1. [+387, -16] Ballads are great to listen to in the fall but you have to give credit where it's due. Park Hyo Shin and Im Chang Jung are hitting #1 in their own rights. Both of their songs would've hit #1 had they been released in any other season.
2. [+244, -13] The song's just good in its own right..
3. [+183, -9] Park Hyo Shin's ballads are a must listen
4. [+145, -11] Glad to have Park Hyo Shin back, please put out more great songs~~~
5. [+125, -8] Naul's 'Memories of the Wind' was released in the fall of 2012 too..
6. [+31, -3] Don't put down idols... there are so many of them who are not only visually pretty but talented too. Gone are the days in the past where singers could get away with looks and luck only... and Park Hyo Shin is dominating the charts now off of his merit alone, not just because it's a ballad and it's fall
7. [+20, -2] It's time for our ears to rest too with some peaceful music
8. [+10, -0] Tired of hip hop now... all of the songs are similar styles
9. [+24, -5] We're not just blindly hating idol music. I know there are a few good songs among them. However, you have to admit that it's boring when there's nothing but idol music on the charts. I wish it was like the early 2000s when charts had a mix of idol, hip hop, rock, ballad, and R&B music.
10. [+21, -4] It's not necessarily because it's fall, just that Park Hyo Shin and Im Chang Jung are so dominating in their own right..
11. [+16, -3] Ballads are perfect for fall!!
12. [+10, -1] It seriously feels like it's been years since we've had a non-idol and a ballad at the top of the digital charts ㅋㅋ so good to see
