2008 Music Bank Winners

October 29, 2009

Lately, I’ve been trying to complete the Cyworld Song of the month winners. I never really thought it would be this hard to complete the list. Right now, I know for sure that there are 39 of them. Other than that, I’m lost. Wikipedia isn’t really that much help. Remember the SNSD-SS501-Big Bang dilemma? But it seems SNSD fans caved. August 2007 and February 2009 are no longer in the awards section of the group’s wikipedia page.

I started thinking about music shows. I know Music Bank charts are well documented in kbs.co.kr. I thought maybe the winners of those weeks might be winners of a few Cyworld song of the month. Anyway, here’s what I got. I decided to post the Music Bank winners. Kbs.co.kr only filed as far back as January of 2008. I compiled only the 2008 winners since it’s only the 2007-2008 that I’m having trouble with.

Haha – 2
Brown Eyed Girls – 1
Brown Eyes – 1
Davichi – 1
DBSK – 1
Kim Jong Kook – 1
Lee Seung Gi – 1
Seo Taiji – 1
SNSD – 1
VOS – 1

Looking above, I never thought DBSK just one once. I wasn’t that into Kpop during the November-December of last year. School was giving me too much work. SNSD also won once too. Weird, I read somewhere that SNSD were the hype in early 2008. Well, maybe it was just another one of those false advertising of fans. Never really been a fan of SNSD. To be honest, it’s only with “Gee” that I came to know them.

2008 was really the year of Big Bang and the Wonder Girls apparently. They won so much. It’s kinda nostalgic really. I got into K-pop when the Wonder Girls were performing “So Hot”. And from there, I was day by day amazed by the pop scene in Korea.

Nothing against the winners of this year, I think last year was more exciting and competitive. Well, maybe it’s just me. There were just a lot of artist that are absent this year that I had familiarized Kpop with. Rain, Lee Hyori, DBSK and especially the Wonder Girls and Big Bang. A lot might have happened also this year, but last year had more glamour.
