Jung Kook continues to top Circle Chart's Global K-pop rankings in February [GLOBAL K-POP CHART]


Jung Kook started his mandatory military service more than three months ago, but his presence in the K-pop scene remains strong.

Circle Chart's Global K-pop chart for the first full week of February (Feb. 4 – Feb. 10) saw Jung Kook’s “Standing Next to You” (2023) in first place, pushing back last week’s winning song, “Love wins all,” to second.

Circle Chart's Global K-pop Chart combines streaming data from platforms worldwide, including Korean steaming services Melon, Genie, Flo, Bugs, Vibe and international streaming services Apple Music, Spotify and YouTube.

Jung Kook’s “Standing Next to You” is the lead track of his first solo full-length album “GOLDEN.” The song has topped the chart since its release in November.

“Love wins all” is the prerelease track for IU's upcoming sixth EP, “The Winning,” which is set for release next Tuesday.

LE SSERAFIM’s English single “Perfect Night” (2023) followed in third place. The track, released in collaboration with Blizzard Entertainment’s online shooter game Overwatch 2, saw success in Korea and abroad. It became the first English track released by a K-pop girl group to top Melon’s Top 100 real-time streaming chart and the daily, weekly and monthly charts.

Two (G)I-DLE songs followed. “Super Lady,” the lead track from the group’s second full-length album “2,” landed at fourth, while the prereleased track “Wife” is fifth.

“2,” released on Jan. 29, is (G)I-DLE’s new eight-track full-length album. It is the group’s first album in seven months since its sixth EP, “I feel,” and its first full-length album release since “I Never Die” in March 2022.

All five members — Soyeon, Miyeon, Minnie, Shuhua and Yuqi — took part in either composing songs or writing lyrics for the album.

“I GOT YOU,” TWICE’s prereleased track for its 13th EP “With YOU-th,” landed in eighth place, 32 steps higher than last week. TWICE’s 13th EP is set to be released on Feb. 23.

The Global K-pop chart this week also saw aespa’s “Drama” (2023) in sixth, Jung Kook’s explicit version of “Seven” (2023) in seventh, NewJeans’ “Super Shy” (2023) in ninth and Jung Kook’s “3D” (2023) in 10th place.
