Korea K-Pop Hot 100

The Korea K-Pop Hot 100 was a music singles chart in the United States and South Korea. It was launched in conjunction with Billboard and Billboard Korea on August 25, 2011, and was based on digital sales via leading websites as well as downloads from mobile service sites using an industry-standard formula and the most credible music data sources within South Korea.[1] It was the second Asian Billboard chart after the Japan Hot 100.[2]

Silvio Pietroluongo, Billboard's Director of Charts said that "the launch of the Billboard K-Pop Hot 100 chart is a milestone event, as it will provide the Korean music market with what we believe is Korea's most accurate and relevant song ranking." He also added that they are "excited to be expanding Billboard's globally recognized Hot 100 chart franchise into this country, and look forward to enhancing the K-Pop Hot 100 chart in the near future with additional data as well as creating new charts that showcase the breadth of Korean music."[1]

The first number-one song on the chart was "So Cool" by Sistar on the issue dated September 3, 2011.[1]

The chart stopped being published in the United States by Billboard beginning with the issue dated May 17, 2014.[3] The Korean version of the chart was discontinued beginning with the July 16, 2014 issue date.[4]
