2AM outranks SNSD on music charts
‘Ballad idols’ 2AM have been dominating a handful of charts with their newly released album, “Saint O’Clock“, catching many K-pop fans by surprise as SNSD’s 3rd mini-album “Hoot” was expected to reign supreme.
As of November 1st, 2AM’s “You Wouldn’t Answer my Calls” ranked 1st on many major music sites including Melon, Cyworld, and Mnet. Their other A-side, ”Like Crazy“, also ranked highly, attesting to the strength of 2AM’s appeal and vocal prowess.
Fans have been closely observing the neck-to-neck race between SNSD and 2AM. SNSD made a comeback last weekend with an engaging dance, and bested 2AM in the daily charts. However, 2AM took back their throne by Sunday afternoon.
At the showcase for their first album, leader Jo Kwon stated, “2AM’s positives are not visuals nor performances, but our individual personality and unique voices.”
An interesting competition, to say the least – although the two groups don’t necessarily fall into the same branches of pop music.
