Hyuna “Ice Cream” – Vote for it here!

 

Oh HyunA! We don’t even know what to say about her videos anymore. They’re so…special. Though we don’t particularly like the way she portrays sexuality, we still find her videos so chock full of ridiculousness that we know we’d have a boatload of fun talking about “Ice Cream.” It’s a shame that people aren’t voting for this video as much as they voted for Troublemaker and Bubble Pop. I think people are worried about us going on an angry rant again. But we won’t! We’ll have fun! We’ll make the nastiest, sexiest, most arousing and disturbing video Kpop Music Mondays has ever seen. We will destroy your libido and control your nightmares for months! Well, I guess that’s a good reason not to vote for it. Uggghh.

Epik High “Don’t Hate Me” – Vote for it Here!

 

Before we say anything about the video, we’d like to say hi to Cari Cakes, who helps moderate our KpopCharts, and who is also interning at YG and helped out with the promotion of Epik High’s new album. Hi Cari! Yes, we do have someone technically both working on Eat Your Kimchi and at YG. Coincidence?!?! I think not! Turns out that Cari’s been warning YG against us this whole time: “Stay away from them EYK people’s. I work with them. THEY’RE CRAZY!”

Also, our other moderator, Fuuko4869 is a huge Epik High fan, and has been anticipating their comeback for months.

And, on top of that, we really like Tablo. We loved his solo work for YG, and we really sympathize with him. He’s got crazy ass netizen stalkers. We’ve got some angry people on Twitter. Not really the same, but we feel like poop after reading angry Twitterers: we can’t even imagine what Tablo’s going through. We can, though, feel immense sympathy for him.

Altogether, all things are pointing you to vote for Epik High: the Eat Your Kimchi staff love em, and the song’s great, and the video’s really interesting as well. WIN WIN situation, so go vote!

B.A.P “Stop It” – Vote for it here!

 

Speaking of angry people on Twitter, I’m sure we’re about to get a bunch more after what we said about this song and video. HOW DARE WE SAY BAD THINGS ABOUT B.A.P.!??!? WE’RE HATERS!

We’re not haters: let us clarify that. We love B.A.P’s other stuff. Warrior, No Mercy, and Power really makes them stand out from other Kpop Boy Bands, who – a lot of the time – just seem to be repeating the same formula. B.A.P. brought something different to the table, and we really like that about them, and so to see them go the cutey boy route makes us feel sad in our bellies. Don’t vote for this song. We don’t like it, and we’ll just say more bad things about it. Don’t be angry at us for saying that, either! I’m sure some of you B.A.P. fans feel the same way about this song, right? RIGHT?! We can’t be alone here in this!

  1. I totally understand, though I really did want you guys to review “stop it” I actually was REALLY curious about what you guys were going to say about the video, why? because I didn’t actually like it :( I really like B.A.P, and I really liked the more masculine image, because cutesy guys don’t really do it for me, so even though I’m a fan of theirs, I wouldn’t have been offended or anything. But I also have the weird opinion that fans don’t have to blindly love every song that a group makes.

  2. You guys need to put dates on your updates. I’m gen Y, I don’t hav the patience to search for clues!

    • Barry Adams

      You could always look at the same video on youtube and look at the date uploaded. It’s just one click away and no need to look for clues.

    • A completely new professionally coded ( as in done by a pro and not Simon) site is going to be rolled out in a few days so hopefully things like that will be a part of it. I too wish there were dates on things. *crosses fingers*

    Epik High! Epik High! Epik High!!

  4. I don’t like Hyunah but I love when you guys talk about her videos in music mondays is really fun! and I know ice cream also have to do a great Music mondays~ even if I like more Epic high, so~ here is my vote!

  5. I must say I’m pretty dissapointed with B.A.P… I mean, as mentioned before, even though they weren’t trained by any of the big three, they had an explosive debut and a few follow-ups definitely still brought something new and fresh to the table. I know some of you like concept changes, but for a group that had such a distinctive image right from the start, they had to be far way more careful. There are groups like 2NE1 that can realease something like ‘Lonely’ and drop ‘I Am The Best’ afterwards and people wouldn’t bother. Actually, what happend to B.A.P is much more of a f(x)-like indentity crisis. I hope they’ll go back to their roots as soon as possible, ’cause I’m a fan who hopes they’re gonna keep selling big and leave their marks on K-Pop, and certanly don’t want the boys to develop a confusing image..

    HelloEmski
    Okay i’m one of those who has decided to stop voting as well.
    I suppose it’s because i’m fed up with the voting and also the fact they told us not to vote. That just made me want to vote so they had to do a review. Everything has probably already been said and i don’t know how to say things. This has nothing to do with the fact we lost.
    I don’t hate S&M and i will still watch their videos. I just won’t vote anymore, i no longer see the fun in it. If i remember what else i wanted to say i’ll come edit this post.5

    Chibi K -> HelloEmski
    they didn’t say you shouldn’t vote for it. they just said they wouldn’t like to review it. probably because they thought it would be a boring music monday since they don’t know anything interesting they could say about it.and because they wouldn’t say nice things about it and don’t want fans to be disappointed or angry.
    I really hate how everyone’s saying that S&M said you shouldn’t vote for it. You guys should listen more closely -.-0

    Barry Adams -> Chibi K
    I’m not a fan of this song but S&M did say not to vote for it. They didn’t directly say it in the video, but in the write up they said:”Don’t vote for this song. We don’t like it, and we’ll just say more bad things about it. Don’t be angry at us for saying that, either!”

    For me personally, it is less the actual voting system and more what it incites (though the whole twitter post thing about including Youtube views in the point system is probably the worst idea ever. Smaller groups will definitely never get reviews that way, so I hope this isn’t real). There is so much competition going on. You go on the different pages and get fans saying things like the other group doesn’t deserve to be reviewed because they’ve been reviewed this number of times, because they suck, etc (i.e. with Block B it was because of the Thailand thing, definitely saw some posts like that). You get fights and anger and frustration builds. I’ll admit that I’ve been one of those people who, in trying defend against angry remarks, get snapped at and I snap back. And I know I’m not the only one. It becomes less of a fun thing. But, that is why we have our lovely mods who are pretty good about keeping things in line! You guys are seriously awesome!!!
    It also doesn’t feel good to be voting your ass off and then watch a KMM that just feels..unenthusiastic, with less focus on the actual song and video and more focus on the funny skits. The skits are great, don’t get me wrong, it’s just that sometimes it feels like the song is ignored. I see it in comments all the time about how S&M didn’t mention this part which is like the highlight or one of those things that all fans are talking about, things that you’d think S&M would touch upon.
    In regards to KMMs that feel lackluster, I’d assume it stems from a lack of interest in the song on S&M’s part. I’ve been stating this on this site for a while, but I think they need to get rid of the chart update video and bring back the Kcrunch cocktail. The chart update just incites that competition again because it brings in a bunch of people who never vote to come vote for whatever, and its those things that bring up last minute losses (I’ve seen plenty of heartbreaking comments about how a video in their last chance is in first but the chart update brings in votes for the new video which can easily take first because it doesn’t have the decay on it.) If they did Kcrunch instead, S&M would have the ability to talk about videos that they want while leaving the KMM to the fans vote, and there’d be less anger over who wins the fan vote because it is actual Nasties and not the casual Youtube subscriber popping in last minute. At least then there’d be a semblance of everybody being happy. And S&M can always have a little thing at the end of the Kcrunch showing the current chart rankings.
    I’m still a Nasty and still support S&Ms work, just venting some frustrations. Might as well right? ^^
    Hopefully this made some sense, I’m half asleep and recovering from the effects of a wedding reception, but this is the only chance I have today to get on here so.. :P

    Maybe S&M should only post MVs they want to review on the chart & THEN let viewer votes. I know that some may think that’s an unfair concept because it risks the chances of their bias-video to not be posted, but what’s the difference in S&M HOPING/stating they don’t want to review a video? So might as well not put it on the chart. I think if they do it this way, they won’t have to make those comments & they won’t be stuck on ideas on how to present KPMM for that video or be scare to make all bad comments. Iif they post MV of only ones they’d think would be good to review, don’t get mad that your artist(s)’s video is not on on the chart because through this procedure, we’ll get entertaining KPMM. I mean, isn’t that what KPMM for? Funny skits, laughter, thought-provoking.. Etc.
    BTW, I am a BAP fan. Also, honestly, I did stop voting for this video because of Simin’s comment. I didn’t feel anything negative toward him because he has his rights to have an opinion & he was just being honest. As a fan, I just want BAP to continue their streak of KPMM-wins. However, I stopped voting because I didn’t want to have a lackluster KPMM video AND I really didn’t want S&M to bash BAP’s work. I get that BAP’s new concept is not S&M cup of tea so I just didn’t want to watch what I already have a good idea of what the review might have consist of.13 3

    Barry Adams -> InImpressiveformxx
    I’ve had similar thoughts. I think it will boil down to what S&M really want. If they want the fans to have the power of what they review, then they should keep the KPOP Chart as is and not tell fans to not vote for something.
    If they want to have their own say in what gets reviewed, then they should tweak the system in some way or change it all together, like give fans 3 videos per week to vote for for only that week and no other voting.
    I wish instead of 1 IP address per 24 hours to vote that they would switch it to 1 IP address per week. to vote. That way the casual fan who may only visit once a week would have just as much say as the fan who visits everyday.
    I hope they still continue to include all videos on their KPop chart cause this is the best source for new KPop videos. I just sort the chart by date and I can see what new KPop songs are out.0

    lunibelle -> InImpressiveformxx
    Hm, I guess if they just put songs on the charts that they want to review a lot of people would be even angrier. I’d rather have them say something bad about a song/video I love than having a preselected choice videos I might no even care for. I understand what you’re saying, I sometimes thought that, too, but I think they have to suck it up if they’re making a fan based voting :D Tough luck.0

    InImpressiveformxx -> lunibelle
    I meant they should post up videos they have ideas for..that means good or bad opinions. Like Simon said he doesn’t want review BAP’s video because he doesn’t really have any skits or ideas in mind forthr review.0

    lunibelle -> InImpressiveformxx
    It would be a lot easier for them to script their videos, but I think they’d get even more people saying they’re biased :D Maybe they’re even a little drained after over 2 years of KPMM. It’s worth a try, but I think that even more people would be unsatisfied, but it might make fans of less popular groups happy. There are sooo many videos that don’t stand a chance, because the international fanbase is too thin, but S&M might find the video awesome. It’s really difficult to say what would be the “right” decision, since there will always be people who’re unhappy with whatever. I hope once they have their studio and enough employees that there will be a solution for these problems, maybe even a review segment on purely songs Simon and Martina want to review. Or a segment on older Kpop songs. I just thought about canceling KPMM altogether, but I think a lot of their viewers want to see those, so they’d probably lose a lot of people if they stopped reviewing. Ah :/ So difficult, but maybe if all of us Nasties would put their minds together, we might be able to help SImon and Martina find a solution for this. :)1

    InImpressiveformxx -> lunibelle
    I get what you’re saying. It was just an idea. I hope this doesn’t turn into a big thing where KPMM is endangered of being cancelled. I would be disappointed.

    builtbymachines
    Well, even though B.A.P didn’t win, I’ll still come back. I was Nasty before I was a Baby, so yeah. Also, this whole pact thing to leave and not come back is ridiculous, and I’m a little disappointed. So B.A.P doesn’t get reviewed this ONE time (Crash doesn’t count because I don’t think it was even on the chart to begin with and I’m glad it wasn’t because it was a gift to fans), big deal. Our oppas (coughandZelocough) are strong, so Babyz have to be stronger.
    I guess I’m just a little touchy about it because I’m also a L.O.V.E, and I think that if L.O.V.Es are strong enough to sick around, then Babyz should be too.

    Gabriela Wolf -> builtbymachines
    I’ll tell you the process of our decision in short:
    – B.A.Ps “Stop it” came out and our group of Babys was mainly disappointed.
    – All of us were like “we don’t necessarily need to see it at KMM, so let’s not vote too excessively, better to wait for another badass concept”
    – S&M uploaded their KPop-Charts update and introduced B.A.Ps “Stop it”, we Babys: *nodnod* totally your opinion S&M, though, sad you don’t want to review it, but we understand
    – S&M wrote: “Don’t vote for this, we don’t like it…”, Babys: o________o “What??”
    – Comment section here: … *silence*, a few comments “STOP VOTING, S&M DON’T WANT TO REVIEW THIS”, we Babys: ò_______Ó …. “What the…??” ENOUGH! Have we committed a crime or something? That’s not fair! (is that the reward for our helpfulness and reputation?)
    – Babys started voting like crazy again, cause pissed + wanted to defend our boys who don’t deserve something like this + growing idea, song is not overwhelming but the MV is beautiful + decision, this was the last time ever voting for KMM
    – Babys reached to the top, voted, commented, fought like crazy
    – BAP lost anyway, in the last few minutes, paradoxically
    – Babys: *sigh* Okay. Whatever. Bye KMM.

    Jocelyn Himbutt -> builtbymachines
    We aren’t leaving because B.A.P lost. Even if B.A.P did win this time we were still planning to leave anyway. We had a long discussion about this and the majority of our small little group have decided that we no longer want to take part in KMM.
    We’re unhappy with the system overall and we refuse to work with something we don’t believe in.
    Everyone should be able to make their choice about whether or not they want to vote without being judged.

    Michelle Jocelyn -> Himbutt
    So I wasn’t here for this whole “Babyz no longer participating in KMM” thing, but after reading some comments about it, there is something I’d like to know from those Babyz: what is it that you don’t like about the current voting system? And what system do you think would work better? I think that the current system, going by current popularity rather than total points, works just fine. If we went by total votes, then we’d pretty much have the same videos at the time all the time.
    I just…I dunno. Even as a devoted Baby myself, I just don’t understand why people take these things, the voting, S&M’s comment, etc. so seriously and personally. Like, KMMs don’t really have much affect on your groups. I dunno, I just feel like this whole thing is being blown way out of proportion. However, I respect your decision and how you went about it in a polite way. The voting is for S&M to get fan input and it’s totally fine if you don’t want to give that, and it’s no big deal whether you vote or not because KMMs are just for fun. We’re both just expressing how we feel. uvu
    However, I still think that if you’re going to complain about the voting system, you should at least have an idea of how it could be improved instead of just throwing the issue at S&M’s faces and being like, “Do something about this!”

    lunibelle -> builtbymachines
    I think that (at least for some of them) they’re not leaving because BAP lost this time, but because S&M told them to stop voting for BAP, and they’re unhappy with the voting system. That’s what I think at least. I think it’s amazing that LOVES are so strong and I hope that most of the Babies will be back :) Though I think it’s their right to decide to stop voting for KPMM if they think the voting system isn’t right or just don’t want to have the competition going on anymore. :)
    I’m happy that you’re sticking around!3

    • I wanted to say that one of these comments, by Audrey, had a part that completely mirrored my own feelings regarding the voting system and KMM. Though I only started commenting and voting on EYK about 5 or 6 months ago, I’ve been a regular viewer for over a year. I miss the KCrunch Cocktails. The one S&M did that included MBLAQ’s Y was how I discovered MBLAQ, and they’ve become one of my favorite bands. I’d also never heard of Mirotic before they introduced it to me. KCrunch Cocktails give S&M a chance to say something about videos that they want to talk about. It also provides exposure for artists and songs that just don’t have the fan base to get them high enough on the charts. In addition, they provide the opportunity for much older videos to be given the spotlight, which is perfect for newer kpop fans who haven’t been around for years and probably aren’t familiar with a diverse range of bands.

      As Audrey mentioned up above, the KPop Chart Updates only serve to fuel unhealthy competition in the charts; I don’t want our comment section to become as divisive and flat-out rude as All Kpop’s. Most of the time S&M tweet when a new song from one of the more popular groups is posted on the charts; this seems an adequate amount of promotion to me. Those songs normally rise up to the first page pretty quickly and therefore gain a lot of visibility already even without the chart updates. So why have an update covering songs that most people already know about? It’s just my opinion, and I in no way mean any disrespect toward S&M, but I do feel strongly that the KCrunch Cocktail segment would go a long ways toward addressing some of the voting system issues that naturally arise from it being fan-driven.

      Perhaps now that S&M are in the process of making the studio a reality and recruiting staff, they will have the time and resources to revive the KCrunch Cocktail segment.

      • I agree full-heartedly. I wonder what’s S&M’s take on this.
        Reading all this stuff made me wonder about the whole point of KMM – I thought I knew it, but now I’m just really confused.

        • S&M leave the decision in our hands by creating the charts.
        • However, they aren’t very consequent with this, hinting (or openly stating) at vids they’d love/hate to review.

        It’s an either-or situation. If you want to review vids that people want you to review, just do it. If you’d rather treat it as a suggestion, then what are the charts even for?

        • they also prefer newer videos, which is mirrored in the “expiration” of the older ones. I assume it’s the means of preventing clogging the charts exclusively with the super-popular groups and turning the charts into a popularity contest.
        • But the KCrunch series showed that there are many old, forgotten MVs, which S&M are very fond of and would like to talk about as well.

        I guess the perfect (and unachievable) solution would be if all the voters voted purely with a hilarious KMM in mind instead of their favourite artist. That, and bringing back the KCrunch Coctails.

      • iloveminhyun

        I wish Simon and Martina see this. There are so many awesome non-popular kpop songs that I really wish we could hear Simon and Martina talk about. Like Orange Caramel. Like Epik High. Like Nu’est. I loved the KCrunch Cocktail because it was just them being goofy and commenting on songs I haven’t heard of and it’s usually funny and it introduced me to new songs. Simon and Martina, please read this. Please? :)

        • They mentioned there are many segments they’d like to do once they’ll hire editors and have more time. Let’s hope KCrunch Coctail is one of them.

    I like B.A.Ps song, If it was released by another boyband who usually have that style I would probably love it. It is strange to see to see them act cute, but I think they do it cheeky and humorously enough for it not to be TOO awkward. But they are balancing on a fine line. More Badassness nest time please!

  8. Nah, I think B.A.P is doing something cutesy because well…. CRASH ( a cutesy song) ranked number 3 on Mcountdown. Personally I think Bang can’t take another cutesy number XD I’m sure their next come back is going to be something bad ass or else Bang would explode XD

  9. Sappyre Hwang

    I heard that BAP changed their concept because the bad-ass, tough boy image is not well-accepted in Korea. And being a rookie group, they need people to accept and like them, so…yeah. Hope they will go back to their original concept. I love BAP, I do think Stop It video is cute, but this kind of song just makes them….one of the boy group. .__.

    • Barry Adams

      *Sigh* Reminds me when Secret changed their song style and then won a couple of Music Banks. I prefer their “Madonna” style to their “My Boy” style.

  10. chuckthegirl

    I actually enjoy B.A.P’s “Stop It.” Having become a fan from the very beginning (and that fandom support being solidified by EYK’s interview with them I might add), I like the fact that they are doing different things instead of being stuck in the same mold. I’ve said this in many other blogs/forums and thinking about it now I have something else to add. Learning about the type of people the individuals of B.A.P are this song actually fits some of their personalities (Himchan for instance). I love that B.A.P broke the “Kpop mold” so many other new groups try desperately to fit into. But if they stay stuck in one genre how can they grow as artists? I like that they’re trying different things musically. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: B.A.P are a hugely talented group of young men. I still think we’ve just scratched the surface of what they have to offer. That they are trying different things musically thrills me to no end. It means they are willing to stretch themselves, no matter if people like it or not. Maybe “Stop It” is a miss, but I choose to look at the bigger picture of B.A.P. I look forward to seeing what they come up with next. To me they seem to be a group who’s genuinely interested in the music and not so focused on the fame and glitz of it all. And with talented leader Bang Yong Guk at the helm, I think they’ll continue on that path.
    ~a dedicated noona Baby ;D

  11. I really love you Simon and Martina, like I think you guys are wonderful!
    and I completely understand where you’re coming from for the Stop It MV
    Sure it’s nothing like Warrior, Power or No Mercy but I guess it’s just showing that they can adapt to different concepts really well? >__<
    Don't worry guys! I'm sure they'll definitely come back to their hip-hop roots :D I think they're just pushing themselves too hard for different concepts so people can see they're talented and so they can win the Rookie award c;
    In the end my vote goes to Epik High's MV because it's simply epic :D Perfect for Halloween and I can't wait to see you guys review it.
    I really respect you guys in being open-minded about your opinion to songs but maybe if you try to see things in a different light?
    I'm sorry if I'm being too rude.. I really don't want to be :(
    Simon and Martina fighting! I still love you guys xD

  12. I’m kind of sad that Maxstep didn’t make it to the charts update :C

  13. I am so so torn about b.a.p, I think there’s nothing wrong with the song on it self, but I don’t think it fits the b.a.p I got to know, and I hate the mv :'(

  14. Haha, personally I am not a very “Rappy” person, so it’s rare for me to like rap-biased stuff. G-Dragon is one of the few that I actually like. Therefore, as I don’t like B. A. P. in general, this was a pleasant surprise. However, I wouldn’t mind if they only made that one cute song and then continued with their usual stuff, because I won’t be dissapointed. Their babies would be if they did. Although, I am pretty sure said fangroup has been waiting for cute stuff a while. After all, aegyo is very hard for these “Warriiors” to do and I know many have been pining over this so… Eh, enjoy?

  15. Do you think that B.A.P is going to be similar to Secret with the powerful (or in Secret’s case sexy) and cute?

  16. Of course Hyuna’s video should be chose as it’s absolutely shocking without ANY sense! and i’m already laughing about your review!! xD
    But….! Epik High’s song is awesome and the MV too is sooo good and halloween-ish than it would be perfect for this week!
    Lastly, i’m a BAP’s baby but i totally can’t stand this song and the MV ! WTF happened there?!?!? The agency has gone maaaad?!?!? i want the real BAP back!!
    Hwr, looking forward to the review guys!!

    P:S: Martina’s hair were extracute in these videos!!

  17. Ace.Of.Hearts♥

    *sound of brain exploding* I want.. to vote for B.A.P but….Epik High is calling as well……and HyunA’s song was good…. >0< *votes for Epik High*…tbh,,I'm a baby but…Stop It.. even though it was cute and Himchan was seriously super adorable and hot… it really brought down their cool 'powerful'warrior image…anyway I LOVED Epik High's Don't Hate Me!!!! it would be super awesome to see a review of it!!!! :D

  18. I didn’t enjoy any of those shrug. Oh well…

  19. The saddest moment when people don’t vote for this song (Hyuna-Ice Cream) because
    of they are afraid the all ‘viral’ thing will effect Hyuna and scared that she
    will get more haters. They said: “those all arrogant American viewers just only
    know Gangnam style and make fun of it (especially about kpop) the whole thing without
    please to understand anything.” :’(((
    S&M you guys need to work out these problems first…

  20. I vote for Hyuna because it’s one of those videos that screams for it. Seriously, one of Hyuna’s marker tattoos probably said EYK, Bring It. If I was cool enough to do a spoof video, I would include a few of my favorite parts. 1) inappropriate noises in the beginning didn’t match actions, so I would make some even more ridiculous ones; 2) did the Flintstones get robbed cause Hyuna’s wearing their bedsheets; 3) did her eyebrows grow back or did she just grow her bangs to cover for their absence; 4) is it just me or does this feel awfully like Milkshake by Kelis?

  21. They beg everyone to vote for HyunA because they are soooo excited to bring a special and fun review for us…it’s at #4. They ask everyone not to vote for B.A.P. and are very open about why…it’s at #1 now. I don’t understand what kind of fans would do this :( Now it’s just gonna be a low energy, kinda sad Music Monday.They bring us such great entertainment and they get kicked in their sad lil bellies.

  22. SImon and Martina..you are saying two completely opposing things at the same time..you are saying you don’t want BAP to follow the same formula that most Boy groups follow to attain popularity supposedly but you are also saying BAP should stick to the confines of a fan imposed formula so that they may achieve popularity through that means….

    …i think BAP should be free to explore their limits..why are people so worried..by EXPERIMENTATION…

    • free to explore as long as it’s not the cutey image ^____________________^
      sorry that’s one kpop “concept” that i really don’t like. but then again i’m not that young.

  23. Strontius

    As one of probably 3 total guys posting here let me just say: I like Hyuna’s Song. Where a lot of artists try to be mildly cute, mildly sexy, and mildly cool at the same time and come off as fake or stale Hyuna slingshots wildly between the 3 extremes. I think the overly sexiness just gets played up more because it’s the only one of the 3 that few other girl groups were doing until recently.

    I can see how that would grate on people but I like the trichotomy it makes.

    At least this time she was only overly sexy for like 30 seconds total… right guys?… guys?

  24. i agree with simon and martina, i liked their other songs but this one wasnt that good… hope it doesnt get reviewed, no offense!

  25. I agree for the B.A.P thing… I even posted my opinion about this song on their fancaf, I don’t think they will read it but well… But in an other way, it would be great if Yongguk could watch your “Stop it” review as for “I remember” even if you say bad things about it, because of this :

    “Question : Do you have any questions for your international fans?
    Yong-guk: Actually we do. I’m curious to learn about their expectations of us in terms of our music and performances.”(cr : Seoulbeats exclusive: Chit-chatting with B.A.P)

    It could be a good way to tell them what we think about it, without being too harsh of course :)

    Miss A’s song would be definitely more interesting to talk. If we compare the lyrics, ’cause I was really surprised, it looks like they criticize something traditional/normal in Korean Civilization. Looking forward to it ! :)

    I love B.A.P but i was really dissapointed. It didn’t surprise me that the next song would be like this as they seemed to be promoting more of their generic love songs recently. I just wished it wasn’t so :'( I want the Warrior B.A.P back! no more of this funny buisness! …..but i have to admit they were adorable blonde asian people ^_^

  27. They are still badass and this song is not just another K pop song! this is a really good song and Daehyun’s singing is just amazing but if you are gonna say bad things about such a great song then I won’t vote for them:(

  28. lolz I agree about bap’s new song and album. I don’t like it either, but I absolutely LOVED their other songs

  29. I love BAP and i love STOP IT this song is still beeing bap style just look the performance in live they are still badass and hot and is not bad that they change their style a bit like others artist i know they gonna comeback with their badass style again but this is because they want more fans! and they want to win the rookie so bad! if bap win the review i hope that you guys dont be so mean..really u__u

    S&M! I’ve never expect something like that of you!

    is very disappointing to read a comment like this about B.A.P! is your job to review the video that have more votes isn’t it?!

    we don’t need these kind of comments! please respect BABYs’ feelings!

    I like all of B.A.P’s songs cutesy or powerful.. because they are great guys with great personalities that really stand out. BUT I think they shouldn’t venture too off of powerful because once there in cutesy they are labeled part of the cutesy majority.

    I’m not saying once in a while they can’t say, hey were cute love our cuteness.. but I know a rapper doesn’t want to be labeled cute… or do they

  32. Ahahaha was that G-Dragon with a crayon in Epik High’s video? Awesummm

  33. I actually really like BAP and was excited when I heard they were coming out with a new video but I had to stop in the middle of it because it was just that bad. Noooooot a fan of boys doing aegyo

  34. I was wondering about b.a.p’s next concept. I’m kind of hoping for something really angsty and badass and horror ish :P but I’d like an angst one :3 any opinions?

  35. I have to admit, I have mixed feelings about B.A.P’s Stop It as well, though perhaps not with quite the same passion and zeal that Simon has. XD
    After Crash (Which is the only single of theirs that I absolutely did NOT like.), I was really hoping for another dip back into the Warrior/Power elements of their music. You know, something hardcore and powerful. Something angry and grungy and just a blast to listen to with the volume cranked and the bass on high. Like Simon, I was somewhat
    disappointed to hear that B.A.P was going to release a new single, only to be met with… a cutesy lovey-dovey song…? It’s not a terrible song, mind you, I actually find it quite catchy. But it’s just… so not the B.A.P I was looking forward to. Instead of grimaces and snarls I was met with smiles and aegyo. The only thing that links this back to Warrior is the blond hair, which has somehow made a mysterious comeback. :’D At least this time around I can tell their faces apart.
    Objectively though, I really don’t dislike the song or the video. If you take B.A.P (Bad-ass Punks, in this case.) and my expectations out of the equation this song is actually pretty decent. It’s still not my favorite, but it’s one I don’t mind listening to if it comes on. Plus, the music video was really cute. I loved the quirkiness of it and the way it takes you awhile to muse over it and decide what you think the story behind it was. I mean, come on, it actually had a STORY! It was riddled with childish humor and whimsy that really made it fun to watch; it reminded me of watching cartoons when I was little. So yeah, overall I really did enjoy the music video… even if it wasn’t filled with the ‘Warriors’ I expected.
    We must be seeing their ‘Bunnies Are Puffy’ B.A.P side this time around, I suppose. ;D

  36. I’m a really big B.A.P. fan, but I feel the same way about this as I do “Crash”. I mean, they’re not bad songs, they’re just not for me. I still watch their lives for these songs because the boys are always so entertaining, though.

      same. right. somehow they’ll always manage with their nice performances to make the song fine.
      I didn’t really like Crash but by watching the performances it ended up growing on me. and i think the same thing will probably happen with Stop It. I really don’t like it, the song is so basic and generic (they could have done a light and fresh and pop song but with more B.A.P ‘vibes’ idk this one is so… empty and common ?) but i think it’ll probably end up growing on me too by watching the live performances.
      I might be one of the only one but i think that more the song it really is the mv that i deeply dislike about Stop It. I watched it once and i never wanna watch it again. X(

    Simon, I don’t want to see you Bubble Pop-ing in a bath tub in leather underpants/one-piece but I still want Ice Cream to be reviewed cos of the Engrish-ness. xD

    And I liked B.A.P’s video, the cuteness suits them fine, but I didn’t like the song at all. Even though their singing was fine it just … wasn’t my kind of song.

    Personally I think it’s perfectly fine for a group to expand their repertoire though, just like SHINee; they don’t stick to one thing, and I don’t see why any group needs to. They pull cute off perfectly fine. I’m sorry you think of them as badass, but if you see them BTS they’re not really badass at all so … yeah. I like their badass image the most too, but I don’t see why they need to stick to it. Anyway, lets face it, Warrior and Power sounded pretty much the same, and No Mercy did sound different but it was still similar but I didn’t really like it much, compared to Warrior and Power which I loved. But if they kept making the same kind of music, it just aint gonna work. :/ Eventually you need a little change.

    Lastly, for a cute video is was kinda original if you ask me; at least it had a story going on! Always good to see.

  38. ps i thought BAP was gonna be the next Big Bang but im so not liking this vid… either

  39. i will never vote harder for a video to make it to MM then I will for Ice Cream. Even more than I would for a Big Bang Video and I am a super duper BB fan. Also I was soooo not happy that Simon didnt get a dreadlock mullet for Last Music Monday so he HAS to make up for it by wearing leather underwear in a bath tub and ruining my eyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I actually liked the BAP video. Don’t get me wrong, I liked them way better as their badass aggressive image, but I could imagine this side too. Whenever I see them in interviews, they’re such adorable little derps so I think this video kind of shows what their personality is actually like.
