Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2011 – September Week 3

Since Week 3 of June when Beast‘s “Fiction” became a two-week champ, every No. 1 song that followed has had the same pattern of being only able to stay on top for two weeks. This trend continues as we get a new No. 1 this week with Davichi‘s “Don’t Say Goodbye”. It made a big jump from No. 10 to No. 1 and beat out Sistar‘s “So Cool” which had been No. 1 for the last two weeks. “Don’t Say Goodbye” has a strong showing on all our chart sources, capturing another chart topping hit for Davichi. While the duo was not active for more than a year, they have proved that they are still very popular.

It is again an all-female top three on this week’s chart just like in many weeks this year. Sistar’s “So Cool” drops to No. 2 while G.na‘s “Top Girl” remains at No. 3.

A new song will definitely join the female competition in the top three next week and perhaps even have a chance to hit No. 1. It is Kara‘s long awaited comeback hit “Step”, the title song from their third full length of the same name. “Step” debuts at No. 7 this week. This song is written by Kim Seung Soo and Han Jae Ho. The duo has written many of Kara’s past hit songs. This sweet number is of the rock and electronic genre and has polished synth sounds. Listeners will be able to hear matured voices of the five members through this song. Kara has been the most successful K-pop artist on our chart over the last two years. and are looking to extend that streak.

The only other new song on the top 10 this week is “Neverland” by U-Kiss, moving up 18 big spots to No. 10. “Neverland” has disco and house beats and it showcases the group members vocal talent one by one. Ryan Jhun, who has worked with big name stars like Lee Hyori, TVXQ, and Super Junior, was in charge of this song.

Comment: Crayon’s third single, “Found a Person I Love” is of the country pop genre with shuffle rhythms. The simple melody and mainstreams sounds make this the perfect song to sing along to. It was composed and penned by Kim Jong Chun who has written songs for other artists such as Jang Geun Suk. The song is about falling in love at first sight. (credits to motoway065 for translations)
