Top 20 – May week 2

2006-05-16 07:03:11 2010-11-24 11:04:11
A relatively quiet week – SG Wannabe repeats as #1 with "내사람" (Partner for life). They scored 3 points better than last week. Tony An moved up to #2 with "유츄프라카치아" (Yutzpracachia’s Love). Too bad he injured himself while performing at KBS Music Bank last week. sad.gif That will affect his gasoo appearance score to a certain extent until he comes back to perform. We all hope Tony will have a speedy recovery.

Only 2 new songs this week, led by Lee Jung’s "열" (Fever). This song is again featuring Epik High’s Tablo. He’s been featured in a lot of songs lately. Lee Jung and Tablo starred together in the MBC sitcom "Nonstop 5" last year. The other new entry this week is at #20, Ok Ju Hyun’s "아름다운이별" (Beautiful Separation), a remake of Kim Gun Mo’s hit song. It’s not the first time this song is being remade. There was a Chinese version a few years ago by Bowie Lam. The latest version is coming from songwriter Kim Hyung Suk’s compliation album "Kim Hyung Suk with friends".

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. MTV Korea is in temporary hiatus so its percentage will decrease for now.

ChartKorea – 20%
Hanteo Weekly Album Sales (2 weeks lag) – 20%
MNet M!Countdown – 16%
SBS Inky Gayo Top 50 (1 week lag) – 15%
Various Internet charts (Melon, Jukeon, MaxMP3, Dosirak, Muz, SBS Music Park, MBC gayo top 50, MNet gayo top 100) – 15%
MTV Kountdown – 6%
MTV Poll – 2%
Gasoo appearance on gayo shows (MBC Music Core, SBS Inky Gayo, KBS Music Bank, Pops In Seoul) – 6%
