Hallyu is growing bigger and better by the minute, so hurry, catch the wave! Here are some of the best artists/songs that I recommend listening to.

"Let's Not Fall In Love" -BIGBANG

“Let’s Not Fall in Love,” is not a ballad, nor is it a party anthem. Instead, it’s a sombre, dreamy melody — for the most part — that acts as a heartfelt expression of vulnerability..."

"Loser" -BIGBANG

"Call Me Baby" -EXO

"One of the best parts about K-pop is how reminiscent it is one of the most exciting eras of pop music and "Call Me Baby" sounds wholly inspired by the late '90s/early '00s sound; sounding like how NSYNC would if they hit their prime in 2015. But of course, it's K-pop and that means EXO is not only bringing in the nostalgic feel, but doing it at a 200 percent intensity, with bigger beats, loads more hooks and adding rap and dance breakdowns. Even a finger-snap section in the bridge feels deliciously dated, even if it was presumably to add a bit of a modern beat."

"Monster" -EXO

"Touch My Body" -SISTAR

"[With] K-pop's signature recipe of a hook-heavy single and an uber-glossy video, SISTAR's "Touch My Body" adds a dollop of sexiness for a modern-day smash that will likely captivate fans along with the genre's skeptics."

"Shake It" -SISTAR

"Up & Down" -EXID

""UP&DOWN" is a bubbly song about the frustrations of an inconsistent love. Admittedly, the "up, down, up up, down" hook is ridiculously catchy. There are many layers to this song that really display strong vocals and solid rapping. There is a funky, fun backdrop to the lyrics that make it a fun, up-beat track to sing along to."

"Ah Yeah" -EXID

"What we love most about this music video is the bright colours of the various sets and also their outfits. It really enhances the summery feel for us and put us in high spirits. If you’re in need of a pick-me-up, or want to listen to something new, then why not give ‘Tonight’ a try!"

"Just Right" -GOT7

"With a crazy bouncing synth line, "Just Right" is a playful song. It's got about the same amount of raps and croons. Repetitive hooks help this song pop. It's silly and cool and fun all at the same time. The lyrics talk about how the girl doesn't need to change anything, how he finds her perfect."

"Fly" -GOT7

"Crazy" -4MINUTE

"The first song is the mad-as-a-hatter title track "Crazy." Framed by a frantic melody, the raps come fast and furious. Gayoon's beautiful vox soften the piece. Jihyun really kills it here, belting out the pre-chorus with Jiyoon."

"Hate" -4MINUTE

"Perhaps just as importantly, Very Nice maintains a deliriously high energy throughout its entire running time. From the very beginning, the track pulses forward with an addictive, go-for-broke beat."

"Gorilla" -PENTAGON
