After debuting at No. 4, K.Will's new autumn single, "You Don't Know Love," climbs three places to No. 1 on this week's Gaon chart. It's the third No. 1 single of his career, and first since last year's "I Need You."
Right behind K.Will is K-diva, Park Ji Yoon, who arrives at an impressive No. 2 with her comeback single, "Mr. Lee." The Primary-produced track has been doing extremely well for the songstress, and is in contention to top next week's chart.
IU's "The Red Shoes" follows at No. 3, while last week's No. 1, SHINee's "Everybody," is at No. 4. We initially expected a bigger drop for "Everybody," but the dubstep stomper has actually managed to hold steady on the digital charts since SHINee's multiple music program wins.
T-ara's "No. 9" is at No. 7 this week, down two spots from last week. It's a solid showing for the troubled girl group, who have defied their critics with the success and longevity of the dance-pop smash.
Ladies' Code's "Pretty Pretty" makes an unexpected jump this week, rising 7 spots to No. 26. Between this and "Bad Girl," Ladies' Code has had an incredible run on the charts for a rookie group.
As we predicted, Nine Muses' "Gun" has plummeted, falling 18 spots to No. 34. Speaking of sliding down the charts, Kahi's "It's Me" is down to No. 79 in its third week -- by next week, it could be out of the top 100 all together.
Check out this week's key K-pop hits, below!
No. 1. K.Will - You Don't Know Love
No. 2. Park Ji Yoon - Mr. Lee feat. San E
No. 7. T-ara - No. 9

Beyoncé has released Black Is King, and as usual, her work is subtly shifting the world and inspiring millions.

Black Is King is rooted in Black history. "History is your future," Beyoncé says prophetically toward the beginning. "One day you will meet yourself back where you started, but stronger." The film is studded with references to African history, portraying the lives of African royalty.

Ellen DeGeneres' apology comes as allegations of sexual misconduct are being leveled against the show's top executives.
It seems that every week there's a new story that casts Ellen DeGeneres in an unflattering light.
It started with her problematic friendship with George W. Bush, and has more recently included reports of her cruelty toward strangers, the way her show's staff was left feeling abandoned during the lockdown, and the generally toxic work environment that current and former crew members have reported.
