  5. I must admit that I didn't expect this next song to receive so much support.

    Minstrelmoo are back in the top 10! After slightly flopping with their previous single Yes I Am (it only peaked at number 13), these problematic unnies barge right back into KPJC relevance with Starry Night.

    I must say this is a grower. Unlike most of y'all, I don't actually hate Mamamoo. But God did I hate Starry Night on first listen dddd. I hated how pretentious it sounded ddddd.

    But I have grown to not hate this. Do I use? Yeah, sure. If it comes on shuffle, I won't hit next. I like that the girls didn't channel their meme-y side because that gig's gotten stale. I'm sorry. There's a maturity to Starry Night that actually works for the girls.

    The vocals are sensational as per usual. Wheein's vocals are criminally underrated but they work so well here. Hwasa and Solar also sound amazing. It's Moonbyul that sadly got slightly shafted here. I would've liked a longer rap from her.

    The music video is cute too. The girls are seriously serving lqqks. Hwasa was feeling it. My fave is Solar doing her absolute most in the beach. Let me steal some of your poses the next time I go to the beach, unnie. Kekeke.

    Alouder98: I KNOW (SOL: Ddddd why did this make me scream?)

    BEST FICTION: This is a bop, don't @ me.

    eliminathan: I know, I hate that I'm stanning but I can't deny they're all great singers and this is easily their best piece of work. Solar's part right before the chorus gets me every time. (SOL: Decalcomanie remains unbothered by this. xoxo)

    karmarisma: This is such a based bop and the girls all look absolutely flawless with this new styling. It sounds a bit like a Western pop song I've heard but it works so well.

  6. Not me submitting a ballot this month only to support Miss Young and giving some pity points to other acts to not seem suspicious and...... then all of them charting except Remember Me

    Unnie couldn't hold on to that number 1 in the song chart though.

    Our last edition's number 1 song, the still fantastic, still iconic One Shot, Two Shot, spends its second month in the top 10. Still a formidable achievement.

    I'm sad that BoA unnie only performed this for, like, a week. I would've loved her to promo this more because every performance has been perfect. Come back soon, babe!

    Cotton Park: I still can't get enough. This is my "send this to someone who doesn't know KPop" song of the month. Well, last month. "Lady" is the new one.

    Yes, I did not vote for NCT Dream. Yes, I gave my 10 to NCT 127. Don't @ me.

    NCT 127 finally escaped the Bubbling Under Chart and even entered the top 10 with their gorgeous new single, Touch. TALENT.

    This is such a Popjustice moment for the Vocal Line of NCT 127. They were always under-utilized before and it is so good to here them front and center on Touch. Mark is my child and Taeyong is cute too but they need to GTFO once in a while. Taeil and Doyoung sound so amazing (especially Moonie Taeilie) but lead vocalists Jaehyun and Haechan also sound pretty stellar.

    And the music video is perfect. It's an SM music video-in-a-box but it really works here. YATH APPROPRIATE SHINee'S FORMER PASTEL COLOUR OBSESSION A BITSY! Can I just say that it is so weird seeing Taeyong genuinely smile for once? Dddddd the boy is always smirking and shooting sexy stares. It's so nice to see him let loose and be young. It makes his robotic appearance fade for a while.

    Also, I have seen a lot of people say that this should've been an NCT Dream single. And I say, no, NCT 127 deserved this. As much as I stan my NCT Dream babies, they just don't have the vocals for this.

    Touch is now my most favourite NCT 127 single and I must say that it genuinely made me see them in a new, postive light. Still, Yuta's jaw scares me. xoxo

    karmarisma: Okay I'm such trash for NCT 127 and this happy anthem just makes me so soft and uwu because that MV is freaking adorable. It never fails to make me smile. The song is heavenly, because Mr Moon Taeil's vocal skills do not lie. It's just a very well made song that shows off NCT's vocal talents. (SOL: YATHHHHHH MY FELLOW TAEIL STAN!!! SM did him dirty with that hairstyle though. I'm fuming.))

    SophiaSophia: I like that 127 decided to switch concepts with the dreamies cause for once they had clothes that actually looked good. (SOL: Dddddd hjalp. Tea though. x)

    eccentricsimply: Not even for a second during my non-ironic Cherry Bomb stanning I expected 127 to ever come up with a song as great as this one, but alas.

  9. Starry Night is actually quite nice.
    Slice of Life and eliminathan like this.
  10. @Slice of Life in “giving his 10 to the NCT track with concept closest to Kindergarten-class-on-a-field-trip” shocker.
  11. [​IMG]

    I know Olivia Hye has this month in the bag and I'm fine with that because her song is tied for the best LOONA song whereas GOT7 and MONSTA X oppas still have better songs than these bops. Now I'm just curious to see if Bibidi Bobidi Boo made it over Look and Jealousy.
  12. Touch was the worst of the NCT tracks, to me.

    Baby Don't Stop > Go > Boss > Touch.

  13. Wow.

    Heize notches her first KPJC top 10 with new single, Jenga.

    Jenga sees Heize goes jazzy and, ugh, it works? It's very chill and not very bombastic but it never goes boring. Heize also abandons her rapping gig here which honestly quite surprised me.

    The music video is A Fave though. I love, love, love retro styling and Heize unnie pulls off all the lqqks. Kween of both music and fashion? Talent.

    Admittedly, I like Mianhae more now but I still use and abuse Jenga.

    Squashua: I was really looking forward to this based on the MV teaser and, whilst it's still great, it's not quite as strong as Star and Don't Know You/ You, Clouds, Rain were previously. Mianhae also kinda overthrew it by not needing a feature and including a Heize rap so that's why it's down in the 3 point spot. Still, it's super jazzy & woozy and Gaeko sounds great on it, even if it does feel a smidgen like a 2.0 version of Park Boram's Why, You?

    eccentricsimply: Anything Heize touches turns to gold, to be honest. Although it doesn't catch me the way Don't Know You did, Jenga is still pretty solid.

    Island: I love the chill piano vibes of this. I kinda wish IU did something more like this. (SOL: You should check out IU's duet with Oh Hyuk called Can't Love You Anymore.)
  15. Let's start our top 5 with...

    An album track?

    And Rosy is now officially the highest ranked LOOΠΔ album track yet. Final Unnie did that!

    Rosy is the b-side to Egoist and sung by Olivia Hye and Go Won... with a killer rap by Heejin. In fact, I think Heejin stole the spotlight here. Kween!

    Olivia Hye and Go Won aren't exactly the best LOOΠΔ vocalists and it shows here. There are no vocal acrobatics a la See Saw. But Olivia Hye and Go Won sound convincing enough and more than hold their own. The production is also very good.

    Is it the best LOOΠΔ album track? No, by a long shot. Am I pressed that it's now the highest charting LOOΠΔ album track? Yes, for sure. But Rosy is not a bad song and doesn't deserve to be dragged so Imma let it be cute. xoxo

    He: I wasn’t so sure about this, I love the beat but the droning vocals bother me a bit (Ms. Go Won especially) but it’s an undeniable great track. So much quality from LOONA, ugh. (SOL: Ddddd your Go Won draggery keeps me young.)

    ryjm: The first meets the last, the hunter meets the prey...a butterfly also happens to be fluttering around. One of the best B-sides so far. Olivia and Go Won & Only have a great back and forth (the pineapple princess has a lovely distinct tone). It's also great too hear HeeJin squeeze in a rap.

    Look is the single off GOT7's new mini album, Eyes on You. And it is a gigantic bawp for the ages.

    Look is probably the poppiest GOT7 single in recent memory. Co-composed by Daddy JB, Look is just effortlessly fun. It just gets me in a mood to dance and be silly. That chorus is just insanely catchy. JB really is turning out to be a formidable songwriter. After the criminally underrated You Are, it's nice to see him explore a different sound for this era of GOT7.

    Jinyoung getting major vocal lines? Yath. Yugyeom and Jinyoung (my two main faves) getting a dance solo (or duet? dddd)? Yath. Jackson doing the most again and rapping with that fake big voice of his? Okay, Imma let it pass.

    This single really made me reevaluate GOT7. I'm ready to stan again. But can we please give Yugyeom a good hairstyle next time around?

    ryjm: Certainly not their best, but also not their worst. I have a soft spot for these guys, nothing groundbreaking but every playlist needs some high quality filler.

    junglefish: Yes Jinyoung get it (sorry I'm only commenting to get points xx) (SOL: You're a whore.)

    karmarisma: I find most of GOT7's music to be absolute seureki but this album and this song are a step in the right direction. I'm living for this.

    Serg.: This is such a bop, shame the anti-men cliqueu here will not allow it to chart high (SOL: The anti-men clique can choke. xoxo)

    BEST FICTION: This song is really good and y'all should stan!

    eliminathan: Another fantastic comeback, they've really been making great music recently and also Jinyoung. (SOL: Off-topic, but I'm so, so happy that you practically singlehandedly made GOT7 relevant here on KPJ. That impact doe.)

    (Jackson can't do the hand wave choreography properly and it's giving me life dddd.)

    And Monsta X's new single, Jealousy, reigns supreme as the highest charting boy group song this edition of KPJC! Congrats, oppas!

    Jealousy continues Monsta X's winning singles run that started with last year's Beautiful. At first, I wasn't really awed by this. And the topsy-turvy music video didn't help to make me love the song either. But further listens really made me love this now and I'll probably give this more than 2 points if we were voting today.

    Despite the ""swagging"" nature of the song, it doesn't sound cringe-worthy. It helps that the guys are drowning in charisma. Some people may find the rap sections cringey but I really enjoy them. They give the song more grit.

    Overall, Jealousy is another remarkable Monsta X single and I'm hoping that they get more recognition soon. Talent should not remain unrecognized.

    Ceir: Jooheon does the ABSOLUTE MOST with his rap bits and I’m here for it. Also, that Shownu line that Wonho song had me cracking up. Another “I’m not Suzy” moment.

    BEST FICTION: Not my favourite comeback from them, but it's good

    eliminathan: While I still think Destroyer is better, this could be their fourth/fifth best song which is honestly pretty good. A much better song than Dramarama so I hope they get a win. (SOL: To be fair, Destroyer is better than most boy group singles this year. Oop.)

    Suprise! CLC's Black Dress maintains its second place finish for the second month in a row. And it earned 100+ points again too. Flop Kweens did that.

    This surprisingly doesn't sound stale yet. I thought I'd get tired of it after a month but my love for it only grew more.

    And can we talk about the girls looking mighty fine IN EVERY SINGLE PERFORMANCE? LordT, they have been killing it lately. When will they kill the charts too? Kii.

    BEST FICTION: A timeless bop.

    He: Sorn and that pre-chorus. Enough said. (SOL: Yath. Sorn is still everything.)

    Squashua: STILL. HITTING. ME. HARD



    ThighHighs: Ok this knocks let me backtrack on last month a bitsy.

    Cotton Park: This is still making me crazy. It's gone from giving me an EXID vibe to an Afterschool vibe. Keep doing this, CLC. Please. (Hitting repeat now.)

    ryjm: Clearly South Korea still isn't here for CLC, so imma try and get them a win somewhere. Just a reminder that Black Dress still knocks, the final tempo shift at the end is life affirming. (SOL: I hated the tempo shift last month. Now I stan it so much.)

    eliminathan: Y'all did them dirtier than Korea did. (SOL: I hope you're happy now. xoxo)
