hiroonakamura Crazy_Dog Wednesday, March 1, 2017

but after 4-5 years, are there really that many new people around like that?

Crazy_Dog hiroonakamura Wednesday, March 1, 2017

yeah. there are probably ppl who were never introduced to certain artist

hiroonakamura Crazy_Dog Wednesday, March 1, 2017

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

Crazy_Dog hiroonakamura Wednesday, March 1, 2017

KD_san Monday, February 27, 2017

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.

How about Not Spring, love or cherry blossom by Iu and high4?

Crazy_Dog federick Monday, February 27, 2017

the song a hit but not compared to cherry blossom ending

eager_beaver Monday, February 27, 2017

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.

caitlinnolly Monday, February 27, 2017

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
