Top 20 – August week 4

2006-08-29 07:23:09 2010-11-24 11:05:16

Not a lot of changes this week on the top, as Turtles remain No. 1 with "비행기" (Aeroplanes). They are still gaining scores. We expected Psy’s "연예인" (Performer) to move up, but it hasn’t happened yet as this song stays at No. 3. In between, it is still Ha Dong Kyun’s “그녀를사랑해줘요” (Please Love Her) at No. 2.

Of the top 6 songs, Superjunior’s “Dancing Out” is the only song which is moving. In fact, it is our biggest mover of the week, up 9 spots. Looks like another big hit for them.

Two brand new songs this week, led by Girl Friend’s “May Be I Love You” at No. 12. Girl Friends is a project group formed by 2 close friends: Yuri of Cool and Chae Rina of Roora and Diva. Their music is very different from what they used to do. “May Be I Love You” is a mid-tempo song with a lot of rapping by Chae Rina.

The other new song at No. 18 is Seo Young Eun’s “좋아좋아” (Like it, Like it). It is from her second remake album “Romantic 2”. This time, she is remaking hit songs from the 1970s and 1980s.

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 August week 4:

ChartKorea – 20%
Hanteo Weekly Album Sales (2 weeks lag) – 20%
MNet M!Countdown – 20%
SBS Inky Gayo Take 7 Chart (1 week lag) – 15%

MTV Korea – Artist & Music Charts – 5%
Gasoo appearance on gayo shows (MBC Music Core, SBS Inky Gayo, KBS Music Bank, MNet M!Countdown, MTV Top Choices, MTV Breakfast Club, Show! Music Tank) – 5%
