2PM “A.D.T.O.Y” – Vote for it Here!

 

So, we just talked about the name of the song, which we don’t like, but we didn’t talk about how much we like this song. IT’S SO MUCH BETTER THAN THEIR FIRST SONG WITH AN ALSO AWKWARD NAME. This song is really, really catchy, and Martina’s been singing it all day. There’s a lot to say about the video as well, which will – surely – result in Fangurilla taking over majority of the show so she can scream. Still, this song isn’t as overwhelming and bombastic and explosive a return as we’ve been anticipating from 2PM, but it’s still a damned good song. Just something totally different from what we thought we’d hear from them. We’re still happy, though! What are your thoughts? Pick one: ADTOY or CBWYHTS.

LC9 “MaMa Beat” – Vote for it Here!

 

Ok, so, yes, this is strikingly similar to B.A.P.’s “Warrior.” We were even told that this was supposedly the same set? We don’t know. Can’t confirm it, but we wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the case. Where is this set, anyway? We need to start WANKing at Kpop Music Video sets. Anyhow, the B.A.P-ness of this video aside, how funky awesome is this song, eh? EH? I’m Canadian! Answer me when I say Eh! Speaking of being Canadian – particularly, a Torontonian – supposedly Toronto’s mayor smokes crack. How many of you can say you have a crackhead for a mayor? Didn’t think so.

Yes, that was unrelated. I’ve drank a lot of coffee between the paragraph on 2PM and this paragraph, and I’m feeling hyper. Both of those songs are great. I’m not really even sure which one I like more. 2PM’s song is really good, but I’m biased to funkiness. And this sounds like Video Game funkiness as well. It’s very 8 bit. I dunno. What I can say, though, is that this is one of the coolest debut songs I’ve heard in a long time, apart from Warrior. I would say the same about EXO, but I don’t know what their debut song actually was, because there are so many names for different songs and what the crap I don’t know. What is Love is the greatest song of all time is all you need to know, Debut or not. This song, though not the G.O.A.T., is still really cool :D

9Muses “Wild” – Vote for it Here!

 

Hey. Who noticed that awesome jersey in this video? You know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, check the video and come back to me. Ha! That jersey’s awesome. Problem is, boys can’t wear something like that. It’s creepy when guys are called perverts, but for a girl to have a pervert sign on doesn’t seem as icky, no? Just me? A guy can see a girl with a pervert shirt on and be like “pooh that’s kinky!” but switch it around and girls might be like “ewww gross.” Ladies? Am I right. Wait: I’m gonna ask Martina. She’s sitting across the table from me now. Wait a sec.

Just confirmed it. Yep: she says it’s creepy, like the guy would try to look up her shirt or something. Hmm. Interesting.

Anyhow, this video’s super sexy and I’d love to re-enact the scenes for you and destroy any arousal you might feel for the next 6 months. I DON’T THINK YOU READY FOR THIS JELLY MY BODY’S TOO BOOTYLICIOUS FOR YOU BABE. Question: why didn’t my computer autocorrect or even underline Bootylicious for me? Is that really a word now?

  1. i’m not really digging the whole ass shaking thing!!!!

  2. I love your rants on English. Have you been out of the US for so long you forgot what it’s like here? Huge chunks of our population has funky pronunciation…and that’s the people who were born here. My husbands from a small town in Iowa and says things like “It was bvery hard trying to crost (cross) the crik (creek)” When he’s with his brother and father, I can’t make out a third of what they are saying. The kpop guys sound fine to me. Oh, and by the way, groovy is very hipster here in Oregon. Usually used in THC induced ramblings. Sounded fine to me in Block B’s video. Shheesh language, always evolving. Love ya all’s videos!

    • Lol, they are Canadian, not from the US, but I certainly understand what you mean. Hell, there are so many different permutations of English around the world that it is ridiculous. I live and teach in the Caribbean and today I had to explain to my students the difference in meaning of the English word ‘ ignorant’ and our dialect bastardisation of the word ‘ igrant’. Fun times language, fun times.

      • OMG! I almost wrote at the end …you’re probably from Canada! To tell the truth I tend to just include them in any conversation about North America. Canadians are kind of like cousins whose place in the family tree we can’t quite figure out.

  3. PLEASE REVIEW NEXT WEEK 빅스(VIXX) – [hyde] Official Music Video

  4. It took months for me to get Bootylicious out of my head and now it’s back in. Thanks a lot, Simon…. =_= hehe

  5. I love 2PM but I actually would ike you guys to review LC9′s mama beat, I really like it

  6. Can you guys make a shirt that says A Donkey Tickles Onew’s Yoohoo??? I would sssssoooooo wear it and accept all the weird looks I would get!

  7. Martina, I have to say it ~ I was hypnotised by your eyes in this video >_< usually I'm a fan of no-makup make-up but those lashes are just outstanding~! Anyhow, I wish both of you a great time in Singapore^^

  8. MaMa Beat reminds me of the Taiwanese action-drama ,K.O.One, but in a good way. I love that show. Lol. The song was meh, but the video and overall look of the groups was nice and very BAP-esque. Not completely similar. 2PM’s song is freaking amazing and one of my favorites to date. The I love the classic 2PM stuff, I gotta say that R&B sounds good on them. ^^

  9. 2pm:
    cbahtsawtvoti. and acient demonic curse. BRILLIANT!
    LC9:
    So. Much. Violence.
    9Muses:
    The diamonds on the lips. Really, that can’t be comfortable, or nice, or easy to remove, or perfect for daily use. I just. No. :

  10. I actually love 2PM’s song (not a huge fan of their music, I have tried) not feeling LC9′s song or the over the top out to shock for no good reason violence in the MV, and not sold on 9 Muses (again not a fan of the music). Martina you look gorgeous, you need to do a tutorial on the make up!!

  11. irritablevowel

    Oh! Oh! Washington D.C. had a mayor that smoked crack! Twinsies!

    I know I’m not the only person hearing “booty ya” over and over again with that 2 p.m. song.

  12. Apparently LC9 is suppose to be an acronym for ‘League of Competition #9′ but it’s the name of a pistol…. Why don’t they just say it like that? I like their song, although a tiny bit repetitive for me.

  13. English Major Bartender in the house whoot whoot!!

  14. LC9 was fantastic, I really hope they get the review. These guys are indestructible killing machines that come with their very own Super Saiyan beating the crap out of each other in a fight club. It’s like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon meets the Matrix.

  15. aha onew… XD

  16. is that a caterpillar on your upper lip?

  17. A.D.T.O.Y. is awesome! I love the vibe it gives off, its so…Omph!!

    Oh and Wild is awesome too! THe song is too catchy for words! It’s so good!!! Ah! I can’t pick!!!

    Martina! Your eye makeup looks GREAT!

  18. Stephanie

    I have to admit, I really enjoy the T&A poses at 1:18 in 2pm’s video. That’s now my favorite dance move from any boy band video.

  19. Here’s a question, if you’ve got someone as nice to look at as GaIn guesting on your track, why why why would you not put her in the video?
    Its a disservice to the community.

  20. Hey Simon and Martina I know I’m super late but I just wanted to let you know bootylicious was added to the Oxford American Dictionary a few years ago, hence why spell check let it pass.

    http://oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/bootylicious

    I’m torn between 2PM and 9MUSES. A KPMM on either would be awesome. Being a girl, I’m leaning toward 2PM. Fangurilla and I can bond!

    Have fun in Singapore!

  21. 2PM song is soooooooooooooooooo gooooooooooooooooood not just caz I’m a hottest :D

  22. Simon I think you should lay off the coffee man it’s not healthy.

    Somebody else tell me they here 2PM saying “boning ya boning ya”.

  23. Is it just me, or is KPop getting more and more sexy with their MVs and dance routines. 9Muses – Wild, Rania – all of them, Girl’s Day – Expectation, After School – Flashback.

    And I don’t mean sexy in a bad way but a classy way.

  24. A.D.T.O.Y short for: ALL DAY I THINK OF YOU :)

  25. I LOL’ed at ‘grabbing the bed tightly because it’s going down a steep slope’

  26. For 2PM’s ADTOY, the acronym stands for All Day I Think Of You. I believe that at the end of the song they sing this, with that deep voice in the background. Switching from all day to all night.

  27. That fight coordinator did a GOOOOOOOOOOOD job!

  28. I’m surprised you didn’t mention the fact that THREE OUT OF THE THREE videos this week has English subs. How awesome is that?

  29. PunkyPrincess92

    “a donkey tickels Onew’s yoohoo” ahahahahahahahahahah!!! oh my gosh i’m crying!!!
    i clicked on this from twitter and was thinking what the hell are you guys on about?? (i was even more curious since it was about a SHINee member!!)
    poor Onew…..not knowing how his ‘yoohoo’ is being talked about!! ahaha!!!

    O_O that LC9 mv………freakin’ creepy!!! yeah i’m not the kind who wants to watch a music video and see someone with an axe in them!!!
    the video made me think of Fight Club! (even though i watched that movie like maybe more than 10 years ago so i don’t actually remember it that well!!!)

  30. yup LC9 did use the same set as warrior.. why not ask mr.Brohoho for further confirmation?? haha

  31. Wait…I don’t understand, Simon & Martina…!
    What about BILASA? How come they’re not on the top 3 with 2pm, 9muses and LC9?
    Someone help..!!

  32. I much prefer ADTOY to CBWYHTS.

    I think LC9 reminds me of BAP in that they aren’t going down teh cutey-boy debut route, but rather the fierce, action route. It’s not a bad thing, and I wouldn’t really call them copycats for it either. I really like the song, and I thought the fight scenes were beautifully choreographed and shot.
    As for the 9muses, I was hoping for a nice combination of sexy and classy in their MV… sadly, it was more sexy than classy, but enjoyable all the same.

    • Blueberries

      Hmm I don’t think I’d even thought of BAP watching LC9 if Martina wouldn’t have mentioned BAP. Only resemble to me is scenery where they are fighting… and that’s about it XD

      • I didn’t see the similarities that Martina saw, but I was reminded of BAP because 1) they didn’t debut with a cutesy sort of video and 2) I’ve got BAP on the brain :P lol

        • Blueberries
          Blueberries

          Well yea they have quite badass image. But I thought I was gonna find more similarities but they don’t sound like BAP at all and they didn’t even have dance XD Closer resemble’d be Block B since they have this more of this gang image when BAP are alien-warrior-bunnies XDD

  33. This is all nice and stuff….but where’s my SHINHWA AHJUSSHIIS!!? ;_; //sobs silently.

  34. Becky Strickland

    I am so glad you guys described LC9′s song as funky. I thought so too. Whoever made that part of the music did a good job and gave it a layer of depth. I loved the video. It shows that Kpop boys/young men are really just decedents of Sayians; and they got to fight each other or else they would destroy whole planets and stuff. If I had to make a Kpop video, I would much rather do a violent fighting one than to have to do a sleazy “sexy” video where it looks like I got all of my dance training from strip clubs and cat houses….ahhem….. 2PM and Muses.

    Simon, i tried really hard to correct my grammer. Not really

  35. Before commenting on the update videos, I want to recommend another video that was released this week but (sadly) isn’t doing this well on the charts.
    Swings ft. Seo In Guk – Would You? http://www.eatyourkimchi.com/kpopcharts/swings-would-you/ The song is cool and the video as well!

    So many numbers in today’s bands’ names…
    2PM: This song is soooo good! Even though there are some parts that I don’t really like, the rest of the song is so awesome that I love it anyway. The video is OK, but the dance makes me giggle and I don’t think that it was their intention.
    LC9: I haven’t listened to this song before and wow, it’s pretty cool, I’m lovin’ the beat! However, I think Gain’s part was completely unnecessary. As for the video, I don’t like it. Not that I don’t like fight scenes in general, I loved Fight Club and I like Epik High’s Breakdown MV (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTnly5fZvPw) but this one… nope. Maybe because in both Fight Club and Breakdown there was something more that just pure violence and in MaMa Beat I don’t see anything more? Idk. But I just have to mention one thing: when they spin-kicked different stuff thrown at them, I just couldn’t help but think of Spinzaku ;D And if you don’t know what Spinzaku is, I recommend watching Code Geass.
    9Muses: Ha, I saw your thumbnail for that video and I had the same reaction when I saw that girl in white corset: BOOBS! I like this song. And Simon’s talk about the video was hilarious! Bed going down a steep slope, I can’t XD

    Side note: Martina’s makeup looked pretty impressive!

  36. It means “All. Day. Think. Of. You.” You can put up the captions on the video and the lyrics repeat that over and over, so I’m pretty sure that’s it…Oh lol you just said it right while I was writing this lols.

  37. hmm that mama beat thingy is really nice ….what am i the only one that likes irational violence? and the electro beat it s also very cool

  38. Simon, you such a genius! A Donkey Tckles Onew Yoohoo… Damn, i’m not sure i’ll ever listen to this amazing song the same way, ever again!

  39. A.D.T.O.Y-All Day,Think Of You…When you lisen the song with eng subs (yep,thumb up for them,they have eng subs-HORAY!) it actually make sense…kinda xD
    I RLY like this song btw!And that “Oh,’someones’ hand is touching my butt” dance-KHI2712DGBXSBH!!!!They are doing this for purpose,for shure xD

  40. LC9′s whole album is really good
    including an english version of a SPICA song
    (not a title track a song on their album)
    Seriously though all the songs are really, really good
    I particularly like Skirmish

    Also Nine Muses’ album also surprised me
    they have had good non title tracks before (like Ladies)
    but wow Action, Living Person, Paper Scraps… all really really good songs
    I’m so used to random awful filler in Kpop that I’m totally surprised.

    S&M I highly suggest listening to their albums on the plane!

  41. Martina, your make-up is amazing! Big WOW! I do love it!

  42. thisisjustforfunval

    A Donkey Tickles Onew’s Yoohoo, I’d like to be that donkey. Wait that’s just wrong…I’m not a donkey. XD

  43. I’m sorry – I really need to get something off my chest about 2PM. I’ll start with saying how much I DO like them and their songs. They are really really good – here comes the ‘but’ – but I don’t think that they are as good as dancing as people always say… If you only watch ONE of them when they dance it is fine (cos individually, they can obviously dance well), but they are terrible at being cohesive with each other. They don’t always move at the same time, aren’t in the exact same positions/angles. It gets to the point where I would argue they are doing parts of the dance completely differently to one another.
    I’m not saying it is easy, I’m not saying I can do it. But alot of/most other groups (naming no names – no fan wars are gonna start here) manage it better (often with equally as difficult choreography). Maybe it is just me – but I mention it here cos ADTOY is particularly ‘bad’ in this respect.

    • hmm have you seen their MV for “Beautiful”? I think that would change you’re mind…drastically. There dancing is pretty much flawless and they’re all very in sync with one another.

      • Wow – thanks for introducing that MV to me – The choreography and dancing is amazing! Thanks :)
        I totally agree that this is a HUGE improvement (not flawless) but probably in sync as much as all the other bands I refused to name earlier…. But I still feel like this is perhaps an exception… and also brings up the question ‘why is this the exception – why do they feel so uncohesive normally, when this shows that they have managed it in the past?’ I’ll watch it/other-vids-of-them-dancing again a couple of times tommorrow/this month (I am meant to be revising…) to see if my opinions change. But thanks again for introducing that video – really impressed :)

        [EDIT] – maybe it is just about the amount of time they are given to prepare. For debuts and japanese promotions a lot is at stake so maybe they are given longer to practice/edit things to make them perfect? ‘Beautiful’ has shown me that they can definitely do it – maybe they had less time to learn the ADTOY dance? – just a theory

        • Well I would say with any of their Japanese videos (I’m Your Man, Ultra lover, Maquerade) I’ve never seen them fail to be cohesive…but now that I think about it, besides A.D.T.O.Y, I can’t think of any videos in which they weren’t cohesive. Could you name some other videos that you felt they were out of sync with each other? But as far as adtoy goes, and I hate to say it, but I felt there were times that they were a bit out of sync with each other…like when there standing on the chairs. But I didn’t really notice it too much because I was too distracted by their butt dance lol

        • maivalentine

          oh yes – that butt dance was very distracting! haha.

          I didnt think ‘Comeback when you… etc’ was very cohesive at points, some of ‘I’ll be back’, ’10 out of 10′ (tho they were young there and the dance didnt need cohesive-ness tbh) and some stuff on variety shows, but none of them were ‘worse’ than ADTOY. Also, I feel that they rely on tricks (and muscles… but I’m defintely not complaining about that. Haha) on variety shows (and in early videos) instead of actual dancing/being cohesive.

          I hasten to add that I am judging them very harshly – I am comparing them with ‘the best’ only because I dispute the idea (which I have heard being said quite alot) that they are ‘the best’ dancers in Kpop. I think they are hugely above average – but not the best. In my opinion, they are probably the best acrobats (who are also amazing at dancing). (Also I’m judging them as a group – individually, they might be able to contend for ‘best individual dancer’)

  44. I didn’t think about Warrior at all while watching Mama Beat… I don’t know, the feeling is very different, Warrior sounded serious, while that video was funny in a very dark way, Warrior also seemed less realistic than this one despite the video game references… I loved the song, except for Ga In’s part (sorry Simon, she sings greatly but it felt awkward in this song, as the rap part feels in at lot of sung songs)

    Great playlist guise! Hwaiting for this hectic weekend!

  45. am I the only one who feels seriously uncomfortable about lc9′s video?

    on the day the video came out, I was just watching the news and it was all about the lawsuit against some guys wo beat another young guy the didn’t even know to death at a public place for no reason….and then right afterwards I saw the lc9 video, in which they beat up each other in a way, that could kill them (come on, an axe?!) and seem to think it’s fun.
    that’s just…no. too much violence for me, sorry.
    but the song is still cool.

    • Blueberries

      Although I watch anime’s and movies that have lots of violence.. I still didn’t like LC9′s mv. Yes, it was really uncomfortable. For me the biggest reason was that there wasn’t any reason for that violence. They just tried to kill each other (if you hit someone head with brass knuckles you can’t be joking around) and still were friends at end. I don’t think anyone would laugh with his hand almost cut of with axe either. It just felt really unnatural and unreasonable to me. Some of moves and effects were cool but the unreasonable and over-the-top violence ruined whole thing.

      • agreed!
        I mean…what exactly is the message of this video? that hitting your friends with an axe is a lot of fun when you’re bored? idek

        • Blueberries
          Blueberries

          Only explanation that I could come up with that they are on drugs. And not in sth mild drugs like weed; those kind of drugs that makes you jump of building thinking that you are a bird.

        • AudreyKoopman

          Lol, no, boys just like to fight. A fact of life I don’t understand. Most of the guys I know like to fight for fun, it is like an instinct or something.
          Fight Club is basically starts out as men getting together to beat the crap out of each other because they think it is fun and manly and whatever.

        • Blueberries
          Blueberries

          If it was sparring session I could get it. But with axe? Throwing tile on someone’s head? I doubt I can ever get this mv. They should have included some kind of plot.

        • AudreyKoopman

          I don’t think this video is something you have to ‘get’. It is just guys fighting. Using the axe and throwing the brick and have it do nothing to the guys has to do with the super powers (aka the glowing punches, dude’s eyes changing colors). I think a plot would take away from the video in all honesty. They’d have to work hard to justify what is just a fight. Fights don’t always have a back story and in most kpop videos that have fights, the back story is pretty crappy from what I’ve seen. I’m glad that they didn’t even bother with it. There is enough explanation there without putting in so much. They are friends and fighting for fun and of their own free will.
          Someone said in a comment somewhere that I’ll probably never find again that the lyrics have to do with being an idol is like fighting and the song describes that fight. So, as an idol they ‘fight’ against friends in the industry, it is their own choice, and as idols they’re like ‘super powered’ because of what they idol status grants them. The video relates it pretty clearly in my opinion. Granted, that is based off of someone else’s comments and I don’t look into translations myself because I like not knowing.

        • Blueberries
          Blueberries

          So they are like superheroes.. well that explains why they aren’t dead yet. But why aren’t they saving people and fighting against evil then? XD Idk this mv was just really odd to me and I don’t think I could start liking it.

        • AudreyKoopman

          I’m going with: They are still young and immature. They are rebelling from the status that usually comes with that of a super hero. They don’t want the labels that society gives to them.

          Lol, yes it is odd and that is probably why I like it. And there is nothing wrong with not liking it, you don’t have to. I’m just having a discussion, you say why you think something and I counteract it and try to help make some sense of the video. But yeah, I know fighting isn’t everyone’s thing.

        • Blueberries
          Blueberries

          Hmm the odd thing here is that fighting actually is my thing, i love action movies XD But not just this one.. Anyway, yea I can see your point too :)

        • AudreyKoopman

          Oh, that is kind of odd lol. Most people I know (personally) who like this MV are really into action and fighting. You’re just the special exception I guess? Its the lack of plot that does you in, right? :)

        • Blueberries
          Blueberries

          Yea that’s probaply it :)

        • You haven’t seen the movie called fight club? you might wanna check that out, it maybe helps to understand the video :) plus dragon ball z might also help.

        • Blueberries
          Blueberries

          Well DBZ surely doesn’t help me understanding this one..

        • I don’t believe Sajyans would fight like that – they don’t need axes or bricks. Moreover they usually fight to save the world ^^ I still like LC9′s song though. But I won’t watch this video again. They could make a dance version MV for me :)

        • with dbz I meant more the super powers. :P i think the movie fight club helps to understand more why friends are fighting against each others like that. I guess (for me at least) but I totally get if people doesn’t want to watch the mv again. It’s pretty brutal, but then again, I love the mv so much, it’s so different than I’m used to see in kpop. And their acting is pretty solid, it’s hard to believe that lc9 is actually a rookie group. And I like that fact that there’s axes and bricks and blood everywhere. If they were simple fighting, that might make me feel a lot more uncomfortable, when it’s made over the top it kinda loses the serious tone. Hhahah, did that make any sense? :D BTW, have you seen their live version where they are dancing? i really like that dance, it’s catchy :D and they are even singing live! Rookie group, from the first performance, live singing!! great great great group! :DDD

        • Well, it’s true the fighting is so over the top that you can’t take it seriously. But my sensitive eyes can’t stand watching it twice :) But then like you say it’s also very different from other kpop videos and makes them stand out right from the beginning :) And I really like the song though, it’s really cool and I agree with you that this is an awesome debut! I watched a live performance thanks to your recommendation and the dance looks fun – nice foot work :D I will definitely keep an eye on them and check out their future releases ^^

    • You’re not alone. I thought it was over the top.

    • My take on LC9′s video is that they are just being boys. Boys like to fight, it is natural. My cousins who are guys, that is what they did for fun. My brother, same way. Him and his friends would just randomly fight. My nephew is 2, and he always wants to wrestle. Guys like stuff like that. In the video you can tell that they’re friends from the beginning scene and the fact that they are laughing together at the end.
      I haven’t really read into the translations of the lyrics, but I know that the song itself is actually talking about fighting. In what context, I don’t know. But it didn’t bug me at all that they were fighting, it just felt normal beyond the super powers.

    • the axe part really grossed me out x__x I was like “ouch” and cringing throughout the whole vid. Made me rather uncomfortable.

  46. as far as I know: a.d.t.o.y = all day I think of you

    don’t ask me where the I is gone in the acronym.

  47. Isabel Ruby

    i liked the fighting, but got so distracted by how unreal some of it was…. i don’t care if you’re a robot/alien!! if someone cuts you in the shoulder with an axe, you shouldn’t be able to lift your arm up!! simply because necessary muscle/ligaments etc will be severed/damaged…. plus getting in the back of the head with a brick AND a lead pipe? you go down and you STAY down cuz you are unconscious! GAHHHHHHHHHH and the fight choreography was so lovely ;n;

  48. If you guys are going to Singapore on Monday, will there be a KMM? o.O

  49. Only two things you can do with an English major….Haha

  50. Nine Muses’ fandom are MINEs (My + Nine/Nine Muses). xD

    I would love for Simon to tear that video apart; my only gripe with it was that the contrasting filters made the girls look extremely washed out and they are all super gorgeous so it was kind of sad. But love it otherwise! Their live stages are great too. :)

    Have fun/be safe in Singapore, guise! Spread the nastiness~

  51. Blueberries

    I like CBWYHTS (I hope i wrote it right XD) more: The song is so catchy and I love mv’s that have some catch in them. I like ADultTOY as well but I don’t like the mv as much as I like CBW… The song and dance are great but the mv doesn’t just do it for me. I hope that 2PM gets reviewed, not this week but maybe next or week later that. Simon has to ruin/improve that dance!!

    Then LC9. Hmm, I usually do like action and fights and stuff like that. But I’d like to see some rational reason why they are fighting and almost killing each other. And in the end they all seemed happy, although one of guys arm was almost cut of with axe XDD Well I can’t just get myself liking this.. it’s like Violence without plot. About the song: i like it but it’s name Mama beat.. sounds little weird to me XDD

    9Muses.. I like styling of the girls, they are really beatiful. But the rest isn’t just my style.

  52. So, I don’t really care for 2pm that much beyond my fondness for Wooyoung. The few songs of theirs I’ve heard I haven’t really liked, I just have a hard time getting into this group. I think A.D.T.O.Y. is probably the one I like the best. Mostly because the MV and the song kind of have a Justin Timberlake-esque feel to them, in my opinion, and I really really love me some JT lol. But really, I like this song and I like the video, very simplistic. I dig it.
    I will say this about their dance: the part where they move their hand down their side, the only thing I can picture is someone pretending to make-out with someone. Where you turn around and then run your hands up and down your back/sides like someone is hugging you. I can’t look past that image in my head watching this.

    With LC9, the only similarity I see with B.A.P’s Warrior is the set and that the lighting is the same. The sledgehammer part didn’t even feel similar, probs because one was attacking a random car and the other is trying to kill his bandmate….I read somewhere someone saying the songs MaMa Beat and Warrior sound the same, to that I disagree 100%. And even though I’m an extreme Baby, I like this better than Warrior *ducks for cover*. It is face-paced and the beat and all that is more my style. As for the MV, I love the fighting! Yay violence! Lol, jk, but really this is cool. It isn’t overly violent (such cheesy fake blood, it kills me) and the fighting is choreographed to the beat really well. I really love this song, video and this group. This is definitely the one I’m rooting for to be reviewed.
    Oh, and speaking of being Canadian (which I’m totally not), one of the guys in LC9, the one who gets hit with the axe, is apparently from Canada or at least was raised there.

    As for the 9Muses song, it wasn’t bad, but it doesn’t make me want to really look into the group. And I was distracted the whole time I tried to watch the video because all I could think was how annoying it is that the reds they have standing out as accents aren’t the same shade of red! Some have a lot more of an orange look while others were more deep reds, and that bugged me to no end. Other thing I thought of while watching this video, the short haired blonde rapper, at times her face makes me think of the twins from Boyfriend. **I have never seen anything else with this group, I don’t know anything about that girl, just to me I see similarities in their facial features with the quick glimpses this video gives you.

    • The LC9 MV didn’t remind me of Warrior at all either. It made me think of Street Fighter or Fight Club; BAP never even entered my head.

      I also love me some JT. :P

    • I have to agree with you. I don’t particularly care for 2pm either. I haven’t liked any of their singles actually (wait, I really liked the song they did for the ED of Ao no Exorcist. That was really good!), but I do like some of their other tracks. I still think they are very talented and amazing artists, but… eh. not my thing.
      Anyway, I didn’t know anyone else felt this way and still liked Wooyoung. Hhhahahhah. my goodness. (:

      • Are you a Wooyoung fan as well? I blame Dream High for it, personally. His face is just too adorable for words, I can’t help it. xD

        • ohmigosh, yes. i totally forgot he existed until I watched A.D.T.O.Y. He’s way too cute. (:

        • AudreyKoopman

          Lol me too. Mostly because 2pm has been pretty not present lately (from the music standpoint).

  53. I know you picked up 2PM for last MusicMonday, but OMG this new video… There’s so much material for a MusicMonday in this MV, my head is exploding everytime I’m watching it (and my ovaries too, but that’s another issue).

  54. Martina love your eyes makeup but the eyebrows were a bit too cartoony !

  55. Martina! I love your eye make up in this video! can you do a tutorial?! PLLLEEASSEEE! :D

  56. All day i only think of you.

  57. sexy videos i love BUT when they try too hard to be sexy it ends up being something else So no i don’t like this video,,,the music and song are good thou

  58. yes, Bootylicious is in the Oxford Dictionary. LC9′s music video was a bit jarring for me at first, but now I just can’t get the song out of my head! All the video’s are great choices, and i’ll be happy for whoever makes it. I do have to say though, out of the two title tracks for 2PM, this one is DEFINITELY my favorite!

  59. I’m flying out on monday too! From Taiwan to Hong Kong! Please tell me you’re stopping over in Hong Kong!!?

  60. After Simon suggested it, I cannot watch the video of Wild without imagining a girl barreling down a steep hill on a bed, clutching the sheets in a desperate attempt to avoid vehicular death via … bed crash? O_o

  61. I loved ADTOY better. Melody is more catchy and dance is better. At first that main dance point was a bit eem, not so good, but now I like it.
    I want B1A4 and 2PM MM, what should I do? :o

  62. Random comment: Martina, your eye makeup in this KpopCharts Update is so pretty. SO PRETTY. :D

  63. LC-9′s video didnt remind me of BAP’s warrior, but i did think of Street fighter :P

  64. I know that the video won’t come out until after voting has closed for this KMM, but have you guys seen the teaser for VIXX’s Hyde?

  65. Bootylicious was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2004.
    It’s because Beyonce, Kelly, and Michelle’s asses don’t quit and they needed a word to actually stand for that. Hence bootylicious

  66. kpopfan123

    That’s it! No more coffee for you mister! You’re switching to green tea :))) (Martina? ) I hope ADTOY makes it for MM …as for the yt description box: It’s Simon!

    Have a nice day! :)

    ♥♥♥♥♥♥

  67. I hope it isn’t “Wild” this week, because I’m bitter towards this song. I left a comment on how I thought it was making the girls into attractive eye candy that guys could look at and salivate, and do gosh knows what, and that I wish we could have seem more talent and less “sexy”. Long story short, I got a bunch of comments from guys telling me that I shouldn’t generalize women. -_- Seriously.

    • I think right now, being sexy is a kind of talent. Especially in Kpop, because all the restrictions and stuff. They have to sensual without being inappropiate. Also the fact they can sing and dance is already amazing (do you know how hard to learn that dance). And the comment of being an eye candy, well, if you got it, flaunt it? These girls worked hard to maintain their bodies, so I think they have every right to show off in every way, and us as an audience should appreciate it. I am not trying to condescending here, because I see your point. But the video is sexy, not pornography like some Kpop videos… That is not counting Ga In’s “Bloom”, because that was art, genius and courage.

      • I get what you are saying. It does take a lot of work to do what they do, and the song is good enough to show that. But I personally felt that the video didn’t allow them to do more than do provocative/sensual things. I don’t think their company should be giving them an image that is only going to attract a bunch of males that just want to stare at them. I find that really disappointing because I happen to really like the song. But, I really do get what you are saying. They are attractive women who can sing and dance, I just wish that their company catered more towards everyone rather than just (from what I gather) the male population.

        • I guess we can say that to Kpop in general. Even for male groups, we have cutesy type, the mature type, the sexy type…etc and they are all catered to the female population. And trust me, they do it far more to guy groups than girl groups, because the female population is more into Kpop and are more willing to spend more money on their franchise. Even on EYK, the KMMs are usually male groups. This is the Kpop Entertainment industry–not just music. It’s fan service. And we have to live with that. However, I do know that there are Kpop groups that break away from this trend, but rookie groups usually start off that way and once they get to a certain stage, they can experiment more.

        • Hmm. You actually have a really good point with the “boy-group-cater-to-females”. I hadn’t actually thought of that. Although, for the most part, I think guy groups have more options when it comes to their image. Cool, manly, cute, professional. To me, it always seems that girl groups are either cute or sexy, with very few straying from the usual. But, it does make the ones that don’t follow the usual formula that stand out, and obviously companies would keep going with the same images if they didn’t work.

          Thank you for making me think about this! I really appreciate it!

    • I get what you mean, but i love love love the song.

  68. Oh Simon everybody knows that the title was such bad engrish that JYP had them put it in an acronym… I mean All Day Think Of You… Just sayin’ not confirmin;. XD

  69. Amyaco

    I’m not sure if I’m the only one who thought this, but imo Mama Beat seemed really……unnecessarily violent. Like, I think it would have been cool to see epic martial-arts fighting or something, but just seeing guys beat each other to a pulp with those lovely sound effects wasn’t very enjoyable. I thought it was a little gratuitous and pointless. Like, could we have some dance scenes mixed in with the skull-bashing? Or a closeup so we can get to know the members? Or a backstory? No? Okay then…..

    • I think it’s supposed to be a metaphor for what trainees go through before they can debut in an idol group. Like, “Hey, guys, congrats on beating all your competitors to a bloody pulp! Now you have to work together so start getting along, or else :D :D :D”

  70. uuhm… Ok first off, the 2pV was incrediby awkward… like wow… I like the “Come back” song but this is just..yeah… a NO stamp from me at least. And the rookiegroup wit Mama beat, the track was incredibly funky!! but gosh that’s the most amount of blood I’ve ever seen in a Kpop MV Q__Q but I liked it… yey!

  71. So um… I’m surprised you guys didn’t mention or toss your two cents on Nega Network’s marketing campaign for LC9. I thought it was funny how they piggy backed this debut off the success of the Brown Eyed Girls (going so far as to say they’re the male version of them). Really shows where they’re putting all their eggs :3

    *ahem* I really enjoyed the LC9 song!! I didn’t even know they were the famed “Brown Eyed Boys” (that was their nickname pre-debut), because I am notoriously slow when it comes to K-Pop news (I know I’m in the minority, but I enjoy K-Pop the most for the music, and then the visuals and derpyness :3). I haven’t seen the video till now, but oh my Lord, does that really look like B.A.P’s Warrior. It’s a lot more extreme and badass, though… I kind of prefer Warrior over this song, if I had to compare; something about the “What’s your B? What’s your A? What’s your P?” part that gets me everytime (I start singing Bunnies are Puffy like a nub XD I have a higher voice for a dude, so I can sing that song almost as well as Martina :3).

    ONTO THE OTHER SONGS!!! I’ heard A.D.T.O.Y before I knew that it was 2PM’s “real” comeback, and I must say that I like it a lot more than Come Back When You Hear This Song. CBWYHTS was really subdued, and while it goes in line with 2PM’s more mature concept and look, it wasn’t what I was looking for (and before any crazy superfans try to flame me, I enjoyed the song, it just wasn’t what I was expected >_<). A.D.T.O.Y…. is great!! That video, though… XD

    *ahem again* Wild!! I don't have much to say about it. I like the song and the video is scandalous (by Korea's standards). Like I said, not much :3

  72. OMG Martina Your eyes look GORGEOUS!! Please put up a tutorial for your sexy vampire-ish glamorous make up on Open the Happy Channel for us!!!

    • They said that we’ll find out about her makeup soon! I’m guessing it’s a really special video with other people and/or photoshoot for something, just wait!

  73. Seriously love the 2PM song, like a lot.

    • I fell in love immediately, and I just can’t get over it. Junho is 100% perfect in it, and he isn’t even my bias. His vocals, especially the falsetto, are all perfect. The dancing is great, and he’s freaking handsome and beautiful as always. My only complaint with him is that his pants are clearly not tight enough. Dat ass!
      My complaint overall is with Nichkhun’s falsetto. It’s really not pleasing to listen to, especially after Junho’s flawless part immediately preceeding it.

  74. sometimes I read the blog post and wonder… just a little…

  75. unicornsgalaxy

    Martina? Did you do something different with your eyebrows? I couldn’t stop looking at them trying to decide if they were different. They seem thicker? More filled in? Is it just cause you went with more brown/neutral make up so they stand out more?

  76. I died a little at A Donkey Tickles Onew’s Yoohoo. You guise, seriously. Stahp it!!! XD

    Quick notes about the videos this week:

    - 2PM’s ADTOY is so much better than Come Back… (Too Long; Didn’t Write), if we’re talking song-wise.
    - LC9′s music video is R-19 so, yeah, that explains the Tekken-Street-Fighter fight scenes. I really like them too, but if I’m gonna choose my favorite rookie of 2013, it’s HISTORY. Dreamer is still flawless.
    - Nine Muses. Sexy sexy. This is my favorite song from them, second to Ticket. I don’t think they could top Ticket.

    Anyways, still voting for Bilasa for KMMs. Leggo! :D

  77. simon & martina why didnt put shinhwa’s this love to kpop chart? the mv is super sexy! :(

  78. I’m really into Wild. I’m playing it on loop, nonstop, like… 30 times a day.

  79. no tarzan?! or shinhwa?!

  80. as i watched the LC9 video, all i kept thinking was…”the first rule of fight club is that you do not talk of fight club”….m pretty sure that goes with recording it and putting it on the interweb!

  81. ”Bootylicious was added to the Oxford English Dictionary (defined as “(of a woman) sexually attractive”) in 2004.”
    Hohooho, oh yes it actually is, Simon!

  82. this update was hilarious!

    …and our poor mayor is just misunderstood. he was just celebrating 4/20 like the rest of us lol

  83. Simon, don’t do domestic violence at home after watching LC9′s MV alright… XD MARTINA PLEASE BE SAFE!!!

  84. yanagiba yusuke22

    S&M… do u make KMM vid for next week?
