Busker Busker Reclaim the Top of Billboard’s K-Pop Hot 100

With the Billboard Korea K-Pop Hot 100 for the week of July 7, Busker Busker have again claimed the top spot, this time with the lead track from their new mini album. The rest of the songs also entered the chart — this while songs from their first album, released three months ago, still linger on the chart. With thirteen weeks behind them currently three of the first album songs are currently listed among those that have spent the longest time on the chart, only six songs having been around longer. Here’s what can be seen of Busker Busker on the K-Pop Hot 100 without a Billboard biz account:

12. “기다려주세요” (new)
37. “벚꽃 엔딩” (-3)
55. “여수 밤바다” (-)
67. “첫사랑” (-7)

Progressing slightly since last week is 10cm‘s “Only U”, up one slot to position 41. “Good Morning”, the Verbal Jint collaboration with 10cm’s Kwon Jung Yeol, has instead moved down seven spots to position 14.

Climbing a lot since last week is Big Baby Driver‘s “Spring I Love You Best”. The song had entered at position 90, but now rests at position 45. Another newcomer on the upper half of the chart is Kim Jin Pyo‘s “아저씨” featuring J Rabbit, debuting at position 31.

10cm Enter Billboard’s K-Pop Hot 100 with Only U

The Billboard Korea K-Pop Hot 100 chart for the week of June 30 has been out for a few days. After entering the chart last week, Verbal Jint and Kwon Jung Yeol of 10cm had to make way for f(x)‘s “Electric Show” and can now be found at position 7. As of this week Kwon Jung Yeol also has a second entry on the chart with 10cm’s “Only U” debuting at position 42.

This week we find Busker Busker‘s “벚꽃 엔딩” down four slots since last week, now residing at position 34. “여수 밤바다” has moved down five slots to position 55 and can now be traced without a Billboard biz account only through the ‘weeks on chart’ listing, where “벚꽃 엔딩” and “여수 밤바다” with their 12 weeks on the chart are currently listed as number 8 and 9 respectively.

The other two indie entries spotted on the chart last week have since taken some of the biggest falls. Epitone Project‘s “새벽녘” dropped 31 slots down to position 49 whereas Guckkasten‘s “한잔의 추억” can now be found at position 98, a full 53 slots lower than the week before.

K-Indie on Gaon’s Digital Chart, 2012.06.10~2012.06.16

The new charts from Gaon are out. We find that Busker Busker moved down just one spot with their first full-length, now sitting at position 10. Gate Flowers’ first album has now fallen down to position 73 whereas the soundtrack of Shut Up! Flower Boy Band has climbed to position 79. New on the album chart is RossyPP‘s 29, though none of the songs made it to the track chart.

After debuting in the top 5 of Gaon’s Korean album chart last week, Epitone Project‘s second full-length album has now left the top 100, though all songs from the album remains on the Korean digital chart.

Many of the other songs that debuted on the chart last week have since climbed a bit, including Verbal Jint‘s collaboration with 10cm‘s Kwon Jung Yeol. The release also seems to have increased interest in his previous collaboration with The Black Skirts.

Among the indie related newcomers on the digital chart this week there’s both Standing Egg and Shin Se Kyung with Sweden Laundry. There is also Daybreak’s Lee Won Suk, that has recorded the song “러닝맨” for MBC drama I Do I Do (아이두 아이두) released as part 3 of the soundtrack on June 13th.

Busker Busker Joined by Guckkasten and Epitone Project on Billboard’s K-Pop Hot 100

In spite of several high profile releases last week, as Billboard published their Korea K-Pop Hot 100 for the week of June 23 Busker Busker still remained in the visible top half of the chart. “벚꽃 엔딩” had moved five spots down to position 30 whereas we may be seeing the last of “여수 밤바다”, that had moved down eight spots to position 50. With eleven weeks total behind them, the two are both among the longest lasting songs currently on the chart as the one week older “이상형” has left the chart completely.

It turns out Guckkasten had entered the chart already last week with their rendition of Lee Jang Hee‘s “한잔의 추억” from I Am A Singer 2, but as it debuted on position 56 it was not until after moving up nine spots, making it up to position 45, that it became visible to those without a Billboard biz account.

Newcomers on the chart include Verbal Jint, that together with 10cm‘s Kwon Jung Yeol debuted on position 6 with “Good Morning”. Epitone Project also entered the chart, with new album lead track “새벽녘” debuting on position 18 and “다음날 아침”, featuring Han Hee Jung, debuting on position 47.

K-Indie on Gaon’s Digital Chart, 2012.06.03~2012.06.09

Last Thursday came the Gaon charts for the week prior and after seeing the number of indie related titles on the chart decreasing over the last few weeks it has once again been filled by all the titles from a new album — this time Epitone Project‘s second full-length album which also debuted on the album chart at position five.

Busker Busker’s first album stayed put on position 9 on the album chart, but the songs from it have been falling. “골목길” even left the top 200.

The first full-length album from Gate Flowers lost fifteen spots and is now number 41 on the album chart. Nell‘s Slip Away lost three spots, now at position 84, whereas the soundtrack of Shut Up! Flower Boy Band currently holds position 94 on the album chart, loosing twenty seven spots since last week. After six weeks total PeppertonesBeginners Luck has now left the album chart top 100.

On the total digital track chart we find Verbal Jint‘s collaboration with 10cm‘s Kwon Jung Yeol. The position is lower than what we saw from his collaboration with The Black Skirts last year, but it does make its debut higher.

Guckkasten did remarkably well when making their first appearance on I Am A Singer 2. Even so the song doesn’t place as high as the songs from I Am A Singer used to, but that is likely from a combination of I Am A Singer 2 having yet to regain the popularity of the original series while Big Bang and Wonder Girls both released new material the same week. As can be seen from the chart, Guckkasten’s appearance on I Am A Singer 2 has already served to increase interest in their older songs.

Among the singles entering the chart there are the latest offerings from Broccoli, you too? and Yozoh. There is also the song recorded by Park Jiyoon for MBC drama I Do I Do (아이두 아이두), released on June 4th.

Busker Busker Behind Songs Staying Longest on Billboard’s K-Pop Hot 100

Busker Busker still remain in the top half of Billboard’s Korea K-Pop Hot 100 as the chart for the week of June 16 was published. With many big k-pop names making a comeback last week, Busker Busker’s “벚꽃 엔딩” has been pushed down nine spots since last week to position 25. Meanwhile their “여수 밤바다” has been pushed even further, down twelve spots to position 42, whereas the rest of the songs from their first album still on the chart are currently in the lower half, only visible to those with a Billboard biz account.

Busker Busker’s “이상형” was revealed earlier than the rest of the album and has now spent a total of eleven weeks on the chart. As a consequence it is currently the eighth longest lasting track on the chart, a position shared with Baek Ji Young‘s “한참 지나서”. The ranking shows “이상형” at position 96 so it’s uncertain whether it’ll last another week, however the tenth longest lasting songs on the chart have no more than ten weeks behind them, qualifying both “벚꽃 엔딩” and “여수 밤바다” for the position alongside a number of other Busker Busker songs lower down the chart.

Nell‘s Slip Away that re-entered the album chart last week has instead fallen a bit, down twelve spots to position 81.

Gate Flowers released their first full-length album Times on May 29th and it ended up debuting on the album chart at position 26. Kim Ji Soo‘s mini album Vintage Man om May 30th and landed it at position 37 on the album chart. However, unlike Gate Flowers, Kim Ji Soo can also find the new lead track on the digital chart:

Nell‘s Slip Away left the album chart last week but has now made a comeback at position 69. The Shut Up! Flower Boy Band soundtrack has instead fallen twenty size spots down to position 75 and PeppertonesBeginner’s Luck has fallen even more, down 41 spots to position 89.

After three weeks of climbing Gaon’s Korean album chart, Busker Busker‘s first album has now fallen back to position 7. The falling is reflected also on the total digital Korean chart, where the songs on the album have fallen more than ever before.

Climbing a bit on the album chart is Peppertones Beginner’s Luck that moves up two spots to position 48. Instead moving down two spots, to position 49, is the soundtrack for Shut Up! Flower Boy Band.

The new Free Market album My Present entered the album chart at position 96, but failed to make any mark on the digital track chart. Instead the only new indie related tracks entering the chart are more on the mainstream side, with Daylight‘s new single and a new song from Park Jiyoon.

Busker Busker Stay Put on Billboard’s K-Pop Hot 100

The Billboard Korea K-Pop Hot 100 for the week of May 26 is out and out of the indie acts we’ve spotted on it recently only Busker Busker remain visible in the top 50. They had six songs there last week and all remain this week, though at somewhat lower chart positions:

6. “벚꽃 엔딩” (-2)
18. “여수 밤바다” (-4)
22. “첫사랑” (-7)
30. “꽃송이가” (-5)

IU‘s “복숭아 (Peach)” has now positioned itself below Busker Busker’s top track “벚꽃 엔딩”, but instead her “Every End of the Day (스무 살의 봄 – 하루 끝)” debuts at the very top spot. Also debuting above the track is Busker Busker’s fellow Superstar K3 contestants Ulala Session‘s “아름다운 밤 (Beautiful Night)“. Further contributing to the lower position of “벚꽃 엔딩” is Baek Ji Young‘s “목소리 (Voice)” that while debuting on the chart last week has since done a bit of climbing.

It’s yet another week with Busker Busker climbing Gaon’s album chart while the album songs move down a bit on the digital track chart. Their first album currently holds position 2, two up since last week.

Peppertones have been falling on both track and album chart, with their new album Beginner’s Luck falling twenty four spots down to position 50. After having no less than three albums on Gaon’s album chart last week, Nell now have none. The soundtrack for Shut Up! Flower Boy Band (닥치고 꽃미남 밴드) has made a sudden jump up to position 47 on the album chart.

Besides new positions and Nell’s “Cliff Parade” falling out of the top 200, looking at the Korean indie music tracks on Gaon’s total Korean digital chart there aren’t that many changes since last time.

After keeping position 2 on Billboard’s Korea K-Pop Hot 100 chart for three weeks, as the chart for the week of May 19 was revealed Busker Busker had to see their album lead track give way to two other songs.

Much like last week Busker Busker could see their songs falling on the digital chart while their first album did a bit of climbing on the album chart, this time moving up one spot to position 4.

PeppertonesBeginners Luck has been moving down 18 spots on the album chart, landing it at position 26. The songs have taken an even bigger fall, with only album lead track “행운을 빌어요” still in the top 200 of the Korean total digital chart.

Things are looking similar for Nell, with Slip Away down fifteen spots to position 58 on the album chart and only two songs from the album still on the digital chart. On the positive side, some of Nell’s older albums have seen big sales increases with Separation Anxiety from 2008 landing at position 74 and Healing Process from 2006 at position 93.

Many indie songs fell out of the top 200 on the digital chart with only two songs from Oksang Dalbit‘s new mini album Each Other.
