Soompi’s Weekly K-Pop Music Chart : April Week 4

Hey hey hey….! Today is such a beautiful morning..! Let’s start with soompi‘s latest weekly k-pop chart.

Well, Girl’s Generation (소녀시대/Sonyeoshidae/SoShi)  is on top! Wow..! Great job! ^^ But unfortunately my favorite Epik High drops down to no. 15 :(. Okay, here’s the complete chart…..

1. (+2) SNSD – Run Devil Run *** 1 WEEK NO. 1 ***
Score: 885
Genre: Pop / Dance

Music: Busbee, James, Engstorm / Lyrics: Hong Ji Yoo
Album: SNSD Vol. 2 repackaged version Track 1
Comment: Perhaps this is the last week that their song has the best chance to hit the top before more strong challengers fly in. SNSD manages to rise two spots to score their second No. 1 song of 2010 with “Run Devil Run”, from the repackaged version of their latest album. They unveiled their new concept: “Black Soshi.” Through this new concept, the girls are to show off their powerful charismatic charms. The girls are also going to show off their glam and chic look.

2. (+3) Rain – 널 붙잡을 노래 (Love Song)
Score: 849
Genre: Pop Ballad

Album: Rain special album “Back To The Basic” Track 1
Comment: Eyeing for the top spot next week is Asia’s biggest pop star Rain as he moves up another three spots to No. 2. Rain is finally returning to the k-pop scene and releasing a new special album “Back To The Basic”. The meaning behind the title is that despite being in the music business for eight years, his heart and effort in it is like that of a rookie artist. Many anticipate his new work which includes a photo shoot that equally captured attention from fans and non-fans alike. The title song “Love Song” already tops many charts upon its release. Popular actress Han Ye Sul stars with Rain in this song’s MV.

3. (-1) After School – 뱅 (Bang!)
Score: 831
Genre: Pop / Dance

Music: Kim Tae Hyun / Lyrics: Kim Hee Sun
Album: After School 3rd single Track 2
Comment: After School’s “Bang!” fell one spot to No. 3. This song was looking very promising with a nine spots jump last week to No. 2 but due to very stiff competition on the top it has fallen back this week. “Bang!” was composed and penned by Kim Tae Hyeon and Kim Hee Seon respectively. This song was originally going to be a follow up single on their previous mini album, but was saved up for later to upgrade it. The song uses drum sounds as its backbone with powerful vocals to accompany it. Continue reading “Soompi’s Weekly K-Pop Music Chart : April Week 4”

Comment: This is the title track of Kara’s 3rd mini-album. It is a dance pop number with an extravagant hip-hop beat and stimulating synth sounds. It has intense and refreshing sounds and is performed with the members’ impressive voices. The dynamic style of the song created through tension and relaxation fits the image of Lupin, who is known as the master of transformation. (credits to Arirang TV – Pops In Seoul)

Kpop Weekly Chart 2010 : March Week 4

Long time no see..!

Here’s Kpop chart this week (credit : soompi)

1. (+1) T-Ara – 너 때문에 미쳐 (Crazy Because Of You) *** 1 WEEK NO. 1 ***
Score: 951
Genre: Pop / Dance

Music: Cho Young Soo, Kim Tae Hyun / Lyrics: Wheesung
Album: T-Ara Vol. 1 Repackaged Version Track 1
Comment: With the album sales score of their repackaged album being taken into account this week, T-Ara overtook Kara for the No. 1 spot with their latest hit “Crazy Because of You”. This song was made by an all-star combination: co-composed by Jo Young Soo and Kim Tae Hyun and penned by Wheesung. This dance track has a pop feel with electronic sounds. 2010 is not even three months in and this is already T-Ara’s second No. 1 song and third top 10 hits. Congratulations.

2. (-1) Kara – 루팡 (Lupin)
Score: 931
Genre: Pop / Dance

Music: Han Jae Ho, Kim Seung Soo / Lyrics: Song Soo Yoon
Album: Kara mini-album Vol. 3 Track 2
Comment: After two weeks at the top, Kara fell back one spot to No. 2 with “Lupin”. After surprisingly winning the top female group on our last year’s Soompi Gayo Award, Kara continues their strong showing on our chart. The title song “Lupin” is from their recently released 3rd mini-album of the same name. Kara vowed to return to a more fierce image on this mini-album, a concept that did not fare too well when they used it on their debut album. But that was then and this is now. Kara has developed a large and loyal fan base now and fans are more receptive of their change in concept this time.

3. (+3) Outsider – 주변인 (Outsider)
Score: 807
Genre: Hip-hop

Album: Outsider Vol. 2.5 Track 2
Comment: Outsider broke into the mainstream last year with his fastest rap and the big hit “Loner”. Now he is back with his 2.5 album. The title song literally means “Outsider” as well, and it moves up three more spots into the top 3 this week. The song has dramatic beats and was composed by Master Key and Rhymer and penned by the artist himself. Fans will have a chance to listen to Outsider’s unique fast rap once again.
