Oh My Girl's "Dolphin" has officially beaten "Nonstop" as the longest-running girl group song on MelOn in history as the track continues to rank on the Top 100 chart.
On Sept. 17, WM Entertainment announced that a new Oh My Girl song holds the record for the longest period to chart on MelOn Top 100.
Oh My Girl Dolphin Is Now the Longest-Running Girl Group Song on MelOn Top 100 in History
"Dolphin" is part of Oh My Girl's 2020 album "Nonstop," along with the title song that is also named "Nonstop." These two songs received equal attention from music fans in South Korea.
Since the "Nonstop" album was released in April of last year, both "Nonstop" and "Dolphin" debuted on MelOn, the largest streaming platform in South Korea. The two tracks have stayed strong on the chart for more than one year.
On the Sept. 16 update of MelOn Top 100 chart, Oh My Girl's "Dolphin" ranked No. 65, while "Nonstop" placed No. 104.
Since "Dolphin" consistently ranked inside the Top 100 while "Nonstop" charted outside the Top 100, the two songs tied in the record for the longest-running girl group song on MelOn, both spending 501 days.
On Sept. 17, Oh My Girl's "Dolphin" once again stayed inside the Top 100, claiming the No. 69 spot. "Nonstop," on the contrary, remained outside of the Top 100, climbing down to No. 107.
As a result, "Dolphin" now officially owns the title of the longest-running girl group song in MelOn history as it has recorded 502 days on the chart.
The fact that "Dolphin" is just one of the B-side songs from Oh My Girl's seventh mini-album "Nonstop" makes the milestone more notable.
