Happy New Year!
As we look forward to 2022, this post is about looking back. I'm here to deliver my biggest project yet- ranking 50 Korean singles of 2021!
Before I kick things off, I have some things to say. First, notice that the title says 50 KOREAN singles. That means a single of any genre (i.e. K-Pop, Hip-Hop, Ballad, etc.) promoted to the Korean music market was counted for this list.
Songs like BTS' Butter wasn't counted since it was promoted to the English music market.
Also, I didn't count any singles that promoted anything other than the artists themselves. In addition, these singles must have accompanying music videos. The context of the music videos also factored into my ranking process.
Lastly, I gathered tracks from Jan. 1, 2021 - Dec. 31, 2021
I haven't listened to all the singles, so this list isn't final. Thus, future updates might happen in the future, so I'll make sure to let you guys know.
With all that out of the way, it's time to move on to my rankings! Enjoy!
