Kpop Ranking - Kpopway Top 10, May 8, 2017

Our Comments, Song by Song:

10. IU – Palette

First new entry this week in the kpop ranking. Main song of her full-length album, "Palette", released on April 21, 2017.

A song in where she, IU, talks about herself, her different tastes, the difficulties she has to go through, because of malicious people. But although being different, she feels pretty and likes herself. Above all, she accepts herself and learned to know herself every day. In the song we can listen to the good rap of G-Dragon, member and leader of BigBang, in a great collaboration.

09. BTS – Not Today

A song that falls one position in the kpop ranking, and has 7 weeks with us. From their full length album "You Never Walk Alone", released on February 13, 2017.

In the lyrics, they give themselves strength and encouragement to go forward, with the confidence of success achieved and telling all their followers that if they are together, they will never die as a group, at least not today.

This song was in the first place for three consecutive weeks in our kpop ranking, but then began to fall a lot.

08. BTS – Spring Day

Title song of their full length album, “You Never Walk Alone” released on February 13, 2017. It falls five places and has four weeks in our kpop ranking.

In the lyrics of the song, a boy misses that girl that left him. For him, it is winter as long as she is far. He wants to forget her so that it does not hurt so much, but he can’t. He longs to be able to see her again, so that spring comes again to his life.

07. Black6ix – Please

Released as single album, on April 7, 2017. This is the second new entry of the week in our kpop ranking.

A boy loves the girl he is with, but he is afraid that she will leave him because he has nothing but his love for her. He asks her to trust him and stay by his side, even though he can’t give her what she wants now. He ask her saying please, because she's the only thing he has.

06. Kim Hyung-jun – Count On You

From his third extended play album, “AM to PM 5-11-3” released on March 8, 2017. This song falls two places this week and it has five weeks in our kpop ranking.

Song about a relationship that ended. A boy can’t concentrate on anything, because the memories about her, returns. He walks in the street, in the place where they walked together before. But she is not there anymore. And still not knowing where to go, he feels lost. He just wanted to find her again at the end of his road.

05. Hyorin & Changmo – Blue Moon

Third new entry for this week. Song released as single on April 14, 2017.

In the lyrics of the song, a boy and a girl declare their love and express how each of them can’t live without the other. She is the princess who wants to rest in his arms, and he is the gentleman who will never leave her alone. Both feel they are walking on the moon.

04. FTISLAND – Shadows

This song climbs two positions this week in our kpop ranking, and has 2 weeks now in the weekly top 10. From their seventh full length japanese album, “United Shadows”, released on April 12, 2017. This is a commemorative album, for their tenth anniversary.

The lyrics shows us someone searching for the meaning of his existence, going always forward, fighting in the shadows to reach the light in his path. Having hope on a better destiny.

03. CNBLUE – Between Us

Song of their seventh Korean extended play album, “7CN”, released on march 20, 2017. This album commemorates their seventh anniversary.

In its fourth week in the kpop ranking, climbs two positions.

A song about a relationship between a couple of friends, which is in ambiguous terrain. Is It the end of friendship and the beginning of a new relationship? He feels confused and in shock and his heart beats louder and louder for her.

02. Winner – Really Really

From their single album “Fate Number Four” released on April 4, 2017. This song loses its first place in the kpop ranking, falling one place in its third week in the ranking, after being two consecutive weeks in first place.

A fresh love song, in which a guy, deeply in love with a girl, tells her everything what she makes him feel, and that for him, she is the most beautiful thing his eyes saw. Feeling small and nervous, he asks her to accept his heart.

01. Highlight – Plz Don’t Be Sad

A song from their extended play album “Can You Feel It", released on March 20, 2017. This week, it climbs one place, achieving the first place, in its second week in the kpop ranking.

A boy tells his girl, that he will always be there for her and that he does not want to see her ever sad. That it causes him great pain to see her like that, and that he is willing to bear her sorrows himself, as long as can see her happy. All he wants is to be able to protect her. And he does not need anyone but her.
