Mid-Year Online Charts Monthly Recap

July 2, 2012

Here are the songs that topped the charts in each month. I only included 3 because monkey3 and cyworld is no longer available for overseas viewing. Ollehmusic (formerly Dosirak) archives only started from March of this year. Bugs on the other hand has no monthly chart. Anyway, Melon, Mnet and Soribada are the charts that matter anyway. Well, that and cyworld.

Melon
[January] T-ara (Lovey-Dovey)
[February] Lyn (Back in Time)
[March] Big Bang (Blue)
[April] Busker Busker (Cherry Blossom Ending)
[May] SNSD – Taetiseo (Twinkle)
[June] Wonder Girls (Like This)

Mnet
[January] T-ara (Lovey-Dovey)
[February] Lyn (Back in Time)
[March] Big Bang (Fantastic Baby)
[April] Busker Busker (Cherry Blossom Ending)
[May] SNSD – Taetiseo (Twinkle)
[June] Wonder Girls (Like This)

Soribada
[January] T-ara (Lovey-Dovey)
[February] Davichi (Will Think of You)
[March] Big Bang (Blue)
[April] Busker Busker (Cherry Blossom Ending)
[May] Baek Ji Young (Voice)
[June] Wonder Girls (Like This)

Its pretty much the same artists winning in all 3 charts for the early part of 2012 aside for the month of February and May. Lyn wasn’t available to hold her ground in Soribada and succumb to 2nd place behind Davichi. The same thing in the month of May. Taetiseo topped Melon and Mnet but finished only 2nd in Soribada behind Baek Ji Young.

By the way, I included the link to the monthly charts so you can see it for yourself. The soribada chart has only one link for all monthly charts so I just put in below.

ShockedFan.wordpress.com just celebrated its 3rd year last Saturday

July 2, 2012

My first post was in the 30th of June in the year 2009. I’m thinking of doing a special post like what I did in the previous years. I think people like/hate those posts because its insightful and much different from what they read in allkpop.

Anyway, I’ll be doing something that’s very close to my heart, dancing. In the next few days, await for my “Top 10 KPOP dance group”. I’ll list 10 “idol groups” of what I think I think excels the most in dancing. You’re welcome to give your input in the comment section. 10th placer will be posted this weekend.

Shocked Fans rant

July 12, 2011

Well, as you guys all knew. I ended my Kpop fanaticism a year ago. But to be honest, I couldn’t. I’m still into Kpop but since I’m working now, I can only follow one. And I followed INFINITE. The group I think actually will be one of the greatest as I said in my previous posts. Just give them the chance and opportunity. They can be the one to lead the Hallyu wave in the world. Them and SHINee.

Saying that, I have been active in fan forums. Its there that I get details on the boys. Right now, I’m a member of NoLimitInfinite and OverZero. Well I used to be in OverZero. Do correct me if I’m wrong but you’re allowed to give criticism in forums right? I was like that in OverZero and the nasty Administrators block me for being like that.

If you’re wondering what I said, here’s my message. My last 5 messages.

I think this is a bit of an exaggeration. With the difficulty of their routine, they need more than 4 hours a day of rest.

I really don’t like this set up for forums. I can’t find my way around. Why are the news article not arrange by dates? I’m trying to look for news on their Japan debut but the dates gets me confuse.

Again, I wished there was a group photo.

There should have at least a group photo. Anyways….

Please do tell me if any of these messages is worth me banning because I don’t know why it should be? Or maybe I should reflect on myself? Do they want to read only, “Oppa, you’re the best.”, “They’re so underappreciated”, “They’re so in sync.”, and “They’re so handsome.”? I’m 23 years old. I can’t be like that. Not that I ever was.

I’m upset yes but more of disappointed that INSPIRITS have become these kind of fans. Its this same reason that I never got into SNSD. SONEs are just too much to handle. And now, it seems like INSPIRITS are heading on that direction. I dread the day that INFINITE performs on Dream Concert and have everyone in the crowd in silence.

A few days ago there was a war supposedly between two subbing teams of INFINITE that started when one of the members of a subbing team mock the efficiency of the other subbing team. I’m not going into details of that. You can find it in tumblr. I’m pointing out the obvious rise of negativity in the fandom. I Love INFINITE. I really do. But those who call them fans would really drive anyone away.

There’s a big difference between negativity and criticism. The things I posted, those were criticisms. The thing that OverZero did to me, that was negativity. That was plain cruel. I’m really really upset right now. It was never like this when I was an active fan in VIP, WonderFuls, and Cassiopeia. No one was ever driven away. As I said, since I’m working now, I can only follow one group. And it seems like I followed the wrong one.

INFINITE, I do hope you succeed. With all my heart, I really do. And I hope you’ll gain mature fans. Fans that would be open minded and are TRUE. This is the end I guess.
