Top 20 – May week 4

SG Wannabe’s "내사람" (Partner for life) is No. 1 for the 4th straight week, scoring exactly 100 points more than their lastest challanger, Kim Jong Kook’s "편지" (Letter). The song is still gaining in scores after 4 week’s at No. 1. Kim Jong Kook’s song is probably hurt by the fact that he cannot perform the song due to army service. But even without that, it is still quite impressive for the singer who swept all the Daesangs from 3 major TV networks last year (he also won our soompi Daesang).

3 new songs this week, including the follow up hits by See Ya and Fly to the Sky (3rd single already!). See Ya’s new song "사랑하기 때문에" (Because of Love) is featuring their mentor SG Wannabe, making SG Wannabe having 1.5 songs on the chart. The last new entry at No. 20 is a World Cup song – Psy’s "We are the one". It may be the first of many World Cup related songs on the chart. A few others are lurking under the top 20.

Sources of the top 20

The sources of this top 20 chart is pretty much the same but the weight assigned to each source may be different each week because some charts do not update weekly (e.g. MNet M!Countdown) and I assign fewer percentage when it happens. From now on, I’ll list my chart sources each week. For May week 4:

ChartKorea – 20%
Hanteo Weekly Album Sales (2 weeks lag) – 20%
MNet M!Countdown – 20%
SBS Inky Gayo Top 50 (1 week lag) – 15%
Various Internet charts (Melon, Jukeon, MaxMP3, Dosirak, Muz, Bugs, SBS Music Park, MBC gayo top 50, MNet gayo top 100) – 15%
MTV Chart – 5%
Gasoo appearance on gayo shows (MBC Music Core, SBS Inky Gayo, KBS Music Bank, MNet M!Countdown, KBS Yoon Do Hyun Love Letter, MBC Kim Dong Ryul For You, Pops In Seoul, Show! Music Tank) – 5%
