(G)-Idle does fill the void left behind by Blackpink pretty nicely. Lion was such a good song this year.

Love Bomb or Save Me, Save You should have won last year, but there are clearly not enough Flovers or Ujungs in here. 🧐

There was one song that was in the top 10 we did at the halfway mark that didn't crack the Top 20. Was surprising

Video is a dope concept.

Am happy thats not the singles actual beat though.

Orchestra emo rap does not need to be a thing.

Thanks juicyb for compiling everybody's lists. Nice to see Limesoda sneak in at 20.

I watched the video in suspense, expecting Apink vs Loona and then Loona showed up at 3rd...

Amazing list, not really mad about any particular song or ordering, seeing Limesoda there kind of made my day too.

Thank you everyone and juicyb for the hard work!

Thank you so much for putting the list together! It's a pretty amazing list. I'm surprised Dalla Dalla got into the Top 20. 2020 can now finally begin!

Thank you to everyone for voting, participating and waiting for the results!

That's a damn good list, 2019 truly has been a great yeat for Kpop! A bit sad to see no love for Flower Shower, Dramatic & Jopping (which all made my top 10) anywhere in this top 20, but so many songs out of my top made it otherwise! So happy for Limesoda even if they're just peeking at 20 (they truly deserve way more than that), cause I thought they'd be too nugu to even rank.

Thanks for all of your hard work juicyb it is much appreciated! Do you have to stats about who were the biggest downfalls and risers from the mid-year ranking? How it differed from it?

Butterfly at 3? smh. I'm gonna chalk that up as recency bias for Psycho.

I honestly also suspect that Psycho getting 3rd is largely due to recency bias. I put it at 16th on mine, because while it is the first good RV song in a long while, it also is just good enough, but not more compared to all the other gems we got this year. I suspect this song wouldn't have ranked this high in 6 months (just like many songs from mid-year ranking didn't necessarily make it to the final one).

Thank you to everyone for voting, participating and waiting for the results!
Thank you again for your hard work, glad to see the final list!

Yes, %% (talent) won! What a twist, it was #3 in the top 10 songs for the first half of 2019, but now it has climbed all the way to #1! I can't wait for more Apink in 2020!

Hoping IZ*ONE comes back as well, I'm sure Fiesta would've been top 5 for me last year if it was released.

(G)I-DLE was in danger, as both Senorita and Uh Oh are kinda weak compared to Latata and Hann, but Lion, with that slick MV, managed to bring them back!

2019 was the year I discovered Dreamcatcher, hope they continue to release great songs and b-sides in 2020!

Best song of this summer managed to get #11, I wish all success to Weki Meki and that Choi Yoojung manages to take care of her mental health properly.

Sunmi's 2019 output wasn't as good as 2018, but maybe in 2020 she'll go back to bops like Gashina and Siren.

CLC's No, my #1 was #15 in this list, the disrespect, far too much. Still, great job for a group that was lacking hits in the past.

Hinapia released one song and made it to the list, I can't wait for more songs in 2020. They might become my ultimate bias soon.

And never heard of Limesoda, guess I'm listening to one more kpop group.

Apink showing her juniors how you do it.

Dreamcatcher in the top 10. K-Pop ERA is confirmed legit and all is good. Hinapia got robbed though.
As much as I love Drip, it's a song that's 95% there. You can tell there's something missing and that 5% hold it from being a verified, bonefide bop. Still, great song though and the girls are very talented.

Butterfly at 3? smh. I'm gonna chalk that up as recency bias for Psycho.
I mean, after Zimzalabim and Umpah Umpah, Psycho sounds like a masterpiece. Maybe it rose because we haven't gotten a good song from them since Bad Boy.

Critically acclaimed song Psycho reaching #2 with minimal campaigning. Not everybody has that to their credit...
Just say Shizuka.

Haha I'm having so much fun reading the responses to the rankings. <3 everyone here!

The big dropper was Hwasa's - Twit which dropped all the way out of the Top 20 after being in the mid-year Top 10.

I was rather surprised (and happy) to see Icy make the Top 5. Sometimes felt like I was the only one bopping to it.

Psycho showed up in 22 people's lists (the leader in this regard).

Apink had the most number 1 with 6 followed closely by Butterfly with 5 (psycho had only 1 number 1 pick, but 5 number 2 rankings)

I had Apink at 1 and Psycho at 2. Feelsgood. I'm guessing HIP stole Twit's thunder/place.

Good work as always juicyb.

Black Swan is so good. The vocal processing is a questionable choice but the instrumental underlying it all is glorious.

Maybe Adios, but definitely not better than BBC.

I never like BBC because of the sheer over-abuse of autotune. I know it's a "vocal stylistic choice", but it's one that I think is bad and I don't like it at all to the point it makes the song grating to listen to. Say My Name is already a thousand times better than it because it doesn't sound like it abused autotune, you can actually enjoy the girls' powerful voices there.
