Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2011 - October Week 4

The Brown Eyed Girls has repeated as No. 1 with their latest hit “Sixth Sense”. Despite missing in action as a group for nearly two years, the quartet did not miss a beat with their recent comeback and reclaimed their spot not only on top of the chart but also as one of the top girl groups in Korea. BEG again denied Infinite’s “Paradise” this week, actually widening the gap in scoring – both songs had fewer points than last week, but “Paradise” dropped more.

Huh Gak’s “Hello” dropped to No. 6 last week but jumped back three spots to No. 3 this week, becoming the song’s highest ranking and also Huh Gak’s first top three hit.  The gap between “Hello” and the top two songs, however, is more than 200 points.

There is only one new entry to the top 10 this week and it is a brand new song.  Wheesung’s “Here They Come” comes in at No. 6. This is a very special song for Wheesung as he is set to enter the complusory two-year military service in early November. Wheesung was planning to promote this song until his enlistment. However, health reasons ended his comeback prematurely as soon as he started his promotion. Korea will be without one of their top male vocalists for the next two years. We wish Wheesung to get well soon and will look forward to his comeback in two years.

In this segment we go back in time to re-visit charts of the same week in past years. The Soompi music chart began in January 2005. At first we had only 20 songs and was later expanded to 50 songs.

Three years ago this week, it was the last time DBSK hit No. 1 in Korea as a five-membered group with “Mirotic”. The song spent three weeks on top of our chart and was one of DBSK’s most successful hit songs in our chart. At that time, DBSK was at the peak of their career and they were already considered one of the best boy bands Korea has ever had.

Once a five-membered group, DBSK has split into two separate units now.  Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu had a bitter contract dispute with SM Entertainment and the trio left and formed JYJ. The other two members Changmin and Yunho continue to perform as a duo under the name of DBSK. Both DBSK and JYJ came back this year with new albums and enjoyed great success.  Fans still hope that one day all five members will re-unite again and perform together, but it doesn’t look like this is going to happen in the near future.

Let’s revisit Mirotic’s MV and cherish our memories of DBSK as a five-membered group.
