A Pink’s “Mr. Chu” comes from outside of the top 10 and moves up 16 spots to become our new No. 1 song this week!
This song swept all the music shows last week and easily won over Lee Sun Hee’s “Meet Him Among Them.” Orange Caramel’s “Catallena” rounds out the all female top three this week.
“Mr. Chu” is the title track of A Pink’s 4th mini album, “Pink Blossom.” It is a cute pop dance song about the thrill of sharing the first kiss with one’s significant other. The various synth effects and the upbeat rhythm highlight the sweet and lovable qualities of A Pink. This is A Pink’s second No. 1 song on our chart as they did it last year with “NoNoNo.” Congratulations to A Pink.

Lim Chang Jung repeats as No. 1 for the second week in a row with “Ordinary Song.” In another wide open week last week in which different songs were winning on various music shows, “Ordinary Song” was clearly the most consistent song amongst music charts and was able to win again. Congratulations to Lim Chang Jung.
Moving up three spots to No. 2 is Orange Caramel’s “Catallena.” This song dropped to No. 5 last week and was able to rebound three spots up to second this week, just ten points below “Ordinary Song.” Historically, Orange Caramel’s songs have done well and also fared better than After School’s songs on our chart. This time is no exception. Let see if “Catallena” can move up to the top spot next week.
There are four new songs in the top 10, all by non-idol artists
With the exit of its biggest competitor, SBS’ Three Days has been breathing the fresh air from top.
On Wednesday and Thursday, Three Days recorded the highest numbers with 11.3 and 12.0 percent respectively, hovering over MBC’s Cunning Single Lady and KBS’ new baby, Golden Cross.
Thursday’s ratings aren′t Three Day’s highest numbers, as it has previously recorded 12.9 on March 20’s episode. But this is the drama’s first time returning to 12 percent, and from the looks of things, it certainly won’t be its last.

1. SBS Three Days 11.3 →12.0
There is a major upset on top of the chart this week. Veteran male soloist Lim Chang Jung’s “Ordinary Song” is anything but ordinary as it moves up 20 big spots and leaps over many top idol artists to No. 1 this week. “Ordinary Song” just edged out last week’s No. 1 2NE1’s “Come Back Home” by four points. Congratulations to him.
Lim started his singing career in 1995, and reached a peak in the early 2000′s. Nearly all his album title songs reached No. 1 on the chart back then. He abruptly quit singing after releasing his 10th album in 2003 to focus on his acting career. In 2009 Lim came back to the music scene and released his 11th album. He regained a lot of popularity last year with the song “About Me.”
“Ordinary Song” is the title track of Lim Chang Jung’s 12th album, his first full length album in nearly five years
