YES! Time to give in to our Junsu bias with this week’s Kpop Music Monday on Xia Junsu’s “Uncommitted”! Haven’t seen it yet? Check it out here:

 

For starters: damn! We totally forgot to mention something in this week’s video. We mentioned it on Twitter before, but not really in a video. Hey guise: know how we’re so often called YG biased? Why’s no one ever calling us Xia biased? Have we ever said anything bad about him? I mean, Ayy Girl was a horribly embarrassing video, but we still loved it, and it became one of our longest running jokes ever. Intoxication we never even reviewed, but you’ve heard our cheesy rendition of it everywhere. I’d say we’ve shown our bias to Junsu more than all of the YG artists combined. We’re very PSY biased as well, FYI: would love to review more of his videos.

Also, I hope people kind of understand us with our English ratings in songs. We’re not trying to make fun of people mispronouncing English. We just don’t like it when labels think that throwing in silly English is a good idea in songs, and we hope that, by bringing it to their attention, they might stop, or at least get someone who’s fluent in the language look it over. Junsu’s “Uncommitted” doesn’t fit in that category, and we wouldn’t feel right poking fun at it, you know? It’s an entirely English song, trying to convey thoughts, emotions, a story. It’s more a North American song than it is a Kpop song, so…I hope that sounds fair, on our behalf.

Otherwise, we forgot to mention a couple of things in our review. For starters, not a fan of the Automatic guy popping up in the song from time to time. We should have had a Mordney Present joke in there: come on Producers! Stop including your names in songs. It’s lame. Except if it’s JYP. That…has become something special. JAY WHY PEE!

Also, we never really discussed the concept of the song. Long story short, from what we understand, the song is basically Junsu’s girlfriend dumping him because Junsu has a history of being unfaithful to women. Kinda lame, if you ask me. Sure, it’s an interesting concept, but the girl’s dumb. SORRY! And we’re not saying that because we’re Junsu biased and she’s stupid for dumping Junsu (WHO WOULD DUMP JUNSU?!?!). We just don’t agree that how you act in your previous relationships dictates how you’ll act in future relationships, and to cut it off is to miss out on a potentially great relationship. One that involves holding hands and spinning around the room! Well, hopefully none of that.

Anyhow, we – with our bias for Junsu and our hatred of ballads – like this song quite a lot, so pick it up on iTunes and YesAsia if you like it as well. And, as always, we’ve got some bloopers, mainly including happy circle dances with animals. And we announce the Super Junior “Spy” album giveaway winner, so check it out to see if you won!

    “We’re very PSY biased as well, FYI: would love to review more of his videos.”

    If only we knew…

  2. Lololololol…Junsu touching Junsu! (“I’m too sexy for my shirt…” moment). Win!

  3. Tassia Lopes

    owww, Memers was still a girl here!!! Good days!!

  4. As someone who is very comfortably and admittedly YG biased, I don’t think you guys are YG biased. ^^

  5. Puja Sheth

    Did anyone notice at 2:28 (in the MV) that he’s wearing a ring on his left ring finger… haha totally matches with the song. no wonder the girl thinks he’ll be uncommitted. he has a ring on his wedding finger.

  6. Emily Howell

    This song is sheer amazingness. I had kinda just passed over it when it came out and didn’t give it much thought because it seemed not really my taste but I was SOOOOOOOO wrong. I am loving it. I am usually more into the styles you would associate with indie bands, so I was surprised by how much I love k-pop. Thats especially true about this song. In the past I HATED music like this. The vocals, the sound, the repetition. This song unlike the others Just has something to it that makes it stick in your head. Some kinda musical crack or subliminal messages lol.

  7. prettyhaee

    I lost it at the dancing banana. I just…I just can’t. LOL.

  8. THIS VIDEO MAKES ME SO HAPPY. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. <3

  9. OMG! Before whenever I watch Uncommitted MV, I would get so freakin attracted to it coz’ its so sexy. But viewing this review, I can’t help but laugh my heart out whenever it came across to junsu touching himself and the twirling around. Godddamn so funny XD 

  10. Alison Brown

    I think you should review Nu’Est’s Face for next week, even though it’s not a new song… It’s a pretty song and really has a deep message. (You should all go watch it. And, in case you are wondering, the guy behind the locker door is Baekho, the guy sitting down next reading a book is Minhyun, the guy with blonde hair is Ren, the guy with pink spiky gloves is JR and the other one is Aron.)
    Or review their new song, Action!

  11. I like Big Bang. For some reason they are the only band I can get into here in Korea. 

  12. Junsu! To make him win anything in any charts!! it is kinda upsetting how JYJ members (even as solos) are isolated from tv shows and music charts in Korea

  13. i say junsu for the video match up :D

  14. Oh I love this review, its a nice song.
    and thanks for pointing out Junsu feeling himself up!! lmao

  15. Re: Junsu’s English, I totally agree that it’s commendable when KPop stars really try to express themselves in another language.  I totally applaud your approach.

  16. congratulation junsu for your mv!
    but can to be better!

  17. Pathryn34

    Every once in a while, a website will show all the gifts given by fans to different members of JYJ. If I ever see that Junsu is give a big bunch of bananas I will laugh so hard. Or pickles. Pickles would do it too. If both, I know they watch eat your kimchi.

  18. I always love the skits- and of course Simon’s dancing! If you guys haven’t seen 
    Kim HyunJoong’s song break down you must!
    If not for the sole purpose of hopefully one day seeing Simon do the dance; it is really so perfect. The skits you guys come up with are awesome and always make me laugh! Awesome job. By the way, never let anyone tell you guys you aren’t awesome; you are! Thanks to you, when my friend and I are bored in science we show our hands and mouth SEXXXXY HANDSSS. Thank you Simon and Martina, for making chemistry interesting.

  19. lumierenoire

    A bit irrelevant, but still important. I hope you guys are staying safe from the Bolaven typhoon!

  20. I laughed SO hard at this! I’m so happy it got reviewed.
    And, of course, my vote goes for he-who-rubs-his-banana’s Uncommitted. ^^

  21. Last year for Labor Day Monday they did a special one year anniversary episode. I wonder if GD will get the boot til nextest next week? If it’s a special Labor Day Monday Two year anniversary I hope JYP’s You’re the one gets reviewed.

  22. puahahahaha…. i loved it when they said something about JYJ’s current status in Korea and the sasaeng fans.. XD

  23. Vanessa Heng

    I love you guys so much for being supportive of JYJ. You have no idea how thankful JYJ fans are for that. 

  24. candysky

    i love this i love everythiiiiing i am so incoherenttt 
    :3 

  25. laura guerra

    I vote for Junsu’s uncommitted!!

  26. It’s still number one on the charts, LAWL.

  27. cate212

    LOL as soon as you said lens flares I knew the other option was going to be Jay Park! haha so much lens flare! My vote goes to Jay!

  28. suzu4381

    hey guise great review as always Question: don’t you guys make fun of Junsu’s english all the time in intoxication??? Come on! kiss and touch me rub my bananas? touch me like an arpereggio?? He’s singing that song in English too….hmmm I agree that he deserves 10 points for trying GO JUNSU GO!

  29. Nurul Syaza

    But Martina.. I did remember you reviewing on Intoxication before~!! Thats how i understand your banana joke. Ahh and the song’s in JAPANESE too xD

  30. So proud of Junsu! Such an improvement. LOL at the The Touching Junsu! 
    I think it’s rather decent than Justin Beiber’s ‘as long as you love me’. Beiber’s just at the tip of the adult age but already made an mv with a lot of kissing and touching here and there. Junsu is already 26 and he can’t even kiss the hot girl cheeks. Maybe he can only do that on Yoochun LOL. Anyways great review. It cracked me up :D

  31. mls

    I vote for Xia’s Uncommitted. The story is less choppy.

  32. I like the fact that Clubbing Junsu has a Mordney accent.

  33. blurblurwhite

    My vote goes to Junsu :D

  34. I vote for Jay Park – Star… I don’t think Junsu’s Uncommited lens flare is annoying~ It’s good enough. 

    Hey~ can eatyourkimchi make interview with JYJ maybe someday? 

  35. My vote goes Junsu & His Bannana!! Lol “Uncommitted”

  36. Duhhh…………… Junsu…..
    And love the review

  37. I vote for Junsu’s Uncommitted for the showdown!! 

  38. crystal iam

    ‘so they link hands and twirl around the room?’ u guys cracked me up!
    totally made my day lol

  39.  I honestly didn’t care about the song when it first came out, but was excited to know how you would ruin it. XD

  40. Its hard to please every one with a different bias, in the same Kpop crowd at that.. and it is truly brave of simonandmartina to actually declare their bias so openly when they are doing a MV reviewing kind of show. I take my hats off to them. 
    I never got disappointed by you guys ruining my fave’s (xia’s) videos for me! LOL. Even my older sister, who is SO not into Kpop, would watch every episode of simonandmartina’s show and ROFL, grinning like an idiot. I love how she is indirectly exposed to Kpop and understands me and my younger sis better because of simonandmartina, Thank you, you guise!
    Ps: Just want to say that, even if xia had lost the review to either one, say GD or even Nuest, I wouldn’t be half as pissed. This IS simonandmartina’s show! We should respect them, shut up and enjoy whatever they have in store for us! *And I’m not saying it just because my fave gets the review everytime* Oops :p I admit it, I was just leaving things to fate at the last minute, but cassies are still the best!
    Last but not least, thank you simonandmartina, for supporting Junsu!

  41. I could barely see Junsu :P So I pick him.

  42. jazminjhnsn
    jazminjhnsn

    As I watch this Simon and I have the same shirt on lol

  43. As I watch this Simon and I have the same shirt on kekekekee

  44.  Haha, this was one of the funniest Kpop Mondays, as for me :) “And then look at Junsu…touching Junsu”
     Junsu is going to perform in NYC this Thursday! SO EXCITED!

  45. Face it. Yg gives you more things to praise about. Sm… Not so much in the mv department. Yet every suju mv made it to kmm. There’s your trolls right there yg and sm fans are polar opposites lol. Every article any little thing can spark a fan war between companies trollol

  46. KuraiYoru

    Yesterday I heard Junsu’s song in a sulchib in hongdae~! So they do play it in korea kk : D

    • syirafm

       are you live in korea??

      • KuraiYoru

        Yes, currently I’m an exchange student here for half a year ^^

        • syirafm

          can i ask about JYJ treatment and condition in Korea..is it that bad??are people still support them??are they still popular in Korea cause internationally they are..

        • KuraiYoru

          Well when I was here last year JYJ was a Face of Nature Republic company, but right now they’re not. Yesterday was the first time I heard any song of JYJ, i believe it’s because they don’t do any promotion now. Well You can’t see them in TV, however they Cds are sold normaly in stores ( I even saw their singnatures in one of the cd shop)
          My korean firends like them and Junsu is considered one of the best vocalist in korea, so I thnik if SM didn’t blocked them they would be everywhere i think

        • syirafm

          owh..i’m so angry and stress cause all the blocking..but i think jyj felt worse..is just unfair..hmm hope all gerring better ..just now i see junsu starring in rookie mv..hope this is a good sign..hehe..

  47. AWESOMENESS on the lappy screen! I love how you can be Junsu biased and GD biased all at the same time…ooooooh you so sneaky!

  48. Phelinia

    Junsu for the really distracting camera flares. Nice song but it was hard to focus on the video.

    Swing dancing with Meemersworth! And Meemersworth going after Simon’s ankles while swinging with Spudgy.

  49. UMMM out of curiosity who does the captions? I am watching this with the English captions on and about falling out laughing, I don’t think they are matching…Unless Martin is really saying “and mom outbreak play to be scared armistead” at 0:47 mark. If she is really saying that then its time for hearing aids….

  50. simon do you have a brother named Shayne? 

  51. Velvetblue Veille

    I feel glad that you don’t like the thick man’s voice popping up in the song from time to time. We have same idea S&M. Or did u read my comment about it before? lol If u want more Mordney Present, Baekho has it for sure. *cough*still promoting*cough* 

    Vote for Junsu! Too much flare on Jay Park’s video. I can’t stand it at all. 

    Note: When I clicked Xia Junsu – Uncommitted: KMM on ur front page, I just realized the color changes. Is it a hot pink? :P

  52. Junsu obviously <3 im happy you guys got to do this song, i voted for it, even though i also wanted Nu'est but oh well. Im still happy <3 

  53. I vote for Junsu’s deliciously over lensflared MV – loved this review and can’t wait to actually see him perform – right in front of me – in NY- this Thursday!!  O_O and also XD

  54. They have a photo of G-Dragon’s “One of a Kind” on the laptop in this Music Monday. Kyaahhh!

  55. Junsu’s English was fantastic. The entire song was legit. I appreciate his effort since he has SO many English speaking fans. The video was a little senseless, but I love the overall feeling. I liked that he was with girls, both Asian and not. He’s a very open Junsu. I appreciate. =D

    Of course I vote for Junsu’s overly flared vid. I support Junsu as my very favorite kpop star and JYJ as my favorite band. They receive such unfair treatment from being blocked and crazypants fans, I really hope they can endure and overcome the nonsense. 

    BTW, Junsu is too sexy. It’s like over the top with the hips and the faces and the gender bending and the American girls and dancers. He’s edgy and artistic and too sexy.

  56. irritablevowel

    I love how in the EYK world, Junsu sounds like he’s from Europe.  It’s like an ongoing joke my brother has, where the only accent he can imitate is Italian, so if he imitates a famous person with any kind of accent, he makes them Italian.  It’s ridiculously funny when he’s imitating someone from an English speaking country, like Russell Crowe.  

  57. wait, why was Junsu or jyj banned from so many shows in Korea?

  58. fuuko4869

     Oh right, I loved the Martina VS Hand scene (including the bloopers bit).
    Also, Spudgy’s ‘Don’t take it in the but!!!’ reminds me of how you said Spudgy has delicious smelling junk for some reason? xD

    Oh I could go on and on about how much I loved all the parts in this review. Usually there’s always gonna be a few ‘meh’ parts for me, but I loved everything this week!!! Everything!!! xD

    • syirafm

       yah.. i really impress with junsu voice in that epic battle..even he got pronunciation problem a bit..haha..i also like taeyang soft voice..suitable for that song..i love the two of them..is not a battle for me but a wonderful perfect performance..

  59. raraCassie

    OMG Simon and Martina your KKM Junsu’s edition really made my day.. XDDDD
    and ofcourse my vote goes to my lovely Junsu..

  60. fuuko4869

    Martina, you looked sooooo pretty in the club scene!!! >_<

    Oh that's right, the other day someone on the Junsu page said she had a lesbian crush on you, even more than her husband Jaejoong. I think I'll be jumping on the bandwagon :p

    About the review – I thought this was one of the best I've seen in a long time. Just from the fact that you didn't go on for too long covering any one aspect in particular, and it was a good balance of serious reviewing vs tasteful jokes, which were all really funny, in my books. Not to mention a lot of your random observations weren't even picked up in the Cassie's attempts to exhaustively analyse the MV. LOL @ the pickpocket, and Junsu touching himself xD

    Also, it's kinda cool that you didn't make fun of the English. But please continue to make fun of the random Engrish in kpop songs, because after all, they are pretty ridiculous.

    What else was I going to say…OH RIGHT. You said you never reviewed Intoxication. YOU DID. You even specially chose it for your special One Year Anniversary edition. And not only was it Japanese, it didn't even have an official full MV. If that doesn't scream bias, I don't know what does. Y U SO JUNSU BIAS??!! xD

    Hahahahahaha love ya. ;)

  61. Sachimi

    Martina’s possessed hand reminded me of this – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVF-ugA2Atk and a little of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6V2ylVXLgcQ :D

    Also, I love this song.

  62. I vote for Uncommitted’s solar lens flare!

  63. Yes! Junsu bias! As he is mine and I get to watch his solo concert on Sunday (I love living in Los Angeles), I am so excited you reviewed this. It doesn’t sound like a typical ballad at all and he REALLY has improved English-wise. Going to judge more when I hear it live. Also, Junsu really can’t cook. Just, no. *laughs* At least not on public television so yeah, that plan would have backfired, most likely. 

  64. I’m so happy that i voted my ass off. This was a great Music Monday. Oh lord, you wonderfully ruined the song for me you guys x] I never even noticed Junsu touching himself. Once you mentioned it the first thing i thought of was Yoochun “I Just Wanna Touch Myself”. LOL. THAN OMFG THE BANANA GIF. SUCH A WINNER. I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH. XD

  65. you’re so biased and I love it!! .. I really love and admire the fact that you want to support jyj since they’re blocked everywhere ..  I laughed at the twirling part xD .. I really love xia’s solo mvs and work so far , hope they’ll get unbanned somehow coz they’re really great ..

    & my vote goes to xia’s uncommitted

  66. who would dump junsu? he’s junsu. he has like the dating equivalent to diplomatic immunity.

  67. OMG! You’re so Junsu biased! x)

  68. I miss the night of fun coz im so tired at work yet Kpop music monday made my day. Wee More power guys i really love how you do in this show :)

  69. Pathryn34

    Definitely voting Junsu. I have been doing it so much, it is a habit now. Plus, wow the lens flare is bad.

    I think that the reason she all of a sudden decided to leave is because he was doing things that were red flags that he was a player. You know, the kind where guys don’t realize they are wrong. She probably dated a Chunji before, so was more sensitive to those kinds of things. I also like that unlike in “No More Perfume” this shows there is a consequence for being a player.

    I loved this. Thank you for supporting Jun Su and JYJ.

  70. I listen to this song over,and over,and over….and over again..And I like it more and more. OMG guys because of you I’m totally Junsu biased as well…:))I’m gonna be KPOP biased by the end of the month

  71. Imma vote for Junsu. :) I love Jay Park, but I wasn’t really a fan of that song.

  72. NaToTheWak

    Guise, one year ago you made a special KMM to review only awesome videos that you choose. Will you do the same this year and review a video that you really wanted to talk about but that didn’t get voted enough? Like Tablo’s Bad, Facebook Official, JYP’s solos… Or do you think you’ll get FIRE MURDERED by fans if you don’t review their oppa(s)?

  73. I honestly voted for Junsu because I love how Simon portrays him, does he said lassagnia when Martina was talking to him?

  74. aya! at least someone will support JYJ!!
    i totally love junsu, and this songshows how much he grew as a singer. and how much his english has improved. a lot, may i say.

    the worst flares are on junsu’s video… at the JP MV, you can still see stuff, but uncommitted has this grayish color and the flares just make it soooo much harder to see

  75. thisisjustforfunval
    thisisjustforfunval

    OMG I never noticed Junsu touching himself. I almost complete lost it laughing…maybe I should stop watching KMM while I’m at work.

  76. at first i thought this video was not meant to be reviewed by you guys. i couldn’t even find any bizzare things in it and of course, not even a laughable scene. because, you know, the song and video are too perfect. :)

    then i watched your review. i laughed a lot :Di just love how you noticed every little thing in this video, dropped some opinions to that, and made fun of them as well. so obvious, you guys never fail to crack me up!!

    guess what? i’m starting to believe this: the more you ruined the song/video, the more i like it. so, please ruin my favorite awesome video, GD’s One of a kind for next kmm :)

  77. hikaru1412

    My favorite part of this has got to be the Ballad Hater Hand. HILARIOUS! I vote for Jay Park’s Star, I just enjoyed it a bit more even though I love JYJ/DB5K. NU’EST will win someday!!! :D

  78. Omagad, This slap must have hurt … like a lot …

  79. “don’t take it in the butt ” 2x  –> best blooper part

    –back to the MV . . . the editing was really too much . . .I could barely see his face -.-

    Thank you for another  ” Music Mondays “video Simon&Martina ^-^=V

  80. FriedChickenOnew
    FriedChickenOnew

    was I the only one looking forward to see spudgy attack junsu photo for stealing his hair…

  81. Don’t take it in the butt!!
    …I’m not sure that will ever get old. However, the more I listen to SuJu’s Spy, the more it starting to sound like “Don’t stick it in the butt!” instead, hahaha

    I vote for Jay Park’s Star – at least it was colorful… although honestly, it’s almost a tie for me between the 2…

  82. omg “if you wanna pretty fantastic elastic, don’t take it in the butt, joom joom my heart like a locket” would make the best t-shirt ever! i can already see my friends trying to make since of it and failing.

  83. Lexi_Lee

    I guess I don’t pay as good attention to the videos as you guys, because I never see these things XD 
    Vote for Junsu because Maegyo Jay is awkward. Sorry, Jay, I love you, but aegyo just isn’t your thing…

  84. You say that Junsu and his girlfriend should have cooked together… but what if it was’nt that easy? Maybe it was like that:

    GF: Hey honey, maybe we’ll cook something!
    Junsu: Sure!
    GF: *opens the fridge* Want some pickles? Or some… pickles? Or… oh, these are gherkins! No, really. Don’t you have anything else to eat?
    Junsu: You can use my bananas… 
    GF: …….. Let’s just spin around the room.

  85. JulesCTKD

    “… basically Junsu’s girlfriend dumping him because Junsu has a history of being unfaithful to women. Kinda lame, if you ask me.”

    My impression of the song/music video is that he’s a serial cheater, which is why she doesn’t think he’ll be able to stay faithful; and I have to admit that I’d be hesitant to trust a guy with that sort of past, too. Annnnd then there’s the fact that towards the end of the song, he says (sings?) that she could be right about him, which doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in his ability to commit.

    •  I agree. This was one of those times in songs where I side with the one who left, as opposed to the one who WAS left (Junsu). Sounds to me like he’s pretty obviously a player, not that he was one in past relationships alone.
      I interpreted it something along the lines of: through getting to know Junsu as they dated, the girl started to see things in his behavior and lifestyle that were quite obviously player-type traits. For example, with the way they flashed between Junsu and the girl to Junsu partying at the club, it makes me think he’s being portrayed as a party animal, not to mention an insatiable flirt (among other things). They just make him come across as an all-around sleezy guy in the video; very arrogant and self-centered. He also has a facet that seems like he sort of lost, trying to find something to satisfy himself, hence why he fools around and parties so much. He seems to have some genuine feelings for the girl, but it’s just not enough for him to realize that she’s more important than living in the fast lane.

      Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a beautiful song, and I think it’s done quite well, music video and all. In fact, I’d say it being done so well is probably the whole reason why I DON’T like the song. XD As paradoxical as that sounds, I really dislike Junsu in this video because of the character he portrays. He comes across as one of the people types I really, really dislike, which I think was the whole point. It just goes to show that Junsu is a talented actor once again.
      This is all just my opinion though. *shrugs*

      Okay, done babbling now. XD

  86. Ludmila Svistunova

    Thank you for the video, guys! I
    Hope GD remains on the top of the chart, that video sure deserves a review. Also, his yellow hair reminds me of Pikachu (GD-mon? Drangonchu? Poke-Dragon?..I’m confused, and it’s all I can think about right now). 

  87. I like Junsu, also JYJ xD.. Too bad that we don’t see them so often .

  88. omg dancing banana w/ Junsu’s face= win!

  89. one_nee

    actually it was 2 things i dislike from the MV are the half size (keep trying watched in in full size before realized it wont make it bigger), and also the the greyish lighting (?)  i just wish the screen would be bigger n the lighting would be a little bit clearer n lighter (?) esp since i really thought Junsu looked so damn hot n gorgeus in here =)

    and gosh, i love love love the ‘oh Junsu’ touchy scene lol.. well Junsu indeed know he is sexier than the girl, lol. thx for this review guys. and also for your word of support for Junsu n JYJ. as JYJ fan, it indeed heartwarming =)

  90. Deborah

    For the giveways, do you guys actually pick out a comment that you like or is it random draw?

  91. michelle gosse

    ooh epic lense flare show down. Gotta vote junsu

  92. Thanks for an awesome review. It made my day! Keep it up! ^^ I wish Nu’est finally gets a review though but it looks like it will be GD next week.

  93. zemasrunner

    such a funny review! you guys are awesome! you always notice things i would never even see! and after your reviews i would go like HOW DIDN’T I SEE THIS!
    thanks this was so fun to watch!
    p.s.: I vote for Junsu!

  94. sophiawantsacookie

    The add on the side of this page is of Junsu’s English album. DID YOU GUYS DO THAT ON PURPOSE?lol

  95. LaLa_73

    Why is he banned in some programs? Kinda lost here.

    • Long story short, he & his group JYJ left their old company (SM) through contract issues.  The banning…SM is really powerful and has the power to do that.

    • lunibelle

      I think it’s because of the DBSK/TVXQ scandal. It’s ridiculous. So it’s not only him, but the others, too, except for the remaining two members of DBSK/TVXQ who are still under SM Entertainment.

    • Fanny1989

      Long story short…Junsu (along with his two fellow JYJ members) used to be part of a group called TVXQ, who is under SM entertainment. 

      JYJ left SM because of unfair contract lengths and pay, and for the past three years have been in court with them. 

      The courts ruled that JYJ were free from SM’s contracts and allowed to do activities, but SM blocks them from coming on any variety or music shows (they did the same for the band JTL, who were formed from three former H.O.T members that also left SM). 
      JYJ can be on dramas (Jaejoong and Yoochun have both won various acting awards for their dramas and Junsu did a cameo and sang the main OST track for the drama ‘Scent of a Woman’) because SM doesn’t really have any power over that sector, but when it comes to variety or music shows, JYJ doesn’t have a chance. 

      Basically because Junsu and JYJ left SM, they are now blocked by the company and can’t appear on TV variety/music programs or even hold many full scale concerts in Korea.

    yeah support JYJ!!! i hate those stupid disgusting sasaengs!!!

    just wanna say something about the english thrown into songs thing!!! yeah i agree sometimes it is SO totally dumb in songs and don’t make sense at all! SM has like the weirdest nonsensical English ever!! (….but i kinda like it cos it’s fun to say randomly…)
    but the pronouncing it part to me is sort of a different story! and i’m saying this from my point of view as an asian! i’ve been born and raised in England and i obviously speak english perfectly well….but then when i’m talking in my own language (bengali) sometimes i use an english word in a sentence….but i pronounce it in a ‘bengali’ way! so when Kpop idols have bad pronouncing skills i don’t mind! (honestly i find it adorable!!) because i realise they’re saying it the korean way! especially when i sometimes see the hangul form of the word and i’m like oh, no wonder they pronounce it like that!!!
    i hope all that made sense! and yes i completely understand you guys aren’t talking about the mispronouncing! 
    i just wanted to comment on that though cos some people out there won’t understand from this point of view!!

      I have to agree with that. When I’m in Japan, and include English words in my conversation, I also pronounce it in what I call ‘Katakana English’. Because honestly, if I say it normally, nobody will understand what I’m saying. So, instead of saying I’m from Australia, I say I’m from ‘Oosutolalia’.
      Also, a lot of my lecturers were from India, Europe, or even New Zealand (which is almost the same as Australia) – thus they all had funny pronunciation and accents, which made it hard for us to understand them, but their English was perfect in terms of grammar and usage of vocabulary (being medical professors, so duh), so we just had to suck it up and pay even more attention.

      But, BUT, that said, I don’t blame you for making fun of random English sprinkles that don’t make sense. It’s pretty ridiculous.

  97. Yay, you guys are awesome! I was having a bad day, and then I came home and saw this! ^^

  98. Voting for the Junsu, of course. XD

    Thanks for the eeentoxicating review! Yeah, those sasaengs would def be arrested for stalking (etc) in my part of the world. I think most Junsu fans agree about the way the video was filmed…but mostly b/c we’d prefer to see MORE Junsu!!

    LOL @ Sexy Spudgy, and room twirling! :)

  99. I live for kpop music mondays xD I was doing my fake nails and still watching. result? I can’t type and some of them are not straight..

  100. New Junsu fan here! You guys converted me to the Junsu Side…the sexy side of the force..oh yes~ ;B

    Simon and Martina, Junsu and the girlfriend weren’t just spinning in the beginning. They were obviously playing ring around the rosie…duh

  102. hahaha! didn’t notice the lens flare until you pointed it out. Was too distracted by Junsu’s blue hair but his voice is amazing as usual. Don’t you think he should’ve done the Ayy Girl move at the club?

  103.  My problem with the English isn’t the random silly ones thrown in. I agree that those are annoying, it’s the use of legit Konglish that is part of the Korean language being seen as random mispronounced english words. (Examples: 하이라이트, 포인트, 베스트,키스, 핸드폰, etc.)

    THE WIDESCREEN. And I love the song, but honestly I cannot stand the pronunciation, I think the song could sound beautiful in Korean too tho. 

  105. I was brushing my teeth while I watched this…..and now I’m cleaning the screen…

  106. Simon & Martina, Bruce “Automatic” Vanderveer is a great guy and I think it’s fine that he popped in the MV. :) He even commented on Junsu’s YT”Uncommitted” MV page several times, answering people’s questions.  His explanation of the MV: 
    “I wrote this about a man who was a player in his past, but finally found the woman.of his dreams! The problem is she doesnt believe he can stay devoted to her, he is used to cheating on women, and she says to him” your the kind of guy thats only good for one night, but you youll never stay committed to me!”. In the end, he’s the one with a broken heart!”
