We’re just reaching the halfway point of 2020, and it’s been quite an eventful year. It’s difficult enough in a normal year to keep up with the endless stream of new releases in K-pop, but with all the chaos that 2020 has thrown at us so far, it’s even more possible that you might have missed some hidden gems over the past six months! This list features 17 songs that were way underrated for how lit, catchy, or epic they are. Whether they’re singles from under-appreciated groups or releases from well-known artists that somehow flew under the radar, these tracks deserved a lot more attention than they got, and are sure to win you over!

1. “Lie” — IMFACT

“Lie” is definitely one of the most underrated songs of 2020, given that it’s not only catchy but also understatedly beautiful. The song explores the denial and longing after a relationship has ended, wishing that it were the farewell that is a “lie” rather than the promises the couple made to each other. Reflective subject matter aside, the song’s tropical beats underly a chorus with harmonies that give the track a wonderfully warm quality you won’t be able to get enough of!
