U-Kiss – Stop Girl: Kpop Music Monday

September 25, 2012

We told you that if U-Kiss won the KpopCharts this week, we’d release their interview footage sooner than later. And so we released it yesterday. Check out our Interview with U-Kiss + Backstage Footage for “Stop Girl”. But now, it’s time for our Music Monday review. Woohoo! For starters, if you haven’t seen the video yet (shame on you!) you can check it out here:

Woohoo for U-Kiss not being homeless anymore! In previous Kpop Music Mondays we commented on how U-Kiss are often in squalid dwellings, and how they seemed like Kpop idols turned squatters. But not anymore! They have their own place now! Great success! Even greater success is that we weren’t the only ones who thought this. We spoke with Kevin while they were filming this video, and he said that they noticed the same thing, BEFORE WE MENTIONED IT IN CONVERSATION. Does that mean that U-Kiss and their management thought of that themselves, or did they watch our Music Mondays and take what we said to heart? If that’s the case, then how many other labels are taking what we’re saying to heart? Best case scenario, SM WILL STOP PUTTING UP THOSE GODAWFUL ADS! COME ON SM! I KNOW YOU SEEN MY MOVIES!

Otherwise, we’re not sure we’re really fond of the Black and White version of the video (although Martina disagrees because she likes the B&W version). There’s a colour version online as well, and I think that would have been better to go with. The black and white just seems too…moody, you know? Sure, it fits the song and all, but I’m more into my Kpop videos being vibrant. Since the set offers so little in terms of vibrancy itself, then the lack of colour seems a lot more stark. Thoughts?

Anyhow, we’ve got ANOTHER CD GIVEAWAY. Why? Well, for starters, we’re being given more CDs than we had originally planned, so who are we to keep them for ourselves? You guise worked so hard to get them to the top past G-Dragon (seriously big feat there for our site), and you received the interview yesterday so well and gave it a ton of views, so why not give you more CDs? We got em, you deserve it. So, here’s what you gotta do to win:

And, lastly, here are this week’s Bloopers. Dr. Meemersworth stole the spotlight today. We’ve got no idea why, but if the camera’s on, she REALLY wants to be in front of it and doing all of the crazy things she does. Or she just wants to be cute. Can’t blame her. She is quite cute!

  2. My favorite part of the music video was when Kevin did a solo dance with the girl. I really like it when one member does their own dance, but since it was him and girl it made it more interesting. I also saw the footage of him practicing that dance in the behind the scenes video, so that dance seems all the more real to me, as in something a non kpop star could actually accomplish.

    I vote for Kevin too!

  3. spzimefrk16 here! ;p
    I would have to say my favorite part was when Kevin had his solo dance with the backup dancer…as well as Soohyun’s four-some ;p Normally I’d say something like “I’M SO JEALOUS!!!” and I kinda am ;p lol but it was just so cool to see female backup dancers in their video since, as you guys mentioned, it doesn’t happen often and I feel it makes them look very grown-up and mature. Plus…IT WAS DAMN SEXY!!! lol I know…I’m so nasty ;p kekeke The dance overall though was great too, but the first thing I fell in love with was the backup dancer interactions.

  6. hahaha yeah Simon should totally not hold the laptop anymore!!
    the members should be glad that at least the chess piece wasn’t deadly like in Harry Potter!!
    O_O do you guys actually read fanfic? i accidently came across some SHINee ones…..scary stuff….stayed away from fanfic ever since!!

    i really like the song but at i couldn’t take the chorus seriously because the first thing to pop into my head was the song “Stop! in the name of love”!!

    • i read a B2st fanfic once D; so scared and….creepy that i haven’t read one since, Seungri from BIGBANG raped someone, and Hyuna kicked his ass…it was akward, cuz b2st was all dating the same girl…LIKE IN EVERY MUSIC VIDEO ALMOST EVER!

  7. i liked how it was in black and white, it gave it a more sophisticated look, and the minimal use of props allowed me to focus more on U-Kiss, rather than being distracted by background objects. i also liked the use of female backup dancers, you’re right, they aren’t used enough in Kpop videos, and they added alot to the video and its meaning.

  9. My favourite part of the mv is at the very beginning when Hoon goes hmmmm, no its more like oooohmmm, its just…sooo nasty. The first time I watched the mv I was so surprised because I didn’t expect that sort of melody with the intro music, I almost died.

    Most heartbreaking showdown ever! But that “some days” part was my favourite from the first time I heard it so my vote goes to Kevin. And it’s also my fav part of the video. I mean, after the second verse, at 1:40 when that girl appears from behind Kevin. I know that probably many people would pick the same moment, but it’s just so awesomely done!
    And I have to mention this: THOSE SHOES!!! Man, I love this kind of black&white shoes. And there are three U-Kiss members wearing them in one video! Isn’t this wonderful? Sincerely, thank you Eli, Kevin and Hoon!

  12. Whoa, Martina, your eyes. O.O Iris expanding contacts? Very cute.

  13. omg, this was awesome!
    lol at the sailor moon reference, that was my first thought as well! XDD
    I vote for Kevin. because I like his dance part with the girl.
    and for the giveaway:
    my favourite part of the mv is how dongho completely ignores the microphone in front of him. he never sings/raps directly into it, most of the time he is even turning away. most useless and pitiful microphone ever!

  14. I’m pretty sure a lot of people mentioned the same thing,
    but my favorite part of the video was when Kevin did a solo with the female
    dancer and then Soohyun did a solo with four female dancers. As much as I love
    U-KISS dancing as a group (I LOVED the dance during the chorus), the solos
    really showed just how well each of them can dance individually. Both solos fit
    in perfectly with the theme of the song and were amazing! Kevin’s solo
    impressed me sooooo much when I first saw it. He seemed to have a lot of chemistry
    with the female dancer and his movements were so fluid and beautiful. Soohyun’s
    solo was also really great. I loved how real his expressions seemed when he was
    dancing. The addition of the female dancers was a great call in general. Overall,
    I think this is my favorite video from them.

  15. Awesome KMM! I love it! In the MV I liked Kevin’s part more because Eli’s head is too big. Just kidding! I just liked Kevin’s part more. (Eventhough if all the members were included I’d pick Kiseop’s parts). And about the favorite part of the MV, I really love the dance sequence in the beginning. I think it’s very cool to start a music video with some cool dance moves.

  19. What a terrible question to ask for the showdown! That question might possibly be the hardest thing ever to decide on. I cannot. Eli vs. Kevin… No, I will not make a choice. It’s way too hard!!!

  20. My favorite part of the music video is :41 to :51 when Kevin is staring at the camera with that certain look in his eyes. Ooooh! Also as he is singing the line “Today’s the day I’ll be flying away.” I just like that line for some reason.

    I also like it at 3:09 when Hoon turns his eyes up the the camera. They definitely achieved their goal of doing those certain looks becase it made me swoon!

  21. I was not sure about what my favorite part of the video was, but ended up with Kevin x girl dance. Usually, I’m not fond of watching couple dances lke that, but that part was pretty cool. And I really like that music part too

  25. I really liked Eli’s rap very much, but I also liked Kevin’s dance with the girl very much too… WHY MUST YOU MAKE ME CHOOSE?!
    Favorite part of the video was definitely the very beginning when Kiseop started the dance and each member joined in one at a time. It was cool and I liked it :D second favorite was Soohyun’s “foursome” with the girl dancers. What I would give to be one of them… and I’m not even Soohyun biased.

  27. Not sure if this counts but I really liked the female dancers in the video. Reason is it seems to elevate the boys to men for me. I used to think of them as “my boys” (I’m old enough to be their Noona, trust me) but I saw the video and they’re singing and looks have matured and bringing in the female dancers helped show that more, for me. So, I guess the best part is really just the whole vid and seeing how much they’ve matured… I think I cheated with that answer =( Still TRUE! lol (niemabuggy on YT)

  28. I just LOVE the chorus the “stop girl in the name in love” in their sexy English. It’s stuck in my head.. soo catchy! BRAND NEW UKISS FAN HERE! once S&M said they were gonna interview them i had to check them out and im loving them~

  32. i LOVE the intro where the bass is super deep and my headphones are just booming. then Hoon comes in and Hoon’s voice fit PERFECTLY to start out the song. It was so raspy and sensual…i LOVED it (:
    @8kyoungri3

    I liked Eli’s rap part the best. Kevin’s dance was good but idk…i guess im biased since i like eli and rapping haha.

  33. My favourite part of the video was… well all of it. No? well i
    looooooved how all their faces (and bodies, OMG the bodies!) looked in
    the lights and how the whole song had a really smooth sound, you know?

    And the fact that Kevin danced with the female dancer!! I dont remember
    something like this since the Hyunseung and Hyuna thing!! And that was a
    bit of a shame, since it got so much hate… So yeah.
    *sucks air in
    rapidly* Aaaah I nearly forgot! The ‘ummmm’ at the beginning! THAT was
    the best part afterall. It was sexy. It was sensual. It was everything a
    start of a song will ask for :) I don’t really know how my comment is
    supposed to stand out from the rest but since i realise so many fans can
    put their love into words much better than I do *sob* but its honest
    and true. So very true! :D

    Bahaha Sailor HOON you guys win T_T psh……SAILOR HOON! I’M DYING. also Hoon in the background during the bloopers with Elvin cracks me up. (if you can’t tell I have a bias problem :P called Hoon’s entire existence)

    funnyfishyinseoul here um my favorite part of the Stop Girl MV is Soohyun’s “reaaaaallll” at 2:57 because honestly there is nothing more satisfying than that final glissando in a song, and the way the entire group rises with his voice is just… idk really satisfying ^_^ Soohyun’s parts in general are really nice :D and the harmonies in the chorus are gorgeous… really nicely arranged song.

  36. You guys seem really close with ukiss. I love your friendship with them. Anyways, I would just like mention that my favorite part of the mv (or more like dance) is the body wave….! I tried doing it myself, and I failed completely. You should have seen me!

    My YouTube account is 11kpopluv. BTW I love your videos! And so does my brother. (And he doesn’t know anything about Kpop) thanks for making laugh every Monday after a long dramatic day at school! :)

  39. My favourite part of this MV is the beginning, from 0:00 to 0:22, so basically the intro. I like that all the members’ faces appear in between the dance scenes and that in every dance scene a new person starts dancing, but most of all I love how the focus in the dance scenes goes between blurry and sharp. It becomes a really cool effect.

  40. Oh my gosh Simon you make the scariest sailor moon ever! But somehow it works! U-Kiss! Ahhhh! I listen to your music to get pumped up as i drive to school for my university exams! Looks like i get to add another song to that playlist! Oh goodness, I’m going to have to go with Kevin. The solo was cute and different for the normal “creepily stare at girl” thing we are used to. Besides that he just seems like a genuinely nice approachable down to earth kind of guy. KEVIN! If you read this, HELLO FOR HOUSTON TEXAS!!! Keep up the great work guys!
    ps: Martina! That pink and blue bag you had in the “friend celebration dance” was so freaking cute!
