K-pop often gets pegged as a manufactured medium, leading certain music aficionados to sidestep the genre as a whole. While there’s some truth to that assessment, the South Korean music industry is littered with hidden gems aside from the most popular singles.


The thing about K-pop is that it’s a multimedia operation where the visuals are just as important as the sound. The sensory overload of promoting on music shows -- which place extra emphasis on the choreography, cinematography and fashion -- is part of what makes K-pop so addictive. But we decided to look at the deep cuts that are, for the most part, divorced from the visuals.


We tried to limit each chosen artist to one track, but there’s one girl group that had so many excellent deep cuts, we couldn’t choose just one. (Hint: their name rhymes with shmeff hex).


We decided to give our definition of “deep cuts” some breathing room by allowing fan favorites into the mix. Non-singles weren’t necessarily disqualified if they were promoted on Korean music shows, so we judged a song’s level of exposure on a case-by-case basis. For example, we decided that BTS’s original “MIC Drop” couldn’t make the cut because their heavily promoted remix with Steve Aoki and Desiigner rendered it too well-known. (Not to worry, ARMYs. Your faves still made the list.)


You may not agree with our methodology, but we’re sure we’ll turn you onto the best deep cuts in K-pop this decade.

37. 씨엔블루 - '아이의 노래' (Can't Stop, 2014)

2014년 싱글 'Can't Stop'은 씨엔블루가 접근성 높고 듣기 좋은 락팝을 주조할 수 있는 밴드라는 점을 돋보이게 했는데, 미니앨범 수록곡인 '아이의 노래' 역시 부정할 수 없이 뛰어난 트랙이었다. (캔스탑과) 동등한 수준의 접근성과 함께, 기분을 업시키는 무드와 멜로디가 가장 빼어난 콜드플레이의 곡들을 떠오르게 한다.

    There are so many hidden gems and under-rated songs that get overlooked, and I am thankful that some of these gems do get mentioned from time-to-time.
