Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2011 - December Week 3

We started this year with IU on top of the chart (with “Good Day“) and it looks like we are going to end 2011 also with IU on top, as her new song “You And I” edged out T-Ara‘s “Cry Cry” to become our new No. 1 song.  It is also IU’s third chart topping hit of the year, joining “Good Day” and “Story Only I Didn’t Know.” At the young age of 18, IU has already become one of the top female soloists in Korea.

Our previous two No. 1 songs are sitting at No. 2 and 3 respectively this week. T-Ara’s “Cry Cry” came close this week and lost to IU by only five points. Not far behind, Wonder Girl’s former No. 1 song “Be My Baby” is still going strong at No. 3.

There are two new songs in the top 20 this week. Right below the top three, we find Trouble Maker‘s song with the same title as the group name at No. 4. Trouble Maker is a project duo formed by Beast‘s Hyun Seung and 4minute‘s HyunA. Broadcast companies thought their dance moves for their live performance were too sexy, so they were asked to change it, literally fulfilling their roles as “trouble maker”. This song is written by Shinsadong Tiger and Rado, who also wrote the No. 5 song, A Pink‘s “My My“. 

The other new entry to the top 10 this week belongs to Dynamic Duo, as the title song “Friday Night” from their 6th album Digilog landed at No. 8 this week.  This album celebrates the group’s ten years in the music industry.  “Friday Night” has a hardcore hip-hop melodies that fans of this genre will enjoy listening to.

We won’t have the additional segment (bonus tracks/yesterday once more/looking back at charts in the past) for this and next week’s chart issue. Also, this week’s “New Albums And Singles Preview” will also be the last issue of 2011. Our staff is busily working to bring you this year’s Soompi Gayo Award. The nominees will be announced sometime next week, followed by the start of fan voting.  Be sure to stay tuned and find out if your favorite artists are nominated an awards.
