Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2011 – March Week 2


IU remains No. 1 with “Story Only I Didn’t Know”. 2011 is only 11 weeks in, and IU already spent five weeks on the top spot with two different songs. This will be her breakout year for sure.

Lee Hyun is up to No. 2 with “You Are The Best Of My Life”, one of two Hitman Bang written songs in the top 5 this week.  Whether he is solo, with 8Eight, or with Homme, Lee Hyun’s best chart position is No. 2.  Let see if he can taste No. 1 next week.

Big Bang’s “Tonight” is moving slower than expected, up five spots to No. 6 this week. This song has swept all TV shows and also tops most internet charts, but still needs to pick up more airplay points to challenge the top songs.

Kim Hyun Jung moves up 32 big spots to get into the top 10 this week with “One Minute One Second”.  It is her first top 10 song in a long time.

Ha Hyun Gon파랑새 (Blue Bird)     
Genre: Acoustic Rock Ballad
External from soompi image 
Album: Ha Hyun Gon digital single “Blue Bird” 
Listen To: Full Song
Comment: Singersongwriter Ha Hyun Gon comes before us with a warm single, “Blue Bird.” The singer returns with an acoustic number that incorporates electric guitar sounds. Ha’s husky voice flows with the song well. The song is about taking a break from the hectic world to see one’s forgotten dreams and love. (credits to motoway065 for translations)
