Rookie Female Group nominees

Having seen the five groups show up suddenly and made a comet-like impact upon the K-Pop world, many are extremely curious as to who will MAMA choose to be the rookie female group of the year.

The live broadcast of the 2009 MAMA will take place on November 21 at Seoul’s Jamsil Stadium. People that live outside of Korea, don’t give your hopes up yet, because there’s a reason why MAMA is titled MAMA!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the readers of this weekly music chart post, and our team of music staffs: motoway065, adikkeluangman, Aziraphale, ~S2~, and purpletiger86.

Album: Baek Ji Young Vol. 7 Track 4
Comment: The last No. 1 song of 2008 belongs to Baek Ji Young, as she moves up to the top this week with “Like You Got Shot By A Gun”. This song is already No. 1 on all major internet charts in Korea, and deserves to be ranked No. 1 here. Coming back from vocal cord surgery, Baek Ji Young traded her signature husky voice for a pure crystal tone and released her 7th album “Sensibility”. Since switching from Latin dance to ballads two albums ago, Baek Ji Young has enjoyed great success. “Like You Got Shot Bu A Gun” is a sentimental ballad written by

Album: Big Bang Vol. 2 Track 3
Comment: This is the representative track of Big Bang’s 2nd official album, “Remember.” The remake combines the refrain of Lee Moon-sae’s “Red Sunset” with rapping done in Big Bang’s distinct style. It’s filled with fun beats and groove. The music video presents a message of hope to people struggling in society or economically. It was shot on Korea’s west coast, a place that recovered and found hope even after a major oil spill. (credits to Arirang TV – Pops In Seoul)

Triple-S, which is also the name of SS501’s fan club, represents a new challenge for the three members as they push for a more mature sound and look, and even unveil their songwriting skills. Produced by the same team that created SS501 hits like 4 Chance, the album’s title track U R Man is just about a guaranteed hit with its catchy mid-tempo melody and urban house sound.

Shin Gun (With Kim Hyun Jung) – 사랑에 지치다 (Sick of Love)
Genre: Hip-hop ballad

Album: Shin Gun digital single “Love & Hate Part 2” Track 2

Comment: Our last bonus track of 2008 is one of my favorite songs recently. There are a lot of hip-hop artistes who specialize in rapping slower tempo songs in k-pop these days. Shin Gun is one of them. After a sweet love song with As One, Shin Gun releases a second hot single of the Love and Hate Project. The title track, Sick of Love, which features Kim Hyun Jung, is about a sad story between a couple who has just broken up. This song was composed by Park Jung Wook, who has also done songs for T (Even If You Cry Without Notice) and Zia (Sorry, Mom). Shin Gun took part in penning the lyrics as well as designing the concept. We rarely hear ballads from Kim Hyun Jung, but she has proved that she is equally good in singing this kind of songs here.

보건복지가족부는 지금까지 ‘세이노(Say-No) 금연송’ 뮤직비디오 시리즈에 국내 신세대 가수의 참여를 이끌어내며 금연에 대한 젊은 층의 자각을 일깨우는데 주력해 왔다.

금연송 뮤직비디오에는 그룹 슈퍼주니어를 첫 주자로 원더걸스, V.O.S, 에픽하이, 다비치, 서인영, 샤이니, 남규리, 빅뱅, 쿨, 신혜성, F.T 아일랜드, 카라, 2PM, 브라운아이드걸스 등이 출연해 왔으며 실제로 금연에 대한 관심도를 높이는데 성공을 거뒀다.

보건복지가족부는 “연예인을 통한 금연 캠페인은 청소년에게 간접흡연의 위험성을 알리고 메시지를 효과적으로 전달할 수 있다.”며 “이들은 청소년 층의 큰 공감대를 형성하는 데 기여한 바가 크다.”고 설명했다.

동방신기의 금연 뮤직비디오는 오는 26일 공중파TV 가요프로그램에서 방영될 예정이며 보건복지가족부가 운영하는 온라인 사이트인 ‘세이노(Say No)’ 금연캠페인 홈페이지(에서도 감상할 수 있다.
