Top 20 – June week 4

2006-06-27 06:57:30 2010-11-24 11:04:38
Shinhwa’s "Once in a Lifetime" finally jumps to No. 1 this week, edging out Baek Ji Young’s "사랑안해" (I Won’t Love). Shinhwa’s score of 818 is low for a No. 1 but considered that their M!Countdown score won’t count until next week, it is still an accomplishment to reach No. 1. Buzz’s "남자를 몰라" (Doesn’t know a man’s heart) spent only 1 week at the top and fell back to No. 3 this week, as they are starting to promote "Reds Go Together" more on TV.

5 new songs this week, a rarity for this quiet June, even though 2 songs are re-entries. R&B duo 2SHAI has the highest entry this week at No. 15 with "그녀… 웃었다" (She…Laughed) from their 2nd album. Their 1st album had received good reviews but produced no hit songs. Good to see that they finally made the top 20 this time. 2SHAI is followed by 2 groups from SM entertainment – Superjunior’s "U" is at No. 16, and DBSG’s "동방의투혼" (Spirit of the East) is at No. 17. Shinhwa, DBSG, and Psy’s songs are all related to this year’s World Cup.

Vibe’s "그남자 그여자" (That man, that woman) is back to the top 10 again this week. Even though they did not hit No. 1, this song has been on the chart for 14 weeks now, and spent every week but last week on the top 10. It is really a song that you like more and more each time you listen to it.

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 4:

ChartKorea – 20%
Hanteo Weekly Album Sales (2 weeks lag) – 20%
MNet M!Countdown + M!Net internet gayo top 100 chart – 20%
SBS Inky Gayo Take 7 Chart (1 week lag) – 15%
Various Internet charts (Melon, Jukeon, MaxMP3, Dosirak, Muz, Bugs, SBS Music Park, MBC gayo top 50) – 15%
MTV Chart – 5%
Gasoo appearance on gayo shows (MBC Music Core, SBS Inky Gayo, KBS Music Bank, MTV Sunny Side, MTV TRL Seoul, Pops in Seoul, Show! Music Tank) – 5%
