    • The peak of the idol boom, Japanese and Korean. Look at how idols were able to actually get digital hits then. Can’t do that anymore!

      Kara was the best idol group to ever be created period. They had the best songs, best concepts, the best personalities, the best of everything you look for in an idol group. Such a damn shame DSP fucked them over. My queens werent supposed to end like that. 😢

      oricon in the 10s is truly garbage

      • Because it reflects fanbases more than anything else.

        Hopefully it gets better now that they’ve got a digital chart. Unless the idol groups find a way to scam those.

      I know everyone on here loves to drag kpop but that snsd album is really the best thing those girls have ever release. Its the only snsd release imo that deserved to sell as much as it did lol
