Kpop Music Monday: the 100th Episode Special!

Hello all you Nasties!

This here, today, is our 100th Kpop Music Monday! Thanks to a all of you for sticking with us for so long, and for not booing us off stage (or the internet). For our special, we’ve got some things we want to do, which we’ll mention at the end of this post. For now, though, let’s start with our review G Dragon’s “One of a Kind.” If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out here:

So, as for the video itself, let’s begin with a disclaimer: there’s far too much for us to talk about in this video. There are tons of different approaches to take, tons of different talking points. We could have talked about the symbolism the entire time, but our video’s already 10 minutes long, and we kinda want to keep these videos no ridiculously long. Then we could have talked about G Dragon’s weird hair, which – it seems – a lot of people don’t like, from the comments we’ve read at least.

One of the things we don’t really get to talk about for Kpop Music Mondays, though, is how much we disagree about songs sometimes. We really disagreed about this song and video, but talking about it thoroughly in video would take too long. That’s what this site’s for, yay! Unadulterated rambling!

OK, so here’s the deal: the imagery of G Dragon hanging with his crew and looking hard – we’re not sure how we feel about that. Well, Martina feels no way about it, but I get the hibbly jibblies watching it. I don’t know why. I can’t fully put my finger on it. I think it’s because, to me, to look hard with your crew is something that suggests street cred, which – yes I know I myself don’t have any – but I don’t think GD has any, either. Am I wrong here? Maybe he’s a lot more gangsta than he lets on. I could be wrong, but I don’t think he is gangsta or hood in any way, and so this screams of insincerity to me, and it makes me feel icky. Sure: maybe GD is just acting here, like he is when he’s playing tennis. I don’t think he’s sincerely trying to say he’s a tennis player, so why should I think he’s sincerely trying to be gangsta? I don’t know guise; I don’t know. Help me through this! Am I misunderstanding something here? Martina sure thinks so, but we can’t put the words to it properly.

Anyhow, if you like the song more than Simon does (it’s alright, not not GD’s best stuff), you can pick it up via iTunes, though, that’s only a music video link. Can’t find the link to the song itself. Hrrm.

OK! That’s it for now. I feel like we can’t have all too serious a talk here about the video (sorry for people looking for a more protracted discussion) because we’re just happy to have reached what is, to us, a pretty big milestone!

So, for starters, here’s our special Music Monday video. It’s pretty much a compilation of our favourite Music Monday jokes ever, the jokes we keep on using over and over again. If you’re new to Kpop Music Monday, then this will serve as a primer to our lame humour. If you’ve been around for a while, hopefully this will give you a few chuckles.

BE WARNED, THOUGH: this is over 18 minutes long! So, you’re gonna need to have some free time on your hands to get through it all:

Ha! We couldn’t help but squeak out a few awkward laughs out loud in the coffee shop as we were editing this. Seriously, guise: our skits are so incredibly lame, and we can’t help but laugh, not because they’re funny, BUT BECAUSE THEY’RE SO LAME.

Anyhow, we want to thank you for watching our videos and for letting us continue to do this. So, we’d like to give away some Eat Your Kimchi shirts to you awesome people. Yes, it’s not a Kpop CD, but we didn’t know what CDs to pick. GD? That’s just this episode: what about the 99 others? Know what I mean? We’ll do other Kpop CD giveaways later, for sure, as we always do.

So, we’re giving away an Eat Your Kimchi shirt, a Bilasa shirt, a Batoost shirt, and a Spudgy shirt. If you want any one of these, here’s what you gotta do to win!

    Music monday fave would have to be the “Getting slizzard like a wizard drinking lizards in a blizard” aka: 2pm Hands Up.
    Funnily enough I don’t acutally like the song itself but love the review video. Crack-Up funny. Awesomey incorporation of the inside jokes, flaxen street and the rollin down the sexy window.
    Top lines: Martina *droll* “Put your hands down sh-sh-shut up” XD
    and Simon – “P-p-please finish your sentence”
    *Clapey clapey* good job :)

    There are quite some epics moments in your series, but i thing I choose FT Island – Severely.When the boy gets hit by a car and the girl starts crying because she will get late to her ballet competition (or something like that).
    I laughed so hard with that part…

  6. My favorite moment is when Simon did his “Math Poetry” during your Music Monday review of U-Kiss’s “0330”. I remember that was back when I first started watching your videos. I was in my college’s computer lab and I was laughing so hard. People were staring at me. It was also funny how AJ and Kevin said that they saw your video on it too.

    Honestly, I have so many favorite moments (a lot of which were in your special). I love it the most when you two do your own versions of the song. They are so funny and creative. Love ya guys!

  7. my favorite moment has got to be when you guys did a tl;dr in the middle of your KMM….I really can’t remember which video it was in [I’m trying to watch all of them right now hahah….] but I thought that was so memorable. I think it was shinee…or someone with multi colored pants.

  10. Thank you Simon and Martina for 100 fun filled episodes of Music Mondays. I really appreciate all the hard work that you put into each episode. I don’t know if you will read this because there are so many comments but if you do, just know that all the time, hard work and lack of sleep that you have sacrificed to make Music Mondays possible will forever be appreciated. I love you both so much and I look forward to watching the 200th episode of Music Mondays. Your loyal Nasty forever, Marta <3

  11. Well. That would have been SO HELPFUL a few months ago, when I first discovered Eat Your Kimchi. I had to search for the origin of your every single inside joke on my own. I’m quite proud of myself, I managed to find everything except Mr. Brohoho.
    And I can’t help but notice how the two of your best covers are of B.A.P’s songs. Coincidence? I think not.
    (After watching your rendition of “Power”, while listening to the original I kept expecting the lyrics in the chorus to go “I took a showeeeeer”. It took me a lot of time to overcome that.)

  14. One of my favorite Eat Your Kimchi moments was Hongki’s (Hunky’s) Demonstration on what to do when you enter a burning building. enter the burning building. Flail around hopelessly. Give up almost instantly. When you see a band playing music, JOIN ‘EM! After you play a song with them, confindently walk out of the burning building into the arms of the firefighters? FANBOY ALERT(: So… dude’s a psychic. I’m a psychic. I predict that I will win a shirt? right? guise? right?;)
    Hahahahaa love your guises videos and congrats on your 100th MUSIC MONDAY!! (Awesome background music):D

    My favorite KMM moment has to be when Simon and Martina did their interpretations of the plot of Bilasa’s Beautiful Target. Now I just see the legendary Conquerors of Kitties and Teenage Girls’ Hearts as strippers at a Bachelorette party….thanks, guys.

    My favorite KMM moments are how creative you guys are when you do your own impersonations of the artists and dress up. It’s especially entertaining to see the reactions of people on the street when you film outside and start doing random dances. :P

    Keep up the great work, it’s always a great time when I watch your videos!

  17. Wow I love when you guys do you interpretation of the song…my favorite so far is the one about bunnies are fluffy, love the rap!!!!! Your music Mondays are the best!

  18. I just realized that one of my favorite skits was from a K-Crunch update, not KMM. :( It’s a brief review of Jay Park – in the skit, Simon is photo-stalking Martina, but not for long, ROFLMAO!!

  19. Wait…I’m supposed to just pick ONE of my favorite Kpop Music Monday moments?? Is that even humanly possible?? I’m REALLY NOT good at these kinds of contests, and I have many favorite EYK KMM moments…but I’m going to have to say that some of my favorite moments are:
    – Mordney Present…amazing character, enough said.
    – When Simon gave Super Junior a 5 out of 5 for the English portion of “Sexy, Free & Single,” and then changed it. Oh, that was hilarious.
    – Soy Un Dorito!! I now have to say that every time I open a bag of Doritos or it just feels wrong.
    – BILASA!!
    – Supporting JYJ.
    – Dying not from a lack of oxygen but from hypothermia.
    – Fantastic Elastic poetry reading.
    I greatly appreciated the compilation video you made…I remember watching all those videos, even though I haven’t been following you guise since the start of it all. Keep up the amazing work!! Love you guise and your videos!! :D

  24. I’m VERRRYYY proud to say that I watched every single one of those 100 videos and can actually guess which of those scenes come from which videos!!!…
    One of my all-time favorite and the very first KMM video I saw was GD&TOPs Knock-out!!! Once I saw Martina doing her happy dance/roll/jump on ice I know I found a co-VIP at heart <3 <3 <3

    I really suck in this kind of contest but I REALLY want that EATYOURKIMCHI shirt!
    I feel like I'll have bragging rights if I got hold of one of those! But even if I don't win anything, S&M please know that you made LOTS of Mondays better because of your videos :D

  26. My favorite Kpop Music Monday moment probably consists of all the times you guys have poked fun at U-KISS because, even though I love them dearly, they are sO EASY TO TEASE. Especially the “don’t deny our R squared pi”! Every U-Kiss joke has forever stayed embedded in my heart~

  27. Hey guys, I just wanted to say… YOU’RE AWESOME!
    The first KMM I saw was your review on f(x) “Hot Summer”. We, foreigners, are sweaty because we’re NASTIES. It was love at first sight. I’ve been a subscriber ever since. I shall now rephrase my previous statement. You guys are not just awesome, you’re hilarious and truly inspirational. You managed to make a living doing what you love despite the hard times. I wish both of you the best of luck on your future projects. I’ll always be NASTY :D

    I think this is the first time I commented directly on your blog…
    Take it away, random comment!

  28. My favorite eat your kimchi music monday moment was in EWW’s (IU) review for you and I when Simon named the goosey Lord Pennington Wigglebottom III ! It was absolutely hilarious and seeing Simon defend the name was amazing! :D

  30. Congrats on 100 episodes! My favourite moment is probably Simon’s dance in One of a Kind, although his Hyuna impersonation comes in at a close second.

    My favorite video would have to be B.A.P “power” because of simons epic and hilarious song and even though marina’s voice was gone. it was super hilarious when simon was dubing over her and making fun of TOP. haha thank you guys for the very entertaining videos! they always brighten up my day :]

  33. Love y’all! I’ve been an EYK fan since September of 2011, and I’m so glad you two are here to make us laugh, help us discover new bands, and to spread the word that other cultures can be fun, too. :-)

  35. My favorite KMM moment was when you guys reviewed Block B! ^^ They even watched your review and appreciate all your criticism but your video actually got more people interested in them and that’s always a good thing! :D I also like how you guys put a Block B wallpaper on your Macbook during the Thailand controversy~

    Congrats for your 100th episode : )
    As for my favourite Kpop Music Monday moment, without any hesitation, it was when Martina “wakes up” and all of her actions are “sound-effected” : P Hilarious. Particularily her roar. What a b2st … (ok, that was lame. Sorry sorry)

  37. My favorite EAYK moment happened during the “Sherlock” Music Monday episode, where the two of you Russian danced your way across the park. My sister thought I was having a some kind of fit, I was laughing so hard. There are so many moments/skits that have made me laughed, but this particular one is the favorite. Also, thanks you all, I actually look forward to Mondays!! :) (youtubename: sapphirestarlight)

  38. MY FAVORITE MOMENT IN KPOP MUSIC MONDAY WAS WHEN SIMON TALKED ABOUT EXO AND CREATED THE EPIC EVERLASTING AWESOMENESS KNOWN AS RIPITO FLIPITO SIPPO SLOW MOTION

    I think my most recent favorite KMM has to be B2ST’s “Beautiful Night.” I loved the fact that you pointed out there were NO Asians in the crowd and that the actors were just that… actors, not die-hard Batoost fans.

    I seriously look forward to every video you upload and want to thank you for all your hard work. Can’t wait for the next 100 videos! <3 EYK FIGHTING!!

  40. :)One of my favorite Kpop music mondays was the Pastelpantaphilia. My sister and I memorized that whole thing. We would recite it all the time, and our friends would be like… “O.O what’s with them??” Haha
