K-Indie on Gaon’s Digital Chart, 2012.03.18~2012.03.24

The latest total Korean digital chart from Gaon was presented a couple of days ago, and unlike the week before there are quite a few new entries coming from the realm of Korean indie music.

Busker Busker, runner up on Superstar K3, have just released an album that we’ll be writing more about later this weekend and came out strong with it’s title track. Save for the title track off SHINee‘s latest mini album that made it all the way to the top, Busker Busker actually outdid all other SHINee tracks.

The rest of the new entries we’ve already covered here on the Korean Indie news blog over the past couple of weeks, so check out the tags of this post if you’d like to know more about them.

7. Busker Busker – “이상형” (new)
56. 10cm – “애상” (-12)
95. L & Yerim – “Love U Like U” (-68)
105. Monni – “사랑노래 못 쓰겠다” (new)

K-Indie on Gaon’s Digital Chart, 2012.03.11~2012.03.17

Although last week offered at least a couple of convincing releases there is no sight of any new indie entries on the latest total Korean digital chart from Gaon. Even Shut Up! Flower Boy Band song “Love U Like U” that made it onto last weeks Billboard K-Pop chart is out of sight. What’s worse is half the songs from last week are out. Here’s hoping things’ll look if only a little better next week.

27. L & Yerim – “Love U Like U” (new)
44. 10cm – “애상” (-12)
55. Skull – “쓰레기” (feat. Oksang Dalbit) (-5)
118. Two Months – “The Romantic” (-34)
136. Noblesse & Acoustic Collabo – “Love Diary” (-53)
184. 10cm – “안아줘요” (-47)
188. Verbal Jint – “좋아보여” (feat. The Black Skirts) (-19)

Update 2012-03-31: Turns out that L & Yerim did make it last week. Must’ve mistyped when searching the page. Sorry!

K-indie on Gaon’s Digital Chart, 2012.03.04~2012.03.10

The Gaon charts covering last week are out and for the Korean digital chart we again find Big Bang holding up the top spots. Looking to the indie related entries we find three songs out and three new songs in, but also 10cm‘s “안아줘요” climbing back into the top 200 at a rate earning it a ‘hot’ mark rather than letting us see exactly how many positions it has gained since last time.

32. 10cm – “애상” (-)
50. Skull – “쓰레기” (feat. Oksang Dalbit) (new)
83. Noblesse & Acoustic Collabo – “Love Diary” (-16)
84. Two Months – “The Romantic” (-15)
129. Annyeongbada – “악마” (-53)
131. Standing Eggs – “둘이 아닌가 봐” (with Christina Love Lee) (-57)
134. Goonamguayeoridingstella – “서울사람” (new)
137. 10cm – “안아줘요” (re)
156. Taru – “봄이 왔다” (-45)
169. Verbal Jint – “좋아보여” (feat. The Black Skirts) (-20)
181. Park Jiyoon – “나무가 되는 꿈” (-50)
184. Peterpan Complex – “첫사랑” (new)

Although Peterpan Complex have been promoting their fifth full-length album with a music video for “감정을 삼키고”, it is their second main track of the album that has made it to the chart.

Those looking to learn a bit more on Skull will want to read this recent interview from CJ E&M enewsWorld: [Interview] Skull: Korea′s Lone Reggae Musician. The interview itself does not touch specifically on the collaboration with Oksang Dalbit, but it provides some insight into reggae in Korea.

The Goonamguayeoridingstella track is the opening track off the Seoul Seoul Seoul 2CD compilation. Brief samples of all songs on the album can be found on Round & Round’s SoundCloud.

10cm Take Position 20 on Billboard’s K-Pop Chart after 8th Week

After eight weeks on the Billboard Korea K-Pop Hot 100, 10cm‘s “애상” is now down to position 20–losing five spots since the week before as the chart for week of March 10 was published. Three artists saw their song debuting in the top 10 whereas Brave Girls with their “요즘 너” entered a couple of spots above 10cm’s current position.

Climbing past 10cm since last week is Kim Bum Soo’s “애인있어요“–a Lee Eun Mi cover released as part of Yoon Il Sang’s 1st Anniversary project just like 10cm’s “애상”. Also climbing past 10cm are Hyorin, Jiyeon and Ailee with their “Super Star” from drama Dream High 2. This leaves 10cm falling behind Block B‘s “NalinA (난리나)” whereas Na Yoon Kwon and Baek Ji Young duet “겁이나서” and Lee Young Hyun with her Park Wan Gyu cover “천년의 사랑” from I Am A Singer fell behind 10cm.

Falling out of the top 50 since last week, now only traceable through the Biggest Fall tab when you don’t have access to, are Sung Joon‘s “무단횡단” (now on spot 62) and Two Months‘ “The Romantic” (now on spot 64). Also missing since last week is Park Jiyoon’s “나무가 되는 꿈 (Tree of Life)“.

After seeing almost her full new album on Gaon’s Korean digital chart last time, Park Jiyoon has had to see all but one of the songs fall out of the top 200 till this week. However counting no less than 6 newcomers with some indie connection the chart our weekly chart extract does not look all that empty anyway.

25. 10cm – “애상” (-7)
50. Two Months – “The Romantic” (-34)
65. Park Jiyoon – “나무가 되는 꿈” (-5)
81. Taru – “봄이 왔다” (new)

133. Taru – “Summer Day” (-36)
150. The Kitchen – “크로크무슈” (new)
170. OK Punk! – “Not The End” (-5)
184. 10cm – “사랑은 은하수 다방에서” (+13)
200. Mongoose – “이른 한강에서” (new)


10cm Move Slowly Down Billboard’s K-Pop Chart

For the Billboard Korea K-Pop Hot 100 week of March 3, 10cm are down four spots since the previous week to position 15 on the chart. Two songs debuted higher than 10cm’s current position–Lee Seung Chul‘s “잊었니” from the Feast of the Gods (신들의 만찬) soundtrack at position 6 and miss A‘s “Touch” at position 14. Three songs that debuted lower on the chart last week climbed past 10cm and with three weeks on the chart now Jay Park too has climbed past 10cm with his “Know Your Name“. Instead falling behind 10cm were Monday Kiz and their “Shadow (미행)” alongside K.Will‘s “내가 싫다”

Falling quite a bit since last week was Two Months‘ “The Romantic”, moving all the way down from position 14 to position 40. A couple of indie related songs debuted on the same segment of the chart: there is Sung Joon with the Lee Jae Hak (of Loveholics) “무단횡단” on position 32 and there is Park Jiyoon with her “나무가 되는 꿈 (Tree of Life)” partly written by Kwon Soon Gwan of No Reply.

10cm Remain at Spot 11 on Billboard K-Pop Hot 100

After moving down to position 11 on the Billboard Korea K-Pop Hot 100 last week, 10cm and their “애상” are shown remaining at the same spot as the chart for the week of February 25 was published. This week also sees variety show soundtrack “The Romantic” from Two Months debut at position 14.

Monday Kiz debuted above 10cm with their “Shadow (미행)” whereas Davichi’s song “Will Think of You (생각날거야)” and Na Yoon Kwon and Baek Ji Young duet “겁이나서”, that both debuted lower down on the chart last week, climbed past. The chart also shows Beast‘s “이럴 줄 알았어“, Miryo‘s “Dirty” and Beast member Jung Hyun‘s “너 없이 사는 것도 (Living without You)” falling behind 10cm since last week.

Much like Miryo’s “Dirty”, her “Party Rock” featuring The KOXX has done a bit of falling since last week–in the case of “Party Rock” dropping a whole 44 spots putting it at position 78.

Turns out we had missed Park Jiyoon entering the chart with the Yongrin arranged “Quiet Dream” last week, but we’ll be keeping track of it from now on. Since this list is all compiled manually there’s bound to be the occasional mistake. Feel free to point it out when you spot one and let us know if there is any artist you think is missing.

From now on we’ll also keep track of duo Two Months as they for the first time have entered the chart with a song outside of their competition in SuperStar K3. The song “The Romantic” was released on a digital single with the same name on February 10th. In addition to the regular version the single includes a piano version and an instrumental version of “The Romantic”. It was released as part 1 of the soundtrack for the tvN ‘real love variety’ show with the same name.
