We asked the BuzzFeed Community what their favorite K-pop songs of 2019 were, and I'm ready to play all of these on repeat: 1. "Obsession" by EXO View this video on YouTube SM Entertainment / Via youtube.com "I may be being biased, but it was just phenomenal." —hoeforyeollie"'Obsession' was such a great comeback for EXO — the vocals, dance, and visuals were everything." —huangariana8 2. "%%(Eung Eung)" by Apink View this video on YouTube Play M Entertainment / Via youtube.com "Don't sleep on Apink because %%(Eung Eung) is a bop!" —huangariana8 3. "+I Quit 180327+" and "+Done 161201+" by CL View this video on YouTube SuneV / Via youtube.com "My favorite favorites. They're clearly about her trash former label, and their independent release immediately after the end of her contract with them would be an FU enough, but she had to make them SO GREAT." —k4c2fcce79 4. "Boom" by NCT Dream View this video on YouTube SM Entertainment / Via youtube.com "When it came out, I listened to it at least three times every day. The beat is amazing, and the dreamies have evolved so much since 'Chewing Gum.' This song has a mature aspect with amazing vocals. I love the sound of Jisung’s voice. It was a powerful, fantastic comeback." —kookietae"It's a certified banger, and you can see how much they've grown since their last comeback." —97jungkooky"They're the youngest members [of NCT], but this year I felt their music (and they themselves) matured so much!" —m451d89b2c 5. "Deja Vu" by Dreamcatcher View this video on YouTube Happyface Entertainment / Via youtube.com "The song is beautiful. It sounds like a perfect theme song for an anime show, and the video is absolutely stunning!" —tikamomo7 6. "Mikrokosmos" by BTS View this video on YouTube KBS World TV / Via youtube.com "Beautiful melody, beautiful lyrics. That song has all the power to lift me up whenever I’m in a bad mood and you can tell from the lyrics they made this for their fans." —heyitsmariab 7. “Zimzalabim” by Red Velvet View this video on YouTube SM Entertainment / Via youtube.com “For some people it was a miss, but for me it was definitely a hit! Did you hear the high notes, and see that dance? It may sound like a cult anthem, but at least it's a likeable cult anthem.” —moo1601 8. "Money" by Dawn View this video on YouTube P Nation / Via youtube.com "'Money' is an amazing return by Dawn, and it shows off his talent and how far he's come after being part of an over-the-top dating scandal. I'm glad he came back with such amazing music, and I'm so happy he and Hyuna are still going strong. They're both perfect. (Also, Hyuna's 'Flower Shower' is obligatory listening as well)." —moggydrake"THE song of the year!!!!" —pocotom"Soooo underrated. You don’t even have to be into K-pop to enjoy that song." —madal03 9. “Hip” by Mamamoo View this video on YouTube RBW / Via youtube.com "It's an absolute masterpiece." —bigbeanman"DUH." —corrines44283c405 10. "Nap of a Star" by Tomorrow X Together View this video on YouTube Big Hit Entertainment / Via youtube.com "It's a whimsical and beautiful love song that's very different from the more upbeat tracks (like 'Crown' and 'Runaway') that the group is known for. It's so easy to listen to on loop, and if you haven't yet, check out the music video! It portrays themes of self-acceptance and friendship, all with a heavy dose of dark fantasy. I also about teared up when I read the English lyrics. There's a reason it was my most-streamed song of 2019." —nikkil28 11. "Blueming" by IU View this video on YouTube Kakao M / Via youtube.com "I mean, the song is a bop. Nothing more to say." —reigneting 12. "Illusion" by ATEEZ View this video on YouTube KQ Entertainment / Via youtube.com "The album this was on, Treasure Ep. 3: One to All, was pretty different from what they usually do, but they killed it nonetheless. It’s such a fun song to listen to and the melody is so catchy." —heyitsmariab 13. "Butterfly" by Loona View this video on YouTube Blockberry Creative / Via youtube.com "As if loving the group and their concept wasn't enough, they had to go ahead and release this masterpiece — the music, the visuals, the empowerment, and THE CHOREO." —joevan 14. "Eclipse" by Got7 View this video on YouTube JYP Entertainment / Via youtube.com "I honestly wish I knew more people who like Got7, 'cause they’re the best. Eclipse is one of my all-time faves by them!" —n00dia_ 15. "Fancy" and "Feel Special" by Twice View this video on YouTube JYP Entertainment / Via youtube.com "I love every single song Twice released this year! Honestly they keep coming out with bop after bop and we love that! But if I really had to choose, it would definitely be 'Fancy' or 'Feel Special,' obviously because they're both SOTY (song of the year) material — and even if you're not a fan, you'll still be bopping to these songs all year." —machalatte811 16. "Shall We?" by Chen View this video on YouTube SM Entertainment / Via youtube.com "'Shall We' isn’t really 'jammable' because it’s a ballad, BUT it’s definitely a beautiful song with an adorable music video." —curlygirly6 17. "Hit" by Seventeen View this video on YouTube Pledis Entertainment / Via youtube.com "I've been a huge fan of these talented boys for a few years now, and seeing their musical progression has been so flipping awesome. They are a self-producing group, and especially with 'Hit' and the full-length album, An Ode, it was released with, it's amazing to see their growth as musicians. 'Hit' is very different from their previous comeback. It has almost an EDM feel to it, and it's been stuck in my head since, like, July, lol. The music video is equally fantastic, colorful, and so damn COOL. I always recommend Seventeen to people, and 'Hit' is one of the first videos I tell them to watch." —zintk 18. "Sunrise" by Gfriend View this video on YouTube Source Music / Via youtube.com "Such a beautiful and majestic song, and the ending with Eunha and Yuju’s high notes is ICONIC." —kittyg481a60325 19. "Savage" by A.C.E View this video on YouTube Beat Interactive / Via youtube.com "SOTY (song of the year)???" —izabela2839 20. "Kill This Love" by Blackpink View this video on YouTube YG Entertainment / Via youtube.com —rebeccah4b9eb6432 21. "All Night" by Astro View this video on YouTube Fantagio / Via youtube.com "The song is great, the dance practice is aesthetic, and the music video is mesmerizing." —animaljy 22. "Adios" by Everglow View this video on YouTube Yuehua Entertainment / Via youtube.com "Absolutely no competition; rookie of the year for sure." —taurt 23. "Astronaut" by Stray Kids View this video on YouTube JYP Entertainment / Via youtube.com "This was the first song they released without Woojin. I was reluctant to listen to it because I was still so sad from having to see him go. It’d been really hard for me to listen to them since then, but hearing the lyrics and watching the video I had this sense of joy that I can’t explain. I might be getting tickets to their concert and would love to hear it live." —heyitsmariab 24. "Flower Shower" by Hyuna View this video on YouTube P Nation / Via youtube.com —emilyymichelle 25. "Days Gone By" by Day6 View this video on YouTube JYP Entertainment / Via youtube.com "The retro feel, the MV, and the vocals. Amazing." —armanadeem13 26. "Fun!" by Fromis_9 View this video on YouTube Off The Record Entertainment / Via youtube.com —jinswaifu 27. "Dumb Litty" by KARD View this video on YouTube DSP Media / Via youtube.com "Let's be smart about this. Obviously 'Dumb Litty' was the best song of the year." —laurenn4669bc096 28. "Superhuman" by NCT 127 View this video on YouTube SM Entertainment / Via youtube.com —hufflepuff223—minghaosmk 29. "Find You" by Monsta X View this video on YouTube Starship Entertainment / Via youtube.com "Soothing. Meaningful. Heartwarming." —armanadeem13 30. "Pink Walk" by Gaho View this video on YouTube Planetarium Records / Via youtube.com "It's perhaps one of the best songs of the year, period, K-pop or not. The instrumentation is fairly simple but does its job of being a certified groovy bop. And Gaho’s vocals are incredible! The kid has serious range and the vocal bouncing effect at the end of the second verse is magical every single listen." —breannej467b52e0d 31. "Focus On Me" by Jus2 View this video on YouTube JYP Entertainment / Via youtube.com —samanthas4cc98a2a4 32. "Focus" by Kim Donghan View this video on YouTube Oui Entertainment / Via youtube.com "It's just so danceable and the rhythms make me so excited, you just can't stay still when you hear it! It was my most listened song this year, but I just can't get enough!! And Kim Donghan's looks aren't that bad either." —skrrtu03 33. "9 and Three Quarters (Run Away)" by Tomorrow X Together View this video on YouTube Big Hit Entertainment / Via youtube.com "As far as comeback tracks, my favorite was 'Run Away' by Tomorrow X Together. Their style for the whole album was so unique and different, and their voices and choreo shined so well here." —kilamenapie"I’d been following TXT since predebut, and I had absolutely loved their first album. And when I heard The Dream Chapter: Magic, I realized what I thought to be impossible: they had gotten even better in the span of only a few months. They only debuted this year but have accomplished so much and I’m so proud of them." —heyitsmariab 34. "You Calling My Name" by Got7 View this video on YouTube JYP Entertainment / Via youtube.com "It's such a catchy song that's constantly in my head!"—hoseokhopeangel711"A masterpiece. Periodt." —katchichlp 35. “Ya Ya Ya" by EXO View this video on YouTube SM Entertainment / Via youtube.com "It flawlessly blended two different genres into one song. From the beat to the chorus, it’s just a song you can’t get out of your head. And the fact they sampled SWV's 'The One?' Truly iconic." —annahensley12444 36. "Follow" by U-Know View this video on YouTube SM Entertainment / Via youtube.com "I know he’s a veteran idol, but I think a lot of TVXQ music is still jammable today." —curlygirly6 37. And last but not least, "Boy With Luv" by BTS ft. Halsey View this video on YouTube Big Hit Entertainment / Via youtube.com —quaild Here's a Spotify playlist for your listening pleasure!
