The effects of the recent political developments in South Korea are multifaceted and its reach can be found in even the music charts in Korea.

According to Melon, Girl’s Day’s song “Female President” experienced a sudden surge in popularity after the announcement of Park Geun Hye’s impeachment and topped the “sudden surge” music chart at 1 p.m. KST on March 10.

The second and third spots in the same chart were occupied by Girls’ Generation’s debut song “Into the New World” and Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida” respectively.

Girl’s Day’s track was released in 2013, just 4 months after South Korea’s first female president, Park Geun Hye, took office. The song contains lyrics conveying female confidence like, “Our country’s president is now a female. So what’s the big deal? Why can’t girls do it first?”
