K-Pop Hot 100: Tae Yeon Claims No. 1, Busker Busker Return With Year-Old Single

S.M.Entertainment Co., Ltd.

  • As speculated last week, the leader of Girls’ Generation Tae Yeon takes No. 1 on the K-Pop Hot 100 with her ballad “And One” created for the popular Korean drama, “The Winter, The Wind Blows.” Gummy, who held the No. 1 spot for two weeks with her own ballad for the TV show, falls to No. 4.


“The Winter, The Wind Blows” is still an unstoppable force in its time slot remaining the No. 1 drama for Wednesdays/Thursdays with ratings rising to 15.3%, according to Billboard Korea. The drama is reported to wrap this week and with a major finale sure to coax in loads of viewers, the song contributions to the drama could very well continue ruling the chart.

TaeYeon has now ruled the chart with three different songs as Girls’ Generation has earned two K-Pop Hot 100 No. 1s with “The Boys” and “I Got A Boy.”

Akdong Musician (a co-ed band comprised of two siblings Lee Chan Hyuk and Lee Soo Hyun known as the “prodigy” band on reality singing competition “K-pop Star 2”) ranks in at No. 2. Their eighth self-composed track on the show titled “Crescendo” and is about dealing with the growing pains of being teenagers all the while learning to find confidence and courage. The song rises from No. 8 last week. Watch a live performance of the track here:


Within the Top 10, 2AM falls from No. 3 to No. 5 with the title track to their “One Spring Day” album. Last week, the boys landed six songs from the new album on the K-Pop Hot 100. While Tae Yeon is celebrating her soundtrack single victory, other made for TV songs are falling as Davichi’s “Turtle” falls from No. 2 to No. 3 while The One’s “Winter Love” falls from No. 5 to No. 6. Lee Hi’s soulful new single “It’s Over” tumbles three positions to No. 7 (from No. 4) while SISTAR19’s “Gone Not Around Any Longer” falls two to No. 9 (from No. 6).

Girl’s Day makes a triumphant return on the charts with their sexy new single “Expectation” beginning strong with a No. 9 debut. Their first full-length album, also titled “Expectation,” shows major growth and further promise from the foursome.


Remarkably, indie trio Busker Busker re-enter the Top 10 at No. 10 with their former K-Pop Hot 100 No. 1 debut single, “Cherry Blossom Ending.” The track is a feel-good track that became a representative spring song for South Korea last year, which helps explain why the song is dominating the charts again.


Elsewhere on the chart, Sultry vocalist Jung-in released her third mini-album with lead single “Those Obvious Words” which soars to the No. 17 spot from No. 42 last week. “Those Obvious Words” was scripted by Leessang’s Gary and is a serene ballad that displays a woman’s vulnerability to a man she loves. The song has revealing lyrics like, “I wanted to believe those obvious words, because I loved you more than you loved me.” Jung-in takes a departure away from her usual musical style of powerful ad-libbing and instead highlights the delicate nature of the song with a soft vocal approach. The music video, directed by Ryu Hyun Kyung, features Jung-in’s labelmate Tiger JK and actress Jo Eun Ji, who portray the ecstasy, and agony, of falling in and out of love.
