Woody faces sajaegi accusations after 'Fire Up' takes #1 on 'Inkigayo' and music charts


Singer Woody is facing sajaegi accusations for "Fire Up."

Around 3 pm KST on February 11, "Fire Up" placed #1 on major music charts including MelonBugsOlleh MusicGenie Music, and Soribada. The song was also #3 on Naver Music and Mnet Music's real-time charts. 

In addition, a day earlier on February 10, "Fire Up" managed to win #1 on SBS' 'Inkigayo' with a total score of 5,790. He received zero points in the album sales and on-air category but received over 5,500 points in digital single sales. 


Netizens became suspicious of Woody's success, especially since "Fire Up" is unfamiliar to many. It's also claimed his rise on the music charts was abrupt, similar to the singers like Nilo and Shaun who were accused of sajaegi in the past. 

Comments stated, "Congratulations. The system made the #1 for you," "Who the hell is Woody?" "Nobody knows who he is," "The song became #1 overnight," "The only Woody I know is from 'Toy Story," "Sajaegi everywhere," "The song is not even that good but it's annoying because it keeps getting #1."

Soo every time a new or relatively unknown artist beats a big named idol group, win a music show or reach number 1, they’re suddenly cheating? Korean music doesn’t just surround KPOP idol groups and bands you know. Why can’t we just be happy for those who worked hard and won. Instead, they have to feel bad because they beat an idol. Can’t get over watching momoland win yet another music show but look sad about it or Shaun basically hiding away after he was accused. And both them and Nilo were cleared
