OKOKOK WAIT. We didn’t include Batoost’s “Shadow” in this week’s videos because we filmed this on Thursday, and Batoost came out on Friday. Hell: WHY SO LATE? Anyhow, here’s who we talked about:

B.A.P. “Hurricane” – Vote for it Here

 

The Engrish of this song is too damn high

Infinite “Destiny” – Vote for it Here

 

Oh man, this is great. Really great. I want to review it. But I want to know more about Version A before we make a decision as to whether we’ll choose this or postpone it till later. Anyone know if Version A will come out? If so, when? If we talk about this, we won’t talk about Version A, similar to Exo’s Wolf. We can’t review the same song twice. So what should we do? What if we delay reviewing this and then Big Bang and Girls Generation come out with two videos? Infinite will be screwed and you’ll hate us forever. It’ll be like the Chaser all over again. So many choices, guise. Why can’t labels just release the videos at once, you know?

Xia “Incredible” – Vote for it Here

 

Xia! I see you rolling down your sexy windows at us. That’s clearly a reference to your old dance from Ayy Gurl, isn’t it? You even have a dispassionate American rapper featuring on your song. Quincy’s lines aren’t as memorable as Kanye’s, though. WHAT’S YO FRIENS ATTITUDE WHY SHE SO DAM RUDE HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. Oh man, that was classic. Also, my apologies for being so out of touch with Western music, but who the hell is Quincy anyways? Is he a big deal now? It’s hard for us to keep up to date with Western pop music, because A) We don’t hear it here and B) We barely give a shit. Ha! I don’t think I’ve ever listened to Chris Brown or Drake before in my life, really. I did listen the hell out of Frank Ocean last year and Kendrick Lamar, but they’re not really mainstream, are they? I don’t know. Point is, Quincy bored me, Junsu would have done better without him, but would have done BEST if I was involved. Just saying…

  1. at first I thought he was saying the Louvre is on fire. i was very confused :P

  2. ArtEdJojo

    Um…I’ve loved Xia since TVXQ but um…while I love the song…hm…how to put this…do the people in this video realize they are about 10 years too old to be wearing those cloths? Not happy with the visuals.

    There are clips of the A version of Destiny on fan cams from their One Great Step tour, but it looks like they just have a few scenes included with them standing among ruined airplanes. INSPIRITS were all hoping there was a cool story line that we were missing, but sadly, it was just extra shots of them looking fantabulous… oh wait, that’s good, too. Just go for version B, IMHO.

  4. Michikohime

    Please, don’t drop down the Kpop Charts Update segment, I need it sooo much, it makes my weeks easier to go through, really.

  5. Hey, we love the Engrish XD

  6. I dont get the B.A.P. reference D:

  7. for the ver.A Woolim ent used 1MILLION DOLLARS ONE MILLION

  8. Amanda Brohman

    Gosh, guys, I don’t know, I’m as torn as you are. O.O So many gold mine videos, lol. Uhm, I guess good luck choosing. Though I do lean more tends Junsu. He just seems so nice, hehe.

  16. charlieparrot9

    I miss your longer Kpop Music Mondays too :( But please include points you’ve not got time for in your video on your EYK site page!! <3 It's always great hearing S&Ms opinions even if hearing all of them would perhaps make the video too long (really I just want an extended talk about Incredible XDDDD).

  17. Miko Satou

    I miss the longer KMMs…
    Anyways, my vote went to all 3 *lol* So much for this KMM…I don’t care who wins xD
    It is going to be fun either way ^-^

  18. lllYOURS_NYXlll

    Go ahead and do infinite cuz i just came back from Xia’s Incredible concert in BKK. And Incredible when performed live is real incredible that it however you review it, it wont make it any less incredible :P

  19. lunibelle

    The best thing about “the loof is on fire” is Himchans straight face :D

  20. Michikohime

    “The loofs is on fire”

    I had to stop the video because I laughed so hard.

    Gosh!

    Thanks BAP

    kawaii_candie

    is it just me or does anyone else feels like Xia is channelling G-Dragon in this video?? especially with his fashion choices? :/

    all great videos though, looking forward to KMM!!

    PS: i liked the longer KMMs! KMMs can never be too long, guise! :p

  23. Sunflower

    The first time I heard Junsu’s Incredible I didn’t like it, then I listened to it again, and I absolutely LOVED it! Maybe the first time I was distracted by the fabulousness of the MV. Infinite’s Destiny is amazing as well. It wasn’t like their other songs, which always has a catchy chorus sung by all the members, but I liked it anyway. B.A.P.’s Hurricane was ok. Maybe it will grow on me. Their debut song Warrior is still my favorite.

  24. Never heard of Quincy until now and I live in the US. Lol guess I spend too much time listening to kpop. You could totally take him Simon!! haha :)

    • Jane Patterson

      He’s mostly known for having famous parents/step-parents and being on MTV’s “My super sweet 16.” His singles haven’t gone much of anywhere.

      Gonna hafta saw it’s a downgrade from the fabulous Flowsik from Aziatix who was in Tarantellagra.

  25. Leticia.A.II

    I’m fine with either Junsu’s Incredible or B.A.P’s Hurricane. Both videos are Music Monday GOOOOOLD!

  26. On the topic of EXO’s Wolf, couldn’t you guys just maybe do an Open the Happy of a video reaction, or just a blog post minus the video? I’m so curious of what you guys think!

  27. Anybody remember Kim Hyun Joong’s new song with Jay Park?

  28. infinite

    STOPPPPPPP!!! Im ready to wait to the ver.A if you promise to review It!!!!!!!

  29. Olivia Ray

    in the B.A.P song…. are they in LA??

  30. alameaalaula

    as much as i would LOVE to see BAP reviewed as i am a baby, but DAMN Junsu’s MV was much more glorious and i immediately loved it upon first hearing! Quincy’s part was a bit of a turnoff though, but still JUNSU FOR THE WIN!!

  31. Quincy is somewhat P.diddy’s step son….. you see the mom of was p.diddy’s on and off girlfriend…. so they have no blood relationship but the consider eachother stepson/dad.

  32. VIP_Aplus

    You should review B.A.P though because they are one of my most favorite groups ever :3 (this is a very valid reason)

  33. I have to say, although all three videos in the top 3 spots are great songs/videos. I think that Xia’s Incredible has the most material for a KMM. (And I secretly totally want to see FanMan in a gold suit. >.>) And even though it is hard to wait for Destiny Ver. A, I think that it might be the best course.

    Anyways, that is my 2 cents. ^_^

  34. JESSICA PALMER

    i didnt know who quincy was until xia came out with this mv/song

  35. JESSICA PALMER

    quincy isnt a big deal in america at all … review BAP :)

  36. RubyRaisins

    Okay, so I think BAP should be reviewed for KMM- and that is really hard for me to admit because I am in LOVE with Xia’s new track. Like listening to it on repeat all day in love. Even Quincy’s awkward and totally lame rap doesn’t deter me from this awesome song.Okay, to begin:

    BAP: I’ve always liked them and their aggressive tracks and this song was decent. If it came down to KMM being strictly about the song itself, I probably wouldn’t go with BAP (that would go to XIA). But KMM is about the VIDEO and BAP has dropped a hot mess in your lap, Simon and Martina. Combine the freakishly high amount of Engrish with their attempt to appear badass, and I think you’ve got a winner.

    Infinite: I’ve always been a bit indifferent about Infinite. They’ve never really caught my attention before- until this song. This is a really great, really solid song. It actually sounds like one song- not a patchwork of several different genres. Sometimes the quilting method works, sometimes it doesn’t. I like what Infinite went with. I will definitely be adding it to my ipod. As for the video, if BAP doesn’t get voted in, Infinite’s definitely comes in second place. What it lacks in WTF’ness that BAP has, it makes up for in sheer cheesiness. Everything- from the dance moves to the acting just reeks of stinky, stinky cheese.

    XIA: As mentioned above, I am totally in love with this song. I’ve added it to my jogging playlist and it really helps me power through. The video is okay- it was cool to see the variety of the backup dancers. I will say though that the dancers had completely different expressions on their faces than I am used to in KPOP videos. Like serious grinning and laughing going on. It was refreshing- a big difference from the “Oooh I’m so sexy but not supposed to outshine the main star” I see so often. As for Quincy’s rap, I wonder if it was kept simple on purpose. This is a Korean Pop song, made for Korean audiences. Or maybe I am giving him too much credit. Anyway, the song is great, the video is fun, but not KMM worth.

    Okay, finished with the novel. Have a good day!

  37. The Engrish in Hurricane…you know you want to talk about it . Hurricane. Loof… with the Bonus: sexual dances…and a pole. This should be very convincing

  38. askseungri

    NOOOO!! Don’t cut KMM, they don’t need to be shorter!!! 10+ is perfect~ Just keep doing what you guys do. KMM is one of my favorite parts of my week. It makes Monday’s bearable. (Wed and Thursdays are awesome to here at eyk!)

    • yanagiba yusuke22
      yanagiba yusuke22

      agreed… the shorter kmm is not enough… like S&M skip mny part to talk abt…

    • Actually they have been shorter for a while now. And it is true that the majority of people prefer shorter videos. If you are a fan of EYK it would not matter how long it is, but the majority of viewers are actually casual watchers. Also, that is sort of the purpose of the bloopers. If you want more you can always watch the bloopers.

      • askseungri

        Such a shame…I’ve noticed it’s been happening for a while now. There is SO much to talk about and when it’s shorter they miss A LOT of it. They just barely graze the surface which makes me want more. Fine, for the casual watchers sake it maybe better. But for the fanbase of eyk and the kpop groups they review it isn’t. Though I bet we ALL can agree that we rather watch a slightly longer video than read a LENGTHY blog post!!! *cough* TL;DR *cough, cough* ;-) XD As their videos shrink, their blog posts increase. :-( It’s just a shame because we’re missing out on some amazing discussions, interpretations, and above all SKITS!

  39. Junsu should be classified as a national treasure or something. Seriously.

    Wow, I rarely agree with Simon but I think Incredible is the best song of the three. Although I am more of a BAP fan than a Junsu fan. I’ll keep voting for Junsu (although any of the three would be great).
