Four K-pop songs are on Billboard’s list of the 100 Best Songs of 2018, the U.S.-based music brand announced on Dec. 11. 

The four are BTS’s ”Fake Love” (No. 22 on the list), Red Velvet’s ”Bad Boy” (No. 43), Pentagon’s ”Shine” (No. 69) and IU’s “BBIBBI” (No. 87). Last year, BTS was the only Korean act to make the cut. 

Billboard K-pop columnist Jeff Benjamin said that while “BTS proved that conscious K-pop can cross over, IU makes the case for deeply personal K-pop.”
