Welcome to the Weekly KPOP Chart post for the 3rd and 4th weeks of December 2022 – the period of the 18th to the 31st of December 2022. Due to the holiday break over Christmas and New Years (I didn’t really get a chance to listen to enough music to cover one week), I have decided to merge the two weeks together just like a couple of weeks ago.
Speaking about holiday breaks, I hope everyone who managed to get some time to themselves over the last few weeks did enjoy their break. Anyhow, as I have two Weekly KPOP Charts post to publish today, I am going to get right into it. Let’s go!
2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards voting has closed
Just a quick note that the voting page for the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards have now closed, and I will start counting the votes for Best Song and Artist of 2022 over the next few weeks. Thank you for all who voted and help determine the winners of each category. It was indeed a very tight race in some categories, even at the very end.
Unfortunately, it does look like an end of January date to announce winners will not be possible at this time (I am on break again for a week later this month), so keep your eyes out for an announcement in February.
Recap & New releases of the Week
Despite being on break, I had pre-written a bunch of reviews and album reviews to post over that period (just to keep the blog alive). The following reviews were posted between 18 and 31 December 2022.
The following releases were released during the period I was away and have been entered into the Weekly KPOP Charts system:

Non-Korean Release of the Week
The non-Korean release for the final two weeks of 2022 is, once again, FNC Artists’ Sing Along. It ranks in the 16th position. For those who may not have missed the blurb I gave tabout the song in the last Weekly KPOP Charts post, here it is again. Sing Along is a super fun and catchy song that was released in Japan as part of the FNC KINGDOM concert (FNC Entertainment’s company concert) that occurred in Japan at the end of the 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 BoA, the Queen of KPOP, for topping the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 3rd and 4th Weeks of December 2022 with her newest single, Forgive Me. I have yet to review Forgive Me, but I will definitely be reviewing the song in the next coming weeks! For more of the charts, keep on reading.
