  1. No big surprise Kara haven't done brilliantly given that they have been on a downward trend (popularity-wise) since Step

    A big shock how terrible Sunny Hill are doing. The song is decent. But I guess two consecutive snooze ballads killed all that great momentum up until Goodbye to Romance

    SISTAR's #1 streak comes to an end at the hands of none other than T, aka Yoon Mi Rae, who nabs her second chart-topper in a year with "I Love You". Coming exactly 12 months to the date "Touch Love" went #1, Mi Rae follows one OST smash with another as "I Love You" arrives on top with 226k sold. It actually finishes with slightly less than SISTAR's "I Swear" (231k), but makes up the difference in BGM, where "I Love You" places 3rd to "I Swear"'s 25th. "I Swear" is SISTAR's first single since 2011 not to reach the pole position, and is their 12th top 10.

    Elsewhere Swings and Ailee swing 19 spots up the chart to #5 with their collabo single "A Real Man". It is Ailee's 13th top 10 hit.

    Also breaching the top 10 is Team B's BOBBY, who follows B.I on the Money train to the top 10 as "L4L (Lookin' For Luv)" jumps 21 places to #7.

    Over on the album's chart there's not to report. SuJu is still a week off, which gives Taemin time to linger at #1. His ACE mini spends a second week on top.

    So it looks like Gaon has fiddled with their charts again because numbers from the last month have all changed slightly, and last week's #1 is now listed as being "I Swear" rather than "I Love You". No idea why but it's not the first time Gaon has retroactively changed a chart, so we'll just go with it for now.

    In any case, T still has a #1 on her hands, as "I Love You" is this week's #1, swapping spots with SISTAR's "I Swear" from last time. The highest new entry comes courtesy of LADIES' CODE, who archive their highest charting single and first top 10 with "I'm Fine Thank You", which bows at #3. A tribute to the tragically slain EunB and RiSe, it bests their previous high mark "Hate You", which went to #13 last year.

    Show Me The Money 3 continues to crank out hits. Just ahead of IRON's "Reader" (? - the only other translation I get is "malaria") at #5, BOBBY racks up a second top 10 as "YGGR#Hip Hop" shoots 16 spots to #4.

    Jung-In and Gary's second bite at the apple isn't as dazzlingly successful as their first, but "Bicycle" still has enough juice to take them to #6.

    Finally news is "So Good" for Jay Park - he nets his first top 10 single since 2011's "Abandoned" as his latest title track bows at #9.

    Outside the top 10 Super Junior mercifully stall at #11 with "MAMACITA", Maroon 5 are still the American band Koreans love, as "Animal" goes in at #12 and Adam Levine's solo (how very K-Pop of him) "Lost Stars" rises to #10, and speaking of westerners Keira Knightley's latest flick is apparently making waves across the Pacific as "Tell Me If You Wanna Go Home" rises 18 spots to #32. Could we have another "Let It Go" on our hands? (No.)

    Over on the albums chart there are no surprises as the contest for the top spot ends in an easy victory for Super Junior. It is their 8th chart-topper.

    Ever heard of Postmen? Me neither. Nor did most of Korea, seemingly, until a contestant performed their song "I Can't Go To Sinchon" on last week's Superstar K6 and, like magic, the 8 month old track shot like a bullet to the top of the charts. Not much to say beyond that.

    The rest of the top 10 is old news, though Team B's BOBBY is setting utter carnage upon the charts with yet another top 10 smasher as "Gadeuolligo Bounce" does just that, up 13 spots to #4.

    Outside the top 10 TTS' "Whisper" enters at #11 on one day of sales, while T-ara's "Sugar Free" is a aspartame-sized disaster, opening at #37. It is their lowest-charting lead title track ever, far lower than last year's #5 "Number Nine", and their second-lowest charting single ever; only last year's secondary title track "Because I Know" charted lower, at #41.

    No luck on the albums chart either, where they're blocked by Super Junior, who reign for a second week with Mamacita.

    Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssss *into infinity*


    Amazing work that person did (if they did indeed sift through every download chart since 2010), and pretty unsurprising results. Wonder if they bothered adding numbers for other OST beasts like BJY or ZIA, who pretty much live in the top 10. Imagine their #'s must be pretty high, though probably lower than Huh Gak.

    That quote makes no sense whatever you think of their songs. IGAB is the only song that could be labeled 'experimental' (of course it's also amazing, but that's not the point here!) and sure got them better results than 'The Boys', which no one remembers now, but did not mark a new age for SNSD, because they went back to their safe, simple pop songs for every subsequent release. Mr Mr is inoffensive and sold less. So that user already got her wish, and SNSD is less interesting because of it.
     
  9. I agree. The only 'garbage' experimental song is IGAB. Mr. Mr is essentially a safe Western song translated into Korean.

    A slow week devoid of any major releases, Postmen hold onto the #1 spot for a second frame.

    Adam Levine's "Lost Stars" is up again, while his other Begin Again OST "No One Else Like You" rises 3 spots to #9. Keira Knightley's "Tell Me If You Wanna Go Home" is also up to #16.

    Girls' Generation-TTS arrives at #3 with "Holler" (#1 downloads with 156k sold) while pushing 11-4 with "Whisper". They also have this week's #1 album.

    2PM's 10th top 10 is "Go Crazy!", which enters at #5, while Teen Top's 5th top 10 "Missing" starts at #8.

    Record ratings for the current season of Superstar K lead contestants Kwak Jin Un, Kim Feel, and Im Do Hyuk to the top of the charts with their cover of Lee Chi Hyun & Friends' "Only You". It rises 11 spots from last time and finishes second in downloads with 187k sold.

    This unfortunately blocks Ailee, who won't be adding a second #1 to her collection this year. Her latest single "Don't Touch Me" bows at #2 on the main chart while finishing first in downloads (192k sold). It is nonetheless Ailee's 14th top 10, and her 4th just this year. Of her main promotional singles, (not counting OST's and features) all have gone at least top 3.

    Right behind Ailee after 2 days on sale is Soyu and Urban Zakapa, who enter at #3 with the collaboration single "The Space Between". It is Soyu's 6th top 10 outside of SISTAR and of course follows the massive, YTD #1 single "Some", which just last week officially passed the 2 million mark in downloads, her second song to reach that impressive milestone following her 2012 collab "Officially Missing You, Too". ("Some" also reaches 98,395,126 streams. It the most streamed song in Gaon's history).

    Meanwhile the impact of "Some" is still being felt on the chart as NS Yoon-G comes from out of absolutely nowhere to score her first top 10 hit this week (who even knew she had a single out?) Yoon-G and not-so-underground-anymore emcee Giriboy make the leap 19-6 with their collaboration single and "Some" knock-off "Anticipation Note". It is Yoon-G's best-ever chart showing, topping the #16 "If You Love Me" featuring Jay Park from 2012.

    It seems Zion.T is finally becoming a mainstream force as his latest single, "Yanghwa Bridge", enters at #8 to become the R&B crooner's first top 10. It bests his previous highmark "Miss Kim" which made it to #25 late last year.

    Over on the albums chart Teen Top swap places with TTS to net their second #1 album with Éxito.
