Katherine’s Top K-pop Songs of 2019: A (Somewhat) Brief Summary

Hi all! I know I said I’d be posting my 2020 favorites soon, but the perfectionist in me just feels weird not putting up a 2019 list when I have one for every other year on this blog.

Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2018: #21-30

My Favorite Songs of 2016: April – June

Around this time, I realized that there was no going back: I was officially a fan of K-pop. So I embraced it.  I watched even more MVs and variety shows. I got back into dancer mode and started to teach myself choreography from various dance practices (girl groups only so far).
