Ailee's recent nude photo scandal clearly hasn't hurt the 24-year-old's career, with her new single, "Singing Got Better," debuting at No. 1 on this weeks Gaon chart. It's her third chart-topper following last year's "U&I" and "Shower of Tears" with Baechigi.
However, "Singing Got Better" was actually this close to being pipped at the post by Girl's Day's "Something," which jumps four spots to No. 2. The points difference between the two songs was incredibly small, but in the end Ailee won out -- barely. Girl's Day won't be too upset, though, because "Something" is now their highest-charting single yet. Their previous best was "Twinkle Twinkle" and "Female President," both of which peaked at No. 5.
In more good news, K-pop kings TVXQ just scored their biggest hit in years with their new single, "Something." The jazzy throwback debuts at No. 4, making it the group's highest-charting song since relaunching as a duo back in early 2011.
Rain receives a second-week boost with his double comeback tracks, "La Song" and "30 Sexy," which rocket up to No. 10 and No. 12, respectively. They're still low positions by Rain's standards, but at least this is good enough to say that he didn't totally flop.
Further down, Dal Shabet debuts at No. 16 with "B.B.B. (Big Baby Baby)" -- two spots lower than what their last single, "Be Ambitious," reached. The girls have been trapped in the top twenty since they debuted back in 2011, unable to find that one special song and concept that will take them to the next level.
