KpopCharts Update: Man Mambo Bloom

Miss A “I Don’t Need a Man” – Vote for it here!

Yay! A girl band! Oh God! Please keep it in first place! It’s in first place now, but Block B is quickly catching up! We need to talk about a girl group, desperately! T-ara shoulda won with their last video, but just lost in the last minute. Seriously, I think the last time we did a girl group for Kpop Music Monday was with 2NE1’s “I Love You.”

Aaaaactually, by the time we looked over this, Block B is now in first place.

Block B “Nillili Mambo” – Vote for it here!

Question: is it a coincidence that Block B’s two latest songs are confusing N words? Nanlina and Nillili. Try saying “Nanlina and Nillili” five times fast. BBC’s: is this a special inside thing we don’t know about?

Anyways, this song and video are super fun, and are a total goldmine for us to talk about. Sure, we’ll be upset if Miss A doesn’t win, simply because we really want to talk about a girl group in hopes of, somehow, recapturing our dwindling male demographic, but if Miss A loses to Block B we’ll at least have something super fun to talk about. Not that Miss A’s song and video aren’t super fun to talk about. Ah! You know what we mean.

Ga-In “Bloom” – Vote for it Here!

So, we’ll probably never get the chance to talk about this video, but it’s awesome. Ga-In: you know how to do sexuality in Kpop right. You’re sensual, confident, powerful. Hyuna – please take a lesson from Ga-In.

…ok I just realized that I wrote a massive rant on Ga-In vs Hyuna, but then I deleted it, because this isn’t the place for it, I don’t think. I’d rather talk about Ga-In’s awesomeness than what we think is wrong with Hyuna’s marketing. A lot of it included how Ga-In could be sexy without her mouth hanging open. Let’s just say that when we saw the ultra-sexuality in Ga-In’s video, we were taken aback, but we weren’t upset by it. We thought it was awesome and powerful and artsy. It was sensual and just done right, in our books. Though, let me just say for the kitchen masturbation scene: Korean food is good, but not THAAAAAAT good.

Long story short: Ga-In – you’ll always be a favourite in our books.

  4. What happen to TVXQ’s Catch Me MV, I see older MV (such as Crayon) on the chart so why is catch Me not there???really wanna see it get review too

    7 years ago
  5. Because it was there for 2 weeks (I think) and that’s bout the time they remove it (I think..)

    7 years ago
    • They don’t remove videos. Not that I know of anyways. But if no one has voted for it, it drops–and drops very quickly. So it might be hidden a few pages back.

  6. For me, Bloom was a little too much. I feel like I would have been able to enjoy this mv a lot more if I hadn’t been so uncomfortable. The dancing guys were so cool, she looked so pretty, the song was great, the atmosphere of the video was really awesome, and the choreography was neat too. But I actually felt like the (in my opinion) over-the-top sensuality detacted from the video overall.
    I hope people don’t misunderstand what I’m saying as “Oooo, she did some risque dance moves. I’m offended!” It just seemed like the director was trying too hard and in-your-face about it, which quickly made the video lose its appeal for me. Instead of making Ga-In look beautiful, confident, and attractive, it made her seem a little……explicit is the only word I can think of, but that doesn’t seem to fit quite right.

  8. Yes yes vote for Epik High!! :D

    In fact I found a comment of yours from 10 months ago, promising Simon and Martina that if Epik High ever came back, you would vote for them like crazy :p

    *promise I wasn’t stalking you…I was just hunting down old Epik High fans on EYK lol xD

    7 years ago
    • You are not creepy at all. lol

      I have voted for them today, will vote tomorrow. I want to leave a comment on the thread but I was too shy. Feels like I’m the only new fan there. So… yeah.

      7 years ago
      • Don’t worry I’m a new fan too! I just listened to them when Fuuko started promoting their comeback and here playlist. I was instantly brainwashed…I mean impressed. Plus even for a new fan that doesn’t know anything about them, there is so much going on in the Don’t Hate Me video that you don’t have to worry about being new.

        7 years ago
      • You’re definitely not the only new fan around, lol. Most of the peeps there only got to know Epik High a few weeks ago – through this playlist I was promoting like crazy: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLC5015EA46D4E9003

        And we’re very welcoming of new people :)

        7 years ago
        • Why thank you. :) Will check the playlist right nao. But regarding the double title track, what should I vote first? Cuz I like both but there’s only one KMM.

          7 years ago
        • Don’t Hate Me, because:
          – It’s gonna be Halloween soon
          – It’s the more interesting video out of the two
          – It’s currently higher up on the charts
          – It’s Epik High’s personal favourite off their album :)

          7 years ago
        • Okay, I’ll try me best. :) Question, are you fuuko4869? The MOD?

          7 years ago
        • Shhhh :p

  9. (But TVXQ could’ve stood a chance still if the fans would’ve voted vigorously right? (I mean it’s been only two weeks) ) It would be nice if Miss A’s new video would be reviewed :)
    Second video… The video has a Japanese feel to it…the song’s not my type but not bad
    And third… ehem… I thought the video’s intro was very innocent and nice(the piano especially) which was ruined by the rest of the video… If I had heard the song first I could’ve sworn it has a video with people dressed in classical attires and nothing sexy in it whatsoever… I don’t know but these kind of videos get to be bashed first by the non-kop fans (sorry Simon) and I think it would be best if the video doesn’t get reviewed for kpop MM for the sake of your younger fans…

  11. I haven’t been to Vietnam, but I did grow up in various Southeast Asian countries, so I had that same nostalgic reaction to their video. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside *O*

    btw….will you be joining us on Epik High’s page? Next week perhaps? I know you like them :D

    7 years ago
    • Sorry, I had been glad to but I don’t have time anymore! I may not even be able to watch next Music Monday! How sad is this?

      7 years ago
  12. Hi Simon and Martina… I think you just have to talk about the video you want… If you want to talk about Miss A instead of Block B. Just do it! I mean don’t ask us, if you know what video you want to talk about ^w^

  16. This is stupid. TVXQ was on top for 3 weeks after such a long time and they won’t get reviewed?? You guys need to change your website. Like if you’re not gonna do a kpop music monday that week then stop the voting and stop that policy about it dropping if it gets older just for that week you guys aren’t going to do one. All of your followers are upset about TVXQ not getting reviewed so maybe you guys can do a small special on it? It doesn’t have to be as big or clever as the Music Mondays but you guys can do a short review just stating your opinions. It’s just kind of upsetting not seeing anything on Catch Me even though it stayed on top for so long.

  19. What kinds of foods/meals can be considered healthy? Are there certain labels or ingredients that you look for (or avoid) at the store or in restaurants? You mentioned in an earlier TLDR that you’re not eating as much rice, can you give us some more specifics on maintaining a healthy diet?

  20. Because of this: http://tr.eatyourkimchi.com/post/16280990005/if-youre-confused-about-how-the-kpop-charts-get-ranked
    Like if you don’t keep on voting enough the position starts getting progressively lower. So to keep a video in the top position you have to vote more and more everyday.

    7 years ago
    • even if it gets lower..there is no way this MV was going this low,lower then those reviewed?(that wasn’t voted at all)still TVXQ’s Catch me was vated pretty well…so i can’t understand…where is this MV because i can’t see him…:( and i’m sad…that isn’t fair T.T

      • The way the charts also works is that, once it gets to be too old, it sorts by date, which is probably why this dropped so quickly. It got too old, then got shuffled back to when it was released. Maybe. I’m not sure. Our eyes are still quite bad and we’re having a tough time looking at the screen.

        7 years ago
        • I understand the way the charts work… but in Gain’s video all of the facebook-twitter-g+ votes suddenly dissapeared!!! and dropping her by like 5 positions! you should check that out guise!

          7 years ago
        • Considering TVXQ were at the top of the charts for the 3 weeks you were
          away and
          ended up with about 48k votes, would you guys be able to review it anyway? It’s kind of unfair to the fans who voted so much because it would have been reviewed if Music Mondays had happened on schedule.

          It’s at #54 right now.

          I think the only reason why people stopped
          voting as much as they did was because it was ahead of Number 2 on the charts by about 30k
          votes and I think people thought the charts were ranked based on those votes.

  22. I dunno if someone already mentioned this before, but Nillili Mambo (닐리리맘보) is quite old Korean song that’s quite famous, like folk songs. I’m sure if you type it up on googld or Naver it will come up with the original version of the song~! It’s quite catchy and fun :)

  25. I’m loving all the songs in the top 10 this week – breaking all kinds of kpop molds, and stepping out with something new and different in the message, setting, content, issues, etc.
    Besides really, REALLY wanting a girl group to win for once, here’s some other cool songs you should check out:

    EPIK HIGH IS BACK!!
    With not one, but TWO new MVs!! [Up] has a great song featuring Park Bom from 2NE1, and Don’t Hate Me is a personal song from them, with a very, very interesting video, suitable for Halloween. So you guys can also vote for them if you like :D
    Don’t Hate Me: http://www.eatyourkimchi.com/kpopcharts/epik-high-dont-hate-me
    Up: http://www.eatyourkimchi.com/kpopcharts/epik-high-up/

    K.Will’s video has a very interesting plot twist:
    http://www.eatyourkimchi.com/kpopcharts/k-will-please-dont

    Seo In Young has another quirky song and video:
    http://www.eatyourkimchi.com/kpopcharts/seo-in-young-lets-dance/

    Ailee is back and confident with a Skip-Beat-like video:
    http://www.eatyourkimchi.com/kpopcharts/ailee-i-will-show-you/

    Ku Hye Sun’s new video makes us think that YG is broke:
    http://www.eatyourkimchi.com/kpopcharts/ku-hye-sun-marry-me/

    May the odds be ever in your favour!! :p

    • Omg YOU!!! You have single handed gotten me onto EPIK HIGH, i think after your EPIK HIGH post a couple of weeks ago i gave them a really good listen and what can i say i am now a fan of EPIK HIGH. It was strange though because i loved TABLO’s album like seriously love it and I KNEW that he was in EPIK HIGH but i never bothered listening to them (yes yes absolutely unforgivable i know).
      So uhm i must take this time to thank you ahaha :D
      And because i spent a couple of week listening to them i can appreciate their two new releases WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

      Though i am seriously having withdrawal symptoms from K-Indie i seriously hope its back this week i’ve even gone from Russia to Finland to satisfy my needs of Indie :(

  28. as much as i love miss a’s song and mv (i love the message and it’s super catchy!) block b’s is so much more fun! miss a is one of my favorite groups, but block b has such a unique sound that’s not quite kpop and not quite north american hip hop… plus i want to see simon in a dreadlock wig xD

    7 years ago
  29. Hmmm..I watched both Block B and Miss A’s vids.. I vote for Block B NOT because I’m a girl but on the basis that BB has a more fun wacky video.. The bullet-less gun? Classic..XD Miss A’s vocals are great and the dance steps are cute & fun.. But.. They need to work on their facial expressions..There are a lot of instances wherein their eyes were dead.. Dead eyes = Doesn’t feel real.. While the Block B members, especially Zico, brought so much swag to the table with Nillili Mambo (did I spell that right)…

    7 years ago
    • I agree… Miss A’s new album was inspired by Destiny’s Child’s Independent Woman…. Although I liked their choreography a lot of times their body language didn’t reflect the attitude that Destiny’s Child did so great. When it came to the “acting” parts it honestly reminded me too much of the awkward white girls who try acting black (especially when they did the “ghetto” hand gestures). The song and video had a great concept, but they need to be confident in being Miss A, not trying to be the next Destiny’s Child. (Also did anyone else keep getting the video Bills, bills, bills come to mind?)

      While Block B just seem so genuine letting their attitude come out naturally.

      7 years ago
      • Yeah,IKR? Expressive eyes are a must to capture an audience’s attention. If they can’t match their expressions and eyes to the feelings of the song,no matter how beautifully or sincerely they sing it,it will just feel fake.I’m not hating on Miss A,I have no reason to.I’m just saying it as it looks like to me. Block B’s expressions were awesome.

        7 years ago
    • I agree! Plus sad to say it but most girls videos have the concept of “dancing in weird room and look cute”.
      I think videos of Girl’s day and 2ne1 is great they have videos, and they bring something extra sass.l
      But this one was so…. boring, it felt sterile.
      What happened to the videos like : “good girl, bad girl”? They atleast had attitude and a good story.
      But Simon and Martina is right , no girl groups get reviewed.
      But then again no one really makes a story-based mv or something that not is “i’m so cute and dancing in a room theheheehee”.
      BlockB did a great job with a storyline, fun interesting story.

  30. Wow, GaIn’s video…was not expecting that haha. Especially coming from a kpop video. Is this banned from TV there? I’m actually surprised it’s online with that new screening thing they have (they still have that right? lol). It just seems like the type of thing that agency or whatever would be against.

    But I really liked it :)

  31. Am I the only one that is TOTALLY into Exid’s Every Night? It’s even my ringtone now and it’s stuck in my head since it was release. It seems it won’t be review, ever, since Exid isn’t as popular as Ga In, a dramatic come back to first place isn’t to be considered I think :(

    But the video is so weird! I want to know what Simon and Martina have to say about it soooo bad! Damn you Charty Charteson Kpop Chart! WHHHHYYYYY!!!! Oh well…

    7 years ago
    • same here! honestly i had written off EXID because i hated their debut album…. but NOW after watching Every Night i am in love. they have such a great sound. and the video was definitely different…. afterwards i watched I Feel Good which was pretty darn funny…… and all this time i had no idea…

  33. Dear Simon and Martina,
    With the presidential election coming up, do majority of Koreans pay attention to American politics? If they do which candidate (or political parties) do you see them supporting? Have your political views changed by living in Korea?
    And yes im voting for Miss A!!

  35. Holy crap….was not expecting that content in Ga In’s MV. it was all little a fluffy girly wonderland and then BAM she’s getting all friendly with herself on the kitchen floor…..and them Wam Bam Thank You Ma’am a guy comes in and throws her on a bed and then well…..then we get a PG/PG-13 version of an HBO show.

    in the end i really liked the video. the young girl becoming a woman type thing.

  36. I voted for Miss A just cause you seem to really want to review it, hehe! I hope you review Block B another time though!! :O
