As expected, the legendary G-Dragon reigns supreme on the Gaon Chart this week with his Kwon Ji-Yong comeback album. Lead single “Untitled, 2014” soars straight to No. 1, followed by “Super Star” at No. 4 and “Bulls**t” at No. 6.
Unfortunately, due to G-Dragon’s album being in the form of a USB stick, it’s ineligible to rank on the album chart.
Climbing to No. 2 this week is Produce 101’s project single “Never.” Meanwhile, another song from the show, “Oh Little Girl,” jumps up to No. 7, while “Knock” moves to No. 10. The success of the various tracks from the show only prove just how popular the franchise has become.
Speaking of Produce 101, season 1 star Kim Chungha makes a splash with her solo debut, “Why Don’t You Know.” The dance-pop track arrives at No. 23, which is higher than all of the Produce 101 girl groups with their respective singles.
Another solo songstress doing well is balladeer Gummy. The former YG Entertainment artist makes her big return this week as “II YO” debuts at No. 34.
Less successful are Starship Entertainment’s Cosmic Girls, who come in at No. 77 with their latest single “Happy.” It’s a drop from their last two hits, “Secret” and “I Wish,” which both peaked at No. 49. Although the song is selling poorly digitally, the group’s physical sales are up as their first studio album, Happy Moment, debuts at No. 3 - their highest position yet.
Taking top spot on the album chart is SEVENTEEN’s Al1, which returns to No. 1 again. On their tail is FT Island’s 10th anniversary album Over 10 Years at No. 2, while DAY6’s compilation album Sunrise debuts at No. 4.
Next week, look out for new entries from T-ara and NCT 127.
