The Kpopalypse 2022 end-of-year survey – THE RESULTS!

Welcome to the results of the Kpopalypse 2022 end of year survey!  Read on for the trufax!

Thanks to all readers who participated in the traditional end of year survey content!  Here are your results!

Question 1: What is your favourite k-pop song for 2022?

If the Kpopalypse’s favourite songs of 2022 list was a reader choice list, here’s what the results would have been! IVE’s “Love Dive” was the clear winner, collecting far more votes than any other song for 2022!

The colours in this chart and all the below charts show how each reader choice matches up to the Kpopalypse choices.

  • Pink = #1 best
  • Green = somewhere in the top 30
  • Blue = honourable mention
  • White = not in any list
  • Orange = dishonourable mention
  • Red = somewhere in the bottom 30

Question 2: What is your least favourite k-pop song for 2022?

Here’s how the Kpopalypse 30 worst songs of 2022 would have looked if they were reader picks! NMIXX’s confused-sounding “O.O” was the clear winner in this category.

Question 3: What song will be #1 on Kpopalypse’s favourites list for 2022?

Readers suspected that IVE might have a big year, and they were right! Quite a few people did pick 2022’s correct answer, Girls2000’s “Bad Girlfriend“, if you got it right please take a moment to feel appropriately smug and self-satisfied!

Question 4: What song will be #1 on Kpopalypse worst of 2022 list?

Readers though, with some justification, that I migth have picked Yooa’s “Selfish” as the worst song of 2022, but incredibly there were songs even worse than this! Nevertheless, readers did a fairly accurate job of determining Kpopalypse taste in 2022!

Question 5: What completely amazing k-pop track that kicked ass this year will Kpopalypse take a big fat dump on for no clear reason?

Here’s the list of songs that you liked the most, that you also thought I might’ve hated the most! While the #1 and #2 were very accurate picks here, for the most part, I didn’t actually dunk that hard on most of your favourite songs – rejoice!

Question 6: What total waste of time trash k-pop song will be riding high on Kpopalypse’s favourites list just to annoy you?

(G)I-dle’s “Tomboy” wasn’t quite good enough to actually make it onto a Kpopalyspe list, but it sure made it onto your list of the song that you thought I was most likely to like even though you hated it!

Also special mention to Le Sserafim’s “Antifragile” and IVE’s “Love Dive” for being “the most divisive” songs, they make it onto every single one of your lists!

Question 7: If you have requests for the “clearing house” post for songs that missed roundups, put them here!

Thanks for your selections! Many of them made it into the 2022 clearing house roundup post! Earring’s “Machina” was the most popular pick by readers that also met eligibility requirements!

Questions 8: If you have anything else to say, you could put it here if you wanted. Or if not, then don’t. Have a great Christmas and New Year, caonima!

Some of you had quite a bit to say! Some responses, and my replies:

After guessing your 2nd favourite song 2 years in a row and finally getting it right last year with your favourite, I have absolutely no idea what it’s going to be this year. Looking forward to nugus outperforming some big names and annoying everyone!

Hopefully 2022’s lists met required standards!

i’ve been reading ur blog for 6 years and recently i’ve been falling out of love with k-pop? like literally my only connection to k-pop now basically is with ur blog LMFAO. i just wanna say thank u for changing my music taste – i feel like before reading ur blog my taste was very basic and boring and now i feel like its a lot more eclectic & i like a lot of the same genres as you in pop (synth, electro, dream/shoegaze) so… yeah.

Glad I could help! Of course even if your music taste turned out completely differently, I’m still thankful that I broadened your horizons a little! Thanks for continuing to read even if you think the majority of k-pop now sucks dicks!

My country just elected a new Prime Minister despite of the on going political turmoil, and I also try to write kpop fanfic online, so my life is a mess. But every week I look forward to your insightful posts, even your Nugu Alerts, so I hope 2023 will have more music that you would like, and I will be reading every single post you make, that’s a promise!

Thank you for your support!

Every day I pray for JYP to get it together and give NMIXX an actually good song

Me too. Actually I thought “Cool” was acceptable, but of course they didn’t spend the big money on that one.

Why are you so gay, Kpopalypse & why is it solely for Wonho?

This isn’t true – I’m still thinking about the purple-haired guy from N.tic.

Is there any way you can post more content like TheBiasList? Your quality is much better overall but the quantity is not there. Maybe another kind of weekly rankings or reviews?

Probably not, I really don’t like reviewing songs more than I have to. My end of year reviews are really mainly for fun and to make lists for myself, and roundup is mainly just to shut people up so they stop asking my opinion on each new song that comes out, and also to de-emphasise my own opinion by writing thoughtlessly. I’m not actually trying to propogate my opinion or be a serious reviewer or whatever, and I find it really hard to motivate myself to write song reviews at all. It’s just not that interesting. Having said that, if I can think of good excuses to write more stuff like this I will, but those excuses have to be a lot better than “because people will like it” or “because it will get clicks”.

I’ve been reading your blog for 10 years now and the quality has not dipped once, you’re still the best kpop blog on the Internet ・・、 sending love to you ・・、

Thank you!

I love your blog so much. It’s great to see some healthy dose of cynicism and common sense in the Kpop community. I also read your reviews to learn more about music theory. Thank you so much for doing this for free x

No problem! All writing on this site will continue to be ad-free always! For those who feel the desperate need to support me financially, you can do so and the support is appreciated (most of that money will be going to art commissions and book design at the moment, which are not cheap) but on the other hand I never want caonimas to feel pressured to support me in this way. I understand that many of you are broke and that’s okay, I will always give you as much free content as possible! Just the fact that people bother to read at all is enough.

Speak english pls, ur opinions sound AI generated.

It’s crazy how I’ve been reading your blog for 8 years now. I started in junior high (yea, i know), and I’m finishing uni this year. I’ve genuinely learned so much about music (I’m probably one of the 5 people reading your music theory posts). Thank you and merry Christmas!

Thank you!

You don’t shit enough on Asianjunkie. I know you changed (this is not meant negative or positive, it is natural that people change), but Asianjunkie still behaves like a dumb brat. pls, More Asianjunkie shitpostings and have a nice christmas & New Year.

I will take this feedback on board, thank you!

Today is my first day in my new job, and though it was busy and exhausting, I’m enjoying it so far. Hopefully I can survive everything about this job!

I’ve also been recently prescribed with eyeglasses, with I thought would be cool back when I was a kid (because I wanted to look like a genius lol), but now I find very troublesome. Kinda regretting why I didn’t take care of my eyes enough to avoid this, but it is what it is now, so I have to deal with it. To everyone, please avoid rubbing your eyes.

Cheers to a better 2023!

I just thought I’d better spread this OH&S announcement.

i only got into kpop properly this year and reading your blog has helped me both get up to speed on the industry’s bs and also exposed me to some fantastic songs. Thanks oppar!

Glad to help!

“I’ve decided that my end of year reviews for certain overbloated genre hopping confused-ass pieces of music are going to conform to exactly the same arrangement standards as the songs themselves. (so in other words, not much change from usual review style I guess)”

YES! We look forward to you dunking on our faves and introducing us to some great songs.

I am glad you enjoyed the songs. I have been listening to music my whole life and I love it.
