[Weekly KPOP Chart] 4th Week of January 2022

Hey all! Welcome to another Weekly KPOP Chart post – this time for the 4th and final week of January 2022. It was a slightly busy week for the blog, with the announcement of winners for the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Awards and some reviews for some new ‘fresh off the press’ releases and some one week old releases. Check out the links to the 2021 KPORPEVIEWED Awards winner post if you haven’t by clicking the hyperlink in the previous sentence, or any of the newly published reviews down below!

This week is Lunar New Year and so the KPOP will be slowing down its releases for this week (you might notice that some of the weekly South Korean music shows have cancelled their show for this week) as everyone is going home to be with family in Korea. As such, I am hoping to use this week as an opportunity to catch up. Before that however, I just want to wish you all a new year full of happiness, luck and prosperity. Happy Lunar New Year!

New releases of the Week

In addition to PENTAGON’s Feelin’ Like and Wanna One’s special reunion single Beautiful (Part 3), here are the other releases of the week:

  • Love Affair – Niel (TEEN TOP)
  • Rica Rica – NATURE
  • loop – Kim Jeong Uk
  • Because – ASH ISLAND
  • Love Story – Kyuhyun (Super Junior)
  • Plus n Minus – Yein
  • A WOO!! – Golden Child
  • Luxury – Boun
  • Mother Nature – IU & Kang Seungwon
  • Pieces of Stars Shining on You – TRIPTOPS
  • Daydreamer – T1419

Throwback Corner

This week’s throwback corner song is ASTRO’s All Night, which has been a past single that I have been revisiting a lot in the past week (along with the rest of the group’s lead singles). This track is still one of their best to date!

Non-Korean Release of the Week

The highest ranking non-Korean song this week is Golden Child’s Japanese debut single, A WOO!!, which was released earlier this week. Me being a fan of Golden Child’s more recent work has me curious on what their Japanese work will be like. More detailed thoughts on their debut will be coming in the following weeks.

The Charts

Congratulations to PENTAGON for taking the top spot of KPOPREVIEWED’s Weekly KPOP Chart with their latest comeback single, Feelin’ Like! For more of the charts, keep on reading!
