Hey guise!

So, we were contacted by myISH, a channel on YouTube, to do a Kpop video countdown. You might know Michael Buckley of What The Buck doing a video on the Top 7 Kpop Songs You Should Know Right Now. We remember it, all right, because a bunch of people sent us the video asking if we agree with it, but most people were just happy to see someone not living in Korea talking about Kpop, especially considering how mega huge his channel is compared to ours and how many more people he could influence.

Anyhow, long story short: now WE just did a video for myISH on Kpop as well, to fill in for Michael Buckley while he…um…eats poutine? Actually, we don’t know where he is. We never actually spoke with him. We’d like, to though (Michael, if you’re reading this. Hi!) but we were more than happy to add some of our bizarre kpop knowledge to the list. We wanted to try something different, though, something more fun. Our list is called the 7 Most Bizarre Kpop Videos You Need to Watch Now and we wanted to pick music videos that showed off a more quirky and fun side of kpop, over just the impressive dances and super hot bodies and faces that Kpop is marketed for. So, we don’t want to spoil the list, but be sure to check it out here and let us know if you agree or disagree and what awesome videos we missed!

  1. haha.. I loved B2ST’s version of YAYAYA~

  2. I miss the old TVXQ T^T

  3. These are awesome!

  4. I want to have Martina’s unicorn costume!!!

  5. but…what about Thumbs Up?!

  6. Definitely should have included ‘Norazo’ ^___^

  7. Balloons isn’t bizarre, is cute u.u really cute u.u one of the cutest MV ever!! 

  8. In Epik High’s “Fan”, the girl puts the boy through a washing machine to clean him up, and then later sends him off strapped onto a – wait for it – rocket.

    Simon, Martina, this video was way more bizarre than joom joom like a locket, and really ought to have made it to your list.


  9. Martina, you would make a super adorable unicorn~

  10. Mostly sad that Miryo’s Dirty wasn’t on the list. It’;s definitely bizarre

  11. A few more MV’s come to mind. Although, I don’t know that I could kick any that you said off the list. And I’m pretty sure your top 3 were spot on! Great list!

  12. Buck is adorable but it’s been a while since I last watched his stuff. Didn’t know he did something for K-pop! Anyway, yeah, you guys do seem a bit toned down in this video… Still, it’s probably a good intro vid. Maybe next time there can be a Top 10 Epic K-Pop videos or something.

  13. daniela campo

    i just read the comment before mine.. and i just realize rokkugo was totally ment to be in the ish list.. but wasnt :(

  14. OMG OMG I just went to watch Pajama Party and Rokkugo and Cooking Cooking
    I laughed like a mad woman in front of my very serious mum.

    Those are REALLY SUPER BIZZARE MUSIC VIDEOS that made me laugh over more than some of the videos there

  15. I felt that B1A4′s ‘baby goodnight’ deserved to make the list over ‘beautiful target’ but I honestly love them both ^_^

  16. I would have add thumbs up by Crispy Crunch because the ending is just epic and so unexpected >.<

  17. Micheal Buckley is really annoying, but his list is awesome!

  18. Where did Rokkugo go!? It was like third or second in the voting! And definitely crazier than most of those….

  19. Its Zoom Zoom like a Rocket not locket

  20. I am a bit disappointed because Gangnam Style isn’t “that” bizarre, and didn’t deserve first place in such a countdown. Wasn’t Epik High’s Wannabe way more bizarre than this? And Dirty Eyed girls! But I guess these videos aren’t as popular and weren’t voted for?

  21. huh…….. for some reason, this video doesn’t seem to be as ‘fun’ as i would have expected from the lovey EATYOURKIMCHI people… T_T… maybe its just me who thinks this.

    I actually got kind of bored by this,Something that’s almost NEVER happened, since I became a fan of EYK…

    Off to watch your other playlists’ now..

  22. I can’t believe you guys got to do an ISH list!! :DDD

  23. Um in “Yayaya”… P A R T Y = Party :P there’s just a pause before the Y lol!

  24. Psy Gangnam Style was played on Danish state radio yesterday! Denmark = tiny, cold country in Scandinavia with a total population 5.5 mio. That song is sooo awesome!

    • Wait…What?!? Seriøst!!! Hvorfor går jeg altid glip af de mest awesome momenter i dansk radio!!? Hvilken kanal??? Og jeg troede det var fedt at en af mine venner (som er kendt for han notorisk dårlige musik-smag) spillede Gangnam Style på skolens computer…

  25. I love when there is kpop in ish list, it make me happy^.^

  26. I thought DBSK did Balloons?

    • New to kpop? DB5K is TVXQ.. Dong Bang Shin Ki or DBSK is their Korean name and TVXQ is the abbreviation of their Chinese name Tong Vfang Xien Qi.. They’re also called THSK or ToHoShinKi which is their Japanese name.. 

  27. Ulala Session – Beautiful Night? ;-;

  28. DBSK’s Balloons will always be one of my favorites. What’s wrong with sexy guys being super cute?? After being in love with asian pop culture and music for so long, nothing surprises me or is weird anymore. lol

  29. Baloons is not bizarre!  u_ú

  30. My Korean ex used to call her once-a-month her “Girl’s day”. Now I can see where she got it from.

  31. Perhaps I’m too biased because I truly don’t understand being so weirded out by Balloons…. but perhaps not, because Ayy Girl or Tri-angle would be perfect xD

  32. funny hunny belongs on one of those DDR song tracks. 

  33. kawaii_candie

    interesting concept… 
    will be looking forward to more but this time around, i was a bit disappointed that you’ve already talked about ALL of these videos in the not so distant past so there was really nothing new and cooky for me to see this time… 

  34. totally threw me when you actually said Bilasa’s name correctly.

  35. BILLLLASSSSAAA #2!!!! so happy :D Thank you Simon&Martina

  36. Psy’s Gangnam Style was legitimately played on the news in NZ ^-^ (given it WAS on a segment about a starcraft competition)
    It was also played twice during our school’s leaver’s ball O.o

  37. Gangnam Style is really cool, and random, and I like it. But if you’re going for bizarre, as in wtf, you should see Fresh Boyz’s King Kong Shower (킹콩샤워). It’s really out there, but funny.

  38. Have you SEEN Dong Bang Shin Ki’s Tri-angle? It’s like live action Final Fantasy. This was the first video I saw of them.^^

  39. bigbangfosho

    WHOOOAAA….you guys are so famous ahahha

  40. FriedChickenOnew

    i don’t know what “joom joom your heart like a locket” means but i would like to find out ;) especially if i get to see them in person hehe

  41. OMG! No one told me this was in playlist mode!!

  42. Yayaya T-ARA is spelling the word Party P A R T   Y

  43. Totally saw Gangnam Style coming as #1, it’s just Psy winning throughout the whole video. 

  44. Haha you mentioned a flashmob, we just did one in Toronto the same day this came out! Coincidence?  I THINK NOT.

  45. Oh guise, I was having a pretty crap-tastic day, but this tooootally made things feel so much better. Thanks for all your videos!

  46. dammit… i need to watch gangnam style again…. sooo much epicness within 5 minutes! lol

  47. LMAO!!! you guys are awesome!!

  48. LOL I literally jaw-dropped seeing that TVXQ’s MV….xD And yes, totally, 200% agree that PSY’s Gangnam Style is all-time the best bizarre mv ever made.

  49. Well done Simon and Martina, well done :)

  50. Agree with all of these, but was waiting to see Thumbs Up by Crispy Crunch and gotta agree with others, I think Rokkugo would have fit nicely in here :D

  51. They need Dal Shabet on this list. Like their songs Pink Rocket and Bling Bling. XD

  52. PunkyPrincess92

    i knew Balloons would be included!!! and then when Martina suddenly popped onto the screen with the unicorn pj i was like WWAAHHHH TVXQ time!!!! (yes, yes i did just steal from u-know time)

  53. I cannot even describe how much happiness and laughter this brings me!!!

  54. I can’t describe how much I genuinely hate Buckley. He’s annoying as hell, and his videos about k-pop are horrid.

    So glad some ‘experts’ helped this time. Yay EYK!

  55. Gasp! B1A4′s Beautiful target is one of my all time favorite K-Pop songs!!!!!!! BILASA!!!!!

  56. WOOHOO! GO B1A4!!!!!! :D

  57. Epik High – Wannabe, Super Junior Trot – Rukkugo, SS501 – A Song Calling for You, DBSK – Tri-angle, Super Junior Happy – Pajama Party, 2PM – 10 Out of 10

  58. misspricilla

    I must admit when you said B-one-A-four I did not know who were you talking about. Never ever pronounce it like that again ……never T.T

  59. Yes!! Rokugo or pajama party or cooking cooking totally should have made the list!! Though I TOTALLY agree with balloons and beautiful target. I LIKE IT LIKE IT LIKE THIS!

  60. 7 is a really weird number, guys, make it the “Top 10 bizarre kpop videos” and give Jo Kwon’s “I’m da one” a place in this list. I know you want to ;)

  61. hey guys, have you seen this?? 
    GANGNAM STYLE FLASH MOB _ https://www.facebook.com/events/144865258984890/

    ps: I looooove unicorns!!!!

  62. Guise I don’t have the answer but can I still have a cookie? XD

  63. martina’s unicorn outfit made my whole day!! i need one of those righaway!!

    i’m happy to see some love for t-ara’s nonsensical yayayas and now that i see under the bizarre perspective, i kinda like girl’s day’s oh my god… a lot!! lol

  64. Um…Balloons is like, one of their earlier songs.  If you watched their debut MV (Hug), then you’d know what image they were kinda going for.  It’s so cute without being totally awkward (LMAO Jaejoong’s facial expressions).  I’m glad they made it to the video!

    HAHAHAHAH Girls Day–I like them a lot surprisingly.  Their videos are quite and cute, and fit with their name.  Hopefully they continue with this!


  65. Absolutely loved it…HOWEVER my mind just couldn’t comprehend the spinning numbers ok its a seven spinning…now it should be a backwards seven coming ba…WAIT ITS A NORMAL SEVEN AGAIN!!! 
    Ahahaha but seriously i loved this video so much

  66. balloons actually made me love dbsk even more :) oh no, plz do not remind me of ponpon wae ponpon again! lol

  67. OMG. I can’t believe you guys didn’t think about Dal Shabet’s “Pink Rocket” with that creepy gorilla. I think the MV is just plain weird. 

  68. i love all the videos but yeah rokkugo  missed out :P and super junior happy- cooking? cooking! is a little bizarre too XD

  69. Haha, love What the Buck, myISH, and EYK. 

    This is great!

    Now to watch!

  70. KISS AND TOUCH MEEE RUUUB MY BANANAS! I kinda missed this :D But I guess it’s not THAT bizarre

  71. XD oh my gosh! OPPA GANGNAM STYLE!!!! One of my oppas was singing this and doing the dance, at the time i had no freaking clue what he was doing! Thank you for clearing this up! XD

  72. I totally knew Psy had to be one of them! LOL

  73. Epik High ~ Wannabe / High Technology < These are quite bizarre and also fun! =ㅂ=
    Anyway I think you did a good list! ^^

  74. Omg…Martina said that Gangnam Style could be a potential flash mob song and in Toronto…there’s going to be a flash mob TODAY because of this song. What a coinkidink…!! I totally agree with everything u guise said about these funky songs!!! I hope u guise can make this a category every year. Like Weirdest songs of 2012.

  75. Ahhhh this video was awesome :D seriously i loved it
    My mind couldn’t comprehend the spinning numbers though…its a spinning 7, ok now it should be a backwa…OMG ITS A NORMAL 7 AGAIN!!! Sleep deprivation is messing with my mind :D

  76. Omg…Martina said that Gangnam Style could be a potential flash mob song and in Toronto…there’s going to be a flash mob TODAY because of this song. What a coinkidink…!! I totally agree with everything u guise said about these funky songs!!! I hope u guise can make this a category every year. Like Weirdest songs of 2012.

  77. Oh I watched all 7 videos~ ^^
    Actually my mum really love Funny Honey(so do I ^^), she isn’t into k-pop but she’s a fan of CNBlue(she likes ALL their songs ^^) and likes Orange Caramel too ^^
    eh B1A4′s song is stuck in my head again…*oh my beautiful target~♪*

  78. Guhhhhh Balloons and DBSK <333 ;………;

  79. That was really fast! It is hard to compile 7 videos into one, after all.
    But anyways.. I think T-ara should’ve been in seventh place, because OC looks waaaaaay more bizarre, lol.
    Good job you two~

    And I was thinking he whole time : Psy is gonna be first!!

  80. I, for one, am glad that you chose what you thought was the most bizarre, and not just blindly follow a poll strongly dominated by fangirls. Not that I disliked the videos at the top of the poll (I’d never seen Rokugo, and found it pretty funny) – but they were all….male? xD

    Just one (or two/three) more which I would also suggest watching:
    Epik High – Wannabe
    Epik High – Trot + High Technology
    Cheers!! ^^b

    •  The reason, why is someone who is a ‘girl’ because the song’s lyrics is about to turn things back, and say the words backwards, and the world is upside down… boy can turn into a girl. And the watermelons do clap (subak i baksu). There is grandpa and grandma (haraboji halmoni) So Heechul is dressed as a Girl, and addmit it he is way prettier than female idols <3 :D
      Along with Balloons these two are the most weird videos, in kpop of all the time!

      • …..I’ll just pretend that I understood that, and nod :D Yes!! I like watermelons too!! xD

        btw by saying ‘they were all male’, I was referring to the results in the poll that EYK posted a week ago – the top 10 were almost exclusively boy bands. EYK’s viewers are mainly female, so that was to be expected – but a bit uneven, imo. :)

    • Yes this is the videos!!! I like the dinosaur he is so cute. And I am still laughing over it. BTW which one is Tablo? And I was trying to spell familiar as their name not failure…I was still sleeping… believe me?

      • Tablo, from my memory is the one taking the photo right at the beginning of Wannabe – or the dude who was surrounded by all the ladies right at the end of Trot. All their MVs are really epik (cwidt) – I have very high expectations for their comeback next month (under YG)
        *dances around the room*

  81. Ehe every one I voted for was here.. Thank you for listening to me Simon and Martina, I knew you respected my opinion 

  82. Hahahaha, there should definitely be Rokkuko on the list, but I totally agree with the other 7 videos :D

  83. Well this made my day, especially seeing B1A4 make it second on the list…haha. :D

  84. I accidentally clicked one of Michael’s videos.

    Deffo not a fan… he’s exhausting.  I choose EYK over him anytime!

  85. Your comment about B1A4 is totally true >.< it was the song that my sisters finally convinced me to like Kpop with … but only because I couldn't get the damn thing out my head xD

  86. You collaborated with Michael?!?! friggin awesome :D

  87. No mirotic??? D: that’s what brings most people over to kpop in the first place! 

  88. Oh, I already knew about Orange Caramel, I like it, they are so cute! <3

  89. I think Balloons is the reason why Sm puts all their artists in oldly lit rooms now

    • Bwhahaha……! I never thought about that but it totally makes sense lol

      Oddly lit rooms versus animal costumes……oddly lit rooms takes it.
      I honestly cannot imagine Super Junior in animal costumes.

      • Why can’t you imagine Super Junior in animal costumes?
        They’ve been dressed as vegetables before

        • Keikari_Haiku

          True. But the vegetable costume was so unexpected almost avant gard so it was actuall pretty cool. Either way all animal costumes aside, Balloons will forever have it’s place among k pop royalty.

      • You really can’t imagine SuJu in animal costumes? When they’re worn vegetable outfits and done crazy dress ups basically every Super Show? o.o Wow. I think SuJu could easily pull off animal outfits.

  90. Ulala Session’s Beautiful Night!

  91. Rokkugo wasn’t in it ): ! I thought that video was pretty weird xD

  92. Really surprised “I’m Da One” isn’t on here. XD

  93. And people who know nothing about kpop brain’s just exploded from all the new information. 

  94. Surprised you didn’t include G.Na’s 2HOT……….I love her but that video…….the half-naked firemen……I just….what?….huh?……was that just me?

  95. MARTINA I LOVE YOUR UNICORN OUTFIT! I was dying of laughter when you randomly appeared like that! You should wear it more often!

  96. Gangman Style is epic!

  97. Balloon was actually a remake of an older song….still doesn’t explain the costumes though…..

  98. D: Rokkugo missed out :(

  99. when i saw the title..i know PSY gangnam style is number 1! xD

  100. I want more of these kind of video’s from you guys! these personal favorites type :D

  101. Balloons… i crei

  102. When I saw the title, I just knew Gangnam Style would be number one haha. I couldn’t agree more, that song is just awesome!

  103. OMG! That unicorn thingy-outfit is sooo cute!

  104. balloons is actually one of favorite between tvxq’s fans because it’s cute and funny to watch keke
