Best KPOP Songs of All Time

Our new hallyu wave has begun. Many Korean groups are appearing and many catchy music are created. Which songs do you think catch your ATTENTION the most?

The Top Ten

1 Sorry Sorry - Super Junior Sorry Sorry - Super Junior

Kpop is nothing with Super Junior
Super Junior fighting.
Sorry Sorry is awesome.

Promise to Believe


This is the song that introduced me to Kpop and also the song that even non-kpop fans know about! Together with the splendid dance quality, Sorry Sorry has to be one of a kind that is created just for the 13 members of Super Junior. With this song Sorry Sorry, Super Junior reaches the world as they spread the pearl sapphire blue balloons across continents. Sorry Sorry is no doubt the best song of KPOP.

The best song in the world!

2 Fantastic Baby - Bigbang Fantastic Baby - Bigbang

Big Bang is one of the best K-Pop groups out there, and this song proves how amazing they are. G-Dragon can not only write such amazing songs, but he is probably the best leader any K-Pop group could have & his voice and rapping talents blow me away, & so does TOP's. Taeyang's dance moves and Daesung's strong, angelic voice is another reason why Big Bang is so popular today, and Seungri isn't just another regular maknae-- He's extremely hilarious and entertaining but I feel as if he doesn't have enough lines. Every member of Big Bang has their own unique voice that could be heard clearly in every single one of their songs; unlike some groups, where you mistake a member's voice for another member. Fantastic Baby is an extremely addictive, energetic, & fun loving song that anyone can dance to And if you haven't heard it yet then I recommend that you get on Youtube right now and listen

It's fantastic, baby

Big Bang are such an outstanding group. From their first song it was clear they stood out. Fantastic baby is one of their most successful songs and deserves to be one of if not the best kpop song

This was the song that got me into K-Pop and Bigbang is one of my favorite bands out there.
Effortlessly stylish and catchy to boot!
Love them so much! :D

3 Gee - SNSD

The most viewed KPop video in YouTube..
needless to say more to describe it, the number already explain everything..

The best song ever!... GEE is the first k-pop song that I heard and I neomu neomu neomu neomu love it! So, what you waiting for? Vote for SNSD! SONES!

So many of these songs are good, but I think Gee takes the cake as far as the most influential.
It was incredibly catchy, the girls are amazing and was a gateway song into Kpop for SO many people.
The dominance of SNSD can only be matched by Super Junior and of all of the hits from SNSD & SJ combined. Gee comes out on top.
Most YouTube views, and 9 weeks at #1 on charts? (longest streak of all time). This song changed the industry and cemented SNSD as future Kpop legends.

It's Gee by SNSD... What else do I need to say, its absolutely iconic.

The Kpop staple

4 Mr. Simple - Super Junior

Because it has combined perfectly the new lifestyle of young people and has a great rhythm, besides coming from one of the best groups in asia-- SUJU!

They won the daesang award, album of the year and many many awards for this song.. Super Junior AND ELFs RULES THE ENTIRE CHARTS! - reinakathy

You people why Mr. Simple in 11 OK that right sorry sorry in top that is ok with us super junior mr. Simple go to the top saranghe yo

Truly iconic! No one can compare to these kings! - Limitless

5 Ring Ding Dong - Shinee

Global airplay at this point.. The boys of SHINee have proved again that they are always on the cutting edge of KPOP & at the forefront of the Korean Wave!

Catchy song with amazing melody that can show their talent! I also want to vote for gee, but I can't vote for both

Breakthrough song for another boy band SHINee, it's beats and dances are popular among Asian countries as well as the west


6 Hello - Shinee

Hello is just such a great song. Everyone looks great in this. Taemin is my bias. If you have not listened to this song yet than you should. You will fall in love with the boys and be impressed with the singing and dancing. Shinee Fighting!

When shinee let out this song I was like woah! As expected from shinee perfect singing dancing and everything else please vote for shinee because they deserve it! And if you have not checked this song out please do and see their other songs as well they truly are amazing!

This is another amazing song by SHINee. The choreography is beautiful as well as each members voice. I can't even point out a specific member that did so good because the were all great.

7 Haru Haru - BigBang

Amazing Song

BIGBANG's - haru haru one of the sweetest song you will ever hear, touching lyrics with amazing 5 voices!
It's hard to find such a great song like this song.
Once you hear the song you cry even if you didn't understand the lyrics.

Love the song. GD is so amazing. He wrote haru haru and big sing it amazing. We, VIP's love big bang!

The video and song is so touching, if the song and video didn't change your life... Well you're lying.
I'd heard the song before because one of my friends covered it. I had no idea it was by bigbang so I fell in love with it all over again when I found that out and I love it. The music video makes me cry each time and it's just so powerful.

8 Gangnam Style - PSY

It may be a so called "outdated" song, but this song caught the world by storm. Almost everybody has heard it. This is seriously the most legendary kpop song ever, not only for kpop, but for the world. It is so catchy and cool that you can't help but sing along. PSY is a legend, this song is my anthem.

This song is kinda bad...

9 Bad Boy - Bigbang

Greatest song in the world. None of these on this list can compare. This is deep, complex, smooth melody here, not cheesily repeating one word like most of the songs listed here.

I love this song... The music heats my heart - iloveso2baby

The song is fun and I ilke it and the song is cool.

10 Fiction - Beast

SO Beast! Beast is the B2st forever! Please vote for them! They deserved to perform the greatest song of the year at the Olympics! Please Please vote for the best singers of Korea!

The Newcomers

? Good Day - IU

The Contenders

11 Lies - Big Bang

I fell in love with KPOP because of this song...
GD is a genius... The entire group blends well together.
There are so many things about this song that makes it amazing.
I can always relate to all the things spoken of here.

best song

This song got me into kpop, this and huru huru will always be top in my list no matter what. Big bang is the best kpop group no question

This songs representing KPop in every way. The Songs has really a sense in it and not just a stupid dance and English lines like "Oh Baby come on come on" I mean.. Big Bang is really the best and you can't compare them with others because there are REAL artist

12 Warrior - B.A.P.

Best kpop debut song ever! - Kohiroshi

This has to be the best in the list! Not because it beats the other groups but they are a rookie group that has a different boy concept instead of the common 'cute guy' concept. Their concept is mostly about justice which makes their group so much more effective and beautiful.

They're really unique from others in that they're powerful and masculine. They also have a huge variety of songs- very flexible and open to many kinds of tastes of music.

Are people serious? This song has a CRAZY beat to it (listen to the instrumental for a clear audio of the music), deep lyrics with a social message and it's extremely unique, One Shot too. B.A.P. fighting!

13 I Am the Best - 2NE1

Awesome song. The true meaning of BADASS! No female badass song even comes close to this.

what a bop

2NE1's the best! One of the best KPOP song ever! Don't understand why it's not on the top 10...

yea it is

14 No Other - Super Junior

Ohmygawd this song have me rolling around in a warm felling... Especially it is so catchy that even though I don't know Korean.. I can already sing it.. Anytime! This song deserves a higher position!

Its such a cute and addictive song

Even though you don't know Korean you will fall for this song..

No Other _Super junior

15 Lucifer - SHINee

This is such an amazing and fantastic song. The beat and complexity of the dancing and song just makes this the most amazing and complicated song in Kpop history. Plus I love SHINEee!

This song is only perfect.
The MV is fantastic.
The style clothes awesome.
Voices incredible.
I don't have any word to say how perfect is this song.

Love this song, is the best for me, Of this list, also my favorite song of SHINee is Ring Ding Dong, but this is very good, 5 stars!

You don't have to be Korean to know how perfect this is.

16 Love Ya - SS501

Wow, it's my favorite song;the song and meaning, music, dance... Every thing about this song is perfect! I'm not saying it because I'm a fan, if love ya is first, is second for me;but, this song(love ya)is perfect and SS501 performance is great! It seems they have used all their skills in this song! I love this song

This song be forever, forever, and forever.
I miss them, I want them to comeback together. TripleS will be with them forever, love, trust and support to them. SS501!

SS501, We love ya! Forever!
One of the best songs of SS501
Leader, Prince, Eternal Center, Sexy Charisma, Maknae..
Triple S will be here for you guys!
We will support you all, be it group or solo..
Patiently waiting for SS501's comeback!
Super Stars Five Forever As One, FIGHTING!

This song brings memories back to every TripleS whenever they hear it, because this was the last song of them before separating for solos and also the best SS501's song. Composed by Steven Lee, 'Love ya' in my opinion is one of the best songs in the world that you should have listened to even at once.

17 Sherlock - Shinee

I'm so curious yeaah. It still the hit with their hit movement dance.

They always sing well.. there dance moves is GREAT as always.. I love SHINee.. They are my Forever idols

Love this song! SHINee for life!

Best SHINee song (: Fighting!

18 If You Were Like Me - Kim Jang-Hoon
19 Gentleman - Psy

I personally like this song a lot

It's okay...Oh yes, whoever put Hangover on the list needs to go hear Anaconda a few times


20 Good Luck - Beast

It's catchy and I love B2ST ENOUGH SAID

21 Star - Heize
22 Sexy, Free & Single - Super Junior

Super Junior's blend of harmonious voices + catchy tune = no doubt another awesome KPop song. Come to think of it, one of the reasons why I'm starting to like Super Junior, aside from the fact that they all look unexceptionally hot and purely handsome. :")


Sexy, Free & Single - Super Junior Is The Best! Super Junior Daebak! You're Are The One & Saranghae & - choichaemishiiellvybeautyhotte

Sexy, Free& Single _ Super junior

23 Heart Attack - Aoa

Probably one of the biggest songs of summer last year for Kpop. Heart Attack was what made them solidify their position as one of the biggest Kpop girl groups of today

This song is wow for a band which was...

Check Yuna in the changing room!

24 Bonamana - Super Junior

It's super junior song so of curse it would be the best &

Probably one of the best SJ songs. It has a great beat and can easily get you dancing.

Oh this song I can't say anything about it
It's just AMAZING!
I love all songs of super junior

Amazing song! Love this song! Yeah of course it's Super junior, so it's an amazing song like them.

Best of the best. They're the most successful rookie group. Congratulations SMEntertainment. You've trained the boys really well.

Undeniably the best song I've heard in my life

Amazing song and music video...their dance is awesome too.!

This song is the start of my passion for kpop songs, best song ever

26 Hangover - Psy

Snoop Dogg!

27 Mirotic - DBSK

One of the multi award winning song from TVXQ.. The best MV.. From the title itself "mirotic" once you listen to the song the beat/melody will just keep poppin'on your head and when you know it you'll just find yourself getting addicted to it.. In short, it's "erotic to the ear"-AKTF!

This is the sexiest k-pop song ever! It's the truth. Just watch the MV or every single performance, it's just totally sexy

I love dbsk. Thank him for becoming dbsk. Kim jae joong, thank you for being a hero. Jung yun ho, thank you for being a U-know. Park yoo chun, thank you for being a micky. Kim jun su, thank you for having become Xiah. Shim chang min, thank you for being a max. Thank you did not abandon his dream of whether he should sacrifice a lot. Thank him for his hard work as if he had just debut to prove that dreams are only dreams if not put your heart into it. Thanks for letting me be a Cassiopeia. Thanks for trusting her to know even the most desperate time. Thanks for giving me friends I never thought possible. Thanks for appearing in the lives of children. Because it's the way he chose, so I will go with him

Hot and powerful fill in one with DB5K charm.
Powerful and beautiful voices fill in one harmony. It is amazing song ever!

28 Roly-Poly - T-ara

This song is really, really catchy. I am a SNSD fan and this is the second most listened song on my phone! And there are many songs that I had on my phone before I had this one, so that is a proof for me that this is probably the best K-pop song.

The most addictive song ever, catchy phrase, nice dance, and easy to sing too makes this song a must listen to all who loves k-pop

Roly Poly! Song that can definitely enjoy by listener with different ages.

Legendary song!

29 Like This - Wonder Girls

Best 2012 single by the Wonder Girls! From the album Wonder Party!

Like this yo! Like this!

The last song of a legendary girl group, with a catchy dance and lyrics that you can sing too, no matter what!

30 Vibrato - Stellar

Stellar was 1 of the first kpop groups I discovered on youtube, so they will always be a special group to me, they were a very underrated group and sadly never got a show win, even though the music shows are corrupt, they are very important to groups for increasing their stature, stellars song (crying) is actually my favorite song from the group.

31 Neverland - U-Kiss


A fast-to addict song. I'm addicted since I was listen/watched their teaser, it was just too great! And when it was finally officially released, I am the happiest person ever!

This is the song that really got me into U-Kiss. The choreography was amazing and the song itself was just so catchy. Every time I hear this song I can't help but have the urge to get up and dance. Everything about it was perfect.

Neverland album all good song
I love every singer song in neverland album can listen all the time.
Catchy addicted beautiful
u kiss fighting

32 Again & Again - 2PM

I really like them
Although there are many problems with them in 2009 I still like them
They are very compact, although there is a problem
And I am very pleased with this song again and again
With their choreographer and lyrics
I hope they have this award
Love you 2pm and jay park
Fighting oppa
Wishes best for 2pm

Best song ever I love it in fact instead of super junior 2pm was the band that started kpop for me since I'm a foreigner. Everyone says snd, big bang or super junior now a days. I'm waiting for their comeback so badly

Breakthrough song for boy band 2pm, along with their ex leader, Jay Park

I think the song is brilliantly produced and the boys did such as great job. It's meaningful as compared to the other songs in the top 3. At least they don't repeat the same old words in the song or copy tunes from other artists. First kpop song I heard. Forever favourite!

33 I Love You - 2NE1

I Love You, I Am the Best, Fire and any other 2NE1 songs should be in top5 cause their songs are awesome... I Love You is the new concept of 2NE1. They are trying something new in their music and I love it. Teddy Park you are the best. You make awesome music for them and thank you 2NE1 for always delivering them to us Blackjacks and the new Blackjacks or Kpop fanatic. I hope they will continue to make their awesome music!

Only 11th place? Its a great song that deserves to be higher!

18, really?

One of the best songs from them... Fighting 2ne1

34 My Heart is Beating - K. Will
35 In Heaven - JYJ

The best song from JYJ. The massage from JYJ to their fans. JYJ is the best. Forever together, happy together. JYJ can't back down. Rise up to be the 1st best of Korean group.

This is by far one of the most beautifully composed and written song in Kpop. Truly touching and is always sang with heart.. JYJ, I believe in you guys! Fighting! & - paulinealedia

This song is very awesome, make me cry, haha #laugh out loud#
and the MV is very very amazing, especially KIM JUNSU

The song is making me touched. The lyrics and song and the scene in video are so awesome. Their heart voice can reach whoever that listening the song. And after all obstacles they went through, they amazingly can rise like rite now

36 Nobody - Wonder Girls

The song is liked by all walks of life. Little boy (even babies), young people, adults, elderly, all love songs Nobody Wonder Girls. Evidence of this, their song can be translucent to the American market. And entered the RANKING 1 on the Billboard. So, what do I need to think long about who the best of the Best KPOP Song of All Time? The Wonder Girls, the answer

This is the best kpop song because it is the first kpop song that goes to the billboard hot top 100. The nobody also conquers the world Wonder Girls Fighting!

I love them, their personality is great and yeah they're pretty! Their song is good! Forever wonderful

The fact this song paved the way for many Kpop groups in the future yet never got recognization by nowaday ignorant fans is the dumbest thing on the planet. Girls deserve better

37 Save Me - BTS

BTS songs lyrics touch your heart with their message

Their music is the best

Maybe not Save Me (for best song) but the songs are AWESOME

Best of best are bts

38 It's You - Super Junior

This song was the last MV as SJ13 and in my opinion it's the best! :3 Maybe it wasn't as big a hit as many of their other songs but it is much loved and is deniably great.

I will love Super Junior - It's you and Infinite - The chaser FOREVER. Hangeng is in this music video and it makes me happy and an emotional wreck all at the same time! SJ13

That's not the most popular one but that's my favorite.
I really love the fact that it's the last MV with all of them.
It start to love them because of this MVP it was the second one that I watched just after sorry sorry of course.
And I still love to listen to it
FrenchELF forever

39 It's War - MBLAQ

The song really suit them very well.. No one can bring the charismatic feel like MBLAQ..
thanks to It's War, I'm an A+.. (the fact that I've never being a fan of any idol group)..
but, It's War open up my eyes to see how amazing MBLAQ is..

Great song. Performance is intense joining dance and acting. Melody is just addicting. Vocals? Superb... It can make anyone listening feel the intense emotion that is so MBLAQ.

This was my gate to kpop I love it so much and also the band. Members of MBLAQ are awesome and funny and so so cute, I loved them since idol show

All of the members are genuine, sincere, very good looking, good dance, good voice, good body, one word is: awesome... because of MBLAQ I started to love KPOP... love ya guys...

40 Genie - Girls' Generation

Snsd has the highest number of top quality kpop songs out there, its not even close, and genie is second to none, and when Taeyeon comes in during the bridge with her epic back vocals, and as you listen in awe! and watch the mv, you come to realize that genie is the greatest kpop song of all time! Period.

Love the song..
Love the music..
Love the choreography..

Voters are blind. WHAT? 24? CRAZY

My favourite kpop song

41 Last Romeo - INFINITE

It is excellent. Song and dance are very very perfect.

42 BTD - Infinite

They are the coolest group that I ever met! Their choreography also amazing! Plus they are known as dancer group because the synchronization was superb! Japan T.V. show also made some experiment about the synching in their dance move the result is 99.9% sync! It awesome! They are the trend idol in Korea and currently busying to expand their music to Japan and also others country.

INFINITE is not just an idol... They are for INSPIRITSS! They are INFINITY! Their 99.9999% sync make the INSPIRIT falls for them.. The one and only! INSPIRIT have to be a good friends... So vote them for me! Come on INSPIRITSS! Vote them for me!

In my opinion BTD is one of the best song of 2011. Powerful song with awesome dance. The scorpion dance is one of the coolest dance by kpop group. Even their dance 99,9% synchronized

Infinite scorpion dance AWESOME!

43 Fake Love - BTS

Fake-u caaake

I love joonie for lifeuuu

It's so hot when kookie lifts up his top so we can see his abs

Love you so bad love you so bad I love this song

44 Fire - 2NE1

2NE1 is simply the best out there. The group brings a in a new breed of kpop fans with their rebellious image and aggressive and confident sound. The group is consistent of four members, each with her individual personality and set of skills, gathered together under YG, in the competent hands of in house producer Teddy Park. Although a very risky experiment, this proved to be the most successful recipe in kpop, as they broke the barrier into the more underground upbeat music full of swag that only male groups were allowed to express. Fire is their official debut track, which probably made for the most explosive and mesmerizing debut any girl group had.

This song is awesome, the first time I heard it I immediately loved this song. This song make me want to listen to this song over and over again

2ne1 is the band the k_pop
This song is awesome, the first time I heard it I immediately loved this song. This song make me want to listen to this song over and over again
Thumbs upthu

They Have Originality! Ugh! Supporting!

45 Blood Sweat Tears - BTS

This song is so unique and is how I got introduced to KPOP. It has a nice beat, it's BTS, lyrics, it's BTS, dance moves, and it's BTS. Oh also, it's BTS. BTS keeps me alive. Their songs are so good, but this one is ma jam.

This song is just so different from the rest. Its absolutely mesmerizing and is not based on the same old concept of girl/boy crush. I don't know why its not higher up on this list.

I showed this to a friend of mine who said she didn't like k pop...she was like what is this this is the best song I have ever heard, ever sonce she listens to it all the time, and other BTS songs

This song is by far the most different from the songs bts has produced. The MV is extremely artistic and riddled with lots of references and symbolism. The song has well written lyrics and has been awarded with many achievements. If you haven't seen the video yet, you should definitely check it out as well as BTS!

46 Cry Cry - T-ara

Because I like all T-ara song and their songs make me feel something

I really really love this song

I LOVE this song
Cry Cry can't you see the music... Hot like fire... you R my boy

47 Oh! - Girls' Generation


"Love This! " Girls' Generation rules! I'm not a fanatik fans but I love SNSD especially Sooyoung and Hyoyeon!

Love it so much!

48 Whatta Man - I.O.I.
49 Error - Vixx

One of the best songs by VIXX. This is the reason I fell in love with VIXX.

Vixx is the best

Loved every bit of it.No doubt they are the 'concept idols'.

The song that made VIXX a sensation to reckon with...just love matter how many times I have listened to it or seen the mv. Absolutely awesome lyrics and music! One of the best kpop songs in my opinion!
