Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2013 – December Week 2

Sistar’s Hyorin grabs all the headlines on this week’s chart as both of her title songs “One Way Love” and “Lonely” moves into the top 10, with “One Way Love” up 18 spots all the way to No. 1, just edge out last week’s top song 2NE1’s “Missing You.” Congratulations.

Known as one of the best vocalists among female idol group members, Hyorin recently released her first solo album “Love & Hate.” Before this release, Hyorin has already participated in many drama OST’s. Using the slow dance concept that works well for her sub-unit Sistar19 earlier this year, “One Way Love” is about a girl’s thought on the sadness of having a one way love and not getting loved in return. It also features the much criticized crab dance. “One Way Love” is written by Brave Brothers and it is the third song of this genre written by the hitmaker this year. Sistar19’s “Gone Not Around Any Longer” and After School’s “First Love” were also big hits. “One Way Love” has already won on MBC Music Core last week, M!Countdown, and KBS Music Bank this week.

Label:
SM Entertainment
Release Date: February 19th, 2013

SHINee“s been a busy, busy group this year, knocking out comeback after comeback with very little time for breaks in between- so much so that it seems like “Dream Girl“, their first video of 2013, came out much earlier than it actually did. The video features all five guys navigating a strange, topsy-turvy dream world while chasing a faceless girl in a painting through rooms where time and gravity have no meaning.

Best Pepero Kisses for Pepero Day!

November 11 marks Pepero Day, a South Korean holiday! As this particular date looks like a line of Pepero sticks, or cookie sticks, (11/11) Koreans like to take this opportunity to show their friends and loved one affection by exchanging these sweet, thin snacks.

K-Pop fans may know of Peperos not only as a delicious treat, but as the enabler of some awesome eye candy, especially when idols utilize them for a Pepero kiss! The Pepero kiss game is where two people need to eat a Pepero together, “Lady and the Tramp” style, to make the shortest possible leftover in the middle. Of course, they can always choose to leave nothing in the middle and go for that kiss.
