Top K-Pop of the Week: ENHYPEN, aespa, ZEROBASEONE, Ryu Su Jeong, Sorn & More – Vote!

From groups like aespa, ENHYPEN and ZEROBASEONE to solo stars like MARK, Sorn, Hongseok, Ryu Sujeong and Yein, which new song gets your vote?

Every week, the Korean music scene delivers outstanding songs across various genres and styles, and the past week was no exception, with a heavy-hitting selection of hits with global potential, satisfyingly nostalgic duets and some of 2024’s most promising new artists.

Internationally adored groups like aespa and ENHYPEN both dropped new singles to tide their ravenous fanbases over while they await their next full-length projects. Meanwhile, K-pop fans were treated to duets with special meanings as Lovelyz members Ryu Sujeong and Yein teamed up for a collaboration (co-produced and written by Hot 100 artist XYLØ, nonetheless) while Sorn and Hongseok also duetted for a new track showing an ongoing bond even after both departed their former label, Cube Entertainment. Alongside newcomers like DXMON and Yungin, embracing a range of unique genres and concepts to connect with audiences, there’s also K-pop sensations ZEROBASEONE and their new single “Feel the POP” that pairs perfectly with the warming weather.

As the K-pop industry moves at a rapid pace, it’s important to pause and appreciate the innovation and diversity it offers across its different acts. Last week, Billboard readers chose Stray Kids’ “Lose My Breath” as their top K-pop pick of the week but fans of Lim Young Woong, Yook Sungjae, BM and D.O all came through with major support.
