LE SSERAFIM's 'EASY' takes top spot again


Circle Chart's Global K-pop chart is “EASY” for LE SSERAFIM; the girl group has held its first-place position for two weeks in a row. Its B-side track “Smart” also took fourth place for the last week of February (Feb. 25 – March 2).

“EASY” is an album where the girl group “frankly talks about worries and uneasiness that lie behind the confident side of LE SSERAFIM,” in the words of its leader, Chaewon.

The album includes five songs: “Good Bones,” “Swan Song,” “Smart,” “We got so much” and the title track, which blends R&B with trap, while the dance is rooted in old-school hip-hop — all of which are somewhat distant from the group's previous releases.

The group’s English single, “Perfect Night,” released in collaboration with Blizzard Entertainment’s online multiplayer shooter game Overwatch 2, also remained strong in fifth place.

Singer BIBI’s latest single, “Bam Yang Gang,” released Feb. 13, landed No. 2 on the chart, one place higher than it did the previous week. The song saw surprisingly good scores in Korea, topping Melon’s daily, weekly and Top 100 real-time charts and earning PAK status as of Feb. 26, making it the singer’s first song to reach such status. PAK, which stands for “Perfect all-kill,” is awarded to songs that have topped Korea’s major daily and real-time streaming charts, including Melon’s Daily and Top 100, Genie’s Top 100 (Daily) and Top 100 (Realtime) and more. “Bam Yang Gang” was produced by singer-songwriter Chang Ki-ha.

Jung Kook’s “Standing Next to You” (2023) took third place, followed by rookie boy band TWS’s debut song, “plot twist,” in sixth place — a step higher than the previous week — and singer-songwriter IU’s prerelease track “Love wins all” in seventh place.

The explicit version of Jung Kook’s “Seven” (2023) landed No. 8, while aespa’s “Drama” (2023) and (G)I-DLE’s “Super Lady” finished in ninth and tenth place, respectively.

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.
