Welcome back to this week’s Weekly KPOP Chart. If you noticed from last week’s chart, I was in a very big rush to get it out last Sunday, so I ended up copying the text from the week before. Hahaha… I will try to not do that anymore. For this week, I ended this week’s chart 2 hours earlier and am writing all of this before I go to sleep (currently writing this on a Saturday. A little occupied tomorrow). Oh and reviews will continue (at a reasonable snail pace), so don’t worry.
I want to take a minute to discuss a few things.
- First of all, how you all like these weekly charts? I enjoy doing them (despite them taking a good chunk of my time), but I wonder if you guys like them.
- Another thing is Sonamoo’s debut on the chart (below). Sonamoo is in their 3rd week of charts already but just debuted. This is going to happen a bit. I would naturally overlook a few songs and then it will come back and haunt me. Exactly what happened here and I just fell in love with this song.
- The gap between first place and second place has been big these past weeks. However, the gap has become smaller. To the point, where GFriend was extremely close to taking out first place this week. My prediction is that first place will change next week. With who, I don’t know. Any of the top 3 this week could have taken it out.
A lovely reminder of the what the colours mean. Added a new one for songs that appear on the charts during their final week.
Green (↑) – Song has gone up in ranking
Pink (↔) – Song did not feature in top 20 of the previous week, but has re-entered this week’s top 20.
Red (↓) – Song has gone down in ranking
Blue (=) – Song has remained in the same position as the previous week
Orange (new) – Song debuts on the chart
Grey (Final Week) – Song appears on the chart for its final week.

As I mentioned last week some songs will be leaving the charts. They were a part of this week’s (24-30 July). However, as promised, the following songs have been removed from the charts due to finishing their 9-week span:
- Apple Pie – Fiestar (Peak: 2 – this did not occur on any of the charts published on the site, but occurred during trialling)
- L.I.E – EXID (Peak: 1 (x2) – these did not occur on any of the charts published on the site, but occurred during trialling)
- Free Somebody – Luna (F(x)) (Peak: 3 – this did not occur on any of the charts published on the site, but occurred during trialling)
- No Oh No – CLC (Peak: 7 – this did not occur on any of the charts published on the site, but occurred during trialling)
- Back Again – KNK (Peak: 11 this did not occur on any of the charts published on the site, but occurred during trialling)
