K-pop music is getting harder and harder to rank for me as the years go by. I just hoard so much music so there’s a lot to revisit come time for list season, but there’s also so much variety that it feels pointless holding up a R&B soloist against an idol group, a rapper, and whatever Crystal Tea is. So, yes, some choices here, I don’t even know if I can call it K-pop without stretching the definition, but that’s why the scene keeps being so exciting to me: there’s still so much to explore and discover.
