1. APINK - DUMHDURUM

she's fierce, she's addictive, she shines, she has the whole package

2. DAY6 - ZOMBIE

i think a lot of us felt this one, i appreciate day6 so much for sharing such a heartfelt song with us

3. STRAY KIDS - GOD'S MENU

two minutes and 47 seconds is way too short for this musical masterpiece and that's a fact

4. ATEEZ - ANSWER

geonbaehaja like a thunder was my quote for the longest time, this song just made me float

5. GI-DLE - OH MY GOD

gidle said gay rights and the mv is one of the hottest things i've ever seen

6. MONSTA X - FANTASIA

first comeback as 6 (yes it still breaks me) but that shouldn't stop you from appreciating their talent and hard work, this was sumn else

7. SUNMI - PPORAPPIPPAM

she isn't my favourite solo artist for nothing, sunmi is so refreshing & she once again showed it here (+ MV aesthetics !!!!)

8. DREAMCATCHER - SCREAM

i will never understand how they are still so underrated, but i'm so glad they just continue doing what they do best, which is making ART

9. CIX - REVIVAL

let's not forget about the japanese cbs, especially this one they brought out in the first month of the pandemic, it hit me hard (stan cix)

10. NCT 127 - KICK IT

i feel like i am the only one prefering this over punch, but both are absolutely sickening

11. WOODZ - LOVE ME HARDER

i've loved woodz ever since 'different', gosh he's so versatile and talented it's actually ridiculous (evil actor seungyoun is a plus)

12. TWICE - MORE & MORE

normally i'm not a big fan of these kind of edm hooks, but twice are different,, YES let ur womanhood shine QUEENS !!!

13. VICTON - MAYDAY

got into them bc of 'howling', which i absolutely love, but mayday is just god tier imo

14. SEVENTEEN - LEFT & RIGHT

they've shown many different sides, but their uplifting / funny comebacks just make me light and happy & i love them

15. PENTAGON - DR. BEBE

i love that they finally got more recognition after this,, as they should: it's straight up art and the vocals are insane

(special shoutout: itzy - wannabe
i'm sorry i really wanted to put her in the list, so she gets a special place here)
