Girl’s Day “Female President” – Vote for it Here!

Okokokokokok hold up. I’m writing this post after having filmed the KpopCharts, so I can’t go back to ridicule what I’m about to ridicule. This dance is called the “nine-tailed fox dance”? What the flock? They are wiggling their asses back and forth. There’s no name for that dance. It’s just called “shaking your ass.” Giving it a fancy pants name doesn’t make the dance any more special. Hay: Girl’s Day, I got your next dance for you. It’s called the Norwegian Gold Medal Skiing Dance. Sound complicated? It’s not. Make two fists, bend your elbows, and bring your fists towards your hips over and over again, like you’re skiing. Or you can just call it the hump-dance for short. PFFFFFT. It’s just like people who run their own blogs and call themselves the CEO of their company. Giving it a special name doesn’t make it more special! WARRRBARRRGGLL! Or is there more to the dance than just the butt shake? Please tell me. Sorry if I seemed to harsh. This just seemed a bit ridiculous to me….

Crayon Pop “Bar Bar Bar” – Vote for them Here!

Ok, so watch this video, enjoy it, and then look at this stick that I’m going to flash in your eyes (that was a Men in Black reference, by the way).

We like Crayon Pop. We liked them since Dancing Queen, which was also pretty fun. We weren’t sure if they were a one-trick pony, though, and if they’d go to some boring aegyo after getting some recognition, but BARBARBAR is still as fun, if not more fun, than Dancing Queen. OH GOD I’M SO WORRIED ABOUT CRAYON POP! Well, not really worried. I’m not going to lose sleep over them. I’m just saying, whenever they come out with a new video, I’m going to approach it with hesitation, with a feeling that – yes – I know they can make some awesome, fun videos that I’ll love, but also with the feeling that if they fall of the horse I’ll be so disappointed.

Question: is “fall off the horse” even a phrase? I googled it. It’s not a phrase. What am I thinking about? I don’t know, but I’m sure you guise understood what I said, right? It makes sense, doesn’t it? I hope so!

Anyhow, it’s 2:30AM right now on Thursday and I should be sleeping because tomorrow we’re all going on an Eatyourkimchi road trip and I’m too excited to go to sleep. YARRP!

LED Apple “Bad Boys” – Vote for them Here!

BOOOOOOOOBS

  1. Actually, the biggest issue I have is the dancing….it’s not very latin at all. It’s just all out sexy hip wagging. And not enough couple dancing unless you count boob girl. LOL. You would never go dancng with that dress on unless you wanted to hold it up! Also, that drum break was soooo…awkward. When you take a solo it’s supposed to stay…in time? lol

  2. The phrase you were looking for was “fall off the wagon”

  3. Watched the update and something was said for every video. Then I read the comment part and the last one had only ” booobs ” as a comment which made it look kind of unfair.
    There were small parts of “boob” shots but they were a small part I noticed, in comparison to the whole video.

    On the other hand, such a comment may wake someones curiousity and make them click on the play button xD

    I am not sure what the exact goal of the comment was but, it seemed unfair to me – in a way –

    Latin dance is all about the hip action not the boobs. They should of hired a Latina dancer for this video. To teach Hanbyul how to move those hips. I’m sure there are a lot of us here that would of volunteered. LOL

  6. I’m laughing so much at the Ore Ore Ore (which literally means “pray, pray, pray”) and the Viva la loca, loca part (which means Viva the crazy woman, crazy woman) …

  7. I do see your point but, just associating presidency with a visual look and choreography like that seems little wrong to me :( In Finland we elected a female president in 2000 and re-elected her in 2006, so I know some of the extra hardships they would go through and I don’t think that it is suitable material for a sexy pop song.

  9. I also love Crayon Pop! But my favorite is still Bing Bing :) My bf thinks they’re a little weird… which I don’t get cuz frankly, he’s on the weird side too :p But yeah, they always come out with something different and unique which I really appreciate. Plus, they’re always busting their butts performing on the streets since they don’t get as much time performing on Inkigayo, Music Core, etc.

  11. Which ones do you mean? Girls Day or Crayon Pop? They are most likely using circle lenses. Martina did a video about them before: http://www.eatyourkimchi.com/wtf-circle-lenses/

    Also, not all Asians have single fold eyelids (epicanthic fold) and also eyelid surgery is the most popular procedure in Korea.

    3 years ago
    • Yes that is true! ^_^ My korean gf had the double eyelids without surgery and also used these circle lenses until she got lasik eye surgery so she doesn’t need contacts or glasses.

  12. I vote for Girl’s Day !! Eventhough I think it is a little bit too sexy (not a problem for me), the song itself is really really good :D

  13. Hey Simon…by any chance…are you…a boob man? And for real that girl was all boobs, some crotch but all boob. I’m still not sure they focused in close enough. XD

  14. Crayon Pop is so cute and playful and whimsical. It’s nice to not have a girl group flash me their boobs, ass and crotch at me. Sorry Nasties I just can’t take any more wide splayed legs heres my crotch in your face dances. Anywho back to Crayon Pop their dance reminded me of watching the employees at hot dog on a stick squish the lemons with the pump for the lemonade. Man I hope someone knows what I’m talking about.

    LED Apples song made me want to get up and dance. But I have no energy from being outside in 100 degree weather, surrounded by thousands of people watching a Bush concert tonight, FYI all these years later they still kick ass live! The only part of the song I didn’t really like was the Vida Loca Loca, because all I got was Ricky Martin stuck in my head.

    Gorsh I need a shower, Gatorade and 10 hours of sleep.

  15. That Crayon pop MV reminds me of an old Mazda MX3 commercial we had in the Netherlands back in the 90’s:

  16. Crayon Pop’s mv reminds me of j-pop. haha Anyway it’s really cuuuute and not like in a fake aegyo way so I get what you mean Martina! The song is fun too! ^^ As for Girl’s Day, I really like the song but not sure about the video. I don’t mind that they’re shaking their asses though (some people are so harsh about that :/). I laughed when watching Led Apple’s video… I mean the boob shots… just… XD (the song has bass solo, yay!) Oh and it’s pronounced “led” not l.e.d.

  17. Heyyy!!!

    “It’s just like people who run their own blogs and call themselves the CEO of their company. Giving it a special name doesn’t make it more special!” Speaking of CEO’s … is there a chance you’ll become one? (‘_’) there are a lot of groups that have potential and that are waiting to be recruited (I think you know who I’m talking about…) ;( …. sorry if my imagination ran wild there … it would be so cool!!!! > . . < ….

      • It’s now going to drive me crazy figuring out which phrase Martina (I assume it was Martina) meant. “Fall off the wagon” is what she was most likely thinking, but that doesn’t go with what she was trying to say. I’ve heard “Get back on the horse”. Oh my God, things like this MAKE ME CRAZY!!!!!!

  19. So, LED Apple’s “Bad Boys” – I’m hearing it in my sleep, it’s that catchy. Even when CNBlue is playing in my headphones, LED Apple’s playing in my head!
    p.s. And they *do* pronounce it like the heavy metal, in homage to their heroes Led Zeppelin. HanByul recently reiterated that point in an interview with a German media outlet….

  24. OMFG YES Crayon Pop!! These girls are so adorable! I had Bing Bing stuck in my head for months after I first heard it IT’S SO CATCHY! I really wish they would become more popular. They have a simple fun Wonder Girls-ish feel to them that’s really missing in K-pop’s current line up.

    • You read the Prophet blog too?! (Well now its Arcadey but whateves) Yeah Jacques’s reviews are always over the top but it’s good humor and it did get Crayon Pop some more fans

  25. The boobage was not nearly as gratuitious as you were making it out to be, Simon! But perhaps I’m too used to American music videos, haha! And thanks for introducing me to that Girl’s Day song — it’s so catchy and fun, even if the mv doesn’t match.

    • I thought so as well… Maybe it’s because Simon and Martina have been really sanitized by Korea? From the way they talk about it, it makes us seem like sex obsessed freaks by allowing pretty much anything on tv.

      3 years ago
  26. I think it’s called the Nine Tailed Fox because most of the time they’re doing the booty shaking they have part of their dress that goes down like a tail… Thought it was kind of obvious.

    Edit: BTW what happened to the cheesy mishmash titles these used to have?

  27. wow i think crayon pop might be the first Korean girl band i actually like.

  28. OK; I really like Led Apple, especially their “TIme’s Up” rocked my mind. But usually they have little bit more pop/swing kind of music than rocky. I like this song but music video just makes me feel… awkward..

    Because they play more like latin feel I think that they should get dancer to dance it! Seriously come on! Those “dancers” are just like “Oooh, good song, lets, lets.. lets dance awkwardly”. I wouldn’t mind if their would have had one latin pair to dance that song.. For real, it wouldn’t take too much attention from the song and the boys if it would have make it right…

    And this song remained me about something.. It’s another song waaaayy back from early 90′ or earlier ?? Not sure but it’s Ricky Martin’s “Livin’ La Vida Loca”, and that is really latin XDD –>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p47fEXGabaY

    But I’m still glad that the boys comeback ^w^ Though I don’t know will I love this song, but boys are really talented and funny, so I hope all best to them ;))

  31. LedApple is by fare my favorite song and group of this chart updates. I have had their “baby come on come on come on come on nanananananaaaa” stuck in my head.

    and boobs Simon…….really? I was expecting …well i donno what i was expecting and it wasn’t that. and now to laugh about that becuase I thought it was hilarious.

  32. Speaking of names of dances, Crayon Pop’s signature jumping move in Bar Bar Bar is known as the “Five-Cylinder Engine” dance! Anyways I’m so happy you guys love Crayon Pop too! :D

  33. Yeeaaaaaaaaaah that’s a little harsh on Girl’s Day. Groups can’t name their dance in a fancy way? I don’t think it’s simply a booty shake. It’s a modified booty shake. I think the name for their chorus booty shake is cute. Like, why the hell not call it the nine-tailed fox dance? Nobody’s claimed it and imagine if you have nine-tails and you can shake it — then it’ll look like that. What about the time when someone sang “shake it like a polaroid picture” or “shake ya tail feather”. Same diff. For Girl’s Day’s case, it’s “shake ya foxy nine-tails” (or something with a better sound to it).

  37. No Bangtan… again. Oh well. As far as these three songs go I LOVE LEDApple’s song the most. I recently got into them through their music note covers and Hanbyul’s voice is amazing! i actually really love Girl’s Day’s song. I find myself replaying it though I’m not to crazy about the video. And Crayon Pop, I find them adorable.

    • But this is “what’s new in k-pop” – BTS has been out for like, two weeks now.

      3 years ago
      • That is true. But I could have sworn – and I might be imagining this – that they’ve put mv’s on here that were at least two weeks old before. But again, I could be totally mistaken.

        3 years ago
        • No you’re right. They did a chart update for Wonder Boyz’s Tarzan about 3 weeks after it came out.

  38. why is bap not included in the update? do ya’ll not like this as well? it’s not a very bap-ish song that’s true but it’s a good song.. im not a bap fan so i dont have expectation for the group. when they come out with good music, i just appreciate to it as it is, not thinking about who sang it, how should they have sang it or even who is singing it.
