[Chart] Cyworld Song of the Month: 2010 November

December 2, 2010

Mnet’s Superstar K winner Heo Gak apparently made an impact in Korea. Three songs from this guy made it to the Top 20 of the November 2010 chart of Cyworld. Don’t really know this guy but congrats still. Topping Cyworld is no piece of cake.

After the Bugs 2010 Top 100 was released a few days ago, I’ve been reading a lot of comments stating certain online charts are more reliable and some are garbage. And that music shows are such a big deal. Just to clear the misunderstanding of these people that are obviously new to Kpop, the most reliable online chart out there is Cyworld. If a song top Cyworld, you can guarantee that the song is popular in the nation of Korea.

Music shows are unreliable because it can be rigged by fans. As I’ve always been saying in my posts, music shows rely so heavily on album sales. And it is a known fact, though undocumented, that idol fans, especially those included in large fan group, buys a number of the same album week after week to get their idols on top. You might say it’s normal but we’re talking about here popularity. It might be popular to the fan club but in the nation, it’s a not. A delusion made by some hard core fans. An example that happened this year is Super Junior. I apologize to ELFS, nothing against them. Bonamana won numerous music show awards during it’s promotion but if you go to Korea, it’s not really that known.

So to new Kpop fans, be humble and logical. Winning in Music Bank isn’t really a big deal. Again, be humble. And if you want to know what songs are a hit, go to cyworld. Be very scared if your idols are winning in music bank but doesn’t even chart in cyworld. Cough 2pm cough. I apologize for this brutal honesty. But what I stated is the truth.

01 Heo Gak – Always

[Chart] Cyworld Song of the Month: 2010 October

November 2, 2010

Cyworld proclaims Supreme Team number 1 for the month of October. I’m not really familiar with Supreme Team so I don’t really know what to say. Like the song though, but not really crazy about it.

Anyway there few things I noticed in this month’s Cyworld Song of the Month. For one thing, 2AM is already in the Top 20 though they just recently released their songs. Not really surprising though. 2 Years ago, Wonder Girls released “Nobody” a week before the end of September and yet they won September’s Song of the Month.

Also, 2PM is nowhere to be seen in the charts. Their “I’ll Be Back” song is ranked 31 on October. And I don’t think it would go higher since 2AM and SNSD will start dominating the charts soon. Actually, they have already. Weird though, cause 2PM won a lot of Music Show awards and not just Music Bank. You’d think at least they should be on the Top 20. I’ll be scared if I’m 2PM. This is their lowest ranking ever since they became popular with Again and Again. Miss A and the newly released songs from SNSD and 2AM even ranked higher than them.

Lastly, the elderly of Family Outing is still charting. I love Family Outing. The original one. And I love the members. Yoon Jong Shin, Fighting!

01 Supreme Team feat. Young Jun – Then Then Then
02 Kang Seung Yoon feat. Swings – 본능적으로
03 Gummy – I Love You Even If I Die
04 Sung Si Kyung & IU – It’s You
05 Miss A – Breathe
06 Far*East Movement – Like A G6 (Feat. The Cataracs & Dev)
07 2NE1 – Go Away
08 Gain – Irreversible
09 SHINee – Hello
10 Yolanda Be Cool, D Cup – We No Speak Americano (Radio Edit)
11 Yoon Jong Shin (Rap Feat. Swings) – 본능적으로
12 BEAST – Breath
13 Im Jung Hee – It Can’t Be Real
14 2AM – You wouldn’t Answer My Calls
15 Yang Jung Seung – Stars of the Night
16 Zia & 4Men – Crying, Calling
17 2NE1 – Can’t Nobody
18 Seo Young Eun – Melting Heart
19 2NE1 – Slow
20 Hwayobi – Girl Like Me

[Chart] Cyworld Song of the Month: 2010 September

October 6, 2010

2NE1 is the perfect example of a hit artist. Not just online but also offline, their songs are being received well. They clearly dominated the month of September. I know 2NE1 haters will hate to accept it but 2NE1 comeback is the best this year.

Now that 2NE1 has maxed out their wins, wonder who will take over the charts. Hmmm.

01 2NE1 – Go Away
02 Supreme Team – Why
03 2NE1 – Slow
04 2NE1 – Can’t Nobody
05 4Men – U
06 FT Island – Love Love Love

[Chart] Cyworld Song of the Month: 2010 August

September 1, 2010

Like what I tweeted last night, Homme nabs the Cyworld Song of the Month for the month of August. Changmin is actually the 3rd 2am member to have a song as Cyworld Song of the Month. First was Jo Kwon with his duet with Gain’s “We Fell In Love”. Then last June, Seulong won one with his duet with IU, “Nagging”. Let’s see if Jinwoon could also win one.

As I said in my previous posts, if you want to know what songs are popular in Korea, go to online charts. Online charts can’t easily be controlled by fans. A person can buy 5-10 albums but that person can only listen to the song one at a time. And of all the online charts, I highly recommend Cyworld. Here’s a recap of the winners so far this year.

January: Gain & Kwon – We Fell in Love
February: 2am – Can’t Let You Go, Even If I Die
March: MC Mong & Seo In Young – Bubble Love
April: Super Junior’s Yesung – It Has To Be You
May: Hot Potato – Confession
June: IU and 2AM Seulong – Nagging
July: Miss A – Bad Girl Good Girl
August: Homme (Changmin & Lee Hyun) – I Was Able to Eat Well

If you noticed, SHINee, SNSD, and Super Junior hasn’t won anything this year though their songs are winning in Music Bank. Their winning because of album sales. Everyone actually knows this, most SM fans buy more than they need just for their idols to win in Music Bank. Yes, just for the show. This should be an eye-opening and humbling information to some close-minded SONEs, ELFs, and SHINee World.

These wins by 2AM is actually a big deal. Its really putting their name up there. Honestly, I think they’re the biggest threat so far, for artist the year. I mean they are really everywhere. All of the songs they have released this year may not have been received well in terms of sales in comparison SNSD, 2PM, & Super Junior, but these songs are really popular. To be honest, I think they already surpassed 2pm in terms of success.

But all these are just mere speculations. Let’s see if they will actually win artist of the year.

01 Homme (Changmin & Lee Hyun) – I Was Able to Eat Well
02 DJ Doc – I’m A Guy Like This
03 Davichi – From Me To You
04 Lee Seun Gi – Losing My Mind
05 DJ Doc – The Letter I Couldn’t Send
06 Brown Eyed Soul – Nothing Better
07 Eminem feat. Rihanna – Love the Way You Lie
08 Seo In Kook – My Baby U
09 4men – U
10 Supreme Team feat. Soulman – 너 때문이야
11 BoA – Hurricane Venus
12 Narsha – I’m In Love
13 Lee Seung Chul – No Such People
14 IU and Yoo Seungho – I believe in Love
15 Park Hyosin – I Love You
16 G.NA with Rain – If You Want A Lover
17 Brave Brothers & Jay Park – I Want to Cry
18 Miss A – Bad Girl Good Girl
19 Zia – Laughter
20 Mad Soul Child – Dear

[Chart] Cyworld Song of the Month: 2010 June

July 9, 2010

IU and Seulong’s duet song “Nagging” seems to be the craze in Korea now. After winning Music Bank, they solidify their popularity by winning June’s “Cyworld Song of the Month”. As you all know by now, “Cyworld Song of the Month” is the hardest online chart to topped. It doesn’t rely heavily on sales but also the frequency of the song played. So its a feat to top Cyworld.

2AM is on a roll this year. January has Kwon winning the same award with Gain followed by the entire 2AM in February with “Can’t Let You Go Even If I Die”. And now Seulong. Technically this is 2AM’s third “Cyworld Song of the Month”. The group might be in contention for artist of the year. Yes, their albums are not doing as well as SNSD and Super Junior, but their songs seems to be way popular to the general public. Anyway, congrats again to IU and Suulong. Here’s the rest of the chart.

01 IU and 2AM Seulong – Nagging
02 MC Mong feat. Mellow – Sick Enough to Die
03 Seo In Young – Love is Bitter, Pain is Calling
04 C.N.Blue – Love Light

06 C.N.Blue – LOVE
07 Hwayobi – Bye Bye Bye
08 Lyn – Honey Baby Love
09 美 – 어디에 (Piano Version)
10 DECEMBER – Tears in Heaven
11 Supreme Team – Bang Bang Bang
12 Hot Potato – Confession
13 Nieve and Cook – Chronic Intoxication (Ryoko Anan Natsu No Yuki Remix)

June 6, 2010

Unlike other online charts, Cyworld releases their charts every month. So here you go. This will only be the monthly chart that I will post from now on. Posting the weekly charts and then the monthly online charts are too much work. I am only one person. But if you are interested to know, the links to all online charts that I’m posting are on my blogroll. The sites are in Korean but it’s easy to go around.

Anyway, Hot Potato’s Confession reigned supreme the entire month of May. The song is okay. It has a John Mayer sound to it. It’s great that other artists are getting much needed recognition aside for the usual idol group.
