Are SNSD, SS501 and Big Bang fans delusional?October 21, 2009
Recently, Brown Eyed Girls and G-Dragon won in the Cyworld Digital Music Award for the song of the month in August and September respectively. I honestly don’t know how prestigious this award is but I want to think that it is so because Kpop artists actually give time to this award-giving body and they do perform live. Well the performances that I’ve seen were live.
Anyway, I decided to write this article because someone e-mailed me a question regarding the song of the month of Cyworld. The said netizen was trying to make an outline or at least a list of Cyworld song of the month winners. Like everybody else our first information, we should not be because of it’s lack of credibility, would be wikipedia.
Here are the winners that I gathered. It’s a bit lacking because I couldn’t find the rest. Do comment if you know any winners plus state your source.

As you can see, SNSD and SS501 both claim that they were song of the month last February of this year. Also, SNSD and Big Bang also claim that they were the song of the month winner last August of 2007. I don’t know what to believe so I tried searching vids in youtube regarding the Cyworld Award in those months. And finally I found a vid that says that SS501 is the song of a month winner for the month of February this year. Here’s the vid.
It’s says in the vid that they won the 32nd Cyworld Song of the Month Award. It never said that they won the month of February but if you count back 32nd month is February. According to sources, 39th month is September.
With regards to Big Bang and SNSD both claiming the August of 2007 as their month, I can’t find any solid evidences to support or a abolish their claims. As you can see in the list above, there are already 39 Cyworld Monthly Awards but it seems that awardees per month aren’t well recorded. I would really like it if an SNSD or Big Bang fan will comment on this just to make it clear who really won. Fans are publicizing false achievements which isn’t really that nice.
But what we know right now is that SNSD did not win the song of the month last February 2009. We should give credits when credit is due. SS501 did work hard.
