- title songs or b-sides
- MV/visual concept
- live performances
You can rank them or just list them randomly. Maybe there are also a few first quarter releases that you still enjoy or those you discovered belatedly - there are a few of those for me.
Here are my personal favorites:
Chungha - Snapping
Gotta Go was a Q1 favorite of mine and she makes my list again this time. Snap at me, queen!
Newkidd - Tu Eres
One of my favorite nugu boy groups at the moment, this was their official debut after a few pre-releases.
Chancellor - Angel (feat. Taeyeon)
A simple but very soothing song.
A.C.E - Do It Like Me
They came back with the rock-infused banger Under Cover which I also enjoy, but this b-side stole my attention. I like how the beat changes constantly and keeps me on my toes.
Sohlhee - Purple (feat. NCT Taeil)
This was actually released at the very end of Q1. Never thought I'd like a song described as trap soul this much.
Yukika - Neon
A bunch of people mentioned this in the Q1 favorites post so I checked it out, and I have been hooked ever since. The lyrics "I just wanna be alone" felt like they were written for me.
