Just two weeks ago IU broke her own Gaon Chart record with “Through The Night.” Now she's gone and done it again, this time with her Oh Hyuk collaboration “Can’t Love You Anymore.” The R&B duet dethrones WINNER’s “Really Really” to give IU her twelth No. 1 single as a lead artist, and her fifteenth overall - when including featured appearances.
At just 23 years old, IU holds the record for the artist with the most No. 1 singles and the most weeks at No. 1 on the Gaon chart, which was launched in early 2010.
Debuting at No. 2 is Apink’s Jung Eunji with her latest solo single, “This Spring.” It’s her sixth top five entry overall, but one of her few songs not to reach No. 1 (she has four chart-toppers so far).
Meanwhile, Block B’s Zico lands another hit with “She’s a Baby” at No. 4. The slow jam becomes the rapper’s seventh top five single as a lead artist.
Girl group EXID make a solid return with “Night Rather Than Day” entering at No. 9. While it’s their lowest entry since “Up & Down” became their sole No. 1 hit two years ago, they’ve still managed to make the top ten with every single release since then.
EXO’s Baekhyun arrives at No. 12 with “Take You Home,” while Davichi star Lee Haeri’s “Pattern” comes in at No. 25.
One rookie group showing some serious longevity are Pledis Entertainment’s PRISTIN with “Wee Woo.” The song has gone up two spots this week to No. 66, and is still in Melon’s top 100. The song initially had a disappointing performance during its debut week, especially when compared to the other Produce 101 girl groups, but it’s now turned out to be a real sleeper hit and could end up being the highest-selling single to come from the Produce 101 groups (which currently includes DIA, WJSN, and Gugudan).
Last but not least is TEEN TOP, whose comeback track “Love Is” enters at No. 91. Although it’s their lowest-charting single, the group’s new album, High Five, has topped the Gaon album chart to become TEEN TOP’s fourth No. 1 album overall.
