INFINITE's "The Chaser" topped Billboard.com and Billboard Korea staff's list of '20 Best K-Pop Songs of 2012'.

"The Chaser" beat out tough competition by claiming 1st on the international music magazine's list of the best K-Pop songs of this year.

According to Billboard,

The group's masterpiece single takes listeners on a ride that starts the second the track starts. With an introduction packed with forceful singing, dynamic guitar licks, and dramatic violins, it almost sounds like the song will never find a true direction. But at just 50 seconds, it quickly evolves into a waterfall of 80s synthesizers (courtesy of super producer Sweetune), vocal energy and an explosive, trumpet-driven chorus. The track puts INFINITE and Sweetune at the forefront of the genre's best in 2012, proving risk and innovation in K-Pop can trump all.
