Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – May Week 2

The K-Pop world remains stagnant as of last week due to the ferry accident last month.  Music shows remained off air, and no major artists have released new albums and singles out of respect to the family of the victims. As a result, there are no new songs in the top 10 this week. The top three songs also remain the same with Akdong Musician’s “200%” being No. 1 for the third straight week. Music ...
