[Chart] Music Bank 2010/05/28

June 2, 2010

Super Junior has won yet again in the latest K-chart in Music Bank. They were up against the Wonder Girls. The win was a no surprise to me. Didn’t I tell you that Music Bank is all about album sales? Fans have been controlling Music Bank by album sales. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the chart, here’s how Music Bank determines their winner.

Digital sound source chart score (60%)
Viewer preference (10%)
Album Sales (10%)
Broadcasting number of times score (20%)

Album Sales maybe just a mere 10% but as I said it is the easiest to control if you have fans that massive. We all know by now that Korean fans are die hard fans and will go to lengths to glorify their idols. Some went even to the extent to buy 2-3 albums a week (fan account only, I have no means to prove this but everyone knows this fact).

I’m not saying that Super Junior doesn’t deserve the award. I honestly like the song. I for one is puzzled why it’s not popular online. Even in cyworld. It’s just that Music Bank doesn’t tell which song is really popular but what song is selling the most. If you go back on my Music Bank and Online charts posts, those songs that sell the most, though not popular, wins in the show. SNSD’s “Oh!” prolonged their win. 3 of their 5 Music Bank wins are because of album sales

Starting from this episode, I will break down the points of the contenders in the number 1 spot. Anyway, congrats to Super Junior and to their adoring ELFs. I predict another SUJU win. I think Wonder Girls will start to drop in charts now their not in Korea anymore.
