SNSD’s mini-album ‘Hoot’, which was unleashed on October 27th, has been ranked #1 on Hanteo, Hot Tracks, and other various other music online charts for two weeks in a row now, showing hints of another phase of SNSD’s dominance.

In addition, their title track ‘Hoot’ nabbed the #1 rank on the daily charts of music sites Dosirak, Bugs, Soribada, Monkey3 for the first week of November, and is still going strong in its 2nd week in first place. If that’s not enough, SNSD’s ‘Hoot’ is even topping the charts of SKT’s daily chart for ring tones, showing exactly how much the nation is becoming addicted to the hit song.

SNSD also won a K-Chart on KBS 2TV Music Bank on November 5th, as well as a ‘Mutizen’ award onSBS ‘Inkigayo’ on the 7th. Many are suspecting ‘Hoot’ to follow the successful footsteps of the group’s previous tracks, ‘Gee‘ and ‘Oh!’.
