Welcome to the Weekly KPOP Charts and the recap of the past week, the 3rd Week of December 2021. This also doubles up as the final Weekly KPOP Chart post that I will be posting this year. There will be a 4th and 5th Week of December 2021 Weekly KPOP Charts, but they will be posted in 2022 once I am back from Christmas break.
There will also be changes to the reviews for the remainder of the year. From tomorrow, I will be posting a bunch of reviews that have been pre-written and scheduled ahead of time for the remainder of the year and for the first few days of the new year. I will not be writing any review of any new releases between the start of this weekend to 2nd Jan 2022. Any new releases from between now and then (for example Kim Jae Hwan, BamBam, Purple Kiss etc.) will reviewed once I am back from break.
So with that, I want to wish you all Happy Holidays and New Year, and can’t wait to see what what KPOP has in store for us in 2022!
Also a quick reminder that the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Awards voting survey closes on 31st December 2021, 11:59 PM AEDT. If you have not voted yet, make sure you vote and support your favourite artists, performances and songs from 2021! Click here to be taken to the voting page.
