Boy band Super Junior scored their first win just a week after their comeback, bagging the K-Chart award for their new song, “Bonamana,” on KBS TV program “Music Bank” on May 21.
It was a landslide win for Super Junior, garnering 14,720 points against group Hot Potato, which racked up 7,727 points. The K-Chart winner was selected based on digital music downloads, viewer preference, CD sales, and air time.
In his acceptance speech, leader Leeteuk said, “Thank you very much for giving us this great award even though we came back only last week.”
He also mentioned Kibum, Kangin, and Hangeng, members of the boy band who were not part of the “Bonamana” album due to personal reasons.
“We really miss you,” Leeteuk said of the three.
The albums of Super Junior continue to dominate not only in South Korea but in the Philippines as well.
Super Junior released their new and fourth album “Bonamana” last May 13, and in just eight days, it sold 95,359 copies on online music downloading site Hanteo.
In addition, the album’s version B has sold 21,695 copies on Hanteo. As of May 20, the album sold 117,054 copies on Hanteo alone. The music chart also showed that the album’s versions A and B are at No. 1 and 2.
Even before it was released, “Bonamana” got 198,485 in preorders, making the album one of the bestselling this year.
In the Philippines, Super Junior’s 2007 and second album “Don’t Don” zoomed to the top of the charts in two music stores in the Philippines.
The album was released in the country as requested by Filipino fans.
This is Super Junior’s fourth No. 1 album in the country, the only Korean act to achieve such feat so far. The boy band’s “Sorry Sorry” album reached gold status when it was released in the Philippines.
The CD contains 14 tracks including the carrier single “Don’t Don,” “Marry U,” and “Midnight Fantasy.” The DVD includes videos of the making of the music video and interviews with the members.
