Six-member girl group T-ara continued to reign Gaon's singles chart for the second time last week with their song "I Go Crazy Because of You."

The single is from their repackaged album "Breaking Heart" which was released in late February. The record also contains "I'm Really Hurt," the second song the girls started promoting on Monday with the release of a music video.

Kara's "Lupin" maintained its position in second place and newly released song "Bubble Love" by MC Mong and Seo In-young climbed four spots to rank in third place.

Meanwhile, hip hop group Epik High stormed to No. 1 on the weekly album chart with their new record "epilogue" released last Tuesday.

Rounding off the top three were T-ara's latest album and girl group 2NE1's first mini-album "I Don't Care," 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.
