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.

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.

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.

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 Talented Idol Groups: Eliminated – B2ST and U-Kiss

November 26, 2010

Here I am again for my farewell project. December is around the corner so I better speed up. As I promised, on the 1st of December I’ll post the 10th Most Talented Group. I have to eliminate four more to get my “10 Most Talented Idol Groups”. Looking at my pro-con list, B2ST and U-Kiss is not part of the elite 10. I’m actually surprise that both went this far but I can’t deny the numbers.

B2ST is first known as a group of rejects. Meaning there are members that almost made it as members of currently popular groups like 2pm and Big Bang. But as time goes by, they have made a name for themselves. The reason for their elimination is vocals and stage performance. As all of you know by now, I’m a dancer. I know and see what’s wrong in any routine, and what’s wrong with B2ST is their lack of harmony. Individually, they can dance, but the problem is that they don’t gel together. Watch their performances, someone is always half a second late. Also, they seem to not care about the details. My friends and I always do this “leg test” when judging our routine. Watch B2ST performances and take an extra effort in their legs. The angles and distance is all over the place. That means they need more practice. Details is important when your routine is fast. I mentioned this before, I really like their “Shock” choreography but they didn’t really deliver. Their timing is really off. I think if SHINee, Infinite or MBLAQ was given that song, it would have work.

Now with their vocals. I’m not saying their not in tune. But like their dancing, I think their voices doesn’t gel together. It’s actually weird. It’s like they have different styles and no one wants to back down to make the song work. Also, is it me or none of them have that voice. I don’t know that exact term. I think firm. I’m saying quality of voice. Reaching the notes is one thing but having a firm voice is another. I hope I’m saying it right. Compare the voices of MBLAQ’s Seungho, GO, SHINee’s JongHyun, Onew, Infinite’s WooHyun, Sunnggyu and U-Kiss’ Kevin, SooHyun to the vocalist of B2ST. The other groups’ vocalist is firm and full. I hope you get what I’m trying to say. I’m weak in terminology. I don’t remember the exact word so I hope you get what I mean. Technically, B2ST’s elimination is attributed to the lack harmony of their individual talents.

Now with U-Kiss, they’re good actually but not as good as the remaining groups. I know they have been criticize over and over because SooHyun and Kevin technically sings the entire song. But as I said in my previous post, this ranking rates the group’s performance. So having members singing just words doesn’t affect the ranking as long as the performance is good. And with regards to U-Kiss, their performances are good. They just lacks charisma and opportunity. Charisma in a sense that people would want to know then more and opportunity in a sense of having good songs. No one cares about U-Kiss before they released “Man Man Ha Ni”. So maybe if they were given songs like “Lucifer”, people would take interest in them more. This group can do other groups’ songs actually.

2 more are gone and only 12 remains in the hope to be part of the “10 Most Talented Idol Groups”.

01.) 2AM
02.) 2NE1
03.) 2PM
04.) After School
05.) Big Bang
06.) DBSK
07.) f(x)
08.) g.o.d
09.) Infinite
10.) MBLAQ
11.) SHINee
12.) Wonder Girls

I’ll leave you with my favorite performances of B2ST and U-Kiss.

B2ST – Shock

U-Kiss – Bingeul Bingeul
