Online Streaming Link

December 29, 2010

I watch music shows most of the time in kpopflash.net. They air everything that has to do with Kpop. Well, not everything actually. But you can guarantee that this link will be able to help you watch music shows (M! Countdown, Music Bank, Music Core, and Inkigayo). And according to my sources, they will also air the Gayo Festivals. So enjoy! Another thing I will leave you guys.

I’ll try to update the links on my blogroll but I won’t promise anything. Though it’s vacation. I do have a lot of things to do.

20 Most Popular Kpop Artist in Facebook

December 17, 2010

As of Dec 17, here are the top 20 Korean artist in Facebook. I provided the link for reference.

01.) Super Junior – 1,483,914 link
02.) Big Bang – 624,207 link
03.) 2NE1 – 531,161 link
04.) Wonder Girls – 513,586 link
05.) 2PM – 513,525 link
06.) U-Kiss – 415,559 link
07.) Rain – 285,913 link
08.) BoA – 265,833 link
09.) SHINee – 258,445 link
10.) SS501 – 254,475 link
11.) SNSD – 244,945 link
12.) Super Junior M – 225,545 link
13.) T-ara – 207,880 link
14.) MBLAQ – 198,795 link
15.) 2AM – 167,145 link
16.) DBSK – 137,206 link
17.) After School – 107,475 link
18.) Brown Eyed Girls – 66,487 link
19.) 4Minute – 51,164 link
20.) Kara – 46,184 link

Seeing the ranking, it’s a bit surprising that the artist that are dominating Korea right now, didn’t even made it to the top 10. SNSD and 2AM are way down on the chart. I’m especially surprise that SNSD is that low. I mean they sell so much album but yet they don’t have that much fans overseas. Hmm. So SNSD fans does buy more than 1 album to provide a win for them in music shows. Also, I’m surprise that U-Kiss is so high in the ranking and DBSK is so low. Maybe this does prove that U-Kiss is more popular outside Korea. Just like Supernova.

[EDIT]
I apologize, I did not see that Super Junior fan page.

Anyway, congrats to Super Junior for being the most popular Korean artist on Facebook. This is a big accomplishment since Facebook is a worldwide social networking site unlike Daum. Feel free to comment if there’s any inconsistencies with what I wrote or if I have forgotten an artist.

[EDIT]
I checked and double checked and tripled checked the information above after I had that mistake on Super Junior. I am confident that at Dec 17, these are the most popular facebook groups of the artist that was mentioned. As the days goes by, these FB page will grow and I can’t keep updating this post.

2010 Golden Disk Awards

December 10, 2010

The 25th Golden Disk Awards was held last night at the Hwajeong Gym in Koryeo University, South Korea. The winners are as follows

Disk Bonsang Daesang – SNSD (Oh!)
Digital Music Daesang – 2AM (Can’t Let You Go Even If I Die)

Disk Bonsang
– DJ Doc (I’m This Type of Person)
– SHINee (Lucifer)
– SNSD (Oh!)
– Super Junior (BONAMANA)
– BoA (Hurricane Venus)

Digital Music Bonsang
– 2AM (Can’t Let You Go Even If I Die)
– IU (Nagging)
– miss A (Bad Girl Good Girl)
– CNBLUE (I’m A Loner)
– Lee Seung Gi (Love Taught Me To Drink)

Hip-Hop Award – Supreme Team
Rock Award – F.T. Island

Rookie Award:
– B2ST
– SECRET
– SISTAR

Popularity Award
– SNSD
– SHINee

Asian Popularity Award – Super Junior
Producer Award – Hong Seung Sung (Cube Entertainment)
Lifetime Achievement Award – Park Chun Seo

Golden Disk Awards is deemed as South Korea’s version of the prestigious Grammy’s. But honestly, I don’t think winning in GDA is an honor. I don’t know. If you look at it, the award show is more of summing an artist entire sales for the year. So basically, the quality of the album released is not a factor. It’s all about the quantity of the album that was sold. Music Bank anyone? BoA and Super Junior won Disk Bonsang, but the songs they have released this year wasn’t even THAT popular. I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me.

Also, I don’t think the award is given to the right people. Though SNSD already won Disk Bonsang, they should have also won Digital Bonsang. Also, C.N.Blue and Miss A should have won rookies of the year along with Sistar. Some people in allkpop commented that if an artist won in one category, they are excluded in winning the other one. But I don’t still get the exclusion. Give credit if they deserve it.

Seoul Music in my opinion is the award to look out for. It balances quality and quantity.

As you can see, every song that 2AM has released (well of course excluding the recently released) is in the top 100. This is what I’ve been saying. 2AM is the busiest group of 2010. They are just everywhere this year. And given that, I think they will win Artist of the Year at least one of the year-end awards.

10 Most Popular Kpop Artist in Youtube

October 22, 2010

I went to Youtube to watch some Kpop vids for my farewell project when I suddenly thought of looking for the most popular Kpop Vids on Youtube. Here are the 10 Most Popular Artist according to Youtube. I just took the most viewed from each artist.

[EDIT]
01.) Wonder Girls – Nobody (41,739,921 views)
02.) SNSD – Gee (26,230,725 views)
03.) Big Bang feat. 2NE1 – Lollipop (19,613,720 views)
04.) Super Junior – Sorry Sorry (17,718,471 views)
05.) 2NE1 – Fire (14,367,223 views)
06.) SHINee – Ring Ding Dong (13,625,120 views)
07.) 2pm – Again and Again (5,659,205 views)
08.) B2ST – Bad Girl (4,612,693 views)
09.) BoA – Energetic (4,190,275 views)
10.) DBSK – Mirotic (4,043,483 views)

It seems like the Nobody fever has not yet subsided. That’s a big gap to the 2nd place SNSD. I think WOnder Girls’ Nobody will be safe up there for a long time. Though “Gee” is popular all over Asia, “Nobody” is popular all over the world. “Nobody” can be pulled down, but I don’t think “Gee” has anything left to get its view that high considering “Nobody” is still generating interest.
