PSY’s 2012 “Gangnam Style” MV grabs No. 7 on the list, with Billboard writing, “PSY’s video became a surprise global sensation that turned all eyes to South Korea’s music industry. Though it’s no longer the world’s most-viewed music video, the legacy of ‘Gangnam Style’ remains.”
Orange Caramel’s 2014 “My Copycat” MV takes No. 30, and Billboard writes, “Orange Caramel have never been bound by K-pop conventions, and ‘My Copycat’ represents the pinnacle of the trio’s out-of-the-box thinking with its interactive game.”

Billboard comments, “BIGBANG’s 2012 hit upped the ante for what it meant to be a K-pop music video in the 2010s: a bit over the top in its fashion choices, a bit of a criticism of society, and memorable with each and very shot offering up sensational optics.”
BTS’s 2016 “Blood, Sweat & Tears” MV takes No. 69, and Billboard writes, “Amid this lavish portrait of BTS at the height of their game, one thing is clear: the septet makes K-pop for the thinking fan.”
