Every week K-Town brings you a deeper analysis of the songs making moves on the K-Pop Hot 100 chart.
Hip-hop duo BAE CHI GI spend a second week atop the K-Pop Hot 100 with their rap ballad “Shower Of Tears” featuring female vocalist Ailee. The No. 1 spot for BAE CHI GI is an astoundingly noteworthy achievement for the veteran pair– comprised of Mu Woong and Tak–in their 15 year career.The duo officially debuted in 2005 with ”Nice to Meet You,” but were actually working together since 1999. “Showers Of Tears,” the title track (a.k.a. first single) to their mini-album “Vol.4 Part.2,” expresses the heartache of a breakup. K-pop fans are clearly loving the immaculate combination of relatable lyrics, gutting guitar, tango instrument bandonion (played by famous French artist Olivier Monoury), BAE CHI GI’s rhythmical rapping and Ailee’s pitch-perfect vocals. Though, the video does not feature Ailee but instead Yang Ji Won, member of rookie girl group SPICA. (SPICA’s “Painkiller” was Billboard.com’s No. 15 Best K-Pop Song of 2012)
Other notable moves come from Girls’ Generation (who congratulated Billboard on their new K-Town column) slipping to No. 5 (from No. 2) this week with “I Got A Boy,” just as the girls announced they will stop promoting on music programs after this week. As well as big rises from MFBTY (a supergroup created from K-pop veterans Tiger JK, Yoon Mi Rae [a.k.a. Tasha] and Bizzy) with their dance-rap single “Sweet Dream” racing from No. 40 to No. 13 just as the group finished a showcase at music industry event Midem. Additionally, female group Nine Muses earned the biggest hit of their career by far with their first Top 20 single with sensual jazz number “Dolls.”
On February 3, lots of pictures of the cast of SBS TV’s Running Man shooting the show in Macao were uploaded on Weibo and several online community boards in China. Among them, the pictures of Haha and Lee especially attracted a lot of attention.
In the pictures, Haha and Lee are standing next to each other. What attracts most people’s attention is their hands. Haha looks at Lee’s face and puts his hand on Lee’s hips first, and Lee puts his hand on Haha’s hips as if he’s taking revenge on him.
People who saw the pictures responded: “What are they doing?” “They’re so funny.” “Are they attacking each other now?” “Lee Gwang Soo’s hands are so big.”
The episode of Running Man shot in Macao and Hanoi, Vietnam, will air on February 17.
On February 7, a spokesperson for Jo reported, “Jo In Sung tore up his hand when he was shooting the drama series Wind Blows in Winter and got thirteen stitches. However, he’s not seriously injured. He’s still shooting.”
On February 4, Jo hurt his hand while he was shooting a scene of him hitting a wall. He immediately went to a nearby hospital and came back to the set to finish the rest of the shooting after getting medical treatment.
In the series, Jo plays the role of Oh Soo, a professional gambler. Oh Soo was abandoned by his parents when he was a little child and was also dumped by his first love. Because of the painful memories, he lives a life without sincerity.
Wind Blows in Winter is a melodrama series, written by Noh Hee Kyung and directed by Kim Kyu Tae. It will give a message about the value of humanity and love. It stars Jo In Sung, Song Hye Kyo, Kim Beom, and A Pink’s Eunji and will start airing on February 13.
They topped the chart for the first week of February with their new song, “Here Then Gone,” beating Bae Chi Gi’s “Tear Shower” and CN Blue’s “I’m Sorry.”

Starship Entertainment, Sistar 19′s agency, reported, “Sistar 19 haven’t released a new song for a long time after they released ‘Ma Boy,’ but many people are loving their new song. We really appreciate. Because a lot of singers are releasing new material often to receive more attention, it’s just very surprising to us.”
Sistar 19 topped such major charts as Melon, Bugs, Cyworld, and Soribada with the song, which was released on January 31. Sistar’s new song made a big hit last year, and Sistar 19′s new song made a big hit this year.
Sistar 19, formed by Sistar’s Bora and Hyo Lyn, received a lot of attention when “Ma Boy” made a big hit in 2011. The group shows off an innocent yet sexy image that symbolizes 19-year-old girls.
Bora and Hyo Rin show off a powerful, sexy dance for the song. The choreography for the song uses chairs. Because the chairs are transparent, they’re not visible on stage.
“Here Then Gone” is a sad hip-hop number about love that blooms and falls like flowers. It describes feelings of a girl who becomes a real woman after experiencing break-up.
On February 6, the U.S. Billboard reported about MFBTY on its K-pop column segment K-Town, which was newly created on its website last month, under the title of “MFBTY Spread Korean Hip-Hop in France.”

The Billboard introduces Tiger JK and Yoon as, “The Korean version of Jay-Z and Queen of Hip-Hop.” About MFBTY, the Billboard says, “They fascinated all critics and reporters who attended MIDEM with their energetic performance and aggressive rap. They made them move their hands and heads and proved that music can transcend the limits of language. Whether or not they intended, MFBTY solidified the Korean Hip-Hop as a firm genre that can be welcomed anywhere in the world.”
MFBTY’s first single, Sweet Dream, is currently number thirteen on the U.S. Billboard K-pop Hot 100.
