G-Dragon “MichiGO” – Vote for it Here!


G-Dragon almost made it in for Music Monday last week. He got into first place, like, an hour after the charts closed. So, that’s why we didn’t review him before. Since then, his video got 4million views. I’m not sure if any of these videos on the list are going to compete with that for 1 week’s worth of work. Maybe SHINee? Thoughts?

For some reason, I remember people saying that they don’t care about YouTube views, and that they don’t represent a group’s/singer’s popularity, but I call a bit of malarky on that. People watch what’s popular. If someone’s got a load of views, it’s because people like that song a lot. I’m not even sure why I started talking about that. Point is, people are really digging this song, it seems. Maybe not as much as G-Dragon’s other songs. For me, it’s not my favorite GD song ever. It’s good, but not blow you away fantastic. It’s just…fun, you know. Thoughts? Is this your favorite GD song ever?

4Minute “What’s Your Name” – Vote for it Here!


GOLD! Gold! Pure gold! There’s so much tomfoolery here that we don’t know what to say. I mean, we do know what to say. It’s more like, we don’t know what NOT to say, because if we talked about everything, we’d have a 30 Minute music Monday. 4Minutex30Minute. 120 Minute. TWO HOURS! That’s too much guise. Too much.

Point is, this is ridiculous and fun, and we wasted a goldmine last time with Hyuna’s “Ice Cream.” Should we waste the opportunity this time? Well, maybe it’s not that big of a missed opportunity, since there aren’t any giant penis pumps spraying everyone with white cream, like in Ice Cream. HAY! Don’t act like that wasn’t meant to symbolize what it was supposed to symbolize! There’s also so much more that we want to say about it, because – on a personal level for things that were revealed to us that we shall never utter in public ever – we have some interesting insight for this video. And – believe it or not – we’re actually rooting for it, though I know some of you think we hate 4Minute. We’re actually rooting for it. Ah! So much to say: so little time.

SHINee “Why So Sersious?” – Vote for it Here!


Hay! SHINee without Jonghyun is not SHINee. It’s SHINE-ish. Almost SHINee, but not really SHINee. Needs more Jonghyun. Also, tell me it’s not a valid point that people wait forever and a bucket for EXO to comeback, but SHINee rushes their promotion without their full crew, because one of them got effed up in a car accident? That just seems so…inconsiderate, you know? Wait for Jonghyun to heal up. Let the group perform as a whole. People would like that more, I think. Though, it’s always great to have more SHINee songs than less, the situation in which they’re promoting right now would make it understandable to ANYONE that maybe they should wait a bit till they could perform as a whole. You gotta agree with me. I know you do!

  1. I love SHINee, poor Jonghyun. Honestly a difficult situation on both sides. I’ll be praying for a quick recovery, that must have been painful. Jonghyun, FIGHTING!

  2. This isn’t exactly off topic. :-p

  3. I’m sure any mv you review will be hilarious this week, yay! Can’t wait. ^^

  4. I agree with all fans and your comments about waiting for Jonghyun. SHINee isn’t SHINee without him. But try to seriously think from their management perspective. They probably have shows and various celebrity commitments scheduled up the wazoo months in advance. Imagine the scheduling nightmare of having to move all of that back to film a music video delayed by the healing process. I think they went ahead without Jonghyun so that when he is healed up they can continue with their performance schedule where Jonghyun would still be loved and his vocal parts in ‘Why so serious’ given back to him. Please consider how hard all of SHINee worked to continue with their schedule – I think it’s still a great video (though of course would have been better with the full group).

  5. I think out of the three videos I’d like for Shinee to be reviewed … I’m not SHinee biased … I dont even like the song that much (Dreamgirl was much better with Jonghyun’s vocals… this one seems a bit empty)… but who knows what you’ve already picked… it’s passed midnight KST …

    Just a small notice… in the “4 minute” song they say “I’m not easy” but they’re dressed like how they’re dressed……and they have a bunch of views … myeah … – . -‘

    “For some reason, I remember people saying that they don’t care about YouTube views, and that they don’t represent a group’s/singer’s popularity, but I call a bit of malarky on that. People watch what’s popular. If someone’s got a load of views, it’s because people like that song a lot.” usually I’m attracted to videos that have less views… makes you wonder what unnoticed potential that specific song has…


  6. I am totally with you, Martina. It feels weird to watch them without Jonghyun and as you said it’s not like Shawols wouldn’t understand them postponing their promotions because of this accident.

    I know we still should appreciate that the other four now have to put in more effort but to me it feels like SM is saying “Let’s see if we can do without Jonghyun” I don’t like this feel :( And the song also doesn’t do it for me, though I like the costumes and sets in the MV ^^

  7. So my options are a deliciously sarcastic 4minute KMM, a fun and upbeat GD KMM, or a mixed bag of feelings both positive (Go Taemin go!) and negative (Jonghyun! why SM why?) that would be super interesting all around.

    Holy shit am I torn.

  8. Also, I agree with your comments on SHINee…want Jonghyun back. I do like that they get more vocal parts, but…I miss Jjong..

  9. I think G Dragons mv is really over the top maybe even for him, its fun in the begining but the song is better without it.. alltough i looove the part when he dances with the girl (and her bob dance is awsome!!!) It’s groovy to listen to and a good follow up on crayon and one of a kind.

    I can see that this is a really hard choise to make, I’m totaly a Shawol, but GD is seriously good.

    So as a Shawol I of course adore “why so serious” its a good song with a great mv, (appart from the freakin’ 80′ synth, which IS AWFUL) I think they pulled it of great without jjong, and I’m no blinger so… but it’s seriously starting to bother me, I’ve watched it like a hundred times now, and he just sould be there!!! They’re shining SHINee, I want them all, and now forever jjong’s gonna be missing in this mv. I mean, Shinee is like one of SMs biggest stars, they should have been able to do something to delay it, right?

  10. “Simon: SHINee or as I like to call you, people that we potentially can become very good friends with

    hey, i thought you already consider us friends? why potentially? kekeke

    shawols already love S&M… i know I do… :D

  11. I agree that they should have waited for Jjong but I can see why they went ahead without him. SM treats comebacks like clock work. Everyone is scheduled after one another (or maybe not EXO because they’re like the forgotten newborns in SM lol) and I guess they didn’t want to wait and push back other artists comebacks. But at the same time why couldn’t they just let another artist make their comeback ahead of SHINee? Whatever SM is not my favorite company when it comes to things like this. -_-“

  12. Ooooh Simon, that chest hair is so nasty.

  13. …Ok, I love you guys, I really do, you better believe me cuz I swear it’s true. You’re like my morning tuseday coffee and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told to STFU when I’m watching you in school.

    I stay up to be one of the first to see your videos, I’ve watched all your videos (exept some indie since… I’m a rock/hiphop kinda girl with a sweet-tooth for pop… and THANK YOU FOR BRINGING UP OUTSIDER! My Nasty friend never gave him a chance till You said “check him out!” and since then we’ve been… talking really fast… And she had to say I was right…) and all but like 3 (my internet can only take so much streeming a-month) live-streams live. I really love you and your sense of humor and a few Nasty-inside-jokes sometimes slip out… (Friend: I’m thirsty. Me: Eyyyyyyy gurl, can I buy you a drink?*rolling down my sexy window in public* F: wut? Me: Nothing, let’s just get drinks ok?) and your GangNam Style parody was THE most funniest parody I’ve EVER seen.

    I’m accually using you for not one, not two but THREE english assignments (our English teacher sucks… like really sucks… do rookie mistakes in grammer when speaking, can’t understand simple phrases, confuse homonyms and heteronyms and just plain words all the time, can’t stand being corrected and is just a plain pain in the… backside.) and I wish I had english teachers like you…

    I’ve been with you since before we were Nastys! Since SHINee Hello KPMM… acually… (I know it’s not that long)
    And you’ve never made a DOUBLE KPMM even when the charts go mitchi (he-he-he).
    I really love your Milkshake review and voted for Eat your kimchi like a man-review, I was a bit hurt that you didn’t do a Gentleman review and chanced the KPMM-winner-thingy so that BIGBANG can’t win for as long as they post videos but saw the potensial and it is your choice and your channal and your blog, you do as you please.
    You know as well as I that it will be a fight till death between SHAwols and G-fans and that G-fans are a tiny bit annoyed that we didn’t win last week.

    But I’m starting to feel a little hurt by you.
    You’re usally nice to the fandom that fight for weeks to keep our idols in the top and mention them and so on but BtoB have been in the top 3 since their new song was released and with SHINee, GD AND 4 minutes they’re STILL in the top three.

    Soon 4 minutes will catch up, and uBEAT will kill the charts. We can’t hold of for much longer.
    And even though your extra KPMM has been “joke KPMM” can’t just at lease give us a tiny KPMM or at least acknowledge us?
    BtoB have never been this high on the charts and are still high.

    Okay, I’m done now. Bye!

  14. Yo did you guys hear the “NASTY~” from Welcome by Jay Park?

  15. I’m sorry i was distract by your man chest simon. You were LIKE A MAN !

  16. i am sad that Jonghyun wasn’t in the mv!!! but i don’t think they couldn’t have pushed it back because SHINee have other schedules lined up for the year!! anyway i still love the MV though and the song!! the rest of the SHINee members are working hard to fill Jjong’s part!!! Tae is doing an awesome job and he’ll be improving himself with this promotion a WHOLE LOT more!!

    i’m kinda hoping SM can make another version of the mv soon with Jjong included!!
    i was so happy yesterday cos i saw a pic of Jonghyun and he was completely fine!! his nose was FINE!!!!
    anyway i like to listen to the album version of the song cos it makes me so much happier being able to hear Jjong’s voice!!!

  17. Hmm…the 4Minute song is a little underwhelming for me (though the beginning beats are awesome, as is the part at 1:08–is that the lead-in into the chorus?).

    For the most part though, I felt like I was watching a sexier, glitterier, paint-splatterier version of “I Got A Boy,” what with all the pink and the bedroom set and the dance scene set with the houses. Then I snort-giggled at the flash mob zombies :p

    Oh, and I can only take so many shots of Hyuna’s rump, geez.

  18. Fear Not! Bilasa’s Comeback is on May 6th!!!

  19. I gotta say I was really disappointed with SHINee’s comeback without Jonghyun but I guess we should be happy that he’s getting some rest and hopefully will come back to performing very soon. TaeMan did a really good job with singing his parts in the MV but after listening to Why So Serious with Jonghyun’s voice I feel like the song finally sounds complete. It’s just sad that since people like watching MVs they will probably remember TaeMan’s voice and not Jonghyun’s :( Either way, as much as I love SHINee, this song can definitely wait until the next KMM to be reviewed. GD’s song already lasted long enough on the chart so it’s time to talk about MichiGo. This MV is sooo crazy that I’d like to hear what kind of theories S&M have about it. Some people say they don’t really like the song but in my case I liked it even before I saw the video. Kind of reminds me of 2PM’s Electricity which I love listening to coz it gives this cool vibe (I don’t really know how to describe it :D). Anyway, I hope S&M will review both, GD’s and then SHINee’s MV :)

  20. maaaan, that’s harsh!! I love GD, and this song rocks, and i know he’s gonna win cuz of his army of millions of fans, but i think that you doing the 4 minutes song for KMM would be HILARIOUS… I also really like Shinee and I really like the beat of this song, but i’m bummed cuz the missing dude is the one i actually think is cute… T_T but i just wanna say… why did they call their song that?? why??? I mean, after GD used it in Crayon, it’s forever gonna seem is if they’re just hopping on the bandwagon… oh well.

    I didn’t vote because a) i know GD is gonna win and b) I can’t really bear to choose, and i’m just gonna wait and see what you guys pick!

  21. I want to see Martina’s kpop/alice in wonderland movie. Especially Key-bunny.
    I think you should go with Shinee this Monday. 4 minute isn’t in the top 3 right now and I think G-Dragon can probably stay top 3 for another week so you’ll get another chance at him. Besides, MichiGO is like CRAYon part 2 and it’s supposed to be wacky and silly. Kind of harder to be funny about something that’s already being funny about itself.

  22. I was getting ready to rumble, then I saw tantalising glimpses of Simon’s sexy chest hair. Now I have a terrible case of FJS, with some added drool.

  23. Ha ha, Martina said 4 minutes “What’s my name?” – Did anyone else notice that?

  24. I heard Jonghyun got punished for that fact, he was sneaking out of the dorm a lot at night. He sneaked out the same night he got into that car accident so I think SM punished him by letting him out of the video. But its still weird since the fact well… it hurts the fans more then Jonghyun… ><' anyways I dunno.. and I have no clue who to vote for ether. :P
    Votes for all xD

  25. I agree with what you said about SHINee’s comeback. I didn’t feel comfortable watching it either, with Jonghyun missing. One gets the feeling that maybe SM is punishing him for something (I mean “SM”; what else would you expect?).
    Anyway, I think they should have waited for him. This isn’t a 13-member band like SuJu. When 1 member is missing – especially Jonghyun, who is usually front and centre – that’s a big deal.

  26. Shawols are really upset about Jonghyun not showing up in the MV……
    But SM has a couple of valid reasons to do so…
    Since it is the “chapter two” of dream girl, the comeback is scheduled immediately after promotions of dream girl ended. SM has already scheduled tightly all the TV or stage performances for them, so if it is delayed (or even cancelled), SM will absolutely lose lots of money, plus it will ruin other’s impression towards SHINee.And because they have a concert tour in Japan later, with the fact that f(x) and EXO is coming back soon, if this comeback is delayed, they comeback will be like a year later….And the “chapter two” thing will become nonsense.

    And Jonghyun will get to perform live like in a week or two. For me, 4 of them already gives an awesome performance (the powerful dance, Taemin’s rap, and the fact that they finally wear NORMAL clothes), and when Jonghyun is back, it will be PERFECT!!

  27. Check out Rainbow99’s songs!! So catchy!! /loljks ;D

  28. I’m really hoping 4minute gets in the top 3… mostly b/c you know that will be one ridic and awesome KMM! Unlike GD’s MV, I still think they take themselves seriously… when very very strange things are just happening….very strange.

  29. I am glad I was not the only one who caught the crotch pointing ‘tell me what’s your name’ bit. Why are all the teasers for that song coy camera stares and sassy outfits and HyunA’s is like on a bed touching herself…if HyunA and Junsu got together I don’t know who would touch themselves more……

  30. A little off topic but….
    I spy with my little eye…Junsu’s Banana!!! XD

  31. Um… S&M, you guys posted the teaser for Why So Serious, not the actual video.

  32. is it just me? the playlist is not playing in the correct order…. BUT it doesnt stop me from watching it in the correct order by manually clicking on the videos in the playlist :P this week’s Kpopchart is going to be a war zone lol. guise, please respect simon and martina’s choice for KMM this monday, i hate to see another series of complains over stuff like these…

    • What order did the videos play for you?
      It skips every second video for me, when I watch the embedded playlist on this page.

      • yup, that’s wat happened. so i basically keep watching the updates with no music video LOL

        • Its an interesting glitch isn’t it. I looked it up when it started happening to me about 3 months ago. Unfortunately there isn’t really a fix for it, except for selecting the videos manually.

        • I just click on the [Youtube] button on the bottom right corner of the embedded playlist. That automatically starts playing the video, in PLAYLIST MODE, on YouTube, in a separate tab. That way you can watch it normally in the next tab, and come back to this tab to comment.
          *picture attached*

        • Thank you for the fix! I do think YT has a glitch (this has also happened to me; usually the videos play out of order), but I’ll try this from now on! Thank you, Fuuko! ^^/

        • That’s a good point. I could open a new tab. xD Thanks~

        • it could be a problem on youtube’s part. i’ve had this problem more frequently during the recent weeks. also happened on their wank and fapfap video playlists, as long as there are 3 or more videos in the list

        • Yeah, the more videos in the playlist the more likely it was to skip videos. Like you said, more than 3 videos seems to be the magical number to cause it.
          It actually stopped skipping videos for me for about 2 weeks (which confused me because the MVs started playing haha). But its back again.
          From memory when I looked up the problem. There was a YouTube help page where others were having similar problems and it had to do with a small piece of code on the page. It was telling the playlist to skip every second video.
          What I don’t understand its only a few of us that are having this problem. If everyone was having this problem, it would be easier to find the exact problem and fix it, but most people seem to have no problem. So I’m not sure xD

          EDIT: Or there is Fuuko’s solution above ^^

    • Same -_- All the complaints on the Rose KMM were ridiculous >_>

  33. I think I don’t mind Jonghyun not being there because of how well they still did without him. But yes I wish he was there still :( I still love the video and song though

  34. SM should have waited for Jonghyun to be in the MV and let Exo have their comeback for that time gap. But we all know what a troll SM is.

  35. I’m a shawol and I’m kinda (almost) ok with Jonghyun not performing in hte begining of their promotions.It’s maybe because I feel if SM wanted Jonghyun to be there no matter what, they won’t delate the video more than a week and on the other hand they’ll force him to perform while he’s not completely healed.
    I like to see this as giving Jonghyun more time to rest and relax (probably right now he’s not and instead he’s learning day to night the new dance -_-) and if it means I have to watch a video with just the four of them, I’m ok with that.
    I think the whole schedule was already up somewhere since Dream girl, as the album was planned and all. SM won’t delay so much their MV and comeback, they’ll instead make the member dance and sing while not in the best condition (hey, I didn’t say it was right!). So yeah, instead of grumping that Jognhyun is not in the MV I’m hoping he’s reasting properly and rooting for the rest of them ^^^

  36. omg please review all of this

  37. Of the three, I definitely would be more interested in a GD review, but I could enjoy them all.

    I do have to say that SHINee’s clothes were really cool! In Sherlock they looked…um…well…interesting. We’ll leave it at that. But hopefully they’ll keep it up!

  38. I SO agree with the shinee thing, tbh even if it was Key or Minho were the one missing I would rather they wait and delay everything than CONTINUE to pile up shit on them, IT’S A FREAKING MUSIC VIDEO how can they not have a member there fhgdkjghdgf I’m really quite annoyed. Seriously they even had time to record Taemin singing Jonghyun
    s parts for the video, isn’t that simply absurd (not that I hate it but like WHAI would you do that)
