Top 3 K-Pop Songs That Appeared Out Of Nowhere & Blew Up On The Charts

You never know when a song will blow up and take the music scene by a storm.

Especially when some artists were fairly unknown during their earlier days. Before attaining their current popularity and status, some K-Pop artists’ futures were unclear. However, their songs managed to catch the attention of music listeners through one way or another.

Below are the top three.

 

EXID – UP&DOWN

Two years after their official debut, girl group EXID released their most successful single ‘UP&DOWN’ in August of 2014. But as fans would know, it wasn’t an instant success. In fact, the girl group was close to calling it quits before member Hani’s clip of performing UP&DOWN suddenly went viral and shot the song to the very top of the charts.

 

Bolbbalgan4 – Galaxy

After appearing on Yoo HeeChul’s Sketchbook, a popular music TV show, their single Galaxy gave them songwriter duo an immense momentum that lead to the prominent fame that they enjoy today.

 

GFriend – Me Gustas Tu

Talk about terrible luck when it starts raining on the day of your performance. Well in GFriend’s case, it actually turned out to be quite possibly one of the best things that ever happened to them. Member YuJu fell while performing but got right back up and enthusiastically danced away harder than before, which left a smile on the viewers’ faces. After that, Me Gustas Tu started to gain more listeners.

I’m an ARMY and still I don’t think all has to be about BTS, I enjoy other groups, yes BTS is my favorite group, but I understand that not all is about them, and some fans have to learn that

I agree. Im an ARMY, but even i get pissed off when I see so many articles about BTS. Not everything is about them. They fully desreve the fame they are enjoying. But other groups also desreve spotlight. And now a days, BTS is only used to gain views but these article publishers…
