Top 20 – March week 2

2006-03-14 04:05:07 2010-11-24 11:03:28

Finally! Finally! After 60 weeks (starting from the beginning of last year), a female artist finally hits #1 on this chart. In fact, both #1 and #2 are female artists. It takes 2 mega stars, and good friends, to break this dry spell. Lee Soo Young and Lee Hyori are #1 and #2 respectively this week. I don’t think neither of them mind who’s #1 as they are close friends. tongue.gif It is certainly a welcome change of scene. Overall, it is a very competitive week in terms of chart scores.

Only 3 new songs this week, but 2 debut into the top 10, led by Super Junior’s 2nd hit "Miracle" at #6. Let see if they can surpass the popularity of their first hit "Twins" which ended up at #4 a few weeks ago.

Sources of the top 20

The sources of this top 20 chart is pretty much the same but the weight assigned to each source may be different each week because some charts do not update weekly (e.g. MNet M!Countdown) and I assign fewer percentage when it happens. From now on, I’ll list my chart sources each week. For March week 2:

ChartKorea – 20%
Hanteo Weekly Album Sales (2 weeks lag) – 20%
MNet M!Countdown – 20%
SBS Inky Gayo Top 50 (1 week lag) – 12%
Various Internet charts (Melon, Jukeon, MaxMP3, Dosirak, SBS Music Park, MBC Gayo top 50) – 12%
MTV Kountdown – 8%
MTV Poll – 3%
Gasoo appearance on gayo shows (Music Core, Inky Gayo, Music Bank, M!Countdown, MTV Live Wow, MTV Most Wanted, Pops In Seoul) – 5%
