Gaon data proves once again that digital -> girl groups, physical -> boy groups

Article: Gaon Chart Awards "The data has proven it"... Girl groups for digital, boy groups for physical

Source: X Sports News via Naver

1. [+1,177, -63] So the public listens to girl groups while fans listen to boy groups

2. [+1,007, -188] The male groups may be strong in physical sales but I have no idea what any of their songs are

3. [+815, -115] Amazing of Big Bang, still managed to win monthly #1 despite it being a mid-release. Congrats to everyone who won!

4. [+805, -132] The only male group in the digital category is Big Bang ㅋㅋㅋ God Bang

5. [+681, -123] It's digital that's a better reflection of what the public is listening to... physical sales are led by fandoms, which are mainly girls... they're the ones who buy fan merchandise and stuff

6. [+193, -25] Big Bang has the most Gaon points but they're in the girl group line ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+176, -26] Big Bang's the most amazing

8. [+154, -20] Perhaps Big Bang is a girl group ㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+146, -20] Does that make Big Bang a girl group then?

10. [+96, -13] And thus proves that Big Bang is a girl grup ㅋ a song released mid-December is overall #1... surprising!!!

11. [+79, -12] Digital songs are a reflection of trends while physical sales are more a reflection of fan collections~

12. [+53, -7] Big Bang can just be a co-ed group, they have both the public and their fans down pat ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

13. [+124, -36] The data proves once again that SM has absolutely zero public support. January went to Girlfriend, February went to Mamamoo, March went to Jang Bum Joon, April went to Twice, May went to Urban Zakapa, June went to SISTAR, July went to Wonder Girls, August went to Black Pink, September went to Im Chang Jung, October went to Twice, November went to Black Pink, and December went to Big Bang. No SM in any of the months ㅋㅋ JYP came out with 3, YG with 3 ㅋㅋ SM seriously has not one singer that the public has recognized.

14. [+28, -4] The reason fans get called 'stupid fangirls' is because they buy albums not for the purpose of listening to them but for the purpose of absolute loyalty... one fan will buy 10 albums at a time while the rest of us public listeners will take a listen to this and that and buy a song if we like it. On the contrary, stupid fangirls create playlists of songs that they force one another to stream like it's some religion. All 24 hours dedicated to streaming only one artist, absolutely meaningless... This is why there is such a drastic difference between what the public listens to and what stupid fangirls listen to.

15. [+21, -2] That Angelina Danilova girl who was out to give the awards pretty much owned every famous girl group in Korea... you could stick her in Twice and she'd easily beat out Tzuyu as the main visual. Young and super tall ♥

16. [+22, -3] You also have to consider that men skip over male group songs unless it's a group they know like Big Bang ㅋㅋ while women tend to listen to both male and female idol songs

17. [+22, -3] Women will listen to girl groups but men only listen to girl groups or hip hop songs

18. [+19, -2] So what do men listen to then? Do they not listen to boy groups at all other than Big Bang? I want to know which other boy groups men listen to
- I download whatever new song Big Bang comes out with
- Well last year Buzz made a comeback so I listened to them
- I listen to more solo singers than male idols, Big Bang's the exception
- I download Big Bang songs without even listening first, but with other boy groups I'll usually listen first and see if I like it. Lately I've been liking BTS 'Spring Day' but honestly the only boy group that men care about is Big Bang.

19. [+16, -1] Fans are living in their own delusional world. If you take out all the repeat streams that fans spam off of the real time charts... their songs are usually ranked all the way at the bottom. The only thing fans do is mess up the charts.

20. [+42, -10] A bit laughable to call 'TT' an honorable album. The state of Korea's music industry~

3. [+1,100, -132] So daebak that it's just in time for their 10th anniversary~ let's win daesang this year!

4. [+1,023, -119] They still have so much more to achieve 10 years in, let's run SNSD~

5. [+971, -121] Taenggoo's hard at work~ early congratulations to SNSD on their 10th anniversary

6. [+249, -24] Hopefully SNSD can keep the second generation girl group line going.. so sad to hear all the news of disbandments lately

7. [+236, -22] While their peers have disbanded and disappeared, SNSD is still releasing their 10th anniversary album, so proud

8. [+230, -21] Hul ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ SNSD was with me through my school days and now they're celebrating their own 10th anniversary, congratulations!!!

1. [+163, -93] Kick that Japanese right-wing Tiffany and get a fresh start

2. [+134, -74] Honestly they probably couldn't release albums because of Tiffany all this time

3. [+108, -22] It's tough to stick together for 10 long years but they did it, amazing

4. [+67, -1] SNSD's really the only group left when all their peers have disbanded

5. [+66, -28] They truly are amazing... other than Jessica who left out of her own greed, the 8 members have stuck together for 10 years!!! Keep it up!!

6. [+17, -19] But for being 10 years in, SNSD's singing skills other than the Taetiseo vocal line is way too weak. Hope they get a good comeback song.

7. [+13, -14] I predict Yuri, Sooyoung, and Yoona to leave in the future to focus ona cting

8. [+11, -18] They're going to come back with that right-wing??? Dumbfany taking the public for fools??

9. [+11, -18] Hopefully it's a good song... their songs have been pretty bad lately compared to how popular they are

10. [+11, -12] Honestly though, EXO, BTS, and Twice are way too strong for SNSD to win daesang this year... and there are even more idols who are shooting up right now


BoA to MC for the second season of 'Produce 101'

Article: [Exclusive] BoA to be the season 2 MC for 'Produce 101'... 'Kwon CEO' to take Jang Geun Suk's place

Source: E-Daily via Naver

1. [+708, -30] Hul, BoA's doing it? Quite unexpected..

2. [+732, -66] Now this makes me want to watch the show

3. [+415, -31] I think she'll do well... although I'm still more used to Jang Geun Suk

4. [+130, -15] Shows how important an MC position is... Just hearing that BoA is the MC alone feels like the quality of the show has gone up. At first I wondered why they were even bothering with a second season but now I'm interested in watching it ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+89, -3] Shouldn't BoA be on the show as a trainer or producer, not the MC

6. [+70, -2] BoA has 17 years of her own experience, she's more than qualified

7. [+66, -4] Well now this makes me want to watch

8. [+64, -4] I guess I'll watch the first episode then?


Choa shows how to style her famous 'comma hair'

Article: "Face! Get smaller!"... Choa's process of making the comma hair

1. [+1,967, -74] This hair style only looks pretty because it's on Choa

2. [+1,031, -36] If I tried this hair style, people would think I messed up my curls..

3. [+642, -46] Please come back on 'My Little TV'...

4. [+506, -42] Choa still looks gorgeous even without the platinum blonde hair ♡

5. [+429, -29] Blonde Choa, short hair Choa, comma Choa... the three hair line up Choa

6. [+426, -42] Choa so gorgeous ♡

7. [+383, -34] The hair style is buffed by Choa's beauty

8. [+304, -32] A new peak of her beauty ♡♡ Choa's vocal tone is jjang!


Article: "Group picture" AOA's cute charms

1. [+261, -72] They could get away with firing two of the members, useless

2. [+176, -118] Kinddokkang and the idols

3. [+169, -70] Their skirts are too short ㅡㅡ

4. [+29, -8] Honestly, the reason this group has had bad records isn't because of their scandal. Seolhyun is still as popular as ever and shooting a lot of CFs. The group itself just has too many nugus other than Seolhyun. Choa was popular for a bit but hasn't done anything since. Jimin was the one who said the kinddokkang comment but she's so unpopular that all the hate got directed to Seolhyun anyway. This group is pretty much Seolhyun and the idols. FNC should've pushed Choa more when she was getting up there with 'My Little TV'. They'll probably end up like Hyuna and the idols... group promos for a bit before Seolhyun drops out on her own.

5. [+25, -7] You could swap out all of the members other than Seolhyun and I'd never be able to tell

6. [+18, -6] You could seriously just keep Seolhyun and Choa and replace everyone else with other girls of similar height and no one would notice

7. [+18, -7] Seolhyun and the voices

8. [+12, -4] Yeah, I really don't know the names of the rest other than Seolhyun, Jimin, and Choa. The nugu members even look the same too.
