So apparently dwango, a Japanese music download company, has a K-pop category for its ringtone download rankings, and to anybody with a brain, it would seem logical that Korean artists would dominate that chart. Well, apparently allkpop missed the memo, because they wrote it up like it was a fucking accomplishment.
Big Bang, KARA, Jang Geun Suk, & Super Junior rank top 5 on Japan’s dwango half-year ranking chart
dwango Mobile, a music download service primarily for Android smartphones, has just revealed its ringtone download ranking for the first half of 2012!
The original article on tokyohive was from the Japanese media, and it just reported the results of multiple dwango charts, so I guess somebody at allkpop decided that K-pop artists taking the top five spots on a … K-pop chart is somehow notable.

01. FANTASTIC BABY – BIGBANG
02. Crazy Crazy Crazy – Jang Geun Suk
03. Speed Up – KARA
04. Oppa, Opaa – SUPER JUNIOR DONGHAE & EUNHYUK
05. Opera – SUPER JUNIOR
It’s like making an Olympic Games only for Koreans, holding it in Japan, and then running a media story hyping up the fact that only Koreans won medals or something.
