In celebrating our sixth year of the annual Soompi Gayo Awards, we are looking back the past top 10 songs from each year. With K-Pop growing in popularity around the world and evolving every year, it is nice to see what kinds of trends brought us to where we are today.
Our year end awards use the results from our weekly Soompi Music Charts. They take into account sales, air plays and many other factors to give an accurate look at how popular a song really is.
Big Bang, after winning the top song last year with “Lies,” had a strong 2008 as well with “Haru Haru” taking number 3. Rookie group SHINee had a huge debut hit with “Noona, You’re So Pretty” and landed at #2 on the chart.
After getting #2 last year, the Wonder Girls have the top song this year with “So Hot.” Since it was released earlier in the year, it had spent many weeks on the chart and had out scored their mega hit “Nobody“.
If you want to learn more about the singers and see more background info about their song on the chart, check out the original news post from 2008 and the nominees topic. In the news post, you can see what the top 20 songs of 2008 were.
