The Best Kpop Songs for a Workout

March 25, 2014


Share Post

Hey guise!

This isn’t our typical Kpop Music Monday, but we like to switch things up a bit from time to time. We’ve been on a bit of a health kick lately, and have talked about our somewhat healthy lifestyle in a few videos. For our latest video on Our Morning Routine, the topic came up of talking about our Workout Playlist, so we figured this would be the best time to do so. Booya!

We talked a lot about our Kpop Workout Playlist, but we’ve got a bunch of non-Kpop songs as well that we listen to when we work out. Here’s a list of them, along with links to the vids on YouTube, if you feel like watching em!

A Sample of Simon’s Playlist

Japandroids “The House That Heaven Built”
–Great song for both a workout and a run. Totally gets me pumped, especially after reading dumb stuff on the internet, I totally feel like shouting “anyone wanna bring you down/ Tell em all to go to hell!” Quite cathartic.

The Knife “Full of Fire”
–Warning! This is a seriously WTF video. I didn’t even get to the end of it. I just really like the song. It really fits my running pace, and it’s got a bizarre dark energy vibe to it that really puts the fire in my heels. Is that what old people say? Stop judging me!

Pharell “Happy”
–Hey! A non-grumpy song! It’s great for running as well. Better for running during the day than running at night, though, I think. Also helps me keep a great pace. Great for the end of the run when I can barely lift my legs anymore and I feel like I look like a toddler trying to walk: it keeps my feet moving. Fun stuff.

Benny Benassi “No Matter What You Do”
–Probably one of my favourite songs of all time. It’s my power song for any moment. Tired from running? Play this, boi! About to bench a bagillion pounds? Play this, foo! I could fight a dragon listening to this song. Nothing gets me quite as pumped. Warning, though: another WTF video. I only saw it for the first time today and gave up halfway through…

M.I.A “Y.A.L.A”
–Great song for fart-licking! Especially when the chorus kicks in. Run a regular pace for the verse, sprint your ass off for the chorus. I do find the rapping in the verses rather silly, though, and the two of us make fun of it all the time:

I’m the Spuuuuud-gee!
My fur is smuuuuud-gee!
Don’t hold a gruuuudge-G
Cuz you can’t buuuuudge-me.
Hey I’m the Meeeeeemers
I am a dreeeeeamer
You’re just a screeeeeamer,
whenevs I preeeeen…err?

Still a great song, though.

A Sample of Martina’s Playlist

Electric Six “Danger, High Voltage”
–One of my all time favourite bands, who were just as awesome and energetic live. This song gets you up and dancing and shamelessly shaking your head violently to the chorus despite all the people watching you. It’s best not to watch this music video unless you’re prepared for an oddly sexual video. I mean odd. Like glowing electric light bulb boobs and crotches. You’ve been warned! BUT THE SONG ROCKS!!!

Death From Above 1979 “Sexy Results”
–A great beat for lifting weights and doing glute kicks. It’s not a very fast beat so you can control your lifts for every other beat or to the beat if you please. I like it for those glute kicks (the one when you are on all fours and curling one leg up to your chest and then kicking out) because it’s the perfect beat. Also, I like sexy sounding sounds to motivate me, it makes me lift weights with more joy and with less grudge towards the fact that I am indeed exercising. HAHA! Sexy workout music is like going dancing at a club to a great song except that you’re working out…at a club…to a song. Plus, DAT COWBELL SOLO!

Crystal Castles “Vanished”
–I use this song as an example simple because I use this song for my intensive jump rope sessions. For the days that I don’t run to get my cardio in, I jump rope between weight lifting and abs so that my heart rate doesn’t drop to low. I jump to the beat for as long as I humanly can but I could have chosen any song off of all the Crystal Castle albums. This band is freakin’ amazing and I actually like every single song they have ever made. Like ever. Angry? Crystal Castles. Depressed? Crystal Castles. Happy? Crystal Castles?

Jamiroquai “White Knuckle Ride”
— OOH! An official music video! Finally! This is a funktastic song that just gets me in the workout mood. I often start my workout with this song to get me into the mood as I head towards the gym. It’s a great beat for a warm up jog or some light biking to get your heart rate up and if I’m not using it for that I use it for sit ups. But whoa…the video kind of sucks for this awesome song.

Nine Inch Nails “The Hand That Feeds”
— There are a whole lot more NIN and various other rock songs on my workout playlist (like Korn, Deftones, 24Hours, Telepathy, Gogostar) but I wanted to include this song because it has a great build up that I can anticipate. I use this for planking which is a horrible horrible invention made to torture people. I stupidly tried to do the “Hollywood Ab Blast” workout on my Nike app which was only 15 minutes long. 15 minutes of hell. 15 minutes of you flailing on a mat like a fish out of water while trying to balance your side plank while also doing flapping V things with your legs. Looks soooo easy when the instructor shows you how to do it. Point is, this song allows me to hold my plank for the 1 minute I’m supposed to because I’m angry at having to do the planking and NIN guides me through that anger like a spirit animal. A lovely, angry, vampire/Snape-look-a-like spirit animal.

Martina’s Bonus K-pop round: 2NE1 “Hate You”, GD&TOP “Oh Yeah”, Beenzino “Boogie On & On”, MBLAQ “Oh Yeah”


So let us know what you think! Did we miss out on any super awesome songs? We need more recommendations! We’ve heard our playlists for a long time now, and the songs are starting to lose their effect on us. We need moar!

Speaking of moar, we have moar video! Some bloopers, in fact. Check em out!

The Best Kpop Songs for a Workout


Leave a Reply

  1. Hey Simon and Martina, I’ve actually been watching your videos for years on Youtube, but I just recently joined your website (I’m a bit late I know….)I love you guys so much, thanks for all your informative and fun videos. :)
    When I work out its usually running so I either listen to really upbeat, pump you up songs, or songs that have a steady tempo if I’m running long distance here are mine: (Kpop only list)

    1. Overdose- EXO
    2. Oh My Prince- Neon Bunny
    3. Holler- TTS
    4. Smoky Girl- MBLAQ
    5. Volume Up- 4minute
    6. Step- f(x) Or just about any f(x) song works
    7. Scream- 2NE1
    8. Run- EXO
    9. Lipstick- Orange Caramel
    10. Motorcylce- SNSD
    11. Very Good- Block B (AGH LOVE block B!)
    12. That one T-ara song where they say “nah oto-kay”… i think its called “do you know me” in english. I’m not entirely sure, but thats a great one.

  2. Simon and Martina!!
    I’ve only been watching your videos and I finally checked out the website and I’m glad I did! I made an account just to leave a reply here: First of all, fartleks are definitely a thing (one of my favorite workouts) and I am soooo happy to hear that you are running, Simon! I love running and trust me it only gets easier and better. Now I don’t really run with music… mostly cuz you can’t really race with music…but I sure do get pumped with my mp3 before and play my jams in my head during!! These are the best songs that get me through workouts that pre-kpop I seriously sucked at:
    1. BTS: Boy in Luv
    2. BTS: We are Bulletproof Pt. 2 (We go hard!! Click click bang bang!!)
    3. EXO-M: Growl
    4. EXO-M: Run (only cuz it’s called run :3)
    5. BAP: 1004
    6. BAP: Warrior
    7. Henry: Trapped
    And then are there a few non-kpop ones that have always got me going Paramore’s Now (there’s a time and place to die but this ain’t it! lol) and Part II (gives me such a fighting spirit)
    ANYWAY this was a really long comment but it was my first and yeah. I would love it if you guys could tell us a little bit about running and sports in Korean culture. Are track/cross country (and other sports) popular or even avaliable in most high schools? Do people just go for jogs by themselves often? Is it an active community? Like some places in the US you see people out all the time, but other places you never see a runner or biker… Would it be unusual to see a girl out for a run? ~too much curiosity~

  3. I forgot that Martina used to be a punk kid lol until I see her playlist :P but all great music to listen to while working out. Thanks you two <3

  4. I really loved this vid – for I was kinda hoping you would provide us a list with the perfect tracks to work out with – Anywho! I actually made a Kpop work out playlist on 8tracks with 45 tracks – thus far, for I plan to add 5 more to make it to 50 tracks -. Here’s the link below, hope you guys like it ^^

  5. You guys should make these downloadable playlists on 8tracks! It’s a great way to share a playlist easily. :D

  6. I really love that you guys posted your daily routine, is it possible you guys could show us or blog post your work out routine? I only ask because I know Martina has her joint issues and I suffer from an auto-immune disease and my joints and muscles hurt on a daily basis. It is hard for me to find a work out routine that I won’t be out of commission for 3 days over. Martina is looking slim, cute and tone, and I know our female Nasties want to look like her too… not to mention the male Nasties want that Dothraki Man warrior look as well.. Thank you guise! you are an inspiration to all of us!

  9. Wow, you said that and I started laughing because a friend of mine makes joke vampire noises whenever the sun glares in her eyes ;D I imagined you doing that and am glad no one else is home with me because they might have come out running asking me why I was choking! (sometimes a choking sound comes out when I laugh too much and no longer have air to breathe hehehheheh)

  11. Damn your music taste is awesome. I need to find a good slice of time to go thru all of these. Checked out Idiotape, loved it!

    Going along with the main comment’s discussion here, the other day I saw a bunch of kpop tumblr blogs warning people to not send EYK their fanfics bc they’ll destroy them, say racist shit abt them, etc and they had their list of reasons why EYK were “terrible people” and it honestly made me laugh out loud. I think one of their points was “they constantly mispronounce some group’s names on purpose even though they’ve been asked to stop.” Um, they can do whatever the fuck they want. If you don’t like it, THEN STOP WATCHING IT. NO ONE’S FORCING YOU TO.
    /rant over

    Even though I may not agree with everything you guys say, there have been several times when I’m having a crappy day and when I watch one of your vids, it gets loads better. Your TLDRs are also actually really helpful bc I’m Korean but I’ve lived in the US all my life so honestly I learn about the practical parts of Korea through you guys. It’s awesome, keep it up! =]

  15. Let me start off by saying you guise really look great. Keep on workin’ on your fitness.

    When I moved to Toronto, I decided I was tired of the whole treadmill/cross trainer thing and signed up for dance classes. I’ve done burlesque and pole and before I broke my wrist, I tried a hip hop class. I intend to return to it (wearing my Taemin, TaeMan, TaeMaximum! t-shirt) once my wrist feels better. While my instructors welcomed requests for songs, we mostly did routines to songs of their choosing.

    I’ve warmed up/done routines to:

    Cracks (Flux Pavillion Remix) – Freestylers feat Belle Humble
    Dub on the Track – Cher Lloyd feat Mic Righteous, Dot Rotten & Ghetts
    Bamboo Banga – M.I.A.
    XR2 – M.I.A.
    Miss New Booty – Bubba Sparxxx feat Yin Yang Twins
    The Ballroom Blitz – The Sweet
    Tigerlily – La Roux
    Girl Gone Wild – Madonna
    S&M – Rihanna
    Come Alive (The War of the Roses)
    Scream & Shout – will.i.am feat Britney Spears
    Up ‘N Down – Britney Spears
    Come Alive (The War of the Roses) – Janelle Monae

    She Wolf – Shakira
    Run the World (Girls) – Beyonce

  16. I like listening to “Neverland” and “Someday” by U-KISS when bicycling. “Someday” is good for bicycling up a hill!
    Other good songs for bicycling: “너 한눈 팔지마! (Remix Club Ver.)” by Girl’s Day, “In The Air” by B1A4, “Love Beat” by After School and also “Aphrodisiac” by Akanishi Jin, “Another World” by GACKT, “トレゾア” by DaizyStripper (perfect background music when you’re not in the hurry).

  17. A song that is really really good for working out is After School Bang. It is super motivating with its drumline and all. Whenever I hear it, is like military mode ON and time for some serious exercising. Then seven minutes and fifty six seconds later I give up and end up eating snacks again……crying alone in a dark corner……lol!!!!! As for this controversy thing I didn’t know anything until I read the comments. From what I get it is about the joke about bap’s name Simon and Martina made. I am a bap fan since their warrior days, I watched that KMM when it came out and I didn’t even think much of it. People might have been offended and it may have been an excessive joke, but I think that EYK were joking about the fact that bap who had a strong image with all of their songs warrior power no mercy oneshot badman and even their name is an acronym for best absolute perfect completely changed this style into sentimental staff, which are quite conventional in the kpop world and started crying a river(bad Timberlake joke SEE it can happen to anyone). So I think that Simon and Martina did not really wanted to hurt bap because of a personal grudge……WAIT!!! Unless Simon and Martina wanted to become bap members but didn’t make the final cut in which case the personal grudge reason woul be true. Whatever only one thing is sure AS RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(Oh and T-ara and Girl’s Day and Dal Shabet) there I finally said it…….

  18. I liked the playlist you guys made up (or rather just your favorite songs to workout to) and you brought up good points. But I noticed that the more I workout the less “fast-paced” the music is that I listen to. I noticed sometimes I move too fast, or want to move to the rhythm to music, which isn’t going to work.

    I’ve also been training for a half-marathon and I first loaded my playlist with lots of upbeat and fast pop songs. I slowly noticed it was an easier run if I switched to rock songs. 1) I stopped mouthing lyrics which made breathing easier, and 2) I think I stopped running so fast. Which is what you want to do, but not really if you are trying to run for a long distance.

  19. About the fartlek…since I´m from Sweden and I´m a former elit tennis player…i have done a whole lot of fartleks…..the translation is speedgame,,,,,if you ever feel bored running at the same tempo…you could jogg at the verse and rush at the chorus:)

    By the way.. I love the sporty part of you guys. You should start a new sporty segment FACK-U
    Finding Athletic Challenges Korea-Uhhh so nasty…:s

    I´m a sporty girl and if I ever come to Korea I would want to know were I could do taekwondo, play tennis, basket ball, ping pong, fotball etc.

  22. Hi Simon and Martina,

    I realized you have been getting a lot of negative attention lately. Some are really uncalled for “ban them for making videos” and what not. Do know that I am an avid (silent) fan who watches your videos on a daily basis and keep returning to the past videos over and over again.

    After a long day of teaching, going back and watching your video is something to look forward to, and the experience is priceless. I hope you don’t get discourage by all the negative comments. I’m sure there are others in the world who are like me! #nastiesforlife

    All the best S&M and I hope you never stop making videos!

  23. Lee Hyori’s ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ is great for sprinting; sprint during the chorus and it feels awesome. xD Non-kpop wise, when I’m running, it has to be the Mortal Combat theme! “test your might” indeed.

    3 years ago
  24. First off, Martina, I’m curious! Have you ever watched the live action Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon drama? I love it! The theme song is definitely one that makes me wanna work out hardcore; I don’t even know why! If you haven’t watched it, you need to. It’s just so cute. >3

    I’ve realized that I have a LOT of J-Pop that makes for good workout songs. Some of the best ones are
    Drive Alive – Lead
    Don’t U Ever Stop – KAT-TUN
    Hero – Fairies
    Jumping Go Let’s Go – Hayami Kishimoto

    And there’s a few English songs that are really motivating also! Like Bon Jovi’s Have A Nice Day and It’s My Life. I also think ‘Sexy And I Know It’ by LMFAO should be on everyone’s playlist. XD Running on the treadmill like, YEA DAS RIGHT IM SEKSI AND I KNOW IT~ HAAAAY~’ LOL!

  25. I only workout to Kpop (or almost entirely). Mainly for when I run since I do pilates and other stuff at home, and when you’re home, well you can just do all this in front of the TV.

    For myself, here’s a few tracks that really help me run :

    9Muses – Ticket
    I always put this song first when I go running. Why? Because it helps me set my pace to aroung 5~5,5min/km. If I’ve been lazy and not going for a while, I try to not use it because I always run faster when I starts with this song. I think it has to do with the BPM, but I feel like it also has to do with the way they sing the chorus. I don’t really know, but it also worked for everyone that tried this after I told them about it.

    Exid – I Feel Good
    I also feel like this song was made to have an intense cardio session. It’s not as well known as other songs, but it’s extremely energetic and most of my friends that are not really into Kpop like to dance to it too.

    Miss A – Lips
    This is such a great song when you’ve just reach the exact half of you’re 5 or 10km run. It helps reset your energy to keep up for the other half. It’s such a shame they didn’t do a MV for this track because it’s that great.

    Baek Ji Young – either My Ear’s Candy or Good Boy
    Even though she’s the “ballad godess” of Korea, I really really prefer her up-beat track, and they are really great for working out. I like My Ear’s Candy for the first part of my run, then Good Boy for not too far from the end. It helps me keep some kind of motivation and the rhythm

    Fiestar – We Don’t Stop
    Because it actually say “Work it baby!” and “We don’t wanna stop”. Yes, the bridge is a bit girly/cheezy and reminds me of those old techno track with girls singing and stuff. But even though it’s not the best song there is, I actually enjoy it when I work out. Just like some Hello Venus tracks that I usually don’t enjoy much if I listen to them when I’m not working out.

    T-ara – Yayaya
    How is that not a work-out song? I don’t know. It makes no sense and and super repetitive, and that’s why it works so well.

    Girl’s Generation – Trick
    Just because I really like this song, and it’s energetic. It actually makes me think of the SNSD when they started to get big (Gee, Tell My Your Wish, etc.) without the “I’ve heard it sooo many times already” part to it.

    And of course
    2NE1 – I Am The Best, Scream
    Clazzi – Love & Hate
    f(x) – Electrick Shock
    Glen Check – French Virgin Party, 60’s Cardin, 84, Leather
    Peterpan Complex – Can’t Take My Eyes Off You
    SuperKidd – Feel Good
    Venus Kim – Exercise
    WHOwho – Her
    Girl’s Day – Expectation
    Rania – Just Go
    ZEA – Phoenix
    U-Kiss – Standing Still
    WonderGirls – Like This
    Neon Bunny – Oh My Prince
    From The Aiport – Colors (mainly when I go for a run at night and everything is quite and peaceful)
    BoA – either Action or G.A.B
    Primary – See Through (feat. Zion.T & Gaeko)

    3 years ago
  26. My ultimate songs for working out are (note: I barely run the threadmill or jog, so these are more for pilates/lifting weights etc..):
    #10 EXID – Who’s that Girl
    #9 15& – Somebody
    #8 U Kiss – Tick Tock
    #7 LED Apple – Time is up
    #6 Fiestar – Vista
    #5 2PM – Don’t Stop Can’t Stop
    #4 GOT7 – Girls Girls Girls
    #3 Wonder Girls – G.N.O.
    #2 TVXQ – Are you a good girl?
    #1 JYJ – Mission

    Those always motivate me to keep on going somehow hahaha!
    I really like your list though! I’m totally gonna add some of your suggestions to my list ^o^d

  27. Gosh, I really needed this playlist! I’ve been exercising to a lot of my favourite songs but I find you start to hate the songs (as you listen to them so much) I find “the illest”- far east movement is an awesome some to exercise to, makes me feel so powerful (even though when i dance i just sway and flap my arms like a chicken) Love to see you guys experimenting more these days, keep up the good work <3

  30. Nice video ! If I do any workout, it’s usually in my living room so I used to think that would be really nice if someone did a KPOP workout video !

    Block B – Freeze
    GD & Park Myung Soo – I Cheated (or whatever the title should be in English)
    Ailee – I’ll Show You
    BIGBANG – Tonight
    ZE:A – All Day Long

    Yeah…it’s long…but I hope you like it!

  33. These are a few of my favorites for walking or jogging:

    – Hyuna “Bubble Pop”

    – Super Junior “Outsider”
    – Eun Ji Won “160”
    – Nicki Minaj “Starships”
    – Hey Rosetta! “Yer Spring” (this one’s great for morning jogs)

  34. I started running more regularly recently and I suck badly. I started with 2km and I now do 3km. But in my defense I live in Malaysia where it’s hot and humid as f**k. When the haze was really tough and I couldn’t go run outside, I switched to the treadmill and I ran 4km easily. So I think I should get better quite fast if I keep it up, especially when I get back to Europe.
    Thanks for the playlist!

    Here are 7 songs from my go-to Kpop playlist for running:
    Run – Epik High (Duh. Also motivational especially if you’ve seen the video – if you haven’t, watch it now!)
    Into the New World – Girls Generation (This song makes me happy and hopeful and energetic as hell. It makes me want to run into the sunrise and do awesome things with my life)
    Shake it Up! remix version – Super Junior (on the Bonamana album)
    Wild – Nine Muses
    Request – Infinite (See Into the New World)
    A – Rainbow
    Let out the Beast – EXO (YEAAAH)

    These songs don’t necessarily have a good BPM but I rely more on the feel of the song, the energy it gives me. Plus they’re great songs and focusing on what I’m hearing relieves the pain.

    Wake Me Up – Avicii
    On Top of the World – Imagine Dragons
    Around the Bend – Asteroid Galaxy tour
    …and I’ll add more later because I can’t think of any for the moment.

  40. So guys. I have this problem where I hate working out. I get really angry. Seriously. I was told that “exercising releases endorphins that make you happy!” And my reply was “Well, that must work backwards in my body as well because it makes me angry.” But you know what I started doing? KPOP DANCES! Of course I could never attempt the really complicated dances… I once tried SHINee’s Lucifer… Oooooh boy was that a mistake. XD But even though I suck at dancing and would never show it to A.N.Y.O.N.E. I actually completely learned VIXX’s G.R.8.U and Rock Ur Body, and have been working on some others lately. :) I gotta say, even though I hate working out/exercising, learning Kpop dances is fun. Although, there is a dangerous side-effect of wanting to dance along to the song whenever it plays on my iPod and I’m out in public…… Yeah, can’t let anyone see that….

  42. Oh my goodness! There are so many good workout songs out there! You already mentioned a lot of the good ones. I LOVE working out to “Happy”! I also LOVE working out to “Sail.” Here are some of my other favorites.

Because of his work with Swings on “A Real Lady”, I got into Beenzino and Swings, and from them I got into, Zion.T, GRAY, Mayson The Soul, Simon D, Primary, some others I can’t remember atm… ugh, they’re all so good. I had heard about some of the others before, like Simon D on one of the tv programs. I’m already a fan of MFBTY, Tiger JK, and Tasha because of you guys!

  46. Kim Hyun Joong- Unbreakable, Break Down, GI- Beatles, Gi Yeuk (I’ve recently rediscovered this song and have been listening to it non stop) Alphabat- Tantara, Ledapple- Time Is Up, Orange Caramel, Crayon Pop, 2NE1, C-Clown- Justice, Rain- La Song, 30Sexy, TOP- Turn It Up, Doom Dada, BAP, Beast- Soom (because it reminds me to breathe XD), Bigbang, Block B, Brown Eyed Girls, BTS, EXO- Mama, History, Wolf, f(x), GD- Coup d’Etat, Crooked (for running of course), Heartbreaker, Breathe (for more breathing), Girl’s Day- Expect, Female President, Girl’s Generation is great for running, Infinite, KARA, Jaejoong, LC9- Mama Beat, MBLAQ- Smokey Girl, Stay, Mona Lisa (all for running), and This Is War for reps (because there is nothing more satisfying than doing a rep when they go OH in the chorus hehe), MFBTY- Sweet Dream, Miss A- Breathe (for more breathing), Seungri- VVIP, SHINee, Sunny Hill- Grasshopper Song (for running), Super Junior, T-ara N4- Jeon Won Diary (running), TVXQ- Humanoids, Keep Your Head Down, U-KISS- Shut Up, Man Man Ha Ni, Bingeul Bingeul, Dora Dora, Neverland (running), VIXX- GR8U, Wonder Boyz- Tarzan, Junsu- Incredible (running), 100%- Want U Back, 4Minute- Huh, I My Me Mine
    This is literally my entire playlist. If you notice, it starts off randomly but then starts going alphabetically because I was trying to fish out all of the songs by a single artist at first but then realized I could just organize it alphabetically… and then I now just realize that I’ll have to put it back into the general order I had it because I separated my running songs and my rep songs. Darn you alphabet.

  47. I actually have a lot of songs that I work out to (if I even work out at all…) but I’ll try to trim it down for you! :D

    1. A.D.T.O.Y
    2. Bounce by JJ Project — that’s actually a good one for running too! Because it’s all fast paced and then gets into the rock style and slows down some!
    3. Most of 2NE1’s songs
    4. Warrior by B.A.P — It makes me feel like a warrior when I work out! :) WARRIOR HUH!!
    5. I Feel Good by EXID — Like the title says it makes me believe I feel good (even when I’m not…I’m so out of shape)!
    6. Neverland by U-KISS
    7. Eat You Up by BoA

    P.S – I’ve never been offended by anything you’ve said in your videos. I may not agree with somethings but everything you’ve said (and I literally mean everything) has made me laugh. I wait all week to see your videos and they make me feel very light and happy once I finished watching them. I just want to say that I will forever be a Nasty! You all (Simon, Martina, SooZee, Leigh, Spudgy, and Meemers) have made my life brighter and I have you to thank for getting me into Kpop! I owe a lot to you! Thank you for everything and just stay yourselves! Hwaiting!!

  49. I’ve really been liking the newer format of kmm where you focus on a bunch of different bands. I don’t really enjoy watching people get competitive in comments sections and even though you don’t get to delve as deep into an mv as you could before, there’s not a whole lot of innovation happening in K-Pop these days. I really appreciate the Indie bands you’ve shown during Hongdae Fest and have fallen in love with Glen Check. Thanks for keeping everything fresh and still being true to yourselves. You guys are the best!

  50. Personally, I really like these lists!! This idea might be more Martina focused but as a random idea for a future list–would you be up for doing a list video on your favorite J-Pop or C-Pop videos? I know those aren’t eligible for KMM’s, so this would maybe be a good way to share your favorites with us!

    I sometimes did mini Kpop dances with my hands while I was on the treadmill. I also accidentally sung out loud sometimes. I got a lot of odd looks. They clearly do not know the joy of going ‘Waaaarrior HUH!’ while weight training.

  56. I loved that you guise ended up making this video! I’ve been on a health kick myself and trying out different kpop songs to work out too. On my playlist (I named it “werK it” xD):
    BTS – “We are Bulletproof pt. 2”;
    CL – “멘붕” and also “The Baddest Female (나쁜 기집애)”;
    EXO – 으르렁 (Growl) (great for running on the treadmill, but I’ve been struggling as well as Martina not to break into the dance xD);
    Taeyang – Ringa Linga;
    Girls Generation – Mr. Mr.
    Also, kinda non related, at first when you started to change up Kpop Music Monday’s format I didn’t liked it at first… But I’ve come embrace it and at actually antecipating the next monday, wondering what you would do. So, thank you (: I really enjoy this way of keeping things fresh (:

    CNBlue’s “RUN” is actually very good for running (I run veeeerrrry slowly though..LOL).
    Super Junior’s Mr Simple is definitly a great work out song.
    Big Bang’s “Still Alive”.
    Crayon Pop- Bing Bing
    Dynamic Duo- 쌔끈해 (Three Dopeboyz) [feat. Zion.T] and 살발해 (Forever Young) [feat. Beenzino]
    G-Dragon- 세상을 흔들어 Shake the World

  59. yeah, k-pop has the best songs for workout… I hate workout but, as Martina said “Sexy workout music is like going dancing at a club to a great song except that you’re working out…at a club…to a song”… YOU READ MY MIND!
    when I jump I like to listen to Crayon Pop “Bar Bar Bar” and G-dragon’s “Crayon” :) U-Kiss’s “Doradora”, Trouble Maker and MBlaq’s “Smoky Girl” are great sexy workout songs too, IMO
    also, 2ne1’s I’m the best gives me a good feeling, like “yeah, I can do it… I’m the best!”
    everything is better with music :)

    I completely agree with you guys and have ADTOY (Pooniya Pooniya), Sweet Dreams, and Sexy, Free, and Single, Happy by Pharrell and NIN on my workout playlist. But I also have a lot of songs from 30 Seconds to Mars (The Mission, Attack, Closer to the Edge) and Linkin Park (Breaking the Habit, Papercut, Numb) in my running playlist. Evanescence is great one (specifically Bring Me to Life). Viva La Vida by Coldplay always makes me feel good during a long run as well. I would def recommend those and Perfection by Super Junior-M and Stop Girl by U-kiss (simply because its fantastic).

    I have a pretty long playlist, but the ones that really get me going are Big Bangs Fantastic Baby, Brown Eyed Girls Abacadabra and especially Junsu (Xxxxxxxiiiiiaaaaaahhhhh) Incredible. I am always like ‘Hells yeah, I’m Incredible! !!’ Good motivation when I feel like I am about to vomit all over the treadmill. X

    (No particular order because I tend to shuffle my playlist)
    1. Super Junior’s “Sorry, Sorry” (I still remember the dance to this lol)
    2. U-Kiss’s “Neverland”
    3. 2PM’s “Hands Up”
    4. SHINee’s “Ring Ding Dong”
    5. Shinhwa’s “This Love” (Not a very upbeat fast song but I love the beat)
    6. Junsu’s “Incredible” (Holla to that English yo)
    7. CNBlue’s “I’m a Loner”
    8. After School’s “Because of You” (… The only girl group. orz)
    9. DBSK’s “Mirotic” (A bit old but awww yeahhh uvu)
    10. Epik High’s “Fan” (One of my favorite songs of all time, seriously)

  67. When I’m running I like songs that get me motivated to run a lot. CN Blues Run, MBLAQ’s Run and LED Apple’s Run to you(which play in that order, are really nice towards the end of my run when I am feeling a bit tired) The 1st two songs I will sprint with the chorus and run normal with the rest, for the last one it’s a nice constant pace to finish it out.

  77. I like dubstep for fast paced workouts such as running, erging or jump roping. I love kpop for lifting weights because I unfortunately mouth along to the words I can’t help it! At least when I’m lifting weights I’m breathing less heavily and can mouth the words without looking like a dying fish. But definitely one of the best songs to work out to is GLAM’s “I Like That” it’s so catchy and sassy.

  78. G-Dragon’s The Leaders is AMAZING for sit ups and weightlifting!

    The “what’s up, what’s up, what’s up” can really get you into it. :D

    Mostly rap but I regulate my breathing with the rappers and so it helps me run longer and at a higher pace.

  85. I ride my bike to the harbor/beach about two cities away during my two hour lunch break, and usually on my way there I listen to soft, pop, or alternative Japanese rock (ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION, supercell –nonvocaloid-vocals, Deco*27 –nonvocaloid-vocals, Base Ball Bear, etc) because it really compliments the beauty of scenery and each day while I’m heading there.

    On my trek BACK however, I’m blasting Kpop. Especially since heading back is now hills or gradual inclines the entire way. The song that really helps me keep at it when I feel like giving up is “We Don’t Stop” by FIESTAR. The chanting of the lyrics as it builds to the end really gives me motivation to keep pumping as I feel like quitting.

  90. I listen to all kpop at the gym. In fact, I actually usually watch the music videos too because it’s more distracting than whatever’s on the TVs. Here goes! For the treadmill, I’m not supposed to run because of back and tendon issues, so I just speed walk like an old lady! I usually do 3 faster songs and then one slightly slower song, then 3, then 1, then 3, then one much slower song for a cool down. The current lineup is Humanoids (TVXQ), Lipstick/Funny Hunny (Orange Caramel – I go back and forth each time), Beautiful Target (B1A4), Pierrot (JYJ – this is the only one without a music video but the song is the perfect tempo), Lucifer (Shinee), Bling Bling (Dal Shabet), Standing Still, (U-kiss), It’s Over (Lee Hi), The Chaser (Infinite), Be Mine (Infinite), and finish off with Incredible (Junsu) which always gets me pumped for the end. Cool down song is Mirotic (TVXQ). For weights I love BAP – Warrior, No Mercy or Power. All fantastic with great shout-a-long-able parts for extra motivation :D

    I also listen Capsule’s song they are great and I love them, my favorite songs are I’m feeling you, spider, sugarless girl remix, glider and fruits clipper. They are one my favorite japanese bands after Miyavi of course (I recommend Ahead of the light for working out, guitar plus electronic beats fires me up).
    Thank you so much for your incredible work, I send you greats of love from Mexico and I hope you keep doing this for a long while. You are awesome

  93. This video changes from the usual KMM and that is a great idea (expecially because I started to think about re-doing work-out lately, but I’m just too lazy xD)

    For some ideas of motivational songs: Bad Boys and Time is Up by Led Apple is quite great to do squats. Hearbeat from 2PM is also great for abs. For running, 2NE1 is awesome (especially The Baddest Female and I am the Best) it makes me feel so awesome and gorgeous (but in reality I am all sweaty and almost fainting xD). MBLAQ “Oh Yeah” and “Mona Lisa” too. And “Huh” and “Ready Go” from 4Minutes too.

    As for non Kpop song, Work by Ciara is quite great to run or doing abs. Any Shakira song is great too. And Bella from Maitre Gims (and now, all the French here are going to laugh at me, but this song is highly rhythmic, with a latino vibe, and I can’t resist to that kind of rythm). And the majority of the kabilian songs have a fast rythm, which is great.

    And for all the bad comments, as we say “Haters gonna hate”. The most important thing is to do what you like, and not to do what other people wants you to do. :)

  97. Before my doctor banned me from the treadmill for a while (ankle probably needs reconstructing+former dancer+hyper-flexibility=9 out of 10 pain on the treadmill) I found that most ANY Kpop would keep me at a good pace. The best? “ADTOY” for sure, “Unbreakable”, “Run Devil Run”, “Ocean of Light” and “Sherlock”. When I needed to slow down “One Minute Back” and “Symptoms” by Shinee. Now that I can’t run *crysobcry* I have to bike I watch dramas and go as fast as I can. Nothing like Kim Soo Hyun to make me go faster ;-)

  100. Do you know a website where I can look at the BPM of K-Pop songs? Preferably where I can sort them for a specific BPM?

    Lately I worked a lot on bettering my running form to avoid injury, as I have unfortunately weak knees so I have to look out for things like that. Anyways, a good running form is around 180 steps per minute, which you can regulate with a playlist with a uniform BPM. As I am quite short it isn´t really hard to do more but smaller steps, but I would recommend it for you too! It not only protects you from repetitive injuries, it also helps you get a better performance.

    I run currently to a playlist with 170 BPM but I am slowly working up to 180. I use jog.fm to search for songs with specific BPMs (and you can directly use the playlists in spotify!). Unfortunately no K-Pop there :(

  108. My “workout” list consists of K-pop songs that I’ve learned or am learning the choreography to. I don’t really do typical gym workout things. I may suck tremendously at the choreo but it’s fun to do and has me dying after an hour or two. At least it keeps me moving and not glued to a computer screen being a potato.

    Choreo Completely(but still fail miserably at) Learned
    Neverland – U-Kiss
    Be Mine – Infinite
    Before the Dawn – Infinite
    This is War – MBLAQ
    Janus – Boyfriend
    The Chaser – Infinite
    Lucifer – SHINee

    Working on
    Tallentellagra – Junsu
    Voodoo Doll – VIXX
    Keep Your Head Down – TVXQ
    On and On – VIXX
    Come Back Again – Infinite
    Sleep Talking – Nu’Est
    Love Like Oxygen – SHINee
    Exo – History

    Never Gonna Happen but I try anyway
    Growl – Exo
    Want You Back, Bad Boy – 100%
    Shaking Heart – C-Clown

    There are plenty of others too. I like doing this because it is like working out your brain with memorization and lots of cardio at the same time.

    I love the songs on your playlists too! Especially the MFBTY Sweet Dream. I cannot get enough of that song lately.

  111. This is perfect! I just started doing a workout (Shaun T’s Hip Hop Abs; it’s so much fun!) and dieting and stuff. I could really use some workout worthy K-Pop songs for going on jogs and stuff! Love it! ADTOY is definitely a great workout song. I don’t think I have any in particular at the moment that I use to work out.. but this video totally inspired me to get a work out playlist going! I will definitely be working on that after work tonight. >:D

    On that note, I want to thank you guys so much! Not only have you introduced me to so much K-Pop that I might’ve missed out on and taught me a lot about South Korea and such, now you’re totally motivating me to work out more. So I thank you guys! The last time I tried to work out, it didn’t work out so well. (HA so punny :P) But now I’m just going to remind myself of this video and rewatch it to remotivate myself if I feel myself giving up. So I thank you, Simon and Martina! <3

If I’m on the treadmill, I find I run better if I have something visual to distract me (from feeling like death), so I usually queue up a MV playlist or use the time to catch up on variety/talk shows, which make the time fly by!

  120. This was an awesome video! Loved that you guys did something different to spice things up a bit for Music Mondays :D Orange Caramel is a must for working out! I have a few recommendations… I find I have to change up my workout music a lot just so I stay motivated.

    “Kill This Love” – Epik High (good for intervals)
    “Dance2Night” – 2PM
    “Eat You Up” – BoA
    “The Scrappy (The Latch Brothers Remix)” – BS 2000 (this is from the Jet Set Radio future soundtrack… not sure if you guys have ever played that game? Highly recommend using anything from that soundtrack as part of your playlist though!)
    “Bibara Bibara” – Stereopony
    “Laura Palmer” – Bastille
    “Red Alert” – Basement Jaxx
    “World is Mine” – Supercell
    “Fast in my Car” – Paramore
    “Pop Culture” – Madeon
    “You May Crawl (Takkyu Ishino Remix)” – School Food Punishment

    … just to name a few :|

  125. I can’t work out and listen to music unfortuantely. I’ve tried multiple times, and my earbuds always fall out of my ear. I think I have some kind of mishapen ears that prevents me from listening to music while exercising. Also, I don’t really want to use those headphones either because I would get them sweaty and gross as I sweat a lot…

    3 years ago
    • I had the same problem – I was using earphones that are like the Iphone ones, but as I was running I would get so sweaty that they’d end up slipping out. Headphones offered a good solution, but the only problem is that I run in the streets around the neighbourhood (for lack of a park) and so it was too dangerous, considering I needed to be able to hear what was going on around me as well, but headphones block outside noise. So if you run somewhere safe, over-the-ear headphones are a good way to go.

      Otherwise, I use this type of earbud:
      Which don’t slip out as much, especially if the piece that goes in your ear is a spongey material unlike the plastic on these ones.

      Or otherwise, this type works a charm:

      3 years ago
    • Did you try bigger earbuds? Default earbuds don’t fit for my giant earholes, so I always have to swap out for the biggest ones. Maybe that’ll help?

      I’ve also seen some over-the-ear headphones that are supposedly great for working out, but I haven’t tried them

      3 years ago
      • I’ve tried the ones that go in your ear, but I can’t use them as jamming something into my earhole doesn’t go in properly and will fall out. Currently my default one are the ones that came with my Iphone, and they fall out all the time. (also one earbud is broken since music isn’t coming from that side.)

        Over-the ear ones feel extremely weird… I can’t get them to stay either… I really have strange ears if the same thing happened with my snake earring…

  126. First of all, loads of love from Sweden here… I still see my fanart on that wall… OOoh Yeah!

    Link: http://popcorn-cloud.deviantart.com/art/An-ode-to-Eatyourkimchi-405821817

    Secondly, to confirm what Simon said (note: not says), yes… Fartlek is apparently a Swedish word. Fart means speed and lek means play (as the verb leka) or game (as in what children do, not necessary board or video games). Literally it means having fun with speed.

    Here is therefore my utterly ridiculous and unnecessary explanation as to why Swedish can seem silly.

    1, Sweden LOVES to connect words. I can literally find a million examples for this, just looking around this room, such as blåbärsblad (blueberry leaves), sidenband (silk ribbons), dammkorn (dust particles), glastallrik (a plate made of glass), balettskor (ballet shoes), etc…

    This is more than obvious since Guiness book of records once listed this as the longest word in the world:

    Nordöstersjökustartilleriflygspaningssimulatoranläggningingsmaterielunderhållsuppföljningssystemdiskussionsinläggsförberedelsearbeten (133 letters)

    which means:

    preparatory work on the contribution to the discussion on the maintaining system of support of the material of the aviation survey simulator device within the north-east part of the coast artillery of the Baltic

    2, if you don’t follow this above rule, you get very funny meanings:

    kassamedarbetare (cashiers) – kassa medarbetare (horrible coworkers)
    herrtoalett (lavatory for men) – herr toalett (Mr toilet)
    rökfritt (no smoking, as in the sign) – rök fritt (feel free to smoke)
    stekt kycklinglever (fried chickenliver – stekt kyckling lever (fried chicken is alive).

    3, we tend to create tons of new words this way… unless the new words are based on a foreign language, new words tends to be made from connecting old words to somehow make sense. When ipads started appearing, they tried to Swedify it, by calling it surfplatta (“att surfa”- means to be connected on the Internet and “platta” means a flat object). It takes a while though before such words really become part of the language, because most still said ipads until the android really started to appear.

But yeah even though I don’t really work out as in a gym and stuff what does it for me is reggaeton, EDM and kpop like Seungri’s “Gotta talk to you” but the Hard remix version. It’s good stuff.
    SHINee -“ready or not”
    2ne1 – “I’m the best”
    BoA – “Action”
    Kim Sori – “Dual Life”
    SNSD – Flower Power
    Eniac – Love again… well most of electronic-sounding kpop will do it for me honestly haha.

  130. Sigh. I’m kinda torn. I _like_ hearing about your workout songs because it’s always nice to get new ideas. I even _like_ some of your choices and it’s a great place for all the Nasties to throw in their choices and discuss it. But………. I kind of feel like this would have made a better TL;DR or WANK, rather than a “KMM-type” video. Or even better, an Open the Happy type video. The video flew by and was kind of fun but I guess that I just don’t like “list” videos, to me, they are boring: I can read a list faster and more enjoyably than see a video about it, the video format is completely unnecessary and loses my attention because there is no enough content to keep my eyes on the screen. This is just my personal preference and I seriously considered if I would even comment on this video at all because just because it is not my cup of tea doesn’t mean that it isn’t a great video for others. To me, the audio pretty much is sufficient to convey the subject, the video is only adds entertainment every once in a while by funny poses. I’ll just try to illustrate my preference this way: take this video – sample a frame every 12 seconds, then play those frames for 12 seconds each and leave the audio intact. Now, if that “new” video has the same entertainment quotient (or higher) than the original, why did you need the video and all that fancy scripting and editing?

    I feel bad if you feel the limit of KMM’s entertainment is funny poses every 15 seconds, but there is a much higher video content than that and the audio is very insufficient to convey the subject and this is what makes KMM a great video (whatever the content) and why I feel that these “list” videos just fall short. Just my opinion, it was still a good video, my expectations were just too high. I hope that in trying to explain why, it makes up for my disappointment in it.

    • Totally valid point. We’ve been playing around with the idea of lists videos for a while now. We’re not fully comfortable with them yet. We’ll keep mulling around the idea, though :D

So do what you want, because your videos always come out great :D Like seriously this youtubing and videomaking is something you started because you really enjoyed it, it should stay that way!

      • I’ve actually been pleased with the list video concept. I don’t usually like online lists because there are billions of them, most ending up saying the same thing and some being too subjective that I don’t really feel comfortable with the choices. But the lists you guise make always resonate with me, mainly because we have similar tastes, but also cause they expose me to a lot of new songs and videos I wouldn’t normally encounter. I must confess, sometimes when there’s a music video at the top of the Kpop charts that I like, but another one ends up getting reviewed for KMM, I get a little bummed out for a moment. Although, that has never happened when I found a list instead of the MV of my choosing. Also, the lists feature fragments of the songs and lots of insightful thoughts about them, which makes for a ‘really easy to digest’ format. I’m always looking forward to your upcoming playlists, because in my books you guise have a great record of endorsing amazing songs.
        I understand why some Nasties don’t find the lists as entertaining as the regular Music Mondays. It’s safe to say that the best KMM videos were the ones that picked apart an MV frame by frame for ridiculously amusing stuff, then channeled that stuff into awesome sketches with hilarious characters. The thing is, lately, very few music videos have provided the amount of entertaining content needed to fill a whole KMM segment. So, instead of an overstretched regular KMM, I prefer a list of videos that helps expanding the search area for comedic valuable scenes.
        I agree that these types of videos don’t rise up to the visual level of epicness we’re used to from S&M, but neither do the TL:DR’s and that doesn’t stop them from being my favorite segments. In my opinion, the writing in them makes up for the lack of dynamic visuals. If you guise think the list video idea isn’t working for the majority of Nasties, I wouldn’t mind if you moved it to a different segment or stick with it just for the blog posts, as long as you keep featuring awesome songs and share your hilarious insights about them. After all you created a pretty democratic system around here:D.
        Lately, I realized that I find your blog posts as entertaining or even more so than your videos.

That way you can scratch your monthly “but we want to talk about THIS video” itch and people voting on the charts don’t feel disappointed that their efforts for the week are going to waste (I vote when I remember to so I really not fussed there).

      • Do you mind if I ask “why are you playing around with the idea of lists videos?” ? Not that this is anything wrong with that but, it seems like a waste of your talents to me. Any yahoo e-tainment host can rattle off a list of things about whatever on whatever but who really cares? Top 10 things to remember to bring to Korea? Useful if going to Korea! Top 10 kpop songs of the year? Once a year! Top 10 kitty treats? Only if I have a dissatisfied kitty! If you’re going to make a list, consider what audience cares about this information on its own, not just because it is delivered by EYK, otherwise you’re just rinsing and repeating the Nasties. Not that you have to grow your audience with each video but you can only rinse your fans so often…..that sounded better in my head ^^;;; To me, most of these list-videos (made by others) are just re-packaging other people’s information or of known information you’ve already given, they seem lazy. If you have something new to say, a new opinion or joke to share, why not be more in depth about it than a list? Aren’t all the EYK videos pretty much about the content? Isn’t that where their greatness lies? It is to me, but I don’t know what it is for you…..just something to consider.

        • Fair question: we play around with the idea because we want to change things up with Music Monday. Some days we’re just not inspired by any of the videos in the top 3. Some days we feel like we’ve been doing the same thing too much. Some days we feel like there’s a bunch of stuff we want to mention, but don’t get the chance to.

          We put lists like this in Music Mondays because I don’t want Kpop spilling over too much into our other segments. Kpop isn’t the most popular thing on our channel. Some people don’t like it at all, and want our other videos to focus on their content rather than music content, so having this spill over into those videos might not get the best reception, you know?

          3 years ago
        • Hahahahahaha! “Valid point”? “Fair Question”? Please don’t give me that kind of legitimization, you are FAR too polite – LOL! I am touched that you have answered but I am just one friendly person out here on the ‘net. Come to my house for supper and then I’ll feel legit ;)

          I can sympathize that Music Mondays are feeling repetitive and maybe don’t always go in a direction you feel motivated to follow. In the past, you’ve really pulled some amazing stuff out of your butts in trying to deal with that but it’s got to be frustrating. I do not have any saesaeng attachment to the KMM format or content and mixing it up is totally great in my book, it’s certainly got to be more fun for the EYK crew……Maybe there is a Simon-and-Martina-special-format that you will find your way to, something that no one else is doing, something you enjoy. I wonder also if there is something completely different that you want to try in the slot? Something sequential or a series that can be maintained for a set period? While all the slice of life stuff in the other videos is awesome, sometimes it’s nice to have a predictable series to anticipate and look forward to. Something you could film in advance? Maybe a different kind of outlet for your mad skit skillz and characters? If you are worried about what the Nasties think, why not create a survey/poll/discussion to get ideas? (not to follow directly or it will be spammed).

          People are always going to object to change, so what? People seem to object to just everything on the internet these days, completely inexplicably and disproportionately to sane behaviour around the world. Crazy be crazy, don’t let it get you down. Maybe some die hard fans will be disappointed but you may make more new ones. You have to move forward yourselves as you want to or these fun times will just become a job, one that you can’t quit since it’s become your life. Don’t let it go there.

        • I like this a lot. Personally I don’t have much interest in Kpop but I tend to watch KMM’s just because you guys are great so I watch all of your videos. But the main reason I like EYK and how I found you guys was through the TL:DRs, WANKs, FAPFAP, and WTFs. If everything was just Kpop Kpop Kpop it wouldnt be nearly as fun.

        • Rather than edit, I’m going to add something/correct myself here. Not to get all Marshall McLuhan about it, but while the content is super awesome, most of the time the greatness is in the delivery that makes (for me) an EYK video great. Seriously, you could make a video about pretty much anything, as long as you keep the delivery method and it would be great. I don’t need to have a Monday video about kpop, but because it is called “Kpop Music Monday”, I tend to expect it to be about that. There are lots of other formats you could play if not lists, I do really miss making up dance names bits. I still can’t put out the trash without “manly sweeping” first ;)

Unfortunately they do not have time for these things but what I’m the most happy about is that the WTFs are back :D yeahh! I also like those MMs where they review like 2 songs they can be sooo much fun for me.

        • I see your point, but I am sad that you do not enjoy the “list videos” as much as I do. Sometimes I forget older songs and then I get reintroduced to them. I also do not listen to every existing K-pop group so in most cases I can always find newer ones. I think it is also a great way to show some other bands to the people that do not necessary have to be Kpop. Also not every Kpop-fan become a Kpop fan in the Middle ages so showing older or newer bands is nice, and yes as you mentioned not every nastie follows S&M from the beginning. I think bringing something different once in a while is refreshing.

        • Well, as I had to re-watch the video with my son when he came home from school, I can say that it has grown on me some . It is definitely, by far, the best of the list-type videos that S&M have put out, I can tell they pulled out all the stops on this one and it paid off.

          Just for the record though, I don’t hold allegiance to any kpop group and I’ve only been watching EYK videos for 2 years now. I do like their suggestions and certainly I skip to school to get my son to lots of their suggestions. I have made a habit of watching KMM then perusing the kpop charts here at EYK to find more tunes that I like, EYK is almost my only kpop exposure. Lots of great songs never even make the top 10 so it is fun seeing what I can find that I like. Maybe that’s my bias, that I consider the kpop charts a list already so I don’t need a video about one too. I do love the discussions here too though, so I am not unhappy about the topic. I also liked the kpopchart update and k-indie lists when they existed. Maybe I am remembering there being a few lists already and thinking that KMM was one too many. Thank you for encouraging me to re-think my views on EYK list-videos more objectively.

        • I actually agree. One of my favorite recent KMMs was the Unsausage Fest Edition, which for all intents and purposes is a list video. I really enjoy the format where they discuss a couple videos at once. Maybe because I’m not invested in any one group (that whole stanning/biased mentality just doesn’t appeal to me), or maybe because it seems that they say what they want without trying to stretch the video out. I don’t know. But I definitely do enjoy those type of videos.

  134. It isn’t KPop, but when I’m running I usually have Florence + the Machines “Breath of Life” track playing on repeat the entire time, ha. Something about that kind of really heavy, almost world building kind of music really gets me going.

  135. I actually get that, too – though it’s more ‘evening’ as opposed to night. My mum likes to get up in the morning and go running, but the few times I’ve gone with her I’ve been 10x worse than if I had gone in the evening. I guess I just have more energy then? Who knows!

  137. For me a great song for aerobics is Sign by Brown Eyed Girls, it has a fast and even beat and Miryo, along with the chorus, keep me pumped the entire time. It’s a bit relentless, though, and I’m always dead when it’s done. I love it when you guys do these lists; they are a great way to see your opinions on many different songs and you always introduce me to new music that I like. So Many Details is still on repeat. Just keep giving me this candy! ^___^

  138. I think someone mentioned it but yeah, going fast and slow is called ‘interval training’ xD Also, yep Simon – you’re totally right! Going slow with weights means that you’re using your muscles to lift/drop them as opposed to momentum. That being said, it’s even better if you’re consciously thinking of the specific muscles you’re trying to use and feeling yourself use them… If that makes sense?

    Great list! Some of my Kpop favourites are:
    1. The appropriately named ‘Run’ by MBLAQ, and from the same album ‘This Is War’
    2. A lot of B.A.P.’s more powerful stuff, like ‘Warrior’, ‘Power’ and ‘No Mercy’
    3. This is going to sound crazy but, ‘BLUE’ by Big Bang – it has a really nice ongoing beat/melody for running. The song kind of feels like it’s runnig itself. Also, ‘Ego’, ‘Still Alive’ and ‘Monster’
    4. More K-indie but Copy Machine’s ‘Rodeo’
    5. Ga in ‘Fxxk U’
    6. BlockB ‘Mental Breaker’

    1. Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’
    2. Just about anything by Anberlin – especially their ‘New Surrender’ and ‘Cities’ albums
    3. Eagle Eye Cherry ‘Save Tonight’
    4. Eels ‘Hey Man’
    5. Kid Cudi ‘Erase Me’
    6. Little Comets ‘Dancing Song’
    7. MGMT ‘Kids’
    8. Mixalis Xatzigiannis ‘Xeria Psila’ and some songs by ‘Melisses’ (all Greek)

    And yeah… Those are a few of the many! Hope you like them and sorry for the long post :)

    • Actually no, Simon was right. The thing they were doing is actually fartlek.The difference is that fartlek doesn’t have any specific time limit in which you run or walk. It’s more like, “Okay, I wanna run for a while now,” and then you run for as long as you’d like before you switch to a slower tempo, whereas intervall training is “Okay, I’m gonna sprint for 30 seconds and then slow down to a jog for 15 seconds and do that 15 times”. I hope I explained it properly haha!

    the more rap-y it is the more fuel for the fire when i lift! when i swim i just have to get a song stuck in my head since i dont have waterproof headphones and stuff. :((

  141. I recomend 2ne1’s I am the best and Go away. I am the best gives me an ego boost when I need it (the last km) and Go Away helps me release my frustration when I’m running. I would also recommend Jeajoong’s Mine for the same reason. Some other songs that I have on my list are B1A4’s Beautiful Target and Cherry Filter’s Romantic Cat and Flying Duck because they make me feel lighter when I’m running and just are really upbeat and nice to listen to when you’re in the middle of your run.

    • I find hiking, speed walking, or jogging while singing is really great for strengthening lungs (I don’t run so can’t vouch for it there). I’m very asthmatic and singing while I walk or jog has over time decreased my reliance on steroid inhalers. You don’t necessarily have to sing out loud either. Just as long as you’re breathing and using your diaphragm the same way you would be if you were actually singing. It takes working into but eventually it can be just as enjoyable as singing in the shower.

I’m a Nasty because I love your sense of humor, I have similar music tastes and I love that you guys don’t stick to boring routine videos and occasionally will shake it up a bit with something new. I know you’ve been receiving a lot of hate lately and you don’t deserve any of it. To end this little rant(?) I just want to say that I’m proud to be a Nasty and I love Eatyourkimchi and Simon, Martina, Spudgy, Meemers, Leigh and SooZee and I enjoy every video that is put out even if I have a different opinion on the content.

I think you guys are beyond great, and whenever I feel down and lonely, I come here and feed from your quirky, endless lively humor. I love that you guys never sugar coat things which, sadly, is what media does so the viewers may find it appropriate and/or good enough for their approval. I hate when things are “modified” so people would not disagree with it; I love how you guys go with the flow and stick to your strong viewpoints no matter what. I like when people are xyresic-tongued and straightforward with me (no matter how much it hurts). I may not agree with everything, but I respect them anyway because they are YOUR OPINIONS and they should be heard and respected nonetheless. You guys are the awesome, FIGHTING!

    • I like BAP and frankly I found that video freaking hilarious. But mainly as a lampshade to the fact that BAP started out bombastic in videos like Warrior then all of a sudden boom they’re crying everywhere. Granted by lampshade I’m referring to the large number of groups that anxiously look into the camera while rubbing their lips and shedding a single tear over the girl/guy love interest the whole group is mooning over. I like many of the songs, and the group may or may not have control over their concept. But I personally found it funny for pointing out the video absurdities that I’ve gotten used to over my brief time as a Kpop fan.
      Although I have to say that Kpop fans can be really scary, and I think S&M got on some of those bad sides with that particular video. I do think that fans need to lighten up though. Just because someone doesn’t like one particular direction or song for a group, and teases them, shouldn’t mean the fans need to knee-jerk into lynch mob mode.

    • Hey guise! Just adding my two cents about your KMMs, I’m preferring these themed videos I just don’t take as much notice of the kpop charts anymore.

Thanks anyway for trying to find that balance between entertainment and music review, you do a good job and I LOOOVE your other videos peace and love Caz xo

      But it frustrates me to see people trying to tell you what to do. Whenever you do something a bit different we see a backlash. People really don’t like change, huh.
      As I’m quite a casual K-pop fan and have no issue with swearing or anything, I’ve never had a problem with you guys since I found you 3 years ago. You’d never do anything mean – spirited and my personal ethos is ”don’t take offence unless offence was intended”. I’m not bothered about who you review or what you talk about because whatever you do I have faith that it’s going to make me laugh xD
      So yeah, just do what you want to do. As long as making videos is still fun for you then we are going to enjoy it too ^^

    • That also comes down a matter of perception. Simon and Martina learned from that and are unlikely to make a joke like that again. Unfortunately that will be continually listed as a reason why they are “bad” people and something that people will continue to dredge up in the future. If someone’s perception is that EYK is so bad, of course that just confirms everything for them – they will focus on that and block out anything positive. If someone’s perception is more middle ground they might view it as a slip up but move on from it, and for many people they recognise it in the context it is in and that it’s not meant to offend and find it funny.

      It’s not really fair to assume that idols get upset about the same things as fan girls and BAP don’t need people to be outraged in their behalf. The cultural differences between an international fan girl and a Korean man in an idol group are probably vast, as sad as that must be for some people. Also, my perspective as not being a BAP fan girl is very different. My perspective is coloured by being in Korea, married to a Korean man and seeing how he reacted to that Music Monday. Now he is no idol but he is a bit closer culturally. He loved that Music Monday. He laughed so hard. He likes BAP as well, but he thought it was very funny. So for him that kind of name calling was very funny because he saw it as just a joke and not something he assumed people would get upset about.

      3 years ago
      • “So immediately assuming that I’m a butt-hurt, inconsolable fan-girl is a little bit offending”…. you probably shouldn’t assume that I assumed that ;)

        Also in the bigger scheme of things I don’t really think they lost that many followers. Places like tumblr and forums make it seem like it’s so much more than it really is. EYK is gaining more fans than they are losing, however they have noted that this joke didn’t go over well and are unlikely to say that again. Even though a lot of people got that it being offensive words was actually the joke in itself – not that it’s what they really thought of BAP, EYK recognised after that not everyone appreciates that type of humour.

        And as for interviewing BAP again. Can’t really make assumptions on that either and will just have to wait and see.

        3 years ago
        • Yes that referred to international fan girls, not that I was assuming that you were one, but I think it’s fair to say the majority of those upset were international fan girls considering that’s the majority of the Kpop international audience. YouTube comments easily fall into the same category as Tumblr and forums, which is why EYK write more in their blog posts here because it’s a group of people willing to discuss things, rather than just raging. While some YouTube comments can be well thought out and reasonable, it’s unfortunate that YouTube comments on any channel can be quite extreme and I know from experience aren’t a reasonable representation of the larger community. I think it’s pretty fair to say EYK have learnt from this, have noted it, and have moved on. As someone else has pointed out, all Music Mondays since haven’t had that type of joke.

        • I don’t think you are attacking them at all. You’ve already said you are a fan and you just didn’t like that joke.

    • I get you, but it wasn’t just the name calling because that would be just a bit silly to get upset only because of that. For me, it wasn’t really wrong, but it was uncomfortable, for many reasons I listed in a Youtube comment (that might be lost in the chaos over there). It had not that much to do with the “profanity”, but the content of it… Anyway, it would be too long to talk about it yet again and I feel like everything has already been said on this particular vid. We should all just let it rest in peace and move on.

    • And that’s your opinion; I personally found it hilarious because they weren’t being serious about it, it was obviously a joke referencing the fact that they were all crying in the music video.

      3 years ago
      • No offense taken, different strokes for different folks. And believe me, I don’t follow EYK blindly and ignore all their flaws. I’ve written several messages and comments in the past critiquing things I don’t agree with about their videos/blog posts, and I don’t do that for a lot of youtubers I follow because I don’t care that much about a lot of other youtube channels. I even wrote a message prior to the BTOB/B.A.P/BTS video they did, saying that since they had been on hiatus for so long that we Nasties deserved a video reviewing more than one group. Now I’m not saying my comment was the reason they made the video or even that they definitely saw it, but it’s possible that they did and it’s possible that that comment was one of the reasons they made the BTOB/B.A.P/BTS video. A lot of people say they take none of their fans’ comments and requests into consideration, but I saw that video as a sign that they definitely did. But back to the original reason for my reply; I definitely have a darker taste for humor than most people, I know this. And there is a lot of dark humor between the members of my family (for instance, “bitch” is a word used pretty commonly in my house, and it definitely isn’t the worst word, but it isn’t used with malice). So when I saw EYK make that joke, I didn’t think “Oh my God, how disgraceful, how can they say something so horrible about B.A.P, a group who has worked so hard in the past! And B.A.P will definitely be hurt by this!” (I really hope you don’t take offense to that part, those are actual things I’ve heard from B.A.P fans in relation to the B/B/B video), I simply laughed and continued watching the video. Bottom line is, none of us actually know 1) if B.A.P even watched the video, and 2) if they did watch the video if any of them were hurt by what Simon and Martina said. I would think that with BYG being so into hip-hop that he has heard much darker things, and for all we know he could’ve seen the video and laughed his ass off. If he was offended, then he should bring that to EYK so they can apologize because it was obvious to a lot of people that that segment was never intended to be offensive. It’s comedy, it’s a joke. I think a lot of people take EYK way too seriously sometimes, more seriously than they take themselves.

        TL;DR- I am certainly not asking you to change your values and what not, but I didn’t view Simon and Martina’s comment in the same way you did, and there’s no way of knowing how B.A.P viewed it, if they watched the video at all.

      • And isn’t that just the kicker? No one knows what BAP thinks, if they even think anything about it at all (which is the more likely scenario), but other people will always try to twist this sort of thing to suit their own agenda. If you personally were offended, then just say it instead of trying to use another (in this case BYG) as some sort of mouthpiece. No one has the right to say what other people should or shouldn’t be offended by.

        • I was surprised to see this comment in my inbox after so long. Here’s the thing, I simply don’t agree with what you’re saying. Not a single part of it. Though I do understand [i]what[/i] you’re saying. I’m pretty sure that goes both ways, which is totally ok. I’m not here to convince you, and I don’t really care to, but I will explain my perspective. I personally find it more offensive to take the term and immediately associate it as an attack on woman, which it absolutely wasn’t, unless you yourself associate woman with the way BAP was acting in the video (and I’m sure someone out there reading this is going to be throw into a fuss over how I must be self-hating or have no sense of misogyny or some shit just because I don’t make that association). Just like other insults there are times when these terms are specifically used to humiliate and put down woman, but this really wasn’t one of those times, not to mention it’s tongue in cheek usage. You’re trying to argue the term out of context, which you simply cannot do because there most certainly was a context, and that, if anything, makes your argument (for lack of better word) less creditable in my eyes.

        • I already said that I understand what you’re saying. I’m perfectly aware what the words mean so I’m not sure why you decided to reply to me with a breakdown definition of them and ignore what I’ve already said about the context of the perceived insult. This is going to be my last reply here, because I don’t think you care about how it was used, or to even discuss it, and your issue is just with the general words themselves, which has no relevance to the topic at hand other than the fact that they existed at that particular moment in time.

    • The whole “media feed youstuff that you eat like a brainless zombie”… *sighs* I feel slightly bad for saying this, but as a media and communcation student, that is sadly true in many ways.

      Time for a quick history reviiew, in media

      Media in general, such as newspapers mainly, but also radio, once believed they were the almighty source of information, and thus they treated themselves kind of like it.

      By the 50’s someone came up with the conclusion though that media was far from mighty, and people actually had an opinion, thus suddenly they weren’t as important.

      This changed once more during the 80’s, and now the compromise is: yes, they have power, but not full power over people’s brains.

      Thus, the media masterminds kind of know today that media does shape a lot of how we think, but not everything because we do have brains of our own. Do they try to trick us, absolutely yes… which is why it has been a lifechanging horror to actually study the subject, as I cannot even look at headlines without wondering: “hmm… what do they mean with this?”

        Also: fartleking is a thing… for real. I can't believe it either (x_x'')

      • to be extremely honest, i DO notice the slight change/increase in swearing and vulgarity used (or censored) in EYK’s videos. i remember they started out really family friendly, really nice and even if they wanted to express their disappointment on KMMs on the songs reviewed, they would use really neutral terms and “play it safe”. but the recent videos are getting not so family friendly, and its noticeable they had to bleep out more words these days in their videos.

        Still, i am an adult and i dont really mind if they make fun of my fave bands and what not. on the other hand, others could be right about the issue where they mentioned “bitch ass pussies”. if i were a fan of BAP, i probably would laugh it off, because i would find it funny. i mean after watching so many of their videos, i kinda understand their sense of humor and the jokes that they tend to say. but the kpop idols themselves might not feel the same way like i do.

        i guess some fans see themselves to be the knights of shining armor for their idols and fight wars for them and thus start a “fight” with EYK to protect their idols. to be honest, no matter how hardcore a fan you are, you will not fully understand how your idol feels unless you are extremely close to them on a personal level. so there’s no need to fight wars for them. if BAP is pissed off by their comments, they could issue a warning to EYK, or “ban” them from talking abt BAP ever in their videos.

        if you hate kimchi so much, just dont eat it. you dont have to pull out a sledge hammer and pound it.

      • Erm… sorry but I find that thought kind of ridiculous. It’s nothing personal to you nor anyone, but in financing their studio and launching their business via crowd funding they did not, in any way, put themselves nor their business up for sale. The contributions are called donations after all. And any perks you get by contributing are just that: perks, that they chose to offer as thanks. By your logic, would it be ok to ask for a slice of an NGO to which you donated? After all, it’d be because of you that they’d still be operating right? After their campaign was over and the promised perks sent out, they did not contractually owe you nor anyone a thing.

      • They probably just thought of it as their loving fans’ support in helping them grow. Not “buying” them. Just giving them a push to make them better. Even if I had donated, I would have NEVER expected them to think that I own a piece of them. That’s just wrong. They are who they are, and they do what they want for THEIR videos. If someone doesn’t like it anymore, well then they can just stop watching and find something else to do.

      • Not only that if was a bank loan ..the bank would want the money back with interest. Stock Holders would want their pint of blood as well. I have said this I am not hater, I have been a fan for years. I am just confused lately…..

      • This reminds me of a conversation I had with a friend, from when I was studying Asia. She told me a lot of the newer students that had appeared were mainly kpop or jpop fans, and therefore took the subject generally believing they would get the “paradise” aspect… sad to say for them, this wasn’t really true, and some of them started badmouthing the subject.

        Some kpop fans are just that, in their own world. I am sure that world must be awesome, but personally I prefer living in the real world, and not something make believe. Which is probably why I like EYK so much, as I get to see both sides, both good and bad. I’ve been to Korea myself, so some of the things talked about during KMM, FAPFAP, WANKS aren’t completely foreign to me. Yet, as an adoptive Korea, I am really happy that I can, through the magics of Internet that wasn’t this developed when I was a teen, get to see Korea today. Beats any early 90’s books.

        And I should stop writing comments, it’s nearly midnight, and I have studies to do tomorrow as well… real life yes… *sighs*

      • This is a really insightful comment and I fully agree. I mean, of COURSE fans should be able to feel that they can express their opinions, whether positive or negative and S&M should be able to take this on board because that’s how they can improve and continue to grow EYK in a positive manner (and I think they do). Otherwise, they’d probably just end up plateauing for lack of fresh content/improvement.

        But unfortunately, I guess that some people think that because this is the Internet or something they can say whatever they want. It seems that many people forget that S&M are people too, not just ‘celebrities’ or whatever, so they say some truly nasty things, which is just wrong. Plain wrong. And all I’d like to say to them is: Guys, HI HELLO HEY! This might come as a surprise, but *GASP* S&M are not evil masterminds! I’m not going to hate on you for disliking EYK – it’s within your every right. But please think about the things you say. If it’s not something you would say to their faces, then is it really alright to post it for everyone to see? Would you do that to a friend, or is it just because they’re some “strangers” on a totally different continent?

        Really, some things they come up with are ludicrous and I can only say I’m truly sorry to S&M for having to put up with it. Yet, unfortunately, that’s what happens when your fanbase grows – you gain some fans, you gain some haters. You guys, please just concentrate on the people that love you :) I think that one of the saddest parts of it all is that some people who make GENUINELY good comments/constructive criticism get buried under hateful ones. I’ve seen some absolutely genius ideas, but they’re just never going to come to light because people are too busy taking out their anger on some random couple on the Internet.

  157. Cool songs. I like the energetic songs that make you want to move or just do move until the songs beat has finished. You could also try some remixes that are upbeat.
    Thanks guys!

  159. Martina her list is closer to my playlist. When working out I am full out blasting metal, hardcore, punk and rock. For some reason hip hop, dance and such that are usually played in gyms because you can work out on the beat don’t do it for me. So I am always sure to bring my own playlist.
