Known to make women drop to their feet and to have “dated” tons of female idols, Taecyeon met his match and her name is Suzy.
When the cast of the upcoming drama Dream High was interviewed the reporter asked 16 year old Suzy “Between Taecyeon and Kim Soo Hyun, which one of them is closest to your ideal man?”
Suzy ended up chosing Kim Soo Hyun which shattered Taecyeon’s pride as he burst out of his seat in a fit of jealousy. Taecyeon sputtered, “Normally people don’t choose, but she really chose!”
Poor turtle boy how much the agony hurts knowing someone doesn’t have a crush on you!
Its idol madness on Oricon!
This week KARA released their 1st original album Girl’s Talk while BEAST released their first album BEAST – Japan Premium Edition and 2PM released their 1st Japanese DVD Hottest ~2PM 1st MUSIC VIDEO COLLECTION & The History~
But sadly, neither one has made no.1
KARA unfortunately picked a nasty week to go against Utada Hikaru one of the Japan’s biggest and most popular singers who released her farewell album Utada Hikaru SINGLE COLLECTION VOL. 2 as she goes on hiatus, throwing KARA in the no.3 spot which is still impressive and a first for female K-pop groups but clearly everyone from SNSD to Big Bang is itching for that no.1 spot that no other Korean group besides TVXQ has held.
Despite their relative unknown status BEAST faired not too bad debuting at no.6 for a group only in their 2nd year.
And finally 2PM shined bright on the charts as the only reason they didn’t win no.1 was because of the King of Pop, Micheal Jackson’s Visions DVD so that certainly is still impressive!
Despite being the obvious unoffical leader of 2PM, on the recent episode of Oh My School turtle neck boy Taecyeon claimed that the minute Jay Park left 2PM that was the worst moment of his life
“Last year, while promoting ‘Heartbeat,’ I created the ‘Jjit-Taecyeon’ nickname with our zombie performance. That nickname became something indescribable in my life, as our popularity at the time was sky-rocketing. Unfortunately, my life fell straight through the floor in the midst of the ‘Jjit-Taecyeon’ time due to the departure of a team member.”
Since Jay Park left though Taecyeon has achieved the most popularity among the group (besides Nickhun) taking part in various projects outside the group this year.
Poor innocent Ga-In was recently robbed on the last episode of Music Bank as despite immense positive reaction towards her solo debut and sales in the online charts she lost to 2PM for the K-Chart award.
Despite leading in nearly every category Ga-In lost leading netizens to go into a fury writing “This was manipulated. JYPE bought back their own albums in order to give the win to 2PM“, “It’s such a disappointment that a group won just because of blind album sales and not because of talent“, as well some cruelly admitting“This is why the state of our music industry is such a mess.”
The problem isn’t totally JYPE’s fault though as Ga-In’s own company Nega Network were not expecting, Ga-In to do so well and overcome Narsha in sales which led them to at first only produce a measly 10,000 copies of the physical album despite the fact Ga-In has become a popular figure in Korea with her husband Jo Kwon due to the show WE GOT MARRIED, therefore leaving some fans unable to buy the album
Critics also slammed Music Bank for its impossible point system as with voters being able to vote through their me2day or Twitter its pretty obvious that the group with the largest fanbase is a INSTANT shoe in to win
In the end the biggest of all parties to get slammed where Hottests who have received massive hate from other groups for spending an incredible amount of $150,000 in bulk purchase because of their insecurity of 2PM being able to win.
2PM fans recently went into a huge panic, when they thought 2PM wasn’t going be no.1 on the charts leading the fans to cough up $150,000 in order to go on a massive hoarde fest of their new album STILL 2:00PM
Only problem is, Hanteo Charts didn’t count their purchase.
The company defended its actions saying Hanteo clarified, “Whenever there is a large rush in sales for one album, we put off reflecting it in the charts in order to check and confirm that it was a legitimate purchase. This information will be sent to the broadcast companies.”
This is nothing new in the life of Korean fans who are known to do the craziest things like spending up to $600,000 or asking people for their log in info so they can increase the viewership of a video online
The music industry;s representatives are none too happy with all of it saying that fans are doing nothing but manipulating the digital music charts and distorting the true reflection of what’s REALLY popular.
Which screws all the “little people” in the charts (or other top artists)
