Taking a look at the Gaon Top 100 Chart for the first half of 2012, Busker Busker and G-Dragon have held first and second place, respectively.
There was also a generation gap between the hitmakers. Top producers such as Yoon Il Sang and Kim Do Hoon were on the list along with Busker Busker's Jang Bum Joon and Big Bang G-Dragon.
Busker Busker, who first appeared on the show "Super Star K," has been ranking high with his songs that he wrote. His first album that released in March were all songs he had written himself.
G-Dragon's songs such as "Blue", "Monster" and others have ranked high as well.
Other producers such as JYP, Kim Do Hoon and last year's first place hit maker, Jo Young Soo were all on the chart.
The hit maker's specific profits were not revealed. There were also many other producers that did not make it onto the top 10 such as Teddy, who wrote 2NE1's new song, E-Tribe and other foreign producers.
