Best of 2022 Intro

So the curtain comes down on a year that, certainly as far as entertainment media was concerned, reminded us all a little of what life was like in the distant halcyon days of 2019. Videogame consoles and PC parts readily available to purchase and take home (eventually). Massive movie blockbusters that don’t necessarily need to feature comic book superheroes to draw proper crowds for a good, fun night out. Korean popular music that didn’t have to rely on a 1980s synth backing track to catch the ear.

Yet so much of the entertainment landscape still feels irrevocably influenced by the last couple of years, a phenomenon that seems oddly fitting as this site moves forward into its second decade. The gaping holes in the middle of the videogame release schedule this year are testament to that, as is the gentle wave of new films that draw direct attention to the interpersonal struggles of a post-2020 world. The arguably inevitable increase in prominence of solo artists within the K-Pop and K-R&B album space has also accelerated slightly as producers and performers take advantage of all those recently-developed introspection habits.

2022 was a year packed to the brim with games, movies and K-Pop worth discussing, and I’m going to do just that over the next 10 days. If you decide to join me for any of the next ten countdown lists, thank you for taking the time to do so, and I hope you enjoy. We kick things off tomorrow morning.



These lists represents my opinion only. I am not asserting any kind of superiority or self-importance by presenting them as I have. My opinion is not fact. To agree with me 100% is as likely as avoiding MCU fatigue. Respectful disagreement is most welcome.
