Putting a shift in interest that I’ll discuss later aside, man, K-Pop was simply on fire this year. BLACKPINK’s single (EP? Whatever man lol) was a smash hit with me. Every track was fantastic. I really love how they put quality over quantity in their releases. I sometimes do wish we heard from them more, but I’d rather love pretty much everything they do as a trade-off. The group fromis_9 is fairly new and as far as I’m concerned they are a group to watch out for as we get into 2019. Until their latest single they haven’t really made it on the charts yet, but I have no doubt that will change if they keep up what they have been doing. MOMOLAND is just a lulz factory. They’re so much fun. EXID too. Their music and especially their music videos are always this weird but enticing mix of sexy and silly. And then my favorite member of Nine Muses did a solo release and simply put, it was sexy as hell.

Really, it was a fantastic year for K-Pop. It’s no surprise that so much of my attention has been there. There has been something amazing to gravitate to every step of 2018.
