The teaser spot showed each member saying the phrase, “I GOT7.” Yet, you couldn’t miss the quirky and unique personalities of each member such as Young Jae embarrassingly saying, “Why is it so awkward here?” to JB showing his breakdance move. Furthermore, while some members showed their charismatic side by repeating the phrase, “I GOT7,” other members either cracked up or showed a cute peace sign pose

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – March Week 3

By in News posted Oct March 16th, 2014 No comments

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.

As mentioned last week, a trio of big name artists released their new albums and they are storming into the top 10 this week right below the top spot. They will again try to dethrone “Some” for the top spot next week.

Moving up 20 spots to No. 2 is CNBLUE’s “Can’t Stop,” the title song from their fifth mini-album of the same name

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – March Week 1

By in News posted Oct March 2nd, 2014 No comments

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.

Coming in a distant second to “Some” is our highest top 10 entry this week. Moving up 19 spots to No. 2 is a very special collaboration between Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon and SHINee’s Jonghyun

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

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.

Moving up two spots to score their first top three hit is another rising girl group AOA. Their song “Miniskirt” won on SBS Inkigayo last week, their first ever music program win

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.

There are two new songs in the top 10 this week. Moving up 19 spots to No. 8 is Hong Dae Kwang’s “No Answer.” It is the title track from his single album “The Silver Lining.” and is an acoustic guitar style mid-tempo ballad that showcases Hong Dae Kwang’s sweet voice

The Got7 members shared a piece of advice they got from JYPE’s CEO Park Jin Young.

Attending a photoshoot with magazine Grazia, the Got7 members caught the eyes of the staff with their respectful attitude and stylish looks.

During an interview with Grazia, the members chose Jackson as the most confident one and Mark as ‘the most Korean’ member out of the foreign members.

Mark said, “I can adapt to a new environment quickly since I’ve lived in different countries since I was young. Jackson can’t eat spicy food, but BamBam and I like it.”

Choosing reading as his favorite hobby, Jr. said, “Taking acting lessons has broadened my expression in singing and dancing and since it requires a lot of imagination, I made reading a new hobby of mine.”

As a vocalist praised by Park Jin Young, Youngjae said, “Park Jin Young told me that my high pitched tone was very smooth and open

On the third episode, GOT7 were given the mission to play an image game through which the members have to point to which member fits the answer to each question the best and the member with the most votes gets punished with smacks on the back.


The majority chose Youngjae as the one who became the most handsome since his trainee days and Jackson as the one who is most likely to over-exaggerate his motions on stage. Jackson also chose himself as a good candidate to become leader if JB wasn"t around, bringing laughs with his confidence. The international members also had their cute moments when brushing up on their Korean skills
