Billboard have released their Top 100 Songs of 2018 list as chosen by their critics, and K-pop has made four appearances!
The list features the biggest pop hits of the year, predominantly in English, but four K-pop artists made it on the list. Here they are in order of their position, lowest to highest.
No.87. IU: BBIBBI
According to Billboard's Jeff Benjamin, "The single not only comments on IU's experiences in the public life, but it doubles as a universal empowerment anthem, knowing and acknowledging one's worth and personal rights".
No.69. PENTAGON: Shine
Billboard's Tamar Herman wrote, "'Shine' is a tentative love confession delivered with a sense of campiness".
No.43. Red Velvet: Bad Boy
Critic Caitlin Kelley said that the song is "latest proof that, in pop music, it's not contradictory to be badass and soft at once".
No.22. BTS: Fake Love
On BTS' major hit, Caitlin Kelley wrote, "It's not enough for BTS to pen another break-up song - the real tragedy, they say, is the sense of self lost in the wreckage of a failed love".
