2NE1 “Falling in Love” – Vote for it Here!

 

Touch me over here
Touch me touch me over there!

Whooooaaa…this is so catchy! It’s exceptionally un-2NE1 isn, but damn is this song ever fun. We even catch Soo Zee staring at her computer and singing it randomly, then yelling at herself for singing it, because it’s stuck in her head and she doesn’t want it to be stuck in her head. Though this definitely doesn’t feel like the 2NE1 we’re used to, it’s still a fun song. How

MYNAME “Baby I’m Sorry” – Vote for it Here!

 

Funny side note about the video: did anybody notice the hitting sound effect? It was the same sound effect used over and over again, regardless of what part of the body they were hit in. Face, stomach, balls: all make the same sound! Yay for lazy editing! We notice these kinds of things, being in front of the computer editing all day.

And – hey – we can’t be the only ones who thought of Big Bang’s “Lies” with this song and video. We don’t have the terms at our disposal to explain why the similarity strikes us, but it definitely has the vibe of “Lies,” no? Come on! Admit it! You thought it, too, right? Right?

Also, this is the first song by MYNAME we’ve heard, and – hell – it’s got a lot of views! 1.3 million views from a band we haven’t really listened to before? Not that we’re the be-all-and-end-all of Kpop, but we try to keep up to date with Kpop as much as possible, which isn’t easy considering the vast amount of Kpop bands everywhere, with the major percentage of them not doing too well. So, yeah. 1.3 million views is pretty rad. I’m impressed. Gonna check out some more MYNAME stuff. BRB.

Jay Park “I Like 2 Party” – Vote for it Here!

 

What a super original name for a song, “I like to party” with a 2! No seriously, I bet that was because “I like To Party” was used so many times that it would create too many search hits and drown out his song, so I’m serious when I say it’s a smart idea for a song name. Unless I’m just pulling at thin air and Jay Park was all like, “yeahhh man, instead of ‘to’ let’s write ‘2’, ’cause it be so fly”. I can see him saying that too. Anyways, the point of all this is that this is a good old fashion club song right here. I’m not sure if it’s just because we’ve listened to so many kpop songs, but we’ve been disappointed this year in terms of finding kpop songs that were truly addictive and enjoyable to listen to, but I do like this song! It doesn’t blooooooow us away like “Smoky Girl” did, but this is still a great song without any bizarre breakdowns or unpredictable beat changes. The 2:41 mark does have a little rap/dubstepish breakdown, but the overarching sound of the song still lingers in the background. The chorus is really built up fantastically before it just BOOMS. And I have to say I had a good laugh at the comments on our site because someone mentioned how it wasn’t a Jay Park video without him showing his abs, but I couldn’t tell if it meant Jay Park didn’t show his abs this video or if he did show his abs, but once I watched the video, I understood. Jay Park sure loves showing off his abs. Hahaha!

  1. I’m really starting to not like 2NE1. I feel like that they just come across as spoiled girls and not musicians. After “I Love You” video, I just felt like they were really full of themselves and out of touch with reality. : /

  2. I love the whole Falling in Love concept, mv, styling, make-up, dance moves, you name it. Simply Bum Boggling

  3. Joon meets stripper pole will always be relevant. They are not however helping with this Lee Joon crush I’ve begun to harvest the past few weeks. These clips, but especially his Black Swan clips from SNL have killed my ovaries and yet still managed to impregnate me multiple times. XD

    PS Lee Joon with a drill causes ovary explosion on it’s own.

    • Before Smoky Girl I knew some MBLAQ songs, decided on G.O. as my bias, thought Seungho and Thunder where cute and that was it. Since this comeback, everything went topsy turvy especially since I started watching their shows. Seungho destroyed not just my MBLAQ bias list but ultimate one as well, G.O. moved to second but now Joonie is threatening to over take G.O. and my heads about to explode. XD Joon is not my usual type so I’m completely off balance with my new found Joonie crush.

      • It’s all relevant, the six degree’s of male kpop stripper poles, all roads lead to Lee Joon.

        You and Joonie could have hand walking/waddling races together :) By the way his ability to do that while and after jumping of the table is very awe inspiring. I would think landing in that position would hurt a lot, a lot. His random humming bird behavior is one of the things I adore about him. I’m only midway through Sesame Player so I have a feeling my crush wouldn’t be dissipating as I continue watching it, in fact I’m sure it will only grow. In episode 5 of Hello Baby Joon takes care of the kids on his own and yeah, it made this crush grow exponentially when I saw that episode about a month ago.

        One day I will accept and embrace this crush, lol but for the moment I’m still fighting it…XD

      • You mock my suffering?! XD JK You’ve had a front row seat to my MBLAQ roller coaster of bias emotions, possibly helping it along the tracks especially with Seungho. Joonie’s started with that damn smirk! You know the one, the one you specifically put as the second gif. Seeing his multi-layered personality on shows caused quite the collision of my emotions.

        I’d actually seen all these strip poll videos of Joonie previously but they had no affect on me at those times. But now, now it’s a whole new story. You’re killing me here you know this right? With these lovely gif gifts. Second to that smirking gif, I love the one with the birdy…it’s the kind of thing I’d do….

        And OMG why did Joonie hit himself with a hammer? This big dork.

      • What is he hitting himself with in the last one? o_O

    • The outlook’s not good then. Every time I try to smoother them it just seems to inflame them. I had my MBLAQ bias’s set and was content and then out of nowhere Lee Joon. Just BAM!

  4. Apparently, it’s the same person who directed B.A.P’s One Shot MV. I’m lazy to Google a name tho xp
    Anyhoo, I really hope S&M review MYNAME cuz that video is the shiznit XD

  5. *sniff sniff* WAAAHHHHH (T^T) Holy Crap was that MYNAME MV depressing. I’m completely loving the song but I don’t think I can rewatch the vid for my sanity. I get where you’re reminded of Lies though. The song itself has a very similar vibe.

    I loved the Jay Park song too…and I liked elements of the MV too but overall I’m just not crazy about women dancing around in their underwear :/

  6. Lmao at Joon getting his smolder on like a real stripper and then Eunhyuk derping around, getting his jacket stuck on the pole…but I’d still choose Hyuk xD

  7. Simon I know you have beat box skills but you went with the thigh slapping, why?

  8. Not only do I sing the messagie part all the time still, but the very beginning of the song (“You gotta message”) used to be my ringtone on my old phone! I have to figure out how to set the ringtones on my new phone because I need that back in my life haha.

  9. One of the main guys in the 2NE1 video is a good friend of TOP and GD, so I’m assuming they are friends with 2NE1 as well and that is probably why he was in their video.

    Two of the gangsters in the MYNAME video were just on Running Man Episode 150 (Choo Sung Hoon, and Kim Dong Hyun). It seems like Running Man is how I learn about non-kpop actors/actress and popular sports figures in Korea.

  10. For this KMM , my vote went to 2NE1… for the next KMM, it goes to Ailee…

  11. Hello guise!

    “Touch me over here
    Touch me touch me over there!

    Whooooaaa…this is so catchy! It’s exceptionally un-2NE1 isn, but damn is this song ever fun.

    I can imagine that XDD. I think I’d do the same. It can’t be helped right? with Simon singing the chorus all day in the office. Spudgy must’ve learned the song by now too :))

    “I’m not sure if it’s just because we’ve listened to so many kpop songs, but we’ve been disappointed this year in terms of finding kpop songs that were truly addictive and enjoyable to listen to..”

    This year has been so far a pretty good one for K-music (saying “Kpop” it kind of makes me cringe… cause usually when I think of kpop I think of all those fanservicy kind of videos.. I don’t wanna mix the groups that I like with the fanservicy ones…in that regard…it’s been a bad year for kpop) U-Kiss and Ubeat…Crayon Pop with “Bar,Bar,Bar” …D-Unit got two songs out to which I got pretty easily addicted to…VIXX with “Hyde”…then BTS(love their album) …then Kim Ye Rim (though I didn’t like “All right” that much… “Alice” and “Like you know it all” are my faves from her album) ..and SLEEQ – “Lightless”….

    Out of the three songs I think I like “Baby, I’m Sorry” the most… though I’m kind of turned off by the video – . –

    ♥♥♥♥♥♥

  12. guys, are you not doing silly titles anymore for the k-pop chart updates?? I liked those!

    this was a pretty good one.

    1. I don’t understand what you thought was “un-2NE1-like” in their video… besides the reggea vibe of the song, it didn’t seem that much of a stretch to me.

    2. I’ve been seeing adds for MYNAME everywhere here in Japan all year, so maybe you guys haven’t heard of them cuz they were busy promoting over here? who knows… still, that’s a pretty damn high budget video for an unpopular band! actually, there used to be a lot of videos like this when i first got into k-pop (over 10 years ago… i’m old). maybe it’s a trend that’s coming back?? the song was nice though. it’s a shame we can’t really hear much of it since it keeps going into cut-scenes…

    3. i was surprised by the Jay Park song. Honestly, he usually annoys the crap out of me, but both this song and video were pretty snazzy!

    looking forward to see who you pick for KMM!

  13. Yeah, agreed. So sneaky! :P

  14. You guys should check out A-JAX’s “Insane”! The mv is cool! :D
    Did MYNAME fans cry when they watched th mv because I’m not even their fan but I think my eyes got a bit teary. XD (I’m emotional especially when in comes to dying… OTL) The blond guy who was afraid became my fav. He seems cute. haha
    I wanna see Jay Park pole dancing so I vote for YES!

  15. Yes, that does seem to be a little strange. Hope it never happens to me. Why

  16. Kinda of want to vote for “Baby I’m sorry” just because of some hardcore man thighs mid-video …>O>;;

    ANG

  17. Garsh darn it Simon. I didn’t hear it before but I know exactly what you mean about MyName’s “Baby, I’m Sorry” having a BigBang “Lies” feel to. I don’t know how to explain it either, but it surely does have that feel. Like you said, not that they’re the same, just the tone and beat are reminiscent.

  18. I watched MyName’s MV a gazillion times ’cause it’s so awesome but I never noticed the sound effects and I am here laughing so so badly!!

  19. No Ailee? But I just saw the MyName video for the first time and it was such a good MV. I was kinda blown away because lately I don’t see many good plot-oriented MVs. So kudos to them for that!

  20. mayb the mv wwas still fresh n they already film this week chart update b4 the mv out…

  21. next week?? if jay park can beat xiah, infinite….

  22. “How”…what guise?? Or was that just a typo?? kkk!
