Infinite “Man In Love” – Vote for it Here!

 

GOLD I TELL YOU! GOLD! We thought about what we could say for a Music Monday on Infinite’s “Man In Love.” I don’t even think we’ll mention the song at all, or their dance. The video is just…the video…so much…good stuff…so much…overdosing on potential. You ever see those “Everything that’s wrong with *Insert Blockbuster Movie Title* in under 4 Minutes” videos on YouTube? Those are hilarious and – quite frankly – exactly what we do when we watch movies in the theatre. Makes more maximum lols. We have a similar approach for Music Mondays. This Infinite video…we could talk about for more than 4 minutes, that’s for sure :D

I hope we’re not sounding as if we don’t like the video. We’re just saying that we can have fun here, and we giggled to ourselves a lot thinking about the video. So vote for it!

GLAM “In Front of the Mirror” – Vote for it Here!

 

Now this is a pretty different music video. The lyrics kind of remind me of 2NE1′s “Ugly”, not in a “oh GLAM copied 2NE1″ kind of way, but in the sense that they are both talking about girls feeling un-pretty. I’d like to see kpop idols talking about this more often because it is pretty much the kpop idol industry that makes average Korean girls feel like crap. I’m not saying the idols themselves are doing it, I’m saying the way the industry presents them makes people feel like crap. It’s exactly the same in other parts of the world with models and celebs being airbrushed and photoshopped into a level a perfection that doesn’t actually exist, except in Korea, a lot of the models and celebs ARE kpop idols. Anyways, point is, it’s an interesting topic they’re dealing with, but I don’t LOVE the music video which I thought could have been a bit more powerful. For example, even though they removed some makeup (lipstick doesn’t count as removing makeup in my book), you could still tell they were wearing makeup, and I though it ended in a really awkward unresolved way with the manager (who was he?) coming in and them awkwardly leaving. You check it out and let me know if you feel the same way!

Heo Young Saeng “The Art Of Seducation” – Vote for it Here!

 

We’re so torn, guise. We’ve never reviewed Heo Young Saeng. We’ve never done anyone from SS501 before, and it’d be great if we can show them some love. They’re before our time, I’ll admit, and we know next to nothing about them, but we do know that if anything ever comes out by anything by them, you guise always do a great job of promoting them on our site.

We still don’t understand their situation as a band. We said before, incorrectly, that they disbanded, and that upset some people. Sorry about that, guise! Supposedly they didn’t disband. They’re just all on different labels now, but they’re not making music together. If you ask me, that sounds like disbandment. I think the more accurate thing to say is that they stopped making music together, but they’re not publicly adverse to making music together in the future, right? Whatever the details may be, we’re not sure. What we are sure about, though, is that this video and Infinite’s video have a wealth of things we can talk about, and would be great fun to review for Music Monday, as opposed to other videos that are more difficult for us to talk about. Not naming any names here.

  1. Brittainy

    Ermahgerd ther nerwherl beekins ert mirdneert!!

  2. Wow…The Art of Seduction reminds me of an aegyo Misery (American horror film). It was interestingly odd…

  3. Wow, girl’s are dominating the charts ^o^ Fighting !!!

  4. Hi people, I’ve been reading the comments here, and was wondering… what’s Mordney? :D

  5. I want a ‘Martina-kidnaps-Simon-and-holds-him-hostage-hilarously’ skit. RIGHT MEOW. Yes Dr. Meemersworth, preach.

  6. Isn’t it “bacon” not “beacon”…? And the narwhal bacons at midnight!

  7. Oh the possibilities with the Infinite song!!! I look forward to seeing Meemers in the video (if it is chosen). I kind of felt sorry for the cat in the video. THAT BOX DIDN’T HAVE ANY AIR HOLES, MAN!!! Good thing he took the lid of the box when he did!

    I see that Mr. Brohoho has stuck again with GLAM’s video. They need to find a new brick wall to shoot in front of.

  8. At first I didn’t get it and heard “beacon” XP
    ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beacon )

  9. The message GLAM is giving is that when we take off our makeup and pretty clothes, we can feel good, but media will always strike again and bring us back to covering up. Instead of it being a full on ‘you shouldn’t change’ video, it’s more of a ‘perfection hurts. Society is cruel’ video/song. It’s showing the bad side, and how much it affects people. In a sense, seeing how awful society is, and how much we ridicule ourselves should make us understand everyone is like this, and that we should stand up to it, right?

  10. AT MIDNIGHT MARITNA!!!!! The Narwhal Bacons at Midnight!!!!! Geesh, doesn’t everyone know that! (Please note the sarcasm in my tone of…er…words…Leave it to Simon to know about the ‘secret’ identification phrase.) ;)

  11. I know I’m pretty much the tiniest minority on this site, but I hope to hell you guys review Girl’s Day. They’ve never gotten a real chance before D;

    A man can hope, right?

  12. IM SO TORN!!! i LOVED infinite’s comeback, and I’ve never really listened to SS501 but HOLY JESUS THAT VIDEO WAS THE BEST THING IV’E EVER SEEN!! if you don’t review one, could you PLEASE do it some other time! Both are just so amazing but I cant choose between something so hilarious and my infinite boys! :D either way the review will be awesome! <3 from canada

  13. I really liked the sound of the Glam song but I didn’t get it either.

  14. This comment section has made me dislike my fandom even more than I already have started not liking it. :/

    • cheer up :) unfortunately, in every fandom, you will meet people who like the same things/songs/people as you that you might butt heads with. Few people actually judge a band based on their fans.

    • What Terri below said is true. Everyone is different and has different ways of dealing with things. Just because you like the same band doesn’t mean you all will think the same way.

      Just take a deep breath, step away from the computer and go do something fun. Sometimes that break away from the ‘digital world’ can give you a fresh perspective on things.

  15. YoungSaeng ~!! ><
    Infinite can keep first place for another week~!!

    And about SS501's situation… it's like you said, they are not making music together, they are doing soiloist for now, but they will be back together~!!! just like Shinhwa D: so…it upset us (TripleS fandom) when people in general (not just you, S&M) say SS501 has disbanded since it sounds like they will never be back together, that's all. Then please…just don't mention it? just say Young Saeng is doing solo for now, as well as all the other members~

  16. I’m torn on which of these 3 I like the best. I like Glam’s the best as a song. I like Infinite’s a lot because of the adorable kitten. I like The Art of Seduction because of the crazy obsessed fangirl. xD Narwhal’s are the best~

  17. I’m also for Young Saeng~^^
    INFINITE will hold on top for the next week but he probably won’t >.<

  18. Sounded like Simon was saying “beacon”?
    Anyway, the narwhal bacons at midnight.

    Martina, y u no Reddit? :-=

  19. Plz do Heo Young Saeng “The Art Of Seducation” one day for KPop Music Mondays. PLZ :) so live that song.

  20. i did not get that bacon joke… >_>

  21. Come onnnn Simon, Martina~ I am quoting Teen Top here: “You know you want it.. how does it sound?~” xD
    Please Heo Young Saeng for this week’s KMM! >.<

  22. I’m so happy you talked about GLAM,they are really one of the most talented and different rookies.Too bad the video was meh but the song is amazing ^^

  23. I think both Infinite’s and Young Saeng’s videos could be great subjects for KMM…I mean, the first one has those funny/dumb looking men in love (even if I didn’t understand the cat part) and the second one has the scary blond-wiged kidnapper that reminds me of “Misery must not die” XD…really this is a difficult choice…UoU

  24. Thank you for including In Front of the Mirror on this week’s update!

    I’ve seen some comments about Glam’s video saying, “Why are they singing about not being pretty when they obviously are pretty? That doesn’t work.”

    Actually, in my opinion, that’s the point of the song: those girls may very well be pretty in the eyes of everyone else, but in their own eyes, they are not pretty. When they look in the mirror, all they are able to perceive are their own physical flaws. To correct what they see as imperfections, they wear make-up, wigs, and push-up bras. It’s a confident facade that they put on to hide how insecure they truly feel about themselves.

    Again in front of the mirror
    In front of my face
    My pride is crumbling once again
    “I’m so pretty, I’m so awesome”
    I say those useless monologues
    And I’m falling down, I’m falling down
    The tears keep endlessly falling
    The thorn-like truth prickles me – that I’m not pretty

    They need to convince themselves that they are pretty, and until they actually believe that, no matter how other people see them, they will always see them themselves as not pretty.

    I agree that the end of the MV with the wink and the manager is a strange ending. As for the the song itself not ending on a positive note, I actually think it’s more realistic that it doesn’t. What, were they suddenly supposed to look in the mirror and stop seeing whatever physical hang-ups they have that they feel insecure about? There was no catalyst for that change scripted into the song or MV. As such, though it would have been more positive if the girls suddenly started cavorting in public without wearing any make-up, etc., I think the song remained closer to reality by showing them carrying on with the same hidden insecurities.

  25. After all I don’t think this system is going to work… if you guise want to end this “vicious circle of hate”…

    ♥♥ ♥ ♥

    • It would happen regardless, trust me.

      • yeah but… the new system is going to “put some more wood in the fire” and things could get bigger and more stressful not only for Simon and Martina but for me(for us) as well…so I guess I should have refrased… to end that’s kind of impossible but to reduce it is more possible…

        • Well, I’m really grateful that they decided to change the system; even if it was only to get more girls on the charts (and more male viewers).
          And now the fanwars have somewhat decreased, since people can redirect their hate towards S&M if they lose; instead of towards the winning group. S&M said they’re willing to endure the hate if it means more balanced reviews, so if it’s fine with them, it’s fine with me. We can cheer up S&M, but we can’t stop fanwars.
          I’ve also noticed a more positive and hopeful attitude amongst the smaller groups on the charts, because they now realise that they have a chance if they can just reach 3rd place. So I’d say that they main people who are at a disadvantage are fans of semi-popular boy bands.

        • “S&M said they’re willing to endure the hate if it means more balanced reviews, so if it’s fine with them, it’s fine with me.” that doesn’t confort me though… even when ppl say they’re ok they kind of turn not being ok without them even realising it… I can sense the tense atmosphere like from miles away…

        • Hey hey don’t just ignore the bit I said about cheering up S&M!! I send them encouraging emails regularly for a reason!!

        • I didn’t ignore it… even if you cheer someone, you can’t help it from being worried… at least I can’t(I sent them tweets :P)

        • Well….what do you suggest we do then? :/

        • I say we change the system back… or maybe do a bigger kpop-chart update? so more groups could be included… :S

        • ………….

          *sigh*
          It was good talking to you.

        • did you read my message again? I re-edited it… (‘_’)

        • I did, sorry. I re-edited my comment too ^^b

        • “Most people just don’t watch that far.” Well maybe…if they are interested in knowing S&M’s oppinion on the song and video …they’ll watch further

          “…they said the Updates are essential in encouraging people to vote, and introducing lesser known but interesting videos.” I agree with them that they introduce lesser known videos but encourage to vote…uhm… on the last minute there isn’t much difference… most of the times it wasn’t
          P.S: you shouldn’t have gone to the extend of cutting “it was good talking to you” *pout*

        • I’m not just spouting out nonsense, those are things that S&M have told me and I’ve observed based on the youtubes stats and website usage stats. People do drop off videos/playlists over time, and the updates do do have a big effect on chart votes – they also remind people that it is still the fans that determine what ranks the videos are in. Do you really need to see my correspondence history with S&M in order to believe me? Or would you not believe that either :/

          PS. Hey, I cut it out because it basically meant ‘I have nothing else to say to you, farewell’. Just like ‘It was nice knowing you’ can also mean ‘farewell forever’ = aka the person is gonna die ._. lol but if you insist I can put it back in ;p

        • I didn’t mean it like that… I guess I forgot for a second you’re a “mod”…
          *sigh*(I give up)
          ok…sorry for keeping you further into this discussion… you must be busy. ごめん なさい.

        • No it’s ok…the only reason I talked to you is cos you’re a long time Nasty and I feel I know you and stuff….otherwise I just leave people alone :p

        • ;_; *hugglllleeeesss* I need to run stream >.)

        • NANAandLIZZYfanatic

          Fanboys rejoice!

        • Just riding on your comment because I read the rest of this thread down. Wanna apologize for my part (albeit it was a short one) in heightening emotions around here yesterday :/ Stepping away from the computer works, lol. And watching K-variety shows. :P

  26. I understand SS501 fans’ position, but with the new system, it doesn’t make any sense for inspirits to give up voting on Infinite this week, when Simon and Martina can choose to review Youngsaeng if they want this week anyway. Besides, the majority of SS501′s fans won’t stick around to vote for Infinite next week, even if a few promise to. Why would they bother if they don’t like the group? Sympathy voting just doesn’t work. That is my opinion. Infinite does not always get reviewed, neither of Inifinite-H’s songs were reviewed, nor was BTD or Sunggyu’s I Need You… Just vote for the MV you want to get reviewed, there’s no other way.

  27. in short: SS501 is in hiatus and they decide to go SOLO for the time being..and they promise us that they will comeback as 5 again someday~ SO they are NOT DISBANDED… ^_^
    please review SS501 member Heo Young Saeng!! you know how much it means to us…if you’ve read our comment on his MV :)
    and like you said you never did a review on any of them..so this is a great start!! ^o^

  28. I would be so happy if you reviewed Youngsaeng! I’m sure Infinite can hold the top spot for another week.^^;
    SS501 was the first kpop group I listened to and it nearly broke my heart when they stopped promoting together….and well, technically they’re not disbanded, when they started doing solo activities they announced they wanted to come together as a group again sometime in the future…but now Kyujong enlisted in the military and the others haven’t done their military service as well. so by now, I don’t really believe in a reunion anymore .___.
    but some of the members sometimes post pictures together on twitter, so it’s not like they don’t get along anymore ^^

    I’d love to see KMM for GLAM, they have always such meaninful yet funny songs and mv’s. For lyrics I think that it’s about contradiction: you think that you’re quite pretty in your own way but when you look at mirror you keep seeing all your flaws and parts you don’t like and this voice in your head just starts saying that you aren’t pretty at all. In mv you can see how they are insecure about their looks: filling up their bra so that boobs would appear bigger, thinking of being too fat cause the shirt rips.. but in the end they just smile at mirror and keep doing poses, trying to believe that they are actually pretty. So I think from start they don’t feel that pretty at all but as the mv goes on they start believing it.

    Although I love the mv and song I agree that some kind of clear enpowerent would be nice. And the make-up removal scene would be much better if they actually removed their make-up and appeared bare-faced.

  30. Despite being a big SS501NFINITE fan, I would love it if you reviewed Young Saeng’s MV first (*coughcauseheismyultimatebiascough*). INFINITE has a strong-ish fanbase here on EYK, but Triple S will surely be beaten out by others if the MV remains any longer. ;~; And Saengie’s MV is really a video with just as much KMM potential as INFINITE’s vid.

    I guess the comments here has said it all, but to sum up what really happened with SS501 for the other newbie K-pop fans: Their 5-year contracts with DSP Media had expired in 2010, but they can’t renew their contracts cause DSP is a jerk so they moved to different smaller companies to start afresh with their solo work to “improve”, so one day in the future they can comeback together as 1 with a better skills to show. Hence, their name “SS501″ – “Super Stars 5 united as 1 forever” is still alive and THEREFORE THEY ARE NOT DISBANDED.

    Actually, is it a coincidence or fate that after SS501′s 5th anniversary in 2010, INFINITE just happened to debut the next day? O.O” Scary. SS501′s debut day is 8th June 2005, and INFINITE is 9th June 2010. OuOv

  31. Simon and Martina! Triple S (SS501 fandom name) here, I will now explain to you the situation as to the stuff with SS501.
    They are doing solo activity. They all agreed that they wanted a chance to do Solo songs to prove themselves as soloists as well and also to have easier chances to do acting jobs.
    Rumor has it that DSP wouldn’t sign them all on again and so they all decided to sign onto other companies with the promise that they would come back together as 5 again.
    They often talk about each other and perform SS501 songs at their concerts.
    When Kyu Jong had his fanmeet before leaving to go to the military, all 5 members attended the event and made their promise to the fans that they would come back as one.

    So the reason we don’t say they are disbanded is because the members themselves told us they aren’t disbanded.

    What you can say is: Heo Young Saeng a Member of SS501 has released another solo album.

    Its like I guess you could say their solos would be how you describe JYJ’s solos. They are still part of the group they just are doing solo activity.

    • I’ve heard the rumor too about DSP and supposedly they didn’t want KyuJong but I don’t know how reliable that is. The guys have never said anything about it. And quite honestly I’m not sure about it, because Hyunjoong seems to have a good relationship still with DSP. He went to support AJAX before their debut (since they’re fans of SS501 and admire them etc) and I don’t know if he would have done that if they tried to get rid of a member. The guys are like brothers to each other and I don’t see Hyunjoong playing nice with DSP if that was true. Of course I could be wrong and he could just be a polite guy and all that. But DSP and the guys did part on a good note and they were allowed to keep the SS501 name and also I assume their older songs since they have performed them solo. When Hyunjoong went to Peru recently he sang some older SS501 songs like from BOF. Lee Hyori also left DSP a short time before SS501 did and if I’m remembering correctly she, YoungSaeng and KyuJong are all at the same management place.

      • Yes B2M (Same company as Eric Nam and Spica as well) is Hyori, Young Saeng and Kyu Jong’s company. One of my friends described it as like a sister agency haha. Young Saeng and Kyu Jong even still have SS501′s manager.
        And I don’t think anybody knows the truth there but whatever it is. I think not being in DSP benefits them all.
        Honestly I think its because they didn’t want to stay in DSP because they knew the companies wouldn’t be able to focus on them well. Because let’s face it DSP doesn’t really have multitasking with promoting it seems. Just look how long it took them to give Rainbow a comeback.
        But on the other hand because of this reason none of the other agencies would take all 5 of them in. Because really, the name SS501 was too big back then (and I would hope still is) that signing all 5 members would be too expensive.

  32. PLEASE PLEASE PLEEAAASSEEE review Art of Seduction. We all know infinite will be in the top 3 next week. But Triple S are kind of a small fandom amongst your fans, but we are super dedicated too. Its not first but its still in the top 3.

    ~Sincerely a 2 year long Nasty

  33. You guys should just have a segment on making skits.

  34. I don’t understand… With the level of aegyo and flowerboyishness of Man In Love, I’m supposed to hate the video… But I kind of enjoyed it… Maybe it goes too fast to really hurt the eyes… Or maybe I’m just badly KPop infected… Anyways, it would be an awesome KMM.

    The Art of Sedudction too, though. And it could have a creepy showdown against Kan Mi Young. Yeay! I hope it gets reviewed this week, since Infinite will most likely be still in first place next week, and even if it’s not, you’ll review it. What will you choose to do? I won’t have be around till Friday, so I’ll have to deal with the suspens nearly one more week!

    For Glam, well; I guess we have to translate “not pretty” by “not perfect”. 2NE1 in Ugly weren’t ugly either. It’s just about how they feel: “I’m maybe not pretty for you, not pretty enough for an idol, but I feel pretty and I don’t care”.

    • Oh like the One where she kidnapped Joon or the one where she stalks Hyung Jun and then locks him in a trunk?

      • I was thinking of the one where she kidnaps Joon, but it’s true that she’s often a creepy stalker!

        • She was totally doing a theme, which is really cool on her part ^u^

        • LittlePinky82

          Kan Miyoun has had a few songs out. The first one she had out (in more recent times) was “Crazy” with Mir and Joon of MBLAQ. Mir had a rap in the song and Joon was the guy she was obsessed with. In “Paparazzi” is the one where she was obsessed with Hyungjoon. She had another really nice song out called “Sunshine” with Jun K of 2pm (and he produced the song too). “Sunshine” kinda stopped her crazy theme for a bit…

    • You mean Kan Miyoun? I don’t think there is a “g” at the end of her name unless it’s a translation thing. But you’re talking about her song “Papparazi.” She’s my idol so yeah and a former Babyvox member. Babyvox used to be like how SNSD is now haha. But yeah I could see that too cause that was a good stalker mv. She chased after Hyungjoon lol.

  35. I’ve been furiously voting for Heo Young Saeng! I would be so happy to see his mv on KMM :D But I’ll still support your final decision because I know I’ll still enjoy watching your video ^_^

  36. i think as far as GLAM’s “In Front Of the Mirror” video goes, i think what they’re trying to get at is that you don’t have to be society-standard pretty in order to FEEL pretty????? i’m not really sure. because like when they were wearing make-up and all that jewelry and stuff they looked really upset and unsatisfied and stuff, but when they took off all the make-up and “flashy” clothes, they became happier.

  37. thisisjustforfunval

    And Simon I love ya but I kept hearing you say beacon not zee bacon.

  38. i am so confused. Bacon? I googled it and dictionary.com-ed it. The only bacon that comes up is the food bacon.
    Bacon? is this a canadian word?

  39. Can we have meemers pick clothes for Simon, please

  40. This is from Wiki talking about SS501 Although its members signed under different companies, SS501 as of 2011, has retained its name. All of the members’ new companies have stated that SS501′s activities are top priority in their contracts.] All members have also stated that the group has definitely not disbanded. Kim Hyun-joong explained in an interview that, at the time, there wasn’t a company that would accepted them as a whole, thus the group decided to take the chance to focus on their solo activities

  41. I haven’t read the lyrics, but when I was watching Glam’s video, it looked like they were gradually changing out of the image they were told to have into their real selves, what they were confident in, and in the manager lets them leave like that, in sneakers instead of high heels, with less makeup, etc. At least that was my take on it.

  42. About SS501 I’m not that familiar with them. But I know them because of Kim Hyun Joong and KiBum’s brother (former Ukiss member) i don’t know about their disbandment i don’t think because of financial problems.. or just because they are aging hahaha Joke.. But still support him I find him really cute

  43. I love GLAM <3 but this song doesn't do well for me. I love their previous song which is more powerful

    • I was bummed “I Like That” didn’t make it high enough to get reviewed because that would have been KMM *GOLD*. Though I am happy to see them getting any wider recognition at all, they are my favorite nugus.

  44. guise i would really really really really love if you did heo young saeng………coz i know infinite can hold onto no i1 next week too but i dont think triple s can hold on any longer…..specially if u think abt it after not being able to be reviewed teen top dropped to no.8…..i dont want to sound rude.And teen top has a bigger following among your fans than ss501 or hys…..so i dont think we will be able to hold on to it another week.plz guise

  45. The Narwhal bacons at midnight. Bacons not beacon… Simon, I believed in you. (.__. )

  46. thisisjustforfunval

    My votes for Heo Young Saeng! I really think the video is hilarious, in it’s you know creepy fan kidnapping way. Plus I’d honestly love to see a member of SS501 reviewed on KMM! They are how I got into and feel in love with kpop to begin with :)

    I’m honestly really glad to see Heo Young Saeng on a Kpop Chart Update, I can’t lie. Thank guys.

  47. Infinite fans will be able to hold first place for another week, and I’m interested in what you could do with The Arrt of Seduction

    • Bullship, I want it reviewed ASAP because who knows how many videos are coming out in the next week and how many of them are going to make it to the top 3.

      • Nah, Infinite fans are good :) and S&M will definitely review them in the second week, like they did with U-Kiss, IMO. I just want to see a few new artists mentioned on the KM every now and then :)

        • millie102685

          No, I’m not voting for them so that they can be skipped over. HYS can wait if Infinite can wait.

        • You make my heart hurt T~T We have never been reviewed. This is actually the first time one of the members of SS501 has even been on kpop chart update…

        • millie102685

          All of you people fail to realize that Nu’est has never been reviewed either and they are constantly in the top.
          Besides, S&M have the option of reviewing any of the songs in the top 3. HYS can be just as easily skipped over as Infinite.

        • Inspirit13elieve

          You’re being a huge hypocrite.
          If you’re able to realize that neither fandoms have had a review, why can’t you just be polite about it?
          You look awfully immature like this.
          In your other comment, ” HYS can wait if Infinite can wait.”
          Are you just that dumb? Are you new to Kpop? These votings? No shit infinite has more fans to vote and keep them in first place.
          The Chaser held first for 3 weeks, so stop getting your panties in such a tight knot and making inspirits look like immature, rude, spoiled brats.

        • millie102685

          Look up a few comments and realize that Natz would like us to stop and I can’t respond to you as I would love to.

        • Inspirit13elieve

          One of the most immature inspirits I have seen in a while.
          Aight, I hope I don’t have to see your dumb comments in the future :D

          I’m sorry but there is no reason for you to say hurtful things like this either. You’re being unnecessarily rude, she hasn’t said anything hateful so there is no need to say thing like this. Can mods just remove this whole thing?

        • Inspirit13elieve

          ” unnecessarily rude, she hasn’t said anything hateful so there is no need to say thing like this.”
          Um…have you read her comments?
          It’s justified. I’m not one of those, “two wrongs don’t make a right.” people so your comment wont really apply to me.

        • millie102685

          Look up a few comments and realize that Natz would like us to stop and I can’t respond to you as I would love to. And yet you respond when I am clearly telling you that you shouldn’t.

        • Gee, harsh much bro? o.0″ Compared to INFINITE, such an old and forgotten band like SS501 does not have many fans here, let alone ONE member only.

        • sssshhhh careful where you’re stepping >_<

          lol like Shinhwa, you'd be surprised how many SS501 fans are still around. They seem to be especially numerous on this site – I see a flood of them everytime a member releases something ^^;

        • millie102685

          As an Inspirit, it really doesn’t matter to me. Did you know that there were 4 videos that Infinite sub-unit/duet released since January? And that one of the didn’t even get put onto the chart? And that none of the four got reviewed? This is, of course, not counting that one song Sunggyu released that didn’t get reviewed.
          I know you think SS501 doesn’t get much love but then again, Inspirits only really invest about a week into voting. So if you don’t like it, I’m sorry, but I’m not going to lie and say I don’t care if HYS gets reviewed over Infinite.

        • Chill pill, you need one. And this is why. As long at Eat Your Kimchi is doing music monday. They have never reviewed one of SS501′s songs. Not one of the 4 music videos that Kim Hyun Joong released in Korea, Not one of the now 4 Music Videos from Young Saeng, Not one of the 2 mvs from Kyu Jong, Not one of the 3 mvs from Kim Hyung Jun and note one of the 2 Mvs from Jung Min. That is a total of 15 chances to review mvs from SS501 members.

          Stop acting like such a victim. You said “I love how people are getting upset about me saying no. I’m not cursing,”
          But saying “bullship” was pretty close and also people aren’t as upset as you think. *blinks* Then you pointed out the event with Nu’est.

          Nu’est has had a total of what 3 mvs? Your argument is invalid.

        • millie102685

          No my argument isn’t invalid. It’s just irrelevant to you. Just like your argument is irrelevant to me. Think about that for a second. Bullship=/=bullshit.

        • This is a second warning…

        • Julie Barkun

          Hey, how about instead of arguing about this, we team up? Whichever MV isn’t voted in this week, Triple S and Inspirits will work together to get it in next week :) Since both sides are so worried about their MV not lasting another week in the charts, if we work at it together then both MVs have a good chance. No need to fight here. Infinite and SS501 are both under-represented on EYK, so we’re in similar boats.

          I’ve already said multiple times that, as a Triple S, I’d willingly give my votes to Infinite in thanks to all the nice and awesome Inspirits who have been supporting YoungSaeng in the charts. And from the comments in all these different posts, I’m not alone.

        • millie102685

          look down one comment and realize that Natz would like us to stop and I can’t respond to you as I would love to.

        • Ok guys, I am stepping in here. You need to calm down and stop fighting about this. Instead concentrate on voting for the next hour. Quarelling about this here is not going to make any difference because in the end the decision comes down to Simon and Martina and what they decide to choose.

          So, take a deep breath and go have a Inspirit/ Triple S love fest in those threads and contribute to the points over there. This way, whoever is not chosen for the Kpop Music Monday will still keep working on building their points for the next week.

        • Inspirit13elieve

          OH WHOOPED DE DO. Your life as an inspirit must be so hard! A sub unit didn’t get reviewed! OMG! D:
          Note my sarcasm.
          It’s a fucking sub unit, get a grip. Even fans care about sub units less and the public does too.
          Just because it’s a sub unit, doesn’t mean it has to be reviewed like their group videos. Infinite has been reviewed before. That is that. Stop being such a hypocrite, I can’t even take you seriously!!

        • millie102685

          I’m not asking you to do anything but look down a few comments and realize that Natz would like us to stop and I can’t respond to you as I would love to.

        • Thanks. I am on the verge of deleting this whole thread because it seems like people can’t help but argue and be snippy and rude.

        • Why not? It’s such a mess already.

        • Already started.

        • Hey there, I don’t know if you are aware but here on EYK we go by commenting guidelines. The first of which is Be Respectful. If you can’t be respectful, then don’t post it here because the Mods are Watching and we don’t tolerate much of it. I have already warned several people in this comment thread already. Please refrain from saying rude and inflammatory things or your comments will be deleted and your account will be banned. Thank you.

        • Oh yowch. Okay, I get that that’s your opinion and what you intend to do. I just think maybe it could’ve also been phrased better, but that’s just me. Bottom line, i think it’s a “may the best man [for the week at least] win” kinda situation :)

          I’ve been voting for Infinite coz well, I think it’s an AWESOME song. It’s a perfect WAKE UP GET YER BUTT OUTTA BED kinda tune, and I just love its happy vibe.

          I know nothing of Art of Seduction, but now I’m intrigued reading all these supportive comments on it. :) *heads over to the music video*

        • millie102685

          I love how people are getting upset about me saying no. I’m not cursing, I’m not saying The Art of Seduction sucked, I’m just simply stating that I don’t want Infinite to be skipped over. If that’s harsh then all of those people that disagreed must have a really hard time on the internet.

        • Oh, i’m totally fine with you disagreeing and saying no, you don’t want Infinite skipped over. Hence my second sentence about it. :) I guess I just felt like the “no” could’ve been less harsh. (Hence my saying “yowch”) Again, that’s just me. And yeah, if it’s a sign of my all-too-tender heart, haha, well there you go. I kinda felt for the poster who was asking for SS501 votes and who was rejected, kwim? I’m sorry you felt I was upset with you.

          I understand those who want Infinite for KMM and I understand those who want other artists. All sides are valid. I had gone to watch Art of Seduction and commented about it because I liked it, but prior to today I’d been voting steadily for Infinite.

        • millie102685

          How does one say no succinctly without saying “no”? Please explain.

        • I’m not saying you have to vote for them at all! :P
          But HYS is at the stage where it’s about to fall in the charts, as it’s a week and a half old.
          But if you are worried that Infinite might get screwed over, vote ofr them :)

        • That linked me to this page..
          anyhow, not that the voting is closed for this week, I’ll be commenting on the Infinite page, to keep them in first place. and as I know very little about them, that means lots of comments (which means lots of points!)

        • Infinite was screwed over big time last year and so we’ve grown pretty adamant about getting our videos reviewed as soon as possible. The truth is a lot of Inspirits don’t really vote. They give it their best the first week or so but then the next week a lot of them tend to give up. We got lucky that Sunggyu released a video last year when there was barely any competition and if Infinite hadn’t won Best Potential MV, The Chaser would not have been reviewed at all. When Infinite H’s two music videos came out this year neither ended up getting reviewed even though they placed in the top 3 both times and held their spots for weeks.
          Inspirits were bitter when The Chaser wasn’t reviewed last year, and we are still bitter that ‘Special Girl’ wasn’t reviewed this year, so we don’t want the same thing that happened last time happen again. For these reasons you can see why some of us might act a bit aggressive ^^;;
          Please be understanding.

        • As a Triple S, I will try to rally others to vote for Infinite next week if it means we can have our precious Otter reviewed. I’m one of the main SS501 tumblr blogs, so really I can help.

        • What?? Nooo i am a TS and i kinda understand Inspirits, yeah some r acting kida rude but its ok they want infinite to get review why would they help us? its true i am not asking inspirits to help saengie i am just asking S&M to review hgeo young saeng if it happens great if not its ok personally i am not gonna die if it does not happens

        • Ok, I have already asked people down thread to stop being so rude.

          What you said at the end there is something everyone should take into consideration.
          …if it happens great if not its ok personally i am not gonna die if it does not happen.

        • I love Sunggyu’s 60seconds and wouldn’t have come across it but for S&M (I prefer it to the group version)
          I can understand why you guys are upset… I personally would like to see S&M’s take on the Art of Seduction, that’s all (and then Infinite – Meemers in a skit must happen!)

      • Whoa man. I’m an inspirit, but I’d much rather have this reviewed. This song is just so fabulous and the mv is really good.
        I’d prefer it’d be reviewed first. To be honest I prefer this song. I was hooked from first listen.

        I find it a bit selfish that people want it reviewed. Trust me, I was SUPER butt hurt last year with The Chaser, and even Special Girl. There’s less of a chance though of this holding in the top 3 next week.

        “who knows how many videos are coming out in the next week and how many of them are going to make it to the top 3.”
        The same can be said for this video. I’m sorry, but you’re making inspirits look immature with this comment.
        This is one of the positives of me basically stanning all kpop groups, I’m respectful to all potential video reviews.

        It’s pretty obvious that there are way more infinite fans that would vote for infinite, and not Young Saeng. So I don’t know why you’re so bitter.

        Like honestly, NU’EST have a much higher right to be pissed with this kind of stuff than Inspirits.

        • Isn’t everyone selfish then for wanting their favorite group’s video reviewed? I mean, when ‘Special Girl’ lost there was still “Without You” left for us to vote for but many of us recognized that there wasn’t enough content for it to make a good review and so we let others have that chance. The same happened with Sunggyu’s “I Need You”.

          Simon and Martina have already said they have a LOT to talk about this time and this is something new for Inspirits. This video is different from what they’ve done in the past, and I personally really want to have a good laugh for once.

          I don’t find anything immature about Millie’s comment either. She didn’t put down anyone else, she was just expressing her determination to get Infinite reviewed. There is always uncertainty about whether a video will stay in the top 3 because who knows what could happen in one week. Say we all decided to help Heo Young Saeng get reviewed this week but then someone else comes out with a good video and Infinite loses their chance completely. Inspirits have already gone through that many times, and before you say “well so have other groups”, what does that matter? Is that supposed to make us feel better? So just because other groups don’t get their videos reviewed we shouldn’t feel bad when ours don’t get reviewed? The times Infinite HAS gotten reviewed we had to go through a lot to achieve that. We had to wait nearly a year for The Chaser for goodness sakes.

          I don’t like the way you’re putting down Inspirits for wanting a review when that’s why ALL of us are here. So what if we have a slightly bigger group of people voting? Compared to a lot of other groups Inspirits are on the fewer side here too. Every time an Infinite video comes out we have to wait weeks for a review. So forgive us if when the odds are finally with us we don’t like to think of having to wait another week. Voting and getting reviewed has never been easy for us. It’s not easy for a lot of people, and that’s why I’d hope that you of all people would be more understanding since you’re a fan of multiple groups.

      i prefer girls day 1st….:)

    I think you should do Art of Seduction because you have already done an Infinite KMM, and I really want to hear your opinions on this MV and see you in crazy wigs ;) Also, I am pretty sure Infinite will be in the top 3 next week, but Heo Young Saeng probably won’t :( So you could always do Infinite next week!!! I really really hope you do Art of Seduction!!!!

    • That is true, sadly, about Saeng probably not being in the top 3 for much longer :( TripleS and Y.E.S are pushing hard, but there’s no doubt Infinite would last another week or longer if they weren’t reviewed, considering the MV just came out.

      So my vote’s on Art of Seduction too; not only has a SS501 mv never been reviewed (never made it to the top of the charts), this is the perfect MV for a review, with how crazy/creepy it is. I started giggling the moment I watched it, wondering what S&M’s take on the MV would be. It would really be sad if this never made it.

      • Sandra Darling

        Me too!!! When I watched it, I was instantly thinking of funny things Simon and Martina might do with this video. And I love SS501, and it would be so awesome if Heo Young Saeng could get reviewed. I know that I have gotten interested in several KPOP bands after watching KMM (I got into U-Kiss because of S&M), and maybe others would get interested in SS501! Besides, they could even throw in a Mordney joke (I miss Mordney). I know in at least a couple of SS501′s old songs, Mordney was present ;) He was in Unlock and I think Deja Vu.

        • MY GOSH, the good ol’ Mordney days…=’D U-KISS501 definitely had it the worst. ROFLMFAO!! XD

        • Julie Barkun

          Mordney’s AWESOME o/

          SS501 was my gateway to K-Pop, wayy back when Snow Prince came out. It kinda makes me sad that they debuted around the same time as legendary groups like TVXQ, SuJu and Big Bang, yet the vast majority of K-Pop fans know absolutely nothing about them. If they know something, it’s usually either because they think SS501′s disbanded or because HyunJoongie leader was in Boys over Flowers. This would be a nice reminder that yes, SS501′s still here, they’re still going strong, and they’re still making awesome music.

          TripleS are one of the more quieter and gentle fan-bases, we don’t cause trouble therefore we aren’t noticed xD;; It’s a double-edged sword, on the one hand we have an awesome rep, on the other hand…no one knows us or the boys LOL

        • I love Park JungMin aka ROMEO~^^ Give Me Your Heart is one ok my ultimate fav. Kpop (or Jpop actually?) songs and MVs~ :3

        • LittlePinky82

          Actually SS501 debuted a year before Big Bang. If you watch when Hyunjoong and Seungri were both on “Family Outing” they talk about their respective groups history and to that point. When BB debuted SS501 was in Japan promoting. SS501 has always had a rough time of getting out there (like with MBLAQ now imo) and have always relied on word of mouth and their talent to promote them. They were with DSP who didn’t do a great job like the other companies… So it would be interesting to see how they do when they do come back and if anyone will remember them. I’m sure people in Korea will, but international fans there have been so many new groups since then. And yes Triple S’s is known for the nicest fandom (which is a good thing imo) and the fandom has a good and respectful relationship with the guys. I’ve never heard of any real issues with sasaeng fans, at least not like with other groups.

        • LittlePinky82

          If you haven’t seen Hyunjoong on that “Family Outing” episode you should. It’s really cute. They play the BOF theme and he’s always like “not this again” lol but he’s cool and plays along. And Seungri tries to beat him at SOMETHING but always fails. By the end of the show he’s hanging onto Hyunjoong and calling him “hyung.” It’s really cute. He gave up on trying to beat Hyunjoong lol.

        • Julie Barkun

          :O I haven’t seen that Family Outing episode! I hope it’s on youtube lol :X LOL HyunJoong seems so tired of BoF xD

          And replying to your other comment, I’m really proud of TripleS’s awesome rep within fandoms. It’s something that I hope never goes away, even if SS501 gains more fans and becomes more popular again.

        • LOL I just bumped on DejaVu Mv recently and…. Mordney! I started laughing so hard! XD

      • you know, maybe it’s it only me but I thought Love Ya was reviewed somehow….or not? o.O But I clearly remember Martina talking abt their sexy back outfits! :P

        • LittlePinky82

          I don’t think it was reviewed, but it was in one of their video’s talking about dances.

  49. I demand a Meemers skit if ever Infinite wins this KMM. :))))

  50. thisisjustforfunval

    In simple terms uhm hum: SS501 are currently no longer promoting together. When their contracted ended they signed with separate labels but only as long as their respective new companies allowed them to reunite and be SS501 whenever they choose to in the future. They retained their title and on interviews each member still announces themselves as so in so from SS501. Like this “Hi I’m SS501 Heo Young Saeng.” But these are indeed their solo albums. Right now other than working on their solo projects they can’t unite as SS501 because Kyu Jong is in the military. :)

    • If one of the SS501 members was interviewed by S&M, it would both clear up the confusion about their situation and promote them amongst new k-pop fans :D Though reaching the boys to ask them to contact EYK is difficult…. :X

      • thisisjustforfunval

        I think they should interview Heo Young Saeng. He is in the same company as Eric Nam. This has been my thought since I found that piece of information out ^_^ Although I’m sure it is a lot harder to get interviews with Young Saeng. But hey a Nasty TripleS can dream right!

  51. Were Simon’s segments taped during the day and Martina’s later? There is so much white light bouncing around during his it hurt my eyes. During her segment the light was much softer.

    I see infinite possibilities for Meemers in the first video and I liked how the costume designer played with black and white patterns on their pants. The second video seemed like it was exploring the edges of subject rather jumping in cannonball style. Sometimes tiny, baby steps are the best you can hope for.

  52. Cyber_3

    While I’m sure that any of these three would make a good KMM, I would totally prefer ‘The Art of Seduction’ this week. This video is awesome and saesaeng (sp?) has so much potential for comedy. It’s extra creepy the way that Heo Young Saeng is even friendlier and more approachable in her imagination scenes. Besides, maybe I’m not spelling it right, but look at his name……..also, since I had seen “Hello Beautiful Bubble Love” again so recently, it really kind of made me go “NOOOOOOOO!” to Infinite’s music video.

    Cyber_3 – does the (apparently) international sign for “crazypants” LOL

  53. If you guys review Infinite, please talk about the song and the dance too, I really don’t like when you guys exaggerate in the jokes, like in the Dream Girl review… But that can just be me, I dont know.

    • I agree, Simon and Martina, if you ever review Man In love, cann you talkabout the dance and the song too? and not focus too much on the video? i know the videos all fluffy and lovey dovey and cute and all compared to other infinite music videos but i would like to listen to what you guy have to say about their famous 100% synchronised dance moves and how some members like sungjong and sungyeol improved ALOT, (im not exxagerating, sungyeol can actually sing in tune now while he couldnt even sing in the right pitch before) and the lyrics?????? buing buing?????

  54. Heo Young Saeng “The Art Of Seducation” I like this one more, it’s so funny. I’ve seen Infinite kpop monday already. So give Heo Young Saeng “The Art Of Seducation” some love ‘nasty’ ^^

  55. I’m super excited for Monday! I love these three songs!

  56. I loved all these songs but I would LOVE to see what Simon would do for girl’s day’s expectation. :D

  57. Aww, sorry that some people blew up about the whole SS501 thing. I think you can say that they temporarily disbanded. Or not disbanded at all considering they said that they want to do more music together again. Like, SS501 is there, they’re just not active right now; just focusing on doing solo stuff. ^_^ They are all close, so there is still a major possibility of being together again in the future. Late last year, one of the members, Park Jungmin said “We haven’t broken up, so we have the choice to come together anytime. Before Kyujong enlisted in the army, we all met up once. But right now, Kyujong is in the army, and all the members are in different situations. I can’t say anything for sure.”

    so yeah. ^_^ I’m a late TrippleS, because I just became a fan of them just last year! I love them lots, and although I see that it’s possible they never perform together again, I hope as much as any other TrippleS that they do get together again! ^_^

  58. I don’t know if this is sad or just a display of my “nastiness” but when I watched infinite’s man in love mv for the first time, I kept thinking “OMG Simon and Martina are so going to point this and that out!” and “this can be one of the BEST Music Monday reviews EVVVAARRR!!” ><

    • We laughed so much. It would be a lot of fun indeed :D

    • Cyber_3

      C’mon, if ever there was a drinking game for kpop cliches this is the music video that would put your lights out XD. It might have a lot of potential for lulz but maybe not for as original lulz? as the other top 3 videos since most of the opportunities here are things (as you say) S&M point out all the time. I’m torn.

  59. why do I get the feeling that most of those infinite skits have to do with meemers….that poor cat…

    • thisisjustforfunval

      Lol I thought the same thing when I saw the Scottish fold kitty pop out of the box. I’ve also always wondered if Simon and Martina know that Junsu has a Scottish fold kitty named Leo.

  60. Starsania

    I didn’t understand the narwhal comment either…So don’t feel bad Martina! Off to google it..
