Cheer Up was everywhere on TV and was a part of political rallies, it is still so famous. It was a phenomenon like Dynamite is. I see no comparable impact of LSG. You take in both impact and longevity. Dynamite like Cheer Up was everywhere, the pandemic for LSG is a foolish excuse cause we could still see Dynamite's impact with all the covers and its mention on shows and otherwise just like with Cheer Up. Famous Kpop idols spoke about how Dynamite is heard all over Korea.
Also LSG is not even the top 3 biggest hits of 2020 when a whole ass Any Song and Eight exist and also Psycho and Maria. I don't see how you all are acting like LSG was the 2nd biggest song of the year just cause it outlasted other songs in Melon top 10, just using one metric to call it a national hit, when we all know this is a post reform effect, and there are atleast a handful songs other than Dynamite which were bigger than it. A bit preposterous ngl how the other hit songs' erasure is happening here. I find it fascinating and amusing how Blinks move from calling a song a hit to a massive hit to a national hit so easily. Like a national hit is just a piece of cake.
Your essay does not even address 1% of my point!
No, not eveb close. Ive seen songs called 'flops' pulling ULs like that after the samentime and bigger indexes.
Its a hit, but also a product of a current system. Its much harder for hit songs to be ejected from thebtop 10 these days than in previous years.
1. If Cheer Up released at the same time as Dynamite and had 0 hour at No.1, you won't consider it a national hit anymore, right?
2. ULs are also up to dominance of Melon system. That's why it is better to use rankings as rankings are comparative like Z-score in Statistics. People may switch from melon to other platforms, but sample sizes from Melon are still big enough to draw statistically validated conclusion. Otherwise from now on, we will not have any more national hit forever as ULs from Melon will not be as high as before anymore.
Lsg cant be a national hit. Because dynamite was ahead of it all along. Dynamte is the national hit..... not lsg.....
If you call lsg a NH then what does that make dynamite?
NH isnt about numbers its about impact and dominance...... how can number 2 be national hit. Despite its success.. it never on dynamite level.
Cheerup was the hugest hit of that time.. it stayed number 1 a long time.... and made huge impact. I fail to see how anyone can logcally place LSG on the same level of an iconic song like CU
If Cheer Up happened to be released at the same time as Dynamite and did not get any number 1 as it was blocked by Dynamite, wouldn't you consider Cheer Up as a national hit anymore?
The groups which dominate more in domestic market: now that their worldwide spotify numbers will be bigger.
The groups which dominate more in international market: now Korean GP will know how big these groups are internationally by spotify numbers.
Cringe. I mean I've got some bad news for ya mate.....you know we all, your fandom included, consider you the Blink version of Dreamer right? The vibes you give off.
LoL wait till me get banned for once to touch those legends.
I never get banned either temporarily or permanently.
Not sure why your dragging Twice to be honest or even why in the first place your fandom in here brought them up...?
Make no sense, mayb it was due to the epic embarrassment you feel and the massive insecurity this thread and your entire fandom has been radiating since yesterday and the numbers came up embarrassingly short of the predicted 2-5 million yall have been claiming for over 2 months now.
Even in this thread people are refusing to accept the 280k and doing mental gymnastics to deny it, why? It could only be shame right? Otherwise the reaction would have been 'wow 280k amazing!!' rather than what it actually was '280k! Don't believe the trolls lies'....
Talk about other groups all you want but my faves weren't on a platform x10 times bigger than any other video host, didn't go on a media campaign with James Corden, didn't tease and release a brand new solo 2-3 years of hype in the making and didn't pull in just a measly .45% of their total subscriber count. Maybe they should have used ads.
Ok so now I know you are pressed that you need to post this excuse about platform. If I am right, I have seen your excuse about Twice's platform in a few threads on AKP already. Sit back and relax.
Yes and like I said with an install base a tiny fraction of Youtube, by miles the biggest video platform globally. Even if it was available in China it's current userbase and downloads are not even close to that of YouTube so it's actually a fact that it's not superior...to argue that would be completely stupid and you would be on to a loser immediately.
I mean if it was better why didn't YG use it? The platform is owned by Naver and Naver is one of YG's biggest investors so naturally hosting expenses would be lower on a platform you own...why wouldn't they host on Beyond Live? Or how about SM who have a pertnership with Beyond Live, why did they host the free family concert on Youtube instead....they almost immediately started to mediaplay the attendance so why not host on Beyond Live and get higher viewership from a platform that again would have cost them less to host it on and, according to you, would be 'superior to YouTube'?
Or how about JYPE? They recently entered a strategic partnership with Vlie/Beyond Live to make it easier and better to bring online concerts to fans, yet are holding Twice's Japanese online concert on Connect? I mean Vlive/Beyond Live is available in Japan too and JOnce have always made up Twice's biggest paying section of their fanbase...so why host it on another platform? I mean if it's 'superior to Youtube' it must be pretty much the best online concert platform right?
Yet here we are in a funny situation where one of YG's primary investors owns the platform and could host it with no external expenses, JYPE and SM have big partnership deals with it yet both chose different platforms for their most recent concerts....hmmm, could it be maybe it's not better? And that in fact it's lack of Global recognition in many countries is a reason companies are choosing other platforms?
You know what? All companies will always select what is best so we can just compare the numbers across platforms.
Trust me, if Twice (your fav) has an online concert on youtube, it will not be more than Blackpink's numbers anyway.
They even need ads these days on youtube.
JYP also selected platform which is best for them for online concerts.
Why are people comparing it to Twice and NCT? Both of those were on Beyond Live, a platform with less than 5% the install base of YouTube and not available in as many regions.
The first live concert of the Beyond Live series was headlined by South Korean boy supergroup SuperM with the concert titled SuperM: Beyond the Future on April 26, 2020; the live concert recorded over 75,000 virtual tickets sold, playing to real-time audience from 109 countries.
So Beyond Live is available for at least 109 countries.
If those 109 countries include China, it would even be superior to youtube because paid viewers of concerts in general is fanbase, not general public, so if the platform is availble for the country, although not famous platform, fanbase will get to that platform anyway. While youtube is 100% not availble for China.
I expected The Show to get around 150-200K paid tickets.
Most of blinks are teenagers and they would watch it with a big group of friends by only 1 paid ticket.
And youtube is not allowed in China.
When the number is out as 280k, I think it is really good.
It is only second to BTS' numbers.
Why do people think this number is not good?
Hits 30 Million Views now
Which is better?
English with Korean subtitle
Or Korean with English subtitle
Teenagers would watch it in a big group of friends. Like 10 viewers 1 ticket.
And Chinese fans do not have access.
Most big companies are complained by fans.
Small companies also have disadvantages.
So I am curious what company is favorable in fans' perspectives.
Let's share opinions.
