Korean idol groups have dominated German music channel Viva TV’s hot music chart for two weeks in a row.
SHINee’s Hello and TVXQ’s Why were placed 1st and 2nd on the 30th Weekly VIVA Clip Chart published on 28 July. 2NE1’s I Am the Best was 8th, and SNSD’s Hoot 10th, to be followed by B2st’s Fiction (19th), Big Bang’s Tonight (40th), 2PM’s Hands Up (46th), and B2st Breath (90th).
Viva TV is as influential in Germany as MTV in the U.S. The Clip Chart ranks most-watched music videos based on the viewer counts and online mp3 download counts for the past week.
