[Chart] 2010 Cyworld Song of the Months

December 19, 2010

I’ll be gone before Cyworld will post the December song of the Month. So here’s a compilation of the songs that was recognized by the said online chart. Before I proceed, I would like to emphasize to new Kpop fans that Cyworld is the most accurate online chart. It’s not easily manipulated by fanclubs unlike soribada. It’s hard to top Cyworld and if a song does top it, you can guarantee that the said is really popular.

Jo Kwon & Gain – We Fell In Love

2AM – Can’t Let You Go Even if I Die

MC Mong & Seo In Young – Bubble Love

Super Junior Yesung – It Has To Be You

Hot Potato – Confession

IU & 2AM Seulong – Nagging

Miss A – Bad Girl Good Girl

Homme (2AM Changmin & 8eight Lee Hyun) – I Was Able To Eat Well

2NE1 – Go Away

Supreme Team – Then Then Then

Heo Guk – Always

If you sum it all up, it seems like JYP’s artists have made much more an impact. 2AM’s Jo Kwon, Seulong, Changmin all have individual success plus their 2AM song in February.

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.



[Chart] Music Bank 2010/06/25 Mid Year Special

June 28, 2010

Last Friday, Music held their mid-year episode special where they determine the top 20 songs that were received well in the first half of the year. SNSD’s “Oh!” fortunately received the top prize with 2AM’s “Can’t Let You Go Even If You Die” placing 2nd. With Wonder Girls trying to make it in America and 2PM has their controversies, 2AM seems to has now become the face of JYP.

One thing that I noticed in the chart, is that 2PM’s “Heartbeat” is ranked higher than “Without You”. This is something 2PM has to take notice and be taken seriously. The basis for this mid-year chart are data gathered from 2010.01.01 ~ 2010.06.20, as stated in Music Bank’s website. Heartbeat’s promotion ended in the Gayo Festivals. It simply means that the after effect of Heartbeat is received well than the well promoted “Without You”. I said this before, 2PM has not bounce back from the conference thing and it really shows.

In my opinion, JYP needs to make a damage control plan. Though it isn’t that obvious to some people, 2PM’s popularity have been so declining day after day. JYP should do some marketing thing for the boys and make a point not to let Taecyeon take the lead of the group. Taecyeon is hated so much. May it be in twitter, facebook and youtube. If JYP let this continue, I don’t know if 2PM would have anything left by next year. Seriously.

Anyway, going back to the chart, it is SNSD’s time to shine. Congrats to them.

[Chart] Music Bank 2010/06/11

June 14, 2010

Last Friday’s Music Bank gave SS501 its first win for their new song “Love Ya”. As I said before, Music Bank relies heavily in album sales and it was still like that last Friday. If you go back on my latest online chart post, SS501 have topped the hanteo chart for the week.

I haven’t been wrong yet. The winner of the episode always comes from the artist who sells the most in that week. Let’s see on Friday if I’m still right. According to Hanteo, SS501 tops the chart of the week of (2010.06.07 ~ 2010.06.13). So I’m predicting an SS501 win on Friday.

Anyway, congrats to the boys.

[Chart] Music Bank 2010/06/04

June 7, 2010

Wonder Girls and Super Junior once again battled out for first place in the recent episode of Music Bank. Though the points are much closer than last week, Super Junior maintained their #1 spot. And like last week, album sales helped Super Junior a lot.

Let’s admit it. “Bonamana” isn’t really a hit. It won awards only because of album sales. The 3 Music Bank wins of Super Junior was heavily influenced by the sales. But the question is, how long can ELFs keep this up. They can’t keep buying tons of albums week per week. They need the help of Digital Score, Viewer’s Preference and Broadcasting Score. I’m really puzzled why “Bonamana” isn’t popular with Koreans. The song is good but “Bonamana” barely appears on the Top 10 of the online charts.

For Bonamana
Digital score: 2657
Viewer preference score: 1244
Album Sales: 5505
Broadcasting Score: 1778
Total: 11184

For 2 Different Tears
Digital score: 6557

Album Sales: 437
Broadcasting Score: 830
Total: 9658

01 Super Junior – Bonamana
02 Wonder Girls – 2 Different Tears
03 C.N.Blue – LOVE
04 Davichi – Stopping Time
05 Hot Potato – Confession
06 4minute – HuH
07 SS501 – Love Ya
08 MBLAQ – Y
09 f(x) – NU ABO
10 Lyn – Honey Baby Love
11 2pm – Without You
12 Seo In Kook – Love U
13 Yesung – It Has To Be You
14 Kara – Lupin
15 DECEMBER – Tears in Heaven

[Chart] Cyworld Song of the Month: 2010 May

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.

01 Hot Potato – Confession
02 Seo In Kook – Love U
03 Wonder Girls – 2 Different Tears
04 Davichi – Stopping Time
05 f(x) – NU ABO
06 DECEMBER – Tears in Heaven
07 Gummy – Because of You
08 Lyn – Honey Baby Love
09 Brown Eyed Soul – Love Ballad
10 VIBE – Come Back
11 C.N.Blue – Love
12 C.N.Blue – Love Light
13 B.o.B – Nothin` On You (Feat. Bruno Mars)
14 Seo Young Eun – 이 거지같은 말
15 Gummy – Like A Man
16 Super Junior’s Yesung – It Has To Be You
17 Monday Kiz – Scatter
18 Kiroy Y feat. KCM & Nonoo – The Stars of The Night..
19 Nieve and Cook – Chronic Intoxication (Ryoko Anan Natsu No Yuki Remix)
20 Lee Seok Hoon – 10 Reasons To Love You




[Chart] Music Bank 2010/05/28

June 2, 2010

Super Junior has won yet again in the latest K-chart in Music Bank. They were up against the Wonder Girls. The win was a no surprise to me. Didn’t I tell you that Music Bank is all about album sales? Fans have been controlling Music Bank by album sales. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the chart, here’s how Music Bank determines their winner.

Digital sound source chart score (60%)
Viewer preference (10%)
Album Sales (10%)
Broadcasting number of times score (20%)

Album Sales maybe just a mere 10% but as I said it is the easiest to control if you have fans that massive. We all know by now that Korean fans are die hard fans and will go to lengths to glorify their idols. Some went even to the extent to buy 2-3 albums a week (fan account only, I have no means to prove this but everyone knows this fact).

I’m not saying that Super Junior doesn’t deserve the award. I honestly like the song. I for one is puzzled why it’s not popular online. Even in cyworld. It’s just that Music Bank doesn’t tell which song is really popular but what song is selling the most. If you go back on my Music Bank and Online charts posts, those songs that sell the most, though not popular, wins in the show. SNSD’s “Oh!” prolonged their win. 3 of their 5 Music Bank wins are because of album sales

Starting from this episode, I will break down the points of the contenders in the number 1 spot. Anyway, congrats to Super Junior and to their adoring ELFs. I predict another SUJU win. I think Wonder Girls will start to drop in charts now their not in Korea anymore.

For Bonamana
Digital score: 1832
Viewer preference score: 929
Album Sales: 10387
Broadcasting Score: 1218
Total: 14366

For 2 Different Tears
Digital score: 5560
Viewer preference score: 883
Album Sales: 1138
Broadcasting Score: 830
Total: 8411

01 Super Junior – Bonamana
02 Wonder Girls – 2 Different Tears
03 Hot Potato – Confession
04 Davichi – Stopping Time
05 f(x) – NU ABO
06 Rain – Love Song
07 2pm – Without You
08 Seo In Kook – Love U
