This is on time and posted on the right week! Woo! Pat on my back indeed. Welcome to the Weekly KPOP Charts segment for the 3rd Week of August 2022 (i.e., the week that just passed). I am not going to keep the intro long this week. I have a review and an album review (or two) coming your way tonight, so I am going to start work on those right after I post this. And of course, more reviews coming your way when it all starts off tomorrow. In the meanwhile, here is the recap and Weekly KPOP Charts for the 3rd Week of August 2022.
Recap & New releases of the Week
Out of the new releases this week, I wrote reviews for THE BOYZ’s WHISPER, ONF’s Your Song and BLACKPINK’s Pink Venom. I also posted reviews for KARD’s Ring The Alarm and JO YURI’s Love Shhh!. On the album review front, there were album reviews for NCT DREAM, LE SSERAFIM, BAE173, Kwon Eun Bi and CRAVITY.

This week’s throwback song was released 10 years ago! SPICA’s Lonely was this week’s throwback song. I have been replaying SPICA’s songs a lot lately, and so it is about time I feature them on this segment again!
Non-Korean Release of the Week
This week’s non-Korean release is XG’s MASCARA, which was released at the end of June this year. The English based song ranked in the 24th position this week. For those who don’t know XG is a Japanese pop group currently based in South Korea, which debuted last year with TIPPY TOES. MASCARA was promoted in South Korea on the usual music shows, and so I consider it eligible for the Weekly KPOP Charts. Per most of the international collaborations and singles by Korean artists, I have yet to review this one. But I will get around to it eventually!
Congratulations to SNSD for topping the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 3rd Week of August 2022 with FOREVER 1. This is the second week in the row in which both SNSD and FOREVER 1 have topped my Weekly KPOP Charts. For more of the charts, keep on reading.
