South Korean summer beat leads Japan Billboard (week 19/52) Japan Music charts review

We no longer have a Japanese Answer to the music Charts. The Naniwa Boys have fallen from the leader position last week to the 6th position.

The lead song "Tamed-Dashed" of the 7-member multinational Kpop boy group ENHYPEN's 2nd Japanese single "DIMENSION: Senkou" recorded the first single with sales of 386,142 in the first week.

ENHYPEN (엔하이픈) 'Tamed-Dashed'

A little of the lyrics:

"That flash of desire that fascinated me

Dreams are beautiful and ugly

just change your look

Oh tangled

The dilemma of choice in the dimension

to step on

i'm scared

I hate "to be or not"

Like hot summer (na, na, na)

First run (na, na, na)”

Personal Japan billboard Review:

Both the South Korean and the Japanese versions of the song, make a very good Summer. However, it also shows a dark side. The Sun burn into ashes like a vampire, the very old clothes like a zombie, powers to stop a ball in the air.

Well in a small way, we can relate to that!

In the summer if you don’t get sun cream you are more likely to get a Sun burn. And vampires are typical know to be isolated from Society, like we all are as we slowly going back to normal.

The old clothes we did a lot of online shopping’s but how much clothes did we bought? So, we stayed at home with old clothes even if it had holes in it because none was around to see it. Meaning You will be leaving home with broken and old clothes to parties and events that usually when you get Drunk or suffer from hangover, we all look like zombies.

I was thinking for a very long time what the powers, or wizard style meant, and I though its not in the actions but in the mental sanity, affected by the pandemic. In a way the powers and the face zoom-in, “who can do anything” mentality is inside your head. You can do anything you want and being able to be with friends again and going to the beach reflects exactly that. What do you think?

Do you agree with my vision?

Who are ENHYPEN (엔하이픈)?

Like the Japanese groups – J01, INI and OWV – The ENHYPEN are the result of a TV show that sought talent in South Korea. 7 Kpop group members of the survival show I-LAND under BE: LIFT Lab, a joint label created by HYBE and CJ E&M Entertainment. The group consists of Heeseung, Jay, Jake, Sunghoon, Sunoo, Jungwon, and Ni-ki. ENHYPEN is a mix of an en dash and a hyphen that connects different words to create new meaning, members of ENHYPEN will connect, discover each other, and grow together.








Who are on the second and third position that might steal the throne?

On the second and third position, we have 2 new songs on the billboard as well, which make them my highlight this week.

2nd position

Mixed nuts ( ミックスナッツ) -Official Hige Dandism ( Official髭男dism)

The First appearance was two weeks ago, in the position 6. By winning the leader position in download and streaming, they can keep company to the billboard leaders for 3 weeks now. Aren’t they sweet?

 Official Hige Dandism's "Mixed Nuts", which ranked second overall for three consecutive weeks, increased from 17,487 DL last week to 19,062 DL this week and ranked first, and streaming increased from 8,587,467 last week to 9,145,511 this week. It became the 1st place, and these 2 indicators are the driving force to maintain the 2nd place overall.

The band was formed in 2012. Their first album was released in 2015 making their debut that same year. In April 2018, he made his major debut with Major 1st Single "No Doubt".

With music rooted in various genres, including black music, it continues to gain support from all generations.
