Frozen fever is in full effect, and absolutely nobody is safe -- not even the K-pop world. The signature song from the Disney blockbuster, "Let It Go," performed by Idina Menzel, enters South Korea's official singles chart at No. 1 this week, while a second version of the song rises to No. 4. Additionally, the Demi Lovato version is also charting at No. 54.
Apparently, this is the first time in the history of the Gaon chart that a foreign, English-language song has topped the charts. The vast majority of all the music that charts in Korea is Korean, so it's rare for foreign songs to even crack the top 100, let alone reach No. 1, so this is a HUGE achievement for Frozen.
Last week's No. 1 single, Hyorin's "Hello," falls one spot to No. 2, while Ga-In's comeback track, "Fxxk U," enters at No. 3. This makes "Fxxk U" Ga-In's fifth top three single as a lead artist, further solidifying her status as one of K-pop's top female soloists.
Girl's Day's "Something" holds strong at No. 6, while Rain's sleeper hit, "La Song," rises one spot to No. 8. Both songs have shown a lot of longevity, which can also be said for AOA's "Miniskirt," which climbs one spot this week for a new peak of No. 11.
Sunny Hill's "Don't Say Anything" manages to rise ten spots to No. 24, but the increase isn't enough to save it from being the group's lowest-charting single since relaunching in 2011 with "Midnight Circus."
