Korean boy group Super Junior have proved their pan-Asian appeal by topping a music chart in Taiwan for 34 consecutive weeks.
"Bonamana," the title track of the band's fourth album, ranked No. 1 on the weekly Top 100 K-Pop Chart by Taiwan's largest online music site KKBOX on Sunday based on sales between Jan. 16 to 22, maintaining the top spot since June 6, 2010.
The chart previously was called the Korea-Japan Top 100, but the retailer decided to maintain separate Korean and Japanese charts at the start of this year due to the explosive popularity of Korean bands such as Super Junior and Girls' Generation.
"Bonamana" also dominated the monthly sales chart from June to December last year, as well as the yearly chart for 2010 and shows no sign of fading from popularity so far.
The band had already achieved an impressive feat with the title track of their third album "Sorry Sorry" staying at No. 1 for 36 weeks on the Korea-Japan Top 100 Chart.
