[Weekly Chart] 3rd Week of January 2021

Another week has passed. Before we progress to the next week’s worth of reviews (which will feature Golden Child, Bobby, Dream Catcher, IU and Hyuna to name a few), I will put my mindset into a bit of a reflective mode by writing up another Weekly KPOP Chart post. This particular post is for the 3rd Week of January 2021, as you can tell from the title of the post.

New releases of the week

If you have been tuning into my blog during the week, you would have seen my reviews for the new releases made by AB6IX, ONEUS, Cherry Bullet and CRAVITY. But this is only a small portion of releases from the past week, which also includes Epik High, U-Know Yunho (TVXQ), Berry Good, Chungha, PinkFantasy and SATURDAY. I will try my best to catch up on these reviews (and also the ones that remained from the previous few weeks).

Non-KPOP release by a Korean artist’ of the week

If I am correct, this is the first new ‘Non-KPOP release by a Korean artist’ song to be featured in this segment. For those who may have missed it, Baekhyun made his solo debut in Japan with Get You Alone. The music video for this release dropped a few weeks back. But the song officially dropped with the mini-album, BAEKHYUN, this week. This new song will be featured on the upcoming International Song Review post (which has now been scheduled in two weeks time).

Throwback corner *new segment*

The throwback corner will be the section of the post where I show you what else I have been listening to. This will only feature KPOP releases that dropped pre-2021 (or the year we are in). Looking back at my YouTube history, it seems like GFriend’s MAGO is the first song to be featured in this segment. And I am sure you probably know why! Catchy, retro and fun. Must I say any more?

The Chart

And here is the goods! The main reason to why we are all here. Congratulations to Cherry Bullet’s Love So Sweet for debuting at the top of the charts this week. It is such a unique song that definitely got my attention when it was released during the week. For more of the charts, continue scrolling below!
