I think it was a pretty good year in terms of K-pop releases, especially for debut and rookie groups! It was very difficult but I have managed to gather my top 10 (title tracks ONLY), I will have a separate top 10 only for B-side tracks. I’ve also only included 1 track per artist/group otherwise Ateez would have most of these places 🙂 Also this list is obviously just my opinion!

I decided to compile a list of K-pop songs according to different moods, just for fun. These songs of course are mostly from my own personal tastes so please don’t be offended if your favs arn’t listed here, feel free to leave songs in the comments! I tried to take the sound of the song as well as the lyrics into consideration while categorising (I also tried to only have 1 song per artist per category), I hope you enjoy and maybe find something new that you like. Songs marked with a ♥ means it’s one of my all time favs and you should definitely check it out. (links lead to lyric videos on YouTube)

BTS – Blood Sweat & Tears
I certainly can’t have a most aesthetically pleasing K-pop MVs list without this now can I? I’m sticking to 1 MV per group/artist and everything about this just screams beauty to me (no not just the members). The whole set and colour pallet is gorgeous and scenes like Taehyung under the sheet and JK floating in the air are breathtaking. Also how paint features in this MV with the splattering and when it runs down Jimin’s face, just yes. This MV and the whole Wings era was inspired by a book called Demian by Hermann Hesse.

Nu’est released their 6th mini album ‘Happily Ever After’ on the 29th of April 2019. It is their first physical release as a 5 member group since Minhyun came back from being a member of Wanna One (Produce 101 S2) temporary group. For those that don’t know, Nu’est are my ultimate bias group, so there have been a LOT OF FEELS. Here are my first thoughts of listening to the songs:

This is a K-pop series of posts that me and my friend Keira decided to do for fun! The general idea for this is around on YouTube but we customised the questions to what we wanted and thought would be the most interesting. We are both big K-pop fans but our tastes tend to different as well which makes answering these questions more fun.
I’ve been in to K-pop on and off since early BoA, Wonder Girls (00’s) but became what I consider a hardcore fan in early 2017. Keira has been a K-pop fan since 2016 and she posts a lot about K-pop on her blog which you should definitely go and check out and read Part 1 to this post which is also on her blog.

A: BTS’ Wings era: “Aesthetic. Everything about this concept was beautiful and haunting.”
K: DREAMCATCHER’s Nightmare era: “Incredibly unique concept, slightly creepy yet incredibly beautiful, and I love their rock concept in general.”
