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!

  9. 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.)

  10. I vote for G-dragon’s One of a kind!!

  11. 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.

  14. 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!!

  15. 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

    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!
