After four long years, Girl's Day have finally scored their first No. 1 single on the Gaon chart. Their adorable new single, "Darling," just debuted at the top, pushing aside last week's winner, Eunji and Huh Gak's "Break Up To Make Up," down to No. 4.
It's hard to believe that Girl's Day are now only topping the singles chart considering their current popularity. They previously peaked at No. 5 with "Twinkle Twinkle" in 2011 and then again with last year's "Female President," while January's "Something" narrowly missed the pole position at No. 2.
Block B's new pre-release single "Jackpot" debuts at No. 10, which is quite impressive considering that the song has been floating around online for months now. It was originally due for release in April, and even had its official music video released at the time, but was postponed at the last minute due to the Sewol ferry disaster. It was just last week that it officially went on sale as a warm up for the band's new album, HER.
Taking a huge tumble this week is f(x), whose edgy new single "Red Light" plunges from No. 2 to No. 12. It's already doing poorly on real-time digital charts compared to their past releases, while the group's promotional schedule was just wiped clean after the mysterious disappearance of member Sulli, who is supposedly too ill to perform.
Meanwhile, rookie girl group MAMAMOO show some serious staying power with "Mr. Ambiguous," which rises one spot to No. 24.
Last but not least is T-ara's sexy goddess Hyomin, who falls to No. 40 with "Nice Body" after just three weeks. At this point, the song is performing a little worse than Jiyeon's "1min1sec" did.

It's been a long hard road for B.A.P, but the talented boy band has finally earned some much-deserved recognition this week with their first ever top ten single on Korea's official Gaon chart.
Their latest tune, "1004 (Angel)," enters at No. 9 this week, beating their previous career best of No. 15 for "Rain Sound." Considering that "1004 (Angel)" has B.A.P adopting a more radio-friendly sound compared to their previous hip-hop, rock, and experimental singles, it's no big shock to see that this is the one to become their first top ten. Additionally, the boys also won their first music program award last night on Show Champion, further adding to their already successful comeback.
Ga-In's "Fxxk U" slips from 3-6 this week, while her other comeback track, "Truth or Dare," makes its debut at No. 8 -- giving the Brown Eyed Girls' songstress two top ten singles at once.
Down at the lower end of the chart, GP Basic's new single "Pika Burnjuck" arrives No. 183.
