Top 20 – June week 1

2006-06-05 08:08:12 2010-11-24 11:04:23

SG Wannabe’s "내사람" (Partner for life) continues to be No. 1 for the 5th straight week, holding off yet another challanger Baek Ji Young’s "사랑안해" (I Won’t Love). SG Wannabe’s song is still gaining scores slightly. If they can hold on to the top spot for another week, they will set a new chart record – no other song has spent 6 weeks in a row at No. 1 on this chart. Only 3 other songs last year has spent 5 weeks at the top: Tei’s "사랑은하나다" (Love is….one), Kim Jong Kook’s "제자리걸음" (Walking from the same place), and Epik High’s "Fly".

A serious challanger for the top spot enters the chart this week: Shinhwa’s "Once in a Lifetime" debuts at No. 14. This is their first charted song in more than 16 months. Shinhwa is also having their comeback stage show in almost every gayo show this week, and it will help boosting their scores. While Shinhwa is still quite far away from the top spot, I won’t be surprised if they will make a big jump next week.

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 June week 1:

ChartKorea – 20%
Hanteo Weekly Album Sales (2 weeks lag) – 20%
MNet M!Countdown – 16%
SBS Inky Gayo Top 50 (1 week lag) – 16%
Various Internet charts (Melon, Jukeon, MaxMP3, Dosirak, Muz, Bugs, SBS Music Park, MBC gayo top 50, MNet gayo top 100) – 16%
MTV Chart – 5%
Gasoo appearance on gayo shows (MBC Music Core, KBS Music Bank, KBS Yoon Do Hyun Love Letter, MBC Kim Dong Ryul For You, SBS Music Wave, Pops In Seoul, Show! Music Tank) – 7%
