Winter is fading and the weather is getting warmer. That means it's time to listen to Busker Busker's "Cherry Blossom Ending"!


It's becoming an annual ritual, the spring hit has once again risen to the top. On February 27, "Cherry Blossom Ending" ranked #1 on MelOn's real-time chart. 


The song included in Busker Busker's 1st album following their appearance in 'Superstar K3' was released in March of 2012. It became a must-listen track of the spring, and the hit has now topped the charts for 5 consecutive spring seasons.

In 2015, it was revealed that the composer/singer Jang Bum Joon earned a total of 4.6 billion KRW (approximately $4 million USD) from "Cherry Blossom Ending." The number is expected to have exceeded 5 billion KRW (approximately $4.4 million USD) this year. 


What a hit!

    it does feel odd though that they would be introduced randomly during the spring each year :D

    So he earns a million dollar a year from one song?! But the song is too good. Even though it has been a long time since it's release. The song is one of the evergreen songs which we will still listen for years in the future.

    Every spring to the top of the chart? That's a very interesting phenomenon. Koreans as a group seem to be very loyal to certain traditions.

    that's mad... i've never listened to the song and i've always wondered if the groups other songs EVER got any attention or if this was just an extremely lucky (well earning) one off
