With the immense popularity of the show, it is no surprise that “Infinity Challenge” has caused old songs to top music charts.
Zion.T’s “Yanghwa Bridge,” which was released 10 months ago, has topped all the popular music charts of Korea, including Mnet, Olleh Music, Soribada, Naver Music, and Monkey 3. This song rose to the spotlight once again because it had appeared on the latest episode of “Infinity Challenge.”
Zion.T’s father, who was the inspiration for the song, appeared on “Infinity Challenge” and joined Zion.T and Haha on their taxi ride, which Zion.T says was really moving for him, being on a broadcast together with his father in a taxi.
At the time of the song’s release, Zion.T elaborated that the bridge itself represents his father. “When I suddenly realized one day that I was the head of the household, I found the inspiration for the song.” Zion.T further stated that the song is about family, felt from the perspective of being in his father’s shoes. He dedicated the song to all the young fathers and to all the families that experienced hardships in their earlier days.
Similarly, the band Hyukoh was also able to experience the “Infinity Challenge” effect. For their songs “Come and Goes” and “Wi Ing Wi Ing,” both rose up to first place on music charts after their appearances on “Infinity Challenge.”
Every time “Infinity Challenge” has their song festival episodes, all the songs released completely devour the music charts. What were some of your favorite songs from the previous song festivals? Are you looking forward to this year’s line-up?
