SG Wannabe, Big Bang, Davichi, and 2NE1 have the most digital hit songs over the past decade

It has been ten years since the digital music market began making its mark in Korea! Although the digital market overtook the physical market in 2003, most people took to P2P (peer-to-peer) and streaming due to copyright issues. However, with the release of Se7en"s digital single "Crazy" in December 1, 2004, the first online music download sales began, helped by the launching of MelOn in November and Soribada in July of the same year . In 2006, Korea became the first major music market in the world to become more than 50% digital!

The TOP 100 yearly charts that MelOn created based on the number of monthly downloads and streaming counts from 2004 to December 2013 were all looked over in order to discover which artists had the most hit songs over the past decade in the digital world. There were a total of 976 songs!

>It has been 10 years since Korea moved into the digital music marketplace everyone uses today! Congratulations to the artists who graced the annual Top 100 digital charts for the last ten years and look forward to even more hit songs that will take K-Pop by storm in the next exciting digital decade
