After taking a break yesterday after that intensive weekend, I am back. Due to my focus on the rookie groups over the weekend, I was unable to post my Weekly KPOP Chart post, which I will now do before I progress with any further reviews. This Weekly KPOP Chart post is for the 1st Week of July 2021! The first week of the final half of the year. How crazy fast has the year gone. I think if we blink again, it will be December! But let’s slow down. Don’t blink before you read the Weekly KPOP Charts for the 1st Week of July 2021!
New releases from the past week
In addition to the releases from SF9 (Tear Drop), Even Of Day (Right Through Me) and Taeyeon (Weekend) that I did review last week, there was also releases from BXK, Kim Soyeon of (G)I-DLE, GIRLKIND, Yebin of DIA, Oh Sae Beom, Hyolyn, Kim Woojin and Moon Jongup.
It appears that this current week is a bit light on with releases, so I will be able to review some of these releases and the releases from previous weeks that I have yet to touch.
This week’s throwback song was a song released just over 10 years ago. It is also still one of my favourite KPOP releases to date and it is by one of my favourite groups of all time. It is Sunny Hill’s Midnight Circus!
Non-Korean KPOP Release of the Week
I have just renamed this section because I was unhappy with what I was calling it previously (‘Non-Korean Track of the Week’). Essentially, it has to be a song released by a Korean artist/group, but in a language other than Korean.
Last week, I mentioned TXT’s Magic as a contender for last week’s featuring. But I ultimately chose a new release to feature. This week, I have gone with the mentioned song as it was played nonstop all of last week! High recommend Magic! Check it out!
The song and artist that tops the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 1st Week of July 2021 is Hello Future by NCT Dream! Congratulations to NCT Dream on another successful comeback and for such a great song! For more of the charts, scroll down below.
