[Weekly KPOP Chart] 3rd Week of January 2023

Apologies once again for the delay in the Weekly KPOP Charts post. I did mention earlier in the week that the post will come out on Tuesday, but due to some timing issues I couldn’t get it out in time (a.k.a. I started it pretty late in the evening). But as I always say, better late than never.

Also, Weekly KPOP Charts posts usually come out on Sunday, but this past Sunday was the Lunar New Year. As I celebrate this cultural holiday, I opted to not post on that day (hence the delay to Tuesday, which ended up blowing out to today). Anyhow, before we proceed with the Weekly KPOP Charts for the 3rd Week of January 2023, I want to wish everyone a prosperous year ahead, with an abundance of good luck, peacefulness and good health. Now with the formalities out of the way, here are the Weekly KPOP Charts for the 3rd Week of January 2023.

Recap & New releases of the Week

Last week, I covered 4 new songs releases (GOT the beat’s Stamp On It, YENA’s Love War, cignature’s AURORA and Jinyoung’s Cotton Candy) and ONEUS’ 8th mini-album review, MALUS.

The following songs were also released this week and have been entered into the Weekly KPOP Charts system:

  • Go or Back – KOTA (SUNNY HILL) ft. D-Hack

Throwback Corner

The throwback song of the week is SECRET’s Love Is Move. This is one of my favourite tracks from the group. It had the a nice dosage of retro, fun and sexy. Plus it was a catchy release released at the height of carreer.

Non-Korean Release of the Week

The Non-Korean release of the week is Jungkook’s Dreamers, which ranks in the 17th position this week. Dreamers was released as part of the soundtrack for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which was played in Qatar last year. Jungkook also performed Dreamers at the opening ceremony of the World Cup. Dreamers was also the Non-Korean Release of the Week for the 1st Week of December 2022.

The Charts

Congratulations to Stray Kids for topping the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 3rd Week of January 2023 with their latest single, FAM (the Korean version). FAM was released as part of the group’s ‘second Korean compliation album, SKZ-Replay, which dropped at the end of last year. I have plans to review FAM and SKZ-Replay sometime in the future, so watch out for both a song and album review. But for now, keep on reading for more of the charts.
