Hi guise! And welcome to the new comment system on Eatyourkimchi! We hope you like it. Let us know what you think in our new comments below! But first, we’re gonna talk a bit more about Infinite’s “Last Romeo” for this week’s Kpop Music Monday! Check out the video if you haven’t seen it yet:

Ok, so we adapted a symbolic approach to watching this video, and we saw it all as representing trapped gas. Because that’s how we roll. Because, otherwise, we would have been too frustrated with this video. The whole reaching through the bookshelves scene made us scream in frustration. WALK AROUND THE DAMN SHELF! The girl does it a few seconds later! Don’t just fall to the ground and cry like a…nevermind. Or push the shelf over! Hot damn what’s wrong with you boi?!

And then, at the end of the video, when he’s in the room and the earthquake hits, instead of him hiding under a desk, he gets a really bad headache and starts yelling. Books explode into the room. He still yells. Books explode very slowly. He yells very slowly. Yells until the world dissolves and he’s just goddamned floating on a steam cloud and flailing around. He dies, still floating on the cloud. What the hell is this crap? Must be farts. That’s the only answer I’ll accept.

Sad thing we cut out from this video because of a fake fire: we had something along the lines of “Why did Infinite get such a low budget movie? Weren’t they just bought out by SM? Oh…wait.” Ha! No KMM is complete without a jab at SM :D

And another thing: please, more lip rubbing. The 10 seconds spent on rubbing your lip while singing wasn’t ridiculous enough. Your hand should be pulling on your lip for the entirety of the video. More lip rub = more successful video. Ok snark aside, whoa, that was pretty ridiculous.

For this week’s poll, let us know what blue moody clocky video you preferred:

So yeah! That’s it for this week’s Kpop Music Monday. We’ve got a few bloopers, but not as many as we would normally, because we couldn’t film the skits we had planned. Check em out if you’d like to see us be a bit more silly:

  1. serioulsy, Martina… can you just stop making my stomach ache by laughing? WHO WRITES THESE OUT TO YOU GUYS?

  2. I couldn’t agree with you more.
    Like you said the sound is very Infinite, there is no way to confuse it with another kpop song.
    I think for the video at the beginning they may had a good idea but then! well…who knows, not enoguh budget and probably who ever did this video ended up being lazy. The intro is lame and has no sense and well at the beginning I liked when I saw the bookshelves but it had no sense…I though maybe they leave messages inside the books and that how they communicate or something like that, but they killed my illusions! and just like you when they were trying to reach each other, I was mentally saying walk around the bookshelf!! So I definitely agree with you guys on what you think about the video.
    Now what I loved the most and was completely epic, is the fart joke! At first I was eating when started to watch the video and guess what? I had to stop eating and pausing the video, because trying to breath while I was still laughing wasn’t working. So had to replay the video, and guess what? I laughed so hard that my tummy hurt and this time I had no problem ;)
    Anyhow great Music Monday! it made my day, after a long day of class. I really hope you can do a VIXX one because I can’t wait to hear what you come up with! I just love you music reviews and in somehow how you ruin the impression of the song (in a good way) (eg. EXO’s What is Love, I always start laughing when I hear it,because there is no way I can forget the I lost my pants…and no one understands me why I laugh!) So I must ask you, just keep ruining the songs with your amazing and epic music reviews!

  6. Really liking the comments section, looks so much nicer! With the old one I could never get it to work on chrome and had to resort to using firefox to see the comments :( So I’m really happy it’s all working properly!! Also I just got back from watch X-men so I can finally watch the review Simon made LOL

  7. In regards to the new comment sections, while very nice and I like it, the old one (with all it’s problems) put the most liked comments at the top which I enjoyed. Now I think it’s just in time post order? Meh, no biggy~~~

    Anyhoo! Great music monday (love the hair Martina~) and this is actually the first time I heard the song; I’m so behind on my kpop. But I enjoyed it! I’m not a huge infinite fan, I’m a bigger hip hop/rock fan than this cheezy 80s style music but it’s good. I’ve really liked Infinite since “Nothing’s Over”
    but that lip rubbing was a bit excessive.

    Also, I noticed while watching it.. .. it wasn’t actually a blue screen. It looks like that was a real set that they built lol.

  8. I know you guys said that you weren’t able to do any of the skits coz of the faulty fire alarm but this KMM was not lacking in the slightest :D awesome job and keep up the good work!

    Wheeeeeeeeeeeee I can comment I can comment lookie at meeeeee guuuuyysss I CAN COMMMMEEEENNNTTT!!! xD

    Great KMM!! Aaah this is the kind of KMM that I love; where you explain Kpop MVs to me!! Like UKiss’ 0330, B1A4’s umm that MV where the girl killed them with bread, and yeah! That kinda thing!!
    Kpop MVs are soooo damn confusing, I just cannot show how much I appreciate when you make it so clear like this!! The poor farting Romeo!! I feel his pain. I really do. >_<

    My advice is to turn on the kitchen fan (that sucks out steam), fart near there first, and then go see Juliet once his bowels are gas-less. That, and stop eating all those beans?

  10. Hahaha! Oh fart jokes, you never fail to make me laugh. I still remember Face Arousal Raunchy Thrusting and I still chuckle whenever I think about it.

  11. For the first time I think you said something that’s super wrong…. CNBlue songs have nothing in common with FTIsland songs… CNBlue song are pretty much with the same feel and sound, which is completely different from FTIsland songs that are more diverse in my opinion…
    Infinite ahhh I love them but I haven’t liked a song of theirs in a looong time…

  13. I’m not sure if I’m the only person having this issue, but the new comment system seems to have messed up the k-pop charts. When I click on a video to comment on it, the “leave a reply” box is covering the loading bar and options in the lower right corner of the video. It also appears that the video skips down below where it should be on both it’s own page and in the main list. I can’t see or control any videos on the main list of the k-pop chart. Usually it cascades and enlarges the list to view but now it doesn’t. I’m sure you guys will figure it out eventually. Hopefully you’ve already been alerted to this issue. I’m using Internet Explorer by the way in case it’s reliant on a person’s browser. One final thing I noticed while typing this post is that the “Post Comment” button overlaps the text box in the lower right corner and blocks you from seeing what you are typing while your cursor is in that spot. Overall I like the look of the new system but it’s got a long way to go to get all of the bugs out.

  14. “And thus with a fart, I…die!” Love it! Hey! What a spiffy new looking comment section! Cool beans!

  15. My problem with this MV is that i didnt feel like the chorus was “chorusy” enough. Ifind myself rememebring the first 30secs of the song more than the chorus (i havent listened to this song much mindyou). I really wanted a “sing-a-long” feel, like with The Chaser, but alas, it cant be so :’) the mv wasnt anything new, but i loved the exploding books scene ^^

  17. Oh god, I had to bite my tongue to keep myself from laughing out loud (it’s pretty late here). The farts THE FARTS, somehow, that farty plot makes 1000% sense.

    was that an Assassin’s Creed reference at the end? I haven’t played that game in a looong time so I’m not really sure… *flashback to MBLAQ’s Smoky Girl*… I don’t know who said it better. Spudgy or Fangurrila XD

  18. Hey guise just a few comments about the comments…. Haha well first of all I don’t know if this is just happening with me or if it’s with everyone, but there is no visible “reply” button. It was out of sheer luck that my cursor hovered over the bottom right corner and the little text box popped up. So maybe you could put in a visible one to avoid confusion? And also not a comment but a question. Will we still be notified when someone reply’s to our comments? Other than that looks good :) And I am so happy to be able to comment again after like a freaking month of EYK comment withdrawal!!

    • Heya!

      Yeah, it’s a hover option for the reply button. We’ll try making it stand out a bit more. And I’ve just enabled the notification setting. It’s not that pretty yet, but we’ll add more style to it soon :D

  21. Pssst. .. instead of a like and dislike vote on the comments, how about an agree/disagree vote? :o seems better than likes and dislikes. Just throwing it out there, now that I can FINALLY comment again!

  22. I almost peed myself watching this week. Omg fart jokes are too funny, and I’m a grown woman (probably just easily amused). Kinda wish we could have seen your skits (they’re always hilarious) but I guess the flashback to old eyk will have to suffice. I’d rather have you guys safe and it be a false alarm than a real fire and you thought it was a fluke.

    PS: LOVE the new comment system! Imma go find me a display pic~

  23. Totally not a coincidence that I let out 2 huge rotten eggers just as the KMM was ending.

  24. I seriously LOVED the song. Something about Infinite’s music is just so bad 80s that it’s amazing. Not bad meaning bad but bad meaning good, ya know?

    • Also, love the new commenting system. I don’t know about everyone else, but for me I can only see the reply button on Internet Explorer, not on Chrome. And I saw someone talking about voting comments up/down, but I don’t see that function anywhere? Just thought I’d provide some (hopefully) useful feedback. :)

      5 years ago
      • Thank you for the feedback :D We’re working on implementing new features as fast as we can. We just needed to get something in place of Disqus immediately, since it was blocking so many users.

        5 years ago
        • Thanks for the reply! This must be a little bit of a crazy time for you guys haha. (Btw I also love how the comments look. So pretty! Keep up the good work! ^^)

          5 years ago
  25. I actually like, this new commenting system! It seems to match the page better than the disqus platform. Design wise leaps and bounds, Chutes and Ladders better! Hmm… Though I wonder, will it also update you via email when someone replies to your comment?

    5 years ago
    • Ok! I just added the subscription option. It’s not as styled as the other options, but it’s there! I’ll work on making it pretty ASAP :D

      • Am I too selfish to ask for a like button next? I feel the need to agree to some comments but replying “I agree” or “I like your comment” will sound probably weird to me after a while. BTW I like this commenting system.

        5 years ago
        • I agree

          I like yer comment

          5 years ago
        • No, not too selfish at all :D We’re looking into how we can give people the option to sort comment displays, as well as finding a way to rank comments and use that info for sorting, too! Hopefully we’ll find a way soon :D

          5 years ago
        • Oops, I pressed enter before I could fix the comment. I would feel a bit awkward if you replied to me but please do anyway.

  26. OMG! How many fart jokes could that video still unleash ! Well it was awesome..Spudgies shakespeare moment eas hillarious and trying not to go through the toilet paper wall …Spudgy you are a smart dog! Simon’s meltdown moment also was funny

  27. ‘Believe in my dreams’… ooh, yes Meemers Oppa, I will. I most definitely will. Because those dreams are of me and you, staring longingly into each others eyes over a bowl of tuna, wearing couples collars with our initials engraved on the tags, going for crazy sprints around the house at 3am to the delight of our humans, and me watching you as you flex your muscles against the scratching post, stretching higher and higher…

    Believe? Indeed.

  28. wow, you ARE using the clapper and sorry that i sent you a black one instead because i couldnt find a white clapper. i noticed that its almost impossible to read the words if you write on the clapper. but hey its the digital age, most people dont write on the clappers anymore, they just use it to clap. MUAHAHAHA.

    and 1 suggestion, you should change the quote on meemer’s tshirt to “Meelieve in my dreams.” that is all :P

    5 years ago
    • Ha! Great suggestion. And, yes, we’re just using the clapper to clap. It makes a lot cleaner clap than our hands, and it makes us feel professional, so we’re using it :D

  29. I’m loving the live band feel of the song, it really makes it stand out from other kpop songs at the moment and thank goodness there’s no random dubstep breakdown thrown in. :)

  30. Okay, so Last Romeo was a bit… Well, uh… Disjointed? Either way, nice job with this video! CLACKER BLACKER! But I honestly was hoping Vixx was going to be next… Can they be next? ETERNITY!!

  31. Hahaha my goodness that was the best Romeo story ever! Holy fartsizzles! Haha and I loved the Taken quote from spudgy.. So good! Keep up the great work guys! I’ve been missing your kpop music Mondays when you just take the Mickey out of silly things in the video and it doesn’t mean you hate the group.

  34. Newbie here. On quite shallow level, i love the black lace jackets. The guys look and sing very fine. Overall, dramatic, distracting, silly. Least favorite is syncronized crotch grabs. Who really likes that?
    I guess i better look up past stuff. Thanks for bringing them forward.

    5 years ago
  35. XD I’m sorry I can’t get passed the blooper video I almost fell off my chair laughing. But besides that I’m not sure how I like Infinite’s Last Romeo it kind of was all over the place to me. Not a fan of the crotch grabbing, I mean come on guys do that in public here and its just disgusting to me. I don’t like it at all it just seems degrading themselves but I don’t know anything so yeah. But besides that I’m not really into the whole Romeo and Juliette romance thing it just is to sad of a romantic tragedy to me.

  36. T-T wants the meemers shirt. also, epic fart joke, I applaud you, and also, I’m very curious now what you think of VIXX’s new song. I like it but I don’t love it. I prefer the other 2 songs on their album actually. Still, it’s a good song, with a clock! and some nice dance moves. Chaos will always be my fav VIXX song though.
