Hit dance unit Trouble Maker took the top place on MelOn’s weekly singles chart with their new release rolled out almost two years after their debut.

The coed duo’s addictive title tune “Now” scooped up the first place on the chart during the week of October 28 and November 3, the chart showed on Monday.

Formed of CUBE Entertainment’s lablemates HyunA of 4minute and Jang Hyun Seung of BEAST, Trouble Maker succeeded to prove their chemistry by sweeping music charts after their sensational self-titled debut tune dropped in December of 2011.

Korean songstress Park Ji-yoon took one step up to No. 2 with her retro-styled hit tune “Mr. Lee,” while last week’s No. 1 tune “You Don’t Know Love” by K. Will slid down to number three.

Two songs much-beloved on local music charts for last several weeks, namely IU’s “The Red Shoes” and Busker Busker’s “Love, At First,” also dropped to No. 4 and No. 5, respectively.

Other popular tunes in the top ten were Lim Chang-jung’s authentic ballad “A Guy Like Me,” SISTAR Soyou and Mad Clown’s collaboration “Stupid in Love,” G-Dragon’s “Crooked,” Brown Eyed Soul’s new single “Always Be There” and “I Got C,” new collaboration between hip-hop producer Primary and comedian Park Myung-soo rolled out only two days ago.

Two other tunes also produced for the special song festival of MBC’s popular variety show “Infinite Challenge,” namely “Going To Try” by G-Dragon and Jung Hyung-don and “Please Don’t Go” by Yoo Hee-yeol and Yoo Jae-seok, landed in the top twenty.

The utterly successful album, entitled “’Infinite Challenge’ Free Road Song Festival,” also nabbed the top seed on the weekly album chart last week, edging out Busker Busker’s second album and IU’s third studio album “Modern Times” to No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.
