Sometimes, what you desire, you obtain in the end, but by then it is no longer relevant.
Lee Jieun's elusive yearly #1 at Melon will probably come to pass because Brave Girls' new song was weak, summer is still not what it used to be in Korea since a new covid outbreak resumed the restrictions, and brave girls fandom now has a lot of growing pains because of the behavior of Brave Entertainment workers (one of them , a brother of Mr. Brave Brother, appears to be the center of this ruckus, which means it won't be resolved.)
From middle of May, it was predicted that Rollin would take Celebrity in 100 days, give or take a few days. Two months later the gap is still there, and if Rollin cannot at least reduce the gap significantly by end of August, which is getting farther and farther as BG's fandom fractures, Celebrity will probably win #1.
The singer who contributed nothing to Kpop for the first 10 years of her career is finally going to get her elusive Melon Yearly #1, on the year KakaoM surrendered to Spotify.
What would be it like one finally takes the yearly 1 in Melon on the year it ceased to be relevant?
