Park Bom’s New Single Sweeps Korean Music Charts


Park Bom’s latest single, “Don’t Cry,” has swept all Korean music charts lately, ranking #1 on real time music charts, as well as daily and weekly ranks. “Don’t Cry” topped all eight major Korean music charts, including Melon, Dosirak, Bugs, Mnet, Cyworld, Naver, Daum, and Soribada, in the real time, daily, and weekly categories, as it received the nickname “Perfect All Kill” for dominating the charts.

“Park Bom recorded an ‘All Kill’ with her new single, ‘Don’t Cry,’” YG Entertainment told local media. “It’s become extremely difficult to maintain the top position for a long time in today’s quickly changing music market that is really controlled by online downloads. Each online chart has a different evaluation process so it’s uncommon to see one track dominate all charts, just as Park Bom’s ‘Don’t Cry’ has done.” Her latest single has also ranked atop the ringtone and mobile music charts.

Starting with Park Bom’s new single, 2NE1 is expected to release a new single every three weeks. You can check out Soompi’s preview of “Don’t Cry” here and the MV + storyline here. YGE and Park Bom continue to impress with their new tunes and it makes me wonder what 2NE1 has in store for us. Rumor has it they’re coming back with a completely different sound but we’ll have to wait another two weeks to find out. We’ll keep you posted for any updates!
