4Minute jumped into the number one position on Billboard Magazine's K-Pop Hot 100 chart this week, with their in-your-face single "What's Your Name."

After climbing to number two last week, 4Minute's "What's Your Name" ended "Superstar K4" winner Roy Kim's three-week run in the top spot on the Billboard K-pop chart.

South Korean R&B group VIBE debuts in the number three slot last week, with their sensitive ballad "As I'm Getting Older."

Vibe is currently dominating the charts with two other songs in the K-pop top 20.

Their single "For The Last Time" is at number 13 in its third week and "Don't Listen To This Song If You're Under 19" featuring MIIII debuted at number 15.

VIBE's fifth album "Organic Sound" was released on May 15.

For the first time since its debut on the Billboard K-Pop Hot 100 chart six weeks ago, Psy saw his new single "Gentleman" fall out of the top 10.

The rapper's record-breaking follow up to "Gangnam Style" dropped to number 12 this week.

Yet for Lee Hyori, things on the Billboard Magazine's K-pop chart keep getting better.

Her song "Miss Korea" remains at number 3 in its third week on the charts and possibly boosted by its action-packed music video, Lee's single "Bad Girls" breaks into the charts at number 25.

Entitled "Monochrome," the fifth Lee Hyori album debuted on Tuesday.

After a five-year hiatus K-pop's longest running idol group SHINHWA is back in the top 10 with their new single "This Love," which debuted at number five.

SHINHWA's album "THE CLASSIC," was also released on Tuesday, garnering major record sales in Japan and South Korea.

"THE CLASSIC" is currently ranked number one on the Hanteo and Japan Tower Records charts.

"[SHINHWA] have shown their popularity and power of being an idol group for 15 years," a representative for the band's record label said on Thursday.

"All their hard work and efforts throughout these years have allowed them to continue to rank high."
