Lee Hi “It’s Over” – Kpop Music Mondays

DUH LEE DUH LEE EE EE EE! This week we’re talking about Lee Hi’s “It’s Over” for Kpop Music Monday. It’s awesome! It’s fun! If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out here, and then sing it in your heads incessantly afterwards

Isn’t this video so odd? It’s a really fun concept. A big grumpy jerky teddy bear. Hilarious. Especially when he Rick-James-to-Charlie-Murphy’s all over the shopping cart. The whole video just looked like loads of fun, and it was fun to watch as well. Match that with the super catch chorus and it’s clear why this video would get so many views so fast.

We also like that the cute innocence of this video is actually cute and innocent, and not lolita-esque, like “I’m cute and innocent oppa but I’m so sexy!” Lee Hi is just cute, and – though I know she’s in high school – I swear, she looks like, 9 years old TOPS in this video. See, what struck us about Kpop a while ago is that it seems so much more innocent than Western Pop music, and that’s what’s part of it’s appeal to us and to a lot of other people, but it seems to be losing that more and more lately. This video, though, harkens back to that sweetness, you know?

One theory we tossed around back and forth when we were scripting for Music Monday, but ultimately scrapped, is that Lee Hi might become Korea’s new sweetheart, now that IU seems to have lost that title, from what we read in the news somewhere a while ago after that whole IUnhyuk thingy. We’re not fully convinced that this is the case, but we’re not fully not-convinced, either. We just abandoned it when we tried to squeeze in an Eunhyuk joke in there, and realized we’d be murdered. Screw that! We’re dedicated to corny jokes, but not that dedicated!

Otherwise, this is the first video that we’ve talked about on our KpopCharts that wasn’t in first place since we announced the Personal-Choice-Among-Top-3 rule. You guise vote for the top 3, we pick one and make our video on that. This rule is, amongst other things, to try to prevent the vast amount of boybands out there from ruling our Kpop Music Mondays, like they did in 2012. Sure, it sucks that we didn’t review U-Kiss this time, but hopefully we’ll review them next week! Uggh. Tumblr ban for the next week!

Anyhow, if you’re a fan of this song like we are (and you definitely must be. This song RAWKS!) pick it up on either iTunes or YesAsia. Do it! And, we were rather on point this week for Music Monday, so we don’t have as many bloopers as usual, but if you’re addicted to watching us mess up, here’s Martina making out with our giant Unicorn a bit too much…

  2. I was hoping for U-KISS or Teen Top but Martina making out with the stuffed animal sure was entertaining lololol.

  3. man…i totally forgot it was Monday!!
    surprised you guys didn’t call it pedobear!!!
    ahahahahahahahahhaha eeewwww Martina and the unicorn!!!! was NOT expecting that!!!
    poor bear!! trying to help Lee Hi!!! you go bear!! i support you!!
    again i didn’t really like this song…..i guess i just don’t like this style of music!! but of course she has a totally AMAZING voice!!

    ahahaha you guys should watch some more old Suju videos!!! some of them are just so funny!!!
    honestly i’d love it if they did some stupidly hilarious mv’s like that these days!!
    i’ll definitely have to go with Super Junior!!

  4. Wow. I really didn’t expect the top 3 rule to happen, but leehi is the best candidate for it I guess. I’m glad to see her chosen :D I love her to bits!
    I find the bear abuses both physically and mentally but you know how manipulative/unpredictable abusers are and how sweet they can be especially before or in the beginning of the relationship. I would like to dedicate this song to both rihanna and chris brown.
    And I would like gummy to do a cover with a much realistic and twisted version. She’ll have to do since tablo won’t be out of his happy mode anytime soon.
    Anyway. Love you guys! Muah! ♥♥

  7. oh godd, I remember the first time I saw cooking cooking… the toilet scene… just why? but I still think that super junior’s rokkugo is the wierdest one.

      • well I promise to defend you!!!

        7 years ago
      • Well I love U Kiss but I like the fact that you reviewed a song that you wanted to talk about, and it will allow you to have more time to think about things to say in the “Standing Still” review. We’ll definitaly vote for U Kiss, and don’t worry, we still love you quys!

        7 years ago
        • Yeah… I’d like to know more for the song than video(not that I don’t like it). I actually wouldn’t mind if it came into dicussion on kpopcharts update… but there are some new kissmes… that won’t agree with me I guess…

    • Glad to see that you stood up for your own opinion. After all it’s you who does all the work in the videos, so you should decide what the videos are about.

  15. Yay Lee Hi!!! I’m so glad she got reviewed this week. Ukiss can definitely stay in the top until next week (and I will certainly be voting for them), but it was doubtful that Lee Hi would be able to and I was kinda sad that she might not get reviewed. Yay new KMM system!

  16. Withholding my Kissme fangirl butthurt to appreciate the Lee Hi review. I enjoyed the song a lot and I’m glad she’s getting attention :) Plus, I have no doubt that U-Kiss can stay at the top for another week ^_^ Thank you for the review!

  17. Aaaaaaaahhhhh I loved this week’s review!!! ;D

    But before all else I would like to say the tumblr rage might not be as bad as we think – this is KISSMES we’re talking about after all :)

    Now for some spazzing: OMIGAWWWWWWDDDD I AM SOOOOOO HAPPY IT WAS SOOO WORTH STAYING UP TILL 4AM FOR THISSSSS!!! I LOVE LEE HI SO MUCH SHE’S SO CUTE AND TALENTED AND THE VIDEO IS LIKE MY FABOURITE EVAAAARRRR AND I WANT THAT BEAR SOOOOO MUCH AND HER VOICE IS AMAZING AND THE REVIEW WAS LIKE FULLY POSITIVE AND AAAAAAHHHHH

    lol but seriously, this just shows what a difference it makes when you get to talk about something you really like!!i was nodding the whole time haha
    – i loved the lame HIlarious joke :p
    -lol the fight against diabetes!!! XD it all makes sense now – especially since I know how hard it is to change a patient’s dietary habits ^^;
    Very wise of you to leave out the IU thing, btw. And I would agree that I much prefer musicians who are relatable to myself (and have beards :p)

    Ok bedtime; thanks again for the great KMM, I’ll watch it again tomorrow ^^b

    PS. Did you know Tablo wrote the lyrics? Mwahahaha xD

    • Really? I read he wrote Special and Turn it Up, I didn’t know about It’s Over o_O

      7 years ago
    • Wait wasn’t it master wu who wrote the lyrics? It even sounded similar to 1234
      **yesh its master wu :p tablo wrote the intro and special. Don’t know the other 2

      7 years ago
      • Oh ok :$

        I knew Tablo wrote 3 songs but I couldn’t remember which ones. And then he was tweeting about It’s Over (something about how not all breakups are painful?) – which is probably what gave me that impression ^^;;

    • “But before all else I would like to say the tumblr rage might not be as
      bad as we think – this is KISSMES we’re talking about after all :)”

      LOL. Yeah, I would say that most kissmes have been fans of them for too long to get upset over a KMM being delayed. Disappointed yeah, but not extremely upset. We’ve been through too much else, this isn’t a big deal in comparison. Most of what I’ve been reading on tumblr lately is a mass amount of hate being showed towards the Korean music shows for their poor treatment on their comeback week, but I’ve hardly read any raging/hatred towards eyk, other than the normal blogs that say bad things no matter who they choose or what they do. (Which I don’t even see anymore because I ignored them.)

      7 years ago
    • ooooooooooooohhh so he was tweeting about Special. I saw his tweet, and I assumed it was about It’s Over, since it’s also a breakup song :/

  20. i so love 1,2,3,4.. but it’s over i don’t have that BOOM kind of feel that i had with her first song.. the mv is funny her kind of sound is really new for the kpop world and is awesome… i hope to see u-kiss reviewed in KMM next week

    WAIT where is spudgy!? O.O!!! / and i will go with cooking cooking that song is so freaking funny..

  21. As much as I wanted UKISS reviewed this week, I’m actually really proud of you guys for picking Lee Hi. I mean, this is the whole reason you made it so you could chose from the top three. It’d be pointless if you always chose the number one spot on the charts because you were afraid of upsetting fans. Fighting!

  22. “How do you even start a relationship with a stuffed toy?”

    I’m still wondering why Tiffany from SNSD married that bear in that video a few years back…

  23. I would like it if before the Music Monday video was reviewed there was an announcement of the top 5 videos counting down to number 1. Because making it to number 1 is an honor in and of itself.

    7 years ago
    • I’d like that, too. Plus, even those that can’t get reviewed cause they couldn’t quite hang on ~coughnu’estcough~ would get SOME type of recognition.

  25. Aw. That means Teen Top has no chance. :(

  26. You want to know what i am happy you guys’ picked Lee Hi. Because You have reviewed ever ukiss mv and as much as love U-kiss i am happy you picked something else. Thought I’ll never be fully happy until Nu’est gets reviewed. you are now holding up to the fact of a 3.9 or of 5. Sorry I am so Nu’est Biased it’s not even funny.

    7 years ago
  27. i dont know if anyone noticed or if anyone already said this but the part where the bear and Lee Hi look at each other before the bear throws her shopping cart is a parody of this video of a person in a panda suit doing the same thing. its totally hilarious you guys should watch it.

  28. I really liked the review of “It’s Over” – well done.

    I vote for Super Junior’s “Cooking”, that was the first time I have ever seen it but it was really fun and funny too. I can’t believe Shin Dong in it though, why don’t they let him do that kind of thing more often? He totally rocks! Usually he’s shafted to the back row or even out of the shot in a lot of the MVs but his voice changes (from “Cooking”), fun comedy acting, and dancing are the best, they would totally help liven up what’s becoming a bit of a SJ machine.

  29. honestly i loved both U-Kiss AND Lee Hi’s songs and videos and if it takes picking one of the top three to make ya’ll happy, go for it. this was the funniest music Monday ya’ll have made in a few months :) so it seems to be a good combination.
    5 stars from me ^_^

  30. OKAY, I have heard the Cooking Cooking song before during the live performances of them dressed like vegetables. I did not realize that it was a song they had a MV for! XD You can’t unsee that video, it gets my vote!

  31. I vote for Super junior!

    btw, when is that WANK from last thursday coming out?

    7 years ago
  32. okay you guyz, I’ll have to vote for Lee Hi, because Super Juniors Cooking Cooking just … whoa. Maybe if it was for a kitchen electronic commercial I would let it slide but … I wonder how they will react if someone starts playing the song and they are told to dance to it? Oh yeah … do you guys mind LEDApple Let the Wind Blow… or Taeyang I’ll be There, plz?

  33. I loved this KMM! Not only because you guys are hilarious and always so friggin cute, but also because you always teach me more about the Korean culture/traditions and so on. I am such a huge fan of Eat Your Kimchi, and I want you guys to always have as much freedom as possible to do whatever you think is the best. Haters will hate alone, but the rest of us love you guys because you are genuine and real. Keep fighting! (And I’ll dream of bear nipples tonight)

  34. Martina making out with a stuffed unicorn was deeply disturbing.

    7 years ago
    • Yes, I was almost wondering if it would go even more disturbing if she magically transformed (into wearing her own unicorn costume) – LOL! Perhaps they don’t have any other huge stuffies at the EYK studio, but that it was a unicorn and Martina made it perfect (partially because it WAS disturbing). The bloopers scene made me laugh so hard – I feel for you Martina, I think Simon was wondering just how far you would go XD

      Cyber_3 – Martina is just sooooooo cuuuuuute in her unicorn costume

    Sooo glad you reviewed this song. And thank you for explaining the bear’s point of view haha.

  38. I also had never heard of or seen the “Cooking Cooking” MV so I looked up. This was definitely one of Super Junior’s best concepts. They SO should make more music videos like this!

    7 years ago
  39. Awesome KMM guys! I laughed so hard at the unicorn skit! You guys always come up with the most creative theories and skits for music mondays! I’m glad you reviewed Lee Hi because I really wanted to know what you guys thought of the song/mv. EYK fighting!

  40. Yay Lee Hi review! Thanks for reviewing it. (^▽^)
    As much as I love UKISS’ new song/album, I love this song and Lee Hi’s album (I can’t wait for the second part!)
    Her music video is so adorable until you consider that there is probable some sweaty guy in the Teddy Bear outfit
    Interesting take on the bear, I never considered Lee Hi to be dating the bear… to me it was her childhood toy and eventually you grow out of it and let it go
