New week and new top list from Bugs! I didn’t get any reactions to last week’s top 10 post, so the format remains for another week. Lots of new songs in the top this time!

Despite having been a duo since 2007, it was not until September 17 that Siamese released the first EP, Runner’s High. The duo’s female member was previously the vocalist of pop/rock act PB’s (remember them?) whereas the guy was a member of alternative/nu metal band Crow during the We Are Crow time. A setup with plenty of potential, and judging from this week’s chart they use it well.
The Jeonju based Cryim released its first digital single, called either Sweet Pop or I’m Cry (I’m not sure which…), September 22. Apparently many people misread the modern rock act’s name as “crime”, so the actual pronunciation [cri: m] is spelled out on the cover.
New hardcore punk act Under Place released its first single, 쿠데타의 불씨, on September 11. Can’t say I understand why – whether out of admiration or mocker – but from Naver it seems like so far they are most popular among FT Island antis.
