BtoB “2nd Confession” – Vote for it Here!



If we ever do review this video or band, you better believe that you won’t hear the end of batooba. I refuse to call them anything else but that. BATOOBA! What’s with all the B name groups? What’s with all the alphabet names?

B to B
C Clown
D Unit
F Art

I feel like Kpop is being endorsed by kindergartens to try to teach kids their ABCs.

C Clown “Shaking Heart” – Vote for it Here!


Ok, so to provide a bit of balance here, Martina really this song, but I wasn’t blown away by it. Why? Spanishy guitars: that’s why! You might remember our review of MBLAQ’s Mona Lisa, where Martina really liked the song but I didn’t. Same thing here. Side note: does anyone else ever suffer from always mistyping MBLAQ as MBLAW? Personally, I think MBLAW sounds more badass. EM BLAOW! WHUT!

I did appreciate the dance sequence kinda silhouetted, where they retimed it all with fast and slow motion. That was cool. Otherwise, this wasn’t for me. But I’m only half of Simon and Martina, right? Maybe you side with Martina’s opinion more than mine?

Eatyourkimchi Crew “Eatyourkimchi Like a Man” – Vote for it Here!


What the eff? How did these guise make it on the charts? Do they even qualify as Kpop? Why not include Chad Future while we’re at it?

Ha! Anyhow, we included this because we thought it’d be funny. We didn’t think that it’d actually make it so high up on the charts. I guess…we might have no choice but to review it, right? Well, G-Dragon’s video is supposed to be out by the time this is published, and it’s gonna have a bunch of hours to demolish our KpopCharts, right? Kind of like how Psy got to the top in a few hours as well. I haven’t even heard GD’s song yet, though. Supposedly it’s really good live?

BUT IS IT AS GOOD AS EATYOURKIMCHI LIKE A MAN? Don’t be YG Biased, be SM biased. No, not SM like the famous, rich SM. SM like us SM, Simon and Martina, the not rich not famous brand. Support your local indie band! Well, we’re not really local either, but you know what I mean! Rookie groups deserve a chance too!

Side note: congrats to the winners of the K.Will CDs. Send us an email if you’re one of the winners (and don’t try to steal a winner’s CD, like someone did for the 300,000 subscriber giveaway. I’m side-eyeing you, cheater! You know who you are!)

  1. who won k.will’s cds? :O

  2. Martina! You’re so adorable!!

  3. Hi guises! I don’t know if this is really kpopish but, would it be possible to talk about this song? #Peepshow? I think it’s really creative and interesting!! Please just give it a chance and let me know!!I know it’s not such a new song but, I think it’s a pity it got under our radars!! This is not only for Simon and Martina the Nastiest royalty eva’ but, also for all the nasties out there!!!! =D


  4. To agree or disagree with Simon’s comments on EYK crew’s “Eatyourkimchi Like a Man”. The irony! I hope it’s not their last song though =)

  5. where is the winner :/ i cant find it ;___;

  6. OH MY GOD, JEREMY SCOTT!?!? I laughed SO HARD!!! XD I CAN KIND OF SEE IT, but no, Simon’s way hotter IMHO.

  7. Oh my GOD, Yes, C-Clown hit me with the same exact emotions as you described, Martina! I hadn’t ever given them much of a listen and I needed to fill my K-pop review quota and ended up hearing/seeing “Shaking Heart” and was BLOWN. AWAY. The sets and costumes are SO beautiful together, the layout of the song in general, keeping to a K-pop feel but MIXING IT UP in a way that I HOPE TO SEE MORE OF, and the vocals and raps themselves were super excellent! Absolutely nothing bad to say about it!! I can’t remember the last time I was blind-sided by a group like that!

  8. I cannot express how much I love you two :D

  9. I totally agree with Martina, C Clown’s Shaking Heart is like my new jam! Such a good song!

  10. HAHAHAHA Aegyo Martina style!!! She is so fickin adorable!!!

  11. OMG, MARTINA!! You are so cute I just wanna put you in my pocket!! *Goes to mirror to practice being just as cute* I’m pretty sure you could get a lot of free candy being that cute.

  12. “Do algebra like a bunny!”
    hahahaha I died at that part xD so funny!
    Andd C-Clown is really good :] definitely a group to look out for!

  13. BTOB only have a handful of songs, so it’s hard to say whether they have a “style” or not. “The 90s as brought to you by people who were born in the 90s” is their group concept, I think.

    What they do have, is hundreds and hundres of hours of behind the scenes and variety show footage. And that’s after a lot of editing! There must be thousands of hours of footage of these guys on some cutting room floor somewhere. Dudes are hilarious maniacs but it’d be nice if they got to put more of that energy into actual music stuff.

  14. OMG, I wuv Batooba!!! (Yes, they merit multiple exclamation points.) Now, I’m going to Youtube, Soompi and Wiki them, and change my mind every few days which one I like the best.

  15. “Martina really this song…” =)
    mad skills u gotz there guize :D

  16. BTOB is so big because it was in a k drama servant level 7 i believe

  17. LOLOL CCTV always watching XDDDDDDDD

  18. G Dragon’s video doesn’t have that many views or votes, but is currently in first place above Jay Park? That doesn’t seem right….

    • The Charts use an algorithm which takes into consideration the popularity and ‘freshness’ of a video. This algorithm takes into consideration the number of days a video has been on the chart. After the 8th day, the number of votes counted is decreased by a small percentage every day until day 25 when 0% of the vote are counted and the video ‘falls’ off the charts.

      GD’s song has only been on the charts for 2 days in comparison to Jay Park’s 10 days and thus Jay Park’s video is not as fresh and GD’s.

    • voting system counts votes for each day so if michi go gets more votes today than joah it gets to first place

  19. Oh! The lead singer of EYK Crew looks like Will Smith, like you said! I knew there was something familiar about that guy!

  20. martina is so adorable there! kekeke ^.^ and im gonna go for gd michi go because that mv is just crazyyyyy and it would be so fun to talk about! :D

  21. P.s: Love your bunny impersonation Martina ^^

  22. D-Unit it’s an “Unit” group that belongs to D-Entertainment so basically it’s the unit group that belongs to D-Entertainment.

    It would’ve been pretty cool if C-Clown were to be reviewed it’s a nice song.

    MBLAW XDD that sounds more like a baby trying to say MBLAQ :P

    And about reviewing your song…. that would be kind of boring to review your own song wouldn’t it…. I mean it’s funny (I even replayed it 5 times) but it’s kind of like a music artist singing his own song in the shower…. awkward right?

    This week’s KMM would be the “I-don’t-care-if-I-don’t-make-sense” edition with GD’s Michi Go and Martina’s makeup tutorial(if there’s gonna be one) will be the “clown” edition = . = … *sigh*

    Some part of me wishes to go back to the times you were living in Bucheon…

    ♥♥ ♥ ♥

  23. I don’t really wanted eyk crew to be review but now that gd came out and i really doN#T like his song i’d rather hear eyk review themselfs

  24. Was so happy to see that Simon used the mustache straw that I sent them to snuff his kimchi!

  25. thank you, Martina, for convincing me to give C-CLOWN a chance. i sort of made up my mind that i didn’t like their name so i wasn’t going to listen to their stuff, but then you (and Kpop Attack—i blame them too) showed me what i was missing, so yay!

  26. Omg c clowns song is my new favorite!

  27. “B to B
    C Clown
    D Unit
    F Art”
    I was just about to ask about F Art! Did they transform into EYK Crew? Or are they separate bands? Or is F Art a subunit of EYK Crew? No, wait… a subunit shouldn’t be older than the whole group. But maybe this SM Entertainment are hipsters and promoted a subunit prior to the regular band before it was cool.

    I like “2nd Confession”, it’s perfect for spring :) And “Shaking Heart” is pretty good, I especially liked the dance but the song is growing on me as well. But EYK Crew have the best outfits.

  28. please do Joah….you can do GD next week!!!

  29. he way you pronounce BTOB is funny

  30. i actually thought my phone started to ring whilst watching c-clown’s “shaking heart” so i paused it and was frantically trying to find it in the mess of my room X_X

  31. Bunny Martina is super cute! ^^

  32. by virtue of the fact that clowns are terrifying, i can never truly appreciate anything by a group who has ‘clown’ in their name…. *shudder*

  33. Yay! I’m so happy C-Clown got on the K-Pop charts update since they aren’t that popular but their songs are so awesome!

  34. Ooh, I did like C-Clown’s song! I can’t say the same about their name…

  35. EEEPPP Martina! I really like Shaking Heart by C Clown as much as you! Introductions to new songs like this, that I might otherwise not have listened to, is one of the reason I love the K-Pop Chart Updates! Gracias!

  36. Yay!! C-Clown!! Aussie Aussie Aussie :D

  37. I like the Spanishy guitars in Mona Lisa (and Oh Yeah), so I guess it’s par for the course that I like C-Clown’s song as well.

    • I like Spanishy guitars too (I’d add FT Island’s “I wish” to the list) but “Yo… AMIGOS” always cracks me up XD

      • I also like ‘I Wish’! And Gain’s Irreversible. I wonder if there’s a kpop song with Spanishy guitars that I don’t like…

        “Yo… AMIGOS” ㅋㅋCombined with G.O’s mustache, I’ve heard people say that they thought he was Hispanic at first. (Which would be cool if true, but since he’s most definitely Korean… LOL)

  38. Did Martina say “I can wiggle my bunny like a nose”


  39. Oh my garsh… Martina as a bunny. I think the only that would be cuter is puppies, kittens, and chubby babies. :O
