Woot woot!

And, lastly, here are this week’s bloopers. Simon just got a cold, Martina’s cold to be correct, which is why he was so lifeless during this video, but that didn’t stop him from being semi-funny…in a sad hamster kind of way.

  5. I haven’t watched too many J-Pop videos lately, but from being into J-Pop years ago it’s been my observation that J-Pop music videos are overwhelmingly, predominantly artist-focused–just the musical act dancing/lip-syncing to the song.  There are rarely any epic, “cinematic” J-Pop videos the way there are in K-Pop.

  10. …Did you just call Manmanhani “Man Man Panty”?! Ahahaha, that is hilarious. I can’t watch that video again without thinking of that. :D

  11. ‘Little bo peep has lost her sheep and doesn’t know where to find them. Leave them alone, and they’ll come home, wagging their tails behind them.’ I totally thought of sheep when I heard T-ara’s song and was also disappointed by the lack thereof.
    I think that song is just called “Turn Me On”.
    Also, in regards to the non-Korean songs, I think it makes perfect sense when all it is a remake of a song that is originally Korean. But sometimes groups put out songs in another language and its an original, never in Korean song. I think those songs should at least count for Music Mondays.

    And in other news, I vote for U-kiss!!!!

  12. The lyrics are actually “To Lie” but I love the review!! You guys never fail to make me laugh. :)

  13. I love your reviews!

    I love U-KISS and their Japanese song Tick Tack as well, but Kevin tweeted that it is “to lie”, not tonight. But it’s okay, I though it was To light, or a mispronunciation of Tonight.

    Fighting~ ! ^___^

  15. The clock part actually looks really similar to Arashi’s Monster PV , and if anything Arashi’s been around since 1999 so you really can’t go wrong with using that for your japanese debut lol.

  16. UKiss in Tick Tack~ the clock dance was amazing! Love it and I’m definitely going to go dance to it like every day!

  17. K.

    I’m so glad you explained the title of this song, because it was REALLY bothering me. 

    U-Kiss has grown on me in a major way. At first I was all “meh.” But after Shut Up (which is STILL in my k-pop rotation playlist), Neverland (AWESOME song, can’t help but dance when I hear it) and now this….. Yeah, I have to respectfully place them as third under Shinee and Infinite as my favorite kpop boy bands. Nice job U-Kiss. I’m sure you’re very proud to be third on some random girl’s semi-meaningless list. Fighting! :-)

  18. Thanks so muh for reviewing Tick Tack! I guess I can stop spamming the polls, now… Oh, well, there’s still “Neverland” to vote for. 

    I think the English usage may be worse that it appears, because one of the song composers (JD Relic) on Twitter keep saying it’s “”To lie” I shall be singing for you through the night” because the theme of the song is lying. It makes a lot less sense than “tonight”, at least in English.

    I vote for U-KISS’ clock dance. I adored IU’s moves because they were so cute and so clock-like, bu the guys have separate dance crews competing against each other, which is just cooler.

  19. I think you
    should have developed a different system to vote. It would be unfair if you do
    How to Dance Kpop 2011 according to the chart as it is now, because most people
    vote for “Tick Tack” just for Kpop Music Monday. That doesn’t mean they think
    the dance deserves to be in the top 10 of the year.
    I still found the idea of having a Kpop Chart awesome, but it should be use in
    a different way.

  20. First, Merry Christmas to you both, I hope you have a great holiday!

    Second, though… the lyric is “To lie” not “Tonight”, and the song is about a man who lies to his girl because he doesn’t want to hurt her.

  21. actually,..we got a huge problem with the english in this video about weather it’s tonight i should be here OR to lie i should be here but anyway i definitely think UKISS tick tack clock was more obvious and epic..and as a male version of Genie..i guess..no?..fine then

  24. Nice review as always! =) buuut…
    “…we’re taking out all the non-Korean songs from the How To Dance Kpop 2011…” I understand that you want only focus on kpop songs (and technically Tick Tack is JPop), but changing rules one day before voting ends…. many people voted for Tick Tack and now it’s just taken out like that :/ oh well, going to vote for something else then…I wish you two a peaceful and well-deserved hoilday! Can’t wait to see you back in 2012 with more awesome videos! <3

  27. I watvhed this video a zillion times as well as repeatedly playing it on my ipod and phone :) This song could have been a mini movie and the dance was fantastic!! It is their best thus far :) My vote is for U-kiss, obviously, hehe they were fierce!

    4 years ago
  28. I would want a movie video just to watch them for 9mins tbh

    Also, fyi Kevin (and I believe Eli as well) tweeted that the song is about lying

    Voting for Tick Tack, although it was a really hard choice since You&I is one of my favorites

  29. I will definitely vote for UKISS. Though I do find both videos amazing I saw that UKISS showcased more “clock-like” moves compared to IU >< I am also inlove with the intensity of the moves and the overall song so it is another factor for why I voted for them as well.

  30. “..we’re taking out all the non-Korean songs from the How To Dance Kpop 2011” which means that Tick Tack won’t make it? Darn it! Well no can do; off to vote for Neverland :)

    • Yeah.  Really sorry.  We’re not taking it off because we don’t like it, but because we’re trying to focus on Kpop.

  31. Thanks for this you guys it was AWESOME (as always!!)
    I also agree they seem to be getting better and better!!  Love these guys!!
    BTW….Shipping out a goodie box to you guys tomorrow….wanted it to get there before Christmas, but I failed at getting it out in time!  Sorry!!  Keep an eye out for it in like a week or so  :3

  33. I think your new rule about Korean language songs is fair, but … imagine if you had not reviewed JYJ’s Ayyy Girl because it’s in english!!!!
    Most of your and our favourite jokes would not exist!! Maybe you could limit your rule on remakes and still review originals songs even if they are not in Korean?

  35. Totally agree that UKiss is gettng better & better. It’s refreshing to watch a group ACTUALLY grow instead of sound bites about how”*they will work harder*. Clearly they have the *it* factor. Wish you could do/get another interview with them….Kimchi-Docu…chat with them, discuss math theorems…that kind of thing. ;)

  36. Agreed, I loved the music video and I thought the dance was amazing! Don’t worry Martina, you are not alone. I have also had my fair share of dorkyness trying to do the cool slide dance. Needless to say I failed.

    I’m voting for U-Kiss’s dance. Even though both U-Kiss and IU have dance moves relevant to their song, U-Kiss’s dance has more technicality so they get my vote. Plus U-Kiss are probably watching this review LOL.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you guys too!!

  37. but… They said “To lie, I shall be here…” That’s no English to me…

    • Seriously?  Hell.  It sounded like “Tonight” to us.  “To Lie” is…umm

      • The writer of the song put on his twitter account that the lyrics are “To Lie” and Kevin posted it as well. Seriously everyone thought it was “Tonight”

      • Everyone thought it was tonight, but then somebody from the company said it wasn’t or something like that. Not sure what the official story is, but it’s definitely to lie.

    • It’s “to lie” because in Japanese the lyric makes sense.

  40. Hey guys. I was wondering if you could put up the link to CDJapan instead of YesAsia cause the CD copies’ counts on CDJapan will contribute to the Oricon Chart in Japan. ^^;
