Welcome back to the next edition of the week charts and the second week of May 2018. Once again, I am extremely busy with university. So today is going to be a fast one. Just to let you know, I will still be posting reviews where possible. However, album reviews have been put on hold until next Sunday. Albums from (G)I-DLE, GFriend, Lovelyz, Teen Top and Dream Catcher are confirmed (and I am still on the deciding/listening through other albums).
Lots of comebacks and debuts this week. Usually, one or two of them pop up in the Top 5. But sadly that isn’t the case this week so I will give you a quick summary: Teen Top, SPECTRUM, Favorite, Cross Gene, Dream Catcher and Junhyung (HIGHLIGHT). It is expected that they will change things up next week. Also, possible artists making their splash on the charts next week include Kanto, BTS, N.Flying and the debut of UNI.T.
Last week’s number 1 song (That Day by Lovelyz) manages to hold onto the first position for the second week in a row. Following behind is GFriend’s Time For The Moon Night, which rises from the third position last week. (G)I-DLE, one of the newer groups in the industry, takes out the third position this week. Snuper’s Tulips enters the top 5 for the first time at the fourth position, while previous chart-topping single, Love It Like It by YDPP returns to the Top 5 in the 5th position.
Once again, there weren’t any ‘impressive’ jumps on the chart this week. However, a number of songs that weren’t in the top 30 last week did make it onto the charts this week. Just missing out on the top 30 this week are UP10TION’s Candyland and EXO-CBX’s Blooming Days.
