After four long years, Girl's Day have finally scored their first No. 1 single on the Gaon chart. Their adorable new single, "Darling," just debuted at the top, pushing aside last week's winner, Eunji and Huh Gak's "Break Up To Make Up," down to No. 4.

It's hard to believe that Girl's Day are now only topping the singles chart considering their current popularity. They previously peaked at No. 5 with "Twinkle Twinkle" in 2011 and then again with last year's "Female President," while January's "Something" narrowly missed the pole position at No. 2.

Rapper Beenzino debuts at No. 6 with the funky "How Do I Look," while boy band B1A4 enter at No. 7 with "SOLO DAY."

Block B's new pre-release single "Jackpot" debuts at No. 10, which is quite impressive considering that the song has been floating around online for months now. It was originally due for release in April, and even had its official music video released at the time, but was postponed at the last minute due to the Sewol ferry disaster. It was just last week that it officially went on sale as a warm up for the band's new album, HER.

Taking a huge tumble this week is f(x), whose edgy new single "Red Light" plunges from No. 2 to No. 12. It's already doing poorly on real-time digital charts compared to their past releases, while the group's promotional schedule was just wiped clean after the mysterious disappearance of member Sulli, who is supposedly too ill to perform.

Super Junior M soloist Henry debuts at No. 17 with "Fantastic," which is now his highest-charting solo single to date.

Meanwhile, rookie girl group MAMAMOO show some serious staying power with "Mr. Ambiguous," which rises one spot to No. 24.

Last but not least is T-ara's sexy goddess Hyomin, who falls to No. 40 with "Nice Body" after just three weeks. At this point, the song is performing a little worse than Jiyeon's "1min1sec" did.

Check out this week's new K-pop hits below.

No. 1. Girl's Day - Darling

No. 6. Beenzino - How Do I Look

No. 7. B1A4 - SOLO DAY

No. 10. Block B - Jackpot

No. 17. Henry - Fantastic

It's been a long hard road for B.A.P, but the talented boy band has finally earned some much-deserved recognition this week with their first ever top ten single on Korea's official Gaon chart.

Their latest tune, "1004 (Angel)," enters at No. 9 this week, beating their previous career best of No. 15 for "Rain Sound." Considering that "1004 (Angel)" has B.A.P adopting a more radio-friendly sound compared to their previous hip-hop, rock, and experimental singles, it's no big shock to see that this is the one to become their first top ten. Additionally, the boys also won their first music program award last night on Show Champion, further adding to their already successful comeback.

Over at the top of the chart, Idina Menzel's unstoppable "Let It Go" spends a second week at No. 1, while SISTAR's Soyu and Geeks' JungGiGo's new collaboration single, "Some," enters at No. 3.

Ga-In's "Fxxk U" slips from 3-6 this week, while her other comeback track, "Truth or Dare," makes its debut at No. 8 -- giving the Brown Eyed Girls' songstress two top ten singles at once.

AOA's surprise hit, "Miniskirt," is down three spots to No. 14, followed by B1A4's "Lonely" at No. 15, and SPICA's "You Don't Love Me" at No. 16.

Rainbow Blaxx's "Cha Cha" rises one spot to No. 24, while Lee Min Woo's "Taxi" debuts at No. 31, followed closely by Rain's new digital single, "I Love You," at No. 32.

Down at the lower end of the chart, GP Basic's new single "Pika Burnjuck" arrives No. 183.

No. 3. Soyu & JunGiGo - Some

No. 8. Ga-In - Truth or Dare

No. 9. B.A.P - 1004 (Angel)

This Haunts Me: "Jen from Appleton" and the Epic Bath and Body Works Rant

Sometimes you've just got to get yourself that Winter Candy Apple and Iced Gingerbread.

I hope Jen from Appleton, Wisconsin is doing well these days.

As for Angela, the star of the best Bath & Body Works rant of all time (and there are surprisingly many on YouTube), I hope she's living a Winter Candy Apple-scented life to the fullest.

In 2012, the aspiring vlogger posted a rant about her dire mission to acquire two coveted candles from Bath & Body Works: Winter Candy Apple and Iced Gingerbread. The outstanding 11-minute video recounts her harrowing journey to the store in APPLETON, WISCONSIN (it's very important the store is called out for their heinous treatment of Angela).

After the video was discovered and spread across Tumblr, it was recognized as a cultural masterpiece of our time, a treatise on the frailty of the human condition and our undying perseverance to end our own suffering at any cost.

Lady Gaga x Oreo and Other Odd Celebrity Food Collaborations

It's an unprecedented time for brand deals and nonsensical collaborations

I'm convinced that the Supreme Oreos that terrorized the internet (and which I haven't stopped thinking about since) were the cultural reset.

Released in February 2020, right as everything started to go wrong, these bright red Supreme Oreos were met with equally visceral confusion and anticipation. Despite many on the internet claiming that Supreme and Oreo had gone too far, the 3-pack of Oreos inevitably sold out in minutes online.

But the chaos didn't end here. Bidding sites were on fire, with one auction reaching almost $92,000 before being taken down. And apparently, they just tasted like regular Oreos.

It seems Oreo have not learned their lesson. Just announced: their collaboration with Lady Gaga

Everything You Need for "Euphoria" -Inspired Makeup Looks

Life is short, go for a bold eye like Jules.

Regardless of how you felt about the hit HBO teen drama Euphoria, you have to admit the looks in the show are pretty iconic.

From Rue's grungy over-sized aesthetic to Jules' femme futuristic looks, there are plenty of outfits shown throughout the series to inspire you to reinvent your whole wardrobe. Not to mention the makeup looks, which are so unique and striking as to have inspired hundreds of Halloween costumes last year. But why reserve a neon eye shadow or sequin eyelid look for Halloween when you can channel your inner Maddie or Jules all year long?

Euphoria Season 2 may be a few months away, but HBO is releasing two special episodes much sooner. The first of these specials, "Trouble Don't Last Always," focuses on Rue (played by Zendaya) and just dropped on HBO Max.
