Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – October Week 4

Ailee’s “Don’t Touch Me” remains at No. 1 for the second week in a row. This song was highly ranked in all of our chart sources and won on Show Champion last week. It held off Roy Kim’s new song “Home.” Meanwhile, Kim Dong Ryul’s “How I Am” moves up one spot to No. 3. Congratulations to Ailee.

There are four new songs in the top 10 this week, three of which is in the top five. As mentioned, leading all the new songs is Roy Kim’s “Home,” moving up 16 spots to No. 2. This is the self written title song from Roy Kim’s second album of the same name. Using his trademark folk rock style, “Home” is about a person thinking of his family when he is feeling lonely. “Home” won on Music Core and M!Countdown last week and will try to overtake “Don’t Touch Me” for the top spot next week.

Up 17 spots to No. 4 is Younha’s latest hit “Wasted.” This ballad is written by Nell’s lead singer Kim Jong Wan. It has a calm melody and a refined rhythm. The lyrics are about love and separation, something that most of the listeners can relate to. “Wasted” is the first top five hit for Younha in more than four years. The last time was when she hit No. 1 in 2010 with “We Broke Up Today.”

Moving up nine spots to No. 5 is Akdong Musician’s new song “Time And Fallen Leaves.” After a successful run this past Spring with a trio of hit songs including the chart topper “200%,” Akdong Musician is making a surprising comeback with a song that is tailor made for the Fall season. “Time And Fallen Leaves” has a combination of guitar, string, and piano rhythm. Written by member Lee Chan Hyuk, this song is about letting go memories in fall like the fallen leaves.

One more new song at the bottom of the top 10, moving up seven spots is After School and Orange Caramel’s Raina. She had a successful hit this summer on the duet “A Midsummer Night’s Sweetness” with San E, and has also been in the top 10 many times in the past with her group songs. This is Raina’s first solo hit “You End, And Me” features the rapping of Kanto from TROY. This song is coming from her first digital single “Reset.” It is a ballad about a woman’s whose boyfriend suddenly left her. The sadness can be heard through the song.
