    Happy Yuna Kim scored a top 10 hit. Many promising female solo artists have failed to make any chart impact.
     
  2. So weird and disappointing that 15& flopped so hard when they had a #1 just a few weeks ago (Sugar is a much better song too).

    Apparently Psy's new song will only be released on itunes and not the Korean sites, so I wonder how Gaon will deal with that. Will it even chart?

    Pretty sure they don't have itunes in Korea, so probably not.

    And don't even talk to me about 15&. I'm seriously in a minor depression over the floppage.

    All eyes are on Taeyang as he enters his latest single "Eyes, Nose, Lips" at #1 with a healthy 322k sold. It is Taeyang's first solo chart-topper in the Gaon era, performing far stronger than last year's "RINGA LINGA", which peaked a #6. Taeyang also enters the G-Dragon collaboration "Stay With Me" at #7; his 9th top 10 outside of BIG BANG and G-Dragon's 20th.

    Also new this week is Davichi, who are once "Again" in the top 10 with their latest hit, which enters at #5. It is the duo's 14th top 10 single. Elsewhere SNSD's Taeyeon scores her 7th top 10 single outside of her group as "Love, That One Word" rises 7 spots to #8.

    Over on the albums chart there's not much to report, last week's champs VIXX fall to #4 while former leaders INFINITE rack up a second non-consecutive week at #1 with Season 2.

    This week's chart are in!

    Points of interest

    Several new songs penetrate the top 10 this week lead by BEAST, who come in on top with their pre-release "No More". The song sells 232k. It is BEAST's 3rd #1 single and the group's 13th top 10. Interestingly all three of their #1's to date have been pre-release singles, rather than a main promoted title track.

    Meanwhile last week's #1 "Eyes, Nose, Lips" by Taeyang holds on strong only dropping 1 spot, while Davichi's "Again" gets that Brave Bros. boost and increases 5-3.

    New in the top 5 is Gummy who enters her latest release "I Loved... Have No Regrets" at #5, just ahead of the San E x Rania track "A Midsummer Night's Sweetness" which slightly underperforms at #6. Still it is San E's second top 10 in just the last 2 weeks, with "Whats Wrong With Me" holding strong at #7.

    Finally rounding things out is up-and-comer Crush, whose breakout hit "Hug Me" makes the leap 16-10 to score the singer his second top 10 single as a lead artist, following the #8 "Sometimes" from earlier this year, in addition to his feature on LOCO's #4 "Hold Me Tight".

    Over on the albums chart Taeyang lands his 3rd solo leader as RISE debuts at #1. Also new this week are titles from a swath of boybands - B.A.P, Boyfriend, and Topp Dogg - as well as some soloists flexing their physical power - Crush and Gummy.

    This week's charts are in!

    While their new single hasn't generated much interest here on PJ it seems BEAST's fanbase has enough power to snag them a second #1 single in two weeks. The group's title track "Good Luck" follows last week's "No More" straight to the top, entering at #1 with 224k sold. It is the first time the group has score back-to-back #1's with two consecutive singles, and is BEAST's 4th chart topper. This also gives BEAST the distinction of being only the 5th artist in Gaon chart history to replace themselves at the top, and the first to do so in a year and a half since Girls' Generation's "I Got A Boy" dethroned their own "Dancing Queen" the week dated January 5, 2013.

    BEAST just scrape by Maroon 5, who prove themselves again as the American band Koreans love the most with their new single "Maps". The song debuts at #2 and actually finishes ahead of "Good Luck" on the downloads chart, where it enters at #1 with 249k sold. It also of course debuts #1 over on the good ol' international Gaon singles chart, where it is their 5th chart-topper.

    New in the top 10 are some more familiar faces - Bumkey - new at #5 with his latest single "Home", while veterans Dynamic Duo slide in at #6 with their appropriately timed "Summer Time".

    Outside the top 10 AOA nearly match the #11 peak of "Miniskirt" with "Short Hair", which enters at #14, while Mamamoo's debut-though-not-really-debut single "Mr. Ambiguous" enters at #51 with no superstar features to bolster them.

    Over on the albums chart BEAST's Good Luck predictably leads the count, becoming the group's 5th #1.

    Taeyang still going strong on Billboard. Second week at #1 there.

    Double post since I missed last week's charts (would you be surprised if I told you f(x) is to blame?), though first an important programming note - It appears Gaon has redesigned its website (again, I know), and with it they've removed the Digital Aggregate numbers from the main, combined digital chart. Very thankfully the downloads chart is still preserved with numbers in tact, so we'll have that, but going forward it seems we will no longer have the aggregate numbers. Perhaps not the biggest loss as we tended to focus on the download numbers in this thread (not to mention it makes my job easier), but still a useful measure to have on hand, and certainly better than not knowing at all how they tally up the points on the main chart.

    Anyway, to be clear, the charts I'm posting here are still the Digital Chart (Official Singles Chart of South Korea) and the Albums Chart (no change there - still no numbers), except that the aggregate numbers will no longer be posted, as they're no longer available.

    IU. 34 Gaon Top 10s. That's all kinds of ridiculous.

    A year after "Short Hair" tore up the charts Huh Gak and Apink's Eunji are back, and the result is another thumbs up from the public as they debut #1 with "Break Up To Make Up", which sells 276k. It is Gak's 7th chart-topper and Eunji's 3rd solo #1. This leaves f(x) to debut at #2 with "Red Light", which becomes the group's 8th consecutive title track to go top 5 since debut and is their 11th top 10 overall, including album cut "MILK", which opens at #10 on this week's chart. g.o.d meanwhile are doing very well for themselves, entering two songs in this week's top 10 in addition to the one they already had there last week. IU's feature on "Sing For Me" means she gets her 35th top 10 hit.

    Over on the albums chart f(x)'s Red Light comes in at #1 as expected. It is the group's 4th chart topper and based on early Hanteo figures is likely to come 2nd only to SNSD this year when all is said and done. Also new in the top 10 is a flurry of boybands - g.o.d at #2, NU'EST at #5, 100% at #8 and C-CLOWN at #9.

    Honestly I'm more surprised KHJ isn't #2 above g.o.d. Dude usually moves units. Finishing behind a boyband past their prime is a bit of a shock, albeit nostalgia is clearly a powerful drug.

    edit: nvm, forgot he released on a Friday. Still could be a contender for #1 next week then.

    This week's charts are in!

    Points of interest

    Though they were denied earlier this year, Girl's Day finally make it all the way with "Darling", which debuts at #1 to become the group's first chart-topper. It surpasses the #2 "Something" as Girl's Day's best effort, and is the group's 6th top 10 single overall.

    Meanwhile there's lots of new stuff shaking up the top 10. Coming in at #2 is comedian and evergreen chart force Park Myung Soo, whose "Myungsoo's Ddukbokki" gives guest Lim Kim her 6th solo top 10. And speaking of evergreen chart forces, Ailee and 2LSON's big summer ballad "I'm in love" is up 15 to #3, giving Ailee her 12th top 10 hit.

    Last week's #1 "Break Up to Make Up" by Huh Gak and Jung Eunji drops 3 spots this time, while San E is showing some serious consistency, at #5 for a third week in a row with the Raina-assisted "A Midsummer Night's Sweetness". Taeyang's "Eyes, Nose, Lips", likewise, is proving to be a very leggy hit, still in the top 10 after 7 weeks.

    Meanwhile back for more chart love is Beenzino, who follows the back-to-back #1's "Dali, Van, Picasso" and "Want U" with "How Do I Look?", which enters at #6 to become the rapper's 3rd top 10.

    Rounding out the top 10 are entries from B1A4 - "SOLO DAY" enters at #7 to become their 4th straight top 10 - and Block B (even after all this time I got them confused and had to go back and re-write this sentence), who are new at #10 with their previously cancelled title track "Jackpot" which finally sees official release. It is Block B's 4th top 10 hit.

    Over on the albums chart B1A4 succeed with their 5th #1 album, and their second this year. They are followed by Henry and Girl's Day at #2 and 3 respectively.
