[Chart] M Countdown 2009/07/16

July 16, 2009

2pm once again grabs first in M Countdown. This is the third time they won first for their song ‘I Hate You’ in the show, thus giving them their 2nd Triple Crown after their previous single, ‘Again and Again’. Their win was kind of a surprise to me though. SNSD and 2NE1 were all the hype last week. I expected the two to be in contention for first this week.

Like last week, they are up against SNSD’s Genie. And again, SNSD did not perform. I don’t know if it’s a good idea that they’re missing out on these kind of shows. These are still publicity and most foreign Kpop fans do await every episode of M Countdown, Music Bank, Music Core, and Inkigayo. Well, most of my friends are. I’m really starting to wonder if SM and Mnet has some issues. Looking back, I don’t remember SNSD performing ‘Gee’ on the music program. But do correct me if I’m wrong.

Here’s M Countdown ranking for this week:
01 2pm – I Hate You
02 SNSD – Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)
03 2NE1 – I Don’t Care
04 SHINee – Juliette
05 Outsider – Alone
06 Seo Taiji – Morning Snow
07 8eight – Goodbye, My Love
08 Wax – Finally You
09 Drunken Tiger – Monster (Korean Version)
10 4minute – Hot Issue
11 Lee Seung Gi – Will You Marry Me
12 K.Will – 1 Second One Drop
13 MC the Max – Rewind and Rewind
14 Koyote – Nonsense
15 Yangpa – Ghost
16 Chae Yeon – Shake
17 Kim Yong Joon – Couple
18 Lee Seung Chul – Broken Fingernails
19 Lena Park – Tears For You
20 IU – Boo

Today was also the first day of 2pm’s goodbye. They’ll be finishing their promotions of their ‘2:00pm Time For Change’ album by the end of the week. So the win was a nice finish for them. 2pm also performed ‘Again and Again’ and ‘You Might Comeback’. The transition between the two songs was kinda ugly though. But it was good enough. They sang live. I actually appreciate groups that sing live. I really don’t get why some singers and groups have to lip-sync. They’re paid to sing.

And here’s their last performance of ‘I Hate You’ in M Countdown. I will really miss this song. I feel this is one of the best if not the best that 2pm has released.
