Acclaimed indie singer, Younha, is back with a new digital single entitled It’s Not Like That.
Without any promotion or even an MV, the song is currently enjoying a good run on digital charts. It topped several daily charts like Soribada and Bugs, and has been firmly seated on Instiz in third position these past few days.
It is quite an achievement given the absence of any kind of promotion (except maybe her own radio show) especially since Infinite made a joint comeback with Man in Love and grabbed most of the attention while also topping every real-time charts for a handful of hours. The Woolim Entertainment talented dance group was however unable to maintain its streak overnight. Infinite now sits in Instiz fourth position, but is still battling for first place on a few charts.
