Much to my surprise, SNSD‘s “Lion Heart“ doesn’t seem to be doing great digitally, and it currently sits at #9 on Melon. This is odd because usually they’ll automatically vault to #1 like everything else they’ve released since like 2009.
Looks like SM had to resort to the sponsored 'recommended' slot to encourage people to buy it. @asianjunkiecom pic.twitter.com/fvc7D5v8NE

Why is it falling short now? Who knows. What we do know is that it can’t possibly be that maybe people didn’t like it or the multiple releases caused the fandom to lose motivation or the chart fucked up its numbers or whatever else. No no no, one SONE on (S)OneHallyu has it all figured out: it’s a government fucking conspiracy, man.
At first I thought this was sarcasm or something, and maybe it’ll still be played off as that later, but this reply sold it to me as at least partially based on true feelings.
I CAN’T THINK OF ANY REASON THE GOVERNMENT WOULD WANT TO DO THIS BUT IT MUST BE THEM SOMEBODY VALIDATE THIS FLOPPING
Does the reason this was all posted even matter at this stage? No. It’s hilariously absolutely glorious.
RLY MAKE U THNK
Bonus! Here’s a SONE who thinks SM Entertainment made that typo on purpose because a lion makes that sound and it’s … deep or something?
