2NE1 “I Love You” – Vote for them here

 

Ok, this song is obnoxiously stuck in our head. It even gets to the point that one of us just starts thinking about the song, and then the other is like “damn I can’t stop singing it in my head”…A FEW SECONDS AFTER THE FIRST PERSON STARTS THINKING ABOUT IT! There’s something really freaky about that. We do that sometimes with other things apart from music right away, and it makes conversations a bit awkward when we stop the conversation and yell at the other person to get our of each other’s head. JUST AWKWARD. I guess it’s because we’re so close and sappy and all that mushy crap.

Woo Young “Sexy Lady” – Vote for him here!

 

Holy snap: we must review this song. The dance is great, and just waiting for us to talk about it. And all the cheesy lens flares! Oh god! We could have so much fun with this! And the beat of the song: wow! We sometimes recreate the beats of Kpop songs for our skits, like our Junsu’s Intoxication song, which you hear every time there’s something sexy going on in our videos. But this beat? JESUS IT’S SO EASY!

BUH BUH BUHHHHH BUH
BUH BUH BUHHHHH BUH
BUH BUH BUHHHHH BUH
BUH BUH BUHHHHH BUH

That’s it for 4 minutes and 34 seconds. We could totally give you the best Kpop cover song ever, if you just vote this in, SO DO IT!

Wonder Girls “Like Money” – Vote for them here!

 

Let’s get a vote here: is this Kpop or not? Even YouTube isn’t sure about it.

(Which, by the way, we’re finding it cool that YouTube is tweeting about Kpop more often lately).

Anyhow, I hope our explanation of why we included this video on the charts is fair. Or, if it ain’t fair, we’ll just claim being biased because it’s in English and YOU KNOW WE LOVE US SOME ENGLISH! Kpop songs entirely in English fit the spirit of this site, though, since we’re really interested in Kpop’s impact on the West. Trust me, guise: when we go to Japan one of these days months years, we’ll start reviewing Japanese songs, including Kpop songs in Japanese. OK WE’LL DO IT ONE DAY PROMISE! Just…we’re not sure when we’ll go there, but it is a dream of ours to live there one day. We just like it here too much to go! Promise us you’ll still watch our channel if we move, k?

  1. plzplzplz mention the queen (u know who im talking about :D) in the next chart update :)

    Urgh, the Wonder Girls/Akon song is so offensive. “Love me like money, love me like a car”? I know you guys hold back on what you say in these mini reviews, so maybe you thought that too and were saving it up in case it came up on Music Mondays, but I’m really disappointed that you would help to promote something so demeaning. The song made me so angry that I want to go Mechastomp things :-(

    On a slightly less ranty note, if Simon’s mother tongue is Polish, does that mean he’s TRILINGUAL? And, more importantly, are his cats back home in Canada? I have a friend who is Greek Canadian and her cat is trilingual, as it has (and responds to) a different name in whichever language it’s being spoken to in.

  3. so disappointed that there’s no B.A.P, i want to see simon dance their No Mercy *sight* hope next time.

  4. why do i keep on thinking that the title is like monkey?????????????

  5. I totally paused this video to let it buffer and got the most hilarious still of Martina mid sentence. I don’t want to embarrass Martina by posting it since I love you guys and think you’re hilarious (and Martina is beautiful). I just couldn’t help myself.

  6. i heard WONDER GIRLS: LIKE MONEY when i was walking in MYEONGDONG tonight!!! so does that count as it being promoted here?? :D

  7. I promise to always watch because y’all are awesome but also because I was into Japanese culture loooong before I was in to Korean culture!! So that would be even more awesome in some ways. You should do anime crunch or anime mondays there!! XD
    I love all 3 of these vids. I mean lets face it 2NE1 all look like asian Rihannas and Wonder girls have AKON!! Jang woo young not only looks hott but he has some sweet dances in this vid!! Love it all! <3

  8. hi i love you guys, you guys are the perfect couple i was wodering what you guys do for a living thats has nothing to do with kpop are jpop

  9. grr im also disappointed cause SS501 Kim Hyun Jun is not there grr it’s been like a week since he released his MV

  10. MARTINA you’re such a good singer…y u no show us yo mad skills?

  11. for some reason everytime i click play on the main videos on your pages they all shift to the right and part of the screen is cut off. it happened while i atched the fap fap and the playlist with 2ne1….this has never happened before so i dont know why its happening.
    can you fix it?

  12. I like 2ne1′s “I Love You” ^_^

  13. flashbackofthepast

    i seriously can’t stop listening to the 2ne1 song .. every time i stop the song it just plays in my head hahaha omg good thing its a good song :))

  14. I wish we could fast forward to Monday for Kpop Music Monday featuring “T-ara Day By Day”
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=brnCe8lL7l4

  15. I wish we could fast forward to Monday for Kpop Music Monday featuring 2NE1′s I Love You already! Ahhhh!!!! *excited much*

  16. The woman voice at the beginning of ‘Like Money’ sounds like Martina’s :D

  17. OMG! That Jang Woo Young video was HORRIFIC, the girls in it seemed bored being there…..

  18. Keikari_Haiku

    So is Wonder Girls’ song like money considered a k-pop song even though it’s sung entirely in english? After all JYJ did a song entirely in English with (Ayyy Girl……which is forever tarnished, in a good way, thanks to Simon xD) and it was still considered k-pop, right? Right?

  19. well, you reviewed JYJ’s ayyy girl, and is all english too^^ so i don’t see why you can’t do Like Money, but i voted for ”I love you”, so, just saying XD

  20. the wonder girls and akon are going to perform like money during the Green Groove Festival which is taking place in Daecheon Beach so they are going to perform like money in korea

  21. ochixiru

    Am I the only one who thinks that the lyrics to “Like Money” are kinda disturbing? I mean come on, they’re telling someone to love them like money and cars? That’ll get you a nice and devoted relationship. Unless of course they don’t want a nice and devoted relationship, and I’m thinking into this too much aren’t I. It’s a catchy song, should just leave it at that.

  22. Yeah Wooyoungs song is great, but it will never be reiviewed :/

  23. I promise ^^ Actually, I may like it better… or not xD Just love both Korean AND Japanese music :D

  24. FriedChickenOnew
    FriedChickenOnew

    I think it is more like inspired by kpop because kpop is korean pop and this is in english. Anyone agree?

  25. Brace yourself!!!! PSY – Gangnam Style MV is coming! And it’ll be awesome and sooooo much fun since Yoo Jae Suk, Hong Chul, Hyuna are going to be in the video! Can’t you believe that!? Simon, Martina, i’ve already feel the heat even the MV hasn’t out yet!!! Goooooshh! :))

  26. what about NU’EST??? they are in third place!!!!

  27. I agree. i could totally see you two having buckets of fun reviewing Sexy Lady. XD So I’m gonna vote for that one! but you better review Nu’est – Action next week! (…plz?)

  28. If Akon had a fan group I think it’d probably be called konvicts since he used to call himself that.

  29. Pradogirl

    Ok jut bc u guys r going to have fun with this video sexy sexy lady I’m going to vote for it. Bc 2ne1 is going to win already. I wanna see u guys get uhhhhyou so nasty lol

  30. They have been blasting Like Money all over the place the last couple of days. I heard it like 3-4 times from stores walking around Sinchon and Myeongdong. So I’d say it’s safe enough for the kpop charts.

  31. suncat333

    What about nu’est???

  32. I know it’s a bit out of topic, but I love how JYP always put eng sub on their vids.
    Just saying :D

  33. Julie Dam

    Ahhh tough decision! I’m not sure which one I want to win :S

  34. suzu4381

    It’s a tough pick this week but my vote went to Woo Young for the video and dance number. Best choreography I’ve seen in a while, I love the ending and loved how they shot the video in a room that made sense- a club!

  35. Whaaaat? Jang Wong Young is a real song/video? I thought it was a like a joke or something. I had my head cocked through the whole thing waiting for the punch line. Oh Simon I can so see you dance to this. Martina you need to make a big censor bar…the young will be scarred from the dance. And yes I am going to vote for it because I am a masochist.

    Glad your getting more moderators. I like to read the comments with out all the crazies out there.

    As for the Kpop for this song….0 out of 5 …I just don’t see it as Kpop.

  37. Ahahahaah Akon and The Lonely Island! lolling forever

  38. I love all three songs and I would love for Wooyoung to win for Kpop Music Monday in a week, but with both BEAST and Brown Eyed Girls coming out with music videos next week, I doubt it’ll happen. :<

  39. fuuko4869

    Akon was in I Just Had Sex? I totally forgot….I actually haven’t heard much of his stuff lately. The first thing I thought of was actually ‘Lonely’. Before 2NE1 came along, I used to sing that song whenever anyone said the word ‘lonely’….
    Am I showing my age? hahahaha

  40. thisisjustforfunval
    thisisjustforfunval

    Also, I swear I hear it say Kung Pow at the 3:30 mark in Sexy Lady. I’m prone to mishearing things which leads to many lol’s but I swear I hear Kung Pow every time.

  41. thisisjustforfunval
    thisisjustforfunval

    I really like all three of these song. In fact I am additively in love with 2NE1′ I Love You. As for Sexy Lady, your tweet about the obsessive insane spammer got me to check out the song and it was like wow.

    BTW this is just a curiosity but how do vids make it on the chart. Kept waiting for Kim Hyung Jun’s Sorry I’m Sorry to show up, I tried posting it but got the message it was already posted. I know it won’t win Music Monday, but I still would have loved to vote on it.

  42. I hope 2ne1 will make it for the music monday this week ^^
    about wooyoung’s sexy lady: did anybody else get extremely annoyed by those girls dancing around in the club in this video? they look sooooo bored and serious, like they’re not having fun at all! especially the girl in the black glittering dress on the right. why would she go to that club in the first place when she obviously doesn’t like it at all? >__<

  43. NaToTheWak

    Oh, and among the videos missing on the charts this week, there is Younha’s Run http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1ulVHU-7bo Thank you!

  44. Still disappointed about there being no NU’EST …………..

  45. NaToTheWak

    Thanks a lot for explaining about the songs in English and Japanese and Chinese! It was what I were waiting for!

    But boooo for using my joke and not crediting me! (http://www.facebook.com/EatYourKimchiPage/posts/10151243043141102) Ok, maybe you didn’t see it. Maybe.

    Did you notice that Woohyung’s club was totally dead, like in Hands Up? It totally cracked me up! In what kind of lame clubs do these guys party?

  46. Hahahahahaha – I really don’t think we need to recover Simon. I love that you embrace the K-pop love!

  47. Omg I just need you guys to know. When Simon was introducing Sexy Lady I was thinking “Aww man, that DOES sound interesting, I should probably find and watch that video… ugh, effort” and then I DIDN’T HAVE TO because I WAS IN PLAYLIST MODE AND IT WAS RIGHT THERE.

    And then I cried the end.

  48. I was watching the Wonder Girls video, watching, watching, and then the doctor pulled his doctor stuff off and I saw his face and I immediately thought “JYP!!” He won’t even have to put his name in the videos and songs anymore, all he has to do is put his face somewhere in the video and we’ll yell JYP just fine by ourselves :D

  49. abi_ELF

    okay! i vote for jokwon~~~

  50. dothrakiwomanwarrior

    It’s too bad you guys can’t clone yourselves because I’d love reviews for all of these songs (and Action). Sigh. /Fangirl problems
    And Martina actually sounds really good when she sings Hate You. Maybe I’m too used to the Spudgy voice when you sing xD And It Hurts would work at a funeral. Or, veering away from 2NE1, can it get more appropriate than Big Bang’s Still Alive? I think not.

  51. I fell in love with Sexy Lady! Simon are you going to scar me for life by botching the dance to that? ….Oh….. Hey Simon and Martina *totally a bit unrelated* What do you think about CHI CHI’s new song Love is Energy. I like the beat too but 2 no 3 things the English, The wings * O.o….* and that stupidly weird hand swivel/twirl thingy…. its odd… and i always screw up….

  52. This is just a question to satisfy my curiosity… But is an English song written by a non-Korean American, to cater to the North American industry (mostly), still considered K-Pop just because it was produced by Rhee Woo Seok? (He was also behind “Nobody”, just a fun fact).

    I bring it up because there are a lot of people (I refuse to say ‘netizens’) who refuse to categorize this track as K-Pop. My opinion is simple. If they’re Korean, and they’re singing pop music, regardless of the language, that sounds about 3-5 years out-of-date by North American standards…. It’s K-Pop.

  53. knightowlnessie

    “I hate you (Hitler) eheheheheheheh…”
    Not gonna lie, I chortled a bit. Nearing guffaw, but didn’t quite make it.

  54. I love all three of the these songs!!! your short reviews are priceless!!

  55. fuuko4869

    I will totally watch your channel even if you move – in fact, I might watch it even more, since you’ll be moving to my favourite country~! o((*^▽^*))o

  56. martina…you look like a cute bunny ^^
