This is hard! :lol: I was going to check some boybands to edit them in if they deserved it, too, but I just ran out of spots...

1. Gain - Bloom
2. T-ara - Don't Leave
3. AOA - Elvis
4. T-ara - Loveydovey
5. Sistar - Loving U
6. SPICA - Russian Roulette
7. Nine Muses - Ticket
8. Crayon Pop - Dancing Queen
9. 2ne1 - I Love You
10. f(x) - Electric Shock

Gain, of course, like a joyful celebration of sexuality. It wasn't just a hot video. ^o^
Electric Shock can be played over and over again.
Don't Leave - Hwayoung's raps perfect this pretty track.
Elvis - Fun and catchy. It was either this or Get Out. :P
Loveydovey - Still catchy as hell, but a little overplayed, so it fell a bit on my ranking.
Alone - I really started to like this song when I heard it covered by a rock band.
Russian Roulette - Great vocals, badass song.
Ticket - Stupidly catchy. Mention either Nine Muses or the word "ticket" and it starts to play instantly in my head.
Dancing Queen - The latest Crayon Pop song. Their songs are steadily fun, so I had to include one.
I Love You - Quite a solid track ayeh.


People like to complain on the Internet, but this year was good for Kpop imo!

EDIT: Lowered Electric Shock's spot after listening to stuff again, and replaced Sistar's Alone with Loving U 8)

I know it's my list but I still feel as I need to write a bit for each song to justify it to myself  :lol:

1. Wonder Girls - Like This
So fucking hard to pick between this and Poison. I ended up choosing WG because it speaks to me more  XD. Outside of Nobody and Tell Me, this sounds like what I think a WG song actually is. The vocals fit beautifully with the beat. Speaking of the beat, shit goes so hard. So much so, I've had the itch to write rhymes to it. Because it attracts my attention in multiple ways, Like This has to be my number one.

2. Secret - Poison
I love all the femme fatale/noir vibe to the video. The saxaphone is great. Secret continues to improve I think and Poison is the more evidence.

3. T-ara - Lovey Dovey
I remember telling myself to remember this song for the end of the year list back in January. That in itself means it has to be ranked high. Also, their practice video has Eunjung C-walking. End of story.

4. Brown Eyed Girls - One Summer Night
Grown ass women music.

5. IU - Peach
I don't care who she shares her evenings with. I don't care if she's starting to sex it up a bit during her concerts. The music is great. Peach is great. I couldn't deny it in my top 5.

6. Miss A - Touch
I gotta admit, I haven't payed much attention to Miss A. That changed with Touch. I even like the Newport Remix as well. Here's hoping I continue to like Miss A.

7. T-ara - Day By Day
Sure, the choreography isn't all that. The song makes for good walking music. Can't really explain that, but it does. Overall, T-ara has been great to me for a couple of years now. Sexy Love is their first misstep in a while, but shit two of their songs make my top 10.
8. BoA - Only One
Fucking yes. Not only did BoA come back to Korea, she came back a grown ass woman. (Was she already there? Either way she's there now.) The songs sounds like a more progressive, more mature BoA song. Pluses all around.

9. TaeTiSeo - Checkmate
The strength of the beat is why this makes my list. The trio's vocals on the track are secondary to me. The way the drums knock, especially in the beginning, it's like a break beat bboys are ready to tear it up.

10. f(x) - Electric Shock
When the song slows down and Luna floats to the surface, that is the moment where I decided I like Electric Shock.

This turned more into a 'songs I listened to more times than I can count because I loved them so much' list than an actual attempt at thinking about what makes a kpop song great, or 'the best,' and trying my best to be objective as possible listing out 10 of them from 2012... but here ya go! Maybe I'll write a thought or two if it occurs to me..

1. T-ara – Lovey Dovey
Might've listened to this song over 300 times this year. Yea.. more like 3,000.
2. Gain – Bloom
You can makeee meeee highhhh, you can make meeee flyyyyyyyyy WOOOOO! Song still gets me hype.
3. Crayon Pop - Dancing Queen
Wanted to put down Bing Bing somewhere also but I figured I'd just put my favorite song from possibly my favorite group right now.
4. Ailee - I Will Show You
I can't listen to this song and not feel better about everything. Seriously, listening to this song makes me feel like a strong woman that can take on the world... and I'm not a woman.
5. KARA – Pandora
I thought this was a really strong, quality release from a group that could have rested on their laurels with a decent tracks. *cough* SNSD *cough*... hmm? what?
6. SISTAR - Loving U
Great summer track. So chill and relaxing.
7. D-Unit – Luv Me
This track is cooler than the other side of the pillow. I mean.. Zin is selling guns while wielding a spiked bat enchanted with +1 sexy, Wooram is making meth.. Seriously I love this song.
8. Hara (of Kara) – Secret Love
#dontjudgeme #ilovethisfuckingsong #swagyolo
9. Miss A - I Don't Need a Man
I love when Kpop gets gangster. This is my gangster jam right here. I two-step in my room to this song. Or lean back like Fat Joe. Whatever mood I'm in.
10. PSY - Gangnam Style
Maybe my one attempt at a fair choice. In my opinion, you don't get to 1 billion YouTube views and NOT make it to this kind of a list.

sig not by Stryfe... but I don't have the heart to remove the shout-out

1. Wonder Girls - Like This
I was really caught off-guard with this release.  I hadn't liked any Wonder Girls songs since So Hot in 2008, so I wasn't expecting to like this song, but it slowly started growing on me to the point where I loved it.  Now if only they kept up the awesomeness with Like Money...

2. f(x) - Electric Shock
This year f(x) has become one of my favorite Kpop groups, and this song and the entire EP that accompanies it are one of the reasons why.

3. IU - Peach
Not only did she write the song, the music video for it is her singing it, accompanied only by her own guitar playing, live on the streets of Venice.  IU never fails to amaze me.

4. T-ara - Lovey-Dovey
When this song came out on January 1st of 2012, I knew it was going to be a great year for Kpop.  Great song, great dance.  I don't care what controversy of the week T-ara is involved in, I'll always love this song~

5. Hello Venus - Venus
Best debut of the year, this song was on perma-loop for several weeks when it came out.  So hope Hello Venus is able to set itself apart from the 50 other groups that debuted this year and keeps going strong!

6. f(x) - Beautiful Stranger
One of the tracks off the Electric Shock EP, this one features Amber, Luna, and Krystal.  It was hard not to put the entire EP on this list, but this is my favorite track besides the title track.  The focus on Amber's rapping gives it a different vibe than most other f(x) tracks.

7. TaeTiSeo - Library
SNSD is not the group it used to be, sadly, and I've not been a big fan of the direction they've been going... but TTS reminds me of the SNSD that got me into Kpop in the first place.  I *loved* Twinkle (see below) but when I bought the full single, it was Library that I kept going back to. 

8. TaeTiSeo - Twinkle
Dat vocal prowess! Any song that features my bias Taeyeon is a winner for me, but this song is so groovy and funky and fun to boot.  These three should just leave SNSD and form their own group.  Except maybe take Jessica instead of Seohyun =P

9. GA-IN - Bloom
Yes, the music video is very explicit and sexy, but the greater overall message that Ga-in was going for with this song and album about sex, which is pretty risky for super-conservative South Korea.  The song and its lyrics fill me with such warm happy feelings which may be related to more personal reasons but that's the great thing about music right?

10. Mighty Mouth ft Soya - Bad Boy
Such a fun, upbeat summer song that gets stuck in my head so easily, which is to be expected of Mighty Mouth.

We only have 15 votes, not sure there's point in making a ranking out of that many votes - I might extend the opening time until we have at least 20 votes >_<
