Sorry about the delay. I know I promised this yesterday but I was swamped by work so I’m just posting this now. But as they say, better late than never.
Anyway, there has been some serious movement in the charts this week. For K-Pop fans, most noticeable is how Bonamana by Super Junior falls 2 spots further to land at #5. Like I always say about most K-Pop albums that top the chart, this drop doesn’t mean that the group is in trouble in terms of sales.
In the case of Super Junior, it is actually a testament to their local popularity. This is considering how the album has not just been on the charts for a couple of weeks now but is also just the third repackaged version of the original album.
But what I really find interesting is the fact that XLR8 is also on the charts this week with Super Junior. Online K-Pop fans have previously claimed that “You’re So Hot” by XLR8 is a plagiarized version of “Sorry, Sorry” by Super Junior. Hmmm…now that’s something I find really funny. Or not.
With that, here is the complete chart.
