Weekly Charts: November 15- November 21
New songs released this week feature sentimental touches suiting the melancholy mood of the season. For the third week of November, this week’s artists remind us of the strength of fate, confronting our pain, and our need for companionship in times of desolation.
CONNECTED BY DESTINY
Wanna One share their fondest memories one last time with “Spring Breeze” from their first and final album, 1¹¹=1 (Power of Destiny). The 11 members recall their most vivid memories with their loved ones, remembering every single detail of their first meeting. These heart-fluttering sensations remain even after their departure as they look forward to their next encounter with every spring breeze, reminiscent of their first day together. Although a farewell song, this powerful dance track acts as a final celebration for the group, raising hope for the members and fans to cross paths again. Topping charts like MelOn at number one and Instiz at number two, cherish your fondest memories－from the most joyful to most sorrowful－with this sentimental track.
THE BEAUTY OF PAIN
BTOB let their tears fall with “Beautiful Pain,” released on November 12 from their twelfth EP HOUR MOMENT. The band’s latest pop ballad showcases the group at their most vulnerable when suffering from a painful breakup. Shrouded in endless memories of their past relationships, the members suffocate from the loss of their loved ones. Rather than acting out of spite, they acknowledge the inevitable pain that comes with love and express their raw emotions, sorrowful tears and cries, not holding back. Taking the number five spot on Instiz and number six on NAVER, BTOB’s newest ballad comforts listeners as a shoulder to cry on during our most painful heartaches.
ENVELOPED IN DARKNESS
Dynamic Duo seeks company amidst isolation with the single release of “Hemi’s Room” on November 12. Featuring the gentle vocals of Oh Hyuk, lead singer of HYUKOH, the duo’s latest rap ballad explores the inner thoughts and feelings of desolation. Black and white filters used in the video express the lyrics’ bleak tone and life outside enclosed in squares that represent light shining into the dark room. Currently charting on number eight on Bugs! and number nine on Genie, “Hemi’s Room” confronts the gloomy ambiance that comes with the frigid season.
