The Chosun Ilbo compiled a list consisting of three tiers on which girl group will dominate the Korean charts this year: the strong, the middle, and the weakest. Their list was based off of music portal’s Bugs and KBS Music Bank’s annual top charts last year, and also took into account stage presence, fan loyalty, their capabilities, management, and a track record of all their performances.
The year 2010 was the year of girl groups. More than 23 girl groups made their debut last year to try and take the top position. The fight for that position will most likely intensify this coming year as groups like Dal Shabet and 5dolls are already making their presence known to the public.
