Soompi’s K-Pop Music Chart 2023, January Week 1

Happy New Year, Soompi readers!

Two new songs took over the top three for the first Soompi Music Chart of 2023.

Debuting at No. 1 is NCT DREAM’s “Candy,” the title track from their winter special mini album. A remake of H.O.T.’s hit song released in 1996, “Candy” is reinterpreted with a refreshing and hip arrangement showcasing NCT DREAM’s own color added to the original song’s cheerful melody. Congratulations to NCT DREAM!

Holding steady at No. 2 is LE SSERAFIM’s former No. 1 song “ANTIFRAGILE,” marking its ninth week in the top two of the chart.

Debuting at No. 3 is rookie group NewJeans’s “Ditto.” A pre-released track from NewJeans’ single album “OMG,” “Ditto” is a song with a charming mesh of a warm and cozy choir pad sound together with a classic old school drum break.
