Earlier this week Billboard Korea announced the top songs for the first part of 2018.
On June 14, Billboard Korea introduced the top performing K-pop song for the first half of 2018. According to their article, boy group iKON is the ultimate chart-topper for the first half of the year.
The group’s song “Love Scenario” remained in the top spot for five whole weeks. It had tremendous run from the last week of January to their third week of March, reflecting a similar domination that occurred on Korea’s other music sites.
On another note, the second and third chart-toppers are “Don’t Give it to me” by rapper Loco and Hwasa, and Wanna One’s “Boomerang.” Both songs stayed at the top for about two weeks once they were released, two weeks shy of iKON’s record.
Moreover, to this day, the songs continue to illustrate their popularity by remaining in the top 100. Billboard Korea’s generates the K-Pop 100 and the local chart by compiling weekly streaming numbers, album sales, broadcast numbers, and charts.
