#2279905 Kiss my lips ALBUM Hanteo daily sales and Gaon numbers

Posted by Kowan on 13 June 2015 - 10:30 PM

Hey guys, Just want to tell you that I won't be updating the sales numbers anymore. If anyone still wants to update then I provided the link to the source I get my data on. The Weibo link updates hanteo sales every single day so you can view that if you want. The user there updates, daily, monthly and yearly charts so that should be sufficient enough. The link to Gaon charts is also there. Anyway that's that and good luck to BoA!

I think from now on I'll have to get used to people on int forums calling BoA a 'flop' and that CL is the new queen of k-pop lol

Everyone experiences their "flop" times. Lol even CL. Most specially CL haha.

Hi! I can read some Korean and rest assured that there are ALOT of comments on BoA, just that they weren't translated as they weren't the top comments (but they were highly upvoted also). They were really shocked that she did so well, especially since it's her first time and she usually doesn't go on variety shows at all, and praised her reasoning skills ^^

Oh i see! Thanks! I kinda hoped she would get top comments as she is the guest and is new to the program.

she's crying:(11053202_963787210319595_399064632953633

Sadly, that's an edited photo. Her eyes weren't that red or looked like that on the performance.





Just putthing this here just in case you guys want to watch her final stage:


She's ended her promotions but it's still better to support her by watching on SBS's YT channel. haha.

She looks so pretty today! Her hair and dress is very casual. It's kinda weird though, her hair suddenly became wavy after the performance when SHinee won. LOL. Minho also thanked her when they won, awww.

Yes, that's true but even though 12 is a big number it isn't really too special of a number unlike 10 or 15? lol. Maybe I'm just being too hopeful.

LOL every anniversary should be special. I'm just hoping she gets more performances within the year, be it a concert, or an appearance on TV shows, whatever.

LOL at all the excuses being tossed up to defend a lousy album. Here's all the proof I need that this album stinks: PEOPLE AREN'T BUYING IT. If an album is good, and has the buildup this one did, it will sell like crazy. She's being outsold like mad in Korea, by artists putting out albums that are, you know, worth paying money for.

Look at Taylor Swift. She totally turned her back on the country music that made her famous, and that album could easily have tanked. Instead, it became a huge success for one simple reason: The songs are outstanding. Mind you, Taylor Swift gets on my nerves, and even I had to admit that she and her co-writers did an outstanding job. And I despise Miley Cyrus (esp. her chain-smoker's voice), but her last album sold well worldwide. These two aren't my favorite people, but they are capable songwriters.

In other words, I don't judge music by whether or not I like the artist. I judge it on its own merits, and I can see whether others agree with my judgment by how well the album is selling.

Here's how you tell whether someone's a natural songwriter: They'll start writing songs while they're still children or in their early teens. They write the bad songs early on, and have perfected their craft by the time they're in their late teens/twenties. SM wanted us to throw a party because, woo-hoo, BoA finally wrote her first single when she was in her MID-20's?? That's like applauding a healthy person for outgrowing diapers when they're 24 years old! Then she (co-)writes an entire album, as if that kind of talent doesn't need to be developed for decades?? Look how many years she worked to develop her (natural!) dancing skills before she even debuted. If she had songwriting talent, she would have learned how to play at least one instrument before she auditioned--natural songwriting ability just drives you to do that.

I would've LOVED for BoA to release something outstanding that would stomp everyone else's albums into the dirt with its awesomeness. But I'm facing reality here, BoA's no songwriter. If she were, other artists would want her to write songs for them. THEY DON'T. NOBODY DOES. That's not my opinion, that's REALITY. :(

I could offer so much examples of horrible albums selling a LOT. In Kpop, it's all about public awareness or Fandom. BoA HAD fandom power before but not now but she can clearly still get support by catching the attention of the public. People know her but their support are largely dependent on what BoA shows them and this time BoA chose the wrong song to show them. You clearly have little knowledge on how Kpop works these days. Western music and Korean music works very differently. Quality music ALONE rarely succeeds in the Korean industry. If what you are saying is how it largely works in Korea then we shouldn't be having mediocre idol albums on the top.

I doubt :( EXO's coming back next week. It means that this week's performances are the last.

She can still perform and promote even when others have their comeback. It's always been that way for all artists.

TBH Blonde does not suit her. It makes her look so much older. Good thing her hair is more reddish brown(with blonde ends)than completely blonde on her new hairstyle.

#2279322 8th Korean album will be released on 12 May

Posted by Kowan on 19 May 2015 - 10:24 AM

So @Kowan, how is it going? :D
BoA is #3 on hanteo today! Please don't tell me that she sold about 200 copies or I will pout
Seriously, what's the problem with discussing her chart performance? I'm a fan. I want the best for her career so I can get more music from her.
btw Kiss My Lips is slowly growing on me :D

I made a separate thread for it, do check it out! http://forums.boajja...d-gaon-numbers/

Who Are You brought a lot of public recognition to BoA. That's why they're hating on her now.
I need a repackaged album just to show to all those knetz who's the queen.

Agreed. Who are you was widely recognized and liked by people and so their expectations were very high for the main title track. She had momentum and hype for her title track for the people who were anticipating it and then...Kiss my lips happened. It destroyed everything WAY built up and well caused pretty much universal disappointment. Those harsh comments are  inevitable. Now people will most likely forget about her because of the song. The only way she could have people get interested and listen to her is she promotes WAY and just forget Kiss my lips ever happened. Leave it as just another track on her album. She could also release a repackaged with a better title track that is both public friendly and strong.

This is Bigbang's 3rd win so they won't be able to win anymore for Inkigayo, unless of course Bae Bae wins next. So BoA has a chance on winning next week with Who are you. Problem is, she's not promoting it so she'll get 0 points again on her physical sales and lower score on some other criteria. Kiss my lips has 0 chance on even getting to the top 5 next week. Oh well such is life. LOL

Wow her performance was gorgeous! The stage and effects and Smash had an awesome choreo!! I actually loved her KML performance for once, all thanks to the excellent camera, stage and effects. That part were they showered her with confetti and they showed those angel wings looked amazing! Also that part on Smash where she had her throne! Goddess indeed!


and of course bigbang won lol, the gap was enormous.

Why things are so complicated to android users? T-T

Yeah it's so weird since Korea is pretty much android centric too LOL.

I loved BoA's Music Core performances but the lack of cheering for her is kind of a downer.

Where did she place in the final ranking? I know BB won.

She's 4th with Who are you on Mcore.
