Korean Music Chart January Week 1

Entah kenapa, akhir-akhir ini lagi pengen bahas yang berbau Korea. Kalau kemarin sudah bahas filmnya, maka hari ini akan sedikit bahas lagu-lagunya (lebih dikenal dengan istilah K-pop)

Chart ini saya ambil langsung dari soompi weekly K-pop music chart 2010

Here is the first music chart of 2010. As we always do at the beginning of each year, we are making some changes on the weight of our sources to better reflect this chart ranking. For this year, we decide to combine all the cable sources (MNet, KMTV, Cable airplays) into a single source and accounts for 15%. We won’t reference to M!Countdown anymore. Instead, we’ll use MNet’s weekly internet chart as their base. Also, all the three major TV Stations (SBS, KBS, MBC) will have a 10% weight on their rankings. Other parts of our sources are unchanged.

Because our last chart of 2009 was two weeks ago, and with all these changes taking place effective this week you will see a lot of new songs and big movements on the chart. Next week should go back to normal.

1. (+6) T-Ara – Bo Beep Bo Beep *** 1 WEEK NO. 1 ***
Score: 823
Genre: Pop / Dance

Album: T-Ara Vol. 1 Track 3 Purchase this album
Watch: MV Live Performance
Comment: As the calendar turns from December 31, 2009 to January 1, 2010, last year’s standout rookies are no longer new singers. Picking up where they left off in a strong 2009, T-Ara scores their first ever No. 1 chart hit with “Bo Beep Bo Beep”. It is also the group’s 3rd top 10 hit after “Lie” and “TTL”, coming from their first full length album which many top composers wrote for them. “Bo Beep Bo Beep” is a hot dance track with additive melody. T-Ara just won the bronze award of best newcomers on our soompi gayo awards show. Looks like they are ready to challenge other top k-pop girl groups this year.

2. (+4) After School – 너 때문에 (Because Of You)
Score: 821
Genre: Pop / Dance
Music + Lyrics: Brave Brothers
Album: After School 2nd single Track 1 Purchase this album
Watch: MV Live Performance
Comment: Just two points behind T-Ara is another outstanding rookie female group of last year. After School already won a mutizen award on Inky Gayo with this song “Because Of You”. It moves up 4 spots to No. 2 this week, surpassing their debut song “Diva” which went to No. 6. Unlike their previous hits, this song is slower in tempo and has a Shibuya kei style with electronic pop sounds. It is a new try for both the group and hot songwriter Brave Brothers. Through this song, listeners can see their top notch live performance. This song already topped many internet charts in Korea.

3. (+35) Younha – 오늘 헤어졌어요 (We Broke Up Today) *** CO-BIGGEST MOVER OF THE WEEK ***
Score: 800
Genre: Pop Ballad

Album: Younha Vol. 3 Part B Track 2 Purchase this album
Watch: MV Live Performance
Comment: Our first big mover is from Younha. She returns with part B of her third album, titled, Growing Season. Younha has been known for her unique piano rock tracks in the past. She never promoted a ballad song until now. The song “We Broke Up Today” is a sad ballad number which expresses one’s truthfulness on the hardships of breakup. It was penned by fellow singer Hwayobi.

4. (-3) 2PM – Heartbeat
Score: 760
Genre: Pop / Dance
Music + Lyrics: Park Jin Young
Album: 2PM Vol. 1 Track 2 Purchase this album

Comment: Title song of 2PM’s first studio album. A heartbeat becomes the backbone of the rhythm with a drum sound taking over as the main accompaniment, creating a unique new sound. The lyrics are about a man in despair over a breakup. 2PM’s incredible performance is highlighted in the music video. (credits to Arirang TV – Pops In Seoul)

5. (-3) U-Kiss – 만만하니 (Am I That Easy Going?)
Score: 624
Genre: Pop / Dance
Music + Lyrics: Brave Brothers
Album: U-Kiss mini-album “Conti UKiss” Track 2 Purchase this album
Watch: MV Live Performance
Comment: This is the title track of U-Kiss’ 3rd mini-album “Conti Ukiss.” Its gangster-style hip-hop rhythm creates a fresh harmony with the electronic genre. The sharp tone of its lyrics and addictive sounds are especially impressive. The music video shows the U-Kiss members, who have been transformed from young boys into chic guys.

6. (+7) Park Jin Young – No Love No More
Score: 503
Genre: R&B / Dance
Music + Lyrics: Park Jin Young
Album: Park Jin Young mini-album “Sad Freedom” Track 2 Purchase this album
Watch: MV Live Performance
Comment: Having produced some of the most successful k-pop artists this decade (2PM, Wonder Girls, 2AM, Rain, G.O.D, etc.), Park Jin Young (JYP) is taking his turn as a singer and returns to the top 10 this week with the title song “No Love No More” from his latest mini-album “Sad Freedom”. Many of the younger fans may not recall JYP as a singer and dancer, but he has many hit songs in the past. He showcases his singing and dancing steps on this funky song. After watching his performances, fans will understand why he has so many bright pupils.

7. (+33) Brian (feat. Supreme Team) – 내 여자 (My Girl)
Score: 487
Genre: R&B / Dance

Album: Brian Vol. 2 Track 2 Purchase this album
Watch: MV Live Performance
Comment: In any weeks a 33-spot jump is good enough for the week’s biggest mover, only this week is the exception. But it is still no small accomplishment for Fly To The Sky’s Brian, who released his 2nd solo album recently and made a big jump to the top 10 this week with “My Girl”. Unlike most of his songs from Fly To The Sky and also from his first solo album, “My Girl” is dance track featuring hip-hop group Supreme Team who gained attention last year with “Super Magic”. It is a refreshing new style for Brian.

8. (+35) Eun Ji Won (feat. Mr. Tyfoon) – 사이렌 (Siren) *** CO-BIGGEST MOVER OF THE WEEK ***
Score: 468
Genre: Hip-hop

Album: Eun Ji Won Vol. 5 Track 5 Purchase this album

The album was produced by Eun Ji Won himself and Keeproots. The title track is “Siren” is at No. 7 this week. This song fits the current trends with catchy melody; it is of the electronic hip-hop genre. It is about loving a friend’s lover and therefore worrying about it.

Score: 464
Genre: Pop Ballad

This new single is a gift to her fans, returning the love that they had sent her while she was having a hard time after her car accident. ‘Have A Drink’ is about a woman who is suffering after a break up with a loved one. This ballad can be added onto her list of hit songs which brings her emotional and maturity up another level. Actress Nam Sang Mi starred in this song’s MV.

We will be able to hear a new melody to the song as well as a rap portion. Different from the pop/rock feel that we heard from “Love Rain”, “Love Snow” has more of an orchestration and electric piano sound to it. There are also carol tunes in between the chorus and bridge sections of the song. About 50 of producer Kim Hyun Suk’s trainees gathered together for the harmony and two new artistes, Droplet and Slime were featured in the song.

12. (New) Ga In & Jo Kwon – 우리 사랑하게 됐어요 (We Fell In Love)

Album: Ga In & Jo Kwon digital single “We Fell In Love” Track 1
Watch: MV
Comment: The latest hit coming from the reality TV Show “We Got Married” features Brown Eyed Girl’s Ga In and 2AM’s Jo Kwon. It’s composed by Brown Eyed Girl’s leader Je-A. It is a nice duet song that has an (8 beat) new wave sound that was popular during the 1980s. Composer Lee Min Soo (Love; Abracadabra) and lyricist Kim In Na have contributed in creating the song as well. Ga In and Jo Kwon also contributed to the lyrics by telling honest stories of their make-believe marriage life.

Score: 345
Genre: Pop Ballad

They already announced they are leaving to continue their already successful solo careers. Kim Eun Jung and Ha Joo Yeon will stay in the group with new members replacing Park and Seo. “Love Story” is about a love story between a man and a woman in which they go through different stages in their relationship. The lyrics express the different emotions very well and the melody fits perfectly with the winter atmosphere. Unlike Jewelry’s dance songs, “Love Story” showcases the members’ strong vocal and rap skills. Jewelry has not promoted a ballad track since “Tonight” from their 2nd album. The MV is a compilation of footage focusing on Park Jung Ah and Seo In Young.
