Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – April Week 2

Lim Chang Jung repeats as No. 1 for the second week in a row with “Ordinary Song.”  In another wide open week last week in which different songs were winning on various music shows, “Ordinary Song” was clearly the most consistent song amongst music charts and was able to win again.  Congratulations to Lim Chang Jung. Moving up three spots to No. 2 is Orange Caramel’s “Catallena.”  This song droppe...

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – April Week 1

There is a major upset on top of the chart this week. Veteran male soloist Lim Chang Jung’s “Ordinary Song” is anything but ordinary as it moves up 20 big spots and leaps over many top idol artists to No. 1 this week.  “Ordinary Song” just edged out last week’s No. 1 2NE1’s “Come Back Home” by four points.  Congratulations to him. Lim started his singing career in 1995, and reached a peak in the e...

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – March Week 5

2NE1’s “Come Back Home” becomes our new No. 1 song this week, swapping positions with Girls’ Generation’s “Mr. Mr.”  “Come Back Home” won on M!Countdown and also ranked higher than “Mr. Mr.” on GAON, Billboard Korea, and most internet charts, enabling 2NE1 to claim the top spot over Girls’ Generation. Congratulations to 2NE1.  Next week we expect these two songs to battle again for the top spot. T...

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – March Week 4

Girls’ Generation’s “Mr. Mr.” becomes our new No. 1 song this week, moving up from No. 3 last week. Carrying the strength of four music show wins in last week’s M!Countdown, KBS Music Bank, MBC’s Music Core and Show Champion, “Mr. Mr.” finally moves up to the top spot and distinguish itself from the rest of the strong competitions. Congratulations to Girls’ Generations. Moving up two spots t...

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – March Week 3

Despite strong competition from several new songs, Soyu and Junggigo’s duet “Some” refuses to give up the top spot and repeats as No. 1 for the fourth week in a row.  “Some” recorded another win in KBS Music Bank last week and still tops Billboard Korea. It is the first song on our chart to stay at No. 1 for four or more weeks since PSY’s famous hit “Gangnam Style” one and a half year ago.  Congra...

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – March Week 2

Even though it cannot repeat the perfect score of last week, the duet “Some” between Soyu and Junggigo is No. 1 for the third straight week.  This song just keeps piling up music show wins.  Even before very strong competitions, this week “Some” still wins on KBS Music Bank.  Odds don’t favor this song to be No. 1 again next week since we have a trio of major artists coming back and eyeing the top...

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – March Week 1

Soyu and Jungigo’s “Some” not only repeated as No. 1 on our chart this week, but it becomes the first song in more than five and a half years to achieve a perfect score of 1000 points.  The last song did it was Lee Hyori’s “U-Go-Girl” back in August Week 3 of 2008.  “Some” swept all the music shows last week and was also topped both GAON and Billboard Korea. It is still winning on music shows this...

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – February Week 4

We have a new No. 1 this week!  “Some,” a duet between SISTAR’s Soyu and R&B artist Junggigo, jumps from No. 26 all the way to the top spot this week, overtaking our three-week champion Girl’s Day and their “Something.”  Soyu has become a favorite duet partner for male K-Pop artists as this is the third time she’s helping a relatively unknown male artist to get into the spotlight. In 2012, Soy...

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – February Week 3

Girl’s Day’s “Something” continues to dominate and remains No. 1 for a third week. It becomes the first song since EXO’s big hit “Growl” last year to record three straight weeks on top of our chart. Taking full advantage of the slower months of K-Pop at the beginning of the year, Girl’s Day establishes themselves as one of the rising girl groups (we have another two in this week’s top 10). Ailee’s...
