December 21, 2010

Wow, my last online chart of the month post. Only 10 more days and it’s goodbye Kpop for me. Anyway, here are Gaon’s chart for the month of November of the year 2010. Congratulations to Heo Guk. Novemeber was truly his month. Still can’t believe he beat 2AM and SNSD.

01 Heo Gak – Always
02 Baek Ji Young – That Woman
03 2AM – You Wouldn’t Answer My Calls
04 SNSD – Hoot
05 Taeyeon & The One – Like A Star
06 Kara – Jumping
07 B2ST – Beautiful
08 Kang Seung Yoon feat. Swings – By Instinct
09 Psy – Right Now
10 Brown Eyed Soul – If It’s the Same
11 Jang Jae In – 가로수 그늘 아래 서면
12 2AM – Like Crazy
13 Supreme Team – Then Then Then
14 Orange Caramel – Aing♡

16 T-ara – Why Are You Being Like This?
17 Gummy – I Love You Even If I Die
18 John Park – In the Rain
19 SG Wannabe – Sunflower
20 Miss A – Breathe

I’m very surprise that Baek Ji Young is doing so well last November. I never felt the impact of her song in the public. Well, maybe it’s one of those songs that is popular but music shows never took notice of it. JYJ and Hot Potato’s Confession is an example.

[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
02 Baek Ji Young – That Woman
03 2AM – You wouldn’t Answer My Calls
04 B2ST – Beautiful
05 Heo Gak – Happy Me
06 4Men – Hello!
07 Kang Seung Yoon feat. Swings – By Instinct
08 SNSD – Hoot
09 Jang Jae In – 가로수 그늘 아래 서면
10 Brown Eyed Soul – If It Were the Same
11 San E – Lovesick
12 Supreme Team feat. Young Jun – Then Then Then
13 Taeyeon & The One – Like A Star
14 2NE1 – Slow
15 Far*East Movement – Like A G6 (Feat. The Cataracs & Dev)
16 Gummy – I Love You Even If I Die
17 Park Boram – If Time Goes
18 Gummy & Bobby Kim – Love Recipe
19 SG Wannabe – Sunflower
20 Heo Gak – Running In The SKy

Taeyeon is at it again

June 25, 2010

In the recent episode of Music Bank, the show did their mid-year ranking. SNSD was fortunate to win the said mid-year chart. But in Taeyeon’s thank you speech, she said, “…I hope Music Bank can provide a good environment for artists…”. Netizens have been all over this statement. Some hate it and some are just ok with it. To me, I think she shouldn’t have said that.

Taeyeon should have learned from her past mistakes already that her words can hurt. If she’s dissatisfied with what happened, why can’t she talk about it with the PD behind the camera. Or better, keep it to herself. Things like this happens. Considering the episode have every popular acts in Korea today, she should have actually be thankful that the show entrusted her with this special number.

We all know how protective SONEs are with SNSD. How does she think her fans will react to this? How will her fans react to Music Bank? She’s not a kid anymore. And although she’s disappointed, she should have just moved on. SNSD is already being treated the best among the idol groups as T-ara’s Soyeon have mentioned. Taeyeon should have just been thankful.

January 19, 2010

This is the only awards list that Wonder Girls got ahead of Big Bang. It usually the guys getting more than the girls. Cyworld awarded the Wonder Girls 3 Song of the Month while Big Bang with 2 only. I was actually surprise that Wonder Girls got the award in September cause “Nobody” was released almost the end of the month. This really shows how much “Nobody” was hyped.

#19 2008 January – HaHa (You Are My Destiny)
#20 2008 February – Taeyeon (If)

#03 2006 September – MC the Max ( To Find Love)
#02 2006 August – Turtles (Airplane)
#01 2006 July – Brown Eyed Girls (Hold the Line)

Idol groups seems to be not that popular in the early years of this monthly award. Soloist have dominated the award at the beginning but idol groups looks like they’ll dominate from now on.

The top two idol groups who have won the award the most are Wonder Bang. Big Bang has won 5 times, twice with “Lies”, 7 if you’ll include their collaboration with 2NE1 in “Lollipop” and G-Dragon’s “Heartbreaker”. Wonder Girls won 4 times with their songs “Tell Me”, “So Hot” and “Nobody”, twice in Nobody. Brown Eyed Girls and 2NE1 share the bronze medal with 2 wins each. 2NE1 suppose to have three but Lollipop’s success was really due to Big Bang’s popularity. I think the recognition should be with Big Bang. Also, Park Bom’s win is individual so I don’t think the credit should go to the group. SNSD and SS501 are bringing up the rear with one win each. Taeyeon won an award too but it’s by herself so I feel SNSD did not win that.

Big Bang – 5 (7)
Wonder Girls – 4
Brown Eyed Girls – 2
2NE1 – 2 (4)
SNSD – 1 (2)
SS501 – 1
