It’s an idol group explosion this week, as many idol groups came together for special episodes of various TV shows for the ongoing Chuseok festivities.
The ‘2010 Idol Star Dance Battle’ was recently broadcast, where many popular groups such as missA, SECRET, 4minute, After School, BEAST, MBLAQ, U-Kiss, INFINITE, 2AM, and IU, took to serious challenges. On the other hand, the funniest of gag women, Jung Juri, Kim Shin Young, and Kim Jisun, battled it out with a vast range of parody performances.
We have already passed the half way point of 2010, and it is time again to summarize the top k-pop songs in the last six months, based on their performances on our weekly SOOMPI chart. Just like the year end ranking, the half year ranking is calculated based on each songs’ accumulated weekly scores, plus factors including its chart position, its competition level on each week, and a seasonal adjustment to award songs which is released later in the year.
