Hello to another chart analysis that hopefully won’t be moved.
I took a couple of hours today to analyze the Gaon Year-End charts from 2010 to 2020 to see which hits had longevity.
99 songs have charted on 2 year-end charts
5 songs have charted on 3 year-end charts
2 songs have charted on 4 year-end charts
All songs are listed below. I also included a couple of songs that charted on only 1 year-end chart, but did exceptionally well and deserve to be included.
Please keep in mind that I’m only analyzing one platform: Gaon, which is an aggregate of 5 Korean streaming services (Melon, FLO, Genie, Bugs, and VIBE). YouTube, Spotify, and any other international services are not counted here.
Score breakdown is as follows:
#1 on YE chart = 100, #2=99, #3=98, etc.
Every 2.5M downloads = 100 points (downloads weigh more on Gaon, and they are an older metric there since Dec. 2009)
Every 100M streams = 50 points (more recent metric introduced in 2015)
