Queen IU has officially won her first Triple Crown of 2019!
“Blueming“ has been announced as the No. 1 song for the third week in a row on the December 15 episode of SBS’ Inkigayo with 7,040 points, marking IU’s 59th win and seventh music show trophy this year (for “Love Poem” and “Blueming” combined).
This is the fifth Triple Crown of IU’s career, tying her with legends TVXQ and Girls’ Generation, who also got three consecutive wins on Inkigayo for five of their songs.
Let’s not forget that IU has already achieved two perfect all-kills (PAKs) on the digital charts in 2019. She truly is Korea’s sweetheart.
On the December 8 episode of SBS’ Inkigayo, the still absent IU has won her second trophy for “Blueming” and marked her sixth overall win this comeback season with 6,521 points.
Despite being up against EXO and MAMAMOO, IU once again proved why she is considered one of Korea’s top digimons (“digital monsters”, i.e. artists who dominate on the digital charts). She now has 58 music show trophies to her name, which is more than any other female soloist in Korea.
Congratulations to IU and Uaena!
