    2017 was the stalest year for me. 2018 was much better than 2019 though.

    agree that 2019 is stale, tho UN Village is great.
    btw The War(+repack) and DMUMT(+repack) are EXO's best album. people just live in the nostalgia of EXOdus.
    anticipate EXO's comeback this winter.

    I respectfully disagree. I respect your opinion, though I believe it was full was nice bops.For me- Twice's feel special and fancy are so nice on terms of choreography and lyrics. Gfriend's Fever is a nice change of concept (Though I'm biased as you can see). Itzy's Icy is such a nice thing to listen to when you feel like dancing and so much more.

    PIRI - DreamCatcher
    Fever - Gfriend
    PickyPicky - WekiMeki
    Fancy - TWICE

    lol no, 2019 was the best year of Kpop ever.

    KTL (biggest GG hit in US HISTORY)
    BWL (biggest BG hit in US HISTORY)
    Side Effects (best album of 2019)
    Dalla (best new GG song)
    Icy (even better new GG song)
    Birthday (best solo song)
    Adios
    Feel Special
    Heartbeat
    Time of Our Life

    These are some of the best songs that these bands have ever made. Kpop is peaking right now. American Hot100 is trash.

    Probably just you preferring upbeat music?

    I listen to mainly TWICE and 2019 is all well for me with Fancy, Feel Special, Breakthrough and Happy Happy.

    Out of all the big groups, "Fever" by GFRIEND is great.

    I agree, there's very little that's memorable about this year and I doubt I'll be listening to any of the songs in 5 years, let alone 10 years. Even Red Velvet's albums were okay, but not as phenomenal as their old albums. I mean knetz basically said no to idol group music this year's except for one anomaly

    It's because bops like these get burried amongst the releases of more popular groups:

    Sorry not sorry. Exodus was probably their most hit or miss album. There were either songs you love or songs you hate. No inbetween.

    There are a lot of songs that I love this year but I agree this year was underwhelming.

    I feel like this year in my opinion had loads of memorable debuts and comebacks BUT we also need to remember everyone has different taste in music so everyone's opinion and thoughts about all the music released this year will be different. But lets be honest this year we had loads of bops and memorable mvs but you might of not found the soloist/duo/group yet as well.

    I will never get the exodus hype. :sweatr:

    This album was mediocre with the exception of two songs.
