The CIRCLE chart ( previously known as the Gaon Music Chart or the Gaon Chart) released its monthly chart for February.
The Korea Music Content Association, which operates the CIRCLE chart, said, “New Jeans’ ‘OMG’ topped the global K-pop chart in February 2023 and Ditto topped the digital and streaming charts.
NewJeans’ first single “OMG,” with the title track of the same name, reached No. 1 on the Global K-Pop Chart, which aggregates K-Pop usage worldwide. In addition, their previously released song “Ditto” held the top spot in two categories for two consecutive months, proving their unstoppable popularity.
NCT 127 ranked No. 1 on the download and BGM charts with “Ay-Yo,” the title track from the repackaged version of their 4th full-length album. The song is a hip-hop dance song that blends a strong drum line with the members’ wildly appealing vocals.
