snsd_230109_2

Group So Nyeo Shi Dae, 3 weeks into their no-performance on KBS MusicBank, has taken #1 position on the show for the 2nd consecutive week.

They were #1 on K Chart on the show this week, winning over Big Bang SeungRi‘s ‘Strong Baby’ and Gavy NJ’s ‘Love Story’. And this is their 2nd week of no-performance following their #1 position on the chart last week.

Makes me wonder how long this no-show thing will go on between SM and KBS.
