Soyu and Jungigo’s “Some” not only repeated as No. 1 on our chart this week, but it becomes the first song in more than five and a half years to achieve a perfect score of 1000 points. The last song did it was Lee Hyori’s “U-Go-Girl” back in August Week 3 of 2008.
“Some” swept all the music shows last week and was also topped both GAON and Billboard Korea. It is still winning on music shows this week, and will be the favorite to be our No. 1 song for the third consecutive weeks next week. The question is whether “Some” can have another perfect score. We’ll find out next week.
Coming in a distant second to “Some” is our highest top 10 entry this week. Moving up 19 spots to No. 2 is a very special collaboration between Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon and SHINee’s Jonghyun
We have a new No. 1 this week!
“Some,” a duet between SISTAR’s Soyu and R&B artist Junggigo, jumps from No. 26 all the way to the top spot this week, overtaking our three-week champion Girl’s Day and their “Something.”
Soyu has become a favorite duet partner for male K-Pop artists as this is the third time she’s helping a relatively unknown male artist to get into the spotlight. In 2012, Soyu lent her vocal to Geeks’ “Officially Missing You, Too.” Last year, she had a No. 1 song “Stupid In Love” with Mad Clown. Now, four months later, she strikes again with this new No. 1 song “Some.” Geeks’ Lilboi returns the favor to be the featured rapper on this song
Girl’s Day’s “Something” continues to dominate and remains No. 1 for a third week. It becomes the first song since EXO’s big hit “Growl” last year to record three straight weeks on top of our chart. Taking full advantage of the slower months of K-Pop at the beginning of the year, Girl’s Day establishes themselves as one of the rising girl groups (we have another two in this week’s top 10).
Ailee’s “Singing Got Better” continues to hold the No. 2 spot. After topping the chart a month ago, this song stays strong at No. 2 for the past three weeks.
Moving up two spots to score their first top three hit is another rising girl group AOA. Their song “Miniskirt” won on SBS Inkigayo last week, their first ever music program win
Happy Lunar New Year to all our readers.
Due to Korea’s Lunar New Year celebrations, not many singers released new songs. As a result, our music chart is quieter this week and the top three songs remain the same as last week. Girl’s Day’s “Something” becomes the first song to repeat as No. 1 this year. This week it further pulls away from Ailee’s “Singing Got Better,” which remains at No. 2. B1A4’s multiple music show winning song “Lonely” is still at No. 3.
There are two new songs in the top 10 this week. Moving up 19 spots to No. 8 is Hong Dae Kwang’s “No Answer.” It is the title track from his single album “The Silver Lining.” and is an acoustic guitar style mid-tempo ballad that showcases Hong Dae Kwang’s sweet voice
The Got7 members shared a piece of advice they got from JYPE’s CEO Park Jin Young.
Attending a photoshoot with magazine Grazia, the Got7 members caught the eyes of the staff with their respectful attitude and stylish looks.
During an interview with Grazia, the members chose Jackson as the most confident one and Mark as ‘the most Korean’ member out of the foreign members.
Mark said, “I can adapt to a new environment quickly since I’ve lived in different countries since I was young. Jackson can’t eat spicy food, but BamBam and I like it.”
Choosing reading as his favorite hobby, Jr. said, “Taking acting lessons has broadened my expression in singing and dancing and since it requires a lot of imagination, I made reading a new hobby of mine.”

Jr was the first one who showed symptoms and was not able to attend the recording for SBS MTV’s “The Show,” leaving only six members on stage.
Afterwards, the GOT7 members all visited the hospital for a check-up, which is when JB and Youngjae were diagnosed.
It was planned for GOT7 to promote their debut mini-album until the middle of next month. However, since three out of the seven members are sick, they will be temporarily stopping activities
Due to the contraction of swine flu by three out of seven of the members in GOT7, the group will be taking a temporary hiatus.

JYP’s highly anticipated new boy group finally made its debut.
The seven members of Got7 performed Girls Girls Girls on Mnet’s M Countdown on January 15, and finally unveiled itself with head-turning performance.
With JYP being one of the three major agencies in the industry, along with SM and YG Entertainment, all eyes have been on its new idol group, which is inevitably being compared with SM’s EXO and YG’s Winner.
During a recent interview with Newsen, which took place before its debut, Got7 was asked about constantly being mentioned alongside EXO and Winner.
“We didn’t expect this competition set up with EXO and Winner. We don’t really think we are rivals. We have a lot to learn from EXO as well as from Winner. Each group has its unique traits, so we believe that there are elements we can learn from them
