Widely recognized as a pivotal player in South Korea’s music streaming market, Melon platform is a barometer for musical trends and hits. The Melon TOP100 chart splits its ranking criteria evenly, drawing 50% of its data from the previous day’s streams and the rest from activity within the last hour. Traditionally, girl groups have been chart powerhouses, with multiple ensembles garnering a succession of #1 singles. However, these four Kpop boy groups have broken through this pattern, securing their place at the summit of the Melon TOP100 chart.
