The soundtrack for the South Korean drama "Master's Sun" continues to dominate the Billboard K-Pop Hot 100, as Yoon Mi Rae's "Touch Love" debuts at number one.

Yoon (who is also known as T) knocks SISTAR singer Hyorin's "Crazy of You," also from the "Master's Sun" soundtrack, into the number two spot.

The "Touch Love" singer, who is a member of the hip hop group MFBTY, earned major praise for her new hit from Billboard Magazine on Thursday.

"With the piano ballad anchored around an earworm of a hook, expect this one to float around the K-Pop Hot 100 for awhile," wrote Billboard's Jeff Benjamin and Jessica Oak.

Dropping down one place to number three is former Wonder Girls singer Sunmi, with her electro-infused hit "24 Hours" in the number three slot on the Billboard K-pop chart.

Although representatives for S.M. Entertainment, the record label of 12-piece boy band EXO, claims the group will be wrapping up their promotional activities for their hit "Growl" later this week, the song is still experiencing considerable chart success.

After five weeks on the Billboard chart, "Growl" is at number four.

Coming in at number five, is the girl group Crayon Pop, who took the K-pop world by storm with their viral video "Bar Bar Bar"

The video has received over 4.5 million views, and inspired dozens of parodies and video tributes.

Yet the Crayon Pop's members have found themselves at the heart of several controversies in recent weeks, including accusations they stole their trademark look from another group, were affiliated with the controversial political website Ilbo and that an online account set up for individual band members was a scam.

Big Bang frontman G-Dragon might not have cracked the top five with the songs from his two albums "Coup d'Etat" part one and part two, but the rapper currently has five songs in the Billboard K-pop top 40.

"Who You?" is number 16 on the Billboard chart, "Black" featuring Jennie Kim is at number 18, "Coup d'Etat" featuring hip hop heavyweight Diplo and "Harlem Shake" mastermind Baauer is in the number 20 spot, "R.O.D" featuring Lydia Paek is at number 22 and what could be the K-pop collaboration of the year "Niliria" featuring Missy Elliott is at number 30.
