  1. HAPPY SLICÉMAS, OPPA-DEUL AND UNNIES.

    Yes, it's that time of the year again.

    It's the...

    Started in 2016 by @Squashua unnie, the K-Pop Song of The Year Rate has been one of the premiere events this humble subforum celebrates. The K-Pop Song of the Year Rate, the KSOTY Rate, gathers all of our favourite K-Pop songs released in that year and we rate all of them and in the end, only one will remain - that one song that truly defined the year and de-wigged us the most.

    Last year's edition of the KSOTY Rate was, if I may admit honestly, a little messier than usual. @Squashua unnie had to prioritize his personal life over the reveal of the results and the rate was left in a limbo. It took several members of this subforum to get the rate back on track and thankfully, the rate has been finally completed on September 22, 2018.

    Why am I telling y'all this? It's because I know people have been scarred by that experience. People will understandably have doubts whether this edition of the KSOTY Rate will face the same fate as last year's. And with a new host at its helm, someone with no rate experience under ha belt for that matter, this KSOTY Rate is already looking like another mess - and not the good kind. And I'm afraid that we will see a dangerous decline in the number of participants because of these issues.

    As the new host of the KSOTY Rate, I can't promise anything. What I can do is present my, ahem, extensive experience as the HBIC of the K-Popjustice Charts which I have been running for 26 months now. The K-Popjustice Charts, albeit not a legitimate rate, function almost exactly like one. And I think with my experience running the charts, I can also run the KSOTY Rate this time around. I can't compete with @Squashua unnie's extensive creativity and excellence in writing a post but I can try my best and run this rate as smoothly as I can. I hope y'all are okay with that.

    2018 has been generous in giving us the most amazing K-Pop music. From forum favourites like EXID continuing their run of excellent singles, to sleeping giants like Apink releasing their best material in forever, to nugu artists like April finding the sound that works for them - 2018 has seen dramatic highs for K-Pop. And it would be a shame if not all of us are game to celebrate this amazing year for K-Pop through this rate. So I'm hoping that my words are enough to hush your worries a bit and make you excited again for the KSOTY Rate.

    Last year, @Squashua unnie introduced the concept of the Supertrash. First, he made us submit a ballot containing 17 K-Pop songs that defined our 2017. Out of these 17 songs, he made us choose our Supertrash - that one song that will get an automatic pass straight through to the finale.

    We're not doing all of that this edition of the KSOTY Rate.

    First of all, I will not make you submit a ballot containing a list of songs that defined your 2018. Why? Because I believe it would be a lot of work for all of us. And I want this KSOTY Rate to be as simple as possible.

    So what are the songs we're gonna rate?

    We will be rating all the songs that reached the top 5 of the K-Popjustice Charts from January 2018 to December 2018. We will also rate songs that didn't hit top 5 but charted for two months.

    In addition to those, I will let you choose a SUPERSARANG SONG.

    What is a SUPERSARANG SONG? It's a song, released in 2018 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.

    You can submit your SUPERSARANG SONGS starting today until December 25, 2018.

    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.
    9. 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.
    10. Accept Shaman Unnie as the true Kween of Pop.

  7. March really was THAT month of letting my faves win because nothing else good was around.

    I have a question sis, what happens when two people supersarang the same song? Is that just a wasted sarang? Do both of them get to pick a new song while their joint pick goes through?

    If it's the first one then the good sistren need to work together to avoid a mishap and if it's the second one then the good sistren need to work together even more to collude and allow some extra 2 for 1 bops to enter.

  8. The first person who chooses a song to be his Supersarang will get it. If another person submits the same song as his Supersarang, he will be notified and will be asked to choose another song.

  9. So many potential 11s!

    I already know I'm going to be the only person voting for my Supersarang Song.
     
  10. Also, y'all can choose to not send in a Supersarang Song. It's totally okay. You can still vote.

    EVERYONE IS WELCOME.

    Anyway, I'll start the promo, tagging and everything on Sunday night. xoxo
     
  11. Uh anyone who's about to not enter for a Supersarang hit me up because I have a LIST for you to choose from.

  12. I'm slightly confused about why fromis_9's Pitapat is not represented. Do I have to change my mind about my Supersarang song already?
     
  13. DDDDDD YATH LOSE YOUR MINDS OVER ONE SONG KEKEKE.

    One unnie already submitted ha Supersarang Song. xoxo
