Everyone knew this girl group song at the time but it was never at the top of the charts and never won on a music show


The K-pop industry is highly competitive, just as it is in any other industry. In fact, it might be more competitive, with dozens of idol groups debuting almost every day. 

In this competitive market, these idol artists must impress with catchy songs. However, that does not mean the group will be able to stand at the top, unfortunately. Even if the song might be widely known to many, there are groups who are not able to top the music charts or any music shows.

This was the case for Rainbow's song "A," released back in 2010. According to one netizen, the song was widely known to many but was not able to top the music charts and did not win any music shows.

Just as the netizen had claimed, other Korean netizens stated they did recognize the song but did not realize it belonged to the group Rainbow, let alone the song's title. Netizens commented, "I did hear this song but this is the first time I knew about the title and the artist, lol. I do remember hearing this song everywhere," "This is a hit song!" "I remember the song and the dance was really well known too," "I never knew this song was from Rainbow, lol," "I know this song, it's so good," "Oh wow, I didn't know it never got number 1," "This is one of the few hit songs from Rainbow," "Everyone knew this song ten years ago," "I really liked this song," and "This song is so exciting."

This song and so many other Rainbow songs should have won the music shows but didn't. They had so many bops!

Another one that comes to mind is "Love is Energy" by Chi-Chi. So many people knew the song and loved it. It gave us the iconic "hand blender dance," but it didn't win anything.

Rainbow had so many other good songs too! It’s a shame that they weren’t as successful. To Me is still one of my favorites.
