Welcome back to the final post from the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards series. In this post, the official winners of the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards are officially announced. If you remember back correctly, majority of the winners were all decided by YOU!
Majority of the categories were determined purely by fan votes gather backed in December/January – over 10,000 people participated in the fan voting. Thank you all for making this a widely successful project, once again!
Only a small portion of the categories were determined me by only (i.e. the blog related categories and Best Side Track of 2022). As for Best Overall Song and Best Overall Artist of 2022, both of us decided the winners for the two categories, via a 50% split of fan votes and of my Weekly KPOP Charts that I post on a weekly basis.
For information regarding eligibility, please refer back to the first post in the series.
With the introduction out of the way and without further delays (as you have waited long enough), I present to you the winners of the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards.
