OH MY GIRL's ‘Nonstop’ becomes longest-charting girl group song on MelOn, fans happy for record
OH MY GIRL is one of the leading third-gen girl groups despite coming from a small company. They have several iconic hits like ‘Dun Dun Dance’ and ‘Dolphin’ which is actually a b-sidetrack. Additionally, ‘Dolphin’ and ‘Nonstop’ are their first platinum songs. They’ve also topped charts with their Japanese releases like ‘Oh My Girl Japan Debut Album’. They were also the runner-ups in the Mnet survival show ‘Queendom’ which is ‘Kingdom’s’ original version.
With back-to-back successful summer releases, the group was dubbed as ‘Summer Queens’. They released their eighth EP ‘Nonstop’ with the lead single of the same name in 2020. It peaked at #3 on Gaon Album Chart. The title track ‘Nonstop’ came at #2 on Gaon and got them eight music show wins while ‘Dolphin’ went viral on TikTok. The album was also at #2 on iTunes Worldwide Album Chart, topped iTunes K-Pop Album Chart in 21 regions and topped Album Chart in 9 countries. And it is still breaking records on MelOn.

'Nonstop' on MelOn non-stop
When it was first released, ‘Nonstop’ peaked at #1 on MelOn. It was also the longest girl group song to stay at #1 on the chart with more than 41 hours. MelOn is one of the biggest music charts in South Korea and is difficult to enter. And not only did OH MY GIRL top it on their chart debut, but they are still on the chart a year later. The song ‘Nonstop’ was on MelOn Top 100 chart for 479 days straight. They were tied with TWICE’s ‘Cheer Up’. But as of today, on August 20, ‘Nonstop’ is still on the chart for the 480th day making it the longest-charting girl group song on MelOn.
We also have their latest single ‘Dun Dun Dance’ at #16, ‘Dolphin’ at #54 and ‘Nonstop’ at #94 currently on the chart. ‘Dolphin’ is also the longest-charting b-sidetrack by a K-pop act to spend more than 400 days on the chart and is currently on the chart for the 474th day. It is also the third-longest girl group song to stay on the chart. Additionally, ‘Nonstop’s’ music video has 72.5k million views and 951k likes on YouTube. Fans are happy that the girls are finally getting the domestic recognition they deserve.
Most songs covered by participants in talent shows and survival shows happen to be by popular artists. And now fans are excited that OH MY GIRL is considered in that league with their song ‘The Fifth Season (SSFWL)’ being a part of the first mission on ‘Girls Planet 999’. Along with that, the girls are also participating in the iconic musical variety show, ‘Yoo Heeyeol’s Sketchbook’ which will be aired on KBS2’s channel on August 20 at 11:20 pm KST (10:20 am ET). The girls also came in at #7 for the brand reputation for female K-pop groups in August.
