Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – March Week 1

Recommended Posts

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. Their duet “Breath” is  from SM Entertainment’s album “SM The Ballad Vol. 2.” It is about an ex-couple feeling awkward around each other. The two singers show great chemistry in this song.

There is only one other new song in the top 10 this week, and it is also a collaboration. Moving from No. 24 to No. 6 this week is K.Will and new R&B female quartet Mamamoo’s “Peppermint Chocolate.” Mamamoo is the first rookie singer to hit the top 10 this year. Besides K.Will, Wheesung is also featured in this song. “Peppermint Chocolate” relates to couples playing fun mind games with each other before jumping into a relationship. It is a retro style funky R&B song. Mamamoo shows us they are a great vocal group. We’ll definitely more from them this year.
