Korean songstress Lee Hyori [Mnet Entertainment]
Korean pop sensation Lee Hyori proved to be an unstoppable force, making a banging debut on top of Gaon's singles chart for the week of April 11 to 17 with her new single "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang".
Lee successfully claimed the title of most popular single for the third week of April, pushing back her previous chart topper "Swing" off the No. 1 spot.
The songstress, who returned to the music stage last Thursday on televised music program "Mnet Countdown", has been conquering numerous online and offline charts with several tracks from her fourth album "H.Logic" since its release on April 12.
The recent tune " Magic " by four-member girl group Secret broke into the top three singles post at No. 2, followed by "My Heart is Heavy" by trio SeeYa which climbed three slots from last week.
Rounding out the top-selling albums was the special edition second mini-album "Honey" by K-pop female idols Kara which made a significant 50-spot jump to second place, followed sequentially by their first album "Blooming" which ranked in third.
The Gaon music chart, considered the Korean equivalent of the U.S. Billboard chart, was launched last month. Its data has been accumulated from online and offline sales statistics from the country's major web-based providers and record distribution companies.
