[Weekly Chart] 3rd Week of January 2019

Welcome back to the Weekly KPOP Chart segment of the site. Unfortunately, I am a little behind on the two posts allocated for Sundays (i.e this chart post and an album review). The album review will be published tomorrow. Likewise, the reviews for the releases today will also be published tomorrow. This is because of some unexpected tasks that appeared yesterday, which preoccupied me yesterday and today,

In the past week, the announcement for the 2018 KPOPREVIEWED Awards was published. These included in total 3 posts and are linked below. Do see who won which category (voted by you all, of course) and which song ended being ultimately the best song of 2018.

For this week, we see the rise of a rookie. ONEUS’ Valkyrie took out the top spot of the charts. Following closely behind is La La Love by WJSN (Cosmic Girls). In third place is SEVENTEEN’s Getting Closer, which also clinched the same position in the charts for the final week of 2018.

[Weekly Chart] 1st Week of January 2019

Welcome back to the Weekly KPOP Charts. It is time to see which song topped my Weekly KPOP Charts for the 1st Week of 2019. I just want to reiterate that these chart posts don’t get usually published this late in the night (for where I am, at least). It is just with a few things going on this week made me prepare and write this post so late. I also watched the  Golden Disk Awards last night and tonight, which further delayed my preparation. Congratulations are in order to all the winners, including iKON who was awarded Best Digital Song for Love Scenario and BTS for winning Best Album.

I am currently preparing for the 2018 KPOPREVIEWED Awards, which voting has now ended. Thank you to everyone who voted in the categories. So far, I have determined the Best Song for 2018 and am currently preparing the posts for publishing around the 17th and 18th of January. More updates to come!

In the meantime, let’s have a short recap of the Top 5 for this week’s chart! Rising to the top is SEVENTEEN’s Getting Closer. This is also SEVENTEEN’s 11th time on the top of charts, so congrats to the 13-member group on that feat! EXO remains steady with Love Shot. Chungha with Gotta Go and N.Flying with Rooftop takes out the third and fourth positions, while TVXQ’s Truth rose to the fifth position on the charts! For more of the charts, scroll down below.

[Weekly Chart] 4th Week of December 2018 & Happy New Year!!!

VOTING FOR THE 2018 KPOPREVIEWED AWARDS CLOSES AT 11:59PM AEST (LITERALLY 9 HOURS AWAY). THIS IS THE LAST CALL FOR ANYONE WHO HAS YET TO VOTE. CLICK HERE TO DO IMMEDIATELY!

I just want to first start off by wishing all my readers a Happy New Year! Hope you have fun celebrating the departure of 2018 and the arrival of 2019. 2018 has been amazing and my blog has grown to new heights. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the successful year that has past. All my goals and beyond were achieved, so I thank you all for reading and visiting my site. I hope 2019 will be a bigger and better year for the blog and KPOP itself.

Welcome to the final Weekly KPOP Chart post for 2018. Another year has gone by and has passed. We have seen great releases in 2018. However, there were tragic losses and heartbreaking disbandments throughout the year. But let’s end the year on a more positive note with the presentation of the Best Song for the 4th Week of December 2018.

This will be my final post for 2018 and I will be returning in a few days to start writing reviews for the 2019 releases. Lots of more content will be coming your way, including more reviews, weekly chart posts, special posts and finally an additional day for album reviews each week! Woo!

But before we get to that, we must see which song/artist topped the charts for the final week of 2018.  That honour goes to WINNER with their latest single, MILLIONS. EXO’s Love Shot rises to the second position, while SEVENTEEN’s Getting Closer takes the bronze podium. Completing the summary of the Top 5 is 2 other male groups – DAY6’s Days Gone By and No Air by The Boyz.

And we are fast approaching the end of the year. As you can tell by my cheesy and novice feature image, Christmas is literally right around the corner. And it is full steam ahead with preparations for the festive holiday, which is the reason why this chart post is a little late today. But nonetheless, it is here!

Taking the top spot of this week’s chart is Mamamoo’s Autumn comeback, Wind Flower. Following behind them is WINNER’s MILLIONS. DAY6’s Days Gone By rises from their debut spot last week to the third position, while No Air by The Boyz dropped from their silver podium to the fourth position this week. Finally, SEVENTEEN’s Getting Closer completes the top 5 for this week!\

[Weekly Chart] 2nd Week of December 2018

We have passed the halfway mark for the voting period in the 2018 KPOPREVIEWED Awards. Wanna One, BTS, Red Velvet and BLACKPINK are just some of the artists that are nominated. Have you supported your favourites? Click here to do so now!

Welcome back to another week in the KPOP industry and for the KPOPREVIEWED’s Weekly Charts. I have noticed that the number of releases has been slowly decreasing due to the impending end of 2018. But I have still different posts lined up for the end of 2018, so don’t you worry. I also plan on doing a little catch up for releases that I have missed throughout 2018. If you know any title tracks that I haven’t reviewed yet, comment below!

In other important news, I can confirm that LOONA’s music video theory posts will be published this week! I am currently putting the final touches on the layout and they will be released slowly throughout Wednesday. As a result, I will review any songs released on Wednesday on Thursday.

Now, let’s have a quick summary of the charts! Taking the top spot this week is Laboum’s Turn It Up. I was personally a little surprised of this outcome as I was more focused on the MAMAs than listening to music for the charts this week. In the second position is The Boyz’s No Air, while the third position went to Loved by HIGHLIGHT.  Completing the top 5 is EXID’s I Love You and IZ*ONE’s La Vie en Rose, respectively in the fourth and fifth positions.

If you want to know when I just posted a brand new post (let it be Music Video Theory, reviews, album review or Weekly KPOP Charts), follow my Twitter (@kpopreviewed).

But on with the charts before I can publish anything else! Topping the charts this week is EXID’s newest release, I Love You.

[Weekly Chart] 2nd Week of November 2018

Hello to all, once again. I hope you all had a fantastic week and are gearing up for another excellent week ahead. But before we can end the week and make a fresh start, we need to have a close look at the charts for the second week of November. Please excuse the hazy filter on the featured image. I don’t know why that is happening (it is completely fine when I open the file normally).

Topping the charts once again is Monsta X’s Shoot Out. This is their second week on the top, with the first being two weeks ago. Gugudan follows behind with Not That Type, landing in the second position from their 27th position last week. Last week’s number one song, Tempo by EXO dropped down the third position. TWICE remains steady with YES or YES, while JBJ95 rose one spot to complete the top 5 for this week.

Per usual, scroll down below for the rest of the top 30.

[Weekly Chart] 1st Week of November 2018

The year is wrapping up faster than expected. Welcome to the chart post for the first week of November 2018. November! It is crazy to think 2018 is almost up. Before we quickly get the charts, I just want to confirm that the music video theory post for UNB’s Sense/Feeling will be published later this week. Also, I have special plans for the album review section of the site, so watch this space!

Rising to the top of the charts this week is EXO’s Tempo, which I think has grown on me a fair amount, despite me already liking it when it first came out. Last week’s number 1 song, Shoot Out by Monsta X, dropped down the second position this week. La Vie en Rose by IZ*ONE remained steady, while digital queen TWICE and fromis_9 completed this week’s top 5.

[Weekly Chart] 3rd Week of October 2018

Welcome back to this week’s edition of the chart. As I have exams this week, this post is going to be one quick one. So let’s get going!

After weeks of a similar Top 5 rankings, there has been a mild shakeup with new artists taking over all but four of the positions. Weki Meki’s Crush rosed to the top of the charts this week, from its 13th position last week. NCT 127’s Regular also rose a fair bit, from its 24th position last week to the 4th position this week. Both VAV’s Senorita (2nd) and APRIL’s Oh! My Mistake (5th) begin their run on the charts in the top 5. The only song to remain in the Top 5 after 5 weeks (and this making its 6th week) is Oh My Girl’s Remember Me.

[Weekly Charts] 2nd Week of October 2018

Hello everybody. If you saw my tweet from yesterday, I have officially started my one week break before exams. But due to a few important assignments and exam preparation, I have decided to against publishing album reviews and Japanese song reviews for the next two weeks and I will return shortly after everything is wrapped up I will continue posting these weekly charts and song reviews as normal, so it isn’t massive hiatus like previous years.

For the past few weeks, a number of songs have dominated the Top 5 of the charts. This week, we have a slight changeup with three new songs entering the Top 5. Fromis_9’s new song, Love Bomb, clinched onto the 1st position. Sunmi’s Siren remains in the Top 5 by rising to the second position this week. Following Sunmi is Super Junior’s latest Latin comeback song with REIK, One More Time, and IU’s chart-topping single, BBIBBI. Finally, Oh My Girl finishes up the Top 5 with their single, Remember Me.

I did promise some things last week which I haven’t published yet. I will hold off on them and publish them once I have time (i.e. when the two weeks half-hiatus wraps up). Sorry. But next week, you can expect reviews for VAV, Stray Kids, Nakjoon, Kim Dong Han, Jung Eunji (APINK) and Lee Hong Gi, as they are the confirmed comebacks for next week, so far.

Regaining the top spot is GOT7’s Lullaby. This means Remember Me by Oh My Girl has dropped down to the second position once again. Dream Catcher’s What has risen to the 3rd position. iKON has made their return to the charts with their fourth-place ranking, with Goodbye Road, while Sunmi’s Siren has dropped down from fourth to fifth this week. For more of the charts, scroll down below.

Many comebacks this week including Super Junior, IU, Seven O’Clock, NCT 127, Snuper, AlphaBAT, Fromis_9, and Weki Meki this week, so expect some reviews this week! I will also be posting an album review for iKON later tonight and there may be another album review published on Thursday. On top of that, I will be publishing a review for VIXX new Japanese single next weekend! So lot’s to expect this week!
