KpopCharts Update: Don’t Stop Cream

Hyuna “Ice Cream” – Vote for it here!

Oh HyunA! We don’t even know what to say about her videos anymore. They’re so…special. Though we don’t particularly like the way she portrays sexuality, we still find her videos so chock full of ridiculousness that we know we’d have a boatload of fun talking about “Ice Cream.” It’s a shame that people aren’t voting for this video as much as they voted for Troublemaker and Bubble Pop. I think people are worried about us going on an angry rant again. But we won’t! We’ll have fun! We’ll make the nastiest, sexiest, most arousing and disturbing video Kpop Music Mondays has ever seen. We will destroy your libido and control your nightmares for months! Well, I guess that’s a good reason not to vote for it. Uggghh.

Epik High “Don’t Hate Me” – Vote for it Here!

Before we say anything about the video, we’d like to say hi to Cari Cakes, who helps moderate our KpopCharts, and who is also interning at YG and helped out with the promotion of Epik High’s new album. Hi Cari! Yes, we do have someone technically both working on Eat Your Kimchi and at YG. Coincidence?!?! I think not! Turns out that Cari’s been warning YG against us this whole time: “Stay away from them EYK people’s. I work with them. THEY’RE CRAZY!”

Also, our other moderator, Fuuko4869 is a huge Epik High fan, and has been anticipating their comeback for months.

And, on top of that, we really like Tablo. We loved his solo work for YG, and we really sympathize with him. He’s got crazy ass netizen stalkers. We’ve got some angry people on Twitter. Not really the same, but we feel like poop after reading angry Twitterers: we can’t even imagine what Tablo’s going through. We can, though, feel immense sympathy for him.

Altogether, all things are pointing you to vote for Epik High: the Eat Your Kimchi staff love em, and the song’s great, and the video’s really interesting as well. WIN WIN situation, so go vote!

B.A.P “Stop It” – Vote for it here!

Speaking of angry people on Twitter, I’m sure we’re about to get a bunch more after what we said about this song and video. HOW DARE WE SAY BAD THINGS ABOUT B.A.P.!??!? WE’RE HATERS!

We’re not haters: let us clarify that. We love B.A.P’s other stuff. Warrior, No Mercy, and Power really makes them stand out from other Kpop Boy Bands, who – a lot of the time – just seem to be repeating the same formula. B.A.P. brought something different to the table, and we really like that about them, and so to see them go the cutey boy route makes us feel sad in our bellies. Don’t vote for this song. We don’t like it, and we’ll just say more bad things about it. Don’t be angry at us for saying that, either! I’m sure some of you B.A.P. fans feel the same way about this song, right? RIGHT?! We can’t be alone here in this!

  1. You guys need to put dates on your updates. I’m gen Y, I don’t hav the patience to search for clues!

    • A completely new professionally coded ( as in done by a pro and not Simon) site is going to be rolled out in a few days so hopefully things like that will be a part of it. I too wish there were dates on things. *crosses fingers*

  2. Compilation of posts relocated from BAP’s page.
    Moving them even though they technically should be deleted altogether.
    Btw, you guys should watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN2WzQzxuoA

    Okay i’m one of those who has decided to stop voting as well.
    I suppose it’s because i’m fed up with the voting and also the fact they told us not to vote. That just made me want to vote so they had to do a review. Everything has probably already been said and i don’t know how to say things. This has nothing to do with the fact we lost.
    I don’t hate S&M and i will still watch their videos. I just won’t vote anymore, i no longer see the fun in it. If i remember what else i wanted to say i’ll come edit this post.5

    Chibi K -> HelloEmski
    they didn’t say you shouldn’t vote for it. they just said they wouldn’t like to review it. probably because they thought it would be a boring music monday since they don’t know anything interesting they could say about it.and because they wouldn’t say nice things about it and don’t want fans to be disappointed or angry.
    I really hate how everyone’s saying that S&M said you shouldn’t vote for it. You guys should listen more closely -.-0

    Barry Adams -> Chibi K
    I’m not a fan of this song but S&M did say not to vote for it. They didn’t directly say it in the video, but in the write up they said:”Don’t vote for this song. We don’t like it, and we’ll just say more bad things about it. Don’t be angry at us for saying that, either!”

    For me personally, it is less the actual voting system and more what it incites (though the whole twitter post thing about including Youtube views in the point system is probably the worst idea ever. Smaller groups will definitely never get reviews that way, so I hope this isn’t real). There is so much competition going on. You go on the different pages and get fans saying things like the other group doesn’t deserve to be reviewed because they’ve been reviewed this number of times, because they suck, etc (i.e. with Block B it was because of the Thailand thing, definitely saw some posts like that). You get fights and anger and frustration builds. I’ll admit that I’ve been one of those people who, in trying defend against angry remarks, get snapped at and I snap back. And I know I’m not the only one. It becomes less of a fun thing. But, that is why we have our lovely mods who are pretty good about keeping things in line! You guys are seriously awesome!!!
    It also doesn’t feel good to be voting your ass off and then watch a KMM that just feels..unenthusiastic, with less focus on the actual song and video and more focus on the funny skits. The skits are great, don’t get me wrong, it’s just that sometimes it feels like the song is ignored. I see it in comments all the time about how S&M didn’t mention this part which is like the highlight or one of those things that all fans are talking about, things that you’d think S&M would touch upon.
    In regards to KMMs that feel lackluster, I’d assume it stems from a lack of interest in the song on S&M’s part. I’ve been stating this on this site for a while, but I think they need to get rid of the chart update video and bring back the Kcrunch cocktail. The chart update just incites that competition again because it brings in a bunch of people who never vote to come vote for whatever, and its those things that bring up last minute losses (I’ve seen plenty of heartbreaking comments about how a video in their last chance is in first but the chart update brings in votes for the new video which can easily take first because it doesn’t have the decay on it.) If they did Kcrunch instead, S&M would have the ability to talk about videos that they want while leaving the KMM to the fans vote, and there’d be less anger over who wins the fan vote because it is actual Nasties and not the casual Youtube subscriber popping in last minute. At least then there’d be a semblance of everybody being happy. And S&M can always have a little thing at the end of the Kcrunch showing the current chart rankings.
    I’m still a Nasty and still support S&Ms work, just venting some frustrations. Might as well right? ^^
    Hopefully this made some sense, I’m half asleep and recovering from the effects of a wedding reception, but this is the only chance I have today to get on here so.. :P


    Maybe S&M should only post MVs they want to review on the chart & THEN let viewer votes. I know that some may think that’s an unfair concept because it risks the chances of their bias-video to not be posted, but what’s the difference in S&M HOPING/stating they don’t want to review a video? So might as well not put it on the chart. I think if they do it this way, they won’t have to make those comments & they won’t be stuck on ideas on how to present KPMM for that video or be scare to make all bad comments. Iif they post MV of only ones they’d think would be good to review, don’t get mad that your artist(s)’s video is not on on the chart because through this procedure, we’ll get entertaining KPMM. I mean, isn’t that what KPMM for? Funny skits, laughter, thought-provoking.. Etc.
    BTW, I am a BAP fan. Also, honestly, I did stop voting for this video because of Simin’s comment. I didn’t feel anything negative toward him because he has his rights to have an opinion & he was just being honest. As a fan, I just want BAP to continue their streak of KPMM-wins. However, I stopped voting because I didn’t want to have a lackluster KPMM video AND I really didn’t want S&M to bash BAP’s work. I get that BAP’s new concept is not S&M cup of tea so I just didn’t want to watch what I already have a good idea of what the review might have consist of.13 3

    Barry Adams -> InImpressiveformxx
    I’ve had similar thoughts. I think it will boil down to what S&M really want. If they want the fans to have the power of what they review, then they should keep the KPOP Chart as is and not tell fans to not vote for something.
    If they want to have their own say in what gets reviewed, then they should tweak the system in some way or change it all together, like give fans 3 videos per week to vote for for only that week and no other voting.
    I wish instead of 1 IP address per 24 hours to vote that they would switch it to 1 IP address per week. to vote. That way the casual fan who may only visit once a week would have just as much say as the fan who visits everyday.
    I hope they still continue to include all videos on their KPop chart cause this is the best source for new KPop videos. I just sort the chart by date and I can see what new KPop songs are out.0

    lunibelle -> InImpressiveformxx
    Hm, I guess if they just put songs on the charts that they want to review a lot of people would be even angrier. I’d rather have them say something bad about a song/video I love than having a preselected choice videos I might no even care for. I understand what you’re saying, I sometimes thought that, too, but I think they have to suck it up if they’re making a fan based voting :D Tough luck.0

    InImpressiveformxx -> lunibelle
    I meant they should post up videos they have ideas for..that means good or bad opinions. Like Simon said he doesn’t want review BAP’s video because he doesn’t really have any skits or ideas in mind forthr review.0

    lunibelle -> InImpressiveformxx
    It would be a lot easier for them to script their videos, but I think they’d get even more people saying they’re biased :D Maybe they’re even a little drained after over 2 years of KPMM. It’s worth a try, but I think that even more people would be unsatisfied, but it might make fans of less popular groups happy. There are sooo many videos that don’t stand a chance, because the international fanbase is too thin, but S&M might find the video awesome. It’s really difficult to say what would be the “right” decision, since there will always be people who’re unhappy with whatever. I hope once they have their studio and enough employees that there will be a solution for these problems, maybe even a review segment on purely songs Simon and Martina want to review. Or a segment on older Kpop songs. I just thought about canceling KPMM altogether, but I think a lot of their viewers want to see those, so they’d probably lose a lot of people if they stopped reviewing. Ah :/ So difficult, but maybe if all of us Nasties would put their minds together, we might be able to help SImon and Martina find a solution for this. :)1

    InImpressiveformxx -> lunibelle
    I get what you’re saying. It was just an idea. I hope this doesn’t turn into a big thing where KPMM is endangered of being cancelled. I would be disappointed.

    Well, even though B.A.P didn’t win, I’ll still come back. I was Nasty before I was a Baby, so yeah. Also, this whole pact thing to leave and not come back is ridiculous, and I’m a little disappointed. So B.A.P doesn’t get reviewed this ONE time (Crash doesn’t count because I don’t think it was even on the chart to begin with and I’m glad it wasn’t because it was a gift to fans), big deal. Our oppas (coughandZelocough) are strong, so Babyz have to be stronger.
    I guess I’m just a little touchy about it because I’m also a L.O.V.E, and I think that if L.O.V.Es are strong enough to sick around, then Babyz should be too.

    Gabriela Wolf -> builtbymachines
    I’ll tell you the process of our decision in short:
    – B.A.Ps “Stop it” came out and our group of Babys was mainly disappointed.
    – All of us were like “we don’t necessarily need to see it at KMM, so let’s not vote too excessively, better to wait for another badass concept”
    – S&M uploaded their KPop-Charts update and introduced B.A.Ps “Stop it”, we Babys: *nodnod* totally your opinion S&M, though, sad you don’t want to review it, but we understand
    – S&M wrote: “Don’t vote for this, we don’t like it…”, Babys: o________o “What??”
    – Comment section here: … *silence*, a few comments “STOP VOTING, S&M DON’T WANT TO REVIEW THIS”, we Babys: ò_______Ó …. “What the…??” ENOUGH! Have we committed a crime or something? That’s not fair! (is that the reward for our helpfulness and reputation?)
    – Babys started voting like crazy again, cause pissed + wanted to defend our boys who don’t deserve something like this + growing idea, song is not overwhelming but the MV is beautiful + decision, this was the last time ever voting for KMM
    – Babys reached to the top, voted, commented, fought like crazy
    – BAP lost anyway, in the last few minutes, paradoxically
    – Babys: *sigh* Okay. Whatever. Bye KMM.

    Jocelyn Himbutt -> builtbymachines
    We aren’t leaving because B.A.P lost. Even if B.A.P did win this time we were still planning to leave anyway. We had a long discussion about this and the majority of our small little group have decided that we no longer want to take part in KMM.
    We’re unhappy with the system overall and we refuse to work with something we don’t believe in.
    Everyone should be able to make their choice about whether or not they want to vote without being judged.

    Michelle Jocelyn -> Himbutt
    So I wasn’t here for this whole “Babyz no longer participating in KMM” thing, but after reading some comments about it, there is something I’d like to know from those Babyz: what is it that you don’t like about the current voting system? And what system do you think would work better? I think that the current system, going by current popularity rather than total points, works just fine. If we went by total votes, then we’d pretty much have the same videos at the time all the time.
    I just…I dunno. Even as a devoted Baby myself, I just don’t understand why people take these things, the voting, S&M’s comment, etc. so seriously and personally. Like, KMMs don’t really have much affect on your groups. I dunno, I just feel like this whole thing is being blown way out of proportion. However, I respect your decision and how you went about it in a polite way. The voting is for S&M to get fan input and it’s totally fine if you don’t want to give that, and it’s no big deal whether you vote or not because KMMs are just for fun. We’re both just expressing how we feel. uvu
    However, I still think that if you’re going to complain about the voting system, you should at least have an idea of how it could be improved instead of just throwing the issue at S&M’s faces and being like, “Do something about this!”

    lunibelle -> builtbymachines
    I think that (at least for some of them) they’re not leaving because BAP lost this time, but because S&M told them to stop voting for BAP, and they’re unhappy with the voting system. That’s what I think at least. I think it’s amazing that LOVES are so strong and I hope that most of the Babies will be back :) Though I think it’s their right to decide to stop voting for KPMM if they think the voting system isn’t right or just don’t want to have the competition going on anymore. :)
    I’m happy that you’re sticking around!3

    • They mentioned there are many segments they’d like to do once they’ll hire editors and have more time. Let’s hope KCrunch Coctail is one of them.

  3. I like B.A.Ps song, If it was released by another boyband who usually have that style I would probably love it. It is strange to see to see them act cute, but I think they do it cheeky and humorously enough for it not to be TOO awkward. But they are balancing on a fine line. More Badassness nest time please!

  4. I actually enjoy B.A.P’s “Stop It.” Having become a fan from the very beginning (and that fandom support being solidified by EYK’s interview with them I might add), I like the fact that they are doing different things instead of being stuck in the same mold. I’ve said this in many other blogs/forums and thinking about it now I have something else to add. Learning about the type of people the individuals of B.A.P are this song actually fits some of their personalities (Himchan for instance). I love that B.A.P broke the “Kpop mold” so many other new groups try desperately to fit into. But if they stay stuck in one genre how can they grow as artists? I like that they’re trying different things musically. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: B.A.P are a hugely talented group of young men. I still think we’ve just scratched the surface of what they have to offer. That they are trying different things musically thrills me to no end. It means they are willing to stretch themselves, no matter if people like it or not. Maybe “Stop It” is a miss, but I choose to look at the bigger picture of B.A.P. I look forward to seeing what they come up with next. To me they seem to be a group who’s genuinely interested in the music and not so focused on the fame and glitz of it all. And with talented leader Bang Yong Guk at the helm, I think they’ll continue on that path.

  5. I love B.A.P but i was really dissapointed. It didn’t surprise me that the next song would be like this as they seemed to be promoting more of their generic love songs recently. I just wished it wasn’t so :'( I want the Warrior B.A.P back! no more of this funny buisness! …..but i have to admit they were adorable blonde asian people ^_^

    8 years ago
  6. I like all of B.A.P’s songs cutesy or powerful.. because they are great guys with great personalities that really stand out. BUT I think they shouldn’t venture too off of powerful because once there in cutesy they are labeled part of the cutesy majority.

    I’m not saying once in a while they can’t say, hey were cute love our cuteness.. but I know a rapper doesn’t want to be labeled cute… or do they

  7. Just to add to my comments I’m thinking that maybe the BAP boys should have dressed as they usually do so that their image stayed consistent and then the demon storyline would come through stronger. Then the guys could have been naughty in class and still be cute in a “we’re being naughty boys” type of cute. Otherwise their street cred has taken a serious beating! (with flowers)

  10. Having seen BAP on various shows I don’t find their cuteness that weird, or sickening as ya’ll see it. They are cute playful boys. Obviously you guys have never seen Zelo and YongGuk’s Never Give Up, Stop It is not the first time they’ve been cute or playful, maybe as a whole but yeah so not the first time.

    I personally love the music video, the acting, the story, the cuteness. I’m not in love with the song, but I do love that it show cases the vocal talents of Jongup, Jongjae and Youngjae. Giving them the chance for their voices to be heard more. And I’m so happy to not hear those damn whistles.

    They eventually have to grow, experiment and prove that they are more than just a one trick badass pony. For me they are the best rookie band of the year, working literally endlessly all year long.

  15. IF YOU REVIEW B.A.P AND YOU RANT ABOUT IT I’M GONNA LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK !!!!! Oh idk can we have a hug or something i swear i’ve been feeling so miserably
    lonely for not liking (a tiny bit) it and being disappointed and being sad.
    eeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrbody was being SO happy about it, i, i don’t know, i
    felt like something was wrong with me, like, why am i the only one feeling sick watching that mv ??! :(((
    No seriously. I’m a hard B.A.P fan i SWEAR !!! IT’S TRUE BELIEVE ME ! I LOVE THEM SO MUCH MUCH !!! but, this won’t stop me from being objective and having my opinions. this mv/song was such a HUGE NO from A to Z ! I don’t like ANYTHING about it. The song, the concept, the mv, the style… i swear i was so… devastated when i watched it my heart was sinking in the darkness of the sea of lost hopes and dreams and broken hearts. I have a hundred thing to say how i’m not buying this and i don’t like it, i could go on and on.
    I am NOT a hater. This… just… isn’t B.A.P. They wanted to do something more fresh and light and pop ? No prob’ ! as far as they don’t lose their identity and style and sound ! but this has nothing B.A.P, imo. anyway…
    If you review it, i hope you’ll stick to your true and objective opinion and stick to it wether fans call you/me/us haters.

  16. gg

    I agree. When “Crash” came out I felt the same. I understand that they are trying to widen their fanbase by appealing to the people who like cutsier stuff but…I’d rather they stick to powerful ideas and sounds. And on top of that, the lyrics to “Stop It” are totally out of sync with the video! The MV is all sweetness and mischief but the lyrics are about a guy fed up with his nagging girlfriend.

    8 years ago
  17. I have to be honest, I don’t really listen to Hyuna… like at all, I just… she’s incredibly pretty, sexy and sexy and some more sexy but you know that’s just it for me. Don’t get me wrong I think she’s a great dancer and she deserves to do well, just like she has, but it’s my own personal reasons as to why I don’t particularly enjoy one artist’s music to another’s, and I just don’t enjoy her’s as much as some other artist’s out there.

    Epik High on the other hand, love love love the comeback both songs ‘Up’ and ‘Don’t Hate Me’ are awesome in different ways. Really thought the MV for ‘Don’t Hate Me’ was funny, clever and original, also like totally perfect for Halloween, haha.

    B.A.P, now as a big fan of B.A.P I have to agree that this “cutie boy” image makes me a little uncomfortable. In fact the whole “cutie” image isn’t something I exactly favour. I have to be honest though the chorus of ‘Stop It’ kind of got me straight away and I actually quite liked the song after a few listens. I also like the video, it’s sort of a light-hearted take on what actually kind of turns into a slightly dark subject. I actually like this song far more than ‘Crash’ I was almost certain the first time I saw them perform ‘Crash’ that B.A.P were somehow trolling us but yeah, I have to admit I much prefer their “WARRIOR” image even if the blonde factor has returned, I just think that a lot of the things that attracted people to them in the first place has sort of been wiped over in their latest songs.

    8 years ago
  18. The only way I’d be okay with Hyuna getting a review is if it went similar to “Bubble Pop.” I’m so sick of all the “reviews” I’ve read on other sites basically saying, “If you don’t like Hyuna, you’re a jealous loner.” No. Hyuna just portrays sexuality in a very polarizing way: you’re either hard up on it or you hate it.

    8 years ago
  19. “Stop it” is a really good song, it’s just was surprising to hear it from one of the most BADASS KPOP groups out there. The only person that “fit” the cutie boy image to me was Daehyun. The other members…honestly, not so much. AND it sucks because I love everything about BAP… BTW, I really wanted “Don’t Hate Me” to win but it seems like “I Don’t Need a Man” will be this week’s KMM. Oh well, hopefully next week! :D

  25. Here’s my shameless [Vote for Epik High] promo!!

    (thanks for the shoutout btw, S&M :D -> see blog post)

    1. It’s perfect for Halloween!! It has little kids dressed up as famous villains!! There’s The Joker, Hannibal Lecter, Scarface, Mr. Han, Two Face, Alex, Chucky, Damien, Agent Smith, Jigsaw, Alonzo, Jason, Anton Chigurh, and even G-Dragon and Lady Gaga!!! :D

    2. It’s Epik High’s 9th anniversary this month, and also their 3 year hiatus, and after going through a LOT of crap, they’ve joined YG Entertainment and are back with a bang!! They’re the biggest and best hip-hop group in Korea – or all time? – and it’s a shame so few international fans know of them.

    3. Their songs are all absolutely amazing – they have the best lyrics IN THE WORLD. They write songs about politics and society, depression and hopelessness, and do it all with super awesome songs that you’re guaranteed to fall in love with.

    If this [Best Of Epik High] playlist doesn’t win you over:

    ….you can check out their cover of TVXQ’s Mirotic? xD

    8 years ago
    • When I clicked onto your playlist I immediately thought “How can Epik High’s amazing repertoire of songs fit in one playlist?”

      Then I started scrolling and checking off personal favorites…
      and I kept scrolling
      and scrolling
      and scrolling

      And that’s just the best of the best xD The songs that didn’t make it on the list aren’t even bad, they’re just not as great as those. But really, what else can you expect from such an amazing group?

      Thank you very much for this playlist; there were some songs that my internet scavenging skills could not find, I will definitely use it in the future :D

      8 years ago
      • Heh heh :D

        It actually used to be waaaaay longer. I just didn’t have the heart to remove any of them, y’know? “But this is a good song too~ D:”

        But yea people started joking that it was a [All of] list instead a [Best of] list ^^;
        So I just removed songs that other people seldom mentioned.

        Anyhow, if you feel like listening to their ENTIRE DISCOGRAPHY, I have a playlist for that too~ xD

  28. I am a little ashamed to say ‘Stop it’ grew on me. It’s got a decent 90s pop vibe that I really dig (it reminds me of the Backstreet Boys, tbh), and I find the way Zelo just… jumps into the song really powerful, despite the cutesy feel. And I like that the video has a story that’s just a bit darker than you get from it at first glance. I voted for it anyway, because I just wanted your honest opinion.
    For me, I know I was shocked, disappointed and a little outraged because I expected more of B.A.P’s old vibe, mostly due to their teaser using the one halfway hardcore song on the album (which granted, is only three songs. Thank goodness.). I feel like they /might/ be trying to switch subgenres and move away from the gimmick that really got them noticed in the first place… and I reaaaalllllllly hope they don’t do that. In the event hat their single album was just a temporary softer side of them, like I thought crash would be, I was able to loosen up and find the song enjoyable at parts.
    However, if this is a permanent change of direction, I completely agree with you. No. Just no. They ARE too badass for this.
    But I still feel like lyrically and in terms of the video there are some redeemable things you could find about ‘Stop It’, hoping of course that it’s another one time thing, like crash.

  30. Listening to Simon talk…I feel like he never saw/heard Crash. I mean…I love Crash…but if he thinks this is un-bap like…Hmm….

  31. I was kinda sad reading the B.A.P part because I sincerely love the video and the song. Simon and Martina, is it okay if I still vote for it?

  32. meh~ i think i’m the only one that likes B.A.P’s stop it >.< i liked crash, it was fun and cute but still preferred their other ones more. With this song it was a step down on the cuteness from crash and rather than cute it felt refreshing and i enjoyed it.

    In B.A.P's case i've liked all their title songs, showing a different concept each time, and i've learned not to label them as one group that sticks with one concept but experiments and i like that about them. Come on~ they did only debut this yea~ i think they're just finding their place and trying out different things, but i get why people are upset about the whole no more warrior style B.A.P. i do prefer that side of B.A.P but i don't mind them doing songs and MVs like this, as long as its not a long term thing…¬_¬

    • Exactly, i didn’t “hate” the song/video… but i definitely hope that they revert back to their original image for the next single. “Yes sir” was definitely the only song that actually sounded like B.A.P to me. Am I the only one who thought that their teaser pictures for this single were totally misleading?

      8 years ago
    • This! I totally agree with you~
      And I’m not a huge fan of cute concepts, but I find this comfortable to watch. It’s not forced, you know? Like it’s a cute song and they’re happy/having fun while performing it…there’s none of that forced aegyo that you sometimes see with some groups, which make me cringe haha

    B.A.P…. like wow….in a bad way. I don’t mind their other stuff, so for them to go from that to………… dancing in a beige room wearing beige studded jackets and all that other ridiculousness… what?!

    The teacher storyline- what? The accidentally hitting the teacher on the face- what?! Why is someone wearing a yellow plastic tablecloth around their neck? The cutesy acting….shudder. And whats with the tail?

  34. B.A.P’s new song makes me shudder and curl up into a little ball of sadness and distress. Actually, even it hadn’t been such a departure from B.A.P’s usual kickass style (i.e. if this had been a song by some other, random band), I’d still have disliked. It’s just… not my cup of tea, let’s say.

    I hope Miss A gets through – they’ve been holding on for a while now and, aside from actually liking their song and wanting to hear what S&M have to say about it, I, too, would love to see a girl group’s MV reviewed for a change. :)

  35. Yet! Epik High’s video is perfect for Halloween. Not only is it awesome that cari is interning for YG but some of our crazy analysis over on the charts has been noticed by Tablo himself and he retweeted an awesome chart one of us made of all (but one according to Tablo) the characters in the video.

    • Yes that’s right~ TABLO RETWEETED ME GUISE >_<
      Oh and Epik High had a treasure hunt to find hidden puns in their video, so since we searched high and low for all of them, we won a signed CD!! YAY!!!

      So make our joy complete by voting them in for Halloween? :D

      THEY HAVE CUTE MONSTERS!! And I mean really, really cute xD
      They're killing people, and blood is spurting out, but they're still cute xD

        • Thanks Nic!! Both me and soluiz (another Nasty who won the signed CD) were all spazzing out xD

          Not to mention Cari (the other Mod) who got to meet Epik High at their latest gig – apparently Tablo said hello to her, Tukutz bowed, and Mithra smiled~ *O*

  36. I’m quite mixed about BAP’s stop it. I quite like that there’s a story and the goofiness of BAP is cute. But…man it does make me cringe a bit because they were so kickass. I was super shocked when they released Crash, I was hoping that was just a one time thing. Oh wells.

    Go Epik High! The MV is sooo awesome!

    Ice Cream isn’t so catchy. But the Engrish totally sells the MV haha

    • Epik High’s MV is unbelievably awesome. So, so much thought was put into it – almost every prop is customised and intentionally included with a reference to a famous movie or something.

      Did anyone find the [Put Obama in the White House] poster? :p
