It’s time for our KpopChart Update! Whoa, did you see that? A huge tumble weed just rolled on past, and that tumble weed smacked of Big Bang.

1) Big Bang “Bad Boy”

 

Now we’re not sure if this is just a fluke or what, but it seems that since Big Bang’s comeback, there aren’t very many Kpop songs coming out lately. I supposed it wouldn’t be a very good idea to release a song during any Kpop heavyweight’s comeback, especially when that comeback was heavily steeped in real life drama before the release date.

So, now that they’re back, they are heavily dominating the Kpop Charts. Big Bang released “Bad Boy” on February 28th and it quickly jumped into the first place position on the charts and crashed our site again. DAMN IT YG! Why do you have to tell everyone the exact hour and date of the video release? That creates such a clusterduck of people all watching that video and voting at the EXACT SAME TIME ALL OVER THE WORLD!!! The YouTube video counter is like, AHHHHHHH!!!!!!! *EXPLODES* and our Kpop Charts are like AHHHHH!!!! *hides*. Anyhoo if it looks like we’re trying to avoid talking about this song, you are correct. We’re probably (if probably was a 100%) going to review it from Music Monday, so NO SOUP FOR YOU!

2) We “Party”

 

Our next song on the Kpopcharts isn’t new for this week; it actually came out on February 21st, but we didn’t get the chance to review it. The groups name is WE and supposedly this is a comeback song, but I’ve never ever heard of this group before. I feel like I would have remembered another co-ed group outside of the very originally named Kpop group Co-Ed, but I guess the slipped under the radar. There are three guys and one girl in this group, but when I watched the music video I actually couldn’t tell how many members were in the group because I didn’t know them very well, and the backup dancers were wearing similar clothing.

Listen: if you’re a new-ish group, you should probably do something to distinguish yourself from your backup dancers. I think the only person that really stood out for me was the guy with red hair and matching eyebrows. Now, according to the instructions on every dye box I have ever seen, you should NEVER DYE YOUR EYEBROWS due to serious risk of retinal burn. Even my 100% vegan Manic Panic pink hair dye is like NOOOOOOoOOOOOOOOo DOOOOON’T DOOOOOO ITTT!!! Well it looks kinda cool, so I guess that’s okay, but I can only imagine how bad that will look when your eyebrows start growing in…did I just talk about eyebrow dye for 5 minutes? Enough of that! Check out WE with their take a couple shots and dance in a club worthy song “Party”.

3) B.A.P. “Secret Love”

 

B.A.P released another video but it isn’t really a music video as so much a behind the scenes footage video + song. We liked this video a lot because it gave us a chance to see the members of B.A.P both acting silly and seriously practicing for their music video “Warrior” and their debut concert. Part of the reason we enjoyed it so much was that it shows B.A.P as regular people who sing in front of the mirror while practicing, joke around with each other, look nervous, but can also get on stage and preform like professionals. Videos like this can help people to be reminded that kpop idols are not demigods that need to be worshiped by followers who will execute anyone who crosses their path, but that kpop singers, behind all the smoke and mirrors are also human beings who can make mistakes, have differing opinions from one another, and may not be as tall as the camera makes them out to be. We recommend supporting your favourite kpop group but if you find yourself screaming in the comment section of various forums because someone doesn’t like your favourite idol, it’s time to remind yourself that even your oppas and unnies poop.

4) Exo “Teaser 23″

 

EXO has done it again! They have released yet another teaser, the 23rd teaser, but still no single. Sure, they released a music video with an entire song in it, but that was just a prologue. If you complied all the teasers they have released and combined them together, I think you could probably get a few full length songs. Anyways, you can see we’re lacking current releases this week when we’re reviewing an EXO teaser, but blame Big Bang. BIG BOWWW BIG BOWWW DON’T STOP!

ToFebruary
  1. The girl from WE has some pretty awesome )literally) OK earings…

  2. lol Simon’s Indian accent when he said ‘yes glory is quite entertaining’ hahahaha xD love u guise <3

  3. so.many.teasers…to. many. teasers. warning warning selfdestruckt in 3 seconds

    3.2.1. “poof”….

    …meep…

    me gusta bad boy though^w^

    Bigbang rocks XO

  4. Rawrrklove

    Wow I think I’m really starting to like BAP, especially whoever has the really deep voice haha
    Also, I’m diggin’ EXO but I just wonder if even they are tired of not officially debuting..lol

  5. thisisjustforfunval

    Marina, you should watch SHINee‘s Taemin’s performances on Immortal Song 2, they are upbeat, entertaining with great dance movies and energy. His singing is awesome. 

  6. Although is, well, ridiculous that it’s the 23rd teaser lol I gotta say I really like their choreographer pieces :P that “goblet” step at 0:44 I think is so beautiful :D And I like the song as well. But I don’t get this dark thing too, it doesn’t pass me a special feeling :P

  7. I’m not a Big Bang fan. But I have to say I liked “Bad Boy” a lot, including the mv.

    I imagine your (Simon and Martina) happiness seeing it has a 1:1 boy:girl hahahaI was just telling one friend that Big Bang is using (or I don’t know if they always use) western girls for their mvs, but I think it suits them better than a korean girls (because of their cute image… it just don’t fits Big Bang’s image).
    I tell her too that, if it was for you to review only Bad Boy or Blue, I prefer Bad Boy. It’s kinda unfair reviewing the same group 2 weeks in a row, but making a rule so that won’t happen is a bit useless xD
    Oh, and I liked the dance a lot 8D and the way that each one of them is dancing in their own style (though TOP doesn’t seem like dancing so much at 3:25 hahaha)
    No soup for me? Yaaaay are you Seinfeld fans? :O I love that show! 8D *have all of the 9 seasons*

  8. I MISS SHINEE TOOOOOOO *SOBS IN CORNER WITH WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS*

  9. wow I like that we – party song and group!

  10. punkyprincess92
    punkyprincess92

    *sobs* i miss SHINee too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Off-topic but… Where did the your Google Moderator Page go? 

  12. oh look! I found this post about shinee’s possible comeback …hmm wonder if SM took a cue from you guise XD

  13. i think i see you simon but i am not sure… Maybe do a screen capture and circle out where you where…?

  14. CasterGirl

    Have you guys seen NU’EST’s teaser? HGFJKGHDKSGJK. I’m glad they’re debuting on the 15th <3 

  15. The EXO teaser was actually pretty interesting…the dance was somewhere between Modern and Hip-Hop. You don’t see that very often.

  16. i was really disappointed u didn’t add ‘Oppa, Oppa’ in  k-pop chart :( i wish u will review them someday :p

  17. I was so excited so I looked for Simon really hard…….but……I……didn’t……see him…………..I am really, really sorry Simon…..I did look…..^^

  18. woa the counter for KPOP charts restarted!!! 

  19. The counter for Big Bang’s “Bad Boy” video is broken. It’s not showing all the votes and has restarted.

    • VIP_ALWAYS

      oh that must be it cause I thought i was imagining things….for that many votes was only for two hours…i know we had more..anyways Bigbang rocks!!

  20. Jacob Alander

    I’m sick of these guys going to NYC to shoot videos. It makes them look stupid. People in US don’t listen to BB. It just comes off looking contrived and lame. BOOOOOO

  21. Actually Bs isn’t pronounced BS and it most definitely does NOT require an apostrophe, because B’s would mean belonging to B.
    I feel your excitement Simon. Your excitement is reaching through the screen to me. Why yes that is sarcasm.
    I really can’t get into Bad Boy…I only like the “sorry I’m a bad boy, you’re a good girl,” bit. : Blue was 100% more awesome and beautiful and great, etc.
    That dance for Party really is adorable, you weren’t kidding.I do love B.A.P’s Secret Love, and it is a really cute MV (there is actually a real MV for it too btw; they made it themselves) but I really wish they’d promote Unbreakable instead…

  22. Ummm, yeah I think it’s called collusion. You know, with SM, YG, JYP all technically being the same company now, why release anything to compete w/ BB?

  23. The BB video has a nice late 90s vibe to it while the song tries hard to have some raggae flavour  but I think it fails to do so. 
    All in all it’s a nice new touch from Big Bang though whoever was in charge with the styling of the guys did a horrendous job. Those polka dots pants make quite an impression. 
    Oh, oh, and the reaction of that worker around the 1 minute mark is priceless. 

  24. Now I’m imagining BAP pooping. DISTURBING.

  25. I wabt to wote for B.A.P but I can’t find the link TT_TT [[keke thanx. I like the Party song too bbut i love B.A.P]]

     

  26. This was a great opportunity to add Brian Joo’s ‘Let this die’ to the playlist…. And not to mention that I’m 100% sure that Brian’d actually watch it as he always likes videos on youtube and even adds them to playlists in his account….But no, u had to ignore him again…..

  27. B.A.P @ 1 min 36 sec, does that say Flaxton Street? Mr. Brohoho strikes again.

  28. “Even your oppas and unnies poop”. This statement is true for everyone except Daesung. Taeyang is the living witness. He is Dae’s roommate and he’s never seen or heard Dae going to or flush the toilet before. LOL.

  29. your_humble_guest

    Co-ed group WE debuted with song Rain – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlccaAoW9r8
    There are 3 guys and 1 girl. One of the guys was dancer for se7en, gd and taeyang

  30. BTW I couldn’t find you Simon!

    PLEASE REVIEW EPIK HIGH/TABLO SONGS PLEEEEEEEEEEEEASEEEEEEEEEEEE

    I think “Even Your Oppas and Unnies Poop.” is a Korean childrens’ book waiting to happen.  It has best seller written all over it.  Write it.  DOOOOOO  ITTTTT.  The illustrations would be legendary.  

  32. for a moment I thought you were reviewing Tablo’s Bad :/ 

  33. “it’s time to remind yourself that even your oppas and unnies poop.”
    c’mon this is obviously a lie. geez 

    I want to stan EXO so bad but they just don’t want to debute. At least I have B.A.P. I love those boys. I finally get into some rookie group, after last year I thought that it would be impossible (because of amount of debuting groups I became tired).

  34. fuuko4869

    “…even your oppas and unnies poop.”

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! *DIES* xD

  35. wow..EXO teaser in here?? I done with them a few teasers ago. Not gonna bother about them until SM debut them, hopefully this year. I’m loving Bad Boy but I can’t enjoy the MV. I have this urge to yank that stupid piece of hair/wig out of Jiyoung’s. It so horrendous and I want to know what the hell they are thinking??? *stare at Jiyoung*

  36. Oralia Ramírez

    soory simon but i couldn’t see u =(

  37. Cinnamon_Cappel

    I actually liked today’s Kpopchart update a new band added to my list WE, so want the red hair. I never thought about the behind the scenes, I guess there are not that many. I grew up with MTV when it actually played music videos and there where always a lot of behind the scene videos. 
    With EXO you should just do one whole update…when they reach the end of their 1001 teasers, feel like Shahryar and EXO is my Scheherazade. 

  38. thisisjustforfunval

    I’ve come to the conclusion EXO = Excessively Xploiting Oneself

    I totally agree with what you have to say about idols and that fans need remember they are real people not some sort of God that lives on a pedestal. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes no need to go all Dothraki man warrior on people who don’t agree with you. BTW I tend to read your blog before watching the videos, just the way I roll. Now I’m going to go watch :)

    Side note: Bang Yong Guk, cutest smile ever.
