Top Kpop of 2013 – Check out the videos here!
My 2013 Top Kpop
2013 was a great year to be a kpop fan.
So many promotions, so many debuts, and so many feels! This is a post I have not been looking forward to making because the year was just that damn big. I made myself choose not a top 3…no top 10. One item for each category.
Song of the Year
This is the song that I keep coming back to month after month and never get tired of it. My song of the year is AA’s Because I’m Crazy. You’re probably thinking wait how can that be your favorite song of the year? It came out in 2011. The debut single may have come out a while back, but I didn’t discover it until it was re-released on this year’s Comeback album. It’s the song I go back to from AA time and again. I love this one.
Runner up: This Love – ShinHwa
Video of the Year
My favorite video of the year. I almost can’t choose. There were so many amazing music videos this year I’ve filled a 32gb sd card with them. There is one though that I keep coming back to to show off how sexy and visually stimulating Kpop is. That would be Smoky Girl. Whether I’m on the train or at work this is the video I’m showing off on my Gs4! From G.O. smelting intro, to the sexy dance and Zion.T produced track. This one had it all.
Runner up: Tarzan – Wonder Boys
Album of the Year
There is always one album that amazes you with is quality. For me, the best album of the year is never a mini album and always a full length. I limit this category to albums I’ve purchased as well. This eliminates a lot if great singles, but they didn’t have a chance anyway. My favorite album this year was Henry’s Trap. Every track blew me away and made me a super fan.
Runner up: Grown – 2PM
Artist of the Year
This has always been 2PM for me. When I look at their live performances, length of promotions, and variety work 2PM has been my favorite Kpop act until this year.
This year another six member boy group stole the year with constant promotions, varied concepts, and videos that delighted all year. My favorite artist this year was undoubtedly the “Marathon Idols” VIXX. These guys just did not stop.
