Annyeong haseyo, oppa-deul and unnies!

Welcome back to another edition of our...


Happy new year, unnies! I hope you're having a wonderful start of 2023!

Thankfully, January 2023 is proving to be, well, not as boring as December 2022 when it comes to K-Pop releases. We've had comebacks from Twice, NewJeans, GOT the beat, cignature, Yerin Baek and a lot more. And we're getting even more comebacks in the next few days/weeks!

But honestly, I have not been listening that much to new K-Pop music lately because of my #KSOTY2022 and #KSOTY2012 Rate duties (#promo). So I would really appreciate all the recommendations you can offer!

Let's get it!


1. Send a PM that contains a ballot of your 10 favourite songs and/or 3 to 10 favourite albums to @Slice of Life. Kindly rank these songs and albums too.
2. The songs and albums you're voting for should be what you've been listening to in the past month.
3. You cannot vote for songs and albums released after the month we are voting for.
4. The songs can be singles, album tracks, or whatever as long as it is released by a K-Pop artist in whatever language. Specify whether you're voting for the original, remix, or Japanese/Chinese/English/etc version of a song since they are counted separately.
5. You can only vote for songs released by non-K-Pop artists if it features a K-Pop artist (e.g. Lady Gaga's Sour Candy which features BLACKPINK).
6. The albums can be full length, mini album, or single album as long as it includes a minimum of three songs that are not instrumentals, remixes, intros, outros, and interludes. A repackage album is considered a different album if it contains at least three new songs (e.g. LOOΠΔ's [X X] is considered a different album from [+ +]).
7. Your favourite song/album gets 10 points, scaling all the way down to 1 point.
8. The total points earned builds the chart.
9. Ties are broken by number of voters, then by quality of votes received, and are left as a tie if we still can't break parity.
10. Commentary is highly appreciated but not mandatory.
11. An album or song must earn at least 10 points and must be voted by a minimum of two voters to chart.
12. Your ballot cannot be made up of more than 50% of songs and albums of just one artist.
13. The top five songs each month make the 2023 K-Pop Song of the Year Rate.
14. Accept Shaman Unnie as the one true Kween of Pop.​

Deadline of ballots is on February 2, Thursday, 23:59 GMT.

PMs will be sent to potential voters five days before the deadline to remind/threaten everyone to vote. Potential voters will be tagged three days and one day before the deadline too.

I’m gonna need everyone who is even remotely likely to vote tor TXT to fucking wait to send their ballots cause they are coming back on the 27th and the title track sounds like a massive bop. Pleek!!! It’s not my fault they keep releasing so late every time.

And this b-side will definitely be getting a vote from me too:
