Block B – Nillili Mambo: Kpop Music Mondays

October 23, 2012


Share Post

Woohoo! We’re finally back to doing Music Mondays after our trip to Mexico and California, and the first Music Monday when we’re back is…BLOCK B! If you haven’t seen the awesomeness of Nillili Mambo, check it out here:

Ok, for starters: sorry about wearing sunglasses for the video. I know it’s weird and alienating, but we had no choice. Our eyes have gotten a lot worse. The pink eye has spread to our corneas and we’re extremely light sensitive and half blind now. So, filming in front of the lights was realllllly difficult. Editing the video as well was crazy difficult. So, please forgive us if we’re not on our A game this week for editing. Also, we’re tying this blog post with our eyes closed, so forgiveness, please, if we’ve got lots of spelling errors here. We’ll be back to normal soon!

Back to the video itself, there were so many more things we wanted to do but simply couldn’t: that whole make-out scene was hilarious! For starters, they’re so clearly far apart that you could have put a beach ball between their mouths. Ha! And, more importantly, pause at the 3:02 mark and go forward frame by frame, right when Zico interrupts their fake make out session. THE GIRL IS HOWLING WITH LAUGHTER! Seriously: how demasculinating! “AYY GURL WE GON MAKE OUT NOW!” and she laughs in his face. HA! There was great potential there for another skit.

Also, maybe this isn’t skit worthy, but pause at the 2:05 mark. What is it that PO throws out of the window? It’s not a gun. It’s too small for that. It’s small and white. I have no clue what it is. My guess is it’s a leftover sandwich. Anyone got any other ideas?

Ah! This song and video was just so much fun, and we were really happy to review them. Awesome! Also, we’re really lucky that Block B’s management, Brand New Stardom, reached out to us to do an interview with Block B. Woot! We’ve been talking about it back and forth with them for a while, and OOOOH we were holding back on announcing it for so long! The timing was a bit difficult for us, since we were in California at the time that we originally wanted to do the interview, but we’re still super stoked that our schedules finally matched up!

So, we’re gonna be asking Block B a bunch of your questions, SO START ASKING! Leave your questions in the comment section below, along with your name and location, of course, and we’ll do our best to ask as many questions as possible. Make sure to thumb up any good questions if you see them, as well. Woot! This Wednesday we’ll be meeting Block B, and we’ll be posting the video as soon as possible afterwards, once we edit it all, sub it in English, and get approvable to publish it. We’re hoping it’ll be up by Sunday, fingers crossed!

Oh, and – if I were you – I’d make sure to subscribe to us on YouTube, follow us on Twitter, and Like us on Facebook. We might get some good stuff from this interview and might give it out to you awesome Nasties – you awesome subscribing, following, and liking Nasties, that is :D

Anyhow, if you like the song as much as we do (and you should, because it ROCKS!) make sure to pick it up on YesAsia and iTunes. And lastly, of course, since we’re sooooo off our game today, we have more bloopers than usual. Martina was especially off today, and was making up words that don’t even exist. Ha!

  2. OH SNAP! The beginning bit of the song is from a video of two blind women playing street songs in Vietnam. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBi6hBrpgqQ I was listening to it a bit ago and then saw this music video and nearly flew out of my pants. This is the first time I’ve heard a Block B song so whoAAaaA

  4. T.T darnit… I knew about this but didn’t think of a question til now… much too late… so in case you guys ever get to hang out with block b again here it is:

    to Zico and/or Kyung– please rap freestyle using the following words:
    -Simon and Martina
    -Oooh you so nasty
    -AYEE gurl
    -*applies pseudorandom algorithm to SAT vocab list* redolent, meaning: suggestive or reminiscent of something / with a particular scent or odor
    -Crustulum (don’t have to… just for personal pleasure since it’s my nickname hehe means cookie in latin :D)

    From: Crustulum, Pennsylvania USA

    I wonder if you guys asked them to freestyle on your own (or if someone else asked a similar question) Can’t wait to see the interview! Love you guys!

  5. OMG! This song is insanely stuck in my head! I guess it doesn’t help that I’ve listened to it about 20 times today. It’s just so fun! And seriously guys…were they say Okey Dokey I keep hearing Honkey Donkey and nothing can make me hear it otherwise.

  10. I’m Anna from Stockholm, Sweden and I wonder…: Do any of the members have any hidden, weird talents that they could show? And tell me anything you know, or think you know about Sweden, that is to say, what is the first thing you think about when people say the country’s name? ^^ Actually just started listening to your songs, and I can’t say I’m disappointed! Oooh! And I vote for Block B!ヽ(・∇・)ノ

  11. I am probably too late… But it’s always worth the try~ :’)

    1. For how long were you all trainees before your debut?
    2. Do you have plans for an overseas concert any soon?
    3. How much do you think you have changed/improved since your debut?

  12. I really like the concept of the new mv too :) i especially like the the part when Ukwon goes to shoot the gangsters, only to find out there’s no bullets :O My questions are (to the group as a whole):
    “What is you favourite part of the MV/ what part was most fun to create?”
    “Where was the video made (location of set)?”
    Naomii, Australia :D

  15. Im curious about a question for Zico. Obviously he writes his own raps, but which song that he’s written is his personal favourite? it doesn’t have to be musically wise, but could also be the one he has the most emotional attachment to?

    8 years ago
  16. these are my questions :
    1) as an idol, do you find your privacy constantly getting violated?
    2) how many times a week do you contact your family and relatives?
    3) were your parents against all thoughts of you becoming famous and being idols?
    4) how do you find the music industry to be like?
    5) was it hard for you to produce songs? why?
    6) if every BBC in the world are in front of you right now, what would you say to them?

    lots of love, Becky from Malaysia.

    peace out BBCs~^^
    thanks in advance, eatyourkimchi crew^^

    My question is for Zico, I’m curious to know where Zico gets his hairstyles? Is it something he wanted input on or was it decided by the company and stylists of the band?

  22. I choose the Block B gang over T-ara. While I enjoyed T-ara’s mv’s, I prefer the lightheartedness and comedy of the Block B mv. :)

  23. 1) Dead or alive: Who is the artist that you would most like to work with?
    2) Besides Zico, are the other members interested in releasing mixtapes or writing / composing / producing?
    3) Zico, when is your mixtape going to be released?!
    4) Kyung & Zico, when writing lyrics are you ever worried about having to censor yourself? Do you think some things are better left unsaid or do you always try to say what you feel?
