Welcome to the first edition of our weekly K-pop Chart, bringing you the Top 40 songs and albums, in the UK.

The chart is based on real numbers and solid facts, using a simple combination of complex formulae to find out the best of the best in the UK for K-Pop. Similar to the Korean charts, the UK K-Pop Chart uses sales numbers, votes from the fans and broadcast exposure, to calculate automatically without bias, the Top 40 K-Pop singles and albums in the UK.

This weeks chart does not include votes, however over the next few days we will be releasing polls to help determine next weeks charts!

So without further ado, the first UKP K-pop Top 40 albums…

Some fan favourites were obviously expected, but we were also surprised by the low sales numbers of some of the big headline groups who recently made a comeback… which meant that some of them didn’t even make the Top 40!

And proving that we Brits are a little different from the Koreans and Americans, we really do love the classic K-Pop, with some great tracks still making up the Top 40 best selling music in K-Pop in the UK months after their first release!

 

What do you think about the rankings?
Did you buy any of the new releases this week?
Why do you think the sales numbers for new releases in the UK are so low?
