Top 20 – August week 2

2006-08-15 07:05:01 2010-11-24 11:05:06
Ha Dong Kyun remains at No. 1 with "그녀를사랑해줘요" (Please love her). He is going to face two tough challengers next week. Two of last week’s new entries have made impressive jumps in this week’s chart. Turtles’ "비행기" (Aeroplanes) made a BIG 13-spot jump to No. 2, and See Ya’s "미친 사랑의 노래" (Crazy Love Song) moved up 7 spots to No. 3. Turtles has a better chance to be the next No. 1 song because it has a big edge in album sales over See Ya’s song, which is from the KBS drama "Invisible Man Choi Jang Soo". Despite the popularity of this song, the drama’s OST has not recorded good sales figures.

Only 2 new songs this week, but both landed in good spots. Buzz’s follow-up song "My Love" entered the chart at No. 9, while TRAX’s "초우" (Cold Rain) was seen at No. 13. All of Buzz’s songs debuted in the top 10 and went up to No. 1 and No. 2. This may be another chart-topping hit for them. For TRAX, this is officially their first full album. They have previously released 2 singles in 2004.

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.
