Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2013 – June Week 5


Big changes in the top 10 this week as all the top three songs are new entries from outside of the top 10.

As expected, SISTAR’s “Give It To Me” moves from No. 13 all the way to No. 1 this week.  This song has swept nearly every music chart in Korea and it is no surprise to see it on top of our chart with a high score of 977 points.  “Give It To Me” is the title song of SISTAR’s second full length album.  Written by Double Sidekick, “Give It To Me” is an electronic dance beat song with an addictive melody.  This song may be one of the top hit songs of 2013.  With its success, SISTAR also firmly cemented themselves as one of the top girl groups in K-Pop now.

Moving up a big 25-spots to No. 2 is After School’s latest hit “First Love.”  This song is coming from After School’s sixth maxi single of the same name.  This slow-beat dance song is composed by Brave Brothers.   It reminds us a little bit of another Brave Brothers hit song, SISTAR19’s “Gone Not Around Any Longer” earlier this year.  Listeners will be able to experience yet another side of After School through this number, including the pole dance in their performances.  After School’s songs are always in the top three but they are still looking for their first ever No. 1 song.  Let see if they will get it this time.

Also moving up 25 spots to No. 3 to complete a female sweep this week is Ivy’s new song “I Dance.”  This is the title song from Ivy’s second mini-album of the same name.  This time Ivy reunited with JYP, who wrote this song and also her debut hit “Tonight” back in 2005.  “I Dance” combines tango, hip-hop, and electronic genres. The song holds lyrics about dancing and singing in order to forget pain. What makes the song even more anticipated is that Wonder Girls’ Yoobin lends her voice for the rap portion of the song.

The last new song in the top 10 is at No. 7 and it belongs to rock band Nell’s “Ocean Of Light.”  Recently, Nell released part two of their “Gravity” series, “Escaping Gravity.” The songs in this album follow the theme of escaping from frustration and despair.  Title song “Ocean Of Light” is written by lead singer Kim Jong Wan.  This modern rock track brings out the finest in Korean rock music.  Despite being dominated by idol singers, this song has no trouble hitting the top 10.

This is the last weekly music chart of the first half of 2013.  I am going to announce the half year top 10 K-Pop songs from our chart in the middle of next week.  Be sure to check back and find out what are the most popular songs in the first half of this year.
