[Chart] Music Bank 2009/08/18

August 31, 2009

Kbs.co.kr finally posted Music Bank’s August 21 and August 28 music chart. For those of you that don’t know. August 21 was the week that a former South Korean president died. To give respect, some stations opted to change their show lineup. It’s too bad for BEG actually. They won one in Music Bank but the whole country was in mourning. The same thing happened to 2pm back in May when another former president died. They won Triple Crown in Inkigayo with their song ‘Again and Again’ but since the country was in mourning, they couldn’t receive the award at the time they won it.

I think it would be hard for Brown Eyed Girls to win again in Music Bank with the entry of G Dragon. Actually, it would be very difficult to win anything for anyone now that G-Dragon has come back. Big Bang has quite the following in Korea. Also, the songs are really good. I highly recommend the album.

Anyway, here’s the August 21 Music Bank Chart.

01 Brown Eyed Girls – Abracadabra
02 2NE1 – I Don’t Care
03 Kara – Wanna
04 MC Mong – Indian Boy
05 FT Island – I Hope
06 SNSD – Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)
07 T-ara – Lies
08 Lee Seung Gi – Will You Marry Me
09 Kara – Mister
10 4minute – HOT ISSUE
11 Mighty Mouth – Love Class
12 Drunken Tiger – True Romance
13 2PM – I Hate You
14 Bada – Mad
15 Outsider – Alone
16 Brown Eyed Girls – Candy Man
17 2NE1 – Pretty Boy
18 Cool – See Again Again
19 Roora – Going Going
20 IU – You Know

Here’s their August 14 performance of the song.

‘Tell Me’ hits me again

August 31, 2009

As you all know, the Wonder Girls has been opening for the Jonas Brothers since June. At the beginning of the tour, they performed both ‘Nobody’ and ‘Tell Me’ where the latter song is sang with some Korean. At the time, the ‘Omona’ was changed to ‘Oh My!’ After their Canada performances, the girls then stopped performing ‘Tell Me’ at the Jonas Brothers’ concert and concentrated more on ‘Nobody’. The airtime that was given to ‘Tell Me’ was replaced by a tutorial of ‘Nobody’.

A few weeks ago, the girls started to again perform ‘Tell Me’. From what I’ve read, Jordin Sparks was sick so the girls was asked to fill in her shoes. Their ‘Tell Me’ performance was a lot better than what they did in Canada. I’m starting to love the english version actually and I believe some of the fans do as well. I tried to find the lyrics but failed. I think I have to wait for their album to get a hold of the lyrics. Anyway, here’s the clip of their ‘Tell Me’ performances. Enjoy!

I have to say, Sunmi is really the most consistent among them. Sunmi jjang!

And for the month of August, 2NE1 has taken the prize after 2pm’s ‘I Hate You’ last July. It wasn’t that surprising at all that they won. If you remember, 2NE1 dominated the online and offline charts for the first 2 weeks of August. Even SNSD couldn’t beat them.

September is almost here

August 26, 2009

To those who follow this blog, as the title implies, September is just around the corner. I don’t know how much attention I can give this blog once fall comes. I’ll try to update this as much as I can but it won’t be like before. I was actually thinking of joining one of those group blogs but I don’t know if they’ll take me. Anyway, thank you for visiting my blog in a daily basis. It’s not goodbye, I just don’t think I can update this as much as I should but I will post things I feel is relevant quickly. Anyway, anyoung!

Dirty Eyed Boys finally debuts

August 25, 2009

One Day is really one heck of a group. One Day and Super Junior should really get together on a show. One Junior? Super Day? Kinda reminds of this big japanese pop group. Anyway, a few members from 2pm and 2am got together and formed One Day’s first ‘subgroup’, Dirty Eyed Boys and their first single is a remake of Brown Eyed Girls current hit, ‘Abracadabra’. I honestly think the song can be sing by a boy group. I just wish that One Day didn’t really go too feminine with the song. Well, they have Jo Kwon there. What do you expect? I hope in the future 2pm will really make a masculine version of ‘Abracadabra’.

Just a side note, been noticing Chansung for a while. He can be the mascot of the group. I mean the cover. The kid has spunk. He can compete with Khun’s cuteness and Jaebeom’s masculinity as the groups image.

Online Charts for the 4th week of August

August 25, 2009

Just got home I really miss this city. My parents ask me to help my cousin move to NYC. His brother was suppose to do it but he got accepted in some company. So being the kind person that I am, I helped. Well, been so long since I’ve been in New York. I thought I would miss much but it seems that nothing much happened this past few days because of the recent death of a former president. Anyway here’s the online charts for the 4th week of August.

I’m a little surprise that 2pm has been climbing the charts considering they have finished the promotions of their previous album. Maybe there’s something going on. Super Junior is also still in yesasia’s chart. The Wonder Girls Trilogy also went up in yesasia. Maybe they are from fans who have just been wonderized by ‘Nobody’.

YG Entertainment is in a roll. After 2NE1’s domination, the flame is then pass to G-Dragon. I can’t believe how many of his songs are in the top ten of online charts. I’ll try to listen to the entire album one of these days. I hope it’s good.
