It was interesting to see my co-host Danny’s picks for the Top 10 K-Pop songs of 2011. I’d only met him last spring, scouting him out at KSO’s annual Korean “Gayoje” song festival, but in the several months that we’ve been hosting the Asian Invasion together, I’ve come to have a better understanding of his taste in music. Just as I was this year and probably will continue to be a sucker for sugary-sweet bubblegum pop (Hyuna’s “Bubble Pop!” was my #1 song), Danny seems to be a sucker for catchy hip-hop and fierce female vocalists.
Have a look yourself; it will be a completely different view of 2011 than my own, (with the exception of Sistar19’s “Ma Boy” and 2PM’s “Hands Up,” which made it onto both of our lists).
10] Phantom – “Hole In Your Face”
Phantom made it in time before the year ended, and they sure left quite an impression.
