Did ROSÉ overachieve with english song in korea?

  • Her song was fully promoted right? So no it means the company aimed it partially for Korea.


    I dont think Ice Cream or The Feels got any promo. BTS promoted Dyna and Butter or am I wrong?

    In Korea... BTS has not promoted any of their songs since since march 2020. ON was the last one.

    the first time Dynamite was ever performed in korea by BTS themselves properly was after it had won SOTY.

  • Hard to tell rn. Very strong following amongst indie fans and college students.


    Square went viral about 2 years before it was released, so it did really amazing numbers for a bside, everything else she's released in the last 2 years (mainly English) has underperformed compared to her previous hits. She's still popular but I don't think people are connecting with her stuff.

    Koreans didn't like her english album and her pronounciation and wanted korean songs. The next one is only covers album. Let's wait and see how she does with a proper korean song. The new melon chart has not been kind to solo artists who don't promote. And the volunteers which is unknown was never going to do that well with english song.

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised if she finally cracks and the next album has a Korean title.

  • Rosé did extremely well for a solo debut with two English songs. People seem to have forgotten that OTG and Gone both peaked at #3 and #5 respectively in Melon and were at 1 or 2 in other sites. It entered the Kcharts even without the promo yet and OTG stayed in Melon Top 100 for 6 months.


    If not for IU and BG, she would have had gone higher. But despite that, she was on #3. For a solo debut facing those two, she did extremely well. I just hope that she'll release Korean songs next time because Knetz just love her voice so much.

  • She was HEAVILY promoted there since the release day. Not only in Korea but in US too. She's new YG favorite.

    Even without the promotions yet, OTG and Gone entered #3 and #5 respectively in Melon in just 8 hours. Plus, she didn't even had heavy promotions in SK except her music show performances. She only had what two variety appearances(Ugly Duckling and Knowing Brothers with Hyeri). She's just well-loved in SK.


    And she only had 1 US show performance and that's in Jimmy Fallon. Those interviews she had happened a week after her solo was released.
