Honestly, how is it already May? The year is moving too fast already! Welcome to the Weekly KPOP Charts post for the 1st Week of May 2023. Per usual, I am going to keep the intro short. I am going to write up the final 2022 album reviews today and have them posted sometime in the new week. This hopefully will mean I will be making a start on the 2023 album reviews soon, possibly even next weekend. More song reviews – both songs that I have yet to review that were released this year and new releases – are also expected. But first, the Weekly KPOP Charts!
Recap & New releases of the Week
So this past week featured reviews for three new releases – LE SSERAFIM’s UNFORGIVEN, BTOB’s Wind And Wish and iKON’s U. I also posted a review for UP10TION’s What If Love and album reviews for a number of 2022 album reviews – Ha Sung Woon’s Strange World, Xdinary Heroes’ Overload and NCT DREAM’s Candy.

This week’s throwback song is HIGHLIGHT’s Not The End. Its message of a new beginning (rather than the end) popped into my head this week and drew me to the song.
Non-Korean Release of the Week
This week’s non-Korean release of the week is Golden Child’s 3rd Japanese single, Crayon, which was released mid-last month. It ranks in the 18th position this week.
Congratulations to NCT DOJAEJUNG for rising to the top spot on KPOPREVIEWED’s Weekly KPOP Chart this past week with their debut single, Perfume. For more of the charts, keep on scrolling down.
