Girl group Sistar’s song “So Cool” topped the first Billboard K-pop Hot 100 Chart, which opened last week, Billboard said.

The U.S. weekly magazine, particularly famous for music charts, launched the Billboard K-pop Hot 100 Chart on Aug. 25, ranking digital sales of the country’s top songs and mobile downloads.

The second place went to Leesang’s “I Turned off TV,” followed by 2NE1’s “Ugly.”

The chart was modeled after Billboard’s U.S.-based Hot 100 and other Asian charts. The Billboard K-pop Hot 100 is supported by the Korean Entertainment Producers Association, which represents Korea’s top music labels, the magazine said.

The chart is shown on Billboard’s international chart section at www.billboard.com, www.billboard.biz, and Billboard Korea’s website at www.billboard.co.kr.

Sistar is a four-member girl group which debuted in 2010 with the song “Push Push.”
