Shinhwa Gets Most No. 1 Trophies for a Single Track with ′This Love′
Shinhwa marked a triple crown on Mnet′s M Countdown on June 6, as it refused to let go of the top spot on M Countdown′s music charts for three weeks in a row.
With this triple crown win, This Love has become the song to give Shinhwa the most no. 1 trophies in its career.
Shinhwa won the triple crown on June 6 following previous no. 1 wins on May 23 and May 30 on the show. This is the group′s first triple crown in 10 years since its Brand New days.
The win was also meaningful as it marked the group′s eighth consecutive win with This Love. This number breaks the previous record for most no. 1 wins, held by Yo! from Shinhwa′s second album. Yo! gave Shinhwa seven no. 1 trophies in 1999.
A rep from Shinhwa Company told enews on June 7, "The members and staff are all happy to hear about the triple crown and the record-breaking number of wins just before leaving for Shinhwa′s Asia tour. We want to sincerely thank fans for their interest in This Love. We′ll all continue to work hard to show off more colorful performances and new images in the future."
Shinhwa will be leaving for Hong Kong on June 7 for the first concert of its Asia tour to be held on June 8.
