Fly To The Sky is still going very strong, holding on to the top spot for the 3rd straight week with a 947 score. Lee Soo Young is closing in, moving up another sopt to #2. Let see if she will become the first female artist to hit #1 on this chart next week (we have none since the chart started last year).

Another week with lots of new songs (6). But the more surpising fact is the songs that dropped out. 5 of the 6 songs dropped out were still in the top 10 last week. ohmy.gif This chart is moving a lot faster in the last 3 weeks. smile.gif New singer Howl has 1.5 songs in the chart: his solo debut "앵무새" (Parrot) moves up 1 spot to #18 this week, and his duet with J "Perhaps Love" debuts at #13. This song is coming from the OST of the popular MBC drama "Goong". It is the first drama song to hit our top 20 this year.

3 songs debuted from last week made big jumps. They are KCM’s "태양의눈물" (Tears of the Sun), up 9 spots to #3; Lee Seung Ki’s "하기힘든말" (Words Hard to Tell), up 12 spots to #4, and K’s "웃어요", up 8 spots to #10. Let see if these songs will challange Fly To The Sky for the top spot next week.
