“Genie,” a new song released by Girls’ Generation two weeks ago, topped KBS-TV’s Music Bank Friday evening.
The flagship song of the girl group’s second mini-album competed with songs from 4minute and Seo Tae-ji.
“Genie” has swept various online music charts since its release June 25. It took just two weeks for Girls’ Generation, one of South Korea’s pop groups, to return to top both online and offline, after months of absence.
Upon being ranked top, the group’s members expressed their thanks to agency staffers, parents and fans on the stage.
Girls’ Generation has been shining in the local music market since its debut in 2007 with a string of success: “Into the World,” “Girls’ Generation,” “Kissing You,” “Baby Baby,” and “Gee.” “Gee,” in particular, ranked first for nine weeks in a row on KBS-TV’s Music Bank earlier this year.
The members of the group are Yoona, Tiffany, Yuri, Hyoyeon, Sooyoung, Seohyun, Taeyeon, Jessica and Sunny. (Korea Times)
