Their other songs, ‘Girlfriend’ and ‘R.E.A.L.’ are on the eighth and ninth spot, respectively.

A spokesperson from Gaon Charts explained, "It usually takes about 400,000 downloads for a song to reach number one. But Big Bang's newest songs surpassed that easily. Just last week there wasn’t a single song that exceeded 300,000 downloads, but their new songs blew it out of the water."
