NCT 127 Achieves Triple Crown On Gaon Weekly Charts; IU + BTS’ Suga Maintain Double Crown

NCT 127 and IU have swept the latest Gaon weekly charts!

On May 28, Gaon Chart announced that NCT 127 had officially earned a triple crown for the week of May 17 to May 23 after topping three separate charts.

The group’s new repackaged album “Neo Zone: The Final Round” debuted at No. 1 on this week’s physical album chart, while their new title track “Punch” claimed No. 1 on both the digital download chart and the BGM chart (which tracks the songs that people purchase to use as background music for their blogs and KakaoTalk profiles).

Meanwhile, IU’s “eight,” which was both produced by Suga and features him as an artist, successfully held onto its double crown from last week. The song topped both the overall digital chart and the streaming chart for the second week in a row.

Finally, BTS continued their reign over Gaon’s Social Chart 2.0 for the 22nd consecutive week.

Congratulations to all of the artists!
