Davichi remain unstoppable on this week's Gaon digital chart as their latest single Cry Again climbs to No. 1.
This gives the vocal duo their eighth No. 1 single since the Gaon chart started in 2009. It's also their first chart-topper since 2013's The Letter; none of their singles in 2014 reached the top, which may have factored into their decision to leave longtime record label Core Contents Media last year.
Further down, Nine Muses' new single Drama soars to No. 13, giving the group their highest-charting single to date. The sassy Drama beats the group's previous peak of No. 16 for Gun, and No. 17 for Dolls.
A few spots lower, 4minute's pre-release ballad Cold Rain debuts at No. 15. It's not a great position by 4minute's standards, but their official single Crazy drops next week so you can expect that to chart much higher.
Last and sadly least, Lizzy jumps 50 spots to No. 38 with her first solo single Not An Easy Girl. While it's good to see her enter the top forty, the song is essentially a flop compared to the high chart positions her two girl groups After School and Orange Caramel usually reach.
Check out this week's key K-pop hits below.
No. 1. Davichi - Cry Again
No. 2. INFINITE H - Pretty
No. 13. Nine Muses - Drama
No. 15. 4minute - Cold Rain
No. 38. Lizzy - Not An Easy Girl
The Trump-Twitter Industrial Complex continues to fester and mutate.
This week, President Donald J. Trump tweeted a false statement about mail-in ballots.
He wrote that secretaries of state were sending mail-in ballots to every person, when actually states are only sending out ballot applications. For the first time, Twitter jumped in to fact-check Trump's statement, adding a link to a webpage full of information about mail-in ballots.

After debuting at No. 1 last week with "Empty," YG Entertainment's new boy band WINNER have been dethroned by Jang Bum Joon. The former Busker Busker guitarist and vocalist slides in at No. 1 with "Difficult Woman," pushing WINNER to second place.
Veteran girl group KARA, who recently lost two members and gained a new one, arrive at No. 17 with their new single "Mamma Mia." This is weak compared to the group's usual chart ranking, but when you take into consideration that they just reshuffled their lineup, as well as the fact that "Mamma Mia" seems to be holding up on the various real-time digital charts, a top twenty debut really isn't too shabby at all.
A few spots lower is Orange Caramel's "My Copycat," which enters at No. 22. This is the trio's lowest-charting single ever, but lately the K-pop charts have been more about longevity than one-week peaks, so we'll see how this does in the long run.
Speaking of girl groups with low charting singles, SECRET's "I'm In Love" plummets to No. 29 after debuting at No. 14 last week, while poor Sunny Hill just flopped beyond belief with "Monday Blues" at No. 96.
However, even Sunny Hill can't match STELLAR in flopping, with the controversial girl group's new single "Mask" missing the top 100 altogether. STELLAR were never big on the charts to begin with, but they did score a surprise top forty hit earlier this year with the amazing "Marionette," so it's sad to see that the equally-as-good "Mask" has failed to continue their winning streak.

No. 1. Jang Bum Joon - Difficult Woman
No. 5. Taemin - Danger
No. 17. KARA - Mamma Mia
No. 22. Orange Caramel - My Copycat
