I'm a long time Pink Panda dating back to the "I Don't Know" days, so it's normal for me to love everything that A Pink puts out by default (with "Mr. Chu" at the top of the list and "Hush" at the bottom). However, it's nice that their latest classic, "LUV," is the kind of song that can be enjoyed by all pop fans, and not just those who are lucky enough to be part of A Pink's blessed and exclusive fandom like I am.
There's always one token cute act in K-pop that all the Western fans hate because dirty Westerners have never really experienced cute concepts beyond kiddie acts like The Wiggles and The Teletubbies, so almost everything that doesn't fit into the fierce or sexy concept category is instantly reviled. First it was Girls' Generation, then it was SECRET for a while, and now it's the almighty A Pink.
Korea is obsessed with random rankings, surveys, and polls. Most of it's just inane shit that isn't worth reading ("So-and-so voted the celebrity people most likely want to read a bedtime story to"), but I get a kick out of popularity rankings. The downside is that most of them are usually biased or uninformed, like the new 2014 Girl Group Popularity Ranking that Sports Chosun published today.
