CHECK OUT OUR LATEST TOURNAMENTS!

As any true fan can tell you, there’s more to K-pop than “Gangnam Style.” Psy’s smash may be an instant—and, for now, inescapable—classic, but South Korea’s singular music scene has produced so many killer hits that it’s amazing America didn’t catch onto the sound sooner. In fact, “Gangnam Style” was knocked out in the first round of this, our epic tournament to determine the greatest K-pop song of all time. Round Two saw Girls’ Generation barely eking out a win over T-ara. In Round Three, Girls’ Generation knocked out Wonder Girls and Rain fell to Junsu. Round Four narrowed the field down to Girls’ Generation and Super Junior. Onto THE FINAL ROUND! VOTE AS MANY TIMES AS YOU LIKE until the round closes at 3 p.m. EST on Thursday, November 1.
