*** UPDATED – 4 weeks later, Day 28 (Nov 10) Music Chart Rankings ***

D28- After 4 weeks, the song is still getting a lot of love… Just in time for Friday’s first comeback stage on Music Bank and Sunday on Inkigayo! (but which song will he promote?  This one or Because We’re Friends?) This song has a real sweet, light, and upbeat tone. People like happy songs! Glad Seunggi’s first song that he worked on got a lot of love.

D21- It’s been 3 weeks! It’s hard to stay at the top on the daily charts, especially because of new songs and albums coming out regularly, but the song’s still doing well on a few of the charts. The song’s doing better for the most part, than the other songs that came out around the same time. And Seunggi’s at the #5 and #6 spots on this week’s Billboard Korea.

D14- It’s end of Week 2 for ‘Time for Love’ and also Day 1 on the music charts of Seunggi’s 5th album songs, including title song ‘We’re Friends.’ It’s been a crowded field of big comebacks (Tablo, SNSD, Secret, Noel, Yoon MiRae) and popular music show compilations (SuperstarK and I’m a Singer), so congrats to LSG and ‘Time for Love’ on the music charts despite not doing any formal promotional activities!

[Below, originally posted Oct 15…]

Aside from Seunggi, Tablo and Kim Hyunjoong released songs on the same day. [EDIT- Sorry, my bad. Hyunjoong’s song was released on October 11, 3 days prior. Some of the press articles had mentioned him and I mistook that to mean his song released on the day.  But I went back and checked and it didn’t debut very high and has been struggling on the charts. But I think he has more songs to come from his upcoming album, so hope those do better.]

It’s basically a chart battle between Seunggi’s ‘Time for Love’ and Tablo’s ‘Airbag’ featuring Naul from Brown Eyed Soul.  Tablo’s song was #2 spot on most of the other charts, except for Naver where he came in first.  (Naver doesn’t have typical daily rankings)

Tablo’s comeback was totally anticipated, considering all that crap nonsense from a few loud, moronic people contesting his Stanford degree!  Glad Tablo weathered through all that!  He also recently signed with actress wife’s top-notch management, YG Entertainment.  Welcome back Tablo!  He and Seunggi go way back, so I’m glad to see the guys in the #1 and #2 spots!

‘Lucky Guy‘ from Kim Hyunjoong hasn’t debuted too well on the charts. It’s sort of surprising considering his glossy, hyped music video and promotions by powerhouse management, Key East.  I’m guessing this will be a big hit in Japan and other Asian countries more than in Korea (ie, drama ‘Playful Kiss’).

Hyunjoong and Seunggi will always be in K-entertainment together.  I love how they’re both cool about it and equally respect and admire each other.   Loved them together on Strong Heart last time.  And Hyunjoong recorded Strong Heart recently.  It’ll be interesting to see him and Seunggi (now solo MC) together.  Glad they already filmed before the music charts.  Could’ve been a bit awkward.

Congrats to Seunggi for the daebak start!  To fend off guys like Hyunjoong and Tablo, and their high profile management companies Key East and YG…

‘The Boys’ from SNSD drops on October 19, so it’s going to be tough to maintain the top spot.  And girl group Secret is set for October 18.

Hope Korean Airens help him to maintain #1…  that is, until the SNSD girls show up and take over the top spot!  And hope it stays on the charts a long time, like last year’s ‘Losing My Mind’ chart rankings.

Message from Seunggi…

This fall is time for love..!!  2011-10-14

How was the song “Time for Love” released today..?
I.. did well, right??^^ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
It was really terrific that it came out of my head like that.. ㅋㅋㅋ

I am glad to see a lot of people feel the same excitement that I did when I first wrote the song.. I am glad once again that my (music) sense hasn’t died yet ^^ ㅋㅋ (bursting with self-praise..)

I checked the response of people around me, including you guys, very closely today.  Everyone seems to like it. I think I can have a good dream today.  With the chilly wind whistling in the fall, (I hope) this becomes a song that can tickle your heart.. ^^

And I’m very thankful to all our Airens who have been attached to the monitor and mouse in order to get 1st place on all kinds of music charts and portal sites, but..  If I could shamelessly ask you a favor..

I hope this [your effort] won’t be short-lived…ㅋㅋㅋ

I’d like to give all of us a round of applause today. And I’ll leave you with a slogan. Today’s slogan “Listen again even when the song is already daebak”

I’ll see you in Daegu tomorrow!

Good night ^^

P.S. FYI, songs of this caliber in the 5th album…
Are aplenty…

  1. Sometimes I wish the music chart can categorize solo & group separately. Imagine a group with 9 members or 10 members winning a solo singer doesn’t look as impressive as a solo singer winning a group in a music chart.

    Hope Korean Airens will try their best to put his songs up on the chart as long as they can. Sometimes I wish overseas fans can buy the song online too.

  2. Yay!!! Seunggi fighting!!!

    Anyone know when his concert will be held??? He said December…but is this going to be an album-promotion based concert or an official one?

    • it’s a concert, not album-promotion related. It was rumored to be on the 10th & 11th Dec but it has not been confirmed by Hook Entertainment yet.

  3. Congratulations to uri SeungGi oppa! Hope for #1 again tomorrow!!
