Once One Of Korea’s Most Popular Idols, She Begged Her Junior Idols To Help Her Newest Song Enter The Charts

She didn’t care about pride or image, she said her honest truth.

TARA‘s Hyomin made a comeback with her new solo track, titled “Allure” back in February 2019. Unfortunately, her new song didn’t see much success since its release.

Hyomin took promotions into her own hands by tweeting fan accounts of top charting idols, asking them to stream her songs too. She first asked fans streaming LOONA‘s “Butterfly”.

Congratulations. Please help me chart tooㅜㅜ #Hyomin #Allure #February20th6pm

— Hyomin

Then ask DREAMCATCHER fans to stream her song too.

#DREAMCATCHER, I support you. Please help me chart tooㅜㅜ #Hyomin #Allure #February20th6pm

— Hyomin

She confessed honestly that she was envious of her juniors’ chart rankings and asked MONSTA X fans to help her.

#MONSTAX I’m envious of your chart rankingㅜㅜ Congratulations. Please help me chart too..ㅜㅜ #Hyomin #Allure #February20th6pm

Lastly, she asked ITZY, to help “Allure” chart on the music sites. She also sneaked in her fanship for Ryujin!

#ITZY I’m a week late but I’m streaming your song. Please help me chart tooㅜㅜ #Hyomin #Allure #February20th6pm #ImPersonallyAFanOfRyujin

— Hyomin

After seeing her ask other idols’ fans to help her song succeed in the charts, many netizens and fans felt pity for her.

The pity comes from the fact that Hyomin used to be one of the most popular idols back during the early 2010’s when T-ARA ruled the charts with their hit songs like, “Roly Poly”, “Bo Peep Bo Peep”, “Lovey-Dovey” and more.

T-ARA used to sweep the charts and win multiple music show awards. During their peak era, they were even considered a rival of Girls’ Generation.

Seeing her latest song fail to even break into the Hot 100 charts appeared to have made Hyomin think of new ways to promote her song.

And her plans worked! “Allure” broke into Bug’s chart at #46 in its debut week! Perhaps Hyomin’s new tactic will become a precedent for new song promotions.
