CNBLUE Reigns On Chinese Music Video Chart
Despite the conflict between Seoul and Beijing due to the on-going Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), Korean pop is still showing its influence in the region with its idols topping charts.
Yong Hwa, Jong Hyun, Min Hyuk and Jung Shin topped the music video section of YinYueTai, a popular Chinese music video sharing site with its song Between Us. CNBLUE ranked first at the Korean music section of Beijing-based online video platform iQiyi and music streaming site Kugou.
The band released its seventh extended play (EP) entitled ‘7°CN’ last March 20. It has also topped foreign charts in nine regions. Less than a day after its release, iTunes saw the band’s newest EP clinch the top spot of the Top 100 Music Album Chart in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
The members participated in the composition and writing of all six songs in the album. Leader Yong Hwa, once again, took charge of the group’s title song. Songs such as It’s You, Calling You, When I Was Young, Royal Rumble and Manito completed the album’s track list.
The music video for the title track was also released on March 20. CNBLUE is set to begin its live show promotions this week, starting with Mnet’s ‘M! Countdown’.
