2NE1, 4minute, Ailee, and Dynamic Duo all made our K-Pop Songs Of The Summer playlist.
As the mercury rises, it's super easy to get lazy -- and not just in terms of stationing yourself in front of the A/C unit 24/7 while wearing a bathing suit as actual clothing because SHUT UP you're not my mom. We're talkin' about your music library. That's why we've chosen our nine K-Pop Songs Of The Summer to help keep your #SummaJams from getting stagnant. See anything major we missed? Tweet your suggestions to @MTVBuzzworthy, and then stop your complaining or I WILL TURN THIS POP-MUSIC BLOG AROUND.
1.) 2NE1, "Falling in Love"
If you can't quite picture the sound of reggae dancehall-meets-contemporary K-pop, just give girl group 2NE1's dutty wine-able comeback single a listen. Even if you still can't find the words to describe this sun-kissed slow-jammer, #YourBodyWillUnderstand.
+ LISTEN TO 2NE1, "FALLING IN LOVE"
2.) Dynamic Duo (ft. Muzie of UV), "BAAAM"
One of South Korea's most successful hip-hop tag teams, Choiza and Gaeko of Dynamic Duo are giving us some SERIOUS LFO in the "Summer Girls" video vibes... except they're, like, all grown and sexy MEN now instead of SoCal Summer 1999 guilty-pleasure flings. Basically, what we're trying to say is #MERCY.

3.) 4minute, "Is It Poppin?"
There are many essential questions to ask yourself this summer, like "How many cutouts is too many in a bathing suit?" or "When should I set my ingenious plot to marry the #RoyalBaby 18 years from today into motion?" The only one that matters, however, is pop quintet 4minute's "Is It Poppin?" (FWIW, yes it IS indeed poppin'.)

4.) Ailee, "No No No"
We can't tell if Ailee's track sounds more like Amber Riley singing a Katy Perry song on an episode of "Glee," or Katy Perry singing along with Amber Riley while watching an episode of "Glee." Either way, "No No No" is the perfect song to belt with the besties as you all
key a recent ex's car light sparklers and watch the summer sun set.
