Four songs debut inside the top 10 on this week’s Gaon Download chart, which ranks the bestselling individual songs in South Korea every week. This time around, two of them come from popular solo stars, while a new parody band lands a pair of winners at once, becoming something of a major hit in the meantime.
For the second week in a row, Seventeen runs the show with their new single “Ready To Love.” The track opened in first place last time around, and it’s steady at No. 1, as the EP it’s featured on, Your Choice, also continues to control the Gaon Albums chart for a second spin.
The highest-ranking debut this frame comes from MSG Wannabe, a parody act whose name pokes a bit of fun at the legendary SG Wannabe. The group, of sorts, is fronted by Yoo Jae-suk, the host of the incredibly popular TV show Hangout with Yoo. He releases music under different names from time to time, and now he’s gathered a number of male celebrities to create this band, and two tunes have been shared.
MSG Wannabe may be something of a joke, but it is the only name to appear in more than one spot inside the top 10 on this week’s Gaon Download chart. “Foolish Love” opens at No. 2 while “Only You” launches at No. 4.
In between MSG Wannabe singles comes Brave Girls’ new track “Chi Mat Ba Ram,” which slips just one space, as it kicked off in the runner-up rung last time around.
BTS’s “Butter,” which earns another week as the biggest song in South Korea when looking at all consumption metrics, is a non-mover at No. 5 on this sales-only list.
New at No. 6 is Lee Seung-Yoon’s “What I Wanted You to Hear,” the new track by the winner of the reality singing competition Sing Again.
Steady at No. 7 is Lee Moo-jin’s “Rain and You,” which rose to prominence after being featured on the soundtrack of the TV show Hospital Playlist’s second season.
Aespa’s “Next Level” returns to the top 10 on the Gaon Download chart, rising three spots to No. 8. Two spots down, TWICE’s “Alcohol-Free” backtracks a pair of spaces to No. 10, and it may depart the uppermost tier very soon.
Sandwiched in between those two girl group smashes comes Lim Young-woong with the debtuing “BK Love,” which enters the tally at No. 9.
