But anyway – although it was impressive to see this term trending after the track release, who knew that its fifteen minutes of fame on Twitter would actually persevere for so long? In fact, “Bonamana” actually disappeared from the list two days ago only to reemerge yet again with strong fervor, where it sits even now as I type these words. Even the related term #SujuBeauty (“Beauty” is the translation of the Korean title of this track, 미인아) hit #3 on the list on Thursday.
Considering the fact that Twitter has well over twenty million users worldwide, that’s quite a bit of global publicity for both BONAMANA, especially since the Internet makes it so accessible for people to search up information about this track and Super Junior. Who knows – maybe SuJu’s gained some new fans simply through Twitter publicity alone.
Aside from Twitter, Super Junior has also racked up quite a number of views onYoutube, with over one million views on the official music video. When you add the views from fan-uploaded videos to that, that’s over two million hits on Youtube alone.
After the track release on May 10, the term BONAMANA was also topping search lists on Nate and Naver, and promptly generated results on Google’s ’suggestions’ list within hours.
Now all I need to know is what BANANA BONAMANA means, exactly… but in all seriousness, this is pretty impressive! Stay tuned for more on SuJu’s big return to the music scene.
