Big Bang shows 'Monster' power on Gaon charts [NEWS]


Top K-pop icon Big Bang is opening up the next chapter of their career for sure, with the special edition of the fifth mini-album "ALIVE."

A total of five songs out of nine songs listed in Big Bang's "STILL ALIVE" dominated the top 10 of Gaon's singles chart between June 3 and 9, including the title track "MONSTER" that perched atop the list.


Making a bigger bang with the album that dropped on June 3, "STILL ALIVE" sat at No. 3, "EGO" at No. 4, "FEELING" at No. 5 and "BINGLE BINGLE" at No. 6, the chart showed on Thursday.

The special edition is composed of four tracks from the original and five new tracks written and composed by the leader G-Dragon and producer Teddy--"MONSTER," "STILL ALIVE," "FEELING", "EGO" and "BINGLE BINGLE."

Solidifying its position as the leading K-pop boy band, Big Bang also saw "STILL ALIVE" debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard's World Albums chart last week.

Sandwiched between the chart-topping song "Monster" and No.3 tune " STILL ALIVE" is Wonder Girls' new song "Like This."

"Like This," off the singers' sophomore mini-album "Wonder Party," also quickly entered the chart at No. 2 after being dropped on June 3.

Other songs in the top ten include comedian Chung Hyung-don and hip-hop artist Defconn's "The Gloomy Song," Wonder Girls' "Girlfriend" and G.NA's "2HOT."

Over on the album chart, Big Bang's "STILL ALIVE" made a triumphant No. 1 debut, pushing down the former winner B1A4's special edition for "IGNITION" down to No. 10.

Following the big winner of last week, Teen Top's third mini-album "aRtisT" and Wonder Girls' "Wonder Party " each entered the chart at No. 2 and No. 3 during the same period.
