‘Cookie,’ the debut song of NewJeans, who debuted in July and is considered one of South Korea’s leading fourth-generation girl groups, has been named one of the ‘2022 Best Songs’ picked by the New York Times.
It’s not a K-pop ranking, it’s 11th among the world’s songs released this year.
Strictly speaking, the list was selected from one of three charts, each up to the top 25, voted by three experts.
Not only this. Hype Boy also ranked 24th on Rolling Stone’s year-end chart. This is not a separate ranking of K-pop classes, but a total settlement of all songs in the world.
The comeback in December is so much awaited.
