Sistar Top Inaugural ‘Billboard’ K-Pop Hot 100 Chart With “So Cool”

By: Robbie Daw / August 25, 2011

Even though Sistar missed out on making our Rise Of K-Pop: 10 Must-Hear Bands feature last week, the South Korean quartet can dry their tears and rest easy knowing they’re currently #1 on the very first K-Pop Hot 100, which Billboard launched today. The chart was launched in conjunction with Billboard Korea, the publication noted, and is 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 Korea.”

In other words, so cool! Sistar consists of Hyorin, Bora, Soyu & Dasom, and their #1 single on the new chart also serves as the bouncy, dance-pop title track to their first full-length album. The video itself has garnered over 2.1 million views in the past two weeks.

So here — have a watch and up your own cool factor a notch.
