The King of K-Pop, TAEMIN, makes his grand return to OH! Chart. He is in the company of stunning soloist HwaSa and JYP’s newest “nation’s girl group” ITZY.
How the OH! Chart System Works:
The chart is divided into three different categories: Gaon Digital Score (60%), Hanteo Physical Sales (15%), and OH User Voting (25%). For each weekly cycle of the chart, OH users can vote for more than one nominee. However, they cannot vote for the same nominee more than once. Chart Masters will then gather the data and crunch the numbers. Once an artist achieves three wins with one song (a triple crown!), this song will be excluded from future charts.
Despite sajaegi accusations, Woody keeps on slaying with his bop Fire Up, scoring 50,022,863 points, which puts him in first place for digitals. MAMAMOO‘s HwaSa makes her solo debut with Twit and proves she is a force to with reckoned with, earning herself second place with 36,475,841 digital points. And right on HwaSa’s heels, with just over 11,000 points between them, is MC The Max, scoring 36,464,731 digital points with After You’ve Gone.
TAEMIN surpasses his previous first week sales record, set back in 2016 with Press It, by selling 76,106 copies of his 2nd Mini Album WANT. Astro sells 18,550 copies of All Light, making them second. And rounding out the top three is Seventeen, selling 6,424 copies of YOU MADE MY DAWN.
GG stans continue to thrive in the OH! Chart polls and as such, ITZY has come out on top with 30 votes. In second place, ARMYs contribute 24 votes in support of BTS‘ IDOL, which has returned to the chart this week, proving their longevity. Finally, MAMAMOO‘s HwaSa rounds out the top three in voting with 17 votes.
Overall, Kpop’s loveable, beautiful and talented TAEMIN takes his first win on OH! Chart this year, scoring 13.51 points with help from overwhelming physical sales. ITZY lands in second place with 12.03 thanks to a combo of digital points and votes. And last but not least, MAMAMOO‘s HwaSa comes in third with 10.68 as her total score.
