Lee Hi “Rose” – Kpop Music Mondays

April 2, 2013

We’re talking about Lee Hi’s “Rose” for this week’s Kpop Music Monday. If you haven’t heard this yet, here it is. Why have you not heard this yet?!

You know, I think we sometimes have difficulty expressing what we want to say properly in our videos. We get passionate about an idea, talk about it to great length, and then realize that we might have not spent an even distribution of time on different points, and thus might give off the appearance of imbalance.

At the beginning of our video, we talked about how much we like the song, and about how much we’ve been listening to it, and how everyone we know is listening to it. It’s a great song, but we didn’t emphasize that enough. I’m thinking people might get the feeling that we’re complaining, when really we’re just trying to say that it’s a great song, but Lee Hi is better than the song itself. It’s not a reason to not like the song at all. We’ll still listen to it a lot. We just think that she’s so good she should be getting Skyfall-esque songs that blow you away. She’s too damn good to be timid, you know? Give us the boomshakalaka she deserves!

Also, we didn’t mention this in the video, but we do realize she is still quite young and still in training. So she very well may not be ready for the huge boomshakalaka songs that we want her to sing, but we know she’ll get there over time, and we’re super happy to watch her grow. Till then, YG, we’ll still love her songs!

Regarding the video, it really was beautiful to watch. Not only were the sets whimsical, the outfits and simple innocent rose look really matched Lee Hi and her age. It wasn’t our all time favourite video evar, but it was certainly better than some of the cliche music videos we saw over 2012. I think a video like this shows that you can work on a set (and in a box) and still create an atmosphere that doesn’t remind the viewer they actually are on a set. Maybe it’s because we see SOOOO many kpop music videos that we feel like if one director can do it right, why can’t others? And yes, we know that not all videos are suited to a serious video like this, but we’re just hoping to see a change in the settings and styles of kpop videos in 2013. As a rookie, we think that Lee Hi has already raised the standards for both rookie and mature groups alike.

Anyhow, hopefully you like the song as much as we do, make sure you pick it up either on iTunes or YesAsia. It’s good music! And, as always, we’ve got bloopers. There aren’t a lot today, but Martina’s over caffeination made up for it.

  1. YG family biased…

    • this is kind of true but thinking about the fact that many viewers of Simon and Martina are YG biased so sure they’ll make many music mondays about yg artists. I’m sad too but we can’t help it can we?

      7 years ago
      • Then, they should make yg music mondays and not “kpop music monday”. It’s clear that if they plan to do something related to kpop music (or other music genre), they won’t please everyone, especially when they have their own preferences. But at least, try not to be so biased. But yeah, it’s their show and at the end of the day they get what they want: people watching them.

        I’m not a TripleS, and to be honest, I don’t even know which videos were competing, I’m just saying what I’ve seen in their reviews and I think the choice of this video over the others is just a prove that what I think is not wrong.

        I like them because I like Simon and Martina as a couple and I like how they interact with each other and talk about music in a funny way. But yeah, their music taste differs from mine.

      • I think one of the main reasons for the change in the winner system is big bang (and GD) and their continues victories every week, so even if they like YG artists, i don’t think they are biased towards them

        7 years ago
        • I know. But now they start to review Lee Hi every time she’s in the top 3 which is basically the same. I know they don’t want it to be only boy bands but I think they made it clear a few times that most of the artist they like a lot are under yg. We can’t blame them for their decision we can only say that we are sad.

      • Er… actually if there are going for views they would choose the highest votes = biggest fanclubs = highest views = most money generated. Thats common sense

        7 years ago
        • I think they always please the majority of fan clubs….it’s just that they didn’t this time (and probably the other time they reviewed Lee hi “it’s over).but for the most part they review mv’s that people want….. Of course they take into consideration their audience. They even do fanmail at most convenient time for the nasties….

          7 years ago
        • Not exactly. EYK doesn’t represent all of YT.
          There are tons of videos w/ tons of views but don’t do very much of anything on here.

          I’m pretty sure it’s a majority of teenage girls here that represent EYK’s fanbase.

  3. Its a shame that sooo many comments are about how people are disappointed in the choice. When you spend so much time working on something and you get back all this negative feedback, how are you supposed to feel? Respect the fact that they work so hard to bring this to us every week and get over it people!

    7 years ago
    • I agree that if people were rude or excessively angry, then that’s definitely over the line. However, I see nothing wrong with expressing disappointment in a polite way.

      I know Simon and Martina are putting in so much work, and I really respect them for it. I love what they put out for us. But they are a business. Even if they don’t earn anything from KMM (I don’t think so, at least…Correct me if I’m wrong?), constructive criticism is still something they should accept. Then they’ll know how to appeal to a wider audience and gain more viewers/subscribers. That isn’t necessarily negative feedback, keep in mind.

      7 years ago
      • you guys should put in their shoes…you guys are not being rude ,but still you guys keep on expressing your disappointment way too much….how many rants? (I think they already know you guys are upset about your fav artist not being reviewed) How do you think they are going to feel? I would feel bad if all my hard work is not being acknowledged.

        7 years ago
        • Hey there, thanks for acknowledging that the expression of disappointment hasn’t been rude, and I absolutely agree. :)

          I also believe that S&M have a better perspective of the realities of catering to their audience–meaning, I’m sure they know that anything they put out, there will be good and not-so-good feedback. It’s just the way life is, and what so many have voiced already: you cannot please everyone. Yet they still choose to keep doing it. I can only guess, but it could be because the fun of making videos outweighs the negative; or the positive reviews outweigh the negative. Now, whether or not they get negative or positive reviews, it’s also their choice whether to listen to it or not. Both choices have benefits and consequences.

          I guess my point is, people are free to express their disappointment (and they have!) in a respectful manner, and it’s part and parcel of this endeavor S&M are doing. Ultimately, I agree with the suggestion that maybe a sentence or two in the blog post on their thoughts about why they chose one video over others would help alleviate the disappointment. It looks to me there’s a lot of confusion on the system, hence a lot of comments saying their choice seems “unfair.” I hope S&M take these negative comments (sans the rude ones) as valuable feedback. However they choose to use the feedback is up to them.

          I have this mental image of S&M always holding their breath when they’re about to publish/make a video live. Do they have wild thoughts of what is the audience going to think? Will they hate us or the video? etc etc. :P

          7 years ago
        • people’s feedback is always important so I agree that people should voice their opinions but some people are saying that what they are doing is constructive criticism (Some people are actually been reasonable) some other people are complaining and saying that are giving constructive criticism when they aren’t. Yes, if I were them I would be like stressing out after uploading a video….I would be like are they gonna love it are they gonna hate it?

          7 years ago
        • I wouldn’t consider my posts a rant. In fact, I have logic behind my disappointment. If S&M thought Lee Hi’s MV absolutely needed to be reviewed, they definitely could have done it next week. Lee Hi is popular enough to maintain first place on the charts for another week. On the other hand, YS’s MV is about to expire so we’ll have lost the chance to see that reviewed after three weeks of voting. That, added to the fact that S&M vetoed over YS’s first place (at least that’s what I’ve heard), is a little disappointing, I have to be honest.

          This does not mean I’m not acknowledging their hard work. I found this week’s KMM to be hilarious and love it. I have also made posts to praise its content several times. Their choice, though, was what I didn’t like so much.

          7 years ago
        • what you said sounds reasonable but some people are going over the line

          7 years ago
      • they actually do earn from kmm via ads, but putting that aside, I agree with you. I think it’s fine if people voice disappointment. It’s not like they’re be raging haters (which people should NOT be), they’re just politely showing their opinions.

        7 years ago
      • Good point, however, they do this because they love it; not to get famous or broaden their audience appeal. If something isn’t fun to them, why would they do it? I, personally loved this review, but to be honest, there are weeks I don’t catch every segment (particularly the KPop Chart Update), because none of the songs appeal to me. That is on *me*, as to whether I will invest my time viewing what they’ve produced. It’s not on *them* to find my particular favorites and dance to my demands (polite as they may be).

        7 years ago
        • Of course they do this because they love it, but part of it, however little, is also because this is their job. It’s great when your job is something you very much adore doing, but it’s a job nonetheless. If they didn’t care in the least about their popularity, they wouldn’t have the segment on liking their videos/subscribing to them/etc. at the end of every video. Apparently they earn money via KMM ads as well, which I wasn’t aware of.

          And I’m perfectly fine with that. If me liking them is helping them earn an income, I’m perfectly happy to do that. But I guess my point is that, even though they’re not required to “dance to my demands”, it would still be nice if they took my (and the general public’s) opinions into consideration, as professional bloggers.

          7 years ago
        • I know that Vloggers post videos about things they like….it’s not all about pleasing other people (but they do care about the audience though you can tell ) but some people here are saying pretty much that because we are your main source of income, you should review videos we like.

          7 years ago
        • yes I agree….Let’s wait and see how things are gonna be from this moment on. I’m pretty sure that they are gonna pay attention to every fandom. I hope that there are not gonna be more disappointed people with the next MV.

          7 years ago
        • That is also a good point, I don’t want to be mistaken for, as another commenter very well said “crazy fan who thinks all we can do is praise them” I was more looking to the side of someone who works on things like this, esp on FB there was a lot of backlash. Likely M&S can use this constructively and not just take it to heart

          7 years ago
        • I can understand. Just like you said, this response must be as disappointing to them as their choice is disappointing to us. And I’m really annoyed at the people who are just outright rude (not even going to bother calling them Nasties ’cause they’re not). But yes, I do sincerely hope S&M can take this constructively for their future KMMs. (:

          7 years ago
        • That’s cool, too, I get it. I am just really glad that they have stayed true to themselves, first and foremost, bc that is why I have always been a fan. the day I think they are sell-outs is the day I will probably lose interest and move on.

          7 years ago
        • I completely understand losing an awesome MV and song to a more popular artist. However, any sort of democracy only works when everyone participates & follows the rules, otherwise having the voting system would be a complete waste of time and effort. S&M set up the system so they could review the MV that’s in the #1 position at the designated KMM-selecting time, and each week they keep things fair by doing just that. Even if some artists have been reviewed more than others, it is best to stay as democratic as possible to keep everyone as happy as possible.

          I understand how upset everyone is, as my three favorite artists have collectively been reviewed twice, but I would say everyone is more upset with the voting system and not S&M. Yet think of how much more everyone would be upset if S&M just chose a video each week. Voting keeps things as fair as they can possibly be.

          S&M would lose way more of an audience if they just chose their favorite video each week, because they have told their audience over and over they only do KMM for the #1 video. I do think they will appreciate the feedback, but by deviating from the voting system they would lose their hard-earned credibility and therefore much of their audience’s respect.

          I think asking S&M to review the voting system would be the best thing to do, but really there is only so much improvement the system can undergo due to the key variable that operates it: fans. “Rose” was picked because it had the most fan votes in a specific amount of time, which understandable given Lee Hi’s fanbase. There really is no perfect solution, other than getting more votes & hoping a more popular artist doesn’t release anything.

          7 years ago
        • I’m sorry, I must correct something here. Maybe you may have missed it, but a few months ago, S&M implemented basically a veto system. They choose a video to review out of the TOP 3 videos. So, Yes S&M choose the video they want to review. For the most part they still review #1 but the last Lee Hi video was the first time they used the veto power. They chose her over (I think) Infinite. It looks like S&M once again used their veto power to choose Lee Hi over someone else that was in the #1 position (This is going off many of the comments that say HYS was actually in 1st place at the end of voting). I think this is what has disappointed so many people.

          7 years ago
        • Thank you for clarifying, I didn’t know that there was a veto system in place.
          I personally am not upset by this at all, but that seems to be why many people are. It’s understandable though.

          7 years ago
        • I agree, everyone has been very civil and reasonable in this debate. Makes me proud to be a Nasty :’3
          I wasn’t aware they chose the videos now; I haven’t been watching any videos much due to school work. Oh well, I guess the underdogs will just have to fight a little harder next time :(

          7 years ago
      • Oh I agree that constructive criticism is always good, Its just like if you spend all this time working on something for others (esp on your own blog) and its like all your work goes to waste. This probably will help them with future choices but i guess I just feel like they are probably just as disappointed in these reactions as some the ppl were with the choice. :

  4. I really thought Girls’s Day was going to be reviewed because it had been in the top 3 for 2 weeks, and normally when a song is in for that long s&m pick it grr>.< and this song is meh anyway compared to her last two, hopefully girls day next week!?

    7 years ago
    • Nope, this was our last week. We will drop off of the charts before next review.

      7 years ago
      • It’s a shame I thought it would be reviewed, and how they chose Lee Hi even though she could of stayed on for another week or two. I seem to remember them changing the chart system for a reason…

        7 years ago
      • How do the charts work exactly? I mean, I remember this one time a video just came out and it was already #1 but #2 had more votes. I forgot how they run their charts.

        7 years ago
        • After a week their points start declining, after three weeks (pretty sure) they expire and fall off the charts.

    • i thought the same thing for Heo Young Saeng

      7 years ago
      • It’s frustrating because both were good songs with good videos and they had both been up top for 2/3 weeks and along comes Lee Hi and she’s picked straight away even though she could of held on for at least another week!

  6. Actually so far the only person who I am not so pleased about the tone they are using on this page right now is you. Everyone else is sharing this disappointment in a constructive and relatively respectful way.

    • Uhm (although it’s “an hour ago” comment) “salt” makes the “wound” hurt more doesn’t it?

    • I am a moderator, but as fuuko ( the other moderator along with caricakes and Simon and Martina ) commented elsewhere, the Kpop music Monday pages are slightly different and we are not really as strict about what people can talk about in the comments here.

      Yes the complaints get tiresome, but you have to realise that we always get masses of complaints after each Music Monday. It is just that today, it is majority complaints.

  8. I love Lee Hi, but I was looking forward to Young Saeng. So, I guess I’m a little disappointed :( Going to go vote for him like crazy, maybe next week?

    7 years ago
    • Please don’t start arguments with people now. It is obvious that many people are disappointed and many of them are going to comment about it. Once it is done in a respectful way, it is fine ( even though each disappointed comment makes me feel a little bit more sad )

      But it is not going to help to tell people to shut up. It will just make things worse. If anyone is going to tell anyone to shut up, let it be a mod.

      • We don’t have any control over the youtube comments, and they are pretty much always like that.

        Commenters on the website are usually a whole lot nicer.

        7 years ago
  9. The way I see it S&M figured it would be a while before another female artist had a chance at being reviewed so they should take the opportunity particularly since its so different from her last video.
    I was hoping for Heo Young Saeng too since the MV is so funny and delves into Saesang fans/stalkers
    But I for me Lee Hi, Heo Young Saeng, Girls Day… all would have been good!

    7 years ago
    • But that excuse doesn’t work because Girl’s Day had been on the top a couple weeks too.

      7 years ago
      • I’m pretty sure they did, rewatch it. I think I specifically remember them mentioning Big Bang and G-D (or one or the other).

        I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure I remember that because I was mad when they brought up top 3 but they brought up a lot of points that convinced me.

        7 years ago
  10. Yes, this particular choice for a review has pretty much created a very negative reaction. I feel really sad reading about how disappointed so many people seem to be. But to give props, most people seem to be doing it in a respectful and constructive way. Maybe all of these comments would serve to inform Simon and Martina better about what the Nasties want.

    :-(. honestly it still feels bad when everyone is so disappointed.

    7 years ago
    • Yep, I feel really horrible for them. It is the same here and on Facebook.

      7 years ago
      • They’re human beings after all… I don’t know how much I would’ve endured it nicely if I had been in their shoes… I get the feeling like we’re (the ones who want to make peace) “covering up the holes” but the “water” keeps coming and we can’t hold the “wall” in place much longer…

        7 years ago
        • yes I agree. as much as I hate people complaining here…I think something has to be done now. Maybe not having a kpop chart is a solution I don’t know. I was excited that Lee Hi was going to be review (I wanted other girl groups to be reviewed better like glam) but whatever I still really like Lee Hi and then when I was reading comments on youtube people were not happy and at the end I didn’t enjoy the review.

          7 years ago
        • Yeah… I think I have to agree with you… for now it will be better if they don’t have a kpopchart(at least until the waters calm a bit more…*it’ll take a while).. and just have a kpop cocktail instead (so we’d know what artists/groups are around and know what music monday to expect)… you know I don’t know why people like, for a certain artist/group to be reviewed because you never know if you’ll turn out to hate the review in the end… for the group/artist to gain more popularity? I don’t know but that’s one of the reasons for me… so I’m saying that even if group/artist I want to be reviewed, doesn’t…even a kpopchart update is enough… you know this Nasty-S&M relationship can’t go on without total trust…they’ve shared all their dreams with us, happiness, sadness…and showed that they care for us… so they expect the same from us… and they expect the same from the new Nasties…just like we (the old ones) got our way through …they have to find their way TKIR: D-Unit was in the same situation and I asked for at least a kpopchart update with them, but they didn’t include them and I understand.I’m sure they had a good reason for it. I totally love Lee Ha Yi^____^ If you could see the BTS footage…. how can even someone hate her? Next time read the blog first, watch the review and then read the comments :)

        • Listen.. it was nice talking to you but unfortunately I must go to sleep *I’m so dead X___X tomorrow cause I have work* if you can help out and calm the crowds a bit, it’s very much appreciated…if it isn’t possible then it can’t be helped *sigh*Thanks! Bye!

        • ok good night…I know right?

          7 years ago
        • Yes…they said once that doing two reviews it’s basically impossible…well since they have other stuff like interviews and tldr’s and whatnot… unfortunately not…

          7 years ago
    • That is true, the comments should be about Lee Hi. But if you really read the comments, they are giving constructive criticism about how the Kpop charts are run. And they are doing it in a respectful way. So as much as the disappointed comments make me sad… I actually can’t see anything wrong with people voicing their opinion.

      7 years ago
      • Just butting in to say that commenting guidelines here on blog posts are not the same as on the kpop charts. We need to be strict about staying on topic because of the point system, but on the blog posts, I generally leave people alone unless they’re being incredibly rude.

        7 years ago
        • Yes, that is true. Making it even more so fine for people to comment on their disappointment.

          I need milo. Or chocolate. Alas, I can have neither. I feel like I am in the presence of a dementor.

          7 years ago
        • Or a possesing dementor … TKIR: I loved the review. Maybe they didn’t express themselves well on the video but the blog post was explicit enough. I could only sense their affection for the song and singer.

          7 years ago
    • I don’t think that they should be this offended by ppl disappointment. they are not doing KMM only for fun they are full time now, so they should pay more attention of what the audience want, that’s all. And they shouldn’t take it as an attack against them but as feedback. I get it that it’s hard sometimes, but I think they are doing what they really like to do, otherwise they wouldn’t take the risk to make the EYK studio happen, so I think it should give them enough strength to bear with some disappointed fans and also they recieve so much support as well. But they shouldn’t bury their heads in the sand because of some negative feedback, especially when it has some reason this time.

      7 years ago
      • I think that what S&M want is total freedom to have fun and choose what they think is best KMM material(some videos especially the more serious ones don’t make for a funny kmm) and not feel pressured doing it you know… “We’ll upload this cause B fandom will be upset and start hating us for not reviewing D” If they don’t act as themselves what’s the point? TKIR: I really love this song *____* I’ve been playing it on repeat and S&M’s review was awesome!

        7 years ago
        • I get your point but if they want real freedom then they should just get rid of the voting system. It’s there for a reason. They came up with it, so they should give more thought in it, especially now that they changed the rules. They have bigger power because they can veto the first MV, but it comes with bigger responsibility as well. So I think when they choose not the MV which won they should be prepared that some will be disappointed and also they should give some reason about their choice, I think that’s the least what they could give for the ones who came to the site every day and voted for any MV and made it first or kept an MV on the top 3 as long as possible. So when they ingore these votes and pick something else I think they shouldn’t be suprise that there are a lot of disappointed fans. Also they should gamble a little bit. I mean now they could think about how long an MV was in the top 3 and if they pick an older this week, they probably will still have a chance to review the newer MV next week. It’s not like big releases just pop out of youtube we can know it at least a week before. Well this system is new for S&M as well, so I hope they will learn to use it more wisely in the future.

        • First they thought they could take it and I thought so too but apparently things got over control (we can’t possibly know/tell what they go through everyday) and they’ve forfeited the comments sections and message reading…
          as for reasons. I’m certain they do what they do for a good reason (and you might say that I have blind faith… it might be so but they’re the ones who created the website and sometimes we take advantage of their kindness). My final argument: every new fan or a fan that came along the way and didn’t get to know them well enough, should watch ALL their videos (trust me it’s important) and if even then there still are uncertainties and complains than so be it… nobody is tied up to nobody… some can leave and some can stay (for further confusions about understanding this comment I left another long one to Gilda Ocambo) TKIR: I couldn’t be more pleased with this review :) Lee Hi’s awesome!

          7 years ago
        • Yeah I’m sure they have good reasons whatever they do, but since even the biggest fans can’t know what they think I think it would be nice if they would let us know why they pick song over an other. I think it’s not a too big thing to ask and I think it would make a lot of people calmer.

  15. I feel bad for S& M…..I hope they can handle all this. Maybe they should get rid of kpop music charts and review the videos they want so no one gets disappointed.

    • Comparing the comments I’ve read here on this KMM with those back when Nu’est first debuted and The Chaser wasn’t reviewed and pretty much any video that was mostly negative in tone towards the song/video, etc. etc….let’s just say I’m sure S&M can handle it. The comments on this site have been polite discussions on why they aren’t happy with the choice. I haven’t seen anything terribly horrible being written about Lee Hi or S&M themselves. None of it compares to the things that used to show up on here. (As for YouTube comments, I don’t read those. I know that the comments on the blog posts usually tend to be from actual Nasties and not the random interloper. Plus people on YouTube just tend to be nastier…and not in the EYK Nasty way.)

      That said, getting rid of the charts pretty much contradicts what S&M seem to want EYK to be. They have said multiple times that they want to have audience input and to work hand in hand with them. That is the reason behind the charts. I don’t always agree with the way the system works, but I think the last thing they should consider doing is taking away the charts.

      • I was just suggesting it’s not like I’m demanding I’m just one person giving what I thought might be a solution (not like my opinion is gonna change anything) Besides to be honest I didn’t have any problem with today’s review. I like Lee hi and I like Kpop music mondays….

        • You put your opinion of what could be a possible solution and I put my opinion on why I don’t believe that solution is one that would work. I never said anything about you demanding this change, you said that all on your own. I also didn’t say a thing about this weeks KMM….You’re taking things way too seriously my dear.

    • they’re quite professional. there are times when people (being fans and S&M) will be disappointed and i don’t see why you want to get so extreme and ask them to get rid of kpop music charts….. asking them to do that is probably more insulting than them hearing fans put their two cents in the comments box. they do this because they enjoy it and i’m ure before they started this business, they knew what was going to come along with.

      besides, people who are on here sharing their disappointment has not once said anything rude toward simon and martina. tripleS are well known to be quite honest and kind so reading their comment aren’t in a bit hurtful. relax dude….

      • Hey it’s not just triple s, Girl’s Day fans and even other ppl who don’t love either still found this jacked up and are expressing their disappointment. I hope S&M comes back and reads these comments to see WHY we’re so upset and don’t just blow us all off and have something identical happen again.

      • I’m suggesting because I’m concerned I’m seeing that people lately are unhappy about the kpop charts. Omg and people here say they are allowed to voice their disappointment, opinion whatever they wanna call it….Don’t try to make me sound like I’m insulting them when I’m actually on their side. I’m not the one here who is “disappointed” To be honest I’m very satisfied with S&M Video’s review.

    Thank you for pointing out the same thing I felt! I really wanted to add “Rose” to my playlist but I didn’t feel right about it and kept repeating the song over and over. And after the video I went back and looked for the “moment” the song could have caught my attention but didn’t. And the skits were hilarious! “Master Rose Competition!” I was giggling loads. Thank you for positing up the video! ^^

  18. I guess s&m favour songs that are loved by many, not songs loved by a mainly fanbased market. Which is great but not for money making imo.. haha.. love you guys ♡

  19. Oh come on people,YOU’RE disappointed by all the hard work Simon and Martina do for us? They should be disappointed in all the negative comments and complaints their Nasties are giving them. Seriously though, they don’t have to do ANYTHING for us. So just sit back, take a deep breath, and enjoy the video! :)

  20. Maybe this KMM just worked better with all of the fanmail treats they received the last couple of weeks. More like a Nasties shout out video. Maybe it was just me, but it did seem like this was a shorter, more prop driven review. But hey, how many times can you honestly say you got two KMM’s? Hell, sometimes it’s not even here until Tuesday!

  21. It’s not as simple as “keep voting so it stay in first place”. There is an algorithm built into the charts that after about 25 days a video is on the charts, the points drop to 0 so it has no chance to be reviewed.

  22. For the video showdown: GD all the way. His video not only has a storyline, but it also has a *far* greater variety of images, colors, textures, etc. to look at. Each scene is just stuffed with things to look at, and the camera cuts are slow enough that we can actually take in a lot of what’s in the scene. In this case, more is better — way better.

  23. I was actually expecting Girls Day to be reviewed, but I was hoping for Heo Young Saeng. I’m actually a bit surprised that you have only used your veto power twice (I believe) but both times they were for Lee Hi (or am I wrong and Heo Young Saeng wasn’t in 1st place when the voting was over?).

    I had hoped that you would use your Super Veto powers to allow lesser known groups and groups that had not been reviewed to get a KMM in order to provide a bit of diversity to the KMMs. I still have a bit of hope that it will still happen, but it has been greatly reduced after this (actually it started decreasing after Nu’est’s last video). Maybe you will surprise me one day though.

    As for the song, I agree with you. It’s missing something for me. I really liked 1234, sorta liked It’s Over, and Rose is just meh. It’s very pretty but it doesn’t really do anything for me.

    I vote GD.

    • Please DO NOT begin to assume what my likes are and who I am a fan of. You are under the erroneous assumption that I only vote for my bias group or “Oppa” that I might be a fan of. Did you even read my comment? I expected Girls Day to be reviewed. I actually like their song. I was hoping for Heo Yong Saeng because the video was awesomely funny and I loved the song! I actually usually try to watch many of the video that are on the charts and vote for the ones that I think are really good and would make a good KMM (Male or FEMALE).

      I was hoping that they would not only use their veto power to bring more female artist to KMMs but also lesser known artists who never had a review before. Lee Hi could have easily hung onto the top 3 for another week (both times she was on the charts) because she has a big fanbase and her video was just released. Girls Day and Heo Young Saeng do not have that luxury because they have been on the charts for a while and after 25 days they WILL NOT be eligible for a review.

      So DO NOT try to tell me what I am disappointed NOT UPSET about.

      • I can express my opinion.. is it all you guys are doing?

        You were not even being that nice when you were expressing “your dissapointment” NOT UPSET about.

    • He was in first place I believe on the charts page, but I am not sure what it looked like on the mod page ( that’s what Simon and Martina use to determine it ) at midnight because Lee Hi took over very soon after on the Kpop chart page.

    • Dont worry …it’s not a biasness episode… just an “let’s see who really cares and sticks along” kind ( they really love Lee Hi though)
