Long time no see..!

Here’s Kpop chart this week (credit : soompi)

1. (+1) T-Ara – 너 때문에 미쳐 (Crazy Because Of You) *** 1 WEEK NO. 1 ***
Score: 951
Genre: Pop / Dance

Music: Cho Young Soo, Kim Tae Hyun / Lyrics: Wheesung
Album: T-Ara Vol. 1 Repackaged Version Track 1
Comment: With the album sales score of their repackaged album being taken into account this week, T-Ara overtook Kara for the No. 1 spot with their latest hit “Crazy Because of You”. This song was made by an all-star combination: co-composed by Jo Young Soo and Kim Tae Hyun and penned by Wheesung. This dance track has a pop feel with electronic sounds. 2010 is not even three months in and this is already T-Ara’s second No. 1 song and third top 10 hits. Congratulations.

2. (-1) Kara – 루팡 (Lupin)
Score: 931
Genre: Pop / Dance

Music: Han Jae Ho, Kim Seung Soo / Lyrics: Song Soo Yoon
Album: Kara mini-album Vol. 3 Track 2
Comment: After two weeks at the top, Kara fell back one spot to No. 2 with “Lupin”. After surprisingly winning the top female group on our last year’s Soompi Gayo Award, Kara continues their strong showing on our chart. The title song “Lupin” is from their recently released 3rd mini-album of the same name. Kara vowed to return to a more fierce image on this mini-album, a concept that did not fare too well when they used it on their debut album. But that was then and this is now. Kara has developed a large and loyal fan base now and fans are more receptive of their change in concept this time.

3. (+3) Outsider – 주변인 (Outsider)
Score: 807
Genre: Hip-hop

Album: Outsider Vol. 2.5 Track 2
Comment: Outsider broke into the mainstream last year with his fastest rap and the big hit “Loner”. Now he is back with his 2.5 album. The title song literally means “Outsider” as well, and it moves up three more spots into the top 3 this week. The song has dramatic beats and was composed by Master Key and Rhymer and penned by the artist himself. Fans will have a chance to listen to Outsider’s unique fast rap once again.

4. (+3) Beast – Shock
Score: 804
Genre: Pop / Dance

Album: Beast mini-album Vol. 2 Track 2
Comment: Fast rising boy band Beast scores their first top 5 hit, moving up threes spots this week with “Shock”, from their mini-album “Shock Of The New Era”. Shock” which was composed by Shinsadong Tiger and Lee Sang Ho combo, has powerful synth loops, comparable to heavy metal guitar rifts and has exciting rhythms.

5. (+24) Epik High – Run *** BIGGEST MOVER OF THE WEEK ***
Score: 651
Genre: Hip-hop

Album: Epik High Special Album “Epilouge” Track 2
Comment: Reducing to a duo at the moment as DJ Tukutz is being enlisted in the army, Epik High comes back with a special album “Epilouge”. The title track “Run” is our biggest mover this week, moving up 24 big spots into the top 5. “Run” revolves around the theme of hope. These are for those with “ill” from the society or those with high hopes but restrained from reality. The song tells listeners to continue to “run” until the end; its increasing rhythms help bring out this effect.

Score: 597
Genre: Pop Ballad

Album: K.Will digital single “Present” Track 1
Comment: Another big mover into the top 10 this week is K.Will’s latest hit “Present”. K.Will returns this spring with a new single, “Present” featuring hip-hop rapper Eun Ji Won.
