The best K-pop albums were plenty in 2022, and Billboard wants to know which one best sums up your year. RM and J-Hope released solo albums to satisfy the ARMY even though BTS remained on the break as the seven members got ready to begin their required military service in South Korea.
With its vintage hip-hop music, vibrant cover art by KAWS, and Pandora’s Box-inspired idea, J-Jack Hope’s in the Box took the lead. A star-studded guest list included Erykah Badu (“Yun”) and Anderson. Paak (“Still Life”), Tablo (“All Day”), and others were released by RM five months later with the release of Indigo.

While TOMORROW X TOGETHER released Minisode 2: Thursday’s Child and SEVENTEEN reissued their fourth album, 2022’s Face the Sun, as Sector 17, with new songs like “Cheers (SVT Leaders)” and “_World,” BLACKPINK also returned with their full-length sophomore effort Born Pink.
For her debut album in more than three years, Heize enlisted artists, including Monsta X’s I.M, (G)I-Minnie, DLE’s, and Giriboy. Lee Chanhyuk created Error, a concept album that tells the tale of a person who has gone into a coma.
Daydream, HIGHLIGHT’s first full-length release since changing their moniker from Beast back in 2017, served as a reintroduction. After winning the 2020 Korean singing competition, Mr. Trot, Lim Young Woong fulfilled his potential with his genre-defying debut Im Hero. With their self-titled debut, NewJeans established themselves as one of the genre’s most intriguing new girl groups.
