Data source 潇洒光-
*February 2018 is quite an empty month when it comes to new releases/strong contenders due to the winter olympics that's why digital index is lower compared to other months.
*As gaon charts from Sun-Sat, the 5 week index in reality reflects 35 days of charting for songs released on Sundays compared to 29 days of charting for songs released on Saturdays.
*disclaimer: soty winner may not be 100% accurate especially if final estimated 30 day index between #1 and #2 has a very small gap.

For those who are not familiar with gaon awards, they give a SOTY award to the top digital seller of each month, and this is based on the 30 day digital index.

Will update periodically so follow if you are interested smile.png

If you look here, Gaon actually awards a SOTY prize to the top song of each month: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaon_Chart_Music_Awards

Big bang's 1st week is crazy strong, and that'll definitely show this week as well.

 

As a mamamoo fan, i hope starry night can maintain that number one spot for the rest of the month.

march will go to big bang. gaon monthly awards aren't so much about longevity as they are about initial performance, and big bang already gave themselves a huge head start with week 1 numbers.

Maybe Mamamoo can get the March. Even if they don't, I feel like they'll have better longevity cause Starry Night is already closing in to Flower Road's ULs.

If you watch the charts, the gap between their UL is getting closer each day. They started off with >500k UL difference, now they are down to 50k UL difference. At certain time points, mamamoo has been starting to beat big bang on hourly charts like genie, naver, mnet, soribada despite being released by 1 week earlier. So IMO SOTY March can go either way smile.png

You can only win for the month your song is released on right? Otherwise iKON can take February too. They still have around 50m

 

I think BB will take March let's see tho

Yep they count 30 days from the date your song is released. You cannot win in a month your song isn't released in.

 

Yup I won't be surprised if BB takes march, they are the king of kpop~ Starry night's being such a beast tho.. I think their ending numbers may be quite close.

Bboom Bboom is ranked #9 at 88,182,751. It hit viral status late January I think.. So it isn't reflected in the first five weeks. Overall, they are up there tho.

Because the group was nugu so the song didn’t chart at first & the song didn’t go from 200s to top2 suddenly.

While Gaon SOTY only counts first 30 days data of 1 song. Bboom Bboom’s total yearly number will be good tho

Active promotion really do help in chart performance and longevity. At one point Love Scenario was 50k ULs behind Starry Night before the boost from Sketchbook. I wonder how long it can sustain it's longevity now it's been 2 months since the song release and they're done promoting.

I think this is especially so for performance-oriented groups like mamamoo who just captivate audience through their stage performances. They didn't even go on immortal songs this time round, if they had I think the boost would be even bigger. smile.png Starry night didn't go viral though, so props to mamamoo for their good performances shown smile.png I must say love scenario is pretty much a super hit song in korea, everyone is singing it, that would definitely mean it has long longevity.

Mamamoo is definitely one of the best performing groups in K-pop and the song sounds really good. Once the public hear it, it's no surprise they're doing good. I think this time many Koreans find Love Scenario relatable and catchy with a pretty melody. It's the type of song that you'll find yourself sing along at first listen and has great replay value.

Interestingly both mamamoo and iKON are always overlooked and underestimated by ifans. Both songs are bops, I've heard multiple people play the two songs in my own country even (oh yes + bboom bboom as well)

Congrats iKON and Roy Kim! March would be interesting who between BB or MMM would take it. 

 

EDIT:

 

Look at iKON on top of the list dominated by girl groups.
