It has been reported weeks ago that 2NE1 is already one of the rising Korean group in the Philippines and also the Wonder Girls. Now here is another proof that Kpop is getting popular in the small country of Philippines.
#3 Fire by 2NE1
#19 Nobody by Wonder Girls
#20 Sorry Sorry by Super Junior
From myxph.com, the official site of the largest local music channel in the country MYX, 2NE1, Wonder Girls and Super Junior have garnered their spots in the International Top 20 i.e., excluding songs from local artists. 2NE1’s current single “Fire” has been on the charts since last month and is going strong while the new entries “Nobody” and “Sorry Sorry” are slowly making their way to the top.
News has it that ABS-CBN company bought the rights to YG‘s music videos (and maybe other Entertainment companies from Korea e.g. SM or JYP) to air them on Philippine TV. I have seen 2pm’s Again & Again, Wonder Girls’ Nobody, 2NE1’s Lollipop and Fire, and Super JUnior’s Sorry Sorry being aired on Pop Myx (a segment showcasing the new and popular songs on the country).
