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. It is usually at the end of the sign off video, in the credits.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. A Prince

    I love a lot of these groups (especially u-kiss) but why can’t there be more names like ‘Big Bang’, ‘Super Junior’ or ‘Infinite’?

    • Because the name has to be a unique combination of letters and numbers so it’s easy to find in search engines.

      If it starts with A, B, C or a number, that’s good too because it’ll show up at the top of alphabetical lists.

      Speaking of:
      AA (pronounced “Double A”)
      AAA (Japanese boyband)

      and there’s also FT Island and LEDApple.

  6. 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…

  10. 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*

  11. I’ve read this twice and both times I read “We smack each other’s buffs far too often.” I should sleep. XD

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

  13. 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!

  15. Confession: I try and hit playlist mode as fast as possible so that I can beat your “plaaaylist mooode” mantra.

    Yes!!! For the inclusion of C-Clown’s “Shaking Heart”. I LOVE this song!!! The snazzy dance with the hats, and the lighting, and the raps are awesome. I am definitely a fan (well, I have been since their last single “Far Away, Young Love”). And Kang Jun looks sounds so fine!!! The style of the MV reminded me a little of SS501’s “Love Like This” (lighting/shadows).
