  2. OMO… BEAST must be the 1st.. -_-
    hehehe~

  3. CN Blue is a joke. Just like secret and zea.
    at least f(x), mblaq and beast have some real talent.

  4. MBLAQ love u and i am so proud of them.. the best boyband ever..they’re talented so real🙂

  5. MBLAQ & F(x) Fighting !!!

  6. To me MBLAQ >> BEAST. the beast boys are cute and adorable but MBLAQ has better music and they are better prepared talents-wise.

    C.N. Blue is definitely a strong newcomer as well, but somehow, they lack stage presence. That is something they must work on. This weakness is especially prominent during their “love” performances :O :O nevertheless they produce excellent music and i absolutely adore yung hwa and jong hyun.

    As for the girlgroups, I’d say f(X) too because the rest are simply too lousy to be compared with :S

    • Not really, if you think about it, Beast has 3 members with such great vocals, its unbelievable. Yo Seob, Ki Kwang & Hyuseung sing really well.

  7. Although MBlaq has been successful, I think Beast and CN Blue have the edge. I’ll f(x) their props even though they havent been getting the recognition I think they deserve.

  8. SECRET!

    I agree with this ^^.

  9. where in earth is 4minute?
    i guess they’re not rookies anymore :p

  10. i’m so happy that ZE:A is 6th place!! At least they get some kind of recognition! I love them!

    Congrats to MBLAQ! I think they truly deserve it! I love Y. Such a great song! No lie! ^_^

  11. Pretty accurate list if you look at it in terms of most popular newcomer. MBLAQ and f(x) are definately the most popular.
    Music chart wise I think CN Blue would be number one seeing as both their title tracks and mini albums are doing really well. Followed by BEAST and then f(x) with the success of NuABO which I think is still charting quite well. I think it’s their most successful single so far, but I may be wrong.
    MBLAQ’s songs from what ive seen on the charts aren’t very strong on the rankings but then again, I dont really pay attention to them so I may be wrong again lol

    I think the best newcomers for the second half of 2010 may be Miss A from the amount of attention they’ve been receiving and how well their song is doing on the charts. Then in second place Sistar? Hmm I wonder, time will tell though🙂

  12. Woo yeah, congrats F(x)!!

  13. I would choose C.N Blue as the best newcomer for this first half of the year ! I really MBLAQ but C.B Blue did a better job and deserves the title !

  14. BEASSSTTTTT

  15. why is MBLAQ, Beast f(x) is still newcomer when they debuted last year? C.N Blue is the only one in the list i think debuted this year.

  16. Base on popularity, i think the list is fine.
    Base on music quality, cnblue should be #1 (i’m a loner and love did both reach #1)

  17. I’m an A+, so I’m super proud of the MBLAQ boys!

  18. I like mblaq, I really do but I agree with others that CN Blue or Beast deserve a higher ranking just based on the quality of the music and performances those two groups have done in comparison to mblaq. I see all the potential in the world in mblaq but they really need better songs. But as for the list as a whole I completely agree. I really like Secret and wish they had more popularity since they are really talented.

  19. CN Blue & Beast for me..

  20. congratz to mblaq. although i think cnblue deserves higher ranking. but congrats to all groups. mblaq cnb beast fx zea secret. they worked hard!

  21. i don’t get it did they debuted last year so they are not newcomers no more?

  22. come to malaysia, cn blue!

  23. a good list! doesnt seem to be too O.o! and stuff

  24. OLLEH!
