SNSD & KARA put on a second week of fierce competition for #1 on Mnet charts

Girls' Generation

The girl groups SNSD and Kara have set up for a fierce fight as “music queens.”

For the second week in a row, SNSD and Kara have occupied #1 and #2 on music portal Mnet.com’s rankings.

SNSD’s <Gee> has been a powerhouse on the charts, setting a record of 8-straight weks at #1, while Kara’s new song <Honey> has been closely on the tails of SNSD since last week.

In addition, Kara is ahead of SNSD by 7 spots in the download ranking, rising to #2 in a strong jump.

The two groups have put up a serious fight, not yielding to the threads of the other male singers and groups.

<Insomnia>, Wheesung’s new song that was released last week, was #1 in the download ranking, and rose 18 spots in the overall chart to #3, eye-ing the circumstance above.

The song is a Korean remake of Craig David’s song, and its recently released music video indeed was hugely popular.

FT Island’s <Bad Woman> and SS501’s <Boys Over Flowers> OST song <Because I’m a Fool> each occupy #4 and #5, joining the competition.

Mnet Media said, “Starting with SNSD, then Kara, SS501, Someday, After School’s promotions have created a flourishing period. Out of these, SNSD and Kara have become the representative female groups, setting the standard at the top.”

Dynamic Duo’s <Beyond the Wall> jumped 50 spots from last week to #18, Monday Kids’ Lee Jinsung’s <Sorry> made a huge jump of 63 spots to be #22, drawing a lot of attention by occupying #10 in the download rankings. Also, Sori’s <Real Lips> rose 69 spots to #55, reflecting its popularity.

Especially since a card company’s commercial used Dynamic Duo’s song <Beyond the Wall> from their first single album as its background music, its received a huge response from fans, reaffirming its successful release.

This weeks ranking includes Nam Gyuri’s <Face I miss> (#35) and Park Junghyun’s <Secret> (#66), Park Sungmin’s <The Days I Long For You> (#81), and J’s <Sweet Dream>, Lee Sunhee’s <Love…>, and Davichi’s <I Caused an Accident> have newly entered the top 100.
