And the MAMA goes to…

November 22, 2009

Here are the winners in last night’s Mnet Asian Music Awards. I’ll add some comments to those awards I feel someone else should have won them.

Director of Music Video Award: Hong Won Ki

Music Portal Mnet Award: 2NE1

Mobile Popularity Award: Super Junior

Overseas Viewer Award: Super Junior

CGV Popularity Award: Super Junior (Did not attend)

Best New Male Artist: Supremes -> To be honest, I don’t know who these Supremes are. I would have thought MBLAQ or BEAST would win this award but since they just debut, it would be very suspicious if one of them did actually win “Best New Male Artist”.

Best New Female Artist: 2NE1 -> I think this is a landslide win for 2NE1. None of the other rookie female groups have achieved even half of what 2NE1 has received this year.

Best Trot Award: Hong Jin Yong’s Love Battery

Best Dance: Kara’s Honey -> This was really such a surprise considering the song isn’t really that danceable. 2pm’s “Again and Again” or Super Junior’s “Sorry, Sorry” would be a better suit for this award.

Best OST Award: SS501’s Because I’m Stupid for Boys Over Flowers -> I think this is the only OST song that really made some noise this year. I think. Do correct me if I’m wrong.

Best Mixed Gender Group: 8Eight

Best Hip Hop Artist: Leessang

Best Rock Song: Boowhal’s Remembering

Asian Recommend: AKB48

Best House/Electronic: Brown Eyed Girls Abracadabra

Best R&B/Ballad Song: Kim Tae Woo’s Love Rain -> I’m sorry to Kim Tae Woo and GOD fans but I think 2am’s “Confession of a Friend” should have got this. Maybe the Mnet people considered the album sales but quality-wise, I honestly think 2am should have won this award.

Best Representative for Asia: Dong Bang Shin Ki -> Such a weird award.

Best Male Solo Artist: Drunken Tiger

Best Female Solo Artist: Baek Ji Young -> Seems like Baek Ji Young and the rest of Korea has finally moved on from her controversy. I wonder if Ivy can do it too.

Best Asian Composer: JYP

Best MV: 2NE1’s Fire

Best Female Group: Brown Eyed Girls -> Other say that it should be SNSD but I think this award rightfully should go to 2NE1, no offense to BEG. Though SNSD have that 9week-win title with “Gee”, we should remember that at that time, they were competing against no one. I can’t help but compare SNSD with WG. WG’s “So Hot” and “Nobody” success were almost similar and to think that they were competing against DBSK and Big Bang at the time. SNSD however had a mediocre success in music programs with “Genie”. 2NE1 were part of the success of “Lollipop” and their singles, “Fire” and “I Don’t Care”, became such a success.

Best Male Group: 2PM -> I have read a lot of Kpop blogs that are contesting this win and stated that Super Junior should have won. I honestly feel that 2pm deserves this win. Their presence in the Kpop scene the entire year really made an impact. Their beastly image made male and female Kpop fans appreciate them. I’m sorry to SuJu fans but after Super Junior’s album promotions ended, they were really invisible. Also remember, a group’s success does not depend on how many fans they have but how many non-fans and music lovers appreciate the groups’ songs. Super Junior fans compose mostly of teenage girls while 2pm’s fans are more diverse with male and female fans almost the same number and age varies from adolescent to people in their 50s. Boohwal for example.

And now for the Daesang. Last year, Wonder Girls won Song of the Year with “Nobody”, DBSK won album of the year with “Mirotic”, and Big Bang won artist of the year.

Best Album: G-Dragon’s Heartbreaker -> With the plagiarism issue aside, “Heartbreaker is really the album to beat sales-wise and quality-wise.

Best Song: 2NE1’s I Don’t Care -> This song is still stuck in my head. With it’s catchiness, I do think that they do deserve this title.

Artist of the Year: 2PM -> Everyone was surprise when these guys came out and showed an image far from the norm. I think no other artists made an impact this year as much as these guys have. With songs topping charts and with the controversy hovering over them, all eyes are on 2pm.

September 18, 2009

G Dragon received his 2nd win in M Countdown last Thursday. One more for a Triple Crown. I think G-Dragon should start changing his performance. It’s kinda getting boring.

There’s isn’t any songs released that could compare to ‘Heartbreaker’.

Here’s the complete chart.

Online Charts for the 2nd week of September

September 8, 2009

As excpected, G Dragon once again came on top on all the charts on my list except for the cyworld which went to 2pm’s ‘You Might Come Back’. The cyworld chart on the list is daily unlike the rest which are weekly. I think 2pm got number one for the day in cyworld because of Jaebeom’s departure. I really am saddened by his departure but what can we do? Netizens are just too much. Let’s just hope his pain will go away.

[Chart] Music Bank 2009/09/04

September 7, 2009

G-Dragon once again won in Music Bank. It’s his second win in the show. I wonder how long his win will last. We’ve heard the album, we know the artist. I honestly feel it would be very hard for anybody to knock him down anytime soon. No artist active now or will comeback even have a chance in beating this kid. Well, there’s 2NE1, but I don’t think their other songs are good enough to beat ‘Heartbreaker’.

M Countdown and Inkigayo has a maximum win of three while Music Bank doesn’t have any. I’m very confident that G-Dragon will get Triple Crown in M Countdown and Inkigayo for ‘Heartbreaker’. But I’m unsure how long he’ll win in Music Bank. The record right now is SNSD’s ‘Gee’ with 9 weeks. I think he have a chance. He did beat SNSD’s points in Music Bank. ‘Genie’ I think got 17000+ votes. Last Friday, ‘Heatbreaker’ got a total of 21322 votes. It’s just amazing. Wait for my weekly online chart list. As far as I can remember, his number of sales are already almost the same with ‘Gee’ and ‘Nobody’.

01 G-Dragon – Heartbreaker
02 Brown Eyed Girls – Abracadabra
03 2NE1 – I Don’t Care
04 Baek Ji Young – Ear Candy
05 Kara – Wanna
06 SNSD – Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)
07 T-ara – Lies
08 FT Island – I Hope
09 Davichi – Hot Stuff
10 MC Mong – Indian Boy
11 Kara – Mister
12 Mighty Mouth – Love Class
13 Lee Seung Gi – Will You Marry Me
14 G-Dragon – A Boy
15 2PM – I Hate You
16 4minute – HOT ISSUE
17 Jewelry – Strong Girl
18 Boohwal – Thought
19 Bada – Mad
20 Drunken Tiger – True Romance

[Chart] M Countdown 2009/09/03

September 5, 2009

Brown Eyed Girls won their second win in M Countdown last Sept 3. One more and they’ll have a triple crown win. I don’t know if foreigners can vote but from what I see in youtube and other video sharing sites, Abracadabra is more famous overseas. My friends over here are even doing the hip swaying thing. But who can blame them, Abracadabra has this beat and dance that can get anybody hooked. But it seems that Koreans are not that fond of Abracadabra. BEG’s album sales are not as high as I thought they would be. Maybe Koreans are more into cute things like what Kara and SNSD has been doing.

I’m still surprise that G-Dragon’s Heartbreaker is not on the chart. Maybe next week. I hope he’s not ban in mnet like SNSD and the rest of SM Entertainment. Anyway, here’s the September 3 M Countdown chart.

I also noticed the number of new entries. FT Island and MC Mong are no longer on the chart.

01 Brown Eyed Girls – Abracadabra
02 Kara – Wanna
03 Baek Ji Young – Ear Candy
04 Drunken Tiger – Monster (Korean Ver.)
05 Bada – Mad
06 Davichi – Hot Stuff
07 T-ara – Lies
08 Boohwal – Thought
09 Cool – See Again Again
10 Mighty Mouth – Love Class
11 Hong Kyung Min – She Goes
12 Hwayobi – Rose
13 Roora – Going Going
14 Park Hye Kyung – High Heels
15 Loveholics – Butterfly
16 Supreme Team – Supermagic
17 After School – Half
18 Yoon Eun Hye – Dash Girl
19 김진표 – Tell Me
20 Navi – Wasteful Tears

Here’s Brown Eyed Girls performance of Abracadabra. Kudos to Mnet, their equipment has improved. Well, relatively. But it’s still far from the ones the other music shows use.
