[NEWS] BLACKPINK Advances With “As If It’s Your Last”; Soompi’s K-Pop Music Chart 2017, July Week 2
There are a lot of changes on our chart this week! Both the top two songs are from outside the top 10 from last week. BLACKPINK continues the perfect start of their career, scoring their third No. 1 song with “As If It’s Your Last.” In 2016, they had two No. 1 songs on our chart last year with “Whistle” and “Playing With Fire.”
They are finally coming back with their third single “As If It’s Your Last,” jumping from No. 12 to No. 1 this week. “As If It’s Your Last” is an uptempo song made for the summer season. The lyrics are about a woman who wants her man to love her as if she is the last person he will ever love. This song also won on “Inkigayo” last week. Congratulations to BLACKPINK!
Moving up nine spots to No. 2 is MAMAMOO’s new song “Yes I Am,” which is the title track of their fifth mini-album “Purple.” “Yes I Am” is a cute dance track in which the members show off their charms in a lovely way. The lyrics describe a confident woman who loves herself. “Yes I Am” won on “Music Core,” “M!Countdown,” and “Show Champion” last week. However, BLACKPINK has a big advantage over MAMAMOO on our Soompi Airplay. Therefore, “Yes I Am” settles at No. 2 this week.
Girl power prevails this week, as TWICE rounds out an all-female top three with their track “SIGNAL.”
There is one more new song in the top 10. Debuting at No. 10 is Apink’s “FIVE.” This is the title song of Apink’s sixth mini-album “Pink UP.” Written by Shinsadong Tiger, “FIVE” is a dance song that sends a hopeful message to listeners and comforts their weary soul by “taking a five.” Apink’s lively and bright image is perfect for this song.

Various Internet Charts (Olleh, Bugs, Melon, Soribada, Genie) – 15%
Soompi Airplay – 20%
TV Music Show Charts (SBS Inkigayo, KBS Music Bank, MNet M!Countdown, MBC Music Core, MBC PLUS Show Champion) – 40%
[NEWS] SHINee Ranks 1st on Weekly Album Charts for Two Weeks Running
It has been revealed that SHINee has maintained the top ranking on weekly album charts for two weeks in a row with the group’s fourth full-length album “Odd.”
The group’s newest album, which was released on May 18, has taken charge of the number one spot on the weekly album charts of Hanteo Chart andSynnara Record. This week marks SHINee’s second week (May 25 – 31) of being ranked first on these charts, putting the album’s success on display.
Even more, “Odd” has not only been receiving much love in Korea, but also earned great results in America, as it topped Billboard’s World Album Chart, as well as sixth place on the United World Chart, which is determined by Media Traffic, a site that combines album sale totals for music worldwide.
SHINee has also been winning first on music shows with title track “View,” fromMnet’s “M!Countdown” to KBS’ “Music Bank,” SBS’ “Inkigayo,” and more.
Actually what is the criteria to win the music programs? i know different program has different criteria, but i don't know what is the exact criteria.
The criterias are quite complicated so pardon me for the length of this post. You can share this post if you want to TVXQ fansites/forums so ifans can decide the best strategy to help TVXQ winning all music shows.
Music Bank (imo this is the music show that matters a lot for Kpop fans since Mubank is very clear for the criterias and numbers)
They gave 200.000 kpoints to be shared to all artists each week. The kpoints’ distribution is:
Digital 65% (130000 kpoints) based on digital music sales on Melon, Bugs. Soribada, Mnet, Dosirak,etc. It made up from 3 scores, 45% streaming, 20% download and 5% mobile download.
Broadcast point 20% (40000 kpoints) based on the number of airplays the songs have in KBS programs for a week.
Since April 2013, Mubank changed the criteria of broadcast points so that news programs are excluded from the airplay count. If you remember how Gangnam Style won so many awards against TVXQ Catch Me on Mubank, that’s because news programs reported the hype on GS over and over again until Psy could get around 20k broadcast points. With this new rule, it’ll be impossible to get that many broadcast points even if the song becomes such a huge phenomenon like GS.
Viewer votes 10% (20000 kpoints) this could only be done by people who live in Korea. For a week, people can register their names and id to Mubank homepage and before Mubank is aired, they will pick sample viewers from registered members to vote. They choose fairly based on gender male/female and also all range of age 10s-20s-30s-40s-50s.
Album points 5 % (10000 kpoints) based on physical sales on Hanteo, which collected from sales from Synnara,Hot Tracks, Gmarket,etc
Now, this is how it works for digital sales (remember the points I wrote are my own made up points and NOT a prediction. I still wait for instiz winner prediction for Mubank)
Let’s say that MC the max day made up 5% of digital sales, Girls’ day made up of 4% of digital sales, Ailee made up of 3% of digital sales because they rank well on digital charts, and TVXQ made up of 0.6% and Rain made up of 0.4% digital sales because they didn’t do too well on digital chart.
The formulations would be:
MC the max : 5% x 130000 = 6500 kpoints
Girls’ Day : 4% x 130000 = 5200 kpoints
Ailee : 3% x 130000 = 3900 kpoints
TVXQ : 0.6% x 130000 = 780 kpoints
Rain : 0.4% x 130000 = 720 kpoints
The formulations for album sales
TVXQ made up of 70% of album sales, meanwhile Rain made up of 10%, and Girls’ Day 5%
TVXQ : 70% x 10000 = 7000 kpoints
Rain : 20% x 10000 = 2000 points
Girls’ Day : 5% x 10000 = 500 points
So, considering physical + digital sales alone, TVXQ would be a step ahead since their kpoints will be :
TVXQ : 7000 + 780 = 7780 kpoints
Girls’ Day : 5200 + 500 = 5700 kpoints
Rain : 2000 + 720 = 2720 kpoints
Digital sales (50%) They based it on Gaon weekly chart.
It’s the accumulation of rank points (the higher the rank, the more points) and also percentage from Gaon Mobile points (combination of Streaming + download + mobile on various digital charts)
SNS points (35%) based on Gaon social charts. It’s collected from Youtube views, likes and comments. For each views, likes and comments, they will count it as 1 points.
Viewer votes (5%) works the same like KBS viewer votes, just difference in you have to register on SBS inki homepage.
Live votes (10%) for winner candidates only. Rest assured, TVXQ will be included as one of the winner candidates, so you need to be online when Inki aired to vote them through SOTY application
Digital + Physical sales (60%) the biggest percentage is, of course, in digital sales. They also based it on Gaon digital and Gaon album sales chart.
Music video views (10%) based on Melon, Bugs and Mnet videos. I-fans can view TVXQ - Something MV on those three sites.
Viewers Committee pre-voting (10%) based on 2000 people who have MBC ID and also registered on MBC Mucore homepage. They will select them based on gender and age.
Live voting (10%) for winner candidates only. The difference with Inki live vote is, you have to vote 2 candidates among 3 candidates. Like for example, the winning candidates are TVXQ, Girls’ Day and Ailee, then you have to vote either TVXQ-Girls’ Day or TVXQ-Ailee.
Mcountdown have quite shady history for picking winner in favour of PDs’ interests so I don’t really care to this music program (beside Mcountdown is just a cable TV program). But here you go
Digital sales (50%) Also based on streaming + download + mobile on various digital charts.
Album sales (10%) Based on Hanteo, Synnara, Hot tracks
Global fan voting (5%) create a Mnet id and vote here. The vote has started from Friday-Monday.
Age preference (20%) different points for different rank.
Live show preference (10%) this is the point where PDs usually gave points to artist they favour because this point is hard to check
SMS voting (5%) for top 3 artists nominated for the win and it would be done when the show is aired.
For Mcountdown, the rank is very important since the points would be distributed differently for each rank.
Let’s say that TVXQ ranks first on album sales, so they get around 1000 points and Rain ranks second so he got 750 points and Girls’ Day ranks third so they got 500 points. Meanwhile for digital sales, Girls’ Day ranks 2nd so they got 4500 points, TVXQ ranks 8th so 1500 points and Rain 9th so 1000 points.
The formulations for Digital and Physical sales would be
TVXQ : 1000 + 1500 = 2500
Girls’ Day : 500 + 4500 = 5000
Rain : 750 + 1000 = 1750
So, from physical + digital sales alone, Girls day would win. This is just a scenario if Girls’ Day gets as much points as TVXQ in another categories.
