10. Only One – APINK
In their 8th and last week in the Kpopway Top 10, it loses one place.
Song by the girlband APINK, from their third Korean long play album, “Pink Revolution”, released on September 26, 2016.
A song in which a girl starts a relationship and is falling in love, with the only boy that makes her feel comfortable and happy, and she does not want that feeling to come to an end.
09. Glory Days – CNBLUE
This song climbs one place, recovering a little bit this week, the 5th one in the ranking.
Song by the rock / pop band CNBLUE, from their 5th anniversary album, released for the Japanese market, “Euphoria”, of October 19, 2016.
The song was written specifically for their fans, as an anniversary gratitude song, that shows us a beautiful melody and lyrics in which they invite us to remember old times and overcome obstacles together. Because they do not fear the future, since they have their fans, which for them are their light; their glory days.
08. Dancing King – EXO & Yu Jae Seok
Completing 8 weeks in the Top Ten ranking, this songs says goodbye, falling 4 places.
By boyband EXO, in collaboration with Yu Jae Seok (a comedian and presenter), as part of the SM Station project and also as a collaboration with the Infinite Challenge program. Song released on September 17, 2016.
In the lyrics of the song, they invite you to dance all night and let yourself be carried by the rhythm, regardless of your circumstances, because life is unique.
07. Drive – Jay Park (ft. Gray)
A new release this week for the Top 10 ranking.
Song by singer Jay Park, featuring rapper Gray, one of the two title songs of his full length album “Everything You Wanted”. released on October 20, 2016.
A song in which a boy sings to the the girl he likes, who is everything for him. He tells her to go together for a ride in his car, and that when he has problems or feels overwhelmed, she is the one who calms his heart and that makes the worries disappear.
06. TT – Twice
Another week on the same place. Fourth week here in the Kpopway’s weekly ranking.
Song by the girlband Twice, from their album “Twicecoasterlane 1”, released on October 24, 2016.
A rather particular letter, especially in the choir. A girl is sad because, even though she feels mature, things do not go the way she wants. No matter how much she tries to put aside that boy who brings it out of her, she can not, and every time she feels more attracted to him. So she feels, as the chorus says, like two t’s (“TT”), which is an emoticon that represents sadness, because it shows tears that fall like waterfalls from the eyes.
05. Paradise – TEAM H
In its fifth week in the top ten, it seems no song will be able to move it from this place.
Song by boyband TEAM H, from their album “Monologue”, released on October 12, 2016.
A love song in dance rhythm, which is the predominant musical style in the repertoire of TEAM H. The lyrics is about a boy who is next to his beloved girl and, enjoying every moment with her, he says that for him, she is his paradise.

04. Hey Mama – EXO CBX
This song loses first place on its fourth in the ranking, dropping 3 places.
Song by EXO CBX boyband, an EXO sub unit, from their first (debut) extended play album “Hey Mama”, released on October 31, 2016.
In the lyrics of the song, a boy wants to see the girl he likes right now. And as it is getting late, he does not want her to go to her house to get ready, because it does not matter what she is wearing, she always looks good. He wants both of them to go out together that night and there’s no time to lose.
03. Blood, Sweat & Tears – BTS
This week, this song falls one place in its fifth in the ranking.
By boyband BTS – Bangtan Boys; song of their full-length album Wings, released on October 10, 2016.
A song with many interpretations and symbology, especially in the video. The lyrics directly addresses the journey to maturity and the stumbling blocks that are on the road, especially those that come in the form of temptations, as a consequence of having more money and fame.
02. Decalcomanie – Mamamoo
This is the third week of this song in the Kpopway ranking, and it was able to climb a little bit more, reaching the 2nd place.
Song of girlband Mamamoo, from their extended play album “Memory”, released on November 7, 2016.
The lyrics contain many references to casual sexuality. And the video is unfortunately full of scenes that show sexual aggression towards women, showing them as normal romantic situations. So no further comments here.
01. Prayer (I’ll Be Your Man) – BTOB
With a big 6 place climb, this song recovers its first place status, in its third week in the Kpopway ranking.
By the boyband BTOB. Song from his recently released extended play album “New Men”, of November 7, 2016.
