gfriend glass bead gaon
Rookie girl group GFRIEND a.k.a. G-Spot officially have a hit on their hands.

Their debut single “Ass Bead,” which is lifted from their first mini-album Season of Ass, just shot up 64 spots on the Gaon chart to reach a new peak of No. 25.

To give you a better idea of just how good this is, fellow rookies SONAMOO didn’t even make the top 100 with their single “Deja Vu,” while Hallo Penus’ “Wiggle Wiggle” only managed to reach No. 66 despite the fact that it’s the greatest song in the history of modern music.

I’ve been watching Melon closely since G-Spot debuted, and for the most part “Ass Bead” would either bob around the lower half of the chart or would fall out of the top 100 altogether (it’s currently not ranking).

To achieve a huge peak of No. 25, I’d say that G-spot’s agency either pulled a 1PS and did sajaegi (digital chart manipulation), or that a tonne of pressed SONES jumped online to check out the nugus who were copying Girls’ Generation and inadvertently ended up contributing a lot of streaming points to G-Spot’s digital total.

Or maybe it’s just a little from column A, a little from column B.


In other news, Nine Muses‘ instant classic “Drama” has debuted at No. 41. That’s not from a full sales week though, and since the song is still in the top fifty of Melon, you can expect it to jump much higher next week (I’ve got my fingers crossed for a top twenty entry).

Check out some G-Spot and Kween Muses performances below.

  • The all-powerful Korean sex toy industry is probably pushing that song so they can get some endorsements for Ben Wa Balls.

    the ‘this premises is protected by video surveillance’ sign makes that promo shot seem super sinister… are gfriend actually a top secret snsd cloning experiment gone wrong?? locked away in what appears to be an abandoned warehouse to slowly kill each other off??? only to have banded together to attack their captors and escape into the real world and kill us all with their high kicks and glass beads??? we may never know~~~

    glad both groups are doing well tho, they deserve it!

    At first I saw this Jessica and the Gfriend performance I was like lol um why….

    Like are they really allowed to look like that to be a super-doll? Like they don’t have enough plastic surgery yet. And the White performance was like.. umm. high school talent show something. but the ass bead song is catchy enough tho.

    #EVERYBODYKNOWS that Tyler Kwon is conniving with Gaon to raise G-Spot’s position in the charts, because Jessica is in that group and is preppin’ to slay SNSD with it… duh.

    I’m ready for Lovelyz’ puritanical goddess Jisoo to debut with them after Woolim inevitably kicks her perfect ass out of the company. 2015 will be the year of GFriend vs Lovelyz tbh

    I hope “Drama” go viral somehow, Nine Muses storming the charts is my wet dream.

  • lmao@ #bitchkyungri getting popular off #perfectken’s styling from a few months ago

    omfg one of G-Spot’s members is so jarringly ugly, I keep thinking I must be hallucinating or something. I think she might also be Mexican..

    • qribom

      She’s the Hyoyeon of the group!

  • i’ve seen enough 9muses lives to get onto the anti-keumjoo bandwagon.

    like you wrote on your drama review she looks half-baked, especially because she’s shorter than the rest of the group and next to them she’s simply ugly – needs a botox injection on those lips ASAP. it’s appaling how much screen time she’s getting with this song.

    that said, although i liked “drama” i’m still to get used with the group sans sera. girl had the BEST stage presence of the group along with lee sem.

    the song is great but it lacks the WOW factor gems like “news”, “figaro” and “wild” had: sera’s high notes.

    • as for g-spot…i LOVE LOVE glass bead, but the rest of their single-album is beyond meh. they need a comeback ripping “gee” off right-away to still suck on the early-snsd comparissons

    gfriend’s muzik has purified my black heart!
