Soompi’s 2012 Top Ten K-Pop Summer Songs

Summer is officially over.  With the shorter days and cool nights, the season is slowly but steadily transitioning into fall.  

Good-bye to blistering hot temperatures, sunny days, rainy days (if you live in Korea), hot pants, tanks, lounging about the pool, lemonade, cool slices of watermelon, sizzling steaks on the grill, BBQ chicken, corn on the cob, nengmyeon (cold noodles), patbingsoo (shaved iced treats), picnics, and beach trips.  

The changing of the seasons also means good-bye to K-pop songs that captured the upbeat happy vibe of summer.  

Here are Soompi’s Top Ten K-Pop Summer Songs.  

If we missed any songs, leave a comment with your favorite summer song.  

Psy – “Oppa is Just My Style” (featuring 4minute‘s Hyuna)  

Psy’s “Gangnam Style” should be on the list but that song has gotten plenty of air time (over 281 million views and counting), so, with my editorial discretion, I’m putting the Hyuna version here instead.  

Wonder Girls – “Like This” 

Mighty Mouth – “Bad Guy” (featuring Soya)

f(x) – “Electric Shock

After School -“Flashback

Dal Shabet – “Mr. Bang Bang” 

Super Junior – “Sexy, Free & Single” 

Baek Ji Young – “Good Boy” (featuring BEAST’s Yong Jun Hyung

2NE1 – “I Love You

Sistar – “Loving U” 

BONUS Song: Big Bang – “Bad Boy

This song should have been released as a summer song!
