topped the chart with Fear, Super Junior shoot to the top for the first time ever with dance number SUPER Clap. It’s super shocking that they’ve never actually made it there before, but it’s super true.pparently, the boys aren’t giving up the hot seat at #1 of OH! Chart just yet. After Seventeen
That aside, how did the rest of the October releases fare this month?

Idols still can’t crack into the digital charts – what else is new? For the most part, October sees South Koreans remain adamant not to listen to idols once again. Super Junior is nowhere to be found here. Instead, first up is AKMU who returned in optimal form by scoring 238,910,175 points. Next, we have Jang Beom June with Be Melodramatic OST ‘Your Shampoo Scent in the Flowers‘ scoring 189,564,560 points. Rounding up the top 3 in the digital category is Lim Jae Hyun (prod. 2soo), whose song ‘I’m a little drunk‘ earns a score of 152,070,719 on Gaon.
While Super Junior was elusive in the digital category, the men prove their worth in physical sales by moving 365,751 units of ‘Time Slip‘. Their selling power has seen better days, but they’re one of the few second-generation groups that can still sell more than shinier acts these days. By ‘shinier acts’, we mean MONSTA X who moves 193,121 units of their seventh EP ‘Follow: Find You‘. And then there’s second-generation NU’EST who records 190,078 sales of their mini-album ‘The Table‘. It’s a bit of a men’s club this month. We need to do better as a society.
When it comes to votes, the loyal ELF has spoken – Super Junior secures the most number of votes with 15 votes. Rookie group TXT hasn’t left much of an impact in the other categories, next to their sunbaes, but garners the second-highest number of votes with 7 votes for ‘9 and Three Quarters (Run Away)‘. In third place, sweet-voiced vocal king Chen receives 6 votes for ‘Shall we?‘. ‘Amaranth’ and ‘Good Night’ are superior, anyway.
We’ve done the math, churned the numbers, and Super Junior sits comfortably at the top with 14.34 points. That means that the Chart has relegated AKMU to #2 with 11.30 points. Most impressively, Jang Beom June takes third place, up five notches from last month.
What is OH! Chart Again?
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: Super Junior – SUPER Clap
Following the return of every single member from conscription, Super Junior returns in full force for the first time! Well, almost, given the circumstances. Their lineup has seen plenty of changes, for sure, but some things don’t really change. Like the fact that Donghae still excels, face-wise, and the fact that Kyuhyun and Ryeowook can sing circles around most other idol vocalists. And that they clearly revel in the presence of the adjective in their group name.
