Welcome to the Weekly KPOP Chart post for the 2nd Week of December 2022. There is a bit more than usual to cover today, so I am going to get right to it. Keep on reading to see the winner of this past week on the Weekly KPOP Charts!
Plan for the rest of 2022
2022 has been a very full on and over-whelming year for me, especially the last few weeks. And I am looking forward to having a bit of a break.
Unfortunately, this means there will be no reviews for any new releases for the rest of the year. Any major release will be reviewed upon my return in early 2023. However, this doesn’t mean I will stop posting altogether. I have scheduled a bunch of song and album reviews whilst I am away, so you will still see new reviews for songs and albums that have been released for some time that I haven’t reviewed just yet.
This also means that this will be the final Weekly KPOP Charts that will be posted in 2022. We still have the 3rd and 4th weeks of December left in the 2022, and I will be posting the Weekly KPOP Charts for those weeks when I am back in 2023.
Reminder for the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards
A reminder that you can still vote in the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards as the voting page will not close until 11:59PM AEDT 6 January 2023! New leaders have emerged in a range of different categories just in the last week alone – all because of fan voting. At the time of voting, there is just under 2.5k votes already casted. So get voting to make sure your vote counts!
Recap & New releases of the Week
I made a bit of an effort to review some new releases this week. And when I say an effort, I mean two reviews. One of them will be posted tomorrow, while the other (NCT DREAM’s Candy) was posted on Friday. MINHO’s Chase, THE BOYZ’s All About You, P1Harmony’s Doom Du Doom and Xdinary Heroes’ Hair Cut were also reviewed this week. On the album review front, I posted the album reviews for Kim Jae Hwan and CHUNG HA‘s album releases from earlier on in the year.
Other releases from the week includes:
- hate my home – polar
- Let me out – Lee Jinsol
- companion – SEOWOONYUL
- Gift For You – WEi
- Beautiful Christmas – Red Velvet & aespa
- Celebrate – Super Junior
- too late – Chunji (Teen Top)
- Trick or Treat – PIXY
- HUGS – BRANDNEW MUSIC
- SNOW SNOW SNOW – BRANDNEW MUSIC
This week’s throwback song is ASTRO’s Call Out. I stumbled across ASTRO’s performances of Call Out at their concerts on YouTube and they are so much fun. The song is super catchy, as well! The continuous encore of the final section of the song during the concert performances was hilarious!
Non-Korean Release of the Week
This week’s non-Korean release of the week is FNC Artists’ Sing Along. It ranks in the 2nd position this past week. It is a super fun and catchy song that was released in Japan two weeks ago as part of the FNC KINGDOM concert (FNC Entertainment’s company concert) that will be occurring in Japan some time in the remainder of this year. The lineup of Sing Along includes representatives of FT ISLAND, CN BLUE, SF9, N.Flying, Cherry Bullet, P1Harmony and (I believe) JUNG HAE IN.
Congratulations to Xdinary Heroes for topping the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 2nd Week of December 2022 with Hair Cut. For more of the charts, keep on reading.
