AOA... I really wanna love them but they just delivered yet another disappointing comeback. The songs are okay but not great. And they are really flopping badly in Korea. :( Their last Japanese album was so good and now this...

Yeah, I'm so surprised at AOA's performance on the digital charts right now. They had an incomparable run from Miniskirt to Heart Attack (even "Good Luck" was successful despite being a short promotion) but these two songs seemed to have bombed.

I think "Excuse Me" is great, "Bing Bing" is just okay. Their full album is totally awesome though, the quality of that album is up there with their best and I hope it doesn't get overlooked by the slow performance of the title tracks so far.

2016 - TOP KPOP TRACKS

1 Blackpink – Whistle: such an amazing debut song with great production and an amazing video! 8-)
2 BTS – Blood sweat Tears: that kpop converter became my obsession last month and November, really great choreo and the guys did their best in every presentation.
3 BTS – Fire: Really catchy, the ending choreo is insane!
4 Blackpink – Boombayah: from the very first listen you are hooked and obsessed with this track, seriously one of the best of 16, incredible debut single (Square A)
5 EXO – Monster: really great for an EXO song, it really took me a long time to get caught up with it but an amazing song anyways.
6 Shinee – 1 of 1: I love the retro production and 90’s style of the video! I love it
7 Hyuna – How’s This: Really ratchet and booty-popping track that I love!
8 BoA – No Matter What: SM Station release, but a really great collabo!
9 Ailee – Home: I love the RnB production on this! I love this track so badly!
10 Blackpink – Play With Fire : I love the song and the production as well! Really great effort by BP once again! I can’t wait for new music from them

They're probably flopping because of Seolhyun's dating "scandal"...

I don't think that was a big of a scandal, was it? It was kinda lowkey and their relationship only lasted a few weeks/months. Plus, I still see Seolhyun on TV A LOT as an actress & MC, and Zico is very well-liked among Korean public - all his recent singles went to number one (including the one's released after the 'scandal').

I remember two of AOA members had a quite big scandal a few months ago which had to do with their knowledge of Korean history or something, they even had to make an apology (and they cried too). I think it has more to do with that. :lol:

Nah it was pretty big. 99% of their fanbase in Korea is male and her popularity/reputation really took a hit. That and the history scandal + they were never THAT big. And the timing was also kinda bad. Koreans don't feeling like shaking their butts at this time of the year.

SM tryna make them 'Hip-Hop' so bad. :lol:

It's a good song actually. It's a really nice Urban/Hip-Hop midtempo but as a K-Pop title track, I think it lacks of catchiness - just like "The 7th Sense". It works as an Urban bop, doesn't work as a title track.

The whole NCT concept is beyond tragic at this point.

Anyway, Queen HyunA just announced her first American tour.
