Taeyang rises to No. 1 in charts



Tae-yang of K-pop’s most successful boy band Big Bang topped the music chart for the sixth time yesterday on SBS weekly music show “Popular Song.”

“Popular Song,” better known as “Inkigayo” to local fans, evaluates the album sales, online music sales and mobile voting to award the No. 1 prize every week. After topping the chart of cable channel Mnet’s “M. Countdown” on Thursday, the 26-year-old singer continued to win more support from the SBS show.

Yesterday, two tracks - “Eyes, Nose, Lips” and “1 a.m.”- from his newly released studio album “Rise” were nominated for the best song prize. Another competitor was six-member boy band Beast, who recently came back with a new EP “Good Luck.”

“Thank you all, I’d like to thank all my fans, and my producers who have helped me; without you guys, I wouldn’t have been able to make it this far. Last but not least, I thank you YG!” said Tae-yang, attributing his triumph to his chief producer Yang Hyun-suk.
