The new year means reflecting on the old and thinking ahead to the future. For Seoulbeats’ 2022 End-of-the-Year Review, I added my thoughts to our debuts, mini albums, and full-length albums discussions. And whenever there’s a list, a playlist must follow. Although our K-pop tastes and 2022 rankings may differ, I hope you enjoy this look into the music and groups that defined the past year (with “Ditto” thrown in there).
