Since 2015, avid users of Spotify have highly anticipated the streaming platform’s year-end reports called “Spotify Wrapped.” Here, listeners receive somewhat of a closing gift for the year; the “presents” are a breakdown of your most notable listening moments for the year, and a few other extras (such as your “listening aura”).

Over time, the reports have gotten more and more creative—with new content added in the short slideshow every year. They even let you know your life’s movie soundtrack! Daebak! 

While it brings more value to the artists who have used Spotify’s platform for their songs, albums, podcasts, etc., the service’s annual list that names the top artists and songs in a certain genre also gains much traction during this time of the year. Case in point: Spotify Wrapped 2021’s annual ranking for most-streamed K-pop artists and songs.

The K-wave is still dominating and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. Sate your curiosity and take a look if your fave artists and songs to jam to are part of the highly coveted list.
