New Entries

This week features 19 new entries to the chart.  A lot of the Christmas and holiday songs finally made their exit and agencies are starting their aggressive comeback schedules for their artists.

At number 100 is LAZMOD Feat. Na Hyun with their dance/indie single Parallel Lines.  The vocals are on the haunting side, but the synths just make it so nice.

Lots of hip hop songs make their entry this week.  CROWN J comes in at number 95 with Made It.  There are two videos for this one, a regular music video and a 360 view one.  At 94 there’s MC Sniper, Song Rapper and Vido Sung Woo with Feel Like Yesterday which has a slight old school feel.  NiiHwa feat. As One comes in at 92 with Say Yes. If you don’t really pay attention, you would have thought the video was for the pop/rock group Say Yes, instead of the song being titled Say Yes.

Two more EDM-ish songs also make their entry.  At Number 93, the collaboration project between Sungwoo JungA & Jung Yong Hwa comes in with Fireworks.  This is a bit different from the other collaboration single, Hello which is a ballad.  Yub Project makes their entry at 91 with Today, which is less of a vocal track but a more uplifting trance track.

Kiggen is back with another collaboration single with Eluphant, Ravi (from VIXX) and Esbee, called I’m Serious coming in at 86.  Mintgray‘s indie/AC song Cold World comes in at 85.  The song is a on the sad side making you feel the cold chill of the season.  Actor/singer (and apparently rapper) Lee Hyun Woo debuts at 84 with his collaboration with Geeks’ Louie, called Your Face.  Hopefully Hyun Woo didn’t drink all that alcohol as shown in the video.

Veteran singer Yoon Jong Shin is back with another monthly single project at 75.  This time he collaborates with Epik High’s Tablo for his new single The First.  BUMKEY also collabs with Tablo for his new single Better Man.  Wonder if he’s trying to be a better man since he’s going to be a father soon.  Baechigi is also back this week with their new single Bawling with vocals from Yeo Eun from Melody Day.  Ashgray (remember them from their surprise hit The Little Prince), is back with a more pop song called Push & Pull.  The song would have debuted sooner but it kept falling by the wayside for me.  Vocalist Kim Na Young‘s well performing single on the official Korean sales charts, What If It Was Going, makes its start at 71.  The ballad actually is really good and the Run To You video shows how excited she can be while performing for fans.

Yoon Mirae‘s collaboration single with Punch comes in at 55 called How Are You.  Reply 1988 is still putting out singles, this time it’s Yeo Eun from Melody Day covering Let’s Forget It.  Shinhwa’s Shin Hye Sung comes back with his solo project Roco Drama at 53.  At first I thought the song was a bit weird, bit it does grow on you after a while.

WINNER is prepping for their comeback really soon, and the pre-release single Pricked featuring Minho & Taehyun comes in at number 39.  The song is pretty minimal in terms of instrumentation, but simple is good sometimes.  MONSTA X rounds out the debuts this week with their song Amen.  While technically it was the song they actually performed when Rush come out, their dance practice video, Right Now series ad some special stages on music shows helped for this to debut.  Hopefully IM gets well soon.

Notable Moves This Week

This week has several notable moves on the chart.  For many of these songs, they had a slow start last week and now their active promotions are finally catching up or the songs really grew on me.

Rooftop House Studio feat. Ben‘s, Whenever, That Time moves up 31 places to number 60 this week.  The song isn’t as catchy as their previous hit but I’m warming up to it.

MONSTA X‘s Gone Bad benefits from their Right Now series promotions as Gone Bad zooms up 55 places to 37.  Can’t help but laugh watching these beagles on that show and how close they actually are.

Road Boy‘s digital single Be My Love goes up 52 places to 36 mostly due to being on every single music show.  The song is pretty catchy too, though it would be nice to have an actual music video instead of dance practices.

The biggest move of the week is from FlaShe with Lip Bomb which makes a 61 position leap to 28.  While their previous concepts were more cute, this time they go for a more sexy look.  I actually liked their cute look better, but their current song is good… so it’s a case where the preferred visual and song don’t always match for me.

CoCoSoRi also makes a pretty decent move up 39 places to 16 with their laugh out loud video for Dark Circle.  GIVE ME BROCCOLI~!

The Top 10

The top 10 didn’t change too much this week but it did in notable places… how’s that for a tease…

At 10 this week is who else but BTS with Butterfly.  While their promotions for their latest album have stopped in Korea, we’re all hoping for a followup promotion, but I don’t think that’ll happen really soon.

iKON falls 2 places to 9 with What’s Wrong.  Not bad still considering they have 2 singles in the top 10.

Suzy & Baekhyun‘s silky ballad Dream breakes into the top ten going up 11 places to number 8.  Melody Day‘s ballad with Ravi, When It Rains goes up 9 places to 7.  Looks like the winter season just makes me love ballads.

Turbo drops back 2 places to 6 with Again.  Looks like my retro fix is starting to wear off.  Doesn’t help they stopped heavily promoting it as well.

LABOUM is making their slow climb up the chart.  This week they move up one more spot into the Top 5 with AALOW AALOW… Chicka-chaaa….

Royal Pirates also goes up another spot to 4, still not besting their former peak of number 2, but the song just doesn’t want to go away mostly since they’re still featured on all the major music shows.

BTS‘s grip on number 1 finally loosens as Run falls to number 3.  Which means we have a new number 1 this week.

And… its not iKON.  Dumb and Dumber gets blocked again, and holds at number 2 for a 4th straight week.  The only other song that had this kind of luck was Davichi’s Turtle which got stuck behind Girl’s Day’s Expectation for 5 weeks.

At number 1 this week Dal*Shabet wishes their ex meets their match with Someone Like U.  The retro song just won me over and we’ll have to see how long the song hands on as there are tons of comebacks coming in the next few weeks.
