Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. My name is Park Bom and I am your chief flight attendant. On behalf of Captain @Slice of Life and co-pilots @vague and @Love Deluxe, it is my pleasure to welcome you aboard flight number 2021 of KSOTY Airlines bound for Kwangya.

On this long-haul flight, we will be deciding what is the best K-Pop song of 2021.

So make sure your seat belts are correctly fastened, find your most comfortable fighting sitting position, and enjoy the show.

This is...

That's right, oppa-deul and unnies. It's KSOTY season once again! And I can already smell the mess...

So first things first: What exactly is the K-Pop Song of the Year (#KSOTY2021) Rate?

Well, it is a yearly rate where the people of the K-Popjustice subforum gather and rate 100 K-Pop songs released this year and decide which one is The Best K-Pop Song of the Year 2021. Pretty simple, right? To get the full picture, please read the next six posts after this one.

Alright, I've said enough. Our flight is ready for departure. Let's go!

From SUPERTRASH... to SUPERSARANG... to SUPERSALVATION... to SUPER별 (SUPERBYEOL)... to SUPERUPGRADE.

What is a SUPERUPGRADE SONG? It's a song, released in 2021 of course, that you love but didn't do that well on the K-Popjustice Charts and therefore isn't included in our initial list of songs to be rated. It can be any song as long as you love it. No other qualifiers.

By becoming SUPERUPGRADE SONGS, they will be included in the songs we will be rating.

But here's the catch: we only have space for forty SUPERUPGRADE SONGS. Because not every song deserves an upgrade.

There will be four rounds of SUPERUPGRADE. The first 10 people to complete the missions in a round shall be entitled to submit one (1) SUPERUPGRADE SONG. And every round will happen spontaneously so you better click that "WATCH THREAD" button to not miss any updates. For the first two rounds, only the 70 people who voted during the #KSOTY2020 Rate can participate. The third and fourth round will be open to all.

So for the first round, here are the mechanics:
1. Like the opening post.
2. Name one (1) of the ten (10) oldest airlines still operating around the world. Also state their founding dates and the countries where they are based. No repetitions of answers allowed. You cannot copy an already entered answer. PLEASE POST YOUR ANSWERS IN THIS THREAD.

First round will close when all 10 slots are filled. I will post and tag the 10 people who successfully won the round. They will need to submit their SUPERUPGRADE SONGS before January 2, 2022, 23:59 GMT.

The first round starts now.

SPREADSHEET TEMPLATE

rules.png

1. Rate all the songs from 0 to 10. You can use the following decimals if you want to be very precise with your scoring: .25, .50 & .75. All other decimals are not allowed.

2. You may give one song - and just one - your coveted score of 11.

3. Commentary is not mandatory but is very welcome. I love commentary! Bury me in commentary, unnies!

4. You must rate every song. No exceptions.

5. Please please please submit your scores in the order I list them. It makes everything easier for everyone.

6. You may change only one score after you submit your votes. Once your scores are in, they're locked. If you reconsider, you may have one change on one single song. This is to cut down on spreadsheet errors and miscommunication, so please think things over before you send!

7. Absolutely no trolling allowed. Trust me, I know what trolling looks like and I will not hesitate to publicly shame you for being a twat, I mean, troll. Trolling does not achieve anything except be an annoyance so please do not engage in such activity.

8. To combat trolling more effectively, you must give commentary to any song you scored below a 4.00. I will further examine the commentary if it is acceptable.

9. There is no number 9. Scroll down and pretend that it exists.

10. Accept Shaman Unnie as the Goddess of Air.​
