Album sales of recent Girl Group comebacks

For the past few months there has been a huge increase in the interest of girl groups and their wellbeing. Quite a lot of people expressed their disappointments at how their favourite bop providers don't receive justice for all their hard work yet mediocrity, that is the male species, get rewarded for anything and everything. Recently, several famous/infamous girl groups made comebacks. Some of them were by top tier groups and some still waiting for that shot to fame but with members that are already popular. It's fair to say that a girl group breathing will send stans on a mad one with phrases like "they did that" and "*insert boy group* could never" being thrown left, right and centre. Girl group stans rage from the lack of success for their beloved girlies but how many of them actually came through for these struggling indie artists and bought their album? Did your favourite group meet the fandom's expectation.mp3?

Recently, Lee Sung Kyung partnered with fashion magazine Elle for a photo shoot, where she also talked about finishing her recent drama “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.”

The released photos show Lee Sung Kyung dressed in simple and neat outfits that match with her pure and elegant make up. The actress completed the look by posing naturally throughout the photo shoot.

After finishing the photo shoot, Lee Sung Kyung sat down for an interview, where she talked about MBC’s “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.” “I think I received praise because Bok Joo is just so lovable as a character. It wasn’t because I did anything especially well. But I did work hard so that viewers could really feel Bok Joo’s sincerity. I believe that if I act with as much sincerity as I can, then viewers will feel it in their hearts,” she explained.

YG remains classy, try to blame 2NE1 disbandment on BOM

*Insert pic of a lizard*

In an interview with Yonhap News on January 17, YG head Yang Hyun Suk dished on BIGBANG’s plans for this year, 2NE1’s disbandment, political scandals, and more.

When asked about having BIGBANG, the agency’s biggest group, go on hiatus (excluding solo activity), Yang Hyun Suk said, “BIGBANG has grown to a scale the likes of which I never imagined. Everyone is worried about BIGBANG going on hiatus. But the members have their own, very successful, solo careers. They’ll be focusing on solo promotions this year; G-Dragon’s passion for his solo work is outstanding, and Seungri is preparing a solo album for March. Daesung will be doing a dome tour in Japan, and Taeyang is also preparing a solo album.”

Regarding the sudden disbandment of 2NE1, Yang Hyun Suk said, “When Gong Minzy moved to a different agency, I wanted to save 2NE1. What led to the decision to disband the group was the state of Park Bom’s mental health. After ‘the incident (Park Bom’s drug scandal),’ the criticisms we received were endless. But in addition to the stress and guilt from that, I’m sure Park Bom would have felt a strong determination to continue 2NE1. I told her, ‘2NE1 is important, but I wish for you to be healthy, both mentally and physically.'” Yang Hyun Suk said it may not be the end for 2NE1: “You never know what can happen; it’s possible they’ll get back together like S.E.S. It may not be as long of a break [as S.E.S], but I’m thinking there’ll be a day when the reunion happens.”

Yang Hyun Suk also spoke out about the political rumors he was pulled into, in which he was rumored to be involved with Choi Soon Shil and receiving governmental favors. Yang Hyun Suk said he has no time for politics: “Being in the entertainment business, I was careful about leaning toward one side or another, so I purposefully avoided [politics]. There was a time during President Lee Myung Bak’s administration when I was to receive a presidential award, but I didn’t even go because I didn’t want to take my hat off. They came and delivered it to my office. I’m so busy doing what I love; I have no interest in things related to politics.”

Yang Hyun Suk Says iKON and WINNER will Both Make March Comebacks

This morning Yonhap News released an extensive interview with YG Entertainment founder and CEO, Yang Hyun Suk, in which he stated YG will be intensively focusing on WINNER and iKON in 2017.

In the interview Yang Hyun Suk stated, “This year’s biggest focus is iKON and WINNER. Both teams will release new singles in March. Now that we’ve successfully debuted our newest girl group BLACKPINK last year, we will be devoting our all our affection to the two teams.”

Yang Hyun Suk compared his strategy to that of a farmer’s, saying, “I think of myself as a music farmer. A true farmer doesn’t envy the fruits of the neighboring orchard, but instead is intent about finding good seeds. It is fun to reap [the fruits of labor], but I feel it is even better to cultivate them. These talented kids are like good seeds.”

Late post today KBS made a couple mix ups and I had to double check all the videos T-T. The videos are working, for some reason KBS disabled playback on other websites, so you'll have to open the videos in a new tab. I think it might've been because they uploaded Niel's performance and titled it Seohyun's Magic, and Seohyun's Don't Say No is actually Magic. So the title of the videos might be confusing but I have it all sorted!

Flashback Friday

Reading the title of the song at #3 and then the title of #2 makes me LOL. Every week I go through the charts for this Friday in the past and post the top three songs. Then, I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, we’ll check out the top tracks in the 3rd week of January, 2009.

#3 Bobby Kim “Love…That Guy”
I don’t remember this MV, but this is the song I identify with him the most. I feel like it’s one of his most popular tracks.
