Vote for How to Dance Kpop Style 2011

Hey guise!

So, if you follow us on Twitter or Facebook, you might have seen that we were asking for beta testers for a new page we were working on. Well, finally, it’s live and ready to go!

Here’s the deal: we never actually pick who we’re going to review for Music Mondays. We leave that up for all of you to vote on. You’d vote on our old request page, on Twitter, and on Facebook. Problem was, we had to count all of these votes ourselves. The Facebook poll was easy to count, but our request page? Holy snap. Please take a look at what we were dealing with before:

Old Kpop Music Monday Request Page

Check this out

Also, people would complain if, say, we reviewed a video that didn’t win on Facebook, and they would accuse us of cheating. Well, as you can see, there are tons more votes via our Request page. But you couldn’t see the votes that we saw. So we decided to change that.

Enter this new project. Voting will now be transparent. Basically, you vote by clicking on the thumb up. It’s that easy. If you’d like to vote more, then your Facebook Likes, Tweets, and Google +1s all add to the tally, as well as comments. Engage with the video as much as you can if you want it to win for Music Mondays. The page has an algorithm that tallies a bunch of different factors into ranking the hottest Kpop videos out there, and we determine that based on your interactions.

For now, we’re starting off by testing it out for How to Dance Kpop Style, 2011. Vote away! Voting Ends December 19th. SHAZAM! Once we’re finished that, we’ll start using the page for our Music Mondays and K Crunches. Woot!

Also, we mentioned in the video that we want to encourage good comments to the videos, rather than spammy McSpammersons trying to get their videos to win. We’ll ban spammers that try to vote multiple times in the comments. If you’re worried about the comment policy, don’t worry. You’ll know if you’re spamming, and so will we. For our good commenters, we want to give away Three CDs for How to Dance Kpop 2011. We’ll look at the comments from the top three videos that win our poll, and we’ll mail out CDs to the people who – we think – made the best comment in each. Let us know what you think of the song, dance, video, whatever. We encourage you to engage with the video and with others :D

This is a sucky comment.

This is a sucky comment.

One of the main reasons we made this chart is also because we want your voice to be more accurately reflected. For example, a lot of people have complained that U-Kiss hasn’t won any awards on any music shows, and – really – we’re surprised by that as well. Based on the responses we’re seeing, U-Kiss is insanely popular on our site and with international fans. But it doesn’t seem like the international fans’ voice really counts in the music awards shows, and that’s too bad. So our page is a step away from those charts. We’re looking at YouTube videos only, and how much you engage with those videos, not how much Korean people engage with the videos via Korean media sites. Sounds fair?

Another reason we made the page: we know that some of you aren’t really into Kpop as much as some diehard fans, and voting might not be something you’re that interested in. But, from time to time you might feel the need to brush up on what’s popular in Kpop. This page can still do that for you. We’ll display the top 60 videos of the moment. Watch them all on that page, come back next month if you need to brush up again. Yeah!

Lastly, this is still a work in progress. We plan on adding a lot more functionality to it in the future. For now, though, we think this page is gonna be pretty cool. If you’ve got any feedback, we’d love to hear it. You might find some bugs if you’re using older or less popular browsers, but nothing crippling, we don’t think.

Yeah! Let us know what you think, and get voting!

    2. U-KISS – Neverland (I swear, they need to win awards SOON! >.:D)

    I’m really looking forward to this video; your How to Dance Kpop 2010 was the video that made me start following your blog! ^.^ Good luck with getting through all of the comments O.O Thank you for always making these wonderful videos! :D

  10. I reckon u guys should put in: 
    Super Junior -Mr. Simple or A-CHA
    TVXQ -Keep your head down
    Infinite -Basically any since they’re like dancers of the YEAR! :D
    Beast -Fiction

    Because all of the songs above have really good cheorgraphy and dancing skills. :D Plus the songs are addicting too. One more thing, I LUBE U GUYS SIMON AND MATRINA! U GUYS ARE AWESOME!! :D <3

  11. I am actually a giant Super Junior fan but I would have to choose
    TVXQ’s – Before U Go. It is not the most extravagant video but it works
    so well with the song. Usually videos that remain so stationary are
    boring to watch. This video to me continued to entertain me throughout
    the whole song. And who doesn’t love the dancing? It’s pretty awesome
    and I sure many people would like to learn it. As well the song is
    flipping catchy. It has been stuck in my head for over a week now.

  19. TVXQ – Before U Go

    Recently became addicted to this song after a long span of being repulsed and then intrigued.

    The lyrics are super awesome. Such a heartfelt love song I thought. Then I saw some of the live performance videos and was like “yeeeh, this is a baby making song. They’re probably just saying that so they can bone…” But to be fair, they probably could have just danced like that to nothing and still have had that result so kudos to TVXQ for putting a lot of effort into their visual viagra…. I like to call it Eye-agra: for Ladies.

    ….my eyes are so hard right now.

  20. As much as I love this new voting system [you guise must have put a lot of time into making it so kudos] I have just one problem with it. It’s the fact that you can vote multiple times in the span of one day. It just seems that it would be more fair for all the videos if you could try to make it so one PC could vote once every day, rather than having fan-girls voting a million times on a single video in one day just by leaving a page and returning to it again.

    And just on a side-note, is it possible to remove songs that don’t really have a dance, other moving passionately to the song? It’s just confuzzling me right now, and it is just a minor irksome detail than the other one above. Thanks, and happy voting everyone!

    • Is it really possible to vote multiple times? Last time I checked, I could only vote once a day, on any particular video. I mean sure, you can click it again, but I don’t think the actual vote number increases.

      And I completely agree with your side note, but maybe they’ll use the live performance dances or something?

  28. tbh I find it “stupid” that there are Korean Bands with Japanese entries. It’s “how to dance kpop 2011” and not “how to dance kpop in Japan 2011”

    But that might just be me.

    • I don’t entirely disagree, but I don’t believe in being legalistic. Flexibility ftw!! :p
      Because if we were to stick to the roots of this show, then it would be ‘The most popular dances amongst Korean students in 2011’ – in which case it wouldn’t matter where then dance was from or when it was released.
      If it was strictly about the dancing, then well, some of the top 10 MVs in the chart don’t even have a dance in it.
      If it was strictly Kpop, then we’d have to kick out all the lovely K-rock, K-rap, K-hip-hop, K-electronic…you mention it.
      And tbh, no matter what language they sing in, if the singer is Korean, most people label it as kpop anyway. In Japan, anything by a korean singer is ‘kpop’. Same for Chinese or English – is SNSD’s ‘The Boys’ still considered Kpop, when it’s all in English? Think about it.

      In the end, Simon and Martina are the ones making the video, so they have the ultimate say. No? :)

  33. This question makes my stomach hurt and my brain. There were a lot of wonderful dances this year. ok ok ok…ummm…I really really like Seungri’s What Can I Do. The dance is just simple fun. It’s fun to do when watching and its cool. Seungri really impressed me this year. ^ ^.

    I also totally totally…totally in love with the Wonder Girls and Orange Caramel currently. Orange Caramel’s Shanghai Romance dance is very simple and so cute. Which I like because it makes it easy for us fans to do. Not all dances have to be complex to be good. It reminds me alot of Para Para dancing since the main focus is the arms.

    Wonder Girl’s Be My Baby is how do I say…very wonder girl like. Wonder Girls’s choreography always reflexes their lyrics well and has its moments where it really shines. I’m currently trying to learn it.

  40. Super Junior, It’s You. I feel like that song needs a lot more credit and popularity. It’s a wonderful song with a ballad and upbeat feel. Not only is the song great but the dance is to die for! I love the dance soooo much! <3
