For the past week I have been trying to figure out why SNSD are performing so badly on the music charts for a number of reasons.. Since the release of Holiday Night SNSD have been trending at no.1 on the real time searches of Melon and Naver continuously. The netizens have expressed love for this comeback and SNSD on articles covering the girls. SNSD are running away on fan voting polls for fan votes like Show Champion. SNSD's performances on music shows have been enjoying the highest views on the official uploads by M Countdown, Music Core and Inkigayo for this past week. They've enjoyed the highest first week sales of their entire career. Surpassing The Boys in 4 days, and selling 90K+ in their first week. The only other girl group who enjoys these first week sales are Twice and we all know just how well they do on the charts. (no receipts) but according to fanaccs, Holiday is being played everywhere throughout Korea right now. Their recent appearance on Knowing Bros is the highest ratings of all time for groups, and only 2nd behind Psy.... So what is going on? I'd understand if they were finding it difficult to stay in the Top 10 of Melon consistently. However Holiday has been hovering between #30 and #40 on Melon. How is this possible? How are SNSD doing so well in every other area besides on charts like Melon and Mnet? Is it really possible that they are being blocked because of some shady business behind the scenes? We've all heard the theory of CJ E&M pulling strings behind the scenes which are affecting SNSD. Could this be why SM have pulled the girls' promotions? Because there is a lot of shady shit going on behind the scenes that we don't know about.
