In the wilderness of K-Pop, the harsh realities of Idol-dom floppage are only escaped by a rare few. These few are largely made up of members of Girls' Generation and HyunA cranking out solos for the top dog companies & maintaining their positions as national treasures - look how they mock the endless batch of embarrassments newcomers: For the brave girls ladies of South Korean music joining together into an all lip-syncing, hair-flicking (probably cutesy these days) band is the only way to try and snatch some fan chants at M! Countdown before the next 15-strong teen heart-throb boyband comes on stage and you're forgotten. Well maknaes & visuals of PJ, NOT ANYMORE. We're about to give the under-appreciated girl groups of K-Pop their time in the spotlight via a two-stage singles deathmatch... What do you think about that L.A. top-tiers? ______________________________________________ WHO'S ENTERING THE ARENA? Geez and is it any wonder with some of these community college logo designs conjured up by their company's toiler cleaner? These 20 23 bands represent those groups that only match their level of perseverance with their ability to flop. Hard. For years and years... They are: April // BESTie Brave Girls // ChoColat CLC // Dal*Shabet Fiestar // Hello Venus Laboum // Melody Day Nine Muses // Oh! My Girl Rainbow // RaNia Spica // Stellar Tahiti // WANNA.B Wa$$up // 4TEN [25/08] EDIT: We have 3 new competitors into the ring! Ladies Code // Purfles // SONAMOO _________________________________________________________________ So how does this giant cat-fight of Korean proportions begin? How does one reach the lofty heights of a Top 10 placing in a chart for the very first time? Here's how it all works: $ There will be 6 heats to decide which 54 songs make the final rate-off. $$ Math geeks - that means 9 songs per heat go through. $$$ Each heat features a collection of songs by (loosely) grouped bands (2-5 per Heat). Your job for these heats, giver of attention & breaker of dreams, is to RANK the songs in each heat from best to worst (1st being best, then 2nd, 3rd e.t.c) via direct message to yours truly. Meaning there are no scores or commentary revealed yet until the Final. This will give everyone extra listens & more time to sharpen those knives for scoring the songs that robbed your faves, plus bump up the tension as to who is in the lead/flailing desperately along. Details of the Heats, with all the song links, and the deadline for the rankings can be found below. If anything seems confusing/incorrect, just holler & i'll clear it up. 행운을 빕니다 플롭 별 haeng-un-eul bibnida peullob byeol!
