Top 20 – May week 3

2006-05-23 05:58:49 2010-11-24 11:04:15

SG Wannabe holds on to the top spot for the 3rd straight week with "내사람" (Partner for life), again winning over Tony An’s " "유츄프라카치아" (Yutzpracachia’s Love). Both songs are still gaining on scores. Tony is back performing now and it should help his song to gain more scores. Let see if he can overtake the top spot now.

After a quiet week last week, we have 4 new songs plus a re-entry this week. The highest debut coming in at No. 8 is Buzz’s new song "남자를 몰라" (Don’t know about man). There is some confusion as to whether this song or "My Darling" is the title song of their album. But after their comeback special, Buzz have been performing "남자를 몰라" so we choose to have this song on the chart, even though "My Darling" is more popular on internet charts.

The other 4 new or re-entries are all by female artists – Gummy, Jang Yoon Jung, Lee Hyori, and Jang Hye Jin. I notice that there are more female singers on the chart than male singers this week. There are 12 songs sung by female singers or groups (including Loveholic). This scenerio has not happened for some time.

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 May week 3:

ChartKorea – 20%
Hanteo Weekly Album Sales (2 weeks lag) – 20%
MNet M!Countdown – 20%

MTV Kountdown – 4%
MTV Poll – 2%
Gasoo appearance on gayo shows (MBC Music Core, SBS Inky Gayo, KBS Music Bank, MNet M!Countdown, KBS Yoon Do Hyun Love Letter, Pops In Seoul) – 5%
