[Weekly KPOP Chart] 1st Week of February 2023

January has flown by and we find ourselves in February 2023 already. This post is going to be a fast one (i.e. a reduced intro) as I have an album review to write up (hint: I mentioned it earlier this past week) and will continue to press on with the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards. I definitely made progress this week, but still a long way away. Here is the Weekly KPOP Charts for the 1st Week of February 2023.

Recap & New releases of the Week

It was a relatively slow week. Plus I was also trying to finish the counting for the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards. Definitely a fair way through, but not that close to the finish line just yet. However, I did manage to get reviews for NCT 127’s Ay-Yo, VIVIZ’s PULL UP and LE SSERAFIM’s Impurities. This week was also slightly heavy on the album review side, with album reviews for Dreamcatcher, XIUMIN, AB6IX and LE SSERAFIM‘s most recent album releases.

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

  • Still On My Brain – polar
  • Fly Away – BXB
  • Catch – Epik High ft. Hwasa (MAMAMOO)
  • HELLO – Sojung (LADIES’ CODE)

Throwback Corner

The throwback song of the week is a favourite of mine and many people (especially those who missed the group greatly – me included) – GFRIEND’s MAGO. The track has probably featured in this segment of this post three or four times. Main reason, apart from the one I already mentioned, is that was an awesome comeback and unexpected finish to their careers as a group.

Non-Korean Release of the Week

The Non-Korean release of the week is TWICE’s latest English single, MOONLIGHT SUNRISE, which ranks in the 19th position this week. MOONLIGHT SUNRISE serves as the pre-release track for the group’s upcoming March comeback, which was confirmed earlier this week. Like many of the non-Korean songs on this blog, I will get around to reviewing them when I have time.

The Charts

Congratulations to TXT for topping the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 1st Week of February 2023 with their latest single, Sugar Rush Ride. For now, keep on reading for more of the charts.
