MBLAQ's G.O Exposes Music Chart Manipulators

According to G.O., starting around the year 2010, there were some singers who immediately ranked no. 1 on the charts every time they released a song.

“In order for them to hit no. 1, there has to be that many people who are waiting for that singer and the song, but statistically speaking, it just wasn’t possible for those certain singers to have that many people waiting for them.” ㅡ G.O.

On the other hand, there were some groups who were extremely popular but when the made a comeback they weren’t able to reach no. 1 in the charts let alone the top 50.
“These are the singers who people actually waited for and who had endless comments on each article written about them…but they weren’t able to reach the charts.” ㅡ G.O.

Because of the strange phenomena, people began to get suspicious and rumors of chart manipulation began spreading. It was during this time when these so-called “chart manipulators” visited G.O.’s agency.

“If you pay us $375,000 USD, we’ll rank your singer no.1 on the charts for one month.” ㅡ Chart manipulators
G.O.’s agency rejected the offer but what he heard from one of the 2PM members was even more surprising.

“At the time, we were sharing a waiting room with 2PM and one of the members told me, ‘Hey G.O. guess what? A person came to our company and said he would manipulate charts for us for a month if we spend $500,000~$600,000 USD.'” ㅡ G.O.

These chart manipulating businesses apparently block domestic traffic servers and control them from abroad making it difficult to track.
In addition, there were apparently very famous artists who were rumored to have used these types of services to gain advertisements, fans, events, drama castings, etc.

G.O. emphasized that people generally don’t even get a chance to listen to great artists because many businesses such as shopping malls or cafes usually just play the top 100 songs on the chart. He added that he feels it’s unfortunate that such systems exist in the world of entertainment.

“I’m sharing this with you guys simply because I feel that it’s too bad.” ㅡ G.O.

Hey guys it’s MaeLyn! It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these so let’s see if I remember how to do it! I took a break from Vingle during the last term and it’s already changed a lot! I turned 23 in June and I’ve been in kpop since 2015, my first group was BigBang but I fell out of love with them a couple years ago. My ult group is and always will me B.A.P 😢. My ult bias is none other than Mr. Jung Daehyun. I’m super excited for SuperM’s debut because I love all the groups in it. Plus I can’t wait to be wrecked by the group that’s 3 biases and the rest bias wreckers! My biases in SuperM are Baekhyun (who I’ll be representing), Taeyong, and Ten! The groups I stan and their respective biases are: BTS- Jin Block B- U-Kwon GOT7- JB B.A.P- Daehyun VIXX- N Seventeen- Hoshi, Woozi Astro- MJ EXO- Chanyeol, Baekhyun Day6- Jae SHINee- Key Monsta X- Minhyuk, Wonho 24K- (used to be Cory but he left and no one else has claimed me yet) Cross Gene- Shin Hotshot- Junhyuk NCT- Ten, Taeyong, Taeil, Jungwoo Pentagon- Hui, Hongseok, Yeo One Stray Kids- Felix Victon- Seungwoo Nu’est- Minhyun, Ren SF9- Inseong, Jaeyoon, Taeyang, Chani ATEEZ- Hongjoong I’ve been president of B.A.P, VIXX, Hotshot, Astro, and 24K communities and editor on NCT, Pentagon, Ateez, Wanna One, and Cross Gene!

KPOP LOOK ALIKE (MALE EDITION)
Okay guys and girls. I know there are many many doppelganger** out there. But this is solely based on my opinion. These are my thoughts on who looks a like for male Kpop idols. I am just naming a few, and some may be more than 2 people. And, yes, it's a long list. Please read through it lol or go at least go through the pictures. Pretty please? ** Doppelganger - an apparition or double of a living person. B.A.P DAEHYUN & GOT7 JR Gosh, now I know another reason why one is my bias and the other is my bias wrecker! BTOB MINHYUK & BTS JUNGKOOK This is completely my opinion! I know a lot of people say they don't look a like. But for them I got them so confused! Even though I was a BTOB fan before BTS, I still got them confused. My sister laughed at me a lot because of it lol BLOCK B ZICO & WINNER SEUNG YOON Allkpop or Koreaboo (one or the other) brought my attention to Zico and Seung Yoon. I'm not a huge WINNER fan so I don't really know the members but Zico and Seung Yoon do look alike. B1A4 BARO & VIXX RAVI & WINNER MINO I was surprised at Ravi. I didn't think he looked like either Baro or Mino until Google lol. Also, guess who's who is the 4th picture! Lol I got so confused! EXO-K BAEKHYUN & BTS V Widely known to look a like. I don't even need to describe anything lol SUPER JUNIOR SUNGMIN & B1A4 SANDEUL They're just the cutest little puppies ever! Even though one's married already. RAIN (BI) & 2PM JUNHO & MBLAQ LEE JOON Well, damn. I was pretty shocked at how much Lee Joon looks like Rain. But I always thought that Junho and Rain looked alike. FT ISLAND HONGKI & MBLAQ MIR Another popular look alike. I can see why though. K.WILL & BIGBANG DAESUNG Lol I cracked up on this one. Idk why :') BEAST JUNHYUNG & BTOB ILHOON I didn't think they looked alike until I started reading some comments saying that they do. INFINITE SUNGYEOL & EXO-M KRIS & CROSS GENE TAKUYA I, personally, didn't think Kris and Sungyeol look very much alike. It wasn't until I saw a photo of Kris upside down looking like Sungyeol. SHINEE ONEW & SONG JOONG KI & LEE WOO-GEON Lmao, when I first watched Sassy Go Go I got really confused. I thought Lee Woo-Geon was Onew for the first like 2 episodes. H.O.T KANGTA & SUPER JUNIOR SIWON & SUPER JUNIOR-M ZHOUMI & EXO-K SUHO & EXO-M TAO I was kinda if-y about this one. I didn't know if Tao and Suho fitted along with Siwon, Kangta and Zhoumi. But I guess? B.A.P HIMCHAN & IKON BOBBY Okay, I also, didn't think they looked a like until BAP came back lol. But now I can see the similarities. U-KISS KEVIN & TEEN TOP CHUNJI For the longest time ever, I always got confused with Kevin and Chunji. Lol, I think it is because I discovered them at the same time. PARK BO-GUM & UP10TION WOOSHIN This tripped me out! I'm a HUGE Park Bo-Gum fan and when I saw Wooshin. I was like "OMGT**!" ** MADTOWN's newest song called "OMGT", Oh My God, Thanks NU'EST REN & SEVENTEEN JEONGHAN Bruhhhhh, do I even have to say it? Everyone [(who's a SEVENTEEN fan (and maybe NU'EST fan)] know that they look alike. SUPER JUNIOR HEECHUL & SEVENTEEN JUN No words for this one. Both sides just has to acknowledge it lol also, Heechul's good at Chinese so he can easily have a conversation with Jun. BTS SUGA & SEVENTEEN WOOZI Tripper here again! When SEVENTEEN first came out we all thought Woozi was a Suga baby. Who can deny it! They look so alike! Also, thei swag runs deep in their family lol. Woozi must've got it all from his daddy Suga and Mommy CL. ___________☆♡~☆♡~☆♡~☆♡☆__________ Sorry for not having as much photos and idols as I wished for. I was limited space. But thanks for stopping by and looking at this card! 여러분 화이팅!!! 사랑해요!!!
