[Weekly KPOP Chart] 5th Week of March 2022

We have just passed the end of March / early April mark of the calendar. How crazy fast is the year going? Welcome to another edition of the Weekly KPOP Charts, this time it is for the fifth week of March 2022 which spans that ‘end of March / early April’ period I just mentioned. It was a super big week for me, as I had to return to the office. That threw my week off, as it caused a bit of disruption on the review front (i.e. fatigue and a day of illness). I am hoping to get back into the groove a bit better this coming week, which will allow me to re-focus on the reviews. More song reviews, album reviews and I am hoping to make a start on a Queendom 2 recap & thoughts series. I am hoping to get Round 0 posted early this week, and Round 1 early next week. But we will see, pending how I settle into this week. Until then, here are the Weekly KPOP Charts for the 5th Week of March 2022.

New releases of the Week

In addition to NCT DREAM’s Glitch Mode, Oh My Girl’s Real Love, BAE173’s JAWS and PURPLE KISS’ memeM, here are the other new releases from this past week:

  • FREEZE – Stray Kids
  • Lonely St. – Stray Kids
  • Salute – MAJORS
  • With – Han Dong Geun
  • Detox – Feeldog
  • Make Your Dream – Haebin
  • Mother – Heize
  • Parallel Universe – NINE.i
  • Riding – UV & Choi Siwon (Super Junior)
  • Event Horizon – Younha
  • Blow – Jackson Wang (GOT7)
  • The Answer – DAYBREAK & LUCY
  • Ascension – Kingdom
  • Take You Down – Yugyeom (GOT7) ft. Coogie
  • WILDSIDE – Red Velvet

Throwback Corner

I managed to listen to more songs than what is on the Weekly KPOP Charts this week. And so, there is a bit of a selection of songs that I can choose this week’s Throwback Song from. My pick is Lovelyz’s Wag-Zak, which was released back in 2018. I still find it a massive disappointment that Lovelyz disbanded, though it is great that we are slowly seeing the members re-appear.

Non-Korean Release of the Week

The highest ranking non-Korean song this week is Mark Tuan’s Lonely, which placed in fourth position for this past week. This release will be covered in a future International Song Review segment (once I figure out a way to deal with the backlog).

The Charts

Congratulations to Oh My Girl for topping the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 5th Week of March 2022 with their latest single, Real Love. For more of the charts, keep on reading!
