Happy Lunar New Year to all our readers.
Due to Korea’s Lunar New Year celebrations, not many singers released new songs. As a result, our music chart is quieter this week and the top three songs remain the same as last week. Girl’s Day’s “Something” becomes the first song to repeat as No. 1 this year. This week it further pulls away from Ailee’s “Singing Got Better,” which remains at No. 2. B1A4’s multiple music show winning song “Lonely” is still at No. 3.
Working towards a comeback, Sunmi unveiled the track list of her new album, Full Moon.
The track list, which was released on February 11, revealed a total of seven songs that were produced by a variety of people. Her title song Full Moon was created by Brave Brothers, while other composers on the track list included Park Jin Young, Tommy Park, east4A, Wonder Girls’ Ye Eun, and more.
Ye Eun especially composed two songs for Sunmi, while Yubin and Got7’s Jackson featured in two different songs.
Got7’s JB revealed an incident with Park Jin Young while he recorded a song.
When Got7 attended February 14’s broadcast of KBS Cool FM’s Gayo Plaza, JB revealed an interesting story regarding JYP’s CEO Park Jin Young.
“My part in a song had ‘swagger’ in the lyrics, but he made me record the part over 100 times, because he said he didn′t ‘feel’ the swagger,” revealed JB.
Then he made everyone laugh by saying, “It was a high pitched part too…”
Girl’s Day’s “Something” continues to dominate and remains No. 1 for a third week. It becomes the first song since EXO’s big hit “Growl” last year to record three straight weeks on top of our chart. Taking full advantage of the slower months of K-Pop at the beginning of the year, Girl’s Day establishes themselves as one of the rising girl groups (we have another two in this week’s top 10).
Ailee’s “Singing Got Better” continues to hold the No. 2 spot. After topping the chart a month ago, this song stays strong at No. 2 for the past three weeks.
We have a new No. 1 this week!
“Some,” a duet between SISTAR’s Soyu and R&B artist Junggigo, jumps from No. 26 all the way to the top spot this week, overtaking our three-week champion Girl’s Day and their “Something.”
Soyu has become a favorite duet partner for male K-Pop artists as this is the third time she’s helping a relatively unknown male artist to get into the spotlight. In 2012, Soyu lent her vocal to Geeks’ “Officially Missing You, Too.” Last year, she had a No. 1 song “Stupid In Love” with Mad Clown. Now, four months later, she strikes again with this new No. 1 song “Some.” Geeks’ Lilboi returns the favor to be the featured rapper on this song.
JYP Entertainment is looking for new talent as they recently revealed a poster for an audition entitled “2014 JYP Dream Teen Audition.”
On February 25, the agency said, “We will be opening the “2014 JYP Dream Teen Audition” on April 5 for only those in their teens.” The poster reveals that only people born from 1996 to 2003 could audition, so it appears they are looking for possible trainees from about 11 to 18 years of age! Do you qualify?
Soyu and Jungigo’s “Some” not only repeated as No. 1 on our chart this week, but it becomes the first song in more than five and a half years to achieve a perfect score of 1000 points. The last song did it was Lee Hyori’s “U-Go-Girl” back in August Week 3 of 2008.
“Some” swept all the music shows last week and was also topped both GAON and Billboard Korea. It is still winning on music shows this week, and will be the favorite to be our No. 1 song for the third consecutive weeks next week. The question is whether “Some” can have another perfect score. We’ll find out next week.
Joining and already brilliant line of artists, M.I.B and rookie group GOT7 have been revealed as the third lineup for Mnet M COUNTDOWN – No.1 Artist of Spring 2014!
The hip-hop group M.I.B consists of 5zic, Young Cream, Sims, and Kangnam, who is currently the host of Mnet Japan’s Jjang! and K-Pop Zone.
GOT7 is JYP Entertainment’s first boy band in since six years ago when 2PM debuted. The rookie group has been gaining much attention after debuting in January of 2014 for its martial arts performances.
Despite strong competition from several new songs, Soyu and Junggigo’s duet “Some” refuses to give up the top spot and repeats as No. 1 for the fourth week in a row. “Some” recorded another win in KBS Music Bank last week and still tops Billboard Korea. It is the first song on our chart to stay at No. 1 for four or more weeks since PSY’s famous hit “Gangnam Style” one and a half year ago. Congratulations.
