YG Entertainment artists have had a massive year, with releases from both iKON and BLACKPINK dominating the airwaves and charts in Korea.

Melon have now revealed their daily chart rankings for the year, and YG artists have spent an astonishing 118 days at No.1 collectively! That means that YG artists were the top artists for more than a third of the year to date.

iKON lead with 40 daily No.1s, mainly thanks to "Love Scenario" but also "Killing Me". They're followed by BLACKPINK with 30 No.1s, BIGBANG's "Flower Road" with 18, Jennie's "SOLO" with 14, MINO's recent comeback "FIANCE" with 12 and WINNER with 4 No.1s on the daily charts.

A massive achievement for the label who have had their fair share of ups and downs this year, from the failure of MIXNINE to PSY leaving the company, and three more BIGBANG members joining the army.

Congrats to the artists!
