Well, now this is just all sorts of fucked up.
Does a car accident prior to album promotion result in early sales success?
In July, on their way for a shoot for their third album “Bad Love” [aka Screwed-up Love, Awful Love], the group Taesabiae was in a sudden car accident and had to discontinue their promotional activities. But recently, their song “Doesn’t Hurt Despite the Pain” is attracting attention. …
SONG OF THE DAY
Monday Kiz – “Lonely Soul” (featuring Girl Friends). You may remember that not too long ago, Monday Kiz was also in an accident, and it didn’t seem to do them any harm. They had to stop work on their upcoming album and choose instead to release a digital single, but they did get publicity when other celebrities extended their sympathies and even agreed to appear in their music video for free. Whether or not publicity and sales were the intent of the gesture, it was the effect.

Taesabiae (pronounced tessa-bee-eh), Jang Yoon Jung
One source said, “It’s because their third album has raced to the top of all sorts of charts within four days of its release.”
“Bad Love” made it to third place on Bugs within two days, tenth place on Soribada, the top 100 on Nate Caller Ringtones, etc., in a sudden flash.
The Wonder Girls also scored big their album after a car accident and swept the nation with their “Tell Me sensation.” Jang Yoon Jung narrowly escaped an accident and received lots of love and attention.
For this reason, there’s even a saying in a part of the entertainment industry: “If a pop singer has a car accident, they’ll score big.”
As for Taesabiae, they explain, “We consider ourselves lucky in this accident. We thank all the fans who’ve shown love for ‘Bad Love.’”
Now, it’s one thing to note a correlation or an oddity. It’s quite another (stupid, idiotic, dangerous) thing to draw correlative values between CAR ACCIDENTS and SUCCESS.
