A great year-end for 2019, with so many good songs. Like PSYCHO, SQUARE, METEOR, And so on. Among these nominees, the one those have a high chance to win is “Psycho” by Red Velvet and “Square” by Baekyerin.
Final Prediction: PSYCHO [RED VELVET]
2020 was a great year for K Pop. It started the same way as how 2019 ended. Record-breaking and chart-topping song after song. ANY SONG by Zico or BLACK SWAN by Bts will win, but the former has a slight edge when comes to digital charts.
Final Prediction: ANY SONG [ZICO]
A BTS month indeed. Four BTS songs and one IZ*ONE song is nominated, and this might go in BTS’s favour.
Final Prediction: ON [BTS]
A month with variety of music. The front runners include Itzy’s ‘WANNABE’ and Mc The Max’s ‘BLOOM’. Even though “wannabe” was popular among international fans, Gaon will give importance to digital points.
Final Prediction: BLOOM [M.C THE MAX]
A great month for girl idols. Chungha, Apink and Oh My Girl dominated the month. but the one with highest digital points is most likely to win.
Final Prediction: NONSTOP [OH MY GIRL]
