[Weekly KPOP Chart] 1st & 2nd Weeks of November 2022

Apologies for my absence over the last two weeks. I will be posting two Weekly KPOP Charts posts (one for the 4th Week of October and another for the combined 1st and 2nd Weeks of November 2022). I will be back to posting reviews starting from tomorrow.

Welcome back to the present with the Weekly KPOP Charts posts for the 1st and 2nd Weeks of November 2022 – a period spanning from the 30th of October to the 12th of November 2022. Due to my absence over the last two weeks for personal reasons, I have combined the 1st and 2nd Weeks of November together to form one week to limit the impact on the Weekly KPOP Charts segment (and hence the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards – again an announcement will be made in coming days about this). This is the first time this has happened in KPOPREVIEWED history! We will back to usual one-week Weekly KPOP Charts next week and reviews from Monday (i.e. tomorrow). Until then, here are the Weekly KPOP Charts for the 1st and 2nd Weeks of November 2022.

Throwback Corner

This week’s throwback corner belongs to LOONA’s Why Not?, one of the two singles released by LOONA in 2020. I had a inkling for a fun LOONA song this week and Why Not? was the first one to pop into my mind. Many listens later and here is where Why Not? lies this weeks.

Non-Korean Release of the Week

This week’s Non-Korean Release is OnlyOneOf’s Zurui Onna, ranking in the 19th position for these two weeks. A review for Zurui Onna is coming soon, so keep monitoring the blog for that review in an upcoming International Song Reviews post.

The Charts

Congratulations to Rie (from OnlyOneOf) for topping the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 1st and 2nd Weeks of November 2022 with because. This is Rie’s and OnlyOneOf’s first release to top the Weekly KPOP Chart segment on my blog. Congratulations once again! For more of the charts, keep on reading.
