For the third straight week, a song from outside of the top 10 the previous week captures the No. 1 spot. This week the honor belongs to Davichi, as their latest hit “Letter” jumps all the way from No. 21 to the top. It is the second chart topping hit for Davichi this year. The duo also hit No. 1 with “Be Warmed” back in April. Congratulations.
“Letter” is from Davichi’s digital single “Davichi Code.” Written by hitmaker Jun Hae Sung, “Letter” has an acoustic guitar arrangement. Davichi expresses the poetic lyrics with their perfect harmony. This song won on MBC Music Core last week and consistently ranked among the top songs across all charts. As a result, it beats last week’s No. 1, miss A’s “Hush” for the top spot this week
After a few quiet weeks, we have a lot of movement in the top 10 this week. There are five new songs, including our new No. 1 song this week. Miss A’s latest hit “Hush” debuted only at No. 20 a week ago but moved up 19 spots to take over as our new No. 1 song, easily winning over last week’s No. 1 Trouble Maker’s “Now.” Miss A hasn’t hit No. 1 on our chart since “Touch” in March of last year. Congratulations.
“Hush” is the title song from miss A’s second full length album of the same name. Instead of working with their boss and long time producer JYP, “Hush” is written by E-Tribe and penned by E-Tribe and Min Yeon Jae. It has a different style than miss A’s past hits. The lyrics are about the joy of whispers and kisses between lovers
Trouble Maker’s “Now” went from outside of the top 10 (No. 15) last week and moved up all the way to No. 1 this week. It is not a surprise considering that this song swept all music shows last week. The tiny margin of victory over Park Ji Yoon’s “Mr. Lee” is more shocking.
This is the first No. 1 song for Trouble Maker, the headline-grabbing duo made up of BEAST’s Hyun Seung and 4minutes’ HyunA. The self titled track “Trouble Maker” went to No. 2 early last year. “Now” is the title song from the duo’s second mini-album “Chemistry.” “Now” is an upbeat number composed by Shinsadong Tiger, Rado, and LE. The song holds lyrics about a dramatic situation between couples. As fans expected, “Now” features a seductive MV and dance performance
I don’t usually discuss serious topics on the allkpop TV Guide. But this past week, something really big happened, something worth talking about – and it, sadly, didn’t need to happen at all.
I am, of course, talking about the hip-hop duo Leessang‘s announcement that they would be ending all of their stints on variety programs, with Gil on ‘Infinity Challenge‘ and Gary on ‘Running Man’. This is a reaction to the massive backlash they have received over a concert (‘Super 7‘), featuring the ‘Infinity Challenge’ members, that was produced by Leessang Company.
First of all, here’s a quick overview of everything that went down:
Leessang Company (a separate entity from the hip-hop duo, albeit managed by them) announced a ‘Super 7′ concert a few months ago featuring the Infinity Challenge members, meant as a project for their loyal fans who had waited for them throughout the entire MBC strike
