“Dynamite” – a four-month-old song. Not just that, but they came as the top performer in all categories: physical sales, digitals, and voting. It’s clear that no one comes close to Bangtan’s popularity and it might remain this way for many years.not every day that an artist appears twice in the OH! Chart top three. BTS beat the odds and topped with their new single “Life Goes On”, all the while being the runners up with
However, just because BTS dominated does not mean that others are not of note. Let us see who else clinched a spot in November’s top 15…

BTS continues to dominate the monthly charts. Four-month-old “Dynamite” came in first with 130,109,398 gaon index points. Im Chang-jung proved that he is a ballad king and came in second place with 116,413,812 index points for “Love Should Not Be Harsh On You”. Coming in third was BLACKPINK’s “Lovesick Girls” which pulled in 111,279,143 index points.
Unsurprisingly, BTS topped November’s physical chart. They came in first as BE sold a whopping 2,655,843 gaon sales. Second place went to ENHYPEN’s Border: Day One, which sold 318,528 units on gaon. Rounding up the top three is MONSTA X’s Fatal Love, which sold a respectable 285,548 gaon units.
November was a huge improvement from October voting wise. Unlike the tragedy that was last month, the top three managed to score five or more votes. BTS continued their domination and received 7 votes for “Life Goes On”. “Dynamite” came in second with 6 votes but was tied with TWICE‘s “I Can’t Stop” me. At third place was rookie group ENHYPEN who received 5 votes for “Given-Taken”.
BTS scored a definitive victory as “Life Goes On” got a total of 18.74 points. They were, however, hot in their own tail as “Dynamite” came in second with an impressive total of 11.46. BLACKPINK rounded up the top three and “Lovesick Girls” got 7.75 points.
A big congratulations to the top 15, and an even bigger congratulations to Gfriend for releasing “Mago” – which sadly did not make the cut (but it is still worthy in our eyes).
Not Sure About What You Just Read? A Quick Recap of OH! CHART
OH! Chart is a monthly music charting system that is unique to the OneHallyu community and OH! Press readers. It tracks top 10 songs on Gaon Monthly Digital Chart and the top five best-selling albums on Gaon Monthly Album Chart. Thus, only data from exceptional performers will be collected for both categories. We will then aggregate the data and rank the songs based on three voting categories: Streaming and Downloads (55% of votes), Physical Sales (20%) and OH! Press Reader Votes (25%). After each full month, OH! Chart will be updated to reflect the best-selling and most-loved songs.
How the Results Are Calculated
The top 10 songs from Gaon Monthly Digital Chart and title songs of the top five albums from Gaon Monthly Album Chart are selected. Only data for exceptional performers from these two charts will be counted towards their scores. Those who perform exceptionally across the board will have the advantage of scoring in all of them. For the final scores, each song’s individual data for one category is divided by the sum of that category, then multiplied by our chosen percentage (i.e. 0.20 for physical sales). The grand totals from all three categories are added together and multiplied by 100, forming the final score.
OH! CHART #1: BTS – Life Goes On
It’s a testament to BTS’ popularity that everything they release turns to gold. They’re fresh off a massive hit – which happened to be entirely in English – and have secured another hit comeback with “Life Goes On”. While this is not my favorite BTS release, I will admit that I admire their tenacity in trying out different musical styles. “Life Goes On” is a little too disbandment-song sounding for my liking, but it expands BTS’ discography nonetheless and I respect that. Congratulations to BTS for not only winning November but the whole year.
