Edward1849’s Recommended Top 20 K-Pop Songs of 2013
Edward1849 is the long-time curator of our Weekly Music Chart.
Happy Holidays everyone. 2013 is another wonderful year for K-Pop. It has really become the main genre of music in Asia now and also getting more worldwide attention. Many K-Pop artists have become international “Hallyu” stars with fans all over the world.
This is the 12th year I am writing this year end post. If you are not familiar with it, this is not about the biggest stars and their songs but some of the great songs I’ve listened to throughout this year that you may have missed. You won’t see too many big name idol artists on this countdown. But as usual, when we get closer to the top, more familiar names will appear.
It’s a great year for hip-hop music. Seven of the twenty songs are of this genre, including the No. 1 and 2 songs. As always, there are many ballad songs here as it is my preferred genre. Also, there are also many collaboration songs as it has become increasingly common today.
Note that this top 20 list is only the author’s opinion. It does not reflect Soompi’s weekly music chart and the 2013 Soompi Awards.
Let’s start the countdown. Just like the past, it will go backward from 20 to 1 to be more interesting.
