With four chart debutants flying up the business end of the OH! Chart, anything can happen in terms of the results. Very small margins tell the tale from who wins and who loses in Week #7. Who stunned the field this week?
How the OH! Chart system works:
The chart is divided into three different categories: Gaon Streaming and Downloads (55%), Hanteo Physical Sales (25%), and OH User Voting (20%). OH users are allowed to vote and have a say in the overall chart ranks of certain songs each week. OH users can vote for more than one nominee but cannot vote for the same nominee more than once. Every week, data from the three categories will be gathered and weighted accordingly. The artists with the 10 highest scores will make it onto the chart.

Fantagio Entertainment’s resident boy group ASTRO pulled a surprise by easily winning the physicals category with 54,790 copies. Highlight secured second place after selling 24,406 copies. Last week’s champions SEVENTEEN ensured boy groups took the top three spots with 20,522 copies.
