From April~May, there would soon be an overcrowding of stars in the music industry. Beginning previously on the 7th from Rain, to Lee Hyo-ri who will release 4th album on the 13th. At the end of this month, 2PM will also be releasing their 2nd album, Son Dambi, SS501 will also be releasing their new album in upcoming May and meet with fans. From april~may, amidst the 5 representative singers who will be making a comeback, we got to know more about their drawbacks as well as tackling methods through the way we observe it as.

(others mentioned were Rain, Lee Hyo-ri, 2PM, Son Dambi)


Drawbacks: Undervalued domestic awareness versus unyielding immense fan support. Due to drama 'Boys over Flowers', Kim Hyun Joong whose popularity was boosted significantly, SS501 then unarguably became a top star in Asia regions. However, since they focus on overseas activities more, domestic awareness on them didn't grow deeper though. Fans too, are restricted to the new generation world only. They're recognized more as a famous group by looks only, more than being recognized for their songs.

Resolution: They're now focusing on producing the hit track for their upcoming album. Rather than designing a new generation's dance song for the sake of being in the core of performances, the new album would actually be filled with songs produced for enjoyment targeting at the majority audiences. Agency DSP has said, "Will carry out promotion activities with their music as the core, rather than to focus on visual" "Rather than having to do it through hook songs with catchy melody, we would instead strengthen their image as a vocalist group with strong vocal skills through the production of songs which would highlight mainly on the vocals. They would also be actively participating on music and variety programmes, this would thus certainly expand their fanbase" etc such opinions were revealed.

I have always considered SS501 to have great songs. Music-wise, their songs are really nice. I've said this before, music is more than just having a catchy tune, or an addictive beat, or wicked choreography. I think some people don't appreciate SS501 because they think they're just all looks. They're wrong. There's more to just "good looks" with our boys. They are great singers and their music have touched so many. Looking forward to the songs in their new album!

i truly disagree with the article.

truly, boys over flowers is just one of the reasons why they are successful. it's just one. and there are many other reasons why they reached the top. they have tons of hit songs ever since their debut years. and they have an impressive record in the kpop world.

ss501, fighting!

ps: i'm super anticipating for 501 day :)

The SS501 guys are lookers definitely.That is value added plus in the performing arts .They are multi talented ,have good songs,good exposure thanks to social media and their physical presence counts a lot specially abroad .As a result , artists are many times more appreciated outside their home base.I think ,that is alright because there will be less of the overcrowding syndrome or competition .What is important is to strengthen the fanbase abroad (From what I understand -fans consolidated their efforts on their own and DSP did not even promote as in the case of Thailand concert ).Artist Management companies should realize the importance of fans -the lifeblood of the industry and make the necessary arrangement .Ha, that will significantly boost fan power !But no,fans that are truly loyal will not take advantage -but will work cooperatively with their favorite artists as what has been happening .TRIPLE S PHILLIPINES and other TRIPLE S in other countries certainly know what I am referring to.They have done remarkably well and has elevated fandom to a higher level -my salute to all !

Anyone out there who knows where to get their albums here in Manila? Astrovision does not have them in their K-pop stands.

they really have strong vocal skills.the thing that i like the most about SS501 is,they have different vocal abilities.youngsaeng can sing really high pitch song.while jungmin can sing in low is hard to find a group like this nowadays. :)
