Top 20 – April week 4

2006-04-24 06:50:35 2010-11-24 11:03:56

Se7en is No. 1 for the 3rd straight week, holding off yet another challanger – this time it’s the rookie female trio See Ya. Their debut song "여인의향기" (Scent of a woman) scored 1 point higher than Vibe to overtake the No. 2 spot. For a new group their success is already amazing. Not to mention that their mentor SG Wannabe is also in the chart this week. We may see both the male and female version of SG Wannabe in the top 5 next week.

Only 2 new songs, but like I said both have very good potential. Baek Ji Young’s first song in 2.5 years "사랑안해" (I Won’t Love) debuts just short of the top 10 at No. 11. Unlike her previous songs which have a Latin dance favor, this song is a sad ballad for a change. For sure it’s going to be a popular song to sing in karaoke (noraebang).

The other new song at No. 19 is SG Wannabe’s "내사람" (Partner for life). Don’t be misled by its low debuting position this week. The sales (2 weeks lag) have not even kicked in and it is amazing that they have already enough scores to hit the top 20. Look for this song to make a big jump to the top 5 next week, and may be even higher…..

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. M!Countdown had a showed in Japan last week but they did not update their rankings. So I have to further reduce its percentage. To compensate, I have added muz.com to the internet charts and increased its percentage temporarily. For April week 4:

ChartKorea – 20%
Hanteo Weekly Album Sales (2 weeks lag) – 20%
MNet M!Countdown – 12%
SBS Inky Gayo Top 50 (1 week lag) – 12%
Various Internet charts (Melon, Jukeon, MaxMP3, Dosirak, Muz, SBS Music Park, MBC Gayo top 50) – 14%
MTV Kountdown – 10%
MTV Poll – 6%
Gasoo appearance on gayo shows (MBC Music Core, SBS Inky Gayo, KBS Music Bank, MNet M!Countdown, MTV Live Wow, MTV Most Wanted, Pops In Seoul, Show Music Tank, KBS Yoon Do Hyun Love Letter, SBS Music Wave) – 6%
