Kpop Music Monday: the 100th Episode Special!

September 4, 2012


Share Post

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!

  1. My fav KMM moment? First thing that comes to my mind is: “They fly so high, they touch the sky and punch the harmless eagle in the eye” – EPIC! And also – I know it can’t be described as “moment” – I love all the random characters like Mordney, Brohoho, Dr Whatsherfrigginname, time for kisses girl and others :D And how you notice all these little things: Max’s mysterious box, a fridge full of pickles and so on.
    And lastly- what I guess I like the most is the fact that after these two years you guise still present your honest opinion instead of saying what blindli-in-love fans want you to say. Keep it that way!

  4. My favorite kpop music monday moment has to be the “BUNNIES. ARE. PUFFY”, mostly because I’m a die hard B.A.P fangirl and when I heard that the first time, my bum was on the floor.
    Get it? Because I..y’know..laughed my ass off…*ehem*

    ANYHOW I just thought that was pretty genius, considering the masked bunny is their mascot and all.
    Also just because I have to say it, my other favorite moment was when Simon lost his pants in super slow (exo) motion. I mean come on. I wish I could lose my pants in super slow motion, that would be SO COOL.

    Favorite KMM : When you guys always supporting JYJ in your videos, thats really so cool of you.
    as you said: “JYJ is f**king blocked in Korea”
    I’m glad you care… thank you simon and martina.

  6. I’m going to post here because it’s not totally clear whether we’re supposed to leave our answers under the 100th episode or the 100th episode special (though, logically, I’m guessing it would be the 100th episode… anyway).

    Where to start? You do realise you’ve set an impossible task this time, don’t you? I could easily say your little kitten’s reactions (particularly when it wandered across in this video), or the Mordney Present vampire or the Ministry of Banishment for practically ever song that Junsu did, or the spoof versions of the songs you do (Eat Your Kimchi style was brilliant). Max Time! had me laughing for hours (I showed that to my friends), but the Music Mondays I love most are the ones where you’ve done B.A.P.’s songs, and I have to say… I think the Music Monday moment that just pips all the others is the Power episode when Simon was dubbing over Martina because she lost her voice (and the Shower song). I don’t know how many times I re-watched it; it was just genius. I showed it to some not-into-K-pop friends when they came over to visit me in Belgium and they ended up insisting that we watch all the Music Mondays thus far and some of the songs so that they could understand all the in-jokes (I was supposed to be taking them around Brussels that afternoon). One of them commented she really wished somebody would do what you’re doing for Western pop music.

    Sorry… that was kinda long….

    I would also like to say that I have never been able to view a packet of Doritos in the same light after that SHINee episode.

    And before I forget: youtube name = soullessgingerninja

    Thank you for the wonderful videos! Helped me settle in to what could otherwise have been a terrifying ex-pat year for somebody just out of school. You two are awesome.

    And I vote for TVXQ in balloons. There’s nothing that beats those animal costumes XD

    • Edit: I just remembered something else. I can’t remember who you were reviewing, but it was when a couple of different artists had used the same brick-walled room as the one U-KISS had filmed part of one of their music videos in, and the deeply-meaningful message of this particular Music Monday video was (quoting Martina), “U-KISS WANT THEIR ROOM BACK!” It makes me choke with laughter every time I think about it. Which is quite a lot.

  7. I don’t need an extra t-shirt (I already have a sexy Spudgy shirt ^^), but I thought I’d share my favourite parts of your KMMs thus far:

    The episodes with your parents.

    In fact, I like all the ‘cameos’ your friends make in your videos (like that couple from AnsanAnswers, Brendon, Martina’s friends in the cafe when Simon dances in, Nick – who I think opened some lockers for you, the friends who came over to play monopoly deal and drink milk, etc). As Simon said regarding GD&TOP’s High High, “It’s nice to see [Simon and Martina] getting out of their boxes and interacting with the real world. Real girls!!” HAHAHAHA!!! xD
    Especially since you entered the stage when all you did were indoor videos. Now you have WANKs and FAPFAPs, and good on ya for making that change. ^^b

    But I especially liked the episodes with Simon’s dad, when he visited Korea back in the day, the episodes with Martina’s parents when they came to Korea as well, and also their KMMs in Canada. I just feel really touched when I see how supportive your parents are of your bizarre jobs (I mean, you’re not rich lawyers/doctors), to the point that they happily act out embarrassing skits in your videos for the whole world to see – and by embarrassing, I mean, uh, very professional and entertaining *cough*

    ……….*runs away* ((((((((((((( >_>

    Hi Simon, Martina, Spudgy, & Dr.Meemerworth ♥,
    I have been following you since the 1st KMM & I just want to say that you 2 are just amazing! I have to say my favorite KMM moment(s) are when Simon kept singing “Kiss & touch me, rub my banana.” That is my alarm for when you guys post up a new video (: Also, I love when Simon sang “I’VE LOST MY PANTS” I swear, I sing this for everything. Ex: “I’ve lost my phone! Hope to god it’s in my pants” &… anytime Martina sings or smiles, anytime Spudgy dances at the end of the episode, and anytime you two make me laugh ♥ Those are the best parts of KMM! Thanks for the memories!

  11. My favorite moment was when Spudgy raged because of Zelo and Ricky’s blue hair. Spudgy being cute is a bonus. Oh, and also Junsu’s fridge full of pickles! :D-PwNdPiEP.S: I love KMM!!

  12. i want a t-shirt!!!

    my favorite kmm moment has got to be the swan dance from Girl’s Generation “be my baby” and the fact that you kept doing it again and again in other videos, and wanks and stuff. it’s just the most hilarious thing to me. also, i’d never heard the song when you guys reviewed it and i grew to love it so much and now it’s definitely one of my favorites ^_^

    although… does my favorite moment have to be one of the ones you showed in the video above? because if so, i think your gangnam style parody is hands down the winner. plus, you included all your past inside jokes in the lyrics, which was pretty awesome.

    oh and i also want to say congratulations on the 100th episode. i think kmm are definitely your best videos and what you guys are famous for. i’ve only been following you for about a year, but i actually went back through your archives to watch all the past kmms… you guys are THAT funny. so well done *clapclap* actually, i just recently got to the very first ones, and i almost choked when Martina was doing the video battle at the end and saying some thing like “120 people voted for vid no.1 and 140 people for vid no.2. wow, thanks guise!” and i was like “wait… she’s excited about 300-ish people voting?!?” *neverending laughter* Still. i think it’s awesome you guys have evolved so much. don’t you?
    As for the GD kmm though, guise… it was not your best… why so short???
    oh, but i agree with the “wild and young bit”… actually, i couldn’t hear he was saying that at all at first, i thought he was saying something in korean… fail T_T
    PS: my youtube name is the same as this.

    PPS: i’m sad you guys didn’t talk about GD making-out with the giant Barbie…

    PPPS: Martina, your make-up and hair-styling is the hottest yet in this video ^_-

    and I prefer GD-one of a kind!

  14. I have to say one of my favorite K-pop Music Monday moments would be when you guys are saying “BROHOHO” . I always laugh every time you guys mention that word! :P …and it’s still hilarious until now. One of my favorites also would be Batoost and Bilasa :) Every time I see them on the internet or watch their videos, I always say those words (Bilasa & Batoost).It’s like it’s always automatic that I will say it every time I see them :) Haha

    HAPPY 100th KPOP MUSIC MONDAY EPISODE! Looking forward for more videos!!

  15. 100TH EPISODE HAPPY DANCE~~~~~~!!!

    Wow….it does NOT feel like 100 weeks of Music Mondays! (well….probably 98…or 97…since you missed some for important reasons lol)

    But! Out of all of the ups…downs…lame-ness and such…

    The most unforgettable Music Monday had to be the DBSK Keep your head down week. It was full of laughs, tears, and anger throughout the entire 6 minutes and 36 seconds.


    ……yet so lame LOL

  16. Although you guise have had so many memorable moments, which will go down in KMM and K-pop history, one of my all times favourites was during your 1 Year Anniversary for KMM, when you were talking about Itaewon Freedom (DUNUN DUN DUN ITAEWON) and wondering how people will someday make fun of our culture.
    “I am apologetic, I am apologetic, I am apologetic”, “There is a glass panel device between me and the female robot that I desire. I will now commence to lower that glass pane device”, and the best of all time: “HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA” “Oh no, he is infected by the Kanye Virus”
    Never ever gets old. Congratulations on 100 episodes, and here’s to hundreds more!

    My top three MM videos.

    #3 FT Island – Hello Hello
    It was the second MM video I watched and it was a home run. Plus I got to see Flaxton Street jump the shark.

    #2 Psy – Gangnam Style
    Eat Your Kimchi Style best EYK song ever.

    #1 MM video is U-Kiss – Believe
    The Captain Spudgy’s Kpop Video Crisis game was LOL so it beats Eat Your Kimchi Style by half-a-Spudgy nose.

    I’ll be watching the next 100 MM videos.

  20. Youtube: fatjuicy

    lol, my absolute fave moment was when you guys reviewed Psy’s “Gangnam Style”

    and Simon was recreating the dance in several public locations, one being in an elevator.
    LOL! I could not stop laughing and the look on that other dude’s face, you know, the one standing over Simon while hip thrusting, was awesome.
    Props to you for even doing any of that in the first place.

    Congratz on your 100th episode!

  25. youtube: puppichu

    My favorite Eat Your Kimchi moment has to be the Animal suite dancing around korea for Chuseok.
    But since that’s not really KMM related my next favorite memory has to be you guise always placing little things around your apartment for us to find! (the notes on the tapped TV remote, your laptop backgrounds, Toilet paper and cup for SHINee’s review, ect.) I love it because you always make things so interactive with your fans! It makes me feel so much closer as a viewer and is one of the many reason I have stuck around for so long!

    Ohhh! Thats really hard to choose >< I love so many of the little inside jokes. But I think the one that I use the most is randomly singing about rubbing my bananas…. It gets really awkward when people aren't nasties xD I say LIKE A MAN a lot too when people ask me how to do things. For ex: How do I do problem 9 on the trigonometry hw? Answer: LIKE A MAN.

  28. youtube name : infinitelybeasty

    Every moment is my favorite moment on eyk. Honestly, I could choose when you first started calling Beast…BATOOOST in Breath and did the invisible sandwich thing. Or I could choose the whole dance you did in Nothing’s Over in gym clothes, just because I’m Beast and Infinite biased.

    But I’m not going to choose them, because the one moment I absolutely love is the segment in your F.T Island Hello Hello review. The whole take a nap, wake up head to the music, flail your arms around to stop the smoke, gets me every time. The sarcasm and hilarity of it all is just tooo overwhelming.

  29. When I first thought about my favourite EYK moment, I said”man, this question is really hard to answer, cheese”, but then, I started remembering all the crazy stuff you guys have said through your videos, and this 100th Kpop Music Monday Episode Special has helped me a lot. I really really like your videos, they’re so fun, and they distract me from everything I’m doing (yup, you guys distract me), and I laugh so much everytime. So, if I had to pick one moment of ETK Kpop Music Mondays, I would pick the turtle neck moment. I mean, common, we could see a man at his house looking awkwardly at Martina lolololol, all beacuse of TOP’s fault. Anyhow, thatnks guys for making my Mondays less boring. I’m a nasty nasty girl from Peru. Keep kpoping (I mean, like Hyuna, in Bubble Pop, but with Kpop, lolololol)! :D

    my favorite was probably ran over the turtleneck sweaters. I don’t know why but it was sheer comic genius. Oh, and pretty much all of Simon’s T-shirts :D

  32. Ughhh, I can’t choose just one! One of mys favorite Kpop Music Monday was when Martina pretended to be Super Junior’s stylist on SFS and she came up with their “expensive, designer-label” clothes. I loved the “eat your kimchi style” song and actually think of it when I hear the original song. Same with What is Love. But what makes me crack up is when Simon tries to hit on girls with the “I’m ready to bingo!” H-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s! (youtube username:wowgchvzfj)

    My favorite moment has to be “Seungri, Time for kisses!” It cracks me up every time! Second to that would probably be Simon dancing across a field because Martina couldn’t~

  38. My favorite moment is definitely “Dial tone! Call me!” in U-Kiss’ 0330 review. It’s just awesomely absurd.

    I’m not taking part in the contest, I just wanted to share. Nothing to do about the shirts design, that are super cool, but these times I’m just careful about where the stuff I wear/use is produced and in which conditions, and District Lines didn’t convince me.
