The Melon Weekly Chart is a key barometer of an idol group's popularity in K-pop.
Numerous idol groups have ascended to prominence throughout the years, garnering substantial acclaim and fanfare. These artists have attained the prestigious number-one position on Melon's influential music chart, reflecting their widespread appeal and success.
Nonetheless, a distinguished minority of these groups have accomplished the exceptional achievement of repeatedly securing the top spot on Melon's weekly chart with multiple tracks, showcasing their enduring popularity and impact in the music industry.
A netizen has compiled a list of songs that have attained the No. 1 position on the weekly chart. Leading the chart, Big Bang has an impressive record of 50 weeks at number 1. They are closely followed by Wonder Girls, who hold the second spot with 29 weeks, and in the third position, 2NE1 and NewJeans are tied at 23 weeks each. Remarkably, NewJeans stands out as the only non-second-generation artist in the top three, achieving this feat just one year after their debut. The detailed chart can be viewed below.
Netizens were fascinated by the list and joined the online community to share their thoughts. They commented, "Wow, Big Bang was on another level," "I think Big Bang had outstanding songs," "NewJeans is really impressive, with just three songs," "EXO never got number 1?" "It's just that BLACKPINK didn't make frequent comebacks but Big Bang and BLACKPINK are really impressive," and "I guess it's better to have various songs rank 1 rather than just a few songs rank for a long time."
