Buzz’s "남자를 몰라" (Don’t know a man’s heart) surprised us once again by re-taking the No. 1 spot this week. This song was No. 1 in June week 3, before Shinhwa’s "Once in a Lifetime" took over for the last 3 weeks. This week we all expect Superjunior’s "U" to be the new No. 1 song. However, Buzz edged SJ by 8 points, proves once again that you never know what will happen till the end. tongue.gif

See Ya’s new song "구두" (Slipper) from their debut album moves into the top 5 this week. All their 3 singles made it to top 10. They are definitely the favorite to win the new artist of this year, and perhaps even top 10 artists. Also, Jung Jae Wook scores his first top 10 song "들리나요" (Can you hear?) by moving up 8 spots to No. 9.

We have 5 new songs this week, leading by SG Wannabe’s new song "사랑했어요" (I Love You), featuring Danny Ahn of G.O.D., at No. 11. Danny is not the only G.O.D. member on the chart this week. At No. 19, also a new song by Suho "봄여름가을겨을" (Spring Summer Fall Winter). This song features G.O.D.’s Kim Tae Woo. If you like MC Mong’s "I Love U, Oh Thank U" last year, there is a good chance that you will like this song too. tongue.gif It’s another hip hop + ballad that sounds very smooth together.

Other new entrants this week include a digital single "I Go" by modern rock group Rumble Fish, at No. 12. They had a big hit last year "으라차차", let see if this song can duplicate the success. Another modern rock group Loveholic also have a new song "고대만 있다면" (Just With You) at No. 15, but this is a pop ballad. This song appears in both Loveholic’s 3rd album and the OST of MBC drama "One Fine Day". It’s popularity is due more to the drama. It is also more of lead singer Ji Sun’s solo effort, as we saw only her performing the song minus the 2 male members.

The last new song is Gummy’s "혼자만하는사랑" (One sided love). This song replaces her previous hit "그대 돌아오면" (When you return) which was still in the top 10 last week, but fell out of the chart this 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 July week 3:

ChartKorea – 20%
Hanteo Weekly Album Sales (2 weeks lag) – 20%
MNet M!Countdown – 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, MNet Gayo Chart) – 15%
MTV Korea – Artist & Music Charts – 5%
Gasoo appearance on gayo shows (MBC Music Core, SBS Inky Gayo, KBS Music Bank, MBC Kim Dong Ryul For you, SBS Music Wave, KBS Yoon Do Hyun Love Letter, MTV Live Wow Special, MTV Sunny Side, MTV TRL Seoul, Pops in Seoul, Show! Music Tank) – 5%
