The music I’ve listened to most of 2014 is KPOP songs. So here is my list of the best KPOP music in 2014.
1) "EYES, NOSE, LIPS" BY TAEYANG
This is the best KPop song that came in 2014 and probably one of the best KPop ballads ever. The song “Eyes, Nose, Lips” really used Taeyang singing talent. Taeyang excellent singing runs and distinct tone was a perfect match with beautiful melody and production of the song. In addition the video is sexy as hell with a great homage to another super sexy video of all time D’Angelo’s “How Does It Feel.
“Eye, Nose, Lips” won numerous awards and top different music charts. Plus it’s probably the most covered KPop song in 2014.
2) "200%" BY AKDONG MUSICIAM (AKMU)
Siblings Lee Chanhyuk and Lee Suhyun of Akdong Musican are one talented Kpop artists right now. Their voices sound so pristine and innocent. There’s this delicious quality in their voices that you just want to gobble up. “200%” in my opinion is their best song they released in 2014. Also I’m in love with the video. It’s so simple and fresh with the very sneaky revelation in the middle. It is really a smart video that completely matches a great song.
3)"GROWL" BY EXO
Let just say 2014 is the year for EXO, realising 2 big songs that dominated the charts, and exploding fan base. “Growl” is the most sophisticated song EXO release so far. It’s has a great groove and swag without over doing it. It’s like everyone involve in the production put the proper amount of ingredients. The one shot filming of the video is a genius innovation of doing a box filming that SM Entertainment loves so much.
