Billboard goes K-Pop today (Aug. 25) with the launch of a new chart, the Billboard K-Pop Hot 100. The tally, which ranks Korea’s top-selling songs, kicks off with girl group Sistar‘s “So Cool” grabbing the No. 1 slot and  beating out second-place Leesang and 2NE1, who land not only at No. 3 (with “Ugly”) but also No. 14 (“Hate You”) and No. 21 (“I Am The Best”) on the chart dated Sept. 3.

GO TO THE BILLBOARD K-POP HOT 100
The Billboard K-Pop Hot 100 chart, launched in conjunction with Billboard Korea, is based on digital sales via leading websites as well as downloads from mobile service sites using an industry-standard formula and the most credible music data sources within Korea. The K-Pop Hot 100 debuts simultaneously here on Billboard.com, in the international chart section of Billboard.biz, in Billboard magazine, and also on Billboard Korea’s website, billboard.co.kr.

“The launch of the Billboard K-Pop Hot 100 chart is a milestone event, as it will provide the Korean music market with what we believe is Korea’s most accurate and relevant song ranking,” says Silvio Pietroluongo, Billboard’s Director of Charts. “We’re excited to be expanding Billboard’s globally recognized Hot 100 chart franchise into this country, and look forward to enhancing the K-Pop Hot 100 chart in the near future with additional data as well as creating new charts that showcase the breadth of Korean music.”

Meanwhile the artists dominating the top of the inaugural Billboard K-Pop Hot 100 reflect the fact that hit-making girl groups are a top attraction in Korean music. Sistar and 2NE1 are just two examples. T-ara, made up of seven young ladies, has secured the No. 4 position as well as grabbing No. 73 (visit Billboard.biz soon for positions No. 51-100). Miss A, whose influential management company also manages the ever popular Wonder Girls, rounds out the top five with their single “Good-bye Baby.” Here’s a closer look at five of the female groups ruling the K-Pop 100 this week.

Sistar, “So Cool”


Sistar

Sistar has won over men and women (and more men) alike with their K-Pop dance track, “So Cool,” which is characterized by its intense beat.  The ladies sing about rising out of a bad breakup and ending up stronger than ever before and feeling “so cool” about themselves.  As you can see in the music video, Sistar’s appeal is not only in its music but also in its choreography. Though Sistar has just recently released its debut album, the girls’ sexy moves hint at dancing skills that will continue to win fans as they progress further into their career.

2ne1

2NE1, “Ugly”


2NE1

2NE1’s “Ugly” is an electronic dance track, a genre that the group has come to represent in Korea. Infused with electronic-infused rock guitar,  The song’s upbeat rhythm is contrasted by its morose, self-criticizing lyrics.  In it, 2NE1 sings and raps from the perspective of young teenage girls who are unsatisfied with their appearance and hate the fact that their “ugly” face prevents them from being loved. All five tracks of 2NE1’s second EP have been top digital sellers in Korea signaling the lasting appeal of these four vibrant young women.

T-ara “Roly-Poly”


T-ara

T-ara dials back to Korea of the 1980s with “Roly-Poly.”  The track’s repetitive melody even recalls a touch of the Bee Gees’ classic hit “Night Fever.”  As the seven girls dance on a retro nightclub stage, they sing about suddenly meeting with Mr. Right on the dance floor and chasing him down all night.  The “Roly-Poly” music video also has a short film as the intro … so you can fast forward to 4:20 to hear the song.

Miss-A, “Good-bye Baby”


Miss-A

Miss A’s hit song, “Good-bye Baby,” is a dance track that smoothly combines hip-hop and soul elements.  Park Jin Young, who produced Wonder Girl’s hit song “Nobody” (which landed in the U.S. Hot 100 in late 2009), wrote the lyrics and composed the music for “Good-bye Baby.” Miss-A sings a powerful chorus telling their cheating boyfriends to leave for good.  In the video, the four ladies saunter around their jet black leather dresses, giving a visual representation of this lyrical appeal for independence.  Miss-A, who has two members — Fei and Jia — of Chinese descent, also has a sizable fanbase in China.

Dalshabet, “Supa Dupa Diva”


Dalshabet

The six members of Dalshabet (which means ‘sweet sherbet’) have found great success with their third single, the disco-esque “Bling Bling”.  In the music video, the ladies move away from the innocent and sweet image that they portrayed for their first two single albums and emphasize their more playful, sexy side.  Dalshabet sings about meeting their ideal boy at a disco club and dancing the night away.

Super Junior’s Sungmin and Shindong defend TVXQ on Xiah Junsu’s tweet


Ever since Xiah Junsu tweeted an emotional series of messages to U-know Yunho, it seems like more and more SM Entertainment artists are coming out to defend the two TVXQ members. The latest of these public dissidents are Super Junior’s Sungmin and Shindong, who each took to their Twitter or mini-hompy to express their thoughts on the controversy.

On January 7th, Sungmin wrote,

“After keeping it in after sometime, I’m leaving this message because I feel this has gone too far. Does (he) not remember the old days when we said we’d work hard together? We were happy even when we were practicing. Did (he) really forget the times when we thought going on broadcast even just once felt like a dream? I’d like it if (he) could look in the mirror once again and think whether (he) has forgotten his rookie mindset~ I understood and forgave them for leaving us without a single word so they could find their own paths, but I don’t know why they are making fools out of people who are quietly doing well by saying all kinds of these absurd lies and hurtful sayings.”

Meanwhile, Shindong, who followed BoA and retweeted Black Beat’s Sim Jaewon’s tweet, also added,

“Enemy (敵): An opponent who wants to fight or hurt another.

Ingratitude (背恩忘德): An attitude of one throwing away their indebtedness to someone and betraying them.

In other words, saying that my family wants to fight or hurt another is an attitude of one throwing away their indebtedness to them and betraying them!”

JYJ’s Junsu was asked by reporters about his tweet


JYJ member Xiah Junsu recently posted a series of ambiguous tweets which many have interepreted to be directed at TVXQ’s Yunho. These tweets concerned some fans and Junsu happened to be at an event where reporters could ask why he tweeted these things.

The members of JYJ recently gathered in Seoul to greet reporters on their pending “Their Rooms, Our Story” music essay album. The curious reporters questioned Junsu on why he wrote those ambiguous tweets on twitter and how he felt when he wrote them. Fellow JYJ member Park Yoochun also stated,“I’m curious myself as to why you wrote those things? Why did you do it?” With a wry smile Junsu replied, “It’s time to go now” and left from his seat.

During the greeting, some words were stated pertaining to the 3 members of JYJ and 2 members of TVXQ and their activities. Junsu stated, “This past year there were both good times and bad times, it was a learning experience. This year, we’re going to show a much better image of ourselves.” Kim Jaejoong also chimed in, “We could’ve handled our disputes in a more proper manner, I’m deeply sorry for the bad disputes we caused.”

Xiah Junsu’s English study invaded by Tigger


 

I’m not referring to the bouncy orange tiger from the Hundred Acre Woods, but to Xiah Junsu’s cute pet cat! Earlier today, Xiah Junsu posted a series of photos of his pet cat named Tigger invading his English study.

He tweeted,

I was studying English… Tigger who suddenly laid down on my notebook.. study

Oh! Look at this guy.. what about hyung’s study.. By any chance, are you going to sleep..? No.. right?

Hul… Looks like today’s study has ended.. it’s done… completely laid down his mat..

Our Tigger.. I still love you~^^

Fans commented, “Your cat is so cute! You’re handwriting is cute too“, ” I wish I was the one sleeping there ke ke ke“, and “Good luck with your English studies!!

JYJ’s “Ayyy Girl” MV is finally here!


We know you’ve all been waiting a long time for this, but it’s finally here – Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu are making their grand entrance into the international market with their “Ayyy Girl” MV!

The boys delivered an interesting video based off the ‘Gods of Olympus’ theme. Perhaps it’s a nod to their TVXQ days as the “Rising Gods of the East”? In any case, we’d love to hear about your thoughts on the MV.

Xiah Junsu dishes on his upcoming musical


Xiah Junsu is the first ever idol to prepare a musical concert with his own name headlining it.

Perhaps such is the reason why he’s working harder than ever preparing for his four day musical, set to begin on October 7th. Junsu will be working alongside musical stars such as Seo BumseokMin Young KiShin Young Sook, and others.

Already having received the rookie award for “Mozart!” at the Musical Awards, Junsu became widely known for his strong concentration skills and the amount of effort he puts into his rehearsals.

In a recent meeting at his rehearsal hall, Junsu met with reporters and honestly confessed his thoughts regarding his first ever self named concert.

Thank you for your interest. The pressure of being alone is bigger than ever, being the first concert under my name. This performance was only possible with the support of the director and producers. We’ve aready been rehearsing together for three months now so the level of synchronization with the other actors is as great as ever. We’re all working hard and I believe that we’ll be able to show everyone a great concert.”

The concert seats a 10,000 member audience and began production last May.

I released a single in Japan in May and this will be the first time I’m performing one of the songs in Korea. The song holds a message of my feelings for my fans.” Junsu’s “Intoxication” is considered one of the highlights of his musical, being the first ever performance in Korea.

Co-producer Yoo Heesung revealed, “‘Mozart!’ was sold out in February and was successfully completed. Junsu’s concert will be like a galla in style where the actors will be able to connect with the audience more as opposed to singing a few songs and going off stage. Levay also fell in love with Kim Junsu’s performance after watching him and has expressed that he would love to produce songs together. He also said that he will be writing a song specifically for Kim Junsu.”

Sylvester Levay is a world famous composer, also having worked on “Mozart!” alongside playwrightMichael Kunze.

One member of the musical revealed, “Kim Junsu never misses a day of rehearsal. None of us anticipated too much since he is a famous idol star but he has exceeded all of our expectations. He works very hard.


With so much effort being put into his musical, what meaning does it hold to him? Junsu replied, “A musical is a medium that gives me bravery and strength. It’s not just a stage that allows me to sing and act. It’s not something that I can just lightly accomplish, but rather something that I want to consistently work on into my future.”

The interview concluded with a question on TVXQ and whether he kept in contact with the members. Junsu simply replied, “Each individual member is working hard on his activities. Just watching each other work feels like support in itself.
