BIGBANG 'Still Life' rules over charts and music shows, fans say ‘Nation's fav song’
When it comes to popularity, BIGBANG is one of those K-pop groups that will never go out of style. The contribution of the second-generation YG Entertainment boy group will be unrivaled and recent stats from domestic charts prove why the boys will always be Number 1. BIGBANG finally ended their four year long hiatus with their comeback song 'Still Life' on April 5 that received a lot of love and came to be an overnight success.
BIGBANG's comeback song topped various charts like Bugs, Melon, Flo, Genie, Vibe and more immediately after it was dropped online, and now, more than a fortnight after its release, the song still sits atop the charts showing why BIGBANG is the unrivaled boy group in K-pop. Not only in terms of charting, but it also shocked K-pop fans by taking not one but four music show wins for 'Still Life' despite not having any performances for the song.
BIGBANG bags four music show wins for 'Still Life'
Fans of BIGBANG are thrilled as it was announced that BIGBANG officially bagged their fourth music show win for 'Still Life' on the music show 'Music Core' on April 23, despite not having a single performance for the song. BIGBANG released the song as a digital single and did not aim to promote the song at any music show. Despite this, due to the popularity of the single as well as the dedication from fans, the song 'Still Life' has now bagged its new music show win despite no perfromance.
With the new win for 'Still Life', the total number of music show win achieved by BIGBANG has become 97, which is overwhelming for any K-pop boy group. BIGBANG is now the only second gen K-pop group with the most number of music show wins in the history of the genre while they are only the third boy group after BTS at Number 1 and EXO at Number 2 among all K-pop boy groups in terms of their music show wins despite being on a four-year-long hiatus.
