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.

  2. Personally I would have loved to hear you guys talk about K.Will’s Please Don’t MV but I won’t hate one you for not, especially since I know Simon’s love for Ga-In. Out of the current top three videos on the chart I personally choose Epik High, cause like Simon’s love for Ga-In, I love Epik High. To the bat cave!

  8. Let me cite the comment from the Block B video:

    “Tessa Ledeine • 13 hours ago

    For those wondering. I posted this on youtube too but maybe you haven’t seen it yet so here we go… :p
    “Nillili
    Mambo” is a traditional Korean saying that dates back to ancient times,
    used in various songs to bring energy, life and enjoyment to the music.”

  9. To be fair and show appreciation to people who voted at EatYourKimChi, I really think Simon and Martina should freeze their chart’s calculation while they are away and couldn’t do any Kpop Music Monday’s reviews.

    • Block B wouldn’t have a chance next week as well. Next week would probably be B.A.P or Epik High.

  13. Block B video was shot in Vietnam, i know this because if you read the comment its all like “Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam” and its also the fact that i am vietnamese and i know the words and settings.

  14. Holy crap! I was planning to vote so hard for Miss A because I love their message and them, but mind frugged by the block b one! I didn’t know something with that level of bad assery existed in kpop. Im so used to the dancing in neon boxes and rooms and boy bands who sound a little whiney lately. There is so much humor mixed with awesome and they just cluster frucked my poor brain. And the ending! LOL! D: someone wrap them up in bows and give them to me for christmas!
    BTW, Controversy? What happened? I doubt I will hate them for it, because most of the controversies end up being ridiculous.
    I have come to a decision. I will channel my musical frustration into voting for Ga In, who clearly has found means of relieving both musical and sexual frustrations. lol. Chances are she most likely won’t make it, but it also makes me feel better about letting the cards fall where they may between Miss A and Block B.

    • Block B’s controversy was just a mistranslation of one of their interviews.
      The mistranslation came about during their promotion in Thailand during the time that Thailand had a flood. It was reported in news articles that Block B was making fun of the victims in the flood by saying that they would only donate (if I remember correctly) about $7 to the cause because thats all the victims needed. However in actuality, Zico (who’s answer was mistranslated and taken out of context) said that he only had $7 in his pockets At the moment, where the other members proceeded to laughed at how poor he was. Unlike many wanted to believe, the members of Block B EACH donated about $200 from their promotions in Thailand to the victims before the interview even took place and stayed there to help clean.
      Along with this mistranslations, Block B’s behavior during the interview was seen as unprofessional, especially when in a foreign country. They were said to have put Korea in a bad light by they way that they acted. If you are wonder how they were acting, Block B was being their jokester selfs and were fooling around during the interview (which yes is disrespectful to many).

      But in general the whole thing (in my opinion) blown out of proportions. People were creating petitions for them to disband and kill themselves. Block B was forced to halt all promotions. The members apologized publicly in a video and through letters and Zico even shaved his head to show his remorse for the incident. Thats when Block B kinda went underground for a while to take time to reflect on their actions.

      Although their actions in the interview were a bit disrespectful, I believe that they didn’t deserve the amount of hate that they got (especially if it was just their actions and not the mistranslated interview). I became a BBC DURING and AFTER the incident because I admired how they were truly remorseful for what happened and handled the whole situation professionally. They are truly one of the best idol groups and have grown a lot. :]
      Hope that helped!

      • Wow, thanks! Yikes about that happening to them. Thats hardly fair. Sure, they should probably act better, but thats no reason to send them death threats and stuff. I see what you mean though. I wasn’t really biased towards any group until the T-ara controversy. I hated seeing people treated like that. They were all about how bullying isnt okay yet there they were bullying those girls. So, I ended up watching shite tons of t-ara videos to see if there was any validity to the rumors and all I found was a group that under the circumstances acted like a family. I know what its like to get thrown together with some girls and share the same living space and being forced to work together. Its intense. It can be great, and it can be really bad. The only one who truly handled it the wrong way was KKS, and the girls shouldnt be punished for that. So, somewhere a long the way I totally fell in love with T-ara. I’m currently in the process of watching all of Eunjungs WGM episodes xD.

        Thank you so much for the thorough explanation. I really appreciated that. You saved me a lot of time on google (which should be spent studying lol).

  15. I will vote for my ladies: miss A and Gain. Give these girls a chance!!! Although I don’t have any problems with Block B winning and all.

    miss A’s Touch wasn’t reviewed, I believe and so was Brown Eyed Girl’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. Damn, am I the only one voting for the ladies? I was also hoping Secret or Orange Caramel to be reviewed. But whoever wins, I’m sure it would be still an amazing KMM. I can’t wait.

  17. honestly ever since S&M started the kpop charts, there have been a lot of videos that they havent been able to review :/ im not hating or anything (cause you can never win over a fangirl’s love for her oppar), but i wished they had had the chance to review Secret’s ‘Poison’, Orange Caramel’s ‘Lipstick’ (cause they havent done orange caramel yet), etc . instead of GD 3 times in a row :S i also hope they review K-Will’s ‘Please Don’t’, and maybe even TVXQ’s ‘Catch Me’, because they have stuff to actually talk about >.<

    • I kinda wish that instead of the Kpopchart Update videos we had the K-Crunch Cocktail. That way they reviewed things fans want but also things they want.
