40. B.A.P- Warrior
2012 was a year of exciting debuts, and Warrior laid the groundwork for that event. B.A.P burst out of the gates with this brass-heavy, warlike production, proving to be a formidable group to fear.
39. Apink- Hush
Compared to their previous singles, Hush is a slightly mature, catchier dance-pop track that offers an enjoyable hook and a sweeter disco-influenced post-hook. The titular refrain certainly does the trick!
38. 9Muses- News
News chugs over an active synth line since its start time, hardly taking a breath while offering piercing electronic moments to save you from boredom. The production is highly addicting!
37. F.T. Island- Severely
After an electrifying guitar solo, Severely slowly takes its time before dropping an awe-inspiring chorus, letting leadman Hongki work his magic. Ever since its release, Severely's chorus stands as a timeless moment.
36. A-JAX- 2MYX
Influenced by late-90s Max Martin boyband sound, the underrated 2MYX serves the genre justice with its enthralling verses and palatable hook.
35. Super Junior- Sexy, Free & Single
Don't let the song's name fool you! Sure, there are some cringe-worthy English lyrics here, but those are heavily buried by Sexy, Free & Single's delicious electrofunk instrumental. The guys also contribute by delivering meaty vocal melodies.
34. G-Dragon- That XX
That XX is an example of a great acoustic song. G-Dragon's voice and acoustic guitar give the verses a pretty sound, while the chorus works like a total charm!
33. Sistar- Alone
Even though they're the summer queens, one of Sistar's biggest hits, Alone, is anything but a summer track. Instead, it's a sleek and sexy dance-pop single that contains an iconic instrumental opening.
32. Gain- Bloom
Bloom is a perfect example of "rich getting richer." After its verse carries out an excellent rhythm guitar, the song blooms into a soaring hook supported by flavorful vocal accents. It's like opening the windows to see a stunning view.
31. TVXQ!- Humanoids
Humanoids is precisely what the name suggests - a dystopian-like EDM production that sounds like an ambitious pleading for the modern generation to create a better future.
