SISTAR have hung onto the No. 1 spot for a second week with their latest single, "Touch Your Body." The song is still sitting comfortably at No. 1 on the Melon digital music chart, too, so we could potentially see the quartet spend a third week at the top of the Gaon chart. If that happens, then "Touch My Body" will become the longest-running No. 1 in almost two years.

Overall, "Touch My Body" is SISTAR's fifth No. 1 as a full group, and their 11th if you include their subunit, solos, and collaborations. It's this kind of success that's helped them become Korea's second biggest girl group -- after Girls' Generation, of course.

In second place is Block B's "Her," which climbs one spot to No. 2 this week. It's the highest-charting song of Block B's career, and its success is pretty impressive by boy band standards. Male artists generally tend to fare better with physical album sales, while the digital market is dominated by girl groups and OST ballads.

HyunA's racy "Red" debuts at a solid No. 3, matching the position of her signature hit, "Bubble Pop!," but failing to reach the No. 1 and No. 2 peak of both "Ice Cream" and "Change."

INFINITE's flawless "Back" slips two spots to No. 4, followed by Girl's Day's "Darling" at No. 5.

JYJ's new single "Back Seat" debuts at No. 6, while all the songs from their latest album, Just Us, are scattered throughout the rest of the top 100.

Further down, Wonder Girls' Yenny, who now goes by the bizarre and confusing name of HA:TFELT, enters at a respectable No. 16 with her first solo single, "Ain't Nobody." The position pales in comparison to her ex-bandmate Sunmi, but is relatively decent by solo female standards, putting her on par with T-ara's Jiyeon and Hyomin.

The new HIGH4 single with Lim Kim, "A Little Close," enters at No. 29, while Sunny Hill's "Once In Summer" arrives at No. 47 to become their lowest-charting single ever.

Speaking of flops, BESTie's "Hot Baby" debuts at a disappointing No. 53. Although this matches "Thank U Very Much" as their highest-charting single, it's still a let down for the group, who should be doing much better at this point.

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

No. 1. SISTAR - Touch My Body

No. 3. HyunA - Red

No. 4. INFINITE - Back

No. 6. JYJ - Back Seat

No. 16. HA:TFELT - Ain't Nobody

No. 53. BESTie - Hot Baby

After being blocked from hitting No. 1 by Girls' Generation last week, 2NE1's finally come back home to the top of the charts! Their new single, "Come Back Home," becomes the 12th No. 1 of the group's career this week (14th if you include Park Bom's solo hits).

If that isn't impressive enough, 2NE1 also has a total of 9 songs in the top twenty this week!

Last week's chart-topper, Girls' Generation's "Mr.Mr," falls to No. 4, while Soyou and Junggigo's unstoppable "Some" bounces back to No. 2 (and could possibly reach No. 1 again next week).

CNBLUE's "Can't Stop" slips to No. 5, while balladeer Lyn's debuts at No. 7 with "Miss You... Crying."

Rookie girl group 1PS makes an impressive debut with "Because I'm Your Girl," which rockets in at No. 29, while BESTie's "Thank U Very Much" jumps 65 places to No. 53. That might not sound like much, but it is -- going top thirty with a first single is huge for an unknown rookie group like 1PS, while BESTie's boost makes "Thank U Very Much" their highest-charting song to date, and their first to crack the top 100 since "Pit-a-Pat."

Speaking of rookie girl groups, STELLAR's "Marionette" is still in the top 100 after exactly one month, sitting at No. 77 this week. Not bad!

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

No. 1. 2NE1 - Come Back Home

No. 5. CNBLUE - Can't Stop

No. 7. Lyn - Miss you... Crying

No. 29. 1PS - Because I'm Your Girl

No. 53. BESTie - Thank U Very Much

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. To celebrate, we've listed some of the most essential cosmetic products to help you make your Euphoria-inspired makeup dreams come true—no drugs required.
