24 Apr 2017 - 2:28 PM  UPDATED 24 Apr 2017 - 2:28 PM

After topping the Top 30 for 5 weeks in a row with "Fine", Taeyeon's streak at No.1 has been broken by HIGHLIGHT (The Artist Formerly Known As BEAST)! The group has managed to top the Australian Asian Pop Chart with their debut hit single "Plz Don’t Be Sad," giving the boys their first ever No.1. As for Taeyeon, the Girls' Generation leader slips four spots to No.5.

"Plz Don't Be Sad" managed to swept almost all the music show wins during the first few weeks of April, and was also a strong performer in the Korean music charts, such as Melon, Naver and Genie. A big congratulations to HIGHLIGHT for their massively popular "debut" single!

As for new songs, there are 2 new entries in the Top 30 this week. Coming in with an impressive debut at No.9 is IU’s pre-release ballad "Can’t Love You Anymore (ft. Oh hyuk)," and with her previous track "Through The Night" still holding strong at No.4, the singer has accomplished a rare feat of having 2 songs in the Top 10.

WINNER is the next notable artist on the Top 30 this week, climbing 9 spots to No.6 with their single "Really Really". Their latest album "Fate Number For" has continued to perform well on charts around the world, with "Really Really" managing to stay in the Top 3 of Billboard’s World Digital Songs Sales Chart. With this current run of success, WINNER definitely have a chance to be No.1 next week for the Top 30. Congratulations, boys!
