K-pop idols T-ara topped the official Gaon weekly singles chart with their song "I Go Crazy Because of You" for the week of March 1 to 7.

The title track, from their repackaged album, climbed a spot to become the No. 1 single for the first week of March.

The group released their repackaged record late February that features 16 electronic dance pop songs. Their title track "Crazy" was co-produced by famed Korean singer Wheesung.

Last week's winner Kara fell back a slot with their song "Lupin" and Beast entered the chart with their new single "Shock."

Meanwhile, the second mini-album "Shock of the New Era" by six-member boy band Beast entered the album charts in first place to become the best-selling record of the week.

Rounding off the top three were the latest record from T-ara "Breaking Heart" and new album "Voice of Soul Best Collection" from V.O.S, respectively.

The Gaon music chart, considered the Korean equivalent of the U.S. Billboard chart, was launched last month. Its data has been accumulated from online and offline sales statistics from the country's major web-based providers and record distribution companies.
