Hey everyone! Welcome to the second edition of the K Crunch KpopCharts Update for the week of February 11th, 2012. Today we’re talking about four more videos on the KpopCharts and how they’re doing. We’ll give you a chance to vote on them all, and hopefully we can review your choices for our Music Mondays. So, if you’ve got half an hour to spare, sit down and check out today’s playlist. If you’re on a mobile device, well, playlists aren’t your friend.

1) Jay Park “Know Your Name”: Vote for it!

Jay Park is back, fresh off the heels of “Star,” which we reviewed and loved the chicken dance for. COKA! COKA CO! Chickens don’t clap! Ah. We really miss Arrested Development.

Anyhow, there are two versions of this song. One is a slow acoustic version in which Jay Park, again, acts awkward around girls. Another is a good version! Ha! Joking. Some of you like seeing Jay Park interact with girls and be maegyo. We prefer to see him dance to something more upbeat, which is why we like this song a lot more. Check it out if you haven’t already!

2) Se7en “When I Can’t Sing”: Vote for it!

Se7en’s back! Back when we went to the YG concert we heard him talking about coming back a lot. And now he’s here! He sings a ballad-y kind of song in which he performs, looks all sad, and then watches TV in Jay Park’s house. This time, though, he doesn’t blur out the top of Jay Park’s house the way Jay Park does. He just watches TV all sadly. Seriously, how do you have such a big house and old, tiny-ass TV? Se7en, give us a call. We got a big TV. I’ll bring it over to your place and we can play video games together. Or you can sit down and stare at it if that’ll make you feel better.

3) LEDApple “Time is Up”: Vote for it!

Ok, this is our first experience with LEDApple. Their sound is very different from what we’re used to. This style of video is something we’re really not used to as well. Seriously! We make videos for a living (videos about videos: META VIDEOS!) so that’s why we pay attention to small details in Music Videos. Anyhow, we saw this video and were really impressed with the animations. Cool! We can’t draw worth a diddly squat – if you can’t tell from our TL;DRs by now – so we really appreciated this video. Ah! Ok we’ll stop fawning over that now.

4) Clazzi “Love&Hate” – Vote for it!

You know we’re Clazzi fans. We’ve talked about him and his music repeatedly, and totally gushed over How We Feel for one of our K Crunches. We’re not losing our mind over this song, though. Not that it’s a bad song. It’s still an awesome song. But we don’t really gush over darker sounding songs. We appreciate them a lot, but we don’t bounce around the house like bunnies. We’ll walk around and be cool to this song, but we won’t be silly to it. You know the distinction we’re trying to make? Ah! Things make more sense in our heads than out of them.

Yeah! So that’s it for this week’s playlist. See you again tomorrow when we introduce some more awesome Indie music. Woot woot!

  7. I’ve always been a fan of LEDApple from their debut and I’ve got to say this song creeped up on my top to play list. Totes voting for it for MM =)

    This song was kinda different than what they’ve played before but I guess that’s what I like about them, they keep changing :3. 

    Ex. http://youtu.be/gUfN6CXDjpU

  8. FYI Dok2 is pronounced doki ( or… dokki?? ). It means an ax.

  9. When listening to Love&Hate all I could think of was WOW, so Pink Floyd-esq. Pretty good, but yikes those types of songs, always give me a grim vibe and I don’t like it. :P From a music standpoint it’s good if you’re into that :)
    LEDApple’s song was pretty catchy, but likes others have said they star at the camera a lot and it’s awkward.
    When I Can’t Sing- the best part was the solo dancing scene at the end. totally cool :)
    Know Your Name- was pretty catchy also, but yikes I know I’ll get slammed for this, but WOW so much useless Auto-tune. :P

  10. Love Clazzi totally voting for him… I like the new LEDApple song because it’s catchy but man did they look like rookies in their video. They really need dancing lessons, and lessons on how to not stare into the camera like a creeper.

  11. i never heard of LEDapple but i loved their song it is really catchy…i also liked Jay Park’s song i love his style he totally rocks the suit and hat…
    i would really like to see what u guys think of Tae Yang’s song wedding dress it kinda has the same feel as STAR and Know your name…

  12. ledapple’s so cute and their song doesn’t even sound korean, but in a good way. i hope they can get a lot of support because i know they’ve had to overcome a lot of obstacles.

  13. K.

    I love your description of the different feelings between Clazzi’s two singles! Dead on!! How We Feel is totally the song to start the day and pump you up, while Love Hate is the song you play getting ready to hit a night on the town. I like both SO much, but I agree, when How We Feel first came out, it was on loop in my iPod. I could not stop listening to it.

    Anyway, the entire Infant album is really interesting and full of win. But those two songs are still my favorites.

    Also, w00t w00t for the black girl in Jay Park’s video!!!!  Not gonna lie, that made my night!! haha! What a nice surprise!

  14. I vote up LEDApple…is it possible… a k-pop boy band in which all the guys are cute?  Usually there is always on funny looking one…

    The song is fun and it is cool to see actual musical instruments being played.

  15. Its pronounced Dok-ii… like a heartbeat!

  16. Woohoo, LEDApple! I’ve liked them since their debut, and their song is pretty awesome. By the way, it’s pronounced as in your second try, ‘레드 에플’, all together, not L.E.D. I hope you review them!

  17. I agree. This video is amazing, like a mini movie. The teaser is also great. Im so happy many pll like them, looks like they will have some new fans ^_^

  19. wow, for some reason i though LEDapple was just some solo artist and i wasn’t really interested but now watching it here… they are quite awesome :O …and they’re all cute too :33 *votes for them*

  20. It’s Doki (You see that when it’s written in Hangul, and you heard it in the beginning of the song).. Almost ducky:P

    Jay Park: I totally loved that girl!:D In a non… romantic way…

  21. I’ve heard of LEDapple before but never listened to them ’till now. ^^ And I really like it! Kinda weird seeing 2 members that are singers though haha. It’s usually only one singer. That’s pretty cool. :)

  22. really liked ledapple and want more!! enjoyed the sound…

  23. haha Seven’s set was used by Hyunah, U-KISS, Taeyang etc. maybe Super Junior XD 
    in Clazzi’s song there is this sound like in a radio and it reminds me of begining of f.cuz song because they use something similar, and for the whole song I was just wainting for “tum tum F.cuz” XD anyway, Clazzi’s song is really awesome i like it
    jay again serve us a good song, but the mv.. idk i think i don’t like the editing. but i’m going to vote for it anyway, i think this mv has bigger potential to review.

    LEDApple’s song is very cool! I love your blog posts so much, I wanted to say that. I get the whole EYK experience by watching your videos (bloopers, extras, real videos, open the happy, etc), see the Facebook posts,read the blogs. You guys really go the extra mile. It’s appreciated.

  31. Thank you for including LEDApple! I totally love the song and I always do the little finger wiggle move when they sing “you~~~” in the chorus. Checkout “Someone Met By Chance”, too. Definitely not a typical k-pop video and a catchy song.

  34. Love hate has this awesome sound to it that totally makes me think of some older group form the 70s (minus the rap part of course) that I can’t quite put my finger on…. Seriously aaaaaweeessoooome

    • I got the same feeling, too, and I also can’t put my feeling on it.  I blame it on the vocals.  Something about them…
