As mentioned earlier today, I will be posting another Weekly KPOP Chart post today for the 2nd Week of January 2023 – i.e. the week that just passed. I got some posts to draft up for the next couple of weeks, as I am planning on going on another break the next week over. So today, it is another week post. So let’s get going!
Recap & New releases of the Week
This week, I covered 3 new songs releases (SF9’s Puzzle, MONSTA X’s Beautiful Liar, TAEYANG and Jimin’s VIBE) and 2 older tracks (Moonbyul’s PRESENT and Got the Beat’s Step Back). In addition to those five reviews, I also posted an album review for (G)I-DLE’s I LOVE mini-album from October of last year.
The following songs were also released this week and have been entered into the Weekly KPOP Charts system:
- I ≠ DOLL – Huh Yunjin (LE SSERAFIM)
- Because of You – Tritops
- Moonlight – Henry
- Reason – Dreamcatcher
- PRIMROSE – PRIMROSE
The throwback song of the week is TAEYANG’s Wedding Dress to celebrate TAEYANG’s grand return to the music industry. Wedding Dress is a nostalgic song for me, as it was one of my first exposures to KPOP (before I knew what KPOP even was). That was way back in 2009. I didn’t get into KPOP until 2010. Anyhow, it is one of the iconic releases at the time, so Wedding Dress is a true throwback.
Non-Korean Release of the Week
The Non-Korean release of the week is VERNON’s Black Eye, which ranks in the 10th position this week. Black Eye is VERNON’s first solo mixtape single and was released a couple of weeks back on December 23 of last year. A more detailed review will be coming your way in the future as part of the International Song Reviews segment.
Congratulations to MONSTA X for topping the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 2nd Week of January 2023 with their latest single, Beautiful Liar. For more of the charts, keep on reading.
